There are a lot of of educational sites on the internet were you can go and get simple makeup ideas and watch applications. I am on Facebook and have seen some good channels and also bad channels. Below is a channel I would highly recommend watching on beauty, hair care, makeup products that have been used and the user will let you know how well it worked for them.
Preen.me Is a wonderful channel to get ideas! I love to watch the short makeup applications on this channel. And there is a lot of beauty, nail, and hair care ideas also. Give a look. This is a great way of learning makeup and techniques. I could watch it for hours and you will learn quickly.
