3 Things to Always Keep In Your Makeup Bag

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

skin care tipsMake-up is used for 2 reasons. Most use it to hide the imperfections that the sun and time have added to their faces. These include brown and red spots and contour irregularities. Make-up can disguise all these. Instead of hiding these imperfections, we at The Center for Plastic Surgery suggest correcting them. See elsewhere in our web site. The other reason to use make-up is to accentuate your positive features. For this, you need much less in the way of make-up. In fact, for this, most require,  only three things, a blusher, mascara and lipstick, three things every girl should always have in her makeup bag. Read on to learn more.


When it comes to generally looking your best, blusher is your best friend. Consider it to be your magical fairy godmother. By applying a little bit on your upper eyelids and over the cheeks accentuates the youthful appearance of your face.


Mascara is the number one way for you to make your eyes pop. When choosing a mascara for your eyelashes, ask yourself what area of concern you have. Do you want longer lashes or fuller ones? By answering this question, you can then decide whether a lengthening or volumizing mascara will do the trick. For a more dramatic look, choose a black mascara on top and a brown one on the bottom— the contrast will make your eyes stand out.


Some makeup artists might say that if you are going to have one thing in your makeup bag at all times, it should be a bright colored lipstick. By wearing a bold colored lip, you can dress up your entire look in just a few minutes. As a trend that isn’t going anywhere anytime this year, try wearing a bright or nude colored matte lipstick.

If your skin is otherwise good, you don’t need to have a million things in your makeup bag to make you stand out from the crowd. By having blusher, mascara, and a bold colored lipstick on you at all times, you can get ready for any special occasion.
