You must be wondering what this Ultimate Guide to Makeup Products is all about. But if you are here, you most definitely are in search of the right products to use to begin a makeup routine. Well, you have come to the right place. So, this is for all girls out there who want to start using makeup but are not quite sure about the products to use. But worry not, I have accumulated a list of affordable products that I used when I started out with makeup as a beginner.
First things first, before the actual makeup part you need to have a good moisturizer to hydrate your skin. Having a hydrating moisturizer will help with your skin looking fresh and would not look dull and flaky after applying the foundation. If you have dry skin, I would also recommend that you invest in a good serum or apply a little bit of baby oil after your moisturizer. Take a little amount and pat it on your skin. This again will help your skin from looking flaky.
For a beginner, I recommend Maybelline’s Fit me foundation. It’s a beautiful medium coverage foundation and a little goes a long way. It comes in a variety of shades for every skin tone. It’s my go-to foundation ever since I got it a few years ago. I would say, get the shade that matches your skin tone otherwise the foundation gives a grey look after makeup, which is one reason why a lot of girls feel hesitant in using it.
I suggest you get an LA GIRLS concealer. It has a whole range of shades and gives pretty good coverage at hiding your dark circles.
Next up, is a good eyeshadow palette. Well, without the eyeshadow no makeup look is complete. I recommend using La girl’s palette or wet n wild palette. Both affordable and have good pigmentation.
Eye Liner/ Kajal
A kajal or an eyeliner can be used without even doing a whole makeup face. Just some concealer and kajal does the job for me on some days!
One should invest in a good Kajal that doesn’t end up smudging. As it can also use it as a liner or you can use a Lakme eyeliner. Super affordable and gives a beautiful finish.
Maybelline’s The Colossal mascara is one of the best drugstore mascara out there. Gives amazing volume to your eyelashes and super affordable as well!
Without blush your look is incomplete. Maybelline’s Color show and Fit me blush is an amazing drugstore product and is also very affordable. It comes in four shades and you can choose whichever one suits your skin tone.
Makeup without a highlighter is a no-no. I use Wet n wild’s highlighter in the shade of Precious Petals. It has a stunning finish and gets me loads of compliments.
If you want to try out a drugstore lipstick that will not only have a beautiful range of shades but also come in liquid then no doubt you should go for Maybelline.
