We all try to be as prepared as we can be in our everyday lives. From essentials that help us move and live daily to those that we use only for special cases, it’s best to have things we can rely on. Of course, we’re no strangers to beauty emergencies. As much as we think we’re prepared for everything, some things just happen. But don’t panic! More often than not, a beauty emergency needs only a quick fix. Ahead, the must-carry items in your beauty fix-it kit.

For a pesky pimple 

Have you ever had a special event to go to and you get a pimple that’s seeking everyone’s attention on the morning of the big day? What a nightmare! It’s not a helpless situation, though. All you need is a simple remedy for that pesky spot, like the ZNIQUE Acne Serum. It’s an all-in-one solution that cleans and treats acne on all skin types. Plus, it’s made with a combination of natural ingredients that target the cause of the pimple, so it provides not only relief to inflammation but also prevents the growth of acne-causing bacteria.

For a bad hair day 

We’ve all had bad hair days, and the most common way we address it is by putting our hair up in a bun or a ponytail. But we say there’s another way to combat hair woes. Try a texturising hairspray or dry shampoo like the Ouai Wave Spray. Put the waviness and frizziness your hair already has and turn your mane into a glorious version of the bed head. Simply mist your hair with the spray, tousle it and you’re good to go.

For a quick refresher after a long day 

You’ve already had a long day at work or at school, but you’re still meeting friends after. You can’t help but feel a lack of energy. Don’t fret! A simple pick-me-up in the form of a fun fragrance is just what you need to revive your energy — not to mention make you smelling real good. Try Kate Spade’s Live Colorfully for something fresh.

For a makeup blunder 

Sometimes, you’re just not in the right zone for a full face of makeup. If you happen to be having a bad makeup day, a few misting spritzes are all you need. Use a lightweight mist that not only helps seal and finish the makeup but also gives the skin a soothing and refreshing effect. Give the MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ a try.

For chipped nails 

Don’t you just hate it when your nail chips off? Try this remedy at home. Cut a tea bag to the shape of your nail. Apply a base coat, and while it’s still wet, put the cut tea bag on top like a nail sticker. Cut off any excess and apply another layer of clear nail polish, like the Orly Beauty Clear.
