makeup staples for beginners

If you are a newbie to the world of makeup, it is normal to feel confused about which makeup product you should invest in. Many women think that it needs a lot of products to look flawless, and it takes an age to apply them on their face. Well, that is not true. You need some basic products and a little bit of time to take a step into the world of perfection that will enhance your naturally beautiful face. 

A wide range of cosmetics is available both online and at stores near you. You can start your makeup journey by purchasing them from some of the best makeup brands in India. You do not need the bulk of products in the beginning. Some of the basics that every beginner should have in her makeup bag are provided below.

Face Moisturizer 

Moisturizer is the base of makeup. You should never skip moisturizing your face before makeup. It not only keeps your skin hydrated but also maintains the moisture balance. Find a moisturizer that goes well with your skin type and use it after cleansing and toning your face. Moisturizing you face makes your skin smooth and is the key to flawless makeup application. It is suggested to buy a moisturizer that is lightweight and quickly absorbs in your skin. 

Face Primer

There are many makeup products that are unnecessary, but primer is definitely not one of those products. If you want your makeup to stay well throughout the day, then using a primer before the application of foundation is necessary. Primer works like magic on your skin, minimizing the appearance of pores on your face. It gives your skin a smooth touch and also makes the application of foundation a whole lot easier.


Foundation is the key to get a flawless skin. If you are new to applying cosmetics, then choosing the right foundation might be a little confusing for you. Always opt for a foundation that matches your skin tone, provides you with amazing coverage and is suitable for your skin type. Applying foundation evens out skin tone and gives your skin a perfect radiance. Apply a little amount of foundation to get a natural look. You can apply more if you need more coverage. 


No makeup list is complete without mascara. Applying a coat of mascara make you look wide open and more confident without using any other eye makeup products. Mascaras come in different formulas, such as lengthening, volumizing, curling, etc. Go for the type of mascara according to the look you want to achieve. You can check out a wide collection of mascaras available.

Lip Product

Lip products are another significant essentials on the list of makeup products. Choose your favourite shade of lipstick or lipgloss that you can wear all day. Go for nude or light shades so that you can get a natural look. You may also opt for tinted lip balms as they have a hint of colour that will add an extra touch of radiance on your face.

All these makeup staples need minutes to apply, and these are the products that you actually need to have as a beginner.  Moreover, you can add more products to your list when you become used to with the basic ones.
