You are just joining us for the first time, don’t forget to subscribe to my blog and don’t forget to share. Okay today I’m going to deal with a very interesting topic which is collecting and having your own makeup kit.
Most often we see celebrities like Kim Kardashians advertising their beauty products and make up kits that they recommend them to their fans but little do we know these products and makeup kits are damn expensive. Today with your little savings you can get those products in different areas and from different owners and assemble your own makeup kit which you can use to slay your face. Okay so what to we need;
- Eyebrow pencil/ dipbrow pomades: All of this are used to shape your brows the way you want it to look like and in accordance to your face shape.
- Makeup Brushes: There are so many makeup brushes out there produced by many companies. These brushes however have different uses and unless you know how to use them,you won’t get it right. There are more than 12 makeup brushes out there and will name the most important ones. Foundation brush, beauty blender, Kabuki brush, powder brush, angled blush brush, concealer brush, all-over eye shadow brush, blending eyeshadow brush, smudger brush, angled eyeliner brush, lashes/ brow comb brush, fan brush. These are some and we will look at them detailly some other time.
- Face Moisturizer: Remeber you need to clean your face of all dirt and make it fresh and available to receive makeup. This is very essential for uneven face and face with little dots and scars. Washing your face will help your makeup soak in more and give you a more even tone. Face moisturizers like Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water are good but if you can’t get this, do what i do, wash your face off with clean water, pad dry and get your face set for makeup.
- Face Primer: After getting your moisturizer, the next thing you will need is your primer. Primer is a base for foundation or makeup that allows it to go on smoother and last longer. Primers can also help smooth any fine lines, wrinkles or large pores and you can get them in shops as cream, gel and powder. And remember when making up, let your primer sit for a while on your face before you continue with your makeup.
- Colour Corrector: This product is very important because it helps you hide all forms of discolourations on your face.Remember there are many colour correctors in the market, and depending on what your face shows, get the right colour for yourself. In plain english, Orange is used to correct under-eye discolouration, especially those very deep blue dark circles, green cancels redness, such as rosacea and broken capillaries, and lavender is used to counter very yellow tones. So put your corrector in your bag.
- Foundation: Have you ever heard this saying that most girls walk with their faces looking bright and fairer while they have dark skin colours? That’s the effect of foundation. Foundation is a skin coloured makeup applied to the face to create an even, uniform colour to the complexion, to cover flaws and, sometimes, to change the natural skin tone.
- Face Concealer: A concealer is used to mask dark circles, age spots, large pores, and other small blemishes visible on the skin. It is similar to foundation, but thicker and used to hide different pigments by blending the imperfection into the surrounding skin tone. Note green and pink works to neutralize the dark blue or purplish areas on your face. If you’ve got serious under eye circles or dark spots, pink concealer will help to cover up those areas.
- Under-eye Concealer: When you want to conceal bags, puffiness, or a long night out try using an under eye concealer. Remember, it should be two shades lighter than your skin colour.
- Blush: This is actually optional you know. Not everyone will want to have some pink stuff on their cheeks but for slayers, blush is very important to add to your make up kit. Just a pinch of blush can make you look healthier, dewier, and more youthful. But remember, just the right amount.
- Bronzer: This is a powder or liquid makeup product applied to the face to give the skin a naturally sun kissed glow. Bronzers are typically brown and warm-toned. Whether your skin is fair or dark, your bronzer should be one to two shades darker than your natural skin tone. Avoid any orange looking bronzer as they tend to take away your natural look. Bronzers aim at giving our face a certain dimension.
- Highlighter/ Illuminator: Highlighters or illuminators call it what you want, I think they’re all the same and perform the same thing. They come in different forms like powder, liquid, cream, gloss, solid stick, and jelly. They’re all there just to show off your bone structure.
- Contour: This is when you use a matte powder, cream, or pencil product that’s two shades darker than your skin tone to shade areas you’d like to define or reshape, like your nose, forehead, chin, and cheekbones. So get you concealer
- Powder (loose): Why i put loose powder is because they create an illusion of minimized wrinkles, pores, and fine lines. You don’t want your face looking liked you dumped dirt on it or it looks cakey. Loose powder keeps your foundation and concealer in place. So go for the loose powder.
- Setting Spray: This is one of those things people put last on your face after your makeup. It helps deflect surfaces shine for a natural matte finish. Most of the ingredients used for setting sprays helps keep the foundation and makeup in place with no smudging and fading.
And there you have it, your own makeup kit is ready. Feel free to contact me for affordable makeup kits.
