I barely wear any makeup and my school photo this year was really disturbing, my friend compared it to a picture of my brother, and said we looked exactly alike. Ew.
How can I do my makeup in an interesting but not over the top way that will reflect my artistic personality and make me look really feminine? My face shape is oval, I have fair cool toned skin and red hair, thanks! XOXOXOXO

Well personally I have an oval face too and its super annoying because my baby fat never left my face. I'm skinny but my face tends to have a little chub and barely noticable cheekbones. I just try to compliment the little things that I do have and accentuate them a little more. Just like you hvae to try different clothes on to find the right one to fit your body type, you have to do that with makeup.
My hair was red for a little while and I had to find the right makeup for it. It was hard and I had to do some reseach. Here is what I found.
EYES: I'd say wear some mascara, a little bit of eyeliner to accentuate your eyes. If you wanted to go a little futher then you can wear eye shadow. Warm( browns and metalics) but light shades because you don't want it to look like you have a black eye or anything. I don't like unnatural looks and I don't like taking off makeup and looking like a differnt person or an alien. ha ha Make sure the colors compliment your skin tone.
LIPS: There is nothing more complimenting on a person than a great smile and nourished lips. SO keep them hydrated and soft by drinking water and moisterizing them. Then to add a little bang find a lipstick that is close to your lip color and apply it very lightly. Just enough to add a little color and stand out a little more. You want it to kind of stain your lips to add the color and then wipe it off a little bit so it doesn't look like your lips are all gunked over.
Remember to keep everything light though and also you have to try out different things. I found the right shade of lipstick by buying random $1 ones at walmart and trying each one of them out at home. If I didn't like it then not much money wasted and I was one step closer to finding the right shade. haha
Wearing makeup doesn't make you fake. It accentuates and brings out your beauty. Just don't over do it like a lot of girls I've seen have.
