bareMinerals Nothing Beats the Original Complexion Kit [Medium Tan 18]
The first thing that you’ll notice about bareMinerals is their amazing ability to create products that go on like silk and stay put all day. These complexion products work wonders for your skin, and they don’t contain any parabens or other harmful ingredients.
This complexion kit contains three essentials for flawless, glowing skin: The Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream is an all-in-one moisturizer and foundation that’s great for oily skin; the mineral veil setting powder is a finishing touch that helps control oil, shine and blotchiness; and bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation is a medium coverage foundation that won’t clog pores or cause breakouts.
They were one of the first at the forefront of clean beauty, and these top-performance complexion products prove it!
Sigma Beauty Travel Kit in Make Me Classy
If you’re a makeup lover, you know that brushes are a must-have. With makeup comes makeup brushes — well, we wish they came together, but unfortunately most are sold separately. That’s why we’re obsessed with this brush kit from Sigma: It has eight of the essential brushes you need to prep and perfect your cosmetic creations. The set includes a stippling brush, powder brush, and flat top kabuki brush, as well as angled foundation, blush and contour brushes. They all have synthetic bristles, which are great for getting into hard-to-reach areas (like those pesky corners of your nose). The case is super convenient because it keeps everything together and makes it easy to transport.
Charlotte Tilbury The Ingénue Makeup Look Gift Set
A makeup artist favorite, Charlotte Tilbury’s The Ingénue is a gorgeous gift set that’s both classic and covetable. It comes with a powder highlighter, liquid eyeliner and mascara, bronzer and blush, lip glosses, and eye palettes.
If you’re looking for a kit that includes everything you need to create a full face of makeup, then this is the one for you. The powder highlighter can be used all over your face or just on specific areas like cheekbones or cupid’s bow while the liquid eyeliner can be used on top lash line or waterline to create an intense look. The bronzer and blush will give your skin a dewy glow while the lip glosses create an irresistible stain on lips.
Jones Road Start-Up Kit
We love this Jones Road Start-Up Kit, because it’s the perfect mix of essentials, must-haves, and splurges. It includes a rich brown eyeshadow that you can use for your brows, crease or even conceal gray roots. The clear gloss is great for adding shine to your lips and cheeks. As for the eyeliner and tinted eye shadow, they’re universal must-haves for any makeup kit.
The best part about beauty products is that they can be used for more than one thing. The eyeshadow in this Jones Road Start-Up Kit can be used as an eyebrow filler or concealer at your roots. And the tinted eye shadow can be used as a cream highlighter on your cheekbones or lips if you want something more subtle than powder.
A good set of brushes is essential to any makeup kit and this one has everything from foundation to applying powder blush. We love that it also comes with a brush holder so you won’t lose them all over your bathroom countertop!

Lime Crime Super Computer Nebula Bundle
One of the best things about being a makeup artist is that you get to play with all the best products. You get to try out everything from the newest launches to cult favorites that have been around for years. I get to see what works, what doesn’t and what products are just flat out gimmicks.
But there are some products that really stand out from the crowd. And this latest launch from Lime Crime is no exception. This out-of-this-world makeup bundle will have you looking like a literal shooting star. After you swipe on the lavender-hued mascara, dab on some of the sparkling liquid eyeshadow with your fingers for galactic eyes. Finally, make your cheekbones stand out from the universe with the three-pan highlighting palette.
The colors in this collection are so bright and bold that they’ll look great on any skin tone or eye color (especially if you’re trying to make a statement). The three-pan highlight palette works on all skin tones and comes with three shades: Champagne, Rose Gold and Lavender Quartz (the one pictured here). The two eyeshadows come in Lavender Quartz and Champagne — both popular colors right now.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Kit
This kit has everything you need for a professionally shaped arch. It includes brow gel, a spoolie, brow powder, tweezers, and brow stencils to create a seamless look—even if you’ve never drawn on your eyebrows before.
The kit also comes with two different shades of brown: a lighter shade for blondes, redheads, and fair-skinned brunettes; and a darker shade for brunettes with black hair. This is ideal if you have really dark hair or want more definition in your brows.
The kit comes in two sizes: mini, which contains just the essentials; and deluxe, which includes everything from the mini plus two additional shades of brown to fill in your brows with precision. The deluxe kit also comes with an eyebrow brush so you can easily fill in any gaps or touch up any areas where your brows may have faded during the day (which we all know happens).
As a beginner, you don’t need a lot of makeup to get started.
As a beginner, you don’t necessarily need a lot of makeup, you can start with one then know what you want from there. You can use the same product for different things and experiment with different colors. For example, if you want to start with an eye shadow palette, look for a neutral palette that has multiple colors in it that can be used as eyeliner or eyeshadow.
