Cheeks, Eye, Lips
Alright ladies, do not be led by the makeup counter. Buy items that are you and who you are now.
If there is one piece of advise that I can give you, it is to buy makeup according to your lifestyle. If you are a busy mom, you don't have time to rummage through drawers looking for the right color to go with the outfit your going to wear. Do not let others dictate who you really are and how you want to be projected into the world. Stay true to you.
I reserve my color for my lipsticks, glosses, tints etc.
A neutral pink blush that is not too cool and not too warm.
Lip Pencil, neutral, warm, cool and mix it up
Foundation for even coverage if needed
Power to combat shine and refresh
Eye shadows that are neutral but give POW to your look when warranted.
