If you don't have any major pigmentation or acne marks on your skin then it's best to work with BB and CC creams. They offer light coverage, which especially works well for beginners as you might not have much knowledge about creating a flawless base or colour correction.
Let us tell you that BB creams offer a lighter coverage as compared to CC creams. Both of them are light on the skin and more like a tinted moisturiser so very easy to blend. A quick tip to use these creams is that always ensure you are blending equally. You can use your fingers. Don't forget to apply on your neck.
Compact Powder/Loose Powder
After applying your base, it is important to set your makeup with a loose powder or compact powder. This prevents your base from moving and also prevents oil production around the nose or forehead. Brushing some powder on your face helps you mattify your face and even the skin tone.
Are you a kohl fan? Or love applying an eyeliner? Depending on your choice, you can pick between the two. If you think kohl is your safest bet then go for it. You can create numerous looks using that one kajal pencil. On the other hand, a lot of you may feel that eyeliner is a bit tricky to apply. However, there are a lot of brands that now offer pen liners that are easier to apply.
This is a must-have! To define your eyes, you need a good mascara. Curling your eyelashes can instantly lift your look. This can be worn alone on days you just want your eyes to do the talking or with a full makeup face.
Your eyebrows frame your face. It is essential to fill in your eyebrows to have that neat look. You can use a brow pencil or gel to fill in any gaps in your eyebrows. Make sure you don't overdo it.
