Everyone has at least one or two wedding stories - makeup mistakes, dress disasters, people losing their minds (at weddings or during planning) Full disclosure: @KatieKabam 's recent experiences shamelessly inspired this thread, and she graciously signed off on letting me set it up! So. What are your wedding disaster stories (big or small!) - did it happen to you? Did you see it happening and dodge the trainwreck? Not directly my story but my mother has told me that if I ever get married, I need to have powder and blush on hand at all times. She was horribly sick on her wedding day and I guess didn't do much with makeup - she looks horrible (she says) in most of her photos and so apparently my wedding beauty staple is blush. (Fun story related to that: She looked so unwell going down the aisle and my grandfather thought it was nerves. He told her "just say the word" & he would send everyone home and call off the wedding... grandparents took a very long time to warm up to my father.) One of my major stories that I have is when I was a friend of the bride (was asked to be maid of honor but declined for reasons relating to personal issues with groom/not wanting to create drama). It was a historical reenactment wedding, blah blah blah, the short version is someone had used boot black and then got it all. over. the bride's dress. It was a disaster. I actually had come from a horse show and had baby powder (& stain removers) on hand. We covered most of the carnage but I don't know if she ever got it all out.. The second major story I have involves a missing groom (he disappeared the morning of the wedding). He called one of the bridesmaids (whom he had only met the night before!) and said "Tell K. I'm not coming. I can't do it." Which is how I end up driving all across Denver with a bridesmaid trying to shave her legs and put her makeup on in the front seat while we hunt down the groom so he can sit down and talk with the bride. Friend has since refused to buy liquid eyeliner. Ever. (They did get married. She decided she was going to divorce him during the honeymoon. Then decided not to. It'll be three years in august and they're still together?)
So I had some makeup (and tea) boxes laying around and wanted to use them but without all the pictures all over them, so naturally GLITTER! Coated them in Modge Podge and Glitter and now I can use them for all sorts of things and they look pretty!! I also like to take old compacts, clean them out, then pour old nail polish (applies streaky, clumps, etc) into it so it dries nice and flat, to make play pretend makeup for kids. But I have no pictures of any of those right now. As I was doing this I realized there is no way that I am the only one to re-use, re-purpose, and craft old makeup boxes, compacts, perfume bottles etc....So I wanted to start a thread where we could all share our beauty crafting ideas!! So please ladies, show me your crafts!
So, recently I've made he decision to go cruelty free. I had made another thread asking about alternatives. However, I was also wondering for those of you who are already buying cruelty free; do you still buy from companies like Urban Decay and Tarte - who don't test on animals themselves, but their parent company does? I know that UD is owned by Estee Lauder and Tarte by Kose (At least from what I've read) who is definitely not cruelty free. Is that a deal breaker for you or do you still buy from these companies? I just would like to know how people feel about that and kind of get more insight on things.
Does anybody know if there are any Kate Spade Printable Coupons? And I already know about the signing up via email and receiving 15% off. But I am talking about any other ones that people are aware of.
I was thinking about this at work while I spent company time reapplying some moisturizer and re-highlighting myself... am I the only one that gets a little thrill from using company time to attend to some of my skincare and/or makeup routine? How far have you taken it...? Have you ever been caught? Who is brave enough to confess....? I frequently will take a 'bathroom break' to chill out, touch up my makeup... log in to BT from my phone and read what is going on during the day.. but sometimes I will go to work without makeup on days I know my boss isn't there... and do my whole face at work on the clock.. muahahahah.
Sephora participated in last year's Ebates Anniversary Week for a couple of days, but for whatever reason, it would appear that they opted out this year leaving everyone else to spend their money elsewhere. No doubt Saks and Neimans were the two biggest beneficiaries of Sephora's absence. So out of curiosity: Whether you ended up spending it elsewhere or chose not to spend it at all, how much do you think you would've spent at Sephora over the past week if they were included in the 15% cash back? I made one order from Saks at the beginning of the week, but can't say that any of that order would've gone to Sephora, given the supplemental promos Saks was throwing around in addition to Ebates. I can say that I had two items sitting in my Sephora cart (that aren't sold at Saks or NM) totaling $61 that I would've purchased if Sephora was 15% on Ebates.
Black Whiskey hit 20,000 hearts! Stop in and leave a heart or message for the one who always wows us with her gorgeous and artistic looks! I know I can always count on her for some makeup inspiration and to push myself to try different applications. Thanks BW, this heart party is for you (and Luna!)
I will be going into Calgary next weekend (long weekend for Canadians) and it is my first time ever so I have never been before. I was just wondering if shopping there at Sephora and clothing stores is it cheaper there? Or is it more expensive? I live in Manitoba so taxes here are different than Alberta of 5%. Manitoba is 5% GST and 8% PST. Like I know they have a Sephora there along with Kate Spade which I also love...just wondering if it's more expensive there to shop? Anyone have an idea or is from Calgary and can provide me with some insight? I would really appreciate it.

Please tell me I'm not alone....I was grabbing my brush case, and I didn't realize the case wasn't buttoned closed (top half comes off (think Sigma case)). Right before my eyes, I saw 22 of my brushes fall to the dirty kitchen floor!!!!! What are your makeup-related tragedies?? I might not read them right away....I need time to mourn Edit: I did wash my brushes shortly thereafter. I think they're stunned by the trauma.
in the past day, I've received emails for some pretty good sweepstakes and thought of starting this thread. So here is a place we can share these types of promotional sweepstakes, prizes and giveaways with each other and hopefully, one of us will win now and again! so share BT-approved modified links, sweepstakes info and any results here. Fingers crossed one of us wins some great prizes!
