One thing all girls would have in common aside from walking around in their mother’s high heels, is swiping her lipstick and trying it on themselves. You know you’ve done it, as have I . It’s almost like a right of passage for a little girl who is discovering her identity. In this vein, the older you get you also realise that you can be the best dressed everyday, but your look will always fall a little short without the right makeup. Thankfully, we’ve got you covered on all the makeup essentials you need.
It all starts with a good base. A light foundation is exactly what you need to maximise coverage and get an even tone on your skin.
A lipliner is essential to the outcome of your lip colour. This is because it fills out your lip line with the exact colour that is applied on your lips giving you a complete, full look.
You can have so much fun experimenting with your lip colour depending on your outfit or your mood. From bright hues to neutral shades, you can have your pick.
Finally, your finishing touch is a gloss, in case you don’t feel like going matte. The best part, if you can believe it, is that you can choose between a cream gloss…
…or a shimmery gloss!
If your eyes are your most prized feature, then a smart way to draw attention to them with minimal effort is to use a coloured eye liner in a metallic hue.
And there you have it! These basic products are all you really need to achieve interesting beauty looks. Just mix, match and have fun with your makeup, we say!
