Catherine commented on the post, Should a collection work together? 2 days, 6 hours 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 days, 8 hours 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? 5 days, 7 hours 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? 1 week, 1 day 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? 1 week, 5 days 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? 1 month, 3 weeks 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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Catherine commented on the post, What tools do you use to apply your foundation? 5 months, 1 week ago

Depending on what foundation i use i mostly reach for my Chanel Foundation brush, my Shiseido Perfect Foundation brush or my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. Sometimes I just use my fingers to blend, if I want a […]

Catherine commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Mega Makeup Palettes 5 months, 1 week ago

I like that they can be a really great value, but personally I would never ever buy one, since I wouldn’t know where to store it. I prefer eyshadow singles or smaller palettes (quads or Dior’s 5-Couleurs), which I […]

Catherine commented on the post, What is the most memorable beauty gift you’ve received? 5 months, 1 week ago

I wasn’t allowed to wear any makeup until I turned sixteen, so for that birthday my mom, grandmother and godmother went shoping together to get me anything makeup-related a girl could want. There were some Chanel […]

I tend to stay away from teal eyeshadows and liners, as well as coral lipsticks and darker or shimmery bronzers, since I find they don’t look all that great on my paler winter skin.

Catherine commented on the post, In what order do you apply your makeup? 5 months, 2 weeks ago

I always start with foundation and concealer, sometimes leaving undereye concealer for later. Then I do my brows, my eyes, undereye concealer, powder, blush (the other way around if I use cream blush) and leave my […]
