No matter how carefully you style your hair and how much setting spray you apply over your makeup, you won’t look quite as fresh on your lunch break as you did when you left the house hours before. Your normal everyday activities naturally take a toll on your appearance, often leaving you with dull hair, oily skin, and patchy makeup by late afternoon.
Arming yourself with a few beauty essentials while on the go can help you refresh your appearance throughout the day to stave off that inevitable worse-for-the-wear look for as long as possible. Toss these five travel-friendly beauty essentials into your purse before you leave the house to have everything you need to look fresh all day long.
