My Favorite Makeup Tutorials

If you’ve read my skincare routine post, you’ll know I LOVE makeup… I just never wear it.

Working from home, there’s really no need for me to get dolled up in order to sit in front of my computer all day, take my dog for a walk, or say hi to the UPS truck driver. I consider my work attire to be a messy bun, a bare face, and a nice matching pajama set. (I mean, it’s a jacket and pants! Might as well be a full suit!)

Even though I don’t wear makeup often, I sure do watch a lot of makeup tutorials. I find them soothing, and I love watching people change up their look with some perfectly placed pigments. Plus, when the time comes for me to put on makeup, I already have some inspiration in my back pocket.

Most of the tutorials here are featured on medium to medium-tan skintones, mainly because those are all pretty close to my shade, depending on the season. The first four are all definitely brown-skin friendly, but I’m sure would work on a variety of other skintones as well, even if it takes a little tweaking! And number five on the list… well, we all need a little fun in our lives.

I’m pretty big into soft, relatively neutral makeup, so most of these looks fall under that category. Bright colors and I have a tumultuous history (looking at you, electric blue eyeshadow from sixth grade) but one day I’d like to try something bright and fun. I’m not there yet… but one day.

Also, even though a lot of these tutorials use high end products, you can find a much more affordable dupe for just about everything these days!

So here we go, my top five favorite makeup tutorials!

New Year, Same Face [Skincare Routine]

New Year, Same Face [Skincare Routine]

Happy New Year, everyone! 🎉

2018 was… rough. Really rough! That’s not to say that it didn’t have its bright points, but I’m ready to keep moving forward and seek out better times.

Now that it’s 2019 and we’re all (well, a lot of us are) setting goals for the months ahead, I figured I’d share one of mine: keep up with a regular skincare routine. And I know I’m not the only one with that goal.

At this point in my life (my 20s) I’m blessed to say I have a solid routine and pretty clear skin, and I’d really love to keep both—knock on wood! However, it took quite a while (and a whole journey) to get to this point.

Let’s start at the beginning. Buckle your seatbelts, ’cause this is gonna be a long one.
