Tinted Moisturizer: Add a little sheen and give a little coverage to you skin with a non-clogging tinted moisturizer. Along with sun protection and flawless finish, an easily absorbed moisturizer also preserves the natural oil balance in your skin. If the summers went by without you getting too fixated on any particular one, try the Aveeno Positively Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 30 and natural soy complex($16-$18).
Blushes: These are definitely a girl’s best friend or two best friends because you need one in cream and one powder, depending on the weather. I prefer powder going into fall/winter and creamy ones for summers. Make sure that at least one is a natural looking color close to your skin tone like soft rose or peach. The other can be a bronze or something more dramatic for an evening look. Neutrogena Healthy Skin Blends Sheer Highlight delivers the right touch at about $12. But going over the mark a bit, we swear by Estee Lauder Signature Cream & Signature Powder blushes for about $26 each. Apply in moderation and blend the blush well to not look amateurish.
Eye shadow: Make your peepers look outstanding, either with dramatic hues or smoky shadow or just add an au-natural touch for daywear. But whichever way you look at it, eye shadow does make your entire look. We like super pigmented ones that build in color easily like Bare Escentuals Mineral eye shadows at about $13 for each hue or the L’Oreal HIP Bright Duos Shadow with two colors and the staying power of more expensive brands at just $8.
Mascara and eye pencil: Both are extremely essential for opening up your eyes and adding definition. Pencil should be in brown or/and black depending on the look you want to create and look for smudge and water proof products. Drugstore brands like Maybelline work very well for this everyday beauty essential with the Maybelline Lash Stylist Comb waterproof mascara ($15) and the Maybelline Cream eye pencils ($6).
Make-up remover: If you are going to wear make-up, removing it is an absolute must at the end of the day. The Zinn Beauty Velvet Facial Cleansing Milk replenished with its rich formula as it cleans. While go the go try cleansing towels instead like the Purity Facial Cleansing Cloths ($20).
