Contouring, Brushes, Foundation. Oh My! Learning to Wear Makeup


They say that it's never to late to learn something new, so I've decided that it's about time for me to learn how to apply makeup. I'm not talking about a full Kim Kardashian-esque full face, I'm talking about a natural look that compliments my features and is simple enough to wear every day. So here are some tips that I've found to be useful while I am learning to apply my own natural looking makeup.



The Basics

If you're new to makeup, here are the basic things you should have:
  • A foundation: if you're skin is is prone to breakouts or you have acne scars then you'd need something heavier. If your skin is in good condition, you can try a BB cream, which is a light foundation and moisturizer. 
  • Concealer: If you struggle with dark under eye circles like I do, a concealer can be used to brighten and cover those dark spots. Get a basic liquid/stick concealer to match your skin tone. 
  • Mascara: Make your eyelashes pop! 
  • Lip Moisturizer: I use my EOS lip balm every day, it's amazing! 
  • Lipstick: You can opt for a neutral color or something a little more bold like a red or a pink color. Even on the days where I don't wear makeup, I love to wear a nice pink lipstick. 
  • Basic eyeshadow palette: Palettes are great for when you want to try out new colors. Make sure your palette includes neutral tones, as they can be used every day. 

Start Small and Do Your Research!!

Start by doing some research! There are different skin tones and undertones such as warm, cool, or neutral. Figure yours out by reading this article. Learning your tone can help you pick the best colors for your complexion.

Start small - try experimenting with lower end or drugstore products. Brands like Maybelline, CoverGirl, ELF, Milani, L'Oreal, and Rimmel, are affordable and great to try out. Learn to apply your makeup with the cheaper options, so if you end up not liking your makeup the first few times you try it out you won't be at a total loss. I recently purchased a yellow lipstick for $4 and ended up hating it. Throwing that $4 lipstick in the trash wasn't as hard as throwing away a $20 one.

You don't have to get everything in one trip. Shop around, look for your correct colors, look for great deals, build up your collection slowly.

Find Inspiration

I find inspiration from everywhere. Makeup brands and beauty blogger's Instagram accounts, YouTube Videos, Pinterest, etc. Check out my Makeup 101 Pinterest board for some useful resources!

Everyone Has To Start Somewhere

We all make mistakes. We've all picked out the wrong foundation color once. We've all picked a lipstick color that makes us look crazy. It's just part of the process, don't let it discourage you. With practice makes perfect, so keep trying!
