Hi,   Girlssss………..

After a long time, I know too long. Was bit busy, then went for

vacation to Dubai. Very very nice place to visit atleast once in life


This topic is about makeup kit for beginners. Who will need mini-

mal things to start. Hope you all will like what i have put together.

I have divide this in to 2 category High end & low end.

MAC & Revlon, Maybelline.

*** MAC ***

I have done Makeup Brush starter kit few months back. I thought

I'll do makeup product thing also.



1…  MAC Prep + Primer----  It preparer's your skin ( that’s  after

moisturize your skin ) for a even base to work the foundation and to

stay put the makeup for longer time.



2…  MAC Concealer--- Their are number of diff. once. I’ll be reviewing

few of them, which i have tested & tried.

Studio Finish Concealer with SPF 35-----heavy cover.

Select Cover-Up--- Slight liquid. Doesn’t crease. ( On Me ).

Select Moisturecover--- With a wand. Did smudge on me after few hrs.

Concealer is to be applied on under eye circle, sides of nose,

around your lips, blemishes, & over the eyelid. But you needn’t use if  skin

is even, &  flawless.  Just apply foundation and you are done.



3…  MAC Powder foundation---

Studio Fix Powder foundation--- This is full cover Foundation. Love it.

Mineralize Skin Finish Natural --- Itz natural but buildable foundation.

Buff this nicely, then spritz with Fix +. You have a Flawless base. This is

done same with Studio Fix also.


4…  MAC Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel (blacktrack)----  A staple thing in a kit.

No smudging, or budging, goes smooth, when applying. But be careful

keep it upside down, when in use, otherwise it will dry out before time.

Use angled brush, MAC No.266 or SIGMA No.E 65.

Seal the gel liner  or liquid liner with powder e/s. For soft smoky


Have a link to Sigma Makeup. Click to it. They are worth spending.

Please wash & care for your brushes. They will serve  you for many



5…  MAC Paint Pots--- E/S base---- They come in varies type, Pots,

Tubes. I have used Painterly ( matt finish ) & Bare Canvas ( slight

shimmer, but nice) Soft Ochre (  Light Yellow matt base). They are nice,

if don’t have oily eyelids.

Or use Urban Decay first then one of them. Your e/s will

not crease. It will stay put.


6…  MAC FIX + ---  A must have in your makeup kit. If have dry skin

spray first on skin let it dry then apply daily cream or vice versa. It

give’s a dewy look or want a  e/s to stick, spray little fix+, The color

be vibrant.

7…  Eye Pencil- Power point pencil crayon--- Engraved,  Teddy---- Good

pencil, if don’t have watery eyes. Becoz it will smudge after a while.



8…  MAC Mascara--- I haven’t used Mac, but love L’oreal Volume Million Lashes –Extra Black,

Revlon- Water Tight Mascara—Water Resistant, Smudge Proof.

Maybelline- Define Lash—No Clumps, Separated, Sensuously Lon Lash,

water Proof.

9…  Eye Brow Pencil Or Shadow--- In your brow color. Seal with

transparent Mascara or Shadow wax.

Your are done with all the things, Now some Dupes of Mac Products

for cheaper budget.

Mac  Face primer DUPE ** The Body Shop Vitamin C skin Boost. Very good

primer. Makes skin baby soft. OR ** L’oreal Studio Secrets Professional

Smoothing Resurfacing Primer.  This i got from Dubai. In India it has a

diff. name but i think the same.


MAC Eye Primer DUPES **  ELF is one. Only a Dollar. Good product.

**Urban Decay one of the best, i have ever used. Very good for oily lid,

nothing like it. **Too Faced i haven’t used it, but got a sample in Sephora.

While i was in Dubai. **Benefit Stay- Don’t Stray used it, nice but

have too put Urban Decay underneath for a better base.( All Problem

is oily eyelids)



MAC Concealer DUPES **Garnier Anti Dark Circle eye roll-on

(medium, light ). **The Body Shop concealer pencil. ** Revlon

PhotoReady concealer. ** Milani Secret Cover Concealer Cream, Oil-free.

This is water proof, long wearing, Fragrance free.


MAC Fluidline DUPE ** Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel

Liner. Nice stay’s for good time.



MAC Liquid eye liner (not used) DUPE ** Maybelline Hyper Liner,

Nice. ** Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner, One of the best, Good on Lower
