Everyone has their go-to makeup kit that consists of certain makeup products that they personally cannot live without. The kind of products in your kit will vary depending upon whether you are a makeup newbie or a rookie. But even so, there are certain makeup products that every girl will most definitely use.

If you are planning to curate a makeup bag with essential products, then we are here to make things easier for you. Below is a quick brush up on all the essential makeup products that a girl needs to have in her kitty and how to use them for best results.

 

Foundation

Foundation

A foundation helps even out your skin tone by cancelling out skin imperfections. When buying a foundation, it is important to pick a shade that is closest to your natural skin tone for a flawless finish. To make your foundation appear skin-like, apply it using a damp makeup sponge, in a dabbing motion.

 

Concealer

Concealer

Concealer is usually the next step after foundation. It is used to cover all the imperfections that the foundation may have failed to conceal. It is usually applied in the under-eye area and over blemishes to make your entire face look flawless and even-toned. Simply apply a little bit of the product in the under-eye area and over blemishes. Using a concealer brush or makeup sponge, dab the product for a very air-brushed and skin-like finish.

 

Blush

Blush

If you are a makeup newbie, blush could be one of those tricky products, because if done wrong, it can end up making you look like a clown. Start by using very little product and then build it up if necessary. Additionally, it is important to use a blush texture that matches your skin type. If you have dry, combination or normal skin, we recommend that you use a cream blush. People with oily skin should ideally use a powder-based blush.

 

Mascara

Mascara

Oh the drama that a little bit of mascara brings to your lashes! A swipe of mascara is enough to make your eyes look bigger, brighten up your face and make you look more awake instantly. After curling your lashes, wipe off the mascara from the wand and apply it to your lashes. Use a smaller wand for your lower lashes because there is a lesser surface area to work with.

 

Lipstick

Lipstick

For a flawless lipstick application, it is really important to first line your lips using a lip liner. This prevents the lipstick from bleeding. Additionally, it is very important to avoid applying lipstick directly from the tube or bullet. For a more precise application, we recommend that you apply it using a lip brush.
