Firstly, I’d like to admit that I’m not one of those ladies that have the most neatly organised handbags. One thing I pride myself in though is ensuring that my bag is packed with all the convenience I need once I leave my house. We cannot downplay the lifesaving role that our bags play when it comes to ensuring that we maintain our beauty goals, or at least remain decent looking enough throughout our busy days.
Here are 5 crucial beauty products you should always have in your handbag:
- Day Cream With SPF
SPF is every dermatologist’s number one tip for a flawless complexion. However, the beauty industry has seen a move from heavy sunblock creams that leave you looking like a ghost to the use of SPF moisturisers that are lightweight, non-sticky, and super hydrating. Because I barely wear make-up to work, I swear by QMS’ Active Glow SPF15 colour adaptive day cream. This tinted cream helps to blur imperfections to reveal visibly glowing, even skin with minor touchups throughout my busy days.
- Pocket-Size Perfume
One of my goals in life is to ensure that I smell like money no matter what time of the day. But the way life is set up, this isn’t always achievable. Keeping a small perfume that doesn’t take up a lot of space always does the trick when my fragrance fades after some time. I rotate my perfumes based on seasons and my mood but presently, the timeless, and feminine CHANEL N°5 fragrance goes wherever I go.
- Hydrating Mist
Let’s all agree that a Hydrating Mist is worth the hype. Besides having a few known benefits such as refreshing the skin, working as a midday pick-me-up, and a “healthier” makeup setting spray, they can also hydrate your skin and lock in the moisture on the go. QMS’ Hydrating Boost Tonic Mist works to balance the skin’s pH level and to regenerate its protective acid mantle after cleansing or throughout the day. How did I live without this lifesaver again?
- Lip Gloss/Lip Balm
Keeping your lips moisturised is a full-time job. There is nothing worse than catching a glance of yourself in a mirror and noticing how washed out you’re looking in between your meetings. I carry my favorite Fenty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer to make sure my lips are always nourished and glossy no matter what the day has in store for me.
- Quality Hand Cream
I have really dry skin and as a result, my hands tend to be rough, which can be unpleasant whenever I have to greet or interact with people. Due to this, I have to ensure they stay moisturised and smooth at all times for that graceful look and feel.
BEING A GORGEOUS GORGEOUS GIRL IS AN ALL-DAY EVERYDAY JOB!
