Hi! I have a "make-up-question". I have used the Laura Mercier mineral powder before, and i used the colour "tender rose" which was perfect for my skin. I am a little more tan now, and i wonder which colour you think would fit me best if I used to be a tender rose? I have to mention, I am not very tan, so is there a colour that is just a notch of a darker shade than the tender rose? Thank you very much!
Hi all! I am wondering if anyone else has experienced the same problem I am having with my new Guerlain sheer bronzing powder compact. Even though I have run a cotton pad over the powder and also run my brush over it quite a bit, I am not getting much color-not even as much as I was able to get with the tester in the store. Any ideas?
How do I get a look like this? http://www2.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/Kate+Davidson+H udson+Jennifer+Fisher+Spring+cBNEYbhEOdal.jpg the one in the white. She has that beautiful glowy/dewy skin. I don't know if her skin is oily or she's using something hydrating or moisturizing. I would love to get that egg white look on the skin!!
Sorry, not really a question, but a makeup geek out... I recently got the Smashbox Studio Pop Ultimate Palette, and it has completely surprised me. I got it kind of on a whim, (at Shopper's Drug Mart, if you're from Canada), because I could get it free (it's priced at $70 CAD) and it looked kind of amazing with 45 eyeshadows, 6 blush/bronzer/highlighter, 9 eye liners and 6 lip glosses. It also comes with 4 double sided look cards (8 looks total) and a double sided eyshadow/eyeliner brush and a lip brush, and a large mirror. I had gotten a Smashbox holiday eye palette a few years ago (the Wish one?) and it was a little bit of a let down, the shadows just weren't that great quality. So I was really unsure of how well this paette would perform. But I'm really amazed by this palette, the packaging has gotten significantly better, it's not super large and chunky for a palette that holds so much. Also it comes with plastic covers, (that flip up), that protect the products from getting all over eachother and the mirror. I can even see myself travelling with this palette since the packaging was done so well (even if I clearly don't need to travel with such a quantity of shades ). The shadows are pigmented, soft and blendable, the range of shades is wonderful, with shimmery, matte and a couple glitter finishes, and the perfect amount of neutral and colorful shades. The blushes have matte and shimmery finihes and there is a matte bronzer, ranging from a soft natural cheek color, to a bolder more colorful shade. The eyeliners are wonderfully creamy and pigmented with a nice range of colors (even has gold and silver!). Finally there are 6 lipglosses with no shimmer or glitter. They are decently pigmented with a range of neutral to a bold red lip. I think going with a pigmented gloss was a good idea, since they will satisfy those that enjoy a bold lip color and those that are more shy of it. I am realy amazed by this palette. They hit the perfect note, in the choices of shades and products, so it will appeal to and be flattering on EVERYBODY. And for a large "value" holiday palette the quality is really good. Also I usually hate when there are open glosses or lip colors in a palette with powders, because you inevitably ened up with glitter and powder in the gloss (ew!), but I haven't had this problem either. The only flop in this palette was the eyeshadow brush side of the double sided eye brush, it feels cheap. But I have my own brushes anyway, and at least it's not a tiny sponge brush (a pet peeve of mine, since they are usually utterly useless). Although I see that the Sephora website doesn't carry it, they do have the eyeshadow palette, which if it is like this palette it is definitely worth checking out. And sometimes I find they carry items like this in store even though they aren't online. Sorry for my geek-out... But if you managed to make it all the way through my rant, what do you think? Have you been taken by total surprise by a palette or product? Usually I find "holiday" palettes lose their quality since they are offering such quantity.
I love wearing makeup, but I don't actually know what would look best on me. I blush easily, and I have light freckles on my nose and cheeks. My hair is black, short, and naturally curly and my eyes are dark, warm brown. My skin is pale and I get acne easily, I regularly use anti-acne products so acne isn't a huge issue for me but I would rather use light or oil free foundation/concealer if any.
so I really want to try the MUFE mat velvet + but I dont know what shade? but Im thinks shade number 65, I use Mufe HD in shade 153 and in Benefit Oxygen Wow I use shade "I'm all the rage beige" any Opinions?
