With almost all the beauty brands taking Kylie J.'s lead with her now iconic lip kits, we know how tempting it is to splurge your one month's worth of allowance on different shades of lippies—from edgy purples to chic nudes. But while nothing beats the excitement of swiping on a new lip color, stocking up on your beauty basics is just as important to score that covetable A+ in your beauty scoresheet. So read on and check out these beauty goodies that you need to stock up on before they fly off the shelves!
Try: Illuminating Primer P699, Flormar
Just like the skin care routine, every girl has a makeup routine that she absolutely swears by. But while foundations, concealers, and mascaras have easily become a makeup staple, a lot of girls still tend to skip out on the primer, thinking that they don't need it anyway. If you want to make sure that your makeup lasts you the whole day, fight off shine, and create a smooth base for your foundation or BB Creams, then stock up on a trusty primer because you're going to need one to achieve all that and more.

Plus, unlike your eye liners, an eye shadow primer is totally easy to apply, too!
