New Year’s Eve is the one night a year I can guarantee you’ll all be out and about. As women, we obviously keep more on our person than men do (hello, why else do we need so many different bags and clutches?), but tonight, is a bit different.

Be sure to pack a clutch before you head out to whatever extravaganza you have on your agenda. Besides the basics, like cash, credit cards, and keys, here a few things you should be sure to pack this New Year’s Eve:

Your Lip Color

Be sure to bring out the lip color that you’ll be wearing tonight. Whether it’s a lipstick or a gloss, (even a lip balm), be sure to bring it. You’ll be sipping on something all night, and reapplying your lip color is a necessity.

A Perfume Rollerball

Don’t leave the house without a perfume roller ball pen this New Year’s Eve. No one wants to ring in the New Year with someone who smells less than favorable.

Travel Hand Cream/Sanitizer

Especially if you’re going out in New York City. Hand Sanitizer is a must to make sure that you’re clean and germ free. Moisturizer is necessary to make sure your hands don’t dry out from the combination of alcohol (the sanitizer) and the cold.

Blotting Papers

You’ll be photographed from every angle tonight (thank you Instagram), and no one wants to ring in the New Year with a shiny face.

Compact Mirror

Because if you’re anything like me, you’re compulsively checking to see if you look like you’ve been through the ringer or not.

What else are you bringing out with you this New Year’s Eve?
