8 Makeup Kit Essentials

Good makeup is a girl’s best friend. It’s the one thing that can make you look and feel like a million bucks, no matter what your skin type or budget. A makeup kit is one of the most important things to have in your purse. When you’re on the move, it can be difficult to keep up with your daily beauty regime. So here are some basic makeup kit essentials that will help you look good on the go.

●    Foundation 

The foundation helps even out skin tone and adds coverage to any blemishes or redness that may be present on your face. If you don't want to spend a lot of money on foundation, consider using a tinted moisturizer instead — it has many of the same benefits as foundation but is much less expensive!

●    Eyeshadow Palette

The second item on my list is an eyeshadow palette because it saves you time from having to put on individual shadows and blending them out every day. A good eyeshadow palette will have different shades of neutral colors like browns, gray, and blacks so that you can create different looks with just one palette. You can even get palettes with shimmery shades, as well as matte shades, which makes it even more versatile!

●    Mascara

Mascara is one of the most versatile and useful beauty products. It’s used to enhance your lashes, making them appear longer and fuller. The mascara wand can be used to curl your lashes while applying the product to them. It’s also used to make your eyelashes appear darker or brighter depending on the color of the mascara you’re using. Mascara is also used for those who have sparse or thin lashes because it helps give them volume and length.

●    Powder

The powder is used to set your concealer and foundation so they last longer throughout the day without creasing or smearing. You can use powder after applying all of your other makeup as well — just dust some over your entire face for an extra dose of staying power!

●    Brush

The best brush for foundation application is a large and soft brush, which will allow you to apply the product smoothly and evenly across your face. The brush should be dense enough so that it picks up and applies foundation well without absorbing too much product. If possible, opt for one made with natural hair rather than synthetic ones, as they blend better with natural skin tones and are less likely to irritate sensitive skin types.

●    Lipstick

Lipsticks come in different colors and finishes, which means you can find the right one for your skin tone. If you're fair-skinned, choose lipstick with a pink undertone, while those with darker skin should go for red or maroon shades. If you want something less bold but still pretty, opt for neutral colors such as browns and pinks.

●    Blush and Bronzer

If you're a makeup novice, you've likely used blush and bronzer. These two products are great for creating a healthy glow on your face. Blush is often used to give the apples of your cheeks a rosy hue, while the bronzer is applied to cheekbones and temples to give them a sun-kissed look. To create the perfect glow, you should learn how to use these two products correctly.

●    Concealer

Concealer is another must-have in any woman's makeup kit because it can help cover up dark circles under the eyes or blemishes on the face. Concealer works by filling in fine lines and wrinkles so that they don't show up as prominently on your face anymore. However, remember not to overdo this product because too much concealer can make you look older than you are!


While you might not be able to fit everything on this list into your makeup kit, you can certainly use the lists as a guideline of what you should bring and know. Each one of these kits contains the essentials, but there is plenty of room for customization as well. Make sure you take into account the number of people you will be working with, as everyone's needs are different.
