Growing up I was pretty much the opposite of what I am now especially when it came to makeup.  My go-to makeup usually consisted of Chapstick. However, once I hit middle school I started to take more of an interest in makeup.  Some of my favorite brands included wet n’ wild and Bonne Bell.   Since that time, I have added more items and techniques.   Find out what I have learned below.


Wearing Lipstick & Finding the Right Shade

Until recently I was more of a lip balm and lip gloss girl.  However, through my blog, I have been to able try different lipsticks and to find which shades work for my skin tone.  When it comes to lipstick brands I usually go towards Avon & Maybelline.

Blending is Your Friend

I am still learning when it comes to concealers, but thanks to watching and reading of blogs of makeup pros (i.e. Makeup Artists, Beauty Bloggers and more.) I am getting better.   There is still room for improvements and luckily there are brands like Fenty Beauty with a wider range of shades.

Everything isn’t for Everybody

It can be a little overwhelming with the latest makeup trends. However, I realize there are just some trends that I know aren’t for me. Also, I know there are some products that will not work for me due to my sensitive skin.

I wouldn’t call myself a makeup pro, but I do have a better knowledge for occasions when I am looking to switch up my usual look.
