Lipsticks come in a vast selection of colors. If you’ll take a look back at lipstick collections in the past, probably 20 to 30 years ago, most lipsticks only come in either red, pink or orange.

Well, just like picking the right wardrobe, there are also some factors you many want to consider when it comes to choosing the right lipstick shade for you.

Age between 13 to 18 brings a lot of changes in a girl’s life, both physically and emotionally. Leaving those fantasies of childhood behind, a girl in her teen, is more attracted towards the items related to her appearance, be it trendy clothes or radiance-enhancing beauty products. Selection of makeup for beginners is not that easy. Teenage girls have youthful and sensitive skin, so their selection for complete makeup kit must be made with utmost care.
Being a makeup newbie, you lack experience. There are a lot of things that need your attention before buying your ultimate makeup must haves.
For getting the best makeup results, you must have great skin. Great skin comes with moisturizing. Buy some nutritive moisturizer to get a flawless skin.
Primer is optional. It makes it easy to glide on the makeup. A primer also promises the longevity of the makeup. A primer must never be purchased without knowing your skin type. For a dry skin type, opt for hydrating primers, for a skin too oily or the one with large pores, opt for the one with blurring effect.
It’s too early for you to get into the usage of a foundation. As getting the right one (according to your skin tone) can be tricky. Still if you want to use foundation, apply a concealer first (especially if you have dark circles or other blemishes on your skin). It hides a lot on your skin and you don’t have to apply too much of foundation. The other best choice is to simply opt for a BB cream. A slight layer of beauty balm cream is best for hiding the skin imperfections without getting a thick and cakey feel on your skin. Maybelline has a great range of BB creams according to your skin type. Find the best for yours.
We need a face powder to get a long-lasting makeup result. Makeup may vanish or slip due to sweat or oil, that’s why we recommend buying a setting powder, especially for the T area (forehead, nose, chin), that is oilier than other parts. But if you have dry skin, you don’t need one.
Do you like that Greek goddess-like look that a bronzer promises? If yes, buy one to have a sun-kissed glow on your skin. A bronzer too is an optional item. Bronzers with matte finish are the best. The matte finish promises a natural look. Bronzers by NYX with matte finish are some of the best, available in the drugstores.
Your look is incomplete without those final strokes of a blush. Girls with warm skin tones should go with peachy blushes while pinkish blushes are suitable for cool skin tones.
Eyebrow pencil is one of the most significant items of makeup must haves. Well-groomed eyebrows give a defining touch to your overall look. You can’t skip that at all.
Don’t forget to add eye liner pencils in your makeup kit box. Three shades are the must haves; brown for daily use, beige for waterline application (it gives a wider look to your eyes) and black to get a sizzling hot look. Look for the products that are pigmented and glide on seamlessly.
Your eye makeup cannot be completed without application of suitable eye shadows. For the makeup for beginners, we recommend you to buy the eye shadow palette with everyday nudes. Bobbi Brown and Maybelline, both offer some great neutral shaded palettes.
Instead of wearing those fake lashes, apply mascara on your upper and lower lashes to bring out the best look. Buy the one that promises a long lasting staying power. [ Read here: The Pros and Cons of Eyelash Extensions you must be aware of].
You can’t look perfect without drenching your lips in color. Lipsticks and lip glosses both are essential parts of a complete makeup set. Lipsticks come in various finishes i.e. matte, nude and creamy. You are free to pick the ones you like. Easy to glide on, glosses too are popular, particularly among teenage girls.
For the best application of bronzer, blush or eyeshadows, the brushes should be of high quality. Many times, the kits come with low-quality brushes with hard bristles. To face such situation, it’s better to buy some good brushes in different shape and sizes separately.
It is highly recommended to remove the makeup at the end of the day. Don’t forget to add some high-quality makeup remover and makeup removing wipes in your makeup kit.
Conclusion: Getting a complete makeup set is not enough, it is also very important to apply each item in the best possible manner. You are still young and you don’t have to overdo your makeup. We would advise you to use everything in a balanced way otherwise you will end up with an aging look.

Long-haul flights have always been a nightmare for me. No matter how much significant it is, I try my best, not to be airborne. But last year I had to be somewhere and that was not possible without being in an overseas flight. My friend’s remarks were scaring the hell outta me. She ensured me that after being onboard for about 14 hours, I would de-plane in my worst look ever. I couldn’t sleep whole night (literally speaking).
