Handbag Makeup Essentials with MyBag

Handbag Makeup Essentials with MyBag

As Spring approaches and we start to update our beauty and fashion routines, investing in a new season handbag feels like the ultimate indulgence. The other night our bag wishlist got a little longer as we paired up with MyBag for a preview of their Spring Summer 2016 range with influential Manchester bloggers. We spent the evening looking at all the beautiful new bags whilst chatting all about our handbag makeup essentials.

There’s little we enjoy more than chatting over our fashion and beauty favourites with some of our favourite bloggers, especially when there’s food, cocktails and hair styling stations in tow. With new-in designer accessories from brands like Aspinal of London, The Cambridge Satchel Company, Grafea, Loeffler Randall, Lulu Guinness, Olivia Burton and Karl Lagerfield, our lust list is getting longer and longer.

Oh, but we weren’t just there to have fun – we made sure each attendee went away with a selection of our handbag makeup essentials in their goody bag. If you fancy a nosey into what we – and some of our favourite bloggers – are packing in our handbags right now, we’ve got you covered.

    Real Techniques Mini Brush Set Trio

    We’re a sucker for a pretty makeup brush but when they’re as functional as they are beautiful, it really is the perfect combination. We can’t stop using the Real Techniques Bold Metals Brush collection, so to celebrate we gave each of our bloggers one to pop in their handbags too. If you fancy something a little more travel friendly, the Real Techniques Mini Brush Set Trio has three essential brushes ready to pop in your bag.

    Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm

    A lip is always a handbag essential; maintaining soft lips is important to us! The Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm comes in a beautiful Natural Rose shade, which ties in all the qualities of a moisturising lip balm with the colouring of our favourite nude lipstick. Two-in-one products are especially handy for retaining precious handbag space.

    Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist

    Not only does the Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist help to refresh us when we’re sitting under the air conditioning at work, it also helps to restore the skin’s healthy balance. One of our favourite handbag beauty hacks is to spritz this lightly on your face after applying a fresh layer of face powder at lunch time. It helps to make your makeup top up look more natural and ‘glowy’ throughout the day.

    Wet Brush Classic

    To stop flyaway hairs, we always carry a hair brush in our bags. This Wet Brush Classic is definitely an essential, helping us to tame our tresses throughout the day. Ideal for a touch-up before taking blogger photos! Plus, the Wet Brush collection comes in a range of different colours, meaning there’s always one to match our handbag.

    Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer

    Speaking of touching up makeup, we always keep a concealer handy and the Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer is our current handbag essential. Creamy, lightweight and brightening, this works well for both highlighting under our eyes and covering up any blemishes on the go.

    Korres Vanilla, Freesia & Lychee EDT

    No one likes to take their most expensive perfume off their dressing table, so for a fragrance refresh we like to carry a smaller bottle in our handbags. The Korres Vanilla, Freesia & Lychee EDT is a favourite at the moment. With notes of South African freesia and ripened lychee, this is a memorable scent which will keep you (and your handbag) smelling wonderful all day.

Beauty is my absolute passion and even having worked in the Beauty Industry for six years, I still love to spend my spare time trying out new discoveries. From red lipsticks to electrical facial devices, I'm always willing to trial the next best beauty product. When I'm not at work I try to explore the USA, so I'm always on the hunt for mini beauty samples to pop in my travel bag for my next flight to NYC.
