Top 10 Must Women Makeup Essentials

Makeup; It adds drama to life, a splash of color and is a form of art. We do it for ourselves, to look good and to feel good. Also, I truthfully admit that sometimes the only reason we wear makeup is to impress others. Whatsoever the reason may be and though many of us hate to admit it-makeup is an essential and inseparable part of our lives.


Women Makeup Essentials

So here’s a list of the top 10 Makeup Essentials:

10. Kohl

You can (almost) never go wrong with Kohl. A kohl is something almost everyone can pull off. Eyes are the windows to your soul, so why not accentuate them and make them prettier to look at. From lining your waterline to elaborately done smokey eyes, there’s so much a kajal can do. Make sure you use a waterproof, non-smudging one. Having tried the three hot-in-the market products: Lakme’s Eyeconic, L’oreal’s Magique and Maybelline’s Colossal, I found Colossal to be the one for me. If the kohl appears to be smudging, apply a little bit of brown or black eye shadow just below the waterline or translucent powder to set it and avoid further smudges.

9. Lip Balm

A lip balm moisturizes your lips and keeps them soft and supple. The skin on your lips is thinner than your facial skin. Using a lip balm will ensure that your lips are well hydrated and it also heals your dried and chapped lips faster and more effectively. Most of the lip balms these days, have SPF in them. This will help protect against the harmful rays of the sun. Maybelline’s line of lip balms are a must-have. Most of them are beautifully tinted with colorful and handy packaging

8. Mascara

Batting eyelashes, flirty smiles. A mascara is a must-have to add oomph to any of your looks because nothing beats long, luscious, lashes. Go on and add some length, drama and volume to those eyes.

7. Concealer

A concealer is a must-have for that much talked about blemish-free, spotless, one-tone skin. Not all of us are lucky enough to be blessed with the perfect skin. Those marks from pox and those teenage pimple spots need to go. And a concealer helps you with just that and so much more. Before using a concealer make sure you wash your face and moisturize it. Choose from a variety of concealers available, according to your needs. Remember to top the concealer with a light layer of translucent powder to set it.

6. Eyebrow Pencil

Your eyebrows frame your face and most of us tend to neglect it. Use an eyebrow pencil to fill in the gaps of your groomed brows. Use light, short strokes to avoid an unnatural appearance.

5. Red Lipstick

You simply cannot go wrong with the classic red lipstick. It is simply a matter of finding that perfect shade to suit your complexion and keeping the rest of the makeup to a bare minimum. Red lipstick tends to bleed, so fill in lips with lip liner first. However, my best friend strongly recommends Colorbar’s Lip Crayon as the perfect solution to avoid bleeds. It has a creamy texture and is very highly pigmented- so only one swipe is required to get full coverage. From wine red, brick red, and coral to orangey-red and blood red-there are so many options, so take your pick and paint the town red!

4. Blush

Blushes come in two formats, powder and cream. The powder is quicker and easier to apply and suits oily skins. Cream-based ones are best for dry to normal skin and sits smoothly on dry, patchy cheeks. On correct application, a blush can give you a rosy natural glow and highlight your cheekbones. Make sure you purchase some quality blush brushed for perfect application. Suck in or smile real hard to help you find the apple of your cheeks and apply the blush to the center of the apple blending the colour along your cheekbone.

3. Compact Powder

Like the blush, compacts come in two formats, loose and pressed. A small compact of pressed powder is perfect for touchups during the day while loose powder compact is perfect to set your makeup and make it last longer. Pressed compacts tend to be on the heavier side making loose powder a better option for Oily Skin.

2. Eyeshadow

“If eyes are the windows to each individual’s soul, eye shadow is the colorful path that leads to them.” Eyeshadows come in powder, pencil, cream forms, making it extremely flexible and versatile. You can go with colors that complement your eye color and skin tone or for a more dramatic look, choose a brighter shade of color that pops.

10. Eyeliner

An eyeliner when compared to a kajal, is much easier to apply once you get the hang of it. It can give you the drama you are looking for without much time or effort.
