Guess what I've learned recently? Makeup enhances beauty. At least for me it does!
I'm in an auditions class, and my acting teacher has become a sort of personal manager for her students. A few weeks in, I asked her about how I look on camera, and she immediately had me try on her lipsticks. I felt like I was thirteen again at a slumber party doing makeovers.
The next week, after I purchased the exact same lipstick that she had me try on, I saw myself on camera. The first thing that went through my head was, "Oh, that's what my lips look like!"
Here's what I use, which I am now in love with:
Covergirl Outlast. It comes with one lipstick (or lip paint) and one gloss to shine up the matte color.
After the lip paint dries, it stays on for hours. I have to use makeup remover to get it off.
These are my colors. The middle one is my go-to for auditions.
I just bought the lightest one today, and I love it too. I wanted an everyday color.
I'm slowly learning the ways of makeup, one method at a time, whether it's lipstick colors or highlighting the tear duct part of my eyes. It's an art, people! Though I do consider myself an artist, I'm still not used to this medium or canvas.
P.S. I googled the spelling of "makeup" and the following are commonly used: make-up, make up, makeup. You decide which is right.
