Hi ! I am a makeup artist and I am  DIYing my own makeup. My main focus is lashes( will be wearing falsies) and winged liner, really good foundation (photo ready by revlon is INCREDIBLE!) and a bold pink lipstick. As far as contouring, I love to add bronzer to my cheekbones, and circle around my face for more definition( I will be doing a light stroke because id rather focus on other features of my face instead). I wont be doing my nose or anything because I dont want my makeup too over done. The photo ready concealer will make me look flawless.

Hey there!  I did my own makeup and I have big cheeks!  I practiced highlighting/contouring a lot to try to slim my face.  I wore fake lashes and a nude/pinkish matte lip.

The products I used were …

– Makeup Forever HD foundation<br />- Urban Decay Naked Palette (original)<br />- Bare Minerals Warmth topped with a dash of NARS Laguna bronzer for contour<br />- Bobbie Brown blush in Coral Sugar<br />- Ambient highlight trio<br />- Stila eyeliner pen<br />- Anastasia brow pencil<br />- Tarte matte lip balm stain (in Exposed) topped by Bite Beauty lipstick in Musk<br />- 

Here was one of my practices:<br />

Watch makeup tutorials for contouring on Youtube.  Some of my faves are Sharon Farrell, Karissa Pukas, and Shannon Harris

Super late posting to the thread! But, I did my own makeup and had a lot of fun doing so. I really love makeup, so I already had a lot of things purchased that I wanted to use but, I would say you could probably spend around $100 for a good foundation, a beauty blender, some blush, and some concealer. I used Maybelline concealer, Christian Dior foundation, the Beauty Blender brand sponge, and a Smashbox blush. I think the beauty blender is awesome for getting a flawless look to your foundation. Sorry this photo is gigantic, but I just wanted to show you the finish I ended up with. It certainly doesn’t look professional quality, but I also didn’t have to spend $300.
