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 2: July 26- August 1: ORANGE!
I already have the Filmstar bronze & glow palette but looking into some of her other products. Does anyone have any experiences they would like to share esp with her Light Wonder Foundation, her blush and the Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder? I'm interested in getting these three things but still on the fence about taking the plunge! Please let me know, many BTers opinions have helped me out on products before Thanks in advance!
I use a spray brush cleanser on my brushes once a week. I have noticed that I need to clean my foundation and concealer brushes more frequently for optimal use. Should I be cleaning all my brushes everyday? I've heard of some people using oils and conditioners and was thinking of just leaving my bushes in a container filled with a mixture of water and shampoo after application while I am at work then removing them when I get home and spritzing them with hair oil (maybe once a week) then air drying them till morning. Is this a good idea? I would still clean them with the brush cleanser once a week. Do you think hair oil should be lightly spritzed after each shampoo/water soak?
So I dragged myself down to the post today to get a new box for a TSB and was suprised to find a little box in my locker. I wasn't aware Formula X was sending me anything because normally they contact you before they send you something. Did anyone else get this?
I have started cleaning my mascara wands using a makeup brush spray cleanser. I started doing this to keep the wand nice and free from clumps. Does this extend the mascara/help keep bacteria from forming in the tube?
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. I remember somewhere in the threads someone posted one with two lipsticks, I thought it was the funniest thing. So as a fun little game, fill in the blanks " You think I wear makeup to impress a guy who can't tell the difference between______and_____?"
Hey Beauties- We have ALOT of threads around here for Tom Ford products. I figured I'd start one thread where we can update each other on items as they come out or we see them available. For all my UK'ers, or people willing to pay for shipping from the UK, Harrods has Softcore and Nude Dip from the Fall collection available right now. Happy Shopping!
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 normally just use my finger to create the line and then brush with my bronzer brush to remove the harsh line. Ive been debating between the mars kabuki brush and the kat von d's new brush.... any advice??
I found this disappointing honestly. I'm super pale and was really excited for it. It's expensive and the color only lasts maybe 3 days with moisturization and minimal shaving. Guide color is perfect but once it's washed off it's too light imo. Anyone else feel the same?
As you may now have seen in the Summer/Fall collections threads, ColourPop Cosmetics is releasing next week their new collection of liquid lipsticks and the colors are to die for and just $6 a piece so I decided to create this new thread so we can share swatches for those interested. I'm pretty sure I'm getting a few. Here are the dominiquerldr swatches from IG And this one from lustrelux Also, if these babies do release next week you can use the Kathleenlights code for $5 off As of right now for this summer season I’m interested in: Spoiler (Highlight to read) Lychee Mars Ouiji Bumble Solow Donut Buds Pacific LycheeMarsOuijiBumbleSolowDonutBudsPacific What do you think?
My eyelashes are VERY straight and thin. Do any of you know of a mascara that can thicken them and keep them curled? They always go flat after a few seconds! I've only ever been able to use CoverGirl's LashBlast Waterproof mascara and want to try something else.
Hi, I'm about to go into high school next year, and never really wear make up. I just realized how expensive makeup is, and didn't really want to purchase both concealer and foundation. I also don't want to be wearing so much because I feel like that would be heavy. I don't really have a lot of acne, just some spots I'd like to cover. So can I just wear concealer on problem spots and not need foundation? Thanks!
I feel like now there are so many different mascaras that sometimes/most of the time I just don't wear one. Right now my combination to get them looking extra sassy is: Dior Diorshow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum Benefit They're Real Mascara Make Up Forever Smoky Extravagant Mascara This combo makes my lashes look like falsies!! Share your favorite mascara/mascara combos!! I'd like to try some out
My skin gives me so much trouble!! I have very oily acne prone skin. I am pretty new to the whole makeup game so it is difficult for me to find my correct shade. Sometimes the foundations I pick make me look like I have a fake spray on tan, others make me look super pink or pale. If I go into Sephora stores can they help me pick my right shade? and does it cost if they do help me? I try going for the matte finish because my skin is so oily, however I love the dewy look but it just makes my skin look wet and runny. I need some serious help!
If I have the Rose Gold highlighter from Becca or even NARS Orgasm illuminator, would I really need Champagne Pop? I feel like they're all a bit similar but I could be wrong. I think Champagne Pop is gorgeous but dishing out another $38 for it makes me sad. LOL.
Ok, so I have horrible skin, I randomly break out, I have combination skin. Sometimes I am really oily, other times I am really dry, most times I am both. I have scars from past acne on my face. I need a makeup and primer and concealer or whatever works to cover all of it. I feel like I have literally tried every single kind of foundation and concealer and primer but some only work for a while then just stop. Does anyone have any recommendations on a primer that will help keep me matte, a concealer that isn't too thick that will cover scars and blemishes and a foundation that will cover the rest. I need complete full coverage. thank you
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?
Anyone else find this super annoying? I have a bunch of foundations in my current collection that I love - both drugstore and some high end that I've tried that all seem to have SPF in it. Now during the day when I'm just going to work or whatever obviously I don't mind, I wear moisturizer with SPF on a daily basis anyways. But my foundations I prefer to wear on a night out (due to coverage, flawless-ness, etc..) always seem to have SPF as well. I'm alright pretty white as it is lol so it's pretty frustrating. I kind of wish they didn't include it in foundation so that if you feel you need it, you could just add a moisturizer underneath.
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. It apparently features 5 matte lipsticks with a maple scent, and a Maple Agave Lip Mask. So jealous, I'd love to get my hands on a maple-scented agave lip mask! Here are the photos that Beautezine posted on her instagram: and swatches:
I was wondering if Opal could work on fair skin (I have slight yellow undertone). I would most likely will be mixing it with moonstone though, but curious if it could work alone as well? I bought Champagne Pop, but I'm on the fence about it. It's not too dark at all, but it just kind of sits on top of my skin, if that makes sense. It doesn't really "melt" into the skin. It's obvious I put some shimmer on my skin. Any feedback would be wonderful!
I'm interested to see what palettes everyone owns! There are a couple I purchased within the past couple of days & I am waiting for them to ship. I currently own: -Kat Von D True Romance in Sinner -Tarte Aqualilies Eye & Cheek Palette -Tarte Romancing the Glow (on the way here) -Wet n' Wild Trio in Walking on Eggshells -Revlon Colorstay Quad in Addicted -Revlon Colorstay Quad in Luscious -Lorac Glogetter Palette -Lorac Mint Edition from Ulta (on the way here) I want: -Anastasia Beverly Hills She Wears it Well -Urban Decay Naked Basics, Naked & Naked 2 -Disney Jasmine Collection Palette -Too Faced Boudoir Eyes Soft & Sexy Eyeshadow Collection I like hearing about what other people have in their makeup collections and I won't get upset or think you are bragging. Feel free to list on! (:
