Hello beautiful people! So I am absolutely in love with primers lately... I've noticed how much they help my makeup stay on and looking fresh (and matte!) throughout the day. But I'm almost out of my Benefit Porefessional and Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer . Both I LOVE but I saw Benefit just released the Stay Flawless 15 Hour Primer . Anyone tried this out or have opinions on others that may be even better? If I'm spending this much money I want to make sure it's worth it! vs. vs. Thanks ahead of time
I bought the Sephora brand mattifying compact foundation in the color PEACH. I really like this foundation as far as ease of use and all day wear but I'm not loving the color. It's too reddish. Does anyone know what a more neutral choice might be? No undertone of red or orange but still the same skin tone (level of light or dark)???
A friend has a few sample packets of Josie Maran Argan Oil and is going to give them to me. Because I know it dries my face out, I probablon wont use it in that area, has anyone used it for their fingers or cuticles?
Hello All, Anyone tried out the Makeup Forever Back Tango Palette? I am really curious about it and would love to hear some feedback...but would even more LOVE to see some photos!!! Anyone recommend this product for a hazel eyed gal like myself? Muah! D
i've already purchased this and i'm waiting on it to come in the mail, but the more i look at the ivory i keep feeling like its too dark for me, i wear about 117 in the makeup forever HD foundation but i like my foundation very pale with almost no orange tone, do you think the ivory foundation would be a good fit for me? or will it be too orange? i also use the Green makeup forever primer to make my skin less red if that matters. Thank you guys
I've been looking for a new bronzer (I currently use BareMinerals Warmth) I enjoy warmth, and find the coloring quite good for my very pale skin. It doesn't turn me orange, or red, but just naturally glowing. The only thing I do not like about it is that it is as matte as they come and I would really like something with slight shimmer. Also I do not like how it is a loose powder, it gets everywhere! Anyway, I've been looking for a new bronzer and for some reason the Naked Flushed palette really pulled me in. I like the blush in it, and the highlighter, but I can't seem to tell if the bronzer will be too orange. Does anyone have that problem with it? And if anyone can do a comparison between the bronzer from Flushed and NARS Laguna, that would be godsent!
Hi all, I have a moderate tremor in both hands and it makes the more precise aspects of makeup application difficult. Specifically I have trouble with eyeliner and mascara. I can't get a straight line with the eyeliner and I keep stabbing myself in the eye or getting wicked smudges with the mascara. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to apply eye makeup with shaky hands? Thanks to anyone who has thoughts!
I have to fill in some sparse areas in my brows and am looking for something that looks the most natural. I often find that if I get anything but the lightest color it is too dark and harsh for me. I have light brown hair.
Hi!!!! I am looking for a new foundation! I have... - Really pale skin (almost no match with mac except in the studio sculpt NC15, but can't use it anymore makes me breakout) (reference: Mac studio sculpt NC15, Nars concealer in Chantilly match my skin beautifully, lancôme Teint idole Ultra 24h in 100 ivoire N) - Neutral skintone - Skin tends to be very dry sometimes and flaky, but some foundation in the past have make me a little bit oily (but not so bad) - I've got some redness, breakouts and blackheads in the T zone (not so bad at all) - I like medium coverage or full foundation but the color have to be a very good match to my natural color because I apply it just were I need it (mostly the T zone) The problem is that at the end of the day, mostly on my chin, the foundation tends to become really patchy and awful looking. Eveywhere else it is looking quite good! I've tried to use primer but they tend to make my skin look flaky and patchy ! I am more of the kind of girl who needs to moisturize to make the foundation glide easily and look good! So I really need some suggestions...Help me please ! (sorry for my english, not my first language)
Hello! I am looking for either a foundation/ tinted moisturizer/ etc to wear on my face during the summer for an easy makeup application. I would like it to have SPF as I will be out in the sun, as well as sweatproof, so it is not dripping down my face in the middle of the day. Let me know what my best options are! I just bought the Dior BB cream which has spf 30, however I am seeing it wipe off a little here and there, so I am not sure it would be able to outlast sweat and water. Thanks!
