Make Up Tips | Putting Together Your Make Up Kit
Being a girl means having A LOT of “wants” and “needs” but one thing every girl MUST have in her bag is her make up kit or her “kikay kit”. Having a make up kit is now essential, not just because of emergencies such as running into your major crush, or being invited to an impromptu night out, but also because of practical reasons such as attending formal events or going to interviews.
Here are some of the basic suggestions and make up tips on putting together your make up kit.
Choosing The Best Make Up Products
Don’t be afraid to invest in make up, especially if you are a make up artist, because this will greatly affect your career as a make up professional. At the same, first timers or those who aren’t familiar with the make up market might be overspending or investing too much on products that won’t exactly fit their needs.
The challenge is to put together the right products without compensating value for money, or the make up quality.
Concealer – A concealer is essential for hiding blemishes, sores, pimples, eyebags or other unwanted marks.
Be careful to choose a shade that matches your foundation or your powder and pick a concealer and a shade that blends easily with your skin tone.
