Discover, shop and express your style

So this is just a tip for anyone who wants to start wearing makeup but doesn't know where to start! I would suggest to go slowly and just buy a few things at a time to find what's right for you. 

~ x THE BASiCS x ~

skin :

~ concealer: use this to cover any blemishes - circles under your eyes, red marks etc. there are a few different types of concealer - you can get liquid, solid, or powder.
Solid concealers usually provide the best coverage so I would suggest one of these for a beginner. a colour close to your skin colour or slightly lighter is best.

~ face: for your face you can use foundation, tinted moisturiser or BB cream. foundation provides more coverage than the others. find a colour closest to your skin tone.

~powder: this is used to set your foundation. you can get translucent or coloured - it doesn't really matter which you use. 

eyes :

~ mascara: brown or black mascara will darken your eyelashes and make them look longer.

~ eyeliner: brown or black - this also makes your eyelashes look longer but also makes your eyes stand out a lot and makes them pop :)

~ eyeshadow: neutral eyeshadow is best for everyday makeup. it highlights your eyes and adds dimension

lips :

~ lip balm: this is a must for dry lips - it moisturises your lips and make them feel and look better

~ lip gloss - some lip glosses will only add shine to your lips but others will add a bit of colour. 

~ x ADD SOME COLOUR! x ~

if you want more of a colourful look, you can add:

~ blush - this adds colour to your cheeks and makes you look healthy!

~ bronzer - adds definition to your cheek bones 

~ coloured eye shadow - you can add colour to your eyes but make sure not to overdo it - too much can look trashy. use a colour that complements your eyes or matches your outfit.

~ lipstick: this will add a strong colour to your lips and make them stand out! 

I hope you liked this tip! :) if you have any questions or requests make sure to comment or PM me!! :) xxxx
