Weekly Color Challenge! Come Join!
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 3 August 2- 8: PINK

Tom Ford Updates
Hey Beauties- We have ALOT of threads around here for Tom Ford products.

Happy Shopping!

Bite Beauty Maple Collection? (Canada exclusive)
A few photos showed up on my instagram through Beautezine, and apparently there is a Canada-Exclusive lip collection coming out in July for the fall from Bite, let's call it the Maple Collection.

Make up to impress
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.

Best creaseless concealer?!?
Hey everyone!  I'm on the hunt for a new concealer.. I only need it like maybe like once or twice a week if my under eye area is dark.(either from lack of sleep or crazy hormones, LOL!) So I don't use it every day, but I do like to have it on hand. I am almost out of the Josie Maran Argan creamy concealer crayon and I did like it, but whenever I apply it, it creases in my under eye area and looks terrible!    I did get a sample of the Amazing Cosmetics concealer and I LOVE it. Although it's a little too expensive for my personal liking even though it is amazing. (Hehe)   So I'm looking for something a bit cheaper and that is so close (say dupe?) To the Amazing Cosmetics concealer.  Any suggestions??  Thanks a million!

Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation Match Help
Hi guys! This is my very first post so please bear with me.

No makeup. Actually.
I'm going to post a picture of me without makeup. Because hey, I love makeup, but I'm also working on embracing my face au naturel, too.   None of this "I'm not wearing makeup" when you're wearing a tinted moisturizer, brown mascara, and have a slight flush to your cheeks and lips. I'm talking no makeup AT ALL (No, not even clear lip balm).   This is me, about 10 minutes out of the shower.   Anyone else brave enough?

Makeup Lovin' Mama...so happy
My baby girl will be 13 soon.  She's been very girly all her life, even as a 3yr old she would tell me her outfits didn't match quite right, then she would go get the clothes she thought looked best...she was always right!  She started doing her own hair at 7yrs old, so she could get it just right.  LOL  She's also an dedicated athlete (she got none of these things from me! LOL)   Sooo we went to Sephora (JCP) yesterday to get her very first eyeliner and mascara!  She goes to Sephora with me all the time, but this is her very first makeup purchase.  We got Benefits they're real mini and sephora matte eyeliner in brown and black.  I'm a NW45/50, she's around a NC35/40 or so.  So the colors that favor me, probably won't favor her. This is going to be so exciting!   I was so excited.  We swatched the KVD lippies (told her we would have to wait on those) and she told me the colors she likes. I've talked to her about how the most expensive item isn't always the best and how drugstore items MAY be better depending on the item and the person.   I've tried to restrain myself and not "force" her into makeup.  I didn't start wearing makeup until I was in my 30s, getting to do this with her is so exciting and FUN!!!   Did you ladies get into makeup with your mothers as young girls?  Or did you find your way on your own.   Did I mention how happy and excited I am?

Hourglass Ambient vs Becca Perfector?
  Hello all! So lately I've become obsessed with getting a good deal on a Becca Perfector. I missed out on the mini promo and almost scored a great deal on one on HSN before it was sold out.   I normally shy away from powder highlighters, as I've had a few that look cakey/too glittery. I have pretty decent skin, so I just wear a pore primer and some bb or cc cream. I am waiting for the triple points in a few days to make a purchase, and I have heard great things about the Ambient Lighting Powder (which also has a mini version!) So my question is, does anyone have both, and which do you prefer? Or why did you go with one instead of the other?

Does anyone have experience with Rituel de Fille?
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?)

Genderqueer Makeup
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 don't want foundation or lipstick rubbing off... or heck, even sweating off sometimes.  What would you guys wear for a date?
