If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed about learning to wear makeup, no worries! You can easily learn to wear it correctly. In no time at all, you’ll have the confidence to wear your new look anywhere. These simple little tips are all the help you need.

1 Remember Eyebrows Are the Frame to the Face

This’s a very important point to remember. Your eyebrows are the frame for your whole face. If you neglect them, your whole face can look a little off. Some women need more work than others when it comes to eyebrows. Usually blondes and women with thin eyebrows need to do more work in this area. There’re many options you can choose when it comes to shaping your eyebrows. I prefer to fill mine in with pencil but you can always go for powder, liquid or wax formulas.

2 Start with a Small Collection then Build Bigger

When you’re just beginning to wear makeup, start small and build from there. There’s no need to spend a lot of money at first. You aren’t sure what you like or what feels flattering to you. Start with a few products such as concealer, powder, mascara and lip gloss and then build from there. You don’t want to invest in products that’re going to feel too advanced to handle at first.

3 Don’t Panic if There’s a Small Mistake

Here’s a little secret, girls. We all make mistakes when doing our makeup, even when we’ve been doing it for years! So don’t panic if you see your mascara going off a tiny bit or your concealer doesn’t completely cover a blemish. There’s a simple fix for almost any makeup mistake. For example, you can always dab mascara bobbles off with a q-tip or add a bit more concealer.

4 Go for a Buildable Look

Most makeup is very buildable. Start with a small amount and then build up. This works with foundation, eyeshadow, blush, eyeliner, lipstick and every other makeup. Take your time and take a step back every few minutes to gauge how your look is progressing. This strategy allows you to get your look just right.

5 Notice the Mistakes from Others

The more you wear makeup, the more you’re going to notice makeup looks you don’t like on others. It may be your personal preference or it could be true makeup mistakes. It’s good to observe how others do their makeup to help yourself be aware of what to avoid. No one wants their foundation to look like a mask or their eye shadow to look harshly unblended. You can also observe what beautiful, flawless makeup looks like on others, as well.

6 Don’t Neglect Cleanup Duty

There’s usually a some cleanup involved every time you wear makeup. Don’t be discouraged by a little fall out. Expect to always need to give your makeup a final look before you head out the door. Most cleanup can easily be done with a swipe of powder or a final blending. This little step is one of the most important in the whole process.

7 Don’t Let Fear Hold You Back

When it comes to makeup, we’ve each got our own unique style. Don’t try to deny yours! Let yourself experiment and don’t give in to fear. Whether it’s a bold lip or false lashes, give it a try. It’s only makeup; you can always try a different look tomorrow.

These’re some tips to makeup basics. What types of makeup seems confusing to you? I’d love to hear from you!
