Date Makeup: Staple Beauty Products for a Date

Date Makeup: Staple Beauty Products for a Date

Share

I'm one of those people who has to carry my life around with me in my bag -- iPod, sunglasses, three packs of gum, magazine, tissues, flyers, Advil...to name a few. It's only natural that I lug my big makeup bag with me everywhere too (it seriously has to weigh 5 lbs on its own). Not that I wear a lot of makeup everyday, but you never know when you're plans get suddenly rearranged after work and you find yourself trekking down to Brooklyn for a show.

 

I'm reforming my ways, especially for times when that big hobo bag just doesn't go with a cute outfit for a date. When I have to downgrade on space by switching to my clutch, it breaks my heart to have to sort through products and just pick out the bare essentials. After doing this countless times though, I realized most of the makeup is just my safety blanket - I don't need it, but it feels good to know that it's there. I finally found that I probably reapply only once after dinner, and have come up with my 3 products must-haves: TheBalm concealer for quick touch ups, a nude gloss (like Maybelline Lip Polish in Nude Flash), and Boscia Rose Blotting Linens which helps to absorb oil and shine. In a weird way, knowing that I don't have as many things to fiddle with in my bag helps me enjoy my night more.

 

What are your beauty staples for a date?
