Lipstick, blush, eyeshadow, foundation, bronzer, mascara, eyeliner, lip liner—there are a zillion beauty products on the market to choose from when it comes to making up your face every day. Amongst all of the highlighters, color palettes, and contour sets, most women have make up items they only use for special occasions—like false lashes—and others that they refuse to leave the house without, like lip gloss for instance.
Bella Sugar recently did a survey and they found the majority of women (37%) said mascara is their makeup mainstay and they’re never caught without it—probably because it’s a simple way to make the eyes pop. Coming in not far behind was concealer (34%), which we probably all know why; and on the low end of the spectrum was blush with most women saying they could totally go without a little rouge for their cheeks on a daily.
Forty percent of the site’s respondents said they use between four and six products on a regular basis, and another 28 percent use even more than that which means most ladies probably have a lot more than one makeup must-have when it comes to putting their best face forward. It seems if they had to decide though, a smooth complexion and long lashes would carry them through the day. (Thankfully we don’t have to choose!)
