Discovering the Beauty Maven in You
The land of makeup can be a scary world for many. In fact, this even causes some women to never even venture out and experience the wonderful world of makeup. Walk into any drugstore and there are several aisles just filled with products. How can I know what to get? How will I know if it works? There’s not enough time to try every product! The overwhelming feeling can shut us down so that we don’t even bother trying; or worse, it can cause us to keep doing the same thing we’ve been doing for the past ten years.
Do you remember high school? There were the girls that seemed to have it all together. Their eyelashes were fluttery, their cheekbones defined; they knew just the perfect way to use lip liner, lipstick and lip gloss to create lips always ready to be kissed! If you were this girl, God bless you! But most of us were probably not.
No, we were the girls who read teen magazines and wore glitter on our eyes. And our cheeks. And our non-existent cleavage. And our entire bodies. We’d try to replicate looks we’d see on MTV and end up looking like a drag queen or a little girl who broke into her mother’s makeup stash.
When college came, maybe we’d try any product our roommate used and assume it would work for us. (Even if our college roommate had dark skin and dark eyes and we had light skin and blue eyes… what did we know about skin coloring??)
So here we are now. Many of us are still as lost about the world of makeup as we were at fifteen. But don’t give up! I am here to help! If you are trying to figure out your way through scary and overwhelming makeup aisles and counters, let me be your guide. If you are stuck doing the same routine you’ve been doing for years, let me help you find a new one.
Over the next several weeks, months, years (hey, I’m not one to judge how long this process could take), I will help you discover your inner beauty queen so you too can feel confident with what you put on your face. We’ll go over:
- Why you wear what you wear now
- Trends and fads–why they are neither inherently good nor inherently evil
- How what is good for one may not be good for another–and how to tell what’s right for you
- How to highlight your positives.
- As well as some pointers on how to use a number of the popular products on the market now.
So, how about it? You up for the challenge of overcoming all your makeup worries and fears?
