Hi bees! <br />I’ve never worn makeup in my life, aside from mascara at my high school graduation. <br />My family and friends say I JUST HAVE TO wear makeup… What are some good dieas that are very minimal?… I live in a small town, so going to a Sephora or anything…

Haruyou: Start practicing with cheapy drugstore brands (like 99 cents). See see what you like and what looks best on you. You can always upgrade to quality products later. There are tons of tutorials on YouTube for wedding day makeup.

I rarely wear makeup too used to wear it alot but not so much now. Why do you need to wear it? Just curious

Haruyou: since you’re not used to seeing your face with makeup, I highly recommend that you start experimenting with soft, pale colours and apply with a light hand. Going too dark or too heavy might turn you off makeup. Good luck and have fun!

First, do you want to wear makeup? You don’t have to, if you don’t want to.
If you do want to wear some makeup, I would do it yourself and keep it minimal. Maybe a little blush, a little mascara and a light lipstick. You could try those and see how they feel/look and decide if you want more or less.
I don’t wear makeup on a daily basis, but I do wear it when I get dressed up. For my wedding, I did my own makeup and actually learned quite a bit about makeup in doing some trial runs.

Blush, tinted lip balm ,a little brow powder color to your brows if the are really light (get a brow and mustache wax) concealer under your eyes to brighten them , mix a foundation with face moisturizer so it does not feel heavy on your face( NO SPF IN EITHER foundation or moisturer) and mascara

When I don’t want to wear makeup, I usually use BB cream instead of foundation just to even out my skin tone. Then mascara and lip gloss. I think Simplyjess: gave you some really good tips!

BB creams are a great way to start with a “foundation-y” type of product. I managed a salon in college (along with working in bridal!) and did make up on people as well. Garnier makes an excellent BB cream that I swear by.
To bump it up- grab a peach toned blush. Peach is one of those universal colors that flatters all skin tones! NYX is a great drug store brand for cheap blushes!
I love tintes lip balms too- you can never go wrong with a berry shade (something a few shades darker than your own lip color)
Throw on some mascara after you curl your lashes (YOUTUBE for curling lessons!!) and you’ll be a brand new woman.
Let us know what works!!

Thank you all!! I NEVER wear makeup. Like, nothing. I just started to have a face moisturizer… I will try a BB!! Sounds like what I need… <br />How do you get used to having makeup on? I always thought it looked heavy… I want to look like me still and be comfortable still…

i would make the trip to the mall so a makeup artist can teach you how to do a very light and natural application and suggest a few products.

Haruyou: it’s only heavy if you use a heavy hand! On the BB – I put a dab the size a pea on the back of my hand then rub it with my fingers in a circle to warm it up and make it a little bit more fluid-y before I apply it. It does come out thick first but don’t let that put you off!

- Wedding: A very pretty church.
Haruyou: Why would you use it if you don’t need it? Just curious.
Be aware that makeup can mess up your skin and you will need to get good at removing it effectively as well as the whole cleanse, tone and moisturise malarkey.
I am guessing you are naturally lovely and/or very confident if you have never fallen victim to the beauty trap and may I say how very impressive that is!
I’m not sure I would go for a wet foundation (even a light bb cream) from nothing, probably more a mineral foundation (powder) and light blush, but it really is up to you, I’m usually makeup/moisturiser/everything free so BB feels much heavier than light powder to me. I also think it take more skill to blend wet than dry. Keep your lips moisturised and pretty with a slightly tinted lip balm/stain and do a nice natural colour mascara (brown if your lashes are fair).
Only if you want to!
This video uses BB cream and some other basic techniques
Do make sure your foundation matches your skintone! Not sure of your colouring but ‘fair to medium’ can mean many different things. If there’s a tester available check it out on your skin.

Taiki: I just think that I should do something a little extra special, y’know?… Just something light is all. <br />My under eyes are very bad. Like, it looks like I haven’t slept in months. They are dark and almost purplish? What can I do for that, especially?… That is what I’m worried about for the big day, that I will look beat before the day even starts! 🙁

Haruyou: don’t laugh but I’m gonna again suggest Garnier lol (I bought a combo pack) they make a tinted under eye roller. It has a good tint to, easily can be blended out with your ring finger and has caffiene to get rid of puffiness!
They also make some without tint for those no make up days. Or if your like me I keep one stashed in my purse for those really bad day… Lol!
