7 Beauty Products You Just Have to Have!

If you love watching makeup videos or reading articles related to beauty, you’ve probably noticed an arsenal of beauty products mentioned. And you likely started wondering, “what beauty products do I truly need?”

Well this article will help you find the answer to that question. There’s no need to buy every beauty product out there, so we‘ve rounded up the best of the best, that every one of you should own and use. We say this because many of us actually don’t use the beauty products they have. (Spoiler alert: You can’t expect results if you don’t use the product.) Without further ado, let’s see what beauty products deserve your attention.

Must-Have Beauty Products:

1. Beautyblender

A Beautyblender is at the top of our list for good reason! This little guy can help you create a perfect complexion. It works wonders at creating a uniform look and covering imperfections. Although many of us use our fingers, or brushes to apply their foundation and can still get ok results. Only a beautyblender will leave your foundation looking perfectly blended.

If you still haven’t tried Beautyblender, we suggest you order one now. You’ll be amazed by the results!

2. Concealer

Whether you are in your 20s, 30s, or 40s, a concealer should always be in your bag! This beauty product easily covers those slight imperfections on your face and also gives a fresh look to your under-eye area.

Dab a tiny bit of concealer in the corners of your eyes, and they will look wide-open and ready to be noticed! Here’s one of the best concealers out there. Check it out!

Note: Concealer should match your natural skin note otherwise it can emphasize flaws instead of hiding them.

3. Tinted Face cream or Foundation

If you have beautiful skin, why wear foundation? Instead, opt for tinted moisturizer with SPF 20 or more. It will still provide some coverage, while giving your skin a much needed dose of moisture.

Tinted moisturizers, such as this one from Perricone MD, are best for achieving that ‘no-makeup’ makeup look.

If you need a product that provides more coverage than a tinted cream does, foundation is the perfect choice. Be sure to choose the right shade! Fit Me Foundation by Maybelline is a go-to choice for everyday makeup.

4. Mascara

If there’s one beauty product we cannot live without, it’s mascara. Mascara always boosts your look and likely your mood. The best thing about it is that it fits into any occasion. It’s perfect for work, a night out, going to the movies, etc. Think of it as your best beauty friend.

Try this one from L’Oréal, it’s amazing. It will give volume and length to your lashes while still looking natural.

5. Matte Lipstick

We are so thankful for matte lipsticks. Compared to their nude glossy friends, these look more subtle and last much, much longer!

Our favorite colors are those with pinkish or coral undertones. This lipstick by Charlotte Tilbury looks wonderful on everyone! Wearing a subtle matte lipstick such as this one will give your face a fresh and lovely look!

6. Makeup Remover

Make-up remover is just as important as any other beauty product on this list. Without it, your skin won’t be able to breathe. Not to mention it’s best to start a make-up application on a fresh face. Removing makeup before going to sleep is a must. Buy a makeup remover for the face and one for the eyes (trust us, you need both). After you have removed makeup, use a facial cleanser to clean your face completely.

7. Facial Cleanser

 lash type

Last but not least. A facial cleanser is needed to get rid of all the impurities from the air and traces from makeup. A facial cleanser in the morning will help prepare your skin for other beauty products. Use it in the evening as well to clean your face from all impurities that built up throughout the day. Always go to bed with clean skin.

Here we have a hydrating face wash from CeraVe that will restore the barrier on your skin while hydrating it at the same time.

A Final Word

Now you have it, a list of must-have beauty products that will emphasize your beauty. But before you go, there’s one more thing we’d like to say. We know how tempting it is to buy inexpensive products in place of high-quality products. Save your skin trouble by buying a worthy product right from the start. You may spend more, but at least you’ll know that you choose the best for your skin.
