6 Makeup Bag Essentials

Do you have too many makeup items in your bag that take up too much space while you almost never use half of those products? Well, let me break it down for you by showing you the 6 items that are most important and that can be used for achieving various goals when doing your makeup.

1. Mascara

The one thing I always make sure I have is mascara. The eyes are in fact, the windows to the soul. By using mascara, your lashes get more volume and it gives your eyes depth. Mascara can also bring out the colour of your eyes which can look very attractive. Even on days when I do not feel like wearing any makeup, I always apply mascara because it changes my look completely.

2. Tinted Moisturiser

I am a big fan of tinted moisturiser! I almost never wear normal foundation on a daily basis. Tinter moisturiser provides a lighter cover that allows your skin to breathe more, meaning fewer breakouts and clogged pores. Always go for a tinted moisturiser that contains SPF so that your skin is always protected when running your everyday errands. I wear this when working out, for photoshoots and when completing my everyday necessities. I always keep it at hand because it is so easy to remove and re-apply when needed.

3. Lip Balm

Keep them glossy and bossy! I am giving you my insider tips here. I have been using Elizabeth Arden’s 8-hour cream for about 3 years now and it is AMAZING! Not only do I use it for my lips, but also use it to shape my brows and highlight my cheekbones. Having a product in your bag that can be used for achieving various goals not only saves you space but money.

4. Concealer

A good concealer always comes in handy when you get unexpected breakouts. Concealer also refreshes tired-looking eyes and some days, we all need a little fix. It also protects your skin from the sun and benefits the overall appearance of your face.

5. Bronzing Powder

Bring out the most beautiful features of your face by using a bronzing powder on your cheeks, forehead, neck and nose. This can also come in handy when you need eyeshadow. Bronzing can give you a healthy tanned look which for me, is a game-changer.

6. Primer

Primer not only prepares your skin for makeup and helps your foundation stay longer, but it can also give you a glowing look. It illuminates and hydrates your skin. After using this Smashbox primer, I have never looked back!
