Back to Basics | Makeup starter kit

Today's post is about products that are 'needed' to start a makeup kit. These are just some of the things I think are best products to start off a makeup kit! 

First things first, a great base needs to be created. For this if you are a total beginner in makeup, a bb cream might be best because it gives a light coverage otherwise I would use a foundation like Rimmel 'Wake me up' foundation £8.99 which helps make skin appear more awake and light but still only have a light to medium coverage.

Next a powder for me is vital, especially because I have oily/combination skin. I suggest something like Miss Sporty 'So clear' transparent powder £2.99  I have already featured this powder in My recent beauty buys post but it helps matte down skin and reduce shine. 

One thing that can change a face are eyebrows, which Is why I think that a brow mascara is a must have. I suggest one by Mua £2 to start off a makeup kit because it's really affordable and is easy to  brush through your eyebrows to add colour and define, it's really that simple! 

For lips I suggest something like this Collection 2000 lip butter £2.99 . Lipsticks are too much to put in a starter kit but using a lip butter means your lips are moisturised but they come in a range of colours, so colour can be added to your lips.

And finally the most important thing in my makeup bag for me is mascara! I use the Maybelline 'Rocket volum' mascara £7.99 . It thickens and adds colour to your lashes!

This is my idea of a makeup starter kit!

  4. I'm actually looking to purchase a bb cream to at least start me off on the makeup world since I don't actually use much makeup. Nice post, thanks for sharing!
