I dont know how to change my make-up

I wear almost the same make up everyday, I have for years. I wear powerder my face, put a little blush on, and go crazy with my eyes. I put on a lot of eye liner, dark eye shadow, and then a sencong color on my eyes as well. Normaly black, grey, silver, brown and I'm pretty bold with it.



Thats the thing. I LOVE bold make-up. I cant help it. I just dont look right with it not crazy. It's my trademark so to speak. MY friends and family Joke and call me 'Mrs.Lovett' all the time, since the tim burton one came out. Anyways So It's very hard to change. But I work in Filming and when I meet people who may sign me on and help pay for my filming stuff, I need to look a bit more professional make-up wise.



I want to keep my boldness though. Any Idea's of what I can do please!?

try a natural look. For this look you could do a BIT of brown eye liner THINLY! lol. and a eye shadow thats 2 tones darker than your skin colour. Then, you can add mascara.For the lips try a nude colour or a light pink. I actually think you'll look good with this. And maybe a bit of light light pink blush.

you could keep the eyeliner...maybe not as thick and try bolder eyeshadow maybe like smoky eyes and a little liner with a pinkish nude lip gloss and you could try a little bornzer if you want..so u can keep your bold style

Possibly use a neon color eye shadow, and liquid eyeliner. Fake eyelashes help define your eyes.



And for your face use a liquid foundation and powder.



Hope it helps.

Tip: if you have a wide jaw you can always use a slightly darker shade of blush then what your skintone is around your jaw line,

I agree with LoveAndFear, I think you would look good with a natural look - although my version of the natural look would include black eyeliner, not brown, applied only on the upper lid (a decent amount, not teensy bit, not crazy thick) with black mascara (curl those lashes!) and the blusher wouldn't be a maybe, but a total must. For this look, don't do anything with your lips but sheer gloss or lip balm. If you feel the look is incomplete, don't be tempted to line your lower lid black, too. Instead, apply just a tad of mascara and some subtle white eyeliner on the waterline, it opens the eyes a bit more and gives you some contrast.



Since you said you wanted to keep your boldness but maybe make it look a bit more professional, the natural look might not be for our Mrs Lovett (great nickname if you ask me! :))



So here are ways to be bold, but with class and a more mature touch!



-never ever ever EVER line your eyes all the way. Not only does it look highly unnatural, it's not even flattering in a dramatic and cat-eye sort of way. It's just a teenage mistake, and I have been there and am still sometimes tempted, but just DON'T. Instead, never go more than two thirds in on your lower lid. If you MUST line the upper lid far or all the way in, then let it be a VERY thin line that sits right on top of your lashes on the inside and gradually make the eyeliner thicker towards the outside.



-use a soft, clean eyeshadow brush to smoke out the eyeliner on your lower lid a bit, but don't overdo that either. Line the waterline with white if you want - all the dark eyeshadow and -liner can make your eyes look small and deep set.



-use black eyeshadow only right above the lashes, concentrating on the outside. Blend this into a colour of your choice, like plum, dark green or whatever compliments your eyes. Do not bring this colour too far towards the inside of your eye. Then blend this colour out a bit with some greyish shade and then blend THAT into some highlighter that you apply on your brow bone. The blending and getting the colour to fade into the gray/"white" area properly without going too high is the main thing here.



-don't wear fake lashes unless you are going to a party or something like that - at least let it be dark outside. It doesn't really look all that professional when people can see that you are gluing fake lashes on your face on a Monday at 9 am. Just give those lashes a wee curl and some mascara and you are good to go.



-if this is your daytime look, your blusher should be subtle and your lips should wear nothing other than transparent lip balm.



Finally, the underrated feature many people forget: eyebrows. Making sure they are plucked and trimmed right goes without saying, but many people go way too thin, which looks so incredibly unnatural and immediately un-classy. Brush the eyebrows into shape by brushing the hairs nearly straight up (next time your mascara is empty, give the wand a thorough cleaning and you can use that for the brows). Then take a eyebrow pencil that matches your hair colour (or maybe a shade darker if you are fair and your eye make up is dark) and trace the shape of your eyebrows with light, short little strokes, making the colour more intense and filling in the gaps so they look nice and full.



Nice eyebrows are almost more important to your face than nice eyes - they are the frame of our features and what separates a pro-looking make up from an amateurish one!



Okay, that was a total rant here ^^ Hope I didn't bore you and some of it helped. :)
