Big Primpin': What To Stash In Your NYE Clutch

If you're planning to hit the town this NYE, you've got some tough choices to make. You obviously want to look amazing, but you also don't want to tote around a giant bag full of beauty essentials. Yet unfortunately, it's not always possible to guarantee your hair and makeup will stay looking fly all night long — which necessitates the lugging-along of said beauty essentials and creates the party version of a Catch-22. Ugh.
The good news is that it is possible to stash an adequate get-pretty stash in your itty bitty party bag. Plenty of beauty brands have debuted portable primpers, and many products have on-the-go or multi-purpose functionality, meaning no more staring at all of your stuff and having to make a Sophie's Choice of what you need and what you can actually fit in there.
Here, we've matched up nine dazzling party bags with the beauty quick fixes you might need for an epic night on the town. From a teeny flat iron (for reals!) to a quick-fix for garlic-crostini breath, we've got all of your possible primping problems covered, from your head to your dance-fatigued feet.
