My Capsule Makeup Collection

by Mansi

I’ve always had this love-hate relationship with makeup. I like to wear makeup while going out or for special occasions. But I also love being bare-faced for the rest of the time.

Being a homemaker, I don’t need plenty of makeup. I’ll be honest, I feel more classy and confident with simpler makeup. I choose to focus on skincare more than makeup.

My personalized makeup style is even skin, kohled eyes, well-groomed eyebrows, and Lipsticks. I’m not a big fan of foundations, eyeshadows, blushes and other makeup products. Fact is, I never feel the need to apply so many things.

Today I’m laying my favorite products that I use every day as well as for special occasions. I’ve split the makeup into two sections:


Colorbar Perfect Match Compact Powder (001 Classic Ivory):

This is my HG product. It’s enriched with hyaluronic acid and Vitamin E. It has a very creamy texture which blends into the skin giving a velvety finish. I love to use this compact with Colorbar BB Cream as a base instead of a foundation (for special occasions).

Lakme Eyebrow Pencil:

It’s a really nice and useful everyday product. Well-groomed eyebrows give your face a polished look. I apply the pencil and brush it with a brow brush to avoid harsh lines.

Plum NaturStudio All-Day-Wear Kohl Kajal (Black):

This is The Best kohl I have used so far. I like to tight-line my eyes for an everyday look. I use this kohl for both upper and lower waterline. This one is Creamy & applies smoothly on the upper lash line as well.


Revlon matte balm – Sultry (Mauve + Rosy Pink Nude).



Colorbar Perfect Match BB Cream (001 Vanilla Creme):

This is my favorite product. The shade 001 Vanilla Creme has a warm undertone which suits my skin perfectly. The product sinks into the skin so well giving a natural look.

Maybelline New York Fit Me Concealer (20 Sand):

It’s a medium coverage concealer which blends easily. The shade 20 sand works as a highlighting concealer for my medium skin tone.

Colorbar Perfect Match Compact Powder (001 Classic Ivory):

As mentioned earlier in this post.


Maybelline New York The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette:

This is an impulse purchase from the time I was an insane shopaholic. As I told earlier, I don’t like to wear eye-shadows, this was of no use to me. But I rethought of using the dark brown shade from the palette for the eyebrows. I use it with an angled brush and it just works well.

Maybelline New York Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner (Black):

The kohled eyes is a makeup necessity for me and this is my beloved product. It is good for beginners like me, learning to apply eyeliner, for more controlled application. I use it with the vega eyeliner brush to draw a thin line. Along with this, I use Plum kohl kajal for the lower lashline.

Maybelline HyperCurl volume express Mascara (Very Black):

It’s a great budget-buy mascara. It is longlasting, waterproof, lightweight and importantly it gets removed quickly even with cleansing lotion.

These three products complete my eye-makeup. I love the look of my eyes only with these three products.

For Lips:

Lipstick is a must-have product for me. With a minimalist approach, I own only 5 and those are:-

1. Maybelline Colorsensational Creamy Matte Lipstick – Touch Of Spice (Pink Nude):

It’s such a beautiful everyday lip color. It’s a My Lips But Butter Shade for me. I love how creamy and comfortable these lipsticks are.

2. Nyx Lip Lingerie – Exotic (Peachy Nude):

The Best peachy nude lip shade I’ve ever used. This is my most cherished lip color.

3. Sugar It’s Pout Time! Vivid Lipstick – Breaking Bare (Mauve Pink Nude):

It’s very pretty mauve pink color, looks great with black, white and teal/turquoise colored outfits.

4. Revlon matte balm – Sultry (Mauve + Rosy Pink Nude):

A beautiful rosy mauve pink color which makes you look nice and fresh instantly. Great for a day time look.

5. Maybelline Colorsensational Creamy Matte Lipstick – Pink My Red (Pinky Red):

Very pretty color for a little bright or festive look. I bought it as a substitute for red and orange lipsticks.

Since we wear a variety of colors in India, even with a minimalist approach, I require these 5 shades of lipsticks in my makeup kit. All of them are my favorite shades. They go pretty good with all my outfits.

As you see, I am more of a Neutral/Nude/Muted lip color person. But I also prefer lipsticks which has some brightening effect.

As a minimalist, I’m very selective and make purchases after thorough research. If you’re from India, you’ll notice most of the makeup products, especially lipsticks are recommended by Ankita from Corallista. She’s very professional. I’ve been able to find better products with her recommendations. She’s very clear and accurate in her product descriptions. You can check out her channel here: Corallista Youtube Channel and Blog.

Final Words:

These are the only products that I own and truly love to use. My capsule makeup kit is tailor-made to my needs, style, and preferences. Everything fits comfortably into one pouch.

Being a minimalist at heart, I avoid buying needless products. This saves me a lot of money, time and space.

I hope this article will help you create your own capsule makeup kit. Thank you for reading and please share with me – what’s in your Capsule makeup collection?
