Makeup Product List

Updated on April 3, 2016


In todays date makeup is a huge thing on the market. There has been created so many types of products and solutions it may be hard to keep up. Keeping a control over what a highlighter is or where to apply it is not easy. Here I have listed all the must-know makeupproducts, with a guide on how it works and where to apply.

PS: Everything is also listed in the order you would apply them in. Still it´s important to remember that liquids and cream (on the skin/base) goes before any dry products like powder and such.
