Put these items in a small makeup bag in your purse so you always have them handy.If you have to pull an unexpected all nighter you will at least have the essential supplies.

* Clear lip gloss or chap stick for soft kissable lips
* Dental floss and a toothpick. There's nothing more embarrassing than meeting the man of your dreams with spinach between your teeth!
* Mini mouth wash. Garlic or coffee breath can be rinsed away before that job interview.
* Perfume sample - so you can freshen up any time. Remember scent is the strongest memory trigger!
* Mini hairspray. Never have a bad hair day!
* Visine and coverup stick - not only gets the red out of tired eyes but can also tone down an angry red blemish enough to conceal it with a dab of coverup.
* Kleenex - great for blotting lips and face to remove that four o'clock shine. Also you never know when allergies may hit.
* Mini-lotion for those dry hands or flaky legs.
* Clear nail polish to fix any runs or snags you may get in your hose. (It's a good idea to keep an extra pair of hose in your car, just in case)
* Travel size toothbrush and paste.
* Mini sewing kit with safety pins. Be prepared for that loose button or a snag on your skirt!
* Tampon or mini pad - just in case.
* Bronzing powder. It can be used as blush or eyeshadow and even under clear gloss on your lips.
Mascara - in the event of a tear jerker movie.
* Mini deodorant. Keep dry and fresh in any crisis.
