So you want to wear makeup but you have NO CLUE where to start. Trust me, I hear this all of the time. I know getting started with makeup can be a bit overwhelming and if you're not careful, it can be quite expensive. I created this post to help you build your Beginner's Makeup Kit while maintaining a $50 budget. Impressive huh? Trust me, we can do this with the help of BH Cosmetics. Y'all ready? I do all of the work for you, all you have to do is CLICK! Follow these simple steps and you won't have to worry about wasting money on makeup you don't use! Let's Get Started!
Y'all know I always tell you that your brows frame your face. So let's start here. By filling in your brows first (not mandatory, just a suggestion) as a beginner, it's easier to see the direction your makeup is going. In order to frame your brows, you'll need a good brow pencil. I suggest THIS ONE and guess what? It's only $5.50. I love this one because it even has a spoolie on the end for you to brush and groom your brows! It's a TWO -N- ONE! Depending on your complexion and your desired brow, Ebony and Brunette are great choices for darker shades of brows. For a lighter shade, try Medium.
Now this can be 1st or it can be last, again, this is all about personal preference when it comes to applying makeup. However, let's go ahead and add a little foundation to the face. I love a good liquid foundation, especially for my beginners. It's not a heavy and/or cakey feel, yet it looks amazing on the skin. My suggestion for a foundation is THIS ONE. This foundation got me through for so long! It's only $4.00 and it's really a great foundation.
What good is great makeup if you don't have the proper tools to apply it with? No worries, I got you covered. Having a nice set of brushes alone will take your makeup from DRAB to FAB in no time! This 14 Piece brush set is PERFECT for any look that you want to create. And at only $16.00 this is a HUGE steal! Check it out HERE . I also suggest a Beauty Blending Sponge to help blend in and evenly distribute your foundation. You're in luck......its only $4.00.
Now this part is fun to me! This is where your personality and personal preference can come out. You decide which eyeshadow palette is right for you. Would you prefer more vibrant colors or neutrals? Again it is up to you. In order to remain in our $50 budget, choose a palette that is under $9. Check out the Eyeshadow Palettes HERE . My suggestion is THIS ONE because it is an eyeshadow and blush palette all in one.
Now its time to pucker up to these amazing $5 Long wearing Lipsticks. I wear one of these lipsticks almost everyday. That's how much I love them. They go on creamy and dry matte, and lock into place. Yes trust me, you will love these lipsticks.
These next two items are optional for your personal makeup kit, depending on your needs. Those items are Concealer and Bronzer. I'm petty, I would definitely choose Bronzer over Concealer, because i love a good GLOW. However, if you do have blemishes or areas that you wish to cover, concealer would definitely be an option for you.
Concealer: These concealer sticks are awesome for on-the-go and quick touch ups to your skin. With pricing as low as $3 we are able to purchase 2 of these and still remain under our $50 budget!
Bronzer: If you're like me and chose the bronzer. This particular Bronzer palette is awesome. These can be applied wet or dry and can be used as a highlighter, eyeshadow or just a wash of color for the face and cheeks. CHECK OUT THIS ONE. The best part is, it's only $6.50 which places us right below our $50 budget!
So BOOM! There you have it! An amazing Makeup kit for you which will offer so much versatility in your looks. This kit is great for everyday makeup for work, or that perfect GLAM for going out.
