Makeup Tutorial: My Everyday Makeup

Ok so I am no makeup pro but I have been wearing it since probably the 5th grade. I really feel like doing your makeup is a lot like painting a picture. And I have always been an artsy type of person which is probably why I love makeup so much. It's really all about creating highlights and casting shadows in all of the most flattering places. It can take time to really perfect a technique but once you have learned what looks good on you, you're all set.

I have had a few people email me asking how I do my makeup so I put together this little tutorial. Like I said, I am not a professional but I have spent a ton of time over the last decade or so trying to come up with the perfect mixture to make me the best "me". And honestly it's an ever evolving process but I am hoping this will give you all a good overview of what I do and eventually I can break this all down into a more detailed tutorial if you ladies would like.

    1. Thank you!! Let me know what you think after you try them!

  5. Wow! I don't really wear make up (really, no foundation, powder or mascara even!), just eye shadow and eyeliner for a night out...maybe some lipstick! So I am always in awe of people who take the artistry of makeup and create these beautiful looks. Great look for the every day. Super pretty! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you so much, Amber! I wish I didn't "need" the makeup or I would probably just do the same as you but I feel so self conscious about those dark spots. I need to get that taken care of now that I am not nursing.

  6. Thank you for linking up - this was super helpful, I've never really known how to put all of that on. Great post!
