Beauty products are easy to find and almost everyone uses the same ones.  There are so many out there but how do you know which ones to use and which to stay away from? Here are some basic products for everyone from the on-the-go mom to the ultimate glamazon to have in their makeup bag.

Whether it is summer or winter, everyone loves when their skin is soft.  Moisturizer is an essential key to keeping your body smooth and looking flawless.  You can never apply too much on your hands, face, legs and arms.  This is one product that I have on me at all times as I’m sure you do too!

Sunscreen

Most people think that sunscreen is only worn in the spring and summer.  That is one completely false statement!  The sun’s rays are always out even when it’s cloudy, cold, and you’re skiing in December in Vermont!  No one wants to get wrinkles and age prematurely so use sunscreen to protect you and your body from the strong rays!

Hair Spray

Some hairstyles only last about 15 minutes — until you walk outside and it’s humid and moist out, especially in the summer. That’s why we use hair spray! — the one tool that keeps our hair looking the way it did when we first got it done.  This is a product to always carry around with you in your purse.

Who doesn’t love smelling good all the time?  What a silly question because obviously everyone loves smelling amazing!  Being able to choose which scent you like in a perfume is key.  Perfume can define a person because you can get to know what they like and what they don’t like. Perfume is also great because you can buy small bottles that can stick right in your purse for those moments when you need to smell extra fragrant.

Lip Balm

Chapped lips never look good and they hurt.  If you look in almost anyone’s purse you will always find lip balm.  It’s quick and easy to use and always helps a girl out in an emergency situation!  You can get different flavors and see which one you like best.

Mascara

When you look at a person, one of the first things you notice are their eyes.  You can always tell if someone is wearing mascara or not.  If someone is, then their eyes look bigger and pop out more!  Mascara is extremely easy to apply and can really change the way a person looks.
