Makeup Essentials For Beginners.
“I love the confidence that makeup gives me.” – Tyra Banks.
Whether you’re new to makeup or have been experimenting with it for years, having a collection of beauty essentials that will help you to create a go-to everyday look is key. It’s a lot easier to add fun or fashionable makeup products to your collection and incorporate them into your beauty looks once you’ve mastered the basics.
Makeup Essentials – Face:
1. Face Primer
While some people believe that face primer isn’t necessary, I consider it to be an essential part of my makeup procedure.
Face primers have a variety of impacts on your face and makeup, but their main goal is to keep your skin smooth and your makeup appearing fresh all day.
Foundation is undoubtedly the most difficult component of your makeup regimen to master, because you must consider not only the level of coverage you like (sheer/natural, medium, or full), but also your skin type and undertones.
3. BB Cream
I prefer BB cream to traditional foundation because it gives a more natural appearance. If you’re searching for a product with skincare advantages like moisturizing or priming, this is an excellent choice (some BB creams have primer built in).
Concealer is a must-have if you have acne, dark circles, or any other type of discoloration. Concealers are available in full-coverage and sheerer-coverage formulations, and which one you should use depends on how much you want to conceal.
Applying blush can have a significant impact on your overall appearance, and I never leave it out of my makeup routine as it transform the whole look. Blush is especially important if you’re wearing a foundation with more opaque coverage, which can leave your skin looking a little flat. Blush is available in powder, gel, and cream forms.
Highlighter, like many other beauty products, comes in a variety of forms, including powder, cream, liquid, stick, and powder/cream hybrid. Each of these forms has its own set of advantages, but for beginners, I recommend powder or stick because they are the easiest to work with.
Using the right shade of bronzer is essential if you want to achieve a sun-kissed look. I suggest going no darker than one or two shades darker than your natural skin tone, and lightly dusting it all over the high points of your face for a healthy glow, or simply in the hollows of your cheeks (below where you’d put your blush) for a more chiseled look. In either case, use a light hand and blend thoroughly.
8. Setting Spray/Powder
Setting spray/powder, like face primer, works to keep your makeup in place all day.
Makeup Essentials – Eyes:
9. Eye Primer
Not only should a good eye primer keep your eye makeup from sliding off, fading, and creasing, but it should also have a formulation that keeps colours appearing true to how they should all day.
Eye shadow is my favourite cosmetic product, along with highlighter, because it comes in so many various hues and finishes and can be used in so many different ways. Finding makeup colours and tones that match your eye colour is a terrific method to make your eyes stand out.
11. Eye Pencil
If I had to choose only one cosmetics product to wear before leaving the house, it would undoubtedly be eye pencil (or kohl). Because “eyes speak louder than words,” I believe they should always be highlighted.
Mascara has a magical way of bringing your entire eye look together, and it comes in a variety of formulas to lengthen, thicken, and curl your lashes.
While black eyeliner is frequently considered a must-have, if you have lighter skin, try brown or dark grey. Eyeliner may be applied in a variety of ways. If you’re concerned of messing up with liquid eyeliner, I recommend lining your eyes first with a similar-colored eye shadow or pencil liner, then going over that line with the liquid liner.
Makeup Essentials – Lips:
14. Lip Gloss
Lip gloss was popular in the early to mid-2000s, but has lately resurfaced, with trendy brands such as Anastasia Beverly Hills, Glossier, and Fenty Beauty all offering their own variations.
When you’re in a hurry, don’t have access to a mirror, or when the rest of your makeup is more dramatic and calls for a subtler lip, go for lip gloss.
You can’t dispute that lipstick is having a significant moment right now: whether you prefer a liquid or bullet formula, a glossy, satin, or matte finish, or a glossy, satin, or matte finish, there’s a lipstick out there to suit your preferences!
