As annoying as it is to see my makeup disappear as the day goes on, I have to admit that “super-long-wearing” makeup usually doesn’t appeal to me. On one hand, I’m a little suspicious of the chemicals that the product contains to essentially stain the skin (they can’t be that healthy, can they?)—but besides for concerns about potential toxicity, I find many long-wearing products to be cakey, drying, or simply unflattering. So, what’s a girl to do when she needs to look good all day without applying layers of super-strength spackle? Easy: it’s all about the on-the-go makeup kit.
I promise that there are many days that I run out of the house with nary a lipstick on me (I am a crazed new mom, after all), but on days when I need to look put-together, nothing makes me feel more confident than knowing that I have teeny versions of everything I need to maintain my look throughout the day. I rarely re-do my entire face, but knowing that I have concealer to cover the wayward pimple and brow gel in case any hairs go astray makes me feel like a Girl Scout: prepared for anything. And hey—the fact that these travel-sized products are adorably miniature is just icing on the cake!
