Soooo not all of us are makeup artists. Some of us have to learn through trial and error but the key word is LEARN! Don’t be afraid to try different products or experiment with different colors! Also take advantage of the consultants there at the stores. They are paid to be knowledgeable of their products. Now wait a minute…there is a flip side. Pay attention to how their makeup is done! Trust I will NOT be asking for your advice if your foundation is 10 shades lighter than your natural skin tone! Eeeek!
