If you have seen my Instagram posts you must definitely have realized that me and make up are distant cousins. Not that I have anything against it as you’d have noticed that I occassionally try to use it. What had previously discouraged me is not knowing what exactly to use and how.
Even after watching hours of YouTube videos and reading a lot of posts, I just couldn’t get my own make up in the correct order. So when I learnt of a ‘feel good’ make up lesson happening at the Scottsville mall, I obviously jumped at the chance to go sit and listen to proffessionals give tips on make up. The session was part of a health festival held by the mall; this particular session was being hosted by Komisha Hair & Beauty.
The two ladies did a step by step on daily simple make up. Trust me, I learnt a lot. I knew a lot goes into achieving a perfect personal look but I still knew too little. The session was ideal for me as I like keeping a natural look as much as possible and I learnt how to enhance without ending up looking like clown or a cake about to crack. The greatest moment was when I actually discovered a foundation that works with my skin tone, I had previously used a foundation that was close to my skin tone and it always changed how I look so I had given up completely on using foundation but now that I have learnt this, there is no stopping me.
I went full of wonder and came out feeling great. Now I can really start exploring make up from a better point. This beginner will become an expert in what suits her own face someday; watch this space.
