Face Primer

Face primers smooth the skin and add some radiance. They also help to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and imperfections. Few recommended primers for a dewy, blurred finish are Urban Decay All Nighter Matte Face Primer or the NYX Professional Makeup High Gloss Primer.


These are applied before foundation to hide dark spots, hyperpigmentation, redness, and dark circles. Palettes are the best options to add in your makeup kit as they provide various shades and hues to correct skin tone, but if you have a specific problem like the dark circles, a solo hued formula can serve the purpose.


It is the must-have beauty product to be in a makeup kit as being the base of all makeup. There are various formulas like sheer liquid, cushion compact, or full-cover formula and you can decide about the right one as per your skin type.


Blushes are one of those desert-island products that can give you either the pop of colors of apple cheeks or the revived 1980s trend of full-on draping. There are plenty of shades of pink, nude, purple, or red available and you can add any pallet to your make up kit that gives you a heartwarming beauty blush.


These illuminating or strobing liquids or powders are dedicated to enhancing the bone structure of your face. They are used on the high points of the face like top of cheekbones, bridge of the nose, and along with brow bones. Add a highlighter by NYX or Maybelline to your kit to glorify your features.
