Staying on top of your makeup routine can be tough. It can be easy to fall behind with endless new products that can come out every season. After all, there are bound to be some new skincare products, new makeup trends, and new fragrances to test out. In such situations, what could possibly slip through the cracks in your basic makeup routine? We rounded up the best makeup products you need in your makeup bag, regardless of your price range or taste.
The foundation of any successful makeup kit is the concealer, so don’t skip out on this item. A concealer is meant to hide imperfections on your face. Use it to cover blemishes, dark circles, and any scars. It will not erase all redness from your skin, and it definitely won’t replace sunscreen, but it will certainly help hide any unwanted issues.
The Foundation is essential to any makeup stash. Without it, you can’t exactly wear makeup. The foundation acts as a base, filling in any blemishes and smoothening the skin. No matter what kind of foundation you choose, it’s important to keep it clean. Not washing it enough can clog your pores and lead to breakouts.
The Blush makeup is perfect for any occasion, and it’s excellent for accentuating the high points in our face, giving us a youthful appearance. Blush makeup comes in numerous varieties since there are many places you can apply it. Blush can be applied all over the face or on the apples of the cheeks, depending on the look you’re going for. For a soft, natural look, apply blush in a circular motion to the apples of the cheeks. For a more striking look, use blush as a highlighter, stippling the powder on the highest points of the face, such as the cheekbones and the bridge of the nose.
- Translucent setting powder
Translucent setting powder is needed in your makeup bag, especially as we move into the warmer months when skin tends to look a bit greasy. I recommend Dermablend Setting Powder, which provides a matte finish and contains SPF 15. It’s perfect for days when you don’t feel the need to wear foundation and want a natural look.
We all know that makeup is a woman’s crowning glory. But did you know it can also be a protector? The importance of using mascara cannot be overemphasized. It not only enhances your eyes but also helps to prevent annoying eye infections. I am not talking about infections from the makeup but infections from wearing poor quality and expired mascara.
Eyeliner is essential for any woman’s makeup bag. It is used to define the eyes and to draw attention to them. Most women prefer to apply eyeliner pencil, but some prefer liquid eyeliners, which create dramatic lines. The eyes are one of those facial features that we can easily enhance.
Lipstick is the staple of a modern woman’s attire. From professional meetings to happy hours with friends and family, lipstick is worn to make oneself feel and look their best. The problem is that some lipsticks are for special events, while others are worn daily. The wrong lipstick can actually make the wearer feel worse rather than better, and a poor-quality shade might even be detrimental to a person’s overall health.
- Face Primer
Face Primer is an essential makeup product when it comes to keeping your skin healthy. It should be applied before any foundation, placing emphasis on areas such as the jawline, nose, and forehead. Face Primer is used to provide a smooth base to prevent makeup from looking cakey and uneven. An oil-free formula should be used to prevent the primer from drying out the skin.
So, there you have it! Some of the most essential items for any woman’s makeup bag, regardless of what brand of products are preferred. Look into your makeup bag right now, and restock as necessary!
