I'm pretty rushed in the morning, so sometimes I don't clean my eyeliner or cream blush brush right afterward, and of course it dries and becomes hard and difficult to clean when I get home. So I'm looking to change this habit. What is the best and fastest way to spot clean your eyeliner brush or other brushes that come into contact with liquid/cream products? I'd like it to be thorough enough that I can use the brush for a few days before doing a deep cleaning, abut not super time consuming.
So I wanted to pick up a new palette but I don't know which one or ones to get. I have the Naked palettes, Smoked, and Vice by Urban Decay. But I'd like to branch out and try a different brand. I've only read reviews on these palettes and I do want to swatch them, but I don't want to be tempted by all 4. Is there any that are better than the others? Are they pigmented? Good variety? Or are they too closely related to my palettes? Any help is appreciated! http://www.sephora.com/monarch-eyeshadow-palette-P 385530?icid2=Kat_Von_D_WhatsNew_Carousel_P385530_l ... http://www.sephora.com/chrysalis-eyeshadow-palette -P385529?icid2=Kat_Von_D_WhatsNew_Carousel_P385529 ... http://www.sephora.com/the-chocolate-bar-eye-palet te-P384402?icid2=Too_Faced_Editors_Picks _P384402_link http://www.sephora.com/the-return-of-sexy-eye-shad ow-palette-P375171?skuId=1442201
My name is Bombshell and I continue to be an eyeshadow addict enthusiast !! However, five weeks ago I began a quest to actually start using my mountains and mountains of palettes and shadows. Along with some awesome ladies who have joined in I have committed to using the same palette 5 days in a row and posting the results at the end of five days. Those with single shadows are welcome to join in as well! If you are interested in the original rules & lists posted they can be found in off topic, (take the challenge: palette parade). the gist of it is make a list, plan to show all your shadows love for extended period of time (5days), if you hate it first day move on. I am also planning to add weeks of singles by brand (Stila week, UD week, Nars week). I think instead of posting and editing lists it would be easier to report what we plan to use at the beginning of the week and the report the results at the end. We meet here at the end of the week to discuss what we wore for the week, how it worked for us and most importantly to share pictures and advice! Anyone can join as we all started at different times and have different numbers of palettes, and will finish at different times. I am looking at 38 (?) more weeks if I don't buy one more palette! Xoxo I look forward to more fun parading with all you girls! Palette Parade Princesses: CalamityJane85, Nikki, LadyMeag, Beethousand, AmberAngeline, MaFan, nurseCupcake, Carolang, Jenblush, Malday, Sparlekai, GHKim, IttyxBittyxMe, Katie241, SirenPrincess, Manniface.
I entered a TooFaced contest on Twitter and actually won! It's a Better Than Sex mascara, nothing crazy but I am so excited to have won anything, and I've been eyeing this mascara. Do you enter giveaways or have ever won something exciting? The picture I used that "won" is my profile picture, me holding Glamour to Go II
I have been using Clinique's Brush on Cream Liner and I love it, it is so easy to use, but sometimes it can be hit or miss on the staying power. What do you guys recommend for one that is long wearing and easy to use?
I mentioned the other day in the palette parade thread that it would be cool if someone started a thread with a picture of a cool eye look and we all tried our hands at it. So CalamityJane (the bully) told me to start it. My immediate thought was "But I wanted someone else to do it!!" Then I decided I was being a whiny little b*tch and should get to it. So without further ado, here's the first Eyeshadow Inspiration! I had been wanting to try a green/bronze eye look for awhile and thought this one looked fun. Here is my not-very-good attempt at it: As always, lighting was a bit of an issue (why won't my blush ever show up?!?), but even though the colors aren't captured perfectly you can still kind of see them. Anyone else want to try? Feel free to substitute colors and change it up (maybe using whatever your palette-of-the-week is?). I love seeing what people here come up with!
So I recently purchased Urban Decays Electric palette. The colors are so gorgeous and oh so pigmented! I've been playing a lot with it and end up looking pretty comical at times with some of the rainbow looks I've come up with. I can't seem to accept wearing less than four shades at a time! Lol! Has anyone got any pictures of multiple color looks that aren't too over the top? Or do I have to accept using two or three shades?
i ventured out of my cave today and was bombarded by a plethora of raccoon eyes. what on earth are these ladies thinking? seriously, when i see you, this is all i can think of: what are some of your biggest fashion and makeup nonos? anything that makes you want to claw your own eyeballs from your face?
New HSN customers can get the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette w/ a full-sized Shadow Insurance Primer for $29 with coupon code 20NEWSPRING (and free shipping!). Just bought mine (although I really only wanted the palette)...it might be worth it to have a friend sign up and order it on your behalf since it's a smokin' deal. That's almost 30% off. (Shout out to the Nouveau Cheap blog for posting this!)
So I recently had my makeup done and the make up artist ranted and raved about how the mascara she was using was a tubing mascara that wraps around my lashes and I could just pull them off with my fingers. How can I tell if a particular mascara fits into this category?? I wouldn't mind having one as an option in my make up case. I still think it flakes so as a staple I would still prefer my waterproof but, on occasion, I could see it being an option. Is it a trial and error thing?? Most labels don't provide that description. Thanks!
I bought this about a month ago and finally used it. Yep, it's lovely! Of course, smelling like chocolates doesn't hurt. But the colors are very pigmented. You can go from neutral to really dramatic with this palette. A keeper! http://www.sephora.com/the-chocolate-bar-eye-palet te-P384402?skuId=1578012
Enable me? Disable me? Pros : As previously stated, gorgeous Laura Mercier has yet to disappoint me Cons : $44 for a quad is kind of a lot. Not Guerlain A Lot, but still. I'm not so sure about baked eyehadows. I haven't worked with them much a all. http://www.sephora.com/baked-eye-colour-quad-P3857 65?skuId=1598689
I just ordered this from Ulta. I haven't seen any reviews on it although Musings of a Muse had it on her site, but it was just so cute and I love cream shadows. I've always been pleased with Cargo products, and I was in the mood to buy a new palette but none of the powder palettes were doing it for me, so this was perfect! I'll let you know how I like it!
This mascara seems to get overlooked, so I wanted to give it a shout out. I am not a fan of curling my lashes at all. and this mascara does it for me. A cast mate told me she used it, and it curled her lashes. And of course I was skeptical. I tried it, and it yes it does! I don't use an eyelash curler anymore. And my lashes look thick and long. Now I've been a Benefit's Yes They're Real girl for a while, but this beats it.
I've been eying this palette for a few weeks now, but haven't heard anything about it. It has all of the Summer shades I'm looking for, but I don't have any experience with Lorac shadows. Please, oh please, let me know what you think so I can get it shipped! Note: I think the palette is an Ulta exclusive.
So I have this liquid eyeliner pen by L'oreal which I like because it gives me a wet jet black look and it goes on smoothly. However it always gets in my crease even though I use a paint pot ( primer) beforehand. Any ideas on how to fix that? Also any recommendations on how to fix your eyeliner when you already have put on your primer and shadow? I have a habit of making one eye too thick and end up having to make them both thick then
I used to use Anastasia Beverly Hills Cooling Eye Brightener, which I LOVED, but it's harder to find now and Sephora doesn't carry it anymore. I then switched to Smashbox Photo Op Under Eye Brightener which does it's job, but doesn't knock me out of the ballpark and I love trying new things - so I want to know what you ladies use as an under eye highlight! Dark circles aren't a real concern for me, I just like highlighting that under eye area, because it really brightens up my face. (: Any under-eye highlight suggestions? (:
