Beginners Makeup Kit|Drugstore Products Recommendation

Hey everyone…!!! if you are new into makeup and have no clue about how to build your makeup kit,then this post is for you. I know how confusing it gets when you are first starting out with your makeup. specially now days when we are so overwhelmed with so many options in the market. But no worries !! I got you sorted ! Everything you’ll need to build your makeup bag is here in ”Beginners Kit.” Now let’s begin..!


first of all to get that flawless and smooth base you have to have a primer in your kit. I tell you, even I’ve been ditching my primer back in days when I started my makeup. but when i know the importance of it , i never skip my Primer. it’s not only makes your makeup long lasting, but also creates a wall between your makeup and your skin. so that your heavy makeup won’t sit into your pores and cause acne and breakouts. So for primers i have few options that you can add in your Beginners Makeup Kit –

  • Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Primer ( Rs. 675/-) Buy here

So after preparing your skin, you would need a foundation to start your makeup. How you would choose your foundation, depends on your skin types and skin tones. And PLEASE Guyssss DO NOT choose a foundation lighter than your skin tone to make your face ”Fair n White”. I’m telling you, its not a cute look at all. choose the foundation shade as close as possible to your skin tone . so for that here i’m giving you few options thats pretty much suitable for all skin types to add in your Beginners Makeup Kit –

  • Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation (Rs. 599/-)
  • Nykaa SKINenius Foundation (Rs. 575/-)
  • Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation (Rs. 550/-) Buy all from Nykaa


Moving on to concealers. if you want to conceal/hide any blemishes on your face then you would need a that is an exact match of your skintone. and if you wanna highlight your face (e;i , under your eyes, bridge of your nose, center of your forehaed ) then you would need 1or 2 shades lighter than your skintone. So choose accordinly. here are some options for a Beginners Makeup Kit –

Next step is to set our base in place and for that we need a compact powder. not only to set the base but also for a little bit of touch ups we need a compact powder. here are the options –

Now, as a beginner you should have an eyeshadow palette that you can use in so many ways for almost most of your eyelooks from nutrals everyday kinda look to bold smokey eyes and a party wear. However as a beginner i would suggest to go for a safer shades e;i warm nutrals to add in your Beginners Makeup Kit. and also i would suggest having one glitter eyeshadow as well for a festive party wear looks which is easy to use also. here are the suggestions –

Kajal and eyeliners are every girl’s best friend. even i frist started my makeup with just an eyeliner. though i wasn’t (i’m not) a kajal person at all. but i know a lot of you guys love kajal as well. so here are my recommendations for kajals that you can also apply as eyeliners too. and also few eyeliners recommendations-

  • Plum Nature Studio All Day Wear Kajal (Rs. 495/-)
  • Lakme Eyeconic Kajal (Rs. 180/-)

  • Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner (Rs. 500/-) Buy all 4 here
  • Stay Quirky BadAss Liquid Eyeliner (Rs. 175/-) Buy here


Mascara is also one of the most important things in your Makup Kit. it really opens up the eyes and makes a hude difference to your eye looks. so never skip that..Okey!! No doubt, Maybelline makes some kickass mascaras for sure. here are the options along with one of my fav mascaras –

  • Essence Lash Princess Mascara (Rs. 399/-) Buy here
  • Maybelline Volume Express Hyper Curl Mascara (Rs. 310/-) Buy here
  • Wet n Wild Mega Length Mascara (Rs. 299/-) Buy here


Now coming back to the face. after applying foundation n concealer n powders ,our face look really flat and the depth of your face disappears and to get that back we need a bronzer. I know alot of people skip bronzers in their makeup kit. but trust me once you start using it you’ll see the difference by yourself. for bronzers here are the options –

  • Wet n Wild MegaGlo Contouring Palette (Rs. 499/-) Buy here
  • Sugar Contour De Force Mini Bronzer (Rs. 399/-) Buy here
  • Moda Face Blusher – Brown , Dark Brown (Rs 350/-) Buy here
  • Miss Claire Single Big Blusher – No. 10 (Rs. 225/-) Buy here

10 – BLUSH

Next up is Blush. to give our face a healthy n natural lookin color we need a blush. you can add these following blush options to your makeup kis –

  • Wet n Wild Color Icon Blush (Rs. 299/-)
  • Sugar Contour De Force Mini Blush (Rs. 299/-)
  • Maybelline Fit Me Blush (Rs. 440/-) Buy All here


Highlighter is the most fun part of makeup. we all love to glow..right?? weather its subtle glow or a blinding one,but a highlighter looks really pretty. specially in festive or a party makeup looks. So here are the highlighters that you can add in your makeup kit-

  • Sivanna Shimmer Brick – 02 (Rs. 250/- to 299/-) Buy here

12- FACE PALETTE (Optional)

Although you can also go for a complete face palette, rather than single products. which comes with a Bronzer,Blush and Highlighter altogether. you don’t have to carry 3 different products in your makeup kit, just one palette and you are goot to go! but It’s totally up to you. for face palette, my recommendations are-

  • Maybelline Face Studio Master Contour Palette (Rs. 950/-) Buy here
  • Sugar Contour De Force Face Palette (Rs. 799/-) Buy here


Now Finally….Lipsticks! ”A girl can never have enough lipsticks”. Hence, there are endless options for lipsticks in the market with different finishes n formulas. So for a kit i would suggest having couple of shades from nudes to pinks to browns and also one classic red color. here i’m giving you few options for different formulas n finishes to choose from-
