I've always worn eyeliner on my top and bottom lids. Now that I'm 40, I'm thinking of changing things up a bit. I'm wondering if the liner on my bottom lid is too harsh, too much, you know? That being said, if I don't wear liner on my bottom lash line, I feel like my makeup is incomplete and my eyes just don't look right. Normally, I use pencil on my bottom lash line, UD's 24/7 to be exact. I've also tried using Clinique's bottom lash mascara, which I like....but to me, it looks a little "off" without liner to go with it. Should I try lining my bottom lash line with eye shadow instead? I'm thinking that might give me a softer look? What about my waterline? If I don't use liner on my waterline, I feel that I look weird. I've tried pencil, cream, and liquid liner in all different brands. I just want to find a look that will compliment me now that I'm in my 40's. I don't want to wear my eye makeup the way I did in my 20's because it makes me look like I'm trying too hard.....if that makes sense? Anyway.....any advice or tips y'all could send my way would be wonderful!
Hi I'm new here. I'm looking to start using a primer but I've never used that before. My skin is very oily and usually whithin 2-3 hours my foundation stops working. My face will start getting oily again. Or are there any other suggestions to help my makeup last longer and face less oily??
My skin has been really good lately, so when I apply my ELDW foundation, i feel like it is a lot. So I switched to only applying the Smashbox CC in the center of my face. The only problem with that is it seems that my face is not a big fan of some ingredient in that. Does anyone have any product recommendations for me?
Hello ladies, I intend to practice contour thing. =) Can anyone recommend the contour brush which is good for beginner? I am eyeing on Tarte and Urban Decay contour brush. But wonder which one is better?

Hi dolls, I'm obsessed with the what are you wearing thread on BT , but I find it hard to post a full faced selfie all the time! I noticed a lot of people are lip product junkies like myself on here and thought it would be a good thread to start. I also think it might make people more comfortable with posting a picture of their lips instead of their whole face (I know I don't want to see mines up close and personal all the time). I think a brows of the day , eyes of the day , etc. would be great too for people who aren't as comfortable posting a selfie. You can always post a selfie in this thread though (: Here's whats one my lips today! 1. Bite Beauty Rhubarb lip pencil 2. TF Perfect Lips Lip Liner in perfect spice
I am looking for a foundation that is going to feel light weight but give pretty good coverage. I dont really want to see the imperfections on my face and I definitely do not want to break out because my face can be sensitive. I do not want anything that is going to look cakey.. I want something that will give a more natural look. Also my face is a bit oily so I do not want a shiny face so probably more of a matte foundation. Of the 3, nars sheer matte, tarte, and BECCA, which one is best for me?
I'm in search of a chocolate cherry or chocolate/plum colored eyeliner pencil. You know that brownish/red or brownish/purple color?? Anyone have any brand/color recommendations? Can be high-end or drugstore, just as long as I can find the color I'm looking for, I'll be a happy makeup junkie Thanks so much! Here's an example... even though this says black cherry, it looks more chocolate cherry to me, but it could be the lighting. Either way, I'm diggin' it and looking for something very similar
Some of the lip colors they have are so unique! I definitely want to try out the glosses, but I would love to hear an opinion if anyone here has tried any of them! I am definitely eyeing sunshine kisses right now...any similar colors out there?
I see this product isn't on this site (yet?) but was wondering If anyone has tried it? Thoughts? I usually use smashbox photo finish hydrating primer but was wondering about this one since it's new and supposedly offers 24H hydration.
I have colour matched for R106 for foundation. What colour would you suggest for the new YSL Fusion foundation?? I am a 57 year old with dry skin . VIRouge member too!! But I would love a new foundation for fall. Thank you.
Hi I got a Sephora color pallet box available during the holidays. It had lipsticks that pulled out from right Side, Eyeshadows in Middle, and eye creams on left side. I love this but there are some real favorites. I was wondering If anyone knows where to find the information on what the colors are? So I can go buy them at the store.
Hi everyone, I'm looking to use my NARS pure radiant tinted moisturizer again to even out my skin tone, rather than just my concealer and powder. I have combination, sensitive and sometimes acne prone skin ( but it's been clear recently ) I have started using a moisturizer by clinique which seems to be working well and doesn't get too oily for my face. When I used to use my NARS TM with a different moisturizer, my face would get too oily and I would often break out. I'm wondering if it may work better with this moisturizer, or if I could mix a little NARS in with my moisturizer to conceal? I've also heard that NARS tm actually clogs your pores? Does anyone have any advice? Thank you!!
Zadidoll just posted this find from Urban Decay's website and I have to say I'm smitten. $39 and not yet for sale on their website, but I'm sure it will be available soon. Assuming it will also be available on Sephora at some point? The set contains six deluxe minis with three new shades, Ladyflower (bright rose-pink), Crush and Illicit (sheer baby pink) and three bestsellers Gash, Liar and F-Bomb. Also included is a full-size 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Ozone. What do you think?
Hey all! I'm going shopping this labor day weekend to sephora and nordstrom. What are some good makeup recommendations from either store. Or perhaps good beauty deals? Ive been thinking about getting another too faced melted lipstick (i have melted peony) and maybe another too faced la creme (i have nude beach I believe)
Has anyone tried the new IT Brushes from Ulta yet? I took a look at them today out of curiosity. They are soooo soft. The only description my husband can come up with for how they feel is a puppy dog's ears. However it has been my experience that brushes that soft are only good for blending not applying. I'm actually quite happy with my Real Techniques but these brushes are very tempting. Anyone know if they are worth it?
I have never had a problem growing my nails.They come in strong and they grow long. I do however have a problem with painting them. I do them myself and put a clear coat of polish on everyday, but the day after I do them, the color has started to chip. I also try to get them professionally done every now and again. As soon as I get home from having them done I put a clear coat of polish on, again though, by the morning the color has started to chip. I've tried different salons, different brands of polish and different types of clear coats. Nothing works. I've even tried the new schllac nails and after a week or so the color peels off without any soaking. I love to have my nails looking nice but I don't want to ruin my real nails with acrylics. Some one please help!
Hi BTers! I am wondering if anyone has any recommendations on an inexpensive fluffy crease/blending brush similar to the MAC 217. I see a ton of tutorials where people use this brush and it looks amazing, but I'm not sure I want to spend that much on a single brush right now. Does anyone know of any other good ones?? Thanks!!
they have three different rose petal colors and they look like real rose petals the blush in itself is sheer but this is more of a collectors item of someone who really loves blush / makeup.Would be a cute gift to someone.
Finally a member of the red-card club! Love the new MUFE artist shadow palettes; the colors look so good together. And thanks to Lisa at the Lenox Mall (Atlanta) store for being so sweet and helping me with a false-eyelash lesson.
Have you guys seen these?! There are tons of shades and finishes to choose from, and you can build your own palette! I can't wait to try these; I wonder if Sephora will carry all of the shades? There are so many and I'd really like to go in and test a good chunk of them. http://www.sephora.com/artist-shadow-P387670?skuId =1622745
I’m a Canadian makeup artist and I was ready to buy so many eyeshadows from the new Makeup forever Artist shadows at Sephora online. Then I saw that the discount is for U.S customers only. It’s such a good deal too. I’m just so upset by this I’m feeling anti-Makeup forever right now to be honest
I'm planning my fall outfits and I decided that mostly I will wear this cool style. However what kind of makeup do you think I should do? I was thinking something simple like glowing skin and ponytail and maybe a red lip??? I'm just curious what you guys think... Thanks
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!!
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?
