So I have green. slightly hazel eyes and medium brown hair with natural golden highlights. I also stay pretty pale throughout the year. Do you have any suggestions for eye makeup? PS-I have sensitive skin and eyes PPS- This is how I've been doing my eyes.
Hi BT! I am trying to decide which Bent Eyeliner brush to purchase. My favorite kind of eyeliner is gel and I've been applying it with an normal angled brush (MAC 263). However, I can't seem to get a good winged out liner look with it. After doing some research, it seems that the best and easiest gel eyeliner brushes are the bent ones. Now I'm having trouble deciding between the Laura Mercier version and the Sephora Pro version. The LM is 3$ more expensive than the Sephora but I'm worried that the brush on the Sephora will be too thick. I like to be able to have both thin and thick eyeliner, though I generally go for thin. Which one do you think I should choose? Please let me know if you have tried this brush style and even if you haven't!
Hi ladies! I was browsing in my local Sephora after work today and saw that Anastasia has a bright blue mascara and also a purple one! It looked like so much fun especially with summer coming around the bend. Just wondering if anyone is planning to sport a colored mascara this summer? Dannyc, weren't you looking for a Chanel one a few weeks ago? Did you ever find "the one"? I would love something blue/greenish with a sparkly finish!
What's better, a gel liner or a cream liner? Not sure what the difference is since I'm torn between buying Bobbi browns gel pot or Loracs cream liner pot.....need something that will last all day since I have oily lids!
So, I am looking for a new palette. Now, I am fair skin with dark brown eyes and hair. As for color choices, it really doesn't matter. I have LORAC'S Pro Palette, UD Feminine Palette and.. one from Bare Minerals (which I cannot remember which one). Suggestions?
Wasnt convinced that this was worth the 30.00 , until people at work started to ask if I was wearing fake lashes! So i guess it does work after all... I prefer to use it with a primer instead of mascara then fibers then mascara again!
Hey Guys! So much like a lot of others I'm a fan of the cat eye/winged eyeliner look. However, on my right eye, my skin creases a little right in the corner where the wing would emerge. I've tried pulling the skin flat, but then when I let it go it kind of just turns into a blob. Does anyone with a similar issue have any advice? Oh, and I have a kohl pencil (which tends to smudge so I don't use it as often) the Ardency Inn Punker eyeliner and Clinique's gel eyeliner too.
I have the Nars Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in black that I use for tight lining, as well as lining the rest of my eye. This was suggested by a CM in a fee standing store, so I went with it. I've been on a purple makeup spree lately, and I was wondering what people thought of tightlining using purple. Is tightlining something better done in black or would purple look good also (depending on the rest of the makeup)?? I was debating on getting the same eyeliner by Nars in the color Bourbon Street. I'm wondering if there are better options out there, an eyeliner for tightlining thats so amazing and I'm missing out??? The Larger than Life liner works well, it does need to be reapplied after so long, but for the most part stays on and acts waterproof. I was thinking that is the best it gets when working in an area that stays wet on your eye. I'm up for suggestions for black or purple eyeliner.
I love my Urban Decay Naked Basics palette. Unfortunately, I use WOS (Walk of Shame) way more than any of the other colors. I'm going to be so sad when this runs out... do any of you know if Urban Decay makes this color separately or has a near-perfect dupe? I like other brands too, but every time I use Urban Decay I just remember why I love their shadows so much... rich, creamy, no fallout...
SO! I have very straight lashes.. I mean like camel straight... (lol) fairly long when curled the problem is, they've discontinued the mascara that works best for me (Maybelline sky high curves - only the waterproof version) This mascara held a curl ALL day (after using an eyelash curler) and even after sleeping! I've tried YSL mascara and while it smells lovely, it doesn't hold the curl, or extend my regular lashes for that "false" lash look. Any suggestions on a great one? thanks!
I've gotten to the point where I hardly wear eyeliner anymore, because it seems to just keep smudging onto my contacts. Which, in turn, blinds me, for all intents and purposes. It's gotten quite frustrating and I was just wondering if anyone else has this problem? I primarily use UD's 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil, but I've tried other pencils and have had the same problem. It's hit or miss, doesn't happen every single time.. But too often to be a fluke. I'm not an eye-rubber at all (due to a debilitating fear of eyeball germies), so that's not the problem. Sometimes it'll happen minutes after I apply liner and sometimes it'll happen after a few hours. I'm not a fan of liquid or gel liners, but if that's what it takes, I might consider making the switch. But I'm afraid to invest in new eyeliner products, only to suffer the same fate.
I'm a natural red head I'm not the palest but am light I have light brown eyes kinda amber ish . Im looking to buy a palette from Sephora and want to get the best one for me. I burnt out on my browns and purples any ideas?
