How to apply makeup
« on: December 14, 2010, 05:38:41 PM »
I am a mother of 6 children, 2 of them being daughters.  I have worn very little makeup through the years, partly because of eye sensitivity and partly due to a lack of time and knowledge.
I'm searching for some kind of tutorial that I could give my daughters so we could learn together the basics of makeup.
I'm especially wanting something that shows a very natural look, enhancing a young lady's God- given beauty not overpowering it which ultimately detracts from it.
If it was from a Christian perspective that would be wonderful too.
Thank you for any help you could give!

I would recommend the YouTube channel called "The Makeup Chair". She isn't a christian, but she has many very informative and very basic tutorials. There are quite a few natural look tutorials as well.
