I'm a professional Makeup Artist and would love to discuss makeup with anyone here who's interested - fave colour combos, product recommendations, techniques...anything!
Anyone else obsessed with everything makeup?
cool. Right now I am a fan of Vichy make up. I have this amazing foundation from them. Also a huge Lancome fan, I love their lipsticks.
But NYC makes a nice light powder and their lip sticks are great as well.
and I am into the natural makeup look. I just wear foundation and a bit of neutral lipstick. Neutral for me is a rose like pink, because my lips are naturaly dark and I have pink undertones in my skin.
but you might be able to help me with a new look for my wedding.
I have 3 eyeshadow quad things that I use the most, one in browny pinks, one in smokey blues and purples, one in greens. I decieI love framing my eyes so I go dark on the outer bits of my eyelids to light on the inner bits. I love having big full lashes. Despite the mascara I use (the stuff that claims to make them look fuller and longer) you can only really tell close up how can I make them stand out more!?
I don't mind paying up to a 10er for one bit of make up because it lasts better then cheap stuff.
I can't do mascara. My eyelashes are crazy mad long. When I put it on, it creates streaks on my glasses.
Wait for it to dry first then lol! I don't do my fringe until my mascara is dry so I won't get black on my fringe and so that they will dry all fluttered out and won't get pushed down by my fringe! Although I cut my fringe cuz i couldn't see very well lol
u know, I never tried waiting for it to dry lol
I have the same problem michelle G when I wear glasses...and I let my lashes dry! Curling them does help a bit though, you might want to try that
yeah, good idea. I am a simple make up person, I really havn't gotten into wearing alot of make up. Only foundation.
Trust me - before I became a makeup artist I didn't even wear foundation. Just lip gloss and mascara! I still don't wear much anymore, and what I do wear is mineral makeup.
I have been thinking of trying that. Mineral makeups, any suggestions on what to try?
yeh I like the sound of the mineral stuff because it doesnt sink in like liquid foundation
true. I like using concealer and powder. Although I wouldn't mind mascara(I got super sensitive skin though) whats a good brand to try? I don't like cover girl at all. Rimmel is ok...love Lacome(but 20 dollars for a mascara...I don't know about that)
I like make-up, but i get scared of buying the expensive ones in case they turn out shit. I usually go priceline and buy my foundation, powder, eyeliner ((the one thats like a windup crayon )) and mascara from there. I have this 10year old eyeshadow palette i still use. It works, but i love the girl's who have really amazing makeup like on the LJ community Punk makeup. So Bright!
I'm a bit of a makeup whore but don't like spending lots. I have a £7 mascara because I have feeble eyelashes, but my liquid eyeliner was only £2, I use Max Factor mousse foundation because it's the only one I can find which is pale enough for me without making me look really white. I use cheapish red lipsticks and red lip liner, then lipcote. A cheapy eyebrow pencil because my eyebrows are too light. I don't have much I can do though - I have black hair, pale skin and green eyes so I can only really wear red, purple and grey tones which makes me look really gothic
no way, you could get really light coloured eyeshadows that are shimmery and you could wear dark pink lipstick/gloss instead of red. My foundation/blusher makes me look whiter but I think that's just at first because you've just seen yourself with none on and because I wear blusher it warms up my complexion. I've lost my blusher though and forgot to buy more when i went shopping yesterday I'll get some tomorrow though I usually never loose anything!
