HOW TO APPLY YOUR MAKEUP AND CONCEALER FOR BEGINNERS:101 BACK TO THE MAKEUP BASICS


 I created this post to assist make-up beginners in applying their foundation. I do believe the key to mastering any makeup-look starts with your technique and having a firm understanding of the basics. Learning how to apply your foundation can be overwhelming when you are just starting out. When I first started wearing makeup; I did not wear foundation. I shaded in my eyebrows and wore eye liner. I also sported a horrific lip trend, the infamous black eyeliner coupled with Vaseline. Yes, this is true....I was completely oblivious to how crazy I looked at the time. Give me a break. I was a pre-teen and...... "everyone was doing it!"

It took me a while to get past my teenage make-up offenders. It wasn't until I was 25 that I really learned the role that foundation and concealer played in a full face make-up look. However, I was still treading thin ice in the make-up DON'T S group home. It wasn't until I was 28 that I really learned how to get the best use out of my foundation and concealer. I attribute most of my education to the following:
  1. LONG HOURS OF STALKING YOUTUBE BEAUTY GURUS/INFLUENCERS
  2. WATCHING MY FRIEND, SHINNICE, APPLY HER MAKEUP EVERYTIME WE GOT  PREPARED TO HAVE A NIGHT OUT ON THE TOWN. (WHICH BY THE WAY IS STILL ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS TO DO WHEN I'M IN HER PRESENCE)
  3. PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE
  4. TRIAL AND ERROR WITH DIFFERENT MAKE-UP BRANDS ( THIS IS HOW YOU LEARN WHAT WORKS THE BEST FOR YOUR SKIN AND COMPLEXION)

There is so much to learn about make-up and I am still learning as the days go by. But, I am totally up for the challenge.I have decided to create a Beginners Make-up Series. I want this series to fill in any gaps that you may have about the basic techniques of make-up application. I hope that my latest post and video inspires you to feel more confident when applying your foundation.
