Don't leave the house without these!

Why, hello lovelies!

These days everyone is always busy and on the run. Running from home to school, from school to work, from work to meet up with a friend, etc. In all this rush, it's important to always look good, right? So, we have created a list of five make-up essentials that every girl should always keep in her bag.

1. Concealer: A little concealer can go a long way. Unlike foundation, you don't have to apply it all over your face. Just apply a little bit over a blemish and you are ready to go! It pretty much works like magic. If you are willing to spend some money on your make-up, we recommend Liquid TimeBalm Spot Concealer by Sephora (you can get it here or in Sephora stores) or Mac Select Cover up, which Naz swears by (here or any Mac store). A cheaper option that works just as wonderfully is Invisible Concealer by Covergirl, which you can find at any convenient or drug store. Just remember to always get the correct shade or else you'll look like you're wearing a mask.

2. Face Powder: The reason face powder is so wonderful is because it's super light! It's like you're wearing nothing at all. It's perfect for everyday use. Just brush it on (we highly recommend using brushes instead of the applicator is comes with) to even out your skin tone and voĆ­la! We found that Matte SPF 15 Foundation from BareMinerals (found here or in other make-up stores) and TrueBlend Pressed Powder from Covergirl work best. Again, remember to get your correct shade! We recommend trying on the makeup samples before buying. Better safe than sorry. :)

3. Eyeliner: Eyeliner is a must have! It gives the eye the perfect definition and also defines your eyelashes. We prefer black eyeliner but if you think black is too harsh on your eyes, try brown or navy eyeliner. When it comes to eyeliner, we don't really have a preference on what kind. Different eyeliners work differently with people's skin when it comes to smudging, etc. We would definitely recommend any eyeliner from Sephora or any other high end make-up store. Covergirl or Revlon also has great eyeliner that doesn't smudge.

4. Tinted lip balm: Always have a little color or shine on your lips. Tinted lip balms are perfect for everyday use because they are not as heavy as a lipstick or lip gloss. The color and shine last all day and your lips stay moisturized! You can also layer it with lipgloss for a more evening look. We recommend Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm found in any convenient or drug store!

5. Mascara: This may not seem like an "essential" item but it does wonders for your eyes. Due to our busy schedules, we (probably like most of you) do not get enough shut eye. The best way to look fresh and well rested even if you've only slept for three hours is to apply a dab of eyeliner and then finish it off with mascara. Sometimes, when we only need to make a quick run, we skip the eyeliner all together and just go with the mascara. It opens up the eyes and makes you look alert and ready to tackle your day. We recommend Covergirl Lash Blast Volume Blasting Mascara (get it at any drugstore) because it comes with a plump brush, which discourages clumps.

Stay classy and beautiful as always,
Hera and Naz
