My Must Have Handbag Products

Today I thought I would tell you all about my hand bag beauty essentials! I carry them round with me most days but never really tell anybody about them so here I am, giving them some praise.

Concealer - I always carry a concealer with me because my face is naturally very red, sometimes it can't help but peak through! Very frustrating but in these tragic situations I pat on some concealer with my finger to cover up the redness. My current favourite is the Rimmel Wake Me Up but I also enjoy taking the Maybelline Better Skin because it's so small and pigmented.

Powder - I don't know about you but I can't apply concealer without setting it with powder! I don't always carry a big brush like that pictured, sometimes I use the small brushes that come with powder although I find that the sponges that often come with powders don't apply very well. I like to carry square powders, like the Maybelline Fit Me, because I find they fit well into bags and slot into small spaces. The Fit Me is also great because it doesn't look cakey no matter how much I seem to apply!

Tinted Lip Balm - Most people tend to carry a lip balm with them but I prefer a tinted lip balm. Mainly because I often forget to bring the lip colour I applied with me and I can't stand my lips without any colour on them. I mean what's better than some lip hydration? Lip hydration with a hint of colour, of course! I generally go for red tinted lip balms, the one shown here is Max Factor Colour Intensifying Balm which is a very pigmented lip balm.

Fragrance - Do you ever get that feeling that you smell? Even if people tell you that you don't, you cannot help but be paranoid! For occasions such as this I like to carry a small sample of fragrance; the one shown is a sample of Philosophy Amazing Grace but I prefer vials that have a spray because they are easier to apply.

Setting Spray - Now I don't always carry a setting spray with me but if I know I'm going to be out a long time it can be super handy! If my make up looks a bit weird, cakey or dry I just give a little spritz and it refreashes my face while improving the wear time. This technique is also great if I have reapplied concealer and powder causing a cakey look. My favourite one to use is the budget friendly Maybelline Super Stay.

I have been known to carry a mirror with me but if I happen not to have one I simply use my front facing camera on my mirror!
