I'm loving this nail polish from Nails Inc. I used the superfood base coat, Nailkale in Victoria and finished it off with the 45 second top coat.  The color is so rich and easy to apply.

Weekly Color Challenge! Come Join!
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!

Cleaning Brushes
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?

Make up to impress
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_____?"

Genderqueer Makeup
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-

St tropez tanning mousse
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?

Just concealer // no foundation?
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!

Foundation
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!

HELP!!!
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

No makeup. Actually.
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?

SPF causing whitecast in photographs
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.

Would Becca Opal work with fair skin (nc15)? Or mixed in with moonstone?
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!
