Em commented on the post, Have you ever used makeup to look worse? 1 week, 6 days ago

After years of trying various stuff, I’ve finally got a routine that works for me: wash with a wash cloth in the morning, cleanse with 1% salicylic acid face wash at night in the shower, apply lowest-strength […]

How does Urban Decay’s finishing powder compare to Guerlain Les Voilettes powder? Les Voilettes is great at keeping my oiliness in check without looking cakey, but if UD is as good at 3/5 of the price, I’m happy to jump ship.

I have trouble finding peachy/salmon concealers! I’m very pale but with bad dark circles, and most concealers that are fair enough are also so yellow that they look unnatural.

For some reason, these sales NEVER fall when I’m running low on staples like mascara or foundation! I’ll be grabbing a Korres mascara as a Christmas present for my mom (she tried and loved mine but she thinks it’s […]

Aw man, I’d always imagined you sitting at a gorgeous vanity.

I used to keep everything in a tackle box (I move a lot), but the tackle box isn’t enough to hold everything anymore. I’d been thinking of […]

Before school or work, five minutes (foundation, undereye, eyeliner, mascara, blush… I put lipstick on in the car. If I wake up early, I might add another five and do eyeshadow). Before an interview, formal […]
