10 Makeup Products Every Beginner Should Own

We all have our makeup routines and some of us have been wearing it for years. This article is for the newbies out there who want to start doing their own makeup. There are so many products on the market, it can be overwhelming!

So I have put together a list of 10 makeup products every beginner should own:



Foundation is the base of your makeup. It evens out your skin tone and covers any redness or discoloration. Your foundation should match your natural skin tone, but be a few shades lighter than it. This will help prevent you from looking too cakey or like you have no pores.

If you're new to wearing foundation, I suggest using a brush instead of fingers so that you can apply it evenly across the entire face (and not just where it feels good). You'll want to start at one side of your face and work from there!


Concealer is a must-have for any beginner makeup artist, as it can be used to hide blemishes and dark circles. However, it is not a replacement for foundation or concealer; rather, it should be applied after you have put on your full face of makeup. Concealer should always be applied with a brush, no fingers allowed!

If you are using concealer on your lips (a practice I don't recommend), use a shade lighter than whatever lipstick color you are wearing so that your lips appear fuller without looking unnatural.


Powder is a must-have for any makeup kit. It can be used to set your foundation, reduce shine and even out skin tone. There are many different kinds of powder on the market, but we recommend using one that has been specifically designed for oily skin types.

Blush is a great way to add color to your face and can be used in many ways. It's one of the most versatile products in your makeup arsenal, so it's important for beginners to own at least one shade of blush.

Blush can be used to define cheekbones, brighten up dull skin and draw attention to the eyes. It will also help you look younger if you're trying out that "no makeup" look that everyone seems so fond of these days!


Eyeliner is a great way to define your eyes and make them pop. It can be used to create a dramatic look, or it can be used to create a subtle look. Eyeliner can also be used as part of the cat eye look.

If you're just starting out with makeup, it's best to start with pencil eyeliners because they're easier to work with than liquid ones. They come in different colors and textures, soft or hard; matte or shimmery and they glide on smoothly without smudging all over your face like some liquid liners tend to do!


Eyeshadow is the most expensive makeup product, but it's also the most important one. Eyeshadow can be used to create a whole look or just accentuate certain features. It's like your canvas when creating an artwork without it, you don't have anything to work with!

In addition to being able to use eyeshadow on your eyes and face (the latter being more common), there are some really good reasons why someone would want to use it as lip color as well: It lasts longer than lipstick; helps prevent dryness because of how moisturizing it is; and adds depth and dimension if applied correctly.


Mascara, Brow Pencil, And Lash Primer All Together

Mascara is the most important part of your makeup routine. It makes your lashes look thicker and longer, which is why it should be the first thing you apply to your eyes when doing your makeup. The right mascara can make all the difference in how well a person's face looks overall and we're not just talking about people who have been blessed with naturally long lashes!

If you want to create an illusion of thicker eyelashes without using false ones then use an eyelash curler before applying mascara or curl them after applying it so they hold their shape better throughout the day (and night). The key here is patience: don't rush through this step because doing so could cause damage if done incorrectly!


This Is The Order I Would Go From Least Expensive To Most Expensive

I know it's tempting to buy everything at once, but if you're just starting out, start with the least expensive products and work your way up. Makeup is an investment so buy what you need to complete your look and then add more products as needed!


I hope this list helps you find the perfect makeup products for your skin and budget. I know how hard it can be to navigate all of the different brands out there, so if you have any questions please leave them in the comments below!
