Most women have the same exact problem: a cosmetic bag that’s overflowing, but no clue exactly what to do with all the beauty essentials. That’s when it’s time to take a back-to-basics approach: These 10 beauty essentials or products are all you need for a flawless face.
1. Face Primer
Ladies with oily skin would definitely appreciate this tip, trust us. It has been tried and tested several times especially in this hot hot weather of ours. Apply a face primer before wearing your foundation or powder and your makeup would glide on effortlessly and would last for over 8 hours without getting oily
2. Foundation/Powder or Concealer
Many women believe that good complexion is the foundation of beauty. And this belief is not unfounded. No matter how much designer makeup you put on, it will fail to have an effect if your skin is looking unhealthy. This is why the first essential makeup item on the list should be something to help enhance your complexion.
If you already have good skin to begin with then all you need is some moisturizer with some tint to even out your skin tone. However, if you are like the majority of women whose complexions are less than perfect then you may need a combination of concealer and foundation.
Use concealer to disguise blemishes and other unsightly spots. Use the foundation for evening out your complexion. Makeup minerals are now in the rage and these products might be worth looking into if you prefer natural cosmetics.
Applying blush on your cheeks can instantly give you a healthy glow. And if you were up all night caring for a baby or doing overtime work then you could certainly use some! Make sure you choose a blush tone that complements your skin tone. Anything too dark can make you look gaunt while a too-bright blush can make you look like a clown
Every woman knows how essential the eyeliner is when it comes to eye shadows. But even without applying eyeshadow, the eyeliner helps define your eyes. You can play with it to give you bigger or smaller eyes depending on your preference.
5. A Great Eyelash Curler
Most eyelashes grow outward, not upward, so applying mascara without curling your lashes won’t provide the same impact. Never curl lashes after you apply mascara -they can stick to the tool and end up getting yanked out. Use a plastic curler. Place it as close to the base as you can without catching your eyelid, press for a few seconds, then gently press a few more times along the middle of lashes if necessary.
No matter what different makeup regimens different women follow, one of the things they can all agree on is that black mascara is one of the makeup items you can’t live without. The best way to apply mascara is to curl your lashes beforehand. Two to three coats are usually enough to get you through the day but you can apply more if you want your look to be more dramatic.
Even our most conservative ladies can rock this! From neutral to bright colors, there is something for everyone. We don’t need to tell you about the effects of colored eyeshadow but if you are adverse to color, try adding a dark brown color to your crease to define your eyes. Every woman should have at least 3 colors a light color for the lid and darker one for the crease and a wild card (any bright color that tickles your fancy).
When you’re always on the go then you might not have time to apply lip liner and lipstick to create that perfect pout. A good lip gloss can solve your problem. Choose a lip gloss that can give you more than just a single benefit. For example, there are now lip gloss products that can moisturize your lips and prevent chapping while giving you color at the same time.
9. The Perfect Nude Lipstick
Some look too brown, and others too pink. Find the perfect shade and rock the natural look.
10. A good set of brushes
There is no point spending money buying makeup without the right tools to apply it with. Every woman needs, A foundation brush, powder brush, blush brush, angle brush and at least 3 eyeshadow brushes. Try to avoid buying synthetic brushes, splurge a little and buy animal hair brushes, they are easier to work with and your skin will thank you for it.
