Eyeliner help
Hi! So it's my first time posting here and I'm looking for an eyeliner I can use on my waterline and also lower lash line. I'm new to eyeliner but have really been loving looks with a pop of color on the waterline and also lower lash line. I love make up forever so I thought about trying their new Aqua xl liners but I have seen some good reviews for the urban decay 24/7, Marc highliner, and the nars larger than life as well. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

Help! Thin, straight eyelashes won't hold a curl.
I'm going crazy! I swear, no matter what mascara I use or eyelash curler, my eyelashes refuse to hold a curl. I've noticed that this has been happening for the past year. They use to hold a curl and look how I wanted them too, but not anymore. I've used heat on my curler, tried a few different curlers AND used waterproof mascara and they still refuse to stay curled for more than 5 seconds. My eyelashes now look straight and always clump together whenever I wiggle the mascara wand. I have even tried applying fake eyelashes a few times but I'm awful at it.   Currently,  I use a tweezerman & cover girl eyelash curler as well as the waterproof Maybelline Full 'N Soft mascara.

best eyeshadow palette for green eyes?
I find rust colors and gold tones look the best on me, there's so many palettes like that I have no idea what to get. Green and purple don't really work for me. I've been using the eyeshadow palette from the lancome holiday beauty box, but I'm extremely low if it helps. I could try something outside my comfort zone too.

MAJOR eyeliner issues
I need a whold semester on classes in eyeliner to every nail it halfway one day and not take 45min.   What are some recommendations, I have dark brown hair and eyes and lighter skin.  So black for the color.  I always basically stuck with the drugstore glide on pencils with regular pencils tugging so much, and liquid not great for a shaky hand.  recently tried a kajal i swore by, but it seems a bit dry in less than a week.  easy to get on tho thick.  I nonstop hear about maybelline gel point and use brush in kit.  my hands wouldn't allow me the chance to succeed.     Also, a lot seem to get rubbed of after im done applying mascara.  have yet to find eye end or drugstore that stays

How to clean eyeshadow palette that has shattered eyeshadow powder on the rest of the colors?
Hey guys!   I recently received an eyeshadow palette that came shattered. The dark brown color broke into crumbles and has somehow incorporated into the rest of the intact colors.   I'm trying to scrape/lift it off with tissues, but I feel like I'm spreading the brown around and making it worse.   Any recommendations on how can I best clean up the intact colors and remove the shattered brown color that got into it?   Thanks in advance!

I don't wear false lashes.  I swear by urban decay perversion...but to give the umph I had a coat of too faced better than sex (not waterproof bc not a fan)    I normally do two coats urban decay perversion and then on coat of too faced and it amps up to a new level.  more than one coat can get clumpy.  Any other suggestions for my top coat?   Heard stila is same as too faced without the clumpiness...but does that mean less dramatic too?  Tried lorac and ok but still not like too faced.  Ideas?

Video Review + Tutorial | Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette
If you're a big fan of warm neutrals, Terracotta, and burgundy shadows you're going to love this palette! I think what I like most about it is that all the colors seem to compliment one another effortlessly. It's not your typical boring neutral eyeshadow palette for sure.   I think anyone can wear these shades pretty much all year long. They are on the powdery side. I'd say that's the only negative, but I just make sure to tap off the excess repeatedly before dipping in the shadow each time.   The palette can easily get pretty messy from the fallout, so you have to be careful about that. All in all, I think it's a unique and stunning palette that most would be happy with.  😍

What color eybrow gel?
I have naturally light brown hair and black eyebrows. I'm looking at the new Benefit Eyebrow brown gel and am not sure what color to get. I usually fill my eyebrows with a medium gray color but they do usually look a little too bold.

Allergy ideas?
I'm having an extremely odd allergic reaction and I can't get an appointment with a doctor until August, so I'm hoping some of you fab folks have some insight. My issue is primer and only on my lids. I used to use UD Primer Potion and, when they changed the formula, I began having a reaction. I then tried Trish McEvoy and also had a reaction. Both contained silicone (dimethicone in UD, cyclopentasiloxane in Trish McEvoy). I then tried Too Faced Glitter Glue, which does not contain silicone in any form, and had a reaction to that. My fiancé and I scoured the ingredients of the three, and the only ingredient they all have in common is phenoxyethanol.   Anyone ever heard of an allergy to this?? I'm trying now to find a primer that doesn't contain phenoxyethanol, which is possible, but I'm just so tired of trying something, doing my makeup, and 3 hours later having to take it off because my lids are red, swollen, and itchy. Plus, then I can't wear any eye makeup for a week and it's really annoying.

Make up Mess: Urban Decay Primer Potion!
Hi Ladies,   Firstly I apologize if I post incorrectly or my photos are crooked. This is my first time uploading a photo here.   I am having a problem with my Urban Decay Primer Potion (Original). I purchased it this past December. Previously I was using the same primer (UD) for over 3 years. I don't buy a lot at Sephora because I  don't know what some of the best products are.   I immediately noticed a change in my eye make up when I opened my second tube of UD primer potion. I hate the new packaging! Tons of product comes out of the tube at once, and the primer seems 'wet'.   I am not happy with how my eye shadow looks. Am I doing something wrong? I am by no means an expert in make up application but I definetely noticed a change with the second primer. Perhaps they changed their formula?   Any advice is appreciated. Thank you!
