Quick Fix for Makeup Fails?
My routine is pretty automated in the mornings and I don't have any extra time. I guess I wasn't really awake today then when I packed a whole lot of MAC Cranberry onto my 239 and laid it on. Heavy. Before work.    I can wear those colors I love, sparingly, on work days, but this was a bit much. Worse....when I used a nice brown for my crease color there was enough Cranberry that it blended in and lifted the tone higher.   i just wore it for the day but wondered if there isn't time to do a re-do, are there quick fixes for things like that?   Neutralize a bright color?   Tone down a shimmery shade?   Tone down blush? I have a really dark burgundy blush that is potent on my fair skin, even a little is easy to overdo. If I use a duo fibre its a little lighter, plus I can apply finishing powder, that tends to tone it down. Any other tricks?   Just wondering if you have quick fixes for these or other makeup situations.

Show me your nails!
I'm loving this nail polish from Nails Inc. I used the superfood base coat, Nailkale in Victoria and finished it off with the 45 second top coat.  The color is so rich and easy to apply.

Leary of a "does it all" eye cream
*I realize there has been much talk about different eye creams targeting different concerns. However, I stumbled upon this cream and well I'm leary of any product that appears to "do it all". It's a new product w/ only 8 reviews, so there;s not much to go on and I don't know much about this brand.  Is this too good to be true?  It's claim is that it will:   1.Fight under eye circles (I have them) 2.Puffiness 3. Smooth fine lines and wrinkles 4.And boost radiance.   Thoughts about this...as I have aged I do notice some puffiness under my eyes and darker circles. I'm attaching a picture of me with no makeup on at all for reference.  Soap & Glory Make Yourself Youthful Rejuvenating Eye Cream.  It's an exclusive as well.  TY.  ~KAM

