Makeup Essentials

Today, we will discuss beauty tips, basically, what should every makeup bag contain? Carrying makeup to places is really difficult, isn’t it? The huge overflowing makeup pouches that don’t fit in your travel suitcases. Troublesome? I think very.  Ever tried to reach out to the bottom of your makeup bags and see what kind of junk you’re lugging around with you?

New to makeup? Cannot figure out what to keep and what to trash? Fear not. We can help. We have below 8 essential products that you absolutely must have in your makeup bag. And our suggestions as to what brand you should start with.

1) Tinted Moisturizer 

Running errands or for a date night, a tinted moisturizer will give you flawless coverage with zero fuss and without looking overdone. Use it all over to cancel out redness. Also, the amount of color pigment used in a tinted moisturizer is usually less than a foundation. 

And not only that, but tinted moisturizers have more humectants, so they hydrate your skin better. Go with a tinted moisturizer that is non – comedogenic to not clog your pores.

Our Suggestion:   Lotus Herbals Nutra glow Daily, Tinted Moisturiser SPF 25
Price:  Rs. 475 for 50 ml.

    A lightweight tinted moisturizer that provides a hint of skin-perfecting color with just enough coverage to hide the appearance of imperfection. 

    Use any time of the day, be it the morning before applying makeup or evening after removing makeup to achieve a polished look while keeping the skin hydrated day long. 

    This tinted moisturizer with SPF 25 gives a glowing skin with a brightening effect and gives sheer coverage.

There are 3 different types of concealers: Stick, Cream and liquid.

    Liquid: The liquid kind is quite versatile when it comes to coverage as it is buildable and it ranges from light to full. Basically, If you have any normal, combination, oily or acne-prone skin, this is the kind you could opt for.

    Cream: The cream-based concealers are perfect for dry skin beauties. You can also opt for this if you have normal or combination skin. It just depends on your preference.
