If you’re a girl in her 20s, it’s highly likely that you’re completely into beauty and makeup, and you know what? That’s completely fine! However, if you’re not quite sure what’s a fail and what’s the Holy Grail, just stay with us and learn about seven beauty essentials every girl needs. Enjoy!
A beauty blender
An egg-shaped makeup sponge is an absolute must-have, and the original Beautyblender is said to take your makeup routine to a whole new level. If you love using it dry, you’ll be absolutely thrilled to use it wet – it expands in size but doesn’t suck up your makeup, resulting in flawless-looking skin. Does it get better than that? We don’t think so!
A black mascara
Just a few coats of black mascara have a power to completely transform your overall appearance and give you a wide awake look, so be sure not to skip it. Even though applying this product can be a bit time-consuming, we can all agree that it’s totally worth it – we won’t lie if we say that it has therapeutic effects! If you’re not sure which one to pick, you may want to start with Better Than Sex by Too Faced – the Holy Grail of mascaras.
The iconic red lipstick
Let’s be honest – the iconic red lipstick will make you feel like a femme fatale even if you’re having a bad hair day. There’s something so attractive and irresistible about this product which can’t really be explained – it’s just the way it is, and we can’t change that. Remember that red lipstick was Marilyn Monroe’s favorite, which tells a lot about its dominance in the makeup world.
Your signature perfume
Finding your signature scent is not always as easy as it seems. It may take you years and years, but trust us – once you find it, it’ll always have a special place both in your heart and on your vanity. Needless to say, everyone will know you’ve arrived, even if they can’t see you in the crowd – your perfume will reveal your presence!
A fluffy blending brush
A high-quality blending brush speeds up the process of applying eye shadow and helps you perfect your overall eye look. A soft and fluffy brush head is absolutely essential, which is exactly what makes Sigma brushes perfect for blending. They provide a gentle application of color while softening harsh lines and smoothing everything out perfectly. You can also use them for highlighting your brow bone, which means that these brushes are multi-purpose!
An appropriate foundation
Picking appropriate foundation can often seem like an impossible mission, which tends to turn into a hot mess you can’t really decipher. When picking a foundation, make sure its color is similar to your natural skin tone as much as possible. If you get a darker one, your neck will remain pale, which creates an illusion of wearing a mask that’s more than unattractive. So, it’s much better to choose a bit lighter foundation which can be upgraded with a bronzer further on. Besides that, be sure it has SPF, so that it protects your skin from the harmful sun’s rays.
A quality face cream
We can’t emphasize enough the importance of appropriate skincare products, simply because these are the basis for everything that’s going on all over your face. If your skin is dry, you may want to get a bit thicker product that’ll provide enough hydration. On the other hand, if it’s oily, you should better opt for lightweight creams or gels that won’t make your skin feel sticky all day long!
Each of these seven products is absolutely vital when it comes to any girl’s everyday beauty routine, so make sure to have all of them in your makeup bag. Once that’s done, you’ll be able to take proper care of your skin and create simple yet really effective looks for both day and night!
