What’s In My Clutch Bag: Beauty Essentials


Going out means bringing a few beauty essentials with you, so today I wanted to share my clutch bag favourites. I feel like it would be easy to bring lots, but you don’t want to be carrying lots around with you! So I try to keep it to more or less the minimum.

My clutch is from Katie Loxton, it is the prettiest clutch I own! It is really simple and understated, in the most beautiful, soft grey colour. It matches any outfit really, which is why I love neutral colours!


I tend to keep a concealer handy for touch ups, especially if I think my makeup will be wearing off throughout the night. The Soap And Glory Kickass Concealer is one of my favourites for taking out as it is so practical, with two shades, a mirror and a setting powder.

So handy when everything is in one place! I tend not to worry about taking a concealer brush, and just apply with my hands if I need to. Again, this product doubles up as a compact mirror, ideal for cutting down the amount you carry!


The other beauty product I feel like you need is your lipstick! This is the one you are most likely to need to touch up, so this one is an essential for me. At the moment, I have been loving matte lips as it lasts a lot longer.

This is Honeylove from Mac, paired with the Kiko Smart Lip Pencil in’700′. These two make a really pretty combination, with a light nude lip that doesn’t wash me out. I feel like Honeylove would suit most people really, especially when you use it with a darker lip liner.


I’ve included a picture of both lip products here so you can see the colours! They match well together.

Other clutch bag beauty essentials – I love my Zara Joyful Turberose perfume which is just the right size to pop in a bag. It also has such a pretty bottle, I feel like it looks a lot more expensive than it is. Another thing to remember, if you are wearing lashes, is lash glue! There is nothing worse than a lash pinging off half way through the night, haha.

What are your favourite clucth bag beauty products? Please let me know! Xx

    All those items are so necessary to carry around at all time. But that clutch is just darling! I love it- and I totally agree the neutrals are a must, you dont have to worry about matching because it will always match!
