Ninja came through for me and got me some Full N Soft.

For some reason I haven't seen this mascara in ages and I don't know why.. I do look when I'm in places where makeup is sold.

I always liked Maybelline "Professional" mascara. It had a curved wand.

Long gone now, sadly.
Wow...I just wanted to say that I feel honored that you took the time for me and my little ol' eyeliner thread. Don't know where you find the time! I didn't know you had all this going on!

I so busy runnin' allllllll over the place and ain't nobody chasin' me!
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.

I am fairly pale. I can wear Neutral Ivory in Loreal true match. I can also wear Colorstay Buff. What can I use to contour with? I know bronzer, but any suggestions on cheaper brands and color? I am confused!

What about using a darker shade of liquid foundation to contour? You dont have to use powder. Rimmel, Hard Candy...

A regular face powder? IME the color goes on too sheerly to work for contouring.

I like the UD pencils too. The texture is nice. I don't know if they go on as smoothly/easily as UD claims, but they are smooth. I haven't used my UD pencils in a while. But IIRC they're very soft, so the tip breaks easily. And after several seconds they dry down and don't budge, so blending/smudging is out after that.

Ok, now I'm on the hunt for a good foundation. I need one with good coverage to even out my skin tone and one that will last most of the day. Even when I set my foundation with powder, it tends to "disappear" within a couple of hours. Any suggestions?

^^^Sounds like you need a good face primer. If you have oily skin try using Milk of Magnesia. It's cheap.

I have really oily skin and I use bare minerals foundation and love it since my face is also sensitive, but I need a good primer that will keep me from looking like I'm sweating. Any suggestions?
^^^What have you tried? Doesnt Bare Minerals have a primer? Id rec Milk of Magnesia but that wouldnt work under mineral foundation.

What would be the best eyeliner/shadow/mascara colors to bring out my very dark hazel eyes?

Most pictures and descriptions of hazel eyes look light to me. Mine are quite dark, but they are definitely hazel, not brown. I'd love a few suggestions!

I'm a little worried about glittery shadows - might be allergic, so perhaps keep that in mind.

Thanks so much for ideas! It's great that you are willing to help all of us.
2/c and some 3A. Modified CG.
Protein sensitive
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Conditioners: Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner,
Deep condish: Curl Junkie Curl Rehab
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
