In order to look absolutely amazing, there are 5 makeup must-have’s I believe every woman should own. The following beauty products are perfect for any age and are all you need to look your best.
Mascara opens your eyes and makes them pop. Even if you’re too rushed to put on makeup in the morning, a few quick swipes of mascara will help you look awake and pretty. For blond lashes, a dark-brown mascara will provide a hint of color and definition without looking too out of place. Others can wear black or navy blue for a refreshing jolt of color (plus, navy mascara makes blue eyes pop!)
2. Red Lipstick
Every woman should own a tube of red lipstick. It’s bold, daring and perfect for a night on the town or for a sweep of dramatic color anytime. Yes, red lipstick is notoriously hard to pull off, but with the right color every woman can wear red.
For those of you with pink tones, go for a plummy red. Women who have yellow tones should stick with reds that are warm and have a brown base.
for cool tones or Maybelline Moisture Extreme Lipstick in Wine and Roses for warmer skin tones.
Even if you don’t wear foundation, a woman cannot be without a good concealer in her makeup bag. Choose a concealer a shade or two lighter than your skin tone; if you only use concealer and no foundation, however, choose a shade that more closely resembles the exact shade of your skin.
I have very difficult skin, and Neutrogena Healthy Skin Smoothing Stick offers amazing coverage and blends flawlessly, with or without other face makeup.
A few swipes of mascara and a sweep of blush every morning will wake up a dull, tired face instantly. I’m surprised by the amount of women who don’t wear blush, or simply don’t know how to use this makeup essential.
For light-skinned women, choose a blush with rose or pink tones; darker-skinned women should go for a blush with apricot, brown or red tones.
If you’re concerned about the type of blush you should use, the condition of your skin can help you out: Oily and combination skin would benefit from using powder blush, while cream blush works well for dry skin. For very oily skin, try a liquid or gel-based blush.
5. Eyebrow Pencil
The way your brows look defines the rest of your face; unkempt brows look ragged and detract from an otherwise flawless face.
A brow pencil can help define and color eyebrows (a good pair of tweezers doesn’t hurt, either). You’ll look well-groomed all day!
I love Revlon Brow Fantasy Pencil & Gel duo. The pencil defines and fills in brows while the gel helps shape unruly eyebrows and keeps them in place all day.
These are definitely 5 makeup must-have’s every woman should stock in her makeup bag. With these 5 products, you won’t even need anything else!
