Must-Have Items In Your Makeup Bag For Beginners
Take it from me ladies; the world of makeup is confusing! There are so many products which do so much, how do you know what you really need? If you’re just starting out, or if you want to simplify your makeup bag, I’m sharing stuff with you today that every girl needs in her makeup bag. Here are a few makeup items in your makeup bag for beginners.
Ladies, before you go in with some kind of makeup, we can’t emphasize the importance of moisturizing your face sufficiently. It is the ideal base for your makeup. It not only hydrates the skin but it also maintains its barrier to moisture. Even if you have oily skin, you shouldn’t miss moisturizing, because it helps regulate oil production. Find and use a skin-type product after washing and toning your face faithfully. If you find a one with SPF, it’s even easier to protect your skin from hyperpigmentation and sun damage. Note, for smooth makeup application, a clean canvas is essential.
A lightweight moisturizer that is easily absorbed in your skin is a good idea.
A primer works like magic if you want your makeup to stay through. Not only does it build a smooth and seamless base, but it also makes it much easier to add the foundation.
So you can take care of all of it if you are struggling with things like wide pores or redness, making you soft velvety skin and minimizing pores. It’s about time you try it if you’ve never done it because it makes a lot of difference to how your makeup looks by the end of the day.
Your foundation is key to making your skin look perfect (naturally, after your skin routine) It’s also the hardest thing to do with your making routine. Why? Why? And before heading to the store to purchase formula, you have to remember certain items. First of all, is this the coverage you want? And second, is this going to work for the type and undertone of your skin?
It is critical that you test it on the face or jawline before you buy it if you are new to the foundation. Or go to a shop in your closest area and let a makeup artist help you pick a shade that suits your skin and meets your coverage needs. You can also ask for a sample if you want to see how the product fits for your skin before you make a purchase.
Tip: Apply your foundation and mix it well for a beautiful, perfect finish with a damp beauty sponge.
Concealer is one of your most valuable makeup stash products. It’s simple. If you want to hide blemishes, redness, or darkness under-eye circles, the concealer works like a charm. Usually, after the foundation, it is better to use a concealing product so you will finish smearing the product in the other direction. If you want to go for your make-up quickly and have a feeling of missing the foundation some days, you can just use the concealer to mask and look beautiful and bring it all together.
Finding a concealer that’s right for you can be a little difficult as you need to weigh a few things such as its quality, coverage, and staying power. Depending on the coverage you want, you can choose between a liquid, cream, or stick concealer.
Tip: Select a shade that is just two lighter shades than your natural skin tone for your under-eyes. This prevents the sparkling white circles under your eyes. Choose a shade for your face that exactly suits your foundation.
When Blush is properly applied, it will lift your face immediately and give you the glorious youthful glow. Choose a color that adds to your skin tone. A color that is too vivid to appear loud and very fake for your skin tone. Choose a shade that adds color to your face in a subtle way and sculpt your cheeks.
It’s a good idea to start with a powder blush if you are a beginner. Choose a soft brush that is tapered along the sides to meet the correct areas for the application. Kindly always use a light, gentle hand to apply your blush and use soft circular motions to blend color. Mix a little in the hairline, at the nose’s tip, and a jawline for a natural blush.
Tip: On light to medium skin tones, coral, light pink, or peach tones work well, and on dusky skin, plum, rose and deeper shades work well.
6. Eyeshadow Palette
A nude eyeshadow palette is everything you need when it comes to doing your makeup. This palette is important for a beginner to learn the eyeshadow application process, just like your favorite pair of jeans.
What we like most about a palette of nude eyeshadows is that it includes all the colors required to create a flawless natural look. It’s extremely flexible and never goes out of style.
An integral part of every makeup look is eyeliner. It could be an intricate cat-eye or just a normal look with just a little eyeliner there. If you are not very experienced in applying it, starting with a pencil eyeliner is best before moving on to a liquid one. You need to make room in your makeup bag for all of these, however.
With its magical wand, a mascara will turn your eyes and amp up those lashes instantly with more volume, definition, and length. It’s the one make-up method that makes you look bright in the morning immediately (although you haven’t slept 8 hours in full). When choosing a mascara you need to remember variables such as the shape of the brush and what the formula is supposed to do.
Tip: BEFORE applying mascara, it is better to curl your lashes because curling them would not only break your lashes off afterward but also get the product all over your curler.
9. Makeup Brushes
The way your makeup turns out is very much based on the brushes you are using. You do not need or want a million brushes in your makeup bag as a beginner. You just need to start with a few simple brushes which are fine.
When you are in need of a fast touch-up, a pressed powder or a compact comes to the rescue. Keep it in your bag, because it’s fast and easy to use and it helps to seal your makeup. We strongly recommend it to those with an oily skin type or combination skin type.
A good shade of lipstick does not only make your face brighter but also keeps you from looking washed out. And the possibilities are limitless when it comes to lip color. If you are new to lipstick, it is recommended that you start with less pigmented colors and shift gradually in bolder shades.
So, these are important makeup items in your makeup bag for beginners.
For someone who enjoys make-up, the makeover is intended to enhance, not hide, your natural beauty. You just need a bunch of things to play with different looks. Keep it real and simple.
