NEW TO THE BEAUTY WORLD!
im just starting to take an interest in makeup/fashion. i think that i might need some tips along the way. anyone have any tips for starters? what makeup items do you need? what clothing apparel do i need to own? my wardrobe consists of mostly t-shirts and 2 crop tops for the summer. for my bottoms, i would have shorts (jeans) and flexible gym shorts as well for the summer. for the winter, i only own sweaters & sweatshirts. also, i have longer pairs of jeans (a blue one and a black one). i want to funk up my wardrobe, but i need some ideas. i asked my friend from school thats really into fashion & makeup, and she told me to get cardigans and a blazer. whats in style right now? should i subscribe to any beauty-related web-sites online for better details on what to get? keep in mind that im limited to what i can buy, since i do have a budget. /:

Congratulations it'strulytiffany. The world of beauty is always full of excitement and constant change.
I completely agree with tallwoman in giving in to FADS. Depending on your body's frame and your height there are many styles that would compliment your figure. Just because something is in doesn't mean that it will be in for you. I've found so many trends that would not look good on me because I'm too short so I improvise. I recommend getting to know your body. Test different looks and cuts on your body. Once you have found the perfect cut and shades that complement your skin tone you will be set for life.
Blazers and cardigans are great investments because you could throw them over any camis, shirts (even casual) and blouses and you're good to go. Blazers are great to dress anything up or down, depending on the material and cut you get. I love to get a long and short blazer. Short blazers are great to throw over dresses or skirts and could even make you look taller if you're more petite. You could find affordable ones at department stores, H&M or Forever 21. Although the quality wouldn't be that great, you could try it for awhile and see how you like that look. Once you're comfortable, you could invest in a more expensive blazer that is tailored to your frame.
Some trends for Fall 2011: mustard hues, polk a dots, maxi skirts, lace, plaids, choker necklaces, chunky sweaters, bright colored pants.
Trends for Spring 2012: pastels, drop waist dresses and tops, abstract art and prints, matte satin, and ocean inspired prints.
Makeup for Spring 2012 is looking bright and bold. With classic red lips and modern cat eyes re-appearing this season spring just got exciting. Other looks on runways are played up brows, pops of color, doll lashes, glittery eyes, and nude lips.

I hope this helps!

Hi I'm not too sure what to suggest for clothing, but I know that I always have a bunch of accessories (belts, scarves, jewlery, headbands) that i keep around to add a little kick to a plain outfit. Bold colors are really in so a pair of skinny jeans or jeggings in a bright color like cobalt blue or if you're feeling really bold red are great. I actually have a pair in a burnt orange color called gingerbread from pacsun. (they have a holiday sale going on now) Cardigans (from target or forever 21) in different colors and a simple sweater dress are also great to have on hand in the winter and colder months to just throw on. As far as makeup, if you have good skin and you don't want to put on a lot of products , I would just go with maybe a tinted moistuizer and cream blush for the face, mascara and a shimmery nude color for the eyes, and a lipstick or stain. If you want something with more coverage, I really like neutrogena'
