This post was brought to you by the makers of Puffs® facial tissues. I received compensation to write this post through the Puffs® SoftPack™ program. All opinions expressed are my own.
Let's talk about what you carry in the car or in your bag for beauty touch-ups. Since LA has serious car culture, I tend to keep a little bag of beauty right in my glove compartment, instead of using up all that space in my purse.
I have a cute little pouch with powder foundation, lipstick, a hairbrush, pain reliever, and a bit of cash. (The former is for on-the-go beauty needs, the latter is for other types of emergencies.) I don't keep anything that will easily melt. This may be the land of perfect weather, but it can get blazing hot here. I also keep a pair of flip flops in the trunk. I can't tell you how many times I've needed relief for my aching feet.
I vividly remember watching my sister do her makeup in the car when she was a teenager. And my mom - my original influencer for a strong red lip - would leave tissues blotted with bright red on the floor of our old station wagon. I don't apply makeup while driving (safety first!), but I've been known to jump in the car without my face on, as they say. So I rely on my little stash to pull myself together once I've arrived at the destination.
So I also keep tissues. But a cardboard box is too bulky for me. The Puffs Softpack tissues can cram in anywhere (like my tight glove compartment, or even under the seat) and work as anything in a pinch. I use tissues to blot my lipstick, take the edge off the oil on my face, and fix my mascara smudges.
Let's face it, I'm also a mom, and spills abound. I like that the Soft Pack is super light. I can throw it into my tote for all the things that come up daily (hourly?) that need to be cleaned, wiped, blotted. It doesn't hurt that the patterns are cute. Or that the tissues are extra soft. But the biggest bonus is that the package fits anywhere.
Do you keep an emergency beauty kit in your car or purse? What's in it?
