4 Ways to Improve Your Makeup Skills This Year

It’s the start of the new year, which means that many people are making resolutions. And because of the state of the world right now, many people are opting for fun resolutions this year, rather than serious ones.

For a lot of people, this means working on a hobby or developing a skill. If you’ve always been interested in makeup, then this is the year to improve your makeup skills. Keep reading to learn how.

Get the right products

You wouldn’t ask a painter to paint something without paint and a paintbrush, would you? So how can you expect to do good makeup without the right products?

The answer is you can’t. As with most art forms, the better the quality of the products you’re using, the better the results. However, that doesn’t mean you should go and buy high-end makeup products.

There are plenty of affordable products that will help you develop your skills. If are vegan or simply trying to be more environmentally conscious this year, you’re also in luck. Many brands offer vegan concealer and other makeup products so that you can look good without compromising your morals.

Get some help

If you’re struggling with a certain makeup look, or you have no idea how to begin working on your makeup skills, give yourself a boost by getting some help. You might be able to attend an in-person makeup class, but be sure to maintain a safe social distance if you do.

Alternatively, you can join an online class or even watch online tutorials for free. Often, it’s much easier to follow someone’s exact steps than to try and do your makeup from scratch. By following other people, you will be able to work on your technique, which will make it much easier when you do start to experiment and do your own looks.


Makeup is a form of art. This means that, just like with any other art form, you need to regularly practice if you want to develop your skills.

While some people may naturally find it easier to do makeup than others, if you keep practicing it enough, you will be able to become very talented at doing your makeup. But to do this, you need to be committed.

Set aside some time each week to practice your makeup skills. Start with these basic tips and work your way up to more challenging things as you progress.

Find your own style

We all have our own style when it comes to clothing – some may like a classic and minimalist look, while others will prefer boho-style looks. It’s no different when it comes to makeup.

Everyone has their own style of makeup that they enjoy doing, so experiment with different styles until you find one that you like. You don’t need to be copying what everyone else is doing – makeup is a way of expressing yourself, and as long as you’re having fun, that’s all that matters. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself either. Rather just enjoy the journey and see what you can learn.
