NYE Clutch Essentials!

New Year’s Eve is TONIGHT everyone – can you believe it? It’s amazing how fast each year goes by! Tonight, I will be celebrating with friends out on the town and for going out, I have assembled the perfect NYE clutch! You need to make sure that you are prepared for that fun night out with friends and today, I am going to show you exactly what you should pack in your bag for the big night!

For a night out, you don’t need to bring a lot – but there are a few things that you may want while out past midnight! Some are optional, others are completely necessary!

My NYE clutch for 2015!

iPhone (or your phone) – I know, I know – the iPhone 5S is an older model…but the main point is: Make sure you have your phone on NYE! Plain and simple it’s safe, and fun because you will want to take tons of pictures!

Blinged out Bobby Pins – Whether they are blinged out or not, I always make sure I have a couple of pins in my bag. You never know when your hair may need to be pinned back. These pins are the perfect bobby pins for a great NYE night because they add sparkle instantly!

Setting Powder – Rimmel‘s translucent setting powder has been a saving grace for me on many occasions! It minimizes the shine on your face, and is quick to apply, meaning you only need a smidge! When you are amongst a lot of people, sweat may become a problem – but this powder takes that sweaty glow right off your face, so you are looking perfect all night long!

Make up Brush – You need something to apply the setting powder with! This is really the only reason that you would pack a make up brush in your clutch! This is my favourite brush right now by e.l.f. cosmetics. It’s light, fresh looking and cleans really easily!

Matte Lipstick – I have a lipstick obsession right now which falls into two categories: nudes and mattes. This creamy matte, nude lipstick that I am loving right now is by Mabelline and is in the shade “Daringly Nude”. This has been my go-to, daily shade this past month! For the big NYE, you will need to pack your lipstick for touch ups throughout the night!

Magic Wallet – Unfortunately, this is not in stores anymore (which is why I didn’t feature it up above), however this is what I carry my necessary cards in when I go out. It’s simple, small and fits in pretty much any clutch. You will want something to carry your cards in so you don’t lose them!!

BONUS: Portable Phone Charger – This is something that I have been meaning to purchase (but always forget to). There is a great, compact, gold-coloured portable phone charger at Lord & Taylor – perfect for NYE! There is nothing worse than a dead phone (plus it’s not too safe on NYE!) Charge up with this cute gold portable charger!

My clutch is not being sold online, but the one linked up above is very similar and equally as cute!

    I love that you threw in the phone charger, because we know everybody will be on their phones on social media and taking pictures, etc! Great tip – must have!
