My first makeup kit: The basics

You want to wear makeup, but you’re not sure which products to choose? And, of course, you want to avoid making beauty faux pas . We hear you! In this article you will find valuable, easy-to-follow advice on the art of applying makeup.

 Content of your first makeup kit

 Your first makeup kit should contain: 

• Tinted moisturizer
• Liquid concealer
• Pink blush
• Blush brush
• Bronzing powder
Eyebrow pencil with built-in brush
• Eye shadow pencil
• White eye shadow
• Light gloss, and
• Brown-black lengthening mascara

 With these products you’ll be able to do your makeup in minutes and get a look that suits your age and style.

 Step-by-step makeup application 

1) Complexion

To start, apply tinted moisturizer to your entire face. You can also use an unscented BB cream that’s non-comedogenic. BB cream is great to correct, enhance and even out the complexion. 

2) Imperfections 

 Choose a liquid concealer that matches your skin tone. Gently dab small dots of the product to the under-eye area. Blend with your fingers using a light tapping motion. Be very gentle: the under-eye area is fragile

 Good to know!

 You can also use concealer to mask blemishes

3) Cheeks

 With a large brush, take a bit of powdered blush and apply it to your cheekbones. Don’t use too much or you’ll end up looking slightly clown-like. You can also apply bronzing powder to the parts of your face that naturally attract light: your forehead, nose, chin and cheeks. This will give you a sun-kissed glow.

 4) Eyes 

 Using the eyebrow pencil, outline and fill in your eyebrows and blend in the colour using the brush. Then, take the eye shadow pencil and run it over your eyelid. To brighten your eyes, apply a touch of white eye shadow to the inner corner of your eye. Add a bit of lengthening mascara, and you’re done.

 5) Lips 

Finish off your makeup routine with a bit of lip gloss . Congratulations! You have just completed Makeup 101!
