We will start with makeup essentials that you need for your face. The base is the most important part of your routine. You have to get it right. Every product that you will need is listed below. Check them out!
No makeup list is complete without a primer. You need it to make your makeup last longer. It hydrates your face and evens out your skin tone. When it comes to primer, you can check out these following brands – Smashbox, Lakme and Colorbar.
Foundation & BB Cream
A foundation or a BB cream creates the makeup base you are looking for. You need both in your list of essentials for different occasions. A foundation is perfect for any big event and you can use a BB cream for work and everyday use. Go for a matte foundation if you have oily skin and a gloss finish one for dry skin.
Colour corrector concealer
The next is the colour corrector concealers. We all have a few dark spots on our skin that we do not feel confident about. Areas that you can apply the concealer are dark circles under the eyes, the area above your lips and any marks on your face. The colour correctors hide the marks and the concealer highlights the skin.
A contour kit consists of contour shades and bronzers. Both are used to add definition to your face. It adds structure and highlights your features. It also gives colour to the paleness in the face because of the foundation.
The last in makeup essentials for face is a highlighter. You have the option to go for a highlighting stick or a classic box highlighter. Go for a cream highlighter if you have dry skin and stick with a powder-based highlighter if you have oily skin.
Eyes & Brows makeup
Eyes are the windows to one’s soul. While this line may be cheesy, it is also somewhat true. They are important if you want to have a beautiful makeup look. All these makeup essentials are important. Scroll down to know the reason why!
You need to fill your eyebrows to make them look sharp. It adds definition to your face. Make sure you do not overdo fill them. If you are a beginner, use powder product.
We do not need to tell you why an eyeshadow palette is a part of this list. You should definitely invest in 2-3 different types of palettes like a neutral shade palette with bronzes, taupe shades and neutral coloured shades.
It is time to lengthen your lashes with a mascara to highlight your eyes. It completes your eye makeup and makes them stand out.
You can get eyeliners in many colours from blue to green. However, black eyeliner is at the top of your makeup essentials list.
Last but not the least makeup essential for your eyes is a kajal. You have the option to choose from a pencil or a roll on stick.
We feel lips complete every makeup look. They add a pop of colour and just bring everything together. You need both these makeup essentials to give your lips the respect they deserve.
It is wise to use a lip liner before applying lipstick to your lips. If you line your lips before, your lips have an excellent shape and there are fewer chances of you smudging it.
Even an everyday look is incomplete without the perfect lipstick. Every woman knows its importance. There is no doubt that you should own many shades that suit your face complexion so you can match them with different looks.
Extra makeup essentials you need to have in your makeup kit are makeup brushes, beauty sponges, makeup remover, setting spray and a moisturiser. All these help you in getting the best makeup look.
