Whether you’re a makeup fanatic or have been experimenting with cosmetics, it is crucial to have a collection with makeup essentials. After acquiring the makeup basics, it is easier to add playful or trendy makeup products to your collection.
Let’s take a quick look at the makeup products to fill the gaps in your collection.
Not many understand the importance of using a face primer! The main purpose of a face primer is to keep your skin looking smooth and your makeup looking fresh all day long. There is a primer for all skin types.
Foundation is perhaps the hardest makeup product to get your routine right. You have to be careful with the type of coverage you pick like sheer(natural), medium or full depending upon your skin type and skin tone. Always pick out the one that matches your complexion.
The highlighter comes in various forms like powder, cream, liquid, stick, and powder/cream fusion. A powder or stick is the easiest to work with. However, finding the right shade is of the utmost importance when it comes to a highlighter.
It is generally applied along the bridge of your nose, the tops of your cheekbones, your cupid’s bow, and just below your eyebrows.
Mascara has its own magical way of pulling your eye look together and comes in countless different formulas that lengthen, thickens, and curls your eyelashes. The majority opts for black color, however, people with light-colored lashes may want to opt for brown mascara.
Just like Mascara, Eyeliner can also add a little extra something! While black eyeliner is often considered a staple, you can get creative with colors and get that diva look. Winging it out is the newest trend.
A setting spray keeps your makeup in place all day long. There are different formulations depending on what type of finish you’re after. You should never skip this step for a long-lasting makeup look.
If you have acne or dark circles, using a concealer is a must! They come in full-coverage and sheerer-coverage formulations and the one you choose depends on how much you want to cover up. Pick a shade that is closest to your foundation.
You cannot do without a Brow Kit. Most of us are comfortable with the way our eyebrows look but it is always a good idea to make them stand out. Opt for a light hand use so that it slowly builds up the intensity to avoid the artificial, drawn-on look.
