Eyeshadow is just my blush - Cover Girl Cheekers in Brick rose.
Eyeliner - Avon liquid waterproof in a dark blue shade.
Mascara - Diorshow waterproof in black. So not worth the money. Back to my cheap Cover Girl Professional waterproof.
Lip color - Wet N Wild lip crayon in a deep shimmery pink.
On my face is BeautiControl wet/dry powder foundation and the above blush.

This is pretty much what I wear every single day.

Everything is the same as above except for mascara which is Covergirl Exact Eyelights in Black Sapphire.

No pics for me either .

This is my usual go-to everyday line-up that's most flattering regardless of what I'm wearing and mostly lasts pretty much until I remove it, up to 18-20 hours:
  • Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle & UV Damage Corrector
  • Topix Replenix All Trans Retinol Eye Repair Cream
  • SuperMatte Antishine mattifier on nose and, weirdly, browbones - Without it, even with waterproof mascara I get little spots where my lashtips touch there since my skin's so oily.
  • Lancome Effacernes concealer in Beige, as needed instead of foundation - on and off for over 20 years
  • Stila Custom Color self-adjusting blush
  • Maybelline Define-A-Brow in Medium Brown - a good, neutral, taupey color in a fine-tipped automatic pencil. Fills in sparse areas as natural-looking as possible.
  • L'Oreal dark rose-colored shadow in crease and corners (limited edition breast cancer awareness set with no color names). This and the next two shadows make my hazel eyes look a lot more green
  • Victoria Jackson Pink ES set - very lightest color on browbone (barely a peachy pink, not noticeable but it brightens up my eyes and face) - used for 20 years
  • Covergirl Perfect Point Plus eye liner in Espresso - again about 20 years
  • Sonia Kushak eye shadow in a dark burgundy/raisin color smudged over the liner - the container's so worn that the name's gone
  • Maybelline Waterproof Lash Discovery Mascara in Very Black - about 10 years. Love the little brush, and it lasts very well without my oily skin smudging it or crying it off due to year-round allergies
  • Covergirl Outlast Double Lipshine in 250 Spring Wine - blotted for a natural-looking rosy/raspberry color and with regular Outlast topcoat, not the wet-looking gloss on the other end of the tube - only use that in a pinch. I've used variations of Outlast almost exclusively since it first came out at least 10 years ago because, if applied correctly, it stays put and looking just-applied until I take it off, unless I eat something really greasy. This is my ideal color because I can adjust the intensity so that it looks pretty natural without clashing with anything I wear
I have a LOT of other stuff and brands in the rotation, but these are my HG's that I use most often, can slap on most quickly and accurately, are most reliably flattering and, so, I keep going back to.
The ones I've used so long work better for me than similar products in other often more exclusive lines - I've tried them all and still have and sometimes use many of them.
2C/3A/3B - modified CG - med./fine, normal/low porosity/normal elasticity

Current Main Rotation: MG217 medicated or Aim2Health 'poos for scalp, YTCarrots or Elucence cond., Spiral Solutions Protein & Deeply Decadent Cond., CJCCCC reg or lite, KCCC, 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!

So as I said before, I wear the same makeup almost all the time. I have loved the dark pink Wet n Wild lip crayons for years and buy them in multiples on Ebay since they have been discontinued. I love the color and it lasts and lasts.
But I've been looking for a nice red shade for a long long time. I've tried dozens of shades and brands and types. But they all seem too bright, too orange, too dark, too shimmery, too much like gloss, too thick, too drying, etc. On lunch hour I was shopping at Big Lots and saw some Revlon Colorstay Lipcolor on sale for $3.50 and decided to try one call Divine Port Wine. I really really like it. Nice color, nice texture. And since I got back from lunch I've had 2 people tell me how nice I look (has to be the lipstick since my hair, clothes, etc are all the same as usual.)!
So ignore the ugly wrinkles and such. I look better from far away. : )

cympreni nice eye(s)! so do you apply meow shadows wet or dry? i have some from the egyptian line and the colors are great but i'm not sure i'm applying them right, i get a lot of fallout and that bugs me because it's wasting product and messy to clean up around the eye.

jeepcurlygurl that's a nice lip color! oh and we all look better far away

The shadow dry, for eyeliner wet. I find that blowing the excess off the brush works better than tapping. Sometimes I do both if I have a lot on my brush. I don't put much on my brush at all and just build up the color. I still get a little bit of fallout but not very much.
Cympreni, that color really accentuates your brown eyes!

I have and like several Meow, BE, L'Oreal HIP, etc. loose powder shadows, but I tend not to use them and finally quit even buying them because they're higher "maintenance" for me - as someone else said, I'm often applying my make-up on the go and just don't have time for the mess on myself or on the car or wherever I am. It's just one more step I don't need.

I have them in Cherry Tart, Berry Smoothie, Pink Truffle, and Sweet Tart. I want others but the stores around here cannot keep them on the shelves.

I didn't get pics this morning and now my make-up is smeared. IDK what happened today, but it was a make-up fail. I think the problem was the shadow I chose was too red.

Eyes- sally girl eyeshadow in brick (redish bronze) applied for a smokey eye, strong browns

Cheeks-Contour with NYX taupe shadow, Jordanna touch of pink blush

Lips- Revlon colorstay in a light pinky nude

I was going for a take on this tutorial which is a take on a Burberry ad.

Gel: BRHG, Salon care aloe, Ecostyler Krystal (normal dews)
PT: ION effective care, IAgirl's gelatin PT
Low Poo: renpure (red), Ion swimmers
here are my eyes for today. i have on:

- mac hot paprika (reddish color)
- iman mahogany in crease (brown color - discontinued)
- mac charcoal
- lorac 3-dimension under brow (was part of a holiday set that i love!)
- mac spiked on the brow with a little strut since i accidentally started putting that on first. this works best on me when mixed with spiked.
- mac pro longwear concealer under the eye (great for under eye concealer)
- mac blacktrack gel eyeliner on top
- mac smoulder eyeliner on the bottom
- revlon custom eyes mascara

i am wearing my meow foundation. its mostly fierce sphynx but i mix in two other shades for my perfect shade.

Jeepy, is that red lipstick drying? I often find brights to be very drying.

Today is a no hair-styling, no makeup day. I finally got a cute little hat with ears and a big squishy nose, and as soon as my hair dries, I'm putting it on for the day.

I admire you all for your efforts.
Just mascara today.
I'm not wearing anything on my eyes today yet. But the other day I wore the look in my avatar (minus the flower):

I wore Maybelline Color Tattoo (Edgy Emerald) on my lids. I cut the crease with purple(s): MUFE 92 and Nars Lulu and darkened the outer corner. Then I patted on the lids a light green eyeshadow (Keyano, no color name), and smudged Nars Cancan and Mac Pink Pearl next to the outer corner. I lined my lids with the MUFE 92 and Nars Cancan and applied mascara.

The lips were Mac Lovelorn l/s and Quartz l/l with NYC gloss.

Here's a vid I did for the look: Green And Plum Eye Makeup Tutorial - YouTube
No MAS.

I am the new Black.
