Makeup Must-Haves for Beginners

A beginner without any basic make up would probably be mind-boggled by the insane number of cosmetic choices. Just for anyone who needs help starting their makeup collection, this is my list of basic make up must haves.

*All recommended make-up items are based on things that I've recently used and found to be really good. Tehee. :)

1) Foundation
A foundation whether in powder, pressed, liquid or mousse format all serve to even out your complexion and create a flawless face. Sometimes foundation is used to alter skin tone but mostly it should blend with your natural skin color. It also serves as the base for all your other makeup so choose your shade carefully. Test foundation on the edge of your jaw for the closest match.
