barely there make-up for the newbies

Okay, so I slacked on the 30 day challenge. Now I've decided to just quit it.

I just thought it would be cool to advise girls who are still starting out in make-up, I'm no expert or anything but I have learnt a few things since my interested picked. The most important thing is to take care of the skin underneath the make-up to ensure a lovely canvas to work on.

After that a perfectly fitting foundation is key. It can be liquid, cream or mousse. Advice from a professional is key, to ensure that the colour you go for is your true match.

Perfectly shaped eyebrows are of great importance. By perfect I don't mean an unnatural arch that might even resemble the McDonalds clown lol...I mean a neat, well groomed shape. If you're not a fan of tweezing,  just fill them in, brush with a spooly then you're set and ready to go.

I think it's easier to start off with neutral tones, then slowly move on to the brighter colours when you're sure of your blending skills to ensure a clean look.

my simple everyday look

almost look like I have no make up on at all lol

For my foundation I used Revlon colorstay foundation in 011 spice, set it with Black Opal invisible oil blocking powder,  Maybelline Fit Me concealer in 30 cafe cafe  to brighten under the eyes and clean up around the eyebrows, I used Sleek GLO face and body highlighter for a bit of a glow, I dabbed a bit of Rimmel spring flower blush on the apples of my cheeks. Rimmel mascara in black and a goldish rimmel eyeshadow on the lid and teardot.Finished off with a Ralo lippy in 03, and clear lip gloss.

What do you think? Should do more make-up tips? what's your everyday look?
