Packing what you’ll tote around with you all day is about choice and purpose. It’s about knowing the difference between what you want and what you need. asked women of all ages and lifestyles “What’s In Your Makeup Bag” - their daily beauty essentials that they can’t live without and why.

This month we ask Maggie Ma, a Beauty Consultant from Hudson's Bay Company.


TATCHA Luminous Dewy Skin Mist
This skin mist actually leaves a true dewy finish unlike other mists that can make you look oily. It's especially amazing for my dry skin and it leaves my skin feeling super hydrated throughout the day.


BECCA Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector® Pressed - Champagne Pop
At first I picked this up because I love Jaclyn Hill, but when I tried it on, I was even more in love with this highlighter! The colour is so universal and so flattering, I reach for it whenever I get the chance to!


DIOR Diorshow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum Base Mascara Lash Primer
This primer doesn't leave my lashes chunky when I go in and apply regular mascara. But what makes it even more amazing is that it also holds the curl of my lashes all day! No more pin-straight lashes!


MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NW20
Not only does it conceal my under eyes without looking cakey, it also helps to brighten my eyes. This is my secret weapon to looking fresh and well-rested even if I only caught a couple of hours of sleep the night before.


URBAN DECAY Eyeshadows in Virgin and Naked
Virgin is my go-to underbrow highlight. It just looks beautiful and it compliments any colour! Naked is my favourite transition shade because it blends so well with every look I create.


NIVEA FOR MEN Aftershave Balm for Sensitive Skin
I was surprised to learn that this can act as a primer for makeup. I can't praise it enough for making my background makeup last all day without dying out my skin. I also find my skin starting to clear up after using it! Everyone should definitely give it a try.


TOO FACED Born This Way Foundation in Warm Nude
I was so excited for this foundation to come out and I love it to death! It perfectly blurs imperfections and gives a beautiful airbrushed look. The best thing? My skin looks - just like its name - born this way.
