I'm one of those people who go bare face anywhere or wear minimum makeup so that my face at least would look recognizable. The amount of makeup these days girl's use is just insane. I don't like to spend much on makeup so I have all the budget makeup products you see under Rs.500.
I'm gonna share all my basic makeup essential that I've been using for two years now and they are the best in their range of product category.
1. Maybelline Baby Lips (Berry Crush) Rs.133
I think this the best lip balm I have ever used. It just serves it's purpose totally. Keeps my lips moisturized almost 7-8 hours. Obviously, you have re-apply after every one hour. It gives a slightly pink appearance and shines to your lips. And it smells yummy like strawberry.
2. Lakme Absolute Matt real Skin Natural Mousse (Beige Honey) Rs. 581
This has been my foundation for 2 years now. It's not a liquid foundation, it's a mousse -coverage is moderate. It is a mixture of powder and emollient. It gives matte to a semi-matte finish. Best used for combination to oily skin. It feels weightless because of its air-like texture. My skin tone is wheatish so I use Beige Honey tone. You can choose yours according to your skin tone.
3. Maybelline Lasting Drama Eye Liner Drama Gel Liner, Black (Rs. 399)
I have used many eyeliners and the winged liner game is just not something I can do. I prefer just a corner line or maybe sometimes just a line . And for that this gel liner is best. It has a super soft brush with it. And you can use it for a long time it's not gonna dry easily in a bottle like other liners. Even if does you can easily add some drops of almond oil and you are good to use it again. It last really long.
4. Maybelline Color Show Lipstick, Red Rush 211, Coffee Break 311(Rs. 244, 239)
This is my all-time wear lipstick. I don't go out without applying this one on my lip. You girls would agree with me if I say - Red Lipstick just makes your makeup look enhanced and makes your skin tone one shade lighter too. I don't know why that happens but it just lifts up the simplest makeup you do. Not a matte lipstick it has its moisture. So no chapped lips at all.

5. Maybelline New York White Super Fresh Compact Pearl, 8g(Rs. 122)
This compact power as the name suggests makes your face look super fresh. I use it to set my makeup. And you can easily carry it with you in your purse. If you are looking for a compact on a budget it will just fit right in it.
6. Plum Green Tea Alcohol-Free Toner, 200ml (Rs. 292)
So to remove all that makeup instead of using makeup remover I use this toner from the plum. It basically takes out all the dirt from your face. It has green tea extract which is really good for acne-prone skin and it also has Glycolic acid which helps weed out dead cells. It's alcohol-free so it won't sting when you apply it to your face like other alcohol-based toners.
