    I use noxema to clean my skin. (My skin is pale and sensitive, but not prone to oil or a lot of dryness or pimples.) It cleans and refreshes and makes a nice complexion. I normally wouldn't recommend a shampoo because I just found one that I liked but I'm finding the Bamboo products to be helping my hair heal from all the years of blonde. My hair is looking more healthy and natural. Multivitamin, water. Minimal makeup. Be 26 years old. And I come out alright some days.

    Oh and last winter I went tanning and had to get rid of my very first brown spot. I caught it right away, (and am not tanning anymore, it just takes one visible sign of aging!) Anyway, I used this Garnier Fructis cream that was supposed to remove spots, (from the grocery store.) And it worked fine. Given that it was probably just a glorified freckle on my young skin to begin with- but it's a product to think about at least.

    I LOVE noxema. I was just thinking to myself that I need to buy some more. Seriously. That stuff is godlike. I like to splash ice cold water on my face in the winter, lather on the noxema, and rinse with more ice cold water. It makes me feel like one with my ice cube nature.

    I definitely need to keep that in mind! I am going to browse the website now. Yay distractions.

    I'm noticing an interesting trend of NT women up in here.

    you can actually use your face primer and dab it on your eyelids.

    eye primers are used as a base for eyeshadow because it's
    suppose to extend the wear and help curb the eye shadow
    from creasing: that's when the colours move off your lids
    and get bunched up into the crease due to the oils on your lids.


    oily lids and creased eyeshadow.

    the urban decay primers are popular because it does
    just that, your eyeshadow doesn't move. when you
    apply it, it's very easy to spread on your lids and it
    just disappears onto your lids and feels 'light'

    (@OrangeAppled how do you like the urban
    decay primer potion on your lids? do you find it
    easy to apply? did you use any other
    kinds of primers before?)

    in the beauty blogs, a lot of people talk about the
    elf eye primer to be just as good for staying power.
    the main difference is that, it's a bit thicker to spread
    on your eyelids, and just doesn't feel as light as the
    UD. i've personally never used it, but i know it's popular
    because it's only $3 (versus the $17? $18? UD primer)
    and said to be as effective

    so that it's not a harsh line but instead bleeds into one another.

    i also always dust my base colour on my brush when i'm softening
    the colours on the crease line. for this i use a stila #9. the brush
    type is called an 'all over blend brush' elf has one called 'Blending Eye Brush'
    http://www.eyeslipsface.co.uk/product~prodID~45.htm

    vs
    stila vs elf

    for blending on the lid itself i use a smaller brush.
    i actually really love the dual ended brush that came
    with my bobbi brown nude on nude palette


    the left brush is the eyeshadow brush.
    the right brush is the eyeliner brush.

    so you can see, the brush head is very small.
    i took these with my iphone so it's not as clear
    as i like them to me, but it'll do for size comparison.


    bobbi brown dual ended eyeshadow/eyeliner brush vs stila #9.


    bobbi brown eyeshadow brush vs stila #9


    bobbi brown eyeliner brush vs stila #9


    the bobbi brown dual brush heads are the same size as the
    standalone bobbi brown brushes. the brushes alone are
    eyeliner brush ($25) eyeshadow brush ($28). bobbi brown
    single eyeshadow pans are $20 each. so this is why i really
    don't mind splurging on higher end palettes because it really
    is more cost efficient and higher quality..

    i don't think they have the nude on nude palette anymore, but
    just to illustrate: the smoky eye palette is $45: brush + 4 colours


    shadow options palette is $60: brush +8 colours


    i can go off on tangents forever <3 <3

Sometimes I just want to shave them off and then paste on fake ones, lol...
    i don't like waxing my eyebrows at all.
    if i need them professionally shaped,
    i'll get them threaded. i think they do
    a more thorough job. and honestly?
    i get my brows done professionally
    like only once a year.



    but getting shaped is all based on personal
    preference. it's the upkeep. that's the pain
    in the ass. i'm severely lazy. so i like minimal
    effort in grooming my eyebrows. i use an
    eyebrow razor. (ulta sells them)



    i tried googling for a close up on the razor
    blade but my search terms skills must suck.
    because i can't find one. but if you look closely,
    the razor is smooth and flat. it has little teeth.
    which acts as little 'stoppers' so you can have
    a very precise uh.. shave? you can literally do
    one hair at a time. and it's easy, you just run
    the blade over anything that pokes out.

    these razors last on me for a long time. i'm
    really lazy so sometimes i'll be like oh! see
    a stray hair after i already have my make up
    on and i'll just shave right onto the make up.
    the makeup does gather on the blades and
    i just wipe it off with a tissue (sometimes
    not, lazy mmhmm). and they last me for
    3 months before i throw them out?

    i imagine if you used it on a clean face, it'd
    last longer.

    mac 'eye brows' ?

    i really like their 'brow set' since
    my eyebrows grow upwards and
    downwards so they're pointing in
    different directions. i use this
    to make them behave. you can
    use the maybelline clear great
    lash mascara to make them
    behave also, but it just takes
    longer to dry. (use the clear
    mascara first on brows, let
    dry, then apply brow makeup)
    if you do it after, it may shift
    the colours.

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

As you are seeing, it is more complex than just, "OOOOOO GOOOOD I JUST LOVE MAKING MY FACE SO PRETTTTY!"

    That type of complexity actually grabs my interest more, I want to understand how it all works together. it's just building practical competence (as well as figuring out what works best with my face) that is the difficult aspect.
