Top 10 Beginner Must-Haves: Part I

As a dark skinned African American woman I found it hard to get advice on makeup when I wanted to start a collection. It was also hard finding a starting point or some holy grail products for my skin. I have put together 10 of my go to and must have beauty products. I decided to break up the lists into 2 parts so you would have time to check your make up stash or to start creating one.  If you think I missed some feel free to comment below. Now, let’s get pretty!!!

1. Taj mahal NARS blush: It might look crazy when you look at this blush but it is truly gorgeous on all brown-skinned beauties no matter what race. Orange helps make our skin look like it has a natural summer glow. Even though the cost is a little high ($27) it could very well be the only one you need.
Available at: Sephora, Bleu Mercury

2. Revlon liquid eyeliner: with so many different brands this is truly my most reached for liquid eyeliner and at $6 it is easy to keep buying more. The felt tip applicator never dries out and is easy to use even for beginners. If you still not sure how to use liquid eyeliner there are plenty of YouTube tutorials to help.
Available at: CVS, Target, Walmart, Rite Aid, etc…
