My name is Sandrine Souvorov, I am a professional makeup artist with many years of experience working in Rwanda. “Makeup is a lifestyle, either it is in you or isn’t.
Makeup has evolved through ages, nowadays wearing makeup became a trend that most girls started to embrace.
The average woman spends around 15 minutes or more putting on makeup and you don’t have to feel guilty about it. Makeup in our society has a long history and many people are now adapted to wearing it.
There are lots of positive reasons why to wear makeup. When it is your thing just do it. Remember putting on makeup is a personal choice, if you don’t feel comfortable in it, then don’t wear it.
Some benefits of wearing makeup:
It also gives us a multitude of ideas to change our appearance and create a more perfect version of ourselves. Makeup helps us to step into different roles, from a professional appearance for work to a provocative appearance for seduction.
The level of your confidence goes high. Makeup can boost your confidence by making us feel more confident and ready to face the day.
You can change into any look you want, allowing you to explore with more perfected versions of yourself.
Makeup is fun, it helps us to create new different looks that reflect our mood for the day. Makeup makes us spend time on ourselves by taking care of our looks.
Makeup brings women together, by sharing different viewpoints on their journey and experience in wearing makeup.
Its fun, with makeup you can create new looks as you explore your artistic capabilities. There are no boundaries in art and wearing makeup can make you feel more self-assured.
About beauty in general
If you are new to the makeup game, then you definitely know the hustle of trying to figure out which products you need, to start building your kit, whether it’s a personal makeup kit or a professional one.
I know some of you may be discouraged by the fact that some makeup products are way too expensive but I have good news for you, beauty does not have to be expensive, you can still get quality beauty products at an affordable price.
I use L.A Girl for concealers, highlighting and contouring as well as covering up any blemishes.
Important note, before choosing any beauty products it is important that you know which shade can match your skin and to know the type of skin you have if it is an oily skin or a dry skin for you to find what match with your skin.
Beginner’s makeup kit can include:
- Brown kit
- Eyebrow and highlighter palette
- Setting powder
- Beauty blender
- Blush palette
- Setting spray
- Makeup brushes
- Lip liner, lipstick (different color by your choice).
And the most important thing to do is to do not forget to take off your makeup before you go to bed, like me for the skincare I use GARNIER MICELLAR CLEANSING WATER for sensitive skin as I have sensitive skin. Makeup removal is the most important part of any skin routine, I choose Garnier micellar water because it helps to get rid of all the makeup, dirt, impurities and quickly refreshes your skin with just a few drops and it has no oil, fragrance or alcohol and the best part is that the formula acts as a cleanser, I also use it to remove my eye makeup, so you don’t have to wash your face after taking off your makeup. You can use it as a toner as well. I have used many other micellar cleansing waters and this one is the best I would recommend it 100%. After taking off your makeup then you can put any night crème according to your choice and your skin.
