If you spend your day at your desk, you’ll agree that having a secret stash of beauty products is essential. From last minute meetings to after work drinks, the modern woman needs the ability to look fabulous and freshen up in an instant. So we support your decision to dump out that desk drawer and make it your beauty zone. What should you keep stashed in your desk? Here are the experts’ ideas.
Marie Claire provides an extensive list that includes almost everything you’ll need for head to toe maintenance.
- Lip Gloss
- Nail Clippers
- Cling/Anti-Static Spray
- Lint Roller
- Desk Mirror
- Nail Polish
- Hand Sanitizer
- Floss Picks
We completely agree, but we’d also suggest you keep a stash of Pony Tail Holders and/or Bobbi Pins if you have long hair or are growing out your bangs, a travel sized deodorant, and a few makeup essentials for mid-day touch ups. If you’re the type that likes going straight from work to cocktail hour or meeting up with friends for dinner, you may want more tools at your disposal. We like our Alicia Silverstone Brush & Bag Set, the 6 Piece Brush Set, or the new Touch Up Set. Don’t need that many brushes? Just stash the multi-purpose Retractable Kabuki Brush in your drawer – its cover protects the bristles from miscellaneous office junk, so your brush stays nice, longer.
Of course if you amass lots of beauty tools and fast fix items at work, you’ll need a place to stash them. The Alicia Silverstone Train Case is perfect for the big beauty stash while the Pencil Case or Cosmetic Bag, also by Alicia, are great for smaller selections.
