What should a makeup beginner do and buy?

With the abundance of beauty products available these days, it is rather difficult to understand what is essential for a simple natural look if you do not plan to wear anything extraordinary on your face. You may yet not know anything about makeup at any age though experimenting with your look might surprise and please you.

The main tasks of basic makeup: 

• Disguise skin imperfections 

• Refresh complexion 

• Emphasize natural beauty

Here are some basic steps you can take to start off this process.

Even skin tone 

Perfect skin and even tone are the dreams of every woman! Just a few products in a cosmetic bag can correct all skin imperfections and refresh its tone.

SPF 15 Leveling Makeup Foundation is a perfect makeup base. What is the base for? It creates an invisible layer on your skin that helps even out the surface of your skin, allowing you to apply your foundation evenly, and helps your foundation lasts as long as possible.

If the skin is prone to redness and has some imperfections or pigmentation, pay attention to creams with SPF 15, which helps create excellent colour correction and even skin tone.

If you have oily or dry skin, the ideal solution is to choose a foundation for your skin type. For oily skin types, choose mattifying foundations that provide hours of shine control. Dry skin, on the other hand, requires hydration.

To make your makeup last all day, you need to fix it with powder. Compact powder for oily skin also helps control unwanted shine.


Do not forget about the blush! If you wear foundation or CC cream, your radiant blush can be hidden under a layer of foundation, and your face will not look natural. You should choose the colour depending on your natural skin tone:

  • Light skin – light corals, soft pinks, and peaches.
  • Medium skin – warm mauves, rich pinks, and deep peaches.
  • Dark skin – warm browns, deep fuchsias, and tangerines.


Gorgeous eyebrows are the trend of any season! Ideally, you need two eyebrow products: an eyebrow gel and an eyebrow pencil. However, if your brows are full enough, you can just use the gel.


Well-groomed lips are a necessary part of the image! The skin of the lips does not have sebaceous glands. In addition, the skin on the lips is much thinner than on other parts of the face, so it often peels off. For this reason, lips are prone to dryness and cracking.

The best option for basic makeup and a neutral look is lipgloss. In the evening you may prefer a more complicated option: lip liner and lipstick.
