5 Beauty Products Any Makeup Addict Should Own

5 Beauty Products Any Makeup Addict Should Own

Once you become a self-proclaimed addict of beauty, there are a few things you definitely need to have in your collection to really fit the bill.

  1. A good neutral palette seems kind of like a no brainer, but any addict knows the importance of a catch-all palette that's dependable and easy to take on trips. The first Urban Decay Naked Palette is my usual go-to, but I'm also a huge fan of the ButterLondon "Natural Charm" ShadowClutch if I'm looking for something a bit smaller. Both have a great range of shades that work get together or just on their own if you're in a hurry.
  2. Tinted moisturizers and other not-really-foundation products. There's just something about a barely there base like the bareMinerals Complexion Rescue that makes no-makeup-makeup days a snap. I constantly get compliments for how put together I look without having to wear tons of makeup, yet little do they know how much I'm actually wearing. The IT Cosmetics You Skin But Better CC+ Cream is another product that fakes perfect skin without having to pile on the products
  3. Contours to step up your whole makeup game. I felt like I was stepping into the big leagues when I picked up the NYX Contour Palette. If you're addicted to makeup and haven't given contouring a go, you definitely need to muster up the courage and blend like crazy. Just a little bit of product on an angled brush in the hallows of my cheeks works for me. 
  4. Liquid lipsticks to get you out of your regular lipstick rut. There's always something fun and not-so-scary about venturing past regular lipsticks and testing out different options. The Too Faced Liquid Lipsticks and the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks are great options if you're looking for a seriously impressive color range and intense pigmentation. 
  5. Setting sprays seem like one of those nonsense products until you've actually tried one. I swear by the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray and really need to pick up another travel size because I feel silly lugging this bad boy around on trips (doesn't mean I don't do it still). Only makeup addicts would faff with yet another step to their makeup routine, but setting sprays make all the difference. My makeup lasts longer and looks more seamless with just a few spritzes. 
What products do you think every makeup addict needs?
