So this Wednesday, I turned the grand old age of 24! After a couple of minutes of an (oh my god where is life heading) panic, I thought I would share with you some of the things I learned about make up over the years.
Drink lots of water
- You knew this one was coming.
Start a Skincare Routine
- My mama taught me to look after my skin and tried to get me a routine from a young age.
Only use heavy foundation if and when your skin needs it.
-I didn't own a foundation until I was 20.
Always Carry a red lipstick in your bag. -
Even when I wear a nude lipstick I have a red one in my bag, hey a girl has to have options.
Tame those brows -
If I could, I would tell my teenage self this, makes a big difference.
Embrace Colour -
The more interested I have become in make up the more I have liked venturing in to different colours
Less is more
- Show off some of your natural skin, on the daily basis use make up to simple enhance your already beautiful face.
Go make up free one day a week -
I am glad I didn't wear make up from a young age. It has allowed me to be more confident and happy in my skin.
Invest in a good make up brushes -
They make such a big difference.
Listen to your skin -
I found once I starting realising my skin type, the look I like on skin, the better the make up looks and your over all look, looks and feels.
Have fun -
Make up suppose to be fun so have fun with it.
This is just a snippet of some of the things I learnt about myself and my make up journey over the years. It was fun thinking about this because at the time I hardly realise these lessons! Hope you all enjoyed reading this and didn't mind something a bit different.
What make up lessons have you learnt?
