Beauty Bag Essentials

Update : 18 Apr 2013, 02:15 PM


It's time to give that overflowing make-up bag a good spring cleaning. Throw out all those old lotions and potions you know you won't get around to using. Listed below are the three items every girl must have at her disposal.


A lot of women are still confused about how this particular product works. Think of primer as the magic formulation that prepares your face for flawless make-up application. Applying primer prior to make-up helps your foundation go on evenly and last all day.

There are as many versions of primer available as there are skin types.

Women with oily skin will definitely appreciate gel-based primers geared towards soaking up excess oil and preventing make-up meltdown. There are moisturising, blemish fighting and anti-aging formulas available as well. Pick the primer that suits your skin and say goodbye to midday reapplication sessions.


Concealing creams are a life saver when you have had a few late nights but still need to look bright-eyed and rested. The key factor here is to pick a colour that is one shade lighter than your skin tone. Otherwise you end up looking like you have sunglass tanlines!

The right concealer can camouflage dark circles and keep your eye shadow in place all day.

Dab a few dots under your eyes and on minor imperfections, set it with a light dusting of translucent powder, follow with your usual eye make-up look and you're ready to go.

Nude Lip Liner

If you haven't been blessed with desirable kissers, you can stop worrying now.

And no, that doesn't mean that you can draw on any shape you like on your lips and try to make it believable. A lipliner closest to your lips’ natural shade can help them look fuller and keep your lipstick in place for hours. Apply lipliner and blend well with a small brush prior to lipstick application.
