Being a working girl as I am, I had to figure quick ways to look my best even when I don't have the time to do so. Most mornings I don't find the time to pamper myself at home, so I had to create a Beauty kit that I could use on my way to work, or when I got to work. 

I like to keep my makeup simple and just enhance my natural beauty, I don't like heavy coverage or very bold eye makeup, I just enjoy to add little touches to keep my face looking fresh and natural.

MY ON-THE-GO BEAUTY KIT

+ Lip balm. I never leave the house without a good lip balm. I love my lips, so keeping them hydrated during the day is a must for me, and it's also a great way to add a little shine to the lips. I like using my Caudalie lip balm, it smells great and my lips feel soft and hydrated. TIP: If you love to keep your lips moisturized the Glossier Coconut Balm is perfect!

+ Mascara. Everyone knows that the eyes are the window to the soul, and a little bit of mascara makes a huge difference. Even if you only use mascara and nothing else, your eyes will look great! I don't enjoy over the top lashes, so my Benecos mascara does the trick.

+ Eyeliner pencil. Whenever I need to define my eyes for any reason, my eyeliner pencil does the trick. It gives me a little more confidence when I wear it because it makes my eyes pop! It's also a great ally when you need to transform your look for a date or a night out. I like using the Lily Lolo eyeliner because the color is so rich and it lasts me all day.

+ Natural face coverage. On those days that I  do need a little bit of covering up I like to have in hand a BB cream or something simple with a very light weight coverage, just to conceal the redness on my face and give it a little glow. Even when I had acne I hated the look of too much foundation over those pimples. My BB cream from Lily Lolo gives me the perfect amount of coverage and a great glow. TIP: the Glossier Perfect Skin Tint seems like the perfect coverage to use when you just want to enhance your natural beauty.

+ Rich Oil. I always take with me a face oil, I use them a lot when I feel that my skin need a little bit of moist, and it also helps with some pimples sometimes make a visit. I use the Balm Balm Frankincense oil every morning and my sink feels fresh and ready for the day, and when I have a pimple or two, it helps with redness and to calm my skin.

+ Hand cream. Another essential, especially in the cold months, having a hand cream nearby is really a life saver for me. I wash dishes a lot in my work, so my hands get very dry by the end of the day, but by applying some hand cream during the day I can avoid dry hands by the end of a day's work.

+ A bright Lipstick. I love to take with me a nice bright lipstick. There are moments when I feel like I need to add a bit of color to bright my day, my go to color is always an orangy red lipstick. I like to wear my Chubby stick in Heftiest Hibiscus.

  1. Adorei a foto! Esses produtos tem embalagem muito bonita (sou dessas que compra coisas pela embalagem). Pra trabalhar eu uso quase nada, só um pó e batom, mas pra sair eu uso sombra e batom mais escuro. Também não tenho muitas coisas, tanto que tudo o que eu tenho cabe em uma necessaire. Pretendo fazer um post assim também, em breve. :)

  2. Para o dia-a-dia levo apenas o básico na mala. Apenas um baton ou gloss que estiver a usar no momento, uma amostra de perfume, escova, um creme de mãos e um espelho. Só uso sombras quando saio à noite, durante o dia, máscara, bbcream/base e blush são o suficiente para mim ;)

  3. I've been cutting down on certain products - as I've used them up, I've not replaced them. But for some strange reason, I really miss having a face scrub! I looked online for recipes, so I could make my own, but I just haven't got round to it. Are there any products you missed & re-introduced into your routine?

    1. I also do miss using a scrub, but from time to time I use ground coffee grounds as a scrub. On my body and face. It's and amazing scrub (you do have to be gentle) and you skin feels so great after using it !

      But beside that, I don't miss anything, because I kept everything that I would need and use on a daily basis.. and a few that I use less regularly.
