Inspired by the ‘Glamour On The Go’ exhibition I thought I would share the contents of my bag and makeup bag when I’m out for the day covering a story. No one should cart around such an exhaustive makeup kit worthy of a massive Zuca makeup bag (unless of course you’re an actual makeup artist, in which case go right ahead!) so I’ve pared down the contents to the absolute essentials. Some days I’ll be carting around what feels like half of Boots in my bag and then I’ll do a clear out, always keeping the same, carefully curated goods each time.
Camera, phone, pen, little notebook Reporting/blogging essentials.
A good book Obviously you’ll need the company when you’re on the station platform waiting for a train for 40 minutes #southwesttrains
