I know so many women in their 30s and 40s who rarely wear makeup and still manage to look beautiful. But even the most carefree and natural woman would look better with just 3 beauty items in their arsenal: Concealers, lip gloss and mascara.
Concealer covers up any dark undereye circles or spot covers a pimple or red spot on your face. Lip gloss adds some shine and is an instant lip plumper (get a colored lip gloss for extra pop) and mascara will open up the eye.
And unless you have naturally rosy cheeks, I would suggest adding blush to your arsenal as well. Just a little dab on the apples of your cheeks will brighten your complexion.
