I really love the colors you picked. They work great with your coloring. I think you should go with a heavier foundation and use a primer underneath. And I’d try to add some more contouring with your eyeshadow. Try to go lighter on the lid and darker in the crease and outer corner. I’d also fill in your eyebrows with a darker color pencil. I love your lip color, it’s such a pretty shade of pink. And your lashes turned out great.

I think you might benefit from looking up a tutorial on how to contour your face with highlighting and shadowing, it will make it look like you have the perfect light wherever you are and will really make you look flawless in pictures! Just my two cents.

@unimeg07:  I think the make-up looks very natural. I would definitely recommend more color on the lips and a bronzer or blush. I also think you should use the dark color on your eyelids in the creases or from the center of your lid out to the corner of your eyelid. Then use the pink or a lighter shade from the center to the inside corner of your eyelid. You can use a brush to blend the colors together.

Critique it? Ok, please take it as helpful and not mean:

– you need a more full coverage foundation AND a concealer

– contour and highlight like a PP has shown above

– eyeshadows need lid, crease, browbone highlight and then blended

– eyebrows are important! I think everyone’s brows should be done when wearing a full face

* I think you should have someone in Sephora do your makeup and show you as they go along bc we are just listing things

– you are on the right track

Have you tried false lashes? I think they would really set off the look.

@unimeg07:  the eyeshadow looks great! Only thing I would recommend is maybe some fake lashes? It would really make your eyes pop!

@unimeg07:  I have very bad acne scars which are dark spots. 

I use:

primer first

foundation SECOND

concealer LAST bc you want to cover what the foundation does not and then you make sure it is all blended

@unimeg07:  

highlight and contour using powder or cream (whatever you’re comfortable with) and then put blush

 

contour and blush are two different things. I contour and highlight and then add blush last and then place finishing/setting powder and then a makeup setting spray.

Hope This Helps
