I recently purchased Urban Decay eye shadow single in "toasted." I was hoping for any recommendation on another eye shadow colour to give "toasted" more depth and compliment the colour. For reference, my skin tone is fair-medium (very similar to Kim Kardashian's complexion, as much as I dislike making that comparison it's the only celebrity I can think of). My eyes are deep set and I also have severe dark circles (which I cover with concealer but that can only do so much) so I can't use very dark colours that would enhance my dark circles or give the illusion my eyes are receding to the back of my skull. My eye colour is also a super dark hazel. Any recommendation would be appreciated! EDIT: I wanted to have toasted on the eyelid/as a base. But any advice on how to use it (such as it being a highlighter or crease colour) is fine. I'm not dead set on needing it to be the eyelid colour or anything. I'm open to any recommendation- doesn't even have to be Urban Decay!
I've been searching high and low for a decent liquid liner that's NOT waterproof or long-lasting! I know, I know... I sound crazy. But, I wear eyelash extensions now and cannot wear long lasting eyeliner. I was so sad to give up my Stilla liner... Please help!
I am looking to try a new mascara! I consistently switch between They're Real and Lash Domination. I'm just wanting to try something new and have heard great things about both Better Than Sex and Roller Lash. What would be your recommendations on them?
I have light, neutral toned skin with dark brown hair and hazel (brown/green/gold) eyes. I prefer a satin or matte finish, no glitter or heavy shimmer. Slight shimmer that won't fall on my cheeks is definitely ok! Thank you!!
I love the look of thick, long, full lashes but mine aim kind of down, they are also thin (but long!). I was wondering what mascara I should use and if there are any other tricks I could try. I'm Korean and have the mono lid that so many other Asian girls do. Thanks in advance!
I've tried lots of mascara's but most of them are very irritating for my eyes. I have very fine lashes, and heavy formulas seem to be heavy. Would anybody recommend a good Natural or Gel based mascara?
I have a very hard time trying to determine what eye shape I have and was wondering if I could get some help. I watched Sephora and Smashbox's video on YouTube but I am still having some difficulty. I was wondering if anyone would be able to tell me what eyeshape I have and what eyeshadow/eyeliner looks would work best. Thanks!
I have a bit of a weakness for bright, intense, and oftentimes wild color choices when it comes to eyeshadows. So it really comes to no surprise to me that I often look to UD for colors and inspirations. But I distinctly remember seeing, a few months back, the new (at the time) Vice 3 palette, and I mainly wanted to throw my money at the cashiers for just the two colors that stood out to me: Bondage and Sonic. They were both gorgeous red shades, and I suppose I'm a sucker for red. Then it just disappeared. I know that their main site probably still sells the palette, but in retrospect I'd be mainly paying $60 for two colors. So... no. What I want to know is One: If it WAS pulled from the stores and I'm NOT going crazy, and Two: Are there any other brands that make red shadow tones? I think Make Up For Ever makes a bright red loose pigment that I may use to blend with other colors, and it's in the back of my mind, but I was more curious to know if there are more options out there?
Hello everyone! I want to buy a good crease brush but I hesitate between the Nars # 44 and the MUFE # 216. I already have the Mac 217 and Mac 224 but I find they are too big for my eyes. I have big eyes and my crease is actually very hard to find... So, which one should I buy and why? I'm open to other brushes too!! If they are available in Canada...more precisely in Québec or Ontario! Thanks for all your input!
Hello Everyone! I have a couple of questions that I have tried to research but I am getting conflicting reviews and products. I have been a big fan of Benefits Bad Gal lashes for a long time but I have noticed that the mascara doesn't last as long as I would like it too. I have also used They're Real by Benefit but my eyelashes would stick together and I found it difficult to take off. I have thin short eye lashes and I am wanting to find a mascara that will make my almond shaped eyes full, lengthy, and doe eyed. I do not wear much make up, usually mascara and eyeshadow. I am wanting something to make my eyes POP with a full feathery long eye lashes, without using false eyelashes. I am terrible at putting them on and eye lash extensions are too pricey to maintain. I would love some recommendations of amazing mascaras that I would be able to try and LOVE. Also, I am also interested in getting into a more neutral look with my eye shadow. I have kind of green/brown with a small hint of blue eyes. I do not like bright colors like purple or blue. Any suggestions on mascara and eyeshadow that would help would be amazing! Also my skin is also very light, phfff winter. Thank you so much for your advice. Britt
what's the best way to makeup your eyes if you have monolids? (Asian eyes...you don't have the extra crease above your eyelid) because I wouldn't wear eyeshadow because it doesn't turn out right on me, so what all can I do?
I've never tried eye shadow before, but I really want to start. I'm just not sure what colors would look good on me! I have medium skin with a yellow undertone (more specifically 3Y08). What colors or even eye shadow palettes would you guys recommend for me?
The liner I am using for my top and bottom water lines only lasts about two hours then just disappears and I have to reapply it over and over. Anyone have experience with eyeliners that has stayed on water lines for a few hours? If so what brands??
The last couple of lash primers I tried (which, to be fair, was a while ago) were really disappointing---causing a lot of flaking & clumping. That said, I'd really like to find a great one that does a good job of conditioning & protecting my lashes. From what I hear it seems like DiorShow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum and Givenchy's Mister Lash are probably the best two, but was hoping for some feedback on which is better. Update: Based on the advice you guys gave me I got the Dior, and it is amazing!
I am wanting to purchase some UD eyeshadows online. I want some good neutral colors for an everyday look. Not very good at picking out colors, which is why I generally purchase palettes. Which UD shadows look best together to make a nice neutral (not too dark or light) smokey everyday look? I have olive toned skin that is light-medium, brown eyes and blonde hair. Thanks guys!
Hi! So I work in a coffee shop so there are times (well lots actually) where I have to be there by 5 AM! I also live a half an hour away so I wake up at 4 to get ready for work. I normally just apply a pencil eyeliner (Specifically Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner) and mascara. However, during the day with my monolids, my eyeliner will fade and wont' last very long. I tried primer and foundation and that didn't work as well. How can I do a quick eyeliner make up routine that stays put and doesn't require me to wake up an extra 15 minutes to get ready for work. =)
It will fade dramatically or smear all over my eyes. This is very frusterating, especially since I have tried DOZENS of eyeliners. I have tried no-smudge, liquid, and even eyeshadow used as eyeliner. What can I do?
