Basics for a Newbie

 I am a makeup newbie and I was wondering what are some basics I should start with. I've played around with eyeshadows every now and then, but thats as far as it goes.  I would love to be able to pull off a look that does not look overdone, especially for every day.  My Sephora Beauty Profile is black/dark brown hair, dark brown eyes, dark complexion and oily/combination skin. Any tips or advice will be greatly appreciated! Smiley Wink

Always start with skincare. I would suggest maybe trying Boscia. Boscia is great all natural brand that I personally enjoy. 


Give the Oil-Free Must Haves kit a try. It's an $82 value, but costs $36! By buying a kit, you can consider this a test run. You don't have to get too invested in one particular line without trying it out first.


As far as color is concerned, I would recommend checking out the limited edition NARS kits at Sephora right now. They are packed with great products and are a great value! I personally enjoy the Fashion Icon set. It's a $78 value for only $59.



If you're not comfortable shopping by yourself, take a trip to your nearest Sephora location and ask about an Express Service. Someone will be very happy to assist you with any questions you may have. They will also be able to teach you how to apply your makeup and skin care.


Best of luck!
