Eyeliner and Mascara (well maybe that is two but let’s sneak it in as one!)
Your eyes can determine your overall look, starting from simple to dramatic, so that’s where you should focus first. A good quality eyeliner and mascara are the first two things to get for your makeup bag. The Napoleon Perdis Eye Liner is a great addition that has a 6-hour waterproof wear with an ultrasoft tip for smooth application. For mascara, the Yves St Laurent’s Shocking mascara will give you glossy and dark lashes without the clumpiness of other mascaras.
A bronzer is the last thing women usually think of when buying makeup, but that’s where they go wrong. This product is the best thing you can use to get a slightly-there-tan look, no matter what the weather is or how many hours you spend cooped up your office. It’s something that can give a very healthy glow to your skin if you don’t overdo it. If you need a recommendation, the best bronzer you can get is the Clarins Bronzing Duo as it comes in three different shades.
Having dry and chapped lips is definitely a no-win when it comes to makeup; you don’t have to be a genius to know that. So buying a good lip gloss is definitely worth every penny you spend on it. However, when spending so much on lip gloss, why not pick something that offers a bit more? You can get the Long Lasting Glosswear by Clinique that doesn’t only come in 18 alluring shades, but also features an SPF count of 15.
BB Cream Or Tinted Moisturiser
A BB cream, or tinted moisturiser, is another thing you should definitely have in your makeup bag. Both these products act not only as foundations but also as effective sunscreens. However, BB creams are also effective in reenergizing your skin due to their antioxidant features. If you are looking for a BB cream, you can pick the Diorskin BB crème by Dior. In tinted moisturizers, the best you can get is the Bobbi Brown SPF 15 Tinted Moisturizer Oil Free.
If you think removing all the makeup that you put on your face is easy, you have another think coming! No matter how hard you scrub with your soap or face wash, your eye makeup would still adamantly stick. What you need here is a nice and gentle makeup remover that can take care of all that makeup without leaving your skin harshly rubbed. The Clinique Take the Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes and Lips is a great and really gentle makeup removing option.
If you have these basic items in your makeup bag and still have some more makeup money to go, you can move on to other items like eye shades and lipsticks. For bare essentials, however, these products will have you looking great every day.
