Good thread TinyD.. I love these kind of threads coz i ALWAYS get new lemmings!!!Foundation: Lancome Adaptive (at the mo) Concealer: Rimmel Hide the Blemish Eyeshadow: MAC Paints (probably stillife) Eyeliner: MAC Kohls (Phone Number) Mascara: YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Blush: Estee Lauder Blush All Day in Rose Desire Bronzer: Estee Lauder Amber Bronzer in Sun Kiss
Foundation - Don't use one officially, I've got decent clear skin, but when I want something to layer my powder over, I use either Aveeno's Positively Radiant Moisturizer or Nivea Visage Simply Glow, or a basic tinted moisturizer.
Concealer - Don't use often, but have a Revlon Skinlights Wand
Eyeshadow - (several)
MAC "Silver Dusk" iridescent powder (love this as e/s)
MAC "Vanilla" or "Vapour"
Mary Kay "Crystalline"
Urban Decay "Polyester Bride"
Prestige (fill in names later)
Revlon "Moonlit Jewels" Illuminance Creme Quad
Eyeliner - Don't often use
Mascara - Don't often use; I've got long lashes naturally. I like to use a clear one, sometimes, though.
Blush - BeneFit Dandelion; Jane Blushing Earth
Bronzer - Can't pull off bronzer; I'm too "pink," and since I can't tan, pink just looks better on me, so I'm a highlighter gal.
List your favorites of the following: Foundation - La Prairie Skin Caviar for normal days and either Lancome Adaptive or YSL Teint Mat Purete for those really humid days. Concealer - YSL Anti Cernes or Becca's concealer Eyeshadow - I'm an eyeshadow slut. I can't commit to even three brands! LOL! Okay, I first grab for NARS but I also covet Laura Mercier and YSL. Eyeliner - Any pencil is as good as the next. Mascara - YSL Faux Cils for dramatic, full lashes and Maybelline Full n' Soft for natural lashes. Blush - Lancome Peach Fever and NARS Lovejoy and Outlaw. Also Chanel blushes are great! Bronzer - Sue Devitt The Gold Coast and Chantecaille Capri
Hi pampam! I see that you love Aveda's Conceal + Protect. When you run out, you may want to check out Shiseido's Optimal Cover Concealer. It's very similar: covers everything and is dense/thick in texture. It comes in a pot and a teeny amount will do the job!
You know Tony, I tried to choke Ryan , but it took a lot of effort to get good color. Maybe lack of blood in the head? Eating chocolate was a better substitute. Originally Posted by Tony(admin)Here are my favortites:Foundation-Concealer-Eyeshadow-Eyeliner-Mascara-Blush-Bronzer-

I probably wont be much help here -- since I can no longer buy Prescriptives in my town, I'm looking for new foundation, concealor, and powder!
Eyeshadow -- Maybelline's Expert Eyes in Sunbaked Neutrals
Eyeliner -- Maybelline's Great Wear Budgeproof Waterproof Eyeliner in Dark Chocolate (I like these because they're like a mechanical pencil, for some reason I have bad luck with the eye pencils you have to sharpen!)
Mascara -- Maybelline's Waterproof Lash Extension
(That's funny... I didn't purposefully try to buy all Maybelline eye makeup but that's how it turned out!)
Blush -- never use
Bronzer -- never use ... but maybe adding some blush or bronzer would give some color to my pale skin, I might have to check these out...
