Ok, this needs to be done. Starting this thread has been mentioned before, but I'm taking the leap. Below, I'll start a list of commonly mispronounced beauty brands, so please comment if you want to correct me or add another brand. This is for all you perfectionists out there! Anastasia : ah-na-STAH-see-uh Borghese : bore-GAY-zeh Boscia : BOE-sha Bourjois : boor-zjwah Caudalie : COE-dah-lee Chanel : shun-NELL Chantecaille : shahn-tuh-KAI Ciate : see-AH-tay Clinique : clih-NEEK Estee Lauder : EHS-tay LAH-der Givenchy : zjee-VON-shee Guerlain : gare-LAHN Illamasqua : il-lahm-MAS-ka Jouer : zjoo-EH Jurlique : jer-LEEK Koh Gen Do : coh gen doh (hard g) Korres : koh-REHZ Laura Mercier : LOH-rah mehr-see-AE (r is a French nasal r) Lancome : lahn-comb L'Occitane en Provence : LOHX-ee-tahn uhn pro-VAHNCE LORAC : loh-ROCK (??) Marchesa : mar-KAY-zuh NYX : nix Ole Henriksen : OO-lah ON-rick-son Omorovicza : oh-more-oh-VEET-sah Shiseido : shih-SAY-doh Shu Uemura : SHOO oo-eh-MOO-rah Stila : STEE-lah Yves Saint Laurent : EVE sahn loh-RAHN Feel proud if you've been saying them right! We're all pretty much brand snobs here, be it Neutrogena or Tom Ford. Also, the French people are annoying. Most of these brands are French!
Hi all! Can you recommend me a makeup remover that removes everything and leaves nothing behind? I use the Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation, along with lipstick and waterproof eyeliner, and the other day, I rubbed makeup remover all over my face, rinsed it off, and just testing, swiped at my face with toner on a tissue. Nooo, there was still foundation on my face! I do double-cleanse, so I don't think I've been going to sleep with makeup on my face, but I still feel icky about it. In a perfect world, I'd like to remove everything without leaving a greasy feeling on my face. I currently use the Laneige Lip Eye Remover and the Neutrogena Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover, and they've both left makeup on my face with a greasy feeling.
Hi! I would like a recomendation to choose a foundation for my wedding day! It will be taking place in the summer, so I need something to stick on my face but still look like myself. I have combination skin, and a little bit of redness. And im pretty sure it will be hot that day, so I dont want to be oily-shiny. Hope you can help me!! I was thinking about studio skin 15 hour wear foundation, but im not pretty sure! I linked a photo of myself so you can have an idea, I have make up on, and the other one with the pink t-shirt with no makeup at all HEEEELP!
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?
My name is Bombshell and I continue to be an eyeshadow addict enthusiast !! However, five weeks ago I began a quest to actually start using my mountains and mountains of palettes and shadows. Along with some awesome ladies who have joined in I have committed to using the same palette 5 days in a row and posting the results at the end of five days. Those with single shadows are welcome to join in as well! If you are interested in the original rules & lists posted they can be found in off topic, (take the challenge: palette parade). the gist of it is make a list, plan to show all your shadows love for extended period of time (5days), if you hate it first day move on. I am also planning to add weeks of singles by brand (Stila week, UD week, Nars week). I think instead of posting and editing lists it would be easier to report what we plan to use at the beginning of the week and the report the results at the end. We meet here at the end of the week to discuss what we wore for the week, how it worked for us and most importantly to share pictures and advice! Anyone can join as we all started at different times and have different numbers of palettes, and will finish at different times. I am looking at 38 (?) more weeks if I don't buy one more palette! Xoxo I look forward to more fun parading with all you girls! Palette Parade Princesses: CalamityJane85, Nikki, LadyMeag, Beethousand, AmberAngeline, MaFan, nurseCupcake, Carolang, Jenblush, Malday, Sparlekai, GHKim, IttyxBittyxMe, Katie241, SirenPrincess, Manniface.
I mentioned the other day in the palette parade thread that it would be cool if someone started a thread with a picture of a cool eye look and we all tried our hands at it. So CalamityJane (the bully) told me to start it. My immediate thought was "But I wanted someone else to do it!!" Then I decided I was being a whiny little b*tch and should get to it. So without further ado, here's the first Eyeshadow Inspiration! I had been wanting to try a green/bronze eye look for awhile and thought this one looked fun. Here is my not-very-good attempt at it: As always, lighting was a bit of an issue (why won't my blush ever show up?!?), but even though the colors aren't captured perfectly you can still kind of see them. Anyone else want to try? Feel free to substitute colors and change it up (maybe using whatever your palette-of-the-week is?). I love seeing what people here come up with!
