The beginner's make-up guide

March 25, 2015



I wanted to write something about a make-up starter kit, because I know how hard it was for me to find the beauty items I really needed. Building a make-up collection is quite hard when you don’t know where to start. I didn’t know what a foundation, bronzer, highlighter etc. was until I watched a couple youtube videos and even then I didn’t know whether I actually needed it. It was a strange world, but it had always intrigued me. So, I started buying the first beauty items and slowly but surely my collection grew. I still am not a make-up professional, but I thought it might be interesting for you to read what I think is necessary in a make-up stash.

A high-coverage concealer
I can’t live without a good concealer on spotty and dark days. Concealing imperfections is always a good start of the day. I absolutely love my cheap Catrice concealer, because the coverage is amazing and it even hides the most annoying, red spots. 

A long lasting foundation
I don’t know about you, but I want my foundation to stay on all day long. I hate it when foundations get shiny and start fading during the day. The one I’ve always loved using is a Essence foundation, it’s super smooth and so easy to apply.

Bronzer, blusher and highlighter
These are the three things I love to cheer up my face and create a healthy-looking make-up look. A foundation can leave your skin very pale-looking and unnatural. 

The eye basics
A good mascara makes your eyes bigger and brighter so you instantly look better. I don’t like spending too much money on mascara because my lashes are naturally long and dark. I personally prefer a light nude-colored eye shadow look, because it’s more natural and enhances the beauty of your eyes.

Lipstick
This is something I love to wear, but if you’re not much of a lipstick-lover, you can skip this step. The basic lip colors in my stash are: a really dark color, a Parisian red, a nude lipstick and a peach lip color. 

I hope this was a bit helpful to you and don’t hesitate to let me know what your make-up stash basics are!
