Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – FACE

I thought I would create a series of discussion where we could all share our make-up stashes. This is just meant to be fun.

 

How it works: Just take a picture of the stash mentioned in this post and upload to the discussion board. Feel free to tell us what you like best and included swatches. I know some people would love that Smiley Wink

 

Ok ladies time to share your make-up stash for your face. This includes foundations, concealers, powders, blushes, bronzers, primers, and illuminizers/highlighters.

 

This is the 1st in a series of post I will do. There is going to be one for eyes, lips, brushes, nails, perfume, skin care, body care, and hair care.

 

I must warn you… I’ve been a MAC addict for years and years. lol

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – FACE

Normally I match mine to my lippie, or vice versa.

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – FACE

You talking to me? lol.  Thanks =) I'll match my blush with my "strong" feature.  So If I do my eyes so they stand out I'll keep a nude lip and if I do a dark/bold lip I'll keep my eyes simple. I'll match the blush to go with the overall look, which is usually dictated by that "feature".

 

Although I started playing with make-up at a very young age MAC was my first high end brand.  It just opened up the doors for me to play with so many colors. (you'll see what I mean when I post the eyeshadow series). In high school I was wearing a uniform so this allowed me to bring in color.  Not that I would bring in any color in my clothes cause I'm always in a black top. lol. MAC was also started here in Canada and I remember their box having cruelty free beauty on them which was a big plus for me.  Now Estee Lauder owns them =(.  I don't see the cruelty free on the box but was told they don't test on animals because they don't need to. Wiki however states they don't but only do test when required by law. This blows... I wish the brand was never bought by EL. They destroyed what was good about it.  I guess they've been my beauty go to for years now.  I always loved their products but when I started to branch out to other companies I realized some make certain products better.  I'm really into trying to purchase more natural brands now but I can't throw away all that make-up or stop buying MAC (although I limit my purchases). It started all with them Smiley Wink

image.jpgThe Nars Orgasm, Tarte shimmering pink blush and a couple of the Bare Minerals powders are my 17 year old daughters along with the UD liquid foundation. Rest are mine. I am using the blush that came with the recent Bobbi Brown 500 point perk. I would like to get MJ's blush in reckless. I liked it in Sephora. The MAC blushes look nice too. Honestly, almost all blushes I try on in stores look amazing on me when SA's put them on me and then at home when I am alone they all look awful. I really wish I could learn how to apply it properly. 

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – FACE

I can't heart your post so here Heart Heart Heart

Is that Marc Jacobs concealer?

Check youtube for blush application tutorials. I think there was a thread here about favorite makeup tutorial gurus to start with. I also like to watch established makeup artist like Pat Mcgrath apply makeup on runway backstage/ behind the scenes videos.That's how I learned how to do cat- eye and smokey eye looks.

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – FACE

Oh this is so fun!  I'm going to upload tomorrow!

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – FACE

me too, if my technologically-challenged self can figure out how to do it. is anyone else afraid that their collection will end up being absurdly large?

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – FACE

IMO mine is already absurdly large but I can't stop myself from buying. lol

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – FACE

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – FACE

ah, i forgot to include my hourglass ambient lighting palette which is my newest addition.

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – FACE

Nice! Nice! Do you mix your liquid foundation together or use one at a time?

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – FACE

sometimes i do, to get the right shade. sometimes i have two different shades to suit my summer face vs winter face. i also find that if i mix with sunscreen or primer, it tends to lighten the foundation shade, so i have some foundations that are a little darker than my natural complexion.

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – FACE

I've been debating about doing this since you first posted yesterday.  If I group everything together though I'll have to acknowledge how much I actually have.

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – FACE

It's ok.  Don't worry you are among cosmetic junkies Smiley Wink Maybe I should start a Cosmetics Anonymous. lol

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – FACE

I have the same dilemma. I can just imagine my husband's reaction if he walks in  the room with the bed full of makeup!!! He supports my addiction but he has no idea how much makeup I actually have...come to think of it, so do I.

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – FACE

I'm going to try this too.  My collection is modest, but this will help me go through and see what I need to dispose of or replenish.

It's a good thing I did this!  I found a few items in the back of my drawer I completely forgot I had.

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – FACE

And I just looked at the Chanel powders and realized they're both Rose Merveille. Whoops.
