Look at you looking all glammy! Nice job on the contouring and the falsies! (I've never ever tried them.... I'm a-scared!) Love the dramatically lit shot. Very hot!

Re: What are you wearing today?

My big brother is a photographer and gave me tips on how to do different lighting, so I was trying it out with that one! It was hard to capture some shots because it's all overcast and gloomy, but I liked the first one too! Thank you!

Re: What are you wearing today?

You are a total babe, Brenna. Total babe. In all seriousness this look is incredible on you! You look photoshopped (in a good way) except you're not - at all! I'm fairly happy with my natural lashes, but mostly I'm not brave enough to try out falsies yet. This is seriously amazing on you, though. Yep, that's my feedback: you're just gorgeous in every way.

Re: What are you wearing today?

You're the best Lari!! :smileyvery-happy: Thank you so much! I've always been happy with my lashes, but this look was inspired by something I saw on the Beauty Boards, and she had falsies on, so I felt like in order to get it right, I'd need to do them as well, so I sucked it up and finally got them on! Thanks again. <3

Re: What are you wearing today?

Your eyes in general are just to die for here. And the super-sculpted look really glams up your face. Like, incredibly. It just suits you.

Re: What are you wearing today?

Tried something a bit ethereal today. I would skip the bronzer for a similar look next time.

Such a natural, healthy glow! So pretty :smileyhappy:

Re: What are you wearing today?

I love the color on your lips, they really pop! I also love how you did your waterline. It looks gorgeous. 

LariTheLoud

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thank you so much! It's a bit different for me. I usually wear a darker waterline, but I really enjoy the effect it has here. :smileyhappy:

BrennaBombshell

Re: What are you wearing today?

I like the effect of the light waterline too! It looks really great on you. Your eyes are already huge and amazing, but this makes them explode with gorgeousness! 

LariTheLoud

Re: What are you wearing today?

AWWW Thank you so much Ms. Brenna with your gorgeous glam eyes today!

Re: What are you wearing today?

OK, Lari, talk me off the ledge. I bought the Diffused Light and — I know this is heresy — I'm not loving it. I think it looks a little cakey to me (and I'm not using tons). My skin tone is only slightly darker than yours (I'm light, not fair). Help me out here, baby.

 

On the flip side, you look really nice. :smileyhappy:

LariTheLoud

Re: What are you wearing today?

Cakey! Oh no!

 

I've never personally experienced cakeyness with the powders, but I have noticed that on some days I feel them on the face more than others, if you know what I mean? Like, they're fine and fairly lightweight, but I just... feel it sometimes. It's not the foundation, because my foundations feel light on the skin, so I can only attribute it to the powders.

 

What kind of brush do you use to apply? I wait until everything is set, then take a giant fan brush (like the biggest, fluffiest one I have), lightly dip into the powders and spread it onto my face in a thin layer. I sort of treat it like an HD powder, where you really only need a very small amount.

 

Does Diffused Light diminish your redness at all (if you have any)? I know when I was first shopping and ogling the powders, what sold me on Diffused was rubbing it onto the back of my hand and watching my splotchiness disappear.

I do have redness, but I haven't really noticed it disappear with the Diffused at all (which is why I bought it). I use a stippling brush to apply. I guess maybe cakey isn't the exact description I'm looking for, but I guess I was looking for something that would look a bit more "airbrushed"? Does that make sense?

 

It seems you are our resident expert on the HG powders. Any suggestions on which I should try?

Also, did you try taking before and after selfies (before/after powder application)? You can see if it's making a difference on you in photographs better than you can in person, sometimes. 

 

EDITED: Tired of seeing my face on the front page so I'll do a proper BEFORE vs AFTER shot either tomorrow or Friday. Gotta remind myself to do it. Months ago vs. today doesn't really help much, I think!

 

LariTheLoud

Re: What are you wearing today?

I never would have thought I'd be the resident HG powder expert, lol! A stippling brush definitely shouldn't be layering too much on. Though you know, I wonder if Dim Light would be a better match for you as an all over powder than Diffused? Many girls who are light but not fair to super fair seem to think Dim does more for them than Diffused. So perhaps you can try using Dim all over and then subtly highlighting with Diffused or Ethereal. I would hate for you to buy it and not enjoy Dim either, though. I wish there was a way for you to get a 'trial' size!

Wouldn't that be lovely if they did have a trial size? I was toying with purchasing the palette, although I'm not sure I'd get much use out of the darkest one. Now that I'm rouge and get free shipping, I can't afford anything to ship! Ha!

 

Thanks for the advice on Dim. Will have to try that out.

LariTheLoud

Re: What are you wearing today?

Sad how that works, isn't it?! I'm close to Rouge, but... I spread out my purchases among Sephora and department stores and MAC....

Getting rouge is a very mixed blessing.

LariTheLoud

Re: What are you wearing today?

So I hear. I'm in no hurry, exactly. :smileywink:
