I just got the 6 pack of Berrisome's lip tint, which I'm super excited to try out (but probably won't for a while). I also grabbed the piggy carbonated clay mask but that's more of a skincare thread type thing

I bought this a while back too, they last pretty long! The peach one won't show up at all, there's literally no colour when you peel it off. Some are hard to move around on the lip.

Bubble pink has the easiest control in my opinion, it's the smoothest to move around. For berry red and sexy red, keep them on longer than the 10-15 minutes if you can, mine would always smudge after peeling off like it didn't dry all the way.

yeah, memebox upsells stuff so bad. the six pack on Amazon is under $20. These things are pretty cool, but definitely apply it with a brush, not the applicator tip (might be stating the obvious here but i didn't know when i got them).

has anyone tried the eyebrow equivalent? i'm curious (and thrilled it comes in a light brown color), but not totally sold because if it's anything like the lip tint things, it'll be really hard to make a proper eyebrow shape.

Any opinions of fresh brand from Sephora. Mostly on their skincare line?

Also any suggestions for a non greasy facial SPF. Preferably higher as I live somewhere where it's always sunny. I have Josie marans bht it's just way to greasy. I have a sample of fresh but I'm worried to try it because it's tinted and my skin color is probably too light. I tested cover FX "invisible" sunscreen and it felt perfect but it's only SPF 20?

I am 100% serious and need all the advice, gulls.

I landed a seasonal position at sephora in colour consultation (i'll be suggesting/applying makeup directly on customers). Everything I know about makeup i've learned from this thread and I've been wearing it regularly for less than a year.

My makeup routine is basically BB cream, light/nude eye shadows and a highlighter/blush palette. Sometimes eyeliner, mascara and lipstick. All from the drug store. I wasn't expecting to get the job and I don't know how my drug store quality face fooled them but now i'm stuck working there at least 4 months.

Any gulls ever work at sephora or cosmetics retail in general?

Hey gulls. I'm looking for any recommendations for an eye shadow palette with some nice browns/golds/other warm and shiny colours for fall. So far I have my eye on theBalm's NUDE 'tude palette. Pic realted, the swatches on their website look really nice.

I really like theBalm and I have the palette you mentioned. The black and dark brown shades are really good for liner, and there are some good mattes in there too.

Looking for some BB cream reccomendations for maximum coverage. I had some Peripera brand but the seller I got it from doesn't it stock it anymore so I'm looking to get an alternative because I'm almost out.
Looking for a lighter shade that's good for covering blemishes. The one I got now is a darker beige and I have to coat on a lot of pale powder to balance it out so I don't look like I've smeared mud on my face but all the super pale BB Creams I've tried don't cover blemishes well.

Thanks for any suggestions, anons!

I really love Skinfood's Peach Sake BB.
It has foundation-level coverage but is so light you genuinely can't feel it (I'm incredibly neurotic about feeling stuff on my face. Haven't used anything in three weeks because I'm waiting for my restock of this to arrive.) Goes on liquid and dries to a satiny, not-too-dewy-not-too-matte finish.

The lighter shade, at least, is yellow/neutral toned.

I tried breaking out my old Western BB creams the other day because I was going out and figured something was better than nothing. I have NO idea how I ever used to wear this stuff.
The Maybelinne went on like butter, with zero coverage and a gross paint smell, and the Rimmel one dried like orange chalk immediately. Awful.

I have a few of Canmake's fleur blushers and highlighters. They're a bit chalky so beware, and the highlighters can be a bit 'white' instead of glowy. However the packaging is super cute, they're really cheap, and last a long time. 4/5 recommend, especially for the price range. You sometimes have to build up the colors a little, especially with the fleur blushers.

I also love their contouring powders, have used up 4-5 pans in the last 3 years no lie.

Thanks for the suggestion! I'd heard good things about that brand and I'd rather balance out a bit of yellow than dark beige.
I got desperate enough to try domestic BB cream and it was all watery and smelled awful and did absolutely nothing. I have no idea how anyone can like it.

