    I don't know if I can posts links on the forum? But Lisa Eldridge has some great videos on her webpage showing how to do the basics

    If you want an idea of what your will look like, have a good look at how much make up the worker is wearing. They CAKE it on and will in turn cake it on you. I said before my friend does it (and is a qualified make up artist) but Ive seen her do her make up and she puts on at least 4 things before the concealer even goes on.....its astonishing how much make up people think it takes to look 'good'.

    I think a lot of hte time they HAVE to cake it on because they're there to sell you a product, not actually be fabulous make-up artists. I think it's part of their job to cake themselves in the product.

    Default Free makeup/over in department stores??

    It makes my face hurt seeing how much make up they wear! OP do you have any local Facebook pages, could you do a shout out for recs on make up artists in the area?

    I think it would put a lot of people off buying the product. I know it does for me. When I originally went to book for Napoleon a woman had gorgeous make up on, very subtle. But, of course, I got to my appointment and had someone with it smeared on like clown make up... and I looked like poo. Haven't bought it since because she was supposed to show me how to use it. No thanks!

    I agree. I didnt mean to offend any make up artists or anything. Was just saying if you want a realistic idea of how you will look, take notice of how much make up THEY are wearing.
    I also think some buyers would be shocked if they knew that the worker isnt always wearing JUST that brands products (even though its against the rules to).

    Oh yeah I'd never do some of the looks they do! Certainly not in a supermarket during daylight hours... maybe some of their looks are somewhat appropriate for clubbing with lots of darkness... lol.

    Thank you all so much for your replies! I feel so clueless
    You've all made me rethink though - I know the few times I've had makeup done, I've felt completely drag-queenish. I want to be comfortable, so I think the YouTube suggestion might be the way to go - I'd never have thought of that! If I can get a bit of advice how I'm meant to do it, I can do as little or much as I want.
