Hi! I'm 27 and novice at makeup! My makeup is usually very basic:

Eyes: a light wash (sometimes add shadows on crease and eyebone) and mascara (the outer V and the eyeliner are challenges to me! I'm glad I found some tutorials here).

Lips: nude lipgloss or lipstick.

Face: powder and blush (sometimes I use foundation too).

So... I decided to improve/reinvent my makeup (especially my eye makeup)! I started by buying some new things to try (I based my purchase on some reviews I read):

Eyeshadow (Quads):

- Milani - Dream Baby Quad

- Milani - Earthly Delights

- Jane - Browns Quad

Eyeshadow (Singles)

- Jane - Sungloss

- Milani - Illusion

- Milani - Antique Gold

- Milani - Java Bean

- Milani - Sun Goddess

- Milani - Classic Beige


- Jane - Blushing Petal

- Maybelline - Dream Mousse in Soft Plum


- Maybelline - Full 'N Soft in Very Black

I also bought some lipsticks and lipglosses (by Revlon, Loreal, Neutrogena, Almay, and Rimmel)

I already own powder (Mineral Physicians Formula - I tend to breakout), foundation (Almay), and a few eyeliners that are waiting for me to be used -lol. I also have some cheap e.l.f. brushes I bought at drugstore.com

Now, I only need to figure out how to combine all these things and how to apply them!
