As much as I love beauty products, I'll be the first to admit that I definitely have my days when I storm out of the house without a hint of makeup. But for the days when I'm not just sitting behind my desk (probably attending beauty and fashion events), it's not exactly a good look. So to quickly pull myself together, I always make sure to have my makeup bag on hand with a couple of makeup must-haves to help me instantly transform my look from tired-looking to effortlessly pretty.

Believe me, a few of these awesome products in your purse will definitely make your life a whole lot easier. Check out my 10 makeup bag essentials. And trust me, these items will NOT take up a lot of space in your bag!

Makeup primer

As pressed for time as you might be, you should never leave the house without putting on some moisturizer, eye cream and of course SPF. But even so, with the colder weather amongst us, my skin tends to get a little dry by the time I make it to the office. So to ensure a perfect makeup application, I apply a smoothing makeup primer, like Sephora Collection Perfecting Ultra-Smoothing Primer ($15) to my skin first. This amazing formula evens out my complexion, hides imperfections, and keeps my makeup fresh for hours.
