Emilie commented on the post, What was the last product you hit pan on? 4 days, 21 hours ago

My brow powder! I use Canyon Classics Quad by Physisicans Formula and frankly, I’m ready to be rid of it. I’d like to replace it with an actual brow product (maybe from Anastasia or TheBalm).

Emilie commented on the post, Have you ever changed your hairstyle or color drastically? 4 days, 21 hours ago

Yes! I’m a natural blonde and I’ve dyed my hair everything from strawberry blonde, to orange, to true red. It’s a pretty coppery red shade right now, which wasn’t exactly planned… I had gone to a different salon […]

I’m not big on the palette trend. I mean honestly, how many shades do you need for bronzing and contouring?! I think they’re good for professionals, but other than that I’m not a fan. I’d rather just buy one […]

Emilie commented on the post, How are your 2015 beauty-related resolutions going? 4 days, 21 hours ago

I made my resolution a bit late (in February, figured better late than never) and it’s to take better care of my hair and my skin! I just got fed up with my broken damaged hair and breakout prone skin. So far it’s […]

I still love the makeup in Maleficent, I was totally wowed by it back in July! Nothing comes to mind in something that I’ve seen since then.

The eye look is so absolutely stunning, Christine! I really want to try Colour Pop shadows eventually, overall the formula looks amazing.

The Smashbox Contour Kit’s contour shade is pretty cool! It also comes with a slightly warmer bronzing shade (close to the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer which isn’t so warm that you couldn’t use it as a […]

Emilie commented on the post, What eyeshadow color did you use to dislike but now love? 2 weeks, 4 days ago

Neutrals for me, too! I used to think they were boring and would almost feel I wasted a day/possible look by not doing something colorful, but I’ve since come to love neutrals (the amount of neutral palettes I […]

Emilie commented on the post, What color blush do you gravitate towards most? 2 weeks, 4 days ago

Pale pinks or light browny peach colors :) Both are really easy to match with an eye look and look flattering on my skintone. My more daring / less lazy side loves orange blush, though!

Emilie commented on the post, What are your best tips for creating the perfect smoky eye? 2 weeks, 4 days ago

Blending and layering! I’ve seen such a difference in starting with the lightest shades first and gradually darkening, it makes it so much easier to avoid harsh lines or a look that’s too dark. Also, to not be […]

Emilie commented on the post, What type of beauty products do you spend the most on? 3 weeks, 3 days ago

Eyeshadow, without a doubt! If I really am in love with a palette (or two… or three…), I’ll make it work as long as it’s a good value. With lipsticks, blushes, etc, I’m usually happy to look for drugstore dupes instead.

True nude or pastel pink lips! As a fair-skinned blonde person, I always feel like I ridiculous when I wear them, even if I like how they look on others with similar coloring :/ I just am always scared of looking […]

I wish they put out some more palettes with neutrals and colorful shades! I love my Ammo palette, but sadly I think they discontinued it. That’s the kind of palette I love seeing from them, I feel like they used […]

Emilie commented on the post, When you find a holy grail product, do you stop the search? 3 weeks, 4 days ago

So far, yes! After finding my holy grail face primer, mascara, and contouring powder, I haven’t even been tempted by anything else in those categories. I agree that if something is truly a holy grail, the search […]

Emilie commented on the post, What makeup do you apply first? Last? What’s your order? 3 weeks, 4 days ago

I do my eyeshadow, eyeliner, concealer, powder, mascara, bronzer, highlighter, blush, lips all in that order ;) It’s ordered that way mainly by priority, because sometimes I end up running out of time and have to […]

Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden! I loved the sample I got with my Naked3 palette, it’s an amazing primer AND great for concealing blemishes :) I like it better than their Original Primer Potion.
