On really, really special occasions (like graduation), then I will ensure really even coverage for face, neck, and shoulders (assuming what I’m wearing shows shoulders). I use something sheer and lightweight like MAC Face & Body.
Confidence is key! It’s true no matter the gender, but wear it because you want to, because it makes you feel confident and sexy and all things awesome. If you’re new to makeup and want to work your way up, try skin products (less noticeable) and eyeliner. Though generally, I think the majority of makeup tips you hear apply to all!
