Best Beginner Friendly Makeup Essentials

Best Beginner Friendly Makeup Essentials

Best beginner friendly makeup essentials to help you get started!

Sometimes, where to begin when it comes to makeup may be overwhelming as well as a bit intimidating

So I’m hoping my list of best beginner friendly makeup essentials will be helpful and useful. 

In my opinion, the items listed below are the “Best Beginner Friendly Makeup Essentials”!

Additionally, I agree with beauty ‘gurus’ who say skincare first

Because you want your skin to be cleansed and well prepped as well as hydrated before applying makeup.

My list of best beginner friendly makeup essentials includes everything from lip balm to lashes.

Lip Balm

Rebels Refinery Geometric Pineapple Lip Balm as well as Sephora Collection Lip Balm

Face Primer

  • No Budge Matte Shadow Stick by e.l.f. Cosmetics comes in eight (8) shades; and Bombshell is the shade pictured
      • Although the No Budge Stick is referred to as an eyeshadow stick it also doubles as an eyeliner!
Eyebrow Pencil:

Essence Eyebrow Designer Pencil comes in six (6) colors and Brown 02 is pictured

Lash Applicator Tool:

J.Cat Beauty No Hassle Eyelash Application Helper


So Wispy Curated Bestsellers Lash Collection by Kiss are an excellent choice for those new to wearing lashes.

Wispy Lash Collection features five (5) different styles and each of them is not too dramatic.

However they will help to add that enhanced look to the eyes!

Lash Styles In The Collection:
  1. Ritzy Wispy Lashes
  2. Pompadour Wispy Lashes
  3. #11 Wispy Lashes
  4. No. 09 Wispy Lashes
  5. Style 01 Wispy Lashes

Ardell also has similar lash styles!

Glue for the Lashes:

Clear Lash Couture Adhesive by Kiss is  pictured and it happens to be my absolute fav.


Because it’s clear and by chance it takes more than one (1) attempt to apply the lashes then my face and eye makeup are not ruined.

In other words since the clear lash adhesive goes on as well as dries clear it won’t show any lash application ‘mistakes’ like the black lash adhesive.

Lip Liner and Lippie:

Suede Matte Velvet Soft Lip Liner by NYX comes in forty eight (48) shades and the color Alabama (brick red) is pictured

NYX Butter Gloss Lip Glosses come in thirty one (31) shades and Madeline (mid tone nude) is pictured

Butter Glosses are so yummy and they are a fan favorite for good reason!

Five (5) Setting Spray Options:
  1. Vegan Collagen Hydrating Setting Mist by Pacifica Beauty
  2. Cherry Matte Setting Spray by Pacifica Beauty 
  3. Crystal Dew Setting Spray by Pacifica Beauty
  4.  Matte Finish Long Lasting Makeup Setting Spray Vegan Formula by NYX Professional Makeup
  5. Vegan Formula Dewy Finish Long Lasting Makeup Setting Spray by NYX Professional Makeup 
Makeup Mirror:

Conair Reflections Lighted Makeup Mirror

Makeup Brush Sets as well as Beauty Sponge:

I did not list any mascaras because I truly believe this is a makeup product category that should be tested out.

For example, try different brands as well as formulas to find the one that works best for you.

But, I do recommend the Lash Guard and Comb by Tweezerman.

Even though, some reviews indicate it’s an unnecessary and extra step, I prefer the way my mascara looks when I use it.


Read and follow the product’s instructions.
