Buying makeup at a store can be so intimidating and overwhelming if you are not knowledgeable about makeup (or have trouble saying no.) The sales people can really push you to buy stuff that you don't need, or god forbid does not look good. My advise is to take a friend that knows her stuff. i did my friends makeup in Barney's standing in the middle of the makeup floor... with three brushes, six products and it took in 20 minutes. It really does not have to be a big production to look pretty! She wanted a pretty day look and I think we found it.
Chanel eyeliner, 2 eye shadows lid/contour, foundation & concealer, lipstick & blush! That's it kiddies. Keep it simple.
