  1. Mascara for Weddings

    I'm not a professional makeup artist or anything, but I've had my makeup done professionally a bunch of times. I think it's totally reasonable to ask that of your clients. Even if it's just an ask. They can always say no. Even just a brief explanation like the one you provided above would be enough for anyone to understand. We all know how cheap-y and flimsy those 1-time use applicators are... and I think many ladies have their all-time fave mascara on hand! The only thing I can think of from the customer's perspective is this...if it's my wedding (or someone close to me), I'm probably going to cry! If I don't have an amazingly good cry-proof mascara, I'd hope my makeup artist would have one for my special day. Otherwise, there could be a big mess! Also for you, what if something goes wrong as a result of using their mascara? Like it wasn't waterproof (or said it was but really wasn't)? That wouldn't be your fault but could be seen as an oversight on your part and then your work wouldn't look as good! Just my thoughts, hope it helped!
  2. Best Brands for Olive Skin Tones??

    @Reija*Gasp* NO! Could this be the answer to my prayers???? Haha! OMG, I want to head to the mall makeup counter right meow. Thank you so much!
  3. Colourpop New Releases

    @ReijaThank you! I'm going to try some lip products. I'm obsessing over matte colors right now. But maybe some corals for Spring? I'll keep you posted!
  4. Colourpop New Releases

    I've been seeing Colourpop a lot but haven't tried any of their products yet. What are they known for? Pigmented bright colors? What are some favorites? Any recommendations for natural, glowy colors? I love my Naked Palette, for example, but sometimes wish the colors were more pigmented.
  5. Best Brands for Olive Skin Tones??

    Hey all! I'm new to the forum and super-excited to chat with you all! I've got a question! So, I have an olive-y skin tone. I tan easily. In BareMinerals, the closest I can get to my shade is Medium-Beige. Clinique is off, and there are a few others that I've tried too, over the years. The thing is, all of the brands I've tried never really perfectly match. They're always just a smidge too pink or red. It's so frustrating because in most light I can get away with it, but in natural sunlight, you can totally tell the difference! Ugh! Can anyone relate? Are there any brands out there specifically for olive-y or skin with a yellower undertone? Or brands that include these tones? Help! This would be like extra-added-super-bonus, but I prefer non-comedogenic products, when possible. Chat soon! <3
  6. Help!! Hair problem :(

    Hey @Polishgirl! I had the same problem! Here are some things I've been doing for the past few years. Some of them, I will say, take a while to notice results because you are fixing the problem from the inside out. I'll preface this by saying I don't color my hair, and I only use heat to style my hair on special occasions. 1.) Hair, skin, and nail supplements. It's usually a combo supplement that has biotin in it. These work! There are many kinds that you can find in stores or online. I noticed my nails first. They grow super-strong; even the nail lady didn't believe they were real when I grew them out! 2.) Fish Oil supplement: The Omegas help your skin and hair grow healthier. 3.) Those top 2 were for a more from-the-inside-out long-term fix... for more noticeable, fast results get regular trims. I get them every 6-8 weeks. 4.) A coconut oil mask every week. I get my hair wet, heat up maybe 1/2 - 3/4 cup of coconut oil in the microwave till it's warm, slather it all over my hair from root to tip, wrap my head tightly with a plastic bag, and chill with a Netflix show for 30-40 minutes or more. Then I shampoo and conditioner as usual. Sometimes I need to shampoo twice to get it all out. And air dry! 5.) I shoot for sulfate-free products. I've been using Loreal Everpure Sulfate-Free Shampoo and Conditioner for years. And I wash every other day. Hope this helps, girl! Let me know if any of this works out for you! <3
