Mid-tone warm pinks are my go-to, followed closely by corals.

Laura commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Mattifying Face Primers 6 days ago

I find mattifying primers break me out. I do better with less silicone heavy products, even with my oily skin.

Laura commented on the post, How long should lipstick last? 1 month ago

I like a lipstick that will last about 4 hours. Moisturizing enough that it doesn’t dry my lips out, but not so balmy that it slides off.

Every time, no matter what. Oily hooded lids here

Face highlighter and cream blush. I have large pores and oily skin, and neither of those go well with highlighter and cream blush. I pretty much have every other type of product out there.

Laura commented on the post, Do you tend to use the same eyeliner? 2 months, 1 week ago

Yes and no. I change up the color I use on my lash line, but I use the same eyeliner to tightline every day. For tightlining I’m absolutely loyal to Smashbox Limitless liquid liner because I have watery eyes and […]

Laura commented on the post, What type of lipstick finishes work best on you? 2 months, 2 weeks ago

I love cream and satin finish. If I want a shinier look I’d prefer to top it with a gloss. I stay far far away from metallic and frosted finishes.

Laura commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Neutral Eyeshadow Palettes 2 months, 3 weeks ago

Rave: Can’t get enough of them!! I look for warm toned colors (gold, bronze, plum, etc). If it’s a large palette I look for a matte blending color and a matte crease color (and if I’m very lucky a matte color to […]

I don’t normally look at MAC collections (too many to bother keeping up with) but this collection looks beautiful. Can’t wait to see what you think of it Christine :-)

Laura commented on the post, What’s one lip color you feel like you can’t pull off? 3 months, 2 weeks ago

I can’t pull off lilacs, orchids, or pinks with blue undertones. My skin is pale and yellow toned and I have light brown-reddish hair, so those colors look really off. Also because I’m so pale, nude tone lipsticks […]

I have issues with acne…so that’s enough of a motivation for me to push myself to clean my skin thoroughly. It’s a pain, but I think of the break-out that I could have to deal with me and that gets me moving.

Laura commented on the post, What’s your least favorite part of your beauty routine? 3 months, 4 weeks ago

I agree with the washing/drying/styling hair being the least favorite part of my routine. I have fun with makeup, and although getting my winged liner even can be a bit annoying I just find washing and styling my […]

I’ve never had a good makeover at a counter or at Sephora. More than anything the makeup always looks sloppy to me. The liner is harsh and jagged, the eyeshadow isn’t blended, and the foundation and powder are […]

Laura commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Eye Cream 4 months ago

I have to be careful with eye cream because so many of them cause irritation, or my eyes water so much that it takes the cream right off. Carrier oils irritate my eyes and make them water too (Jojoba, Grape Seed, […]

I have about 12 of these so far and I love them! I’ve been able to save so much space, and they’re easy to travel with. I also find that I rotate my products more because I see everything (rather than digging […]

Laura commented on the post, Should every eyeshadow palette have a highlighter shade in it? 4 months, 1 week ago

I think 6 shades or less no highlighter shade is necessary. It’s a spot that could be used by a more interesting color than “bone”.

Laura commented on the post, Has a pet ever destroyed a beauty product? 4 months, 2 weeks ago

My parents kitty knocked my Trish McEvoy large planner palette with several eyeshadows off the bathroom counter when I was staying there once. She was still a kitten at the time and feeling playful. I’d only had […]
