beginners: this is how to upgrade your all in one makeup kit

the word on the street is that you’re no longer a makeup beginner, thanks to the subtl all in one makeup kit and our comprehensive blog tutorials. but with all your new skills and fun stackable makeup, you might have found yourself in a weird limbo. perhaps you're unsure how to elevate your use of the subtl beauty all in one makeup kit to enhance your beauty (and travel) expertise. 

we understand this dilemma 100%. that’s why we offer many travel makeup options and blogs tailored for every milestone of your beauty journey. here are ways to upgrade your all in one makeup kit to take it and you to the next level, along with some helpful blogs:

upgrade your all in one makeup kit with an eyeshadow duo

one of the easiest ways to bring freshness to your subtl beauty all in one makeup kit is by staking an eyeshadow duo. with the rise of minimalism, a 40-shade palette isn’t ideal anymore, especially for traveling beauty beginners. opting for the convenience of an eyeshadow duo means you’ll be met with pre-curated complimentary tones that are velvety smooth and ready to go.

flexible to use as both a subtle or bold statement, the subtl eyeshadow duos come in nine unique pans that are carefully made to compliment any outfit, outing, or travel destination. not only that but they’re formulated to last all day, universally flattering, and crease-proof. spoiler: cloud nine, our newest duo, features a a soft, peachy pink matte and a cohesive shimmer. cute!

here are a few subtl beauty reviews on our eyeshadow duos from real makeup enthusiasts just like you:

  • “i like the new cloud nine eyeshadow duo. i have fair skin, and this is like a nude color for me but with some shimmer. great product!” - stacy r.
  • “i love all the eyeshadow duo colors i have gotten so far. they stay all day with no creasing or fading.” - rene richard t.
  • "i have a couple of eyeshadows duos, and they are one of my favorite things out of all the products! they do look dark in the pan, but when you put them on, they’re the perfect amount of color. not too light, not too dark – just perfection! i get about 10 hours of wear before they start fading.” - kayla p.

upgrade your all in one makeup kit with a cream highlighter

if you’re a makeup beginner that has only tried our starter stak all in one makeup kit, you likely haven’t gotten to experience the ultimate natural glow, aka our cream highlighter. while your all in one makeup kit came with a powder highlighter, sometimes life calls for a cream formulation, like when your skin is feeling the dry winter blues or you’re going for a dewy, no makeup look.

either way, you’ll be able to choose from three versatile shades that are creamy, lightweight, crease-free, and easy to blend. beginners, get this: each subtl beauty cream highlighter is formulated with mica, a natural mineral found on earth that adds a shimmering luminescence to makeup. it reflects light, enhancing the appearance of your highlighter by adding a subtle glow. 

here are a few subtl beauty reviews on our cream highlighter from real makeup enthusiasts just like you:

  • “this highlighter is the perfect touch to finish my makeup look. it leaves my face looking fresh and hydrated without looking like a disco ball. i remember the days when i would coat my face in glitter (because honestly, the sparkles are fun), but since i am long past my teen years, i can’t pull that look off anymore. this is sophisticated and subtle and my new favorite step in my makeup!” - lindsey f.
  • “i love the cream highlighter and all the elements of my stak. the makeup is beautiful, it feels great on my skin, and it's so easy to throw into my purse for touch-ups. i use it every day. it isn’t heavy but it looks great on. i couldn’t be happier and love my subtl stak.” - jennifer s.
  • “i love this product. easy to use. glides on super smooth. gorgeous on the skin. feels like nothing is there.” - lindsey s.

upgrade your all in one makeup kit with a new lip & cheek

did you get the subtl lip and cheek tint in shade terracotta tour guide with your beginner-friendly all in one makeup kit? we chose it as a starter stak must-have because it’s the perfect universal shade for every skin tone and makeup look under the sun. while terracotta tour guide is one of our best-selling favorites, we also have seven other stunning colors to add to your subtl stak.

from hibiscus highway to elderberry escapade, each lip and cheek tint offers an effortless application with its creamy, decadent texture. because we care about your skin, we jazzed up its formulation by adding good-for-you ingredients like jojoba oil and shea butter; this dynamic duo not only hydrates and nourishes your skin, but is also anti-inflammatory and softening.

here are a few subtl beauty reviews on our lip and cheek tint from real makeup enthusiasts just like you:

  • “i normally don’t like cream blushes, but these are easy to use; basically foolproof. i have 5 different colors. they’re great as lip color, as well. i use the lip balm over it for added hydration. the color is very buildable, and i am impressed with the staying power.” - jamie
  • “i'm a die-hard charlotte tillbury pillow talk fan, but tried elderberry escapade on a whim. omg, i love, love, love it! and, it's so hydrating and makes my lips look even plumper!” - dr. ek. 
  • “i've never used a cream blush before but this is life changing! way easier to blend and it doesn't look caked on like powder can look. i'm never going back!” - adele s.

try to make keeping lip balm in your all in one makeup kit a habit. want to know why? having a good quality lip balm with you ensures continuous hydration, protection from environmental factors, and healing for dry or chapped lips. they also enhance your lips’ appearance and provide a smooth base for makeup, making it the essential for maintaining healthy lips on the go.

it’s also worth mentioning that traveling can cause dry lips. things like destination altitude, dehydration, and the notoriously dry environment of airplane cabins all play a role. because everyone needs lip balm and not just beginners – we made ours universal and ultra-nourishing by packing it with skin-loving ingredients like jojoba oil and shea butter (just like our lip and cheek tints).

here are a few subtl beauty reviews on our lip balm from real makeup enthusiasts just like you:

  • “i love the freshness of this lip balm. i apply it multiple times a day.” - rene
  • “this lip balm is fantastic. the unscented original is perfect for days when you don’t want conflicting scents and flavors (hello wine tasting!). the mint, and especially the new zestination coco, are delightful and refreshing for a quick pick me up at work. my lips are so happy and much less dry than before!” - lindsey f.
  • “i love the lip balm; it's easy to apply and makes my lips very soft and moist.” - deborah g.
