Makeup

For the ladies.

I hate makeup, I only wear it when I go out and I only wear the bare minimals to work and daily duties (a little bottom eyeliner, face powder and lip balm). When I go out I wear eyeliner (top and bottom), face powder, blush and lipstick. I hate mascara, its so disgusting and I dont wear eyeshadow because it never looks good on me. Obviously I dont know how to apply it (yeah how old am I?? )

So who wants to teach me

I'm branching out, I want to try eyeshadow but I have no idea how to put it on. Do you put the darker color on the crease? Or right above the eyelashes up to the crease? etc. etc. Pics would help too

Covergirl or Maybelline makes an eyeshadow with 4 different hues of shades. They are labled, crease, lid, corner and brow. I just changed from wearing a few colors to wearing browns and I didn't know how to do it but this worked really good.

The medium color usually goes in the lid and the darker on the outer corner and lower lid.

I swear by this eyeshadow kit, you seriously can't mess up. It comes with a diagram and instructions telling you exactly where to use each color and the shades are neutral so they look good on almost everyone.

It's a little expensive but it lasts forever and the concealer alone is worth the price.

Sephora is a really good brand. What some people always told me (and what I usually do when I wear eyeshadow), is the darkest colour the closest to your eye (so at the bottom of your eyelid), then lighter shades above that, but not too high on your eyelid. In the corner of your eyes (closest to the nose) not too dark either, but a more lighter shade. It does depend on what 'shape' your eyes are though. Below are some images of how to apply eyeshadow for different types of eyes. Hope this makes sense at all

I've heard nothing but good things about this kit, but am always too cheap to get it for myself. I always think I mess up my eyeshadow half the time anyway so maybe now is the time to go for it.

Sephora, period

(Sorry, couldn't let a post about makeup slide without having a mini Sephora droolfest. )

Thanks for the pics! That helps.

Yeah I might bid unless it goes over retail price by the time the auction is ending.

Go to the Bobbi Brown counter at your local department store and they'll give you a free lesson (other companies also do it but I like Bobbi Brown because they go for a more natural look and their stuff isn't super-expensive).

Do you know how hard it is to pay attention to someone on the phone when you scroll by a post like THIS?
