5 Products For Touching Up Your Makeup


In no way am I or would I ever consider myself a fashion blogger. I say this because I feel I lack the certain style and creativity that fashionable girls have. I am more of a buy the outfit off the mannequin girl. That being said one of my goals for 2016 is to put myself out there a bit more. I thought it would be fun to do the occasional lifestyle story (with a beauty twist of course), along with focusing on doing more beauty tutorials. So here goes, after meeting my girlfriends Sarah {Earrings + Stuff} and Britney {Britney Gill Photography} for a coffee at Milano we headed to a great little spot in Gastown to snap a few shots. Then below check out my tips + products to use for touching up your makeup when you are on the run.

My Touch Up Go-To's

  1. Blotting Paper. Use these before touching up your makeup to absorb oil. Sometimes this is all I need to help freshen up my skin.
  2. Hydrating Face Mist. When I need a bit of a refresher I spritz myself with a face mist. It helps to give my skin a boost of hydration and feels amazing. These are generally not a setting spray but instead a product to help refresh the skin so don't get the two mixed up.
  3. Q-Tips + Concealer. Nothing helps you look more awake then bright eyes. I will clean up any smudges that might have happened with a q-tip then dab on a little extra concealer under my eyes. Also, we have all had the dreaded moment when that zit you thought you were getting makes an afternoon appearance. Conceal then dust a little powder to set and you will be good to go!
  4. Powder. I always have a pressed powder with me to touch up around my nose and chin. These are the two areas I find need a little extra love half way through my day. Currently I am obsessed with Giorgio Armani's Luminous Silk Powder. It is a light weight powder so when re-applying it doesn't look heavy.
  5. Lipstick. I always have a few different lip products in my purse. Three in my bag right now are Rosebud Minted Lip Balm, MAC Lipstick "Faux" + Charlotte Tilbury's Lip Lustre "Portobello Girl".

Do you have any products that you can't leave home without?
