Top 5 Makeup Essentials
by Gabriela Lubaba
When it comes to makeup products, there are so many of them that I need to have. Too bad I can’t carry them all. So I always have a small makeup bag to carry all of my make up essentials everywhere I go. I want to share with you all my top 5 makeup essentials that I always carry in my makeup bag.
In my opinion, mascara is the most important makeup product to have in your make up purse. I can go out without wearing my makeup at all but I have to have my mascara on. All you need is a few coats on your lashes and it makes a big difference to your face. One of the mascara that I really like is Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara. You should give it a try!
2. Face Powder
You all know what it’s for. I think every woman has to have a powder in their makeup bag. Sometimes all you need is a few touch up and you’re good to go. Plus, most face powder comes with a mirror in it so you don’t have to carry an extra mirror in your make up bag. Right now, I’m using chanel’s natural finish face powder. Highly recommended!
3. Blotting Papers.
If you have a oily skin like me, having a blotting paper in your make up bag is a must. You don’t know how much oil you have in your face until you absorb it with these. You just have to gently pad your T-zone with the paper until it got rid of most of the oil. I recommend the Bobbi Brown ones. It’s so good it doesn’t smudge your make up at all.
4. Lip Balm
Dry lips are a big no no! Unless you’re dehydrated in the middle of a desert, there’s no excuse to have dry lips. Always have a lip balm in your purse ladies! Trust me, lips are one of the most important feature in your face. You don’t want to have chapped lips ever. There are so many good lip balms out there but the one that I really like is Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1.
5. Travel size perfume or body mist
I think this is the most important essential of all. Coco chanel once said, “a woman who doesn’t wear perfume has no future.” When I think about it, it’s kinda true. You can look like a train wreck but still smell good. Always have a travel size perfume wherever you go. You never know who you’re going to meet. You want to smell good to make a good first impression! You don’t have to spent crazy amount of money for this. Victoria Secret carries a huge selection of travel-sized body mist you can choose. They’re pretty inexpensive too.
So that was my top 5 essentials in my makeup bag. What’s yours? Let me know in the comment section down below.
