I think your best bet might to be to try to teach yourself how to apply makeup, that way you won't need to rely on others. It's actually a lot easier than you might think, it takes a little practice and trusting your instincts.
I strongly recommend checking out Youtube as there are a vast amount of tutorials for just about anything you'd want. Here's a link to the makeup artists I usually suggest for people: https://www.youtube.com/user/pixiwoo
They have a lot of great videos on basics as well as a lot of different looks to try out. Hope this helps, good luck!
