Makeup kit for beginners

Are you a makeup beginner? Or do you like makeup but sometimes get confused because the YouTubers use so much makeup that you don’t even know where to begin? Are you starting your first makeup kit?

If you’re starting or have no idea what you should buy first to start to learn about makeup this post is perfect for you! I’m listing the ultimate makeup essencial list for beginners, with these items I’m going to share with you today you can make from natural everyday makeup to party and night looks.

So let’s get started!

For your skin

Moisturizer

IMG_1468

 

Yes boys and girls, keeping your skin protected and moisturized is really important before starting you face! Choose the right cream for your skin type and apply before applying any makeup on your face.

 

 

Primer IMG_1465

The primer is essential for a perfect skin! If you want your makeup to last long you definitely should include this product to your makeup shop list! Not just that, depending on the kind, the primer can minimize pores, redness and lines.

Foundation

Next must have is foundation, pay attention on the color, undertone and skin type before buying your foundation, you can find reviews and first impressions of almost every foundation that exists, and don’t forget to test the color on cosmetic stores, touch, test and feel the product before buying.

IMG_1467.jpgConcealer

As the name says, we use it to conceal some imperfections, you can use it to highlighter some places and use the colorful concealers to conceal dark circles and redness for example.

IMG_1461.jpgPowder

The face powder is essential to set you foundation in place, if you’re a beginner I recommend you to use a translucent powder for the whole face, you should own a darker powder too (2 tones darker than your skin tone) for contouring.

 

Blush

IMG_1464.jpg

A good blush can bring your makeup look for the next level, I already wrote a post here about the perfect blush color for your skin tone, you can read more HERE.

 

Highlighter

IMG_1466.jpg

 

You use shimmery highlight to give that glow to your makeup. You can find it powder or liquid.

Eye makeup

Neutral eyeshadow palette

IMG_1472.jpg

If you’re starting with makeup you should invest in a big neutral palette, this was one of my first makeup palettes ever! I learned a lot with about how to use cold and warm tones. You don’t have to buy a palette with so many shades like this one. I have some neutral palette with 20/25 shades are are amazing for beginners.

Colorful eyeshadow palette

IMG_1471

Just like the neutral palette you can have a big colorful palette, then you can start playing with shades and different colors.

Eye primer

This is not a must have but it improves your eyeshadow durability and pigmentation, a lot of people use concealer before applying the eyeshadow, but you should be sure that the concealer is a little more dry, or it will make your eyeshadow looks terrible.

Black eyelinerIMG_1469.jpg

This is a must have, what is more elegant and classic than cat eyes and red lips? If you’re still insecure to do eyeliner you can get a gel or cream ones, they’re easier to use than the liquid eyeliner. And if you would like to practice you can start with black eyeshadow!

IMG_1470Eye pencils

You should own at least 3 colors of eye pencils, every color will give you a different effect to your eye look. The essential colors are: black, brown and white (or beige).

Mascara

IMG_1474.jpgMascara is a must have to finish your eye look, or you can wear it alone in a day you don’t have much time to do makeup, you can buy the mascara according to the effect you want, you can have volumizing, curling, defining and a lot more kinds of mascaras.

Eyebrows

I recommend you to use eyeshadow to correct your eyebrows, they give a more natural look to them, but you can use pomades and pencils too, it depends on which one is easier for you.

Lips

IMG_1475.jpg

You can have as many lipsticks shades as you like, in different textures, liquid, matte, glossy, but you should have at least the shades red, nude and pink.

Makeup Tips: The right blush for your skin tone

Hey beauties!

Let’s talk about blushes today, one of our makeup essentials! Today I am sharing with you the perfect brush for (almost) every skin tone!!

This simple guide will help you to reach a more natural and matches perfectly with your skin tone!!

Fair Skin tone

If you have a fair skin tone the shades for you are from light pink to peach:

Medium Skin tone

From this skin tone a deeper pink, mauve or apricot are the best shades.

Dark Skin tone

A darker skin would require a deeper berry shade between fuchsia to brick red.

And, of course, if you love to use one of those blushes which “are not” for your skin tone you can keep wearing it, it’s not a rule, just a guide when you want to keep your blush more natural!

Share with us on the comments your favorite blush!

I hope you liked this post! Thanks for reading!!

I Heart Makeup Chocolate and Peaches – Review + Swatches

Hello beauties,

another day I asked on my Instagram if I should review the Chocolate palettes from I Heart Makeup and the answer was YES! So, today I am reviewing the first one, the Chocolate and Peaches. This one is the first palette I ordered from them, something like a month ago, and since then, it became my to go, I am in love with the shades on this palette. So, I am going to share with you my experience.

IMG_1020

The packaging

The pack is simply in a chocolate bar shape in a beautiful peach shade, it looks like all the other I Heart Makeup palettes, it has a very big and useful mirror (which is a good point).

IMG_1019
The chocolate packaging

The shades aren’t written on the palette so it has a plastic that you can put on the top with the names. It also comes with a brush, on the same color of the palette, I have to confess that i am not the biggest fan of this kind of brushes, but okay, I think this brush is super cute.

Names and the brush

Swatches

It comes with 16 shades that includes matte, shimmery, from soft cream shades to dark blues, own bellow I am going to describe every shade and the pigmentation (bad, okay, good, very good and amazing).

The shades are very nice, you get 3 browns for the perfect smokey eye, a matte peach and lots of shimmery shades, what makes this palette very versatile, you can use it on the everyday bases or for a more glam look.

Price and Final Thoughts

This palette is very affordable, I paid 7.99€ in a online store from Germany, I think it’s very very good for the price, and you can consider it very good dupe for the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette, you can even recreate some tutorials from the too faced palette with this one, that’s good if you don’t wanna pay so much for a palette. Like I said before I am in love with this palette and it works really good for me!

Thanks for reading!!
