Designed by Katelyn Kappel.At R29, we're often in awe of beauty pros — the hairstylists, manicurists, and makeup artists who regularly wow us with their incredible talent. But, what about the rest of us — the people who never went to beauty school? After all, most of us aren't born knowing how to plait perfectly or manage a tidy manicure. Heck, if you're not a natural artiste, even getting cream blush right can be tough.
And, that's okay — everyone's gotta start somewhere, right? With that in mind, we present Beauty Prep School, our all-new series of video tutorials. We'll show you how to learn the basics (and some not-so-basics, too) in hair, makeup, and nails. Easy to follow, easy to master — they're all you need to build up a serious beauty repertoire. Check out our inaugural group of videos, and stay tuned for more how-to goodness comin' your way.
