You can also go back and reread certain sections over as many times as you wish.
2. Watch Makeup Tutorials
Makeup tutorial videos can be very helpful in learning new makeup techniques. One great thing about this option is that you can see exactly how they achieve a certain result. You can also back up and watch certain parts of a video over and over as you need to.

Having a makeover is always fun; it’s also a great way to learn a new technique. Many stores offer free makeovers to their customers and you could even score some free samples or coupons for their products.

Anyone who’s truly amazing with makeup application is usually somewhat passionate about it and would love to share that passion with others.

Magazines can offer you some guidance on makeup application techniques. There’re many articles that give you step by step advice on how to wear a certain look. Also, you may just see a picture of someone’s makeup that you love. From there, you could try to recreate the look. It’s inspiring to see new makeup looks.
