I use an eyeshadow base all the time, either a drugstore brand, Essence or the Benefit Lemon-Aid Primer. I use either or just depends. Anyway, so my issue is that when I want to do a smokey look using a black shadow or just a dark color, it doesn't stay through-out the day, it seems like it fades slowly on my top lip and when I smoke out my bottom lash area, it seems to be the same. Both top and bottom seem to fade out slowly throughout the day...is there something other technique I could use to prevent that? I love dark smokey looks, but rarely ever do them because of this issue I have. Any suggestions?
I just wondering if anyone had swatches of any of the Burberry single eyeshadows on dark skin. I've been combing the internet and YouTube and am not finding much, but I would love to get my hands on one of them -- particularly the ones that are a bit more nude. Any photos or recommendations as to where I can find swatches would be a great help.
Hello! I am looking into getting Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow, and I am not quite sure which shade to get. I have black eyebrows, medium brown skin, and reddish hair. I was looking at the granite shade but I feel like that would look way too unnatural! I was thinking about maybe ebony or a dark brown? Thanks!
Has anyone else have problems with the tarte Best In Faux Lash Extending Fibers? They make my lashes look great but it irritates my eyes so much I think I need to get them checked out. Anyone else have this problem or is it just me?
i have really bad dark circles and bags under my eyes. i have tried many concealers but nothing works. what would be a good corrector for me? i have a neutral undertone and an olive skin tone. Thanks, Sarah
Does anyone have any suggestions for a good eye shadow palette for blue eyes? I have only recently begun experimenting eye shadows. I never used to wear them at all but I am enjoying them lately. I'd like to expand to a better and more fitting multipurpose collection.
I am looking for a powder that I can easily fill my eyebrows in and Benefit's Brow Zings has recently caught my eye. Do you think this product is worth $32? If not, what other alternatives to powdered brow products do you have?
I would like suggestions on a good mascara for FULL lashes, not long & spiky. I am 67 & have been using Lancome Defincils for years. However, my lashes are thinning & I want fullness, not length. Should I try Hypnose? Or another brand besides Lancome? Is there a trick to applying mascara for fullness? Thank you.
Okay, so I am absolutely in love with the mascaras that Sephora has to offer, such as Benefit's They're Real! and Tarte's Lights! Camera! Lashes, but they always seem to weigh my lashes down after a couple of seconds. I always curl my lashes before applying these mascaras, and they just don't hold the curl. Any solutions as to how to get my curl to stay up?
I've heard a lot about this mascara lately and would like to try it. I've read quite a few mixed reviews, though. Most people seem to like it and say that it gives great results, but I've come across the occasional review stating that it would rub off on everything, did not last long, was too liquid-y, etc. I was wondering what your experiences were with it. Would you recommend it? Does Sephora offer samples of this mascara to test out?
So I recently got into high end mascaras. I've tried everyting from: Too Faced - Better Than Sex Benefit - BADgal Lash UD - Perversion Benefit - They're real Mascara The only one that I loved was the better than sex. It gave me incredible volume and length. Drugstore Mascara CoverGirl - Lash Blast (Orange tube) NYC - Big Bold Volume (I had to use this today, I didn't sleep home last night - NO MAKEUP BAG so I used this and it really wasn't bad $4.99 Loreal - Butterfly Effect So my question is, is it worth it to buy high end? I want to purchase the full size Too Faced - Better than sex or DIORshow. Please help me make the decision!! Thank you!
I'm getting married in a few months, and I'm looking for eye makeup inspiration. I'd like a look with bold false lashes (if anyone has suggestions for what brand, I'm all ears), and I'm trying to decide between a cut crease look, or a smokey eye. Just collecting inspiration photos at this point, so if you have any suggestions I'd love to hear them! For the rest of my look, I'll be wearing a long art deco inspired gown, and a messy bob. I'm a brunette, with very pale skin.
I have extremely sensitive skin and it is so difficult trying new ideas for under the eyes and face. I've tried Tarte (both to be exact) always seem to get a dry skin flare up under the eyes and sometimes even teary eyes. I recently purchases the concealer crayon from Josie Maran. It's hard to decide if it's bothering my eyes due to I only tried it twice. PS: I always feel like concealer doesn't properly cover my dark circles
What is the differences between the NARS Rue Bonaparte eyeliner and the TARTE nude inner rim brightener? I'm looking for a nude eyeliner to brighten the inner rim/neutralize redness? Which one is more effective or lasts longer?
Just wondering for those that have used this brand before what is the pigmentation on the eyeshadows like, never used this brand before but love these colors. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated thanks! Valerie
Hi guys! I'm looking for a new eyeshadow palette but I'm not sure which one to get! I currently have the LORAC Pro and Naked 3, and I'm looking for a palette that isn't similar (color-wise) to either of those. I was originally planning on getting the LORAC Unzipped palette but I felt like it was too similar to my Naked 3. I had the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette in mind, but I'm open to other suggestions! PS: I have brown eyes and I'm not really confident enough to wear bright colors like UD's Electric palette, lol. I also know that there's the LORAC Pro 2 but I'm not sure I could pull off cool toned colors ;~; Thanks!
