Beauty Basics | What are all these products for? Pt 3 | Lip Products



If you are really new to makeup the mounds of different products may be overwhelming. There are so many different skin toned things, and everyone is talking about contouring, tight lining, and highlighting. There are these things all over Pinterest about what order to apply makeup and how- to photos that don’t make sense.


I am not a pro makeup artist. You could say I am a self taught makeup artist. I have been playing with makeup for a few years and I have learned from trial and error, and researching. I am not a beginner anymore but I am not a makeup vet either. I don’t know everything there is to know about makeup but I think I’ve got the basics down. Or at least I know what all the products are for.


There are tons of different products. And those products come in different formulas. And most products come in more than one type of package. We have to start somewhere. So let’s start with a list of the basic lip product names and then go into more detail.

Disclaimer: I AM NOT a professional makeup artist. You could say I am a self taught makeup artist as I have taught myself a lot through trial and error and playing with makeup. I have researched a lot of things on makeup over the past few years. I’m not claiming to know everything but I think I’ve got the basics down and want to make learning them easier for anyone just starting to get into makeup. I am not a newbie anymore but I’m not makeup vet either.
