For a makeout-friendly makeup freelance piece, I touched base with several makeup pros on what works for them. One artist mentioned what I like to call "The Morning After Makeup Kit."
"Whatever you're doing, wear what is comfortable for you, especially if you think your date will take you into the bedroom later," says Melissa Gibson, MAC Senior Artist. "If that's the case, less is more, and always have an emergency makeup kit in your purse."

Your morning after makeup kit might be a bit different from your everyday touch-up stuff, which for some could be just down to lipstick and powder. A good morning after makeup kit should provide all the tools you need for a speedy fresh face that works with that morning-after glow. Gibson recommends:
tinted moisturizer (or your new favourite bb cream)
a powder compact with a mirror
sheer lipstick or gloss
Of course, you'll want to build your date-night makeup around these items so they'll be useful while you're out the night before. "This will make any necessary touchups easy, and allows you to apply a fresh face the next morning," says Gibson.
Do you have a Morning-After Makeup Kit? Is anything missing from this list? Other than this, I mean.
