Beauty & Makeup 101

When I decide to tackle a new project, I tend to get really excited. Like… Really, really excited. I loved running the San Francisco Half Marathon so much that while still high on endorphins, I signed up for the Golden Gate Half Marathon in November. And bought a running watch. And new shoes.

See what I mean?

I’m all in.

So after binge watching videos on Lydia Elise Millen’s YouTube Channel, I decided that I’ve neglected my girlie side by never learning how to really do my own makeup.

I mean, I know how to do my makeup. I get dressed every day thank you very much. I can do a cat eye. I mastered liquid liner. I even have a makeup tray at home filled with things that I’ve bought over the years. Most of which I don’t use or even know what to do with.

But when my YouTube binge happened to correspond with trying, and failing, to book a makeup appointment to get me ready for a Gala, I realized it was time. I would do my own makeup for the event. For the first time in the six years I’d been going!

So I’m going to start a new Beauty & Makeup 101 series this year where I share my adventures with new types of makeup – Contouring kits, what! – And products, and actually share some of the looks that I manage to put together.

I will never be a foundation-every-day kinda of girl, but I do love the idea of not having to shell out for a makeup artist every single time I have an event or a photo shoot on the schedule.

Tell me – What beauty or makeup subject would YOU like me to tackle? Any suggestions or requests?
