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?
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!
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".
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.
I want to use a brow pencil to fill in my brows and make them seem a bit thicker because the hairs are really thin/light; but no matter what color I choose, it doesn't work. Are there any tips that may help me in my search for a good brow pencil?
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 ]
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
So, I just got my Urban Decay Anarchy Face Case in the mail today... LOVE IT ALREADY! It's as amazing as I thought it would be! Now I was just wondering if y'all would tell me a recipe for an eye look that included the Urban Decay shades: Redemption, Fray, Vaporize, Provocateur, and Revolt. Thanks!
Hi, I'm looking for an eyeliner recommendation from those more experienced with eyeliner than me. Here are what I am looking for in an eyeliner: Black. The eyeliner recommendation has to be a highly pigmented black. Easy to use. I am pretty new to using eyeliner, so I want an eyeliner made for beginners. Not too expensive. My price range is $25 and under. Thanks in advance for the recommendations.
It seems that no matter what product I put under my eye area, all it seems to do is emphasizes my crevices and wrinkles. I look pretty good in other facial areas but look like a complete old bag under the eyes. Please list all products that really work from serums to concealer and how to apply them. I've tried so many - Estee Lauder Eye Serum, etc. Nothing has helped me so far and I'm SO desperate! Thank you!
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
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?
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!
I've been using the Maximum Volume Boots mascara in black and it works like a dream. It goes on smooth with absolutely no clumps or smudging. I was wondering if anyone has come across anything similar in their sephora shopping?
Hey! this is my first post/ question and I used to never ever use mascara but I've started to recently but all I have are really harsh waterproof ones (because I swim) that seem to really ruin my already super short eyelashes. I really like the flare effect of lashes and I was wondering if there was a miracle mascara out there that would lengthen my super short, small lashes, strengthen them as well as providing that flare-y effect thing I really want x) Thanks!!!
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
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. I also own some orange and green but find they don't look very good on me for some reason. I was thinking maybe about peach since it's something I've never tried. Any good peach recommendations or other color options?
I have a previous NYX eyeliner that was the most beautiful creamy color, but it was bound in a plastic case like this Sephora one: http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?s kuId=1473842 . I'm thinking about buying this sephora one, however I need to know if I'll be able to Sharpen it first Thanks!
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
