Home Makeup

Organize your makeup either in your bathroom drawer, on top of the counter, or in a box. Keep basics and items used only occasionally separate. At least twice a year make sure your colors and formulas are working. Basics include:

  • Concealers and correctors
  • Foundation or tinted moisturizer
  • Powder (two colors)
  • Eyeshadow (three to four basic colors)
  • Eyeliner (powder and gel)
  • Mascara
  • Blush (powder or cream)
  • Lipstick, gloss, lip pencil



Everyday Bag

Pack the following essentials in a small bag:

  • One or two palettes that contain your foundation, concealer, blush, and lip color
  • A compact of pressed powder with a mirror
  • A basic eye palette—the smaller the better
  • Mini mascara
  • Lip gloss
  • Mini brushes
  • Small sample sizes of face cream



Evening Bag

Tiny purses don’t lend themselves to toting around lots of products, so you need to be selective. Pack the following items:

  • Lipstick or gloss
  • Lip pencil
  • A powder compact
  • Customizable face palette (containing concealer, foundation, blush)
  • Mini perfume
  • Breath Mints



In Your Desk Drawer

It’s worth investing in duplicates of your makeup to keep in your office to freshen up before a big meeting or for reapplying if you need to go straight out after work. These basics include the following items:

  • Concealer
  • Foundation
  • Pressed powder (with mirror)
  • Blush
  • Lip balm, lip color, and/or gloss
  • Black eyeliner and white or silver eyeshadow to create an evening eye
  • Mini brushes
  • Travel toothbrush and toothpaste set


  • Collect deluxe samples from makeup counters-they are perfect for travel.



In Your Gym Bag

  • After a workout, you will want to clean your face and start your makeup from scratch. So be sure to bring the following items to the gym:
  • Face-cleansing cloths
  • Moisturizer
  • Customized face palette, or at least a tinted moisturizer, lip color or gloss, and mascara



For Travel

Keep your travel kit packed at all times so you never have to worry about arriving somewhere only to realize you’ve left something important in your bathroom cabinet. Invest in several small plastic bottles, label them, and fill them with your essentials. Purchase mini brushes, mascara, and a small eye palette. Include the following items:

  • Travel-size shampoo and conditioner
  • Body and facial moisturizers
  • Makeup palettes with all your basics
  • Mini mascara
  • Face powder, bronzer (great for the travel-weary)
  • Self-tanner
  • Lipstick or gloss
  • A brush roll of travel-size brushes
  • Tweezers
  • Hairbrush and hairspray
  • Perfume in a mini or compact version
  • Perfumed body creams are also great
