Have you ever wondered what celebs typically keep in their expensive designer bags? More often than not, there’s hair, skin and makeup staples that barely cost more than lunch. We’re talking $3 lip balm, $12 face mist and even disposable spoolie brushes. But sometimes, there are higher-end finds that also deliver the type of results you can’t help but rave about. Celebrity on-the-go beauty stashes usually check both boxes.
