Here is the list of some makeup essentials that you must buy:-
Let us admit that there are so many makeups and beauty products we’re told that we absolutely need! Yet half the time they’re totally unnecessary. But face primer is not an unnecessary product! Who doesn’t want their makeup to stay put throughout the day? If you also want your makeup to look good even at the end of the day, add primer to your essentials. Trust me, primer works like magic! Primer creates a smooth and flawless canvas for a whole lot easier foundation application.
You might be thinking applying a face primer is just another unnecessary step in your makeup routine but I personally believe it as a vital step in my makeup routine. Regardless of what your skin type is, there is a primer for you, whether you’re looking for a formula to control oil or acne, moisturize, smooth out uneven texture, etc. 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 hardest parts of your makeup routine to get right is a foundation. Why? It’s because you need to check everything before buying one foundation. Whether it will match your skin undertone or not? Will it be appropriate for your skin type? Does it give the coverage you want? Everything!
If you are new in wearing foundation, please check the foundation on your face or jawline before buying to make sure it matches your skin tone perfectly. This is one of the must-buy makeup essentials that you must buy. Or maybe a more simple way is to head to a good makeup store and let the makeup experts find your perfect foundation shade. You don’t need to apply a lot of foundation. So remember always that less is more in case of foundation. Applying lots of foundation will ruin your whole look. But if you feel that there is a need to apply a little more than do it but don’t overdo it.

Mascara has to be one of my favorite products of all time! One coat of mascara can make you look more awake and refreshed. Just mascara is enough to put your whole look together and give that fresh-faced look. The type of mascara depends on the type of eye look you are going for. Mascara not only just comes in black color rather it also has a different color range. You can go crazy with your eye look with various colors of mascaras.
Maybelline New York Volum Express Hyper Curl mascara is my absolute favorite and that too in my budget. It is waterproof and the first choice of many buyers.
Who doesn’t love pink rosy cheeks? Blush indeed is the real game-changer of your whole look. It just makes you look more put together. A simple healthy wash of color on your face gives you a more awake and fresh look.
While picking up blush, remember to choose the shade that will look more natural on you. Always apply your blush on your cheeks and high points of your face as it will emphasize more on your cheekbones.
For a beginner, I will suggest you start with powdered blushes like Nykaa Get Cheeky! Blush Duo.
