Whether you’re slaving away on your 200-page dissertation, or typing up a storm in the office, you’re probably spending a significant portion of your day at your desk. Save yourself from any beauty emergencies and keep everything looking fresh by stashing a few beauty essentials in your draws – and your future self will thank you for it later.

1. The Body Shop Tea Tree Blotting Tissues

This is essential for anybody prone to that unsightly shine that always seems to pop up at around lunch time. I love these Body Shop ones especially since they have that extra Tea Tree goodness. Gently pat on trouble spots to absorb excess oil while removing minimal makeup.

2. Benefit Cosmetics High Brow Highlighter

A little highlighter can go a long way. Perfect for that midday pick-me-up, when you’re feeling a bit blah from a stressful morning. Apply under the brows, in the inner corner of the eyes, and on the high points of the face to instantly brighten and lift your features (and your mood).

3. L’Occitane Shea Whipped Hand Cream

They do so much for us during the day, give your hands some loving with this delicious L’Occitane hand cream. It also works great as a moisturiser for any dry spots on the face or body.

4. Bobbi Brown Face Touch-Up Palette

This little palette has a bit of everything for whatever skin situation you may be in. The corrector brightens, the concealer evens out skin tone, the foundation covers any redness, and the pressed powder finishes it all off. It is a definite life saver for when your skin decides to have a midday freak out.

5. Batiste Dry Shampoo

This is a cult favourite and necessary in any beauty collection. Keep a second (mini) can of this lifesaver at your desk to spruce up your hair and give it some life throughout the day. Also, it is perfect for changing up your hairstyle at the end of the day for those after-work drinks.
