If you’re very new to make up then you will find the world of cosmetics very overwhelming. When you’re just a beginner then the best way to start is to go about with the basics to get your beauty bag full. Use a checklist as your guide and make sure you don’t get too excited and start filling your bag with different types of the same product. Given below are a few must have makeup essentials:
- Foundation: One of the basic makeup essentials is foundation. Foundation evens out your skin tone and gives you an even toned flawless complexion. However, if you don’t like the feeling of foundation on your skin, you can always opt for a tinted moisturizer.
- Concealer: It is very important to keep a concealer incase you don’t like foundation. It hides blemishes and under eye circles effectively. Nowadays you get pure organic vegan makeup products that are cruelty free and safe.
- Bronzer/Blush Duo: A bronzer Blush Duo makes things very easy for you. Blush adds a rosy tinge to your cheeks and bronzer adds a golden and polished look to your face and you can get both in the price of one.
- Highlighter: A highlighter comes in both powder and cream form. Some people prefer the cream over powder because they claim it’s easier to work with and doesn’t leave a glittery mess around. The powder version usually has chunks of glitter that doesn’t stay for long. The cream version on the other hand, blends beautifully with the skin.
- Eyeshadow palette: The eyeshadow palette is a very important part of basic make up. If you’re a beginner you don’t need more than one palette for daily use.
