Beauty Babble: Makeup On The Go

Beauty Babble

Hey Chicas!

I was feeling the need to Beauty Babble today as it’s been a while since we did one.

If you want to babble with me here’s how it works. To play the game you’ll basically be filling in a series of questions about what you’d do in certain situations where cosmetics would be needed.

Today’s babble is about makeup on the go!

Jump ahead to read my babblings and submit your own if you’re wanting to play!

Scenario 1

You’re running late for work, yet again, and have absolutely no time to do up your makeup. GASP! You soooo can’t make an appearance at work with absolutely no makeup on your face plus you don’t want the new guy from accounting to see you without your face on. What to do? How can you get your makeup done in a hurry on the way to work.

The Muse is all about the new Philosophy Supernatural Coloring Book. It’s easy for dabbing on makeup on the fly plus the look is completely work friendly. It’s so easy you can do it on the way to work. I’d also tuck my Philosophy Finger Paints Corrector Palette in my bag as I love this for quickie touch ups and covering up my dark circles and such. Perfect for on the go makeup.

What’s your favorite quick items for a super quick makeup application?

Scenario 2

Your boyfriend comes over unexpectedly waving around two tickets to Hawaii that he won at the local grocery store. The problem is the flight leaves in 90 minutes and you only have time to pack a few essentials before heading to the airport. What five items do you take with you?

I’d have to snag my Bobbi Brown Concealer Palette, Shills BB Cream, Shu Curler, some cheek stain, and my Urban Decay Book of Shadows, and a black eyeliner.

Scenario 3

You’re getting ready for work one sunny morning and create a gorgeous yet simple look using some of the newest MAC Collection. You head outside and decide it’s a perfect day to walk to work (yeah right that would be my ideal world, where I can walk to work ha). Half way there the sky darkens and a sudden freak burst of rain starts pouring down. Your awesome makeup look gets utterly and completely ruined. You can’t go into your office looking like this. You head to the nearest washroom when you get to work and start digging in your purse trying to find items to repair your face.

What’s inside your purse that can repair the damage?

Well…I’d so freaked up if this happened. I don’t carry a whole lot of makeup with me but lucky enough I do have the following bits and bobs hanging out to help me. First off I’d get it all off as best I can. I normally have wipes of some sort hanging out in my bag so I’d use them to get most of the makeup off. I carry my Raycious Powder everywhere so I’d apply that as my foundation. I also have lip and cheek stain at all times so I’d use that on my cheeks and lips. A little gloss and finally I almost always tote around a Cargo Eyelighter so I’d dab that on my eyes.

Well that wrapped up this session of Beauty Babble.

Feel free to babble your makeup on the go solutions, looking forward to hearing them!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    • the Muse

  • MC

    Black mascara, Urban Decay 24/7 Zero black eyeliner, Benefit Posie Tint, Jill Stuart Red Fox Lip Gloss, Urban Decay Deluxe Shadow in ransom, and Urban Decay 24/7 Concealer is my emergency arsenal for anything XD.

  • Kaoru

    Scenario 1)
    MAC Studio Fix foundation, NARS Multiple in Orgasm for my cheeks, NARS eyeshadow Abyssinia, and L’Oreal Double Extend Mascara in Black.

    Scenario 2)
    Skin79 VIP Gold BB Cream, Silky White Magic Face Powder (to set), Tarte Cheekstain in Blushing Bride, Giorgio Armani LipWax #4 (Raspberry), Urban Decay Sustainable eyeshadow palette
    ^I can buy mascara while I’m where, hehe

    Scenario 3)
    I would use bathroom soup and papertowels to wash my face (bad Kaoru, I know), then I would use my MAC blotting powder as a base, Bath and Body Works stain for my lips and cheeks, CoverGirl AmazeMint over that on lips, and Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Double Face Perfector as concealer/highlighter (and use the highlighter for a makeshift eyeshadow).

    This was fun! Made me relook at sites I hadn’t been to in a while to get the right names ^_^.
