Handbag Beauty Essentials

Hello everyone!

I don't know about you, but I always carry some beauty essentials with me wherever I go. I keep all of my essentials in a Jack Wills small makeup bag, and today I am going to be sharing with you everything that is in the bag.

Powder:
I always keep some sort of pressed powder in my handbag so that I can dust some on my face as and when I need it. I tend to get oily on my nose and forehead towards the end of the day so if I am going to be out for the whole day then this is a MUST! At the minute I have the LA Girl Pro Face Matte Pressed Powder. This is really handy because the compact also includes a mirror and sponge, so it's a 3 in 1 product. 

Powder Brush:
Of course, to go along with my powder I like to keep my powder brush in my bag too. I have the Real Techniques Powder Brush because it's really soft and applies powder well. I know that the LA Girl powder comes with a sponge to apply it with, but it's not really something I would use to apply powder. If I was in a pinch and forgot my powder brush then I definitely would use the sponge though! 

Lipstick:
I like to carry with me whatever lipstick I am wearing on a particular day. I never know when I'm going to need to reapply my lipstick, but most of the time I never actually end up re applying. I like to wear matte liquid lipsticks which last incredibly well on the lips so they do stay in place all day. Some of my favourites are the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipsticks as they're really long lasting and feel really comfortable on the lips. If you would like to see a post on my other favourite liquid lipsticks, then do let me know in the comments and I will do that soon. 

Lip Balm:
Some days if my lips are feeling particularly dehydrated then I like to carry a lip balm around with me and then constantly apply that throughout the day. I have tons of lip balms but I love the Albus & Flora lip balms as they contain SPF 30 (not that I need it in England!) and are really moisturising too. Obviously I don't apply lip balm when I have on a lipstick, but some days I do like to give my lips a breather from all of the matte lipsticks I wear. 

Mini Perfume:
Before leaving the house I always spritz myself with perfume, but I do like to keep a miniature bottle in my bag for using when I'm out and about. At the moment I have a mini YSL Black Opium perfume in my bag because it is my all time favourite perfume. If you have not smelt this perfume before then you definitely need it, it smells incredible! 

What beauty essentials do you keep in your handbag?


Until next time,
