The Make Up Essentials That Every Woman Should Have

By Evelyn Ohoilei

Looking beautiful always is one goal every lady loves to achieve. Looking good and receiving complements from people is one thing they never get tired of. I guess that explains why a woman spends quality time at her dressing table wanting to impress.

Makeup is one major area women love to invest in. I have heard a couple of ladies say they feel confident anytime they wear makeup to an event. While some ladies are pro at their makeup, others are lost and don’t even know where to start from. So, for their sakes, I’ll be dropping 5 essential make-up items that must be found in every lady’s makeup bag whether you are a pro or not.


A lot of ladies should be flogged for not having this in their make-up world. Lol.

A primer is an especially important product in make-up which should not be overlooked. It creates an extra layer between your skin and makeup. Priming products are mainly used to help makeup stay longer and smoothen the skin’s surface. Different primers can be used on the face, eyes, lips, and even lashes. It’s time to repent if you have been applying your make up without the primer.

Foundation is a liquid or powder makeup applied to the face to create an even, uniform color to the complexion, cover flaws and, sometimes, to change the natural skin tone. I’ll suggest you go for a light or airy liquid foundation which matches with your skin color as I am positive that “cakey” make-up isn’t what you are trying to achieve.

Eyebrow Pencil
Brow pencils are essential in any makeup kit. With just a few flicks of a wrist, a good brow pencil helps define your eyebrow and serves as an eye linear which helps you slim down your makeup bag against too many items.

This is a particularly important item that must not be missing in a makeup bag. When selecting your powder, you must carefully consider that which matches with your skin color. You don’t want to come out looking too bright or too dark.

Mascara is a cosmetic commonly used to enhance the eyelashes. It helps darken, thicken, lengthen, and/or define the eyelashes. A thin layer of mascara is what you need to have that spotlight look and make your eyes stand out. It has prominence being in a make-up bag.

A lip gloss or a lipstick
Lipstick is a cosmetic product that apply color, texture, and protection to the lips while lip gloss is a product used primarily to give the lips a glossy luster, and sometimes to add a subtle color.

Lip gloss makes your lips attractive, looking as natural as possible. You can wear it to the church, office, hangout, corporate photoshoots, etc. A lipstick or lip gloss should never be found missing in your make-up bag. Invest in different shades and colors.

With these few items, you are good to go with a simple makeup look
