What to Look for in a Makeup Kit
Makeup kits and gift sets have become very popular. They make excellent gifts and are a great way to get started using a new line of products. They typically contain a range of products, with the exact mix differing from kit to kit. But what are the essentials? Here is our list of must-haves for a makeup kit or gift set:
We have praised the benefits of using a makeup primer before. It truly is the best place to start when you are applying your makeup, as it helps to condition and moisturize your face, as well as to improve your makeup’s ability to adhere to your face. If you want a long-lasting, comfortable wear out of your makeup, primer is a necessary item, and getting one in a makeup kit will ensure that the primer is designed to work with that makeup line.
It may seem obvious, but foundation is likely the most important item in your makeup kit or gift set. It’s the makeup product that is most visible on the majority of your face and helps give you an even-looking complexion. It is also quite literally the foundation upon which you can build your highlighting, contouring, and blush. Speaking of which:
Blush can make a major difference in your look. It can add a pop of color to your face to draw attention where you want it, giving you a youthful, rosy complexion. And even if you already have naturally rosy cheeks, that can be lost under your foundation. Blush is essential to restore that lively blushing look to your face.
- Brushes/necessary equipment
When applying makeup, you need to have the right tools. And although many people have makeup brushes already, having one in a makeup kit ensures you have the right brush to apply the makeup in that kit, such as a kabuki brush for a mineral makeup kit. This is especially important when it comes to airbrush makeup because it requires a dedicated, special system to apply, so when buying an airbrush makeup kit, be sure to get one with an airbrush and compressor if you do not already have one.
