10 Beauty Must haves!!

Hey hey everyone!

Hope everything is going good with all of you!! I’m swamped with essays and works and all of that…gonna have a crazy week!

Anyways, today I bring you a bit of a different kind of post! I know I haven’t really written many posts about beauty, even though I do like it a lot (I have a make-up degree and everything!) I just am quite a very low-key and don’t really find myself using many products, specially all at once!! 

But anyways, I decided to bring you what I think are the Top 10 Beauty Must-Haves for every girl out there!

Beauty Must-haves

  1. Tinted Moisturizer or Foundation! I actually do wear this one from MAC in the shade Light (the lightest of them all) and do like it a lot! On a day to day basis I tend to stick to the tinted moisturizer and usually only grab the foundation on a special occasion (although I don’t have any right now and am on the hunt for one!). It evens out your skin and moisturizes at the same time!!
  2. Body lotion or body butter! I think every girl (and boy!) should keep themselves moisturized!!! And don’t let yourself be fooled by very “baby-feeling” skin (as I like to call it)! I never thought I needed a lotion, until I tried one for the first time!!
  3. A neutral eye-shadow quad! If you have this, you can do many different looks that apply to day and night! Specially if you’re a beginner with make-up, I would advise you to stay with the neutrals and venture to the colors afterwards when you feel a bit more confident in using them (trust me, I still have a very vivid red shadow that I hardly ever use…)
  4. Mascara! I may go out of the house with a bare face, but my mascara has to be put!!! I actually do use this one as well, it’s from Maybelline and I LOVE it!!
  5. A GOOD moisturizer! I never cared about brands (and still am a bit like that) until I got this Moisturizing Gel from Clinique as a present! It’s made a whole difference on the way my skin looks!!
  6. A good lip balm!! My favorite is from Carmex, with no special flavor ..well, it’s minty, but as far as I know that’s the “natural” flavor they have!! It’s really good for my lips!!
  7. An Exfoliator! Yes, it makes wonders! You can make your own at home with some sugar and water, but I feel it’s to harsh on my skin and I prefer a store bought one! You can also make some face masks a couple of days a week and get the same results!
  8. Eyeliner!! In any color you like! The most common are black and brown, but I’ve been sporting a grey one from @essence so it doesn’t really matter! But it does help defining you eye and if you use a white one, it opens up your eyes!!
  9. Bronzer or blush (or both!)! (the MAC powder actually should be next to the body shop one upsy daisy) I believe that a good bronzer makes you look way healthier than just the normal powder! I haven’t found one yet that I absolutely LOVE, but the one I have from The Body Shop is really good! I am just trying to get a less shimmery one for the days I want it a bit toned down =)
  10. Lipstick or Lipgloss!! I actually LOVE the Dior lipsticks!! They are a lipstick that feel like a gloss!! This can give you a bit of color and it’s the easiest way to play up your face, specially if you’re in a hurry!!
Please bare in mind these are what I think every girl should have and not just regarding to make-up! Yes, most of you would have included a concealer, but I think sometimes you can use your own foundation as a concealer (I know I do =P)

I hope you guys liked this post and if you haven’t entered my Giveaway you can still do it here until the 20th of October!

Have a great day!

    If you can't find Carmex, try finding Blistex…I think it's almost the same thing..I also have a hard time finding any of them, usually only in El Corte Ingles in Lisbon. =)

    Aw, thank you…I have you on my blogroll too!! =D
