In case you haven't heard, Julia Barretto is the newest face of Belo and it's not hard to see why. Since the dawn of her career, Julia's been known for her gloriously smooth skin that always seems like it's lit from within. (Ugh, we can only dream of having the same complexion!) And so, when we had the chance to catch up with the newly minted #BeloBaby herself, we couldn't help but ask her about the five beauty essentials she always keeps inside her handbag. Lo and behold, they're your common skincare items and then some. Find out her intriguing picks below and you'll see what we mean:
1. Lip and cheek tint

Lazy beauty junkies know that the easiest cheat to copping fresh, just-pinched skin is a good lip and cheek tint. We suppose Julia touches up once in a while to maintain her rosy glow.
2. Eyelash curler

Sure, having an on-point makeup look will earn you major beauty points, but nothing brightens up your face than having wide-awake eyes. Having a trusty eyelash curler is the first step to achieving that—just top it off with long-lasting mascara!

Okay, at this point, you're probably thinking about how common these bag essentials are, so here's where Julia intrigues us: She actually brings sunblock in her bag! Yup, while we're serious advocates of sun protection, we've only ever heard of sunblock-carrying folk during beach trips—not daily life. So, props to you, Julia, for putting skincare first!
Lottie Sunglasses, P399, SUNNIES STUDIOS, sunniesstudios.com
Ahhh, the fight against UV rays continues. Given her habitual sunscreen usage, it then comes as no surprise that Julia carries a pair of sunglasses with her all the time. Aside from protecting your skin from the harsh sun, don't you think they also make you look instantly cool? Make sure you stash a pair in your bag, stat! They make for good photos for the 'gram, too.
5. Face masks

We saved the best for last. The real shocker in Julia's list of everyday essentials is, believe it or not, face masks! "I think right now the most important item in my bag are my masks," she shares with Preview. She favors no particular brand, so you could go ahead and hoard whatever face mask you find in your nearest drug store or beauty department store. We'll let you decide between putting it on in the car or—gasp—in public.
