Hey everyone!! Makeup newbie here I just recently purchased the e.l.f. illuminating palette, and I am wondering if anyone has tips on how to use it! (i.e, which shade goes where)... I see that face shape can affect how to contour, so I have an oval face if that helps you all
So my skin is an issue I am slowly but surely trying to figure out. I know about exfoliating, moisturizing, face oils and serums.. I even use UD chill setting spray instead of powder.. But we won't get into that right now! I am looking for a foundation for dry skin that doesn't accentuate dry patches and is a medium buildable coverage. I have tried Makeup forever HD invisible cover, Marc Jacobs genius gel, and IT cosmetics your skin but better and nothing is working. IT cosmetics is the best so far but it makes my skin feel SO greasy.. Any suggestions on your luck with hydrating foundations?

Okay I am at a loss.. My mascara ALWAYS gets under the outer corners of my lower lash line... I use powder to set concealer.. and water proof mascara... And trust me I know how crazy this is about to sound but bear with me... I was so tired of looking like a insane person with black under eyes.. so I stopped putting it on my lower lashes.... AND IT STILL SMUDGES UNDER MY EYE! How does that even happen?? Like there is no mascara on my bottom lashes and it still gets down there lol.
I'm new to this brand and was looking at trying a couple more products and was excited to see they came out with two palettes that have a combo of products if you're looking to try this line. Available on RMS site or Blue Mercury. Wonder if they'll come to Sephora
Smokey eye gives that sexy, flirty look that calls for attention, hence, it is dearly loved by every lady. Smokey eye could be as easy as it is to say “jack” if the right products, tools and know how are on the ground. That is why we will share some knock em dead tips to achieve the beautiful smokey eye you always want. 1. Start your makeup with your eyes: To save time and frustration that you may experience when applying your eye makeup after the face makeup is done, you should consider doing your eye first. So the first step and tip are to give your eyes your absolute concentration first, after which you will go to the face. 2. Get a primer: You may have noticed that we always suggest using a primer before applying any eyeshadow, this same rule is more particularly applicable to a smokey eye makeup. The smokey eye needs a lot of blending, and the best bet is the primer’s advantage of smoothness and an even base. You will also avoid creasing and fading with the use of a primer. 3. Good color selection: Make sure that you get a nice color collection in the same color family. A smokey eye doesn’t always have to be black. It could be teal or silver, it all depend on your preference. Since the idea of the smokey eye is a color gradient, it becomes necessary to have color varieties and shades to work out the gradient. Take, for instance; a black smokey will require a dark black, the light shade, some gray shades, and silver or white shadow. 4. Keep your eyeliner close enough: Eyeliners are critical for a smokey eye. Pencil liner type is best for this. With the liner, the top lashline, bottom lashline and waterline will be lines. The lines will also blend into the shadow so having a perfect line is not necessary. 5. Quality makeup brushes: You will find that you are investing into some quality brush quite rewarding here. For a perfect smokey eye, you will need a flat shader brush for application of eye shadow to your lid. You will also need a mid-size brush for the crease, and a pencil brush is also required for tear ducts and the lashline. Finally, you will need a fluffy one for application of highlight and for blending. For best result, buy quality brands. 6. Blend them smooth: With the fluffy brush, blend out any harshline that may still be standing out. For the crease, circular motions are best at smoking it out. 7. Browbone job: You will need a shadow that is a little lighter than your tone for your Browbone. Again, with the fluffy brush, apply the shadow on your Browbone. 8. Highlight color: Just a dot of this at the middle of Browbone will be blended out to the end of the brow, the upper part of tear duct and some under the tear duct. Because the smokey eye makeup is a heavy one, the highlight will brighten the eye. 9. Load up on lashes: use mascara on top lashes and a little waterproof mascara for bottom lashes. Flare and strip lashes alike, they are all about making the smokey eye more traumatic. 10. Do justice to the face: For a smokey eye look, a natural lip color, some bronzer on a medium coverage foundation works perfectly.
I thought I would create a thread for HUDA BEAUTY , so we could have a place to discuss news, upcoming collections, and of course post swatches! I double checked to see if there was a thread for the brand already, and I didn't see one, so here we go!
