Make Up?

I haven't bought new make up for myself in over 2 years. And I really want to start wearing make up again it makes me feel so much better about myself. Do you have any advice on what I should get? I recently colored my hair too, so the makeup I do have is not looking right on me and my foundation isn't matching my skin tone.HELP!

  • I wouldn't wear make up that old anyways. Just get rid of it and get new. It can grow bacteria and stuff in it that can make you break out. I use Bare Minerals and I love it!

  • have a consultation @ one of the makeup counters, make an apt. or go in..its usually free but ur expected to buy at least 2 things usually, i work for clinique & LOVE their products. if u have any other questions let me know. but they best way to get the right colors is go to the counter & play to see what u like. good luck!

  • I use this awesome DVD I found on how to apply make-up! It has really helped me achieve different looks from daytime casual to evening glamour. The make-up artist, Krista Embry, has worked with celebrity clients across the country, so she has a lot to offer in the way of experience. What I like best is the simplicity of her teaching. If I can do this, I know the average woman out there can do it too! I've put a link to the website below, where you can go and see a free tip from her video. If you've ever had a question about how to apply make-up for any type of look, I highly recommend you check out this site "Impact Your Image". Let me know what you think!
    Plus you can get your colors done on there too!
    To visit the Impact Your Image website, go to this address: Email me with questions and how to get those custom colors as you need a password..
    Good luck!
