6 Essential Products Everyone Needs in Their Makeup Bag


One of the best things about makeup is that it is so versatile. You get the chance to express yourself while trying out new products and ideas. However, for beginners, it can be challenging to know where to start. There are so many different items to choose from, but you want to pick out the basics first.

In this article, we are going to look at six essential products that everyone needs in their makeup bag.

Let’s get started!


Foundation is designed to help cover imperfections and even out your skin tone. However, there are a wide variety of options to choose from. If you prefer something longer-lasting, then a matte foundation can be a great choice. If you prefer a lighter coverage, then a BB or CC cream can also be beneficial. It’s all about choosing something that works for you and your lifestyle. 


Mascara is applied to the upper and lower lashes to darken and lengthen the eyelashes. Black is the most popular color choice, but a dark brown can be perfect for a more natural appearance. Curling your eyelashes can also be a great step to include, as it can mask the appearance of puffy and tired eyelids. Check out these other quick makeup tips for more advice!


Primer is one essential that you shouldn’t skip. Used before foundation, it blurs our blemishes and fills in pores for a smoother application. It acts as a barrier to protect the skin and can also help your foundation stay put for longer. Pair this with a setting spray, and you’ll have a fabulous makeup look that will last all day long! 


Lipstick can completely change up the appearance of your face and is a fun way to experiment with exciting colors. A simple nude lip is excellent for those that prefer a more natural makeup look, while a bold color can vamp things up for a party or event. There are so many different lipsticks available that there is something for everyone. From lip creams, glosses, balms, and pencils, the options are endless!

Blush and Bronzer

Blush is a simple way to add a bit of color to the cheeks, which is vital if you have used foundation or concealer. It creates a healthy glow and most commonly comes in a variety of pink tones. Bronzer is similar to this; however, it is used to add a more sun-kissed appearance to the skin.


Much like blush and bronzer, a highlight is also applied to the face to give a glow to the skin. However, it creates a more dewy effect and is applied to the high points of the face. There are a variety of color options to choose from, but it is one product that makes a big difference to the final outcome of your makeup look.

And that’s it! These were six essential products that everyone needs in their makeup bag. What do you think? Are there any other items that you would recommend for beginners?
