I had a little conversation the other day. It was pretty eye-opening and enlightening and it went something like this:
Friend: "You know, you should do a post about all the general products that girls should have to comprise the best makeup bag."
Me: *Chuckles* "Meh, I think that's information that pretty much everyone knows. Everyone knows they should have mascara, powder to set the face, primer, blah, blah, blah blah.
Friend: *Blank stare* You'd be surprised. And...I should use (such and such) product?
One little makeup chat and I saw the light. I realized that sometimes I don't write posts just because I think it's general knowledge or not interesting enough. I compare it to this: I've dabbled around in playing tennis and attempting (and miserably failing) different hairstyles. BUT that doesn't mean I would know all the awesome-tastic gadgets to put in my ultimate tennis bag or hair kit. I have to realize that not everyone is weirdly obsessed with makeup and attempts to inject it into their veins on a daily basis.
So I took my friend's advice. I created an ultimate makeup kit checklist with essentials and suggestions of my favorite, most used, tried-and-true products. You can take this checklist with you as an easy reference next time you go shopping. Check off what you already have and hone in on the ones you still need.
I use the word need lightly, by the way. Do you really NEED every single product category on this list? Of course not. BUT this is after all, called the ultimate makeup kit for a reason. With the help of this master list, you'll be ready to start creating beautiful makeup looks whether you are a beginner or a cosmetic guru.
