No, just a lipgloss.

I do carry a large makeup bag with me just in case although I very rarely need to use anything in it.  I also carry anything I might need in an emergency but I don't take my purse/tote with me - just leave it in the car.  I only take my wallet everywhere.  I don't like being unprepared.  When I worked, I was the go to person when anyone needed anything.

I suspect this is the case for most women who carry a lot of makeup products with them. Better to be prepared for anything kind of thing. I don't see anything wrong with it myself.

I think most makeup nowadays is built to last, not like it was years and years ago when you might have felt you needed touchups through out the day.  Remember in old movies, women were forever powdering their noses.  Smiley Very Happy

Nope - just lip balm (clear and tinted).

Used to also carry blush, but the lippie does double-duty if necessary.

I carry a small makeup bag in the passenger seat.  It has my lipstick which I put on at the red light.

 I have three colors that match the clothes I wear.  Whatever I put on goes in the side pocket of my bag for after lunch.

Re: Do you carry a makeup bag in your purse

@ccassaday...Funny you ask this! I am a former make-up bag carrier and I finally forced myself to buy a smaller handbag so that my make-up bag wouldn't fit in it. I never used anything from my make-up bag throughout the day anyway but my powder and lipstick. I now only carry pressed powder, lipstick $ lipgloss. I've never looked back!

My purse is not a suitcase; I keep it simple.

Re: Do you carry a makeup bag in your purse

No, I carry tiny bags, so there's no room...I do have a lip balm, it comes in a flat packet, so it doesn't add any bulk.

Take time every day to enjoy where you are without a need to fix it
