The workday doesn’t end when Maria Bartiromo leaves the Fox Business Network studio. “I have to study up on upcoming guests’ books,” the global markets editor tells Us. “That’s why I need to have such a big bag!” The host of Opening Bell (weekdays at 9 a.m.), wed to investor Jonathan Steinberg, lets Us investigate her Prada purse.
“I love my big Harman Kardon headphones. They’re noise-canceling, and you can switch between music and calls easily. I’m a multitasker, so I’m always typing while I’m on the phone.”
Making a Mark
“I have to have Laura Mercier lip liner in Hazelnut Tea and L’Oréal mascara in my makeup case.”
“I really like Vicks menthol cough drops. They’re so good for my voice.”
Ready to Report
“I carry my own on-air earpiece because it’s molded to my ear. Otherwise, I’d have to use a random one the studio guys give me.”
“I take a lot of notes. I keep two blue pens and yellow highlighters in a Ziploc so they don’t stain my bag.”
“My mother gave me a red ribbon tied in a bow for good luck. I never take it out because it’s from my mom!”
More of Maria Bartiromo’s must-haves for her bag: Tory Burch wallet, iPhone 5, Lobello chapstick, MAC lipstick, hair ties, and John Freida Frizz Ease hairspray.
