5 clutch-friendly quick fixes

by Martha Adams

No matter how much time and effort you put into getting your make-up just right for a night out, it seems impossible to avoid the raccoon eyes, greaseball t-zone or faded lippy. I don't know about you but I don't want to lug around a full make-up bag when I'm out so here is a list of small clutch-friendly quick fixes.

Make-up remover pens: These are small sponge tip pens that contain make-up remover. You simply run it over any eyeliner or lipstick smudges and then wipe away with a tissue or cotton bud. Product picks: Almay Oil-Free Makeup Eraser Sticks and J ane Iredale Mineral Makeup Dot the i .

Concealer: Concealers are usually small enough to fit easily in a clutch and you can use it to touch up under your eyes or any spots that show through. Product picks: Mineral Fusion Concealer, Savoir Faire Cosmetics Concealer pack and Physicians Formula Gentle Cover Concealer Stick .

Pencil eyeliners: To touch up eyeliner as it fades which is important for flash photos. Product picks: La Biosthetique Belavance Automatic Pencil for Eyes , MeMeMe Eye line pencil and Natural Compatibles Kohl Pencil .

Lip brush: If you don't want to carry your lipstick, you can get little lip brushes that come with lids. You can just load up some of your lipstick on it before you had out and use that to touch up throughout the night. Product picks: manicare mini retractable lip brush , Aveda Environmental retractable lip brush and ARTISTE retractable lip brush .

Blotting sheets: Oil and shine definitely shows in photos! Keep it at bay with some blotting sheets that will remove excess shine without removing your make-up or having to cake more on.
