Easy 5 minute Makeup tutorial for beginners

This makeup tutorial is for all those people who feel lost in the makeup world and don’t really know what to do. I was one of those people and thats why I asked my friend Anna to help me learn how to do my own make up. I thought it would be fun to share my journey and hopefully help those who also felt lost like me. Excited for you to see the finished look.

We started with the foundation and mixed these two together. I loved how I apply the foundation like putting on sunscreen. I loved the glow it gave with the Lumi L’oreal foundation.

For a makeup tutorial for beginners this is a great product because its so easy to apply and use. I put this under my eyes after applying the foundation.

Bronzer (Ulta) (Target)

The next step is to apply the bronzer. As you can see in the video above we did it along the cheek bone and down the jaw and up on the forehead. You make almost a number three shape on the side of your head. This was something new that I learned and it was a great tip.

The next step is to apply the blush. This blush was the Milani Bake Blush in the shade Dolce Pink. I loved the color for everyday use.

This is the Essence Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara. I’ve never used brow mascara before and I am now hooked. I couldn’t believe how much it made a difference and just added to the overall look of my face.

This eyeshadow is the Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Eyeshadow Palette. I love all of the Urban Decay Naked palette, but this is perfect for everyday use. I also love the size of it for traveling as well.

Eyeliner (Ulta) (Target)

This eyeliner is the Covergirl Perfect Blend Eyeliner. I’ve never been able to feel comfortable applying liquid eyeliner and have stayed with the pencil. Its easier for me to use and I really love this. I’ve been using this eyeliner for years now.
