I've been trying out the Bobbi Brown Corrector in Light Bisque. I love how well it conceals my (very) dark circles, but it needs setting with a powder, otherwise it just never dries and smudges off throughout the day. I never set my makeup with powders, and don't really want to introduce another step into my routine just for a corrector. Are there any concealers out there that have that pink tone that act like correctors? I usually use the Nars creamy concealer in Vanilla, but I find that it just highlights my undereye area. Does that mean I should just change my concealer colour to a darker pink one?
We swatched the Urban Decay Vice3 palette to see how the colors looked on different skintones. What do you think?
Do you have a swatch of this palette? Post a pic in the thread below!

I went to ULTA yesterday and purchased one of the new IT Cosmetics Angled Blush Brushes and I have no idea how to use it. The girl helping me wasn't very friendly so I didn't ask her for any more help. I also can't seem to find a video on how to use an angled brush, so any help would be great. Thanks!
I am just now getting into wearing false lashes, even bought a lot of them recently. I love how they make my eyes look with that POP! Now here is the problem, I have been using Bimatoprost since May and my lashes are long, but not the Latisse long. I use the lashes to enhance more, but the glue(s) I use do work but some how burn my eyes a little...I don't know if its my allergies which isn;t too bad but the burning feel is not pleasant. I used Duo with vit A,C D Revlon's supplied glue that came with lashes..Eyelure now could it be because of the lash serum that could be affecting and causing the semi-burning feeling. No my eyes don;t turn red at all. Just that annoying feeling. thanks..any recommendations/advice is extremely welcomed. I love my lashes and don;t want to part with them...
Does anyone know a drug store dupe for the lorac pro liner? I'm looking for a dupe I can use everyday since I go through the pens rather quickly. I'm looking for a similar tip that is soft. I've tried the NYX fat eye marker but it too hard and drags on my eyelids. The best dupe I've tried is physician's formula but I'm looking for other options.
Winter is almost here and I definitely need to switch to a foundation with a dewier finish. Last winter I used Japonesque Luminous and it was fine...not as dewy as I would have liked. So, do you have a fave? Tell me about it! It doesn't matter if it can't be found at Sephora and cost is not a big concern. I need to get to a Dior counter to get a sample of Star. But I've read that it may be more matte than I'd like.
I haven't used any other foundation/concealer other than NC45 by MAC and their foundation that comes in numbers (No7). It's always been a little bit too dark for me and I literally have to blend it into my chest and all sorts! I was looking at Makeup Forever foundation in the colour 170 Caramel because I have more of a yellow undertone, and was wondering if anyone would you recommend this colour for me? I'm also buying from the UK so really don't want to have to send it back. Thank you!
my eyes are uneven, my left one is a bit (maybe 1mm) lower than my right. sometimes people don't notice unless i tell them, sometimes they do. i'm really insecure about it so i can never look at anyone in the eyes for too long cuz i'm scared they'll notice. what can i do to fix this?
Hi all =) I tried finding previous topic on this but unable to so any link to previous post or if you have answer will be greatly appreciated ^__^ My face is really dry right now so I started to wear moisturizer and/or oil under my primer. I tried several combination with different result: - moisturizer (caudalie lip and eye and ole henriksen truth creme/ origin day ginzing), smahbox primer, bb cream, then smashbox powder. I find using thosse moisturizer makes my face darker than it was before, resulting in my neck being much lighter than my face (so no good =I) - tarte oil, smahbox primer, bb cream, then smashbox powder. Using this, my face so much streak it's not even funny.Applying powder makes it better but I spend so much time trying to get my bb cream to blend from the ugly streaks =( With winter coming, I know there will be time to use moisturizer under makeup. Do you guys have any recommendation for moisturizer that won't change the color of my makeup? I'm pretty happy with my makeup routine right now but any recommendation for anything that should be change would be appreciated. Thanks =)
I am a huge fan of special effects/movie/Halloween makeup, although I never really try to do it myself. I love to admire from my sofa. Haha I've found a few YouTubers who I feel are very talented and fun to watch. I'm looking for preferably trained SFX artists who offer amazing content. It doesn't necessarily need to be tutorials that I can follow, because it's highly unlikely I would try to replicate anything I see online. I even enjoy watching gore tutorials, like acid burns, zombie bites, bruising, missing fingers, etc. It can be creepy, but I find it really interesting and fun to watch. For a frame of reference, here are a few YTers I've come across and tend to enjoy the majority of their SFX makeup, although I'm not that impressed with many of their beauty tutorials: MadeYewLook by Lex Glam&Gore Bonnie Corban SFX Ellimacs SFX Makeup Goldiestarling KlairedelysArt The more out there, complicated and realistic, the better! Thanks, everyone, for any suggestions you have!
I bought her lipstick and tried it on around 3 days ago without a lip liner and the lipstick was very uneven and patchy. I'm assuming of course this is because of the lip liner so some suggestions would be appreciated!
I'm trying to color match myself to purchase Kat Von D's Lock it foundation online. Unfortunately going in-store isn't an option for me as the nearest Sephora is several hours away. I wear an NW13 in MAC and a 1.0 in Urban Decay's Naked foundation. Any advice?
Hi guys! I've been looking for a lipstick/stain that has a nice matte look to it preferably preferably dark tones such as deep red or purples. Also, one that lasts long or would last long with a lip primer. Any suggestions? Thank!
