Definitely get a good foundation- one that won’t melt off or go on cakey. The ones that give a photo finish will be a good investment. If you can spurge I suggest givenchy photo perfection or Dior air flash, a more budget friendly alternative is revlon photo finish.

In addition, a concealer if you need which can also double as the eye shadow base/primer. In terms of blush, a soft pink or peach depending on your skin tone. 

If you want dramatic lashes, consider false lashes other wise a voluminizing mascara. I like Dior or mayballine. What color is your eyeshadow? Are you planning a subtle look or a more dramatic look? 

Also, if you can buy a set of brushes- the makeup goes on much better with the brushes than with the sponges and stuff that come withe some cosmetics.

I also plan on doing my own makeup..

A good tip I read is to make sure that your foundation doesn’t have any SPF in it.. apparently it can look weird with flash photography!
