Q. I have monolids, what are some good eyeshadow looks without creating a fake crease?
I really want to get into working with eyeshadows, but I have monolids and can't find that many tutorials and tips. I really like colours and would love to incorporate colours into everyday looks. I was wondering what are some suggestions for applying colourful eyeshadow to monolids without creating a fake crease?

Q. Naked 3 vs Sweet Peach vs Chocolate bar
I'm younger so I prefer natural eye looks that accentuate my blue/grey eyes without overpowering my fair/blond coloring. I have the naked basics pallete and am looking to make a larger pallete purchase. I'm not very into darker makeup or like a smokey or sultry look. Suggestions?

Q. need MAJOR help with concealer/powder!!! -__-'
Hi everyone! I usually just browse, but have never had many questions, until now, lol I have the urban decay primer potion in original hourglass veil mineral primer nars radiant creamy concealer and laura mercier translucent setting powder and the urban decay setting spray also as a reference i have attached a pic of my eye without anything and with. i have some very fine lines nothing too crazy, but lots of purple ( runs in family )  i am 30.   I have googled like crazy, browsed youtube, and no matter what I try, I CAN'T find a solution to this problem anywhere. I don't understand why, but no matter what this concealer cakes up on me HARDCORE. is it just not right for me??? is it the powder? i don't know what the issue is...sigh. I will be going to sephora this weekend to try to buy the right concealer but would like your opinions and advice. i don't want to keep having to go and exchanging all the time and the closest sephora to me is not that close lol so yeah, as soon as I put concealer and setting powder on, within a few minutes, the concealer breaks apart no matter/cracks/sets into fine lines.horribly. my other makeup is fine. as a reference if it helps in you helping me, my HG foundation that i love and my skin seems to love is the MUFE Ultra HD. i wear shade y225. i moisturize and prime, yada yada yada.  i don't think i am doing anything wrong.  The only thing I have read online that possibly makes sense is people with drier skin seem to not do well with the Nars concealer. my skin isn't particularly dry but it's definitely on the drier then oilier side. so maybe that is why...i really don't know. ugh i rambled on a lot, your turn now!

I am getting good, but uneven, growth from using Latisse, but not much volume.  The bad thing is my lashes are now growing crooked.  Has anyone found a mascara that does a good job of adding the volume and straightening?  I don't really need added length at this point.

Q. purple eyeliner allergy
 I have found that I am now allergic to purple eyeliner and possibly shadow because of the dye used I believe. I was wondering if anyone else has the same problem and found a brand that does not make them re-act like you have pink eye. My eyes are hazel and purple makes em pop so nice, I am desperate to find a brand that doesnt use the common red dye that is causing this reaction! Any info would be great!

Hi! I have nicely shaped and moderately full eyebrows, however, I'm looking for a product to add a little bit of structure to them.

Q. recommend palette to complement my current ones?
Hellooo! So currently this is my lineup:   - Naked 2 - Naked Smokey - Naked Basics 1 - bh 88 matte   I'm considering: - KVD Shade + Light - Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte - Too Faced Chocolate Bar - Open to other suggestions!   I'd looove to get all of them, but alas, I am poor and can only shell out for one.. so which do I get?!    CRITERIA: - Would like more reddish tones - Complements what I currently have (not too much overlap in colors) - I prefer mattes, but I don't mind a couple shimmers. - My skin tone is umm.. tan asian skin?

Q. eyebrow help
So I have been using the Anastasia dip brow pomade to fill in my brows for a while now (i have very very light eyebrow hairs). But when i fill them in it always comes out sort of ashy and when overhead light shines on them, they sort of disappear. It looks really unnatural and its obvious they are colored in. I even tried buying the proper angled brush to help. Maybe I bought the wrong color? Am I pressing too hard while applying? When i watch tutorials their eyebrows always look smooth and flawless but mine just turn out, for a lack of better words... crusty! Please Help! Thanks so much!
