I couldn't tell you the difference between a BB or CC cream or a satin or . I love the progress I've made with my skin and going au naturale, but sometimes I do feel the need to put on a little bit of make-up for a photo shoot or work and I get overwhelmed by the possibilities. If you're like me then your make-up bag is full of products you've used once or will never use again. Stop wasting time wandering down the cosmetics aisles; I've got a list of 3 make-up bag essentials for beginners of all ages featuring great products from MAKE Beauty!
Primers are essential for getting a super smooth foundation application. If you have oily skin look for one with a matte finish your problem areas or if you're spending time in the sun look for one with SPF. My current faves are from MAKE Beauty: their Face Primer with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is great for spending time outdoors and their Moonlight Primer - which helps shield against light transmitted from electronic devices - is perfect for daily wear in an office setting.
Instead of having a million products taking up valuable real estate in your bag, find one that does the job of 2 (or 3!) like this one from MAKE. The Universal Stick is a transforming lip and cheek color stick that changes color on contact with the skin. This pale pink shade changes into a warm, sheer shade that gives a natural, sun kissed glow. If that doesn't scream "summer!" I don't know what does!
Finding the perfect shade of lipstick can be a daunting task. Just thinking about all the shades and finishes gives me anxiety. Luckily, MAKE Beauty sent me an amazing shade perfect for fall named Jakarta. This matte lipstick goes on super smoothly and lasts for hours. I've already worn it twice and I see myself wearing it every day once September rolls around. Bonus tip: line and fill your lips with a matching lip pencil to make your lipstick last longer.
