Makeup starter kit

So starting makeup can be quite tricky! With all different brands of makeup and variety of products to choose from it’s hard to figure out where to start. Going into the drug store can be hard and overwhelming when you are starting off with makeup as you are not sure what products work best. So I have decided to create a blog post of my favorite drugstore makeup products that I would recommend beginners to start off with.

Foundation Rimmel London Lasting Finish- This foundation is a light to medium coverage foundation that is buildable. It lasts all day therefore you do not need to worry about your makeup slipping off. 

BB cream Rimmel BB cream- BB creams are good to use on a day where you don’t want to wear a lot of makeup but you need to if you are not having a good skin day for example if you have a lot of hyper pigmentation or blemishes. This will even out your skin tone without looking like you are wearing anything. This is also long lasting.

Concealer Collection Lasting Perfection- This is an amazing product that has been raved about by everyone. This concealer will cover up any blemish you have. It is thick therefore it gives a perfect coverage. I would not use it under the eyes because it will crease but anywhere else is fine. This also lasts all day.

Powder Rimmel Stay Matte- This powder will set your makeup perfectly, taking away the shine so you stay matte for as long as possible. I would only apply this lightly to the T-Zone. It will also last a long time and it is compact therefore it can easily be thrown into your makeup bag for touch ups throughout the day.

Bronzer Bourjois Elice De Poudre- This bronzer will give you a bronzed look evenly around your face. It isn’t pigmented which means you will not go overboard. You can build it till you’re satisfied with the look. 

Eyebrows Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil- This pencil will fill in your brows to give them a more defined look. The pencil also has a brush on the end so that you can brush product out of them and put them into place. 

Mascara Rimmel Lash Accelerator- This mascara will lengthen your lashes and give them a lot of volume to give you perfect big black lashes.

Lips Rimmel Appocolips- This lipstick is in liquid form which will give you a glossy finish to the lips, they have a good applicator which will make it easy for you to apply if you are just starting makeup. 

I hope this has helped you get an idea of where to start with your makeup collection. This is personally my opinion for a basic starter kit. If you have any other products that you think are perfect for a makeup starter kit please leave them in the comments below.
