What’s Inside Mikara’s Vanity Kit

Whether I have my Personal Stylist hat on, Wardrobe Stylist hat on or just a regular Style Enthusiast, I have a kit ! One of my clients was VERY excited about their very own Mikara’s Vanity Kit I put together for them to use whether they have something unexpected happen or not, they will be prepared for any image recovery. The client I provided this to was a male, and majority of the items are catered for women but I did simmer it down to suit a male’s lifestyle. Check out the starter items for the Mikara’s Vanity Kit:

Lotion is the first think I have to talk about! Don’t you hate it when you finish washing you hands and the soap dries your hands out?! Having Dermasil Dry Skin Treatment, 10 oz. def puts some moisture to your hands for only one BUCK! Of course, you dont have to carry this big tube around, you could get a traveler size tube to put this in.

Being hungry is one thing, but having a headache while on a date or a social gather is another — it’ll take away from your confidence and the impression you are trying to give. So having Tylenol or if you prefer Aspirin , in the kit would resolve the situation for you to get back to your regular state.

Carmex ! Who doesn’t use Carmex?! This is the lip healer of them ALL. Even though these is no color, it still plays a smooth and natural part in your lips, so no one can be turned off from your image. Always carry one with you — hell I have one in the car, each bag and a few in the bathroom. Its a lipsaver :) !

This item is def dedicated to women, but having Pantyhose, for some, is a necessity in a woman’s wardrobe. I personally am not a fan of Pantyhose, so I do not include this in my kit. A couple of previous clients stated they used Pantyhose because:
1. Warmth in cooler/cold weather
2. Leg support on improving circulation in legs
3. Prevent leg fatigue (sitting too long)
4. Hide imperfections on legs **Most popular reason**
5. Have smoother, toner looking legs.

Fellas, I did not forget about you! Having more than one socks is necessity now a days, you know know what your stepping into. Some parts of the US dont work in the field of business, where having dress socks is needed but having more than one sock is still needed overall. For the client I provided the Mikara’s Vanity KIT, I put in these Men’s Fashion Socks in the kit. Make sure if you create your own, use neutral colors that can go with more than one color.

Who here has allergies? Or just a crier? Either way, having Pocket Tissues on deck is a great of recovering from any bodily fluids that is released.

Having this bag, I feel should not just be in your Vanity Kit but in your shopping evolution. The sewing kit bag had an item I think is useful to save a lot of people time and money if they get aware of it: the measuring tape. Measuring items, and knowing you exact clothing size will trim down the “Oh I gotta have it but will it fit me” reaction. This will allow you to keep track of your measurements. Also another item in the bag it scissors, for cutting any excess thread or material. And ladies, there is a needle and thread for your to do a quick sewing fix!

Did a button just popped your shirt or pants? And need something to pull it together? Safety Pin will be your BEST FRIEND ! I don’t know how many I have laying around but these little things have been a wardrobe saver from a lot of styling jobs, outfits and other little jobs. Take a 100 or 200 Assorted Safety Pins if you can lol.

I wouldn’t love another invention as much as this one because the old fashion lint remover just didn’t do the job as good! The Lint Roller is so good to me, I wouldn’t know what to do if it decided to divorce me. An alternative lint remover method is if you have tape (any kind), just wrap the tape around your fingers (the sticky part is facing the air not your fingers) and just remove the lint off of your clothes.

There’s not one day you don’t look at yourself in the mirror. And if you had a chance to look at yourself again before you step out, pull out your Hand Mirror & Compact Set from your Vanity Kit, to make sure everything is good to go!

Wipes ….. Makeup Remover wipes or Pampers Baby wipes, I carry them both on a daily basis. The makeup wipes has a different texture that kind of gently exfoliates your skin. But carrying them them — whether you are a male or female its worth looking refreshing.

If you clothes are in tact, your hair needs to follow through too! Having hair tool (men and women) is an essential to your everyday look! Brush, or comb — whatever goes with your hair type : Bristle Brush or Paddle Brush.

Wearing heels is one thing for the ladies, but having hard bottoms shoes, I’m sure you fellas are not use to walking in those a lot (or maybe you are). Having these Memory Foam Cushion Insole will bring some ease to your discomfort in those hard bottom shoes.

Last but not least, I like to call this the makeup stain remover. Using Shaving cream or Hydrogen Peroxide on lipstick or foundation that appearance on your wardrobe. This will be an aide on your clothing to lighten the stain and not have a harsh mark once you actually wash it. Sometimes the stain will dissolve — it all depends on how much of it, is on your clothing.

And guess what? All these items can be purchased at Dollar Tree for $1.00 . I hope you guys will create your own Vanity KIT and recover from your outfit malfunction. Until next time… Thanks for reading!
