Keep eye makeup on

Recommended Posts

My makeup artist has a whole system, which I do myself in the mornings and it really works.

 

1st, do your primer, foundation, concealer, loose powder, blush and bronzer (if you use it) .. in that particular order.

 

2) make sure that when you put the loose powder on you apply some to the eye lids (upper and lower) with a eyeshadow brush. Bobbi Brown oil-free even finish compact foundation is amazing, as is their loose powder and concealer (she makes the best face products)

 

3) then..before applying any eyeshadow pat a bit of MAC paint in "Stilife" on your whole lid (bottom to the brow bone). Work fast though because once this dries its hard to remove.

 

4)then apply any eyeshadow that you want. It will last all day, rain, shine, workout sweat, whatever.

 

I have the type of skin that would just absorb eyeshadow (even worse sometimes it would crease). But this stuff is awesome! Don't be scared that it looks a bit white when you apply it, once you put eyeshadow over top it won't be there anymore.

Goodness that sounds like a lot of product hehe It would probably cost me $100 to get all that hehe :)

Quite honestly.. I thought the foundation was the primer for your face.. and thought you could wear concealer instead of foundation.. goodness I have lots to learn!!! (I love your step by step)

I don't normally put foundation because I find it sorta looks caked on.. (it seems to bring out the spots where I have dryer skin)... I have a concealer pen that I apply where my skin is red (or that is not the same tint as the rest of my face) and then I apply loose powder to my entire face and eye lids.

No I meant a primer for your whole face, you can apply it to your lids as well though. The primer is good (if you use the right one...biotherm has a cream based one witha bit of shine so it gives you a dewy healthy look) it helps to retain your face's moisture and to even out your skin. If you moisturize before you put it on and then put the foundation on top you shouldn't have a problem with the foundation getting patchy. Also, the patchyness might be due to the way you apply your foundation. You should always use a foundation brush, even for your concealer because it prevents your natural hand oils and germs from penetrating your pores. It also helps you achieve a more flawless finish. I used to apply my face makeup with my fingers before and it always looked smeared and uneven. Lastly, if you apply the concealer after your foundation it will allow for it to set better. If you apply it prior to the foundation, you will most likely rub most of it off when applying the foundation. You can use all those products and not have it look like its alot of makeup.

I used to shy away from spending alot of money on cosmetics, but then I realized that I spend that same amount on jeans, jackets etc... and I don't wear those every day. Whereas my face is on me all day 24-7...lol and its the first thing people notice.

btw...the MAC paint is only about $18 and you can use it with your already existing makeup process.blush2.gif

Ana, that's a great tip about MAC paint in Stillife! I can't believe I never knew about that before. I tried it out the other day, and it's amazing. Thanks for posting that tip!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
