Most girls learn how to do their makeup in junior high or high school, maybe even earlier?! I discovered eyeliner in like 8th or 9th grade. My friend Dana showed me how to put it on and that was seriously the extent of my makeup application for a long time. I would just wear black eyeliner. LOL I know every girl reading this is like WTF? I always strayed away from learning more about makeup because it was just overwhelming and kind of foreign. But, during this year I’ve made a conscious effort to learn more about this crazy thing we call makeup. I put it on my list of “24 things to do while I’m 24.” I’ve been buying better foundation, pinning like a crazy lady on my Pinterest page, and watching tons of tutorials (thanks YouTube!)
So, I guess the overall idea or moral behind this is not to be afraid of learning something new, even if it’s completely foreign and it doesn’t matter how old you are. Everyone starts somewhere and no one was born an expert. And the great thing about “this day and age” is that you don’t have to feel weird about asking someone for help you can just Google it! There are tutorials for everything on the internet so turn the TV off and go learn something because being smart is the sexy!
Here’s the products I use regularly and a pic of me right after applying my makeup.
