    I'm a bit of tomboy (I like to be girly

    sometimes) and I can do my makeup very well I just don't like applying it on everyday. And everyone always ask me who does it when i wear some...and surprised when I say me, so thank you YouTube for teach me how to apply makeup like semi-pro!

    For me, makeup is either go big

    or just don't go at all. I love playing with ridiculous colors. I received the Urban Decay Electric Palette as a gift and I'm obsessed with it!

    Learning From My Sister

    Once I started to regularly wear feminine undergarments, my sister, 1-year-older than me, suggested I try makeup, too. I had been watching her, my mom, and my aunt for some time, so the suggestion was something I had been thinking of. She offered to help me since she felt me...

    I've loved makeup, ever

    since I was about 12-13. I started out with eyeliner/mascara, moving into high school if tried out brows and lipgloss. Now here I am. Top is about 3-4 years ago, bottom is now. Practice helps. A lot. I still have a lot to learn, but I'm pretty damn proud of myself for not...

    Oh my gosh I found this amazing company

    I love makeup, but I love drug store finds a

    bit more than high end. The only thing I'd probably buy high end is foundation since surprisingly drug store doesn't cater to women of color except Queen Latifah's brand by covergirl which is okay, but it isn't full coverage enough for me bad skin: acne scars, big pores, etc...

    Tiny bit obvious, but I absolutely adore doing

    my makeup. As you can see from my profile picture. I can function perfectly fine without it, don't get me wrong. But I would gladly spend hours at the mirror experimenting and then taking pictures for my makeup portfolio. What an exciting life I lead hahah

    I wear makeup almost every day

    and sometimes people assume I'm insecure, but that's not why I put it on. I just love it. It's fun to do, and it makes everything less boring :D Also it's fun to experiment with

    Since I said I loved drugstore stuff,

    I'll mention what I do use when I do put on makeup. Foundation: Revlon colorstay (which I have to mix - a 70/30 ratio of cappuccino and caramel) just to get my color, since I have a mostly red undertone. Anyway, Revlon colorstay is the best foundation in the drugstore if you...

    expensive eyeshadow palettes just because it's popular... but actually have no idea what to do with it so they don't put it to good use. like they have no idea what they're doing, or no idea how to apply makeup correctly or anything, yet they have a naked palette. They do not...
