Reader Request: "Help!! Cocktail party make up"


I’m an avid reader of both your sites. I really love how personal you make each one. I’m writing you to ask for help, I have to attend a cocktail part at the W Hotel in Dallas. I’ll be going as a date to my boyfriend (who is very fashionable), he will be recieving an award from his job.

I am absolutely clueless about what do to for make up. I’m very pale, anglo, and will be wearing a little black dress and very understated accessories. I use Perscriptives for foundation and concealer, and Dior Show for my lashes, but everything else is lost on me. Can you help put togeather a little black dress look for me?

Thank you in advance for your time and any help you might be able to give!
