this is so beautiful!
Had some more time in the morning and decided to try out something more colorful than usual. I didn't have a concealer or primer to use underneath the eyeshadow but I feel that this makes it more suitable for work also. I don't like using foundation because it feels cakey and too heavy on my skin, but without it my skin feels dull and uneven ... So CC very W!!!

I'm sorry if this wasn't the right place to post this!
You definitely look fair with pink undertones. Do you sunburn easy? Best place to start is finding out skin tone and undertone. What are you looking to start purchasing first?
Makeup is all about personal preference! Since you're a beginner, I would get cheaper makeup with lots of options so you can play around and figure out what YOU like. Like, elf blush palettes are nice, I've heard good things about their larger eyeshadow palettes too. I might even get a lip palette (NYX has some I believe) to figure out what lip colors you like and then you can buy individuals of the stuff you love. I'm not big into heavy base foundation, just a bit of concealer girl myself and I personally think that's most flattering but hey do you if you want to try foundation. Other than those color makeup, get some mascara (essence is great and affordable) and a black liner, a white, and a brown and/or nude. I feel like those are the basics.
I have no idea why this came out as orange because I wanted to do yellow, lol! But I like it.
I have an Instagram where I also post looks. It’s @deardomika.
this is so beautiful and summery!
Wow this is gorgeous! What camera are you using? Love the quality!
Those colors look SO GOOD with your brown eyes. Like wow. Stunning.
This makeup represents the golden hour of a sunset. So pretty!
This is soooo pretty!! 😍
These eyelashes really flatter your eye shape! Are they only half eyelashes?
CC: It might just be the lighting but that foundation shade seems a little pale on you. Bronzer, blush, and contour would help bring back dimension to your face
I agree with the other poster about using a blush. I think a light pink blush would look great. I really love this eye makeup, I might actually try and recreate it tonight! :)
So pretty! I would hazard to say that the darker green and pink on eye to the right isn’t the same kind of pastel tones and kind of sticks out to me, so next time maybe try keeping everything the same sort of vibe! But it is a cool idea and the blending is impressive!
Your left eye is screaming powerpuff girls, i love it! I love both of the color sets you used on your eyes but i feel like one is deeper tones and the other is more pastels and it clashes a tiny bit, but otherwise? Gorgeous.

I've been wearing the ABH Luminous Foundation for a week now, and I have to say I really like it! The color matches very well in person, so I'm blaming the mismatch on my mineral sunscreen. The finish is great for my normal to dry skin, and I can apply it with my fingers, which is my preferred application. The wear is also decent. I do notice less coverage at the end of the day, but it's not patchy or creasy. Overall, I'd give it a thumbs up!
Also, I'm planning to swatch all of the indie eyeshadows I have fairly soon because swatches on deeper skin are close to non-existent.
How do you think this would work on skin with dry parts and an oily nose? I’m interested in replacing my L’Oréal fresh wear foundation for something cruelty free so I’m looking at this and the new fenty hydrating one 😊
Living for this eye look! And your skin looks flawless 👌
Looks great, I love the eyeshadow!
You look beautiful! So flawlessly put together. I’ve been looking for a new foundation for about a year now, do you think this would look good on skin that has dry patches with an oily t-zone??
That pink eyeshadow is a gorgeous color with your skin tone!
Your skin looks great!
Personally, I'd do a tiny bit less of the eyeshadow in the tear duct and then under the eye, but that's just me. I love the lid.
