Makeup for Beginners: Back to Basics – Face Essentials

Face Essentials2

 

Okay so being a beginner in the makeup game can be a pretty hard task to tackle.  What’s a highlight?  Why do I need it?  What does the concealer do?  How is that different from the foundation?  Trust me, we understand that sometimes you just need to go back to basics.  So we did.

Here’s a quick guide below for makeup beginners that can give you a little bit more information as to what’s what for face makeup essentials.  We also added just a couple of affordable choices in the links below but you can definitely try a variety of different products to see which one works best for you.


Cleanser

Clean your face, you want to start with a fresh and clean canvas.  Using the right cleanser will allow you to pamper your skin prior to applying makeup.

Moisturizer

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.  If you have dry skin, it is essential that you moisturize your skin prior to applying your makeup, but oily skin needs to be moisturized as well.  Moisturizers can act as a temporary barrier for the skin and help maintain its natural balance.

Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream

Neutrogena Moisture Oil-Free Facial Moisturizer


Primer

Primer basically allows your foundation to last longer and go on smoother.   The main benefit of a primer is that it seals your pores and creates a smooth base for your foundation.
