When was the last time you went through your makeup bag and sorted out the products you actually need and dumped the rest? Chances are, you’re lugging around broken eyeliner pencils, an ancient bottle of foundation, and lipstick shades you’ll never wear again and that are only taking up space. Streamlining means you’ve got the best tools on hand to look your stunning best. Makeup maven Bobbi Brown shares her recommendations on the essentials every woman needs in her makeup bag.

 1. Find a natural foundation. 
Bobbi believes that come springtime, foundation should have a natural finish to it. “As the weather starts to heat up, look for an oil-free, long-wearing formula that gives your skin a soft, matte finish,” she says. “It’s important when wearing foundation that your skin actually looks like skin, not cakey and powdery.” You might want to try Almay Pure Blends Makeup, SPF 20 ($9.99,

Bobbi recommends using a moisturizer with SPF. “Great makeup starts with great skincare,” she says. Try Neutrogena Healthy Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 ($11.89,
