Handbag beauty essentials

Don't leave the house without these essential beauty must-haves!

We’ve all been there: Running late for an important job interview, sweating as we change from buses to trains and trams. Then, by the time we arrive, we end up looking and feeling a little bit worse for wear. It’s in these moments that we often think to ourselves, “If only I had brought a hairbrush/lip balm/concealer… ”

“But sometimes I can’t even remember to pack my house keys, let alone beauty items!” We hear your cries, and have compiled only the most important essentials from a range of brands. And don’t worry if you’re not keen on the idea of weighing your handbag down – you can pick and choose items based on your needs! While frizzy hair gals might prefer to carry a hairbrush, those who never seem to get eight hours of sleep might favour a concealer.

To help you get started, we’ve picked out our favourite handbag beauty essentials, hopefully saving you from any more awkward sweaty interviews!
