Makeup Bag: Beauty When The Lights Go Out
A refreshing spray is beneficial to not just your skin but your overall character. I find in my personal experience that a quick spritz to the face of a hangry housemate immediately disarms and distracts, and a light, pleasant fragrance makes everyone feel just marginally better. Also great for weirdly scented, potentially smoky hair. Mario Badescu Facial Spray, $12, contains aloe, herbs, and rosewater to heal dehydrated skins and spirits; for a more relaxing, bed-ready experience (in case that rose scent is a little too crazy for you), Melvita Lavender Floral Water, $22, imparts the French provincial feeling you so badly need.
