We cannot keep all our beauty and makeup essentials in our bags. That would make our bags just too heavy. That is why it is a smart move to keep some essentials which you almost always need. Most of us just have tissue papers in our cars but this just means we aren’t utilizing our cars fully. Buy a small, heat resistant box, and put some makeup essentials in it. You just can’t keep it lying around because you don’t want sunlight messing with your products.

The number of times we forget to apply a sunblock is too damn high. Sunblock is not something you are allowed to forget. That is why it is a good idea to keep a travel size sunblock in your car. A good idea is to buy a translucent powder with a high SPF. You can apply it over your makeup easily, so in a way, it is better than your conventional sunblock. You can also keep a traditional sunblock to apply on your legs neck, and arms. Sunblock is particularly important if you live in a sunny climate and do not want to get tanned.
