Makeup is fun, but it can also be really confusing. If you're a girl who doesn't have much experience around the cosmetics department, don't worry because we're here to help you with a few beauty basics that anyone can learn in a snap. 

THE BASE

First things first, start off with a clean face by rinsing with a cleanser. Pat dry and you're ready to go!

Next step is primer. A lot of girls tend to skip the primer, but if you want your makeup to stay longer, a primer is your best bet. Opt for a brightening primer to illuminate your face right away!

Foundation comes as third in line. According to Renée Roulou, a celebrity beauty expert, choosing a foundation is also dependent on your skin type. Oily skin types work best with powder or matte foundations while dry skin works best with liquid. To choose the right color of foundation, check out this nifty trick straight from pro makeup artist Bobbi Brown! (via Renée Roulou)

Next up, concealer. Unlike foundation, which is used to set the base of the entire look all over your face, concealer is used only on troubled spots such as under the eyes or on acne scars.

When you're done putting on your base makeup, don't forget to always set in with powder! Girls with dry skin may choose to forgo the powder, but if you have oily skin, you may want to put your powder on as in can help reduce the shine throughout the day.

Try: Fit Me Matte + Poreless Powder P399, Maybelline

When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.

You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.

You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
