Q. Makeup Recommendations? Sweet 16
Hello all! I am planning a sweet 16 in January, and the theme will be Winter Wonderland. I am trying to get ideas on how to do my makeup! I have a light complexion, with hazel eyes and long brownish blonde hair. The dress is a white iridescent ballgown. I will be having pictures taken, and it is towards the evening so something photo-ready? Any suggestions are appreciated! P.S I am going to Sephora for them to do my makeup, but just wanted a general idea.

Q. Eyelash Curler Comparison
The best eyelash curlers really depends on people's eye shape and preference. After terrible experience with a couple of the hyped/popular curlers, I decided to do a comparison between the ones Sephora carries: Shiseido, Lancome, Tarte, Sephora and Tweezerman. Hopefully it will be of help to you, too.   Tarte, 1 replacement pad+mascara : smaller and rounder than other 4 curlers and have the squishy-est pad. Parts a bit loose and the middle comes together first so if you don’t squeeze firmly, it looks like ><. Tarte (left) and Shiseido (right). You can see tarte is smaller and rounder.   Sephora, 2 replacement pad : Have the firmest pad of all 5 curlers. Comparable to Shiseido, both a tiny bit flatter than other curlers. When I use Shiseido and Sephora, the middle part press against my eyes first, when using Lancome, the whole side+middle press against my eyes at same time.   Shiseido, 1 replacement pad: Medium/normal firm pad, comes together evenly. It have a unique dip on the corners, unlike any other curlers. Due to vertical curve of the curler and dip, it actually irritates my eyes and it water every time I use the curler. =/ Shiseido (left) and Lancome (right). You can see the dip in Shiseido while Lancome and other curlers don't have the dip.   Lancome, 1 replacement pad : similar to Tweezerman, both very slightly rounder than Shiseido and Sephora, medium firm pad.     Tweezerman ProCurl curler, 3 replacement pad : very nice weight, feels durable. 3 replacement pad. Curls all my lashes at once. Couldn’t tell the difference between this and Lancome, except this have a nice weight and feels sturdy (none of the parts feel loose). It also says free sharpening and life time warranty (why would you sharpen your curler?)   All in all, if you've got smaller or rounder eyes, go for Tarte. If your eyes are deeper set, Shiseido curler's dip corner will help you get the corner lashes. If you like a firm pad (pro: no sharp kinks/angle. con: require more force to squeeze for a good curl), go for Sephora. Tweezerman feels nicer in my hand than Lancome, but honestly my eyes don't feel a difference when I was curling. I ended up getting the Tweezerman cuz it's got the most replacement pad, and Sephora one cuz it's sturdy and I tend to be heavy handed but don't want to crinkle/cut off my lashes.   Happy curler shopping!

Q. Good mascara for thin, short eyelashes?
So my eyelashes are really thin, and i'd say they're short.Even using an eyelash curler they arent that amazing. The mascaras ive tried are Maybelline mega plush, Dior iconic overcurl ( everyone always suggests this and I liked it but it didnt make them as long as I hoped :-( ) . I liked the Dior one but i'm hoping to find something better that will make my eyelashes look thicker + longer. I dont know how some people get their eyelashes so long and thick looking lol.

Q. Best Foundations??
Hello! I am in a busy search for a foundation that doesn't break me out! I recently switched to high end foundations after using about four bottles of my Covergirl 3-in-1 foundation.

Do you have any foundations in Sephora that stay on, are for oily skin, and DONT BREAK YOU OUT? Thank you!!

Q. COLLEGE?!
Hello all!   As you can tell from the title I will be on my way to college very soon! This means I will pretty much be on my own money-wise (with only minimal help from parents). I want to be responsible with my money, but I also don't want to give up some of my favorite makeup brands (first world problems am I right?). This applies to skincare too!   Some questions I have: When do I save and when do I splurge? How long do certain products last (meaning how long before I run out?)? How can I get the most out of my products (making them last as long as possible)? What's a healthy budget amount for makeup? Per year, per month? What are the bare minimum products I should use? One of my goals is to not be excessive with the amount of products I have! Just the basics!

Q. Urban Decay will no longer be Cruelty Free
Just thought I'd post this here, since I know a lot of people only buy cruelty free makeup.   According to their facebook page:   "To all our UDers: We have decided to sell Urban Decay products in China. Because of China’s policies, this has upset some of our loyal fans who are also animal rights activists. For complete information, please visit  www.urbandecay.com/chin ainfo . We are listening to all of your feedback and questions, and will try to address every single one of you. We do want to address one FAQ: No, Urban Decay will not test on animals in China. However, the Chinese government may conduct a test using our products before they can be sold there. We absolutely realize that for many of you, it makes no difference who is doing the testing. But, animal rights are still very much important to Urban Decay, and our decision was a thoughtful one. Changes are already happening in China, and we will give our all to help advocate alternative methods."   http://www.urbandecay.com/Urban-Decay-China/Urban- Decay-in-China,default,pg.html