I have never worn false lashes before, however I would like to get a fuller and longer look. Has anyone ever tried this? I have seen a couple videos reviewing this product on youtube and read others on blogs, but I would like to know what you all think about it! Please let me know! (:
For me its the UD vice palette. Its gorgeous and i love the colors but i don't reach for it, i should have just waited on the singles to come out. ive used it maybe 2-3xs but it was so long ago that its too late to return it. Whats your regretted purchase?
Hey guys , I have very oily skin/lids and it's been really hard for me trying to find a gel liner that does not smudge throughout the day as a result of my oily skin. The eyeliner on my lids stay pretty well but my wings always fade and smudge down to the bottom of my eye and I just hate it.. I prefer gel liners because they look more natural and they are easier to smooth outl - although liquid eyeliners are better in terms of how they do stay on my lids, they just aren't the look I am going for I absolutely hate the Bobbi Brown eyeliner and I have tried the Tarte and Smashbox gel liners and they still smudge no matter what I do - EVEN IF I PUT PRIMER ON BEFOREHAND!!! I don't trust the stila smudge pots and the YSL gel liner has toxic ingredients... HELP !! **** UPDATE UPDATE **** !!!! Hi everyone, thank you for the great suggestions keep them coming if you can because I've seen some awesome suggestions. I just bought Make Up Forever's cream liner and it's f*cking awesome, to say the least. My wings don't budge although there is some slight smudging on the bottom corners... HOWEVER, the actual shape of the wings DO NOT change. ** THIS IS DEFINITELY AN UNDERRATED CREAM EYELINER AND THOSE WITH SIMILAR PROBLEMS TO ME SHOULD REALLY TRY IT ** My eyes, nose and forehead are extremely oily - like sto0o0opid Asian skin oily and it's hard to find things that stay all day. But seriously - stop listening to the "best sellers" and "top rated" choices and really DIG to find out what's good for you and what ALSO HAS GREAT RATINGS EVEN THOUGH IT'S NOT ON THE FIRST 2 PAGES OF THE SEPHORA PAGES ******** This just goes to show you that the most "popular" or most talked about/heard about WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT - are NOT always the best. Keep the suggestions coming because I want to find the ultimate solution to stop that smudging!!!! xoxo
It contains 5 mini mascaras and then a certificate to get one of your choice: http://www.sephora.com/lash-stash-to-go-P379131?sk uId=1508332 This set contains: - Mascara voucher - 0.14 oz Benefit BADgal Lash in Black - 0.2 oz BUXOM Lash in Blackest Black - 0.12 oz Korres Volcanic Minerals Voluminizing Mascara - 0.09 oz Lancome Définicils in Black - 0.16 oz Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes!™ in Rich Black It seems to me that if you like one of these and know that you would use a full size of it, it might be a chance to try some other popular items and get things at a good value. But if you want a less expensive way to try out more high end, less well known items, this isn't the set for you. It's different from the ones that I've seen before that seem to have a range and something I haven't heard of as much. Since I have a number of samples around from sets, gifts with purchase and a previous mascara set, I doubt I will go for this. Now, if they made a WATERPROOF version of this I'd have it in my basket and ordered so quickly you wouldn't see it flying by. I know at least 3 of these five have waterproof versions, but you never know how things really wear until you try them. I went through returning two other mascaras before going back to Lights, Camera, Splashes again. For the summer I would love to be able to try out a waterproof set (and frankly if I liked them enough, they would last me through the year).
Does anyone own the UD Mariposa Palette? Like it, love it, or leave it? It seems to have some fun colors in it and I love that it is on sale right now. (swatched image is from jessbeez blogspot) I already own UD Ammo Palette. Do you think these are two palettes are too similar? (swatch image is from theblackpearl blog)
I've ALWAYS been a shimmer girl. But as I get older I'm turning more towards mattes, the problem is, I do not have a good palette at all for them. I've heard stuff about the UD Basics, but the mattes that come in the Naked 1 palette look a little..I don't know, orange-ish? Or atleast on my fair skin they do. Here are two matte looks I LOVE, any suggestions on what palettes can help me create them?
I was recommended UrbanDecay's 24/7 eyeliner for the best smudgeproof liner. After wearing it for about an hour, I look like I've got a black eye because it smudges and leaves lines on my eyelids. Other people say that it is the best, but I seem to be having no luck. Suggestions/Comments?
Which do you feel is better? Which looks better in pictures? I want a flawless but still very real, not made-up (effortless, if you will) kind of thing going on in my pictures. Or do they serve different purposes? (Yes I am clueless about makeup... hahaha)
Great news for all you people who are fed up with under eye concealer creasing! Many of you may already know this tip, but I did not, so I will share. Use Smashbox primer AFTER applying corrector and/or concealer to "set" it. Surprisingly it doesn't smudge or ruin the concealer. Just use a very small amount and gently tap into the under eye area and let dry. I finish off with powder. Please let me know if it works for you : )
