Hi BT! I've been hijacking threads lately with my various color challenges. It's time for it's own place! The rules: Each week (Sunday- Saturday), there will be a new color to incorporate into your makeup looks. It can be one item of that color or a whole face. Try to incorporate it 4-5 times during the week, and post your pic, or discuss your colors here with everyone! If you can only do a day or two, that's fine too! This should be fun! For folks on a No Buy, it's a great way to shop your collection. I hope you'll join me! Week 2: July 26- August 1: ORANGE!
Hey Beauties- We have ALOT of threads around here for Tom Ford products. I figured I'd start one thread where we can update each other on items as they come out or we see them available. For all my UK'ers, or people willing to pay for shipping from the UK, Harrods has Softcore and Nude Dip from the Fall collection available right now. Happy Shopping!
I already have the Filmstar bronze & glow palette but looking into some of her other products. Does anyone have any experiences they would like to share esp with her Light Wonder Foundation, her blush and the Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder? I'm interested in getting these three things but still on the fence about taking the plunge! Please let me know, many BTers opinions have helped me out on products before Thanks in advance!
I've seen things where people say they don't wear makeup to impress guys when guys can't tell the difference between black and navy, or Half Baked from Chopper in the Naked line. Things like that. I remember somewhere in the threads someone posted one with two lipsticks, I thought it was the funniest thing. So as a fun little game, fill in the blanks " You think I wear makeup to impress a guy who can't tell the difference between______and_____?"
Hi, So, I'm a Genderqueer person. For those who don't know, it means that I don't identify with the regular gender binary (Male and Female), but instead identify as somewhere in between. I heard that this forum was a good place for beauty advice and wasn't too judgemental, so I thought this might be a good place for me to ask some of my questions. I was assigned male at birth (AMAB), and I'm looking for makeup that will help give my face a more androgynous look. I find this particularly difficult for myself, because I keep growing facial hair and my eyebrows are incredibly bushy (I have dark facial and brow hair, btw). I know the simple solution is to shave and get my brows waxed/plucked/threaded, but even though I do shave every single morning, I still have a lot of shadow left behind (Especially on my upper lip). What foundation, and also proper makeup regimen, would be right to help de-masculinize my face, and what proper tools will I need for it? If anyone can give me even a few pointers, I would really appreciate it. Some extra facts about me: -I have a round face. Would this need any altering? -My skin tone is very white with little tan. How can I figure out what shade would be best? -Overall, I have very sensitive skin that's also acne prone. How can I find a good makeup that won't cause at least too many breakouts? Are there any specific brands that are considered to be more safe than others? Thank you in advance for any answers. -I hope this is still a safe space-
I found this disappointing honestly. I'm super pale and was really excited for it. It's expensive and the color only lasts maybe 3 days with moisturization and minimal shaving. Guide color is perfect but once it's washed off it's too light imo. Anyone else feel the same?
My skin gives me so much trouble!! I have very oily acne prone skin. I am pretty new to the whole makeup game so it is difficult for me to find my correct shade. Sometimes the foundations I pick make me look like I have a fake spray on tan, others make me look super pink or pale. If I go into Sephora stores can they help me pick my right shade? and does it cost if they do help me? I try going for the matte finish because my skin is so oily, however I love the dewy look but it just makes my skin look wet and runny. I need some serious help!
Ok, so I have horrible skin, I randomly break out, I have combination skin. Sometimes I am really oily, other times I am really dry, most times I am both. I have scars from past acne on my face. I need a makeup and primer and concealer or whatever works to cover all of it. I feel like I have literally tried every single kind of foundation and concealer and primer but some only work for a while then just stop. Does anyone have any recommendations on a primer that will help keep me matte, a concealer that isn't too thick that will cover scars and blemishes and a foundation that will cover the rest. I need complete full coverage. thank you
I was wondering if Opal could work on fair skin (I have slight yellow undertone). I would most likely will be mixing it with moonstone though, but curious if it could work alone as well? I bought Champagne Pop, but I'm on the fence about it. It's not too dark at all, but it just kind of sits on top of my skin, if that makes sense. It doesn't really "melt" into the skin. It's obvious I put some shimmer on my skin. Any feedback would be wonderful!
