The work Christmas party has to be one of my favourite times of the year. I love getting ready with all of my work friends, doing each-other’s hair and makeup, having a fabulous time with everyone and of course it means that Christmas is close! With my Christmas party being today, I thought I would share with you what I’m taking with me in my clutch bag.
Firstly, let’s talk about my bag. This year, I’m taking my Louis Vuitton Alma BB, I love this bag as it goes with any outfit, it’s small enough to carry around and also fits a lot in it.
Moving onto what’s inside… obviously, I’m going to be taking my lipstick of the evening with me and this year, I’ve opted for the Gigi Hadid x Maybelline lipstick in the shade ‘Erin’. I love this lipstick and think it complements my skin tone perfectly. Although it won’t necessarily last all night long, it is super easy to reapply so I don’t mind too much.
Sticking with the theme of lip products, I also like to take a lip balm with me everywhere just in case! My current favourite is the Glossier Balm Dotcom as it keeps my lips hydrated and is really easy to apply.
The next item inside my bag is my bareMinerals powder and Real Techniques multi-task brush. Like most, I tend to look a little shiny as the night goes on, so I like to carry around a powder with me to touch up throughout the night.
When at an event, there’s always a chance that the venue will be a little warm or that you’ll be dancing and there’s nothing worse than being paranoid of smelling when you’re out with colleagues. So in my bag, I like to also pop a travel sized body mist in my bag just for emergencies! The one I’m currently loving is the PINK fresh and clean body mist as it smells lovely, and lasts on the skin.
Aside from the obvious, keys, money, ID and phone, that’s all I’ll be taking with me to this year’s party.
