My eyelashes are VERY straight and thin. Do any of you know of a mascara that can thicken them and keep them curled? They always go flat after a few seconds! I've only ever been able to use CoverGirl's LashBlast Waterproof mascara and want to try something else.
I've gotten to the point where I hardly wear eyeliner anymore, because it seems to just keep smudging onto my contacts. Which, in turn, blinds me, for all intents and purposes. It's gotten quite frustrating and I was just wondering if anyone else has this problem? I primarily use UD's 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil, but I've tried other pencils and have had the same problem. It's hit or miss, doesn't happen every single time.. But too often to be a fluke. I'm not an eye-rubber at all (due to a debilitating fear of eyeball germies), so that's not the problem. Sometimes it'll happen minutes after I apply liner and sometimes it'll happen after a few hours. I'm not a fan of liquid or gel liners, but if that's what it takes, I might consider making the switch. But I'm afraid to invest in new eyeliner products, only to suffer the same fate.
I have started cleaning my mascara wands using a makeup brush spray cleanser. I started doing this to keep the wand nice and free from clumps. Does this extend the mascara/help keep bacteria from forming in the tube?
Hi all! Just recently I've had issues with my waterline eyeliner creating smudges and black marks on my contact lenses, and/or irritating my eyes (but mainly the first two). The brands that have caused these contact lens issues are (in addition with some other problems): Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner Urban Decay 24/7 (lasted only about two hours) Marc Jacobs Highliner (lasted only about four hours) NARS Larger Than Life (does not even apply to my waterline anymore) I was curious if any of the contact lens wearers have any suggestions for a long-lasting, easy to apply, and non-irritating / non-smudging. I would appreciate any suggestions Thank you!
I feel like now there are so many different mascaras that sometimes/most of the time I just don't wear one. Right now my combination to get them looking extra sassy is: Dior Diorshow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum Benefit They're Real Mascara Make Up Forever Smoky Extravagant Mascara This combo makes my lashes look like falsies!! Share your favorite mascara/mascara combos!! I'd like to try some out

Hi all! Awhile ago I did a post on what eye shadow palette I should get for Christmas- I was mainly interested in matte shadows. But now I'm kind of changing my mind and looking into the Naked Palettes from Urban Decay! As long as they aren't full or glitter or fall out, I'm good! But my question is, (for people who own all 3 or even just one of them), what is the difference between the Naked 1, 2, & 3? I have heard that the Naked 1 is more warm toned, but I'm still not sure. If anyone has any swatches of them I'd love to see a picture(s). I prefer more natural shades, too. If it helps any I have red hair, light(ish) complexion, and brown eyes. I know a lot of people love these palettes, and it makes me interested in them and want one of my own! Hopefully they aren't glitter shades. To me they look a little shimmerish, maybe metallic, and maybe some matte. And Hopefully the color pay off is good too- and the colors last all day and don't fade.(?) I always use UD potion primer anyway though! Thank you! ~XOXOXO
Hi there! Does anyone know a good dupe for the Laura Mercier caviar stick in Sugar Frost? I'm obsessed with the color/formula but I've already gone through 2 of them and I'd love to see if I could find a similar color that's a little less pricey. Thank you for your suggestions!
Any advice on the best long wearing pencil eyeliner? I've tried so many!! I've tried Urban Decay, Makeup Forever, Chanel, Nars and they all smudge under my eyes. I'd say the best that I tried was Nars,but just looking for something better. Thanks in advance!!
Hi, lovelies! I'm going to Europe for three weeks and I have no clue on what eye makeup I should pack and how I should pack it. I have these palettes: Urban Decay: Naked Basics, Naked 1 and Naked 2 Electric Vice 3 Vice LTD Pulp Fiction Glinda Smoked Too Faced: Natural Eyes Chocolate Bar I also have a Z palette with some Urban Decay singles.
So I am looking for a good hypoallergenic eyeshadow palette from a brand other than Clinique. My eyes get very itchy whenever i put eyeshadow on them. I have tried elf, urban decay, and even bare minerals all with bad results. Any suggestions? Thanks, Sarah
I have dark blueish under eye circles (thanks genetics) and have been searching for a color corrector in a salmon hue. I have run through the drug store in my quest and decided to try the high end. This has been a hit and miss search and I am becoming increasingly frustrated. Most of the products that tout themselves as a "color corrector" on Sephora are sparkly pink or yellow and sheer coverage. I don't want to have to build it up to get coverage, cause too much product will just fail in the long run. I am a neutral fair complexion. Fairly Light in Bare Minerals foundation.
My eyelashes are straight. I've tried Revlon and Tweezerman eyelash curlers. Mascaras I have tried: Benefit They're Real, Maybelline Great Lash, Lancôme Hypnose, and Maybelline Miss Manga. After using the above curlers and mascara's my eyelashes become straight a few hours later. Any rec's for an eyelash curler? Mascara that will hold a curl? Thanks!
I have extremely sensitive eyes and allergies. I have previously had reactions to some makeup brands and mascaras, and when my allergies are especially bad, I usually don't wear mascara at all (and opt for fake lashes). However, with summer here, I'm finding it really difficult to find a waterproof mascara that matches the results of my every day mascaras without making my eyes puff up. Mascara brands I find myself unable to wear are Make Up Forever, and Too Faced. My everyday mascaras are Perversion by Urban Decay, and Hypnose by Lancome. I have the waterproof version of Hypnose (what I'm using currently) but am unhappy with the results. If anyone knows a good brand to try that won't flake or irritate my eyes (gentle formula), but would give the volume of a regular mascara, it would be greatly appreciated!
Hello, I am just starting to use makeup and I would like to wear mascara. I am a red head so my eyelashes are light. I would prefer to have a mascara that is not a dramatic change like the blacks and browns it comes in so I was wondering if eyebrow gel works on eyelashes because that is the only thing that comes in a color I like. Could I use eyebrow makeup as mascara?
I have such a hard time trying to get my wings the same shape. My eyes are slightly different and one is more open than the other. what is a fool proof way to be able to get my wings to be the same shape and size
I stopped into my local store during lunch to pick up a Surratt Blush and started playing with the eye shadows. The one I was most interested in purchasing was sold out in store, but there were several I liked and seemed to blend together well when I was swatching them. I know that Surratt gets alot of love on BT for their blushes, but I'm curious if anyone here has any experience with the eye shadows? If so, any favorites?
I was never an eyeshadow person, but lately I've been trying it out more and more. I'm trying to find what shadows work best for hazel eyes. Is there any palette that is aimed for hazel eyes? I've been trying greens, reds, and purples to bring out the green in my eyes, but I feel like they sometimes look a little harsh since against my pale skin. Does anyone have any eyeshadow recommendations? I am also searching for a light lilac/lavender eyeshadow with a metallicy shimmer to it. Anyone know of a shadow that goes with that description?? Thanks a ton in advance
I just purchased an eye pencil in Diving Malaysia from the SEPHORA COLLECTION Contour Eye Pencil 12hr Wear Waterproof . The color is a perfect match for my dark brown eyes. I need help finding an eye shadow preferably powder in the same shade. Can anyone help?
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!
