Can anyone tell me what shades of eyeshadow, blush, lipgloss/lipstick, mascara, lip liner and eye liner look good on me?
I know how to APPLY makeup, I just do not know what shades look good on me. I am fairskinned, with blond hair and blue eyes. I have full lips, and I wear glasses. My eyes are about average, and I always choose to accentuate my lips, so if using eyeliner would accentuate my eyes as well, then I won't bother with it.
I have searched all over the internet for information on how to properly find your shades, but none of it helped! Thank you soooo much!!

That way, your lips will be the center of attention, but your eyes still look nice. By brown, I just mean like, a little eyeliner on the bottom (thin line, not at all think), a medium brown on your lid (on fair skin, too dark brown will look strange because it won't blend that well). Put a tiny bit of blush on so you look a glowy and stuff. That's a good "night on the town" kind of look. For a day look, just do the light-medium brown for eyes and a neutral lipgloss. As far as eyeliner goes, a dark brown would be good because it's not too dramatic. But Almay does have that play-up collection for certain eye colors so you might want to look into that. Wearing something the same color as your eyes is good too [ illuminantshadow's advice column | Ask illuminantshadow A Question ]

FOr example if you do dramatic eyes than your lips should have light lipstick/gloss and if your lipstick is dark your eye make up should be light. if you like your lips accentuated than you could stick with that and for eye make up you can go to cvs where Almay has eye compacts for different eye colors that make your eyes stand out more. you should try that.. good luck [ BrunetteBeauti's advice column | Ask BrunetteBeauti A Question ]
