Because there’s no harm in turning to a good ‘ol how-to guide for help...

We owe Pinterest many thanks for helping us become who we are today, especially when it comes to helping us navigate the beauty world. Sure, we’ve tried and failed a time or two, but we’ve also managed to learn how to sculpt perfectly defined, thick brows, to figure out the best eyeliner for our eye shape and how to use color-correcting makeup with the help of informative infographics that conveniently live in our Pinterest feed.
