MAKEUP STARTER KIT TIPS:
For those of you that are truly just starting out, maybe this is your first year back to school wearing makeup, here are some great tips for keeping it simple.
Foundation: This will help create a smooth and even toned face. If you are just starting out with makeup I would suggest going with something on the medium to sheer coverage. Full coverage can look cakey if you haven’t mastered your skills on applying makeup.
Concealer: I know when I was a kid/teen just starting out wearing makeup blemishes were definitely something that I wanted to try and hide. Concealer is great for hiding blemishes. To find the right concealer you want to look for something lighter than your actual skin tone. This is were you can also look for something in the thicker consistency for fuller coverage.
Powders/Blushes/Bronzers: These type of products add color and definition. Powder is great for oily faces to keep the shine down. I spent a good majority of my first makeup years just wearing powder and skipping the foundation all together. Bronzer’s can be a little trickier to wear so I would actually not recommend starting with a bronzer until you’ve had time to get the application of all your basics down.
Eyeshadow & Eyeliner: Define your eyes! Eyeshadow is probably the first product that young girls want to test out. I know it is for my daughter and she is only 4, well that and lip products. Ha! Eyeshadow can also be the hardest product to master in applying. I would suggest starting out with neutral colors and only using 1-2 shades in the beginning. You can learn a LOT by checking out eyeshadow tuturials on youtube so if you want to get better practice makes perfect. 🙂 A good eye primer goes a long way as well.
Lips & Mascara: The finishing touches! If you are just starting out and you are attending school daily then you want to keep these two products minimal. I don’t think the teachers would appreciate a bright red lip or a falsies style lash. Go with a neutral/nude shade or a light pink and keep the mascara with just a few swipes to brighten your beautiful eyes.
Hope these tips can help a beauty newbie in need.
