Humph.

I don't like this trend.

I'm not 12.
Ooooo shiney! ooo ooo ooo sparkley!! Magpie! magpie!

But yeah the sparkle/shimmer is over the top sometimes.

Have you ever done makeup for someone who's skin drinks up color? As in you apply a dark or colorful eyeshadow for example, and it just blends in/goes away? I don't know if I'm explaining myself well, or if it matters even. I've been 'solving' it by buying very dark, or very pigmented colors. (I have a lot of Loreal's HIP line).

I just feel like a weirdo.

I assume you're asking Phoenix, since if I tried that on myself, I'd look like a horror within seconds.

But I do remember reading that Dianne Carroll had skin like that.

Do you have an eyeshadow primer that you recommend?

Urban Decay Primer Potion and TooFaced Shadow Insurance are both good, esp the TFSI.

How often is it recommended to replace mascara?

I think this is also a makeup question:

Why is it that when I look in the mirror, my skin isn't shiny (as in oily), but when I view a photo of myself a moment later, it is?

Ah. So there is oil there, just not as noticeably?
I can only guess, not having seen you in person. But it is a common occurence.

Oh might Phoenix, please I need a recommendation for a mascara that's like Maybelline Full n Soft.. they don't seem to sell it anymore. I haven't found it in years. And I hate that Maybelline (Great Lash my azz) in the pink tube. That stuff is always gunky on me..

..help.

Bekkapoo, I've seen it at Target.

Want me to check for you the next time I'm there? I'm going in a few days.

Sorry to interrupt, P. Is there something like Full n Soft that you like?
Anything you'd recommend for really sensitive but also really oily skin? It would be nice to wear makeup and end up without the really red burning feeling in my skin, or break out for the next week. >.<

My skin is an oxymoron, I think.

And I'd be ever so grateful.
