When organizing a big night out with our friends, most of the thought and preparation goes into getting ready before you head out into town. But, your beauty routine shouldn’t stop there! Everyone takes a bag out with them, so On Gloss is here to tell you what you should be taking in your bag for when you prepare for your next night out.
Fake eyelashes are surely a must-have for anyone getting ready for a night out, but you need to be prepared in case the worst-case scenario occurs! Carrying a spare pair of lashes in your handbag is a perfect little hack to make sure that you don’t end the night looking completely different from how you left the house. They don’t take up much room and can be placed in a small container to make sure they don’t end up loose inside of your bag. And, don’t forget your eyelash glue! Just as small, you won’t even notice the little bottle of glue floating around your bag.
There’s nothing that completes a look for a night out more than the perfect shade of lipstick. It’s one of the first things that everyone notices when you meet up with your friends, so you need to make sure it is perfect. That’s why carrying your lipstick in your bag on a night out is a must. Everything from drinking from a bottle to sipping on a straw will potentially smudge your lipstick, and it’s bound to need a touch up at some point. This might sound like a given, but you’ll be surprised how many people are left looking for a similar shade lipstick in club bathrooms! As we all know, lipsticks are often miniature at a standard size, so there’ll be plenty of room left in your bag for everything else.
We know that in almost every bar or club that you go into, you’ll find huge mirrors in the toilets. But, they could be full of others touching up their makeup or just generally dirty – they are in a club bathroom after all! So, to avoid any potential issues, carry a small, handheld mirror in your bag. This means that you can check on your makeup no matter where you are, and you’ll never have to worry about getting in anyone else’s way. You can pick up a tiny handheld mirror that won’t take up much room in your bag at all. Some makeup, eyeshadow palettes, for example, come with a mirror of their own. So, you could even bring a ‘two in one’ any carry a mirror with some touch-up makeup as well.
If you don’t know about setting spray, then it is time to find out! Setting spray is the perfect way to finish off your makeup routine. Popularly sold in every makeup store, setting spray comes in a small bottle with a spray nozzle on top. It should be used once you have applied all of your makeup, spraying it over the area you’ve applied makeup. The setting spray will then ensure that all your makeup looks perfect throughout the night, no matter what happens. It’ll also add an extra glow to your face as well that will last throughout the night. Carrying that small bottle in your bag is a sure-fire way to ensure that any makeup disasters can be avoided.
There’s nothing better than getting a manicure or pedicure before you head on a night out. But what is something goes wrong while you are enjoying yourself and you realize that you have snapped or chipped one of your fresh nails? That’s why a miniature manicure block comes in handy. Just like any nail file that you would normally use at home, the manicure block can be used to file down your manicured nails so any chips won’t even be noticed. Rather than a nail file, a block is a bit more sturdy so you don’t have to worry about it snapping in your bag. There’s also more area on the block to file down your nail, so it won’t take half as long as with a typical nail file.
A pack of tissues might sound like a weird one after everything else we have mentioned on this list, but they could come in just as crucial. That’s because they can be used for literally anything. Accidentally spill a drink, or have a drink spilled on you? Tissues will be perfect! Noticed a small smudge on your makeup? Tissues are perfect! Notice someone tearing up and don’t want them to ruin their makeup? Once again, tissues are perfect! I can guarantee that once you head out with a pack of tissues, you’ll use them much more than expected and start to wonder how you ever lasted without them as an essential item.
This might not be the most glamorous note to end on, but a small bottle of body spray is another beauty essentials that you should have on you at all times. It’s no secret that at the end of a
long night out, people aren’t feeling (or smell!) as good as they were at the start of the night. That’s why keeping a handy bottle of your favorite body spray in your bag can keep you feeling fresh at any point!
