    To begin, look in the mirror. Decide what makeup you need. Have acne? Consider wearing a primer and foundation. Dark circles under your eyes? Concealer is the answer. Want your eyes to pop? Eyeliner and mascara is for you.

    After deciding what you need to wear, go shopping for your makeup, if you don't already have it. Good stores to buy makeup are MAC and Sephora. If you want something cheap, check out your local drugstore (Rite Aid, Wal-Mart, etc.)

    Make sure you have a great base! Cleaning your face, applying toner, using moisturizer, and a good primer are the most important things you can do, as this will improve your skin without makeup, and minimize what you need to wear to have flawless skin. (They all should be appropriate to your skin tone, of course).

    The quality of your eyeshadow will determine what you have to do first. If your eyeshadow results in a lot of fallout (or dropped eyeshadow under your eyes), it's easiest to do your eyes before your face and lips, as you can just wipe away fallout with a makeup remover wipe. If you will not be wearing eyeshadow, or if your eyeshadow doesn't result in much fallout, you can get away with doing your face makeup first.

    After you do your eye makeup or face makeup first, go ahead and do the other one. While your face makeup will likely always be the same (primer, foundation, concealer), your eye makeup will likely change from day to day, so decide if you want to focus on your eyes or lips, and then apply your eyeshadow accordingly. If you're playing up your eyes, experiment with fun colors or new techniques, like a cat eye liner shape, or a smokey eye.

    After finishing your eye and face makeup, move onto your lips. If you're focusing on them, try a bold color like bright red or a deep color like wine or berry. If you'd like a light makeup look, you could use tinted or untainted balm, or a light gloss. If you want to wear a little more makeup and have some more upkeep, exfoliate your lips either with a wet rag or a lip exfoliator, then apply a balm or primer. After letting this soak in, wipe off any leftover product, and apply your lip liner, either clear, a color matching your natural lip, or an exact match to your lipstick or stain. Then apply your desired lip color, and rock it!


  • Don't forget to blend. There is nothing more unattractive than a line of foundation at the jaw. Make sure to take the foundation down to your neck.
  • DO NOT GO OVERBOARD! Don't put on fake eyelashes, blue eyeshadow, bright pink cheeks, and red lipstick. Looking natural is the sexiest.
  • Using makeup brushes can make application easier, in addition to keeping your fingers clean. Also consider using a makeup sponge like the Beauty Blender or Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. Makeup brushes come in all price ranges, from generic brands at drugstores, to e.l.f. $1 and $3 brushes, to Real Techniques, to Sigma, Mac, and other high-end brands.
  • If using eyeliner, make sure to put it on top and/or bottom! Also, use mascara. Curling your lashes it a plus, too.


  • Never sleep with makeup on! This will clog your pores and make you break out big time!
  • Always wear sunscreen! You will be happy you did in the future.
