OK, so the idea behind this look is that you are going to a nice restaurant (or maybe even just a restaurant!) and you want to look really pretty. Because you'll be eating food, drinking, and probably kissing, you'll want something that doesn't smudge. That's why I chose a long-lasting and non sticky lipstick. You can play around with the colors to suit your skin tone, but the general idea remains the same.
I need to get a new foundation but until I can afford it, I've been using BB cream from MAC in Extra Fair. Before applying anything, I used a sampler I had gotten from Christmas called Juno Transformative Lipid Serum. It directs to use morning and night for a nice glow. While its not the best "glow enhancing" formula I've seen out there, I did like how it made my skin feel. Very very velvety. Though it kind of smells like herbs, which is odd.
