What’s In My Bag: The Eco-Conscious Skincare CEO

By Beauty Blitz / December 11, 2014
 
 

Twelve tubes of lipstick? Poetry scribbled on Sephora receipts? Keys to a Harley? You can tell a lot about a person by the contents of her bag. In our What’s in My Bag series, we ask style insiders to spill the contents of their purses in hopes of finding a few gems.

 

The Subject 

Indie Lee is the CEO and founder of Indie Lee skincare, a brand of organic skin and body products that are both stylish and sustainable.  
 

 

The Bag 

This season is filled with a lot of business travel so I opted for both style and utility with the Michael Kors Jet Set Travel Tote in Pearl Grey [1]. It has a special pocket for my Macbook Pro and even has a sleeve for my iPad. 
 

What’s Inside 

[2] Lipsticks: I’ve been known to empty out four lipsticks from my bag at any given time. I mean, I have to have choices! I love the brands ILIA and Charlotte Tilbury. I love ILIA Perfect Day.
 
[3] Sephora eyeliner (in matte brown): If I’m running out of the house with no time to get ready, I always have a backup eyeliner handy in my purse.
 
[4] Calendula Eye Balm: I keep one of these pots in each of my handbags; it’s small and can multitask like no one’s business. It moisturizes and de-puffs, cleans up my makeup mistakes, can be used as a lip balm, and doubles as my cuticle cream when my fingers are in desperate need of a manicure.
 
[5] Fountain Pens: I always have one on me. There is something romantic about writing with a fountain pen for me. I have at least a dozen different ones and rotate them from my desk to my bag.
 
[6] Moleskines: I keep a large Moleskine for work and a pocket Moleskine for personal reminders. The fun sayings on the front keep me motivated.
 
[7] Universal charger: Although it isn’t very glamorous, I carry this amazing universal charger by Swiss Mobility with me everywhere I go. It provides two full charges and has a good flashlight for finding my keys that are always lost in my bag. 
 
[8] Twistbands: I don’t blow dry my hair… I keep it in a bun while I’m at my desk and then let it down when I go out for the perfect loose waves. I love the Twistband options because they don’t crease my hair while it’s pulled back. And then add a bit of sparkle to my wrist when my hair is down.
 
[9] Compact: For checking makeup and skin throughout the day.
 

The Quirky and Unexpected 

 
[10] Little Stone Tokens: I have a frog for good luck and a dragonfly because dragonflies are my spirit animal. I’m very superstitious and have to have them with me at all times.
 
[11] Nail polish: I always bring my own 5-free options when I get my nails done at the salon (and I usually forget to take them out of my bag afterwards). Right now I am loving LVX, especially this color.
 
[12] Colored pencils: I love to draw and write in a lot of different colors to highlight thoughts. It’s part of my creative process.
