e.l.f. illuminating palette
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

Smokey eye makeup tips
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.

Recommendations for this lip color?
She said in the video that it's Estee Edit coco balm in blush layered over a lip liner but did not mention the lip liner. The balm by itself is too sheer, and I can tell it will be more so on my tanner complexion. Does anyone have any suggestions? I love this shade! It's so fresh!

EVE LOM oil free radiance foundation
Hi guys, I recently purchased the Eve Lom oil free radiance foundation. I love the color, staying power and the way it makes my skin feel but I have the hardest time applying it. It's on the thicker side and doesn't spread that well. I try to work in smaller sections and apply thinly but I find it looks weird and patchy in certain parts of my face.   Every once in a while I manage to apply it perfectly and it looks great but I haven't been able to figure out what the difference is. I use the hourglass primer and always do it after proper skincare. I also find that putting on powder afterwards sometimes sets it nicely and other times creates almost a weird marbled pattern on my phase.   Anyone here with this foundation and tips on applying? I've tried brush, beauty blender, fingers, you name it. Thoughts?

For those of you who use MUFE Mat Velvet +
This is my HG foundation for years. But--as I've gotten older, I'm not producing as much oil I am still highly acne prone and struggling to find a moisturizer that will counteract the drying effects of this foundation but not break me out. So I was wondering, what moisturizer is everyone using underneath this foundation? Thanks!

Josie Maran Vibrancy vs. Matchmaker Serum Foundations
Can someone tell me the difference between these two?  I love the matchmaker serum foundation because it doesn't break me out or irritate my super sensitive skin (don't love the color).  I am looking for a fuller coverage, though, and I heard they may be discontinuing matchmaker. Are they pretty much the same formula?  is there anything in Vibrancy that may break out sensitive skin?   Any info/advice would be most helpful.  Thanks.

Bronzer....Laura Mercier vs. Bobbi Brown?
I have in my basket the Laura Mercier matte radiance baked powder compact in 04, and the Bobbi Brown bronzing powder in golden light I can't get both and I have no idea which one to get!!! My skin is medium with yellow to neutral undertones, oily, large pores on my cheeks (so looking for one with the least texture and shine). I like a warm bronzer, I'm not looking to contour with one. I don't mind a subtle orange tone they end up looking alright on my skin but I don't like cool or neutral tones they end up looking muddy on my skin! Any ideas?!?!

Stila 'Soul' palette packaging
Does anyone one know why the case for the Stila Eyes are the Window, Soul palette has been changed from the gorgeous yellow and rose gold compact, to a matte pale gold case/packaging with "Stila" on the front of it?? It is only the 'Soul' palette, the other three palettes in the collection have the original mirrored gold cases. I find this very strange and am hoping this is not a permanent change so I can get the palette in the original mirrored gold case.
