The Desk to Drinks Essentials

Now that I have graduated and have a full time job, I do find there are occasions when I go straight from work to a something more social - most likely some drinks! So I have found it is always handy to have a few essentials on stand by for these events, which come in particularly useful when they come unplanned. So, what is there?
Charles Worthington's Volume and Bounce Texturising Spray - this is a must for me. Throughout the day. my hair seems to get more and more lifeless. So this little gem is perfect for putting some zest into my hair in a flash.
Benefit's Dallas Box O Powder - this is definitely one of my all-time favourites blushers. Perfect for a healthy, bronzed pop on the cheeks. This is perfect for both day and night in my opinion!
Maybelline's Dream Touch Lumi Concealer - an instant pick-me-up for under the eyes. I can't be the only one who can look a little worse for wear after a long day's work right? (right?!) Well a little dab of this under my eyes instantly makes me look more awake for it's brightening properties.
MAC's Studio Fix Powder (in NC42) - this works in two ways for me. I either sweep this over my face to take away any shine that has accumulated throughout the day. Or if my base has worn off by the time work is over, I can use the sponge and pat the powder over my skin for more coverage.
Rimmel's Apocalips (in Across the Universe) - a red lip, need I say more? This shade is a deep red, although any red will probably do (the apocalips shade 'Big Bang' looks pretty awesome!). A swipe of this over my lips can transform any look. Essentially, a bold lip can make you look like you've put more effort into your appearance than you actually would have by doing this one step. Why apocalips? Well you may know I have a real love for liquid lipsticks, they are long wearing and saturated with colour and are super easy to use!
Benefit's Gimme Brow - although I am quite lucky that my brow make up doesn't tend to move or wear off that much throughout the day, the little product is great for a top up. It places a little more definition through my brows, and more importantly for me, it grooms them to perfection as well!

  2. I agree that a bold lip is a 'desk to drink' essential! I also pack some liquid eyeliner because I think putting some winged liner makes it look like you made more effort than you did :)
