Top 8 makeup bag essentials
Is your makeup bag nearly as big as a modestly sized suitcase? Stuffed full of every conceivable beauty product, just in case? If this is you, then give yourself a treat and empty the whole lot out on a table and have a good sort out today. The chances are that you’ll find some makeup products you haven’t used for months, some that have run out or gone dry and some items you don’t even remember putting there in the first place. To make the task a bit easier, we’ve listed eight of the top beauty must haves and makeup bag essentials that you need to put back in again:
Every girl needs her concealer. It hides a multitude of sins from dark circles under eyes to slight blemishes, so keep it handy!
Blush is always good to keep in the bag, if you don’t have naturally rosy cheeks, blush can help. A little touch up of blush towards the end of the day brings back that fresh and glowing look you had in the morning.
Eyeliner has an annoying tendency to wear off or smudge in the course of a day, so this is a definitely on our essential makeup list.
Moisturizer is a must, if you suffer from dry skin. Keeping your skin, particularly your hands, hydrated is essential in the winter months, so don’t forget to moisturize each time you wash your hands to keep you skin moist and supple.
Despite the claims of some manufacturers, no one has invented the guaranteed, all day, lipstick yet. So keep some handy in your bag to keep your lips in tip top shape all day long.
Your hair may be immaculate when you walk out your front door, but, one strong gust of wind and you will look like you’ve been dragged through the proverbial hedge backwards; so always packing a hairbrush is a must.
7. Eyelash curler and Mascara
A quick swipe of mascara can make all the difference, but without the curl to go with it, it’s not the same. So keep both, your eyelash curler and your mascara in the bag for full, gorgeous eyelashes.
8. Mints or gum
Not makeup, we know, but essential, if you had garlic for lunch!
So there you are. You may not agree with all our choices, every girl is different, but, at least, now you’ve cleaned out that makeup bag!
