If it is going to be your first time to apply makeup on your eyes, then the best way to go about it is to use a pencil eyeliner. This is because a pencil eyeliner is easier to work with, than the other kinds. Just make sure that you have a steady hand, so that you can do it perfectly.

44. Starting out fresh.

When you are just starting to put makeup on your face, it is best to go with the basics first. A light foundation should help you a lot, but you should not apply it heavily at first. Aside from using a foundation, you can also utilize a concealer to hide the blemishes. Once you have gained more experience, then don’t hesitate in exploring other makeup items.

45. Makeup for the bride.

Since it is going to be one of your most memorable days, you want everything to be perfect, including your makeup. Therefore, for your bridal makeup, you should not follow the trends, since they usually come and go, and you may not be sure if it would suit you best. Go for a more classic look, so that you would smile every time you check out your photos years after.
