Need a new eyeshadow primer!
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

What mascara's are volumizing but easy to remove at night?
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?

To be honest I find any mascara a breeze to remove at night using Lancome's Bi-Facil; you might want to try it so you can continue using the Benefit mascara you love. see post
What are good eyeshadow colors/palettes for someone new to makeup?
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!

Want to add to my eyeshadow palette collection.
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'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!

Need tips for a Summer eyeshadow palette for my dark hair, light skin and hooded eyes!
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.

Eyebrow Colour!
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?

Eye makeup remover that nourishes lashes
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.

Liquid liner bleeding during application
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!

Hard to curl lashes, please help!
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?

Eye make up smudges on lower lids
Help! All my eye make up smudges on my lower lids. I've tried not using and using primer on my lids and lower lids. I've tried different drug store pencil, liquid, and gel liners like the Make Up Forever pencil, Stila waterproof liquid liner, Urban Decays 24/7 glide pencils, and EM cosmetics liquid liner.

Makeup for a Black Light Dance
Hello everyone! My school is having a black light dance for this year's spring homecoming. Please help recommend products that would look cool under the lights.

I have Urban Decay's Vice LTD (Roadstripe may glow I think?) Electric, Vice 3, Smoked, Nakeds 1, 2, 3, and Too Faced Chocolate Bar, although I am open to buying a palette as long as it isn't made just for black lights so I couldn't wear it again.

Depotting Colour Pop shadows
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!

UD Electric Palette – Curious about the ‘not safe for eyes’ warning
Hi! I have a quick question about Urban Decay’s Electric Palette.   I‘ve been eyeing this palette for a while – some of my fellow BTers have created such gorgeous looks with these colours, and the bright pink and purples really appeal to me. I’m hesitant though because of the ‘not safe for the immediate eye area’ warning for the red, pink and purple shades.   Has anyone who owns this palette experienced any issues with these particular shades? I’ve read online the colours can leave a faint stain on your eyelid the next day, which isn’t really too much of an issue for me. I wear pink shades most days, so I’m sure it won’t be noticeable under my usual ‘workday’ makeup. I’m more concerned about possible health concerns? I asked the SAs at my local Sephora, as well as the Beauty Boutique at Shoppers, and the replies were worrying vague…   If it is unsafe, can anyone recommend another really vibrant palette?   If it helps at all with recommendations, I have dark hair with pink highlights and very fair skin. Most days I wear Naked 3 or Guerlain’s Les Roses for work, but I want to play around with some bright, vibrant colours for an evening/party look. Any suggestions would be fantastic! <3
