This is so odd. I went to track the package that is due to be delivered today and noticed that the Naked3 palette is showing on my order page as permanently out of stock. I don't believe it for a second...there's no way UD made such a limited run after the success of Naked and Naked2.
I have a couple of work holiday parties to go to and would love to try something new and dressed up while remaining professional. Does anyone have any ideas? I've done the pale eye with heavy winged liner and red lip a couple of times and want to switch it up (although I do love a red lip for the holidays!)
Hello all! I was just wondering what everyone's favorite part of their morning beauty routine is just for fun!! Whether it's playing around with all your different eyeshadow colors, putting on your blush for some rosy cheeks, swiping on your favorite lipstick, making your hair look flawless, or even that last spray of perfume. Personally, I just love picking out what lipstick/lipgloss combo I'm going to finish off my look with. I am a lipstick girl all the way!! What's your favorite??
I always wondered if it was necessary to wash face at night if all I put on is BB or CC cream. I always (try) to wash makeup at night but is BB cream makeup when it has all the other stuff in it to make it a 5-in-one or whatever? Advice? How about other types of creams if you don't wear makeup that day?
Over summer, I had my Color IQ done at Sephora and was matched to 1y06. This suggests that I have yellow undertones, six shades deep. I purchased a recommended foundation MUFE HD Mat Velvet Foundation in 140 (light-medium with yellow undertones). I use bb cream daily and save foundation for special events. I used some on my nose & chin today but I looked quite yellow. Especially since I had used it on my chin and it didn't match my neck (which is lighter & seems neutral). I wonder if it's because I was darker/tan in summer, but I blush pink (not coral at all). So... Am I warm, neutral, or cool? I'm thinking of returning my foundation for 130 or 135 which are more neutral/beige undertones. Any thoughts? It seems like many people assume east Asians to be all warm (since many of us are yellow). I would love your thoughts on finding the right foundation!
So I'm just starting out with makeup and don't have much of anything or can afford anything expensive (well sort of saving up with a job and all) and I'm really fond of the "No Makeup Look." I honestly don't know where to start or buy. I have some things that I hear are really good and light but not too sheer to cover up my blemishes. Here are things about my skin: I have an olive/ light tan skin tone (sand in stay-matte clinique, NC42 in Mac) I have combo oily skin but my nose gets so oily that makeup comes off in an hour. I have dark spots and acne around most of my jawline that I really want to get covered up. I was thinking of buying Tarte's BB primer or Benefits Oxygen Wow along with the naked basics but I'm afraid I don't have any primers that would work for me. I have the bare minerals primer along with the porefessional (which I love for minimizing pores) but those just dont seem to work with my skin. I'm not sure about a blush either. I also want to control the oil that swipes my makeup away in an hour (seriously most makeup comes off in an hour for me.) I'm just hoping to hear some suggestions or cheaper alternatives or maybe some of the products you go for during a "natural look" day.
With the VS Fashion Show going on tonight, I though it'd be appropriate to talk about bronzers (Clockwise starting with the bronzer with the pan peeking through.) - MAC Pro Long Wear Bronzing Powder in Nude on Board: Quite possibly my favorite product from MAC, this is used to warm up my complexion. I love how this has a subtle golden sheen and, like the name says, long wearing. Another plus is that it doesn't oxidize throughout the day. -Guerlain Terracotta Four Seasons Bronzer in 00 Nude: I can't talk about bronzers and not include Guerlain, as they're practically the pioneers of best bronzers. This one in particular is great for travel as the top left quadrant can be used as an all-over powder, the two opposing quadrants as bronzer, and the bottom right quadrant as a blush. -Dolce and Gabbana blush in Tan: A total misnomer if you ask me, as I can't see anyone wearing this as a blush. It's a cool-toned, matte taupe that is perfect for chiseling cheekbones or for defining the crease, as it truly mimics what a shadow should look. -Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder in Medium: Like the D&G, I strictly use this for contouring my cheekbones, due to it's taupey nature. This isn't quite as pigmented (nor as soft) as the D&G, thus, making it difficult to over-apply. Both are incredible contouring powders, and I love them both equally. -Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base: I finally broke down and purchased one after having used a new tester my SA kindly provided me with; it was always sold out at my counter. This is very lightweight and silicone-y in nature, so it can work over both liquid and powdered foundations. It's very difficult to go overboard with this product as it provides a soft warmth to the face. What products do you turn to for achieving that bronzed look?
