    i am so in love with makeup forever's face & body liquid makeup (foundation).
    it's got a gel like consistency, medium coverage that you can totally build up.
    and it doesn't make my cheeks flaky. this isn't a matte foundation, and i love
    the dewey finish.



    i use Alabaster Beige 32 (for light skin with yellow undertones) :

    the main reason behind the change is because i
    buff it it in with a stila #21 brush for that nice
    airbrushed look.

    @Nijntje i'd love to see your brushes, i'm itching
    to get some more but i have most of mac brushes.
    217 is my favourite!!!! <3 <3 now i'm trying out
    some of chanel's and bobbi brown's. am thinking
    of trying nars and MUFE brushes too.

    i don't like laura mercier brushes at alllllll!

    stila #21

    for primer i'm still using the makeup forever HD primer
    but now i combine the colour corrective colours



    1 Green (minimizes redness - ideal for skin with rosacea) +
    6 Yellow (lightens dark complexions) [for my hyper pigmentations)

    and i just bought makeup forever 5 camouflage cream palette
    which i realllllllllly love.

    i got no3.

    Ooh, I have the cream palette. Good stuff.
    I <3 mac brushes.
    Gotta try the MUFE products this time around, when I buy new foundation.

    I just bought this, and I love it:



    Kat Von D Lipstick Set.
    6 mini lipsticks for $28. At Sephora, not a bad price at all. Plus, love the packaging.

    if i rmember correctly, you said you had dryer skin?
    how do they work under your eyes... i have fairly dry
    skin too and i've noticed that at first application, i felt
    it was hard to work with BUT if i just leave it to settle
    into my skin... like i have to go do the rest of my face,
    when i come back the concealer is just perfect. like
    it needs time to sink in or something.

    do you know which brushes you are using?
    the ones i use most often are the 134, 217 and
    i loooove the 231 for smudging/eyeliner/eyeshadow
    my lower lashes

    i use the 134 to pat pat pat loose powder.

    and seriously if i can have only one brush,
    i'd go for the 217. AMAZZZZING blending abilities.
    so awesome for the crease!


    134, 217, 231

    omg try the primer. i bought the smashbox in colour
    corrective purple (for brightening), i mean the texture
    is definitely super silky, but i tihnk the MUFE does a
    better job at keeping my skin balanced, and i have noticed
    like flakiness with the MUFE, i've found that the smashbox,
    even though feels a little more slick, doesn't do as good a
    job of helping control my skin, i feel as though it's more a
    film and i have to work very carefully with it compared to
    the MUFE.


    yeah i put kitchen paper towels under everything when i'm
    putting on my face i need sometihng to wipe

    these mini sets! because i never finish the big products!

    @mmhmm: Wow, you're like the resident makeup expert. I am curious to see what your makeup collection looks like.

    UPDATE: I am still in love with Sugarpill (I have all the pressed powders now).... I only have to swipe each eye twice to get the brightness I want on my medium tan skin (w/ warm yellow undertones) .

    Do you have any suggestions on incorporating bright eyeshadow into an everyday look?

    I typically put black eyeshadow all over my lid and put a layer of bright shadow above it.

    I typically put black eyeshadow all over my lid and put a layer of bright shadow above it.
    my makeup collection is kinda scattered, and jock can attest to this,
    i do most of my makeup in the car. hahahhaha. i'll try to gather some
    stuff around the house and take a picture, but mostly i really love buying
    palettes and i'm a huuuuuge urban decay fan.

    colours for everyday: shadows: i keep the lid itself very light, especially
    in my inner corners to keep my eyes looking bigger and so that it's wearable
    and doesn't look so drastic. and like you, i use colours just above my crease
    (really invest in a good blending brush like the mac217), and again like you
    i use a dark colour under it, specifically in my crease so i can just define it and
    add depth to my hooded lid and keep my eyes a bit more open.

    but in keeping eye makeup wearable and not too drastic, it's more of finding
    a good balance to wear those bold colours...a little goes a long way. so in
    addition to keeping the bright colours in my outer corners and above the
    crease, i also use it under my lower lashline, going in just halfway not
    past my iris.

    as long as you're keeping the colours on the outer corner of your eyes,
    above the crease, and don't go past the middle you're good to go.

    and oh man i loooooooove coloured eyeliner, it really adds that pop of colour,
    i swear by the urban decay 24/7. i have the 24/7 jackpot set and the makeup
    forever aqualiner set.




    i loooove electric (the super bright blue) for my waterline. totally stands out.


    couldn't find a picture online for the makeup forever set, they're the ones on the right.
    these are the mini sized ones, which are great for
    testing out all the colours, they're super pigmented,
    and works great right on the lash line (smudge it out)
    or waterline. the other urban decay colours are missing
    from this foto, they must be in the car.

    but with the eyeliners you get additional colour without
    overkill you know.

    i've been loving purples, turqouises this fall. and have
    been loving dipping into my urban decay book of shadows: nyc



    these are fab because the way they arrange them it's
    like they're in quads and trips no matter how you split
    them up so it's very easy to play with the colours, though
    most of these are very shimmery.

    i'm actually really interested in the sugarpill eyeshadows
    because they have a really good range of matte colours,
    and that's even better to keep your eyes nice and open
    (you want to create shadows in the parts you want to
    recede [i have hooded eyelids] and keep it nice and
    light/shimmery where you want to accentuate).

    I recently purchased this on a whim, and I have to say I really like it. The only downside I can find on it is that it's a bit hard to get off of your face once it is on, but using this, and then getting it off with a scrubby exfoliant and then washing my face has been helping out a lot.

    Basically, you slather it on your face, wait a few moments, and then just start rubbing your face with your fingertips and dead skin just starts to fall off. It's pretty awesome. I looked like a zombie
