Every woman has her own list of makeup essentials. Those must-have items that she won’t leave the house without wearing. Some people swear by waterproof mascara, while others can’t imagine getting dressed in the morning without their daily dose of blush. Some women love to experiment with bold colors and daring designs, while others prefer to keep it simple and classic. No matter what you do with your makeup, however, there are some basic items that everyone should have on hand at all times.
Powder, Blush & Highlighter
Having good makeup brushes will make it easier to apply your foundation and blush, but you should also invest in a powder, blush, and highlighter of your own. This way, you’ll have everything you need without having to buy it piecemeal. Make sure to stick with natural-looking colors that complement your skin tone. All three items are simple enough that they’ll take no time at all to apply, so it won’t matter if you don’t have someone else on hand to help out with things like eyeliner and lip color (though a brush will work wonders for those as well). Even if you use all three products every day, they’re likely to last quite some time before they run out — which is exactly what you want when shopping for makeup essentials.
The eyeshadow palette is a great product to have as it can be used to create many different makeup looks. The palette also includes two different brushes, making it easy to apply eye shadow. Eyeshadow palettes are inexpensive but they can get expensive if you want a high-end palette that has many shades of eye shadow and more than one brush. As a beginner, you don’t need an expensive palette right away; rather, look for a neutral-colored palette with just enough color options for you to learn how to wear them. If you plan on getting only one palette, make sure that at least some of its colors match your skin tone because using lighter shades with darker skin tones will only make your face appear washed out.
The most important item in your makeup bag? Your brow products! Brow makeup essentials are very important to have in your purse! Whether you’re plucking, filling, or shading, brows are integral to a fully finished look. They frame your face and bring attention to your eyes. And when you have a good set of brows defined and perfectly groomed. you can get away with almost any bad hair day. Having well-groomed brows is especially important if you have light hair because it brings contrast to your face and draws attention to your eyes.
Lipstick & Lip Glosses
Every woman needs a little bit of color on her lips. Whether she goes for a quick swipe of gloss or a long-lasting smudge of lipstick, there’s no excuse not to give your lips some shine. This step is also important because pouty and plump lips are in; it’s one of today’s most defining makeup trends. These makeup essentials will last you all day and make it seem like you put in more effort than you actually did (always a plus!). Just remember to blot before reapplying so that it doesn’t get sticky and smeary over time. Lip balm also comes in handy when your lips are dry from drinking water or other beverages throughout the day.
