5 items that definitely belong in your bag, and find out why they're essential to keep.

Moisturizer/Lotion: To keep your skin hydrated, and provide a smooth palette on which to create your makeup magic, you need to have a good moisturizer handy and use it every day. Applying a layer of makeup over dry, parched skin is like trying to paint the surface of a cracked desert floor.

Mascara: Thick, long eyelashes are a beauty must. Some women wear fake eyelashes to achieve a sultry, dramatic look. Most women go with the lower-maintenance approach: a layer of mascara. Mascara can lengthen, thicken and separate lashes, depending on which one you use and how you apply it.

Lipstick/Lip Gloss: No matter your skin tone or style, chances are you wear something on your lips. Polished lips can complete an overall makeup look or stand on their own as attention-grabbers.

Mini Perfume: Mini perfumes are excellent for handbags

Powder Compact with mirror: If you’re always on the go, it’s great to keep a little compact in your bag for touch-ups throughout the day. The mirror comes in really handy for other purposes such as applying lipstick or checking if you’ve got food in your teeth (very important!).
