"Problem Solved" Emergency Kit

Need a band-aid for your brain? In the middle of the holidays, stress levels can rise, but one thing that you can do to make your life is easier is create an emergency beauty kit with solutions for any problem that might arise.

For maximum impact, your kit should include:
  • Your favorite lipstick
  • Mineral foundation
  • Foundation brush or cotton balls
  • Concealer
  • Mascara
  • Moisturizer
  • Tweezers
  • Small hair brush
  • Nail polish remover pads
  • Lint roller
  • Anti-frizz hair product
  • Spot Cream
  • Commodynes makeup remover towels
  • Tissue packet
  • Luna bar
Once you have all 15 items assembled, place them in an extra-large cosmetics bag. Voila! You can use everything in this kit inside your home, and then toss the bag inside your purse when you're on the run.

Why is the list so long, you ask? Because you won't regret it.

Lint roller will save you from stray cats and your gal pal's mohair sweater.

If you notice you have a breakout a day or two before a party, apply a spot cream to the problem area at night before you go to sleep. We like First Aid Beauty Fab Blemish Eraser, which uses benzoyl peroxide and witch hazel to dry out spots.

If your mascara slips, any moisturizer and a bit of tissue will fix it.

Hats messin' with your hairdo? Frederic Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Cream smooths hair while adding tons of shine.

And sometimes people invite you to parties with microscopic hors d'oeuvres. Frustrating, right? Nosh on your Luna bar when no one is looking.
