As women, we are diverse when it comes to our beauty routines. Some of us spend hours getting ready, while others only need a few minutes. Sometimes we need plenty of products and tools in order to feel our best, and other times we feel confident without having done any grooming at all.

All of us have unique beauty needs, but regardless of your regime, there are some products that all women can benefit from – even if you’re really low maintenance!

Here’s a breakdown of the beauty products all women should have in their arsenal:

Dry shampoo

Have you ever said no to a last-minute invitation because you haven’t washed your hair? You wouldn’t be alone – many women schedule social events around their hair wash cycle, and with good reason. Washing, conditioning and drying one’s hair is time-consuming, and most of us do not do it every day.

Dry shampoo is an essential every woman should keep in her bathroom. It allows you to extend the length between washes by another day, and it’s a lifesaver when you’re running late or need to make an unexpected appearance somewhere. COLAB Dry Shampoo (R99.99) leaves hair feeling and looking refreshed without any white or powdery residue. It soaks up grease and leaves hair beautifully fragrant.

Hair perfume

While the majority of women cannot resist a beautiful perfume, not everyone enjoys a strong scent on their skin. The alternative is to spray perfume onto your hair, but the high alcohol content can be drying and damaging. The answer? Delicately-formulated hair perfume! Made with ingredients that are gentle on the hair but leave a beautiful trail of scent, hair perfume is suitable for every woman, regardless of hair type, and is great to carry in your handbag for use throughout the day.

Curls In Bloom Hair Perfume (R99.95) has a light and nourishing formula infused with botanical ingredients. It delicately scents the hair with green apples, lily of the valley and sandalwood, and the formulation fights frizz, leaving hair soft and nourished throughout the day.

Basic makeup items

We say “basic” because we know that not everyone likes to wear a lot of makeup. Many women prefer to keep it natural, only using a few makeup products from time to time. Whether you want a boost of confidence for a meeting, or you want to accentuate your best features, investing in a handful of key makeup items means you can polish off your look whenever the need strikes.

No woman can go wrong with mascara. No matter what your hair colour, complexion or overall style preferences, black mascara is flattering on everyone. It “opens” the eyes by lifting the top lash line and accentuates the length and volume of lashes. wet n wild Big Poppa Mascara  (R169.95) delivers outrageous volume, length and lift. Infused with castor oil, this dramatically lengthening and intensely black mascara makes even the shyest of lashes stand out.

A basic black eye pencil and eyeshadow palette are a must-have in every makeup kit. A versatile pencil allows you to create a cat eye, smokey eye, a trendy wing or just a thin line for definition. Try wet n wild MegaLast Breakup-Proof Retractable Eyeliner in Black (R74.95). Lightweight, comfortable, and long-lasting, it applies onto the lids smoothly without tugging or pulling the delicate eye area.

An eyeshadow palette makes eyeshadow application super easy as it pairs complementary colours together. A palette containing both matte neutral shades as well as a few shimmery shades ensures you’re covered for any occasion. We love wet n wild’s 10 Pan Eyeshadow Palette in Lights Off (R179.95). It features high-impact colours in matte, satin, shimmer and metallic finishes and the rich pigment and high payoff formula blends effortlessly with a soft glide application.

And last but not least, let’s not forget the lips. Keeping a couple of liquid lipstick shades in your kit will ensure you’re prepared for any occasion. wet n wild MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Hi Shine Lipstick (R119.95) combines the comfort and shine of a gloss with the high pigment of a lipstick, giving your lips brilliant, high-shine and ultra-pigmented lip lacquer to deliver a mirror-like gloss finish.

Makeup tools

Whether you apply makeup every day or only on special occasions, every woman should own a good set of tools to ensure flawless application. While there are a lot of different makeup brushes and sponges on the market, you only need a few to cover standard day-to-day makeup looks. We recommend investing in a makeup brush set like Real Techniques Everyday Essentials Set (R650.00). This set includes four brushes (a blush brush for cheeks, a crease brush for eyelids, a setting brush for powder and an expert face brush for foundation) and an egg-shaped makeup sponge with a point tip at the bottom and angular, planar portion at the top. Makeup sponge fans will love the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge (from R129.95). Its flat edge allows you to contour around the eyes and nose and its sides blend large areas of the face. You can use it damp or dry with liquid foundation for a beautiful finish.

Nail colour

Well-groomed nails instantly give you an overall polished look. Whether you prefer neutrals, bright colours or pretty pastels, wearing nail colours is for everyone! Those who have a steady hand and enjoy painting their own nails will love wet n wild’s Wild Shine Nail Colors (R37.95). Fast drying, the formulas have a high shine finish and are available in a wide variety of bright, nude, pastel and glitter shades.

If you don’t enjoy painting your nails but you love the look of a fresh manicure, then Kiss ImPress Press-On Manicure is for you. These gel nails look and feel like your natural nails, with no glue needed – simply press on and go! They are safe to use on natural nails, chip and smudge proof, and offer hassle-free removal. The set includes 30 nails, a prep pad, a file, and a wood stick. We love variants One Fine Day (R200.00) for a pretty pastel option and Memories(R200.00) for making a statement.
