Beauty Confessions
What makeup is everyone wearing today?   Today I am wearing:   1. Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation in Champagne 2. Benefit Coralista blush 3. TheBalm Mary-Loumanizer 4. Dior Creme de Rose Lipbalm 5. Dior Addict Lipstick in 454 6. Benefit Creaseless Cream shadow in RSVP   and under all this I am wearing Neutrogena Pure and Free Liquid Sunblock SPF 50   So c'mon now...confess!
Antiaging
A little bit about my skin: I am 24 and have combination/dry skin   I am currently using Philosophy Time in a Bottle as my serum and am really liking it, however I am running out of it and looking to switch it up for a bit. I just don't want my skin to get too used to Time in a Bottle since I am still young and will probably really "need" it in the future lol.   I do want a serum with anti-aging benefits and hydration is always a plus.   Thanks for taking the time to read this! Looking forward to reading all the suggestions

I'm looking for a full coverage concealer that would look good alone without any foundation. I have really bad dark circles and a few blemishes. Combination skin. Spoiler (Highlight to read)

This question might sound silly because most people understand how to use eyeliner, but for some reason i can't apply it properly. Does anyone have any tips on applying?

I am using the Estee Lauder Doublewear Fresco 2c3 and I would love trying a foundation in another brand, I love the long wear and the semi-matte finish. I wouldn't mind the new foundation being a little more lightweight as long as it's still long wear and build-able .Please help

I have the MAC Studio Fix Fluid in shade NC40 and it is pretty much my shade except that it makes me look too orange. What shade should i get in the Kat Von D foundation?

hi I'm looking for a VERY waterproof and smudge proof mascara that still make my lashes extra long and give some volume.. . any favourite products for under 40$? the cheaper the better
Sephora.com
So I was surfing BT a little and I get a pop-up (at least I think it was a pop-up, maybe i accidentally clicked the button at the bottom lol) that says "Favourite thing about Sephora.com? What new feature should we add?"   Here is my response.   "Sephora treats their Canadian customers horribly. I understand that we have to pay taxes and now duties (geez thanks) - and that's fine. BUT, our minimum $ amount for free shipping is $75! Whilst our American counterparts' minimum is only $50. Also the markup on the products is ridiculous! I know that there is an exchange rate but I also know that it is NOT THAT MUCH! (and all the prices vary in markup, hence how i know that it's mainly markup and not just the exchange rate). Not to mention things like the fragrance sets. We don't get the voucher for the free purfume of our choice, but Americans do?! How the heck is that fair?!?! Basically, treat us Canadians better - or we'll just spend our money elsewhere, and Sephora - you will be become our last resort."

Lips
So, I really want to try a really vibrant violet lip color. I looked in past threads to get ideas but the last post was about a year ago and, let's be real, a whole lot of new makeup products come out in a year. So I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions! I am not looking for anything dark or vampy. I am contemplating Too Faced Violet Melted Lipstick. If anyone has any other ideas I would really appreciate it!

How about a little spin on "what are you wearing"? I'm putting myself out there right now with a not very flattering "before" and a much more forgiving "after." Come and join me in some transformation magic!    Before:   After:   The Tools:

Does anyone know of a sweet smelling yet very sexy perfume? In the past I've used Beyoncé Heat and VS Noir Tease.
Face
Guys, my current foundation shades just aren't doing it for me, but my concealer is a great match. So I am looking for a foundation that is closer to my concealer shade. I am using MUFE Full Cover Concealer in #6 Ivory.   I am open to any brand, any coverage, and finish. I just need that right color. So please feel free to suggest any foundation that is a match to my concealer.   Thanks guys!

I love seeing other peoples empties! So I decided to make a board where people could post pictures of their empties, or just tell us about them! I'd also be interested in knowing whether you're repurchasing anything or not.

Someone in a Facebook group posted this question, so now I'm curious to know how much YOUR face is worth! Add the price of everything you used! (You can add skincare if you want )   Today, my face is worth $139!

Whenever I try to make a reservation for a makeover, it always says there's no stores in or around San Francisco. It only works on one search engine as well. Am I typing it wrong or something?

Eyes
So I purchased two of these last week and just tried them out today. They are very odd to me...like a watercolor for the eye (I think that may be in the official description), very light and transparent but color is buildable. I bought two colors and applied one to each eyelid just using the soft application tip. The color was patchy and it took awhile for it to dry before I could put on a second and then third coat. Plus, these contain a moderate amount glitter (definitely not shimmer) which almost strikes me as odd for a product so transparent. I think using a brush to even out the color would definitely help tremendously but I was doing this as my little girl was in the tub so I didn't have much time!   The colors I got are Chartreuse and Ginger Lily. The first swatch pic is without flash, the other with. The top two colors are one coat only and the bottom is three coats. I know these pics are not great but I felt the need to include something.   If anyone's tried these, let me know what you think and if you're having success with them and how. Also, any of you MUA's (or anyone else!) even if you haven't used these, if  you have suggestions, lay 'em on me. BTW, the pics are without primer and just using the applicator to apply. When I put them on my eyes I used primer and then I also tried them with NYX white shadow base.

I ordered the color #35 last week. Before I ordered the full size, I tested a sample (some months ago) and the color kinda matched. I also tested #30 but found it a bit pink on me. Sometimes beige looks fine on me but sometimes don't. I am light-medium and possibly have yellow undertone. Would #40 work for me? But isn't #40 be darker than #35? 35 is 2 shades darker than I am and looks orangey. I think my skin got lighter. Anything above 30 is too light for me though. Also, will I be able to exchange the foundation for another color if I used a bit of it? (I used it once because I thought the color was fine at first.) My skin looks pinkish here. But I have some yellow in my skin. That stripe is the #35 color.

Some campaigns from Charlotte Tillbury, Rodarte (Nars), Chanel and Dior (pics posted below) have featured pink/red/fuscia eyeshadows for their Fall campaigns.  My question to all of you is, what are your makeup application tips for me to try that same trend and interpret for a casual day look?  I may even want to wear that to work too. I don't want to look like I have a bruised eye or a puffy eye that has been crying all night.  I"d like to be able to take my sunglasses off and look my friends in the eye at lunch and not get funny looks.  Just for reference my complexion is pale with subtle yellow undertones but can pull more neutral at times.  (3yo3, Chanel B10 or BR20 approx). Does anyone have shade recommendations? Application tips??  Thanks!

This hasn't been started yet so I'll give it a go.  Today is the last day that SiJCP has an extra 25% off clearance so I stopped in to poke around before I start up the smoker for tonight.  I grabbed all these goodies for $30.

I want to try Chanel makeup but sephora doesnt carry it. I was thinking Dior would be a good alternative but, idk I feel like for the price Chanel's quality might be better? I've been using mac studio sculpt foundation in nc25 and im in love, nothing has ever made my dry, dull skin look better. I was thinking about buying chanel or dior setting powder. I used lancome's setting powder and it lasted me the summer but it didn't really do its job of setting my makeup and it looks bad under direct sunlight. which is usually my problem

Have you guys seen these?! There are tons of shades and finishes to choose from, and you can build your own palette! I can't wait to try these; I wonder if Sephora will carry all of the shades? There are so many and I'd really like to go in and test a good chunk of them.     http://www.sephora.com/artist-shadow-P387670?skuId =1622745

I thought it'd be fun to create a thread where we share our 'mask faces'! I'd love to see how lovely & silly you all look with masks on It'd be great if you mention the name of the mask you are using as well!   I'll start things off!   Tonight I am using the Lush Magnaminty mask