I have a few concerns here, that I need a lot of help with. 1. I have combo skin with a really oily chin, but cheeks/forehead are normal/dry. I have noticed that I have a slight dry patch on the apple of my cheek and NOTHING will help it. I was using an acne wash, so I stopped that, I tried gel moisturizers, Dove bar soap (instead of a true face wash), intense moisturizers, and nothings working. It looks okay when I first put makeup on, aside from it looking a little pink, but once my makeup settles, it looks cakey and flakey and ughhh. Help!!! 2. My foundation has seem to started to melt off my face in the last few months, leaving me with blotchy, nasty, gooey makeup residue. I currently use Sephora's 10 hour foundation and Nars Foundation (the liquid) and even still, my makeup lasts maybe 2/3 hours tops? What's everyones secret to having a flawless face without it looking goopy and actually staying put all day? I feel like I'm just wasting makeup because I'm ALWAYS re-applying often. I've tried setting sprays and setting powders and the whole 9 yards. This also causes my bronzer/contour to get patchy and look really weird. Please help.
So, I was using the Sephora CC Cream in Light(Y) for several years now. I went to reorder but it was discontinued! So now I need to find a new daily moisturizer, and I was looking at the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer line because I remember sampling one and enjoying the texture. The only issue is, I don't have a Sephora near me, and I have no idea what color I'd be. Does anyone have any idea of what tinted moisturizer shade could be similar to the old shade Light? I think it's between Nude and Sand, but I'm just not sure. Any and all help is appreciated. Thank you!
I watched the msn video about the technique referred to as "baking" my make-up. Am I correct to assume that I should only use moisturizer, concealers, wet sponges, and translucent powder (without foundation) to achieve this look? Thanks for your help! I have attached pictures from the online video. Best regards, Miss Freddie
I'm going on vacation to Florida soon and im wanting to get some new make up before I leave and was wondering if I should get the same shade I am now or a shade darker? How would I go about doing this especially when I'm going to be tanning when i'm at the beach?
You have the Mac highlighter pens in Radiant Rose(which is pinkish i guess) and Light Boost which is yellow. So yellow toned highlighters are more for darker skin complextions and not for fair skin. But why not a nude skin toned highlighter? What is the point With the yellow color?
I want to purchase Laura Mercier mineral makeup powder but they do not carry it at my local Sephora so I must order it online. I cannot decide which color would but right. for me. Sometimes I am an Ivory and sometimes I am a Light in makeup. Please help. I am cool undertones. Thank you for your help.
Hello! I am currently visiting Vancouver for two weeks and I want to shop for makeup while I'm here. I have no clue to where to start, or what to try, so I decided to ask the BT community. I just want some ideas for brands to look for, your must try products, and your favorites products. Only Canadian brands or exclusives please, I'm from the U.S. so I only want products I can't easily purchase there. It can be drugstore or high end. Thank you!!!
Hello. I noticed there is a new makeup store in my mall. Its a Kiko Cosmetics. I have never heard of the brand... anyone know anything about them? Anything wonderful there that I should check out? Thank you
We all have those products that everyone on youtube RAVES about. Then you get your hands on it and that product is not living up to its hype--in other words, its meh, horrible, okay, just "good", not worth it etc. As beauty lovers we spend lots and lots of money and it would be great if we could share some of our misses so we can stray from the bad! As well, please share your hits so we can finally see what's worth the money we spend! Misses: Givenchy- Phenomen'Eyes Mascara: I just don't know what this does for my lashes. The wand is simply dangerous and you can poke yourself in the eye with it. It's also fairly wet and will not hold my curl. Just NO. I can find something better at the drugstore for under $10 than waste my money on this. Benefit- They're Real! Push-Up Liner: Okay, I love the design of it and how quick it takes me to do my liner with this. However, I would never buy it, only get samples of it. I feel that it is very drying and once it dries, my eyes feel very weird and dry. It sorta makes your eye area almost a crunchy feeling. It dries fairly quickly and you are unable to make even lines without messing it up. Make up for ever- Aqua Eyes: I mean, I like it, but it's not worth my money. I tried to use this to tight-line and the next thing you know, it came off. I had to instead use another eyeliner. It is also very stiff and not very creamy in my opinion, it just takes a lot of effort to use this pencil eyeliner for an every winged eyeliner look. In Between: Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palette (Exposure): Okay, I admit, I LOVE this palette. BUT, I don't think it's worth the $58. I can find these colors in other palettes. They may not be the exact colors, but very much almost the same. Plus, it has a lot of fall out but you can easily fix this by using the tips in the video they provide. However, this palette is so pigmented and travel-sized, I just don't know. I'm torn between if it's a hit or miss.
