Whether you are making your first makeup kit or renewing it, some products are must-haves. These fives items are the BASICS you will need, especially if you are a beginner.
For each category, you will find 3 options : drugstore / mid -rande / high-end. I have tested every single one of these items and I can recommend all of them, although I am highlighting my personal favorites.
Tinted Moisturizer / BB Cream
I like tinted moisturizer because they are light, yet they unify and boost your skin. If you hate foundation or find it too difficult to wear, it is also the best alternative because you will eventually have some days when you need to improve your complexion but don't want look like you have makeup on.
I don't think I can survive without concealer. It refreshens the face and erase those ugly dark circles and blemishes.
Mascara is every girl's best friend. The since the eyes are the mirror of the soul, why not enhance the frame?
Another important frame of your eyes, but also to your face are the eyebrows. I personally cannot go out of the house without doing my eyebrows. Filling up the missing spots and brushing them will add 15 seconds to your routine but completely improve your look.
I hesitate a lot for this last one, thinking of blush at first. However, bronzer is usually easier to chose because it does not only warm up the face but it is also impossible to miss (except if you abuse from it all over the face...like anything in make-up!). Use it with a 3-motion or just on the apple of your cheeks to add some color, to achieve a fresh looking complexion.
