Not sure how to start your fashionista career? Just plain clueless on anything makeup? Or just reading stuff on the internet?
I've got you covered!
1 . Know your face key features
Everyone has features on their face that defines their face. The key here is to accentuate the pros and minimizing the cons and work with what you have.
Season makeup trends are mostly revolves around these key features;
These are the usual key plays. It just doesn't go any further than this, unless human starts sprouting something else.
The idea is you are putting something on these part of your face: These are the parts of your face that you are going to apply something on!
One advice that I always give out is I would ask "What are you going to put on?". They'd have no clue what and where. And ending up putting on every thing in their makeup bag. Which is wrong.
Conclusion: its not to put on everything in your makeup bag onto your face. Its to put makeup onto your features.
2 . Pick your features
Pick 2 or 3 to accentuate never more. Pick ones that you like most about your face. Or the one that is the "in" season. And go easy with the rest.
More would risk you looking like a clown, less won't be enough to pull it of. Be clear of what you want to achieve.
i.e : Strong:lips+brows Warm:eyes+lashes Neutral:skin+cheeks
3 . Study your "Bookmarked" features on ad's and adapt and keep up
Your favorite key features can vary. Its just basically your preference.
Your might love your eyes cause your skin is such a pimpl'ville. But it would clear up and now your skin is now your favorite.
Strong eye makeup is the in thing. But blushing cheeks might be the next season forecast.

Learning how to recognize makeup differences on key features in trends is important in oder to analyze the current trend.
The trick of looking all fashionable all the time is to tweak one or two things at at time.
4 . Learn techniques to apply makeup
There are so many ways you can apply makeup. Some of the basic must knows and hows are:
- applying liquid/powder/mouse/cream/etc. foundation correctly

One of the major differences in makeup look is how its applied and the different colors and textures of the makeup you are playing with.
Youtube is a great place to refer and share as they are not paid by people who are trying to sell products (well maybe some). But still there are so many step by step tutorials that can help.

5 . Experiment and Have fun!
One of the things that I think new girls don't do enough is experiment on their makeup. They are scared to put on that green eyeshadow on their face or that red lipstick on their eyes.
Lock your door and go crazy! Green minimize redness on skin. Lipstick makes great cream eyeshadow for the eyes.
Everyone has a different way to do it and what might work for your friend might not work on you. Just be patient and find your own thing and share you experiance with others!
I hope this helps. I really honestly think all girls are beautiful. What matter the most is the heart and the effort you put in. A happy girl is after all a beautiful girl! A hating girl is after all an insecure girl!