So a while back in Jan and even recently i asked the MUFE location near me if the duo mat was still being discontinued and they said yes. Then 2.5 mons ago i wrote to MUFE to ask them and they just NOW responded with this: "Thank you for your interest in MAKE UP FOR EVER. We have heard our consumers loud and clear, we will not be making any changes to the current distribution of duo mat. The quantities and shades available will remain the same. Please know that your customer satisfaction is greatly valued and we appreciate your feedback." UPDATE: response email to clarify "Due to overwhelming customer response and love for the product, Duo Mat is no longer be discontinued. It is our priority to service you and meet your needs. However, if your local Sephora is out of stock on your favorite shade, you may always place a phone order through our NYC Studio." I hope this is the case as the duo mat does keep me mat longer.
I love makeup so much and I was wondering what I need to do about this obsession and if I can wear make up in public. I have wanted to play with makeup for about a year now and i have loved when girls put makeup on me or i use some of my moms. I would love to take this to a new level and start wearing makeup in public or just buying makeup and trying it on at home and practicing. Some day i would love to be a makeup artist. I would also need a way to do this without my parents knowing and how would i buy the makeup i want.
So I was on facebook and I saw an ad for a nail polish company I had never heard of before. It's called Bootie Babe (google it, I can't put the link) and its got some really nice colors, but it has one major difference from all other nail polishes -- all the bottles are shapes like booties!! (butts, backsides, derrieres, whatever you like to call it) I've never tried the brand, but I thought it was pretty funny, what do you think? ~We are all beautiful~
I haven't worn much waterproof make up before and don't have make up remover (just soap and water). Usually I use Buxom's insider liner in onyx (and several other colors), and I'm about to run out and was thinking of trying the new hold the line but... how would you get it off?? I've heard a couple things to get waterproof eyeliner off, olive oil, lotion or make up remover on a q tip, but is that really ok to get in your eyes? Is it bad to not use remover to get it out? (Like leave it or reapply?) I'd imagine it would be but would love to hear an explanation...
I dont know which to go with. I have light/medium skin (on the definite lighter side now but may tan up later). Should I go with a soft blush or light bronzer? which will be more in the season and look good?? thank you
Can someone please tell me how to use a cream eye eyeliner? I recieved the Smash box trio cream eye liner sample. It's too thick and dry to use straight out of the jar. I have dipped my brush in water prior to usage and all it did was give a FAINT light bit of color, kind of like a water color set. I also just purchased http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P27 8400&categoryId=C10905 and again no idea how to use the cream eyeliner. Thanks in advance
Is it sad that I check every morning and see if it's been released yet? When I get home too? Is it even sadder that I used a $100 bonus card from work to buy an egift card for myself in anticipation of this collection? I was OBSESSED with this movie as a little girl!!! When I was very little I remember my Mom being gone on a trip to Italy and my Dad knowing how much I loved this movie had the bright idea to buy me everything Little Mermaid in sight on a Walmart trip. LOL I have Cerebral Palsy and am in a wheelchair so I always wanted to be "part of their world." (like everyone else kind of thing) I so WISH that I had gotten the Cinderella Mirror when I could have as I a castle FREAK as I LOVE LOVE LOVE the castle at WDW. I am still devastated that I missed out on the mirror! Anyway, I will be snagging the Ariel mirror and palette, what about you?
I love natural stuff, and neutral makeup products. I don't even know why. So i was just relaxing and fooling around with my makeup when i randomly thought, "What's the point of wearing neutral eyeshadows when it doesn't look like you're wearing anything?" and it really bothered me to not know. I guess what I'm asking is why do people wear neutral eyeshadows and stuff? Especially when most are shimmery and it's obvious you put eyeshadow on that is practically the same color of your skin... This must sound really weird, especially coming from me because probably half my posts are about "natural looking makeup", "neutral eyeshadows", "natural eye palettes", etc hahaa.
