Okay, I'm 17 and I can't apply makeup!

True. I just don't wear it everyday, only when I am in a theatrical production. I think I have the order right: Foundation, shadow, liner, mascara, blush, lipstick/gloss? My Mum has showed me, but I can never recreate it.

How do you apply shadow to really bring out med. brown eyes? I can never get that "dazzling" look.

Any makeup gurus please feel free to give me tips!

Here's a partial pic of my face. Bad lighting, though.

Watch some videos and just start playing around with makeup. That's how most women learn...trial and error.
Okay! I plan on experimenting when I don't have to go anywhere!

It really just takes practice. Start out with neutral colors for natural everyday looks as you learn techniques and gradually add more bold color when you become more confident in your technique.

Youtube does have great videos. Look for "gurus" that have similar coloring to yours. Also, if you want to invest in good makeup and tools, you can go to any MAC store or any makeup counter with trained makeup artists. They'll help you choose colors that suit your skin tone and show you how to apply looks for everyday or special events.

I often try a different look on each eye, sometimes really crazy stuff, and then go wash. I'm constantly looking for new techniques and products. Makeup is a lifelong learning experienc. And oh, so fun.
Like the others say: it's all about practice. I am a make up artist for ten years now, but I started as a teenager with experimenting with all kinds of looks.
Start with minimal products. You are still very young so you don't need much make-up to shine.

Since you have beautiful eyes that stand out, I'd say a kohl pencil and mascara are great to begin with. You don't have to make it difficult. Put on the mascara first, then take the (black) kohl pencil and put that gently on your inner (eye) rim. You can draw the line a bit longer to the outside of your eyes to create "cat"eyes (don't exaggerate, keep it subtle).

Blush can make a big difference in your overall appearance even if you keep it subtle. The easiest way is to use a lipstick with flattering colour for your skintone (maybe you can borrow one of your mom's) and just make a dot on both your cheeks and softly blend it outwards (!) with your fingertips. Be careful: stay on the outer sides of your face, don't put blush in the middle of your face.
And for the lips: gloss is great and very easy to apply.

You may always pm me!

Im 32 and only started wearing make-up in the last 2 years ...and even then, it isnt daily. Learned the basics from youtubers. Check out Kandee Johnson
(Kandee Johnson - YouTube) on youtube, she is a darling and really good at makeup tips.

I also learned a lot from experimenting. Most large chains offer "satisfaction guaranteed" so i have gone in and dropped 80$ on make up items i wanted to try out and then come back to actually return more than half od it when i figured out what actually worked for me.
