Q. Make Up Advice
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

Q. Makeup for Monolids?
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?

Q. What eye shadow colors would look good on my skin tone?
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?

Q. Eyeliner that won't disappear

Q. Best lash primer?
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!

Q. How to get pencil eyeliner to stay on for monolids?
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. =)

Q. My eyelashes won't hold a curl.
My eyelashes used to hold a curl all day no matter what. Then I started using Vaseline to take off my makeup and then I noticed my lashes weren't holding a curl so I stopped using it, and they went back to normal. Then my lashes only started to hold a curl with waterproof mascara, and now nothing. I've always used to heated lash curler, I've tried about seven different mascaras and nothing works. I just bought Sephoras lash stretcher which is supposed to curl but it didn't help at all. I heat my lash curler, curl my lashes, then apply mascara, and about 10 seconds later they're straight. Does anyone know why my eyelashes won't hold a curl anymore? It's so frustrating because I love when my lashes are curled! It just makes my eyes and makeup look better. Is there anything I could try? Mascara, primer, lash serum? Anything you recommend?

Q. Best Eyeliner for the waterline?
I need an eyeliner that will stay put on the waterline and won't run, smudge or fade. I've tried Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner Pencil's and they didn't work. I'm wondering if MAKEUP FOR EVER Eyeliner Pencil or Too Faced Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner would work for the waterline? I have oily eyelids and watery eyes and not much money to spend on high end makeup so I REALLY need an eyeliner that can stay put on the waterline. I'm hoping my search for the perfect holy grail eyeliner will end.

Q. Got Clarisonic?
Hey gals!!!!!! I want a Clarisonic, but I cannot afford one right now. I tried eBay, but they are just as much on there as they are normally...well a few dollars cheaper, but not much... My question is this: is there anyone who has one who regrets it and wants to sell it to me? I will trade a whole bunch of products or just outright buy it. I don't need the cleanser or a head, I can buy those. I don't care about the color or if it's a Mia 1 or 2?..although I'd prefer pink or something colorful. I just need the actual unit and charger, and whatever else make it work. If you have the other stuff, great, but if not, I just want what makes it work so I can get my skin clear. I have a PayPal acct, or check, or money order... I love in Baltimore, MD so shipping may be an issue but UDPS has a flat rate box we can put it in. I ship all the time on eBay. I also want one that works, so Id be willing to trust the person that it does work and it isn't broken... So, help me? Let's Reduce, reuse, and recycle beauty products...

Q. Tightlined eyeliner always slides down below my bottom lashes to make an unwanted raccoon look!!
I am asian with double eyelids, but my crease is so thin that I can't apply eyeliner over my lashline. (It looks really weird. I used to never use top eyeliner). I always only tightline.    But I also have an oily eye area, so when I do tightline and go outside for a few hours, it ends up sliding down and pooling around the outer bottom corners!!   I've heard about using eye primer for sliding eye makeup but I can't do that if I only tightline!! Do I need to prime the bottom of my eye? Would waterproof eyeliner work?

Q. MUFE Full Cover Concealer Question
I have been using MUFE concealer and I've been loving it. I love the coverage and the finish. However, I recently switched to YSL Touche Express as my eye gel. Now, everytime I use my concealer it stings unbearably like acid. Is this because of the combination of the 2 products? Do you have a similar experience with the MUFE concealer?     There are other concealers that I also like in terms of coverage, but those other concealers constantly move around. The MUFE is the only one that stays put on me. Any suggestions?     Thanks!

Q. Ridiculously Oily Eyelids! HELP!
So I've always had really oily eyelids and it's so bad that even if I don't wear eye shadow, my foundation creases in my lid! I've used primers by Too Faced, Urban Decay, and even Cover FX but, after a while they don't work anymore. It's so annoying to have so many beautiful eye shadows and not wear them confidently because they all get hidden and smudged and just overall gross in my crease.

I recently just bought the Naked, Naked2 and Naked3 palettes and I love them, however, the brush doesn't seem to be working that well for me and it hurts my eyes.   I'm pretty new to this and I have no idea what to get.

I really need all the help I can get.   Thanks!     EDIT I just ordered the Kat von D 5 piece brush set with case, if you guys think I need another eyeshadow brush with that, shoot.

Q. Eyebrow Problem?
I have thick eyebrows and I'm used to getting them waxed and all that fun (expensive) stuff mostly because I don't like tweezers, they freak me out. There's only ever been one time when I actually was really happy the way my eyebrows came out with waxing. Since that hasn't happened, I've been getting my friend to do them for me. That worked for a while until she took TOO MUCH LENGTH OFF THE BACK. I cried (not really). I do color them with eye shadow and I tried pencils and gels and all that but I don't ever really get them to look nice. My questions are, should I just get over the fact of tweezers and just buy them (and anything else I need) and do them myself? and I'm also looking for products for my eyebrows, I need good ones. I had the Benefit Brow Zings, but it made my eyebrows kind of slicked down instead of "natural".
