Baltimore, Maryland, US
I did my own makeup for both of the images here that I have on MM (I shot more images from that shoot but I have not received them yet). My issue is with the image that I have for my avatar.
I'm sure that I had put on a good amount of makeup for photography. Maybe it's the products that I bought.
Here's a list of makeup that I wore for that particular image:
L.A Colors "Glossy Lips" Sheer Lipgloss
NYX "Love in Rio"
Iman Cosmetics Luxury Radiance Liquid Makeup
Ulta Cosmetics Red Lipstick Shade number 202
Flori Roberts Corrective Concealer
I realize that I can hire an MUA but I need to know how to do my own makeup regardless.
If someone can recommend better products than what I used above, I'd gladly appreciate it.

Some of it has to do with the image itself.
If you post it in the critique section we can comment.

Meaning the quality is the issue, not your make up

The image does seem off as noted by others. I do notice you didn't have mascara ( although your natural is beautiful) it will help give a bit of form to the eyes. Also try a blush like NYX Red or Cinnamon, use a touch of both to add a bit more color to your well structured cheeks. I hope you find an amazing photographer because even with the bit of makeup you have on you will have a great port.
