A girl on the go has got to have her beauty products readily available, no matter where she is! Whether you’re out running errands, at the office or on a road trip, a beauty disaster could strike without a moment’s notice! Don’t get caught unprepared — keep these bad boys on hand at all times by stashing them in your bag, desk and car AT ALL TIMES! We sure do.
Lip Balm: Maybelline Baby Lips
A gal should never leave the house without the proper lip balm! You just never know when your lips might need to be extra soft *wink, wink*.
Facial Wipes: Garnier Skin Care Clean + The Refreshing Remover Cleansing Towelettes
Whether you accidentally smeared your lipstick during lunch, fudged up your cat eye or need to give your skin a swipe before your gym sesh, cleansing wipes have got your back, er, face.
Oil-Absorbing Sheets: NYX Blotting Paper
Raise your hand if you have oily skin! When your makeup turns into a slippery slope just hours after application, whip out a packet of blotting sheets from your purse to de-slick, quick!
Foundation Compact: Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Compact
Make foundation application a breeze by carrying an extra compact around for emergency touch ups … and trust us, those come up. Darn you, surprise pimple!
Red Lipstick: Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge in Rouge Amour
Rough 8 a.m. meeting? There’s nothing like a bright, bold shade of lipstick to turn your day around. Or if you had a loooong night, swipe on some red lipstick to liven up your look! No one will notice your dark circles when you’re rocking a fierce, red lippie.
Smoothing Hair Sheets: Kérastase Carré Lissant
If you caught a glance of your hair this morning and it resembles that of a lion’s mane, smooth away your frizz and flyaways with these easy-to-store hair sheets. Warning, everyone in the office might give you funny looks, thinking you’re rubbing your hair with dryer sheets, but hey, they work!
Rollerball Perfume: YSL Manifesto Rollerball
No time to shower this morning? Extra hot in the office? Or maybe you just want to smell extra sweet. Stash a mini perfume bottle or rollerball in your desk so you can smell like a meadow whenever you want.
Cuticle Oil: essie Apricot Cuticle Oil
Sitting through a long presentation or client call can make a gal do bad things to her cuticles. Stop the picking and rub in some cuticle oil for nail beds your coworkers would be jealous of!
Deodorant: Kiehl’s Superbly Efficient Anti-Perspirant and Deodorant
You (and all those around you) will be happy you had this handy after that intense spin cycle or hot yoga session.
Facial Mist: Vichy Thermal Spa Water
Being stuck in traffic after a long day of work can suck the life out of anyone! Give yourself (and your skin) a quick refresh for the long ride. This is especially useful if you’ve got date-night plans and are already feeling a little snoozy.
Sun Protection: L’Oréal Paris Advanced Suncare Quick Dry Sheer Finish Spray 50
Prevent that left arm tan — or the all over sunburn if you’ve got a convertible — by always keeping SPF around. And you never know when you might make a surprise stop at the beach!
Hand Cream: The Body Shop Mini Hemp Hand Protector
If you’re that person that never really needs hand cream until your skin is so parched and itchy you could just DIE, dry and itchy your skin is (guilty!), stash a tube of this stuff in your compartment for moments like this.
And the best part of all these products is that they’re all interchangeable and work perfectly for the busy gal on the go!
There’s way more product picks where that came from!
