While we all know how important it is to always look your best, it’s a lot easier when you have a few beauty essentials within arm’s reach that you can grab to enhance or polish your look on the go.
I learned about the importance of keeping an emergency beauty bag the hard way.
One day when I was rushing out for a client meeting, I grabbed my go-to handbag, the one that already had a pair of heels to change into in it, and dashed to catch the train. It wasn’t until after I swiped my metro card and walked down the train platform that I realized that not only was I missing an earring that I removed earlier in the day while on a conference call, but I also hadn’t applied any make up that morning.
I thought about saying YOLO for a quick second and just going with it, but knowing better, I ran back to the office to get what I needed and ended up being late for my meeting (for the record, I HATE being late).
Now, I try to keep all of my essentials close by to avoid future close calls; I even double up on some of my favorite beauty products (lip gloss, mascara, eyeshadow, etc) and keep an extra set of stud earrings in a pouch that I can grab and throw in my bag when needed.
Do you keep an emergency beauty bag at the office?
