As busy moms we are basically prepared for any scenario; our fabulously chic purses hide an arsenal of quick fixes for anything. When it comes to our beauty routine sometimes we need a little backup throughout they day. Ever have a change of plans and have to pop into a meeting sooner than you're ready? Decide to grab coffee with girlfriends or a hot date with your man at the end of the day and feel a little run down? I've put together a list of beauty essentials for your purse for any of life's fun unexpecteds. Prepare to be chic in any situation!  

First, find a smaller makeup bag that you can zip up all your goodies in.

THE ESSENTIALS YOU NEED:

  1. Blotting tissues to absorb oil  
  2. Clear rubber bands in case you need to pull back you hair for the gym or into a sleek pony for drinks with your hunny
  3. Lip balm with SPF  
  4. Lipsticks in a couple colors (I go with my favorite red and fun bright pink.)  
  5. Black eyeliner for a quick touchup or speedy smokey eye  
  6. Travel size dry shampoo for a boost of volume on your locks  
  7. Mascara for a lash refresher  
  8. Dental floss  

THE STUFF YOU DON'T NEED:

  1. Full-sized products
  2. Foundation
  3. Blush
  4. Eyeshadows (unless you are planning on washing your face after the gym)
  5. Also, ditch those ten-plus lipsticks. Pick two in great shades and keep it simple.
