Must have Beauty Products in a Girls Bag & Rock the Town
Women don’t want to be too makeup-y 😉 these days. Just like you crave for perfect wardrobe with a well-fitting pair of jeans and little black dress pull together a wardrobe like a magic. The same principle applies for your makeup bag. Having an extensive cosmetic collection is fantastic, but what every woman REALLY needs are the perfect beauty basics; the products so versatile and essential that you reach for them again and again. Here are 7 must have Beauty Products in a Girls Bag to keep in mind when retooling your own day-to-day kit.
1. Its Crime to not apply Prime
Primers are a must have for every girl. It not only helps the makeup to be long lasting but also covers your pores so that makeup doesn’t damage your skin. A primer minimizes pores and creates a smooth base perfect for the rest of your makeup application. This is a step you can skip if your skin is naturally flawless, but if you have any imperfections, it’s a fabulous product that will make your skin look amazing. For all skin types, we recommend Colorbar Perfect Match Primer.
2. BB Cream or CC Cream
It’s just common sense, really, to have healthy skin—better skin ultimately means a better base for makeup—so it’s always good to moisturize day and night. Every successful makeup look needs a foundation, but that doesn’t mean you have to use one. For most complexions, semi-sheer tints give just the right amount of coverage and let your glow shine through. Choose a product with built-in SPF like Revlon Photo Ready BB Cream Skin Perfector SPF 30.
3. A Cheek Colour – Bronzer or Blush
We love a bright blush, but a neutral shade that won’t clash with your lipstick (or your outfit) is the ultimate makeup bag workhorse. Blush being a non-negotiable makeup item. A swipe of colour on your cheeks is natural and creates a healthy glow. A quick swipe of blush will leave you looking awake instead of like you just spent all night in the library.
If your skin is naturally more tan, a bronzer may look more natural than blush. Also, if you’re naturally fair-skinned, applying bronzer during the warmer months gives you a sun-kissed look without the damages of tanning. It’s best to apply bronzer (with a large, fluffy brush) where the sun naturally hits your face – a curved “C” shape on each side of your face from your forehead to your cheek bone and just a dab on your nose.
4. Beauty lies in the Eyes, Hence Eyeliner
Eyeliner can be applied in many ways to define your eyes. Another must-have is a black eyeliner pencil or gel eyeliner (which is applied with a thin brush), which can take your look from day to night, depending on how much you apply. For 24 hours, lasting Gel Eyeliner try L’Oreal Paris Super Liner 24 hours, Gel Black.
A black or dark brown mascara is essential for an everyday look. It’s the quickest way to make your eyes pop. We love Maybelline The Falsies Volum Express Waterproof Mascara
6. Lip with Gloss has no Flaws – Lip Balm or Lip Gloss
Glosses are the clear winner over lipsticks. They have a sheer, natural look and are so much easier to apply than a lipstick. A swipe of gloss is the perfect finishing touch for any look. There’s a subtle difference between a bare-naked lip and barely-there lip colour, but slicking on a healthy pink has serious payoff when it comes to looking pulled together and wide away. By the way, if you want to know more on Lip Gloss, here is a guide to decision making:
7. Tweezers and Q-tips
We love tweezers – in our experience, they really do work the best, and, okay, they also come in the prettiest colours and patterns. Tweezer is excellent for plucking big, small, thick and thin hair. Check it on amazon.in for Colorbar Wow Brows Flat Tip Tweezer.
Q-tips are great for smudging eyeliner and soaking in makeup remover for quick touch ups. Even better? They’re super inexpensive.
Oh! one more important thing. A nice small mirror, or better a sexy cool smartphone whose camera or mirror APP can be used to immediately check if you are in a perfect decked-up look to rock the town.
