5 Makeup Items Every Woman Must Own | Clozette
When it comes to makeup, there are a few products that every girl should absolutely stock up on. Boho or classic, glamorous or minimalistic, no matter what your makeup style is, these are five makeup items that work with every look and every woman.

--------------------------

Foundation

Tom Ford Traceless Foundation

Everyone, and I mean everyone, needs a good foundation. A “good” foundation won’t make you look like you’re wearing makeup but instead will make your skin just look even better – like you’ve just returned from a restful holiday. The key is to choose the right shade, texture, and finish. 
Mascara 


Benefit They`re Real Mascara

The path to pretty peepers is paved with mascara. Mascara lengthens and adds volume to lashes to make your eyes look bigger and more beautiful. Make sure to restock this every three months, as bacteria can grow in dried mascara tubes leading to a risk of infection.


Eyeliner


Yves Saint Laurent Automatique Eyeliner Effet Faux Cils

Add definition, lift droopy eyes, tightline, and create drama with your eyeliner. Whether you choose to get it in a pen form or work with a gel liner and brush, this is one makeup product you should always have handy.


Brow pencil gel 


Cle de Peau Beaute Eyebrow & Eyeliner Compact

Your brows can totally transform the way you look, so pay attention to them. Fill them in with light feathery strokes with a pencil or powder one shade lighter than your natural brows. This will help define them without making them look too stark or heavy.


Red lipstick


MAC Lipstick in Lady Danger

Trends will come and go, but a scarlet pout is here to stay. Over seasons, it may change from matte to glossy to sheer and back to matte, but the red lipstick is a main stay in every celebrity makeup artist’s kit and should be in yours too. Not a fan of bold lips? Use the lipstick as a stain instead. It will add a dash of colour without overpowering your look.

What we love most about our Beauty Community is their enthusiasm for giving their personal review on not only the latest products out on the market but also their long-time favourites. And one thing they all seem to really love (aside from Makeup, of course) is Fragrances. So we thought we'd compile a quick review on some of the fragrances our Community has been posting about lately.

Annick Goutal Petite Cherie
by Paperkitties


"This fragrance is described as the unique experience of womanhood, a celebration of the many transitions in a woman's life. A mother's beautiful vision for her child, this Eau de Toilette is classy, soft yet fresh and fruity." 

Miracle by Lancome
by fifiliciousify


"This classic scent is perfect for a light and flowery everyday wear and a lovely signature scent if you're looking for one! It's quite light and hence not that long lasting so you will have to spritz it throughout the day." 



Modern Muse by Estee Lauder
by Enabelle


"Modern Muse is captivating with it's harmonious Jasmine & Wood accords. Uncompromisingly feminine yet firm, this is one fragrance for the women of today." 



Lavin Me Eau De Parfum
by cassansaurusanaesi


"If you love sweet scents then this one is definitely a perfume you would want to check out. I am totally in love with this scent ever since I got the sample size and love the packaging which is classic and elegant looking." 





Untold Eau Legere
by musicalhouses


"It's a light, citrusy-floral scent with a wearable patchouli base. It's easy-to-wear as far as perfumes go, and is feminine without being either too sweet or cloying (my pet peeves in fragrances). Not to mention that the bottle is gorgeous as well!"



Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt 
by silverkis


"Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt evokes a sense of nostalgia and transposes me to places I've loved. Ambretta seed lends a crisp freshness, whilst sea salt and sage gives the scent it's unique characteristic."
