Have you ever watched makeup vloggers? Basically, makeup vloggers post tutorials and their favorite products on Youtube. Some of them are total crap, some are entertaining, and the rest are sheer genius. I’d consider myself to be pretty well versed on makeup – whether it’s an application technique or a brand, I know a fair amount about makeup. But watching makeup vloggers has taught me so much more! Specifically, I’ve learned how to blend shades together and accentuate my facial features in the most flattering way.
Here’s my all time favorite makeup blogger, Alli! Check out her Youtube channel and some of her videos. I love how she blends color and favors natural and fresh looks. I got some makeup palettes and a brush set for Christmas and I’ve been putting them to good use! I also took some cues from her makeup organization videos and got my makeup all sorted out in acrylic trays from The Container Store.
I’ve found the best way to learn how to do makeup is to practice! You can read and watch techniques, but the only way you’ll really get the hang of it is to try. You know I’ve never grown out of playing dress up, and I’m pretty sure I’ll never grow out of playing in makeup. Have fun and learn something new by trial and error.
And I’ll leave you with my favorite tutorial from Alli for a great every day look:
