BEGINNER’S MAKEUP ESSENTIALS GUIDE

Hello everyone, I’m really sorry for not being active on here, I’ve been extremely busy these past two weeks but I will have a post out every week from now on.

Today, I thought I’ll share some of the products that I use and love which is easily available and affordable for anyone trying out makeup because I have been there and it’s really important to pick the right products because an intensive beauty routine is expensive and you don’t want to spend money on products that suck and all of the products mentioned below will help you get that No Makeup Makeup look so that you can master the whole trying not too hard look

1) Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream:

I have already spoken about this cream and it’s one of the best face moisturizers I have used, whether or not you use makeup, this is a must have and I have been using this since the fourth or fifth grade. If you aren’t sure how to start applying your makeup or you want an alternative for a primer, this works fine for all skin types especially for those who have dry skin. You can ask for it in any of the drugstore or the pharmacy store near your house.

2) FOUNDATION- Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation

Fit Me Matte + Poreless from Maybelline New York goes beyond skin tone matching to fit the unique texture issues of normal to oily skin for the ultimate natural skin fit.While some foundations can exaggerate pores and oily skin, this gives a very natural subtle matte look, it gives medium coverage in terms of skin correction but it is easily build-able and extremely easy on the pocket which makes it suitable for a beginner.

3) CONCEALER-  L.A GIRL PRO CONCEAL HD

If you have a lot of spots or uneven skin tone, then you probably need a concealer to get that flawless look, I use it on my spots and under my eyes after applying my foundation, the L.A GIRL PRO CONCEAL HD is one of the best drugstore concealer I have used, they have a huge range of colors for different skin tones and colored products to conceal reddness, spots etc. It is suitable for all skin types and it includes a small brush for easy application.

4) Compressed Powder- RIMMEL STAY MATTE COMPRESSED POWDER

If you aren’t a huge fan of foundation, you can skip it and just use the concealor and a really good compressed powder to even out your skin tone and accentuate your features. I love the Rimmel compact because it is very light on my skin, For the price, you have to shell out for this. It’s definitely a steal, the only problem is the availability of the correct shade for Indian skin tones. It gives a matte finish as the name suggests so you can use this to set your makeup and the best thing about this is it does not crease at all and it is extremely cheap.

5) EYELINER- MAYBELLINE  NEW YORK COLOSSAL KAJAL SUPER BLACK

I usually just use this for my waterline but sometimes I use it as an eyeliner too and it gives a great finish, it is waterproof and smudge proof and it lasts me a whole day. This is the second release of their colossal range kohl and this one is darker and smoother but there isn’t really that massive change in both these products they are almost the same.

6) EYE SHADOW PALLETE- MAYBELINE NEW YORK THE BLUSHED NUDES PALETTE-

For anyone who wants to start their makeup collection, this palette is a must, it leans towards  more neutral shades with warm undertones but you can create a wide range of looks with this.The Blush Nudes Palette is a range of 12 rose gold-infused shades, designed to create looks with hues of sensuous rose, tempting taupe and provocative plums, the palette enables you to either chose a matte or shimmer look for your eyes which is why this is my favourite, it is not extremely pigmented but it is build-able and it is worth the price.

7) Mascara- Maybelline Volume Express Hyper curl

I don’t use a lot of Mascara because I have naturally long lashes but a lot of people prefer this over any other eye product and the Volume Express Mascara is definitely the best Mascara I have used, It has a  smooth formula for this price range. It clumps a bit on second layer application but otherwise it’s a great product with brush designed for curled lashes. The brush design also helps to brush out each and every lash hair neatly.

8) LIP BALM- Maybelline baby lips

I know most of my products mentioned are from Maybelline because it is one of the best drugstore makeup brand, hands down and you need to use a lip balm whether you wear makeup or don’t, their entire range is pretty cool, they are available in  fresh poppy colors and are really moisturizing and give you a subtle glow.
