Handbags are essential to every gal these days. Sure, they complete an outfit and can turn a look from drab to fab, but they also house all of our daily essentials. Looking good on the go is tough, but with a few select products, you can ensure your look stays flawless all day long. Here are the best picks of everyday handbag essentials to keep you looking fabulous when you’re on the move.
A multi-use balm
Never underestimate the power of a good balm product. The right balm will help keep your hands moisturized, your lips hydrated and smooth away flyaway hair in an instant. Choose a product that is versatile, non-drying and long lasting with some excellent recommendations for beauty balms here to suit all budgets. With limited space for beauty products you need to choose carefully, and anything that is multi-use will be a benefit to your on-the-go beauty.
Good makeup brushes
If you are one of those gals that prefer to touch up your makeup look throughout the day, then you’ll need some good brushes to take with you on the move. Never use your fingers to apply face products, as you know, your hands have been, well, everywhere. Sigma beauty products are some of the best in the business, and they sell some excellent travel containers to protect your brushes in your handbag. Remember to clean them regularly to keep bacteria and other nasties at bay.
A face palette
Now I’m all for not apologizing for being high maintenance, however, carrying every single makeup product with you is not only impractical, but it’s heavy! Nobody needs a handbag full of makeup, so you need to pick your products carefully to allow for touch ups during the day. A face palette is one of the best beauty investments you can make, and more brands are bringing out palettes that contain everything you need to create a look on the move. Choose a palette that features some highlighter and bronzer powder, blush and some eyeshadows to help you make little touch-ups without your entire arsenal of cosmetics.
A mini hairspray/dry shampoo
We all have been there when you start your day with one hair texture and by midday, it’s changed. You can’t always depend on the weather, so it’s nice to have some emergency hair products in your purse in case you ever need them. Creating an easy style like simple natural curls in the morning can set you up for the day, and having some hair products to hand can help you switch up your style if needed or give it a refresh. It’s also worth keeping some hair ties or grips in your bag to create an updo if you need to change from day to evening or are battling some really challenging weather.
Maintaining your beauty look throughout the day can be a challenge, but with the right beauty essentials in your bag, you can be confident knowing you can maintain your beauty look all day long. Invest in products that have multiple uses or come in travel sizes to help you save space, and you’ll have the perfect mobile beauty kit ready for that last minute hang or those Instagram Selfies. RL
