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! :)
I really wish someone can show me to do my make up.. I just dyed my hair a solid stand out color & I know that if I knew to fix my make up I would look nice.. I wish for someone to give me a make over :)
It seems to be so hard to find makeup when you have light skin! I'm pretty pale, and anything I find seems to be too dark for my skin. Even if I'm using the lightest shade, it always seems like I can see a line there. I really liked CoverGirl's Ready, Set, Gorgeous compact powder foundation, but after using it a while, I realized it made my skin almost look dirty; it was just barely too dark for my skin, which is why it looked that way. It feels like I'll never find anything that won't make me feel the need to constantly look in the mirror and wonder if it looks okay. Eyeshadows are hard too, always too dark or too light. Any suggestions on any of this, from any other pale skinned ladies, or anyone who does makeup professionally?
Concealer and mascara are the most important things! Blush is really great too. I like the maybelline instant age rewind under eye concealer for dark circles. And I like the maybelline fit me concealer for your blemishes. I also like the benefit They're Real mascara!!
I feel like for most people, our first time/years of using makeup were pretty disastrous. I remember 9th grade when I discovered eyeliner's greatness and put a thick line on the top eyelid and all on the waterline everyday. I even did this when my hair was straight but greasy. It was a disaster!!!
