Amazon has lots of useful things for us makeup and beauty lovers. From storage, to tools, to products themselves, you can find it all on Amazon. Here are a few things that I would suggest any makeup fan had a look at.
For those of you whose makeup collection is growing, you may be beginning to notice that it takes up a lot of space, and just a makeup bag isn't going to cut it anymore. We can't all have the picturesque vanities we see on Pinterest, with everything perfectly organised and put away neatly, although perhaps we can come close to some semblance of tidiness with these tips and ideas.
I'm just going to apologise in advance for the lack of photos in this post. I didn't realise how many of the products on this list I'd actually run out of. Whoops. Hopefully the information is still useful! :)
When I first started getting into makeup, I found the amount of choice out there to be very overwhelming. For that reason, I wanted to compile this little guide for those who are new to makeup to start off their makeup collection. If you want to put together a kit for someone you know, or for yourself, then keep reading!
First point about this post: all of these products are cruelty free. Start as you mean to go on - if you start creating your makeup collection with no cruelty products, you won't be repurchasing any and won't get used to cruel products. If you care about animals in any way, do not buy products that have been animal tested. It means that a little bit of research goes into picking the products rather than just reaching for the first foundation you come across, but ultimately, you'll be happy to know that no animals suffered to create your collection!
Second point, on a happier note: all of these products are drugstore. You can walk into Boots or Superdrug for any of these. I did this because people wanting to start their makeup collection are probably fairly young and don't necessarily have thousands to spend on makeup. Also, when you're just starting out, you might not know what suits you. No one wants to spend £30 on foundation to discover it's five shades too light, or drop £25 on an eyeshadow palette containing only one shade that works for you. If you make this mistake having only spent a fiver though, it's not too big a deal. Once you're more used to it, you can safely spend more if you want to.
This is going to be quite a long post, because I plan to explain what each product is for as well as include a recommendation. Bear with me, as I hope you find this post helpful.
