10 Essential Makeup Must-Haves For Beginners

Are you an absolute beginner in makeup? No worries, it doesn’t need to be complicated. Here’s a simple 10-minute makeup routine that'll give you an easy, natural look.

Step 1: Prep the Skin 

If you tried to get your hands on makeup and wonder why your makeup doesn’t turn out right, it's all in the prep! It's important to apply your makeup on fresh, clean skin. Applying a good primer to protect your skin will also help your makeup to last longer.

Step 2: Start with your base

i) Think about the amount of coverage you want. If you have any blemishes or redness, cover them up with concealer.

ii) If you want light day-to-day coverage, perhaps a BB cream is best for you. There’s CC cream/cushion (our founder Sasha’s favorite), which is a multi-tasker that helps prime, hydrate and protect your skin while providing seamless natural coverage.

iii) If you want more longer lasting coverage and a flawless base, then consider foundation. Just remember to match your coverage to your skin tone.

Step 3. Brow

Eyebrows may be the most important part of your face, they’re a feature of your expression! Well-defined eyebrows can change your impression to others. Choose whether you’d like to use powder or a pencil. Powder will give a softer look, while pencil is more intense.

There you go, follow these quick steps and you'll get a natural makeup look that will make your day better!
