Dina Carmen, Stylist.Com:

So what are the beauty essentials that you need to look perfect all day long? Well I'm Dina Carmen from and I'm going to tell you what to put together for the perfect makeup bag. OK, let's establish our main goal: Do not over-stuff. For the first makeup item, I like to start with a tinted lip gloss. I get a two-for-one: Color and moisture. Compressed powder in a compact can instantly smooth a complexion and freshen an 8-hour-old look. And of course the mirror is a must to check for makeup smudges.

Band-Aids. OK, they might not seem like a beauty essential but cute shoes can cause the not-so-cute blisters. The nail file -- really a must. Broken nails can easily cause a snagged hoe situation. Not pretty. Black eyeliner. Of course for a basic liner during the day, but you can get that smoky eye at night.

Fresh breath. No need for toothbrush. Mint strips are simple and compact. And blotting tissues are also an option for freshening up and blotting shine. A folding hair brush and elastic can help turn your office hair into a flirty night look. Here's one last tip, if you're going out after a work, throw a clutch in your day bag -- it'll be perfect for carrying just lip gloss and compact and you'll be ready to roll.

I liked the tip. With endless products in market, its difficult to decide. Thumps up for the tip

That was not at all what I was expecting. I was hoping for tips on how to pack your make up in a make up bag - not what to carry with you. This was a very basic " suggestion" on what to carry with you. For me, this was a flop!

I Agree with everyone. Very basic.

Very basic. It seems the more videos I watch, the more I find they are on absolute beginner level. Where are the videos for advanced users of makeup?

this is pretty much basic information that im sure most women already know.

This is a good basic list to keep your look refreshed as the day goes on.
