The Perfect Makeup For Your Handbag

The one thing there doesn’t seem to be enough of these days is time – but luckily, essence has still found a way to make sure you’re sorted, even when you’re on the run with 5 million different things to do on any given day. It’s not just about surviving your crazy life, it’s about rocking an #InstaReady look like a boss even when you’ve barely had time to brush your hair. Here’s what our #TeamFlawless recommends you keep in your handbag to pull off your girl-on-the-move vibe while still looking hot AF:

#InstaPerfect Foundation R99

It’s called foundation for a reason – it’s what grounds your make-up; what you build your whole look on. If your foundation is shaky, you’ll feel less confident as the day goes on. #TeamFlawless is all about the new #InstaPerfect Liquid Foundation, essence’s waterproof, buildable make-up for flawless coverage. Pop one of these in your handbag and you’ll be ready for anything.

I Love Extreme Volume Mascara R59

If you’re looking tired, or simply looking for a little wow-factor, I Love Extreme Volume Mascara is a must! For women who just won’t quit, it contains ultra-black pigments that intensively cover each individual lash with colour. The extra XL brush ensures over-the-top volume in overwhelming dimensions – minimal effort, maximum effect.

Bronze Brush R79

Last but not least, the one tool you need in your handbag is essence’s Bronze Brush – its soft, slanted bristles are ideal for shading or sculpting your face and cheeks (think cheekbones, which you can emphasize like a pro). Store it safely in its practical transparent pouch, and it’s ready for action at all times. Grab your favourite blush, contouring powder, or highlighter, and go get ‘em!
