I have never been one to use a lot of make-up. I generally don't know how to use a lot of the new make-up tools today and I don't like complicated things. I stick to mascara, eye shadow, and a little lip gloss.
If you feel as though you fail at doing your make up like I do, all you need to do is go onto youtube and type in make up tutorials, you can find a large amount of people/women talking about which foundation is best for which skin types, how to do the perfect contouring and even tutorials on exotic, colourful or natural/smokey eyeshadow... the limits are endless!
If you want to get rid of blemishes, don't try to cover it up! Foundation makes it worse and causes breakouts. When applying eyeliner, do not apply fully under the bottom of the eyes. This makes eyes appear smaller. Youtube has great tutorials!
I know how to put on foundation, mascara and lip stick. anything else i need serious help with self help is not going to help i need an actually person that can come to my house and do my makeup. How spoiled i would be
I used to go on Youtube for makeup tutorials.. I must say, they helped a lot when I hadn't a clue what to do. Now I just experiment... although not very much since I generally keep to a basic everyday routine but on special occasions I might look up some tutorial and do my own version of it.. it's quite fun really ;)
I don't know if you could class this as a tip or not but I love flicking through catalogues and magazines and looking at the models in it to get makeup ideas. I will rip the pages out to keep and then when I want to put my makeup on I will look at all the pages to see which one I like best for that day. Magazines that sell eye makeup tend to be best as there are always close ups of the eyes so you can see in good detail! :)
