Sure, some of us have been obsessed with makeup since we were kids trying smearing on Mom’s red lipstick. And while we’d like to think that everyone is as enthralled by beauty as we are, that’s not exactly the case. So, for those of you makeup newbies who are looking to give the life of blush and eye shadow a chance, we’ve gathered up some basic essentials you need to start your own stash.
First and foremost, read this guide to help you determine where blush should be applied based on your face shape. Once you’ve solved that mystery, grab the Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Cheek Flush; the unique applicator allows for easy, natural and mess-free blushin’, even when you’re on the go!
We know it looks like a torture device. But, you can do this! Curling your lashes will INSTANTLY make your eyes look bigger, brighter and more awake, even if you haven’t worked yourself up to trying mascara just yet. If you need some help figuring out this lash curling concoction, pick up your Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler and check out this tutorial.
You may not know it, but brows are seriously a BIG deal. And keeping them in tiptop shape is easier than you may think. If you’re just looking to keep them in place and give them a little extra oomph, try the Urban Decay Brow Tamer, a flexible-hold brow gel that grooms, sets and defines your arches for a more polished and put-together look.
The world of eye shadow can be a complex place, even for a seasoned pro. But, the L’Oréal Paris Studio Secrets Professional The One Sweep is a game changer. It comes with a unique applicator that suits the natural shape of the eye and applies the shadow across your lids with ONE swipe. If only life were this easy!