Heartbreaking article...felt the need to post
I just stumbled on the most heartbreaking article entitled "An Ugly Woman's Honest and Painful Response to Being Mistreated Goes Viral". The photo that accompanied it spoke very strongly to me.     The article links to the original post by a Reddit user describing what should have been a great night out with friends that I've included in the spoiler. These are not my words, but I totally understand how this woman feels. All of us at one time or another have had these feelings or encounters like this. As a relative newcomer to this beauty board I've experienced great interactions with other BT community members and seen mostly positive interactions. I'm posting this with the hope that in reading this individuals will be encouraged to pay it forward or step out of their comfort zone in regards to their own beauty or perception of beauty. Stop someone on the street and say something nice, volunteer at a women's shelter or donate to a cause that helps/empowers women. Share your own stories within this thread and find support. This article really moved me and I just felt compelled to share it.   Spoiler (Highlight to read) "Warning: wall of text ahead I am an ugly woman. Objectively, I really am. Please don't argue with me on this one, Reddit. I am not overweight, actually in better shape than most women my age, I dress well, I am great with makeup. But last weekend the world just had to remind me that despite all this, people will go out of their way to kick me. I don't often go clubbing, but Saturday night was a special occasion. A friend was celebrating her 21st, and it was also the weekend after a long week of brutal exams. It felt like a good time to blow off some steam. Because I don't often go clubbing, I really tried this night to look nice. There was an outfit that I had bought a long time ago, but that I'd never worn because it was a little sexier than what I usually wear. A close friend had picked it out for me when we were shopping, and, in that "you go girl" kind of way had urged me to buy it. I did my makeup painstakingly, straightened my hair which always takes forever because my hair is huge, put on that too-sexy-for-me outfit. And when I looked in the mirror I was even surprised at myself. "Wow, is that me? I actually look...nice!" I showed my friends. They all said I looked great. And they MEANT it too. Like, genuine happy encouragement. I could tell they were sincere and it made me feel so good, like for once I wasn't just masquerading as an attractive girl with fancy makeup and clothes, but that I WAS the attractive girl. I hadn't felt so attractive in ages, Reddit. When we got to the club, we got a nasty surprise. We had been told that tonight there was no cover charge for girls, and so none of us had brought much cash on our person. Well, our info was wrong. They did indeed ask for a cover. Only one of us 6 girls had cash, and she only had enough to cover two people. When we got to the door and found this out, a group of guys behind us volunteered to help us out. They each forked over a couple of bucks to cover my friends, but not one of them offered to cover me. One by one my friends were let in and they waited on the other side of the door until everyone got through. The guys were doing everything to avoid eye contact with me. They were looking at the ground, the street, pretending to look through their wallets for cash to cover one more girl. It was so painfully obvious that I felt like just going home. Luckily, my friend with the extra cash covered me so I was allowed in. Well, once we were inside I thought I could just forget about that incident. I had dressed up and come out, to have a good time and relax. So for a while I danced with my friends. It wasn't long before other guys started dancing with us. We kind of paired off slowly, there was a guy whose two buddies had started dancing with other girls and he was left alone. At that point I too had lost track of my friends and was alone. He started dancing with me, but the whole time he seemed really distracted. Not once did he really look at my face, he was kinda looking around the club the whole time, like he was browsing the scene for another, more attractive girl he could bounce to. In less than 10 minutes, he had seen one. He peaced out without a word, and I saw him dancing a few minutes later with a very attractive brunette. The way he acted with her was just SO different than when he had danced with me. He was face to face with her, smiling, dancing enthusiastically. That made my stomach drop. I went to the bar, found one of my friends who was sitting there with a guy. She introduced us, he bought everyone drinks. After a while I felt like a bit of a third wheel so I went back to the dance floor. Eventually my group of girls regathered together. Everyone had a guy, except for one of them who had a bf at home. So I danced with her, with our friends and their guys near us. There was a photographer going around the club, taking pictures of the people there. I assume it was for some promo for their website or something. He got to our group, and literally circled us several times, taking several pics from different angles. I was kind of psyched about this, so I did my best to look like I was having a good time, made sure he could snap me at my best. But after a while I realized he wasn't circling us to get our best angles. He was trying to get a frame without ME. If I moved closer to the center of the group, for instance, he would tilt his camera a little the other way. I couldn't believe it until finally, he actually came up to me and asked me to get out of the shot. I felt so ugly right then. For all the effort I had put into looking and feeling good that night, it seemed like it just didn't matter. So the night ends with me leaving the club. My friend with the bf at home who was dancing with me left with me so I wouldn't be alone. The rest of my girl friends didn't notice what had happened with the photographer, so when they asked me where I was going I just told them I was tired and wanted to go home. And since I wasn't leaving alone, they let me. So yeah, that's my story from the weekend. Please be kinder to ugly people, Reddit. Maybe one of the people I met that night will read this post and recognize themselves. I hope so, if only so they can know how behavior they're barely conscious of can affect someone else. EDIT: I have always been a lurker on Reddit so I'm not sure if I can find out who gave me gold. But thank you, stranger! I will enjoy this gold while it lasts.

Deluxe and Foil Samples Traveling Box!
I posted a previous post about starting a traveling box with samples and deluxe samples and a few ladies were interested in doing one!  This is the 1st traveling box I am apart of and of course the 1st that I am starting.   So, we need to decide if we are going to do a medium or small flat rate box.     RULES  No used items.  No open items  DO NOT take more than you put in.  Let's keep this fun and fair  DO NOT take multiples of the same sample  PLEASE try not to keep the box more than 3 days  Make sure to send your address to the person listed above you  Once you send the box off, post the tracking number in this thread  ALL unused items allowed (well maybe not nail polishes if it will make the shipping costs go up)  Post a pic of what you take out, what you put in and what is left in the box before you send it off   We are going to have fun and try to keep this going as long as we can!   If you are interested in being in the box, I have a few spots left so post a pic of what samples you have in this thread to be added.   To start off, we are only going to have 10 people! 1. CuriousCannibal 2. MegEm 3.MLLECC 4. tessie84 5. Kittichick 6. NicoleFrat 7. NightKnight 8. Sweetxteeth 9. Nishcakes  10. Kariyava

