Ok, it sounds crazy, I know. I am just now getting into makeup. Well, more seriously anyway. I’ve always had makeup, which usually only consists of powder, eye shadow, blush, and lipstick. I would only put it on very occasionally, usually only during special occasions like a date night with my hubby or a wedding.
I never really cared to spend the time to put on makeup everyday before going out. And I also didn’t want to people to get in a habit of seeing me with makeup that they would be surprised to see a face naked without makeup. LOL That was just my way of thinking. I would have rathered people surprised to see my face with makeup.
So why I have I suddenly changed in the area of makeup? It all started when we were preparing to move to Nassau and launch out into full time ministry starting a church. I know I’ll be teaching/preaching on occasion and just the realization that I’ll be “out there” in front of people more that suddenly got me wanting to start putting on makeup more on a daily basis instead of just special occasions.
And so, I have been watching youtube videos on how to apply makeup, especially to the eyes, for those of us with monolids. When I’ve put a line of black eyeliner to the lash line of of my lid, you could never see it because of the way my eyes and eyelids are.
Here’s a great video on a smoky eye with monolids:
Any Asian readers of mine know of any other good tutorials specifically for Asian eyes?
