How to Fit Your Entire Makeup Routine in Your Purse

  • Colorscience Mineral Powder Brush

    Fill the well of this mini-brush with Colorscience SPF Mineral Powder, and voila! No more spills at the bottom of your bag. The brush head is the same size as a regular powder brush, but with a portable body and a cap for safekeeping.

  • Tweezerman Zip File

    Put a regular nail file or emery board in a purse, and eventually it becomes a dull, dirty stick. This protected mini file slides out as far as you want, ensuring you’ll always have a fresh file when you need it.

  • Makeup Brushes

    Keep this set of the four most popular brushes and you’ll be prepared to apply any eye-or-cheek color to perfection. The travel brush case keeps the set organized, not to mention free from lint and dirt.

  • Sephora Travel Brush

    Prone to tangles? This sleek compact opens to reveal a brush and a mirror. Just press the bottom of the compact to pop out the bristles, and press the bristles to return them to closed. Genius!

  • eos Smooth Sphere lip balm

    Get rid of that ancient, beat-up tube of Chapstick. This adorable balm comes in an indestructible sphere that screws closed to keep gunk out, plus the shape makes it fun to use.

  • Borghese Travel Size Il Bacio Perfume

    Just admit it—you’re never going to actually distill your perfume into a tiny atomizer. It’s okay; why bother when you can just grab a portable travel spray small enough to throw into your purse?

  • Dr. T's Supergoop Sunscreen Day Cream

    Sometimes you find yourself in need of sunscreen ASAP. Don’t carry around a heavy, bulky bottle, instead tuck travel-sized day cream sunscreen in your bag so that when you’re caught outside in need of protection, you’re good to go.

  • Prescriptives's U-Pick Refillable Compact

    Single eyeshadow pans are a great way to build up a custom collection; not so great for traveling. But Prescriptives's refillable compact lets you pop shadows in and out with ease, so you only ever have to take the exact shadows you need.

  • Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss

    Focus on your lips and cheeks to get a flush of color in a hurry. Carry Revlon's swipable color in subtle or bright hues.

  • Benefit Real Mascara Mini

    This miniature version of the iconic Real Mascara packs all the lash-lifting power of the regular size.

  • Smashbox Limitless Eyeliner

    Carrying a pencil sharpener in your purse only leads to a messy disaster. Avoid it while keeping your eyes bright by carrying a liner with a built-in sharpener. Smashbox Limitless Eyeliner has a one right in the cap, plus it’s silky-smooth and glides on in a breeze.

  • NARS Mini Nail Polish

    A teensy bottle of polish is perfect for touching up chips and wear.

  • Too Faced Glamour to Go II Palette

    If you’re the type who simply can’t live without options, a do-it-all palette is your best bet. This one packs eight shadows, four lip glosses, and an all-purpose blush into one tiny, lightweight package.
