The Essentials of Basic Makeup
For most of you, putting together a good makeup kit can be difficult and overwhelming. When there are hundreds upon thousands of alternatives to pick from, it can be difficult to know which ones will work best for you.You might be itching to dip your new brushes into a sea of colours, but before you do, use this list of the top cosmetic necessities for beginners.
Of course, there is a myriad of cosmetics and beauty products that we’re trained to use and own! However, half of the time they are completely unnecessary. Face primer is not amongst them. For good reason, it’s on my list of the fundamental cosmetic products you’ll ever need.For starters, it’s an extension of your skincare regimen. A perfect and even cosmetics application is also built on it. It’s true that utilising a primer isn’t an extra step in your makeup routine. Primer is a product that is today’s investment, which saves your future money and time.
Aside from primer, concealer is one of the cosmetics I can’t live without. In fact, I consider both of these to be my top two cosmetics must-haves. To me, concealer is a mini-miracle worker. And it immediately improves my appearance and makes me feel better. Many individuals are confused about the differences between concealer and foundation and what each one does. So let me break it down for you right now. It’s the concealer, not the foundation, that will do all the heavy lifting for you.
Foundation is undoubtedly the most difficult element of your makeup regimen to master, as you must consider not only the level of coverage you like (sheer or natural, medium, or full), but also your skin type and undertones. If you’re new to wearing foundation or aren’t sure what type or shade is best for you, I recommend visiting your local department store and having a cosmetic artist assist you in selecting one that complements your skin tone and fits your style. Requesting a sample is also a smart idea if you want to check how a formula feels on your skin before purchasing it.
Blush can make a tremendous difference in your overall appearance, and I never skip it in my makeup process. Blush is especially important if you’re wearing a foundation with a higher level of opaque coverage, which can leave your skin looking flat. Blush is available in powder, gel, and cream forms, with powder being the most widely used. Cream and gel blushes, on the other hand, have recently become highly fashionable.
The highlighter comes in powder, cream, liquid, stick, and powder/cream hybrid forms, just like many other beauty products. Each of these forms has its own set of advantages, but I prefer powder or stick for novices because they are the easiest to work with. Apply a highlighter sparingly around the bridge of your nose, the tips of your cheekbones, your cupid’s bow, and just below your brows for a foolproof look.
