BASIC MAKEUP GUIDE FOR BEGINNERS

Updated: Feb 19, 2018



Hey reader, How are you doing? So, after reading the topic you already know what i am going to talk about! if you are a beginner and looking for some basic affordable makeup products, then you should continue reading this! so i have a list of products that i use on a daily basis (promise you’ll that these are definitely in budget). There are CC Cream, Eye Liner, lipsticks, mascara, compact powder, highlighter, blush.

So without boring you guys, let’s get into the details. (also these are the steps i use for my daily makeup routine).



1. SUNSCREEN (STEP 1)




OK, just have a moment for this amazing product. this works as a base for your makeup, protects you from harmful sun-rays, makes your skin look healthy, removes dryness. so this is a pretty amazing and most important part of your makeup/everyday routine.

BELOW ARE THE LIST OF DIFFERENT AND AFFORDABLE SUNCREEN,

  • Lakme Sun Expert Fairness + UV Lotion SPF 24 PA ++ ( i have been using this since a long time)

  • Himalaya Herbals Youth Eternity Day Cream SPF 15

  • Kama Ayurveda Jwalini Retexturising Skin Treatment Oil


2. BB & CC CREAMS (STEP 2)




This is the next step i use to put a base to my makeup. i dont use Foundations on a daily basis, because it gives a heavy look ( my skin needs to breathe everyday offcourse). unless, i dont have any weddings or events to attend i mostly use CC CREAMS. i use Lakme 9 to 5 Complexion Care CC Cream, which actually gives a foundation coverage look.

SOME LIST OF BB & CC CREAMS,

  • Lakme 9 to 5 Complexion Care CC Cream

  • Maybelline New York Clear Glow Bright Benefit Cream

  • Colorbar Perfect Match BB Cream

3. COMPACT POWDER (STEP 3)




This is the product which sets everything in place. if you are not even planning to do your makeup just apply suncreen and then compact powder all over your face and neck, this gives you an even and natural look. you can use a brush or puffy sponge to apply your compact. Recently I started using Lakme 9 To 5 Flawless Matte Complexion Compact 

 OTHER COMPACT POWDERS,

  • Maybelline New York White Super Fresh Compact

  • Maybelline New York Fit Me Matte + Poreless Powder

  • Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder

  • Maybelline New York Clear smooth All in One UV+ Lightening Oil Control Two Way Cake SPF 32 PA+++

4. EYE LINER (STEP 4)




A pretty basic step, also optional! if you are an eyeliner person, like i am then continue reading xx. there are variety of eyeliner styles you can try everyday, one of them is winged eyeliner (which you guys know how obsessed i am). I use Lakme Insta Liner Eye Liner, Black. I love this one because this stays the whole day, perfect black.

SOME OTHER LINERS,

  • Colorbar Ultimate Eye Liner

  • Lotus Herbals Opulence Botanical Eye Liner – Black

  • Lakme Absolute Precision Liquid Liner

  • Lakme 9 To 5 Black Impact Eye Liner – Black

5. MASCARA (STEP 5)



Long, luscious, thick eyelashes are always in style. Most of us, however, were not fortunate enough to be born with such beautiful eyelashes. Whatever your need, there are different mascara types out there for you. I love voluminizing mascara, it gives me that volume i need and even the length.

if you have short lashes try lengthening mascara.

Thin lashes, thickening mascara.

straight lashes, curling mascara.

all three, volume mascara.

LIST OF MASCARA,

  • Colorbar Zoom & Whoosh Mascara Black Sin 001

  • Essence Get Big! Lashes Volume Curl Mascara

  • Maybelline New York Volum Express Hyper Curl Mascara

  • Faces Magneteyes Dramatic Volumizing Mascara Black

  • Maybelline New York Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara

6. HIGHLIGHTER (STEP 6)



How many of you guys love highlighters? i just love how it gives a glowy, healthy look on your face. i never tried highlighter one year ago ( I know i am not a perfectionist in doing my makeup but i just like the way i do it). There’s not a single product i use as my highlighter (infact i like to mix and apply on high points of my face).

best highlighter products,

  • Maybelline New York V-Face Duo Stick

  • Colorbar Radiant Glow Face Illuminator Glamour

  • Makeup Obsession Highlighter – H101 Peach

  • theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter, Shadow & Shimmer – Gold

  • Faces Ultime Pro Metaliglow

7. LIPSTICK (STEP 6)



ON a bad day, there’s always a lipstick!!! I think i have nothing to write about this, because everyone is aware how to use it. So, i am going to directly jump on the list of lipsticks i use. I love love love matte lipsticks (you guys know my obsession).

List of Lipsticks i use often,

  • Faces Ultime Pro Matte Lip Crayon (stays like crazyyy best lipstick ever)

  • NYX Professional Makeup Soft Matte Lip Cream

  • SUGAR Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick

  • Colorbar Kiss Proof Lip Stain

  • NYX Professional Makeup Simply Nude Lip Cream

Hope this was helpful, let me know in the comments if you have any more questions.

Have a great day!

Make-up is not a tool to make an ugly thing beautiful, it is meant to magnify the beauty that already exits!
