Must-Have MakeUp Items-Beginners Guide. If you are new to cosmetics, having the necessary makeup essentials is the best way to start. It can be frustrating when you’ve tried over and over to get that flawless look but can’t because you are unsure of the right tools you need.
Below are ten items you should have in your makeup kit.
Great makeup begins with great skincare. Moisturization provides the perfect base for your makeup. Not only does it hydrate your skin, but it also protects its moisture barrier.
We recommend Cerave it does not only provide 24-hour hydration and helps restore the protective skin barrier but once you apply it, your foundation and concealer will blend into your skin easily.
If you want your makeup to stay put through the day, a primer is what you need to do the job. Also if you’re worried about large pores or redness, your primer will take care of it all, giving you soft skin and minimizing the appearance of pores.
One of the best primers to start with is the POREfessional Face Primer from Benefit Cosmetics. It is a silky, lightweight, and oil-free formula that immediately lessens the appearance of fine lines and large pores.
3. Foundation and Concealer:
Just like artists who must prime before painting, you too must start with a clean canvas. After you’ve prepped your skin, the foundation is your first step, to avoid the unwanted “cakey” look.
L.A. Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealer covers imperfections, allowing you to use less foundation. When paired with L’Oreal Paris Makeup True Match, medium coverage is provided with a natural finish so blendable it’s like you can’t tell where your foundation ends and your skin begins.
When blush is used correctly, it can instantly lift up your face and give you that sumptuous, youthful radiance. It is however best to choose a color that complements your skin tone. Remember, always apply your blush with a light and gentle hand, and use soft, circular motions to blend out the color.
NARS Blush has created cult favorites that are must-haves for every kit. It gives off a natural, healthy-looking color that immediately vivifies the complexion
5. Eyebrow Pomade
Your eyebrows are among the most important features on your face. Nothing looks as good as well sculpted arches. L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Frame and Set is a beginner favorite as it’s easy to apply and smudge proof.
6. Eye Liner And Mascara
Applying eyeliner and mascara is an integral part of any makeup look. There’s really no need to fiddle around with applying false lashes as the COVERGIRL LashBlast Volume Mascara and Perfect Point Plus Eyeliner provides ultimate coverage and comfort and also expands and increases lashes.
7. Brushes and Tools
The way your makeup turns out depends a lot on the brushes that you use. This Makeup Brush Set is everything you need for contouring, blending, shading and highlighting.
Pressed powder comes to the rescue when you are in need of a quick touch-up. Carry it around in your bag because it is quick and easy to use and also helps seal your makeup. Maybelline New York Fit Me Matte + Poreless Powder works to absorb oil, mortify the skin, and minimize the look of pores.
A good lipstick shade can not only help brighten up your face but also prevent it from looking dull.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick includes the shades Blushed, Softsilver Rose, Wine with Everything (Pearl), Coffee Bean, Rum Raisin just for you to choose from.
For those nights when you’re too lazy to wash your face, makeup wipes will be your best friend.
