To Build Your Makeup Kit? Here’s all you need as a beginner
This is a complete makeup kit list with recommendations for you; I hope it helps make the right decision. You will find some of the best and most affordable makeup brands for beginners.
- Moisturiser and Primer
It is an important part of a skincare routine, so you don’t want to skip that part for anything. Moisturiser helps maintain healthy skin.
Primer on the other hand is like a shield between your skin and make-up. It’s totally up to you if you want to use a primer but it is recommended especially for oily skin as it will give a matte look. I don’t use a primer for my everyday look as I only use it when I have an event and I don’t want to worry about my makeup getting all smudged with oil.
- Concealer and Foundation
Concealer is applied to specific areas on the face, such as dark circles, scars, and blemishes. It is thick and as the name implies, it is used to conceal and enhance the structure of the face.
Foundation can be applied all over the face for perfecting the skin tone. It is light and acts as a base for your powder. The foundation is mostly applied first, followed by the concealer.
Try this – Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation
- Blush and Highlighter
Blush adds colour to the cheeks while the highlighter is used to brighten a specific part of the skin. It is often used when contouring to enhance or define the structure of the face.
- Eyebrow pencils and Pomade are used to fill and define the eyebrows. It brings out the appearance of the eyes. There are different shades; all you have to do is pick the shade that suits you.
- Eye shadow Palette
Eye shadow elevates the eye area; It draws attention to the eye and makes it pop. It comes in different colors and textures.
There are different types of eyeliners but I prefer the pencil eyeliner.
Mascara enhances the eyelashes; it thickens, adds volume, and strengthens the lashes.
Try this – Mary Kay oil-free eye makeup remover
- Nude and Red Lipstick
These are must-haves in your make-up bag. If you want to go for a subtle look, go for the nude lipstick and if you prefer a bold look, then go for red. You can explore other colors of lipstick.
- Lip gloss/Oil
For an everyday look, you can never go wrong with a lip gloss or lip oil. It moisturizes and hydrates the lips. You can wear it alone or use it as a base before applying your lipstick.
- Lip liner/Lip Pencil
It’s used to line the edges of the lips or fill the lips before applying lipsticks or lip gloss.
- Brushes and Sponges
These are essential make-up tools. Brushes are used to apply eye shadows and powders, while sponges are used to blend foundation or concealer to create a flawless look.
- Cotton buds/Q-tips
This will come in handy if you have applied too much makeup, and need to reduce it.
