Good morning (or afternoon) BT! You migh remember my post from yesterday about a new round of challenges. This is just for fun, and I will be posting a new theme every week. Feel free to join in whenever! To quote my post: "I'm not sure how many of you remember the makeup challenge posts, but I want to start some new ones for October! With Halloween just around the corner (yes, a month is just around to corner to me) I thought this would be a good way to practice any potential makeup/costume ideas. I'd like to post a new theme every week, but there are no deadlines so feel free to join in whenever and show off your costume makeup skills" With a little inspiration from the recent MAC collection, this week's theme will be Rocky Horror Picture Show ! Recreate a look from your favorite character or create your own RHPS inspired look. I'm looking forward to what you guys post and will be doing a look of my own Have fun! Here is some face chart inspiration also:
Just got my Vice 3 yesterday in my Ulta haul, and I need some help putting colors together. I can also take combination suggestions using other palettes-- something I am not good at is mixing palettes. I also have Naked 1, Vice, Sephora ipad palette, and soon to be Chocolate Bar. Anyone use Vice 3 yet and have an awesome eye to show off? Help an eyeshadow impaired girl out! Pictures welcome!
Hi, I really like the look that the Makeup Artist did for me on my wedding day. I love it but I did not have a chance to see how he did it (since I had to close my eyes, of course LOL) I am going to a special event this weekend and want to do this look on my own. Anybody has any idea about it ? I know this is a cut crease look but I don't know where to start and how we can create the perfect line between the lid and the crease? How to smoke out them? What kind of brushes to use ? Any help is much appreciated. Thank you !
Went to Sephora in JCP for the new KVD holiday palette (which is amazing btw) and saw these exclusive favorites sets. Didn't see anything about them on BT so I thought I'd share. Spa Radiance Star Performers Cleansing Rituals Lashes Unlimited Lip Service Makeup Must-Haves Eyeliner Essentials
The Sephora Favorites line is one of the things I love about Sephora. I've discovered great products that I never thought I would love because of it. I'm glad to see the selection is growing, with more skincare sets added. Regardless, I would love it more if Sephora would make an all-lipstick kit, all-blush kit, or a bronzer-highlighter kit. Maybe a nail product assortment. Whatever it is, I'd be happy to try as long as there is absolutely no Nars Orgasm or Laguna Any suggestions?
I need somewhere to track all of the awesomeness of this collection. Below is what I've read will be released, but I haven't seen any pictures, so post if you find any!! I know all of those lipsticks will be coming to live with me.. and the lip pencil, and probably the eye shadows, and really anything that can be described as 'sparkling chunky gold' needs to be mind.

when i apply foundation or any kind of makeup, once i step into sun my face turn into dark, need some suggestions, i apply sunscreen beneath my makeup, but still with in minutes, my face turn into dark. without makeup, i don't face this problem, changed many sunscreens, and many foundations, but nothing helped, wondering is there any solution for my problem?
I thought this would be an interesting challenge as well as difficult, but also help you discover creative ways and/or using up something you feel guilty of buying but never using. I'm a bit of an impulse buyer when it comes to eyeshadows. I have several palettes but I usuall end up just using the same one or switch it up with another commonly used in my collection and I thought that should stop. Recently I've been good about rotating palettes but it still doesn't get much use that makes me happy I bought it. At first I thought "a month should do it" but I know not even I would be able to keep that promise. The challenge is this. To pick a product that you haven't really got much use out of, and use it for an entire week. So an example would be "I haven't used much of the Kat von D sinner palette so I'll use it for a week now." Here's a loophole to this. You pick your item but you can still use other shadows from other things, the point is that the item you've picked has to be in your daily look. It doesn't have to be palettes or singles only as long as you pick the item and stick to it for a whole week. That way we won't feel so guilty about not using it so much. The item that I will be picking will be the Kat von D Monarch palette. I use it every once in a while but I haven't for 7 consecutive days. So starting this Sunday, that palette will be part of my every day routine until Saturday. Summary: It doesn't have to be a palette, it can be a single eyeshadow. It doesn't have to be eye shadow, it can be a lippie, blush, or mascara. *edited to add foundation to the list* Yes, you can mix it with other products but this will be the item you won't leave behind in your daily routine for the 7 consecutive days. You don't have to post a picture of yourself if you don't want to, but if you want to take a picture of your item of choice, you can, and if you want. All you have to say to yourself is I can commit, I can accept, and I succeeded!
SO BEAUTIFUL !!! Here is the Seak Peek Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=APMw0wMU_kQ&list=U U9MCq-Yl3C_ceGL28lQkYlQ This is what I have been waiting for ! The LORAC MEGA PRO PALETTE and their Exclusive Holiday Collection will be up on their website on OCTOBER 1 st !! Anyone is getting this beautiful palette ???
So I'm still on the hunt for what eyeshadow I want to get next, considering I still have credit from a recent return I can burn through. I'm considering a second Marc Jacobs palette (either the Dreamer or the Night Owl). I think pretty much everyone knows I've been on the fence about Vice 3 for weeks. I'm waiting on reviews of the Lorac Mega Pro when it's released this Wednesday. I'm waffling on a Charlotte Tilbury quad or a Chanel Les 4 Ombres. In my dream world I'd just splurge on a couple of Tom Ford quads but I think it's a bit too much to spend on myself until the holidays... and I'm also interested in hearing a little bit about the new Dior 5 Couleurs palettes that were released this fall! I know, I know, so much on my list, but really I'm only intending to buy one for now. Decisions are hard! Anyway, I swatched Trafalgar in store last week and I really thought the textures were quite nice and the colors look beautiful. I'm also interested in palette 456 Jardin (it looks gorgeous), but I haven't seen it in stores yet. Does anyone around here on BT have either of these palettes? If so, how do you like them? How is the wear and texture? I don't own any Dior eyeshadows, let alone any of the new palettes, so I'd love all the information I can get.
