The OG post!

Hi girls & guys!

I noticed there are a lot of people who have opinions about make up on this site! Whether good, bad, curious, or wanting to know how to put on make up more skillfully- we can talk about it here! I thought it would be fun to have a thread about different looks. I will be posting my make up looks daily (or near daily) to see if anyone wants to know how to do part or all of them! And please feel free to add yours biggrin.gif

Bek this is kind of off topic but can you recommend a berry colored lip stain and lipstick? I'm searching for something on the more purply side but not too purple... Does that make sense?

*Please help meee!*

Haha not off topic at all!! It does make sense. What I actually LOVE is Lorac's Tie Die lip gloss set. If you live near a Sephora call and see if they have any left in stock. They have a perfect purple-y gloss in the set!! All the glosses are full size. They are some of the most perfect lip glosses I've ever used and the range of colors is perfect. 5 full size colors for $25!! And it's a high end brand.

- Have you tried Clinique's Black Honey gloss/balm/or lipstick? That seems to be very popular.

- Stila Lip Glaze in Black Cherry or Berry

- Bare Escentuals Lip Gloss in Pomegranate, Sugar Plum, or Tartelette

So I am going to meet my personal trainer to sign him up at my gym. I decided I better go natural wink.gif Even though we aren't working out. I used:

- Lorac Double Feature concealer & highlighter
- Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover foundation
- Fresh Here Comes the Sun Face Palette
- Korres Wild Rose Lip Butter
- Urban Decay Brow Box

Very natural. You can't exactly tell from this photo but my cheekbones are highlighted and right under my brows.

You look gorgeous! x_x

Um, probably a very obvious question, but you wouldn't happen to know of a way to stop concealer caking under the eyes at all? I've tried so many different concealers and getting a nice look for my under eye is the one thing I struggle with! If I set it with powder, it goes cakey, don't set it with powder it goes chalky. It's very odd.

Hmm...i'll leave a little tip for make-up as well so i'm at least contributing a little bit? smile.gif
My tip is try using primer if you struggle getting your foundation on evenly biggrin.gif It works wonders if you have dry skin as it helps foundation go on much much smoother. I use Lancome's La base and when I'm not using that I use Mac's prep and prime. (Who also do an awesome SPF50 primer too!)

Aww thank you!
Hmmm. That is really a toughie. This is what I usually use! smile.gif ----> The review I posted:

"I love this pen. It works as a truly wonderful under eye brightener. All the concealers I have tried using under my eyes have been too cakey or too heavy and have accentuated my wrinkles there. Yuck. This is a perfect balance of coverage and still looking natural. It's not a full coverage product because it's meant to luminize & highlight, not to conceal. If you are looking for a concealer this is definitely not it. If you want something to smooth you out around the edges and make you look more radiant and rested- this IS it! I use it on my eyelids, under eyes, around my mouth, and the corners of my nose. It's also good around eyebrows to really define them."

So that is a great thing to have in your arsenal. The other thing I love is Amazing Cosmetics's concealer. It does settle. You just have to check it every once in a while and gently smooth it with the tip of your finger. I haven't really found one that NEVER EVER settles. Haha. But these are my 2 best options. I don't set it with powder. I might sweep my big face brush lightly under my eyes- but that's the max amount I would put there, otherwise it does look cakey. Make sure it's blended really well into your cheek area and around the edges and you should be fine.

And your tips are great, thanks! biggrin.gif

a pretty good drugstore dupe of the YSL TOUCHE ÉCLAT is revlon's age defying spa concealer
It is like a reason that picks you up
And places you
Where you always wanted
To be.

How could I forget Fresh Sugar lip treatment in Plum!!!! Look that up too wink.gif

And no problem at all! I'd love to hear which one you like! Stila is a little bit thicker/a bit sticky but looks veeeery luscious. Bare Escentuals feels pretty natural. Fresh feels amazing as it's a lip treatment technically, just tinted purple.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!! biggrin.gif hahaha flatterer!

Aw you are so welcome! It takes a little tiny getting used to, but once you figure out how to use it, it is so easy!! Maybe if you get it and want me to I can do a demo video for you (of my personal technique anyway)!

Hey Bek, have you ever thought about doing your own makeup videos on Youtube? Like a makeup guru? I think you'd be great at it.

Yeah, I really think so. You seem to know your makeup well, you know alot about skincare products, you're good at doing makeup...I would watch. I watch a few of them on there now and I think you should totally do it! biggrin.gif

Well, you could show everyone your skincare routine, or different makeup styles or do a haul when you buy cosmetics. You could start anywhere really. Maybe start off with an everyday natural look for girls who don't have alot of time or don't wanna wear alot of makeup. I have trouble mastering the natural look myself. LOL
