Every occasion calls for a different purse, so it’s important to know how to organize the items you’ll need for all of these events. Assuming you’re interested in learning more about organizing purses for easy access, we’ve listed some tips on what to carry to various occasions so that you’re sure to be ready no matter what situation arises.
Getting right into the subject, purse sizes range from a simple and basic clutch, to a tote or large purse. The latter is very important when you plan on being away from home for an extended amount of time, which requires more items. But no matter if you’re carrying a large purse or small clutch, here are some basic items to keep handy for all of the different occasions you’ll be attending throughout the year.
Keep bobby pins in your purse and car so that you can be ready for quick-fix hair emergencies. They’re small enough to be tucked away in your purse’s compartments, or even inside of your wallet.
You can find decorative bobby pins to bring with you on special occasions like proms, weddings, birthdays, work interviews and/or holiday parties.
You can also keep a few bobby pins in the car so that you’re sure to have one when you are in need.
Neutral shade of lipstick
Lipsticks are great for touching up your makeup after eating. Since most purses don’t have room for a lot of cosmetics, find a flattering shade that’s neutral or nude, and keep it in your purse so you’ve got a shade that flatters in any situation. Tuck your lipstick in a case for more protection against your lipstick melting in the humidity that accompanies summer.
You can bring more than one lipstick with you at a time by carrying a durable pouch or sunglasses holder that has a magnetic clasp to hold lipsticks, lip liner, lip balm and lip gloss. This is great for those occasions when you’ll be visiting someone all day, or when you know you’ll be away from home for extended periods of time.
Nude or light pink lip gloss
If you’re not a lipstick wearer, then you won’t need to bother carrying a lipstick because it’ll just get in your way and add clutter to your bag.
That said, lip gloss is a great alternative to lipstick because it can moisturize your lips and make them look plump. It’s great for freshening and brightening your face after eating, drinking, or talking for a long period of time.
