A big collection of makeup is something most women dream of. Many have already built an overwhelming array of cosmetic items in their makeup drawer. A true makeup enthusiast understands this and there is really no such thing as too much makeup! While it’s great to have a variety of brands and cosmetics in different formulations, streamlining your makeup kit can prove to be important for those days when all you can bring is a small purse. The challenge is, what do you prioritize when you love them all? Here, we have made a list of key items that will help you look glam from day to night without worrying if you have missed out on a beauty must. Here are the items you should have in your purse:
- A tinted moisturizer with SPF.
The best start for a perfect canvas is to apply a moisturizer with SPF, so you are protected from the sun’s harmful rays. The added tint is great for neutralizing your skin tone prior to foundation application and it will also fill lines of your face to give you an even and poreless appearance. This will double as hand moisturizer too so always keep one in your bag so you’ll never have to feel dry.
- The perfect shade of foundation.
What we mean by the perfect shade is the shade that disappears into your skin. This is important because looking natural is the best secret to looking beautiful. To do this, swipe a small amount of foundation on your jawline and look at it under natural lighting (aka sunlight. If it disappears into your skin, then it’s your match.
- A great concealer that hides imperfections.
This is your best friend and will aid you in looking fresh and flawless. Use liquid formulations under the eyes that are 1 to 2 shades than your skin tone. To hide scars and existing acne, use a real concealer that is a shade darker. This will help that area recede and fade into the background. Just remember to set with a loose powder so it stays put.
- Colorless lip balm to sooth dry lips and skin.
