What type of mascara wand would I need in order to get a similar affect as the eyelashes at the following link #6 without using false lashes? Could you also give me some mascara examples? http://www.stylecraze.com/articles/tips-and-tricks -to-make-small-eyes-appear-bigger/
Has anyone purchased or tried any of the Ciate Skinny Shadow Sticks? I was really surprised to see a Ciate section in the Powell Street store since it reopened. I went looking for their blush but noticed these as well. They have a spongy tip that seems like it could apply almost like a spongy version of a Sharpie. The shade range reminded me of the GA Eye Tints. If you like products like the LM Caviar Sticks, these might be interesting to you. I might have bought one but it seemed like out of the 10 or so shades, about 6 of them had wandered off.
Hello! So last week, I was wandering around Sephora and came across the Marc Jacobs eye sticks. When I inquired about them and their blendability - I was led over to the Armani Eye Tints instead. I ended up swatching several of these in store, and took 4 shades home with me to play with: Jade, Shadow, Flannel, and Rose Ashes. I was surprised when I didn't find much on the boards about these past when they were initially launched - and was just wondering if anyone had any experiences or favorite looks with these? So far, I really like Rose Ashes by itself and layered over Shadow. Same with Flannel. I haven't been brave enough to wear Jade out yet, alone or layered over Shadow (though I have tried the later and it has a nice effect for sure). I'm definitely curious about the darker colors but always have such a hard time pulling them off!
Hello everyone! <3 Okay, so just a few days ago I came up with this amazing gorgeous eye-shadow look. Unfortunately I do not have a picture of it to demonstrate what I mean by it being gorgeous.. But, I will explain everything I did and used and maybe you'll get a small picture of what it looks like.. (Or maybe you'll even try it on your own!) :-) 1) Prime your eyelids using an eye shadow primer. ( I used Urban Decay's) 2) You will need a matte black eye shadow; and using a small, fluffy, eye shadow brush, put this all over the eyelid, avoiding a lot in the crease. So, that looks good, right? Well, we're not finished yet- and let me tell you- a transformation is coming! ;-D 3) Use a light blue shimmer eye shadow, (I wouldn't recommend using glitter eye shadow for this- it might turn out really messy) I used Clinique's eye shadow duo in Wave after Wave and put this all over the matte black eye shadow, turning it into an awesome looking color! With the products I use, it almost looks like little pieces of gems on my eyes- its beautiful! And of course if you're a liner girl, wing on some eye liner(I skip this part as I do not have eye liner, sadly) and put on some of your favorite mascara and you're set to go. ;-) Oh wait! Don't forget the lipstick! ;-) ~Hope you guys enjoyed this little so called "tutorial" and hope it works out good for anyone that tries this look. :-)
Hello, I like to go for a natural look for my eyes, but keep running out of just two shades in my Naked Basics Palette. Any suggestions for what I can use to duplicate the "w.o.s." and "naked 2" shades in that palette? -Thanks!
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
Hello Lovelies, Recently I am obsessed with cream eyeshadow stick. I am enjoying the Laura Mercier ones. Is there any dupe for Mac Paint Pot in Tailor Grey in shadow stick format? Please let me know. Thanks!
So I've noticed when I bother to properly conceal my under-eye bags that the skin right at the root of my lower lashes looks pink and slightly irritated. It's definitely not a reaction, they're always like that, it's just more obvious without the purple below. I've tried using a dude eyeliner on my waterline and it helps a little but I don't know how to get at the skin right at the root of my lashes without it getting all over the lashes. Any advice for how to cover this up?
Hello everyone I am really hoping that the BT community will be able to help me find a dupe for NYX Flamingo. I love the shade, but unfortunately it is quite powdery (borderline chalky) which makes it hard to use. I am looking for a dupe, preferably in a form of a single eyeshadow and not a palette. Here are some swatches: I would describe it as a light pinky-mauve with a golden (almost) duochrome. It looks more golden when applied over an eyeshadow base (top picture, right-most swatch), otherwise it's pretty sheer. I've seen people comparing it to MAC Rose pigment, but Flamingo is nowhere near that pink (and I'd rather not bother with pigments tbh). Do you have any other suggestions that I should check out? Drugstore or high end, anything is fair game
I have very thin hair, so naturally I have thinner eyebrows. I heard Anastasia has some great brow shadow products. Any other product recommendations? Also, any difference between the brow wiz and brow pencil from Anastasia?
I want to try this but not sure what color since there are so many. I am pretty pale since i have to avoid the sun with olive tones so I don't want it to be too light or too dark, usually i use light/medium
I want to create a MUFE 3-pan palette of matte shades that are in the taupe family. I want them to be grouped so that I have all the shades needed for lid/crease/highlight. I was thinking I want M620 Grey Brown as my darkest shade. What should my other two be? I was looking at M536 Milk Tea, M548 Pink Grey, and M558 Dark Taupe, but I am not sure what works together. I will be swatching in store (presumably at the Rouge event in November, since it will be a trip for me to get to one with all the MUFE shadows) but I wanted to get some expert input here as well! EDIT: Now that I'm finding swatches online, I think Milk Tea is too warm. I want cool tones, obviously. This is why I need help!!! http://www.sephora.com/artist-shadow-P387670?skuId =1623412
I seem to have a roughly 1:3 record of being able to sharpen this eyeliner without breaking off the tip. I love the formula, and the way it wears, but can't seem to sharpen it regularly without breaking the soft tip. Any advice?
Hi! I normally use benefits "Erase Paste" in the shade fair, but I want to order NARS radiant creamy concealer, I don't really wear makeup so I don't know but would the first shade of the NARS "Chantilly" or the second shade "Vanilla" work better with me and be the one to most likely match my fair erase paste? Thanks in advance!
Hi, I just bought the absolutely gorgeous Palette Extravaganza / Extravagancia (to those across the pond) - and was wondering the best ways to wear this palette? I have deep set eyes, and dark colors can sometimes make it look like I have a black eye when wearing (even with under eye makeup - but maybe I'm doing it wrong). Of course - I'm especially with the darkest, plum glittery color. Any advice would be most appreciated!
