Nighttime Necessities

When I’m getting ready to go out for the night, I’m usually tripping over my heels as I frantically attempt to pack my clutch with my beauty essentials. Usually, my clutch isn’t big enough to hold everything I think I’m going to need for the night, which either leaves me forgetting the obvious (cash or my metro card) or leaving behind a lip gloss that I wish I had for later to reapply.

So consider this a Friday night check list (for you and me). First off, time to invest in a bigger clutch. I’m loving this Linea Pelle Dylan Envelope clutch, the perfect size that will fit all your necessities. No girl should leave home without a liner (I love Rimmel London’s Soft Kohl pencil and how easy it glides on) and something for your lips (my current obsession, NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils because they are super easy to apply and the colors are gorg). Blotting papers and concealer for quick clean-ups in between dance parties, a fab purse fragrance for a quick spritz and Benefit’s lash lovelies… just because.

Cheers to the freakin’ weekend…
