10 Things Every Beauty Girl Needs on Her Desk
Beauty girls, we totally feel you.
(SPOT.ph) Being a beauty girl can both be a blessing and a curse. For one, you don't have to worry about impromptu dinner dates or formal events because you have a stash of makeup to help you prepare but that also means having to lug around so many things all the time. To keep you from basically bringing a traincase everywhere, we round up the things a beauty girl needs on her desk.
Cosmetic Mirror (P329) from Cascade
Every beauty girl needs a mirror on her desk (because the front camera of your smartphone just won't cut it). Go for a double-sided mirror-slash-magnifier so you can always check if your brows are still on fleek and do last-minute touch ups in case of a spontaneous dinner date with your office crush!
Rechargeable Handy Fan (P299) from SM Department Store
In this heat, makeup is sure to melt and slide off your face. A tiny desk fan should be your new BFF because it will help keep your makeup in place and help you feel fresh and cool even in this weather!
Honey Lip Balm (P225) from Burt's Bees
Lip balm is a lipstick junkie's best friend. It plays a major role in helping you pull off that beautiful matte pout because it keeps your lips smooth and hydrated. No one likes a flaky matte pucker!
Agua del Sol (P2,750) from Escada
Smelling good steps up any beauty girl's game because not only do they make sure they look presentable, they smell good, too! This one has fruity top notes of refreshingly crisp nashi pear granita and icy raspberry sorbet, topped with zests of Italian citrus fruits and tinges of pink peppercorn.
Bloom Facial Blotting Tissue (P300) from Beauty Bar
There is a big difference between dewy skin and looking like you dipped your head in a deep fryer. Keep the unnecessary shine off your face by having a pack of blotting sheets on your desk at all times so you can look fresh all day long!
Eyelash Curler (P1,400) from Shu Uemura
Beauty girls always, always have an eyelash curler wherever they are. Having beautifully curled lashes (even sans mascara) really makes a big difference, especially when you're wearing very minimal makeup!
All-Natural Spray Sanitizer (P59.75) from Human Nature
It's important to keep your hands clean, so it's handy to keep a hand sanitizer—especially if you're on the computer a lot and tend to touch your face!
Vivid Matte Lipsticks (P299/each) from Maybelline
Never underestimate the power of a good lipstick. A swipe can turn any bad day around! Beauty girls always keep different shades so they can switch up their pout depending on the occasion (and mood!). We think it's important to have at least three colors: a nude-pink, a bold red, and a pretty plum.
Don't Get Mad Get Even Hydrating Powder Foundation (P1,399) from Happy Skin
There are going to be days when you just don't feel like using BB cream or liquid foundation but you still want a clear and even complexion. Powder foundations are essential, and this one has broad-spectrum SPF 20 so not only will it even out your skin, it will protect it from UVA and UVB rays, too!
Lash Sensational Waterproof (P429) from Maybelline
At times when beauty girls feel down in the dumps, a mascara wand can really lift their spirits. It's also handy to keep one at all times because you never know when you're going to suddenly need extra flirty, fluttery lashes!
