A good natural ingredients-based moisturizer will keep your skin hydrated and also prevent your skin from dryness and cracks.

The next essential makeup item every woman should have is a lipstick, either glossy or matte. As a woman, you should always have a lipstick in your makeup bag, this is because asides from giving your lips a beautiful look, lipsticks can fill in when you are short on other makeup products.

For example, if you run out of eye-shadow or blush and you need a quick makeup, you can simply dab lipstick under your eyes and cheeks.

On the other hand, you can apply light red lipstick under your eyes to use it as a color corrector.

The importance of lipsticks cannot be overemphasized because they can transform your look with just few swipes.
