One of the worst things that can happen to any woman is having their makeup fade during the course of the day. Many of us have had this happen: You leave the house feeling confident and beautiful knowing that you applied your makeup perfectly. Then by the time your lunch hour comes around, you take a look at yourself in the mirror, noticing your t-zone is oily, the mascara you applied on your lower lashes has smudged, not to mention that your lipstick has completely disappeared leaving you with a ring of lip-liner around your lips ....YIKES!

NO ONE should allow that to happen...E.V.E.R.

So, to avoid this type of beauty faux-pas from occurring, make a point of using these four neutral makeup products every woman needs:

translucent mineralized powder

ML 400 translucent white loose powder

1. Translucent/Nude Mineralized Powder

Applying a translucent white powder over your t-zone right after you have applied your foundation and concealer is essential. The loose powder will help combat shine by mattifying the skin. Another reason why a translucent loose powder is recommended is because it is completely transparent, invisible. Every woman can use this loose powder no matter how fair or how dark your skin may be. Lastly, a mineralized loose powder will create a velvet finish on your skin, allowing your makeup to appear flawless and most importantly, natural.

2. Sensation Mascara Primer

Using a mascara base or primer helps give your eyelashes a boost. Applying this primer helps sooth and moisturize your lashes in addition to helping improve lash growth. Most importantly, a high quality mascara primer will provide a smooth, clump free base for long-wear mascara application holding the mascara in place ON your lashes, NOT your skin.

Please Note: The link for the Sensation Mascara Primer is for the April Starbox, not the individual item. The Mascara Primer's cost is $15.

3. SPF Lip Balm

Sporting crusty flaky lips should be considered a capitol sin. The ultimate way in avoiding this all together is by using a clear lip balm that contains SPF. Regular application of lip balm {morning and night} will help keep your lips delicate skin hydrated, moisturized, and supple. Applying a coat of lip balm also serves as a primer for your lipstick and lip-gloss.

Please Note: The link for the SPF Lip Balm is for the April Starbox, not the individual item. The SPF Lip Balm cost is $5.

4. Tender Gloss Lipstick

Once you have coated your lips with lip balm, the next step is lipstick. One recommendation would be to use the Tender Gloss Lipstick in Basic. This shade is practically transparent with a soft nude hue which comes in handy when you want to sport a nude lip. Having this type of lipstick is also great when applied on top of bold colored lip shades, matte lipsticks and lip stains.

There you have it. Four neutral makeup products every woman needs to have in her makeup collection or portable makeup bag. Trust me, once you get comfortable and accustomed to taking a few extra minutes to learn how to properly use these four neutral makeup products, you will see A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. results!
