Hi all, I have a moderate tremor in both hands and it makes the more precise aspects of makeup application difficult. Specifically I have trouble with eyeliner and mascara. I can't get a straight line with the eyeliner and I keep stabbing myself in the eye or getting wicked smudges with the mascara. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to apply eye makeup with shaky hands? Thanks to anyone who has thoughts!
I have to fill in some sparse areas in my brows and am looking for something that looks the most natural. I often find that if I get anything but the lightest color it is too dark and harsh for me. I have light brown hair.
I haven't worn much waterproof make up before and don't have make up remover (just soap and water). Usually I use Buxom's insider liner in onyx (and several other colors), and I'm about to run out and was thinking of trying the new hold the line but... how would you get it off?? I've heard a couple things to get waterproof eyeliner off, olive oil, lotion or make up remover on a q tip, but is that really ok to get in your eyes? Is it bad to not use remover to get it out? (Like leave it or reapply?) I'd imagine it would be but would love to hear an explanation...
Can someone please tell me how to use a cream eye eyeliner? I recieved the Smash box trio cream eye liner sample. It's too thick and dry to use straight out of the jar. I have dipped my brush in water prior to usage and all it did was give a FAINT light bit of color, kind of like a water color set. I also just purchased http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P27 8400&categoryId=C10905 and again no idea how to use the cream eyeliner. Thanks in advance
I love natural stuff, and neutral makeup products. I don't even know why. So i was just relaxing and fooling around with my makeup when i randomly thought, "What's the point of wearing neutral eyeshadows when it doesn't look like you're wearing anything?" and it really bothered me to not know. I guess what I'm asking is why do people wear neutral eyeshadows and stuff? Especially when most are shimmery and it's obvious you put eyeshadow on that is practically the same color of your skin... This must sound really weird, especially coming from me because probably half my posts are about "natural looking makeup", "neutral eyeshadows", "natural eye palettes", etc hahaa.
Hi I want to start using an eye primer. I was looking at Urban Decay primer potion or Bare Minerals prime time eyelid primer. Which one of these would you guys recommend? If not these which one? Thanks
ok i just gotta ask...is glitter makeup (glitter eyeliner on lid of eyes) out of style/outdated?? Like no longer in fashion or trend? i ask because yesterday i went to a shoot and the MUA there while taking off my makeup so she can do my makeup for the photoshoot said "oh you have/put glitter eyeliner/shadow?" and i said ya! and i asked why, is glitter like so 80's etc..not "in" anymore and she said yea, it's kind o tacky or whatever! um but it's weird, cuz when i do wear my sephora silver glitter eyeliner right on top of my eyeliner on my eyelids, i get compliments everywhere i go!! (from females of course); like even at the drive-thru windows, at the mall, etc...women just say how pretty the glitter is or that they like my glitter eyes! but after hearing that MUA say that to me..idk; i like my eyes when i put glitter on them
I am going to France in a few months, and I would love to have a pretty large eyeshadow palette to take with me. My favorite shadows are urban decay, and I'm planning on taking my naked 2, but they don't have a larger palette than that or a build your own larger than 4. I would preferably like something at least 15 shades please I really really like my shadows to be very pigmented, like UD ones. Thank you so much!
have extremely thin and short eye lashes. I have tried many different mascaras only a few make them look long and thick after multiple times applying but it wears off quickly during the day, little black dots under my eyes. What mascara will work the best?
Okay so I need help. I use Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner and I liked it at first but now its fading and it isn't as black as it use to be. I have to use to liners now just to make it the black I want to. Is there any recommendations for a very black liquid eyeliner that is really black and stays throughout the day?
Hi I used to draw/fill in my eyebrows w a pencil way too dark! So i decided to try powders, and I just cannot get hang of any of the powders i tried the brow zings and anastasia ones...why can't i fill in my brows w powders? can i still get a natural brows w a pencil and if so which one(s)? thanks in advance beauties!!!~ ya thanks everyone; ima buy/try the dior brow styler!!~ btw i am asian; black hair!
so i've finallly decided to buy a nice liquid liner. it dosen't need to be waterproof, but if it is, that's a not a dealbreaker (30 rock anyone?), since my liner never lasts with pencil, and gel takes to long to apply ( i 'm impaient) however, i know liquid liner will be easier than gel as i'm expeirienced with liquid liner. anyway, so what do you girls ( and guys, mokeys, elephants, and platypus) reccomend i buy?
I like to get the eyeshadow wet, and paint on the line with an eyeliner brush. My bobbi brown eyeshadow worked great, until it broke. The less expensive brands Ive been using dont stay on well at all. Are there any other brands out there that work well for this?
So.. I just need to know how truly awesome the Lorac Pro Palette is. None of my local Sephoras have this palette for me to play with. I am really interested in the combination of shimer/satin and matte shades... I have the naked basics palette, but would like a little more. Thank You!
Has anyone used both? I am trying to decide which one would be better. I have somewhat oily lids, but always use a primer. I like the idea of the retractable so that I need to sharpen less, but I want the liner to stay put. Please help!
I was doing my makeup yesterday, and reached for my MAC A Dashing Lassie Eyeshadow Palette from last year's Christmas collection to use the champagne shade, Once Upon A Time, as my inner corner highlight. It has (had?) a huge dent in it and I've been working on it for my Project 10 Pan for a while now - my only goal was to hit pan. Well, after I tapped my brush in it, it had used enough product for me to finally hit pan! I am so excited!!! This is the first time I have ever hit pan on any eyeshadow/blush/powder product! I think I've had this palette for a year and a half or so. My excitement over this is probably way too much for most of you. Sorry! Have you ever hit pan? If so, how many and what (specific or not) products do you hit pan on?
Hi ladies! I was browsing in my local Sephora after work today and saw that Anastasia has a bright blue mascara and also a purple one! It looked like so much fun especially with summer coming around the bend. Just wondering if anyone is planning to sport a colored mascara this summer? Dannyc, weren't you looking for a Chanel one a few weeks ago? Did you ever find "the one"? I would love something blue/greenish with a sparkly finish!
