No one really ever taught me how to apply my makeup. I didn’t have a sister. My mother wasn’t that into it. I picked things up along the way, primarily from reading magazines, occasionally from makeup artists at Georgette Klinger after I had a facial or at the makeup counters in department stores. So I can’t say I do everything right. Far from it. And over time, I’m sure there are things that I should be doing differently when I apply my makeup.
Daily Glow has all kinds of useful beauty information. Today, I came across some helpful tips on how to avoid making mistakes when applying makeup that can make you look older. I’m all for that!
Here’s a link to their slide show of Do’s and Don’ts: http://bit.ly/14QzNao
I’ve already tried out a few of their ideas, like using lots of black mascara on my upper lashes and just one coat of brown on the lower to bring attention upward. I don’t think I would’ve thought of that on my own!
