Lately I’ve felt like I barely have enough time travelling between two jobs and to my boyfriend’s house that I’ve had to devise a way to do it quickly and efficiently. Now that fall has officially hit us in Toronto I have brought out the trench coat for good and use that as my overall outwear until it gets any colder. It is both dressy and casual and can be easily changed depending on the occasion.
When it comes to make up, I’m not the biggest user up until recently so I keep things very sparse and easy enough for morning application. I’m not a fan of liquid foundations so I stick to my Mac Mineralize Skin Finish pressed powder to smooth out any imperfections. I just discovered Nars Blush in ‘Deep Throat’ and can’t get enough when wanting to add a bit of colour in the early morning hours before work. It works perfectly with my skin tone without being overpowering. The last important thing I keep handy when I’m rushing out the door is mascara that can be applied easily without a curling wand. It makes a world of difference even if that’s all you’re wearing. Currently I’m reaching for Too Faced ‘Better Than Sex’ mascara and I haven’t been disappointed yet.
Then there is the most important thing in my opinion and that is a nice, effortless purse that can hold everything you need it to. My one designer bag at the moment is a structured Ralph Lauren purse I bought in the spring and has been useful for me ever since. It has a multitude of pockets for keeping my book, planner, wallet etc. I can even fit an entire makeup bag in there if I’m strategic about the placing. I’ve always felt that no matter how you’re dressed, if you have a great bag you will always feel on point.
What do you take on the go?
