Life as a fashionista is demanding and at times a bit stressful. You always seem to need something you do not have to make your final look complete, and it seems like you are always rummaging through your bag. Having a great bag is essential, but being prepared is just as serious. This is why we compiled a list of must have handbag essentials to make your life a bit easier. Keep this in individual bags in your Purse as small, easily accessible kits for all of life’s biggest curve balls.
The Makeup Touch Ups
Having your life revolve around makeup is fun, but when things start to go wrong, the fun leaves. Pack some powder and/or Blotting Sheets to eliminate oil and look together, as well as mini makeup remover Q-Tips to fix any smudges or eyeliner or mascara from rubbing or accident. The blotting sheets will be your best friend to make your foundation look fresh, like you just put it on. Be careful with power so things do not get cakey. If your nails are painted, keep the color along to touch up if you have an unfortunate chip. Finally, keep a lipstick that gives you confidence when you need that extra boost.
The Freshen Up Tricks
Feeling grimy throughout the day? Put together a kit of breath mints, Portable toothbrushes, sanitizer, and a perfume sample to fix and smells or dirty feelings you may have. The sanitizer will keep you clean, and the mouth care items will eliminate any coffee stains or onion bagels. Finally, the perfume will keep you smelling fresh, and ready if you see someone you want to impress. Nothing should get in the way of your smile.
Your Link to the World
Your Phone connects you to what is going on inside and outside of work, so it should always be on hand. Put it in a wallet leather phone case to keep your cards and cash nearby when you use your phone, so you are linked to others and the assets you need. Make sure to pack a portable charger as well so you are never without contact. Portable chargers are the best thing, you can have big blocks for multiple charges, or a smaller adapting block to give a quick reboost. They come in many fashionable patterns as well!
