I went to the pool and all the girls and women were wearing makeup. And I don't have perfect skin and I went without makeup and my friend was surprised I would so such a thing, but I was more shocked that she wearing concealer, foundation, and mascara. Any ladies out there who wear makeup to the pool/beach, what products do you use besides waterproof mascara and eyeliner? And am I crazy not to be wearing makeup there ahah
So I have exactly 3 weeks until my brother's wedding and I'm struggling with figuring out my makeup. I am doing my own and I want to look like me but wedding appropriate. I use BB creams every day, I have a load of mostly shimmery eye-shadows, I wear Kat Von D's black tattoo liner every day. My dress is black, my skin is pale (tho I'm trying to tan it up just a hint so I don't look like a ghost in it). My hair will be a purple based red for the wedding and the colors are black, white, yellow/gold with accents of purple (hence the hair being okay to be purple). I've heard so much mixture on what your makeup should be, matte vs dewy, natural vs dramatic, toned down vs statement, matte vs shimmery... Should I ditch the BB creams for the day and switch to a foundation? Should I go for a bright or neutral lip? Should my eye makeup be shimmery or matte? Should I ditch the black liner and try something I am unfamiliar with? Should my face be matte or dewy (my skin can tend to get a bit oily thru the day too)? Lots of questions, but while I've got my daily look and my going out looks firmly in hand, I want to look awesome for this wedding and need advice and suggestions! Also, I wear contacts and have no clue what mascara will last me thru the day and not irritate my eyes. HELP!
What do you guys think about this years kit? Will you be buying it? I just saw it in the new arrivals section but is not for sale yet.. What are you most excited about in this kit? Im still debating if i should get it! Link to the kit: http://www.sephora.com/sun-safety-kit-P379059?skuI d=1524727 *UPDATE 5/8: Sephora took it down since it's not for sale yet, but it will be for sale mid-end of May!! Check back!
I have seen this post before so I thought it would be fun to do another one. Because what someone may love you may hate. Here is my list: -MUFE Mat Velvet Plus, I bought this because I get oily in summer but I feel like it makes a greaseball -Benefit Boing- Just didn't get the hype -NARS Deep Throat- Expensive for the size, and color looks pretty in pan but have to apply a lot because it is sheer -Ole Henriksen Truth Serum- Made me break out more
So I've been reading some articles about natural makeup products. Some people swear by using natural products and say its made their skin much better, others say that there were chemicals in natural makeup that they didn't realize and it actually harmed their skin. What do you think? Is using natural makeup better or worse than using just regular unnatural products?
Hey everyone! After years of struggling with bad skin, I have finally decided to take on a healthier lifestyle - not just to improve my inner well being, but also my outer (skin, hair, etc.). With that being said, I'm hoping to hear some of your success stories: did drinking more water help improve your skin, did your foundation start working and applying better after making healthy changes, etc. Looking for a little inspiration! I hope to hear from you guys and get your input!
So I going on vacation to Disney World in two weeks and wanted to know if anyone has suggestions on how to best pack my makeup (I've never done it)? Any tips on where to go to get empty containers? ETC ETC ETC
This is probably the weirdest question ever asked but whatever, here it goes! I normally have had pretty tame eyebrows, so they've never been waxed/plucked etc. before. But lately, hairs have popped in between them and on top and below! I don't know if they are noticeable to other people but they are bugging me! Plus, I think getting my eyebrows shaped would add some nice definition to my face. But what do you think? Does it hurt really bad? Am I going to get it done and have waxing phobia that's worse than my unibrow phobia?? Please help!
I just got a beauty blender since some of you have recommended it. And I want to thank all of you that have because I am so loving it for foundation!!! Any who, I washed it for the first time today using baby shampoo (Thats what I normally use for my makeup tools) and i noticed pink dye started running out of the beauty blender.. Is this normal?
