How to keep your makeup looking fresh from morning to night.

Whether you're going straight from work to dinner or a date, rushing to an unexpected business meeting, or just running all day, makeup touch-ups are a necessity. Because you don't want to lug around a bulky bag, streamline your makeup kit to have everything you need, but nothing more. For perfect touch-ups, apply makeup just where you need it and use a light touch. Try these tips to look your best from morning to night.
