The products I absolutely can't do without are my Clinique Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen. It is 100% precise and works for someone with butter fingers like mine. I also swear by Chambor's Extreme Matte lipcolour in 02 Honey Rose. This handy little lip pencil is a great lift-me-up for day time and when you swipe a dash of gloss over it at night, it can completely transform your look. Apart from these, I add colour to my cheeks with The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Stain, a multi-purpose product for your lips and cheeks. I don't leave home without my these three musketeers!

Being such a beauty junkie, I naturally can’t leave home without a few essentials. Maybelline Baby Lips is a must for me to keep my lips moisturized and to add a dash of colour to them. Also, I can’t live without my Sephora Smart Liner, which is the easiest thing to line my lids or even draw pretty flicks, in case of any last-minute plans. A bright lipstick also makes me feel better - right now I’m loving MAC’s new Retro Matte Lipsticks. I also carry a Bath & Body Works hand sanitizer with me ALL the time because I’m quite a germophobe!

I picked up the Victoria’s Secret Bombshell Body Mist when I went to New York City to meet my sister a few years ago. I love it so much that I pick up a travel-size bottle every time I visit the place or get it picked up if someone is visiting me from there. The same goes for the Rosy lips Vaseline. I don’t ever leave the house without a lip balm and this one is my favorite. I also have a spare kajal from Lakme that I always carry in my bag.
Sharon Alphonso - Lifestyle & Beauty Writer
No kajal highlights my eyes better than the Lakme Eyeconic Kajal. It’s long-lasting and is very smooth and easy to apply. For my lips, I love using matte lipsticks. I absolutely adore the Lakme Absolute Tint Matte Pink Fantasy, as the shades complement my skin tone and make my lips stand out. And finally for my skin - I love using the Maybelline Dream Satin Two Way Cake Compact. You can use it as a compact and foundation at the same time! Apart from my wallet and ipod, you will find these three fab beauty products in my bag every time!

The products that I can’t leave home without are - Maybelline’s Baby Lips, The Colossal Kajal, and my Versace Eros perfume! The Baby Lips is my lifeline these days because of how dry my lips get throughout the day. The Colossal Kajal is absolutely necessary if I need to do a 180 on how I’m looking, in 20 seconds max! Yes, just kajal makes a huge difference, and it certainly helps me look not-dead. Also, when I know I might need to go out with friends, I keep my MAC Matchmaster foundation in my handbag, as well. A minute with it and I look (and feel!) ready for anything! :)

I recently discovered this miracle product named ‘Pure Rose Water’ and I couldn't be happier. It acts as the perfect hydratant and is a perfect dupe for the MAC Hydrating Mist. I use it before and after my makeup, and basically carry it everywhere I go. My skin hasn't felt better. It takes me from looking tired and lacklustre to bright and dewy in seconds, and the best part is that it barely costs a dime.

I’m not a huge fan of makeup, but there are certain products that are ALWAYS there in my bag! Like the Inglot Matte Lipstick (Shade 425). It is my ideal my-lips-but-better colour, and instantly brightens my face! Also, I love highlighting are my eyes. Lakme Eyeconic Kajal gives a nice, dark line and doesn’t smudge for hours. On days when my skin is particularly dull, the Maybelline Clear Glow Compact comes to the rescue! It feels light and has good coverage. These are my go-to products on any given day!
Ragini Kapoor - Account Manager
Benefit They're Real Mascara is one of the most important makeup products for me. I use it when I'm too lazy to do my makeup. It instantly lengthens, curls, and volumizes my eye lashes. I’m absolutely in love with it that’s why I feel better, knowing that it’s in my purse. <3

My bag is like my best friend and is filled with everything that I love very dearly. However, there are two of my most favourite things that I will definitely never step out of my house without. Being a sucker for lipsticks, I always carry the MAC Retro Matte Lipstick, which is a savior in case I have some "unfinished business" left at the end of the day. Also, the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation, which gives a less-tired look, if needed.
Tanaya Seth - Editorial Coordinator
Although I am not much of a makeup person, there are some beauty essentials that every girl must own. My favourite lip color is Colorbar Flirtatious Pink Take Me As I Am Lipstick as it gives a natural look along with just a hint of pink - perfect for daily wear and can be worn to office as well as to any day outing. The Mac Hydrating Mist is so handy, especially when you’re on the go. And if your skin feels sticky and horrible, then this mist does wonders! :)
