I’m all about the liquid liner! and blending eyeshadows. That’s usually what I get compliments on. Lips are a little more difficult for me though…I always admire people who can put it on with no mirror!

I’m pretty good with lipstick, I can apply it in the car without a mirror (not driving!!!) I envy people who can pull off perfect cat’s eyes, I struggle to get both eyes looking the same 🙁

I can put on any lipstick or gloss without even thinking about it. I know where my lips are. 😛

Not many just yet…..filling my brows, putting on falsies and washing my brushes….LOL.

I’m still a work in progess.

There is so much fun to be had in the beginning, Monique. Sometimes I miss being a total newbie to it all!

But I envy your false lashes mastery!

Me too.

I am not always that good with the smokey eye, that is because my eyes are small, so I must be really careful. But when it is there it is unbeatable. 😉

I believe mine is liner…pencil, gel, creme, or liquid! I guess because it was one of the first cosmetics I ever used!Also lips…gloss liner and lipgloss!

I’d have to say liner. It was the first technique that I learned and have had many years of experience. Also, I’m pretty good at blending and applying lashes. I’ve been learning how to contour recently so maybe I can master that soon. I wish I was good at combining l/l and l/g like you Christine!

Filling in my brows! I get complimented a lot on these and apparently it looks natural too (no one believes I use powder and a brow pencil). I think I’m pretty good with liners too…liquid, pencil, creme, powder.

I can’t think of anything I’m lacking in… maybe I’m just well-rounded. I’m no expert, though!

I would say liquid liner, but does it count if I can only do it on one eye? 🙂

Honestly, I’ve mastered nothing, as pitiful as it sounds, but I’m pretty ok in everything.

blending! i think i’m pretty good at blending colors and even people who don’t know anything about makeup (i.e. boys) will say “i like your make up. it’s blended nice” i always lol cause it’s happened more than once. its so funny to hear boys talk about blending

you and me both Stacey!!! I was trying to think of at least one thing that I have mastered….there just isn’t one thing 🙁 LOL I will say that I have mastered spending money on stuff I like….I am really really good at that!!!

Definitely – Concealing!! I conceal every tiny little depigmentation so that my skin looks flawless!

I think I got my eyeliner, pencil or liquid, down to the T..! And Mascara and Falsies.. HOWEVER, blushes give me the hardest time! I always want to use it like a bronzer and put it all over my face.. lol

making my skin look flawless. I know I’ve mastered this when even my closest friends said that my skin looked perfect and started to ask who my doctor was. I got tons of strangers complimented me. I could also put on lipstick and gloss without looking in the mirror, thanks for years of perpetually being late! I wish I could wake up in the morning and were able to put on eye makeup nicely, tight lining my eyes perfectly and contouring my chubby cheeks.

i think i’m pretty nifty with my eyeliners(not so much pencil as liquid and pens), mascara and basically making my complexion look good…. but not any of these without a mirror. the most compliments i get are on looking natural-only better. i haven’t really gotten good at the awesome dramatic looks here. trying, though!

Hey Cristine,

Oh yes definitely without any doubt im MISS PERFECT in applying lipstick, with liner also and my Eye liner too,liquid one.Its the EASIEST JOB FOR ME IN THE WORLD!!


I think I can run a very clean line along my upper inner lash line. Since I am Asian, I’ve been practicing to contour bridge of my nose to make it look less flat. Well, I would say my friends notice I have a more distinctive nose when I have my makeup.

I’d have to say that I’ve mastered applying gel liner. I was terrible at it when I started using it all those years ago, but I’m a make up perfectionist so now I do very well. I get compliments on that aspect of my make up if nothing else. I’m the queen of clean, even, winged gel liner!

i think people who have lips that have rims (slightly raised from the skin) are the ones who can put on lipstick without a mirror.

i can put on even deep red lippie without a mirror because its actually really difficult for me to go outside the lines.

…so don’t feel too bad, i think its physical.

(PS, christine you are such a gem, a bright, kind, sparkling lady.)

Ahh, interesting point you bring up, Alison! I haven’t really tried to do it blind, but I’m pretty sure I’d have some coordination issues, lol.

And thank you 🙂

you should try using a nude-ish lippie and pouting slightly, see how you go without a mirror, you should be able to do it…

I have definitely mastered the cat-eye look with pencil liner, cream liner, and/or liquid liner!
