Well the simple answer to all of these questions is honestly its just trial and error. Its a good idea to search around and learn a little more about your skin tone and eye color. If you need help with your skin tone you can check out my blog post HERE on how to find the perfect lip shade, as it will direct you to your proper skin tone. If you have Brown eyes like I do, you can also check out my post on eyeshadows for brown eyes HERE. Today I am going to go over the basics, so you will feel more comfortable trying things out.
1.Reign it in:
2. Don't Rush:
Moisturizer, Primer, and Foundation all take time to sink into the skin. This means that you have to let them dry before moving onto the next step, it can take up to 15 minutes for all 3. So just make sure you have enough time before you need to get to where your going. Mistakes happen all the time and the surest way to avoid or fix them is to have a few extra minutes.
3. Build up to it:
4. Be Prepared:
5. Have Faith in Yourself:

You need to have faith in your ability. With time and patience you will be able to pull off the hardest makeup looks. Never think that you can't do it. I promise you can. As I said before none of us were born knowing how to do our make up and all of us had to learn. How long it takes is just a guessing game, some of us started playing with make up early and others not until after high school. Over time you will learn how well an eyeshadow blends and how much to add to get the desired look.
You tube videos will be your ultimate road companion during this trip. You can find videos on everything. From how to use foundation to applying mascara. You can pretty much figure out how much of a product to use to get your desired look and most youtubers will tell you how they feel that product does. If you have a question about anything concerning makeup, you can bet there is already a video about it. Youtube is the best tool you can have when learning a new makeup routine weather you are new to makeup or not.
