    Totally agree! I want mmhmm to do my makeup.

    What's a waterline? And were those smashbox primers eyeshadows? I didn't know eyeshadow came in liquid.

    the waterline is right above your lower lashline.

    lower lashline = bottom left + top right picture
    waterlining = the bottom right hand picture.


    primers are used to make makeup stay on longer.
    depending on the brand/formulation it can also
    help you smooth out your face so it's a better
    canvas for you to apply makeup

    it is applied after you moisturized, but before you
    put any makeup on.

    there are liquid, mousse, cream, gel eyeshadows!
    they come in all formats! pigmentation/consistency
    varies according to format.




    swatches of the ombre d'eau

    my favourite liquid eyeshadow ever is the
    chanel ombre d'eau eyeshadow (link). this is my
    go to eyeshadow in the summer. it's very
    shimmer and i just swipe it on, works with
    a bareface too. and it feels soo good on
    the skin, very cooling. and the colours are
    very easy to wear. though it creases in my
    eye (so i use a primer to make it stay in its
    place). for eye primers i love urban decay
    primer potion.

    every normal man must be tempted, at times,
    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.

    OH! Okay, I do that. I will get some primer and some of those cool eyeshadows. Thank you so much.

    I know it's so 70's/80's but I have been having a SERIOUS urge to wear that blue mascara again>cobalt or royal.....Don't know if you know that used to be popular back when. Or even green. But mainly blue. Does anyone do that? And do you know a good brand?


    Do you belly dance? Great costume. I do too. Though not in public unfortunately.

    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.
    Yes, I have dry skin, but it's not flaky. It's aging, so it's really hard to moisturize, as the dryness comes from within. But my makeup goes on well if I moisturize. I have problems with concealers fading, so I apply the concealer over my foundation. That seems to do the job.

    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!
    The ones I use almost everytime I apply makeup are:
    219 Pencil Brush - I usually do 3 eyeshadow colors with the "V" technique, so I draw the "V" with 219.
    217 Blending Brush - Yes, I love it too for blending the colors at the meeting-spots.
    263 Small Angle Brush - For gel eyeliners.
    168 Large Angled Contour Brush - For the application of powder illuminators and bronzers.
    129 Powder/ Blush Brush - For the application of powder blush.
    187 Duo Fibre Brush - To pat on Fix-Plus. I don't set my makeup with powder, because it makes my wrinkles look worse. I use Fix-Plus to set my makeup, and I pat it on with a duo fibre brush.

    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
    I plan to try this next when I buy primer.

    doesn't make me feel garish! and they last and last!
    i think sephora has singlehandedly gotten me into
    these mini sets! because i never finish the big products!

    i looove underage red, it's like berry stained lips. yum.
    I can't wait to try them out. I love the mini-sets too. I have a whole drawer full of lipsticks I haven't used (lancome free gifts), but I go out and buy more. I like the mini-sets for the same reason, that I never finish the full-sized lipsticks. I tried to get this set last year, actually, but I was too-late-on-the-draw, so this year, I ran right out and grabbed one as soon as I saw they were available.

    I will be there! I want the hello kitty eyeshadow/lip gloss palette, a hello kitty rollerball, and tarte lipstain set. I also want the benefit "the big 10" set. I haven't tried any of their products yet.

    lancome lipgloss in... i forgot the colour alread
    smashbox primer
    chanel vital lumiere in b40 desert (to mix with my b30 sable... but now i'm using the MUFE face & body more since it's fall and i like wearing more make up)

    mac fluidline - blacktrack
    nars duo eyeshadow in rated r
    nars soft touch shadow pencil in goddess -- so so pretty this colour
    chanel stippling brush no7
    Lots of stuff I still need to try! I still need to try a paint pot. The cleansing oil sounds like it may be a good product for me.

    Those shades would look pretty on the lips too. I miss 'slow dance,' the frosty lipgloss Benefit Cosmetics discontinued.

    I love colored mascara.
    YSL makes blue, violet, burgundy, gray (surprisingly pretty on), and green. (In addition to black, ashy black, and a couple of shades of brown.)
    Also Diorshow Iconic if you want a blue that you can see.
    My personal favorite is Estee Lauder More Than Mascara, which is navy blue.

    Oh -- primers -- e.l.f. eyeshadow primer is surprisingly good for $1.
    And I love Avon Magix Face Perfecter Primer better than any more expensive primer I've tried, if you're looking to keep the shine off your face.

    Also I'm crazy for Dior quads, and going in the opposite direction from glam, Bobbi Brown for a day face.
    And MAC cream blushes.

    -makeup forever hd elixir - instant radiance and hydration serum
    -mac mineralize charge water skin hydrating mist (this is NOT fix+ spray)
    -urban decay skindinavia dew me moisturizing makeup setting spray
    -fred farrugia lipstick sample creme lipstick + lipgloss in 05
    -fresh! sugar honey lip treatment
    -benefit high beam luminescent complexion enhancer
    -benefit gilded tangerine gold highlighter
    -urban decay 15th anniversary palette

    haul! i've been trying to find a good way to get a
    dewy more natural finish especially when i have a
    full face of make up on (foundation + the works)
    and i am really loving UD's dew me spray. it
    completely eliminates that powdery finish, and
    just gives my skin that wonderful dewy supple
    glow.

    the mac mineralized charged water is great too, though
    this isn't a really 'must have' but more of a 'nice to have'
    however, i think it's perfect for combination/more dry/thirsty
    skin, as it gives that nice supple finish and really destresses
    my skin. i use this after i wash my face, before i put on
    moisturizer.

    god bless this make up forever elixir--this is THE solution
    for dry undereyes (this product isn't skincare, more like
    a super prep for your eyes) it really instantly revives
    under my eyes, making concealer to go on MUCH easier.
    i've been using this alone on bareface days too, and it
    super smoothes out the bags under my eyes, making it
    look much more taut.. and young. HAHAHAHA.



    my favourittttte item of the haul, i finally got around
    to get the 15th anniversary pallette from urban decay.
    GORGEOUS. i love love love UD palettes, the way they
    organise the colours are just incredible, it's already
    sectioned off into quads, trios and duos. meaning,
    when you want to try different colour combinations,
    you can just use the neighbouring colour. it's genius
    the way it's arranged.

    i am LOVING the hotpink junkshow. so pretty with browns.

    fotos below from http://www.temptalia.com/urban-decay...hes-sneak-peek





    Midnight Rodeo, Tianted, Deeper


    Midnight 15, Junkshow, MIA


    Vanilla, Omen, Ace


    Flow, Evidence, Blackout


    Chase, Deep End, Half Truth
