Make-Up Kit Must Haves
Sunscreen and Moisturiser
You should always have these two products handy especially sunscreen as this should be re-applied every two hours. Remember that the only reason why you’re putting on those expensive concealers is that you want to conceal blemishes, scars, age spots and wrinkles. With proper daily protection, we can minimize the appearance of these unsightly skin conditions. One great moisturizer you should have all the time is Argan oil. This oil has been hailed as a miracle oil for several reasons. Not only does Argan oil moisturize the skin, it heals scars and fights off wrinkles as well. Use this regularly and you’ll soon be forgetting why you need concealers in the first place.
While you’re waiting for the effects of your moisturizers to kick in, your concealer will be your best friend. Experts advise the use of dry concealers that will stick to your troubled spots.
Lip balm is definitely an essential. Make-up artists say that a dry chapped lip can pull down the over-all effect of a great make-up.
Make Up Brushes

You don’t have to acquire all the brushes used by professionals. Make-up artists say that the 5 essential brushes that you should have are powder, concealer, shadow, eyeliner and comb brushes.
