If you’ve just started venturing into the world of makeup, it’s normal to feel overwhelmed by the abundance of products in the makeup aisle.

Want to know more? We’ve rounded up some of the best makeup essentials for your makeup bag, newbie. You’re welcome!

  • Primer
  • Foundation
  • Concealer

1. Moisturizer
Ladies, we can’t stress the importance of moisturizing your face enough before you go in with any kind of makeup. It is the perfect base for your makeup. Not only does it hydrate your skin, but it also protects its moisture barrier. You shouldn’t skip moisturizing even if you have oily skin because it helps regulate oil production. Find a product that works for your skin type and use it religiously after cleansing and toning your face. It is even better if you find one with SPF as it protects your skin from sun damage and hyperpigmentation. Remember – a clean canvas is key for flawless makeup application.

It’s a good idea to use a moisturizer that’s lightweight and gets quickly absorbed into your skin. We highly recommend the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream. This one’s a cult favorite, and once you apply it, your foundation and concealer will blend into your skin like a dream. It also works well with all skin types.

2. Primer
If you want your makeup to stay put through the day, a primer works like magic. It not only creates a smooth and flawless base but also makes foundation application a whole lot easier.

So, if you’re dealing with concerns like large pores or redness, your primer will take care of it all, giving you velvety soft skin and minimizing the appearance of pores. If you have never tried it, it’s about time you do because it makes a world of difference to how your makeup looks by the end of the day.

One of the best primers to start with is the POREfessional Face Primer from Benefit Cosmetics. It is a silky, lightweight, and oil-free formula that mattifies shine and instantly minimizes the appearance of fine lines and large pores. It also contains vitamin E, which is known to protect your skin from free radicals. You can also use this to spot-conceal by applying it over blemishes and blending it out.
