KEEPING UP WITH MAKE UP: 10 MUST-HAVES FOR YOUNG ADULTS!
Here’s the ultimate list to include in your vanity kit:
Nothing accentuates the eye more than the mascara. Simple and elegant, it makes them the hero as it shifts the focus around that area. Just one or two applications and you are set for the day!
I recommend: Benefit s ‘they’re Real’/ Clinique Long lash doubling Mascara.
While many still opt for foundation, I personally recommend tinted moisturizers as they are easy on the skin, have SPF and look more natural and less cakey. The main idea is to look as natural as possible and tinted moisturizers work best.
I recommend: Inglot’s ‘Tinted Moisturizer’
As ‘au naturale’ as it could get, the bronzer is a must buy makeup essential. It can be lightly dusted on the cheeks, forehead, the jaw line to highlight your features. A diagonal stroke on the cheek bone can help contour the face even further. It should be applied after a base to make it look even or else result in a patchy disaster.
I recommend: Maybeline Mineral Power Bronzer
4. LIP GLOSS
A girl’s first friend in makeup, lip gloss comes handy in everyday use. It works well for both a morning and an evening look.Nudes work best in the day while bright eye popping colours work well at night.
I recommend: Sephora’s Glossy Gloss
5. EYE LINER
A very versatile and handy element for women of all ages, the eyeliner accentuates the eye and makes them look gorgeous. One can don the ‘cat eye’, ‘Egyptian’ and various other looks as per one’s mood and the occasion.
I recommend: Makeup Forever Liquid Liner
The least noticed but the most important component of eye makeup is the eye primer.Lets just say its an invisible cream which seals the deal when applying a dapper shade of eye shadow on the lid.
I recommend: Inglot’s ‘Eye Makeup Base’
7. PIGMENT EYE SHADOW
The ultimate statement for all the party birds out there, it works brilliantly for evening occasions. Wearing them in the day can be quite the unwanted disaster. You need to apply a primer as a base before applying these crushed pigments of ecstasy for the ultra glam look.
I recommend: MAC Crushed eye pigments
As the name suggests it conceals all the possible flaws on the face specifically key areas like the nose, under eye and all the uneven regions on the face, dark spots, pimples etc. It is applied before the base. Select a shade lighter than your skin when buying one.
I recommend: Maybeline’s Concealer
Whether constantly on the go in the sun or indoors, sunscreen should be applied nonetheless to prevent premature ageing of the skin,tanning and other skin related problems.
I recommend: Nivea Sun Whitening SPF 50
Which girl can stop drooling over her signature red lipstick? I really think none. While there are a diverse range of lipstick shades, one should choose a shade that work best with their skin tones. MAC, Bobby Brown & Chanel are a few good options to choose from.The absolute must have shade is red, it is timeless and a classic component in makeup.
I recommend: Elizabeth Arden’s Red-Orange
