Makeup basics for beginners and everyone else :)

I really want to do a series of how-tos and tutorials on basic makeup application as well as some more in-depth info on the subjects.
I'm thinking about doing:

  • Eyebrows - plucking/threading, shaping, filling in
  • Foundations - different foundation types, foundation brushes, foundations for pale skin (since that's something I've had problems with)
  • Building a makeup kit
  • Primers - what they are, what difference they make, are they worth it. Face primers, lash primers, lip primers, eye primers+bases
  • Lips - lip lining, different types of lipsticks, lip conditioner, glosses
  • Eyelining - different types of eyeliner, different styles of eyeliner, brushes
  • Basic brushes
  • Eyeshadow - blending, bases+primers, brushes
  • Color theory - what eyeshadows to wear with different eye colors, color correctors
  • False lashes - application of the lashes, different types of glue, different lashes for different occasions
  • Using glitter in makeup

Would it be interesting to read? Any other ideas for more subjects to cover?

Hadde du tatt deg tid til det, hadde det vært steinbra.

I'd read every last one of them! Sounds like a bit of a project, write the ones you would think be fun to do!
Personally I'd appreciate to know how primers work on oily skin, and which works best.
Actually. what I really would be happy to find are tutorials and FAQ:s targeted to those who have all the basics down, but would like to know more of the in-depth tips and tricks! You know, MUA-tricks on let's say difficult skin types, small eyelids... that kind of thing!

Anyways, I'm so happy you're actively blogging now, love reading your posts! You're so skilled and creative.

Ildengreien - Jeg vil ikke skrive det hele på én gang, så jeg kan sagtens få tid til det :)

Marie - It *will* be a bit of a project but I think it'll be fun! - at least if someone wants to read them, haha :)
I don't plan on writing them all at once but I'll find time to do an entry every once in a while ;)
I definitely plan on going more in-depth with the articles than just the very basics but I'll see how everything works out :)
Articles on eyeshadows for different eye types is a great idea - I'll keep that in mind! :)

And thank you so much - it makes me happy that someone enjoys reading what I write :D
