I remember how exciting it was for me when I had one of my first makeup products for beginners; an actual compact powder when I was young. I had put it on my face thickly and my mother couldn’t help but laugh. The following day, she showed me her makeup collection and that was the start of a lifelong lust for makeup.
It has been a long time ago and although nowadays I like to pick me some high-end luxury product from time to time, I also could not help but notice all the awesome makeup products for beginners out in the market today. From lipsticks to primers, I know this generation is having a blast exploring the many different makeup products they can get their hands on.
