I have fair skin, green eyes, and brown hair. I'm on a budget too. I just need make up ideas. Like foundation, eyeshadow, etc. Thanks and appreciate it too. Oh and I wanted to know what fake tanning products would help me get a nice healthy summer glow. I'm on the pale side but now like snow white.

In all honesty, I think that so much depends on age. I am 37 and trying to find products, especially foundation is harder than dealing with my two teenage daughters. :)

I also have fair skin and brown hair, and my eyes are brown and green. I generally wear neutral eyeshadow colors - mostly browns. One thing that I do LOVE is eyeshadow that is wet and dry. What you can do is apply it dry to the lid and apply it wet like an eyeliner. When wet, eyeshadow is more intense. I know that Mary Kay sells this type and I love it. Unfortunately, I can't afford it right now. Big sigh! One thing that you might try is going to a department store and having a makeover. Be upfront and let them know that you are NOT going to purchase anything. It shouldn't matter. I did this before and it worked great. I also really enjoyed Lancome products and a little goes a long way! Their "fake" tanners work well too. I used Avon tanning products in the past and they were good as well.
