Whether you’re out at a club with your friends or just having a long day at the office, you’ll probably have to quickly touch up your makeup at some point during the day or night. You definitely don’t want to re-do your entire makeup routine! Our best make up tips empower you to look fresh on the go.
Best Make Up Tips: Touch Up Products We Love
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder
A pressed powder is important for controlling shine, especially when it gets hot on the dance floor. Keep this transparent powder in your handbag with a brush to use on your nose, forehead, or any other area you might get shiny. It’s ideal for all skin tones and won’t leave a powdery residue inside your purse at the night’s end.
Manic Panic Eye Wear Duo Shadow and Liner
For nights out, I also love products that are small. (No one wants to lug around a big, heavy purse.) This eyeshadow and eye liner duo is compact and perfect for the smokey eye look. It even has a mirror and a brush, so you don’t have to find a crowded bathroom to complete your touch up.
Almay Makeup Eraser Sticks
These eraser sticks are pure genius! They’re cotton swabs with makeup remover ready to be soaked into the ends. These are perfect for fixing makeup runs or accidental smudges. It’s also great if you caught in the rain on the way to the office.
L’Oreal Studio Secrets Professional Magic Lumi Highlighter
Highlighters are great for refreshing your whole look without spending a great deal of time on makeup reapplication. A few quick swipes of this highlighter around the eyes and cheekbones will make you look more awake and fresher faced. This highlighter is definitely a secret weapon for long meetings.
Revlon ColorStay Overtime Liquid Lipcolor
Lip stains are the way to go for day-to-day use or for going out. They’ll stay on your lips for several hours and come in several great shades. Just reapply the top coat whenever you need a boost of shine!
e.l.f. professional Shine Eraser Blotting Sheets
Not everyone wants to carry a compact of powder and a brush with them. If you’re limited on space in that cute, tiny clutch, try these oil absorbing sheets to control shine. They’ll get rid of oil and leave behind a small amount of matte powder to blend in. These might just become your favorite accessory.
