Must Have Beauty Products

#1 - Primer or Foundation

A primer or a foundation must be applied after having cleaned the face with a non oily, facial cleanser. This makeup product helps make the facial skin look uniform in its color tone.
However, it is very important that you chose a primer which matches your skin tone, and it should not be a shade too light or dark. Once the primer or the foundation dries, you can proceed with the application of the rest of your makeup.

#2 - Pencil Eyeliner

Pencil eyeliners are available in a variety of colors, which can be used either on the lower eyelid or on the upper eyelid. There are smudge proof ones as well as those which look amazing when smudged.
This smudged look can help you flaunt the smoky, emo eyed look. This is a must have for every makeup bag. Colorful pencil eyeliners can be used and color coordinated, so as to give a trendy appeal to your usual eye makeup routine.

#3 - Liquid Eyeliner

Liquid eyeliners too come in a variety of colors and are easy to use. Once you get the hang on how to put on makeup, everything feels simpler. However, perfecting this art takes some years. They need to be applied onto the curve of the upper eyelid.
These are a must have because they make the eyes look bigger and more expressive. They also work wonders in providing the bolder look, which every women desires. Always go in for the waterproof version, as these last throughout the day, and do not get smudged.

#4 - Eyeshadow

An excellent shade of eyeshadow can make a world of difference in your overall appearance. Nonetheless, a wrong shade which does not match your skin tone can make you look awful! So be extra careful and seek the help of a friend, as to how well the eyeshadow shade suits you.

#5 - Mascara

Mascaras help darken and thicken the eyelashes. These are a very crucial part of every woman's makeup set, as sometimes, simply applying mascara without an eyeliner, fits the occasion.
When mascara is applied along with a pencil eyeliner, it adds depth to the shape of the eye. Most of all it accentuates your eyelashes, which makes all the difference!

#6 - Concealer Pencil

This is a must have for those who have dark under eye circles on their natural skin tone, and wish to cover it up using makeup. It is also good for people who have slight wrinkles, blemishes, scars or veins under their eyes, and do not want it to seem too prominent.

#7 - Compact

A compact is a very thin powder-like makeup which is used to even out the makeup. It absorbs the extra layers of makeup and sweat, if any. Many people, mostly those with greasy skin, prefer to apply compact, instead of using primer.

#8 - Rouge

A tad hint of rouge can give you a natural blush and make you seem happier. This pinkish red powder must be applied onto the cheekbones. Do remember that this is not a mandatory part of your makeup set, unless you think the blush suits you well.

#9 - Matte Finish Lipstick

Lip gloss will always stay longer, if there is an underlying coat of lip stick. Matte lipsticks are an absolute must. Always go in for pastel and nude shades. A red lipstick is always welcome, if it suits your skin tone.

#10 - Lip Gloss

Lip gloss looks amazing and makes the lips look fuller and accentuated. There are glosses with a simple coat of sheen, while some have slight glitters. The glittery ones can be worn for a party or a date, and will ensure that you look wonderful.
One very crucial fact to remember is that you must never overdo your makeup, as that will make you look too decked up or too old. Secondly, it will become too obvious to anyone who looks at you, that you have applied a bit too much of makeup.
Thirdly, it is even more important that you buy good quality makeup products, and not go in for the less popular or cheaper brands. Good quality products will be safe for your skin. Hopefully, now you know which are the must have makeup products, that must be present in your beauty kit at all times.
