    Hi guys!
    Sounds silly but i'm pretty much a make up 'virgin'. I'm 17 but rarely wear anything day to day, usually just vaseline haha. I've got to the stage where I want to start wearing a little now, a light foundation, eyeliner mascara, lipstick etc. Where do I start though? I'm mixed race (quite light olive skinned, light pink lips and very dark brown eyes - along with my hair).
    Can anyone help me by recommending what would suit me or decent brands?
    Thanks for all responses!

    Maybe start with a BB cream or tinted moisturiser or something instead of going for foundation straight away.

    I would also go for a tinted moisturiser and for mascara I would go for a brown one so that it looks a bit more natural. I currently use a Becca foundation that is really a tinted moisturiser as its so sheer, its called luminous skin and I love it. The only problem is that Becca is pulling out of the UK so its very hard to find now
