A question for andyhtrieu, immichaeld and any other guys lurking on BT
I love a guy who knows his skincare and makeup, and you guys certainly know your stuff!  I'm really curious to know - what got you so interested?  Were you encouraged by anyone or did you discover it all yourselves?  Do people notice when you wear makeup?  Do you get hassled about it?  Do you get positive comments?   I think it's great that you are here.  I'd love to know how you got here, if you don't mind my asking.  Girls are marketed to from practically infancy about beauty products - guys not so much!  So, how did it all start for you guys?

Share your tips for removing eye makeup!
I swear, I tried a million eye make up removers and techniques, and I usually wear non-waterproof mascara because they are easier to remove, but I feel like I always have to tug the delicate skin around my eyes, and I know it's not good! I started noticing fine lines under my eyes, so I want to be more careful now! What are your tips? I usually soak to cotton pads with Bioderma, and leave them on my closed eyelids for 10-15 seconds, and then wipe, but I still wake up with black rings around my eyes. HELP!!

Bite Beauty Event
Last Friday I had the opportunity to go to the Bite Beauty event at my local Sephora (Les Ailes (Ste-Catherine), Montréal) and had the opportunity to create my own bespoke lipstick shade.    It was definitely my favourite Sephora event to date!   They transformed a corner of the store into a mix between a candy shop and a chemistry lab, and I was given the occasion to sit down with the super lovely and helpful Sarah from Bite to create the lipstick I always wish existed!  Not only did I get to create the exact shade I wanted, I was also able to choose the finish, and essential oil scent.     I know they do the same thing at their lab in NYC.. Has anyone else had the opportunity to create their own Bite lipstick either at the lab or at an event in their store? I'd love to see the shades you created!

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!

Eff! I have a feeling the $50 Louboutin red nail polish will end up at my house. I don't hoard cheapie polishes so it's okay to splurge on a luxury beauty product, right?     Sephora will be getting it around August 6th if I remember correctly. http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?p roductId=P388556&om_mmc=oth-tum-20140723-Louboutin

Everybody loves a Winged liner, but achieving the look can be somewhat challenging. The perfect product for beginners is Benefits They're Real liner, you are able to get a smooth line every Time. Another favorite of mine is Kat Von D Tattoo liner, the fine tip brush applicator creates fine precise line the color payoff with waterproof setting is an added bonus.  What are your Favorite eyeliners?

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?

Colored contacts - learn from my mistake!
Alright ladies and gentlemen, I know this subject has come up on here several times. I used to wear green contacts (prescribed by my eye doctor) for fun. Recently, I found a website where you can order them without a prescription. I bought a bunch of fun new colors, including some of those large circle ones.    I remember reading the cautions on here about the dangers of using improperly fitted contacts but I figured I'd be fine (last time I'll not listen to BT'ers! lol). My thought was that tons of other people use them and don't have issues.    I wore them for about 5 hours on Saturday. Sunday, I woke up with weird blurred vision in one eye, and by Monday I was in a lot of pain. After spending time at my optometrist (and receiving a long lecture) I am being treated for a corneal abrasion caused by the poorly fitted contacts.    Today, I can't even begin to explain how badly my eye hurts. I couldn't sleep last night because every time my eye twitched the pain woke me up.      Moral of the story, don't be dumb like me. I just figured I'd try to caution other people, especially with Halloween and whatnot coming up to be careful, because how I feel right now is absolutely not worth the risk.    I'm just hoping I won't end up like pirate kitty. Although I'd rather have one eye at this point than the pain.

A makeup routine suitable for acne prone skin?
I am debating on switching my makeup routine if there is makeup more suitable for my skin type.   Throughout the day I get an oily t-zone, and I have acne prone skin (majority of it on my chin and around my mouth area).    I prime with Cover FX mattifying primer (doesn't seem to do its justice for me), I use Kat Von D lock-it tattoo foundation, which I LOVE the coverage with that due to my acne and lots of hyper-pigmentation. I then use **bleep** full cover concealer to cover any imperfections, I just use a revlon pressed powder, rimmel bronzer and revlon blush. I then use Urban Decays de-slick setting spray.   Could anyone make an suggestions on products I need to swap out, or entirely new makeup routine that is more suitable for acne.   Thank you!

Deluxe and Foil Samples Traveling Box!
I posted a previous post about starting a traveling box with samples and deluxe samples and a few ladies were interested in doing one!  This is the 1st traveling box I am apart of and of course the 1st that I am starting.   So, we need to decide if we are going to do a medium or small flat rate box.     RULES  No used items.  No open items  DO NOT take more than you put in.  Let's keep this fun and fair  DO NOT take multiples of the same sample  PLEASE try not to keep the box more than 3 days  Make sure to send your address to the person listed above you  Once you send the box off, post the tracking number in this thread  ALL unused items allowed (well maybe not nail polishes if it will make the shipping costs go up)  Post a pic of what you take out, what you put in and what is left in the box before you send it off   We are going to have fun and try to keep this going as long as we can!   If you are interested in being in the box, I have a few spots left so post a pic of what samples you have in this thread to be added.   To start off, we are only going to have 10 people! 1. CuriousCannibal 2. MegEm 3.MLLECC 4. tessie84 5. Kittichick 6. NicoleFrat 7. NightKnight 8. Sweetxteeth 9. Nishcakes  10. Kariyava

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

This is also helpful for anyone with yellow or olive undertones.

I always have to mix two to three shades to get a decent match. I don't like using a color correcting mixing medium, it seems to alters the foundation formula.   Sorry, had to remove link, trying to be as specific as possible to direct you to the article.

Need Suggestions for Nude, Opaque Lipgloss (Non-Tingling)
Hi All, I have these two mini lipglosses from Tarte's 2013 Holiday Clutch the Spirit set. One is called "Laugh" and the other is called "Spirit."  They are 2 of 8 mini lipglosses that came in the set and both are a light nude (one more pinky than the other), OPAQUE, lipglosses. They are minty, but aren't tingly. I absolutely love them, but they are the size of my pinky finger and I'm running out of them.    Unfortunately it doesn't look like Tarte makes these in full size.    Can anyone give me some recommendations for similar glosses?  - Beige nude sort of color - Opaque, not sheer - Preferably not tingly and not plumping (I have big lips and don't want them any bigger!) - Can be scented, but I don't really care for scent   I have Laura Mercier's lip glace in Bare Baby which kind of fits the bill, but it's not very long lasting...anyone has any good suggestions for me? Thank you!!

BECCA shimmering skin perfector in champagne gold
I was looking on the Ulta website and saw a new BECCA pressed powder shimmering skin perfector in champagne gold. I wondered if anyone has seen swatches of this. I already have Moonstone, Opal and Rose Gold so the question is do I need it?? LOL...of course. But I was really wondering how different it is from Moonstone. I'm not sure how to link a picture but you can find it on Ulta or the BECCA website. It says it's limited edition (ha ha, so was rose gold) and it has the same stamping on it as the holiday rose gold had on it.
