  • About Me
    I am happily married to my wonderful husband & have 2 stepkids (stepdaughter is 19 & stepson is 13).
  • My Interests
    I am gradually getting more interested in cosmetic safety, I am now using all LB, EDM & OM products except my cheapie L'Oreal Voluminous mascara & I use Alba Terra lippies.

    eating healthy, working out, cooking, baking, playing with makeup!!!!

    I LOVE eyeliner, has to be my favorite thing, you can change your whole look so easily by changing the color/application technique of your eyeliner.

    I have super oily skin & struggle with adult acne.
  • My Occupation
    registered nurse
  • My Beauty Product Wish List
    I'm still trying to master the smokey eye look, I feel that I am not good at it, but others tell me I'm great at it.

    I need to get better with false lashes.

  • My Favorite Makeup Brands
    Lure beauty foundation Y6.5 & veil D (sometimes C), cannot live without urban decay's primer potion & roux eyebrow tint. LB, EDM & OM for eyeshadows/liners & blush.

    I still use a cheapie mascara (L'oreal voluminous waterproof). It got good ratings on skindeep & I just don't see ANY difference whatsoever between cheapies & department store brands for mascara.

On the other hand, Lure Y11 does not have a lot of yellow while OM Praline does and mixing them together gives me a nice yellowish foundation with great staying power and creamy finish. LOVE! So glad to hear it! Yes, Lure has INCREDIBLE staying power!! That's a great idea to mix them like that!
  2. Check out my thread here--it says it all http://www.makeuptalk.com/forums/f12...ml#post1305056
  3. I'm super oily & the only thing that has worked for me is Lure beauty, it's so great!!!
  4. I do contacts first, but you can really do it either way. Occasionally I get my lenses dirty & I'll pull them out to rinse & then stick back in, but that's pretty rare for me.

I am having a very difficult time choosing ten eyeshadows and would really appreciate some advice! *1. I'm 42. My skin is pretty decent but not that of a 20 year old, so I'm wondering if the shimmers will make my eyelids look crepey? Would the pearl or mattes be better? Are the mattes too flat looking? Any EDM eyecolors I should definitely avoid? I have a lot of yellow undertone in my skin - I use Winged Butter or Golden Medium foundation - but tend to also have a lot of ruddiness in my complexion that I try to neutralize. My hair is light brown with golden highlights, and my eyes are green. In the past I have always worn very neutral eyecolors - a golden or taupey brown in the crease with a light color on my lid - I generally prefer a natural look (me, only better) without anything that's too obvious. I usually line my eyes with my eyebrow powder. Lately I've been using Suncat SunShape in my crease which is a light, neutral contouring color... but I have read that purple and violet can really make green eyes 'pop'. I don't see myself wearing dark purple all over my lid, and I don't want to look like I have bruised eyes... but I thought maybe a lavender or light violet color on my lid and a darker purple color to line my lashes might be nice. I'm not sure what I would use in the crease though. *2. Would Net Surfing or Mystic Night be a good purplish eye liner to make green eyes pop? (Is Mystic Night more blue than purple?) *3. Have any of you tried Diary, Wildflowers, Snowflakes, or Bedtime Story? *4. Does EDM make a nice light, warm gold color with a small amount of shimmer that might work for me? What do you guys think of Movie Night or Oasis? *5. Any opinions on Ginger Peach, Sunset Voyage, Sunset Candles, Spin Cycle or On the Phone? *6. Any flattering light neutral shades you guys can recommend? Good China? Rare silk? Chamomile? I've been driving myself crazy trying to decide, because I really have never tried colors like most of these and don't want anything that looks too harsh or made up. Thanks in advance for any advice you guys can give me! Your coloring sounds a lot like mine, I wore light winged butter & I have green eyes, I am 35. I happen to LOVE EDM e/s. I think the shimmers look fine on me, I would think they would look on you too. They not too overly shimmery in my opinion. I highly recommend diary & wild flowers, two of my faves! My only complaint is that diary is a bit pale, but it works as a crease color anyways, I love to pair it with picnic actually. And wild flowers I wear all the time, it's great for a smokey eye look & I also use it on my brows when I want to fill them in more. Oasis is a great gold color, one of my faves! Ginger peach is a great peach tone. On the phone is a nice neutral tone with a touch of shimmer, one of my faves. Good china & chammomile are both faves of mine, I use chamomile as a highlight almost daily, couldn't live without it. I also highly recomend countryside & comfy for brown tones. And the dark brown brow color is great as a brown eyeliner if you're looking for one. Smokey is also a good liner.
  6. not too bad, I think, I started with bare minerals, which made me break out, that's when I learned about online companies, then I tried EDM & OMC, but EDM makes me breakout & I didn't like OMC's foundation (LOVE their blush, e/s, concealer, veil, etc, just not the foundation), so then I tried lure beauty & fell in love & am done searching. So that's only 4 for me.
