The Dos

* As with any make-up, blending is the key.

* Keep your make-up light for school. You don't need to use make-up on every facial feature you have! Mix and match to find out what looks best on you.

* As a first step to any successful makeup, always start with your complexion: erase imperfections.

* First test a foundation color by applying a thin line of color to the jaw line. This will allow you to compare color to the skin on the face as well as the neck to avoid any obvious differences. The color should blend perfectly with your skin tone.

* If you're going to use an eyeliner, a pencil liner looks more natural than liquid liner.

* Black/Brown mascara and eyeliner flatters most faces, blondes, brunettes, and redheads. Black is usually too harsh, especially for blondes.

* Pinks and peaches blush tones compliment almost any skin tone. Apply to the apple of your cheeks and blend outwards, towards your hairline.

* For luscious lips, lip gloss does the trick. If you want to add some color to your lips for a nighttime look, try a lipstick in a sheer color. For extra shine, put the lip gloss on over your lipstick. Always have lip balm handy for chapped lips.

* Clean your make up brushes and applicators often to reduce bacteria and oil.

The Don'ts

* Don't use a rich cream or foundation on oily skin. A heavy moisturizer or foundation will probably wreak havoc and cause pimples. Try using a light moisturizer or oil-free foundation.

* Don't over pluck your eyebrows. Overly plucked eyebrows look unnatural and make your eyes appear smaller.

* Don't wear heavy make-up in the summer. Heavy foundation will cake and melt off in the summer heat and humidity, leaving you with a streaked look.

* Don't choose dramatic colors for daytime looks. Neutral tones are the best for daytime