There was someone who was going to do a foils/small sample TSB. I do not believe that person is still going to do it. If they are, I apologize and will not do one. I have been in two boxes and loved it but I have never started one. If anyone is still interested, I am willing to try to start one. We can use the same rules from the other TSB. Please let me know if anyone is interested. Also we need to decide if we want to do this with a small flat rate box (I believe shipping is around $6.00) or a medium flat rate box (I believe shipping is around 13.00). If you are going to participate, please be prepared for the shipping costs! This box is open for US shipping only. Shipping becomes more expensive for Canada. Once we decide if we want to do a small or medium box I will post pics of what I will start the box out with. If at that time someone decides they don't like what I am starting the box out with just let me know. I want this to be fun for all. Once I get the box back I will go through it & give the leftover items to the local youth group who works with the homeless shelters in Fredericksburg VA.

Hey everyone! The Balm is on Haute Look today. I was waiting with bated breath for the little notice it was live and immediately headed over there and got an item or two. The selection is nice- eye shadows, lipsticks, conceal ours. On my quest for copper shadows, I ended up finding 1 there that may work! happy makeup shopping!
I just wanted to give you all a heads up if you have really sensitive eyes like I do. I'm getting a weird reaction to this remover. When I wake up the next morning, my eyes are all gunky and they hurt. I mean, really hurt. I switched back to my Neutrogena Oil Free Makeup Remover, and it works well and doesn't affect my eyes. And it's cheap to boot! http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?k eyword=makeup%20forever%20makeup%20remover&skuId=9 ...
So I know a lot of you ladies wear glasses and I just thought maybe we could share our framed faces and pass along tips for wearing makeup with wearing glasses! I'll go first, I had to really dig through my phone for some pictures of me wearing my frames but here are a couple! *Note: I am incapable of taking a "serious" picture while wearing glasses My makeup tip is to wear a bright lipstick to draw attention away from my giant glasses haha. Not a very good tip, but this thread is to discover new ones! Edit: I actually have two pairs of glasses but these ones need prescription lenses still
I'm so sad, I just returned 2 things today like right AFTER I bought them in the store (yes, TODAY), I can't take this back now. Maybe I put it on too heavy, after all I don't have an eyebrow brush yet. Had to use an angled eyeliner until my Anastasia one comes because it's sold out here.
I was wondering what I could do to make my full coverage face foundation not look so caked onto my face. I wan't it to cover all of my redness in my skin but I don't want it to look like I'm a whole new person with it on then I do with it off.
So, I have always struggled with doing any kind of eye make up and tonight I was watching some tutorials and I realized that I have no idea what "approach" to take with eye make up because I have silly half white/half asian eyes that are very confused about their identity. I would say that I have a hooded eye, as you can see in picture 1...but when I open my eye more (picture two, although it is not the best picture of this), I actually also have a fairly well defined crease. So...how do I apply eye make up to my crazy eyes? Is there a name for this shape to look up tutorials? I feel like whenever I start applying anything other than a neutral wash, things start to fall apart because my eyes crease in 2 places. I think because of that, I have trouble blending/applying colors, so any and all tips you guys have would be really appreciated!!
Eleven new WG brushes coming to Beautylish! The Face Set: $265, available in March And the Eye Set: $148, available in April Whyyyy...I totally can not afford these right now, but I am certain that I will buy at least a few individual brushes!
I'm kind of stealing the eyeshadow inspiration board idea but focusing on colorful eyeliner. I was inspired by the UD 24/7 Glide-On pencil conversation. I think there are some people (including myself) who are just starting to, or would like to, branch out with colorful eyeliners such as blues, purples, or greens but are not exactly sure how to do that. Maybe some of you with more experience with colorful eyeliners would like to share ideas or even photos of how you wear them. For example, do you wear them just on the lower lashline for a pop of color or do you pair it with neutral makeup? ( I apologize if there's already a board like this. Feel free to post the link if there is )
Maybe I was getting my hopes up, but Sephora has been doing some promoting for the movie "Divergent" and I got excited because I thought they would be selling a limited edition Divergent line of makeup. Anyone know anything about this? **fingers crossed**
Good morning all!!!!! I think I found a new urban decay palette!!!!! Of course it's not confirmed, urban decay is denying it of course but the image I'm about to show was found on Reddit, and I found it on the blog zadidoll. So without further ado here it is!!!!!!
For whatever reason I'm just not able to tell the difference. For those who have tried both which do you find to be the better performer? I've tried UD, Skindinavia, and Ben Nye Final Seal and found Ben Nye to be the best. However, an artist told me it's not meant for everyday use so I'm trying to move on. I picked up the KvD when it finally restocked last month, but I have a short memory and don't know if it's any better than the UD version. Thoughts?
