New Series | Makeup for Absolute Beginners
If you didn't grow up playing in your mother's makeup or tearing out cool makeup looks and taping them to your bedroom walls, you're probably more than mystified on how to start or go about it. Let me preface this by saying there are no rules to makeup. You can wear as little or as much as you like. There is no right or wrong way to apply eye shadows or foundations. And women of color can wear any color we darn well please. Beauty is subjective and is in the eye of the beholder.
There are a couple things to consider before starting your new makeup regimen. Are you looking for a polished, professional image? Or are you seeking a glamorous, sexy one? Do you prefer the natural look or makeup that shows as makeup? Which features do you want to emphasize? How much time in the morning do you have to put towards applying makeup?
In this series I will give detailed posts on how start a makeup regimen based off of the products I know and use. Please keep in mind that there are tons and tons of products available and that its up to you to tailor your regimen to fit you. Take a look at some of my older posts below to get a jump start on your journey!
