Makeup Must-Haves For Beginners

Assembling a good makeup kit is sure fun, but if you have just started dipping your new brushes into the vast pool of colours, it can be a bit overwhelming. Also, with a plethora of products to choose from, it can get confusing to figure out what works the best for you as a beginner.

But fret not, if you’re just starting and seeking guidance as to how to curate the perfect makeup vanity appropriate for beginners, we’ve put together a list of all makeup must-haves you need in your cosmetic bag!

1. Xpress Glow Daily Beauty 10-in-1 Cream SPF 25

As a beginner, you would not want to paint your face with heavy foundations and concealers, so we’ve jotted down the perfect alternative for your base makeup. The Lotus Xpress Glow Daily Beauty 10-in-1 Cream is a tinted CC cream that imparts your skin with sheer radiance and comes with the benefits of skincare, makeup & SPF, all in one. 

This one is a must-have for anyone new to the world of makeup as it delivers dual benefits- illuminates the skin with light to medium coverage, and the SPF 25 keeps the skin protected throughout the day. So don’t think twice before investing your bucks in this one!


2. Ecostay Ideal Finish Pressed Powder

Even as a beginner, your base makeup needs to be set with a compact powder that melts seamlessly onto your skin and doesn’t leave any patches. The Ecostay Ideal Finish Pressed powder is ideal for someone who wants the base to last longer & does not move around the skin. 

The smooth & lightweight texture absorbs the excess oil & keeps the skin matte & fresh looking throughout the day. Trust us, and you can never go wrong with this one staple compact powder in your bag!


3. Color Kick Black Eyeliner

Eyeliner is an essential part of all your makeup looks. No matter if you’ve just started or you’re already a pro, you need an eyeliner to create those elaborate cat-eyes or just a natural look that involves a wee bit of the product! 

The ColorKick Insta Shine Liquid Eyeliner comes in a smudge-proof & water-proof formulation that delivers intense black payoff. It is an ideal choice for anyone new to makeup as it is easy to apply, dries off within seconds and provides a bold black glossy finish to the eyes.


4. Color Kick Kajal

A kajal is the quickest and simplest way for beginners to add drama and definition to their eyes to make them look bigger. Kajals accentuate your water line and bring out your eye colour, making them pop.

The Color Kick Kajal is a super-budget friendly option for all beginners out there as it has the most convenient formulation to begin working with & glides onto the eyes without any hassle, giving it a bold & defined look.


 5. Colorkick Exfoliating & Hydrating Lip Sugar SPF 20

Dry and chapped lips? No one wants that! Lips tend to get dry & flaky, especially during winters; therefore, it is essential to keep them nourished through all seasons. To serve this purpose, a makeup beginner should invest in an exfoliating lip product that enhances the colour of the lips & also heal it. 

The Colorkick Exfoliating & Hydrating Lip Sugar SPF 20 is our recommendation for your dry lips need. It is a tinted lip gloss with the healing properties of a lip balm and improves lip texture on regular usage. It is pretty convenient to use & can be carried along everywhere! 


6. Ecostay Butter Matte Lipstick in shades: Mystic Wine & Ravishing Rose

A good lipstick can be a game-changer when it comes to creating any sort of makeup look. It brightens up the face and prevents it from looking washed out. 

When it comes to lip colours, the choices are endless, and if you’re new to choosing shades, we suggest starting with bright colours that can enhance your makeup look altogether. For example, the Ecostay Butter Matte lip colour in the shade Ravishing Rose & Ecostay Butter Matte lip colour in the shade Mystique Wine are vibrant shades of pink that are highly pigmented, deliver a gorgeous buttery finish & keep your lips hydrated throughout the day.


To all makeup lovers, makeup is meant to enhance your natural beauty & not cover it up completely. These are all the essentials you need in your cosmetic bag to experiment with different looks, keeping it natural yet glamourous!
