For a beginner who has never done make-up before, just some good moisturizer, sunscreen and toner would be a great routine to prep and protect your skin.
1. Use a thin layer of foundation.
2. Use concealer if you have under eye circles or to hide anything uneven.
3. Use eye-liner, mascara and one color over eye lids if using eye-shadow.
4. Use lip balm or lipstick to end the look.
