Make Me Up


I can't get enough makeup. As I've been more frugal, I've stayed away from shopping for items that aren't necessary. Well, when you want to save money, the best thing to do is go out and buy the right product the first time. Also, quality is key. I have fair, sensitive skin and tend to get a pimple or two on my chin every once in a while. That means I really, really have to be careful about my products otherwise I end up with a stockpile of foundation that makes me breakout.

Luckily, there are many helpful sites to help us on our quest for Holy Grail products:
I love learning new application techniques. Here are some great artists:
  • Kevin Aucoin's book Making Faces is a must. The man was a true artist.
  • Bobbi Brown's book Beauty has some nice basic makeup info. I love her focus on taking care of your skin.
  • Carmindy from What Not to Wear has some great little tips, especially for folks who don't normally wear makeup.
  • Tricia Sawyer has an amazing amount of information on her website. She doesn't just list application tips, but has tons of video as well.
