Makeup is an amazing accessory. It can command confidence and brighten a face when feeling dull, down or dingy. Of course, makeup is not a solution for everything… but it has its perks. One of the biggest issues is that most women feel they don’t know how to apply it. Makeup can boost our confidence, if we know how to apply it well and still be ourselves.
An easy way to learn how to apply makeup is to go to a makeup store or counter and find a girl who works there whose makeup you admire. This will be a great start to conversation. Have the women teach you and explain what you do not know. Some counters offer classes or a one-hour block to teach you, depending on the place. Some classes may cost money.
If money is a problem with makeup, there are ways to deal with that. First there are tutorial videos on YouTube. Many women post blogs, photos and videos to help other women learn. I would caution woman against buying cheap makeup. If you don’t have much money to spend, make sure you know where to spend the money you have. My suggestion: buy nicer foundation or powder. This will prevent breakouts and will keep your skin healthy, youthful and tight.
Makeup or no makeup, the way you hold and present yourself is really about: your confidence. If you walk into a room with a smile and confidence, you will be set. Whether you wear a lot of makeup or none at all, doesn’t matter in the larger scheme of life, It is our job to discover our confidence and independence apart from makeup. Enjoy who you are without makeup, and enjoy the same person who a little on.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions! If you see someone whose makeup you like, ask her what brand she uses. Go online and search for images. Explore, have fun. Invest in some good makeup brushes. If applying foundation use a round brush or your fingers to provide a more natural look. When using flat brush, the makeup will begin to look cakey and unnatural.
SO, have confidence, ask questions, invest in a high-quality foundation (to protect your face in the long run), use round brushes, and a coat of mascara, and you will beam with joy and be ready to take on the world. These are all small steps to help you discover how you will use makeup in your day-to-day life. One of the most important things is to remember that makeup is an accessory NOT a necessity. So have fun with it! And laugh because your smile is the best kind of makeup created.
