With so many beauty bloggers and YouTube gurus showing of their enormous makeup collections, it can be easy to feel like you need a whole room dedicated to lip glosses to look gorgeous. I’m here to tell you.. you don’t. I wanted to start a new video series of basic makeup “wardrobes” for each type of makeup. This is essentially a breakdown of the basics you need in your makeup collection to always look your best. Maybe you’re a young girl just starting out playing with makeup and want to take it to the next level… maybe you’re a recent college grad who wants to look more professional for their first job and new life… or maybe you’ve been using the same makeup for years and need to switch things up… this series is for you!
I’m staring with foundations (and a little about primers) because they are literally the foundation of you makeup. I’m sharing the 3 essential foundations every women should have in her makeup collection… and a few tricks for picking a shade and getting the most out of what you have.
