So school is soon approaching and I am going to be starting my masters degree in Epidemiology (excited yet scared)! Anyways, I am certain that I am going to be very busy and will only be able to go to the gym between class breaks or before class starts. Other than that, I will be researching, with clients, or TAing. My question is, do you or should you go to the gym with makeup on? If you do, what do you do with your face afterwards? Obviously I do not want to reapply my makeup on a sweaty face and if I shower, I would have to start my whole skincare regime again followed by makeup (which takes quite a long time). In addition, I would be in a male locker room and could you imagine what those "gym jocks" would think if they saw me doing my routine ... oh please (I hate when people judge). Any tips, advice or suggestion would be great to hear! Definitely let me know, thank you so much in advance! Michael, xo
I bought recently the Bite lip duo that has the two colors Lychee and Musk and I am in love! Now Musk I see you buy in full size but I did not see the color Lychee in full size. Does anyone know if this color is available in full size or a shade that is similar? That color is my perfect nude for my fair skin. Thanks for the help
I was recently gifted a $25 gift card, which I am very excited to use, but I have no idea what to get. I figured I would need a little more cash to cover the cost of what I may want, so I decided to budget myself at $40 so I wouldn't have to spend too much money. As excited as I am to go shopping, I have no idea what to get. I was thinking I would try Josie Maran's makeup because I have been loving their skincare, but then I started looking into other brands and their products so I am no longer sure what I want to get. So I was wondering what makeup products you guys would recommend that are under $40. I am pretty much open to any type of makeup because I always love trying new items and new brands.
I've always stuck to neutral pink/red or bold red lip shades. I'd really like to experiment a bit more with new colours this fall - darker! More plum/purple/brown tones. But I'm also a little bit nervous. I've got fair skin (cool undertones), brown eyes (pretty dark), and brown hair with quite a bit of red in it (like a dark auburn almost). Any suggestions? I think I'm going to pick up Givenchy Le Rouge in Violine Precieux, although I think that's a fairly safe shade to pick. I've also been eyeing the new Bite shades - but none of the stores near me have them in stock yet has anyone had a chance to swatch them or see what they look like in person?
I recently bought the HOURGLASS Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil, because of the great reviews. I was going through a Brow Wiz way too quickly. When I found out the Hourglass pencil is 0.014oz, for $32 ($37CAD), compared to 0.003oz $21($27) for the Brow Wiz, I was sold. If you compare the 2, the brow wiz is so much more expensive! You would pay $98 ($126 CAD) for the same amount of product! I even compared it with drugstore products and it's still a better value. So, my question is, do you have any other go-to products that you think have such a great value?
Please share your Personal Tips/Products/Tricks to Minimize Under Eye Concealer from Creasing. Also, what under eye products...Moisturizer/Primer/Concealer/Tool(s) do you use? I'm especially interested in your suggestions for Dry, Crepey or Mature Under Eye Skin Texture trouble shooting. P.S. I've had a sudden weight loss which makes my under eye area look like a deflated balloon. I'm unable to use HA's due to sensitivity having to ditch everything with high amounts of HA's.
Hello Makeup Experts, How do I achieve perfect eyebrows everyday? My brows are sparse and I naturally have a wide space between them and have been told that I need to bring them in closer with the aid of makeup (eye shadow or pencil). Thanks and have a great weekend, TMS
I just spotted this on Temptalia.... They are 10 for $12 or 30 for $22... I just... why? Why would you spend over (or almost) a dollar for a lip wipe? Am I missing something here? Are we too good for a spitty tissue to wipe off mistakes or stain?
I tried to achieve a matte lips look with loose powder (LM translucent powder) over a tissu (and half a tissu) and when I removed tissu, the result is matte but all color seem to stay on the tissu instead of my lips. So, I'd like to get some trick to get this look without buying (again) other lipsticks. Thanks!!!
What would be an equivalent to Prescriptives ANYWEAR MULTI-FINISH COMPACT FOUNDATION in Antelope (Y/O)? They seem to have discontinued it without informing me and my conpact fell and broke this very morning! I need help asap! It has to be somewhat mattifying as i have combination skin that can get oily throughout the day.Any advice would be welcome!
I have a few samples/palettes that require lip brushes for application. I bought the Sephora Collection Pro Lip Brush #81 (shown below), but I'm not a fan of it. Perhaps I don't know how to use it. Either way, I'm not getting the results I want. Anyone have a suggestion on a lip brush for dummies? It doesn't have to be from Sephora. I'd also be okay with someone telling me exactly how to use a lip brush.
Hi beauties, I'm thinking of giving foundation primer a try. Currently I am using Perricone No Foundation Foundation Serum and I adore how it looks and feels - it just doesn't seem to stay on all day, thus bringing me to my two questions: will a primer help the foundation stay on longer and will using a primer interfere with the anti aging and skin benefits of the foundation serum? Oh and I was thinking of beginning my primer experience with Laura Mercier because I have a deluxe sample size. Thoughts?
Okay I KNOW this is months early BUT I want to start making my wish list early this year for all the stores that usually have good deals around the holidays. I know Sephora does the VIB 20% off... But that is all that's coming to my mind right now... Does anyone know or remember where all had good beauty deals last year that will/maybe have deals this year?
I love the YSL Touche Eclat foundation but I can't find the right color. I've tried Beige 10 (its to light) and Beige Dore 10 (slightly to dark that its noticeable even when well blended). Any suggestions? My best match is the Estee Lauder Double Wear Light in 1.0. A lot of paler are people are wearing B30? Is it lighter than the ones I mentioned?
Have you guys seen these?! There are tons of shades and finishes to choose from, and you can build your own palette! I can't wait to try these; I wonder if Sephora will carry all of the shades? There are so many and I'd really like to go in and test a good chunk of them. http://www.sephora.com/artist-shadow-P387670?skuId =1622745
I just tried (sample) of dipbrow pomade in taupe and love it better than powder for the lasting power and definition it gives to my brow. I was affraid by this kind of product because I want a natural finish. Which pomade is the best out there?
I currently use the Body Shop's Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream. It does a great job controlling my oil throughout the day and making my face nice and matte before I put on my foundation. A couple of times I decided to skip the primer and just applied my foundation after moisturizing. Honestly the only thing I noticed was that my nose got really oily but the rest of my face was perfectly fine. Do you think I can do without? Or should I just apply primer to my nose only? Not sure which direction I should go.
can i use a brush with foundation that is thick like TARTE Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15 if yes what brush would you suggest? or if not suitable for brush (which sucks cus i love it and have a spare bottle) what would u recommend with same coverage? do you clean foundation brush everyday? i am always in such a rush. thank you
I have oily, acne prone skin that is super light. I have tried Bobbi Brown's foundation, Kat Von D, & Benefit foundations, all were in the lightest shade and still seemed too dark for my skin. I am looking for a full coverage, matte foundation that has enough shades that the lightest one would be able to work for a very fair person. Does any one have any suggestions? Also what is a good foundation brush to use that packs a lot of coverage?
