The investment is generally high and nd it is not possible to buy all at once. First because, before you buy everything that is available in the cosmetic shop, you need to know what products are good for your skin type.
A foundation that has an effect and perfect fixing in a combination skin can kill the production and the health of the face used in an oily skin.
So, for the first makeup kit you need to appreciate basic and essential products. With time and experience, you can discover the compositions suitable for the skin type and products for  more elaborate productions.
Many women start the first makeup kit for cheaper products. However, they are not always for the type of skin or useful for the moment. The money that can be invested is the first factor that needs to be thought.
But even if the desire is not for established brands in the world of makeup, it is important to appreciate the quality, paying attention mainly to the possible allergic reactions of the product. Drug stores, websites, and specialty shops you can  find cheap products, but are dermatologically tested and safe.
Makeup is not the so difficult as some women imagine it is. So I prepared a list with the basic beauty products that every woman must have and are able to make miracles in the face in few simple steps. With these items, it is possible to get a beautiful visual with minimal work. Check out what are the must-have products and see that it is not necessary to spend lots of money to be always beautiful.

Essential products

A Good Foundation
The foundation is essential to cover imperfections, standardize the color of the skin and moisturize it. It's hard to find the perfect product for the first purchase, but to do not make a mistake, choose a foundation that respects the characteristics of the skin. Oily skins need products with matte or dry effect, which control the brightness during application. The combination or dry skin fits more a creamy and moisturizing cosmetics.
To set the color, forget the test on the back of the hand. The best option is to test in the face since the parts of the body have different colorations.


The Foundation is often dispensable, but the concealer is a must-have. It is good to have always a good quality product that has the exact color of your skin to correct the little spots, wrinkles, pimples or variations of tones in the face. Despite good coverage, the concealer guarantees a more natural result.


The powder  is a product that is responsible for finalizing the skin. There are two product versions in the market: loose and compact powder. But which one is better?
The compact is designed for touch-ups throughout the day or for oily skin, but can leave the lines expressions marked and with a spotty coverage.
The loose powder and allows a thin transparent skin coverage free of spots or marked expression lines.
If you are undecided, the translucent powder solves the problem. Always apply with an appropriate brush.

The fast fashion came to stay, but you must also think of a conscious and sustainable consumption, which resulted in the slow fashion. I'm bringing to you in this article some tips to follow this trend and buy clothes that will last much longer.
In contrast to the fast fashion that is so fashionable, one of the current trend is the slow fashion. A trend that bet on the quality and durability of the clothing, from the viewpoint of sustainable and conscious consumption.
The great goal is to bet on the quality of the key pieces that transit from season to season, pieces that easily adapt to the current trends.
Against the production of massive and low-quality clothes, the slow fashion defends the creation of timeless pieces, handmade, with natural and durable fabrics, like cotton, linen and silk and soft colors, as well as in small-scale production and local that function more like workshops than industries.
Almost all the clothes that are now on the market at affordable prices are made with polyester and plastic fabric of low quality.
