As a pre-teen I remember thinking that I couldn’t wait to be older so that I could wear make-up and be “pretty”. Soon after being allowed to wear make-up, I realized that it was a bit more complicated than just putting on lipstick and dabbing on some eye-shadow to get the look I saw in the magazines.
I was terrified of concealer, not finding the right color and ending up looking painted on or unnatural. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve picked up some techniques that have really enhanced my natural beauty without looking overly done. I love to use makeup as a form of expression but it does not define me. With or without makeup I love the skin I’m in.
