Make-up is the hardest topic for me learn and harder still to write. It’s not that I don’t use make-up – I do, everyday, minimally. But it’s not an art that can be grasp through mere readings or watching or thinking. Applying make-up beautifully is an art that requires experience through practice, constant application and reviews or self-analysis.
In my quest to improve my personal make-up skills, I came across these makeup video tutorials which I think are awesome. If you’re quite new to the art of makeup, I hope you’ll find them as useful as I do.
