I write down lip combos, but never refer to my notebook, so I end up with the same combo over and over again, although I have so many lipsticks and glosses!

Not really, I hardly do the same look twice. Either I change the colors or the technic. I have way too many products to want to repeat anything ๐Ÿ˜‰

I think I do this a lot, too, Sandy! I have done some looks more than once, but I usually don’t remember what I did enough to do it again!

I don’t, but I should! I’ve been “into” make up since forever but just recently started truly studying it, so I’m still figuring out what looks work best for me. If I do something that’s REALLY fitting then I try my best to remember what I did. I should start writing them down. I may venture to the MAC store and buy some face charts.

No, but some counters will give a you a couple. SOME of them, SOMETIMES. There’s a template for you to print your own floating out there, I’ll try to find the link and post it.

If I randomly do a combo that’s really nice I write it down, if I see something that someone else did (including Temptalia) that I want to try, I write it down. I have a STACK of index cards, each one with a different combo. I also have a blog that I put the really really nice ones on.

It’s funny that you would do a topic on this. I just wrote down a combo yesterday. When I really like a combo and it worked really well I write it down. I have a journal that I write down those combos as well as combos that I swatch on my hand.

Me too! my blog documents every look i tried, well at least most of it. I rarely copy similar look, though, cos I still learn and love to experiment with my lil collection.

I haven’t so far, but just the past couple days I’ve started keeping track/taking pictures…and I may even start sharing them on the forums here, and/or posting them to my blog that I just started up. It really depends on how brave I am! ๐Ÿ™‚

Back when my camera was working(its possessed at the moment) I think I took a pic of my face everyday. Some just to say I did and some because I really liked the look of it.

Yes! Well…I’ve been slacking lately but I generally will note combos I try. I keep track because sometimes I forget if I’ve tried the combo or if I even liked it.

By the way, lovely lily pigment on the lid and passionate e/s is amazing together! My friend told me it should be my “signature” look. Haha.

That’s awesome! I’m glad some of you guys do! I’ve found that it can be useful ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for the tip on Lovely Lily & Passionate!

Yes, I write down my favorites in a book. And I use a myspace album(LOL) to keep track, I just wish I would have wrote some of them down.

I make a mental note, usually. And if it’s really good, I put it on my site. I like to really change up my looks, so I do forget some that I haven’t used in a while.

Yes, I just started writing down color combinations that work for me and ones that i want to try. Every time I get an inspiration, I make a note!!!

My sister and I try to keep track of the looks we have done all week. We sometimes forget when things non-make-up related get busy. We never forget our most-used looks. One is Illegal Cargo with Shore Leave and Pandomonium for a liner. ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s always fun when one of us discovers two shadows that go well together, but we never thought of the combo before.
