It is a fact that since times immemorial, we ladies are known for grooming ourselves up to look beautiful. The necklaces, beads, bangles, etc found in the archaeological studies testify this. Yeah, we as women do a lot of things – take care of home, kids, work, deadlines, teas-coffees. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, the list is never-ending. Nothing wrong with spending a little time for ourselves to groom up and look good, right?
No, it is not necessary to go to the beauty parlor and spend hours on makeup. All you need to look beautiful and fresh throughout the day is Just a little touch-up and lots of confidence. Yeah... That’s all. Pretty common sense that makeup done in the morning fades away by two or maximum three hours. So, there must be frequent touch-ups so that you keep looking fresh throughout the day. It just take a couple of minutes at a time.
But there is more. Our handbags are definitely not backpacks. They can’t contain the whole of the dressing table.
So, here are the 5 Must have Beauty Essentials that you must have in your Handbag. These are useful for a quick touch up so that you don’t look worn out in a meeting in the late evening after work.
The number one item on this list is Concealer. A concealer basically helps you to hide dark circles, wrinkles, redness and even out the discoloration. Look for one with a doe foot applicator, which makes it easy to apply anywhere. Also, make sure it has a smooth consistency so that it is easy to blend in and hide dark circles and fatigue without looking patchy. An essential commodity to get an instant Hollywood like getup!
Bonus Tip: Look for the concealer that contains micro-fine light diffusing pigments to blur those age lines(wrinkles).
2. Face Mist
Work often gives less time to give to beautiful looks. In fact, it also stresses us out – both physically and mentally. Working for long hours in an AC room, moisturizes the skin, especially the face, which is three times more sensitive than skin in other parts of the body.
So apart from your favorite bottle of don julio tequila, a bottle of face mist is a must in your handbag. It comes in handy when you feel tired, or your skin starts to get itchy. Just apply the face mist and instantly feel fresh. Using a mist spray like Radha Beauty's USDA Organic rosewater toner gives the freshness of rose to your delicate face. It helps balance skin’s pH, reduces skin irritation, tightens pores and soothes your skin. A must have if you are out on a motorcycle road trip. You can thank me later!
Bonus Tip: Look for a formula that has antibacterial properties and which is designed for sensitive and allergy prone skin, to get that instant freshness.
3. Tinted Lip Balm
Frequent exposure to heat or constant working in the air-conditioned room may dehydrate the lips and leave behind flaky irritated lips. So, a lip balm which soothes your lips and moisturizes them is indeed one of the must-haves in your handbag. A tinted one comes with a hue of a color, saving you from carrying another lip product.
Bonus Tip: Look for products rich in shea butter and vitamin E, which help moisturize the lips, leaving them soft and plump.
4. Face Compact
No matter how carefully you apply makeup in the morning, a hot, humid and a tiring day makes the makeup fade away. So, a face compact comes handy while giving those frequent and quick touch-ups which make your face look flawless.
Bonus Tip: Look for a face compact which is translucent, making your face look natural and matte. Also, look for a non-comedogenic formula to prevent clogging of pores.
5. Eye Liner or Kajal
Indeed, eyes are the first thing that anybody notices on the face. So, it is essential that the eyes are given due attention during make-up. No matter how smudge free your Kajal is, it starts fading away in a few hours spoiling your looks. And I promise smudged eyeliner will ruin your look completely even if you are wearing that perfect white corset dress. So, keep this one handy to keep looking fresh throughout the day.
Wait. Though we promised to give the 5 Must-Have Beauty Essentials in your Handbag, that’s not all. There are two more important must-haves to be omnipresent in your handbag, without which any sort of a touch up may get messed up. Any guesses? Yes, that important thing is a Hand mirror.
Correct!! You first need something to look into before deciding if it is the time for a touch-up and to make out what is wrong. So, this is the must-have in your handbag. A hand mirror can be used to see if you still look fresh, has your lipstick faded or has your Kajal smudged or is your hair properly made.
Imagine, you have applied all the makeup on your face but your hairstyle is that of Einstein!! That spoils the show. So, make sure you have a comb in your handbag always. Isn’t it that hair is a part of beauty for women? Hair also deserves its share of attention while touching up.
These were the 5+2 Most Commonly followed Must-Have Beauty Essentials in your Hand Bag. So, ladies out there, equip your beauty armory with these must-haves and look beautiful. Be pitch perfect in an instant even for a wine party with these basic touch-ups.
All the Best!! Happy Looking Beautiful!!
