Owning too much makeup can be a chore at times…
If your no stranger to make-up purchasing, then it could be time to revamp your make-up wardrobe.
Most people only think of their clothing wardrobe’s when it comes to an overhaul, however having a staple makeup wardrobe could be just as essential. Nowadays thanks to the credit crunch, more people are turning to makeup when looking to try out a new look. After all a new Mac lipstick is going to cost us far less than a new pair of Louboutins…
So it’s time to bin all your crusty old makeup collections that have been lying there for years and are possibly in danger of growing a head… Here’s the top makeup staples which are essential for your makeup wardrobe. You won’t need anything else.
The Screen Siren Lipstick
Nothing creates more impact than a red hot lipstick. Red respresents the colour of love, lust and passion whereas red lips have always been a classic screen siren look. Having a gorgeous red lipstick in your makeup wardrobe is essemtial and will take you from day to night in one glamorous sweep.
Finding the perfect red lipstick can be more satisfying than a caramel frappachino, so try out different shades to find your perfect match. Here I’ve picked out some of my favourites that suit almost any skin tone.
The Early Night Concealer
We’ve all been there. One too many wines and zero hours sleep is difficult to disguise at the best of times. Your boss is looking at you suspiciously and your eyes are drooping to the floor while you casually attempt to cover up your late-night escapades with “Oh I just had an early night in with Eastenders…”
Its pretty darn obvious where you’ve been whilst your colleague sits smugly with her Touche’ Eclat perfected. In these emergency moments the one thing we’re in need of is the perfect concealer. A highlighting pen is perfect for covering up panda eyes, brightening skin and ensuring your skin is still glowing until 5pm. So this is why our staple concealer is more essential than the classic white shirt.
The Perfect Mascara
If there’s one thing that women are often on a search for in beauty, it’s the perfect mascara. Mascara is the saviour to every womans beauty woes and most people would happily go makeup free – from the little exception that is eye-opening mascara.
There are so many new mascara’s out there nowadays it can be difficult to make a choice of what to even consider. Volumising, waterproof, Lengthening, thickening, conditioning and even vibrating mascara’s. Phew! That’s a lot of choice. Here’s my pick of some of the best.
Best False Lash Effect
The Brightening Blush
A pretty shade of blush is an instant beautifier for the fair-skinned girl and her friend. Blusher gives a healthy glow to cheeks in an instant without the need for bronzer or any heavy coverage.
Nowadays there are many types of blushers out there to suit any type of skin. Dry-Skinned girls should stick to cream blushers for that dewy, fresh glow while powders and gel blushers last throughout the day. The perfect shade for everyone is a peachy-pink. It’s natural on all skin tones and doesn’t look too harsh on pale skintones or those who avoid makeup.
Smokey Eye Palette
Every girl knows a smokey eye can add drama to any look. Smokey eyes and a nude lip colour looks amazing at gigs and parties and adds an edge to any outfit. Here’s my pick of the best smokey eye palettes around.
