Clutch Essentials

by - January 07, 2014

I don't really like going out with my huge handbag, I usually like carrying a clutch around. So I made a list of things that I wanted to always have with me in my clutch, and though of sharing it with you!
Clutch essentials, jimmy choo clutch, India clutch essentials, mascara, Indian girl clutch essentials
1. The lipstick you are wearing
You need to have the lipstick that you are wearing so that you can re-apply it when needed. A person like me, who doesn't wear lipstick, can have a lip balm instead, because no one likes chapped lips!

2. Your phone
Confession: I can't live without my phone. And if you are like me, you can't either! 

3. Mascara
Okay, confession, I don't own mascara. But for the beauties who own (and use) mascara, I think it's a clutch-essential! Literally every girl I know carries mascara with her!

4. A small comb
Whenever I leave my hair open, they inevitably tangle and look like I haven't combed them for days! So I like to carry a small comb with me wherever I go. Try keeping a comb in your clutch and come back and thank later!

5. Breath freshener
I hate to be the one to tell you this, but, sometimes, your breath can smell. A smelly breath isn't sexy if you are about to lean in into your hottie! Tip: If your date's breath smells you can offer them some mint without hurting their feelings. No one (in their right mind) says no to mint!

6. Compact mirror 
Carry a compact mirror with you so that you can enjoy how hot you look. It also helps to check if something is stuck on your after you've eaten something, because sometimes your friends won't tell you that. 

What all do you normally keep in your clutch? Leave comments.
