Every makeup kit should be stocked with a few essential items for easy and hassle free makeup application. Your vanity cases cannot do without:

  1. Makeup Primer
  2. Foundation
  3. Concealer
  4. Blush or highlighter
  5. Eye shadow (in varied shades), eye liner and mascara
  6. Lips sticks (in varied shades), lip liner and lip gloss.

If your makeup kit is missing out on any of these items, purchase it from your local cosmetic store. One should always use good quality cosmetic products even if they cost a few extra bucks. Poor quality products can damage your skin and result in breakouts.

1. Foundation

The foundation is the base of your entire makeup. Given below are tips to get it right.

  1. Foundation should be applied lightly and not in thick heavy layers (caked-up look). It should be adequate enough to cover up skin imperfections.
  2. The foundation tone should match your natural skin tone. Test in natural light to find the color closest to your skin tone.
  3. Foundation should be applied evenly and blended well. Remember to blend foundation at the jaw-line, hairline, near the ears and neck.
