  • I used to use bright colors and lots of eyeliner. Now it is more subdued. I think as I've gotten older, the bright make-up makes me look funny.

  • I use eye shadow, liner, and mascara on my eyes. Olive green liner and different light browns and greens in the shadow. Pressed powder on my face, and a tinted lip balm. Occasionally I will add some blush if I haven't had enough sleep and I look pale.

  • lol once I think I looked like Mimi haha. I would use neons, purples, almost every color you can think of. I was never one for foundation though. I would only focus on one part of my face. Mostly my eyes. If I had bright eyeshadow, I wouldn't wear lipstick (which I'm not to fond of anyway). Now it's more neutral tones like beige.

  • I keep it pretty simple and natural looking. I use a cream to powder foundation that I put on with a foundation brush so it doesn't look all "cakey". then blush, eyeshadow, and liner. when it comes to my lips I stick to sheer colors/lipgloss or just use lip moisturizer. I actually have several shades of lip gloss that I carry in my purse. I'm a lip gloss fanatic. lol

  • I wear liquid foundation with loose powder over it. I then color in my eyebrows brown because they are blonde. I then do my eyeshadow and use 2 colors(usually a white/cream and shimmer brown). I then put on black pencil eyeliner, top and bottom(not on the inside rim though). Then lots of mascara! I then follow up with bronzer since its Summer time. Last is the nude color lip liner, then nudish/pink lipstick and a little gloss. It sounds like alot but I don't think it looks bad lol.

  • I play up my eyes alot but the rest natural.

    Answer by Sarah961 at 11:49 PM on Jul. 8, 2011

  • Goes on like this: Liquid foundation (normally fair, but I accidentally bought tawny beige and it looks pretty good), face powder (fair to nude), blush (peachy-neutral shade), eye shadow (purples ... sort of smoky), liquid liner (black only), mascara (black), lip liner, chapstick, lipstick and then gloss. Lip liner/stick colors change with my moods ... but the liner is always darker than the lipstick.

    I never leave home without my liners (lip and eye), chapstick, gloss, lipstick and face powder.

  • Im a very simple make-up wearer...only eyeliner & mascara for me! lol

  • I do my make-up natural. you don't want to look like you have make-up on because you would want to make it look like it's all you, but enhance some.
