  • 7 Beauty Retouch Essentials That Fit in a Small Party Bag
  • The party season is upon us and that means dressing up and putting your dancing shoes on. It also usually means teeny tiny bags! But, worry not, you can still bring the beauty essentials if you pack your purse smart. Here are 7 clutch products you can keep with you to help you look beautiful all night!

    Touch of color 
    Lipstick tends to be the first to fade. After all, you’re eating, drinking, and talking. Choose a vibrant lip color and freshen it up as needed to keep you looking fab.

    Try Revlon Matte HD Lipcolor, which is both lipstick and gloss, P525

    Tame those brows 
    Eyebrows gone astray? Tame them to submission with the perfect eyebrow mascara. 

    Try Maybelline Fashion Brow Coloring Mascara, which features a “ball brush” comb that neatens and defines brows, P395

    The bottom line 
    No need to bring all your shadows and creams because sexy smudged color is in! Keep the look neat by keeping your eyeliner crisp and clean. 

    Try Happy Skin Eye Am Here To Stay Precision Liquid Eyeliner, which is waterproof, P599

    Raise the volume 
    With the humidity in the Philippines, it’s easy for hair to fall flat after a few hours out. Retain your sexy volume by spraying in some dry shampoo. 


    Try Klorane Oat Milk Dry Shampoo, which comes in the travel size of 50mL, P700 

    Eyes wide open 
    You can keep from looking sleepy or tired by making sure your mascara is on fleek. Curled and coated lashes open up your eyes beautifully!

    Feeling cheeky 
    A pop of color on your cheeks refreshes you and keeps you glowing. Opt for a cream based color so you can use it on your lips, too! 

    Try Bobbi Brown Baby Pot Rouge, one of its bestselling cream color for lips and cheeks, P1,500

    Loose ends 
    You leave the house with your tresses in gorgeous loose curls, but sometimes you need to put your hair up! Ditch the regular brown elastic on your wrist for something cute and useful. A hair tie that can double as a bracelet! 


    Try Goody Doublewear Ponytail Holder/Bracelet P499
