flatlay with beauty products

At times choosing beauty and makeup products can be overwhelming, but do we actually need all those products on the market? Luckily, the answer is no! Today I'm going to share with you a few basic beauty must-haves every girl is going to use in her beauty routine, without spending all of her budget on unnecessary products. Who needs to pay for an expensive face mask, when at home an avocado mask is just as good?

  • #1: Skin Cleanser

Every skincare routine starts with a cleanser. Finding a good skin cleanser that fits your skin type can be difficult, but once you find what you need you will fall in love with your skin once again. Make sure your cleanser doesn't irritate or dry out your skin and your skin feels comfortable after the procedure. You may want to pair the cleanser with a soft, but good working sponge or washing brush.

  • #2: Skin Moisturizer or Vitamin Serum

Believe me, if you have one of these two products your skin is ready to face it all. You are going to need just a small amount of lightweight skin moisturizer to hydrate your skin and bring it back to life. An oil-based vitamin serum is good for those who have dry and mature skin types, plus you can use it instead of a primer. There is no need to buy expensive or famous brands, just find a product that works the best for your skin.

  • #3: Pure Natural Oil

And once again it is not important what oil you are going to choose, how expensive you will pay, or what brand you are going to use. Usually, people like to use coconut oil for beauty purposes, but apricot, rose or even olive oils are just as good. I even use my kitchen soybean oils at times! You can mix it with your makeup products, or apply it as a moisturizer, works all the time for me.

  • #4: Black Eye Kohl

You can't even imagine how much gorgeous makeup looks you can create with one black eye kohl! Cat eyeliner, black classic smoky eyes, smoked eyeliner, fill in your eyebrows, and even apply it on your lips. Options are endless, the product is one. Give a preference to hard regular eye kohl over soft and waterproof.

  • #5: Translucent Powder 

Translucent skin powders are multi-functional, and I don't even think I need to explain why. You can use this powder to set your foundation, touch up the skin throughout the day, or even blend the makeup if it turned out to be harsh. Some girls can even use it instead of dry shampoo, it works well if you are blond!
