Makeup starter kit
Every beauty junkie worth her weight in products needs to start somewhere.
And to me, putting together your first make-up kit is definitely a rite of passage deserving of extra special attention.
So here are a few essentials to get you on your way to becoming a bona fide beauty buff:
Until you get into the swing of things and decide on what sort of foundation coverage you prefer, a tinted moisturiser is a great way to start. Not only will it keep your skin hydrated throughout the day, but it’ll also bring subtle colour to your complexion and help even out your skin tone. Opt for something with an SPF to keep you protected from the elements.
Splurge on: become Tinted Moisturiser SPF 30+
When you’re starting off, it’s best to keep things simple until you master the art of make-up application. So forget trying to use a million-and-one products, simply put a pop of colour into your cheeks and your entire face will look fresh and illuminated (just ask Bobbi Brown – she’ll agree!).
Splurge on: Bobbi Brown Blush
Save with: Rimmel London Mono Blush
Lash lengthening mascara
Vital to every good beauty kit, a lash lengthening mascara will help to elongate your lashes and give you a full, sexy flutter – whether or not you decide to wear any eyeshadow.

If you’re a teenager, then unfortunately spots and blemishes will be no stranger to you. But that doesn’t mean you can’t do your best to disguise them! Keeping a good concealer in your kit is essential – look for something with a creamy consistency (so that it doesn’t dry and flake) and a long-wear formula.
