Makeup Beginners Shopping List

Hey Whisperers,

After last weeks post on my makeup tricks and tips for makeup beginners i thought that i would create a makeup shopping list for people just starting out in makeup. I hope you enjoy this post.

 Makeup Beginner's Shopping List

 L'Oreal True Match Foundation

This foundation is definitely my favourite drugstore foundation. This foundation allows you to create a medium/natural coverage but also allows you build it up too full coverage. Obviously at £9.99 it isn't the most affordable foundation at the drugstore but i do think it is the best. If you are looking for something a little cheaper the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation is also a great alternative. 

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer 

The Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer is without a doubt the best drugstore concealer. It has amazing coverage and blends out amazingly. And obviously for only £4.19 it is a great price. 

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder

I'm pretty sure that this is the most popular drugstore powder. I have been using this powder since i started doing makeup and I still use it to this day. It sets foundation amazingly and keeps your face matte for hours and for only £3.99 it's a makeup must have.

 Revolution Blush Palette in Blush Goddess

I brought this palette a few weeks ago and i think it is perfect for makeup beginners. You get 4 blushes and 4 highlighters. Each blush is different which allows you experiment with which shade will suit you most and the highlights are just beautiful and go with pretty much any look. For £6.00 this palette is a definite makeup must have for me. 

Seventeen Define and Conquer Palette

Now although i don't think that bronzer is a must when starting out in makeup i thought i would add this product just in case you want to try our bronzer. This palette is pretty much my everyday bronzer palette. The bronzer isn't too orange and it blends amazingly for £5.99 it is definitely worth a try.

Freedom Pro 32 Innocent Collection Eyeshadow Palette

I got this palette free when i spent £15 on Freedom cosmetics and it has become one of my favourite palettes. This palette is perfect for beginners because it gives you a range of matte, shimmer, dark and light shades. I think this palette is great for experimenting with, it has incredible pigmentation and for £8 it is insanely cheap. 

Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Liner

Now alike the bronzer i don't think that liquid liner is a must for makeup beginners at all. It is frustrating, annoying and harder than it looks but like the bronzer i thought i would suggest one anyway. I love the Maybelline Master Precise liner because is it so easy to use. The felt tip pen is so slim that it makes applying the liner so much easier and for £5.99 it is quite affordable. However if you want a cheaper option just to practise with the MUA Eye Define Felt Liner is also a great deal for only £2.00.

Collection Extreme Coloured Length Mascara

This mascara is probably one of my favourite mascaras from the drugstore. Not only is it an amazing price for £2.99 but it lengthens and separates the lashes better than some high end mascaras i have used. For me mascara is a must when wearing makeup so i highly suggest getting one when you first start doing makeup.

Personally, i think when starting out in makeup brows are probably one of the most common areas that people either over do or mess up. Because of this instead of going for the full on fleeky brows from the get go i suggest going to get them waxed and then use a coloured brow gel like this one from L'Oreal which for £5.99 is amazing.

Freedom Bare Lipstick Colours

When starting out in makeup i think sticking to the neutral colours for lips is probably the best idea, because they are so easy to do. I love these Freedom lipsticks (review here) because for £5 you get 5 different colours. If you don't want to just use nudes you can always look at the MUA Lipsticks which you can buy separately for £1 each.  Obviously these lipsticks aren't going to be the same quality as say Mac but getting cheaper lipsticks will allow you to decide what colours suit your skin tone and personality without having to spend £16 a lipstick. I would also suggest getting a nude lip liner my favourite is MUA's Lip Liner in Caramel Nougat 

Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Oil Controlling Fixing Spray

Setting sprays can help save any makeup look. Like is said in my tips and tricks post, i have more than once gone a bit overboard with the face powders and setting spray has saved the day. The setting spray not only helps to absorb some of the excess powder but it also helps to create a barrier on top of your makeup making it last longer. This £5 Makeup Revolution setting spray is a great setting spray for everyday use because it does also help control oils. This setting spray is one of my favourite setting sprays because I do have quite oily skin my other favourite being the Avon MagiX Prime and Set Spray

Price of all of these products combined:


1 Foundation
1 Concealer
1 Powder
4 Blushers
4 Shimmer Highlighters
1 Bronzer
1 Matte Highlighter
32 Eyeshadows
1 Liquid Liner
1 Mascara
1 Eyebrow Gel/Plumper
5 Lipsticks
1 Setting Spray

I know that looking at that price it looks like a lot but when you consider how much you get it's insane compared to high end prices where sometimes even one eyeshadow palette can cost the same amount. I hope this post has helped you if you're just starting out in makeup or even if you're just looking for some new products.

Thanks for Reading,
Soph xoxo
