GT makeup savvy people, tell me what to do with my face

I've come to accept that there are things I'm good at in life, and there are things that I just can't do. Makeup is one of them. I just have no idea what to put on my face to make myself all pretty-like. However, many of you seem to know your way around a foundation brush. So, please tell me what to do with my face.

I'll post a few pictures of myself in the comments, with and without makeup, to give you an idea of what I'm working with.


My current routine is Maybelline Babe Skin instant pink transformer (full disclosure: I got this in China. I can't find an equivalent for the North American market EDIT: I think it's a knock-off too. Mine says Babe Skin, whereas all the Maybelline ones are called Baby Skin. Damn.), Lush Colour Supplement in light yellow on breakouts, red spots and under my eyes, Bourjois blush in Rose Frisson (it may or may not be 6 years old), and some Lush Feeling Younger skin tint to brighten my cheekbones. If it's anything more formal than work, or a night out, I'll wear some black eyeliner and mascara, and maybe a bit of Lush Sophisticated eyeshadow. I have a few lipsticks I like to wear, but I always forget to reapply throughout the day.

Anyways, what can I add to this to make my features stand out a bit more, or at least not look so bland all the time? I'd really like to get a new blush or a nice eyeshadow colour that I can wear for nights out. My eyes are green-brown. Any cool makeup application tips or suggestions are also super welcome.