First of all you should take care of your skin - cleanse it and moisturize it properly, it will help control the oil production. As for what works, it really is individual - I suggest looking for partial coverage [something you can layer if you want more] and in general getting good quality foundation instead of drugstore brands. That's the one thing you shouldn't cheap out on, maybe mascara too.

Are there any shades lighter than Etude House's light beige? I don't know if it just oxidizes horridly on me, or if it honestly is just a shade too dark.

Currently weighing between The Balm's Meet Matt(e) pallets (probably the Trimony one) and Kat Von D's Shade and Light eye pallet. Both seems good as far as quality of the shades go, and what has me weighing towards KVD is the variety of shades as well as the clean division of warm/cool/neutral (as someone who's still really dumb about colour warmth), however it's marginally more expensive than The Balm, with less product for the money. Also, I'm not one to wear makeup on the daily so I'm not sure I'll actually be able to make good use out of the extra shadows... On the other hand, Shade and Light seems like it'd be really good to get me to actually practice on working with make up, and it definitely seems more beginner friendly in having a very user friendly layout.

just focus on the smaller things, like use all brown eyeliner and mascara, do you eyebrows in the same curved shape, choose a terracotta nude like she has for lips and eyeshadow. If you're alright with contouring maybe try to angle your jaw line a bit too.

I have their HD concealers (not the color correcting one) and they're fucking amazing. I use 02 for highlighting and 07 for contouring, just swipe and blend it out. No foundation, no BB cream. It's beautiful, even coverage, dries quickly, not cakey, doesn't flake. I bought the Clinique CC on recommendation by Goss and the texture is great, but I live in a tropical climate and at the end of the day it just melts off my face all patchy. I even use UD setting spray with both, and the NYX HD concealers stay on all damn day and the Clinique still melts.

The only downside is it dries relatively quickly. So apply and blend in small circular motions with a dense face brush or BB. Like the artiste ones or an HD foundation brush (mine's from Bobbi Brown). If you think one application doesn't have enough coverage, just wait for it to dry and apply a second coat. It's really buildable.

I don't have the color correcting ones. I tried them in the store and they're really pigmented, like a little goes a long way. Actually applied too much of the tester and got some green under eyes whoops. Super recommend it for the formula though, and it's really inexpensive. I own a lot of high end foundations and concealers (Bobbi Brown, MAC, Anna Sui) and this blows them all out of the water in terms of wearability. I'd like to try the make-up forever HD collection too, but this is damn perfect.

FYI I have dry/sensitive Asian skin.

Anon here that was looking for recommendations for full coverage BB creams a while back.

I was going through my makeup and tossing out my shit BB cream imitation products (looking at you, Walmart brands) that I tried out of desperation and I found my stash of Naturactor I used solely for cosplay!

I don't think I've seen this brand mentioned but it's fantastic for covering just about everything and making your skin look flawless. It's a bit pricey though. I think the three-set I got cost upwards of $40?

I have the foundation itself (which is tiny) and then the pressed powder and a big thing of loose powder. The only bad thing I have to say about it is that the loose powder is very messy to use so it generally sits there and I used the compact powder instead.

The foundation itself comes in a tiiiiiny little container and you use a damp sponge to apply it but with one layer I can see a major difference in my skin and with a second layer pretty much everything is concealed.

I found a before & after pic of someone who used it and I can say it's totally accurate.

It comes in a ton of colors (which is fantastic compared to two color only BB creams) and it's worth the price but I do have to use the foundation sparingly since it's so small I'm in constant worry it'll be used up in a months time.

But yeah, 10/10 recommend Naturactor but I'd skip the loose powder in the set and get the compact/pressed powder instead.

Not much point showing us your hand, anon. Try to get us a picture of your jawline/ cheek in natural light.

To be honest, though, your best bet is going to a make up counter and trying some on part of your face. My suggestion with that is to try it on your (clear of make up) jaw line, and then go and look at it in natural light. There's no point doing it on your hand, as your hand will be a different colour to your face, and the harsh lighting in the make up store won't give you a clear idea of how well it matches.

