Essential Handbag Items

Handbag Essentials That Every Beauty Lover Needs

On average, women purchase around three handbags per year. Now, I am a handbag lover, but I definitely don’t fit into that category. I lust after beautifully designed handbags all of the time! But I would say I probably own around six handbags and I use them all on a regular basis. My handbag is almost like a comfort blanket for me, I take it everywhere. It is packed full of beauty bits,  all of us have our handbag essentials and I wanted to share all of mine with you! Some old gems, some newbies and some amazing inventions that make life SO much easier!

Handbag Essentials That Every Beauty Lover Needs

It is really important to keep my handbag, tidy, practical and also not too heavy. When I’m running my daily errands or I’m out with friends etc. I like to know that if a beauty disaster occurs, I’ve got it covered with my handbag essentials! Recently I have found some really cool things that I have added to my bag that make my life SO much easier and my handbag so much lighter. You guys are going to love them, so sit tight!

Handbag Essentials List



My Mini Makeup Bag

Firstly, let’s start with me saying that although I’m a beauty blogger who adores makeup, I don’t want to be carrying my makeup bag around with me. Reason 1. It’s too big and heavy and reason 2. I would be devastated and also broke if I lost my handbag lol!

Keeping a mini makeup bag inside my handbag works great for me, I fill it with little travel size products, including skincare and hair products too. This is perfect for little makeup touch ups or if you need a spritz of hairspray. I will list everything I keep in my mini bag below as a little checklist for you guys! (I have also added direct links from the list so you know where to get the exact products that I use). These are the items that are always in my handbag essentials list!




Handbag Essentials

I know that seems like a lot of stuff but honestly, they all fit in the mini makeup bag like a dream because they are so small and lightweight. I’d say they are the little basics that I always have with me and to be honest I have needed them all at some point while I’m out and about. Now, we have done the basic items, let’s move onto the bigger stars of the show. I have four more things I keep in my makeup bag that I can’t live without. They are SO handy!


Four very different but wonderful handbag essentials

Puff.ME Volumising Powder Mist

Handbag Essentials List

A new product that has recently made it into my handbag essentials list, the Puff Me powder! This product was sent to me to try. After doing a little YouTube research (as you do), I thought the results of this product looked amazing!

It is the first and original volumizing powder spray in a pump, creating instant volume on damp or dry hair. I was fascinated when I first pumped this product, I have never seen anything like this. When you press the pump down with your finger a spray of powder shoots out, hitting the roots of your hair to create the perfect volume! The results are very impressive too. One of my favourite things about this is the gorgeous baby pink packaging. You guys know I’m easily sold to when the packaging is pretty. But I’m thrilled to say whats inside the packaging doesn’t disappoint. This hair product retails on the Sally Beauty website for £9.95.

“It fits neatly in your handbag along with your beauty essentials to keep you styled-pretty for any adventure.”

Twist & Spritz Rose Gold Atomiser

Handbag Essentials

The ‘Twist & Spritz’ perfume refillable spray is one of the ultimate handbag essentials! All you have to do is decanter your favourite perfume into this 8ml atomiser, and you will have a smaller, lighter weight version of your favourite fragrance for your handbag. This is genius! I’m also obsessed with the fact it is Rose Gold! You all know that’s the way to my heart!

Rubis Gold Tweezers

Handbag Essentials Rubis Tweezers

Every girl needs a pair of tweezers in her handbag. They come in pretty handy if any beauty meltdowns happen! These tweezers feel super luxurious! They are perfect for keeping those brows immaculate. You never know when you’ll need to grab that odd stray eyebrow that’s out of place. Or you need to tame your strip eyelash that has started lifting on the inner corners (literally my worst nightmare!!)

“Crafted in Switzerland. Rubis’ Gold Classic Slant Tweezers are made from resilient, anti-acid stainless steel that won’t rust or corrode, to guarantee the perfect pluck.”

RosehipPLUS Boost Roll On

Handbag Essentials Rosehip Oil Roll On

As a skincare addict, I was amazed and excited to discover this new idea! I have never seen a roll-on moisturiser before! The RosehipPlus Boot Roll On is the first of its kind, a moisturiser with a unique and hygienic roll-on application. This funky yet incredible product contains vitamins A, C & E and omegas 3, 6 & 9!

Benefits of Rosehip Oil:

  • Improve the appearance of stretch-marks and scars
  • Hydrates your skin and improves skin texture
  • Soothes and reduces redness. Calming irritated and damaged skin – such as rashes, burns and sunburn
  • Minimises the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Promotes skin elasticity to prevent lines and wrinkles
  • Gives skin a gorgeously healthy glow

This vitamin-packed roll-on is perfect for any small dry patches you may have and it takes up no room in your handbag!

Well, I hope you have your checklist ready to tick off your handbag essentials list! Never get caught off guard. Maybe you guys already keep some of these gems in your bag? I’d love to know which products live in your bag! If you enjoyed this post, let me know in the comments, I love chatting with you guys.
