The art of make-up is so intriguing to me and I enjoy improving my technique from any inspiration that I come across! Here I'd like to share all of that with you :)
a-fable-of-beauty asked: Totally disagree about your views on the revlon colour stay foundation. I practice makeup everyday and have tried many different foundations. Revlon is my favourite! It's heavy coverage so a little goes a long way, easy to blend, leaves a beautiful dewy effect on the skin. The colour match isn't perfect, but how many foundations give a perfect match? I wouldn't rule it out because what might not be right for you, it will work on other skin types. I'd go far as to say it's a dupe for MAC sudiofix
This is true! I tried it because of all the many great things I hear about it, but it didn’t just work for me. I’ve tried way too many foundations I can count so I give my opinions on products because I know there are other people out there who have my skin type and the same frustrations with foundation— especially drugstore. I understand nobody has to take my word for it, but why not try help them out with their search a little bit?@1 year ago with 6 notes
I purchased Revlon Colorstay the other day…it was okay… :/
It looked alright when I first put it on (except the color-Medium Beige- was too pink for me) but it just didn’t hold up very long. I looked okay from a distance but up close I looked like a greasy cakey MESS. I really wanted to love it :(
I just purchased Cover Girl Outlast 3 in 1 foundation and WOWIEEE COVERGIRL I used to hate most of their products. But this foundation looks BEAUTIFUL so far. I’ve had it on for about an hour now and my skin looks a lot healthier and not cakey whatsoever.
I applied 1-1 1/2 pumps to my face with a dense, flat top brush from my Costco brush set and I haven’t even powdered yet. No primer or concealer either. My face gets really oily within an hour of application but this…woah. I was going back and forth between 825 and 832, so I bought both. I found 825 was a tad pink for me so I gave that to my mom and the 832 seems like a pretty good match.
I’m NC20 in MAC, Shade 3.0 in Urban Decay Naked, and 118 in MUFE HD.
I paid $12 for one bottle and got the other 50% off at CVS (I like them because you can exchange opened makeup if the color is wrong as long as you have a receipt.) It provides med/full coverage, leaning more on the full side. It’s a healthy matte finish, still letting my skin show through while covering my MANY dark acne scars and filling the majority of my pores (I think an absolutely poreless, flawless look isn’t the best because it can appear pretty fake). I love how this has a pump as opposed to Revlon Colorstay. Smells like typical Cover Girl makeup but it’s not a huge issue to me because of how good this looks.
I know I’ve only had it on a short time…about an hour or so..but just the fact that I don’t need a layer of powder to keep it from sliding off- that’s almost too good to be true for me.
I have combination, sensitive, acne-prone skin (*tear*). I get a lot oilier once it starts to get warmer.
So far this is better than UD Naked; I paid 30 bucks for UD and this stuff is less than half the price!
I buy all my makeup with my own money and I have never been offered compensation of any sort to do any kind of review.
FYI This is not my final review whatsoever, I still have to see how it holds up throughout my 12 hour days at school, my 8 hour shifts, and what it looks like powdered and everything. I’ll keep you guys posted on this foundation! :)@1 year ago with 41 notes
kr00vy asked: I don't like my lips feeling dry at all, so I prime with carmex, blot it, use a lip liner, thickly in clear or red then top with my lipstick. Its much less maintenance when you've eaten and it doesn't feather in my experience. I wear red everyday. :)@1 year ago with 15 notes
swimgo-od asked: Hi, my red lipstick always feathers, what can I do to stop that from happening?
Put a little concealer on the lips, then line with a red liner and fill them in, then go over with your lipstick, blot, go over again, and blot again (put a dab of lip balm or gloss over it if it gets to dry). If you want an extra step, put a thin tissue over your lips and then dust powder over the tissue!@1 year ago with 25 notes
banillaface asked: Can you post more pics of makeup looks?
I will when I have time to spare! I know I’ve been MIA for days at a time but I am a full time student as well as working 30 hours a week so I can get pretty lazy with this thing.@1 year ago with 1 note
iambooradley asked: Also- if the tissue and powder trick tends to dilute the colour or leave any lighter powder on top, you could try a blush or shadow in a similar colour instead!@1 year ago with 1 note
neckweeep asked: Hi~ I have a question. When you wear red lipstick, is it fine if you wear the wing eyeliner as well or does that look too tacky? I usually wear just mascara so it won't look so heavy but I'm curious to know about this. Hopefully you can get back to me soon c: thanks ~
Red lipstick and winged liner were made for each other :)@1 year ago with 25 notes
