The Basics for Beginners ✔

Hey there my Simple Ladies :)
How many of you ladies are new to the make-up world or are just getting into it, buuut you don't know where to start. When I first started I had the same problem but thank god I had my friend there to guide me threw it. And then I was wondering, how many ladies out there are still having  problems with that. Soo I decided that I will be making a post just to give you an idea on the beginners make-up essentials that you should have.
And since you're just getting started you don't need allot of makeup. 

         First of all you would wanna start with a makeup bag obviously or else were would your makeup go :P

The first product that would be good to have in your makeup bag is a tinted lip balm, cause it's very sheer and it wont look to bold and heavy and it will give you a little bit of shine. 

Another makeup that you should have is a concealer 
Concealer is for dark under-eye circles, blemishes, spots and discoloration. If you are going to use it for under-eye circles, apply concealer first, then foundation. For blemishes and pimple coverage, apply foundation first or the concealer will be rubbed away in the foundation application.
Remember that you are trying to achieve a consistent skin tone, so experiment with different shades and formulas to find a solution that meets your specific needs.

So a black mascara opens the eyes and gives the lashes a fuller effect. Even though you can pick from many different shades, black will give you the best outcome for a set of full, thick lashes that everyone will envy. However, if you have very light hair and skin you may find that very black mascara may be to overwhelming.  So you can try using a brown/black mascara to not overwhelm your look.

When you are going to apply your eye liner, the line should be very thin at the eye's corner and widen as it goes on. you can also add tails (wings or cat eye's). It can get difficult because, you can have the problem that the tails are two different lengths or shapes. If needed, make a small dot, that you will not notice after application where you would like the liner to end. Once the marks are even draw the tail. You can start at the dot and connect it to the existing liner or vice versa 

The first thing you will want to decide is which kind of formulation you want. Besides the standard liquid and powder versions, you also have the choice of mousse, cream and spray foundation. A better way to decide your option is to choose based on your type of skin. Like for example, oily skin should opt for a powder foundation as it will help to mattify shine and it will not feel heavy or greasy on your skin. Cream foundation are a smart choice for woman with dry skin as they tend to be more moisturizing.

Last but not least a neutral eye shadow palette.
I find it very important that as a beginner with makeup it's best for you to start with a Neutral eye shadow.
Why, cause most of the color are soft and  neutral so if  you make a mistake it won't be that visible. Apply a light, neutral tone all over your lid and just above your crease and use a slightly darker to softly line the top lid and outline your crease (for a more natural look you can blend the colors)

I hope that this has helped you & please remember that these are what I think that is essential for someone to have as a beginner it's not a must
