I'm using the word necessities in the title very lightly because definitely you do not need everything I show you here for your make-up table lol. In real life, I'm really not a perfectionist, but when it comes to make-up, I can get a bit of a perfectionist I mean I like everything set up in front of me, everything easy to grab & available, I don't wanna have to look for anything whenever I do my make-up, I want it to be easy & effortless, mostly to save time.
So here are a few of the things I find extremely helpful to have around your make-up area.
This one's a big one, this is my MUST HAVE in my book: A bottle of hand sanitize, I detest touching my face or eyes or my make-up brushes & products without having clean hands, it spreads bacteria, it might be infectious, you never know, so having a huge bottle of hand sanitizer right beside my make-up is just right. And I love this humongouuuus one from Lulu, I mean look at that that is going to last me forever!
Another one for the bacteria: A quick brush cleanser, gone are the days where I used to soak my brushes every week in shampoo & water & rub them, my brushes do not get that royal treatment anymore, no one has time for dat, I just spray a bit of this brush cleanser on my brushes, swirl them on a tissue paper & they're sanitized & ready to be used. I got this from the face shop.
In the background is a make-up finishing spray that I use from time to time when I want my make-up to not budge, you can find a review on it here.
On the other sider of my little container thing (that I got from home center btw) are some Q-tips & my inglot beauty sponge, found a way to store it. Q-tips are extremely helpful especially when you want to smudge or clean-up your eyeshadow.
Finally, I have my mac fix plus, foundation & a lip balm. I hardly use my mac fix plus, if anyone knows how are we supposed to use this thing please let me know? And watch out for a review on this new favourite foundation of mine here soon
That is it, I'd recommend you have a make-up remover in hand too just incase you want to start over or something. but that's taking it up a whole new level.