I am looking at getting the Becca pressed highlighter in Opal (since I am very pale), and am also looking at getting a new blush. What are all of your favorite brands/blushes? I am Estee Lauder DW 1n1, have medium brown hair and blue eyes so if any of you can give any color suggestions for me, that would be very helpful as well! thank you all in advanced! -amanda
I have used Makeup Forever HD foundation in #135 Vanilla . I really want to try the Mat Velvet and the Pro finish Multi-use powder but I need help deciding which colors would resemble the #135 Vanilla. I have light to medium skin with pink undertones. Please advise! Thanks so much!
Skin Type: Oily. Color: Usually around Ivory, im pretty white. I have been through many foundations, Recently i bought Makeup Forever Mat Velvet + matifying in Ivory and i hate it. I feel like after two hours it makes me look oily. It is just unattractive. It goes on flawlessly though, which is what i am looking for. I need a full coverage foundation for Oily skin. I do have acne and freckles, so it needs to be able to cover that up. I have been thinking about the YSL foundation, their new one, but it is so expensive. For primer i use my Hourglass Primer which is amazing! Any suggestions!?
First and foremost, let me give you what I'm looking for: I need a no-transfer, full-coverage, super pale foundation, both liquid and powder. Read on if you want to know about my skin type and a little about my routine and beauty history, so to speak. Let me give an explanation and a little history so maybe someone can identify what I'm looking for here. I have been on a never-ending search for the right foundation for my skin type for years. My skin is only mildly oily. I have mild freckles but mostly my skin is uneven, so that is why I like to use full-coverage foundation; to even out my skin tone. I am INCREDIBLY pale, like ghost-white, and I cannot stress this enough because it seems like every shade I have ever tried has been too dark, even every brand's so-called "palest" shade. I have seen some websites recommend buying an actual "white" base and combining a sparse amount of it with a light shade, but that seems messy and like a bit of a hassle to do every morning for my beauty routine. I prefer if a foundation is transfer-resistant, so that it doesn't rub off just from itching your face or something. But I like to use a liquid foundation first and then a powder foundation to help set it, so if that helps then I'm willing to use a liquid foundation that isn't totally transfer-proof. I like to feel nice and airy, like I just rubbed lotion on my face and have it dry into my skin. I have had foundations like this before, so I know they are out there. Just haven't found light-enough shades. Also don't remember the brands which is my own dumb fault. Back in 2012 I got married, and my friend did my makeup for me on the wedding day. She told me she used Makeup Forever HD Invisible Cover Foundation first in 115, and then the Pro Finish Multi-Use Powder in 115. They're both Pink Ivory shades which I thought was weird, since my undertones aren't super pink. I'm a mix between pink and olive, I guess. Not so much orange or yellow, though, so I really struggle with store-brand stuff making me look like an oompa-loompa. Anyway, my makeup was FLAWLESS that day. Just as pale as I needed. I don't remember what she used to apply it though. However, has Makeup Forever changed their formula since then? I have since bought the same products and I can't seem to get the same paleness and it also doesn't seem to last as long, using the same techniques and routines as my friend did. I'm also unsure of how the shades work. Is 110 typically a lighter shade than 115? I recently bought the Makeup Forever liquid and powder foundations I mentioned in the previous paragraph in 110, as in the pictures they looked to be paler, but when I put them on, I was literally ORANGE. I looked horrible. Super dark. So now I'm afraid to try the 115 again in case the formula has been changed and it's darker than it was before. Also, it proved to not be transfer-resistant, so I am looking for a new foundation anyway. This is my routine: I usually do my eyes first, as my hands are shaky and I tend to mess up my eyeliner a lot, so I prefer not to have to mess up my foundation and everything else. First I apply an eyeshadow primer. I use Palladio Herbal Eyeshadow Primer (Sally's). It works ok, it's very smooth and works best with more expensive brands. Wears allllll day. Up until recently I would then apply a shade from the Naked 2 Eyeshadow Palette by Urban Decay (I ran out of my favorite shade, Bootycall) all over my eyelid and partially onto my browbone. I prefer a natural look normally. Last few days I've been using either YDK or Suspect with Foxy glossed over it. Then comes eyeliner. I've been religiously doing the cat-eye look since I was 16. Shapes my face well. I've been using a liquid liner the past few years, previously a gel liner, but that was very transferable, so that's when I switched to liquid. I used Wet'n'Wild liquid liner in black, but for some reason, after many many years of using it, I started having an allergic reaction to it, so sadly I had to stop using it. It NEVER came off or transferred onto my eyelid. I'm very sad I had to stop using it. For being a drugstore brand, it rocked. Lately I've been using L'Oreal's Telescopic. I don't really like it but I've been too lazy and cheap to go find another one. Eyes are done (for now). Now I'll apply foundation. I really have not been consistent with foundation at ALL lately, so I'm not even going to mention that. I have been using the pink Beauty Blender from Sephora, lightly wet, but I've been questioning if that is part of why my foundation has been transferring. Is that possible? Currently in between blush as well. Up until a few months ago, I was using a product from MAC, Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade. It made my skin "glow", in a way. I loved it. I applied to to my brow, nose, under my eyes, and along my jaw. With a blush brush. After the face is done, depending on what mood I'm in, I'll either spray it with Skindinavia finishing spray or not. THEN I'll apply mascara. I really like L'Oreal's Miss Manga mascara in black, but I need to buy some more. I know it's a bit of info to process, but I figure this could help narrow the results. Any suggestions? Thanks!
