Makeup is tricky and if you didn’t grow up with an older sister then you’re left to forge your own trail of makeup mishaps and frustrations. Too much and it looks caked, too little and you won’t even see it. And don’t even get me started on perfecting liquid eyeliner. Now there are plenty of makeup tips and hacks out there, but not all of them may apply to us. And this is why I went through many lists to find awesome makeup tips for you guys.
I was able to narrow down some awesome graphs from great lists that will give you the edge on beauty techniques and of course the basics. I really like finding awesome information for my readers so I hope you’re able to get some great tips and techniques from these infographics.
