Hi! I've been looking for a nice pressed powder foundation. My skin is not oily or acne-prone. I'm 17 and I want a nice coverage, without having the foundation blocking my skin from breathing. Ideally the powder would come with an applicator because I don't have any brushes and can't invest in one. Thank you!
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
So, I really want to try a really vibrant violet lip color. I looked in past threads to get ideas but the last post was about a year ago and, let's be real, a whole lot of new makeup products come out in a year. So I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions! I am not looking for anything dark or vampy. I am contemplating Too Faced Violet Melted Lipstick. If anyone has any other ideas I would really appreciate it!
Okay ladies and gents I'm going to VEGAS 8/27 first time ever!!! I have a list of places I want to go...makeup wise. Inglot, sephora, CCO (is the CCO worth a special trip?). Any places (makeup) I should hit, ones I should avoid? I DO NOT (just not worth it for me) do VERY high end brands. Marc Jacobs is the most expensive brand I have. I have been saving my coins for a while and now it's time to just buy buy buy. I'm NW45/MUFE 178 so I usually only buy from companies that make products for the deeper tones. It's principle for me. Post your ideas (please please please), previous adventures, and best kept secrets! I'll post what I get when I return home and decompress. May the makeup Goddesses and Gods be forever in your favor. May your holy grail products never be discontinued or in short supply. May your favorite product drop on the floor and never break. May your makeup storage be all that you dream and cleaned and organized by sweet smelling fairies. Be makeup blessed! *can you tell I'm super excited*
I didn't start wearing makeup until I was in my 30's. The learning curve has been steep and there are still things I struggle with learning. How do I find makeup classes in my area? I don't want to go to a makeup counter, I want a true sit down and learn class. Everyone and their mama is a MUA these days how do I go about finding a TRUE MUA and taking a class? I really want to learn how do a winged liner (hooded eyes), apply eyelashes, contouring, highlighting and different shadow techniques. Can you all help me? I'm in the northeast close to DC/DelMarVa/Philly areas. TIA NAA
I've always worn eyeliner on my top and bottom lids. Now that I'm 40, I'm thinking of changing things up a bit. I'm wondering if the liner on my bottom lid is too harsh, too much, you know? That being said, if I don't wear liner on my bottom lash line, I feel like my makeup is incomplete and my eyes just don't look right. Normally, I use pencil on my bottom lash line, UD's 24/7 to be exact. I've also tried using Clinique's bottom lash mascara, which I like....but to me, it looks a little "off" without liner to go with it. Should I try lining my bottom lash line with eye shadow instead? I'm thinking that might give me a softer look? What about my waterline? If I don't use liner on my waterline, I feel that I look weird. I've tried pencil, cream, and liquid liner in all different brands. I just want to find a look that will compliment me now that I'm in my 40's. I don't want to wear my eye makeup the way I did in my 20's because it makes me look like I'm trying too hard.....if that makes sense? Anyway.....any advice or tips y'all could send my way would be wonderful!
My skin has been really good lately, so when I apply my ELDW foundation, i feel like it is a lot. So I switched to only applying the Smashbox CC in the center of my face. The only problem with that is it seems that my face is not a big fan of some ingredient in that. Does anyone have any product recommendations for me?
I'm looking for a good everyday foundation! I have pretty normal skin (not overly oily or dry in any places, really). Medium coverage is good, but I do want it to be pretty long wearing, because I'm a student and I work! I loved the Guerlain Lingerie De Peau foundation, but it really broke me out I would say my favorite foundation is Nars Sheer Glow, but I'm just looking to try something new! Any suggestions?
Here's the first Sneak Peek for the September Ipsy Bag: I actually unsubscribed last month which is a little surprising because I was a fan of the products I received in August but with holiday sets/collections coming soon I've decided that I would rather put my money there. For all of those still subscribed enjoy!
I have recently learned that Hakuhodo has an office in LA. LA is close, but not close enough for me to just go there because I want to (its 6 hours drive from the bay area) Has anyone been there? I've heard that they offer 20% discount too. if anyone is planning on going, may I ask for a favor of a couple brushes (I will pay full price plus shipping)
We all know there are many eyeliner sets available to buy but is there any lip liner set out there. I know there are clear universal lip liners but I personally like colored lip liner and it is not easy to buy a lip liner matching every lipstick. Wouldn't it be fun if brands release lip liner sets as well OR Sephora itself release a draw the line kind of set containing lip liners from all shade families.
