A woman's makeup kit can say a lot about her identity. For example, you may have a nondescript black case that holds nothing but the barest essentials: an exquisitely packaged tube of lipstick, a sleek powder compact, and a modern-looking cylinder of mascara. Or maybe you prefer a bright printed pouch practically bursting at the seams with all the goodies stocked in it: cream blush, powder blush, pencil eyeliner, gel eyeliner, matte lipstick, liquid lipstick--the list goes on.

Regardless of your makeup kit personality, we do know that
there are specific beautifying items every woman must not do without. From a brow pencil for framing your peepers to a bold lip color for enlivening a bare face, here are 10 makeup must-haves. And because we know women have different approaches—and budgets—when buying cosmetics, we've included suggestions whether you're looking to save, spend, or splurge.
