Congratulations!

I got lost on the part of why you need this stuff? Don't try to impress people with stuff you can't keep up for the next 30,40,50 years (My Mom's advice) If I could just get away with they eye stuff, I would. If anything maybe get a few multi-purpose colors (like browns, peach that can go from eyes to cheeks to lips)

Good Luck!

I think I misuderstood. I thought you already use e/s. Still multi-purpose colors like above (bronzes, golds - if done very very lightly on the cheeks)

I just found a list of all the colors that *should* look good on anyone, I'll be back with it in a few.

I am not sure of the quality that makes anything in the pink red colors look bad on eyes...so I'd try to stay safe on that...

I am guessing you don't want to spend a lot of time applying/taking off and want a quick put together look. I saw a picture or tutorial somewhere about applying e/s to asian eyes, but do not know where.

For e/s...

Turquoise will look awesome on you, I am 99% sure.

Charcoal gray

Some do base first, some concealer....I use concealer first on stuff I know the base won't cover, then foundation, then concealer. It sounds like you may be able to use tinted moisturizer instead of foundation. It's lighter and a better place to start learning. I'm looking for the other e/s colors (or clothing colors) that should look good on everyone.

sometimes when you add a lil eyeliner on the shadow its really look diffrent

sometimes i like to use the shadowes as an eyeliners

cus blue relly look strong on me

you can put on it some glitters and it will look really nice too

Red is tricky for clothes and cheek color... If you cannot carry a yellowish red, you may be able to carry a bluish red. In my profile there *should* be a chart. I haven't tried it but I really don't think everyone can carry those colors, like the website said.

I don't know what website I took that from as I was just keeping it for personal use. If someone wants to put it as an attachment, it may be helpful to others. I'll have to delete it eventually.

As far as eyeshadows, I think you can get whatever colors you want!


You mentioned that you don't like your round face. You might want to purchase a bronzer and practice contouring so your face doesn't look as round if that's what you would like.


Also, you mentioned that you have good skin and are not used to wearing foundations. If you're going to buy a MAC foundation, I would recommend their "Face and Body" foundation since it is not as thick as some of the others.

Congrats on your upcoming Wedding!!I do think every gal should have a few basics in her arsenal. Here's what I suggest...

1. A tinted moisturizer and concealer that match your skin exactly.

2. A dark brown eyeliner

3. Yellow based Bronzer

4. Rosey Blush

5. A highlighter for the browbone and cheeks

6. Great mascara

7. Sheer gloss

8. A palette of nude shadows...ie beige, tan and dark brown

9. A palette of fun shadows...black, purple, blue...whatever you like.

At MAC you can create your own shadow palettes. Good LUCK!!
