Every morning we take the time to lovingly care for our skin, perfect our makeup, and ensure our hair looks flawless. Then there’s always that moment when you’re out and about and you happen to catch a glimpse of yourself in a random mirror or window. You realize that your lipstick is faded or that one area on your face is shiny again. Yup, we know that dreaded feeling too! Well, we have the five purse beauty products that every girl on the go should have at all times. Trust us, these items could save your look in a pinch and keep you looking stunning from morning to night.

Nude Lip

Lipstick can make or break a look. Which is why it is so important to have one with you at all times. For your handbag staple, find the perfect nude shade that can work on a couple different skin tones. Whether it’s winter or summer, you’ll always have a nude lipstick to match your tan (or lack of one). You can always count on a nude lipstick to polish off your look.

Oil Blotting Sheets

Another must-have item is oil blotting sheets. Sure, they may not be the most glamorous beauty product, but they are very underrated. These sheets have worked miracles for us even on the hottest of days and therefore make for the perfect purse beauty product.


Once you’ve cleared your face of excess oil, reapplying your face powder is important. Oil sheets may remove the shine, but the powder will help to keep it that way. A quick retouch will leave your face matte for hours. A great choice is translucent powder because no matter what foundation you used that morning, it will keep the color in place while leaving a matte finish.


During your busy day, your hair can go through a lot. When your hair starts to fall flat and give in to grease, dry shampoo is the ultimate save. It will restore your volume and shine in a few quick sprays. However, it’s important to find the right shampoo for your hair type to get the most out of that baby.


Finally, a nice scent is always the perfect touch. Find a travel size version of your current favorite fragrance and you are ready to go! This is an easy product to switch up during the year depending on your mood or the season. That final touch of perfume will leave you fresh and ready for the rest of your day.
