A while back Amy Rose sent us this pitch:

Hi ladies. I had no idea how to do my makeup in even rudimentary ways at all for many years of being a teenager. Can I do a series of posts about LEARNING THE VERY BASICS of how to put together your face? Like, routine-wise, what goes on after what and where and in what color? What are everyday products that you use, and how do you use them? I feel like all the beauty advice I’ve given in the past is like CONTOURING and FAKE EYELASHES and in high school I would have been like, “What? How do I do mascara?!” I know that so many teenagers now are BEAUTY PROS because I have seen their amazing stuff online, but others probably need an idea of where to start. Let me know if you think this is a good idea. X ARS

Obviously, we think this is a GREAT idea, so here you go. This first lesson is about prepping your canvas, so to speak—evening out your skin tone and adding a little dimension.
