Getting your clutch in order is essential when it comes to long day (or even night) events. We have a few suggestions, but the main one? Don’t chuck everything in at the last minute because your boyfriend is rushing you to leave like NOW, because you are already 15 minutes late.
Trust us, you’ll regret it when you are a few champagnes in and can't find your gloss because you dumped the entire contents cosmetics case into your clutch, making it burst at the seams. The solution? Plan in advance...
To help you prepare for the upcoming major race days in November, we've put together our top race day essentials. But if you're not a Melbournian, these products are also great for slipping into your handbag or clutch for other special occasions; think long events like weddings, when beauty products are needed to help your look last!
Learn to pack smart with these tips. This is our list of what you need in your clutch next time you're all dolled up with somewhere to go!
A mini lipstick – especially one of the Savoir Faire variety, is actually mini, and will take up way less space in your clutch. Ace for touch ups throughout the day. Also, a smokey or eleaborate eye can easy veer into smear town after a few hours and is more of a night time look anyways. The moral? Choose a bold lip over a cray cray eye. Examples…
Perfume – a scent is an essential. It makes you feel feminine and how you feel can directly impact upon you look. Or how you think you look. Ladies, you know what I’m talkin’ ‘bout. Yet throwing an entire Chanel Chance bottle in your clutch just doesn’t work. Try a Perfumies Solid Perfume Stick instead.
Blotting paper – it is spring which means summer is on its way. Not only does this mean that I paid attention when they taught us the seasons in Primary School, it also means you will probably perspire at day events. Pack blotting paper to stop your natural glow becoming shiney. Using them will make you feel like a lady too. Fun!
Magic tape – This doesn’t just work on deterring nip slips. Yes. I just said ‘nip slips’. But really, no one wants to do a Janet Jackson at a day event do they? Also can be used to stick up the fallen hem on a dress, to fix a 'hatinator' (way cuter than a fascinator) whose clip or elastic band has become detached (happened to me before) or it can be used to hold pesky shoulder straps in place. Try Eylure's Body Tape. See! I didn’t even mention the word nip again! Oh wait…
Hygiene for hands – Port a loos. Need I say more? When you want your hands to actually feel clean reach for an anti-bacterial wipe. Priceless! Herban Essentials wipes do the trick.
Remember - we despatch product orders daily to ensure that your goodies get to you in time for your upcoming event. Your clutch will be pre-stocked and you'll be loving it. Thank us later!
