As a generation addicted to technology, we’re all guilty of having erratic sleep schedules. Invest in a good concealer to help you fake a good night's’ sleep! We love how creamy and easy to blend this M.A.C Pro Longwear concealer is. If a concealer is all the makeup you’re going to wear - we recommend looking for one that matches your skin tone exactly. A shade lighter works best when you would be wearing foundation.
A quality brush set is essential for that flawless base. Transform your makeup game with a set of multi tasking face brushes. These brushes by Real Techniques are made from the highest quality synthetic brushes that will last you forever. The set has every brush required to ensure you have the right tools for every occasion.
No makeup kit is complete without a blinding highlight! For that lit from within glow, a good highlighter goes a long way. Look for a highlighter with more sheen and less shimmer. In this palette by theBalm you have a highlight, blush and bronzer all in one! Use it to highlight the inner corner of your eyes, your cheekbones, nose and forehead. Moderation is key here though, we don’t want to look like a grease ball!