Hair stil coming out
Yep, 3rd post back-to back! lol I am trying to put myself back together again! lol SO, I am doing the detox, eating diff., taking supplements & vitamins, and working out ( and yes it hasn't been that long)..... but I am over this whole hair thing'e.   I went and saw my derma today & he said it could take a year b4 my hair bounces back (gets out of shed mode, & it has been 10 months). He had my blood taken to check some things, did a "pull-test", and took some hair to look at under a scope (or whatever). In the meantime he said I could go get Men's 5% Foam Rogaine (not sure what the active ingredient is yet) & massage it in my hair everyday.  So, here are my main questions: -Do y'all think I should wait for the test to come back? -Do you know of another treatment w/ the same active ingredient(s) that may work better & maybe make my hair grow faster (think I am gonna grow it all the way out again & NOT cut it for a hot minute ) lol ?     Any input would be great! Thanks!

It's midnight in New York and you know what that means... it's October!! I don't care if I'm in California, I'm still making this post hahaha.    I started my haul at CVS because my sister had $10 rewards for beauty and I used that towards lipsticks for my kit.    I got Wet n Wild lipsticks in Sugar Plum Fairy, Wine Room, and Mauve Outta Here. I also got a Milani lipstick in High Voltage. I paid $2 for 4 lipsticks!   I went to Ulta to pick up NYX Dark Circle Corrector and the Essence Lipstick (4th one above) in Wear Berries   THEN, I went to Sephora to pick up a free deluxe sample of Bare Minerals lipstick in Speak Your Mind and my MUFE Birthday gift!     PS my birthday is October 18 hehe

ADDICTION TO ONE MAKE UP TYPE COMES IN PHASES - ANYONE SHARE THIS ISSUE?
Which make up type are you addicted to right now? Lipstick, Gloss, Eye Shadow Palettes, Mascaras, Foundations, Blushers, tanners????????? Has the product you are obsessed by changed over time??????   In my twenties I was addicted to lipsticks and lip glosses. When new ranges would come in from brands like Dior, Lancome, YSL, Chanel, Sisleya, and Givenchy; I'd buy every pink that suited me, and even some that didn't because they looked so darn pretty.   When I relocated from the US to Asia, I had to throw away literally hundreds of lipsticks, and even today - I am now 43 - I have literally dozens of lipsticks and glosses left from that period; I can't throw them away in case I ever need them (which is hardly likely - lipstick isn't even meant to last that long, is it?) I've given a lot to my daughters over time, but we all have different color preferences and different skin colors ... and of course I never entirely stopped buying lipsticks/glosses; my current favorites are the Tom Ford Matte range - loving Crimson Noir, Casablanca, and Indian Rose especially.   In my thirties my focus shifted to eye shadow palettes, and again I bought more than I could possibly hope to ever use - like every new one from Dior, Chanel, Bobbi Brown, Givenchy, Nars, YSL etc. I was particularly into getting my hands on the limited edition ones, even if the colors did not appeal to me. I've given loads away to my children, even when they were young, as I figured they could use them for practice, but then another mother mentioned that most 8 year olds don't have a make up purse full of Dior Palettes. I explained I was done with them, so saw it as a way to recycle. I tried to laugh it off, but I wasted so many $$$$$$ it was crazy. And of course I never stopped buying the darn things entirely since I hit 40, I just try to think a lot more about what I might realistically use. Totally loving the UD Naked Palettes right now.   Now in my forties I'm obsessed with foundations. Thankfully I finally found one I love, along with a BB cream (Estee Lauder Double Wear), but when I was 40, 41, and 42, I was buying maybe 40 foundations a year in my desperate search for the HG ...   Now I found my HG Foundation, my focus has shifted to blushers ...

