as a woman, we are born vain and so we always want to look pretty especially to the man we love, that's why we have different make-up must haves in our bad every time we go out of the house. so What are the make-up items in your bag that you can not live without? is it lip liner, a blush-on, a gloss, a curler or an eye-shadow? i admit i love to try make-up too but since i have a very sensitive skin, the most i use to my face is a powder and a lipstick so i guess that's the make-up products i can't live without. sometimes i can't help but admire others who can put different shadow in their face without the fear of getting lots of pimples or allergies.

I would have to say my foundation if I could only choose one item. In the winter especially my skin tone is very uneven and I always look better after my foundation is on. In the summer when I have a tan, I suppose it would be mascara and an eyelash curler as my eyelashes are poker straight. Thanks goodness for cosmetics! Happy St. Patrick's Day!

i don't use foundation since i have a sensitive skin, at night i put moisturizer at my face to keep it supple and soft for day time.

In my opinion, lipstick is the most important makeup products. It's OK for you to have a plain face without making up the eyes and face. If you have used lipsticks, you already look prettier.

its true, i agree lipstick is one of the most basic yet equally important accessory that adds glory to our face.

Well that is a hard question actually. What I feel I need to use everyday before leaving the house is concealer, powder and blush. But if I had to pick a single makeup item to use and i would not have any others, I guess I would choose cream-to-powder foundation, which is not a product that I ususally use, but it's sort of a cross between powder and concealer.

I use a light powder makeup when I go out with lip gloss . Sometimes a little shadow as well . Not much for wearing make up and when I do I like to keep it natural . I myself find I will break out too .

Mascara and eyeliner. My eyes kind of disappear into my face if I don't use those. Then I look like a guy haha. Foundation would be great too, but eye makeup does more for me.

I absolutely agree! Well, for me, I should always have the basics in my purse.. A foundation, blusher, lip gloss.. Tada! But, if I have the chance to bring them all, I will always carry my makeup kit.. :)

I cannot live without my powder and lipstick. I have not tried any of the other products and do not want to try also but cannot leave my house without lipstick.

i can't really live the house without wearing any make-up. But when I'm in a hurry and i don't have the time to put all those stuffs in my face I atleast have to put face powder so that i won't get oily and lipbalm or lipgloss then after that i'm all set.

Blush on and lipstick is a must have for me. The two can easily do wonders in my face. Specially lipstick because I have dark lips even if im not smoking =(

Mascara and bronzer. i found that I used to wear a lot of foundation because I have an uneven skin tone, but bronzer is fab, I put it all over my face lightly so it works like a foundation and cover-up and then an extra layer on my check bones highlights them. Its soooo much easier to get ready in the mornings now! I love bronzer and would even give up my mobile for it!

Hi djmarion, I believe makeup could really make one to look more beautiful and attractive and also to add confidence to her. As I sweat easily so it’s quite difficult for me to have makeup frequently. Anyhow a lipstick is just enough for me. I always feel to be looked more lively after applying lipstick

I like to take my foundation, eye liner, masscara and blush. I use good lip balm because i get dry lips if i dont, so i always have nice lip balm and lip gloss too.

One make-up item that I can't (most probably) live without would be my compact powder/foundation. I have oily skin that sometimes I feel my face is so shiny already. But I try to not put it on every day cos I feel my skin's breaking out.

I have to have my lipgloss and my mascara. As long as I have that, I'm ok. I feel so naked without it. I carry much more than that with me, since I am known to change my look throughout the day, but I must have those two in particular.

for me it is lipstick, since lipstick is pretty much the only makeup I wear. I don't know why but i love lipstick. it makes my lips feel less chapped or smoother - and i feel like i made an effort to look nice for the day :) i don't even use the expensive lipsticks - just a couple shades from wal-mart i got for less than a few bucks!

I always make sure I have mascara. If I don't wear anything else I wear mascara. I also carry an eye liner, and some foundation, just in case my complexion looks sallow. I also carry some kind of chap stick type product, in case my lips look dry.
