9 Must-Have Makeup Tools for Beginners
Makeup Tools – Interested in cosmetics or makeup but don’t know where to start? Here are nine makeup tools that you should know.
In the past, you might not be interested in makeup or makeup. But after seeing the photos or videos of beauty bloggers, how come it’s fun to play with makeup?
Mastering makeup techniques can not only hide flaws on your face but also enhance your natural beauty. Once you can apply your own makeup, it’s even more fun because you can imitate trendy makeup styles like fake freckles, for example.
However, there is no need to be tempted to buy too many makeup tools. As suggested by makeup artist and owner of Beauty Asylum, Jessica Kendall, here are some must-have makeup tools for beginners.
Primer basically helps you prepare your face for makeup and stays on all day long. The surface of the facial skin becomes even so that foundation can be applied more easily. This is a solution for those of you whose facial pores are enlarged, the skin begins to show fine lines or redness because the primer will close the pores.
The foundation helps to even out skin tone so it’s ready for makeup. For starters, choose a foundation with a light formula so that it covers the skin well. To avoid a cakey look, where the makeup doesn’t seem to stick perfectly to the face, use a beauty sponge to absorb the foundation better.
Then need a concealer to disguise the spots on the face. There are two types of concealer to choose from, namely face and eye concealer. Eye concealer that contains moisturizer will soften fine lines under the eyes. While face concealer tends to be denser and dry, so it is better for covering blemishes and discoloration on the face.
The powder is of course a must-have makeup tool for beginners. You can use loose powder or compact powder if you need a quick touch-up. Always carry this compact powder in your bag because it is practical and easy to use, thus helping to secure your makeup after wearing it all day. Especially for those of you who have oily or combination skin.
Beautiful eyes can be more beautiful through the use of eyeshadow. Try an eyeshadow palette with neutral or nude colors first, to practice eyeshadow application techniques. Even though we call it neutral, this palette usually offers all the colors women need (taupe, bronze, brown, and beige) to create natural makeup in any setting.
Eyeliner is glamorous and sexy, so if you want to quickly turn your morning into evening makeup, you can apply eyeliner. Choose a pencil eyeliner so it doesn’t fall apart easily if you’re not good at applying it. Don’t worry, there are many pencil eyeliners that have long-lasting results.
Its function is not only to lengthen eyelashes, but also to thicken, darken, and curl so that the eyes come alive. So, it’s also a must-have makeup tool for beginners. But if you are not patient enough to use it, you can try wearing false eyelashes with the most natural model.
Blush can make your face look fresh and radiant. Choose a color that matches your skin tone and shapes your cheeks and jaw well. For beginners, choose a powder blush with coral, light pink, or peach tones for fair skin, or plum, rose, and dark colors for darker skin.
Lipstick color options are endless, but it’s a good idea to choose a shade slightly darker than your lip color. Gradually, you can choose a stronger color like coral, berry, or pink. To be sure, red lipstick must be in your collection because this color can completely change your face.
