How to Minimize Your Makeup Kit: Literally and Figuratively

As much as we’d like to give our kikay kits the ‘Mary Poppins’ effect, we’ve got to work with what we’ve got. Here’s the tea: not only does minimizing the amount of stuff in your kit keep you more organized, it makes going through it for retouches quicker, too. Plus, no more aching shoulders from a heavy purse! With a little strategy, and the cutest, pint-sized products from Chihuahua Cosmetics, keeping your kit roomy and clutter-free is a piece of cake.

Compact Coverage

Instead of trying to cram in primers and foundations to take care of your face base, slip the Chihuahua Cosmetics Powder in there instead. Don’t let its lightweight feel fool you because it packs serious coverage, so you can confidently leave your concealer and other correctors behind. With ample sun protection added, you don’t need to tote around any bulky sunscreen containers either. But wait, can just one powder really take care of any skin type? You’d better believe it. For oily gals, it leaves behind a soft, matte finish. Got drier and dull skin? A generous amount of its Vitamin E helps nourish and moisturize skin at the same time.

Long-Lasting Lips

If you’ve got parched-looking lips like I do, prepping them with lip balm and remembering to bring it along to boot is a must. But with the Chihuahua Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick, you’ll only need one lip product to last you the entire day. Super pigmented, a few swipes will get you that much-needed pop of color that seriously stays on. Go for “Charm” or “Ginger” if you want sweet and subtle shades for day, or “Marilyn” and “Kylie” for a little evening excitement. Thanks to its Vitamin E and Aloe Vera infusion, lips stay soft and moisturized for hours, too.

Color Coordinate

Monochrome makeup is still going strong and flatters just about anyone. Forget fretting about your makeup matches every morning and stick with the Chihuahua Cosmetics Blush for monochrome made easy. Swipe lightly and blend away on cheeks for a soft flush of color to perk up your complexion. Then dab and blend onto eyes for a pretty and seamless #FOTD. Reach for “Sunset” or “Apple Crisp” for lowkey looks at the office, or “Dusty Pink” for bolder vibes. Its satiny formula stays put for hours and Vitamin E keeps your precious skin nicely nourished.

Done and Defined

Make defining your eyes easy with the ultra black and pigmented formula of the Chihuahua Cosmetics Eyeliner. Running out of space for eyeshadow in your kit? Chill. Just run the pencil along and above your lash line, then smudge and blend upwards and outwards, with a brush or your fingers, for a quick, smokey eye. Run the pencil one more time along both your water line and lash line, and extend outwards into a classic wing. Oh, and the lanolin oils in this baby will help keep the thin and sensitive skin of your eyelids moisturized, too.
