7 Best Makeup Bag Essentials That’ll Get You Through The Party Season
If you’re anything like us, the same old evening look of bold lips and blush cheeks can feel super stale, super fast. But, the reality is that sporting a unique look to every occasion; means adding new staples to your make up bag. And while it may sound like you’ll have to max out your credit card, a fresh stash of high-quality beauty products, doesn’t have to break the bank.
We’ve chosen seven of the best beauty buys to spruce up your makeup bag for less:
1/ Soft touch mousse
We LOVE a foundation mousse! The creamy texture is hydrating but light so your skin can breathe — and it provides excellent coverage (without leaving the skin chalky).
2/ Mattifying compact powder
This powder is one of essence cosmetic’s most popular products — and for good reason. It’s a master at absorbing excess oil and spreads smoothly over the skin leaving you with a natural-looking, matt complexion.
3/ Matt touch blush
The matt touch blush with its soft powder texture creates a shine-free finish on your cheeks, giving your complexion a pop of colour.
4/Long lasting eye pencil
Nothing gives your eyes more definition than good eyeliner. It really does the most to make your eyes pop.
5/ Volumising mascara
Really open up your eyes with superb volume. essence Get Big! Mascara extends lashes for mega volume and extreme length. Wink-wink!
6/ Ultra last instant colour lipstick
Hello, luscious lips! This lipstick range unites high-coverage and colour-dispersion, so there’s no need to keep on applying your lipstick. While the lipstick’s creamy texture has serious staying power, it’s packed with hydration so it won’t leave you with dry, cracked lips.
7/ Make up setting spray
This super useful makeup setting spray guarantees that you won’t turn into a pumpkin at midnight. Because what’s the point of a stunning new look, if it’s not even going to last? The spray makes sure your make-up sets so you don’t smudge all over the place. It also makes it last longer.
With a full range of breakthrough beauty products and the season’s hottest colours and formulas, you’ll look (and feel) great at all those summer events; and your skin will be happy too!
