So before I started filling in my brows, I did all the research I could about colors and products and such. I have black hair, and I read online that it is not wise to purchase a product that is purely black as it can look very dramatic and fake. I recently purchased Sephora's Retractable Brown Pencil in Midnight Brown and filled in my brows, and it looked obvious that it was drawn on! Just FYI, I go a little bit out of my natural brow shape and extend the tail a bit longer to get that arched look. Should I exchange the pencil with a true black eyebrow pencil? Help!
OK, I've seriously tried EVERYTHING to make these liners work. I've tried pulling while twisting, pushing while twisting, jiggling it a little, plain ol' twisting, etc. to get more of the liner to swirl out from the stick. BUT IT JUST WON'T DO IT. I've taken it into the store, and when the nice Sephora lady couldn't get it to work, she gave me a new one. Well, that one wouldn't work either. So I took that one back. It didn't work either. In total, I have exchanged this thing 4 times. None of them have worked. It's really disappointing because I love the liner--great texture, awesome smudge-y-ness--but it WON'T WORK. I've kinda given up, so now it's just sitting somewhere in my blackhole of a make-up box. Has anyone else had this problem, or am I just extremely unlucky? Could this please be fixed??
Good Morning BT! I'm thinking of getting either the Nars Dual Intensity Palette or the Narsissist Eyeshadow Palette during Chic Week. I have the entire UD Naked collection of shadows and the past 2 years of the Tarte holiday shadow palettes that came in the gift combo set around the holidays. I've never tried Nars shadows, so does anyone have any suggestions?Thanks!
Hey ladies! I have very discolored as well as oily eyelids, and I am in need of an eyeshadow primer that both neutralizes the area and prevents the creasing caused by the oil! I currently use either my Mac soft ochre paint pot or my pro longwear concealer to mask the discoloration, but my eyeshadow still creases usually, even though the products are supposed to be crease-proof. I also have started setting the primer with translucent powder recently, but it still creases. I've heard amazing things about the Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base for oily eyelids, but the only thing is that it is a clear formula. If any of you have tried this primer, can it be used on top of concealer on the eyelids? If you guys also have oily and discolored lids, recommendations would be much appreciated! Thanks! Paola
My eyes are hazel, and I usually just go with a black liner underneath and black mascara (both from the Sephora Collection). I was thinking about switching it up. Would brown mascara and eyeliner look good with my eyes? Or is there a better color to bring them out?
I got recommended Benefit's They're Real, and I loved the way it made my lashes look but it is soooooo hard to remove at night. What's something that will still give me that nice full lash look but will come off quite easy with my cleanser?
I'm 16-almost-17 and finally getting into makeup. I feel like eyeshadow is what I'm going to struggle with most, partly because holy heck what do I do and also because I'm so pale. I'm super pale and freckled, red hair, blue eyes. I have no idea what would look good on me, and what colors I should start learning to use. I like neutrals, but want to be able to try something more adventurous every once in a while too. Suggestions? Not just for colors but also styles and cream vs. powder, if you could, would be greatly appreciated!
Does anyone know of a peachy off-white eye pencil? Or any other good eye brightener for Asians? I haven't had any good experiences finding a pencil that is long lasting or has a color that goes well with my skin tone.
Not sure who can help me with this. I already have Naked 1 and 3 eye palettes as well as a palette from De Balm. I want to add another palette to add on to what I have to help spice things up a bit, but not with too bold too crazy rainbow colours. I seem to have lots of nudes. I have my eye on the Chocolate Bar Palette, but they seem to have similar colours to the Naked ones. Any suggestions? I am thinking the maybe up to $60-65 range.
I always have a hard time finding the right summer shades for a pretty, sunkissed look that blends well with my dark hair/eye and light skin combo. I have a reddish under-tone to my skin and I do eventually get a summer tan, but for the beginning of summer I need a little help creating a summer look and I don't want to buy a palette I end up hating. Suggestions anyone? Thanks!
I have seen so many tutorials on this palette. Just wondering on if this palette smells like chocolate too just like the first palette? I don't own either of these palettes, but I am wondering if ever purchased, could one actually stand the scent? lol It is a little pricey I believe for either palettes...but I can tell many have gone insane over it. How do people like this palette? Can you tolerate the scent? Is it better then the first palette?