Of course there is no right or wrong answer but I thought it would be interesting to see how my fellow BT'ers handle their makeup routine. The MUA at Sephora did my eyes first then applied foundation, concealer, blush and lastly lipstick. The routine. I always followed is to do my face first (foundation, concealer. and powder if necessary) then onto my eyes, cheeks and lastly lips. What is your routine?
Hello pretty ladies, Back with another question to see what all you wonderful minds have to suggest. I really like using gel liners because i find it gives me the most natural look - but no matter how I apply it, it smudges all under my eye and on the corners despite the fact not using much If I tightline my eyes with a gel liner it's a no no and smudges within MINUTES!! I have oily lids so things easily move around - with my stila liquid liner it stay puts all day but sometimes I find it is just a bit too much for an everyday thing. I've tried gel liners from tarte, bobbi brown, smash box and god knows what and none of them worked - I've been using a Korean brand which has proven to have better "smudge proof" quality. I still want to know more options. I know probably a pencil option may be good - so any suggestions? Stila? Urban Decay? How do I get my gel liners not to travel down to my lower lid and smudge all over my under eye area and the corners of my eyes!!! It's driving me nuts.
Can you help me add some color? The pic here is how I typically wear my makeup- I usually wear grey or brown. Naked 2 is my go-to palette, but amusingly enough I'm not wearing it in this pic. In this pic I am wearing Urban Decay Foxy (base) Sephora Collection Berlin Underground (matte grey) Urban Decay Mushroom (grey shimmer) MAC Haux (matte brownish rose) If you added color to my look, what color? How would you do it?
This foundation was recommended to me so I'd like to try it. My skin is fair with pink undertones. I don't normally wear foundation but would like to buy some for special occasions. On a day to day basis I've been wearing Stila's color correcting creme in light. It's hard to pick a foundation color online, and I thought Mont Blanc would be the right one for me. This has been out of stock for a while, so instead I bought Urban Decay's Naked Skin Ultra Definition liquid makeup. I liked how it felt, but the 3.5 color I chose was too dark for me, making my face a totally different color than my neck. I went to Sephora today (I normally shop online) and returned that. I am concerned that the .5 color would be too light. The rep at Sephora didn't seem well versed in this Nars foundation and recommended that I try Gobi, which according to the description is light with yellow undertones. She recommended against Mont Blanc (which they didn't have anyway, not even as a sample on the floor) because I "already have pink undertones and that would make me too pink." They were out of Gobi too, but she gave me a sample to try at home. A few questions. Was her advice about color correct? If not, any suggestions on a color to try? I will try the sample soon and see how it wears, of course, but have my doubts. Maybe I don't understand how these undertones work? Also, when I looked at the Nars site, it doesn't even list Mont Blanc as an option any more. I wonder if it's being discontinued?
Hi, I thought it would be interesting to fore-lay your experiences with make-up, starting with adolescence and even childhood. This can also help for parents whose children want to get into make-up and figure out how much is too much or what's good for them before going to the Guerlain/Givenchy/Dior gondolas in Sephora. I'll start. Name: Jenn Age: 22 First make-up product: Bonne Bell Lip Smackers Flip Gloss Age of first Sephora visit: 12 or 13. What's funny was I got mad at my dad for not letting me go to Stoneridge (Pleasanton, CA) because I wanted to go to a Sephora and see what was cool about it. My dad then brought me to ValleyFair (Santa Clara) instead because he knew the area better than Pleasanton. And yes, there was a very big Sephora and I still believe Valley Fair trumps Stoneridge. Your full make-up biography: Started using make-up in 6th grade because of school pictures, which was terrible because I didn't know how to use foundation! I just caked it all on my face! HAHA. Then went to Sephora in 7th grade, didn't buy anything my first time, but when I went with my friends, I think I brought a Cargo eyeshadow in green. Back then I used more drugstore than prestige. 9th grade, I think I started phasing out the drugstore and by college... BYE BYE DRUGSTORE! Then I started using mostly Guerlain by sophomore year, except my make-up bag got stolen by United, which had MOST of my Mac products. BOOO! My advice: Skin is more important, once you wear make-up all the time, it becomes obvious when you don't wear make-up, so I don't use it as much.
Hey ladies, I was called a brand snob yesterday. I can't help that I like pretty things like gold packaging! I don't know, I think the gold and luxury beauty products look so pretty on your vanity, but of course I buy drugstore too (Milani, revlon, ect). I was really offended by this because I buy all types of makeup from different places and it was my MOM that called me a brand snob. Have you ever been called that before? I've had this issue with my mom before with other things too. I don't know I spend my own money on this stuff and I like to treat myself (and I actually use it) so I don't know why she has a problem with how I spend my money.
