It’s officially back-to-school season — and even back to the office for newly hybrid employees. Since many of us have been working from home or taking remote classes, you may not have had a midday makeup refresh in a while. But, don’t worry, we have some recommendations for the perfect products to bring to freshen up your look.
These products are all portable and small enough to fit in a small pouch in your bag, and since you don’t want to bring your whole makeup bag with you, we have three must-haves that’ll get the job done.
Of course — carrying a powder in your makeup bag is an absolute must when you’re leaving the house. An oily T-zone is a makeup-wearer's worst nightmare (and most frequent visitor), so you want to make sure that you have something with you to combat it throughout the day.
This face powder comes in 34 shades to perfectly match your skin tone, and has a micro-fine powder formula to blot shine and add natural coverage without cakiness. When you’re ready to refresh your makeup look, use a powder brush to apply on the T-zone to mattify, or apply all over for fuller coverage.
If your eyebrow makeup tends to smudge or your brows lose shape throughout the day, this brow topcoat is the solution. This clear brow gel can extend the wear of your brow pencil for up to 30 hours, and can seal your brows in your desired shape all day. It’s also smudge-proof, transfer-resistant, and waterproof.
Shake well before applying, and then use the applicator brush to shape and seal your brow makeup.
When you’re bringing makeup with you to refresh your look, having multi-tasking products is key (you don't want to carry around every product you own). This lip and cheek tint is a great choice for reapplying throughout the day, as it’s easy to put on and small enough to carry in your purse or pocket.
Available in six bright shades, it gives you a subtle wash of color for a flushed look, allowing you to match your lip, cheeks and lids for a monochromatic moment. It’s also formulated with aloe and rose extract for added moisture, which is beneficial if your makeup tends to get dry throughout the day. To apply, blend into the skin and lips with your fingertips.
