At times choosing beauty and makeup products can be overwhelming, but do we actually need all those products on the market? Luckily, the answer is no! Today I'm going to share with you a few basic beauty must-haves every girl can use in her beauty routine without spending all her budget on unnecessary products. Who needs to pay for an expensive face mask, when an at home avocado mask is just as good?
Every skin care routine starts with cleanser. Finding a skin cleanser that fits your skin type can be difficult, but once you find what you need you will fall in love with your skin once again. Make sure your cleanser doesn't irritate or dry out your skin and your skin feels comfortable after the procedure. You may want to pair the cleanser with a soft, but good working sponge or washing brush.
Skin Moisturizer or Vitamin Serum
Believe me, if you have one of these two products your skin is ready to face it all. You are going to need just a small amount of a lightweight skin moisturizer to hydrate your skin and bring it back to life. An oil based vitamin serum is good for those who have a dry and mature skin type, plus, you can use it instead of a primer. There is no need in buying an expensive or brand name product, just find a product that works the best for your skin.
Pure Natural Oil
Once again, it is not important what oil you are going to choose, how much you will pay or what brand you are going to use. Usually people like to use coconut oil for beauty purposes, but apricot, rose or even olive oils are just as good. I even use my kitchen soybean oils at times! You can mix it with your makeup products or apply it as moisturizer, works all the time for me.
Black Eye Kohl
You can't imagine how many gorgeous makeup looks you can create with just one black eye kohl! Cat eyeliner, black classic smoky eyes, smoked eyeliner, fill in your eyebrows and even apply it on your lips. The options are endless and the product is one. Give preference to a hard, regular eye kohl over soft and waterproof.
Translucent skin powders are so universal and I don't even think I need to explain why. You can use this powder to set your foundation, touch up the skin throughout the day or even blend the makeup if it turned out to be harsh. Some girls can even use it instead of a dry shampoo, it works good if you are blond, hehe!
Matte Eyeshadow Palette
A simple matte eyeshadow palette, including only three basic colors: black, white and brown, can almost cope with any makeup task. Everyday eye makeup, night out dramatic look? Easily! You already have a dark color for blending and setting, brown transitioning color and highlighter.
