Plain to Pretty Makeup – Tips Needed!

Need Makeup Ideas for Date Night

MAC eyeshadows
brown mascara
lipsticks
I don’t wear that much makeup on a daily basis. I am devoted to moisturizer, sunscreen and Chapstick, but that’s about it. My friends and family must think I need to wear more of it because they’re always giving me free samples and makeup gifts! I’ve been so busy with preparing for my upcoming marathon, but we have a wedding to attend later this month and a date night next Friday. I can’t remember the last time we got to go on a real date and I'm excited, but feel that I should probably put on at least a little makeup.

I still want to look like myself; think I’d be too uncomfortable caking it on, but I have flipped through some looks and decided that as long as I don’t go overboard I should be ok. My ideas are to actually curl my hair at the urging of my best friend. She thinks that “loose waves” would look really pretty on me.

But she gave me a makeover the other day and I had on so much blush that I looked like a clown. I like the color duos of browns and golds and thought green eyeliner might be fun. What do you guys think? Also, my eyelashes are very straight so I know I’ll need some extra thick mascara; although, I think brown might look better than black.

I don’t know why I’m being so indecisive but some of your makeovers have inspired me to step outside my beauty box and try new colors. I saw some lipsticks I liked last time I was at ULTA and since I had a coupon, I went ahead and bought three colors just to try them out, but not sure if I like any of them!

If you guys have any tips for me, I’m all ears – wish me luck with my "new" look!

it's good to hear that you're stepping out of your comfort done and trying out new looks by using the virtual makeover! :) I totally agree with your friend and think that loose waves would look great on you!! This comment has been removed.

Have you tried any type of mineral makeup? It usually gives a really natural look. So you can get coverage or color without feeling like you're wearing a lot of makeup. This comment has been removed.
