10 Makeup Products for Beginners

Top Makeup Favorites That Are Perfect and Essential for Anyone New to the World of Makeup


These products are by far my top favorites that I believe are perfect for anyone wanting to try out makeup but don't know where to start. They are all very affordable and will have anyone looking flawless without putting a dent in their wallets. 

1. Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Primer

The first product is of course, primer. Primer is important for any makeup look because it is a base that allows your face makeup to be applied more smoothly and last ten times longer! Maybelline's Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Primer leaves the skin feeling smooth and hydrated. It does an amazing job at hiding pores and works fairly well with any type of foundation. 

2. L'Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation

Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation Makeup - L'Oréal Paris
Discover L'Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation Makeup, a liquid foundation with a matte finish that hides imperfections for a smooth, clear complexion.

This foundation is great for beginners and pretty much for anyone in the makeup world. It has a medium coverage, but can be build up for a more full coverage look without it looking "cakey" on the skin. I recommend this foundation for people with oily skin because it stays matte for a very long time. The L'Oréal Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation is one I recommend for people with dryer skin because it makes the skin look radiant and natural. 

3. Maybelline Fit Me Concealer

The Maybelline Fit Me Concealer is perfect for covering those dark under eyes from binge-watching shows at two in the morning. It covers blemishes and blends easily with a brush, sponge, or finger. It brightens up the skin, making it look alive and healthy. 

4. Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder

Having a good powder is key in ensuring your concealer and foundation do not budge throughout your day/night. This powder is slightly matte, but not too much for the people still wanting a subtle glow. It sets foundation and concealer beautifully and does not cling to dry patches on the skin. 

5. Physicians Formula Murumuru Butter Bronzer

This is the bronzer everyone needs in their life. While slightly pricier than the previous products, it is definitely worth it. The formula in this bronzer is smooth and it smells like coconuts. It is easy to build up for a more contoured look and blends well for a more natural look. It has a subtle sheen that gives the skin a slight glow without being too overwhelming. 

6. Milani Rose Powder Blush

These blushes have amazing pigmentation that last a long time. The shades are matte and go well with any makeup look. They work well with any skin type and don't move at all when on the face. A definite bonus is the packaging. The rose shape on the blushes is just stunning. 

7. Wet 'n' Wild MegaGlo Highlighting Powder

This highlight looks so natural and illuminates the skin without having just a splotch of glitter your face. There are a couple of shades to choose from to accommodate many. The texture is smooth and is easy to apply with a brush or just a finger. It is highly buildable and easy to manage. 

8. L'Oréal Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara

Miss Manga ™ Mascara - Mascara By L'Oreal Paris
Oversized Volume. 360° Flexor Brush. Wide-eyed Manga Look.

Mascara can add so much to a makeup look and this one in particular is perfect for beginners. The wand in this mascara is flexible and bendable, making it easy to coat all the lashes evenly. The texture is smooth and it does an awesome job at lengthening. 

9. e.l.f. Instant Lift Brow Pencil

Instant Lift Brow Pencil
Try the Instant Lift Brow Pencil to add volume and definition to your brows. Perfect for touchups and flyaways. Shop e.l.f. Cosmetics today.

This affordable brow product is great for anyone wanting to enhance their eyebrows while still looking natural. It's very easy and quick to use which cuts off time when getting ready. It has a great amount of product inside and the spoolie brush is really nice quality. 

10. Maybelline Color Sensational Lipsticks

Lastly, onto our last product. These lipsticks are absolutely stunning. They are creamy and glide on smoothly. They last a long time on the lips and are very pigmented. Whether you want a neutral, vibrant, or vampy shade, they got you covered. 

With many makeup companies launching products constantly, it's a little confusing not knowing where to begin. All of these products are great starters for anyone wanting to dive into the crazy world of makeup. It's important to remember that everyone's skin is different, and that you have to accommodate to what your skin likes best. Love you all, stay beautiful! xoxo
