Make- Up...dun dun duuuuuun

So, I suck at being a girl. At least where make-up is involved. When most girls learn to do their make-up from their friends when they are in high school or maybe even middle school. (1) I did not have many friends (2) the few that I did were guys. So I missed that boat completely.

Now, I am 24 years old and I often get mistaken for a 16 year old. I am sure that I will be quite appreciative of this when I am 30. As for now, I think that this is a hindrance to my professional and social life. So have decided that I am going to dedicate a bit of time and money to learning to get my make-up on.

I have visited a few beauty blogs (that are linked on my blogroll). Most of them suggest Mac, Nars, and Bobbi Brown. I am not at the point where I want to shell out the bucks that these products would cost. So I hit the CVS and the discount make-up store at the Jersey Gardens mall and picked up some ELF. products. Then I have my big color palette that I got from Mandee for $10.00.

So here is my first attempt.

If you have any tips, I am more than appreciative

LOL I was a manager at Mandee. I myself don't intend on alloting that much of my cash to makeup... However I thought the cosmetics they carry was crappy. Eyeliner hard as hell n didn't apply, eyeshadow flat but u appearantly worked wonders with what u bought cause my face sure as hell didn't look as good as urs came out...good job for a first attempt. The pic I have up displays my first real attempt at applyin makeup(not counting the Mandee makeup)
