Things I'd tell my younger self about makeup & beauty

I often think about this topic when applying makeup, looking at old pictures from my early teens or giving my younger sister makeup tips. Experimenting with makeup is a huge part of growing up, and I think making mistakes helps you to learn what looks good on you and what doesn't.
