What every woman should have in her purse at all times.

By yana

Are you Fabulously40 and beyond?  Do you travel and sometimes need to pull an all nighter?  Never leave your house without these essentials:

makeup

*Lip Glass will keep your lips chap free and kissable

*Dental floss.  *  Toothpaste        *Mini Mouth Wash

(will leave you feeling fresh regardless of how many hours you've been up)

  • Mini Hairspray.   (no need for a bad hair day)
  • Perfume sample -  usually are fairly small and okay to carry on the plane.
  • Visine  – it gets the red out
  • Mini-lotion – to cure dry hands or flaky legs.
  • Mini deodorant. Keep dry and fresh in any crisis.
  • Clear nail polish to fix any runs or snags you may get in your hose.
  • Tampon or mini pad – just in case.
  • Bronzing powder – comes in handy as blush or eye shadow and even under clear gloss on your lips.
  • Mascara – to make your eyes stand out.

    • Love the list.  

      I had to run out of the house without makeup a few months ago, because I was running late, and I thought I’d put some makeup on in the car at red lights. As it turns out, I hadn’t thought of things like mascara, and I don’t have eyebrows! :) (And I hadn’t thought to put an eyebrow pencil in my purse.) Thankfully my friend who I was going out with had all those things in her purse, so I could at least look like I came from planet Earth.

      I would add to the list: some sort of oil-blotter or pressed powder.

      Thanks Yana!

      Namaste,
      Suzann

    • Suzann - you are funny - who said that planet earth creatures need eyebrows ?  

      Yours and Yana’s post really says a lot about the two of you vs. me. Why ?? Because I need a complete arsenal of CONCEALER !!!!!  I can do without almost anything else.  

      I keep a very small bag with me at all times that has a lip pencil, a small lip and cheek tint, and then I have a small pill box ( from CVS) with four compartments. I put a little concealer of different shades in three of the compartments and the fourth has a lipstick that doubles as a blush.  

      Oh and I take a small tube of moisturizer with SPF in it EVERYWHERE.

    • For me, it’s eye lash glue! Bandaids and Neosporin are good to have in your bag, along with a nail file and nail clippers. I always carry a pair of tweezers for when you look in your rear view mirror and discover a 3” hair growing on your chin! WHy is it that you see all the ugly stuff in that mirror??
      Hugs to you all,
      Kelly

    • I always carry Oxy Clean wipes in my purse; they have saved many a garment for myself and others.
