1) Powder:

Powder products are perfect for beginners. They are recommended for oily skin. Another benefit of using powder products is that you can build the coverage according to your comfort.

If you can invest on one, you definitely will not regret it. Everybody loves it and so will you! The Beauty Blender is especially useful for blending products with creamy texture. It helps to build coverage easily and gives an even finish. There are many dupes available in the market but try getting the original because it is going to be one of your best make-up investments.

8) Makeup Setting Spray:

After you are done with all the color play, it is time to use some makeup setting spray to finish off your entire look. However this step is optional.