I've been told I have "more pink than yellow", but honestly I have no idea! I color matched w/ IQ as 2RO8 and wear HG Immaculate in Nude and use MUFE creamy concealer in Vanilla (only use on my face). I found the HG nude to be just a tad bit dark, but it's workable.   I'd really like to try YSL's Touche Eclat, as a highlighter, and over my undereye concealer, but honestly do not understand the wording of their color shades   I just want to brighten up and impart some radiance.   Any other brand suggestions are welcomed!  I do have some darkness in the undereye area...I currently use Giorgio Armani.Maestro in orange (to combat the darkness)..   Tx for your time...pic attached with no make up on

Is my eye cream too irritating?
Strange question... I've been using a new eye serum for about 2 weeks that was recommended by an SA.  It is Clarins Active Lift and is supposed to firm and diminish dark circles.   every night I've used it, I notice almost immediately that the area just edging where I've patted it on starts to flush quite red.  It doesn't itch, rash or raise in any way, so I just want to know if I should be concerned?

Holiday Packages for Friends
This year I'm preparing for Christmas a bit earlier, in order to take advantage of the 20% off VIB sale this year, and was wondering what other BT'ers here usually like to buy for their friends.   Most of my friends like makeup, and like to wear it, but only wear it about once a month if at all. There has been many hysterical conversations where they've admitted to me why they don't buy mascara. It's because they feel wasteful about using it only a handful of times before it expires.   Needless to say, every year I buy and hoard mini's of everything for the glorious fun day of girly squealing.   The mini's I typically keep for gifting are mascara, eyeliners, primers, perfume, and other bits and bobs. Oh, and a travel skin care set in a small makeup bag.    This year has been pretty generous with me, and I was thinking of adding something really nice with each package. Any recommendations?   What do you like to give your girlfriends?

New To Colorful Eyeshadow/Eyeliner.
Hey ladies, I have a few questions I would like to ask your thoughts on regarding eyeshadows / eyeliner as well as lipstick .    Question 1 : I would like to know how I can introduce the idea of adding color into eye looks I create ?. I've always been one who tends to lean more towards neutrals simply because they tend to look so polished and flattering on me. However I have felt lately I would like to experiment with color and see so much that inspires that drive to want to try my hand at color. However I feel slightly intimidated by wearing color for fear of messing it up. I find it a bit overwhelming really on how to pair colors up so that a look will blend nicely. Is there a place I can go that can give lots of color combinations or ideas on looks that may be of interest to me ?. I do frequent Youtube a lot and so that is always a great place to check out as well.    Question 2 : In regards to different techniques of application. I've always done my eyeshadow the traditional method lid, crease, brownbone. I wanted to play with different application techniques of eyeshadow. Is there a site that has pictures that explain different ways of applying eye makeup ?.    Question 3 : Eyeliner is one aspect of eye makeup I enjoy as it brings the looks I wear together. I use the Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Liner and it works wonderfully on my upper lash line however anything I put on my waterline is a complete fail. I tend to have VERY sensitive eyes that water a lot especially in the winter. Nothing I ever tried has stayed on my waterline and I feel disappointed because it's aspect of eye makeup I want to master. So if you know some secret tips that are able to make it stay put that would be great.    Another question is pairing colored eyeliner with eye looks, what colors go best with what looks ?. I've seen a fair share of great colorful liners but not sure what pairs well with them.    Question 4 :  This is about pairing lipsticks with eye looks that will make the look come together well. I have A LOT of lipsticks in an array of colors and I want to know how to pair them with both Colorful and Neutral looks.

Best Dry mascara
I hope you can help me! I am currently looking into getting a new mascara. I have been using Helena Rubenstein Lash Queen Waterproof Black for a while, but I wanna change it. I have thin, short and fine lashes, so looking for a formula that won't weigh down my lashes, which is my main problem with all mascaras. I prefer it to be waterproof as I work out a lot. I really want lots of volume and lenght. I really hope you can suggest some suitable mascaras for me.
