Make up Basics

Been dabbing and experimenting with make-up recently. These are what I think should be the basics in a make-up kit.

1. Mascara

My mascara is Benefit's They're Real mascara

Find a good reliable, tried and tested mascara. I like this one because it has a really good formula and it's not very difficult to remove (it's not waterproof). You'll never know how much mascara can help into opening up your eyes. Speaking of opening up them peekers...

2. Eyelash curler

This is the E.L.F. eyelash curler.

2. Eye pencils

Mainly, one white, brown (for eyebrows) and black.

E.L.F. Eye widerer in Pearl White

This seriously helps in making my eyes look very awake and bright. I love this! And it's dirt cheap.

Nichido mineral eye pencil in Chestnut

This is my eyebrow pencil. I love this because it's 2 shades lighter than my hair. That's the rule, if you're brunette 2 shades lighter and if you're blond 2 shades darker. Trimmed and groomed eyebrows can make a huge difference! They frame the face and just makes it more symmetric.

Nichido Mineral Kohl Pencil in Onyx

I overuse this pencil! I love it to bits. Very easy to use and remove. 

These are my make-up basics, I think you should spend on the mascara and curler but save on the pencils. There are a lot of awesome cheap eye pencils out there.

I know I did not put any products for the face and lips because I seldom use stuff for that. I don't really like lipsticks because I tend to spread them everywhere on my face and I eat a lot during the day. I have yet to find a good lip stain (which I think would suit me).
