IDs, credit cards, and cash either get buried at the bottom or fall out of our bags entirely while we look for something else. Save yourself the search-and-rescue mission with a sleek and slim wallet. This one from Clare V. is minimal in construction but maximal in aesthetic — the best of both worlds.
A multipurpose compact is great for a small bag when you need a quick touch-up. This one from Too Cool For School stocks BB cream, concealer, highlighter, and blush, so all your bases are covered — literally. Topped with a puff applicator and mirror, it's got everything you need to refresh your look without ever leaving the dance floor.
Pack a few pretty clips to sweep up sweaty strands, or do a quick hair change if you're hitting up a second party. Unlike your basic bobby pins, these are meant to be seen. Lilac adds a sweet, colorful touch, while the glitter amps up your holiday sparkle.
So your lipstick has switched camps from your lips to the rim of your Champagne flute — and you don't want to switch locations from the bar to the bathroom. This mirrored lip palette from Topshop gives you not one but two options for reapplication, without needing to fight your way to the restroom. Just use your fingertip to dab on a creamy color of your choice, and pick up another glass. Cheers!
These tiny cotton swabs come pre-loaded with makeup remover, so you can wipe away migrating mascara or eyeliner without surrendering your spot in the photo booth line. All you have to do is snap the side of the swab marked with a blue line to release liquid into the other end. Then, just sweep over any areas that need a touch-up and get back to perfecting your pose.
