For intense lip products, I like makeup remover wipes, because it takes it right off and there is no scrubbing involved. For intense eye looks, I like dual-phase removers like Lancome Bi-Facil, because it gets everything off without a fuss. Generally, I use a cleansing oil (like shu uemura’s), which works well to get most makeup off (even intense eye or lip makeup) but may not get into the nooks and crannies.

I haven’t used self-tanner in years, mostly because I’m already medium in color and I tan super, super quick during the summer (even with sunscreen!). I just don’t have the patience or desire to work with self-tanner. Besides, it’s so cold out, I’m always wearing pants or tights!

If they don’t have ANYTHING, then I’d probably suggest the Wet ‘n’ Wild Color Icon Trios, which are pretty good bang for your buck–but you don’t have to feel guilty about practicing with them. It also helps you figure out what you like/dislike. I also like Urban Decay’s Naked Palette or theBalm’s Nude ‘tude Palette (though with as many matte shades, I’d say maybe it could be more difficult).
