You’ve RSVP’d to the parties, you’ve picked out the perfect outfit and you’ve booked your salon appointment. But what if that all goes down the drain because you’re makeup didn’t stay glam all night long? Well, we have the perfect way you can have your cake and eat it too—Because hey! Who in the hell is watching their weight during the holidays, amirite?!
Below, we’ve listed out a couple of essential makeup and hair items you’d need to carry with you, just for that extra touch up, or new ‘do if you’re a party hopper! Plus, the best part is that these 5 items are guaranteed to fit in your clutch!

1. Compact

While no one can re-touch their base makeup, you can still keep the glam intact by using a compact/pressed powder. If you’re the kind that generally sweats around the nose or eye areas, just dab a tissue gently over and then apply the powder to keep your foundation and concealer looking fresh.

2. Shimmer Gloss

Whether your matte lipstick stays on an entire night or not,  opt to carry a high-shine lip gloss (preferably in a neutral colour) instead. The shimmery flakes and glossiness can amp up your look for a night out without having to re-touch your original colour.

3. Hair Gel

Baby hairs and frizz can be a huge pain in the you-know-what! But a great hack is to carry a clear mascara gel to tame them. Moving the wand with the product through the hair will keep your hairstyle looking perfect!

4. Ties & Bobby Pins

In case of a hair emergency, our recommendation is to carry one of each; a hair tie for when you need to upgrade to a high ponytail, a tiny clip if you need to pin up your bangs, and a bobby pin, or two if you’re baby hairs are all over the place!

5. Perfume

A good scent can leave a lasting impression. So, no matter the number of parties you go to, carrying a tiny roll-on perfume is a must!
