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. 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".

Q. Eyeshadow brushes
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'd like to stay around $120 CAD and I'd like to get it off Sephora.com of course.   Not sure whether I'm better off getting a set or individual brushes. 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. I'd like to stay under about $60 for an extra single brush.

Q. Color Eyeshadow Help!!!
Hi, there! I recently got interested in wearing eyeshadow all the time and all I'm able to do is the basic three-toned look with browns or peachy shadows. I love colors and I want to incorporate them in my makeup! The only problem is that I haven't been able to find a tutorial for adding a little pop of color without being too dramatic (I'd be wearing it throughout the day). If anyone could help, I'd greatly appreciate it! [also keep in mind that I haven't been doing makeup for very long, so a simple solution would be awesome ]

Q. How to keep WATERPROOF mascara from smudging?
I have oily eyelids and I've noticed at the end of the day that my waterproof mascara (which I apply to my top and bottom lashes) smudges in the creases underneath my lower lash line. Since my mascara is waterproof you think this wouldn't happen. Anyways, is there any way that I can prevent my mascara from smudging under my lower lash line and to keep my eyelids from looking so oily as it's not cute? Finally does Anastasia Lash Genius Waterproof Topcoat really work? I was thinking of maybe trying that with a non-waterproof mascara that I love in order to make it waterproof. Thanks

Q. Good gel liner?
Hi! So, my mom gave me a few early Christmas presents. I got the Sephora Cat-Eye Brush duo and the Sephora Waterproof Star Eyeshadow/liner. The brushes are great, but the eyeliner is a little flaky and isn't very opaque. I was thinking that I could heat it up or add eye drops because it seems dry, but it was sealed. I'm not sure if it's a cream shadow that could double as an eyeliner, so any suggestions would be great. Also, do any of you know any good gel liners that I could try? I want something that doesn't smudge very much because I have oily eyelids, and I would like it to be opaque.   Thanks, Sydney

Q. How are KVD eyeshadows compared to UD?
I've narrowed down my palette search to KVD's Spellbinding Shadow Book, UD's Vice 2, and possibly UD Naked 3. I use UD eyeshadows almost exclusively, they are super pigmented, long-wearing, and have a great texture. Do KVD eyeshadows work as well as they do?

Q. Which Palette should I get?!
Every Christmas I put an eyeshadow palette on my list, and I've having a bit of trouble deciding this year. I already have UD Naked, the Disney Princess Palettes, a green-eyed Sephora palette, an UD deluxe shadow box, and a giant Stila palette with almost every color imaginable. Now here are the Palettes on my wish list:   -UD Naked 2 -UD Naked 3 (released in December) -UD Vice 2 -Too Faced Joy to the Girls -Too Faced A Few of my Favorite Things -Smashbox the Master Class Palette II -KVD Spellbinding Eyeshadow Book   UD eyeshadows work really well for me, but I think the Naked 2 palette looks extremely similar to the first one. I really like the Naked 3 palette, but then I feel silly for not having the 2nd one. As for my looks, I have strawberry blonde hair, green eyes, and fair skin with pink undertones. Any help would be fantastic!

Q. What color of eye makeup will go good with hazel eyes?
I have roundish-almond eyes and they are a little more sunken in. They are hazel, but in sunlight they appear much more green. My eyes color has some gold flakes as well.   What eyeshadow color/brand would look really good with my eyes? It can be cream, powdered, etc. My eyes are sensitive, so it has to be suitable for sensitive eyes.   I am also looking for a mascara. Should I just stick with black; or a different color? I am looking for a mascara that will make my lashes look full and long. (A few of my eyelashes are a little shorter than they used to be since I had a bad experience with an eyelash curler..) Maybe one that will help my eyelashes grow back quicker?   I don't use eyeliner, but please suggest one just in case!   Thanks. xoxoxoxox

Q. Eyeshadow Ideas
I'm a true, copper red head, with fair skin and green eyes. I've been wanting some eye-shadow but don't really know what to know what to go for, I just know I'm bored with what I have. I have brown, copper, pink, purple (i'm wore out on purple), and nudes. I have yellow/gold as well but that's not something I like everyday.

Q. hi again!!!
ok i just gotta ask...is glitter makeup (glitter eyeliner on lid of eyes) out of style/outdated?? Like no longer in fashion or trend? i ask because yesterday i went to a shoot and the MUA there while taking off my makeup so she can do my makeup for the photoshoot said "oh you have/put glitter eyeliner/shadow?" and i said ya! and i asked why, is glitter like so 80's etc..not "in" anymore and she said yea, it's kind o tacky or whatever! um but it's weird, cuz when i do wear my sephora silver glitter eyeliner right on top of my eyeliner on my eyelids, i get compliments everywhere i go!! (from females of course); like even at the drive-thru windows, at the mall, etc...women just say how pretty the glitter is or that they like my glitter eyes! but after hearing that MUA say that to me..idk; i like my eyes when i put glitter on them