So, just wondering if there's a trick to make it so I'm not all washed out in pictures. I'm not talking about the white face flash-back you get from SPF. I mean my blush and eye shadow never seems to show up in pictures. I promise I'm wearing blush and eyeshadow in this picture! I've seen a lot of you girls with gorgeous makeup in pictures, so I know it's possible! Anyone have any advice? I'm not using a flash or anything.
I haven't been able to get on BT as much, so forgive me if this was already posted. I was at the Chanel counter this weekend picking up some Perfection Lumiere and Vitalumiere Aqua, and an SA I know there told me about their newest edition coming in February of 2014... Perfection Lumiere Velvet While Mat Lumiere was supposed to be discontinue with the Pro Lumiere, it has taken longer to phase out. But come February it will offcially be replaced by Perfection Lumiere Velvet which will be similar technology to the current Perfection Lumiere but with a matter finish. Just thought I would pass the news along! I know I have an issue where I have to try every foundation known to man, so I def can't wait to try this one out and see how I like it
Hi Loves, So I had purchases the Too Face Beauty Bloggers set, and I fell in love with the Chocolate soleil bronzer; what a great contour shade! I love it so much that I bought a full size over the weekend. The thing is...the texutre of the full size is different than the smaller deluxe sample in the beauty blogger set. The full size is much more finly milled...like I press my brush to it and whoosh! The smaller size was more packed down, and I feel it lent to a more even appication of color. Does anyone else have the full size chocolate soleil? Is yours as finally milled as mine?
I mainly used pressed eyeshadows, and have not had much luck with the brushes I have tried (wish I had done more research on the Real Techniques eye brushes before I bought them instead of blindly expecting them to fare as well as their regular brushes do) so I'm turning to you lovely ladies for guidance: are there affordable (I'm talking like under $10/15 per brush or something) eyeshadow brushes out there that can actually pick up product from the pan and deposit it onto eyelids without losing half the product in the bristles themselves? Or blending brushes that actually blend instead of wiping all the eyeshadow away? If you don't have one under that budget but still would like to share your love for some more expensive eyeshadow brushes, feel free to do so!
I am being seduced by the cheek and bronzer brushes by Tom Ford, but each is so bleepin' expensive I'm not sure I could justify the price. Then again, I'm looking for the dreamiest, softest blush brush and all-over face powder brush. Are these what I'm looking for? If not, which one(s) do you prefer?
The glam room has finally updated, pretty fast considering it usually take around the 12th. Im so excited in trying the mirabella brush, nyx lipstick (never tried it), and be a bombshell. Love to know what you guys are gettings!
So before Thanksgiving, I ordered some stuff from Ulta, and it JUST got here. Seems like so long ago! Ha. Anyway, this order included my first two Butter London colors: HRH Scouce Are all the colors this amazing? Wholly Cow...!!
Use Verve on the inner corner of eye as well as brow bone. Then take pistol and cover lid. using black out on the outer corner of eye, under the lash line and up into the crease, blend up and out. Use urban decay 24/7 glide on pencil in zero above lash line and smudge into lash line.

Anyone else get uber starstruck when someone you admire comments on your social media posts? Ahhhh I about dies this morning when valerievixenart commented on the picture of her facechart that I tried to recreate. I hope one day I can be as skilled as this woman!
Has anyone received theirs yet? I just took a peek at my glam room (though I always tell myself not to) and I am pretty pleased with my goodies! The Pop eyeshadow trio is so pretty, I hope I get the natural palette. We always get Be a Bombshell items, which I don't mind. I've never owned an "all over" stick so I'm excited to get it. Nail polish again, which is okay for me. I'm not a big nail person. And I own and love a lot of NYX lip products and Ardell lashes so I am very happy about those! What's in your bag and what do you think of your items? Is this month's bag worth the ten dollars for you?
One of my biggest problems, beauty wise, has always been makeup transfer. My makeup rubs off everywhere! It has turned me into the most awful hugger because I fear the embarrassment of getting my makeup all over somebody's clothing lol I also had a very embarrassing experience recently and got makeup on a guy's nose from kissing and rubbing noses. He didn't seem to mind, but still totally embarrassing for me. Any suggestions on how to prevent this from happening?
I have a really prominent undereye area when I smile. It is all I can see in the attached photo. How do I correct this? Or am I stuck? Also, good undereye serums, because I have lines when I smile, too. Secondly, what is the best way to do my eyemakeup with these glasses? I really don't actually know much about what I'm doing or what looks good on my when it comes to makeup, so I kind of buy and try and hope for the best. Any help you can provide would be appreciated.
