Make-up review

By Jennifer Tellez

Girls love to explore new things. Generations have started their “growing up” at a young age. For little girls they have those small makeup kits that are about $3. These kids are just the cutest things. As these young girls start becoming teenagers, they see all these artists and famous people with the “flawless” faces. We can all agree that makeup is just to boost your confidence a bit. Everyone is beautiful just the way they are, and a face makeover just structures your face more.

But if a girl really wants to play around with makeup, this is where you start. I started watching YouTube videos because you get a sense of all these different opinions, and you’ll figure out what products will work well with your skin. Everyone’s skin is either oily or dry, but some people have both. You have to have healthy skin in order to figure out what other skin care and what foundation, primer, and concealer to use.  There are different ways to do makeup. You can go all out and contour with the highlight and blush or you can just do a thin layer of foundation with some mascara, bronzer and blush. It’s all up to what makes you feel comfortable.  

There are countless amounts of makeup styles a girl can do. The best thing to do is to buy a cheap palette and cheap foundation from any store that’s not Sephora or Ulta. I started my makeup collection from Elf and this brand is actually the best to start with because it’s cheap, yet it gives you a feel for what blends better with your face. When getting palettes, you don’t want something that’s going to look patchy or cakey on your face, There are different products that help to prevent this. These products are also very expensive, so buy just the mini sizes before going all out.

If you’re a girl who wants to do your makeup everyday, take good care of your skin! Drink water and cleanse your face before and after you put on makeup. You’d notice on girls who do their makeup everyday that once they take it off, their face is red and its broken out; this happens because they don’t use the right makeup removal wipes or they don’t cleanse their face often. You can always try different products and figure out what’s best for you.

Don’t be afraid to try something new. If makeup is something you want to mess around with and do, go for it, Watch YouTube videos and start small before spending $60 on a palette that you don’t know will work for you.
