Makeup kit for the Morning After

The Best Makeup Kit for the Morning After

I saw this article today and thought of you guys :)  Or maybe it’s because I’ve had such a busy week that it caught my attention more than it normally would!?  Among the great ironies of female life is that the days when you have the time and energy to apply expert makeup are the days you need it least!  You went to bed at a reasonable hour the night before and you wake up well-rested and calm. You performed all three steps of your skin regimen and have no blemishes …

So the days when you wake up late, exhausted, and panicked, are the days when you most desperately need makeup – right!  On those days, women face a second irony: foundation, powder, and concealer — the most urgent makeup, the kind you need most after a late night at a place where you don’t have a toothbrush – are hugely inconvenient.  They are messy (check out my article with tips on how to apply your makeup on the move) and they require a variety of applicators, and are rarely packaged together for on-the-go use!

Which brings me onto the reason for today’s post …” Enter “Laura Mercier’s Flawless Face Book Portable Complexion Palette, which is the size of one and a half iPhones.  The magnet closure snaps open to reveal a large mirror, five types of makeup, and two applicators.  Two dense, yellow-toned “secret camouflage” concealers work well for dark circles, while a goopier “secret concealer” hides blemishes. The tinted moisturizer is solid (in the upper left of the palette, above) and is portioned generously enough to use some extra as a sheer foundation. It’s silky to the touch and is applied easily with a finger.  Finally, a pressed powder in the upper right comes packed with a sponge applicator to dust and blend the look” NYMag.com

On my way into work or touch ups for a night out after a long day of filming, this paltte is exacly what I need for a quick fix.  It’s compact, spill-proof and has a mirror!!!!!  Your makeup bus rides will never be so simple :)
