Publicada Martes Agosto 26, 2014 10:03 AM GMT

Most women have a heaping arsenal of cosmetics, overflowing with eyeliners, lipsticks and powders galore!

While having a plethora of cosmetics at your disposal is fantastic, it’s important to make sure that you have the necessities at hand as well. You may be thinking, “What are the necessities?” Well, we’re glad you asked.

We consider the necessities of a makeup bag the things you would apply if you had less than 5 minutes to get ready. These items are normally thrown in purses to aid in beauty touchups throughout the day and come in handy when in a glam pinch. Once applied, these five items will achieve a quick, yet gorgeous look for any girl who is constantly on the go. So, as you read through these items, take a mental check of the things that you do and don’t have. If you’re missing any one of these items, make sure you stock your makeup bag with one or more of them today!

Tinted Moisturizer with SPF:
Forget applying a concealer and foundation! Skip both of those steps on your busiest mornings and simply apply a tinted moisturizer. This product is so fabulous because it not only serves as a wonderful, lightweight moisturizer, but also lends a hint of color to your face to help even out skin tone and add to your natural, gorgeous glow. Make sure to get one with an SPF of 15 or higher to help protect your skin from the sun throughout the day. A couple of our favorite tinted moisturizers are Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20, $42 and The Supernatural Poreless, Flawless Tinted SPF 15 from philosophy, $30.

Transparent touch-up powder:
Tired of battling that stubborn, shiny T-zone throughout the day? So are we - which is why a transparent powder is another one of our must-haves for our makeup arsenal. A good powder allows you to refresh your makeup any time of day with just a few pats. Apply a little powder on your T-zone and on the tip of your nose to achieve a refreshed, shine-free look. Some of our favorite translucent powders are MAC Blot Powder Pressed, $23 and Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Pressed Powder, $34.

Rollerball Perfume:
We combat a lot of elements throughout the day. For some of us it’s the smell of the subway and the streets from our daily commute to work. For others of us, it’s the smell of the office itself that we’d like to ward off. So, instead of throwing your big, and rather breakable perfume bottle in your purse, pack a little perfume rollerball instead. These perfume applicators are small, compact and are perfect for sprucing up your scent throughout the day. Sephora has scents from Givenchy, Chloe and Marc Jacobs available.

Eye Lash Curler:
An eyelash curler is a staple, or should be a staple, of every woman’s makeup bag. This product can literally transform the look of your lashes, with or without mascara in 30 seconds or less. Curl your lashes every morning before applying mascara. Then, to open your eyes throughout the day, curl your lashes around lunchtime to awaken your eyes and elongate those lovely lashes of yours! For long, au-natural looking lashes try the Full Lash Curler from MAC, $16!

Quality Red Lipstick:
A ravishing red lipstick is one cosmetic item that every woman needs to carry in her makeup bag and then also in her purse throughout the day. Your entire look can be perked up by just one shade of red lipstick! So, if you’re starting to feel a little drab come mid-afternoon, apply some color to your kisser for a little beauty-pick-me-up! A couple of our favorite red lipsticks are CoverGirl LipPerfection in ‘Hot’, $7 and Mac Lipstick in ‘Ruby Woo’, $14.
