Importance Series

Hiiii everyone! This time i'll be posting about the importance of a good base. When i say a good base i mean makeup-wise! (:

Some may ask why is a good base is important. Well im gonna tell you! A good base for makeup is like a good base for cupcakes. ( I know, im obsessed. I just had to connect it to cupcakes, didnt i. )

If you dont have a good base ( cupcake pans and liners ) your cupcakes wont be as beautiful. With makeup its a bit less serious though. If you skip foundation and go straight to mascara the world wont end but if you try to make cupcakes on a cookie sheet something will go wrong!

Here are some possibilities. This isnt a concrete list so change this to fit your skin type and preferences.

- Primers ( a face primer is used to fill pores, gaps, and wrinkles to create a smooth surface. This step is optional, good f or all skin types )
- Concealer ( a cream, liquid, mousse, etc. formula for hiding small imperfections. not ment for all over the face wear )
- Foundation ( a liquid, creme, powder, etc. formula used to create a nice base for makeup, all over face wear )
- Translucent Powder ( a light powder formula used to seal in the base and create a matte or dewy finish, all over face wear )


1. I reccommend applying primer with a finger
2. Apply concealer with a finger or a small concealer brush
3. Apply foundation with a brush
4. Apply translucent powder with a large fluffy brush
5. Use a foundation that is specifically for the finish you want. ( i.e. if you want a matte look use a matifying foundation )

Importance Series

Hiiiii everyone! Today im gonna be talking  about the importance of the beauty rule: Less is More! I cannot stress this enough. And i have something to admit. I once was a major violater of this rule!

On the day of a field trip in 6th grade i was running late so i slapped on a huge amount of blue eyeshadow. I know, im ashamed. If thier was a support group for people who wear a hideously large amount of blue eyeshadow i'd be there!

" My names Payton and i was not aware of the beauty rule: Less is More"

As an 8th grader at a middle school i see girls offend this rule daily. It's a sad sight.

Heres a few ways to keep it simple but gorgeous.

1. If your short on time dont follow in my footsteps by slathering on what you can in 5 minutes. Keep it easy by just applying a coat or two of mascara and lip balm.

2. If you have more time or want a more intricate look try adding blush and lip gloss.

3. Lets say you have lots of extra time and feel like going fancy. A little concealer and foundation is the perfect base.

Sunscreen Importance

As a kid my mom actually never made me where sunscreen. Not because she wasnt a good mom but because she was unaware of the consequences of not protecting your skin. I now wear sunscreen almost everday and i wear the highest SPF i can. Im actually not very good about sunscreen but i will be. Just google "sun effects" and some pretty gross but real pictures will come up. Its best to get in the habit as early as possible. Sunscreen will do more than any wrinkle cream can later.
