Best Places To Learn Everything About Makeup
Some of us began wearing makeup at a young age – as in, we were sneaking around behind our parents backs and putting on lipstick and eyeliner after we left the house at the young age of 12 or 13. Then there were those of us who didn’t touch the stuff until we were well into our high school or college years. For both groups, learning to use the products never comes easy – after years of the wrong shade of foundation, lipstick or gloss, plus not knowing how to use that crazy silver contraption that is supposed to curl your lashes, you begin to get pretty fed up with makeup altogether.
In an effort to make the “getting prettied up” process a little less stressful, there are a lot of options now to help you to learn the little tips and tricks you need to know to get that flawless look you’ve been craving. Here are a few of our favorites:

They can also walk you through picking out the right eyeshadows, blushes, lipsticks, etc.

Also, not to toot our own horns or anything, but a lot of online beauty sites are great makeup resources, giving you everything from celeb looks to runway how-tos.
