Like I said in my Sequins and Sushi post, my life was caught in a chaotic routine (yeah, try and figure that one out). I was constantly waking up late for work and scrambling to look somewhat pulled together. I’ll be honest, it was a failure most days. In order to survive the cycle of constantly running late, I started to create shortcuts for myself.
I created go to outfits, lunches became quick grab items, and I made a grab and go makeup bag. I know I’ve talked about having a makeup bag or clutch handy with essentials for going out after work (find that here), but this is different. This is more extreme.
In this bag, I have:
Skincare essentials – travel tubs filled with coconut oil and a moisturizer.
Makeup – Loreal Foundation Cushion, NARS Creamy Concealer, Nyx Stay Matte But Not Flat powder foundation, ELF Custom compact with a contour, shimmer highlight, matte highlight, and blush shade, Nyx Eyebrow Cake powder, Anastasia Brow Wiz travel size, Kat Von D tattoo liner travel size, Tarte travel mascara, Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme lip gloss, The Balm Meet Matt(e) Nude lip color sample, a travel brush set, a tiny beauty blender, and mini tweezers.
Hair (Not pictured) – travel brush, mini hairspray, elastics, and bobby pins.
Yep, anything you may need to get your s**t together before work.
I leave this bag on my entry way table next to my purse and grab it if I’m running late in the morning or if I’m headed out on a last minute trip.
Do you have a grab and go bag? If so, what do you keep in there?
