Clueless about Makeup!!


Well with a mama lifestyle blog comes the topic of Make up. I never really had makeup, the odd mascara and lippy, mostly lipgloss, here and there.
Now that my baggy eyes, sleepy eyes and red spots etc are more pronounced due to me not sleeping very well (I do miss sometimes my 8 or 12 hours sleep...) I want to do something about it. Also to make me feel abit more confident. I just don't know where to start!

I have started to watch tutorials on Youtube, I roughly know that I should start with a foundation, concealer, Blush, Powder, Mascara, Brows, Bronzer, Eyeshadow and Lips. Maybe a highlighter and maybe even contouring. I understand all the steps... I just don't know what products to buy..! How do I get to the right foundation, concealer and will it stop showing my freckles? I do like them and don't really want to hide/conceal them... Also how on earth do you put makeup on, when you are basically blind...! Even a magnifying mirror isn't of much help. I guess the latter is just a case of practice, practice and practice.

I am also on a budget, which means I have to try good products at a fraction at a price, maybe some online webshops? But which ones are they? What type of brushes or beauty blenders do I need to use for what? Aaarrrgghhhh.... I am 33, I should know these things right?!?

And then when I want to show off my lippy, how on earth do you do a nice selfie?? I look like weird and strange. Again you can get help with lights and tripods etc, but once again that costs money - So tips on this as well please!

I think what I am trying to achieve from this post is HELP! How do I choose the right foundation, makeup, what is cheaper but good makeup? Where do I buy it from, in an actual store or online? And which ones, stores or websites, would be the best?

And what about brushes and beauty blenders? Will it make my lovely freckles disappear? I just want to look or appear fresh, as if  I have slept 8-12 hours instead of 2-4 hours haha!

Are you able to help me out?
