    Start with your foundation. The key to a makeup parody is to be hilarious. So, when you apply your foundation, use something that is five times darker than your normal skin color. Say something like, "First, you want to start with a nice, tan foundation that gives you a really glowing complexion. " Have a hint of sarcasm as you say this. Also, apply the makeup with your fingers. When you do that, say, "Real makeup artists use their fingers." Make sure it looks really streaky. After you applied it, say how beautiful it looks.

    Now for the fun part. Eye makeup. First you want to pick out some color combinations that look like horrible together. Like blue and black and yellow, red, brown and green, pink, black and gold. Be creative and have fun with it. When you put on eyeshadow, use your fingers and smudge it on. Make sure you do your under eye, brow bone and lid. After you put that on, you can say something about how it really compliments your eye color.
