Buying new beauty products can be hard to resist, but it all comes down to making the right choices and putting quality over quantity. There’s no need to double up on certain makeup essentials because one is more than enough – and that happens to be the case with these five.

Eyeshadow Palettes

Eyeshadow palettes are the most beautifully designed makeup product, and it’s hard to resist a drew of a new one, but one palette with versatile color choices is realistically all you need.

Powdered Products

Other powdered products, such as setting powders, blushes, and bronzers, also shouldn’t be bought in duplicates. Just like eyeshadow palettes, they’re pretty versatile and have a long shelf life.

Foundations & Concealers

As long as you find a foundation and concealer in a shade that works for you, there’s no need to double up on them, especially since they have a pretty short shelf life.


Unless your eyelines come in different colors, there’s no need to have more than one. The tricky thing about them is that they’ll dry out after a while, especially liquid liners.

Makeup Brushes

One good set of makeup brushes is pretty much all you need, and you should only consider buying a new one once they become old and damaged.
