what to keep in your purse makeup bag

Welcome to my blog! Here, I’ll be sharing all of my favorite tips and tricks for keeping your purse makeup bag organized and looking great. From the must-have items to the optional extras, I’ll help you make sure your bag is always ready for anything. So let’s get started!

The basics: lip balm, tissues, and hand sanitizer

There are a few things that every woman should carry in her purse, no matter what the season or her personal style. Here are three purse essentials that every woman should have:

Lip balm: Your lips are one of the first places that dehydration and weather changes will show. Keep your lips hydrated and protected against the elements with a good lip balm.

Tissues: You never know when you or someone else will need a tissue, so it’s always good to have some on hand. Keep a small pack in your purse so you’re always prepared.

Hand sanitizer: Germs are everywhere, and it’s important to keep your hands clean. A small bottle of hand sanitizer is perfect for when you can’t get to a sink to wash your hands.

Makeup essentials: foundation, mascara, and lipstick

When it comes to makeup, there are certain products that are essential for every woman’s purse makeup bag. Foundation, mascara, and lipstick are three of the most important products to keep on hand at all times.

Foundation is key for achieving a flawless complexion. It evens out the skin tone and covers up blemishes. Mascara is a must-have for creating beautiful, long lashes. And lipstick is the perfect finishing touch to any look.

So make sure you always have these three products in your purse makeup bag!

On-the-go touch-ups: blotting papers, face powder, and lip gloss

We all have those days where we could use a little touch-up, whether it’s because we didn’t have time to put on makeup that morning or we’re feeling a little oily mid-day. Whatever the reason, it’s always helpful to have some on-the-go touchups in your purse makeup bag! Here are some essential items:

Blotting Papers: Blotting papers are perfect for getting rid of excess oil without ruining your makeup. Keep a pack in your purse for touch-ups throughout the day.

Face Powder: Face powder can also help absorb excess oil and give you a matte finish. It’s perfect for touching up your makeup before meeting friends for drinks after work or going out on a date.

Lip Gloss: Lip gloss is essential for adding a touch of shine and color to your lips. It’s also great for hydrating your lips if they’re feeling dry.

Emergency items: bandaids, bobby pins, and pain reliever

It’s always a good idea to have a few emergency items in your purse, just in case. You never know when you might need a bandaid, some bobby pins, or some pain reliever. By having these items on hand, you’ll be prepared for anything!

Optional extras: perfume, sunglasses, and gum

As well as the essentials, there are a few optional extras that can come in handy when you’re on the go. Perfume can be refreshing after a long day, and sunglasses can save you from squinting in the sun. Gum can be a lifesaver if you’re trying to avoid bad breath.

Of course, you don’t have to carry all of these things with you all the time. Just choose the ones that suit your needs and taste.

Seasonal items: sunscreen, bug spray, and lip balm

Seasonal items: sunscreen, bug spray, and lip balm
When the weather starts to warm up, it’s important to remember to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Pack a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, as well as a lip balm with SPF to keep your lips from getting sunburnt. If you’ll be spending time outdoors, don’t forget to pack bug spray to keep those pesky bugs away.

Personal items: ID, credit card, and cash

In addition to your makeup, you’ll want to make sure you have some essential personal items in your purse makeup bag. This includes items like your ID, credit card, and cash. Having these things on hand will ensure that you’re prepared for anything that comes your way.

Miscellaneous: hair ties, safety pins, and breath mints

While you may not think of these items as essential to your makeup bag, they can come in handy in a pinch. Hair ties and bobby pins can help tame unruly hair, while safety pins can be used to mend a broken strap or ripped hem. And we all know that mints can be a lifesaver when we’re trying to freshen our breath after a meal.
