I have seen large and small purses that keep similar cosmetic essentials inside. Makeup is essential for last minute touch ups or even for a week on the road. Here are three essentials every woman should have in their makeup bag from our beauty experts.

Melissa's Advice

"My three essentials are a strong concealer, a great lip balm, and I always keep on hand a bold, black mascara."

Shay's Advice

"The most essential product for every makeup bag is anything mineral! Mineral makeup is worth the investment and my personal favorite line is Glo Minerals.  The foundations and powders have a physical SPF, which gives you instant protection when you dust it on. The Glo Mineral line is triple milled, free of parabens, dyes, and talc and has a plethora of colors that complement any skin tone. I recommend it to patients after surgery as the makeup will not harm delicate surgical incisions. Once you have good makeup products, the other important item to invest in is the right makeup brushes.  Fortunately, many places have brush kits that people can purchase that have proper tools to apply your makeup.  Often times the little sponges and brushes that come with the makeup are not the best tools for proper application. One final makeup essential is individual false eyelashes. Eyelashes are a great way to instantly open the eye, for a more dramatic look. Individual lashes are inexpensive, easy to use, and require minimal commitment. They are great for everyone!"
