1. Translucent Powder – to control oil and shine, apply a small amount in a patting motion on the t-zone area (nose, forehead & chin).

2. Blotting Sheets – Use before powdering to absorb excess oils your pores have released and to eliminate shine. An environmentally friendly option: Beauty Blender Blotterazzi; it’s a reusable blotting sponge that absorbs oil and is washable.

3. Q-tips or Almay Q-tips – for touchups in case your eyeliner, lipstick or mascara smudges, you can use regular Q-tips or Q-tips filled with makeup remover. Use a dry, clean Q-tip to blend out concealer and foundation creasing around the eyes, nose, and mouth.
Erica’s favorite: Regular: Q-tips Precision Tips
Filled with Makeup Remover: Almay Makeup Eraser Sticks
4. Lip Color – You will want to keep your lip color with you so you can touch up after eating and/or drinking.
Bonus: Hydrating spray to refresh and rehydrate skin and makeup after touching up. This will help to eliminate the powdery look you can get from touching up with powder.
