5 Things Every Girl Needs In Her Makeup Bag

Am I the only one whose daily makeup bag gets filled with too many beauty products to choose from? The makeup world is a tricky business. If you’re a makeup newbie or just looking for tips on how to simplify your makeup bag, today I am sharing with you the 5 things I use to get my day started quicker, instead of rummaging through my makeup bag, which I admit I do way more often than I need to. Let’s get started!


Honestly, a base is chosen by your preference. If you’re anything like me, I’m good to go with just a tinted moisturizer to even out my face. Another option could be foundation for those of you who like more coverage throughout the day. A base is the first step in creating a smooth and even complexion for the rest of your makeup routine.

There are so many concealers out there, it’s overwhelming. I would recommend you use something that’s one or two shades lighter (again, all depends on your skin and what you feel comfortable with). Concealer will help conceal and highlight your face at the same time.

Add a blush into your makeup bag collection to simply bring color back into your face.

I am obsessed with highlighter. Whether I’m going glam or natural, whether it’s powder or liquid…I need to apply highlighter at some point. I think highlighter gives the perfect glow to your face. Here’s my secret to that fleeky cheek look: apply a liquid highlighter first & go over it with a powder. Boom. You’ll be getting compliments all day long.

Mascara is an absolute must in your makeup bag. A couple coats of the perfect mascara and your entire makeup look enhances. For every day, a little bit of mascara is all you’ll need.

    I obsess with highlighter way too much as well! I’ve never tried the sun beam liquid higlighter, but I have the high beam one and it’s just amazing… looking forward to trying the sun beam for the summer

      You will love it! I was a big fan of the High Beam one as well, but I have more tanner skin so the Sun Beam highlighter gives me a really nice, healthy glow. And I agree, it’s the perfect color for the summer time 🙂
