Every girl has that one product in her makeup kit that she just can’t live without. It could be your favourite lipstick or your trusty mascara, a simple black kajal pencil or a good ol’ lip gloss to amp up absolutely any look. This everyday makeup product is a true MVP in our beauty bag. And while that may differ for everyone, there are certain products that need to be in your everyday basic makeup kit. Whether you’re a “no-makeup” makeup girlie or a full-on glamazon, here’s a list of 9 everyday makeup products that need to find a spot in your basic makeup kit


We’re starting off with the long-lasting makeup essential, a primer. It is the underrated hero you need in your basic makeup kit to keep your makeup look intact for hours at a stretch. The basic function of a primer is to help smoothen out your base before you go in with your foundation and concealer. If you have oily skin, we recommend going for a matte primer; and if you have dry skin then a hydrating primer can work wonders for your base makeup. 


While a powder or cream foundation works just fine too, there’s nothing quite like a liquid foundation. Getting that flawless, even-toned complexion comes with having the right shade of liquid foundation in your makeup bag. Opt for a medium to full coverage foundation for days when you need a heavier makeup look. If you’re one who likes to keep the base light, then opt for a sheer coverage foundation, this will give you just the right amount of coverage while still evening out your complexion. 

Feeling like giving foundation a pass today, but still want a little boost for your complexion? These light coverage base products will come to your rescue. BB and CC Creams are best to cover blemishes, pigmentation, discolouration, and/or dark circles without the heaviness of a foundation. Add one of these to your natural makeup essentials list and it will keep you covered (literally!) 

To ace your base, there’s one more everyday makeup product that you absolutely need to have on you — a concealer. A foundation can give you a flawless base, but a concealer will work wonders in covering your blemishes and dark circles. The trick to get the best out of concealer is using a makeup blender that won’t soak up your product and blend it on your skin easily. 


The unwanted shine that shows up on your face come midday is never welcome. To keep your makeup base in place, and keep that shine at bay, always have a setting powder on in your basic makeup kit. This long-lasting makeup essential will help give you a more matte look at any time of the day; all you need to do is dab a little over the T-zone and other shiny parts of face and you’re good to go! 


Nothing adds more life to your makeup quite like a pretty shade of blush. This must-have makeup item when used in the right shade for your skin, can add vibrance to any look for any time of the day. The Simply Nam Velvet Blush comes in a variety of beautiful shades. Pick one to complement your skin and get dabbing them on your cheekbones to brighten up your look. The Simply Nam Velvet Blush can also double up as lip tint for when you’re in need of a quick touch up on the go! 


While an eyeliner takes a lot more effort and time to get right, a mascara can do the same job in seconds. This must-have makeup item is going to be your companion on days when you don’t have time for an extensive routine but still want your eyes to pop. Just a coat of waterproof mascara is enough to get you looking awake and ready to take on the day. The Simply Nam Clean Lashes Waterproof Mascara is the everyday makeup product you need to have in your bag at all times. Available in two colour variants, black and deep brown; pick one (or both) to flaunt fuller lashes in just one swipe. 


Another basic must-have makeup item you need to have in your bag is a good ol’ kajal. The Simply Nam The Ultimate Kajal is sure to become your new favourite, thanks to its rich colour and built in smudger & sharpener that make it so convenient to use. Use it on your waterline or over your lids to create iconic looks anytime, anywhere. 


A dash of colour to make your pout pop is always a good idea. Every girl has her favourite lipstick shade in her basic makeup kit at all times. Lucky for you, Simply Nam’s Lip Range has a shade to match everyone’s vibe. Whether you’re a matte girlie or someone who loves a hydrating lippie, one who loves a pretty red pout or one who likes to keep it neutral with a nude shade; Simply Nam’s range has got it all. 

With all these 9 must-have makeup items in your bag, you can get dolled up and ready to go at any time and anywhere. But just having these everyday makeup products aren’t enough; to get a flawless makeup look, you need more than just these products. A flawless look comes with using the right tools at the right time. Here’s a few makeup accessories & care essentials you need to add to your basic makeup kit

  • MAKEUP SPONGE/BLENDER - A seamless base requires a lot of blending (and of course, the right shade of product). Pick a makeup sponge that helps you do that without wasting your product. The Simply Nam Velvet Microfiber Makeup Sponge helps keep product absorption to the minimum and helps you get that flawless, airbrushed finish too! 
  • MAKEUP BRUSHES - Proper application of the product depends not only on your blending skills, but also on the tool being used for it. Check out Simply Nam for the best makeup brushes for beginners and professionals alike. 

  • MAKEUP REMOVER TOWEL - The pre and post care processes of your makeup routine are just as important as the steps in between. The first step in getting your post makeup process started is to clean up. Make micellar water your best friend, or opt for a cleansing balm or oil, depending on your skin’s needs and make sure to wipe it off well with the Simply Nam Makeup Remover Towel. Never rub your face vigorously after removing your makeup, this could do more harm than good in removing your makeup. This soft makeup remover towel will make this process as soft and easy as you can imagine! 

Now all that’s left to do is to go grab all your basic makeup kit essentials from Simply Nam now!
