In this blog, we are going to provide you information on 10 main items which you should carry as part of your makeup kit.

If you know Malayalam, you can watch video tutorial in Malayalam here.

Here is the list of 10 main items that should be present in your makeup kit.


Foundation should be of the color that suits you. Remember, we need only one foundation. We don't need many foundations. You need only one foundation that matches your skin tone and skin type. When applied, foundation must be natural and should not be heavy or cakey or ashy. You must have a foundation that matches your skin tone in your kit.


Different types of concealers are available in market. You can use any concealer of your choice. You can use liquid concealers if it suits your skin to camouflage the dark circles under your eyes. If you have blemishes, you can camouflage with the help of concealers. So one should always have concealers with them. Plenty of liquid concealers are available in market. You can buy any of your choice.


We should always set the concealer with powder. You can buy loose powder like this which is yellow in color. Or you can buy compact powder. Compact powders are available in compact. It must be transparent, that is, there should not be any colour element otherwise it should be yellow based. Only then, it will suit our skin. Always set the concealer with the powder.


In our Indian culture, if we don't use eyeliner we get an empty feeling. There should be one Kajal pencil with everyone. Kajal pencils are not expensive. Its available in quality brands in affordable rates. It is better to be waterproof because in hot climate it will be long lasting. If it is a Kajal, it can be used on upper part and lower part of the eyes.

We get Gel liners also. Those who likes Gel liners can use them and those who likes liquid liners can use them. We should always have a Eyeliner with us. Likewise, its ok to draw upper part of eyes without drawing the lower part. But never draw your lower part of the eyes without drawing upper part, then your eyes look smaller. Either draw on the upper part of your eyes or draw on both upper and lower part of your eyes.

Eyebrow kit

There are so many products available in market for Eyebrows. In Eyebrow kit, it will contain both cream and powder otherwise it will contain only powder. Brow pencils are available. Be careful that you go for dark brown or dark grey.

Eye shadow Palette

We need only a basic Eye shadow Palette. Eye shadow palette with Neutral tones will suit our skin tone and are available in market. It is good to have a palette through which you can do different, multiple looks.


Everyone knows that in our natural skin tone, we don't get much flush of colour. So we should have at least one blush tone. Lekshmi Menon generally advises pink colour or coral colour. This will suit majority of the skin tone. You don't have to buy expensive ones. You will get nice blush from ordinary brands in Indian market. You can buy them accordingly. If you have these colours, it will go with many looks. As soon as you put the blush, naturally you get a nice flush of colour. We don't need too much, just a bit. So you have to use only these colour.


Even if we do not use eyeliners, we should put Mascara. We have lot of Mascara available in market. Its endless. From affordable rate to expensive ones. You can buy affordable one. With the Mascara, apply to the upper lashes as well as lower lashes we get a look that our eyes are wide open. If you are in a hurry and have no time to do eyeliner, just put the Mascara alone.

Lip Liners

The main reason for putting Lip Liners is that, it's a creamy base and thus give an even tone for those who have pigmentation. It also help Lipsticks to last longer. You need any of 2 or 3 pencils in your kit either Pinky brown or plummy colour or deep purple colour. These colours can be used for different looks. And these types of Lip Liners will go with many Lipsticks. For the pink lipstick, we can use these colours as base. These are nice base for Lipsticks.These colours will match majority of the skin tones. If you have 2 or 3 lip liners, it will be a great set for Makeup kit.


Lots of lipsticks are available in market but we always recommend for one pink Lipstick. Definitely, buy one pink lipstick as it tend to match our skin tone. Wear it when you go to the office in the morning, teachers can wear it to the schools or colleges and for college going students. This is complementary neutral colour. Don't buy light pinks because it won't compliment your skin tone. If possible, you can buy a pink palette.

So this is our Makeup Kit. First Foundation, second Concealer, third is a Powder, fourth is an Eyeliner, fifth is a Eyebrow kit, sixth is a Eyeshadow Palette, seventh is a blush colour, eighth is a Mascara, nineth is a Lipliner and tenth is a Lipstick. So that will become your entire ten thing in a Makeup kit. We believe this blog was very helpful for you all.