Just go for neutral lips or lip tint. Drawn on lips when you have none looks weird because you don't have the actual tissue there, most people's lips protrude at least a little so drawing them on looks weirdly flat.

You can use the old makeup artist trick of putting a bunch of loose powder under your eyes when you're using loose pigments or eyeshadows with a lot of fall out. Powder up, do your eye makeup, and then whisk the powder (and fallen eye product) away with a fluffy brush. Makes it easy to clean the fallout away, but if you're not careful with this method I've found it can make the makeup under your eyes cake up a little.

I think the easiest way to start with lipsticks is trying out some regular ones in a tube, looking for a shade that is close to your natural lip colour. Knowing your undertones will also be helpful in finding flattering lip colours.
I like tones close to my natural lip shade and darker shades because I have quite full lips and going lighter or too bright can make me look like I should be in a porno.
I generally use mattes and unusual colours when I'm going out, which does require a good base, so do the sugar scrub/moisturise thing first then do all-over liner + apply my lipstick over the top.
I also like long-wearing lipstick and have a couple of colourpop's Lippie Stix for every day wear, and Revlon Colorstay Overtime. They can be quite drying but luckily I am not prone to dry lips provided I stay well hydrated. In terms of crazy colours I recently got some samples from MBA because I didn't want to splash out on OCC Lip Tar for a colour I'd only wear occasionally.

I've gone on a major journey to find a non-Aluminum deodorant that actually works, and nothing has fit the bill yet. The closest I got was with the La Vanila line. I've tried the original vanilla, grapefruit, and passionfruit. Grapefruit was the best of the 3. I used them for over a month straight when I tested them. I would apply out of the shower and within 4-5 hours I would need to reapply. My armpits smelled very stale. I don't mind reapplying periodically, but it's like the product gunked up and started smelling weird.

There are recipes online to make your own deodorant with baking soda and coconut oil. I have yet to try it, but I've heard good things as long as your skin isn't sensitive to baking soda.

Aluminum blocks the sweat glands from sweating, hence the word "anti-perspirant". You will still sweat with natural deodorant, because deodorant is only meant to eliminate the smell. So if your sweat doesn't smell, go for it. I don't get stains on my clothes one way or the other.

If your BB cream isn't oil controlling then you may well need primer as well as BB cream. I tend not to use primer unless I'm going to be outside because the majority of my work day is indoors and air-conditioned. In terms of everyday use I'm used to doing sunscreen + BB cream (since if I put enough BB cream on for the SPF to be effective it looks caked on, and I don't think the windows at work have specific UVA blocking coating) + powder so I guess primer doesn't seem like much more to me.

I use Tom's because antiperspirants irritate my skin and have never had problems with yellow staining, but I also tend to wear darker colors. You can get the stains out with a soak in Oxyclean or white vinegar.

Have you tried men's deodorant? Most men's deodorants don't contain antiperspirants, so they typically wouldn't have aluminum in them. If you don't mind having a manly scent it might be worth a try.

i got some elf brushes since walmart started carrying them (in canada) and i honestly hated them. the fibers feel really harsh against my skin and some of them were visibly damaged (like wavy), not to mention the shedding. honestly i used a kabuki brush and a blush brush from claires for like two years and they felt WAY better than the elf brushes.

i'm a poorfag too when it comes to brushes (I can't justify dropping a hundred bucks on half a brush set, I bought a $40 sephora brush a while back and it sucked ass...) but cheap brushes are just hit and miss.
I bought a $13 brush set from f21 a couple weeks ago for the sole reason that they were cute and i just wanted them to sit around and look nice, but the foundation brush was SO nice. the fibers were really soft and felt good against my skin, and was really dense and worked with my foundation too.

Also whats a good mixing medium to use shadows as liners? Just applying them over a creme shadow makes them transfer to my upper lid and I’ve never really used a product like that so I don't know what to look for.

Fuck, I'm really tempted. I'm always a sucker for colorful stuff- I have the Too Faced teddy bear brushes mainly because I loved the pastel pink that the handles were, even though I know its shallow. I had my makeup done once by a tarte makeup artist and the brushes were super nice, but just kind of generic looking, so I didn't opt to buy them. Did they announce a price yet?

