There are different ways of applying makeup. One good place to start is your local makeup counter so they can pick out the right colors for you. Always make sure you apply makeup to clean skin. You should always use clean brushes and sponges to keep bacteria from contaminating your face. One thing to keep in mind is to choose colors that look good on you. Some people say less is better. So if you want a natural look, don’t apply makeup too thick or too dark.
