What a great thread! And your make up looks are fabulous bek--your techniques are awesome.

This is one of my "polished" looks--I do it for work and church but tend to change up the color combos. For this one, I used the following:

Mary Kay Medium Coverage Foundation in Ivory 202
Mary Kay Mineral Powder in Ivory 1
Covergirl Exact Eyelights for Hazel Eyes shadow(a shimmery cream shade on the brow bone, the lighter brown, almost cafe au lait shade on the lid, the deeper brown color in the crease, and the light mint color on the inner eye)
Covergirl Exact Eyelights eyeliner in Majestic Jade
Almay intense i-color mascara in Black Emerald
Mary Kay Mineral Blush in Sunny Spice
L'Oreal Color Riche lipliner in Au Natural
L'Oreal Color Riche with Anti-Aging Serum lipstick in Blushing Bouquet

One pic was taken this morning right after I did the DKR, the other with my warpaint.

Are you completely against using a liquid? The reason I ask is that a tinted moisturizer may work for you; when I was experiencing really bad flakes, I used Physician's Formula Organics tinted moisturizer and it actually helped, and for such a product, it covers quite well.

Thanks! On my lips, I used L'Oreal Colour Riche Lipliner in Au Naturale (it's kind of a pinkish nude) and L'Oreal Colour Riche Anti-Aging Serum Lipstick in Blushing Bouquet (almost a mauve color). The only bad thing is that it has a weird smell, but I only notice it when I first put it on.

^the quote problem happened to me in this forum the other day... the page just wouldn't finish loading, I thought it was on my end. Maybe not..

Great video Bek! I commented, obviously lol.gif I'd like to see a base video - foundation, concealer, primer - your skin is sooo perfect looking!


Huh that is weird!

Thank you hahaha your comment was hilarious. Awwww :] thank you!!! I will definitely do a base video. I have to get the lighting & camera thing down. I'll probably try tomorrow!!

Bek, I couldn't quote your comment above for some reason, but the concealer is a liquid. Sometimes I put it on with a brush, but usually get frustrated and use my finger to blend it in better. What do you recommend? Is a cream better than a liquid? I put my foundation on with a brush and love it. That seems to work really well. Do you think a sponge would be better? Sorry to be a bother. Thanks for all your help. At 23 I should know how to apply makeup lol, but I don't.


Hmm. I usually like a cream because I feel like it's more opaque and therefore becomes easier to cover with. I'll probably do a base skin video like Ayla suggested and that way you can see the awesome concealer I use! All the liquids I've used have eventually ended up sliding or getting greasy in some way and I hate that! I'm sure there are some good ones out there, but I haven't had a lot of luck with them yet. I think if a brush works for you you should use that! Haha no problem at all. We all learn things all the time :] I also set my concealer with powder on a small angle tipped brush!

Yay, I'm so glad you're going to do videos now! Your pictures are lovely. You'll definitely have to come down to SoCal and go with me to Sephora. I've got to spend my gift cards, hehe. Btw, have you tried MUFE Full Cover concealer? I've been really wanting to try that one out, and have heard it's one of the best for covering blemishes/red marks.

Here's a pic of my peepers, lol. I love using eye shadows for liner.


Aw thank you Michellica! smile.gif
LOL I'd be more than happy to!! That would be a good time for sure. I actually haven't tried it, but I know a lot of people seem to like it! It's probably a good one to try. Your eyes look gawgggeous!
