Your Holiday Emergency Kit: Be Party-Ready in a Flash

The holidays are jam-packed with opportunities to socialize, from festivities with friends, office celebrations, happy hours, and dinners with clients or colleagues. It’d be nice if you could spend an hour getting prepped for every weekday soiree, but sometimes you don’t know about an event until the last minute. With this holiday emergency kit you are always ready for wherever the night takes you.


Sparkling Cosmetic Bag



Tuck your emergency supplies inside a dazzling cosmetic bag, like this crackle mirrored case from 3.1 Phillip Lim. Leave your bulky day bag behind, this roomy cosmetic case doubles as a chic clutch.


Makeup for Instant Glam



Whether you need to start from scratch or just glam-ify your existing look, the BUXOM Passport Collection features four pigmented eye shadows and mascara to create a sexy smokiness. Plus, peach gloss and blush will add a fresh glow to your look — even the morning after. This patent leather zip-up palette will save face this holiday season.


The Perfect Red Lipstick



There’s no better time of year to don a bold pout. Apply a stunning red lipstick and you’ll instantly feel more dressed-up. The forumula of DuWop’s Private Red Lipstick adapts to your individual coloring, so it complements every skin tone.


Shimmering Dangle Earrings



Nothing glitzes up an everyday outfit like a single sparkling accessory. With both gold and silver tones, these Fenton earrings will jive with all of your fave holiday looks. They're as very merry as they are very versatile.


Foldable Flats



Even the most experienced heel-wearer sometimes needs a break. If you plan on dancing all night or indulging in the extra-strength eggnog, bring a pair of foldable emergency flats and your feet will thank you.


Hairdo Help



You know that girl who can twirl her hair around a pencil and somehow end up with a fantastic updo? Yeah, we hate her too. But with Bumble & bumble’s limited-edition Pin Tin, you can get an awesome updo in a snap. The tin includes fifty matte-white styling pins along with instructions for creating four easy-but-classic styles that are perfect for any occasion.


Mini Wallet



Changing wallets every time you switch bags is a drag. Instead try this stylish Anya Hindmarch wallet. At three inches high and four wide, it'll fit in even your tiniest clutch. Plus, with its on-trend emerald hue, this mini wallet is as functional as it is festive.


Rub Relief



Whether mixing champagne with gin turned out to be a terrible idea, or you just underestimated the height of your heels, keep a solution on hand. Dr. Scholl’s Rub Relief Strips will have you back in shape in a snap. 


A Festive Fragrance



Why lug an entire bottle (or a highly spillable sample) of perfume when you can have a fragrance at your fingertips? Inside this schmancy cocktail ring hides the solid version of Oscar de la Renta’s Esprit d’Oscar eau de parfum, a sophisticated blend of lemon, bergamot, jasmine, and tuberose.


On-the-Fly Breath Fresheners



Gum and mints are well and good, but they don’t help much when the spinach puffs get caught in your teeth. Keep a Colgate Wisp or two in your bag so you can freshen up before or after a big meal.
