When I was four years old, I carried around a tiny purse filled with bottles of glittery nail polish (I obviously took my job as a girl very seriously when it came to beauty products). When I turned 13, I threw away anything that had sparkles in it and spent my entire allowance on black eyeliner. And at 18, my obsession with red lipstick began.
It’s no surprise that as we age, we change. Our styles, our looks and our needs. (Though my 4-year-old self was definitely onto something; I’m still obsessed with beauty products.) Let’s face it — I believe there are essential beauty products, and beauty tips, every woman should own and know. And once she turns 20, it’s not just about trends anymore, but how to maintain that youthful glow that came so easily just a few years before. Lucky for us, there are a ton of products willing to help in that department …
Now that I’m in my 20s, my problem is this: I have a tough time weeding out the products I don’t need, and making sure I own the ones I do. So with the help of some hairstylists, makeup artists and skincare experts, I put together a list of beauty products every woman over the age of 20 must have in her stash.
So let’s get down to business. Check out this expert-approved list of beauty products — from makeup to hair products — every woman needs to own. You might have some of them already, but you’ll be surprised to find out what you’re missing.
