Any woman who has a love for cosmetics can vouch for us when we say that their makeup bag is the holy grail of all their belongings. This much is true whether that’s for a night out with their girlfriends or a routine work day. The makeup bag is a simple yet important pouch that holds the key to retouching finishes after hours of activity. Of course, we believe that no makeup bag is complete without any of the following must-have items.

Essentials in Your Makeup Bag

#1 Mascara

Whether it’s a drugstore-bought mascara or a high-end product, this particular cosmetic should ALWAYS be in your makeup bag! You just never know when your eyelashes start to look worn down which calls for a reapplication!

#2 Blotting Sheets

Combat that shiny looking skin by using thin blotting sheets. This simple accessory can carry you through the day by keeping your skin matte and alluring all day long.

#3 Foundation

Like it or not, our foundation is the key to flawless skin. It balances your complexion in a way that masks the skin’s redness. After a few hours, foundation tends to look cakey especially when you have oily skin. The best way to fix this is by removing the excess oil using blotting sheets and reapply the foundation again.

#4 Blush

After applying your foundation, we’re sure that you’ll be needing to apply your blush. Add this on to get that natural flush effect on the cheeks.

#5 Lipstick or Lipgloss

Let’s face it. As much as we want our lipstick/lipgloss to stay, they will wear off throughout the day. So unless you have a magic lip product that manages to stay on all day long, this is a must-have item in your makeup bag!

We think that these are the essential cosmetics that you should carry around with you at all times! If there’s any other makeup that you cannot leave your home without, feel free to let us know in the comment box below!