Not to generalize, but I think it's fair to say a lot of us on BeautyTalk have a slight obsession when it comes to highlighter. For me, my highlight is the finishing touch before running out the door. Some days I aim for a natural look and other days I want to look like a glistening unicorn and I know I'm not alone. Many of us have a lot of love for each of our highlighters so it's time to show them off!
Now, onto the challenge: From March 13th- April 14th let's give our highlighters some love each day by sharing details in this thread. I encourage you to get creative and be experimental with your product and technique. There are many highlight formats (liquid, powder, balms, etc.) and you can play around with the intensity of your highlight as well. Share as much or as little as you'd like, including pictures, swatches, products, tools and your favorite tips.
Can't wait to see your lustrous highlight looks!
I'm looking for a good foundation. A foundation for fair, oily, acne prone, skin that has pores and redness. I would like the foundation to also be sheer to medium coverage. It would also be best if it is around a good, affordable price. Thank you.
Hey Beauties, this thread is all about holo! Post anything from highlighters to brushes, I wanna see all you got! Feel free to ask any questions about any of the products I post and don't forget to give this thread a big ol' heart! Stay gorgeous Love, NewMoonChild
I'm fair with cool undertones and I wear fair in concealers..like Josie Maran concealer in fair works well and Kat von D's first round of tattoo concealer in Porcelain. What shade would be best for my skin tone 000 or 00. I tried calling Sephora but apparently they aren't too familar with RMS (no training provided) and it's an online only product
Due to genetics, I have always had dark/sunken in (almost hollowed in) under eyes. I have tried tons of concealers, brushes, setting powders from drug store to high end and different types of applications (beauty blender then set with setting powder with damp beauty blender, or flat concealer brush etc.). I haven't found the perfect combination to transform my concealed eyes that still look bad to nice plump under eyes. I have been using the Shiseido White Lucent under eye cream which is helping but I am looking for that airbrushed look for when I apply the concealer. I have also tried color correcting but it doesn't help with the sunken in part. Has anyone figured out the trick? All these girls on Instagram have the best under eyes and I don't know how! Thank you!
Hey y'all!! I have stick straight Asian lashes that get weighed down by almost everything. I've tried a ton (almost all) of the rumoured mascaras and curlers on the market, and I'd like to share what I've found, and also learn some new things! Keep in mind that everyone is different and what worked for me might not work for others, and vice versa. Key tips: waterproof>all, small>large wand, and really work hard to pump your curler and make a strong curl beforehand. Mascara What works: Benefit they're real! is great; holds a curl, volumizes and separates. Shu Uemura petal lash mascara! The Shu one holds a curl, rarely smudges, and looks beautiful. This is my current favourite. Shiseido nourishing base is a fantastic primer that holds a curl all day underneath almost any mascara. UD canonball mascara also holds a curl but it doesn't do much else... there isn't a lot of volumizing and it flakes onto my cheeks a bit. Too faced better than sex mascara waterproof is perfect in every way: curling, volumizing, clump-free, but it smudges onto my undereyes after just a couple of hours. If it didn't do that then my hunt would be over As for drugstore mascaras, I actually really like the Maybelline falsies waterproof and L'Oreal mascaras (million lashes, and the one in the big gold geometric tube). What doesn't work: YSL faux cils babydoll waterproof, Benefit roller lash (I KNOW... but this did absolutely nothing for my lashes and kept them straight. I tried using it every way possible before tossing it), Tarte purple tube, Lancome hypnose, Lancome cils booster XL primer, toofaced better than sex, buxom lash mascara, blinc mascara (held my curl but did nothing else), and Clinique high impact. As for drugstore mascaras, the Maybelline lash sensational weighs my lashes down still and makes them straight. Curlers I have the weirdest eyes on Earth and I've tried: Shu Uemura, Shiseido, Lancome, Tarte, Sephora XL, Tweezerman, Surratt and Revlon. The Shiseido one I really like but the Tweezerman Promaster curler is my new favourite. If you also have trouble finding a lash curler that fits your eye shape, try that one out. The Shu Uemura one is the curviest so it didn't work well for me. The Surratt beauty one is very heavy and