I need some help with makeup and hair, I feel like my makeup looks a little dated, and I kind of just steal my mom’s makeup lol. I’m 23 and I feel like I want to look more fresh, I don’t like using foundation cause it makes you break out and ages you. Any advice on how to look better?

I know this isnt helping, but I don't think you need to change anything, because you look pretty much perfect already. No need for foundation either, don't ruin your perfect skin! Your hair is amazing too!!

Wow, your skin is so clear and glow-y! You might be onto something with the whole not wearing foundation thing.

 

I honestly think you look really cute without makeup (I'm assuming the second pic is you barefaced?). You def don't need makeup, but if you want to wear it, I think a natural look (lip gloss, mascara, a little blush) would look best on you. That kind of looks like what you did in the first pic.

Yes, second pic is me barefaced. For my skin, I drink a shit ton of water, never touch it ( or atleast trying to a little less lol ) and I never wear foundation other than a little under my eyes sometimes when I’m going out.

wow i think you look amazing as is! i think the ultimate goal is not to need to wear any makeup. your skin looks so fresh and nice. if you want the only things a can say if you want you can play around with some highlighter, maybe eyeliner stuff like that, but you look gorgeous as is

Funny you mention eyeliner, I’ve been desperately failing on doing winged eyeliner lol. I’m just stuck doing this line over my eyes.

Omg you look like one of my friends you’re absolutely beautiful!!!
Personally to add a little spice to my look I go for mascara and eyeliner and a little bit of shiny eyeshadow if you wanna do more~~
I also tend to play with the shapes my eyebrows can do. Like thin, fluffy, thick, short pointy just to test it up| also tinted lip balm is never a bad idea I usually go for darker/ soft pinks and maroons and it’s only a little tinted so it’s like not too bold.

I think my friend (who looks like you) usually plays up her eyes with mascara and lighter glimmer eyeshadow she always looks so shiny it’s so pretty. Or sometimes she flicks a very small line on the outer part of her eye so pretty

I’m more of a full face kind of gurl but something fun that doesn’t need a full face is just eye makeup if you don’t want to play the foundation game I suggest buying a decent-ish pallete of colors you like that would match you (I have light brown/yellow tones skin so I go with like gold and reds) and just start watching YouTubers haha

Some days I wear 0 foundation and my eyes are done up with lashes.!!

Hope any of this was a lil helpful

Regardless of face and clothes, I've found that every person who fixes their hair until its shiny, done up and flawless looks like a model. That's the one defining trait I've seen that makes me think a person is really and truly pretty without realizing it.

You look so young for your age omg!! (Not that 23 is old, you just don't look it!)

 

Good call on the foundation, your skin is pretty much perfect anyways. One thing you could try is puppy eyeliner/emphasising the outer v of your eyes! In my opinion, it makes people look much younger and more fresh than other eyeliner styles (e.g. cat eyes).

 

Example:

You're absolutely stunning. I think you would suit winged eyeliner and red lipstick.
