sure. try everything to see what colors and shades work on you. after you know your colors, it is easy to pick out things that will give you a rosy glow, make your eyes pop, etc. good luck

If budget is your priority then I would keep it simple. I do have a variety of eye shadows, but honestly I probably only use 4 different shades on a regular basis. I also mainly only use black eyeliner and mascara (so the charcoal and brown ones just collect dust half the time). For my cheeks I like a check stain. It last longer than blush and works better too (at least on my skin and I am iight-skinned, but with olive undertones).   For lips, again keep it simple. I really only use a lip balm, plain gloss, pink/coral matte gloss and one red lipstick. Do I use other things like teal eyeliner sometimes? Yes totally! But not all that often, so if you want  a basic set up and save money while you're at it I would just focus on basics that you can use all the time. Good luck! Tracy

i honestly prefer drugstore products. i do have a few things from bath and body works and philosophy, but honesly drugstore brands work for me! and they are soooooooooooooo much cheaper. i love maybelline new york, eyeslipsface, hard candy, loreal paris, iman, covergirl, madgabs, wet n wild, rimmel london, and and forever 21. you can get makeup anywhere from Walgreens to Sephora to Forever21 to Claire's.  below is a list of colors good for olive skin. blush- plums, red-browns, and rosey-pinks eyes- golds, greens, aquas, purples, and blues are good shadow options. black, navy, and gray are good liners. mascara should be black.  And always add a off white shadow to your brow bone. lips- browns, caramels, and brick red
