When Ever You Apply any kind of The Make up on the Face Before That You Must Have to apply the Foundation base on the Face.You have to Choose the right foundation as per the Your Skin Tone.You Must have to always use the Branded Foundation.You also apply it in the Proper Manner Such as I apply it.Blend the cream foundation smoothly using a cosmetic sponge in long sweeping motions.When Every You Buy the Foundation first of all check the Shade of it on the Own Hand.It Gives the Idea of that it Match it With Your Face of not.

Hello all. I'm Joshica.This is my first post ever  I never used to wear makeup, at all, I never had to, but as I got older I developed dark spots around the mouth and eye area and I feel that I need to now b/c I do NOT like the look I have. I have no idea whether I'm warm, cool, what undertones I have. Is it OK to post a pic and ask you guys for help? I will post the most recent one, and please be gentle, b/c this is the pic that I looked at and almost cried b/c I realized how awful I look without makeup.  I wear lipstick, eyeshadow, eyeliner, blush, but the whole foundation thing is new to me. I also tend to sweat on my forehead which runs most foundation and makes it look yucky. I am open to suggestions, comments, and help of any kind.

 

Me without makeup..YUK.jpg

Warm, cool, or neutral: neutral leaning warm, yellow-beige undertone.
2. Brand and shade of foundations:

I don't know which brand of makeup yet. I am currently looking in to MAC brands. Any suggestions would be helpful. Toggling between colors though b/c I have no idea what color. I'm thinking about the NC 45 or NW 40, but without samples I have no idea, and I refuse to pay that much money for a mistake.

 

3. Brand and shades of concealers:

Also looking into MAC concealers. Question here, should it be lighter than my shade or darker? I know the question sounds silly, but I really do not know.

 

4. Brand and shades of undereye concealers (if different):

 

5. Do you use primer? What brand?:

I am looking in to MAC's  Prep + Prime for this

 

Any help is greatly appreciated because the whole foundation/concealer/primer is new to me.
