Makeup Essentials Checklist

These basics should be the foundation of your beauty arsenal. Consider this the ultimate everyday makeup kit.

  • Concealer. Choose a creamy formula that can hide under-eye circles and cover blemishes.
  • Foundation. You don’t need to slather it all over your face—just in places where you see uneven skin tone or discoloration. If you don’t need as much coverage as foundation provides, consider a tinted moisturizer instead.
  • Blush. Look for a warm tone to add a pop of color to the apples of your cheeks.
