The Question Club
Okay, I don't wear make-up. Ever. Never have. I know as much about makeup as your average guy; I know what eyeliner is, I've heard of blusher, etc, but nothing specific. For Christmas my sister got me a session at the place she goes, I went along because I thought it would be cool, and I'm actually super impressed with the results. So I'm planning on getting a few basics to start playing with, pretty much base, eyeliner and lipgloss sort of thing.|
When the lady was doing the eyeliner, she said a mistake a lot of people who don't wear makeup very often/are new to it do is go straight for the black eyeliner, and that you're better off starting with something line black-brown or black-gray eyeliner, something softer. Their products were way too expensive, and I'm looking through a catalog of similar but cheaper makeup. However, when it comes to eyeliners I have the option of Black, Smokey Blue and Expresso Brown. The problem with the brown is that going by the photo it looks a weird light purple colour which doesn't look like it would work. So it's black or blue. I have blue-grey eyes.
I have very fair skin, and red/black/bleach hair. Will Smokey Blue make me look like I belong back in my home city, with six kids, a dog and three cars up on bricks?
