I purchased a "Laura Mercier" mohogany brown tightline eye liner at a Sephora in Orange County California. I was told that it could be used wet or dry. After using it wet once, the liner had a hard crust of sorts on top which could not be penetrated with my brush. I googled what to do and learned that the top should be roughed up with a mascara wond type brush, which I did. However, I still can not get enough liner on my brush to make the make up noticeable. What to do?
Can anyone recommend a long lasting pencil/gel/cream eyeliner? Preferably bold in color (mainly black), that won't smudge onto my upper eyelid? I was using various Kat Von D brand liners, but the mini pencils she had didn't have enough depth and I wasn't a fan of the sparkles, plus they were so small. Her various tattoo liquid liners gave me an allergic reaction, so those are out. I really do prefer a liner in pencil(ish) form, but not exclusively. I just don't know whats out there and I don't want to keep buying a ton of liners and end up hating them all lol. .....Any suggestions??
Hello! I've been recently looking for something that will fill my brows in easily like Benefit's Gimmie Brow, I've never tried it, but I've been debating between that, the tarte Colored Clay, the Clnique Brow mousse, or the newest Sephora one? I've got pretty thick brows, but I'm looking for a quick filler/something to set it all. Thank you so much!
Just wanted to let all you Viseart addicts know that ALL of the palettes (including the newest ones — Cool Mattes, Dark Mattes and Editorial Brights) are available online at Musebeauty (google it). Happy shopping! I ordered Dark Mattes yesterday!
Hi everybody! I'm hoping you guys can help me out, I want to purchase my first higher end eyeshadow palette, but I'm a little overwhelmed with all the options and am unsure about which tones would suit me best. I'm fair skinned with somewhere between a cool and neutral undertone, darker red/auburn hair (natural) and green eyes. (For example my coloring is very similar to that of Julianne Moore's) I just want something that i can create a few everyday/daytime looks but with a little variety. (I was looking at Naked 1 and The Chocolate Bar but I'm open to any and all options) Anyway thanks in advanced for the advice!
I wear glasses, unfortunately, (and no, I'm not wearing contacts!) and I want to know if you can wear fake eyelashes even if you do wear glasses? I was interested in the new Makeup Forever Lash Show kit. Thanks PS. ( I have a feeling that the answer will be no because it might be too hard in case the fake lashes touch my lenses! )
Im a very light tan (maybe to be more specific I'm a medium 30 with sephoras foundation) and I have a hard time with figuring out what compliments my face with the right colors. So if anyone could just suggest tones the suits my skin color that would be great!!
Hello everyone! I have been looking for a new product lately and I can't seem to find anyone that sells the exact thing I am looking for. I want an eyelash treatment. I am nineteen and my eyelashes aren't falling out, they're still thick and there are plenty of them. I don't want a product similar to latisse that will grow them, but rather a moisturizing treatment similar to mascara but clear that I can put on over night. I wear makeup every day to school or work and feel that continuing with heavy mascara will eventually lead to dry and unhealthy eyelashes. I have looked through a lot of brands and none seem to offer just a plain eyelash treatment without offering to grow lashes. Does anyone know of anything similar to what I am thinking about? Thanks!
Finding a good concealer is an absolute nightmare for me. I have small pimples, cystic acne, and acne scars. I also have HORRIBLE bags under my eyes, and of course they are puffy too. It's almost like I have a permanent line under my eyes. I need a good concealer for all of these problems. My Pantone match is 3Y02. Thank you!!!
Everytime I got into Sephora or Ulta, I'm always drawn to Urban Decay's Vice4 palette. I don't wear many bright colors, and the only Urban Decay palette that I own is the Naked 3. I'm trying to talk myself into purchasing it, but I can't seem to pull the trigger on it. I wanna get out of the habit of wearing only neutrals. I always tell myself I'm gonna start wearing more bright pops of color, but never seem to. Do you think the Vice4 palette would be a good place to start?
Anyone have any problems with the highliner in your play box? Mine straight fell out of the tube yesterday! I know there were some quality issues but i couldn't remember reading if anyone had any problems with the ones in the play boxes
I would love to be able to wear eyeliner and mascara. I have yet to find one that does not leave me with raccoon eyes. I use primer (have tried Urban Decay, Kat Von D, Too Faced, Benefit, and Sephora brands). I did try the Urban Decay setting spray, and it made me break out in a rash. I have tried waterproof mascara. I have tried just about every mascara in the world it seems. For eyeliners, some of the eyeliners I have tried are (and I've tried the mascaras from all of these brands as well): Urban Decay 24/7 Bobbie Brown long lasting (gel and liner) Smashbox brand Benefit brand Clinique Estee Lauder Laura Mercier Stila Too Faced Nars I've tried kohl, gel, powder, and liquid eyeliners. Always the same result. Could my eye area just be too oily for eyeliner and mascara?
Hi all, I have really bad under eye circles that I have tried absolutely everything on. From using different eye creams to different concealers. Right now I am trying the Kiehls avocado under eye cream. On top of that I use the Nars tinted moisturizer under my eyes and let in sit and use my beauty blender, then on top of that I use the mac prolong wear concealer. This does look cakey but it seems to look good during the first few hours of the day but then by the middle of the day its dried out and shows my "chicken skin" (I don't know the real term for this, I have seen some other call it this) through. I am looking for a moisturizing under eye concealer that is not going to crease into my "chicken skin", I thought maybe if I used a really moisturizing under eye concealer that would help the issue of my concealer not getting into those really fine lines under my eyes within my dark circles. Any suggestions I would love !!
I don't mean to start anything, but I can't wrap my head around this. How is this possible? I'm just curious. Mink lashes have really taken off in recent years, more so this year than any other. Some say they "gently brush" the minks, but these little guys are quite aggressive, and solitary animals. I just don't see that being possible. Then I hear companies say they don't even brush the minks, they just collect the hairs that naturally shed, so the minks are not stressed out. This too, I find hard to believe. This would require the minks to be trapped in cages. Free range farms wouldn't really be possible, as these animals would fight with each other. They wouldn't do well in a "free range farm". No matter how I try to imagine it, it still seems like they are cruelly contained in some way. Not to mention, I'm sure in some of these farms, they torture these minks, kill them, and sell their fur. I'm just having a really hard time understanding how you can harvest these hairs humanely with such aggressive, and independent animals. If anyone has any answers, or could further explain this, I would be very happy to hear it! I'm just looking for more information, as it's pretty hard to find out. It's not like these companies tell you what the farm's name and location is, so you can't really do a whole lot of research. I've also noticed, sephora has only excepted faux lashes from velour, and huda beauty.
So after a year of finally getting my eyebrows to where I want them I woke up this morning and one of my eyebrows was super itchy, almost burning! Of course my first instinct is to rub it, and then i felt the hair on my hand and ran to the bathroom. Now my one eyebrow is thin and uneven and looks deflated almost! I'm getting married in two weeks and i'm literally in tears over this because I'm almost positive no amount of powder or pencil will fix this. I'm tempted to go to my eyebrow threader and tell her just to thin them both to even. >< Any suggestions on products/tips to shape them back?
I am obsessed with the colour Silk Teddy from Too Faced Natural Eyed palette. I use it everyday and I have hit pan. I do not want to re purchase the whole palette just for that one colour. Does anyone know one that is similar?
