First thing to think about is of course foundation. Everything starts with buying foundation. Of course choosing foundation for your skin type is not that easy as well as choosing any other make up. But still with foundation you need to be careful because it is a base for the rest of your makeup. Basic tips are: try to choose foundation which tone is closer to your neck. And if you have any doubts about the tone of foundation you are going to buy then get a foundation that is one tone lighter. And when you try foundation in a store - let it dry a little and do not make a decision right away (you might regret that at home).
The next important thing is of course an eye makeup. The basic elements here are eyeliner, eye shadow and mascara. And each element is important because even a slight change of your eye makeup can dramatically change the entire look. Of course eye shadow has to be matched with the color of your eyes - once again the internet can give you a serious help here. There are many different websites that have special tables matching different eye types and eye color with eye makeup. Some of the web sites even have special programs that allow to upload your photo to a web site and try several different looks that eye make up can give you.
The next stage of your makeup is lips. In most cases it is the part of your face where you can easily experiment with different colors to achieve the look you want. But there is a major question about lipstick or lipgloss usage. Although lipstick is still the most popular makeup for lips lipgloss usage is getting more often these days. And with latest achievements of modern technology lipgloss usage can give you a little more than just a make up. Of course the main task of lipgloss usage is making lips more glossy but modern makeup manufacturers also add special components so the lipgloss (some lipsticks also have this quality today) can provide moisturizing effect to lips which is very important. If your lipstick or lipgloss do not give you moisturizing effect then you should use special Lip Protector before applying lipstick or lipgloss. Most of these lip protectors also contain vitamins which can be necessary especially in cold seasons.
To choose the lip color you can also use special tables (as for the eye makeup) that are easily available on makeup web sites. Of course variations in color are much wider for lips. And you also need to understand that different color tones can make your lips look bigger or smaller - so you can use that effect to get the right look for your lips. There are many other tips about choosing and applying lipstick or lipgloss so try to read them - that will allow you to get the perfect look and complete your entire makeup.
