A normal week for me includes stops to every part of the city and for a while now I’ve been on the hunt for products that can accommodate all the places and spaces that I find myself in. Recently, I’ve found myself carrying my newest favorites from Neutrogena in a travel bag for all those moments that I need to look my best on the fly. You have no idea how many times getting those last swipes of mascara on has made me miss my bus (which then leads to sprinting to the train so I won’t be late!), so something like this is hugely valuable, I really have no idea why I didn’t think of it before!
My beauty bag to-go was largely inspired by celebrity, Hayden Panettiere’s, On Set look (check it out below!). I really like the understated glamour of the look, and figured if it works for her Nashville character then it can certainly work for this ‘ol city girl! My favorite tip of her’s – and one that I’ve been doing for ages -is that to refresh your look, dab a little bit of your foundation underneath your eyes, right along your cheek. The Neutrogena Healthy Skin Foundation (the same that she uses) works great for me – it brightens up my face upon reapplication, provides great medium coverage, and hasn’t ever irritated my skin or felt heavy.
I’ve created a quick pic-tutorial for taking your eyes from everyday, to workday, to after-hours – and you can create all three eye-looks with Neutrogena’s Nourishing Eyeliner (seen in Twilight Blue 50), and Neutrogena’s Healthy Volume Waterproof Mascara (seen in Black/Brown 08)!
Basically, you want to start with something simple – but buildable. The first look is very light and easy for day-to-day wear. Just tightline your eyes, apply a light neutral eyeshadow, and lightly sweep on mascara. After that you’ll just want to add eyeliner to your top lash line and gradually intensify the look and take it from brunch with your sister, to the workplace, to a night out with friends.
To finish it all off, while I loved the Juicy Peach MoistureSmooth Color Stick, the color I’ve recently fallen head over heels for is Rich Raisin. It’s a little more serious, and dare I say, more romantic? The great thing about these color stick’s is that they’re super moisturizing and fit effortlessly in your work bag, school bag, clutch, or even your pocket. I love the chunky look of these and the formulation has made them a favorite.
Every day must end, and when my All Day Look has taken it’s final bow – via Neutrogena’s face wipes because I am plain obsessed with those, haha! – I like to give my hair some much needed TLC with Neutrogena’s Triple Repair Shampoo & Conditioner. I actually picked these up (along with all the Neutrogena favorites featured here) at Target. After coloring my hair, this is just what I need to strengthen my strands.