I use that as my daily foundation and I really like it! It has pretty light coverage which sounds like it'd be good for you. Plus its like $8 per bottle so if it doesn't work out it wasn't too much off.

Picked up Nyx's Copenhagen as a dupe of sorts for Jeffree Star's Unicorn Blood. It was my first time purchasing a Nyx product and I'm fairly satisfied with my purchase, it managed to stay on for ages and even sustained while eating and drinking. If I had a single caveat it would be that it's somewhat patchy, but that may be due to my application. It's also not quite the same shade as Unicorn Blood so I guess the hunt continues. Still a pretty colour, though.

What other Nyx products would you seagulls recommend?

I haven't tried these myself, but my friend swears by their lip balms. I usually prefer my usual 3 pack chapstick so I never got around to it but I might try it the next time I stop by ulta.

I love all of the Nyx lip creams (my favorite shade is Cannes). I dilute the product just a little with water so the application goes smoother. I don't know if that'll help with the patchiness.

For the redness on my cheeks, I use Nyx's green liquid primer. It's lightweight and it gives a subtle pearly glow to my face.
Granted, I haven't used any other color correcting primers, but Nyx hasn't given me any problems so I'm not complaining.

I like Unicorn Lashes' handle more, but the brushes look far, far cheaper quality.

The idea isn't entirely original, so I don't really care that much. Tarte's will 100% be better quality, though, that's for sure.

Their ultra pearl mania pigments are really nice. They are especially stunning when applied wet. The $5 powder blushes have excellent payoff for the price.

I also like the round lipstick in "Strawberry Milk". It's a close dupe of a YSL lipstick shade I love. It lasts much longer for a cheaper price.

I've heard nothing but rave reviews about their matte and dewy setting sprays, but I have no experience with those.

I don't care for their new formula eyeshadow singles. They just don't have the color payoff the old ones did. I also didn't like the Doll Eye mascara, but my eyelashes are stubborn and don't cooperate so ymmv

Nevermind, just read something on reddit about the bristles looking fuller and for Tarte's brushes to be better for cream foundation in addition to powder.
But I don't use brushes to apply liquid foundation, so I think I should be good. UL's are just more aesthetically pleasing to me.

I have a huuuge collection of NYX products, they're one of my most reliable brands. Some of my favorites from NYX that I use for cosplay are the colored mascaras, prismatic eyeshadows (mermaid is amazing), macaron lipsticks (pic related), soft matte lip creams, liquid suedes, and the butter glosses. I use a ton more from NYX, but usually just on a day to day basis.

I tend to use a night-time anti-perspirant, and then top up during the day with a deoderant (not anti-perspirant). My armpits are dry and look a lot healthier now than they did when I was using anti-perspirant every day.

I use a pinch of baking soda mixed with water or coconut oil.
Mix until it's not so gritty and dab/pat it on, no issue with putting clothes on when it's still wet.
Just do yourself a favour if you go this route, don't apply directly after shaving, and if you irritate your skin by rubbing it in or something, moisturizers will help.

I've stopped using stick deodorant permanently. I have never had a problem with stains and it, of course, contains no heavy metals. My family had a history off brwast cancer, and there are some things like improperly fit bras and long term use of aluminum deodirants that may increase risk. I started it for that reasoon, but it's been a godsend.

Not sure if this counts as makeup but i'll give it a try:
What Directions dye would be the best for Joker green hair or should i mix some? Gonna bleach to near white blond so its gonna to have a really bright foundation.

Irl Leto has very neon green hair. In the movie its probably darker due to colorcorretion.

Directions Spring Green seems to be quite Neon/Lime and Apple Green seems to be to much blue.
Should i just use blue, yellow and black(?) to mix my own green? Or apple and spring?

almost all setting sprays i own suggest to spray in an X and T motion across your face. i go pretty generous with my spray because it'll make my powders look less cakey and itll make the makeup last longer. i usually either wait until my mascara dries to spray, or just spray before mascara, since i have a problem with my lower lash mascara transferring to my face
