We ladies love make-up. No matter how simple or basic you are, you will use powders either compact or translucent and lip glosses. Investing in good quality & well matched shades are really important when shopping for make-up. Some people invest in tons of cosmetics as a product junkie and some minimalist don’t because they are looking for a make-up routine or products to swear by or something. Ensure your make-up essentials are never BASIC. You really don’t have to break to bank to get high quality. There are some affordable good products that are inexpensive.
