My Handbag Emergency Kit!

My handbag emergency kit

Everyone has one of these kits right? I'm one of those freak-ishly organised people who puts something away in SUCH a safe place that even I forget where it is! So instead of fumbling in my bucket-sized handbag looking for all these bits and pieces I keep them all in one little zipped bag. Handy huh?

1) Hairbrush

My hair has got so long recently that whenever I go outside and walk into a gust of wind it gets all tangled and tatty in a second. I always carry this little hairbrush with me as it saves space in my handbag but I would love this Andrew Barton gel grip brush which I think would be really good for adding body to my hair whilst styling. That's something every girl wants!

2) Makeup brush

Throughout the day my makeup becomes oily on my face, particularly on my T-zone, but I am able to keep on top of the most of it by using a good non-greasy moisturiser, a high quality primer and finishing powder. I find that a quick swipe of a makeup brush quickly fixes the shiny patches with no effort at all!

3&4) Hair ties and bobby pins

In relation to point 1, sometimes the hairbrush just doesn't do it for me at all and I just need to get my hair out of the way! With two hair ties and a few bobby pins I am able to put my hair up in a quick bun. The best bobby pins I have ever purchased are the Goody ColourCollection stay put bobby pins. My hair is so soft that normal pins just slip out, these work a treat if your hair is the same!

5) Olbas inhaler

A breath of fresh hair for little over £1.50! I can't breathe through my nose as it is but this helps a bit when you are feeling a big congested. 

6&7) Party feet & plasters

I've decided to put these two together as they are both a MUST when your feet are aching from wearing the highest of heels! Skint heels and toes are so painful as I'm sure you know and it really ruins your night when your feet are really uncomfortable! The things we put ourselves through eh? 

8) Cotton buds

Sometimes my concealer would fill the lines around my eyes, nose and mouth during the day, I find that a cotton bud is perfect for blending these in. I also like to use a cotton bud to blend in my lipstick around my lip line when I don't want it to be harsh. Sometimes a blurred lip colour is far easier to wear.

9) Paracetamol

Because no one likes a headache when you have important things to be doing, such as shopping!

What do you have in your handbag emergency kit? have I missed anything?
