I'm A Makeup Beginner

Hi Everyone, I'm Anna!


This week is my 12th Birthday, and my mum is deciding to let me buy a bit of makeup. Do any of you have any suggestions on makeup that is very good! But, also not so expensive! 


(HINT: I LOVE anything Nars&Hello Kitty)

Hi Anna!

Happy Birthday! For your age, I would keep your makeup looking light and fresh. For the bare minimum, all you need is eyeliner, mascara and a gloss! When i was your age i also chose to wear foundation (because i had trouble skin), blush, and eyeshadow! How much product you choose is up to you/ your mother's preference, but I'm going to suggest a product of each for you.


Eyeliner: Try using Urban Decay's 24/7 glide on eye pencil! They come in a variety of colors that you'll never get bored with! But for your age, and since you are a beginner, i would stick with a shade of brown such as bourbon, or underground! you can find it here:



Eyeshadow& Blush Palette: You mentioned that you like Hello Kitty, so I found a palette that i think would be perfect for you!! it comes with 4 gorgeous eyeshadow colors and 2 very pretty, flattering blushes. the colors are all very wearable and age appropriate! also, you could use the dark brown color as a liner, so that could save you some money!! you can find it here:

for gloss, i reccomend Nars "turkish delight" it's a beautiful light pink sorbet color that looks great on everyone and would pair very nicely with the hello kitty palette. The quality of nars products is also very nice! very much worth the money! you can find it here:
