1. A Do-It-All Concealer
Opt for a concealer that’s creamy and true to your skin tone that way you can use it on both under eye baggage and that blemish that appeared out of nowhere. Some even come with a built in powder for the true perfectionists among us!
2. A pretty pink Lipstick
Keep your handbag beauty products light by carrying around a pink lippie that you can double up as a cream blush too. An easy, space saving tip I learnt from my Mumma you want a lipstick with a bit of colour but nothing too garish. Best part? Your lips and blush will always match!
3. Hand Cream
There’s nothing more annoying than dry, irritated hands. Keep a small tube of moisturiser in that handbag beauty list to nourish those hands and even dab a bit on top of your dried out or tired looking makeup to bring it back to life!
4. Shoozing Powder
Hair a bit oily and limp? Rejig it for those after-work drinks with some shoozing powder (it’s the scientific term trust me!). The one I am absolutely loving at the moment is the Bumble & Bumble pret-a-powder. Not only does it give your hair back that just blow-dried bounce but it’s also a sneaky dry shampoo. Perfect!
5. Brown Eyeliner
The Jack of all beauty trades. Pack this little saviour into your side pocket to define your eyes without mascara, fill that gap you just noticed in your brow or give yourself a beauty spot a la Marilyn. What’s your must have beauty product to leave the house? Are there any products you swear by to take you from drab to drool worthy that can fit in your bag’s side pocket? We need to know!