When I got into makeup about a year ago I felt like Sephora was like Toys R Us for people who loveee makeup. You can sample products in the stores and theres always soooo many options for what you're looking for. However now that Im starting to get my staple makeup products down I find that there are some things I will or already have repurchased because they work sooo well for me. My repurchased items are... -Naked Basics Palette: I lovee the neutral looks I can make with this palette while also having the option to make it a bit bolder if I wanted to. -Bobbi Brown Corrector and Concealer: I love the consistency of these products creamy and go on soo smooth. -Smashbox Lipstick in Primrose: its my lips but better lipstick and sooo moisturizing
I'm curious if anyone watches Sephora TV? I like the make up ones where they show you applications and give a list of products used at the end, and some of the nail/hair ones. Altho there's no search or favorite functions, does anyone else like or watch them? o.O Aaand I was going to embed a couple of my favorite in here but apparently you can only embed youtube videos and there's no html tab for me to go in and write it in. http://www.sephora.com/sephoratv/sephoratv.jsp?ooi d=BzbXQ3NDoFKUEurBk_xFJ9Q962PtNomR http://www.sephora.com/sephoratv/sephoratv.jsp?ooi d=o2OWlrNTq9qYtQTUYJCHlGme4x0XBw1_
I just looked at the new point perks Sephora is offering and I saw a tarte 500 pt. perk! -Lights, Camera, Lashes! (0.10 oz) -Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Eyeshadow in Shimmering Moss (0.10 oz) -Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Exposed (0.05 oz) -Pure Maracuja Oil (0.23 oz) -Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder (0.07 oz) What do you think? Yay or nay?
Has anyone given this a try or thought about getting this? I heard many reviews about this, especially Dim. I want to get BT opinions on this one before I go into Sephora. I know I won't be walking out with just one item.
I've been thinking about venturing into the world of falsies and am finding that there's HUGE price differences between different types. Based on old threads and limited personal experience, I definitely get that glue is super important and that no matter how much you spend, you really shouldn't use the same pair too many times. My question is, how much difference is there between more expensive brands like MUA versus cheaper ones? Also, can people recommend some favorite cheaper sets?
Okay so I have noticed that not all the sharpeners can work with all the pencils! I currently have Nyx Jumbo eyeshadow pencils and Nars Velvet Gloss lip pencils! I wanted to know if you have them and what sharpeners do you use for them! Can you use the same one for both? Or is there one i can find that has both?
I know mascaras are supposed to be replaced every 3 months, but what about foundations, concealers, blush, powders, eye shadows and lipsticks/ lip glosses? I recently went through and got rid of makeup that I knew was old. Now, I'm not sure what should be tossed or used up.
I need help with a foundation for rosacea - I am 69 years old, with somewhat dry sensitive skin and today for some reason my cheeks are on fire and don't know what I did to cause this. have not used anything different - any help will be appreciated.
I've been using Ole Henriksen Sheer transformation before my primer and it's been working pretty good for me, but i was wonder what other moisturizers would be good for applying before makeup to help with oil control and make skin look better, any suggestions?
I've heard its name so often and it hasn't been in the stores recently so It looks like online would be the only option for me for the time being...but is it really that great? What's given it such a great reputation?
I haven't tried too many products from this brand but I am considering being a consultant since I stay at home with my son. Does anyone have favorite products from this line? I have liked some of their eveyshadows and the satin hands collection.
I'm wanting to buy a new liquid liner because the one I have right now (I think it's Maybelline...) is starting to smudge/melt as it gets warmer out I'm looking for one that will last all day and is fairly easy to apply. Any recommendations?
Ok I thought it would be really fun to do a thread about what is your favorite beauty products for each color of the rainbow. If you don't have a beauty product then fashion works as well ^_^. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, & Violet are the colors. Indigo for me is a more blue purple color. So if you skip Indigo don't worry ^_^ Here are mine (so hard to pick just one for each) Red - Mac Charmed I'm Sure lipstick Orange - Maybelline Orange Edge Lipstick Yellow - Inglot 474 Eyeshadow Green - Mac Jealously Awake Eyeshadow Blue - Orly High on Hope nail polish Indigo - Urban Decay Ransom eyeshadow (not pictured it was in a palette) Violet - OCC liptar in Belladonna
