She's the Queen of Makeup Artistry.
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.

Thanks Phoenix! I've never considered Urban Decay. I'll look in Sephora. Purple plum sounds good too. Fun!

Hi Cympreni. I'm technologically challenged - not sure how to get a pic from my phone onto my computer. But I'm pleased you asked. I'll try to figure it out.
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: Experimenting with cones & sulfates while the dews are high.
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
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?

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 yes, I did mean foundation.

Thanks!!! (and your profile pic is gorgeous too!).

Any suggestions for putting mascara on lower lashes? My lashes are very thin and light. I finally found a mascara that is working well on my upper lashes, but I still have trouble with smudges and getting it on evenly on the bottom ones.

The easiest way is to hold a tissue under your lashes. Fold the tissue and just lay it under your lashes then apply your mascara. There is actually a product for this, a shield. But I think it is 10 bucks! No thanks. If you need something more rigid than a tissue, use an index card. You could even cut it to fit the shape of your eye.

Hold the mascara wand vertically and sweep it back and forth on your lashes. That should work.
