Catherine commented on the post, Win It! Kat Von D Monarch Eyeshadow Palette! 2 months, 3 weeks ago

I’d combine the first four shades for a nice warm summer nights look, with my Guerlain Bronzer and lots of mascara. Or I’d use the second quartet for a romantic office look together with some sheer pink gloss.

Catherine commented on the post, How often do you wash your makeup brushes? 3 months, 1 week ago

My foundation and concealer brushes after each use, if I’m really in a hurry, I’ll leave it for the next day, but never longer. Eyeshadow and other face brushes at least once a week, except when I use cream shadow […]

Catherine commented on the post, How do you organize your eyeshadows? 3 months, 2 weeks ago

I tried organizing them by color once, but since I have a large amount of duos and quads/quints, I got back to organizing them by brand. It also looks neater in my drawers, having all similar looking packaging together.

Catherine commented on the post, Do you use a lot of different makeup brushes in a look? 4 months, 1 week ago

It really depends on the look I’m going for. Most days its 3-4 brushes for my face (concealer, powder, blusher, and sometimes a foundation brush), one for brows, and 2-3 for my eyes. I find that I reach for my […]

Catherine commented on the post, Should a collection work together? 4 months, 2 weeks ago

I don’t really care either way, since I rarely buy everything from a collection (neither my vanity nor my bank balance could stant this). As long as the products follow a general theme (like packaging, finish or […]

Catherine commented on the post, Do you finish beauty products regularly? 4 months, 2 weeks ago

I definetly finish lip balms, any kind of skincare and foundations regularly, as well as my tinted brow gel and my favorite bronzer. I have never finished a blush or powder eyeshadow, though, since I simply have […]

Catherine commented on the post, What color eyeshadow do you reach for most often? 4 months, 2 weeks ago

Shimmering beiges or anything taupe. They look good against my skintone and can easily be played up with a bit of color or some black liner for a statement evening look.

Catherine commented on the post, How necessary is concealer? 4 months, 3 weeks ago

Concealer is the one makeup item I cannot live without (mascara being a very close second). If I have no time, I’d rather skip foundation than concealer. The effect of well matched and blended concealer is much […]

Catherine commented on the post, Do you find salespeople at the beauty counter helpful? 4 months, 3 weeks ago

It really depends on the person at the counter. Some people really do know what they are talking about, others don’t. I once met a great sales person at a MAC counter when I was shopping for my first red lipstick, […]

For me it’s eyeliner pencils. I only own a few in staple colors like black, brown, grey and bronze by UD and Bobbi Brown, but I rarely reach for them. I find that lining my waterline doesn’t suit me very much, and […]

Catherine commented on the post, How often do you wear waterproof mascara? 6 months, 1 week ago

I wear it quite often. Whenever it’s very humid or hot, or when it rains. And I reach for it whenever I have a cold, as I tend to tear up quite a bit then. I never had any problems removing waterproof mascara with […]

They look great! I’m so glad I ordered Radiant Magenta. I can’t wait for it to arrive now.

No, not really. They do ask me to do their makeup and hair when we’re going out, and I have managed to convert my sister into using brushes for her eye makeup instead of those dreadful applicators that come with […]

I actually would never leave home without makeup whenever I have a cold, since it’s then that you actually need makeup to make you look better. A bit of foundation and concealer for the red and splotchy skin. […]

Catherine commented on the post, How do you respond to criticism about your makeup? 8 months, 2 weeks ago

It really depends on who says something and what the criticism is about. If a close friend finds that a particular look ar shade of eyeshadow/lipstick doesn’t really suit my coloring, I might check again in a […]

It’s mostly high-end products, now that I can afford them. Overall they really seem to be better, with some exceptions: I still love MaxFactor mascaras, Maybelline lipsticks, and essence gel eyeliners. Most of my […]

I’m very thorough, even if I happen to fall into bed at 3 or 4 am. I just can’t stand the feeling of makeup that has been sitting on my face all day and all night long, it makes me feel grimy. I also happen to own […]

I’d use Champagne Wishes on my lids with MAC Soft Brown and Cork in my Crease with a neutral pink blush and lipstick.
For Tinsel Town I’d go all out with a dramatic grey smokey eye and pat in on my lids. I would […]

Catherine commented on the post, How many sprays of perfume do you apply on average? 9 months, 3 weeks ago

I mostly use 3 sprays, but those are all only ‘half-sprays’. One half on my hair, one half on my neck, and whenever I’m wearing something with a low neck I’ll add another spray on my chest. Over the years I found […]
