I saw this awesome post by Corinne at Necessary Nothings and it inspired me to share my picks and find out what yours are!
You have 2 minutes to grab your 5 absolute must-have makeup items before being whisked away to a secret destination. Where are you going?! You don't know. The clock is ticking!
For me, the first thing I'd grab is the brilliant multi-tasker that is NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer. It's a moisturizer! It's got almost as much coverage as a foundation! It's going in the bag!
On to the eyes! I'd toss Maybelline Volum Express Pumped Up! Colossal Mascara in the bag, followed quickly by my daily must-have, Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Soft Brown. To think I only just made filling in my brows part of my permanent morning routine this year is shocking to me! How have I gone 34 years without this crucial step?! Tick, tock! There's no time to lament brows of days past!
Next, my fave category: blush. Or as my husband calls it, "rouge", because he's from 1914. For this destination unknown adventure, I'd go with my trusty steed of cheekery, Benefit Dallas. Depending on where it's placed on the face, it could be a blush or a bronzer, and it goes with anything.
Last but certainly not least, lips! I'd round out my grab-n-go bag with NARS Salamanca Lip Gloss since it can be built up for a pop of color, or applied sheer for a hint of watermelon pink shine.
So, hot shot, what 5 ride or die products would make it into your getaway bag? ☺
