Makeup can sound intimidating with the numerous techniques and products available in the market. However, we promise you it’s not.

Whether you’re still a beginner when it comes to makeup or trying to sharpen your basic skills, you’ve landed on the right page.

Today we're going to teach you how to put on makeup in the simplest way possible, using minimal products. Keep on reading!

First and foremost, we have the base, meaning your skin. Your entire makeup look depends on your base. Good skincare is the foundation for excellent makeup.

Start by using a mild cleanser to wash your face. Then apply a little moisturizer thereafter. Next, always use SPF after your moisturizer. Use a face spray to offer an additional layer of moisture just before application. Your skin is now cleansed, hydrated, and prepared for makeup application.


It's ideal to carry a variety of foundation tones because your complexion will fluctuate with the seasons. But you don't have to spend a fortune on each shade; you may combine a few shades to get the ideal fit.

If you prefer something a little more lightweight, I recommend a BB cream, CC cream, and even a tinted moisturizer.

Tip: If you only own foundations, try mixing them with your favorite moisturizer to turn it into a tinted moisturizer!


Blemishes or dark circles beneath the eyes? Don't worry; a high-coverage cream concealer is able to deliver buildable coverage that seems very natural — without leaving a cakey appearance.

You can skip this step if you don’t have dark circles or blemishes


Your brows are one of the most noticeable features of your face. We weren't all born with perfectly formed brows, but that doesn't mean they can't be achieved. Using a brow pencil of your choosing, shape the brows and fill in any sparse areas. After that, tint your brows and use brow powder to fill in any gaps that remain. Use an eyebrow mascara to keep your brows in place once you've finished shaping them.


Neutral eyeshadow palettes

Always prime your lids before applying eyeshadow to keep them in place all day and prevent creasing. In order to get started with your makeup collection, all you really need is one nice eyeshadow palette that has a wide variety of neutral shades.

Beginners should avoid fake lashes and instead focus on an all-star mascara and liner combination.

A traditional blush, bronzer, and highlighter will give your complexion a healthy radiance and color. Get a blush, highlighter, and bronzer trio if you want to streamline your routine because it includes everything you need in one portable compact.

Lips are the best part if you ask me! You can go with a bold red lip or tone it down with a peachy nude shade. Top it off with a gloss and rock your juicy new lips!

If you’re not a lipstick person, you can also use a tinted lip balm for a slight pop of color.

Tip: Use a lip liner for precision and the lipstick to last longer.


A bunch of make up brushes

You'll need the right tools to apply your makeup properly. For seamlessly blending foundation, blush, and concealer, a beauty sponge is ideal. If you can, get an excellent set of high-quality brushes.

Pointed Q-tips are an excellent item to have in your toolbox for correcting errors or doing precision work. (if you’ve attempted to do a winged liner, you know exactly what I mean)

Makeup removers

Speaking of mistakes, it's usually a good idea to carry some sort of makeup remover just in case (paired with those pointed Q-tips to completely erase any makeup mishap). Furthermore, a mild makeup remover that will remove all traces of makeup is something you'll need at the end of the day.

Tip: DON’T go to sleep with makeup on! Always remove your makeup before bed to let your skin breathe.

Last, but not least, we recommend including these necessities in your cosmetic bag for quick getting-ready and hassle-free touch-ups whether you like to wear natural makeup every day or want to go all out for an event. Consider these beauty products to be the complete, everyday makeup checklist. Now, you too can rock an everyday makeup routine.

We hope this helped!
