5 Makeup Items You Must Have

Building a makeup kit is something that every woman should consider doing. Because the makeup isn’t just about one piece. It is about finding a range of products that support one another and give you the overall “look” you were aiming for.

But where to start and what makeup to invest in?

We get that there is a lot of clutter out there in the makeup world. It can be so overwhelming to stand in the aisles and figure out which of the hundreds of makeup products you need first.

That’s why we are here because we want to help you with creating your look and keep it simple and straightforward when it comes to building your makeup kit.

Here are our top five makeup items that we think you must have and will set the foundation (literally!) for your journey with beauty and makeup.

1. Primer

Rule number one with makeup—if your face is not moisturized, the makeup won’t stick! So before you even get into it with figuring out what makeup to get, first and foremost get yourself a primer that is suitable for your skin type. That way your makeup will last on your face all day long!

2. Foundation

Right, now after you have got yourself a primer, it is time to look for your perfect foundation. Many foundations are made specifically for a certain skin tone, so take the time to make sure you pair yours right. The key to knowing if you are getting the right one is having the foundation blend in with your skin perfectly. And less is always more when it comes to your foundation and shouldn’t need to be layered on to do the job right!

3. Mascara

Your eyes are one of the most intriguing and beautiful parts about you, so you really want to make them pop! While some girls insist on using false lashes, you really shouldn’t need to if you invest in the right type of mascara. A good mascara will make your lashes thick and luscious in just a few quick swipes—the key is to go for volume! And no matter what time of day or occasion, a certain amount of mascara can be the only statement you really need when it comes to your makeup.

4. Lipstick /Lipgloss

Keep it simple and decide what you prefer best—lipstick or lipgloss. You need to be comfortable with the color and texture in order to make it a worthwhile investment, otherwise, chances are that you’ll never use it! During the day, a nude or glossy color goes a long way, but for special occasions, it is always nice to have a bold color that makes a big statement for you!

5. Highlighter

Now, to round off the five essentials, a highlighter is a must. It offers you a subtle glow that will make the rest of your makeup really stand out. Highlighter is used on the parts of your face that you want to accentuate, like your cheekbones or brows. A good highlighter can be used for both daytime and nighttime looks. It shouldn’t overdo it on the glitter and shimmer, but rather be just enough to complete your look and make you feel great!

Every gal needs a makeup kit with these top five essentials. There are obviously so many more makeup products you can add to the kit, such as quality brushes, eyeshadow, lip liner, eyeliner, and so on. But with these five products, you’ll be sorted for both the daytime and evening looks and walk into any room feeling confident and beautiful!

And the best part is, you can always play around with your essential products and test out new shades and tones until you find the ones that are perfect for you.
