A Week of Makeup Reviews from A Newbie Make-Up Girl

I suck at being a girl!!!! At least when it comes to make-up. I have mentioned this before. I am a total make-up novice. Since one of my New Year's resolutions was to become a makeup maven, I should really step my make-up game up.

I have been collecting a very small and inexpensive collection of drug store makeups. There are a few that have proven golden and that formulate my default look. Here's a little help for those of you that are in the same boat as me...Attempting to learn about this process and need a few staples.

So for the next 5 days, I will be introducing my top. They are by no means new, but they have proven to be reliable for a make-up retard.

L'Oreal Truth Cream Eyeliner - Black

I came across this eyeliner after much trial and error. I wanted that black-on-black eyeliner look that Rihanna (the new face of all things stylish) had been rocking. I tried 99 cent store liner pencils, more expensive pencils, liquid eyeliners, liquid pens...none of then achieved the look that I wanted.

I saw this in the CVS and figured that it was a bit pricey for my taste ($11.99) but I needed that look. lol. And I had heard good things about the H.I.P. collection from make-up mavens. So I picked up. How did I live without this stuff? PERFECTION!!!!It is creamy, it has a sharp little angled application brush that makes you line as thin or ass thick as you like it. It's almost infallible. A few tries and you've got it. If you do screw up, it can easily be fixed.

So. If you are a total makeup noob or someone that just needs a liner that is THE SHIT...get this.

I'm kind of makeup stupid, but I'll keep your suggestion in mind! I have liquid liner, and I struggle real hard to put it on nicely. How do you get your liner on without running into your own eyelashes?

I tried liquid liner. It was too much for me to deal with. That is why I got this creamy liner. It is oerfection in a pot. It comes with a and angles brush that make the application ssooooo easy.
