Top 10 Products to Make the Perfect Beauty Toolbox

Do you ever feel as if there’s something missing in your makeup drawer? Get your tick list out girls, because if you don’t have these ten beauty box must-haves, it’s time to hit the shops!

These are our top ten products to live and die by:

1. Blush

Whether it’s cream or powder, a quick swipe of blush is a pick-me-up for your face. Apply to the apples of your cheeks for a gentle, youthful look or hit along the crease for a svelte finish.

Blusher is so versatile – you can even use it as an eyeshadow or lipstick base.


2. Concealer

Even those with perfect skin sometimes party a bit too hard.


Concealer is a great way to hide the following: blemishes, scars, pimples, dark circles, and redness. So basically, it’s your best friend.


3. Eye Cream

Fight early signs of wrinkles with an anti-aging eye cream. It’ll smooth over any small creases you may already be developing.

It will also reduce signs of puffiness, when you haven’t had enough shut-eye. Eye cream is the perfect base for your concealer.


4. Red Lipstick

Every girl should have their signature, red lippie. Some women make the mistake of swearing off rouge, as they think red clashes with their natural skin tone,

But there is a shade of red out there for every girl, so find yours and enjoy the sexiness and confidence that comes with a pair of crimson lips.


5. Mascara

Instantly wake-up your eyes with a few lashings of mascara.

When you’ve got five minutes to put on your makeup before you have to rush to work, mascara is definitely a go-to for instant beauty. Apply more than one coat for an attention-grabbing finish.


6. Deep Conditioner

Blow-drying, straightening, and curling: our hair takes a lot of whack. Treat it once a week with a deep, sultry conditioner that’ll nourish and fortify your locks against another seven days of abuse!

Beauty salon equipment can bring your hair back to life, but if you can rejuvenate your locks at home, why fork out all that money on a stylist?


7. Face Wipes

Too tired or drunk to take care of your night time skin routine? The last thing you want to do is hit the hay with your makeup still plastered to your face – trust us, you’ll regret it.

If you feel as if you’re about to fall over with fatigue, quickly wipe your face with a cleansing towelette. No fuss. No effort. And no major breakouts.


8. Face Masks

Healthy, pampering, and easy to make at home, face masks give your skin that weekly treatment that instantly reduces your chance of zits.


9. Dry Shampoo

Busy girls on-the-go worship dry shampoo. Amazingly, it manages to make your hair appear clean and fresh, even when you haven’t been able to shower in days – hey, we’ve all been there.



10. That Perfect Perfume

We spend most of our lives finding the perfect perfume, but when we do…oh when we do…it’s a love affair that lasts forever. If you haven’t found ‘the one’ yet, get hunting.

Trust us; that bottle of your dreams is well worth the wait.
