Makeup Starter Kit

1 comment

I have been interested in makeup for a few years now, but when you start to develop this interest, it can be hard to know what products to buy. You don't want to go overboard on the price and if you are only around 12 to 13 years old, you don't want to be covered in too much makeup. I have put together a Makeup Starter Kit, which is products that I would recommend when you are starting out in makeup.

Foundation can be the scariest thing when you are starting out with makeup. It is important that you get a foundation that is suitable for your skin type and also matches your skin tone. There are a few different types of foundations that I would recommend. Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin is a good foundation, as it has good coverage, but also leaves your skin feeling moisturised. It also has SPF20, so it is good if you live in a hot climate. If you want to go for a less full on foundation, I would also recommend the Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream. This also has a lot of benefits for your skin, but doesn't have as much coverage. You can read my full review here. The final foundation I would recommend is a little bit more on the pricier side, but is really good for when you start wearing makeup and that is the Bare Minerals Original Foundation. It has light coverage but is good for your skin and I started out with this foundation at first.

Concealer is usually one of the first things that people buy. It can be used to cover up any blemishes or also can be used as an alternative for foundation. One that I recommend is the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. It has great coverage and lasts for ages and costs only £3.99. It is perfect for someone starting out with makeup.

Powder isn't something that everyone uses at first, but it is great if your skin is a little oily or you want something to set your makeup and make it last for longer. I recommend the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder. I have gone through countless pots of this and cannot say enough good things about it. It is only £3.99 and lasts for a very long time. It keeps your skin matte for around 5 hours and gives you a more airbrushed finish.

Blusher and Bronzer
These two products may not be necessary when you first start wearing makeup, but they can be useful to brighten up your face and give it a bit more colour. The MUA Blushers are good to start with because they cost only £1 each, and there are many colours to choose from. My bronzer recommendation is the Rimmel Natural Bronzer and it is great for both contouring or adding colour to your face.

Again, eyebrows are something that you might not want to start off with. I have only really started bothering with mine throughout the past year or so. Natural eyeshaddow palettes are usually a good way to go about your eyebrows, because most contain a matte brown. The product that I recommend is the Collection Work The Colour Eyebrow Kit. It contains an eyebrow gel, a brush and 3 different powder shades.

If you are after a eye palette, I would recommend the MUA Undress Me Too Eyeshaddow Palette. I contains 12 neutral shades, which is a great starting point and it only costs £4. There are so many great drugstore mascaras to choose from and there are several that I would recommend. Maybelline The Rocket Mascara is a great one to go for because it gives your lashes a lot of length and volume.

When you are starting out in makeup, chances are that you won't want loads of full on bright coloured lipsticks. I would recommend Maybelline Babylips because they leave your lips moisturised whilst still giving them a bit of natural colour.

Leave a comment if there are any other products that you would recommend.

  1. Great post! I've seen this type of video on YouTube, but I haven't seen too many blog posts that have beginner makeup essentials. I really love the BB cream and Stay Matte powder, two things that have been in my routine for a while!
