Makeup is a fun and temporary pleasure for lots and lots of women and girls. Some people, however, are brand new to makeup and unsure as to the tips and techniques of certain makeup products and tools. I’m here to help! I’ve been using makeup for almost 10 years, but I don’t consider myself an expert in any way. My usual personal style is on the glamorous end of the spectrum no matter where I’m going, but I love “no-makeup makeup days”, too. Especially the lazy days! I can wing a liquid liner better than I can reversing into a parking space, and I’d love to show you how I do it.
My secrets and style is only a tiny percentage of what you can learn in the colossal world of makeup and I encourage you to master as much as you can. I can do hair (somewhat) and I can dress in (mildly) eye-pleasing attire. My main focus is makeup, though. It’s just what I’m good at in the beauty industry. If you’re an intermediate who is just looking for something new to try out, this page is for you, too.
If you have questions or comments, I would love the pleasure of addressing them when you contact me on my website or in the comment section in the videos. Have fun with your makeup because, after all, the worst that can happen is you have to wipe it off and start over. Don’t forget 1 Peter 3:3-5 where it says, “Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.” You can wear as much makeup as you want, but if you have an ugly spirit or a feral heart for that which is godless, no amount of makeup, jewelry, or the latest fashions can cover it up. God does not look so much at your face and body that He fails to see your heart, ladies. Romans 12:2 instructs Christians to “be transformed by the renewing of your mind” not the renewing of your face and hair or body.
May your foundation match your neck, your concealer be creaseless, and eyeliner sharp enough to cut! Amen.
