As women we often fill our bags to bursting with cosmetics and products, however we don’t really need it all! It really is better to select a few keys pieces and if you take time in the morning to apply your make-up correctly, you shouldn’t have to top up throughout the day.

However, I do like to carry a few items with me as they are my ultimate favourites and can instantly update and refresh my look. Remember to keep the items that you carry with you clean, there is nothing worse than transferring the bacteria from your handbag directly on to your skin and lips.

Below are my handbag must haves and why I can’t live without them. You may just find yourself adding them to you handbag too!
