    5 Makeup Bag Must-Haves

    Whether you're a glam guru or a keep-it-low-key beauty, the following are five essential tools every woman needs in her makeup bag:

    1. Tweezers: If you want to pull off the polished look all the time, you're going to need some tweezers.  Nothing says, "Screw your beauty expectations," more than unruly eyebrows.Tweezers are also useful for things like pulling out splinters, putting on false lashes and getting stuff out of your nails - gross, but true.

    2. Translucent Finishing Powder: for setting foundation or eliminating extra shine at the end of a long day. Our fave ... Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder. This industry-recognized luxe finishing powder sets the foundation and slightly mattifies skin without changing its natural contours. Made of 100 percent-mineral silica, it softens the appearance of imperfections, fine lines, and pores and completely evens out the complexion for a glowing, radiant look. This translucent, dermatologist-tested, and talc-free formula does not dry the skin. One universal shade works for all skintones. The lightweight, silky texture and ultrafine formula adds a soft focus effect for a flawless finish and can be applied over foundation or worn alone.
    3. Glass Nail File: Since a typical manicure only lasts about two days, it's a good idea to keep a nail file on had for any chips or other manicure mishaps.  We love our glass file for its chip and break-preventing qualities.According to Allure.com, Glass files, regardless of how they are used, seal the keratin layers together at the edge of the nail, preventing peeling and chipping. Traditional files should be used by filing in one direction only, but they rarely are, and filing in both directions causes the layers of keratin to shred, leaving the edge thinner and more prone to peeling and chipping. Another bonus is that glass files can be sanitized and sterilized. And they’re great for professional use—given the number of jobs we do, there is less waste

    4/5. Swoon: OK, so a little self-promotion can't hurt ... The "Lip Gloss Pick Up Artist" will save your sanity when down to the last drops of gloss, concealer or any of your other favorite liquid beauty products that come in tiny tubes. And the fifth tool, the cap for Swoon ;-) makes taking your swoon on-the-go easy, breezy!
