As much as we love makeup, there's always a level of confusion that comes along with it.🧐 You know that feeling when you're on Pinterest and you see something and think "I want that," but you have no idea how to get it? That's what makeup can be like sometimes — except I promise if you follow these rules I'm about to share with you, today's confusion will be nothing but a distant memory.🙁
Setting your goals for makeup is the first step in creating a personalized beauty regimen. The trick is to figure out what you want to look like and what kind of image you want to project.💗
It's easy to get caught up in the excitement of discovering new products and techniques, but before long, you'll be overwhelmed with choices and unable to decide which way to go.🤨
The key is to focus on a few key areas: skin tone, hair colour, and length, face shape, and features.❤️ Once you've got those down, it will be easier for you to decide what products and styles work best for you.
When you're starting out and want to try makeup, it can be hard to know where to start. If you're a beginner, it's important to understand your style of makeup.💄
There are so many different styles of makeup that there's bound to be one that suits you best!🥰 Knowing what kind of makeup you want to use will help you choose products that will work best for your skin tone and type.
If you're new to the world of makeup and still trying to figure out what works for you, here are some things to consider:
❖ What is your skin type?🧐
❖ How do you like your eyes? Do they look more natural or do they have a little bit more definition?
❖ Are you more into bolder looks or more natural?
❖ Are your lips naturally plump or do they need some help?
❖ What about cheekbones? Do yours need some help or do they already look great?
Finding the right makeup products is really important especially if you're just starting out.The most important step in applying makeup is using the right tools to apply it. A good brush or a makeup sponge will help you apply foundation evenly, while a bad one can make your skin look cakey and patchy. Investing in good quality tools is a must — they'll last you much longer.💄🥰
Depending on your skin type, you may choose either liquid, cream or powder products. Make sure to patch test the product before using it all over your face to avoid any harsh reactions to the skin. With makeup, a little goes a long way. Start with a small amount and build it up from there to get an even finish.💗

As wonderful as makeup is, do understand that real skin has texture, bumps, pores, acne marks, fine lines and everything a normal human being has.❤️🩹 The internet has done an excellent job in making filters and therefore increasing our insecurities but remember it’s all virtual and take everything you see on the internet with a grain of salt. Set realistic expectations from your makeup, it is not going to remove pores off of your face with a swipe of powder lol!
Choosing cruelty-free makeup brands is one of the best ways to reduce your impact on the environment.Just to make sure you know the difference, Cruelty-free means that the product was developed without any tests on animals, while vegan means that the product does not include any animal-derived ingredients.