We all have those items that we want to get but either by the price tag or just the product in general you aren't really sure if you should get it or not. My current iffy product is the TOM FORD Soleil Contouring Compact. To me that is gorgeous and the whole reason i want to get it is to reduce space and because the colors are so beautiful. So what's your iffy product or am I the only one? It can be luxury or just average but you just never brought yourself to buy it.
Whether you want to push your creativity or just utilize your collection, I hope you will join me in a rotating makeup challenge! Each challenge lasts a full week so you can post any day that is best for you, or multiple times a week. New challenges start on Mondays. The schedule is posted in the spoiler tag. PLEASE let me know of any ideas you have and I will add them to the list! ALSO if there is anything in my list that people do not want to do, then I will remove it. Be as bold or subtle as you want! Make the challenge fit your daily needs. I am more of an idea-person, so I'm pretty sure some of these are going to be a struggle for me to actually do. But #whatever. This week: Crayola Box OR Send Nudes Description: Do an all colorful look or a monochromatic nude look (do not actually send nudes pls). BONUS Challenge: blindly reach into an actual crayon box, pull out three crayons, and use those colors.

So I wanted to keep this on the down-low, I know I've only told one person, and thank you for keeping it a secret too. I didn't really want to post anything but I know you guys have been with me through thick and thin, you guys showed amazing support when I was going through Neko's death, and many other situations I've been in. Tomorrow my mom is being admitted into surgery, it's been 10 years or so since she got her pacemaker and lately she had been going to a lot of doctor's appointments but they always said she was fine, last week they told her she needed to go immediately to have I suppose a battery replacement? because it was hiccuping or something of the sort. When my mom started voicing to me that she wasn't feeling well, that she felt her heart was going to stop, that was last year when I was still working. Aside from my depression that was one major reason why I decided to quit my job, I couldn't handle not being there for her, and I couldn't if I worked because I'd get home and just sleep and wake up at 5 am. I know i've expressed many problems happening with my mom and how we clash A LOT, but in the end she is still my mom and I love her so so much and it scares me that she's going in tomorrow, it scares me so much. I've been reassured by my friends who used to live near me and one that still does that she'll be okay but I still have that worry. I'm trying not to make it so much that I start thinking so negative, but yeah. It's tomorrow and it hit me hard. I placed an order for Dior Dolce Vita perfume I believe, for her, that should be arriving tomorrow, but I want to save that for mother's day. I'm thinking flowers, but that seems cliche too? I don't know? Maybe a poem. I've been trying to get back to everyone's comments but sometimes unexpected events happen around my home where I can't and then I forget, but thanks for the recent comments, especially the rainbow cheek ones!
I don't need to explain anything, just let it be known, today I needed to vent to people who wouldn't judge me and ask me questions. I got this. But tonight I just really want to vent. Thank you all. I'm OK. But life is hard sometimes...
May hauls! Excited for this month for many reasons - for my birthday, the (hopefully) upcoming sunny days, Mother's day, blossoming flowers and the first time I will be (attempting) gardening! I would love to see all your hauls both beauty and any thing you have bought or planted for the garden or even indoors Here is my first haul of the month Spoiler (Highlight to read) TF Pipa - pretty everyday summer color TF cheek brush - finally! Waited for the month to end to grab this! UD matte lipsticks - on sale, more on the way Jack Black lip balm (my fav - repurchase) TF Pipa - pretty everyday summer colorTF cheek brush - finally! Waited for the month to end to grab this! UD matte lipsticks - on sale, more on the wayJack Black lip balm (my fav - repurchase)
So I plan on going to Sephora during summer break and want a few items but the total came out way more than I expected. lip glosses: Buxom's full on lip creams in dolly and mudslide eyebrows: ABH brow powder duo in medium brown and benefit's brow gel in medium deep.and a brush that's $ 18.00 I really want to buy everything but it seems too expensive. Should I take some of these out of my list?
i dunno about you guys but this month has been a whirlwind. this month's favorites are a few new babies and a couple rediscovered old timers. surprisingly no skincare, as i'm keeping to what i know (and harp on about all the time) and it's working out grand. STILA stay all day liquid lipstick, baci . got this, and all my other lipsticks have been neglected. i can't stop. flattering yet subversive nude -- just a hint of purply grey keeps it on the edge. NYX microw brow pencil in black . A PROPER BLACK PENCIL FOR US BLACK HAIR GIRLS !!!! thank the heavens. very similar to ANASTASIA brow wiz, but this formula i've noticed gives a slight sheen to the brow hairs, in a good way--looks more natural that way ! thank you @MK89 for guiding me toward this little drugstore gem ! ETAT LIBRE D'ORANGE dangerous complicity EDP . the first time i got my nose on this i thought there was nothing dangerous about it. i didn't think it was particularly unique (i still don't, frankly) or exciting about it. but this one is a slow burn. this perfume is kinda the TLC 'creep' of perfume. just creepin on the down low and then you realize you're intoxicated and in love. (i don't think that's the point of that song. whatever.). very much want to learn more about the chinese o smanthus flower now, too. i've found that boys like it (if you care about that). NARS liquid illuminator, copacabana . i bought this last year and fell in love, only to neglect it because i thought, maybe, it broke me out. turns out it doesn't break me out (we'll blame the amount of stress i was going through when i originally tried it). which is great for me because it's everything i want in a highlighter ! NARS single eyeshadow, lhasa . i've been on a cool tones kick this month (i'm still a bit baffled by this development) and the glorious lhasa has been by my side through the ride. if anyone wants a grey eyeshadow, this is what i'd recommend. a mid-toned grey with a hint of violet and brown that aren't so literal but give lhasa an enchanting depth. pairs beautifully with NARS blondie eyeshadow in the crease.
