This is unlikely to be the contents of the average commuters makeup bag. Too much? Too little? You tell me. Before I start though, I'd just like to give a big err "womanly" high-five to all of those ladies out there who manage to juggle the circus act of applying their makeup on a moving train. Not only is it a task I couldn't bare to do in public, it also requires a steady hand to apply eyeliner and mascara alike whilst speeding through a tunnel!
My original makeup bag is a lot more roomy but it's currently "out of office" and into the washing machine. Hand cream and a scent are absolute musts for me. The Yes! Nurse hand creams are by far the best I've tried. They're not overly thick in consistency but keep you hands soft and hydrated even after you wash them. It was designed for nurses, after all. Le soft Perfumes have become my new little obsession. Zazou is a gorgeous floral-ish scent that balances between feminine and heady spice very well. These aren't greasy on the skin and are so easy to apply.
Touch ups are my biggest concern. NARS Concealer for under the eyes (rarely used throughout the day), Maybelline Fit Me for covering blemishes - I can't leave home without this one. That tiny bottle is full of Lancome Miracle Teint. It was my sample that I decant into every now and again. It's good to have some extra foundation to hand, especially if I hadn't actually put any on to begin with. Rimmel's Stay Matte Primer is pretty decent over makeup to remove excess shine and add a little hydration.
Weleda Skin Food and a lone DHC Olive Oil Swab are there just for "emergencies". Extras include the Eye of Horus eye liner which I keep just in case I'm going out after work and want to look less bug eyed. Colour in a balmy stick is my favourite choice (Rimmel or Revlon). I usually layer these on and convince myself I've created a new shade that suits me. REN Vita Mineral Lip Balm is my favourite to add a glossy finish or if I'm not in the mood for lip colour at all.
