For beginners, it could be fairly hard putting liner on your waterline, especially when you are using a hard eye liner pencil to do so. Invest in a retractable eye liner. It’s way softer for your eyes and still gets the job done. Adding some before you leave the house will definitely give your eyes that pop effect.

2. Mascara

Finish off your eyeliner look with a few brushes of mascara. It will wake your lashes up and spread them apart. Definitely a must have.

3. Eye shadow

If you are clueless when it comes to eye shadow, the first rule you need to know is to never match your eye makeup with your shirt. Keep your makeup as natural as possible. It’s an awful sight to witness someone who has matched their shadow to their shirt AND it’s applied wrong.

4. Lipstick

Lipstick is simply trial and error. Test out lipstick until you find the perfect one for you. If you are going to wear lipstick, make sure to put it in your purse so you can refresh it throughout the day. If lipstick is not your thing, try out some glosses. Either way you can’t go wrong with even the littlest knowledge of makeup.
