Foundation –The BB creams and the CC creams are pretty good but they aren’t exactly makeup. If you want that perfect finish, then you need a good foundation. While high-end products are always amazing, like MAC Studio Fix and MUFE HD and Clinique Even Tone, there are some great budget brands too. Choose from brands like Maybelline New York, Revlon or even Lotus Herbals, which are really value for money. All you need is a perfect shade for your skin tone and you’re good to go.
Compact Powder – This is an essential cosmetic for your makeup kit and should be used for a perfect finish. The compact powder sets the foundation in place and allows the makeup to last longer by preventing sweat.
Concealer – This cosmetic is used to hide your imperfections like dark circles or blemishes. When your whole makeup looks awesome you don’t really want a certain dark patch to ruin the whole look, do you? Therefore, this cosmetic is very important. Invest in a good brand because some concealers can make your face look ashy.
Lipstick – The lip color can make or break any look. A perfect one amplifies and complements while a wrong once completely ruins the look. You need loads of different shades in various different finishes like matte, frosty, creamy and satin. Colors like red, pink, neutral, peach and brown are must haves.
Eyeliner – No makeup is complete without gorgeous eyes and the eyeliner ensures that your eyes are appropriately highlighted. Just like the lipstick you need more than one type of eyeliner. Do invest in a liquid one and pencil one. If you can then also get hold of a felt tip and a gel form eyeliner. It’s better if you have them in more shades than one.
Mascara – An essential cosmetic for beginners and professional alike, mascara not only lengthens and curls those eyelashes, it also provides an awakened look by opening up the eyes.
