OT: make up and girly girl stuff

^^Lipstains are good I was just suggesting things you probably already have. Putting on a lipstick then blotting with tissue acts like a lipstain too.

omg, best lipstain? hahaha


red or dark pink food coloring applied to clean lips with a Qtip.

if you're feeling fancy you can tone it with the yellow, orange or purple food color.

unfortunately, not very portable tho. OTOH it stays on like forever.

Does there exist a lipgloss that does not rub off easily? I use a CG gloss but I get tired of having to reapply everytime I drink something...

I've gone through a million foundations and have really had to search for the perfect one, especially since I have super oily skin that's also sensitive to dry patches because of eczema. Off the bat, I'd say go for Make Up For Ever's Mat Velvet (I'm #70, Caramel) or Face & Body (#12, Caramel) or Bobbi Brown's Natural Finish (I#6, Golden).

No matter what, I ALWAYS wear a primer to keep my foundation from slipping off my face and, more importantly, from oxidizing. I use a MUFE product for this too, but I think any will do. Also use a translucent finishing powder. The Ben Nye stuff is good.

As for polish, I'm a nail junkie and give myself a new manicure no less frequently than every five days. I like OPI, but I find China Glaze, Color Club, and Misa have more exciting colors. I also use Essie, Orly, Revlon, Zoya, Essence, Savvy and others. (American Apparel also has a surprisingly good polish that covers in one coat. They're all cremes, though, so if you want glitters or shimmers, you may have to go elsewhere.)

I find the key to keeping a manicure fresh involves a number of steps:

1. Make sure all oils are gone and that nails are dry before application. I use either pure acetone or rubbing alcohol to clean my nail beds.

2. Use a good base coat, preferably a sticky one. I use Nail Magic, but experiment to find what's best for you. Don't try the Orly one though; it sucks.

3. Wrap the nail tip. I use a little bit of polish on the brush to swipe horizontally over the tip of the nail before I do my initial coat. I also find that thin, even coats last longer than thick ones.

4. A good top coat. I'm lazy, so I kinda forgo this by using a quick drying one, Out the Door in particular, but a good top coat helps, especially when applied every three days or so to keep the manicure fresh. I used to use Seche Vite, but I found that it didn't play nicely with big-three free polishes and would cause my manicure to peel in large sheets.

Now, I know that the good polishes are expensive, but I buy them online from discount retailers and end up saving a lot this way. (I can get Essie for about $2.50, OPI for about $3.00, and China Glaze for less than $3.00.) The key is to order about six at a time to justify the shipping costs.

So all in all it lasts pretty well for me.

I also use them to mix and make my own colors. They are great for that.

Oh but be careful, the consistency is pretty thin and runny, but still great tars.
I'm super-excited to get them. I ordered some Sugarpill shadows too.

I'm new to this whole make up thing but I recently started use bare minerals and I love it! Its so easy and it takes me like 5 minutes to apply. My skin is very oily and prone to acne and super sensitive and like the commercials say it makes my skin better. I also use their new skin care line too and its the best thing for me since sliced bread!

I'm trying to get some Atelier Maquillage, but I'm not even sure they ship to the US.

Yeah, high-end shadows should definitely be more pigmented than what those Tarte e/s appear to be. But you can still use them and get more intense color out of them. Just apply a thin layer of creamy concealer (not liquid or any concealer that dries completely) on your lids after you prime them. Then pat on the e/s - don't sweep. It really intensifies the color.

OTOH maybe it's a way of doing 'safe' day colors?
