Now that the new bag is empty, it’s time to make sure the essential items are inside. One great step to take is to make sure your lips are never dry. Have some sort of lip balm. It can be used solo or under your lip color for the day. You can keep it classic with Chapstick or go for something else. Try Volupté Tint-In-Balm by Yves Saint Laurent.

Never leave the house without your mascara either. If you used a colored mascara, you should either have it in your makeup bag or  buy a second one as backup. However, if you are one that likes to keep it classic black, replace your old wand for a new one. Marc Jacobs Beauty Feather Noir Ultra Skinny Mascara.

What good would a new makeup bag be without a fragrance. While you are in the powder room freshening up, your makeup does not have to be the only thing you reapply. What should you do when you don’t want to carry around your full bottle of perfume? The solution is easy, purchase a travel size version of your signature fragrance. Angel by Thierry Mulger is an angelic fragrance that now comes in a size you can carry everywhere so you can smell beautiful all day long.
