Beginners Beauty - A Guide

Posted by Olivia Jayne at 00:00
Today I thought I'd do a slightly different post and incorporate the products that I would suggest a beauty beginner buy. I only got into makeup about a year ago and these are the products that I would recommend buying first. Most of these items are inexpensive since a beginner in makeup might want to test out more products before splurging some more. I know that's what I did.

Firstly, the makeup brushes. I found it really fun to buy new makeup brushes because I'd never really bought any before. The first ones I think I bought and that I would definitely recommend is the 'Real Techniques Travel Set'. This contains a multi-task brush, essential foundation brush and a domed shadow brush.

Secondly, I would recommend lips-wise the Maybelline Baby Lips or Revlon Lip Butters. I first bought the Baby Lips which is a great place to start considering how inexpensive they are.

For blushes, I would recommend Bourjois Blushes if you can get them or if you are in America, the NYX blushes. Both of these brands are really inexpensive but great quality. I also find that the colour range is great especially when you are starting out and want to experiment more.

As for face products, I would always suggest starting with a BB cream or lighter foundation to get used to the feel of something being on your skin all day. My personal, cheaper favourite is Bourjois' Healthy Mix Serum. For concealer I would go for Collections Lasting Perfection because it is only £4.19 but one of the best congealers you'll ever buy.

For eyeshadow, I think its best to buy a do-it-all palette and I would probably choose one from Sleek. I haven't actually tried a Sleek Eyeshadow Palette but people rate them very highly and they are really inexpensive. I would also try using a brown shadow for the eyebrows before venturing out into eyebrow products. I just think that this is a better way to test out how you like your brows looking.

For mascara, I would choose one from Maybelline. I honestly think that they are all great but my personal favourite is The Rocket. I think that this can look very natural or you can build it up to look more dramatic.