well-made and has the flattest curve out of all of these curlers. If you need a flatter curler, try that one out. I returned it though because it somehow tore out some of my lashes on the first usage What I Haven't Tried I have just a few more mascaras to try before I give up on the perfect one. The Diorshow overcurl waterproof, Lancome definicils waterproof, Shu Uemura natural lash, and Tarte lifted. After my current tubes are out, I'll give these a try and hope for the best. Feel free to reply with your experiences and make recommendations. I hope I helped edit: this post gained more attention than I thought I would so I thought I'd add some more information. Application Tips: We've all heard of the technique where you wiggle the wand into your roots and go up, but to hold a curl it also helps to rotate the brush as you apply the formula. Also, halfway through your swipe you can try holding the wand in the middle of your lashes up to hold that curling position, then after a couple of seconds finish swiping up. This helps a lot of the time even with a good, dry formula. Removing Mascara; The biggest drawback to waterproof mascara is that it's a pain to remove. Overtime, your lashes could also fall out or not grow properly. The key is using a cleansing oil or balm in a 2 step cleansing system. I love the Shu Uemura one, and the Clinique cleansing balm. Asian brands also sell cult favourites like the Clean it Zero by Banila & Co. You have to really take your time to gently massage the oil/balm all over your face and especially onto your eyes to melt everything away. After a good couple of minutes of working the product onto my lashes, I don't need any other remover to help me out. I know this because I've tried... I used a Q tip with the Lancome makeup remover to go over my lashline and nothing came off after the 2 step cleansing system. I used to soak a cotton pad with makeup remover and really work it into my eyes but I lost too many lashes from that.

I got the chance to test it out a new rms beauty product launching very soon so, of course, I wanted to share a sneak peek. rms is launching a new Sephora exclusive cream highlight called Champagne Rosé Luminizer! It’s a soft, dewy highlight that is very subtle on my fair skin so for me this is great for days I want a natural, lit from within glow. There’s a gorgeous pink sheen which really pops on medium and deep skintones. Crazy how different highlight appears on different skin tones!
That's my hand at the top and my co-worker, Marisa's, at the bottom.
In the top photos, Marisa and I are wearing the rms alone. I'd describe this as a natural highlight on me and, for Marisa, it's a bright pop of pink. Given the dewy formula, I also wanted to layer and see if this intensified powder highlighters and the effect and was brilliant! In the photos below, we layered Becca's Prosecco Pop on top for an extra glowy look. I wish this did our golden, glowy cheekbones justice!
Back to the rms highlight! This is great for all skintypes and skintones. It's hypoallergenic, noncomedogenic and doesn't contain parabens or fragrance. I know it's coming very soon, within the next week so keep an eye out
Hi, Was wondering if someone could suggest the best Waterproof Concealer for red and brown spots on my face (red on face) and brown on my arms and legs... I'm having trouble finding one that won't just smear off! I am so frustrated!! Thank you!!!
Hey! I was wondering if someone bought the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddes Heatwave? It is in stock right now at Macys. But I want to ask someone if it is really worth it. I can't swatch it in person because the nearest mall is 2 hrs away for me😫 I do have the Becca highlighters and some ABH glowkits and the MAC sweet copper and I like metallic like highlighters. I don't own anything from estee lauder and I want to hear your thoughts about this hyped highlighter. Thank you.
I received a foundation as a gift. I used it and I got a really bad allergic reaction to it! I want to exchange it for something else, but my friend does not have the receipt anymore and they paid with cash! What can I do? Someone please help!
I'm looking for a great foundation or concealer that is great for travel, I'll be backpacking this summer around Europe and can't take my whole vanity with me. I love the Marc Jacobs foundation but I don't want to take a bulky bottle. I'd love to find a great foundation/concealed in a small package that will fit into my quart size liquids bag. I really don't care for powder foundation and prefer liquid. Thank y'all!!
So I bought a lot of makeup last time I was at Sephora, so I recieved a free 45 minute makeover. Do I need to bring my own makeup? Also, if I don't need to, can I ask that they only use cruelty-free products?
