  1. Why Eyelash Extensions Are In, and Mascara Is Out Raccoon eyes. Damaged, brittle lashes. The same results despite different brands and applicators. There are so many reasons why mascara is on its way out and lash extensions are finding their way onto many more eyelids. Firstly, what are eyelash extensions? There are three different styles of lash extensions: silk, mink and synthetic. Synthetic is the cheapest you will be able to find. You can get lashes in different sizes depending on preference or the size of your eye, ranging from 6mm to 17mm. Extensions are typically done at a salon by a professional because every lash is applied one at a time with special glue. The lashes take about two hours to apply and then you can keep them if you get them touched up every three to four weeks. Cheaper lashes, like the ones you can find at the local drug store, can be applied by the wearer and usually don’t last as long. But on a tight budget, it gets you pretty close to the desired result. Now most importantly, let’s talk numbers. Depending on the quality that is expected of the mascara and the function, prices can range anywhere from £0.99 to £20 on average. And don’t even get us started on the £9 million H. Couture Beauty Mascara. Needless to say, if you don’t want your eyelashes to fall out, you’re spending a good amount of money on something that can destroy your lashes and doesn’t stay good for very long. On the other hand, lash extensions weave a different story. The average price of a full set of professional eyelash extensions can cost anywhere from £99 to £199. The touch-up process thereafter can be about £30 to £43 GBP. And this is all dependent on what type of style you are trying to achieve. The price is steep, but the outcome may be more rewarding. But with the cheaper eyelash extensions you find at the drug store, prices can be as low as £2.65. Watch out for Part 2: Maintaining eyelash extensions
  2. Madonna's makeup artist of 12 years, Gina Brook, used Chantecaille products to create her look inspired by her new album Rebel Heart. Here are the products that were used on her: Start with Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation. "It's an oil-free, light-reflective formula, which works well on stage and lasts through the performance." Contour below the cheekbones with Cheek Crème in Shy, then brush Playful on the apples. Using the Glacier Eye Shade Trio, sweep the light, frosty white shadow across the lids as a base and illuminator, then dust the diamond powder on top and contour in the crease and outer corners with the trio's two darker shades. Draw 24H Waterproof Liner along the upper lash line and wing it out for a strong cat-eye before applying mascara. Finish with Lip Definer in Discreet and Hydra Chic Lipstick in Arctic Rose for matte pink lips. Source: Chantecaille and Harper's Bazaar
  3. The limited edition Spring collection by Tom Ford is now available on their website. I love the look of smokey eyes and nude lip. I own enough smokey eye shadows and nude lipsticks/glosses to last a life time but would still love to own these as well. Any thoughts on the look?
  4. I don't usually make changes to my daily makeup look or the way I apply makeup based on Runway looks but they are interesting to follow to see what the top makeup artists come up with and what their vision is at the time. Here are a few looks from the Spring 2015 Runways. Elie Saab Runway models featured a natural look with emphasis on eyes. Makeup artist Tom Pecheux lined eyes in black (top and bottom) and used grey shadow on the lids. The lips were pale peach color. Valentino Runway featured a romantic look by makeup artist Pat McGrath with emphasis on "pure" without mascara. Giorgio Armani runway look drew inspiration from bamboo and Japanese art. Makeup artist Linda Cantello used baby blue eye shadow on the lids paired with a gold liner. For Dior, makeup artist Peter Philips went for the fresh look using Diorskin Nude Air products.

  5. Does anyone have experience shopping at Bluemercury? According to WWD, Bluemercury was acquired by Macys and they have plans to bring competition to Sephora by opening more stand alone Bluemercury stores as well as integrating Bluemercury products and stores inside Macys. I've never shopped at Bluemercury before so I wonder how it compares to Sephora and if they truly will be a competition to Sephora. Looks like a lot the brands sold at Bluemercury are similar to Sephora with the exception of Bluemercury having maybe more higher end brands (La Mer, Revive etc) than Sephora.
