All makeup lovers understand the importance of carrying a perfectly filled cosmetic bag with them throughout the day. A great cosmetic bag should be large enough to hold your 5 favorite makeup products, yet small enough to fit easily into your purse. Deciding which makeup items to carry around with you for touch ups and makeup emergencies can be an overwhelming process. So I decided to help you out a bit, and compiled a list of 5 makeup essentials that will save you from a cosmetics disaster!

  • Mascara, Eyeliner and Makeup Brush Combo

Of all makeup items to never leave the house without, mascara and eyeliner take first place. By highlighting your eyes with black mascara and eyeliner, the definition of your eyes will pop and appear larger. This is an essential and magnetic makeup must have.

Your Favorite Tube of Lipstick or Lip Gloss

A touch of color and shine to your lips throughout the day not only adds pizzazz to your face, but keeps you looking awake and refreshed. Do you look bland when you look in the mirror? Swipe some wow colored lipstick over your lips and watch your look come to life.

• Spray Spritz Moisturizer

Spraying a light mist of moisturizer to your face throughout the day will not only keep your foundation and powder looking fresh, but your skin will look supple and youthful. Not sure how to look wide awake in that afternoon boardroom meeting? Wipe the tiredness away with a quick moisturizer spray.

You never know what the day holds for you or your makeup, so it’s smart to keep a solid beauty warrior in your cosmetic bag in case redness or blemishes start to show. Cover up those pesky flaws with a concealer that matches your skin tone.

Makeup Sponge

Always have a makeup sponge handy to wipe away face oils as the day wears on, or blend eye shadow and/or blush back in place that might be fading away. A few wipes with a dry makeup sponge can save a glamour girl’s day.

Much like a glorious pair of high heeled shoes, your makeup bag can be your fashion and beauty best friend, going everywhere you go and saving you from unexpected and unwanted makeup mishaps!

Glamorous jewelry is loved by many. No surprise there! Gorgeous stones, gold, silver, diamonds, rhinestones, colorful beads all make for lovely pieces of jewelry to decorate your body and your outfit! Adding just the right jewelry items to the clothes that you have put together is like adding extra sparkle to the stars!
One piece of jewelry that I absolutely adore is the attached ring/bracelet ensemble. One piece of jewelry, two eye-catching pieces of pure illuminating pizzazz!
All jewelry is luscious and creative to look at, but there is something about the attached ring/bracelet piece that makes it special – elegant, vogue, elan! Noticeable and strong!
There is no denying that these delicate pieces of jewelry are stunning. But are they practical to wear? you ask!
As a true fashion diva, my answer is yes. I am wearing one right now, as I write this blog post. I have one on my right hand, and I am right handed. I write and the fabulous piece of bling moves right along with me! The one I am wearing is made from black stones, with a black ring that goes on my middle finger, then across my hand is chain and flowers made from stones, then chain that clamps around my wrist, making the bracelet. I love my unusual piece of bling.
For those of you that follow my blog, you know how much I love fashion and style, and I wear what works for me. What others think pretty much goes out the window, as I am comfortable with my style choices for myself. Yes, I do wear my attached ring/bracelet to the grocery store when I’m in the mood! I’ve even pumped my own gas with this classy little lady flowing around my wrist and across my hand! Simply grand!
Ring/Bracelet Fun Facts: These bracelets are referred to by many terms, the most known being the slave bracelet. This divine piece of jewelry is associated with several cultures and are often times worn as belly dancing or harem jewelry. They are a favored piece of jewelry by the Gothic subculture. They are a favored piece of jewelry by me too!
These ring/bracelets are also referred to as hand flowers. Quite an appropriate name, as they do add beauty and grace to your hand and wrist, much like flowers add beauty and grace to most everything!
Get your fashion fix on with the attached bracelet and ring!
Slave Bracelets may refer to:

  1. A copper bracelet used as a medium of exchange or trade.
  2. Any bracelet made of chain links.
  3. An Indian wrist bracelet joined to a ring by a chain.

Another beautiful form of the ring/bracelet is the attached toe ring/anklet, that make for exquisite foot jewelry. They add lovely ornamental decorations to your feet, and appear sensual and soft. Pampered precious gems for the feet and the eyes!
Pure bling bliss for the toe and foot or the hand and wrist!
Double the bling with an attached bracelet and ring!

Steal the scene and be the queen when your hand is adorned in the marvelous attached bracelet/ring bling!
Let’s face it, jewelry is made to be adored, decorative, to add charm and oomph to any outfit! To add bling is to add beauty! Beautiful pieces of jewelry, when looked at and admired, make you feel good! As all fashion should!
Steal the scene, you lean, mean fashion machine!
Other types of bracelets include charm bracelets, bangles, slap bracelets, beaded bracelets, link bracelets and karma bracelets. All bracelets are pretty and fashionable in their own right, but in my estimation, none can match the regal glamour of the attached ring/bracelet! A breathtaking sight!
Wrap your hand with the powerful, popular ring/bracelet. Jewelry done right!
Ring/Bracelet Fashion Warning: When you wear one of these eye appealing, unique pieces of jewelry, they are a major conversation piece. If you don’t want to get complimented, or you aren’t in a mood to talk to admiring strangers, wear a different piece of jewelry!
A way to achieve flamboyant and fabulous fashion fun? Wear an attached bracelet and ring! Ah, to wear this smashing bling makes a trendy gal’s heart sing!
