I think their claims are largely what they have convinced they are, either honest or no quite honest. I generally go to other blogs or forums to find out what real women (not vendors), with their real experiences […]

I say, “I can appreciate your thoughts, so try to appreciate mine”.

It was a combination of things. I did a lot of practicing myself, I watched my older sister when I was a tenager and I read magazines, (for years now) on different ways to apply makeup.
