The other day I was going through Pinterest while I'm sure I was watching some reality show and I came across a pin about the top 21 makeup tricks or something to that effect. I tried finding the pin again but couldn't. I didn't pin it, well, because they were things I was already doing and didn't even know they were tricks/tips. Some of the tips were the white shadow on the inside corner of your eye to make you look more awake. Using liquid liner over a pencil liner for more vibrant and stay put color. I just started doing this and it really makes a difference. Using pencil eyebrow liner and then use a powder (I use a eye shadow.) over that. Shoot now I can't remember some of the others. I don't claim to be any sort of make up artist or any good at applying make up. I do like changing it up and tend to not wear the same colors, effects, etc day in day out. Therefore, I sell Mary Kay because a) I like their make up b) I get it a discount and can afford the different/new products that come on the market c) many of my friends and all my sisters use it. So I do it as a service. In every Look Book there are 4 looks. I pull those out and have them in clear page protectors in a binder under my bathroom sink and use as a reference for colors to put together, different methods, etc. One make up tool that I have been wanting for a long time is a lighted make up mirror. When we were on our honeymoon, our resort had one in each of the bathrooms and I loved it. A year and a half later I still haven't purchased one for myself but I'm getting close to it. I want a decent one and the are like $50+. I never wore makeup till college...good God how did I go that long? Now I don't leave home without at least a little on and I am learning more and more as I go through the Mary Kay info, pinterest, and blogs I follow. So a little goes a long way and if you're not a make up girl just remember to smile!!
