Date Makeup: Staple Beauty Products for a Date

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.
