All Body Shop projects follow the same basic rules: you use your texture as "paint" and your alpha tells it how much of that "paint" to apply in those areas.

Makeup, like skins, are some of the hardest Body Shop projects to make, simply because there is no one way to do them. It's just a matter of messing with things till you get something you like. The closest tutorial we have on doing something like that would be my tutorial on simming someone using source pics - makeup from source pictures is made in much the same way, just on a smaller scale - one feature rather than the entire face.

Go through that, see if it makes sense, and then just start playing. Experiment. It will likely take you a long time to get something that looks pretty good, but that is part of the learning experience. If you want to accomplish something specific, like, say, a semi-transparent lip gloss, examine existing makeup that accomplishes that well. Look at other custom content items by other creators: make an actual project of them so you can see how their alpha and texture interact to create the effect that you like, then try to reproduce it.

Again, it's not easy or quick, but if you're persistent, patient, and willing to just spend a lot of time experimenting and playing with it, you'll likely stumble upon something that looks good to you.
