I have my hair and makeup trial in about two weeks. I have plenty of hair inspiration pictures but i’m falling flat on makeup inspiration. I’m not even really sure what I want besides a lot of definition for my eyes. I have dark dark dark brown hair, light hazel eyes, and very VERY fair skin which has been difficult to find pictures for. Anyone else like this or have similar inspiration pictures?

THANK YOU FOR POSTING THIS!
I was “google’ing” this the other day and had such trouble finding anything!! I hope we can get some inspiration!! I am the same as you but with Blue/Grey Eyes!
But I did find somewhere that Bobby Brown says you should wear only two shades darker than your skintone when it comes to lip color!! Even though Im dying to find the perfect RED lip color!

I have the same coloring, very fair skin, black hair and dark eyes.
I love the classic pin up look.

I have super-pale skin, dark hair, and blue eyes. I didn’t really have an inspiration pic, but love the classic pin-up look–just be sure to find the perfect red!
I went with a soft, natural look–light blush, tans/browns on the eyes, plenty of black mascara. For my lips, I used one of the Covergirl Outlast stains–I think the shade I used was called Flirty Nude, which is great if you don’t want to go with a traditional red or pink lip. It adds a nice flush but isn’t over-the-top.

I’m the same… dark brown hair, very fair skin, and light blue eyes. Here are my inspiration pics:
I’m going for a flushed cheek, natural pink lip, very defined eyes, and gold “smoky” shadow

@kitzy: I’ve looked at Mila Kunis a lot too and feel like some of her looks can work as well. Also, I’ve definitely looked at Zooey Deschanel too for inspiration and Alexis Bledel to an extent.
@CorgiTales: I love wearing gold toned eye shadows so I love seeing them in a more dramatic way. And I LOVE the pink lips.

You could try googling Dita Von Teese. She’s a little darker (I mean, she did marry Marilyn Manson) but she’s pretty and also has a pinup/burlesque style.
Black hair, pale skin, and it seems like she doesn’t wear dark shadows, but good falsies.

It seems like we have the same coloring and I went for a natural look. If I could do it over again I would go for red lips:)

I have very similar coloring and I have been looking at the same celebs. You can also try Liv Tyler and Anne Hathaway.

I have similar coloring too. I’ve googled Liv Tyler, and jennifer connelley for makeup inspiration. I’ve settled on using MAC NC20 foundation, smashbox Panorama eyeshadow (purple greyish trio) mixed with some gold shadow to bring out the hazel eyes, and sephora light pink lipstick and light pink blush.
