Have you ever wondered what you should be bringing in your handbags? Or having difficulty editing your essentials down to the bare minimum? You’re not alone, that happens to us too. With Handbag Edits, we show you what you can throw into different bags of different sizes. We also have celebrities and personalities share their bag must-haves and current favorites.
We’re making our way through December and I’m sure you have some Christmas dinners planned already. If you’re going to a family gathering or a night out with friends, a clutch will be the best companion. The Jimmy Choo Lockett Minaudiere clutch is made of acrylic and comes in a sparkly silver color. It also has gold hardware, including a gold strap. If you’re thinking of copping this bag, here are some compact and multi-use things you can pack in it.
Sephora Collection Microsmooth Sculpting Palette
To save space in your clutch, carry a multi-use makeup palette. This one from Sephora has three pigments that can act as highlight, blush, and contour. You can also try using the pink shade as a light eyeshadow. Available on Sephora PH.
Guerlain Limited Edition Rouge G Lipstick
Finish off any makeup look with this bold lipstick shade. Once you swipe this on your lips, you will have a plump and hydrated pout. The packaging of this lipstick also comes with a built-in mirror, perfect for touchups. Available at Rustan’s The Beauty Source, Glorietta 4.
Monster Closet Houndstooth Tarp Wallet
Carry only the essentials in this small pouch. Here, you can keep cash, cards, small hair accessories, and some mints. Make sure all your smaller items are organized since a clutch doesn’t have that much space or compartments. Available on Miz+Moxie.
Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70K Digital Camera
If you want to capture the night on a camera and not on your phone, consider an ultra-thin option like this one from Panasonic. This will fit perfectly in your bag and take high-quality photos. It also has built-in wi-fi so you can easily transfer pictures to your phone or control camera features using an app. Available at Abensons, Robinsons Galleria.
Lush Lord of Misrule Solid Perfume
Take notes from our fragrance tricks and add a tin of solid perfume to your pouch. This compact product has an earthy aroma of patchouli oil and a sweet scent of vanilla. Just like a balm, warm the perfume with your fingers and apply this on your neck and behind your ears. Available online.
