The Ultimate Beginner Makeup Starter Kit

The Ultimate Beginner Makeup Starter Kit:

We don’t all start out with copious amounts of makeup products. Building a collection takes years and not to mention, thousands of dollars. We all start out at the bottom and work our way to a large stash in later years.

Makeup newbies, don’t be confused by the thousands of products on the cosmetic shelves. From eyelash curlers to makeup brushes, there are so many makeup tools on the market that it can be frustrating when trying to figure out exactly what you need in your makeup bag. If you’re ready to step your game up but don’t want to waste money on unnecessary items, I’ve got your back.

I have made a list for both budget-friendly pocketbooks as well as splurge-worthy purchases. These easy-to-use products will step your game up to a whole new level and are loved by many pro makeup artists. Without further ado, let’s jump in.

Moisturizer and Primer

Great makeup application begins with a great skincare routine. I know, I have beaten this to death but I would not continue saying this if it wasn’t proven true. Prep your skin with a tandem slathering of moisturizer and primer. The duo will ensure a flawless base that keeps makeup in place all day.

Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer $63, ELF Hydrating Face Primer $6

Concealer and Foundation

With a plethora of concealers and foundations on the market today, beginners can eliminate the guessing game by choosing my favourite products. Your makeup will not look cakey and the formulations work fantastically with one another.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer $10, Maybelline Dream Cushion Foundation $17

Makeup Starter Kit4

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation $50, Tarte Shape Tape Concealer $35

Eyebrow Products

Eyebrows are one of the most important features of your face so when it comes to brow products I am extremely picky. Stay away from waxy-textured brow products and opt for a natural brow enhancer.

NYX Professional Micro Brow Pencil $12.49, Benefit Cosmetics Precisely My Brow Pencil $32

Eyeliner and Mascara

Things can go soooo wrong with the incorrect formulation of mascara and eyeliner. Smudging, raccoon eyes are often times, not the look we are going for, correct? There’s really no need to fiddle around with applying false lashes when using these duos.

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner $25, Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real Mascara $32


Lipstick is an area when you will need a variety of shades. I would suggest going with at least a red and a nude shade. They are the must-have shades for your makeup kit. No kit is complete without go-to lip colours.

In order to put apply your makeup properly, you’ll need to use the right tools. Some of the products out there are just awful for makeup application. These tools are tried and tested and work phenomenally for beginners as well as advanced beauty gurus.

Q-Tips and Makeup Wipes

Even pros make mistakes—and dabbing a Q-tip into lotion is their secret for instantly erasing errors. For those nights when you’re too lazy to wash your face, makeup wipes will be your best friend.
