About Face.

The overdue make up post that I've promised many of you! My everyday make up routine is pretty simple and takes very little time to put on. I don't like to overwhelm my skin with too many products since that usually leads to unnecessary breakouts for me. Christopher Bailey of Burberry says,"Keep it simple and basic, beacause as with fashion, you need classics that you can rely on." Make up application should be fun and enjoyable. It does require some sort of practice and experimentation with different kinds of products. Once you find what works best for you, everything will get a whole lot easier. Whether you are going for a subtle daytime or a dramatic night look, make up should always enhance your natural beauty. As far as make up how to's, I love reading the beauty tips in Allure and various fashion magazines. There are also many informative/instructional videos that features professional experts on their online sites as well.
