The wonders of make-up

I don't know much about make-up, but I love it anyway, I want to learn more, get the tips and tricks. Because it is fun working with with that being said...Just wanted to show my "clean", and...hrrm...blemished face, haha, with a super dry T-zone (help me!) . and then an after picture with my make-up on. Thank god for make-up, I look horrible without it. :P I often go to work without "my face"-on and feel comfortable, because I don't care really what I look like.
Who am I making myself pretty for? right? But as soon as I get a glance of myself in the mirror, I'm reminded that I really look like shit. haha! I look really tired...So, I do it for myself. It's nice to feel pretty sometimes, am I right?! Jason's not around so...if he was, I'd look pretty for him of course.

I would love to get some make-up tips from you guys! Or let me know what your favorite make-up products are? 
I'm really free-styling here.

Personally Jen, you've gone the kind of 'natural beauty' that most girls would envy(thanks to those combined heritage genes:)and are very fortunate to look like that!

Blemished? Where do you see blemishes on your face? Honestly, you're so gorgeous without any make up on! I'm jealous haha, I haven't taken a picture without my makeup since I was like 13, let alone posting it on my blog!:)

You look beautiful either way! I have terrible dark circles under my eyes, i feel like a zombie w/o makeup lol. I think you should try out a bold lip/lipstick along with the pretty cat eye that you have on. I love a bright fuschia, or even a tangerine lipstick for a pop of color and keep everything else natural. Have you tried a highlighter right underneath the brow bone and on the cheekbone? It's very subtle but really brightens and wakes the face up! I love The Balm's 'Mary Lou Manizer". Sorry for rambling, but I hope you find these tips useful! I'm a freelance makeup artist and have clients that are new to makeup all the time!

Aww, you are too hard on yourself, you look beautiful with and without the makeup. I do understand how you feel though, I feel like I look absolutely horrid without makeup since I have really pale (and scarred) skin and really blonde eyelashes/brows. I love the shade of blush and lipstick, it looks really good. I'm not a makeup expert, I use the same 2-3 products over and over again, I'm very boring. What brand of lipstick is that?
