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!
