Eyeshadow and eyeliner for sure. I love  subtle yet smokey eye look. I’ve got nice brown eyes and love to make them stand out more with the right colors and shades. Maybe once I reach the required post count I can show off a little. I’m no makeup expert, but I know my way around a brush set so to speak lol
I for one, could use all the help and information I can get!  I don't know how you ladies do that with your eyes, if I came even close with anything, they shut up like Fort Knox!

I’d be happy to lend tips. I’m only 28 but I’ve been playing with makeup since I was 10 and wore it frequently in high school. Like I said. I’m no expert, but I can get by lol

Thanks, for me you would have to write a manual "how to".  First I would need to know how to put anything on or around my eyes.  i can't even come close to them and the lids shut down for good!

Highlight and shadow the right areas. As for eyes closing when you bring the pencil or brush to your eye, try focusing strictly on your reflection. Your brain is naturally sending sensors to your eyes saying “something is coming in! Shut down!” I struggled with that for a while but after a lot of practice, I finally overcame it.

I have the additional problem that I have to wear glasses (a thing of old age), when I want to see something closer.  And glasses and the eye make up process don't compliment each other very well!

I still think that lipstick and lipgloss are what I like the most.

Mascara! And nail polish, too! My favourites are a fandango one and a scarlet one that belonged to my sister before she moved out.:)

Mascara is the one item that I cannot go without.
I can leave the house wearing only mascara and still feel confident! :)

Lippy - my normal go-to day brand/colour being Lipstick Queen - Morning Sunshine.

This is my day look for work. Matt foundation, blusher, mascara, brow liner and some lipstick.

I'll often go without any at weekends. X

My absolute make-up necessities would be: concealer, eyeliner, and an eyebrow pencil.
Also, every single time I do my makeup, even if it's full-glam or subtle I always use MAC Painterly Paint Pot as an eye primer. It really brightens up my eyes and I don't apply eyeliner without it. It helps to keep my eye makeup in place and simply brighten up my eye area.

I also love to use Guerlain's Terracotta bronzers in summer.

I also think the little hair barrettes are so cute!

            Speaking of hairstyles, having never tried/used makeup as a means to *passing* (aside from a sunscreen foundation), I have found Wen's Sweet Almond Mint cleanser to be the absolute best shampoo on the market by far am totally hooked! Not "ch e e p" @ $30+ per 16oz bottle it is the only one-step product, no "conditioners" needed, where I can swim in a chlorine pool and upon freshwater rinsing only can still comb my hair out with no problems at all! Used to be -> tangled knotted mess -> NO MORE (and I have very fine long hair which can reach from around my back!)

Quote from: Caution! First Use Is Very ADDICTING!
WEN® Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner is a versatile shampoo and conditioner replacement. It's light enough for baby fine hair, while still hydrating the thickest hair types. WEN® Sweet Almond Mint is the perfect intro to cleansing conditioners.