I was one of the Lucky BeautyTalker's who was gifted the New line on makeup by Perricone MD from Sephora. And i wanted to share my thought on it. For starters i am a Medium-Tan skintone, and i do have fairly dry skin. I have worn the products for 3 days now and i have a pretty good idea of how they are. Here is a picture of what i received. I was sent an extra No Foundation Foundation instead of the No Foundation Foundation Serum. So i kept the extra in the box. I won't be able to review the serum but i'm sure there will be others posting their reviews. No Foundation Foundation - I received both shades, And the second one is a good match for my skin, The first shade i can work with, I add a drop of the Bronzer and it's also a good color match. This is a runny liquid texture, and it is a sheer coverage. One layer definitely evens out my skin, covers redness, and is not detectable on my skin at all! Unfortunately i have a little hyper pigmentation right now, so i do need 2 layers. And with that second layer it bumps the coverage to medium, and still looks very natural on my skin. I think the 2 big things i don't like is the smell, But it's a personal preference, And it's a little sticky on the skin. I have been setting with a light powder but my nose got a little oily at the end of the day. So today i am trying it the MUFE setting powder.But i do overall like this. If you have relatively good skin with nothing major to cover up, this is a great product. It's so lightweight, and undetectable on the skin! Here is a picture of both foundations swatched, taken outside. (The one on top of Shade 2, Bottom is Shade 1) No Blush Blush - I'm in LOVE with this. It is a beautiful color. I apply this by dotting it on the back of my hand, and take a blush brush to carefully applying it to my cheeks. I can't use my fingers for cream/liquid blushed because i tend to go all over the place. But using a brush works for me. It blends like a dream! No Bronzer Bronzer - As i said already i mix this with the lighter foundation, and i also use this after foundation like i use my regular bronzer. Which is to contour lightly around the face. Like the blush, it blends so beautifully. And i can build it up with a second layer to get more color, and it's still such a natural look! No Concealer Concealer - I LOVE this. It's the perfect shade to really brighten up my eye area. I'm not a huge concealer Guru, I haven't used many for my Under eye area because i don't have dark circles. But i don't think i can go back to not using it! I see myself purchasing this when i run out! I feel like it is a very sheer coverage, so if you need a full coverage concealer, this might not be the one for you. No Lipstick Lipstick - Again, I LOVE this. I feel like i would purchase this when i'm out! I love the color, and it's very hydrating! I use a lot of sheer lipsticks/balms instead on lipstick lately, and i'm just in love. I've also tried patting a little of the blush on my lips and then applying this, and it's GORGEOUS. Here is a picture of all of them, taken outside. Left to Right- Lipstick, Bronzer, Blush, Concealer No Mascara Mascara - I think the wand it pretty neat, but i'm still very unsure how i like this. I think the problem is there is too much product on the wand, I think i need to wipe it off. I need to play around like it more. So if you have any tips on that please share! I don't know if this is going to help anyone, but hopefully the swatches might! Overall i really like the makeup. I think the main problem is the lack of shades. Hopefully Perricone will expand it, but if the color works for you, i think these are great products to try! My top recommendation is for the lipstick, and blush! They are gorgeous!
I've been in love with this shade but they are either limited edition or they don't make it in singles so I was wondering if anyone knew of a dupe. as you can see in the picture (3 to the right), it barely has any color at all. In real life, its literally just some fine peach hued sparse shimmers.. and it looks very pretty on the eyes. (1st to the left on the bottom) this shade stays on the entire day (please note I don't want something that disappears or falls off to my face in the middle of the day)
Some campaigns from Charlotte Tillbury, Rodarte (Nars), Chanel and Dior (pics posted below) have featured pink/red/fuscia eyeshadows for their Fall campaigns. My question to all of you is, what are your makeup application tips for me to try that same trend and interpret for a casual day look? I may even want to wear that to work too. I don't want to look like I have a bruised eye or a puffy eye that has been crying all night. I"d like to be able to take my sunglasses off and look my friends in the eye at lunch and not get funny looks. Just for reference my complexion is pale with subtle yellow undertones but can pull more neutral at times. (3yo3, Chanel B10 or BR20 approx). Does anyone have shade recommendations? Application tips?? Thanks!
I have been haunting the HK section, hoping a few leftovers may turn up (Other than the two that are always there). Look what I found! Already signed up to be notified. Looking forward to seeing this collection, and I hope they have a launch party for Rouge!
I'm under the impression that natural hair brushes work better for powder products and synthetics for liquid. I've been eyeing the RT blush brush? or the one that is shaped like a cone for bronzer application but I know that all RT brushes are made of synthetic hairs. Is my general rule concept mistaken or is it the quality of the brush that matters more?
Have you seen this baby yet? So pretty! Temptalia posted this today. $250.00 U.S. / $295.00 CDN (Limited Edition) "Availability: September 2nd for VIB Rouges, full release on September 9th at Sephora and September 2nd at Make Up For Ever Boutiques." Temptalia
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?
So I purchased two of these last week and just tried them out today. They are very odd to me...like a watercolor for the eye (I think that may be in the official description), very light and transparent but color is buildable. I bought two colors and applied one to each eyelid just using the soft application tip. The color was patchy and it took awhile for it to dry before I could put on a second and then third coat. Plus, these contain a moderate amount glitter (definitely not shimmer) which almost strikes me as odd for a product so transparent. I think using a brush to even out the color would definitely help tremendously but I was doing this as my little girl was in the tub so I didn't have much time! The colors I got are Chartreuse and Ginger Lily. The first swatch pic is without flash, the other with. The top two colors are one coat only and the bottom is three coats. I know these pics are not great but I felt the need to include something. If anyone's tried these, let me know what you think and if you're having success with them and how. Also, any of you MUA's (or anyone else!) even if you haven't used these, if you have suggestions, lay 'em on me. BTW, the pics are without primer and just using the applicator to apply. When I put them on my eyes I used primer and then I also tried them with NYX white shadow base.
Hi dolls, I'm obsessed with the what are you wearing thread on BT , but I find it hard to post a full faced selfie all the time! I noticed a lot of people are lip product junkies like myself on here and thought it would be a good thread to start. I also think it might make people more comfortable with posting a picture of their lips instead of their whole face (I know I don't want to see mines up close and personal all the time). I think a brows of the day , eyes of the day , etc. would be great too for people who aren't as comfortable posting a selfie. You can always post a selfie in this thread though (: Here's whats one my lips today! 1. Bite Beauty Rhubarb lip pencil 2. TF Perfect Lips Lip Liner in perfect spice
