This is How Much Makeup You Actually Need for Girls Who Have Too Much ...

When you're building your makeup collection or thinking of investing in some more products, it's difficult to know just how much you should spend and what you should buy. Then once you've bought it, you're not sure how much makeup you should apply! So before you buy any product, here's some questions you should ask yourself ...

Thank you for sharing your thoughts!

1 Your Age

If you're young, you only really need minimal makeup. Make the most of your youthful freshness and glow, while you've got it. So don't invest in a huge range of products that you don't need or won't use. Stick to a simple makeup routine and look after your skin (protecting it from the sun is one of the best things you can do).

2 Do You Need to Cover up?

Do you have any skin problems that you need to cover up? If you have problems like acne, dark circles or enlarged pores then that will dictate the kind of products you need to buy. If your skin is good enough not to need concealing, then you'll need a lighter foundation than someone who wants to hide uneven patches.

Contouring has taken the beauty world by storm and it's here to stay. Mastering the art of face sculpting can seem daunting, but it doesn't have to be. Dive into the world of contouring with tips and tricks suggested by the experts, that will make you flaunt your best features. Stay confident, and let your beauty shine through!

3 Day or Evening Look

When do you usually wear makeup? If you only ever wear it on special occasions and when you go out at night, you should focus on stronger colors. If you wear both day and night makeup, you'll need a range of colors and products, or versatile products that you can use for both day and night looks.

4 The Image You Need to Present

Also consider the image you need to project; makeup can be an important part of that image. If you work in a very formal environment, makeup should be professional and subtle, whereas someone in a hip start-up will want a more trendy look. You can experiment more on your free time, but since you spend more time at work you should focus on those products.

5 What Are You Really Going to Use

Experimenting with makeup may be fun, but it's also expensive if you don't like the results of your experiments and don't finish up the products. So ask yourself what do you actually need? What are you really going to use? If you focus your budget on the essential products that you're definitely going to use, you'll save both cash and space.

6 The Size of Your Budget

The size of your budget will also dictate what makeup you should buy. If you're on a limited budget, the one product you should probably spend more on is foundation; everything else can come from budget ranges. You should also only buy the products you'll really use. If you have more spare cash you can afford to experiment more.

7 Appropriate for the Occasion

Finally, when applying your makeup be careful to make it suitable for the occasion. It wouldn't be appropriate to wear heavy makeup at a funeral! You also need to make it last until you have time to touch it up; you don't want your mascara to run or your lipstick to smear while you're dealing with clients.

While it's fun to try out different makeup, it can also be expensive, so it pays to buy the makeup you're going to use. Bear in mind also that makeup has a limited life once opened, so you can't keep it forever. If you could only afford three products, what would you buy?

If i could by only 3 make up products I would by eye brow pencil, concealer and red lipstic

How much do you need? None. How much you want is the question really. If makeup is a hobby, buy as much as you want to. I have a huge collection that makes me happy, and I use a good 90% of the products at least every few months. But do I need it? No of course not. Though good tips for someone just starting out in makeup or someone who only wears it for other people.

I have more than the cover pic as well and I still buy more all of the time..I love eye shadow and blush

Make up isn't a 'need'. It's a want. No person 'needs' makeup.

There is no such thing as too much in my world... Give me ALL the makeup!

The main picture made laugh.... So much makeup!!! When I see girl's makeup, I feel like a newbie. I still only have the makeup my grandma bought me. Hahahaha
