Your makeup bag is nothing short of sacred. But are you confused amongst the dozens of brushes, eyeliners, and lipsticks? So, how do you filter what exactly goes in the bag? Here is your guide to building the perfect makeup kit with the most essential items.
 
Base

Base

The key for acing your makeup is getting the foundation right. Ensure that you prime and moisturise your skin before applying your makeup. This will prevent patches, flakes and creasing later on. A sunscreen is equally important. So, ensure that your kit has a good moisturiser, a sunscreen and a foundation handy.
 

Eyes

Eyes

Keep a nude, black and a shimmery eye shadow handy so that you are ready for any situation—be it a sudden work meeting or an impromptu night out. Another must-have in your kit is a black eyeliner. Throw in a mascara so that you can instantly add drama to your peepers. Your black shadow can also double up to fill in your brows.
 

Blush

Blush

Blush is extremely a personal choice! Keep a colour that you like whether it is pink or gold, shimmery or flat. Try out the best shade for you or take help from professionals for the same. This is one thing that will enhance your entire look. You can even add some shimmer for some drama.
 

Lips

Lips

Many women just keep their favourite lip shade in their bags. In you daily makeup bag that you need on the go, keep one nude and a darker hue of your choice. Your nude colour will be ideal for daily wear while the darker hue will work for an occasion. You can even mix up the two for a unique look.  


 

Brushes

Brushes

Makeup these days has moved from formulas to make a giant set of brushes that you should have. If you are tool-phobic, you can apply all of the essentials with your fingers. Put a small, firm-bristled brush that you can use for concealer and foundation as well as a fluffy one for the powder and blush.
