  • get something that compliments your eyes, the idea is a contrasting base color. if your eyes are blue use a brown with a copper base to make them pop, brown can use ANY color! do a cat eye if you have the right shape with a darker color on the outside with a shimmer on the inside and on the brow. def use mascara! it will make your eyes pop. blusher do a nike swish on the cheeks up toward the eye and nude lip color if you're using a lot on the eyes. play up your gifts, if you have nice lips use those as your center point.

  • find a place that does it for free, and go there. Some Sephoras offer clinics. Have them show you. Make sure you bring enough dollars to actually buy something, and then, go and recreate the look with less expensive brands.

  • yep...keep it natural.
    i do a little foundation....light dusting of blush on high points of my cheeks...down bridge of my nose and across forehead at the hairline. i'm brunette and wear a lot of colors -, i apply dark purple eye liner and a light dusting of more blush for the shadow effect on my lids. i don't apply mascara unless we're goin' somewhere fancy. mascara and my contacts can't seem to get along...LOL!
    lipliner for my lips and apply my fav lipstick. - boom!...less than five minutes!
    applying the foundation takes the longest amount of time - i also use a liquid foundation that dries to a light matte's awesome! anyway...hope this helps...good luck!

  • Go to any cosmetic counter like Estee Lauder or Clinic. They will show you how to do your makeup. I always buy something like an eyeshadow I really like or mascara. Then I go and buy everything else cheaper at another store. But if you really love their foundation you might want to buy it, it's the thing I have the most problem with finding one I like. Bare Essentials makes great eye shadow and blush. Nice looking and natural.
