Wearing makeup for the first time...What do I need to know? D:

Hello everyone!
I've been wearing Lolita for over 4 years now, but I've never actually worn any makeup with it. Heck, I've never worn makeup in my life. Aside from blush.
I guess the reason for me not wearing makeup is because makeup is so darn hard to put on, and I like how my face looks naturally (aside from a few flaws xD)

But lately I've been feeling like I should give makeup a try. I think I could really level up as a lolita if I did. I've seen so many girls who can do amazing things with makeup, and I wanna try enhancing my looks too!
And since I'm no longer a College student anymore, I have time to practice! So even though makeup is really hard to put on...I wanna keep practicing til I get it right.

Now that I have the determination to do it, I'm wondering what products are needed for that lolita/kawaii/dolly look?
I kindddd of have a generally idea(ish)? But not reallyyyy~ I really don't know anything. All I do in the morning is wash my face. o-o

I've seen transformation videos, and makeup tutorials...But I don't really understand the products. *-*;
Like whats the difference between foundation and concealer? I suppose there not the same thing?

I guess I'd just like a list of ALL mandatory products I should pick up if I want to achieve this look.

(I should also point out that I'm mixed race, so I have brown skin. I'm not sure if that changes anything? But yeah. Lol)

Thanks everyone! T_T;
