What’s a good brand for fake eye lashes?

Also, dark under eye circles. Anything liquidy makes me look older, and powder just falls off. I’m so pale I’m a blue blood if that makes a difference. Horrible term I know, but it really discribes my skin.

Yes, I second undereye concealer….if I don’t use it I have dark circles, if I do use it my skin looks wrinkly and dry, no matter how lightly I apply.  I get the same effect whether I use a powder (like bare minerals) or liquid.  I’m thinking of trying Benefit Erase Paste, what do you think?

Also, does bare minerals really give the white face flash effect?  I’ve been told yes, but I’ve been taking pictures of myself to test and haven’t seen it….yet?  How much of a risk am I taking if I use bare minerals or MUFE hd powder? I’m terrified of ruining my pictures, bahaha.

Thanks in advance! 🙂

What is that stuff that Kim K (and other celebs) put under their eyes to catch makeup and highlight/contour their face?

@cdncinnamongirl:  I know this question was for the makeup artist but, I thought I would share what works for me. I use Make Up Forever concealer and I apply it with a concealer brush. Nothing else has worked the way this does.

@BellaDee:  I hate heavy make up (It goes into my frown lines) and normally wear bare minerals which I love but I’ve heard it looks odd in photos, is that true? and also  it does make me ‘glow’ ie look shiny more than regular make up does.

Do you have any favourite bases? would you apply liquid and then powder. Ive tried this and it looks great from a distance but close up looks awful!

For the other bees – I use touche elat for under eye bags and it works fine, benfits erase paste was WAY too orange. too heavy for me x

@rushingangel:  I thought the Erase Paste was orange too, but I assumed that was to counteract the blue of the dark circles.  Hmm, maybe I should re-think this purchase.

@rushingangel:  I use a perfecting primer before I put on foundation/powder….I find using a face lotion befor heavy foundation makes the coverage perfect and even. 

I tried using mineral powder but it’s not for me, if you’re looking for great photo makeup I personally don’t think powder is the way to go.

I don’t buy fancy makeup usually, I stick with non-sephora brands (other than my eye shadow, which I will use MAC and Urban Decay)

Try compact powder, I swear by it during the week, I feel like i’m wearing nothing, the coverage with True Match is really good…

I put this on first:

Thank you so much for this. I have a few questions. I am African and I have good skin. Hence, I hardly ever wear make up. However, as a lady in my 30’s, I really should start looking after my skin more and having a night time routine. I usually wash with Aveeno and use a moisturizer and that’s it. I wear sun screen sometimes but I hardly ever ever go out under the sun. I don’t drink, smoke or tan. I’d love to continue having good skin so any step by step help would be appreciated.

   Also, I am horrible at putting on make up. I went and bought the Sonia Kashuk brand brushes soemone suggested Only thing is, I don’t know how to use make up that well. What with the foundation brush and powder brush and primer etc. Do you know a set of youtube videos that can help especially for darker skinned ladies? I don’t want to spend too much money experimenting but I could buy some ELF products and then move on to more higher end stuff once my routine is perfected. Thank you so much.

You are so sweet for doing this!!!

 

Here is a pic of me:

I am having a french themed wedding and wanted to go for the brigette bardot type look.

 

My hair is going to be curly and pinned backand up, but I wanted a dramatic eye with a pink lip.

 

Number one: I always struggle with enough blush: I put it on, and it doesnt seem dark enough.

 

Numer two: I am a crier. Soooo what the heck do  iuse for the dramatic eye?

 

Number three: What is your best recommendation for a stay put powder?

 

Number four: My frickin brows. Ack. I buy fawn I fill them, how do  Iget them to look mega full?

 

Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I use the erase paste for undereye circles and it’s not too orange for me. It is a bit heavy IMO but it conceals well.
