Hey Curvy Girly’s!
We all fill our bags with everything from hair products, makeup, extra pairs of anything …just in case. But what are the essentials that you can’t leave the house without on a daily basis? For me there are a few things that are must no matter what purse I’m carrying. On a day-to-day, I love carrying my Dooney and Burke bag. It was a gift a few years ago and it’s been my favorite go-to bag for work!
Let’s start with my mini makeup bag. On a daily basis, I don’t wear a much makeup. Just concealer, mascara, a little powder and gloss. So, my makeup bag only holds the essentials. I love my MAC Mineralized Skin Finish in Deep Dark. It gives me light coverage and also help to combat the shine. I always keep my mini powder brush by Sephora, Love & Beauty Mirror from Forever21, and Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm. Carrying an extra mascara is a must, just in case I decide to have drinks after work or meet up with some friends, a great way to give you instant glam is to apply loads of mascara to make those eyes pop and this travel size Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme is perfect. I’ve been wearing the clear MAC lipglass Lip Gloss for years. This just stays in my purse to give me instant shine anytime. A girl always needs to smell good, so I keep my travel size Eau De Parfum in FAME by Lady GaGa. It’s has the perfect sweetness that not too much!
I keep another small bag in my purse filled with those items that always seems to come in handy at just the right moment. Having natural hair means having to stay ready for a hairstyle change at any moment. You can leave the house with a fabulous afro, but if there is any humidity in the hair, you will end up with this shrunken version of a fro’ that doesn’t always turn out right, so I keep bobby pins on hand to change my hair style in a seconds notice. Plus, if I do decide to go out after work, I can easily change-up my look. Aveeno Hand Lotion and Purell Hand Sanitizer is always with me, it just makes sense. I also keep a mini sewing kit for those unexpected moments, my eye glass kit because I have a bad habit of mishandling my sunnies frequently and this kit has save a girl on many occasions. Aspirin is always good to keep on hand, so I try to have a least two of these packs on me all the time. And finally some double stick fashion tape, you never want to be out in the world and have a wardrobe malfunction..
Other essentials include my business cards because I’m always in network mode, my personal cell phone and my work cell and of course my Fossil wallet. I love fossil wallets. I’ve purchased several over they years and I still have all of them because they last forever!
Those are my essentials. What are the essentials and must have that you keep in your purse at all times?
