The other day I was putting on my makeup and I started wondering…. were all these products really essential to the look I was going for every day? The answer to this question is NO! I came to realize that I had four brown eyeshadow pallets and yet I only wore eyeshadow on special occasions. Men (and honestly some women) seem to think that a girl loves buying makeup and wearing makeup. While it may be true that we like to wear makeup, buying makeup can hurt our wallets. So, rather than thinking that your makeup essentials are the essentials you should have. Here are the ones I think are a must have for any beginner:
- eyeliner (this is essential for me but doesn’t have to be for you)
- foundation (liquid or powder)
- blush (give your cheeks a little color)
- setting spray
- lipstick (you don’t need many colors but it allows you to change up your look from time to time)
For your foundation, you can choose one or the other as well as both but if you choose both be careful you don’t overdo it with the application. Concealer is a good tool to conceal any dark circles or spots and can give your eyes a little highlight under the eyes if you decide to go with one shade lighter than your foundation color. Setting spray is an essential because it’ll keep your makeup in place all day. Lipstick is an essential but it doesn’t have to be. Find the essential makeup products that work for you.
