Hmm for me I googled loads of tutorials for basic makeup when I first started. Youtube has lots too haha. XD

I'm definitely not a pro with makeup...but I guess it kinda depends on your skin type etc. Like for me, I have pimples etc...so I tend to use concealer alot ^^"

Hope it helps >w<

There are a lot of basics lol. The basic differs depending on what your skin needs too :)

 

Basic skincare needs: a good facial wash, toner, moisturiser, AND makeup remover

 

Basic cosmetics:

Face

- Concealer (I prefer cream cause I find the staying power on my skin better than liquid)

- Foundation (studio makeup, I generally apply both liquid and powder. However if your skin's lovely and flawless, just opt for BB powder)

- Loose powder (optional. This is to 'set' your liquid foundation nicely)

- BB/CC Cream (optional. Use this instead of Foundation if you want)

 

Eyes

- Eyebrow pencil, brush (to shape your eyebrows nicely. Please shape them beforehand to avoid getting 'bush-brows'!)

- Eyeliner (pencil, gel, liquid. Pencil for beginners, liquid requires practice. Gel is intermediate between the two)

- Eyeshadow (I suggest practising with neutral shades like browns and oranges first. Once you're comfortable with blending the colors together, move on to other colors to experiment too ^^ )

- Mascara

 

Cheeks & Lips

- Blush (optional. But it helps to give your face a radiant look)

- Lipstick/gloss (choose pale or nude colors if your eyeshadow/liner is heavy and dark)

 

Hope this helps a bit! :)

It....is difficult to say. I don't USUALLY recommend unbranded products not because I am a brand-snob, but because reputable brands assure you of their quality. I learned this the hard way when I had used several questionable 'brands' and had ended up with really bad rashes and acne problems.

 

For beginners, try looking at the cosmetic range from Silky Girl, Elianto, Garnier (BB Cream), and Maybelline. Price is on an average and the coverage is decent enough :)

 

For misc items like eyelashes and eyelash glue, Daiso's products work fine to me :)

I think shading powder should be bronzer..? :o

Its something like blush but instead, its more like a taupe / brown color used for contouring. 

Some people uses darker liquid foundation to contour / some use powder

 

Here's something I found pretty useful ^^

Yep that's right! A bronzer functions as a shading powder as well :) it's also used to give your skin a more sun-tanned look if needed :)

Use matte (not shiny!) brown eyeshadow a few shades darker/lighter than your skin tone to contour your face :)

yes brown eyeshadow works too, I'll suggest something more towards the beige side to make it look more natural, something more of a taupe color since I personally think it looks more even, though it all depends on your skin tone c:
