Five Budget-Friendly Makeup Essentials For Beginners

The makeup world is truly fascinating! There are so many products on the market, that even a hard-boiled professional can be overwhelmed with the amount of products available for makeup experiments. If you're just starting your makeup journey, then you'll find this compilation very useful. Here are our top five budget-friendly, essential makeup products for every makeup beginner.

IT Cosmetics

Face makeup or foundation is an ideal product to cover up blemishes and even the skin tone but it demands thoroughly blending the product and perfect shade matching. Unlike foundation, this lightweight CC+ cream by It Cosmetics can be easily blended with your fingertips and its formula includes SPF 50+, so the harmful UV rays won't affect your gentle facial skin. Available in 12 different shades and two sizes: full and mini.


IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream for $15. Available in 12 shades.


Regular setting powder with pigment also needs to match your skin tone perfectly, while translucent powder is transparent, though it is universal and matches every skin tone! Translucent finishing powder by Stellar will set your makeup base and provide a natural-looking, matte, yet radiant finish to your skin. Finely-milled formula feels featherweight and doesn't clog pores. 


Stellar Cosmic Face Haze Finishing Powder Mini for $15. 


Long-lasting nude lipstick with sophisticated matte finish and subtle shade, that closely matches the natural shade of your lips is a must-have product for every makeup beginner and makeup professional. Try out the Color Lip Last Lipstick by Sephora, it is available in 17 different shades and lasts up to 10 hours on the lips.

Kat Von D

Eyebrows play an important role in the makeup game. Beautifully shaped and correctly filled brows can drastically change your overall makeup look. Eyebrow pencils and pomades aren't beginner friendly because they demand precision and practice, while brow powders are beginner-friendly. The Brow Struck Dimension Powder by Kat Von D is easy to use, long-wear eyebrow powder that will emphasize the shape of your eyebrows. 


KVD Brow Struck Dimension Powder for $10.50 (reg. price: $21) Available in 8 shades.

MILK Makeup

The easiest way to make your eyes pop is to apply a generous coat of curling mascara. Milk Makeup has an intense-black mascara with special thickening fibers and cannabis seed oil that takes care of your lashes. This mascara gives your lashes incredible 3-dimensional volume and guarantees smudge-free wear.


Milk Makeup KUSH Waterproof Mascara for $24.
