How nice it is to be organised.
I can’t tell you how utterly annoying it is to reach for something and find YET AGAIN that the thingummy you’ve picked up is the broken one or the wrong one that you never ever use. It’s such a complete and utter waste of time, when all you’re trying to do is get out of the door.
When that comes to make-up in the morning it’s incredibly maddening.
A minimal and organised make up bag should be a well ordered piece of kit and designed to have only your favourite essentials for getting you through the day. Don’t cart around half of Boots unless you really have to.
A few suggestions for the daily kit;
Brush or little comb
A lipstick/gloss or a small tin of petroleum jelly
Eye pencil, maybe 2 in different colours
Concealer or light reflecting concealer
Mini pack of wet wipes
If you use an eye pencil then you must add a decent eye pencil sharpener. Standard pencil sharpeners don’t work! they will ruin your lovely eye pencil
I always add painkillers a BB Cream and a liquid or gel eyeliner.
So from today, make a promise to yourself that the next time you pick out the wrong eyeliner /lipstick / mascara, you will take it out of your make up bag and either put it away or put the blessed thing in the bin and have done with it.
What are your absolute make up essentials?
