What type of mascara wand would I need in order to get a similar affect as the eyelashes at the following link #6 without using false lashes? Could you also give me some mascara examples?  http://www.stylecraze.com/articles/tips-and-tricks -to-make-small-eyes-appear-bigger/

Q. Looking for a LIFEPROOF (smudgeproof, *actually* waterproof, etc) eyeliner--any recommendations?
I'm going on vacation to a tropical place renowned for beaches, but notorious for rain. I'm also going with my boyfriend, who always manages to smudge off my eyeliner one way or another. In other words, my makeup doesn't stand a chance.    Has anyone tried a genuinely smudge-proof, waterproof liner that they could recommend? My current go-to is Tarte's clay liner, but I hear they reformulated it--and even then, the old formula could never withstand even light beach time anyway.   I'd prefer some kind of pot liner, but I'd be totally fine with a liquid too--I just can't really do pencil liners because I'm not skilled enough to create crisp lines with them. Thanks!

Black liner smudges under my eyes
Everyday a couple hours after I do my makeup, I have these weird black smudges under my eyes (around lower lashline) lately. I have no idea how to get rid of those smudges. I always use one one eyeliner pencil and it was never happended before. Can you please give me a suggestion?

Ciate Skinny Shadow Stick
Has anyone purchased or tried any of the Ciate Skinny Shadow Sticks?     I was really surprised to see a Ciate section in the Powell Street store since it reopened. I went looking for their blush but noticed these as well. They have a spongy tip that seems like it could apply almost like a spongy version of a Sharpie. The shade range reminded me of the GA Eye Tints.    If you like products like the LM Caviar Sticks, these might be interesting to you. I might have bought one but it seemed like out of the 10 or so shades, about 6 of them had wandered off.

New Sephora Collection Colorful Eyeshadow Photo Filter Palettes
I was just looking through the palettes to see if there were any new ones and I stumbled across these. I fell in love with these instantly. I hope that they'll come into stores soon since I checked the website for stock locally and it said they aren't yet available anywhere nearby.   They both look gorgeous and both are summery in their own way.   http://www.sephora.com/colorful-eyeshadow-photo-fi lter-palette-P398082?skuId=1669969

My UD Electric Palette Scares me
First me say that the colors are sooooo beautiful and bright. But it's one of those palettes that can easily make you look like you work kids' parties... know whadamean?   I'm wearing it today at work, and I ended up using the purples and blues and blending them out really well. But I'm curious what has worked for you when you have really bright eyeshadow colors you want to use.   I've looked at the YouTube videos for this palette, and they are wearing way too much eyeshadow for my taste. Any tips? I'd really love to be able to jazz up a look but still keep it non-kids party.   Thanks, lovelies!

Eyeshadow Transfers to Upper Lid- Even With Primer!

Best brown mascara?
Ive tried hundreds of mascara and I usually go for ink blacker than black. Sinful lash was discontinued *sadface* but then I luckily found love in better than sex mascara. However I need a brown for days that I want a softer look. I have to wear mascara no matter what as I'm naturally a red head and my lashes are invisible without it. I don't like them feeling stiff or waxy but I love volume. Any recommendations?

What brand makes the best colorful pencil eyeliners?
I've been on the hunt for colorful  pencil  eyeliners. Specifically colors that are bright, light blue, teals, and turquoises. If they are shimmery eyeliners than those would be even better. I know there are a lot of liquid liners in these colors, but I prefer pencil liners, so what brands would you reccomend?

Marc Jacobs Beauty
I watched a Marc Jacobs beauty video and the make up artist put the gel highliner all over the eyelid. I was interested in doing a similar look. Would putting the highliner all over the lid extend the wear of my eyeshadow, or would I need to use an eye primer before hand?

Q. mascaras comparable to Fairydrop's Scandal Queen?
Fairydrop's Scandal Queen mascara has been the best mascara for my straight asian lashes. After I curl my lashes with the Shu Uemura curler, one coat of Scandal Queen will lengthen, hold the curl all day, not smudge under my eyes, and wash off easily.   Now that it's been discontinued I'm trying to find another mascara that will work for me, any suggestions?

Loyal to no mascara
I used to be a Benefit Yes They're Real girl hardcore. But as I try out more mascaras, I realize that I use specific ones for different occasions. I still use Benefit, but it's probably about 3 or 4 on my list of faves now.   My top mascara is Two Faced Better Than Sex. The formula is so great, and the wand is amazing! This is my work mascara, but I can also vamp it up for evenings.   My other mascara that I love is my Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara. I have to thank a Sephora castmate for recommending this mascara to me like 2 years ago. I love how it looks!   So yeah, I use 3 different mascaras, which is crazy.

Oily Lids!!! No Primer works anymore
I never really had a problem with my eye shadow creasing until a few months ago. I use eye shadow primer and it creases within a couple of hours! and by the end of the day its a complete mess!   I first thought that they were over producing oil because they needed more moisturizing. I began to use an eye cream. That made things worse.    I have tried these primers    Urban Decay Primer Potion Lorac Behind the Scenes Primer Mac Paint Pot in Soft Ocre Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base Mac Prep and Prime 24 HR Extended Eye Base Too Faced Shadow Insurance   I also have tried to stop the creasing by setting the primer with a eye shadow that is close to my skin color.    if you have any recommendations please let me know! with the summer months coming I have a feeling it will be getting worse.

Georgio Armani Eye Tints
Hello! So last week, I was wandering around Sephora and came across the Marc Jacobs eye sticks. When I inquired about them and their blendability - I was led over to the Armani Eye Tints instead. I ended up swatching several of these in store, and took 4 shades home with me to play with: Jade, Shadow, Flannel, and Rose Ashes.    I was surprised when I didn't find much on the boards about these past when they were initially launched - and was just wondering if anyone had any experiences or favorite looks with these?   So far, I really like Rose Ashes by itself and layered over Shadow. Same with Flannel. I haven't been brave enough to wear Jade out yet, alone or layered over Shadow (though I have tried the later and it has a nice effect for sure).   I'm definitely curious about the darker colors but always have such a hard time pulling them off!

Tips for preventing fallout?
This question is probably pretty basic, but I kind of new at this. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!   I recently purchased Urban Decay's Ammo Palette and overall love it. The neutrals are lovely shimmery bronzy and the colors are gorgeous. However, every time I apply the sparkly shades (Mowie Wowie, Chopper) I turn into Princess Glitterface. Glitter on the eyes=great. Glitter on the eyes, cheeks, upper lip=a little too much for my office environment. Brushing at it with a large soft brush doesn't seem to remove anything.   What techniques do you recommend to prevent this? I use a primer and put the eyeshadow on after applying BB cream, which makes my face a bit more tacky in texture. Should I put the shadows on first, then apply BB cream or foundation?
