letsfightsomemore asked: Hey! I adore your blog and always look forward to your posts! Ive been into make up for a long time now and i must say eyeliner is my favorite type of makeup! Ive tried many different types of eyeliner but def have to say my heart is set on liquid. I was wondering what you favorite brands/types of liquid eyeliner were? Im really looking for something very inky. I currently use the MAC liquid eye liner and i do like how matte it is. I have the MAC superslick aswell but the formula is kinda wierd
Thank you <3
If you like a matte, super black liquid eye liner definitely try Wet n Wild MegaLiner! This is my every day eye liner, only $3 :)
My second favorite liquid liner is Maybelline Line Stiletto, it’s not matte but it’s very black and easy to use :)
fuckfairyfloss asked: I blend my makeup well and i use fix+ spray annd i use laguna bronzer from nars with a proper contouring brush, i use primer and moisturise all the time but my makeup never looks blended and dewy, and it never stays on all day. it becomes patchy and sorta detaches from my face and sits on the surface. HELP Please!!
I think there may be 2 problems, the way you apply your foundation and your skin texture.
My foundation will totally go on patchy and non blended if I use a wrong brush or my hands, I find using a flat top brush to blend my foundation looks the most flawless. A flat top foundation brush is similar to a stippling brush but it has more brush hairs so it helps give fuller coverage and blends more effortlessly.
If your bronzer isnt looking blended, it may be because the bronzer isnt blending well over your foundation. You definitely have to use a powder over any foundation when using powder blushes and bronzers because powder products apply patchy over liquid/cream products.
Second, exfoliate! Exfoliating your skin plays such a huge role in how your makeup and foundation will look. When I skip exfoliating for a few weeks I can tell by the way my skin looks. Exfoliating will make your skin super smooth, pores will look smaller, your skin care products will be more effective because they can sink in better, just so many benefits come from exfoliating :)
Exfoliating will create a smooth base for your makeup by creating smooth skin, thus helping everything blend and sit better!
I have a whole post on how to exfoliate and different exfoliating methods here :)
emuhlee89 asked: Hi ! So after I put my foundation on and set it with my elf setting spray my foundation will still come off on my clothes, and others when I hug them or something lol. How do I prevent this?? It's embaressing !
I’m not sure if youre using powder but usually powder is what transfers on clothes and such because powder sits on top of the skin instead of liquid foundation which actually sticks. However liquid foundation can transfer too! Some foundations just don’t stick to the skin so you may want to switch foundations, usually “long wearing” foundations like Revlon Colorstay, Covergirl Outlast, Estee Lauder Double Wear, etc are less transferable because they are meant to grip to the skin so they last all day. Applying a primer under your foundation will help as well by helping your foundation stick to your skin rather than coming off. Primer almost acts like a glue between your skin and your foundation.
I really love using translucent powder over foundation to prevent your foundation from transferring! It’s a white powder that applies clear/translucent so it sets your foundation like a normal powder but is completely invisible. I also love it because it looks more natural, less cakey, controls oils better than normal powders and has blurring/perfecting qualities that makes your overall face makeup look better :)
But no foundation is completely non transferable, if you hug someone wearing white and apply enough pressure any makeup will transfer. But it shouldnt be super transferable to where it comes off on everything :)
