I am going to tell you a secret which makes me feel so lame whenever the subject comes up. I have never used a concealer or a foundation before (except for the professional makeups I got) and I don’t own either myself (phew!)
I am so bad at makeup terms and applications. My makeup bag is so small that I only have a BB cream, a blush, a couple of lipsticks – which are my favorite makeup items – and a mascara. My sister bought me a liquid eyeliner, but I have a long way to go to learn how to apply it properly.
Lately I’ve gained some interest in the makeup world, or at least in the stuff that normal people know by heart. I came across the YouTube channel of Lisa Eldridge who is a beautiful and very well-known makeup artist. I find her tutorials very inspirational. They made me realize that I need at least to know the basics of makeup.
So, I thought I needed to understand the needs of my skin and try a few products from different brands to find the suitable ones for me. Since I do not apply makeup every day, and my skin is pretty smooth, I probably do not need heavy products, but maybe I do need a good concealer.
I definitely need a bit of help here. Let me know which concealers and foundations you are using. Do you have a normal skin type like me? Which brands and product types would you recommend?
