Girls (and boys) with handbags know how difficult it is to keep things neat and organized, especially when you feel like the thing you just decided to throw out ends up being the one that you need the most the very moment you leave your home. Can you imagine how difficult it must be then, to keep your beauty bag organized? No matter how minimalistic you strive to be, there will always be things you simply need to have in your ‘beauty kit’, and a few more that you never expected could come in handy when you want to make yourself irresistible.
1 – A squidger
This is an amazing gadget that is going to make your life so much easier! A squidger is a simple yet convenient tool which helps you squeeze out the last bit of the product from the tube, be it toothpaste, moisturizer, cleanser, foundation or pretty much anything that comes in a tube. While you could cut out the tube in order to get the last bit of the product, it will leave a mess in your bathroom and your beauty bag, which is why you really, really need a squidger.
2 – Coconut oil
One of the most useful and versatile ingredients in the world, coconut oil is here for you no matter whether you’re looking for a healthy alternative for cooking oil or an organic makeup remover and moisturizer. Stubborn eye makeup will come off easily with coconut oil, your dull skin will get its shine back, your chapped lips will be soft and smooth again, and you won’t have to worry about those cracked cuticles again. As coconut oil is solid at room temperature, you can carry it around in an empty lip balm container and apply it when you need it.
Any person that loves glitter needs to have a tube of strong glitter glue in their beauty bag. While it’s perfect for those nights out in the club, glitter glue will come in handy with the Halloween costumes as well.
4 – Nail polish remover jar
Nail polish remover is an absolute must in a beauty bag, but the bad thing is that you have to pair it up with cotton pads, plus it leaves a huge mess. If you’re looking for an easy, stress-free and mess-free way to remove your nail polish, you can make your own nail polish remover jar by putting two sponges in a small jar and soaking them with nail polish remover. You will be able to clean your nails without needing any cotton pads or tissues, and you can also take it everywhere with you.
5 – A silicone sponge
Beauty blenders are a must-have in any beauty bag, but silicone sponges have taken it one step further. When you use beauty blenders, they tend to soak up some of the product you’re using, so basically you have to use more foundation, concealer, and highlighter than you would use with a SiliSponge. The best thing is that you won’t have to toss it after a few months and you can get it in sparkle!
6 – Overnight lip masks
As the weather changes and it gets colder, your skin suffers, but so do your lips. This is where lip masks step in – overnight lip masks are handy as you can keep them by the bed and put them on before going to sleep. Next morning, you will wake up with smooth and hydrated lips which will look great covered with lip gloss or lipstick.
7 – SPF moisturizer
Moisturizer is important, but so is sun protection, which is why it’s great to have one product for both these things. Purple Peach online retailer offers great POLA Whitissimo brightening moisturizers with 15 SPF. It’s great for brightening skin that’s been overexposed to the sun as well as for people with freckles.
Oh, we all know that makeup is an art form and that the makeup world can be complicated, but your beauty bag doesn’t have to be filled with expensive products if you want to get the best results in a blink of an eye. Take time to understand your skin and to establish a proper skin care routine, only then will you be able to see which products you actually can’t live without.
