Samira commented on the post, How do you apply cream blush? 4 days ago

Real Techniques stippling brush. I use my fingers to blend if I don’t have anything else handy but when I’m home I use a Real Techniques buffing brush to diffuse the edges and, if I’ve put too much on, bring the […]

Samira commented on the post, Do you have a go to lip color (or lip color combination)? 1 week, 3 days ago

My go tos for everyday neutral are currently dior charnelle, ysl rouge shine in nude in private, or clinique chubby stick in oversized orange (suprisingly subtle). I usually have at least one of those on me. For […]

Samira commented on the post, Hit List: Best Makeup Remover 2 weeks ago

I use coconut oil or vaseline if needed for stuff that’s really heavy duty (like mac’s “cement to your eye” eyeliner – I forget the name). In general though I love bioderma, which I bought in canada but just […]

How on earth is something tinted being marketed as an overnight treatment?

Oh, and to follow up, I don’t reshape my brows with color/pencil/powder. They’re way too dark and strong for that. I see people on youtube deciding their “brow look” all the time based on what kind of makeup […]

I have pretty thick black brows, but they can be patchy. Mac Copperplate is the best and most natural fill I’ve found.

Mine are close enough in shape that the differences don’t bother me too much. My biggest […]

Samira commented on the post, What do you look for in a new foundation? 1 month ago

I’m pretty much the same Christine. I like a really natural finish so anything that looks like foundation or is too heavy is out. And foundation tends to migrate on me during the day so something that lasts a […]

The separation issue with the Becca tints drives me nuts.

I use Elta MD every day year-round. Sometimes mixed with a primer. Works for me.

I recently fell in love with Bobbi Brown’s reformulated foundation stick. But I never tried the first version so I suppose that doesn’t count.

Samira commented on the post, How do you apply your lipstick? 1 month, 3 weeks ago

From the tube unless I’m doing a real lip “look” (which is rare) and even then sometimes from the tube. Sheer formulas and light colors always from the tube. I have a thing with lipstick too – I generally don’t […]

Nothing beats Bobbi Brown beach for me. Clinique Happy is another favorite. But I’m open to trying new ones!

Btw, I have a girlfriend who has horrible issues with eye makeup clouding her contacts. There are certain eyeliners (like gel formulas) that she can’t wear at all. I’ve never had those issues myself though. I […]

I always put my contacts in first so they go in clean, but I think if they were out I could do makeup pretty easily if I was close to the mirror. I work fairly close to it anyway unless I really need to see my […]

These blushes have become my favorites so fast. I almost use nothing else anymore. They go on great, last, and I love that they’re small and compact and can be applied with fingers (although I prefer a stippling […]
