A Guide To Buying the Best Makeup Products

When you step out to buy makeup, what do you look at? The glossy covers or the brands? How many times do you read the product description to know if the product will suit you or not? 

Good makeup adds to your confidence. We all have our days when we feel exhausted, but lip shades and blushes can make all the difference in how you look and feel. No matter your reason behind buying makeup, it is crucial to ensure that you have the right products to complete your look. But it can be overwhelming to choose the right products if you are a beginner in your makeup journey. This guide will highlight the products that you must own and why.

Lip Shades

A good lip shade is essential for any makeup look. Whether you are going for a natural or glam look, there is a lip colour out there for you. The key to finding the perfect shade is to experiment with different colours and textures until you find one that complements your skin tone and personality.

Opt for shades close to your lip colour for a natural look. For example, if you have light skin, choose nude or pink shades, and if you have dark lips, choose burgundy or mauve colours. If you want to add a pop of colour to your look, go for brighter shades like reds and oranges.

Try to find lip colours that complement your skin tone, and go with brighter or bolder shades for a glam look. Prefer fuchsia or deep reds if you have a light skin tone and mauve purples if you have a dark complexion. You can even experiment with different finishes to glam up different looks. 

Matte lipsticks give a more modern and edgy look, while glossy lipsticks create a classic and chic vibe. With these lip shades, you can slay any look you want. 

Eye Liner

Eyeliners can help define your eyes and enhance its natural beauty. There are so many different eyeliners in the market which can make the choice confusing. Go with liquid gel eyeliner for sharp strokes and a glossy look. In comparison, a pencil liner is best suited for a smudgy and smokey look. It's also equally important to choose the eyeliner shape according to your eyes. Here are a few tips based on your eye shape:

  • Almond eyes- cat-eye and winged eyeliner look the best.
  • Round Eyes- focus on the outer area of the eye to highlight the shape 
  • Monolid Eyes-The thicker the liner, the better it will look.
  • Downturned Eyes- Adding a tilted flick at the end to make them look lifted.

You can use a lash curler with a volumising mascara to give more definition to your lashes.  


A good primer is a makeup essential. It helps to create a smooth base for your foundation, and it also makes your makeup last longer. When choosing a primer, you should consider your skin type and the finish you want. 

If your skin is oily, look for an oil-free primer to keep shine at bay all day long. A matte formula can also help if your face tends to get oily and shiny throughout the day. For normal to dry skin, look for a primer with hydrating ingredients. 

Some primers don't have any colour, making them perfect for all. There are many different primers in the market, so you can find one that's perfect for your skin type.


The importance of a good foundation cannot be overlooked. A good foundation will help cover up blemishes and give your face a natural look. But it is crucial to find the right colour for your skin tone. For this, some people use a colour matching technique:

  1. Go to a store and ask the salesperson to apply different shades of sample foundation on your jawline vertically. You can pick the best one based on how it looks against your skin tone.
  2. Wear a foundation that matches your skin tone.
  3. Buy a liquid foundation if you have dry skin and powder one in case of oily skin.

Foundation should be used after a moisturizer and before any other makeup. It can be applied with fingers, a brush, or a sponge. For the best coverage and blended look, use a sponge. 


A good blush can give you the rosy look you desire. It can brighten up your face and add a youthful charm. Many different blushes are available, so it is essential to find the right one for your skin tone. 

Cream blush is best for dry skin, while powder can be used on all skin types. Apply the product with a circular motion to your cheeks and blend it outwards using your fingers or a brush. 


A good natural makeup product is a dream. It can make you feel more confident and beautiful. There are many different makeup products available for lip shades, eyeliner, foundation, etc., so it is vital to find the ones that work best for you.
