Find a Makeup Style that Suits You
Finding a makeup style that suits you is probably the most important aspect of cosmetic application. Once you have that part narrowed down, you can then begin the next phase which is research.

Research Makeup Tutorials
There are so many makeup videos online to help you learn how to apply products in the style you want, and there is no better place to look than YouTube. So many beauty bloggers post up videos on how to get specific looks, and they detail the colors, shades, styles of application, what you need to apply the makeup as far as tools, and show you how it’s done. There are also many written tutorials available online as well, so use the internet to your advantage to get the look you are going for.

Practice Makes Perfect
Practicing any makeup look you want will help you to achieve the look, look your absolute best, and allow you to change the style up and modify it to your own specifications. You can sit in front of your mirror, spend time working on the style, and experiment with different colors and styles. The look you create is an art form, and it’s all up to you.

When practicing your look, be sure to only work on one area at a time and stay focused. Designate a specific amount of time to working on your eyes, then cheeks, lips, and et cetera until you are finally comfortable with your skill. Over time, you will only get better.

Add Some Falsies
False lashes can help to make everything feel prettier, and by learning the application methods of false lashes – again by practicing – you will bump your look up a notch. You can give your eye makeup a completely new look and look more glamorous – even for just one night. False lashes come in many different types, such as synthetic, human hair, and mink, but a good place to start for practice purposes is to opt for some cheap ones until you get good at applying them. A good pair of false lashes will last for a long time with proper care.