  6. I need one for length and one for volume. Any suggestions?
  7. I found this interesting article about celebrity makeup artists and how they pick the looks for red carpet events. This is an interview with Kristen Stewart's makeup artist, Beau Nelson. I wanted to share it here in case anyone is interested. Click here for the article.

  10. What is your favourite Mascara? These days I am in love with Loreal Butterfly Effect Mascara, isn't it gorgeous!?
  11. Hello! I'm a new person and such, but I figured that I needed to get some advice on some things from all you expert types. Bassically, I have been wanting to be a makup artist since I was about 12. I've always loved makup and have had a great deal of fun over the past 3 years trying on and learning about makup and desperately want to start doing others make up. I am still inexperienced doing others makup, but have decided to do makeup as a "for tips" thing at my local fashion mall so that I can really get used to working with different skin types. (Nearly every one of my friends and my sister have the same skin type.) Even if I loose money doing it I desperately want the experience and want to make people look pretty.. What I was wanting some help with is this.. I am looking for a decent line of cheap makeup for this adventure of mine. In particular, I'm looking for decent foundations, powders, mascara's and concealers. Sadly, I've spoiled myself by getting a great deal of my stuff from sephora these days and would rather not spend a fortune on practice makeup. (But what point is there in doing someone's makeup if it looks bad? >///<; ) Oh, also, if anyone has any advice or articles that they think I should read, I would love it if you posted them. I am still super new to this and love advice.

  13. Hi Everyone! I'm writing this in effort to be informative. I recently was on the look out for the original version of Too Faced's Natural Eye Palette. They recently changed their self-proclaimed best-selling palette by adding 3 new eyeshadows. I really liked the old version so I surfed the net. To my surprise, I discovered numerous Chinese companies selling "replica" better known as counterfeit makeup. The top counterfeited makeup lines are Too Faced, BareMinerals, Urban Decay, Smashbox, Chanel, Mac, Philosophy, GlamGlo, etc. They are selling BareMineral's Foundation for as little as $2.86 per jar. The scary part is that you can't even tell the difference between the authentic & the counterfeit. I guess the whole moral to this story is that if the pricing is too good to be true, then it probably is... Thanks for your time & attention... :-)
  14. So you have any really rad makeup tips? Any cool products? (Maybe some indie ones that aren't that popular?) Or maybe a common product that work SO much better with a cool tip? Light it up! Let's hear a couple secrets! As a makeup artist I only hear things in the professional realm and I want to hear what the public has to say! Here are a couple of mine to kick it off! Never, ever, ever, pull your lid while doing eyeliner or mascara again! Instead pop out the water line by putting your ring finger underneath your lower lash line and pressing lightly! The waterline flips right out to say hello. Put powder on first instead of using primer! It takes one expensive product out of the whole equation, plus you use less foundation, get fuller coverage, and better lasting power! Just be careful it isn't cakey! Too much powder=Too thick and matte to pass as skin! Once a year, take a two-week skincation! You heard me! Lipbalm ONLY, and pack on your skincare. Cleanse, moisturize, and put that extra time you put into your makeup into your skincare! You'll have refreshed, decongested skin! Now it's your turn!
  15. I have naturally long, curled, and thick eyelashes but I'm still frustrated with most mascaras I try for some reason or another (clumping, smudging, flaking, giving me spider lashes, etc.) I like to keep 90% of the drama of my makeup on my eyes. I want to be able to have as much mascara on my eyelashes as possible. It's just my preference. But I also want them to be separated and lush looking- not spiked and spidery. I have no interest in spending 15+ dollars on a product I'll be replacing every couple months so I'd like to find the most dramatic mascara that I can from the drugstore. Any recommendations?
  16. Hey everyone! Here's a review and first impression of the new Urban Decay perversion mascara. I'd love it if you'd check it out! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U8kBOVaVVz8&list=UUwyq9avnIGy7rI_pPlW1ITg
  17. I'm about to start high school! My face reacts very highly to stress which causes me to get tiny little breakouts all over my T-zone mostly and around my hairline. My T-zone gets very oily and the rest of my face is either dry or just normal (mostly dry, ugh.) I only use drugstore makeup because that's all i can afford, lol. Can any of you suggest any good makeup for my type of skin? I'm basically clueless I also have semi dark under eyes that vary depending on how much sleep I get and whatnot. I try to cover them up but I can never find a good concealer that does the job quite right. I don't like the feeling of having a whole lot of makeup on my face which is why I try to use as little as I have to. If any of y'all could help it would be greatly appreciated.
