Just so we can be clear, I think of myself as a makeup newbie too.
I only started makeup like a year ago and until 6 months ago, I only put on mascara, eye liner and concealer. And even now, what I wear are only foundation/BB cream, setting power, eyebrow liner, lipstick/lipgloss and eye liner, mascara, concealer, which I think is really not much, just very basic. I mean, I still don’t wear blush/bronzer, eyeshadow or anything I didn’t mention above. And I definitely don’t own a dozens of makeup brushes. You know what, I’m going to do a post later(not later this day, next month is more likely), about what do I own, then you can decide how much of a newbie I am.
I’m a student and I’m not born with a silver spoon. That means, I’m usually on a budget. So, I’m not likely to wear a Dior mascara or any higher-end brands like that. I’m more into drugstore brand. Actually, I shop in Hong Kong, my “drugstore” would be stores like Watsons, Mannings, Sasa, Bonjour(They are pretty much like drugstore in States). Well, that’s quite reader-friendly(I hope I’m not being arrogant :P), you can easily follow me if you want to.
Ok, now, you can go on and scroll down the page.
Oops, almost forgot this. Under this category, I include things about makeup. That being, product reviews, makeup tips, looks recreation… anything about makeup goes to this category. And I do include makeup removers here too. Most people put them under skincare, but I think, you don’t buy makeup remover unless you buy makeup. That makes it more makeup-related than skincare-related.
