Emergency On The Go Beauty Kit! What is yours?

Earlier this week I had a killer busy day, one of those where you’re booked up with appointments from 8 in the morning til 9pm at night. I love it, although in my experience, by the end of the day I am a sweaty, greasy, fumbling hot mess.  Indeed, following directions and getting around is not my forte.

Cat flying

But this time I wanted to be prepared for the inevitable getting sweaty and lost!  Without carrying far too much stuff (I hate heavy bags) I made sure my handbag contained:

1) Tissues – to wipe everything and anything up

2) Tweezers and nail clippers – I have a thing about nails that are half coming off and stray hairs. They bug me for the WHOLE days so I have to remove them.

3) All in one foundation, powder, concealer – To top up the skin when it’s getting sweaty or looking blotchy!

4) Chewing gum – Fresh breath baby! No matter what you end up eating!

5) Deodorant/Perfume – Essential!

Other none beauty items:

6) Emergency Phone Charger – I can’t do anything without my phone

7) Notebook and Pen – For train journeys

8) Money, lots of money – For shopping, or in case of an emergency!

9) Printed map – Because you never know when googlemaps will stop working

Do you ever have these crazy busy days where you’re out and about in a different town? If so what do you carry?

    I like to carry moist towelettes for cleaning up, biore refreshing towelettes with spf for the face, eyeliner, gum, battery powered phone charger

    I always have cucumber cleansing wipes, mascara & brow liner as I have really light eyebrows and straight eyelashes; and a really good lipgloss. A good book, a small handbag for when you realise you only have the “too big” one you took everything in and of course a tourist map for where ever you are headed so you can find a decent place to eat.

    I always carry tissues, lip balm, cleansing wipes, lipstick, powder & mini kabuki brush, sunglasses, pen, smart phone, wallet, and cash. In warm weather, I carry sunscreen.

    If on business, laptop, charger, phone charger, and a notebook. Also, two micro camels.

    If I know I’m gonna be out for a full jam-packed day, my bag will be about a tonne heavier! I have a bad habit of overpacking as I always think “just in case”. It’s a nightmare when I pack for holidays!
    If it’s just a normal 9-5 sort of day, all I’ll have on me is a mirror, concealer, travel size perfume, kleenex, antibacterial hand gel, eye drops, lip balm, purse and keys
