Evening Tips

This year has probably had the most changes than any other year before it. Graduating high school, starting college, saying goodbyes and welcoming many more hellos. It was a bit overwhelming but I could not have asked for a better year. So many exciting things happened and my friends and I were free. The summer was spent outside everyday at a job I loved and surrounded by amazing people. I probably will never have more of a carefree year than this. Next I will have to hold responsibilities with disappearing summers and career driven choices. Nevertheless, I am always looking forward to the next years and what they hold! 2013 is almost over and the right way to end it is with a gorgeous and smiling face that you can enter the new year with. To make sure it can last all night long check out these tips which are some of my favorite to know on nights like these.

Teaching vs. Tools: Makeup

ac1321e387000caf8e39005af8167b31Considering the majority of my makeup knowledge has come from youtube and clippings of magazines I had to learn a lot about the whole process through trial and error. But what I have learned are the powers of brushes! When you see anyone with a perfect face of makeup a lot of it is contributed to technique. That is why they have school and so many tutorials of what to do but more importantly HOW to do it. Brushes provide angles and strokes that you cannot just make by swiping a regular brush everywhere. Each brush has a special purpose and when used right leave your with a flawless face. You do not need need to invest a small fortune into these tools. But make sure that you use the right shapes for the right purpose. I personally have a mix of brands from EcoTools and Bare Minerals.

The biggest thing to remember is to keep your brushes clean!! You do not want to carry around bacteria from your face into your brushes and reapply them every time. You don’t need to be a makeup artist to gain a good look, you just need the right tools.
