Watch out folks… my friend Monica is on the blog today with some fabulous makeup tips for you!!
The secret to creating a look is making the perfect balance so that its natural and glamorous but it doesn’t cross the line into the “too much” side.
I know sometimes when it comes to makeup, there are so many options it can be overwhelming, but that’s what I’m here for, to make it simpler for you.
Begin by choosing a focus point; eyes, lips, skin, brows, once you do, there are no limits!
There are so many shades to choose when talking makeup, especially for eyeshadows, blush and lip color, literally from snow white to black. It all depends on your style and the look you are trying to accomplish. Don’t limit yourself to one color, we can all use every one of them and even mix and match. Even if you think there’s a color that doesn’t look good on you, believe me, there’s always a way to make it work.
The easiest way to break it down is by dividing into 4 categories, choose one each time you are trying to create a look:
Classic Girl: Focus on your skin.
What you need: face moisturizer, eye cream, foundation, concealer, highlighter, blush, bronzer, mascara, and a light lip gloss.
Boho Beauty: Focus on brows.
What you need: concealer, brow liner or shadow, brow brush, tinted moisturizer, blush, bronzer, mascara and a light lip gloss
Rocker Chic: Focus on eyes
What you need: concealer, foundation, eyeshadows (one dark and one shimmery or light shade), eyeliner, blush, mascara and a light lip gloss.
Sexy Glam: Focus on lips
What you need: tinted moisturizer, eyeliner, concealer, blush, bronzer, mascara and your favorite match of lip liner and lipstick.

So get your makeup kits ready and stay tuned, on my next blogs I will be focusing on each of these looks to give you an idea on how to create it, just remember, makeup is an art and it is not permanent, so forget all your fears and just have fun, the worst that can happen is that you don’t like it, you grab a wipe and remove it. But you will never find out until you try it.
Let’s have some fun,
