my 'out and about' makeup bag

When I go out places, i occasionally take a few items of makeup with me, most of the time it will be the current lip colour i am wearing that i'll need to touch up while i'm out (especially when i'm eating at a restaurant for lunch or dinner). But on days where my skin is a lot more oily i'll take a powder with me and some concealer if my skin is not in it's best condition. 

So here are the items i will take with me at an extreme, most of the time i'll just take my lipstick or liptint with me, today i was wearing my No7 lipstick. If i take a blush with me I like to take a cream blush as it's easy to apply and doesn't require a brush, also you can use it as a lip colour too so you could decrease the size of makeup to take down to that one item. 
1. Collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer in 'fair'
2. Revlon Photoready cream blush in 'pinched'
3. No7 moisture lipstick in 'pink crush'
4. Elf mineral foundation powder in 'fair'
5. No7 grey eyeliner 
With a lipstick i like to take a lipstick that isn't drying and is easy to apply, the no7 moisture lipsticks are great for this as you don't need much in the way of a mirror to apply it. I would also suggest a Revlon lip butter which would be a good dupe for the moisture lipsticks with the easy application.

No7 lipstick that is near the end ahh!

My vintage compact mirror which i use to reapply my lipstick and check my makeup throughout the day.

Quick OOTD, Zara jumper, floral shirt, chain necklace and jeans.
I also had to wear my glasses today as my contact lenses were not cooperating at all and making my eyes hurt.
