Makeup Essentials. If you ever rummage through a makeup artist’s bag, you are likely to find tons of makeup products inside, from assorted lipsticks and blush powders to eye shadow kits and makeup brushes. The chances are that you might even end up with some powdery cosmetic debris on your hands!
A makeup artist’s bag is like the ultimate makeup heaven that will simply blow you away, especially if you are a huge makeup addict. However, your own makeup bag doesn’t have to contain all those products that you are likely to find in a professional artist’s bag.
You are good to go if you have the basic makeup staples or essentials that you can use in multiple ways, be it a quick, simple look, on-the-go touchup, or your daily makeup routine.
Here are 7 makeup staples that you should always have in your makeup bag!
A Beauty Blender
This is like the ultimate, go-to blending tool that helps apply flawless foundation. Make sure that your bag always has at least one beauty blender because it can be used for blending your foundation, concealer, liquid blush, highlight, and almost every fluid-based product.
A Hydrating Concealer
We all want to hide those bags under our eyes, and concealer is the perfect product for that. It’s ideal for concealing acne, pigmentation, and blemishes on our skin. Keep one that has hydrating qualities because our under-eye areas need a lot of hydration at all times.
BB Cream or Foundation
Also often referred to as the ‘base,’ these two products are literally the foundation or base of any makeup look.
If you don’t like going all-out with makeup and prefer doing a natural look, you can choose to keep a BB cream in your bag since it is mostly low coverage. However, if you like full-glam makeup looks, a high coverage foundation is your best friend.
A Rosy-Pink Blush
A makeup look is absolutely incomplete without that glowy tinge of subtle pink on your cheeks! Make sure to always have a nice, pigmented blusher in your makeup bag for that extra pinky effect on your cheeks.
An Instant Eye Shadow
Eye shadow palettes are usually huge and heavy, except a few that are small in size and easy to carry. You can either go for those or opt for a few separate instant eye shadows in 2-3 basic colors to help up your eye makeup game!
Lip colors are an absolute must-have staple that helps bind the entire makeup look together! A single lip color just isn’t enough, so make sure that you have at least 3-4 different colored lip shades that you can use according to various occasions. You can even mix them up and create new colors if you like, depending on your overall makeup look.
A Glossy Mascara
Mascara simply makes everything better, especially if it’s black and glossy. Those long and voluminous lashes complete your entire makeup look and totally bring out the color of your eyes!
This list of makeup staples is by no means exhaustive given the so many other makeup products that are found in a typical makeup bag. However, these suffice as makeup ‘essentials’ that you require for a quick glam look!
