Hey guys, this is my first time posting here.

Just thought I wanted to share one of my favourite looks I have done so far.

Hey beauties!

In the comments, share the best beauty-related secret(s) you have!

A few of mine:
Keep eye cream in the freezer.
Rub olive oil on split ends.
White-based toothpaste works extremely quickly to reduce acne redness.

Go go go!

 I refuse to let this community die! So now that I have a little bit of free time and was inspired by michele1218's video, I wanted to ask you guys:


If you could only use 4 products for your every day makeup routine, what would they be?

For example: Mine would be liquid concealer, black mascara, pink-toned blush, and lipgloss.
BTW, I've been using Benefits Bad Gal Lash Mascara and I LOVE it!

Here's a link to michele's video: www.youtube.com/watch

This is the video that I've been trying to upload for two weeks and finally succeeded!!!
(And then found out the audio failed at around 3:20 in the video. Ugh!)

In Goong/Princess Hours, Shin Chae Kyung, our main character, doesn't wear any makeup, but her personality is bright and the set itself is lively and colorful. For this look we're going to still use colors, but we're going to tone them down and use them sheer. For a more intense look, use the shadows with a bit of water or MAC's Fix + for more intense colors.
 
 


Review of Estee Lauder's Sultry Blush (from Futurist Collection) and Plumwood Lipsticks.

Sultry Blush (14) is SOOOO pretty!!! =D

BTW: I need tips on how to wear Plumwood. :( I don't know what to do with it. Eeek!

This look was inspired by a Japanese film called "I Give My First Love to You". I tried to capture the main character's innocence with pearl white and medium pink eyeshadow with an over all shimmer and highlighting effect.

This is my first video trying to show makeup application. I'm still trying to work out the lighting. Sorry!

Ok so I posted here a while ago on my old account jazmyn_alex09 . Well I recently just had a baby and my skin has gotten so bad from my hormones being out of whack.

I've always used Garnier's oil-free acne wash but it doesn't seem to be working anymore. Any suggestions on a good daily acne wash that isn't too expensive? I'm on a budget now that baby is here so yeah...

Also I'm looking for a good foundation that is affordable. When I say affordable I mean it will last a good amount of time and save money in the long run (ex. I don't have to go out to the store after a couple of weeks to a month to get more), but also comes in my skin tone. I have an EXTREMELY hard time finding makeup that goes as dark as my skin and to be honest, I'm not even that dark which kind of sucks lol.

Thanks! :)

SO, in hopes of re-igniting our community:


What is your favorite mascara?

(post only one and tell us why)
Ex. It's lengthens well.

Ok so when I was about 11-14 I had really bad acne and I was stupid and decided to pick at it. Well now I'm 18 and I no longer have acne like I used to. I occasionally get small breakouts but that's not my concern. My concern is my scars. Does anyone have any tips for acne scars?

Picture where you can see the scarring.

Also I would like to wear more eyeshadow but sadly I have no idea what colors would look good on me for like everyday wear and then if I'm going out or something because of my skin tone.

Pictures for skin tone.
click to see the pictures!Collapse )

I used to be not necessarily a tom boy, but just not into makeup throughout high school and now that I'm a young adult I feel its time to start pampering myself more I guess. Thanks in advance!

I saw some of you were posting polish pictures so I thought I'd join in. I've always loved doing my nails, but recently I've gone kind of manicure-crazy. Enter at your own risk!

Four Manicures. :DCollapse )
