Like most things in my life I like to keep my handbags well organised. This means I don’t have lots of little bits ‘n’ shits floating around but instead put everything in the right pouch or compartment. I switch up the pouches but right now I’m loving this “Look Pretty Play Dirty” one I picked up in Superdrug a few months back.
I have pretty oily skin, which is getting better with age, but I still need to always have a mattifying powder with me wherever I go. For the past year I’ve been loyal to this Clinique Stay Matte Sheer Pressed Powder, which comes in this gorgeous pale green marble compact with a huge mirror. My favourite brush to apply this is from the rose gold Zoeva collection, 106 Powder. It’s just the right size to powder my little face, is so soft and, of course, abso-freaking-lutely gorgeous.
I always carry a pen with me, as I’m a fervent note taker and right now I am carrying this little Mont Blanc beaut. I never knew a pen could be fucking beautiful but this is a next level writing tool. It’s so lovely to look at with a cute little star on the top, writes nicely and has my name engraved.
You’ll never find me without handcream as my hands are always super dry. I tend to pick up these bag sized creams from The Body Shop and the Wild Argan Oil is my fave. I’m not much of a lipstick wearer. As well as dry hands I also have dry lips and tend to bite them so most lipsticks just look shit, but this one is quite sheer and moisturising. It’s called “Lovely” by No7.
As well as these well presented items, I also keep a packet of tissues, a strip of painkillers, a strip of Imodium and a tube of hydrocortisone but you know, they don’t look pretty in pictures.
