I work at a tech company from Monday to Friday. Though I always have my makeup done at home every morning before going to the office, I still have my makeup bag with me. Now let me share what’s in my work makeup bag with you in this post!

I use a free Estée Lauder makeup bag. The blue color is pretty and I like its leather very much. Its size is also perfect for everything I need everyday. I have used this bag for more than a year, and it’s in my office tote bag every day.
我用的是 Estée Lauder 的贈品化妝包。我一項很喜歡藍色系的物品，加上這個包包的動物紋也相當吸引我，平常我會因為怕不好搭配而不常購入動物紋的單品，但是化妝包之類的小物我卻喜歡這樣特別的紋路設計，反正是放在大包包裡，就沒有任何搭配的問題囉。
I always have my foundation done at home every morning. The Double Wear Foundation I use stays whole day and I never have to worry about my look for working for 9 hours in the office. And this Double Wear Soft Glow Matte Cushion I bring with me adds on glow to my look. I also use this cushion to do a quick and simple retouch in the afternoon to freshen up myself.
Though I have my eye makeup done at home, I like to bring this earthy neutral palette with me in case I have any events after work. Normally I like the light smokey eye look for work which is natural and attractive. But when I have any dinner or events with friends after work, I will use this Milani Palette to emphasize my look after work before going to the event. The earthy neutral tones of this palette can be mixed with my daily look perfectly. I can simply create an exquisite eye look for a dinner or gathering with friends by this palette. Besides, the size of this palette is easy to carry in my makeup bag.
雖然總是畫好眼妝才出門，這盤 Milani Partner In Crime 我還是放在化妝包裡以備不時之需。我最喜歡也最常化的是微微的煙燻眼妝，喜歡顯色度高然後在眼線跟眼角處較為深邃的妝感，平時上班都是用大地色系眼影為主，有時帶點藕色，有時帶點金色，而這盤 Milani Partner In Crime 幾乎可以跟我所有的眼妝混搭。當我下班後有朋友聚餐，或是想要獨自去看場展覽，我會用Milani Partner In Crime 加深我已經有的眼妝，來製造一個更深邃精緻的妝感，加上這盤眼影小巧的尺寸，實在是化妝包的必備之物。
This brush is easy to use and carry. I bought this at Sephora two years ago, and it is still in use. Along with the Milani Palette mentioned above, this crease brush is another essential for my perfect eye look.
這是我兩年前在 Sephora 購入的自有品牌眼妝刷，至今還是相當實用。這只眼妝刷跟眼影盤 Milani Partner In Crime 是我在化妝包的眼妝好夥伴，可以大面積上色，也可以暈染，或是加深眼角，相當好用。
After introducing the eyeshadow palette and brush, having a retouch of the eyeliner is a must. I have two Mac Brushstroke Liners, one is at home and another in my makeup bag. The precision brush tip of this liner makes lining sharp and easy. I use this for a small cat eye for daily work, and emphasize them sometimes when I need a stronger look.
有了眼影盤跟眼妝刷，不可少的就是一支順手的眼線液筆。我總是準備兩支 MAC 24H超細緻眼線液 ，一支在家裡，一支在化妝包。我的常用色號是深棕色的 Brushbrown，我喜歡它極細又滑順的筆尖，可以完美畫出我最愛的上勾眼線，或是偶而我想要稍微強烈妝感的貓眼眼線，最重要的是，真的一整天都不會暈開。
Sometimes my brows, especially the end of my brows, will be erased due to my curly hair or any unknown reasons lol. So I always have this Maybelline eyebrow pencil with me. It is precise and sharp which is easy for me to have just a little retouch for my brows.
即使在家裡已經畫好眉毛，有時候眉尾就是會因為某些不知名原因而被抹掉，(或許是我的頭髮？)，但是眉毛一向是臉部的重要部分，所以我總是隨身攜帶這支極細的 Maybelline Brow Precise Micro Eyebrow Pencil ，有時候在洗手間若是發現眉毛有異，可以立刻補上。
This is my must-have Lip Duo. The Estée Lauder Lip Balm takes care of my lips gently with hydration and moisturization. I use this lip balm before going to sleep everyday, and before I apply my lipstick every morning. I also use it every time when I feel my lips are dry after sitting in the office for too long. This lip balm just comforts and heals my lips all the time.
The Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy 441 Rose Tea is my first nude lip color. I never liked any nude tone lip colors until I tried this one. This rosy nude color not just adds a natural elegant shade on my lips, but also balances my makeup perfectly.
這是我最常使用的護唇膏跟唇膏組合。Estée Lauder 粉嫩慾望潤色護唇膏 已經照顧我的嘴唇很多年，質地柔軟而且同時補水跟潤色，每天睡前跟平時白天補唇膏時我總會先擦上一層護唇膏來保護嘴唇。平常在辦公室只要想起，也經常補上護唇膏來避免在冷氣房容易嘴唇乾裂的問題。
I love Mac lipsticks because of their diverse color and texture choices. Brick-O-La is my most used shade which is wearable with my light smokey eye look which I have everyday for work. It is also one of my favorite lip colors for a no makeup makeup look. I just always have this lipstick with me.
Party Line is a berry color which is very feminine. It is bolder than Brick-O-La, but still wearable because its cremesheen texture creates a gentle and tender feeling. I use this color when I have an important meeting at work to make myself look more confident. I also apply this color for gatherings with friends after work.
每次經過MAC專櫃，我總是忍不住停下來試試最新的唇膏，畢竟這麼多色系的質地的選擇實在很迷人跟有趣。Brick-O-La 就是我在專櫃不經意試色時找到的豆沙色唇膏，不僅可以搭配我喜歡的煙燻眼妝，也是平常假日製造 no makeup makeup look 的必備唇色。
I bring this for making a quick ponytail or an easy half up hairstyle, and I usually use black to match my hair color. I bought these small things in drug stores which were cheap and of very good quality.
These are things in my work makeup bag! Do you have any essentials in your makeup for going to work? Or anything useful for recommendation? Share with me in the comment, I would love to know very much 🙂
