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 Sally Le, Beauty Expert at Shoppers Drug Mart.

SMASHBOX Photo Finish Foundation Primer
This primer feels amazing, and is perfect for my dry skin. It's lightweight but still creates a smooth canvas on my face for my foundation to be applied flawlessly. It also keeps my foundation from slipping and sliding throughout the day.

LISE WATIER Teint Lumiere (Shade #4)
I love that this foundation feels very light weight on the face, but it still very moisturizing - again something I look for in my products because my skin tends to get even drier in the winter months. It also has SPF so I can get away with skipping the sunscreen when I'm in a hurry!

ROC ENYDRIAL Repairing Lip Care
Hands down the best lip balm I've used - even on days that my lips are extra dry, they stay moisturized for a long time after I apply the lip balm. I never the house without it!

STILA Stay All Day Waterproof Eye Liner (Black)
This waterproof liner is quite essential for me, especially when I work long days and don't have much time to go touch up my face. It doesn't budge or smudge and I love that the liner itself doesn't dry out after it's opened.

BIODERMA Sensibio H2O Make-Up Removing Wipes
I almost want to call this a miracle product because it's gentle and water-based, but it can still take off waterproof makeup without any tug. It's convenience makes it perfect for before the gym or at the end of the night when I'm feeling lazy.

At first I thought the Hook'n'Roll brush was just a gimmick, but when I tried the mascara, the brush really does grab and coat each lash evenly! Love that it keeps the lashes curled and lifted all day too.

Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm (Curviest Caramel)
This is a staple product for me. The perfect nude colour to wear on its own, but this Chubby Stick is also the perfect companion to any darker coloured lip liner for creating that popular ombre effect.
