If you’re a gal on the go, then you know the struggle of staying presentable throughout the entire day. Your hair starts to frizz, your makeup starts to run and you might be smelling a little ripe after a long day. Trust me, I feel you. Here are 5 of my favorite must- have beauty items that I always carry with me in my purse.
A Good Concealer
No matter how much setting spray you put on your face, your makeup is bound to come off near the end of the day. I always keep a concealer stick handy just in case I need it. You don’t want blemishes or dark circles showing, especially during important meetings or first dates.
High Definition Liquid Concealer, $23.00, available at Smashbox
Amazonian Clay Waterproof 12-Hour Concealer, $22.00, available at Tarte
Cover Girl Ready Set Gorgeous Concealer, $7.99, available at Ulta
A Long Lasting Hairspray
Frizzy hair and fly aways are the worst. Just when you thought your hair was perfect, the humidity hits and it’s a disaster. Always keep a bottle of hairspray in your purse to touch up any loose hairs or humidity problems. That way you’ll be always ready to go.
The Sheriff, $27.00, available at Dry Bar
Holding Spray, $22.00, available at Bumble and bumble
Tresemme Expert Selection Perfectly Undone Brushable Hold Hairspray, $6.49, available at Ulta
An Eyeliner Pencil
You wake up in the morning and put on a perfect face, but by 12 pm half of it’s gone and smudged from stress or the heat. Even if you don’t carry any eye beauty products, an eyeliner pencil is an essential. Not only can you fix your smudged eyeliner, you can fill in your eyebrows and gently coat over your eyelashes (just make sure to go over your brows lightly).
L’Oreal Infallible The Super Slim Liquid Eyeliner, $8.99, available at Ulta
24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil, $20.00, available at Urban Decay
Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner, $20.00, available at Stila
A Travel Size Perfume
No one ever wants to smell bad after a long day. I make sure to keep a travel size spray with me, so I can freshen up whenever I need to. These are all my favorite perfumes at the moment that are always in my bag.
Chloe Rollerball, $25.00, available at Sephora
Daisy Eau So Fresh Spray Pen , $24.00, available at Marc Jacobs
Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Spray, $29.00, available at Sephora
A Fabulous Lip Gloss
You’re probably thinking, how could lip gloss help me? Well I consider it a makeup savior. Your eyes may be on point but no girl can survive with dry lips. I like to apply lip balm first (usually from the drug store) then use one of these three beauties to complete any look.
Urban Decay Lip Junkie Lip Gloss, $19.00, available at Sephora
Lip Gloss, $26.00, available at NARS
Rimmel London Stay Gloss 3D Lip Gloss, $4.99, available at Ulta
