Hey my lovelies! Hope you’re having a good day 🙂
This post is one of the most hyped about topics and as easy as it might sound, choosing 5 must have makeup products, is a very difficult job! Before I begin I want you all to know that these are my personal preferences, and you can replace these 5 products with any other that you like more! I’ll try and keep the 5 categories as broad as possible so that you could pick your most loved product to carry around in your makeup bag!
5 MUST HAVE MAKEUP PRODUCTS
Most of us do not even know about a Primer and even the ones, who are well aware of this ESSENTIAL step, tend to skip it. Who doesn’t want their makeup to last all day long? Or stay put throughout that humid and hot day? The answer lies in this simple and First Must Have Makeup Product: Primer.
I would recommend the Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser. This is under $10 and works like any good primer out there! Your favorite beauty gurus love it too! Buy this to get a Poreless canvas for the rest of your makeup to follow.
FOUNDATION / BB CREAM:
This doesn’t even have to be mentioned because we all know how important this product is. The 2nd Must Have makeup item is having a Foundation or a BB cream, depending upon what level of coverage you desire. If you think that you don’t want to carry the weight of a foundation all day, try a BB cream. I have reviewed two of the best BB creams earlier: Maybelline VS Garnier BB Cream
Whenever you step out to choose a foundation, there are trillions of options and you all know that I am not even exaggerating! It is important for you to know what kind of skin you have and buy a foundation accordingly. If you tend to be on the oilier side of the scale, try these foundations for oily skin to save yourself.
With this we come to the 3rd Must Have Product and that is a good under-eye concealer. Sometimes there tend to be some acne scars or blemishes that are not completely covered by your foundation or BB cream. This is where the concealer does its job. Choose a concealer that hides your blemishes and not accentuates them.
My recommendations: Maybelline Fit Me Concealer, Rimmel Match Perfection Illuminating Concealer.
TINTED LIP BALM:
Here comes my favorite must have product. The 4th product is a tinted lip balm. I personally have dehydrated lips ALL THE TIME because of me not drinking water on a regular basis so I try and compensate that with a lip balm. This would give your lips a bit of color and make them stay hydrated.
My Recommendation: The Body Shop Lip Balm in Raspberry (this smells so good that you’ll actually have to resist eating it)
Last but not the least; the 5th Must Have is Mascara. If you want to avoid the tiresome experience of applying false lashes every time, go for mascara. There are hundreds of options to choose from. Just keep in mind that after a couple of months your mascara would probably go clumpy so instead of just putting it somewhere in a corner in your bag, apply it. The application of mascara would create a drastic effect in your finished look.
My Recommendations: L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Superstar Mascara, Rimmel London ScandalEyes Retro Glam, CoverGirl Plumpify BlastPro by LashBlast Mascara.
That’s about it for now; let me know what your 5 Must Have Products include in the comments down below! Until Next Time 🙂
