Makeup Essentials that Every Girl Should Own

I am not an expert, but I definitely am obsessed with makeup! I have compiled a list of makeup products that I believe every girl should have in their vanity. This list includes some of my favorites makeup products and beauty essentials.

1. Makeup brushes

A quality set of makeup brushes is super important when applying your makeup. Whether you’re a makeup addict or a beginner, it is necessary to have makeup brushes to ensure that your face looks clean, not cakey. I love the Real Techniques Makeup Bushes because they are firm, thick and don’t shed.

2. Tarte Shape Tape

Tarte Shape Tape concealer is a must have if you struggle with acne or redness. The applicator is large and amazing for covering up your imperfections. I love using Shape Tape for the dark circles under my eyes. It blends easily and gives a very clean look.

3. A mascara that you love

I have used a countless amount of mascaras, but have yet to find “the one.” Right now, I am using Urban Decay’s, Perversion Mascara. I like it because it does not clump like other mascaras I have used in the past, but I wish it added more length to my lashes. Leave your go-to mascara in the comments!

4. Matte Finishing spray

Recently, I have been using a matte finishing spray to set my makeup. I love it because I have oily skin, so it makes my makeup stay on all day or night long. I am not the biggest fan of matte makeup looks, but I love the NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray. With this spray, I still get a dewy, but clean look.

5. Urban Decay Naked 2

The Naked 2 palette but Urban Decay is my #1 favorite eyeshadow pallet. I believe that every girl should have this pallet in her makeup collection. The Naked 2 is great for beginners because of the neutral colors. I am obsessed with all of Urban Decay’s eyeshadow, but if I had to pick one eyeshadow pallet to use forever, I would pick the Naked 2.
