It's easy to hoard all the makeup that you want, but the reality is that it's impossible for you to maximize every item. You'll probably forget about a certain lipstick or eyeshadow palette, and you'll just be disappointed when you discover that they've expired. But when you splurge on high quality essentials, you'll have less clutter and spending your money will be guilt-free. Think having a well-edited makeup kit that can take you from a simple no-makeup look to a full-on glam look. Sounds wise, right?

To get you started, see our list below:

1. Primer

This smoothens pores and fine lines, and keeps your foundation looking flawless all day, especially for special occasions, like weddings and parties. Get one without silicone to let your skin breathe.

2. Lightweight foundation

You can wear this for everyday because it doesn't feel heavy on the skin. If you need more coverage, simply build it up with thin layers.

3. Finely-milled face powder

Set your foundation with a veil of finely-milled powder for a soft, shine-free finish that still looks like skin.

5. Bronzer and highlighter

It can be taxing to contour every time with a matte bronzer, but this can be a sub for blush and eyeshadow, too. A champagne colored highlighter, on the other hand, can grant glowing skin and can also be used as an eyeshadow.
