Makeup Basics 101

Makeup has been used for thousands of years dating as far back to the ancient Egyptians. Not only used to enhance beauty, but for boosting confidence, looking the part for interviews or staying in character.

Makeup is best enjoyed when applied as desired, whether it be a minimal, natural look or heavy glam contouring session.

Ultimately, what makes you comfortable is most important.

Shops are saturated with various types of makeup, and it may be a good idea to get the 101 on what products are out and what each is used for.

Here are some of the most widely used types of Makeup.

Makeup For Eyes

Eye Primer – This cream will keep your eyeshadow in place.

Mascara – Apply some mascara to define and elongate your lashes

Eyelash Curler – The curler will keep your eyelashes curled and lengthened

Eyelash Adhesive – The adhesive will help you keep your false eyelashes in place on a night out.
