Beginner’s Makeup Kit- Euphoria

Beginner's Makeup kit

When starting something new you have to begin somewhere, you have to make a line or some kind of indention. Rome was not built overnight, and neither will your makeup kit be built overnight. It will take some time, it will take some patience and perseverance in order to get the makeup brush going. There are several KEY components that you will need in order to achieve your beauty goals. I will only be going over the ones that I deem important followed by a list of all the items that a solid beginner’s makeup kit should entail. As with anything, you MUST lay a foundation. You will go on to seal it up, and you cannot have a fabulous face without a bronzer or eyebrows to die for.

Facial Cleanse

A beautiful face cannot be achieved without a good skincare regimen. Any good makeup kit will include a good facial cleanse product. It is imperative that you have a solid facial cleaner or cleansing product in your kit. A facial cleanser is a facial product that is used to remove makeup, dead skin cells, oil, dirt, and other types of pollutants from your skin.

This helps unclog and prevent skin conditions like, acne. A person should make removing makeup a part of their daily skincare routine because it is good for your skin. When you forget to wash your at night you increase your chances of bacteria and particles from your makeup, mascara and eyeliner, seeping into your eyes. Mascara and eyeliner seeping into your eyes can lead to discomfort and increase your chances of eye infections in the future.

Moisturizer

Face-cream-moisturizerNo one wants dull dry skin, which can be brought on by washing your face with harsh cleaners or excessive washing. You will want to include a moisturizer in your arsenal. Moisturizers do just that, moisturize. They provide your skin with what it need to be soft, supple and full of life. Moisturizers helps treat your skin when it is dry and it prevents it from drying out again; Moisturizers hold water in the outer layer of the skin.

They help protect sensitive skin, improve skin tone, texture, and mask skin imperfections. They act as a temporary barrier for your skin. This is a must have because if your skin is not moisturized properly it can and will lead to wrinkles. When the skin is dried out for a long period of time it can lead to a terrible bout of inflammation, which could lead the breaking down of collagen in the skin leading to premature aging.

Primer

Makeup primerWhen preparing your first kit you will definitely need a primer. Painters prime before they work on any canvas. Your face is your blank canvas, therefore, I feel you should use a primer. Primers create an extra layer between your skin and makeup. Priming products are predominantly used to prolong your makeup, smooth the skin surface, and even out the skin tone. Different primers can be used for the face, eyes, lips, and even the lashes.

A face primer goes underneath your makeup to help your makeup stay in place and give your complexion an evenness, a boosted glow, and extra skin benefits. In the past dermatologists have debated over if primers are really needed. Honestly, if you sweat a bit, like I do, you may need to use a  primer, but if your makeup stays in place without it and your skin is smooth without using a primer….I say go primerless. To each his or her own.

Eyebrow Pencil

Makeup eyebrow pencilHaving an efficient eyebrow pencil in your makeup arsenal is good because they are used to fill in and define the eyebrows. Eyebrow pencils are constructed from different materials. Some use Jojoba oil and Shea Butter for a smoother finish on the eyebrows, not to mention a more natural formula because the eye area tends be very delicate. Eyebrow pencils come in a vast array of colors, but it is recommended that you pick an eyebrow pencil closest to your eyebrow color.

Foundation

Powder foundationFoundations cover up imperfections, they provide a more even skin tone, and give you the look that you desire.  It helps highlights go on more smoothly. It gives the look of a light or golden tan without the risk that sunbathing entails. There are several types of foundations, they are all generally applied the same way, be it foundation brush or a sponge. Some foundations can be applied with the finger, but make sure your hands are clean because bacteria can be spread via your finger. Liquids, creams, and powder foundations all act to create a more even complexion; Foundations  create an even base for your other makeup.

 

Concealer

Highlighter

Makeup highlighterWhen I think of a highlighter, I think… Let there be LIGHT!!!! A highlighter attracts light, creating the illusion of brightness and height. It makes you seem like you are glowing. They enhance your skin giving it a more misty glow. Every makeup kit should include this little life changer.

Setting Spray

Makeup setting sprayIf you want to go swimming this baby is your go to. It could rain cats and dogs and you would still be looking as beautiful as ever, as long as you MAKE SURE it is a waterproof setting spray. Setting is a must in any kit, it was designed to make your makeup last longer.  When you think of setting spray think of a concrete slab or beam they are budge proof and  setting spray will make your makeup  budge proof. Your makeup will stay where you put it regardless of the weather or any situation.

Conclusion

I believe that if you start strong you will finish strong. A person’s makeup kit should reflect who they are. It should reflect their creative side, and it should be something they want it to be. As I stated in my introduction, there are many components that should make up your starter makeup kit. But here is a full list for those who are curious.

    This is a very good article, my daughter is just beginning to use make up and this will be a great place for her to start! I have hurried to explain these things but obviously I don’t know where to start as a dad. Thank you so much for sharing this, I can’t wait to show her these tips to get going!

      Thanks so much. I never thought about the millions of dads I’d be helping. I really appreciate the fact that you appreciate me.

    I loved this article because I am an artist at heart (though not by profession) and I LOVE makeup and making up my face. You’re absolutely right, good skin care is the basis for a beautifully made up face; But there is one thing that I do not have in my makeup bag because I was unaware of it, and that is highlighter! How did I not know about this? Why don’t I see higherlighter commercials on T.V.? Can I get it at the drugstore? 

    After I read your article, that was the only beauty tip I still have questions about, but I will be sure to add it to my makeup arsenal. May I also be bold and say that you left out ‘mascara’ which I consider one of my favorite makeup tools. Thanks from all of us who love to keep our faces lovely!

      I have no idea why there aren’t any highlighter commercials on TV. Yes, you can get good highlighters at drugstores. Just shop around and compare prices before you buy. And I know I left it out. I personally don’t use mascara much unless I wear lash extensions. Plus, if I listed EVERYTHING I would be writing all day long. You’re welcome.

    What a great rundown on the different products needed for your makeup routine. This is vital for those new to makeup! It can be so overwhelming with so many products out there, so this helps bring it to the point and summarize things. It is very easy to read. The funny thing is you actually left out my favorite things: blush/bronzer and mascara! There are so many days that all I do is wash, moisturize, through some color on my cheeks, mascara and go! I really don’t know what I would do without these products.

  6. Paula says:

    There are some products here I didn’t know existed. Setting spray for one. I must be shopping cheap makeup because I have never seen this before. Very interesting. What is your feeling on organic or natural makeup? Do you think it matters or do you have a preference? Thanks for a great article. 

    • YeKeiseaya Fugerson says:

      Setting spray is a hidden gem. A lot of people don’t know about it. I like organic products. I tell people do what’s best for you. Only the person who read this article will know what is a fit for them. Also, you have to do a bit of trial and error with makeup, skin care and beauty products.

    Makeup is used for a beautiful and feminine look. It can be accentuated like eyes and lips, and serves to cover up what one wants to criticize. I see that it exists in different colors and shades. .I believe that people will buy such well presented cosmetic products.Especially when the products are well described.I will look to buy a woman some of these products.

    Hi YeKeiseaya,

    Thanks a lot for the informative article.

    I was searching for some information on the make-up kit and your article is a greater help. I am planning to gift my wife with a make-up kit for her birthday. I wanted to get some basic idea on the make-up kit and I got helpful insights from your article.

    Eyebrow Pencil and Lip color is all my wife got. I need to purchase the rest of the things on your list. The description you have provided about each component is very helpful in my understanding.

    You have given me plenty to think about here. This article is so thorough it opened my eyes to all sorts of information I wasn’t aware of!
