Cleaning out your handbag and tossing up between what to keep and what to throw? Take note of our beauty essentials you should defiantly carry in your bag


Nobody wants to step outside with dry skin—however, winter weather forces us to do just that. With this in mind, always be prepared with a moisturiser that can be applied to both your hands and face.

SOS concealer

Dark circles and unwanted pimples are definitely not a girl’s best friend. Always carry a handy concealer for those unexpected skin issues.

Lip balm

Similar to moisturiser, there’s simply nothing worse than dry, cracked lips. Make sure you always have a go-to lip balm somewhere in your bag in case of an emergency.


If you’re having one of those days where you’d prefer to stay invisible to the world, make sure you carry a pair of sunglasses in your bag.

Hand sanitiser

If you’re out and about, it’s best to carry a small bottle of hand sanitiser. Applying this every time you touch a dirty surface, you’ll be protecting yourself from any nasty germs and bugs.

Hair accessories

Ok, so your hair may look luscious in that down-style, but boy is it annoying! Avoid this irritating scenario all together by carrying a few hair accessories and pins in your handbag.

Nail file

In case of a nail emergency—whether it be a chipped or jagged nail—it’s always a good idea to carry a spare nail file in your handbag.


There’s nothing worse than having a sudden headache appear, especially when you’re on the go. To bust these unwanted aches, always be armed with a packet of painkillers.

Dry shampoo

If you’re constantly on the run, you’ll probably find your hair looses its va-va-voom. Give it back some body with a few sprays of dry shampoo—ahh, that’s better!
