Basic Must Haves Of A Makeup Kit

Before you begin your journey into the world of makeup, have a simple CTM or Cleanser, Toner Moisturiser routine is in place. This will help you have clean, glowing and perfect skin to apply your makeup on. Read on to know what are the things you need to have great makeup.

  1. Cleanser

A cleanser is a liquid which helps deep clean excess grime, oil and makeup. It is best to use a cleanser when you have come from outside or have makeup on. The best practice for a cleanser is to apply the cleanser in circular motions, all around the face. It helps pull out all the impurities and dirt.

  1. Toner

A toner’s job is to help moisturise and manage the skin’s moisture content. It also helps in making the skin absorb the moisturiser better. Toners also give a soft glow to your skin, making your makeup shine even more.

  1. Moisturiser

A good moisturiser is a necessity, not an option. This helps keep your skin hydrated and smooth. It also helps give an even base to apply your makeup. A moisturiser helps your skin be more elastic, which ensures that your skin isn’t wrinkled. You can order your moisturiser from Milkbasket and get it delivered at your doorstep by 7 AM.

  1. Foundation

A foundation is a base which helps even out your skin’s tone and makes perfect base for your make up to be applied to. Choose a foundation closest to your skin tone, that way it will not look unnatural or blotchy. Try choosing a liquid foundation because it blends better and does not give a cake-y look! You also use less foundation. Apply a few drops around your face, using a damp beauty blender, always damp, otherwise it absorbs the product, dab the foundation all over your face. Make sure the foundation is even and smooth.

  1. Lipstick

A lipstick is a must, choose what you like, be crazy. However a few staple colours in your makeup kit would be a great addition. A cherry red or a dark red are great because those go well with most clothes. A light pink, a glossy tinted lipstick, matte red and pink lipsticks. You can even use lipstick as an eyeshadow or even some blush, because why not!!

  1. Highlighter

Always a great idea because a little shimmer doesn’t harm anyone! There are liquid and powder highlighters. We suggest the liquid ones. They are easier to apply and a little goes a long way! So choose a highlighter as per your needs and at the end do a trial before buying so you can know which suits your skin tone the best.

  1. Bronzer

If you are someone who likes a sunkissed look or likes to enjoy some depth of colour in your skin, then a bronzer will help you tons! Choose two shades darker than your skin colour and not more. Use the bronzer on the high points of your face and you can even use it on your collarbones to highlight it.

  1. Makeup Setting Spray

A makeup setting spray is a must if you want your makeup to last. To decide which kind of finish you want from your makeup. A matte finish or a dewy finish, you can decide to buy a setting spray/powder according to that.

A makeup kit is always a great addition to your kitty because not only does it boost your look, it boosts your confidence. Also remember makeup doesn’t make you prettier, you are already beautiful. Makeup only enhances your beauty. You can choose some or all the items to use for yourself, take the help of youtube tutorials and above all enjoy yourself.
