My Beauty To Go Kit (Video)

The best thing about getting a To Go order (aka takeaway or take out) from a restaurant is you have everything you need, right there, all in one place. There's no preparation, no time lost, no searching around for ingredients, it's all there. The same idea applies to my Beauty To Go Kit: the essentials for quick makeup application. Keep it in your purse (or Johnny bag) or next to the sink for easy use. Enjoy.

Perfect For:
  • when you're tired (aka every day)
  • when you've overslept and have 5 min to get ready
  • college students
  • moms
  • running errands
  • those who want a minimal makeup routine
  • those who don't want beauty tools (just use clean fingers)
  • traveling or on-the-go
  • avoiding hearing, "OMG you look sick/tired/etc." ALL DAY
  • saving time (no rummaging around looking for products)
  • YOU
What's Inside:

BB or CC Cream
  • necessity for hiding dark circles--I suggest a peachy corrector.
    • Try Bare Minerals, Bobbi Brown, It Cosmetics
Cream Shadow
  • look more awake with a satin shadow slightly lighter than your skin tone
  • or try a brown or taupe for those days when you want to look like you put in more effort ;)
  • sometimes just curling the lashes works wonders, but I swear by a coat of mascara on top and bottom lashes
Cheek/Lip Tint
  • 2 products in one!
    • I love Stila's Convertible Color, but try Be a Bombshell's The One Stick, NARS Multiple, Benetint, Sonia Kashuk
Lip Crayon
  • okay, I admit, I will skip the blush if Im in a hurry, but I've gotta have some color on my lips.
  • these require no mirror, no sharpening, and no skill, plus they come in a variety of colors/finishes

  1. I ended up getting a Lip Crayon after I saw them on your blog, and I really like it! I actually got an NYC Crayon to try out first, and it's working really well!

  2. what a cute idea!! i think i am opposite, i would do blush over lipstick...but the fact of the matter is i should do both!

  3. I already keep some of these in my purse, but I will be adding a few more! Thanks for the ideas!

  4. This is a great idea! It's good to have a plan when you have to get ready with no time. I the whole "You look tired." thing when I don't wear makeup too. lol Great post! xoxo Lauren

  5. what a fun idea! this would make a great gift! xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  6. I always have concealer with me, but I love this idea :)

  7. I love your stunning new blog design, its very chic and pretty. This is an amazing post, you need to sell these and ship them too!

  8. This is such a cute idea! Blush is a must for me when I'm tired...a little color to the cheeks makes a big difference!

  13. Love this Elle! Every girl needs one of these filled with her favorite things.

  14. You're so cute! I love this idea- and it's super practical. A girl has to be prepared! :)


  15. Lovely idea for starter kit dear. Nice post dear :)
    Greetings from:- http://naturelbellefemme.blogspot.com/

  16. Brilliant idea and I love lip crayons. Kisses

  17. Awesome idea! This sounds like my kind of kit.

  18. Okay I totally need to put one of these together for myself to take to the hospital for when the baby is born! I've been stressing that I won't have enough time to pack up all my makeup once I go into labor, but since I need it daily I can't really pre-pack right now. Something like this might be the perfect solution for those newborn photo ops!

  19. Great beauty kit picks!


  20. I love this! I always just throw things haphazardly on and always hate the way I look! Thanks for this ma'am

  21. What a great kit--stocked with all the essentials! I have gotta try that Bobbi Brown concealer. The dark circles are an issue for me. :( T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

  22. Love how you described the kit like take out ha. That is so true. I always keep concealer, mascara, and lip balm in my bag but I should probably add some of these!

  23. I keep a little bag with just my essentials in it... really does make things a LOT easier, that's for sure!

  24. I love this idea. I so need to put one of these together.

  25. Great Idea Elle! I love this and it would be a great party favor you know what I mean!

  26. This is such a great idea! I recently just started keeping my every day makeup in my makeup bag so that it is easy to grab and go!

  27. I can't live without my Garnier BB Cream when travelling, Elle:) Will add the cheek/lip tint in my to-go stash for sure.

  28. I frequent your youtube channel so often now that I forget you have a lovely blog! I loved this video. I've recently been in an extreme experimenting phase so I doing have like my essentials done yet, but this is a huge start that I love!

  29. I just bought a Jordana lip crayon to try out! Love the ideas. I also love your cute shirt/necklace combo! I love combining bright colors/prints together : )

  30. This is such a great post! Being a college student it's hard on some days to really take the time to put makeup on, and this list is so helpful. Thank you!

  31. Amazing post!! <3

    keep in touch

  32. great finds for the beauty kit, there are always some essentials or items for a quick make-up routine

  33. Great video and recommended products for a fool-proof and timeless look! I think it would be so cool if they sold a pre-done kit IN a Chinese food container! I think that would be kind of adorable! :)

  34. I. love. this. Cute video, too! I need to buy all of those things and just use them daily, since I always get up too late and am in a rush to get to work. Thanks for the recommendation about the CC cream, too. I'm looking into the best one right now. :)

  35. Love the lip crayons, I am a huge gloss junkie so that is always on hand for me.
