Makeup neophyte

I don't wear makeup. The only time I wore makeup was during my college graduation photo shoot and during mandatory makeup occasions like proms, balls and weddings, oh and ice skating competitions. Heck, I didn't even wear makeup during my debut and my college graduation. So I guess, that's probably just around 20 times of wearing makeup for my whole 25 years of existence. However, I am feeling this urge to wear makeup so I'd look more my age and less like a teener. I'm still quite afraid of makeup and I squirm like crazy when some sort of makeup is applied on my face.

With our upcoming prenup photo sessions and our wedding less than a year to go, I've finally taken the leap from my dependence on oil blotting films alone. Today, I am a proud owner of a minute tube of liquid foundation. I think it's a good start. But my post isn't about that, it's how despite my makeup ignorance, I am a firm believer in the transforming power of the eyeliner. As shown in my photo, the eyeliner made me look a tad bit more mature and well-groomed. And so my makeup investments shall now increase to a tandem of liquid foundation and a trusty black eyeliner.

I'm no expert, but to makeup newbies I think having a good eyeliner is the way to go. Oh, and you can throw in a nice lip gloss too.=)

  1. I don't know where I'd be without my black eyeliner, I love it. I usually wear Avon eyeliner. I admit, I'm a makeup girl though- I usually wear the same MAC eyeshadow & usually always foundation & powder. Clinique & Avon have nice lipglosses. :)
