Undefinabl3 - Thank you. I've heard of people using that, but haven't tried it yet.


Everyone looks beautiful!

Undefinabl3

um...you do what with your brow?? I don't touch them unless I have an od one that pops out of line, then i pluck itů.fucking hurts.

Girl, you are so fortunate. You're gorgeous and your brows are naturally that fabulous?!

My eyebrows are naturally completely invisible. I "tint" them, using at at home brow dye. I also dye all of the thin, white body hair around my brows, to help fill in what little hair I have. Then I wax. Then I tweeze the strays. Then I use a brow pencil AND powder, to try to look "natural" in spite of all of the unnatural things I have just subjected my face to.

If you want hair suggestions, I'm in love with messy buns and braids that are so in right now. They look effortlessly chic. Also, sock buns are really cute.

The one thing I like to do (and suggest to my friends), is a little bit of darker shadow in the crease of my eyelids, to make my eyes look bigger. I use a grayish brown that goes with my skin tone. It's a trick I was taught by a makeup artists years ago.

Beautiful updo suggestions! I will definitely try them!

I am envious of people who can go no-poo. Not because I have curly hair (it's actually completely straight, I twist it while it's drying to get some wave), but my friends are all doing it and their hair looks so fantastic.

ThisHell: What can I say? You are beautiful and stylish! No tips needed there! I will definitely try the lip butters. I've always been afraid to try any color, because I feel like my lips end up dominating my face, and last tie someone had me try some was at a Mary Kay party and the colors they chose for me were NOT good (it was my own cousin ).

Lol, ah, yes! The infamous Mary Kay parties, lol! Always fun.

You Do have prominent lips and that is a good thing! Gosh, as a makeup artist, that is the hardest part for me-the tiny lip. So tricky. So you are blessed. And you don't have to go crazy bold, just amp it up a slight notch when you're feeling frisky

Good tip btw on the contour of the eye.

Use it as a rule for contouring the face too ladies! When I teach classes I always say, shimmery bronzer is fabulous "where the SUN hits your face naturally" when you go on vacation when you want to add some highlight to your features...

When you want to contour the goal is not to be orange, lol, it is to actually give the illusion of deeper concaves to the structure of the face! I know when I contour someone I am not using orange brown shimmery. I am using a deeper matching skin tone color with a touch of grey to it. Trying to match the color that naturally occurs in their own contours and then making it a bit bolder. Does that make sense? It's not supposed to be glittery. Drives me nuts. Use that to hit the high points of the face. the bridge of the nose a bit, the tops of the cheeks a bit.... wherever you get a bit of sun that first day out in summer...

Sorry...i'm longwinded...

Oh and also- NARS orgasm does come in a liquid (2 shades)... so pretty on basically everyone you can imagine.

ThisHell:

I want to learn contouring SO BAD! I have all of these tutorials pinned on Pinterest, I just don't know what to do it with. I wear Bare Minerals foundation, and know nothing about liquid foundation. I have a difficult enough time getting my face to match my neck, and I cannot get any lighter of a foundation in my line (I use the lightest they make!) so there is no "highlighting" for me.

Well, others may scold me here, but I am not a fan of the bare minerals.... quite frankly-ALL makeup is mineral! And I am a fan of letting the natural skin show, even if its not "really" natural, lol... with a powder all over the face, it's very difficult to do that. I prefer to use a cream or liquid and then powder to either set where I have needed to conceal, or in the oily areas of the face. You are very pale as am I. my absolute favorite foundation (online or through Sephora) though it is a bit pricey, is Makeup Forever HD. One or two small pumps will have enough pigment to cover the entire face and their level 115 (think that's the lightest) is a great shade for fair skins. Pretty sure they have a warm/cool tone but they definitely give great coverage and they are "buildable" where if you need a bit of extra coverage for say, discoloration around the nose or chin, you can add a second layer and it still looks like skin. Love it! And it won't dry out the skin like a powder can do.

LOVE all of this!!

So, here is a more full body "this is how long my hair is" (pay no attention to the 5 inch roots LOL)

My hair has that natural really lazy wave to it. I can hold curl like a champ, but it takes me, personally, way to long to roll/curl it in the mornings.

Because of my active/outdoor life, i really do have to shower/wash every day, but I try not to shampoo every single time.

My phone died, so I don't have anything to take an "after advice" picture yet, but its been very helpful!.

jo2love - Undefinabl3 - Thank you. I've heard of people using that, but haven't tried it yet.

Yeah, it's not the greatest to admit But it seems to help me, so meh.

WOW LADIES!!! STUNNING!!!!! Now I'm going to tell you all a little secret. As a self proclaimed makeup artist where I go from "you look sick" to "humm...can you do that on me"... YOUTUBE TUTORIALS ARE YOUR BEST FRIEND!!!! You can be vixen, you can be a goth, you can be the girl next door, you can have cheek bones, you can have a piggy nose, you can have EVERYTHING! With the power of your make brushes. LEARN TO CONTOUR AND HIGHLIGHT! Always have your hair done. No roots! I did a challenge where I had to dress to a "10" every single day for a week straight. Didn't matter if I was at home, going to the grocery store, or out for coffee... My confidence sky rocketed! Try it girls

Undefinabl3 - if your hair is somewhat wavy you might try not brushing it after you get out of the shower. My hair is much more naturally wavy if I just finger comb my bangs into place and then blow or air dry.

I also like to put some Moroccan oil on the ends. Makes it super soft and shiny and it seems to help with the wave also.

Getting the right cut to encourage more wave will help too of course

Undefinabl3, do you blowdry?

When my hair is drying, I come it out, add some oil/frizz ease stuff (Rusk brand), then twist it where I would like nice waves. Then I blow dry it on low.

You're gorgeous! Time to do something with that hair! I am wayyyy overdue for a root touch up, too.
