9 Makeup Products Every Makeup Newbie Needs

When it comes to makeup, I do know what works for me and my face, I know what makeup I like, and the type I will always stay away from, but it took me a little while to get here. I have older sisters, but they never really wore makeup growing up, so I never really had anyone to learn from. So, it took me quite a long time to learn how to put on makeup and buy the right products for me. So if you’re trying to get more into makeup: I 100 percent feel your pain and frustration, and I want to help.

If you don’t really know much about makeup, walking into a store like Ulta or Sephora can be the most anxiety-inducing experience of your life. What do all of the brushes do? What’s the difference between liquid eyeliner and pencil eyeliner? WTF is concealer? These were all thoughts I totally had as a teen, so I don’t blame you if you feel this way. If you don’t, then you’re already doing better that I was at 16. When I first started buying makeup, I would buy literally hundreds of dollars worth of eyeshadow. I never wore eyeshadow. Like, ever. I just thought it was the trendy thing to do, so I bought it.  Big mistake!  But enough about me, let’s get to YOU. Maybe you really want to start building your makeup collection, you just don’t know what you need. I feel that. So, I decided to come up with some basic beauty essentials that every girl should own if she wants to expand her makeup collection. Check them out, then let me know if they worked for you!
