    What's the beauty equivalent of a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear? Carrying around a purse loaded with 20 pounds of lipstick and perfume options, only to find yourself stuck without eyeliner to refresh your look for your evening date. The solution: having a well-edited makeup bag filled with five basics. Add your regular foundation, concealer, and any tools, and you can create myriad unique looks. Don't believe us? We'll prove it!

    Using only five key products — a burgundy lipstick, a cream bronzer, a rosy blush, an espresso eyeliner, and a powerhouse mascara — and a little ingenuity, we put together seven unique, flattering makeup looks. From glowing and natural to vampy and smoldering, click through to learn how to get the most out of fewer products — and never be weighed down (or unprepared) ever again.

    Modeled by Natalie Finch; Makeup by Andy Colvin.