  18. Hello my beautiful readers (first time or otherwise)! Lately I’ve been getting a few compliments on my eye lashes and how thick and black they look. Even though my lashes are pretty thick, they are blonde at the tips. So I thought I’d share a few products and tricks that I like to use to achieve lush lashes and bigger, brighter eyes. (below with no eye makeup) I first apply a concealer to my eye area. I’ve been loving the Silk Naturals Peach HD Concealer in P20 ($5.50) to brighten the inner corners and neutralize my dark circles. I pat this in with my ring finger. Under eye concealer instantly makes the eyes look more awake. 2. Now I apply mascara to my top lashes. For this I have been loving the Physicians Formula Organic Wear Fake-Out Mascara ($9.99). I start by placing the wand at the base of my lashes and blink slighty (I know, what a weird thing to say) to thicken up the lashes from the root. Then I work the wand upwards in zig-zag motions. This mascara is REALLY buildable, so I do about two or three coats. 3. The final step is totally optional but really adds to the awake look. In fact, I think it makes the bottom lashes look very Twiggy inspired. I use the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara ($10.00) in Black. Mine is new (a repurchase) so the formula is a bit wet, but I wiggle this into the outer half of my bottom lashes. It really opens up the eyes and doesn’t flake. For the sake of this post, I will show you how it looks when I use the bottom lash mascara on the inner lashes as well. That’s it! A short and sweet, three-step routine for a simple but pretty eye look. I hope you enjoyed. Tell me some of your favorite mascaras and under eye concealers below.
  19. Mine was mailed to me yesterday and I tried it today... while I liked it, it did not survive an afternoon of hanging around the pool/occasional swimming. It's a fine mascara, but nothing exceptional. I also did not notice it being any more black than my other mascaras, and that is a marketing point. Thoughts from anyone else who's tried it?
  20. I had ordered the new Dior Addict It Lash from Sephora a few days ago and just got it in the mail. I applied it for first time today and I'm very impressed. This is my new favorite mascara. I've had it on for about 14 hours and no flaking. The mascara looks as good as when I applied it. My lashes look full and separated, not overly done for day time. Major rave for this one if you are on the market for a new mascara. Anyone else tried it yet? What are your thoughts?
  21. No brand is perfect. Even ones with a range of amazing, versatile products will come out with a dud every once in a while. And then there are some that reverse that standard- junky brands with crappy products that somehow come out with one amazing staple. Some brands are hit and miss. Think of a few brands you normally purchase, drugstore or high-end. Now name your top favourite product from those brands (just one per brand!) and your least favourite, or most disappointing. For instance: RIMMEL- Favourite: 60 second nail polish. Hate-it: Scandaleyes shadow stick in White.
  22. Is there a particular product (i.e., red lipstick) or a way you apply a specific product (i.e., "cat eye" liner) that has become such a distinctive part of your "signature look" you take time to apply it even if you don't have time to do the rest of your makeup, and/or you rarely change even if you get creative (depending on your mood, what you're wearing, season of the year, etc) with the rest of your face? For me, it's false lashes. I used to have VERY long, full lashes - so long, they'd touch my eyebrows. Unitl one day, when I was a teenager, I had a bit of an accident using a sunlamp, and burned my eyelids - apparently damaging the follicles of my lashes. After that, many of my lashes fell out and did not regrow, or they'd begin to grow out, then fall out when they reached about half their normal length. However, I was "known" for my long, fluttery lashes - so I began wearing falsies. I wear them every day - even if I don't have time to do the rest of my makeup, because those long lashes were what distinguished me from everyone else, and without them, I just don't feel like myself. Do you use a specific product or have a way of applying a product that distinguishes you, and that you feel "naked" without?
