How To Go From Zero Know-How To Being Your Own Makeup Hero

Deciding on a look is the easiest part. Going from naturally pretty to 'naturally' whatever you want to be is next.

If what you want to be is someone else, that's a problem. With makeup, you can be a more polished, cleaned up version of you.  The result is reinforced by the feeling that you get when you know you look good. The energy and confidence that comes with that, is the real meaning of 'whatever you want to be'...
