Since I’m a makeup artist and a beauty junkie I decided to bring you what I think are the Top 10 Beauty Must-Haves for every girl out there!
1-Tinted Moisturizer or Foundation! I actually wore this one from MAC in the shade Light (the lightest of them all) and liked it a lot! It evens out your skin and moisturizes at the same time!!
2- Body lotion or body butter! I think every girl (and boy!) should keep themselves moisturized!!! And don’t let yourself be fooled by very “baby-feeling” skin (as I like to call it)! I never thought I needed a lotion, until I tried one for the first time!!
3- A neutral eye-shadow quad! If you have this, you can do many different looks that apply to day and night! Specially if you’re a beginner with make-up, I would advise you to stay with the neutrals and venture to the colors afterwards when you feel a bit more confident in using them (trust me, I still have a very vivid red shadow that I hardly ever use…)
4- Mascara! I may go out of the house with a bare face, but my mascara has to be put!!! I actually do use this one as well, it’s from Maybelline and I think it’s totally one of the best mascaras I’ve ever tried!
5- A GOOD moisturizer! I never cared about brands (and still am a bit like that) until I got this Moisturizing Gel from Clinique as a present!
6- A good lip balm!! My favorite is from Carmex, with no special flavor ..well, it’s minty, but as far as I know that’s the “natural” flavor they have!! It’s really good for my lips!!
7- An Exfoliator! Yes, it makes wonders! You can make your own at home with some sugar and water, but I feel it’s to harsh on my skin and I prefer a store bought one! You can also make some face masks a couple of days a week and get the same results!
8- Eyeliner!! In any color you like! The most common are black and brown, it does help defining you eye and if you use a white one, it opens up your eyes!!
9- Bronzer or blush (or both!)! (the MAC powder actually should be next to the body shop one upsy daisy) I believe that a good bronzer makes you look way healthier than just the normal powder!
10- Lipstick or Lipgloss!! I actually LOVE the Dior lipsticks (but they’re way too expensive!)!! They are a lipstick that feel like a gloss!! This can give you a bit of color and it’s the easiest way to play up your face, specially if you’re in a hurry!!
Please bare in mind these are what I think every girl should have and not just regarding to make-up! Yes, most of you would have included a concealer, but I think sometimes you can use your own foundation as a concealer (I know I do!)
