4 Essentials for Your Makeup Bag

Expert Tina Turnbow’s four must-have touch-up tools:

1. Blotting papers: M.A.C. blot films get high marks because “they won’t disturb makeup.” ($13.50; maccosmetics.com)

2. Undereye Concealer: Maybelline’s Instant Age Rewind Double Face Perfector does double duty. “One end has a sponge-tip concealer,” says Turnbow, “and the other illuminates skin.” ($7.49; drugstore.com)

3. Double-duty blush: If your cheek color tends to wear off, pick a stick that functions as lip gloss as well. Turnbow loves Tipsy Cheek Stain by Tarte. ($30; sephora.com)

4. Blendable eye pencil: To amp up your eyes at night, add eyeliner or create a smoky eye An Almay Blendable Eye Pencil in navy, black, or brown is all you need. ($7.49 at drugstores)
