“A smile is the best makeup any girl can wear”
There are a few makeup basic essentials that every girl needs.While I am not a makeup expert, I have learned many basics tips that are important in my daily routine. I have tested several products and I have stay with the ones that give great results. I like my makeup to look natural and to achieve that we need the right tools. Another fact to know is which makeup product to buy according to our skin type. Mine is oily so I can’t buy any foundation or powder. I need one that’s oil free and that keeps me shine free.
Face: I like to have two types of foundation one with full coverage and one lightweight with less coverage for daily basis. I love the MUFE HD foundation but if you are like me with oily skin I wouldn’t recommend it. It gets my face crazy oily. I use some other products like Ben Nye Neutral Set powder to keep my face shine free. I want to try out MUFE Mat Velvet, which is a matifying foundation.
We need also a concealer that’s lightweight that wont crease. My favorite is Maybelline Instant Age Rewind.
Powder texture is important depending on the look we want. Compact powder is great for touch ups. It gives a smooth opaque finish. While loose powder provides coverage and a sheer finish.
My favorite tools are Sigma F30 large powder and Sigma F80 Flat kabuki brush for my foundation. Which is the best. If you want to try out a foundation brush this is the one.
Eyes: I like my lashes long and thick. My favorite is Benefit they’re Real! This is the best mascara ever. We also need a waterproof mascara Covergirl lashbast volume is a great one. Is so waterproof that only comes off with makeup remover.I sometimes curl my lashes to achieve longer lashes. This step is before applying the mascara.
I like most of the time to wear neutral eyeshadow and Urban Decay Naked Basics is perfect for girls who like neutral eyeshadow. There are several eyeliners textures that we can try. Gel liners and cake liners are long wearing and most of the time doesn’t smudge compared to pencils. Pencils are easy to apply while the gel and cake requires a brush.
My favorite brushes are: Sigma E40 Tapered blending, E55 Eye Shading and E15 Flat definer which I use with my cake liner.
Lips: We need a light or nude lipstick for everyday basis and a playful one for when we go out on dates for example. It is important to know lipsticks textures for example buying a matte lipstick implies that is going to last longer. And of course we need a gloss! Gloss give a different look to any makeup.
My favorite lipsticks are: MAC Creme Cup,Angel & Pink Nouveau.
