Beginner’s Makeup Kit- The beginning of your 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

Makeup consealerA concealer is a type of cosmetic that is used to mask dark circles, age spots, large pores, and other small blemishes. Concealer comes in a container smaller than foundation; it is not used on your whole face.

 

 

 

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.

Hello, everyone, welcome to my My Kind Of Makeup Kits website. Makeup, beauty and skincare have been a passion of mine since I can remember. I remember being a little girl watching my mother get dressed to go out and I was just in awe because I think that my mother is one of the most beautiful mothers in the world, and one day I wanted to grow up and get all dressed up and beautified, as we call it, when I have a special event, when I was going out for a family outing, when I wanted to go out for a night on the town, or just simply going to work. I realized at an early age that makeup, beauty products and skincare, when done properly, puts a little extra something in your spirit. You feel good about yourself when your skin is clearer, or when you found the perfect shade of eye shadow to accentuate your look. No, you aren’t dependent on the makeup/ beauty products to make you happy. It is a way to express yourself, to let the world know who you are without even speaking a word.

 

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder

Growing up and going through puberty, the dreaded acne and the different changes my body was going through, I went through a period in my life where I was bullied. I was bullied for being different. No two people are the same, in fact, even identical twins are not EXACTLY the same. I want to let people from all walks of life know that it is 100% okay to be you because there is only one you and you cannot be anyone else. I was bullied for being myself, in all that I am. During this time in my life, the latter years of middle school through my first year of high school, I slipped into a dark depressive state and tried to cover up what others thought was unflattering with different fads of clothing, or different makeup trends, I mean REALLY caking it on, I wanted to COVER up who they saw.

I wanted to cover up the REAL me, the who they did not like, nor would accept. I am a woman of faith and I accept people from all different walks of life. This where God stepped in. My aunt sat me down and had a long chat with me about using makeup/beauty products as an enhancer to enhance my beauty. She let me know that if I had to cover up who I was that I did not need people like that in my life. From that day forward I used my beauty products as an enhancer, and Accentuate. I no longer hide behind my makeup/beauty products. I made this website for that purpose, to let everyone know they should not cover up who they are for anyone.

Enlighten, enable, and uplift

I want to act as a guide, a positive influence to all who grace my website with their presence. I want to help those individuals who feel like they have been someone different in order to be accepted. I am here to educate and make people aware of the Do’s and Don’t’s of skincare regimens, beauty products, and makeup tips. My goal is to learn new things everyday, as I learn new things I will share the things I have learned.

All the best,

Ye’Keiseaya
