FOTD: Shades of Brown

9/11/2012

 Last Saturday, I was not in the mood to work on my thesis and my attention was caught by the make-up tutorial bug. Being a fan of make-up that I am, I always rely on blogs, tutorials and videos to educate me more on make-up, most especially on application techniques because honestly, I'm such a noob on these parts. And yes, I admit, the entire Saturday downtime was consumed watching loads of video tutorials in YouTube.

Just a piece of information, I am not someone who wears make-up all the time save for the usual BB cream and setting powder that I can't leave the house without. I am not gifted with perfect flawless skin so the need to have a bit coverage is necessary. I am not also a fan of eye shadows and I can always go on a usual day without wearing one. But after knowing that every woman must wear an eye shadow, or make up per se, and how it can really change your look big time, I changed my attitude towards make-up.

 Sunday came when I finally get to do the return demonstration make-up application (as inspired by the make-up gurus out there). Since I wanted to learn more and practice more in terms of make-up creation and application, I'll be documenting my make-up experiments here in my blog for my future personal reference as well.

Pardon me with this look. I know I still need more practice in putting make-up. Without the right tools and education, I believe I still need to learn more.
