How to Build Your Makeup Collection

by Anush Bichakhchyan

We love this era of multiple choices and opportunities, but the choices may sometimes confuse you, especially if you are a beginner. It is how one feels when dealing with the world of makeup, hundreds of thousands of brands, dozens of makeup categories, and you are standing in front of the shelf. Where to start and what to do? We tried to create a simple guide with 5 tips on how to build your makeup collection.

Tip #1 High-end brand, low prices

Of course, some drug store brands have proved to be quite effective but as a beginner, let’s not experiment with your skin and treat it in the right way. No reason to pay much for branded skincare or cosmetics. There are hundreds of ways to get the same product at third-party platforms with much lower prices. By the way, Arkive is one of them. Search the shop to find your favorites.

Tip #2 Less is More

The huge selection of makeup products sometimes makes us want more and more, and one day you end up with tons of cosmetics and skincare that you haven’t even touched. Besides wasting money, it is about wasting products and polluting the environment with garbage. Start with one type of foundation or primer. Try to take slowly to find your brand and your product best for your skin.

Tip #3 Try to stick to basics

Again, we have a great choice of colorful glittery cosmetics with attractive packaging that you want to touch, smell, and taste. It is impossible to try all of them, so better stick to basic products for skin care and decorative cosmetics, to sum up, your makeup kit.

Tip #4 Sales, Sales, Sales!

Oh, we do love sales! Even the most insignificant one makes us make the purchase easier than the regular price. What we do love about modern consumerism is the endless opportunities to find discounts and special offers. At Arkive, you will always have your discount on top products.

Tip #5 Don’t save n makeup tools

Makeup products are essential, but they may not look as hot as supposed to without proper makeup tools. Choose professional ones that will serve you long, and don’t forget to take care of them.

Bonus tip What to put in your makeup kit.
