You introduced me to LASplash, and now I have a question for you. I have fallen in love with some of their loose e/s colors and wonder what you use as a base for them. LASplash makes it seem that you have to use their shadow sealer and I just don't believe that (plus I can't find any except at cherry culture and it was out of stock). Do you have any of their loose shadows? What do you use as a base?

Any slightly sticky base would work: cream shadows, stick or jar concealers, or the NYX eyeshadow base. The LASplash sealer works well too, although it's definitely not the only option.

here's another great brow tutorial. i used spike and concealers similar to how she does and i love my brows. i get the extra hairs threaded off and i use castor oil (when i remember) to fill in my brows as much as possible.

Update: The concealer has started to crease some. But I have oily lids. So if you don't have oily lids, you should be fine.

TNB, have you ever tried Origins Oil-Free? It's a liquid that has some kind of clay (?) in it to absorb oil. It'll take me from a grease slick to matte in 1.5 seconds once I apply it. I've also done my eye makeup with a primer, etc. like you do, but once I'm done with it, I apply it over the shadows. The shimmer doesn't go away, it just absorbs the oil and can keep my shadows from creasing most of the time.

Correction: It is called Zero Oil. The mattifier in the liquid is apparently silicates from what I'm reading on the site. Picture below of what I'm talking about.

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.

Thanks for the tip! Interesting, no, I've never tried it. So it goes right over your eye makeup? And it doesn't wipe the makeup off? Pricey, I bet?

Not too pricey. It's $14.50 for the bottle, which is .64 oz. It's lasted me quite some time. I only need 2 drops of it to get rid of the grease on my forehead, nose and chin.

I've actually done eyeshadow both ways, underneath as the oil eradicator, then putting the primer and eye shadows on. I've also done it on top of everything. You pat it on so it doesn't smear anything you've done. I think it just depends on what you find works best for you.

Boots has a version of this in Target for like $7 I think. I always pick it up and put it back because I'm not sure how it would perform on top of makeup.

A couple of years ago I bought an 'emergency' Studio 35 (?) kabuki brush similar to the one in the Kirkland/Borghese kit for about $5 at Walgreen's, of all places, and I'm amazed at how good that thing is! I was on a trip and had accidentally left some of my brushes at home and I bought it as a multi-purpose brush to use in a pinch.

It's real hair of some sort, though who knows what? Doesn't shed at all, works great. It's just as good as one of similar shape and size that I paid nearly $50 for.
2C/3A/3B - modified CG - fairly fine now, normal/low porosity/normal elasticity

Current Main Rotation: MG217 medicated or Aim2Health 'poos for scalp, Elucence cond., Spiral Solutions Protein & Deeply Decadent Cond., CJCCCC reg or lite,CJ Pattern Pusha,, Giovanni LA Hold Hair Spritz + lots more, sporadically

HG Method: Super Soaker + Smasters-ing, brief upside down diffusing w/360o diffuser then clips/clamps & air dry. Newly gray - stopped my henna glosses!

Any tips for makeup application for someone who has droopy eyes? Like my eyes turn down at the end, not hooded eyes. When I look at my eyes, the bottom lid seems to curve slightly, but in pictures it looks straight or turned down at the outside. And when I smile I kind of look like an anime illustration where their eyes look like upside down smiles, too. Fat face, fat cheeks=squinty eyes.
