Are Makeup Kits Worth It? (Yes They Are)

Makeup kits are definitely worth it and you must opt for them the next time you are resupplying your makeup box. They are the smarter choice and you will receive many benefits. BP Guide discusses makeup kits in this article and gives you the 30 best makeup kits to choose from. Read on to know more.

Why You Should Opt for Makeup Kits

These are 3 basic reasons why makeup kits are the best.

Its Economical

A makeup combo or set costs half as much as makeup items bought individually and then put together. Sometimes combos cost less than that. Buying makeup combos is a smart way to support your makeup requirements. Each and every top makeup brand offers combos so there is no compromise in quality too. You will get the same products at just a fraction of the price.

Gives You Multiple Makeup Look Options


Makeup sets give you the opportunity to try on a variety of makeup looks. Something that is not possible with individual makeup products. For example, eyeliner will only enable you to try winged patterns but an eye makeup set (eyeliner, mascara, kajal, eyeshadow palette) will enable you to sport a wide variety of looks.

They Make Good Gifts

Makeup sets are excellent gift items. Suppose you have a friend who loves putting on makeup and you wish to indulge them on their birthday. Buying a single makeup item won’t suffice while buying everything individually will exceed your budget. This is when makeup sets come to the rescue.

How to Apply Makeup Using Makeup Kits

The following are 5 steps to put on full face makeup.

Prepare the Face

You need to prepare your face before you apply makeup to it. By preparation, we mean cleansing and toning the face. Scrub your face with a good face wash and pat dry. Make sure that your face is clear of all impurities and debris.

Apply Base Makeup

The second step is to apply the base makeup. The base makeup is the first layer of makeup and it converts the face into a canvas onto which you can paint any makeup look. The base makeup involves applying a foundation, primer and concealer. The foundation evens out the skin tone and gives uniformity to your complexion. The primer hides pores and gives a natural look. The concealer hides dark circles, blemishes, and scars.

Give Definition to the Face


The third step is to give a sculpted look to yourself where your features look more defined and sharp. You can do this with the help of a highlighter and contour. The highlighter will brighten the elevated parts of your face (cheekbones, nose bridge, chin, forehead) and the contour will darken the sunken parts. This light and shadow play will give an attractive depth to the face. The highlighter and contour complement each other and have to be applied in accordance with each other.

Eye and Brow Makeup

The eye and brow makeup will give more definition to the face. Eye makeup includes applying kajal, eyeliner, mascara, and eyeshadow. Eye makeup can be both subtle and bold. Subtle eye makeup involves just lining the shape of the eyes with makeup while bold makeup involves using bright colours and eyeliner patterns. Eyebrow makeup is pretty simple. It is darkening the eyebrows with an eyebrow pencil or drawing eyebrows if you have thin or shaved eyebrows.

Apply Lipstick

Finally, it is time to do your lips. Lip makeup is pretty straightforward. It involves covering your lips with pigmented lipsticks and/or lining them to give definition.