Hello, any one knows if the NARS new cheek palette will be sold at Sephora? When? I'm dying to have it and I want to place an order here but should I wait for it? or buy it at Nordstrom? Please if you know about it tell me
Hey everyone. So I wear Make Up Forever's HD Foundation in the color 110. I feel I am a little to dark for this color so I mix it in with my Mac Pro Longwear NC 20. I need advice for getting a foundation color in Tarte as well as Cover FX.
I'm currently using the MUFE Translucent HD Loose Setting Powder and it's just not cutting it. I find myself getting oily throughout the day, and if I use enough to really set my face hard-core, I find myself having to deal with white face flashback in photographs because I use so much product. I need a (preferably translucent because I find it really difficult to find powders in my skin tone - paler than NW10 for reference) setting powder than will prevent me from getting oily during the day. My skin produces a lot of oil, but I also have dry patches so I'd like it to not accentuate those either but still keep me shine free. I know that's a lot to ask of a powder, but I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations. It can be loose or pressed, and I don't have a budget. Thanks in advance!
Hello Ladies! I need help finding a good mascara! I have used so many (Covergirl, Lorel, Sephora, Elf) and have been using the Marc Jacobs 40 For a while now which I really really like. However, It always gets clumpy and never seems to last very long on my lashes and always makes a mess on my lower lashes having them stick together. My top lashes are very short and dark, however, my lower lashes are very blonde that you cant even tell I have any without mascara on! I have the younque lashes that work wonders but I can't wear them on my lower lashes because of my contacts....Help! Also, how long should you use a tube before throwing it away? No one has ever really given me a specific time...I usually throw it out when it starts to dry out or get so clumpy I can't stand it.
Hello everyone! I need help finding a lipstick that won't turn white in the corners of my lips after half an hour of talking. I have to talk a lot at work, and I always notice those treacherous and embarrassing white streaks on my lips whenever I have a lipstick on. I have tried tons of them - drugstore, high-end, matte, glossy - same result. The only one that was alright is MAC lipglass - but it's a lip gloss. Do you know a lipstick that doesn't turn into a mess?
I've just recently found out this brand was a thing, and I am really interested in them. But, while I am a sucker for witchy themed makeup (shocking right?) this brand is pretty steeply priced, so I'm afraid of shelling out for something that might end up being a dust catcher. I didn't find many of the reviews for them, though I tend to not really like reviews unless I'm at least passingly familiar with the reviewer anyway. I signed up for their newsletter and they sent me a nice coupon ($10 off $50+ if memory serves) so I will probably end up going for it but I would love to hear what BT has to say about them! (They sure know how to grab attention though don't they?)
Not sure if this has been posted yet or not, but just stumbled on it. I thought they weren't suppose to be up until Aug. 8?! http://www.sephora.com/matte-revolution-lipstick-P 398366?keyword=Urban%20Decay%20Matte%20Revolution% ...
I'm not big on the whole contouring thing but am looking for a pink-toned powder I can use to set under eye concealer and the areas that I highlight. I don't want to pay $40+ for a palette that I'll only use half of. Any recommendations??? Thanks in advance beauties!
