Beauty: Essentials to Carry in Your Purse
By Selma Komisky
I don’t know about you but I lug around a ton of stuff in my purse and recently I got to thinking just what are the bare essentials that women should carry? The added weight of carrying full size items and unnecessary clutter puts strain on your shoulder and wrist. So ladies, it’s time to downsize and you will be surprised how much lighter you feel.
Here are a few suggestions:
Mini Travel Size Deodorant
Keep fresh on the go.
Hair Tie or Headband
Handy in case you want to put your hair up or out of your face.
These absorbent little sheets are a way to wipe away excess shine, oil, and sweat. You can pickup this product by visiting Tarte online or any Sephoria or Ulta stores.
Find a color that instantly makes you feel pretty and drop it in that purse!
This item brings quick access for you to keep your important cards organized and to help carry your money on the go (i.e. perfect for carrying some cash in case you are somewhere that doesn’t accept cards).
Cell Phone Charger
A portable charger is great in case your not near an outlet – must have in an emergency!
Breath Mints or Gum
Keep your breath fresh. Always.
If you need a pick me up throw in some nuts or granola bar, fruit to eliminate being hangry.
Compact Brush with Mirror
This item has two functions eliminating space and is available at your local .99 Store – love it!
Mini Bottle of Water
Keep hydrated and take those herbs and meds (if needed) on the go.
Essential for those “just in case” moments. Enough said.
Never leave home without these for your car, house, work, etc. Don’t get locked out.
Mini Sampler of Your Fave Perfume
This tiny travel vile is perfect for a quick spritz when needed to be sweet smelling all day long.
Mascara/Neutral Eye shadow Palette
These two cosmetics are great for touch ups throughout the day.
Pepper Spray/Flash Light
Stay safe with these essentials at school, work, or play.
I saved the best item for last. Take this slim Bible wherever you go for times of refreshment or times to share a good word with someone in need.
