Makeup Must Haves For Beginners

Eager to start beating your face but don’t know where to start? This list of 12 must-have goodies for makeup beginners just starting out will help in your journey to face beat realness ,it can sometimes be so confusing as there are a lot  out there to choose from, when starting makeup I will normally advise for start with more affordable products and when you think you are more confident then you can Bergin to step up your game and buying more high end products.I have listed all the items I started off with as a beginner and I still used them,there are plenty of high end products out there but I wrote this for berginners and also for those who are already into makeup but do not want to spend too much but still want to remain flawless for less.
·         Primer
A primer lets your makeup stay longer and prevents makeup from melting off, so its good as a beginner you will want your makeup to last longer as it can be hard for you to know where and what to use to touch up your makeup when you start feeling sweaty on the face .A cheap example of primer I would recommend which is inexpensive will be the Nivea Post After Shave Balm,Maybelline Instant Pore Eraser(£7.99)

·         Foundation
If you are going for a foundation for the first time you would want to go into a beauty store for the store to test and find the perfect foundation for your skin type. If you want
to go high-end, MAC Studio Fix,Kat Von D ,Lancôme will be my go to, but through the 
way, there are really good foundations in budget brands Like Black Opal ,Milani Foundation ,L’Oréal and Revlon.  The whole trick with foundation is that you should be able to find a perfect match, and from there, it’s all easy.I personally would recommend the milani conceal perfect foundation((£13.99) and the black (10.99)opal foundation 
·         Concealer
When your whole makeup is looking good, under eye circles should not be spoiler, invest in a good concealer to cover your minor imperfections.  Invest in a good one because some concealers can make the under eye area ashy, which is not any better than dark circles. AS a Beginner my go to will be for you to use the La Girl Pro Concealer(£5.00), Maybelline Fit Me Concealer, Milani Concealer, this concealers will not break your bank.

·         Highlighting and Setting Powder

A highlighting powder will be the love of your life after one use. Apply a small amount of this to the high point of your cheek bones, very tip of your nose, and any other small area on your face you want to bring attention to. It’ll give you a gorgeous glow in the light. Pick a tone that matches your skin tone. If you’re lighter, go with something cream-colored or pinkish. If your skin tone is warmer, go with something more bronze or gold. Less is more with a product like this. As Beginner I will recommend Makeup Revolution highlighter ,there are plenty of shades they produced. For setting the concealer, so it sets you makeup I will recommend Sasha Buttercup(£16.00) , Ben Nye and Black Opal (£8.99)

·         Eye Liner
Eyeliners make the eyes pop more and gives you a flawless look and drags a lot of attention to your eyes and makes your eyes pop more .For beginner I will recommend Rimmel Eye Liner(£5.29)  ,which is very easy to apply and less costly
·         Blush and Bronzers
Blush and Bronzer are needed to add a dash of colour to your face.  If you have dry skin, you can pick up creamy blushes and if you have oily skin, you can try powder blushes I personally love dry Blushers as they are very easy to blend and do not leave your face cakey .  Bronzers are also necessary if you want to get that sun-kissed look.  Also, highlighter to highlight certain areas on your face. For a Beginner I will recommend the Sleek Blushers, Makeup Revolution Blusher(£6.00) Milani. For Bronzers Sleek and Makeup Revolution do have cheap and very pigmented and affordable Bronzers.
·         Mascara
No makeup kit is complete without mascara, neither for beginners nor for professionals.  Good mascara lengthens, curls, and opens up your eyes to give you an awakened look.  This item should not be skipped at all. My first Mascara as a beginner was from Maybelline, Maybelline produce one of the cheapest and best Mascara .Maybelline Lash Sensational (£8.99)was by first ever Mascara I bought and stil used today.
·         Eyeshadow
Since you would want to experiment with a lot of different eye makeup looks, its wise to invest in an eyeshadow palette rather than spending money in collecting single eyeshadows, I will suggest you go for a palette with more than one eyeshadow.   The most basic one is Coastal Scents eyeshadow palette (15.99)which has some 88 eyeshadows in one palette and comes at a good price ,Makeup Revolution has got some good palette too andMorphe if you are willing to stretch more .  You can opt for lesser or more shadows, it’s your choice.
Makeup Brushes
Building your brush collection can get pricey quick; and why spend so much money when you’re still trying to figure out HOW to even use them. Word of advice, I will personally not recommend to start off with expensive brushes if you don’t know how to take care of them  you will  just ruin the brushes and will end up spending even more money. There are a lot of inexpensive brushes on EBay and Amazon, I still used my Bestope Brushes(£14.00) this is an inexpensive brand that is great for beginners. The most expensive brush I’ve ever seen will range from anything between £30-£108 .Some are even just £1. Go to Primark, Superdrug’s, and Boots and pick out some brushes to get you going. They’ll last you more than a few months until you can get the hang of techniques and brush care. After that, slowly start building your collection of those more expensive brushes once you very confident.
