Building a Makeup Toolkit from Scratch (with printable shopping list!)


One of the questions I am asked most frequently is, "What blush, lipstick, foundation {insert cosmetic product here} do you like best these days? What should I get?" It's no secret among my friends that I am a beauty product junkie, and I get a lot of enjoyment from trying as many new products as I can get my hands on, to see what performs best. I can't afford to buy them all of course, but I do buy more than what I believe the average person does, and I put each item to the test to see what's actually stellar, and what's mostly hype before I recommend it to others.

I've found over the years, that a lot of my favorite products are inexpensive and available at the drugstore or Ulta Beauty on the less expensive side of the store. I've also found a few high-end products that trump every other product in its category. 

As a way of helping those who may not enjoy trying beauty products in mass quantity the way that I do, I've put together a list of favorites, separated by category, that I feel confident in recommending based on personal experience and/or research. 

Below, you'll find a link to a printable shopping list that provides you with suggested products from foundation to mascara and everything else you'd need to create a basic makeup kit for yourself. Keep in mind, this isn't an advanced kit - I'm not including things like shimmery highlighters, setting sprays, pigments and cream contour products - this is a list of awesome staple products, and the quantities needed to create, what is in my opinion, a fantastic starter kit for anyone looking to try new makeup or just starting out in creating a makeup routine. 

Please note - there may be other products out there that are also amazing, and I just haven't personally discovered their awesomeness just yet, so don't discount something or feel like I disagree with your personal favorite, just because it isn't on this list! :-)

I hope you you find this tool helpful as you wander the cosmetic aisles
near you! 

XOXO