I'm not sure how many of you remember the makeup challenge posts, but I want to start some new ones for October! With Halloween just around the corner (yes, a month is just around to corner to me) I thought this would be a good way to practice any potential makeup/costume ideas. I'd like to post a new theme every week, but there are no deadlines so feel free to join in whenever and show off your costume makeup skills Feel free to suggest ideas in this thread, but I'm thinking with the RHPS MAC collection release that might be a good first challenge, and I'd like to have another week with a "random" theme (as in whatever you want!). I'll make the first post tomorrow if you're all interested
I was on IG earlier & this picture seems to be going around. Anyone picking it up? Is said to be released in October, at 58$ . I'm not sure if I'll pick it up. Maybe if the 3 blushes aren't ones I own... Or there's a LE one. We'll see 😬
Hello Everyone!!! I am going to a wedding soon, actually a week and a half to be exact, I"m not sure what kind of makeup look I should do (eyes, cheeks, lips). Let me know of any look suggestions that you have and any foundations you recommend that will last all night long! I'm wearing a short red dress with gold and black heals and black and gold jewelry! PLEASE HELP ME!!! Thanks loves!
I posted a previous post about starting a traveling box with samples and deluxe samples and a few ladies were interested in doing one! This is the 1st traveling box I am apart of and of course the 1st that I am starting. So, we need to decide if we are going to do a medium or small flat rate box. RULES No used items. No open items DO NOT take more than you put in. Let's keep this fun and fair DO NOT take multiples of the same sample PLEASE try not to keep the box more than 3 days Make sure to send your address to the person listed above you Once you send the box off, post the tracking number in this thread ALL unused items allowed (well maybe not nail polishes if it will make the shipping costs go up) Post a pic of what you take out, what you put in and what is left in the box before you send it off We are going to have fun and try to keep this going as long as we can! If you are interested in being in the box, I have a few spots left so post a pic of what samples you have in this thread to be added. To start off, we are only going to have 10 people! 1. CuriousCannibal 2. MegEm 3.MLLECC 4. tessie84 5. Kittichick 6. NicoleFrat 7. NightKnight 8. Sweetxteeth 9. Nishcakes 10. Kariyava
For those who missed out on the Artist Shadow 30-30 palette (like me), hurray we have new options! http://www.sephora.com/travel-brush-set-P389564?sk uId=1637834 http://www.sephora.com/studio-case-P389565?skuId=1 637792 http://www.sephora.com/makeup-station-P389566?skuI d=1637826 http://www.sephora.com/beauty-kit-P389563?skuId=16 37800 And here's a comparison of the shadows in the new palettes (click on the pic for larger view). If anyone can identify the missing shadow in the Studio Case, please share. Thanks! UPDATE: Missing shadow added to the list. Thanks michelleshops!
I finally depotted my lipsticks to save space in my kit and while I was depotting, I realized there's so much extra product that we don't even think about using. It just goes to waste. So here's the full bullet that we use. I sliced it off and you can see that there's still product inside the tube. Look how much is in there! That has to be at least 50 applications! There's even more in the tube that I didn't get onto the back of my tweezers. I transferred everything that I have into this organizer from Michael's for only $2! The only downside to depotting is losing the pretty packaging expensive lipsticks. Mine are all from the drugstore, so I wasn't reluctant to depot these!
I absolutely love Blackheart and I do not love the Naked 3 palette. I returned it, but I am contemplating buying it just for Blackheart but I can't see spending the money (again) for a palette I won't use. I also love the liner, but it only comes (as far as I know) in the double liner with Darkside...and I want it as a single. Please?!? Anyone know of any dupes ? I want the sparkle!
For all ladies who are waiting for Kat von D, I went to JCP Sephora to pick up the Vice 3 palette and lo and behold Kat von D's Holiday sets were out! I was completely surprised and excited to get them coz they were not even out online or Sephora store yet but here's a quick look at them on display. The lady told me they just got them in yesterday. I'll take better pics when I get them home.
i just saw a commercial for Manga Mascara! It looks so neat to be able to do, and before now, I didn't even think to do my lashes that way. Has this always existed and I just didn't know? Has as anyone done this before, with or without manga "mascara?"
I'm looking for a new foundation, and after swatching a bunch of options in store I've narrowed it down to either Tarte's Amazonian Clay foundation or Bare Minerals Bareskin foundation. I like that Bare Minerals has a little higher SPF and my wallet likes the price better, but Tarte matched my skin just a little better (though the difference is probably only noticeable under bright light) and it felt a little more natural on my skin. Which one should I go for?
We swatched the new Kat Von D Star Studded Eyeshadow Book to see how the colors looked on different skintones. What do you think?
Do you have a swatch of this palette? Post a pic in the thread below!
Hello everyone, I am sort of new to the Ambient Powders game, I got my first one in Diffused Light a few weeks ago. I have been really enjoying using it in my makeup routine, so I started thinking about getting another one. I am not really considering getting the palette, because I don't have use for Radiant Light at all. I also think (but I may be wrong) that Dim Light would be too light to use it all over my face. Here is my question: which other one would be a good choice for someone with VERY fair skin with pinkish undertones and a little redness in the skin?
