Getting started

Anyone that knows me, knows I love makeup and I enjoy doing it. But lots of girls tell me they don’t know how to apply it or they don’t have a lot of makeup, and they just have no idea what to do because they aren’t the girlie girl. Well let me tell you that you don’t have to be a girlie girl to wear makeup, and learning how to apply it is not as hard as you may think. I would love to do these girls makeup and show them what to do but the advice I always give is YouTube. That’s where I first started. I would watch video after video of making tutorials and print out the step by step directions on what and how to apply it. Until eventually I got better and I was self taught which is another reason why makeup is one of my passions. Even if you don’t think you can rock a full face of makeup, you don’t have to! That’s the beauty of it all.. A little goes a long way. And you don’t have to spend a fortune on makeup if you don’t have any. The drug store has a lot of good quality products that you can use just to play around with and learn with. If it helps going to a makeup artist to show you the right way to apply certain things and show you a look you can accomplish everyday without over doing it. If you don’t think sitting home staring at your computer will help you learn than I recommend going to a makeup store. Makeup isn’t scary or super hard to learn. There are lots of technics that I’m still learning because it’s a constant cycle and someone somewhere is always coming up with a new look. Everyone starts somewhere that’s how you learn and get better!
