I have blue eyes and always wear the same color eyeshadow. What other color eye shadows can I wear?

Hi, @babyblue86 !  I agree with @distracts.  I have light blue eyes, and I wear virtually any color. I gravitate towards neutrals rather than bright colors, but that is ... see post

Do you wear makeup to the gym? If so, what do you do to your face afterwards?
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

Bite Lychee
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

What makeup products under $40 do you recommend?
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.

Best fall lip colours? And the new Bite Matte Creme Lip Crayons shades?
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?

High-end products with an excellent value (The Hourglass Arch Brow Pencil)
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?

Share Your Tips to Minimize Under Eye Concealer Creasing
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.

DIY Matte lips - What am I doing wrong?

Lip Brush Woes
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.

Will foundation primer interfere with the benefits of my foundation serum?
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?

I'm trying to figure out if a facial primer is a necessity anymore?
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.
