Makeup for Beginners

Makeup for Beginners

At some point all of us have been beginners. Not knowing a single thing about make-up. Trying to scramble to find every tip and trick in the book. That’s all good and great, but it can also be a lot to take in. Make-up is fun and creative. It should feel like that when you’re starting out. The sucky thing about being a beginner is that you don’t know what to do and what not to do. So, here is some make-up advice that every beginner should know as well as benefit from as they continue this journey.
Make-up is personal, beauty is personal
There are many tutorials out there. But at some point, some beginners realize that not everything will apply to them. A tip or trick for a lighter skinned girl may not work for a darker skinned girl. And that’s okay. Make-up is a personal experience. It must be catered to your needs and skin type. Beauty is more so about the person you see in the mirror than the ones you see on a screen.
Drug store can be as good as luxury
As a beginner in make-up, you will see these two words: drug store & luxury. Drug store is any make-up found in well, drugstores. So, Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, etc. Then luxury is high end make-up brands that will only be found at Macys, Sephora, Ulta, etc. Usually, luxury brands are known for being the best quality. But really, sometimes drugstores have way better quality than luxury. Just because it cost more, doesn’t mean it works better. Especially, as a beginner, you don’t want to go splurging your money on things just because of its name. Be mindful and try samples first. You do not want to throw away money so start small.
Know your basics
By basics, I mean the basic knowledge of what you need. Some basics to know is what skin type you are. What your undertone is. Knowing the shape of your face. All these things will help smooth the process of buying make-up. The worst part of beginning your makeup journey is wasting your money on things you don’t need. Sometimes we buy a shade too light or too dark. Or the wrong primer for your skin type. It’s best to figure out all these characteristics before spending any money. Your bank account will thank you in the long run.
Buy what you like
So much of beauty is trends upon trends. And most people only buy the trends. But if you don’t like the product then you wasted your money. If you like a certain product, but the general population doesn’t. That’s okay. Not everyone has the same skin color, type, or likes. Neither will there be the same preferences. A great rule of thumb to remember is to buy what you like. It doesn’t matter if it’s not popular. Set or create your own trends. That’s the real beauty of makeup, the creativity…and it’s often unique to the individual.
With this advice, I hope your beginner phase won’t be too hard. Make-up is fun! Jump in and get in where you fit in. Oh, and remember, you can watch all the videos you want day after day, but as always, practice makes perfect!
