Must-Have Make-Up Essentials For Every Woman

Most women consider makeup as an essential. In fact, this is one of the most important items in her cosmetic bag. This cosmetic bag can be a little pouch that holds every tool that can help her look fresh faced throughout the day. However, for some women, this little pouch is not so little anymore. When a bigger purse is needed to accommodate everything, a woman may be carrying around way too much stuff.

Makeup Essentials

So, what are the true makeup essentials? While it may have slight difference for each one, every woman should carry with them some basic items. In addition, these essentials are products that you can justifiably spend some money on, as they can actually make or break any look. Here are the make-up essentials that every woman should have in their pouch:

  • Concealer. Concealer is the perfect tool to help make blemishes, dark spots, and dark circles under the eye fade or disappear entirely. This makeup essential comes in liquid, sticks and creams. The liquid ones are the lightest form of concealer while the sticks are the most opaque and solid. This makeup essential come in several shades. Thus, it is important to choose the one that matches your skin tone.
  • Lotion/Moisturizer. Applying makeup over dry, parched skin is a big no-no. This is why it is important to carry moisturizer. This makeup essential helps keep your skin hydrated. In addition, this can provide a smooth palette where makeup is applied. Moisturizers lock water inside the skin so that it will not dry out. In choosing one, you have to choose those products that are not too heavy or too greasy. It is always best to choose the ‘oil-free’ products.
  • Translucent Powder. This makeup essential can give you that effortless look. When this is applied correctly, this becomes invisible. However, this can create a flawless and perfectly blended look. This can smooth out the borders between each of the elements applied, controls shine and oil, sets the foundation, and tone down makeup mistakes.
  • Makeup Brushes. Makeup brushes are the tools needed to create a makeup masterpiece. There are different kinds of brushes. You have to make sure that you have each type like the eyeshadow brush, blush brush, lip brush, powder brush and brow groomer.
  • Blush. A blusher, if the right shade is chosen, can actually give you that rosy-cheeked and healthy look. When choosing the right shade, you have to match the color of the blush with your skin tone. This makeup essential come in cream and powder forms.
  • Eyeshadow. Eye color can be dramatic for the evening and understated for the daytime. This makeup essential comes in cream, pencil and powder forms. With the various options, this essential is considered versatile. In addition, this can accentuate your eyes.
  • Eyeliner. This makeup essential can define and accentuate the shape of the eyes. This comes in liquid, gel and powder form.
  • Mascara. Having thick and long eyelashes are considered a beauty must. Thus, it is essential to include mascara in your makeup kit. This can lengthen, separate, and thicken lashes depending on which type you use and how it is applied. Thinner mascaras create natural looking lashes. On the other hand, thicker mascaras make the lashes look bolder and broader.
  • Lip Gloss/Lipstick. Polished lips can actually complete an overall makeup look. Lipstick stands out more compared to lip gloss, as this is more opaque. Lip gloss, however, provide a more subtle shine, which actually make the lips look plumper.

With these makeup essentials, every woman can achieve that fresh faced appearance anywhere and anytime.