I'm having kind of a weird problem; once it's on, my eyeliner stays put. I used to use pencils and gels but have recently switched to Kat Von D's Tattoo Liner. Loving this liner and finding that liquid works better for hugging the lashline and that it entails way less tugging. BUT, it has a tendency to bleed during application . Before it even sets, it bleeds into tiny wrinkles in my upper lids. I don't even have many upper lid wrinkles, but this formula finds them and settles into them ASAP. Has anyone else experienced this and found a way around it? FYI, I do use eye primer (Too Faced's Shadow Insurance, which I've found to work better for me and look more natural on me than any of the others.), so it's not just a matter of needing to use primer. Thanks!
I currently use a great eye makeup remover but won't be buying it anymore as I am spending my money on cruelty free brands so I'm looking for a different product. Any thoughts? I'm looking at this one in particular. http://www.sephora.com/gentle-oil-free-eye-makeup- remover-P301779?skuId=1388859 Thanks!
I recently dyed my hair to a dark brown colour from a previous black. Problem is my eyebrows remain to be the thick but tamed Cara Delevigne-like black naturally. I personally don't take such a huge leap to wax them to extreme thin eyebrows to manipulate my brows. How do i get them to be the ideal two shades lighter colour, of my dark brown hair without bulking my eyebrows any further to just changing the colour? (no bleach products)
I'm preparing my shopping list for VIB I always go back to this - I have Lorac Pro and Naked 3 so I have a lot of neutrals - is chocolate bar worth getting if I have the lorac? I was debating between that or the Innerstellar (just worried it's too cool, I cannot do silvers) Opinions please? thanks very much
I'm curious to know, which do you gravitate more towards, warm or cool toned eyeshadows? Also, what is your skin tone/undertones? I'm kind of in the middle, I love the cool tones in the Naked 2, but most of my other eyeshadows are warms!
There are serums and mascara primers that nourish your lashes and helps them grow. There are eye makeup removers for gentle/sensitive eyes and extra strength for stay-put eye makeup. They come in liquids, gels, foam, oil, balm or wipes Is there such a product that actually helps lashes grow and removes waterproof mascara at the end of the day? I’m intrigued by one in particular by Kate Somerville. Have you tried this one or any other one? What is your experience with such product? I need to repurchase an eye makeup remover soon and need suggestions to try a new one please.
Does anyone have both of these? Can you comment on differences or similarities between them? I don't have either one but am thinking about getting one...or both. I have two other Chanel eyeshadow quads and love them-I have Poesie (fall limited release) and the Reve D'Orient holiday quad. I'm looking for a neutral, not overly shimmery (I'm in my 40's and light medium skin) that would work for everyday as well as evening. I thought about getting TF Golden Mink but that one is more glitter/sparkly than I want. Thanks in advance for anyone's input
Hey ladies, I'm headed to Sephora tomorrow and I'm in need of advice on mascara. I have fairly long lashes that will curl when using an eyelash curler, but the second that I apply mascara to my lashes they droop down and sick out straight. I've resorted to wearing waterproof mascara daily, which is terrible for my lashes and sometimes very difficult to remove. Does anyone know of a mascara that is lightweight enough to keep my lashes curled but also volumizes and lengthens?
Hi ladies! So I've recently been really into Colour Pop but I find their packaging so cumbersome. It is possible to depot them from the white packaging but it's not recommended because of they could dry out so I was wondering if anyone has depotted their Colour Pops, for how long have they been depotted, and if you've noticed a change in their texture. I find the packaging so annoying that I think even if they do dry out a bit, I'd be willing to put up with it. I just don't want them to dry out completely. I have a very tiny apartment so space is very tight. Thanks for any help!
I'm vietnamese with black hair, brown eyes and a medium skin tone. I'm just starting to get into make up and want to know, what is the best eye shadow palette you would recommend? Would you choose the naked 1 or naked 2 palette (I don't really like the pink tones of naked 3) instead of some other palette? What else would you recommend for a beginner like me?
So im on a hunt for more brushes! dont need more but yeah... might be time to get rid of some i have Qou, Danielle, one or 2 very old smashbox ones(but their amazing) and ELF ones What are your suggestions and recommendations
