All women have developed a make-up routine and instinctively known which the safest beauty products are to always carry along. If you consider all the beauty products that come in handy, you might end up with an oversized bag when all you’ve wanted for the day was a small and chic purse. Below you can find the beauty products that can save you from almost any situation.
What Makeup to Keep In Your Purse: A Practical Guide
We all know that women are unique especially when it comes to complexion. Skin types, sensitivities and irritation risks make it almost impossible to create a list which fits everyone. However, below you can find the products that all women should have in their purses, regardless of their brand. For a researched plan, you should also consult with products reviews on specialized websites such as Beauty Essential.
1. Pressed Powder
So many women carry a foundation in their purse. The product does an excellent job, especially if it’s well-chosen. It covers skin imperfections and balances your complexion. The mineral foundation prevents the formation of excessive oil while moisturizing your skin.
However, there is a product which is easier to apply on the go – pressed powder. You can discreetly open and apply some powder even when you’re in the cab. It covers blemishes, evens your skin tone and absorbs oil. The powder also keeps the spilling risk away from your purse. You can use a small quantity of pressed powder whenever you feel the need to conceal something on your face. Another great product to try cushion compacts, the latest trend in K-Beauty.
2. Stained Lip Gloss
Lipstick always comes in handy, since the intense color of your lips vanishes right after you eat. On the dark side, lipstick requires a lip liner and more time to apply. Instead, turn to a stained lip gloss which also helps you define and enhance your lips size. Lip glosses usually contain a sun protection factor (SPF) which also keep your lips healthy and save you from additionally looking for the lip balm. Your lips remain moist and colored throughout the day. If you keep the lip gloss in a small purse pocket, you also minimize spill risks.

Your cheeks may lose color throughout the day. The quickest and most efficient way to balance pigmentation differences and keep your cheeks colored is to apply a blush. They usually come with their own brushes, so you won’t need to keep a makeup brush in your purse. Blushes can be applied on your cheekbones, brow-bone, and nose and gets you a natural sun-kissed matte look. The blush can also work as an eyeshadow.
You can also find stain products which work for both your cheeks and lips. Many women mention that they like to keep their purse as make-up free as possible and multifunctional beauty products usually come in handy. However, you should make sure that the product is easy to apply and doesn’t require too much time to color your cheeks.
Your eyes look beautiful and well-defined when you leave home. Mascara fades, smudges and clumps throughout the day. If you sweat, it rains, or you’ve rubbed your eyes, the situation becomes darker. So, you will need to re-apply mascara. Find a neutral black mascara that you can easily carry in your purse. There are many tubes of mascaras which come in sample sizes to help you save purse space. By coloring the eyelashes, mascara also covers up eyeshadow make-up that may fade.
5. Blotting Paper
Blotting paper is your saving kit if you have oily or combination skin. During summer, your T-zone begins to shine and get oily. It makes your complexion look and feels unwashed, while it ruins your precise make-up. Blotting paper works only with a wipe which takes a few minutes. The paper absorbs oil while leaving your face skin look fresh and helps your makeup stick together.
Additional Beauty Products You Might Use Throughout the Day
• Eyeliner defines the limits of your eyes and it can easily transform a day make-up style in a sexy night make-up.
• Lip balm can save you during a day at the beach when you don’t need color on your lips, but SPF protection is mandatory.
• A top coat protects your nails from chipping and helps you quickly fix a color issue. It also works as a barrier between cheap metals from clothes and your skin.
Preparing Your Purse
There are so many items that might be useful if you have them with you every day. Safety pins, napkins, some snacks, chewing gum. Yet, if you grab all of them and stick them into your purse, you will end up turning to that oversized purse you’ve avoided. Make sure you only have essential beauty products with you and constantly clean up your purse.
Purses are so important to women that we tend to fill them with skin care, make-up, hair care and nail care beauty products. However, they don’t need to be full. A balanced purse will look better and give you some storage for unexpected purchases. So, take care of your purse and enjoy a fresh face skin!
