Makeup essentials for beginners πŸ–€

 Makeup essentials for beginnersπŸ–€:-

Hello my angels!!
The world of makeup is huge and with new product launches almost everyday choosing the right products can be difficult especially for those who are just starting out with makeup. Here's a list of basic and affordable products that are perfect for anyone who is just starting out with makeup.

1) BB/ CC cream:-

Foundations can be a bit too tacky because they are quite hard to blend. So if you guys are looking for a product to simply even out your skin tone ,then a BB or CC cream would do the trick but, getting the right shade and blending it properly into your skin is very important. 
What I use :-
BB Cream - Maybelline Clear Glow 
CC Cream - Lakme 9 to 5

2) Eyeliner :- 

There are 4 types of eyeliner's available in the market namely - pencil, liquid, gel and felt tip liner. I personally feel that practicing the art of applying eyeliner could be done with a pencil liner because it gives you more grip and that makes the application process a tad bit easier.Once you get a hang of it then using any other type of liner becomes easy.
What I use:-
Pencil - Maybelline Colossal Super Black 
Felt-  Lakme Absolute 
Gel- Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama 
Liquid - elf

3) Kajal :-

Applying kajal is really easy and all you've got to do is line your lower lash line with a pencil. So if you are a beginner and want to experiment with color's I suggest you start with the kajal. Owning a black, brown, navy blue and dark green colour kajal is ideal as these are the only colours you might ever need, unless you want to look like you've just got out of a Halloween party ;)

4) Eyeshadow :-

A small pallette with some basic nude shades like browns, pinks, golds etc will go a long way because these shades can be used with almost any colour outfit.
What I use:-
1.The Maybelline Nudes pallete. 
2.Nyx Ultimate shadow pallette. 

5) Bronzer and highlighter :-

Using a Bronzer and highlighter is essential because they add some definition to your face and prevents it from looking flat. Pout and apply the Bronzer in the hollows of your cheeks, on the sides of your forehead and jaw. The highlighter goes on the high points of your face like the bridge of the nose, top of your cheeks and center of the forehead and key to applying this is that you should blend it properly, otherwise you are going to look like a plastic doll;)
What I use:-
The Maybelline V Face duo powder. 

Ps. You could also add a blusher to this list, as it brings some colour to your cheeks. But I personally don't like using a blusher because I feel that it doesn't suit me :p. The Maybelline cream blush is ideal for those of you who are willing to use a blusher but please do blend it properly into your skin in circular motions to avoid looking like you've just tried out for a joker's role ;)

6) Lipstick :-

When it comes to lipsticks, owning a single colour can never be enough, so some  basic shades like reds, pinks, nudes etc are of utmost importance and I will definitely do a detailed blog post about the 5 shades of lipstick any girl who likes to wear makeup should own in the near future. So do lookout for that;)

6) Mascara :-

Mascara is the gospel when it comes to makeup. Apply a generous coat of mascara on both the upper and lower lashes as this would open up your eyes and make it look big and beautiful. 
What I use:-
Maybelline push up drama 

7) Compact power:- 

To set everything in place, gently dab some setting powder or a compact powder on your face especially on the T- Zone as it prevents your face from getting dull and oily. 
What I use :-
1.The Laura Mercier setting powder. 
2. Maybelline Clear Glow All in One.

Hope you guys found this post useful :) Ciao!!
