The Ki & Ka of a working gal’s beauty kit

In case—like me—you’re wondering about this oddly named film, Ki & Ka, it has nothing to do with the Kapoor surname both actors share. Ki is the end of lad-ki and Ka is the end of lad-ka…hmmm! So apparently the movie is all about love sans gender discrimination. The size XXL hero Arjun Kapoor is spotted romancing the once-upon-a-time size zero diva Kareena Kapoor Khan.  The film also features another classy jodi, Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan. The story is about two people with distinct ideologies; and touches on the issue of gender equality. Arjun wants to be the perfect house husband while Kareena is an ambitious, career oriented girl.
Inspired by women who toil all day at the office like Kareena, we decided to draw up a list of thing every working gal needs in her office kit. Tight deadlines, angry bosses and impatient co-workers can make an eight hour workday feel like an 18 hour burnout. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t look and feel as fresh as a daisy all day, everyday. And you will, with these office-friendly makeup and hair essentials.
Lip and Cheek Stain
For those mornings when you don't have five minutes to spare, simply dab a bit of color onto your lips and the apples of your cheeks for an instant, put-together look!
Oil-Absorbing Powder
Stuffy, warm office environments sometimes cause your makeup to take a turn for the worse. Keep a few sheets handy to banish shine or oiliness half way through the day.
Minty Breath
Nothing's more off putting than stale breath. Keep some mint flavored, sugar-free gum handy. You never know when last-minute meetings will pop up on your calendar, and if people can smell your lunch … well, let's just say it's better that you have these on hand.
Dry Shampoo 
If your luscious locks end up falling flat midday, give your roots a refreshing pick me up. The perfect formula for voluminous hair that looks squeaky clean, even if it isn't!
Hand Cream 
You're probably going to run through this stuff quicker than you think. Plus, you'll have the softest, nicest smelling hands in the office!
Lash Curler 
Oh, what a difference curled lashes can make. Give 'em a quick clamp for instantly bigger and brighter eyes. No one will know you got zero sleep last night!
Hair Ties   
Some days a gal just has to get her hair out of her face. Buckle down for that presentation your client asked for at 5 p.m. and put your hair up in a chic, high pony!
Facial Mist 
Give yourself (and your skin) a "wake up call"! Chock-full of vitamins and antioxidants, a quick hit of this stuff will have you saying goodbye to oil, pores and redness without messing up your makeup.
