12 Things To Keep In Your Handbag/Work Drawer | The Lipstick Hub

I've gathered a bunch of things that you should absolutely keep with you in either your handbag or work drawer. These things will keep you from looking drowsy or will just generally help make your life easier.

1. Sunscreen - This is a must keep in your handbag if you are anything like me and will burn easily because you were born with Snow White skin. I keep a little 35ml tube in my handbag at all times and it doesn't take up much room at all.

2. First Aid Cream - I keep this in my handbag because it comes in handy so often. The one that works for me is the Guardian pharmacy one because its the only one that works for mosquito bites for me. It also works really well for rashes, small burns and cuts.

3. Tweezers - When those nasty hairs show their ugly faces, you need to be prepared.

4. Nail Clippers - Same with hang nails, chips or splits. You need to be prepared for that because some of them hurt way too much to just wait until you get home to get rid of.

5. Nail File - If you're going to keep nail clippers in there you'll probably also need a nail file to keep things clean and crisp.

6. Eyelash curler - As these things can be chunky, I'd probably just keep it in the work drawer. If your eyelashes need a bit of an uplift to make you look more awake, an eyelash curler can be your best friend just before a meeting or lunch date.

7. Makeup Remover Towelettes - Bit of lipstick on your chin from lunch? No worries. Didn't wear a water proof mascara on a rainy day? No worries. Makeup remover wipes have got your back bro.

8. Compact Mirror - Who cares about looking vain when you need to look good. Keep that brow in check and carry a mirror with you so you know when something is out of place.

9. Lip Balm - Chapped lips can come at anytime, the weather could dry them out or they might look a bit worse for wear at the end of a day. Always carry lip balm.

10. Rollerball Perfume - You never know when you might need a touch up and no one likes to carry a full bottle of perfume around. People also don't tend to like it when you spray in public, first of all, there are asthmatics and second, they might not like the smell of what you're wearing anyway. Carry a rollerball.

11. Lip and Cheek Tint - For an extra little wake me up at the end of the day, some lip or cheek tint can make a world of difference to your appearance.

12. Fancy Earrings - Have an impromptu meeting or lunch date that you weren't prepared for? As well as the lip/cheek tint, having a nice pair of earrings can also make a world of difference to your look.