Hey everyone! I just did something drastic to my hair! I went from a dark, rich red to a light blonde. I love it, but I'm not sure if the makeup routine I have will still work out with this new shade. It seems to change my face. If anyone has any suggestions for how to look my best or adapt the colors I use, I'd love to hear it. For reference: green eyes, porcelain skin running towards cool tones, and not at all afraid of bright, bold colors!
Hi there! I want to buy this foundation, but my question is: which shade am I? I'm currently using Revlon Colorstay in 150 Buff and I purchased Mat Velvet in 35, but it's far too dark for me. I'm thinking about shade 20? But I don't want to buy wrong shade again, it's a waste of money for me. I have some yellow/beige skin undertones. I'll be very grateful for any help
I have recently been learning a bit more about how to contour the face and define the cheekbones, and have been looking for matte products to use for this. I am new to contouring, and currently use MAC's powder blush in Harmony and Blunt, with the Sigma F05 brush, the MAC 168 brush, and a MAC tapered blending brush for my nose. However, I am not madly in love with any of these and would like to continue my search for my favourite contouring products and tools. Any recommendations? I have red hair, ivory skin with warm undertones, hazel eyes, and I like to avoid shimmer/glitter (I prefer natural looking shades for my face, so I can do a more defined contour without looking over the top).
Okie my recent question/post was nicely resolved etc thanks all you beauties expertos!!! I tried the Dr. Jarte BB cream for first time ever (never tried/used BB creams) and then applied my LM found. powder (i didn't even use primer and liquid foundation), and omg i got nice even good coverage and didn't really have to keep reapplying throughout the day! butt my ? is, for oily skins, should i/is it ok to keep reapplying my LM found. powder throughout the day? Or is a pressed powder better? btw, i'm just wondering out loud, i wonder why my face is oily but my body is dry?!! TIA!!~
I'm 18, and I have such a hard time finding a foundation that matches me. My face has more pinkish undertones, while my neck is more yellowish. I can't use just any foundation, as my skin is oily and acne prone. I have an skincare routine that I am using religiously (I know that the most important thing for my makeup is my skincare) but I'm really having issues with clearing up my face. I have tried so many different types of foundations. I haven't used drugstore foundation in such a long time - though I've been tempted to look into products such as revlon colorstay and some of the neutrogena foundations. I have used probably every Clinique foundation (unless it was meant for dry skin), Lancome 24hr, Estee Lauder double wear/dw light, urban decay naked skin, benefit oxygen wow, makeup forever hd, stila stay all day, and most recently the tarte amazonian clay (and many, many more). The problem that I had with the benefit is that I still seemed to shine through, no matter what combination of other products that I was using - primers, setting powder, etc. As for Urban Decay, I DO like it, but my skin just isn't clear enough for me to use that right now. I like the Stila stay all day, however the color is a bit off for me. I also like the makeup forever hd, but I REALLY would love to try the mat velvet; I've heard sooo many good things about it for oily skin. The color that I was matched with for the HD was one of the closest matches that I have gotten: 115. How do these numbers compare with the mat velvet? Also, I'm at least a good 3 hours away from a Sephora store; if I order it online and it just doesn't work out for me, how would sending it back work out? I do have a sample of a clinique stay matte that seems to match fairly well, so I plan on seeing how that does on my skin as well. Are there any foundations that I'm missing? I hate the pinkish tone that sooo many of the foundations I have tried give me. I'm using the Tarte smooth operator setting powder. This and the Laura Mercier transparent loose powder are my two favorite powders that I have EVER used. I do not use a primer; I have tried sooo many, and they honestly seem to have the opposite effect on my skin.. foundations tend to look as if they are more settled in my pores! I'm sorry for the essay, I just really want to find my HG foundation. I thought I had with the double wear light, but it just wasn't suiting me. I would like at least a medium coverage, if not full. I don't necessarily like the dewey look, but I do want to look as natural as possible. PLEASE HELP!
Hi I want to start using an eye primer. I was looking at Urban Decay primer potion or Bare Minerals prime time eyelid primer. Which one of these would you guys recommend? If not these which one? Thanks
