Not sure what else to put into your party clutch besides your credit card, some cash and a lipstick? We know it’s difficult to predict the beauty slip-ups that might happen when you’re out, so we spoke to makeup artist Larry Yeo to help get you covered.

Here’s his list and recommendations on the five things you must-have in your party clutch.

#1 PRESSED POWDER
Remember: It’s a fine line between dewy and oily! No one likes a super shiny forehead showing up in photos, so bring a compact powder with you to take away the grease.

Larry recommends Maybelline’s White Super Fresh Foundation which absorbs oil quickly.

#2 CONCEALER
You’ve got a real good base for your makeup, but sometimes it just ain’t budge-proof. Pop a concealer into your party bag for a quick fix (and just in case a zit appears, you’ll have it covered, literally.)

Use ByTerry’s Terrybly Densiliss Concealer. Larry says that it can work as a liquid foundation for touch ups, and ladies, you’ll be glad to hear that this product goes over powder just fine.

#3 TINTED LIP BALM
No lip colour will last past three glasses of champagnes, and unless if you can be bothered to line your lips and go through the whole long-lasting lip routine in the tiny powder room, a tinted lip balm is your best bet.

Try this cult favourite – Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15. Go for Plum, Passion or Ruby, if you want more than just a wash of colour. Get them in mini sizes this Christmas with this set of seven!

#4 MAKEUP CLEANSING WIPES
Oops, makeup stained your top? Rubbed your eyes and smudged your eyeliner? Unwanted lipstick stains? Don’t fret, just whip out a handy pack of these Biore Cleansing Oil Cotton Facial Sheets.

#5 COTTON BUDS
Cotton buds are a must for those annoying eye makeup smudges! Look for mini cotton bud packs that’ll fit easily into your dainty clutch, or put a few in a little resealable bag and you’re all set!

Beauty slip up? No sweat.
