What’s the secret to having flawless makeup when you’re constantly on the go? A touch-up kit features essential tools to keep your hair, skin, and makeup looking freshly applied no matter where you are.
How can you build a touch-up makeup kit?
A few essentials on hand are powder, concealer, or brushes to keep your makeup fresh 24/7. In addition, this list is customizable, so you can feel to add to it or swap products for something you reach for constantly.
A powder will help control and minimize shine as you go about your day. For example, keep a translucent powder to dust away sebum or for a powder foundation to add extra coverage. Each product will work for varying skin types or purposes.
Another helpful product to keep handy is concealer. Sometimes products can easily budge around the nostrils, under the eyes, or near the mouth. So, a concealer can add coverage back to the skin and delete redness or flare-ups.
Lip gloss is a simple and effective product that can transform your look. It offers a sultry sheen that can be worn alone or paired with your other lip products. In addition, gloss will add texture and dimension, creating a cohesive makeup look at any time.
Cheek products are one of the first things that may disappear from your makeup look. Blush and bronzer may only sometimes last, so it can be helpful to keep them in your touch-up kit. These cheek products instantly bring life back into your skin.
Smudges can be scary, especially when you’re rocking a bold and sultry eye look. Sometimes your mascara can flake without you even knowing. A great way to tackle fading eye makeup is with q-tips to diffuse harsh lines and fallout effortlessly.
You’re usually on the go when creating a touch-up makeup kit. A hand sanitizer will ensure your fingers are free of bacteria before reapplying or touching up your makeup. Also, it will be helpful for moments when a bathroom isn’t available.
Travel-Size Brush Kit
It may be impractical to bring your entire vanity while on the go so that a travel-size brush kit can size down your makeup bag. Mini brushes can help touch-up makeup and apply more when needed without the added bulk.
You can also toss in a small compact mirror to ensure you can see everything!
Touch-up kits can also include hair and skin care. For example, a hairbrush will instantly eliminate tangles and keep frizz to a minimum. Also, hair clips will keep wispy hairs in place to help rock a new style or to have easier access to the face during touch-ups.
It’s crucial to reapply your SPF every few hours, even for makeup wearers. Stick and spray SPFs make it convenient to reapply sunscreen without messing up the rest of your look. This will ensure you stay protected while keeping a flawless face.
Did you know you can touch up your makeup without adding more products? A beauty sponge can blend away creases, cakiness, and smudges for an airbrushed result. In addition, it soaks up the excess product, so you don’t have to reapply multiple layers.
Finally, a facial spray will rejuvenate your skin and senses. You can opt for a setting spray to get more power or a light mist to keep the skin hydrated. These sprays can also dampen your beauty sponge for moments you need to touch up!
