9 Makeup Bag Must-Haves

We know you love your makeup and want to carry around all your options, but sadly, that isn’t possible. We’re sure your makeup bag is overflowing, but it doesn’t have to! We’ve narrowed down a few essentials that you need to stock up your makeup bag with to make your life a whole lot easier. Here are makeup bag must-haves that have truly earned their place:

1. Moisturizer


A tinted moisturizer is all you need to cover redness and even out your skin tone really fast. Its lightweight formula blends into your skin immediately and protects your skin from UV rays.

2. Foundation


Want a flawless complexion? Getting a foundation that matches your skin tone is a solution to all your problems. A high coverage foundation covers dark spots and masks discoloration, giving a perfect, flawless look.

3. Concealer


A concealer is a lifesaver when it comes to hiding imperfections. It makes your under-eyes lighter even if you’re running on few hours of sleep. It helps even out discoloration and should be carried around at all times!

4. Eye shadow

Eye shadow

No, we’re not telling you to carry around your 36-piece eye shadow palette around everywhere. You need a few basic colors to help you create a killer eye-look anywhere. You can get a small palette consisting of 3 or 4 colors like brown, beige and black. They can be matte or shimmery.

5. Brow Pencil

Brow Pencil

Full eyebrow looks are trending. They give a fresh-faced appearance and make your brows look thicker. A brow pencil is convenient to carry around and easy to use. If you’re someone who fills in their eyebrows, this is a makeup bag essential!

6. Eyeliner

The multitude of looks that can be created with an eyeliner is baffling. Eyeliner makes your eyes look more defining and prominent. There are marker liners, pencil liners, gel liners and liquid liners. Select the one you’re most comfortable using and add it to your makeup pouch.

7. Blush on

Blush on

Applying blush is probably the easiest and fastest way to make your face brighter. A quick swirl of little blush on the apples of your cheeks can make you look super-fresh. Choose a blush shade you prefer and don’t let it out of your sight!

8. Mascara


Planning to bat your eyelashes on date night? Mascara can prep your eyes right up for you. If you wish to sport a full and thick lash look, then look no further – get a volumizer mascara and coat your lashes.

9. Lipstick

The quickest way to brighten up your dull face is to apply lipstick. With so many options and colors, how can one not sport lipstick? Always keep a dark and a nude lip color in your makeup pouch.

We hope this helps you narrow down the products that need to be tossed out of your overflowing makeup pouch to make your makeup routine a lot more convenient!
