For my birthday this year, I was lucky enough to receive the Rebecca Minkoff Love Crossbody bag from my husband, which I had been lusting over for a while. It is very reminiscent of the Chanel Boy bag, without the crazy price tag, and I just love the beautiful chic design and the black and gold contrast. It is fairly spacious too and is plenty big enough for all my daily essentials.
Aside from the mandatory wallet, iPhone and sunglasses, there are a few beauty products that I like to carry with me for touch-ups on the go:
Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Powder (Review) I love to carry a bronzer with me just to touch-up if my makeup has faded during the day. This bronzer is my favorite at the moment as it is not too intense and can be applied anywhere without looking unnatural (perfect if you are in a dimly lit bathroom somewhere). It also contains a handy brush that is actually rather good!
Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pillowtalk (Review) The most perfect nude lipliner which I always keep in my handbag. During the summer, I have been applying this all over the lips followed by the Chanel Lip Balm.
Chanel Lip Glow Hydrating Lip Balm (Review) The has become my summer staple as is so easy to apply without a mirror and keeps the lips extremely hydrated whilst giving them a gorgeous light pink tint.
Fresh Brown Sugar Rollerball I love rollerball perfumes for their convenience, they take up no room what so ever in your bag and make it easy to refresh during the day. Brown Sugar by Fresh is an light, invigorating citrusy yet sweet scent that is not overpowering in any way, perfect for daytime.
Denman Dress Out Brush If you have fine hair like me, this brush is an essential. It is amazing for backcombing so gives me that all important volume at the roots and is great just for combing through the lengths. It is also the perfect size for a small bag or clutch on nights out!
So there are all the beauty essentials that I keep in my Rebecca Minkoff Love Crossbody, which I will probably only be able to enjoy for the next few months before the baby arrives and I have to get a huge changing bag again! I think it’s a classic though and will last me for years.
Come and join me!
