Beauty Boot Camp: What's in Your Makeup Bag? Video

Justin Henry shows you what you should keep in your makeup bag.

One of my essential things about makeup and makeuping is that you wanna minimize the space that you??re gonna have it in. Basically, I can do everything that you need in one small bag. And this bag is transferrable to traveling overseas, work or even just play. What I have in here is a myriad of things such as moisturizer. You must take that with you especially in the summertime, you wanna rehydrate at all times and making sure your skin is luminous and not dry. Along the same lines I have a small bottle here of rehydrating elixir water, and basically, it??s a combination of essential oils with organic water that you spritz over your foundation to rehydrate your makeup look. Powder, depending on your makeup and your makeup style. I think it??s always great to have compact powder to retouch and degrease or de-shine your T-zone and your forehead, which after say 4 or 5 hours in warm weather or in the office can actually create a high sheen, and you don??t necessarily want that on your forehead or your T-zone. Eyeshadow palette comes from every single makeup company in the world. Maybelline, Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior, and with that, you can have your two looks. You could have your day office look and also your evening look that you??re gonna apply on top of your day look in one palette. Then of course, if you need full coverage foundation, I love Kevyn Aucoin. That??s an incredible brand and it gives you full coverage, it??s long wearing, and it has an amazing color range from everything from Caucasian to African American and Asian skins. And then, of course, lipstick. Now, whether you wear lip gloss, as in this case from Dior, or if you wear lipstick or lip stain, but you obviously wanna reapply that after eating and a long day at work, you definitely wanna make sure your lips are looking fresh. And everybody??s essential of course is mascara. I use DiorShow. The one is Unlimited, and it??s easy to reapply your mascara. It makes a huge difference and it??s literally a makeup tip that will take you from day, because it??s a long-wearing thing, into evening by just reapplying another-- an extra coat. And then lastly, of course, in case you need to touch up dark circles, pimples or blemishes, or maybe rosacea, or anything like that, your touch up pen, I use Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat. And like I said, it all fits into this small bag and basically, I??m able to give you evening, red carpet, or just for the office, going out, hanging out with the girls, in one small kit that you can totally take anywhere.
