What do you put in your makeup bag? Are you currently overwhelmed with the many types of makeup that you can place in it? All brands seem to call out to you and tell you that they are necessary.
But what does make a certain makeup necessary for your daily routine? What beauty items do you need to makeup a face? Sadly, much unnecessary stuff likes to hide under the word "necessary" just to get another sale from customers.
But you need not fret that you have to go through this beautifying jungle alone.
Here is a list of the makeup items that could be expected to be found in any woman's makeup bag.
Primer (optional for some): The primer helps conceal large pores and is really good in bringing out the best in your makeup.
However, if you are just really sticking to the basics, you might find it uncalled for in your daily activities and prefer to use it during special occasions.
In any case, you just try it out to decide whether it will be a must-have or a luxury for your makeup kit.
Concealer: needed especially on 'bad skin' days.
Under-eye bags and other bad spots that take attention away from your pretty face are more or less hidden from public view thanks to concealer.
Face powder, tinted moisturizer or foundation: Choose between any of the three that you are to use for daily activities.
Just make sure that the face powder, tinted moisturizer or foundation is comprised of a shade that is naturally close to your skin tone.
Eye shadow: Your eye shadow dictates how your eyes will look.
The shades will play up with your eye color.
A basic palette of the best shade which matches your eye shape and color is a very good investment.
Clear Mascara: Very dark mascaras are good for dramatic moments.
But if you are just looking for a laid-back way of enhancing your eye lashes, then clear mascara is a good makeup necessary that you can add to your makeup bag.
This way, you will still have the coverage that you need for your lashes without being fashion overkill during a regular day at the office or at home.
Blush-on or cheek tint: A little shade of pink is good especially for fair skinned maidens.
If you are really into the whole color matching thing, you can even buy a dual cheek and lip tint so that you will not have to buy two separate items.
Signature lipstick: Your lipstick shade also carries the drama for your lips.
You can either get a rich red one, but if you intend to use it daily, more natural shades such as pink or peach are also good for your makeup regimen.
Lip gloss: Your lip gloss allows your lips to stay hydrated throughout the day.
If you can't apply a lot of lipstick during the day, at least have a good lip gloss or lip balm that also has a touch of color in it.
When you purchase your makeup necessaries, make sure that you are able to test how they all go together.
Preferably, buy a single line of basic makeup from the same brand.
