I love my colours and have amassed a huge collection of colour cosmetics. Infact when people visit my home and accidentally see my vanity they go in to shock lol. However, In reality if you see need vs want,there a few items that any girl or lady absolutely needs. Everything else is optional! But I do see a lot of queries coming in on what are the basic makeup items that girl should have.In this post I have tried to include things that will take you through any and every occasion/event/work/college etc. Read on:
Foundation: First up , if you have clear skin , kudos.. dont buy foundation if you dont need it. A light sweep of BB cream or TM and you topped with compact and you are set to do your face. However if you have blemishes, dark circles or any sort of marks on your skin, its very important to mask them with a concealer .
Kohl pencil is probably the first thing all Indian girls use and with good reason. Kohl pencil instantly lifts the face and make eyes look alluring and attractive. However invest in a smudge proof one . Kyolan Ikonic gel liner pencil and Lakme Eyeconic are good options.
Mascara: Its amazing what mascara can do ! Mascara darkens and lengthens the lashes and gives a wide eyed look to the face, Who doesnt want that right?I nfact i know some people who will not step out of the house without mascara even if they have no other makeup on.Invest in a black and a clear mascara .Clear mascara can be used to keep brows in shape and is a great option for college going girls where a black a mascara may look too done up! One rarely sees Kareena Kapoor without kajal, mascara and lip gloss
Nude lipgloss: A nude shimmery lipgloss goes a long way in any makeup kit. Its one of those products that one can use without thinking. Its perfect for a polished look at work or for toning down a very dark lipstick or with smokey eyes!
Blushes in Peach and coral: Peach and Coral are two shades that work across a variety of skin tones. A peach blush can add warmth to the face and a coral blush adds instant freshness. A blush is a highly underrated product , but nothing can give one that totally polished look without a hint of color on your cheeks.
Lipsticks in peach,coral and pink: These three colours match with most outfits and also instantly brighten up the face However , be sure to pick up the right shade of lipstick for your skin tone or it may wash you out totally !
Once you have these essentials, you can play with colors and textures and decide what suits you the best and build you collection from there.
What would you consider as your makeup essentials?
