Are you a bit of a newbie when it comes to makeup? To be fair, we are all newbies… all of the time! What I mean by that is there are constantly new forms of make up out there, whether it be mascaras or face creams. There are constantly new products being introduced in wholesale packaging that we need to learn how to use and enjoy. Do you wonder how all of the girls on Instagram seem to be able to create Kim K makeup all on their own? I’m here to let you in on the secret – they have the makeup bag essentials I’m going to outline in this guide. Don’t worry; I’ll tell you how to use them too so you don’t end up making a mess of it. Take a look and enjoy!
The Contour Kit
Contouring isn’t just something done by Kim Kardashian to change the shape of her face. Just about everybody does it now, to varying degrees of success. There are many different contour kits on the market, so it’s up to you which one you choose. Make sure it suits your complexion and tone to get the best results from it. You don’t need a dramatic contour each time, you can simply create a subtle look with a small amount of product. I just love a nice highlight on the cheek bone and brow, so make sure you invest in a kit that can do this for you!
The Beauty Blender
The beauty blender is a magical little piece of kit. You can find dupes that work just as well too, so you don’t even have to splash out on the real deal. A good beauty blender will help to make your makeup look flawless. Most people use it to apply foundation and concealer, but you can also use it to take product away if you’ve applied too much. Use it damp for the best results!
A good selection of makeup brushes will help you to get the look you’re going for, for any occasion. You can use a fanned out brush for bronzer and highlighter. A small brush for lining your lips, concealer, detailing, and even applying shadow under the eye. I suggest buying a beginners kit if you don’t have any brushes already. You can then move onto professional makeup brush sets when you’ve hit your stride.
An eyeshadow palette gives you a bunch of amazing shadows in one, allowing you to create a ton of amazing looks. There are tons of shadow palettes for your life, whether you’re a party girl or a workaholic. You usually use a lighter colour all over the lid, a darker colour in the crease, and a darker colour underneath the eye. You can use multiple shadows to create awesome looks though!
Lipliner and Lipstick
Lipliner is a godsend. It’ll help define your lips, even if you don’t overline like everybody seems to be doing these days. You can apply it before or after your lipstick depending on the look you’re going for. Make sure your lipstick suits your skintone. If you have dry lips, bear in mind matte lipsticks can dry them out more. Be smart about your lipstick choices!
Make sure you have these essentials in your makeup bag and you’ll always look on point. You’ll be able to create a look for any occasion. Have fun playing with your look!
