Hi. I have light skin, blue eyes, and blonde hair. I am looking for blush and lipstick colors. I just got a pink blush from MAC and I feel it's too dark. I love the urban decay eyeshadows, I just got the smokey palette and I have the first one as well. So, maybe blush and lipstick that goes with those. Thank you.
Hi all! So.... I'm just beginning to dabble in the world of eye makeup (other than mascara and some minimal eyeliner). I have large, dark blue eyes. Do any of you have suggestions on what products/application techniques to use to enhance my eyes? Also, I have fair skin and dark blonde/light brown hair (I don't know if it makes a difference, just thought I'd mention it).
I need a good foundation that has full coverage in every way possible. I want the look of air brushed, without actually using an air brush. So basically an all around foundation that covers all flaws for a an air brushed look finish. If it needs to be a foundation plus a powder to get that look I would love to know! Thanks!
So, I have a few beautiful highlighters (ColourPop Avalon and Most Necessary, as well as Nars South Beach) that are a bit too shimmery, for personal preference, as highlighters, but since they're so pretty, I've been wanting to use them as eyeshadows. However, they seem to crease like crazy regardless of what I've tried so far -- Too Faced eyeshadow primer, matte eyeshadow, setting powder, and a combo of all three with the primer first, a matte eyeshadow all over, and then setting powder on top of the shimmery highlight/eyeshadow. It may not be made to be as these are seem like more emollient highlighters. However, before I give up and pitch them, I figured I'd should check here first to see if anyone has suggestions.
So basically every foundation I have used causes breakouts or emphasizes dry patches. I have dry, very fair, acne prone skin, is there a moisturizing foundation that comes in a light enough shade? I love the dewy look but everything I've tried looks cakey and dry on me even if I exfoliate,moisturize, and prime beforehand. Any help would be appreciated!
Normally, I wear a pretty full coverage foundation day to day at work. But for my days off, I want something lighter that doesn't look like I'm wearing anything, just acts like a nice base for my skin and evens things out slightly. I would like something long wearing, even slightly matte because I noticed some oiliness and slipping throughout the day. I do have good skin, so I just want something to lay down before I put on concealer to cover my under eyes, fill in my brows, add some mascara and then I'm good to go! My skin tone is also very light, I use the lightest color in the Naked Skin foundation (0.5 I think) or Siberia in Nars Sheer Glow. Thank you!
Hello, I want to purchase the tarte powder foundation but i'm a little lost on which color to get. I am a mac NC 30-35 currently, I also used bare minerals original foundation in golden medium. Thanks!
Hi everyone! I'm NC40 and kinda new to highlighters. I bought Becca's champagne pop and love it. Any recommendations for medium skintone? I prefer sublt non glittery (nothing more than becca). Il love the LM matte radiance... but thats too white for me. Its a beautiful highlight on the cheek though. What are your favouriteS?
What's your favorite nail polish and why? Do you have a brand that you absolutely adore? My favorites come down to ease of application because I'm not exactly patient nor do I have a particularly steady hand. So far, my favorite brands are Sparitual, 100% Pure, and Julep.
I am looking for a higher end concealer that doesn't crease, looks natural and lasts on oily skin. I have tried a lot of drugstore concealers, and I find that they are too harsh for my sensitive skin and crease way too much.
For years I have been trying different skin makeup products both drugstore and high end foundations, concealers , moisturizers and powders all claiming to keep oily skin matte and while some did just that it was always at the cost of looking cakey. My skin only needs light coverage products to cover up redness, blemishes and dark circles around my eyes ( and something that keeps my oily t zone mattified). However I have yet to encounter any natural, light coverage products for oily skin that do just this. It seems that the foundations are either too much coverage(don't look natural at all!!), the concealers crease too much and look too cakey under my eyes(and feel dry) or they just drip off my tzone all together(it gets gross).Does anyone else experience this with makeup products and has anyone found any products that work on oily skin but look natural?
Quick question: my mom wanted a eye shadow palette focusing in the brown family. I was torn between the Kat Von D Shade and Light Contour Palette and Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics. Which palette would people recommend? Thanks!
hi I'm interested in a nice dewy glow finish for my dry skin. Can anyone suggest any drug store or Sephora makeup setting sprays that will make my makeup last with giving me the dewy glow as well.? I would appreciate suggestions. Looking for an affordable spray that will do the job. Thanks.
I recently tried the halo powder and am in love with the beautiful glowing finishing. The problem is that I can't seem to find a color match in smashbox . My skin is light/medium olive and the light/med powder was quite dark and a bit orange on my skin after it oxidized. The light/neutral powder looked quite pale. The Bare minerals in medium beige is a great color match but not the glowing finish of halo. I love how the halo glows without any trace of glitter or sparkle.
I believe I used too tacky a base for my Too Faced Natural Matte. The eyeshadows seem super powdery and there is a lot of fallout. Would the Neutral Matte be any better- even though some of the shadows are the same and overlap but are the shimmery shades better or do they have the same amount of fallout? I am thinking about exchanging the Matte palette but then again perhaps I need a better primer. I used too tacky a primer which I already know was my mistake and the eyeshadow clumped in places and seemed patchy. Who loves this palette and how do you prefer to use it? Do you find the fallout a turn off?? Thanks <3
Hi, I just recently purchased the Sephora Rouge Infusion Lip Ink in # 10 Red Essence and I LOVE it!!! I was wondering if any of you guys know a good lip liner that will pair well with this product to make last a little longer. Thank you in advanced to every suggestions! -Maria
Like most girls I've been wearing makeup since jr. highish age and have always struggled finding the correct shade. I'm also very low maintenance and prefer super simple, easy to do makeup, but I've been dealing with severe adult acne and have started using makeup more and more to help cover up and draw attention away from my problem areas. I went to a Sephora store and was color matched as 1R05. I bought the bareMinerals matte foundation in fair and correcting concealer in light 1, which both match my skin wonderfully. I'm wanting to find blush and/or bronzer to do some simple contouring, but am totally lost as to how to choose the correct shade. Please help! Thank you.
