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!

Tom Ford Updates
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!

What is your favorite brush for highlighting?
Particularly with powder highlighters? I'm wondering if I should try sephora's brand fan brush, but the reviews are a bit mixed, and someone said the brush fell apart and lost it's shape after washing. I'm open to all answers and suggestion. (if you use liquid highlighter, feel free to share your favorite method for applying as well)

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-

Bite Beauty Maple Collection? (Canada exclusive)
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!

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.

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_____?"

New Foundation - which do you recommend?
I am trying to change my routine to include a foundation that is natural looking (light coverage, except areas with discoloration).  I have tried the following three because they are a color match for my skin (SO hard to find in most foundation lines).   They are...  Cover Fx Drops, Urban Decay Naked foundation and YSL's Touche Eclat.   Do you prefer any of these foundations?  Why?  I tried them all at the store and they all seemed nice.  I would love to hear your thoughts!  Thank you!!!!

anastasia dip brow pomade question
I like my brows more on the thin side and I usually use a Maybelline pencil to define them and fill in sparse areas. I'm dying to try the Anastasia pomade lately but I'm worried it's mostly for thicker looking brows? Need opinions from those who have tried it please.

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?

Foundation similar to MUFE HD
I never find foundations that work with my combination/acne prone skin, however MUFE HD has made me look halfway decent these last two years. I have read so many reviews that the new formula does not cover imperfections/redness or last all day which is necessary for me (often at school or work 8 plus hours a day). Is there another foundation that is similar to MUFE HD in that it covers imperfections, is long wearing, and does not look cakey??? My last bottle of foundation is running low and I am getting very nervous.

Date Makeup
I don't know about you ladies, but I rarely wear makeup on dates. Maybe just mascara (Guerlain Maxi Lash sample). I don't want foundation or lipstick rubbing off... or heck, even sweating off sometimes.  What would you guys wear for a date? My dates are usually brunch, movie and dinner.  (If you're wondering what I do instead, I usually get a sheet mask and prep my skin the day before or day of.)

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.

Does anyone have experience with Rituel de Fille?
I've just recently found out this brand was a thing, and I am really interested in them. But, while I am a sucker for witchy themed makeup (shocking right?) this brand is pretty steeply priced, so I'm afraid of shelling out for something that might end up being a dust catcher. I didn't find many of the reviews for them, though I tend to not really like reviews unless I'm at least passingly familiar with the reviewer anyway.   I signed up for their newsletter and they sent me a nice coupon ($10 off $50+ if memory serves) so I will probably end up going for it but I would love to hear what BT has to say about them!   (They sure know how to grab attention though don't they?)

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!
