Foundation and Concealer

Foundation is the cornerstone of your makeup routine. It’s what you apply to your skin to even it out and create a canvas for your other products. There are many different types of foundation, so it’s important to choose the right one for your needs. Foundation can be used to cover blemishes, dark circles under your eyes, scars, or redness on your face. You want a formula that doesn’t feel cakey or oily on your face, but instead provides a smooth canvas for your makeup products. 

Foundation can be used to cover up a variety of skin concerns, such as marks, acne, wrinkles, and scars. For example, if you suffer from acne, a compact foundation with an acne-fighting formula can be a great option to help cover your marks while you treat your skin. And its coverage depends on the occasion like if you are using it on daily basis it should be light coverage and if it is used on a wedding day with heavy bridal dress and jewelry than full coverage is recommended depending on the type of skin you have.

Because foundation is designed to even out skin tone, it can also be used to camouflage darker skin issues, like blemishes and scars. For example, if you have dark marks on your neck or shoulders, you can apply foundation to even them out and make them less noticeable.

Blush and Bronzer

The right blush and bronzer will add depth and dimension to your makeup look, making your complexion appear fuller and more vibrant. These products are ideal for contouring your face, mixing with your foundation to draw attention to your eyes or cheeks. You should also consider investing in a high-shine bronzer, which can be used to create a sun-kissed look or used as an eye shadow if you prefer a matte finish. 

Different skin tones need different products to achieve the best results. For example, if you have very fair skin, a high-shimmer bronzer will make it appear darker and more vibrant. If you have darker skin, a matte bronzer can be used to even out your complexion and create a sun-kissed effect.

Eye Shadow and Eyeliner

Eye shadows are the perfect accessory for blending in with your foundation, blush, and bronzer. Choose a shade that matches your skin tone and is close enough to your natural colour so it doesn’t look fake. There are so many options when it comes to eye shadow colours, so you should choose one that complements your natural tone, while also complementing your makeup look. 

You can use eye shadows in a variety of ways, from applying them wet, using them dry, or using a sponge to blend them together. Choose pencil-style eye shadow if you tend to draw outlines with your finger and pencil or want a simple, natural look. Eyeliner is perfect for sharpening your wing or tail before adding your eye shadow. It can also be used to add a pop of colour if you’re feeling creative.

Mascara and Eyebrow Products

Mascara is the final component of your makeup look, and it can dramatically impact your appearance. A good mascara can help lengthen, thicken, and curl your lashes, making them appear thicker and more voluminous. There are different types of mascara, such as waterproof, which can be used in the rain or pool. 

There are also different formulas that can be used for added length, definition, or curl. You should also consider investing in a lash primer to prep your lashes before applying mascara so they look their best when finished. If you typically have sparse brows, you can choose an eyebrow pencil that matches your eye shadow or a brow powder that can be used to fill in your brows.

Lipstick and Lip Gloss

A lipstick or lip gloss is the finishing touch for your makeup look. Choose a shade that complements your natural lip colour and complements your skin tone, and it will make your lips appear fuller and more natural. There are a variety of lip gloss formulas, from silky to matte, so you can find one that suits your needs the best. 

If you have a wedding or special occasion coming up and want your makeup to look more professional, a lipstick or gloss in a wedding-worthy shade can make a big difference. You can also choose a bold colour that complements your outfit, such as red, or a more subtle colour, such as nude. 

Lipsticks come in a variety of shades, so you can find one that suits your needs best. For example, if you have light skin, you might prefer a light, natural shade. If you have medium skin, you might prefer a deeper, richer colour.

Makeup Brushes

Finally, you’ll want to invest in good makeup brushes, which can help you apply your makeup evenly and create flawless looks. Choose a set with a variety of brushes for application, including a foundation brush for applying your foundation, a concealer brush for covering blemishes or under-eye circles, a blush brush for lightly adding colour to your cheeks, and an angled brush for applying your eyeliner or eyeshadow smoothly. 

Good makeup brushes can make a huge difference in the quality of your makeup looks, so it’s worth the investment. Choose a brush set that has a variety of brushes, from a blush brush to an angled brush, so you can use different brushes for different looks.

Makeup Sponges

These sponges are one of the most essential products you can add to your kit. Today, there are so many options to choose from, it can be confusing which one to buy. It’s important to note that makeup brushes can be costly, and some of the more popular brands like Too Faced, MAC, and Morphe are often too pricey for beginners. 

To make things easier, we recommend investing in a makeup sponge that has a large surface area and allows for flexibility. This will make it easier to apply foundation evenly and remove excess product from the sponge. Makeup sponges are also great for blending out your concealer, applying your blush, and blending out your eyebrows. You can find different color options, shapes, and sizes to fit your needs.

Tips for Choosing the Right Products

  • Make sure the sponge is big enough to fit all the products in your makeup kit. 
  • Make sure the sponge is absorbent enough to pick up excess product without leaving a trace on the surface. 
  • Make sure you buy makeup sponges that are washable to make clean up easier.
  • Make sure you are using the right sponge for your makeup needs. 
  • Foundation – Don’t use a sponge that is too sponge-y for foundation due to the density of liquid. You can use a sponge that is a little denser for foundation, but it should be able to pick up the product without leaving a trace. 
  • Concealer – Make sure to use a sponge that is a little sponge-y for concealer due to the viscous texture of liquid or cream products. 
  • Blush – Blush products should be able to pick up the product from the sponge, but should not leave a trace of the product on the sponge. 
  • Eyeshadow – You want the sponge for eyeshadow to be sponge-y enough to pick up the product and still adhere to the surface.

Finding the Right Products for Your Skin Type and Complexion

Different skin types have different needs when it comes to makeup. To find the best products for your skin type and complexion, you’ll need to know your skin type and any existing skin issues. As a general rule of thumb, you can categorize skin types as oily, dry, sensitive, or combo. 

While these don’t explain every skin type, they help you narrow down your needs. For example, if you have oily skin, you’ll want to buy products that are oil-free, while someone with sensitive skin may want to stick to formulas that are fragrance-free. Once you know your skin type and complexion, you can look out for products that are formulated with skincare in mind, such as oil-free or non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores).

Tips for Creating a Professional-Looking Makeup Look

  • Make sure all your products are easily accessible. 
  • Make sure all your products are clean and properly sanitized. 
  • Make sure your brushes are properly sanitized after each use. 
  • Make sure you wear a light base before applying your foundation. 
  • Make sure you sweep your face with a dry sponge before applying any foundation. 
  • Make sure you close your eyes before applying any makeup to allow the product to settle properly. 
  • Make sure you finish off your makeup look with a layer of concealer and a dusting of translucent powder. 
  • Apply your foundation first. 
  • Apply your concealer and foundation in a thin layer, followed at the centre of your face and then blend outward. 
  • Apply your eyeshadow eyes at the centre of your lid and sweep outward. 
  • Apply your blush on your cheeks at the apples of your face and blend outward. 
  • Apply your liner on your lash line and on your upper waterline.
