I have been experience with make up for a weeks now and I love it. I am going to an event this weekend, along with doing a photo shoot and I could use some advice.

Is it always best to use darker shades on my skin tone for eyeshadow? (Such as purples, lavenders, earthy greens)

For lips, I wanted to try the Nude color, so does that mean I would have to use the lip concealer?

Hello! As any skin color in my opinion, the more color you want on your eyes, then you should go for the "darker" colors. But if you want a more natural look, stick to a color that looks similar to your skin tone.
As for lips, I would recommend not using concealer as the main lip color because most of the time it makes you look "washed-up", maybe use the concealer to mute the original color of your lips and add a bit of color to the lips (peach, pink) to make it a little more colorful (still nude).

Hope this helps smile Good luck!
