When it comes to looking gorgeous, there are a million products that claim to make us girls look gorgeous. That means your bathroom cabinet or makeup bag can easily get overloaded and you might still be left wondering how to put your face on. If this sounds familiar, get back to beauty basics with this list.

Conceal It All

Did you inherit dark circles under your eyes or wake up with a sudden pimple? A quality concealer can be an easy lifesaver. Applying to areas of need and omitting it from parts of your skin that look just fine can prevent a cakey, artificial look.

Dark Mascara

Want whiter, wider eyes and a look that says “come hither”? Mascara is your go-to. Even if you don’t have eye shadow to accompany it, mascara will amp up your look in seconds.

Whether you’re fair-skinned or naturally dark, the right blush color will add an attractive glow to your complexion. Highlighting your natural bone structure, it will give definition to your look.

Colored Lip Gloss

For a natural look regardless of what’s on your schedule, a colored lip gloss is the right choice. With just enough shine to turn heads and just enough color to be interesting, this beauty staple can be reapplied throughout the day without the risk of making a major mistake.

Makeup Remover

These four items will serve you well day in and day out. At the end of the day, you’ll need to remove them properly to keep your skin in its best condition. The most natural way to remove makeup is with water and a warm rag. Disposable makeup towelettes are another quick, easy way to remove basic beauty makeup.

If you could only have one beauty item, what would it be?

      I going out on a limb here, Erin, and I'm going to say these things probably can't help me. :)
