Hi! So I finally purchased a modern renaissance palette after seeing the 4.8 star reviews and the very pretty swatches! However..... I can't seem to get a nice look on me without looking like I bruised my eye! I usually use either the UD naked 3 palette or TooFaced Peach Palette.. I've also tried youtubing for looks but none of them see workable. If you have any tips on what colors to put wherever on the eye, please let me know! I don't want to have to return the palette! The colors are soooo pretty! Preferably I'd like less intense looks, more of a subtle look (I have fair color skin, dark brown eyes, asian so no crease but big eyes, ) Thanks!
Does anyone remember this palette? It is my favorite palette of all time and has been my white whale (Moby D!ck) since it was discontinued (darn LE)! This palette was perfection, but 3 shadows stole my heart, namely hammock (coffee brown that blends like a dream), bikini (duo chrome peachy tan is the best way I can describe it but doesn't do it justice and my absolute favorite shade in this palette) and sun deck (a light tan). This palette was an impulse purchase in 2013 and since it is no longer available I ration my usage of it. I have hoped Tarte would release these colors again under a different name in another palette but haven't found that to be the case. Can anyone suggest dupes of these shadows (especially hammock and bikini) by any brand in singles or a palette?
I have the Kevyn Aucoin Contour Book Volume II (shortening the product name) and love soft the shimmer shadows look are on the eyes. Does anyone know of any other formulas that are like it? I just love this type of shimmer for daytime; it feels really sophisticated for the office.
I have very short eyelashes that even with mascara don't seem to look any better. False eyelashes bug my eyelashes towards the inner parts. I am considering an eyelash growth serum. I have a friend who uses the Rodan+Fields Lash boost but am hesitant against those types of companies. Espcially when they make you pay a starter fee to buy their products at a discount. Anyone have any luck with the RevitaLash Advanced or the Rodan+Fields? Or even something else? I don't want to have to take pills though. Thanks!
The first few times I used this eyeliner (with and without primer, with and without shadow) it went on perfectly. One swipe, full coverage and no transferring to my lid. After about 5 days it started transferring to my lids after 20 minutes of being on. In the past 2 days, even after storing tip down and shaking, it's going on lightly so i've had to put on more than one coat. The transferring was even worse! I'm not sweating - just driving to work. Is this usual or does it sound defective? Thank you for your thoughts!
Hi BT Ladies, I just tried the Loreal Voluminous Butterfly mascara this morning, and did my right eye first. To my delight it gave me super long, separated lashes with amazing curl. I was beyond ecstatic. My go-to mascara was MUFE Smoky Extravagant, but this worked even better than MUFE, and is a lot cheaper...so I was sooo happy... Then I did my left eye. I have no idea what happened? The left eye lashes turned out extremely wimpy, short, and clumpy, with no curl, and was just overall a horrible mess. It looked like my left and right eyelashes belonged on two different people. They just did not match what-so-ever. I've had this happen with other mascaras, where my left eyelashes turn out not as nice as the right, but never such an extreme difference as today with the Loreal Butterfly mascara. So a few questions for you lovely ladies: 1. Have you had experiences where you lashes were uneven either with or without mascara? (in terms of length, volume, curl, etc). 2. What mascaras tend to give more uneven results / what was the shape of the brush? (I find that the uneven lashes issue happens the most with asymmetrical brushes) 3. What do you think is the cause of this? 4. Any tips or tricks on how to make your lashes look even on both sides? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! (FYI, I'm right handed. Also, when I do my left eyelashes, I still use my right hand, but twist my wrist the other way, so that the tip of the mascara wand is facing towards the inner corner of my left eye).
I've been considering purchasing a high end eyeshadow palette. I have narrowed it down by process of YouTube videos and what color schemes look most appealing to me. Between the Tartlette In Bloom palette and the ABH Modern Renaissance palette, which should I pick and why?
Going to Hawaii in May and wanting a easy travel eyeshadow palette that can take me from day to night. I have the Too Faced Matte eyeshadow palette and hate it, as the colors tend to not blend well and get muddy very quickly. I am looking at: NARSissist Loaded Eyeshadow palette Tartelette Tease Tartelette in Bloom Tartelette Pro Amazonian Clay Bare Minerals Bare Neutrals Any opinions on these? Thanks in advance!
I haven't been active in a looooong time. Now that my kid is almost 5, I'm starting to have time for me and looking for some advice on liners. Ready to play around with winged liners, etc and am looking for excellent pigmentation and waterproof. What's your favorite????
Hi all! I'm not all too sure if there's even such a thing as gothic makeup (as far as the look goes), but thought I'd ask if anyone has any tips for eyeshadow/blush application and any brands geared towards that aesthetic. I'd love if you guys could share any youtubers, instagrammers, or even pics of yourselves for inspiration!!!
Hello everyone I need help finding the perfect Eyeshadow Palette for my older sister who is finally getting into makeup (yay). She's in her early 30s, medium complexion, brown hair/eyes, and loves shimmer/glitter <3 Any help will be gladly appreciated she has Naked 2. TIA
Okay I need help. I'm looking for a nice lightweight concealer that's sheer to medium coverage that I can use in the summer. Y'know, pop on and walk out the door. My under eye area is normal skin texture. Please help!
I am seeking a subtle eyeshadow for daily wear. I've been wearing a pale blue shade that looks good but my GF said it feels kinda off for daytime and I agree. I wear powder foundation, blush, eyeshadow, mascara, and lipstick daily. (P.S. I'm a guy.) Your suggestions for something that'll look natural and cute will be very much appreciated!
So, I've never used this before but I was wondering if anyone can relate or has advice! Since the dawn of time (me experimenting with make up at age 11) I have struggled with finding an eyeliner or mascara that is long lasting. My eyes are watery I guess and spend most of my day wiping of make up from underneath my eyes. I've tried primers, pencil liners, liquid liners, gel liners, felt-tip pen liners. Water proof mascara, high end mascara, regular mascara. I have yet to find a product that stays on my eyes. Today I ordered the stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner, Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara and an Urban Decay Primer potion. I'm hoping these products will work well! Does anyone have any staple products they use that are long lasting?
Hi everyone. I would like to know if there are any solutions to get rid of hyper pigmentation around the eyes. I have had this since I was a child and I am the only one in my family that has this. Any ideas on how to lighten this. Concealer doesn't work for me since it creases under my eyes even with primer and I am looking at a long term solution rather than a quick fix.
Also if you can could you tell me what my eye shape is? I am not sure if it is a prominent eye shape.
I would also like to reduce the size of it with makeup. Any tips?
I have tried SO many mascaras, and it seems like, no matter what I use, two to three times a day, I have to wipe it from underneath my eyes. I've been told not to use waterproof, because it is formulated to be broken down by oil (as opposed to water), but I have the same problem with washable mascaras. I've also tried eye shadow primers and using translucent powder under my eyes... What mascara (that is preferably less than $30, because ouch) will give me the volume that I want (which is a lot) without the raccoon eyes?
