I have recently been introduced to the wonderful world of makeup. I was never a girl who loved makeup. In fact, I recall all those times I had to go to a sweet sixteen or wedding and my mom was always telling me to use some lipstick. I guess I always had in my mind that makeup was either for old or ugly people (laughing hard). What a mistake to think like this! Although I still believe that you should start using tons of makeup if you are too young (let’s say before 19 or so). Most girls just need to learn how to work with their natural beauty.
I’ve been working at one of the best Makeup and Cosmetology schools in NYC. And the short time I’ve been there, I’ve learned so much about makeup! Not only makeup, but makeup, skin, beauty, trends…
The one thing I’ve come to admire is the “Natural Makeup”. It’s wonderful. Doesn’t make you look like you have makeup on, it basically enhances your God’s given beauty. A good example:
And this extremely cute makeup to the left is great to use during the day!
Of course, me being a fashion designer, amateur photographer and aspiring makeup artist, love the “Couture Makeup”. This is our chance to make art on pretty faces. But don’t think of Couture Makeup as a runway thing only. This is an example of Couture inspired makeup:
So, what kind of makeup do you like? Do you like it at all? Share your thoughts and opinions via comments. They are always welcome and appreciated. ;)
