There is a standard kit of makeup and beauty products that most women wear: eyeshadow, mascara, and even primer have become everyday items used by women across the country. While consumer knowledge of beauty products is wide, there are some products that could easily revolutionize your makeup bag that you're not yet using. Here are ten of the most impresive:
If you're looking for a near-indelible waterproof mascara, tubular mascaras are for you. Instead of painting your lashes, products such as Blinc coat your lashes in tubes that cannot be removed without a combination of pressure and water. Once left to dry, the formula stays put all day and night resulting in a completely different mascara experience.
Many women use their fingers or a foundation brush to apply their base, while it's effective, you'll be shocked at the finish you get from a buffing or stippling brush. Whether you want a very subtle finish or full coverage, a buffing brush allows you to control not only how much product is going on your skin but also how it's blended.
Inner Eye Liner
If you're fair skinned, finding a near invisible eyeliner is close to impossible (darker skinned women have it easy here), but using a skin-toned liner can help brighten and open your eyes without the harsh look of a white line. It's the perfect way to enhance a no-makeup look.
Whether you have oily eyelids or just have problems making your eyeshadow last, an eyeshadow primer will be your savior. It provides a tacky base for your shadow and is infinitely more effective than a standard primer or foundation.
Some women have been powdering their lashes for years to add bulk and volume, and mascara/primer duos have been on the market for years, but the mascara addict's new best friend is a lash enhancing top coat which is painted on after mascara application for added length and volume.
This invisible product is not only perfect for subtly enhancing your lashes in a no-makeup look but can tame unruly brows or baby hairs around the hairline as well.
Reverse Lip Liner
The lip liner look is so 80s, and not in a good way, but sometimes you get a lipstick that feathers or fades and a reverse lip liner can solve that problem. Also useful for gloss lovers, this product keeps your lip color in place and is especially helpful if you're redrawing your lips slightly.
A serum or balm that tightens and brightens your skin can completely lift your look. You shouldn't use them all the time, but use it once in a while and you'll definitely notice the difference.
Finding a color that you love that can be used on your eyes, cheeks, and lips can speed up your makeup application and revolutionize your kit. Even in the worst rush, you can apply a bit of mascara and let this product do the rest.
Complexion brushes have been staples of the skincare world for years but have only become widely popular in recent years, whether you get a powerful electric version or a small, soft, manual brush, you'll immediately notice a change in texture from your skin.
