i think a good way to find a new look, is to take someone shopping with you that has a style you like, but does not dress similarly to you. try to make sure they are similar in size and shape or you will only disappoint yourself. also i watch makeover shows on tv like what not to wear, and a makeover story on tlc, which shows you what kind of style looks good on certain body types. i also read magazines and watch music videos. when you go to the store pick out something that you say to yourself you would never try on. hope this information helps.
I get inspiration from magazines, FOTDs, TV...basically anything. if I see a girl with a similar coloring who looks pretty in her makeup (doesnÂ´t matter if itÂ´s a celebrity or a real life person) I try to copy that look.
still IÂ´m always dissappointed when a look that looks great on somebody else looks like crap on me. I still canÂ´t accept that I donÂ´t have a tanned J-Lo complexion *lol*
I'm always looking in magazines, but mostly at pictures of celebs with similar colouring rather than the make up pages. New products tend to inspire me too, but like a lot of people here I'm a make up junkie so I've almost always got something new to try.
