I'm looking for a nice dark brown shade for my eyebrows. I have pale skin and sort of dark brows. Nothing to expensive? Thanks :)

Try Wet n Wild’s Brow Kit! Super cheap and comes with a gel and two browns. You can either mix the browns to create a custom shade or use the lighter brown in the front of the brow and the darker brown on the ends of the brow to create a fading/ombre effect. This is great for when creating a natural looking brow because naturally brows are a little more sparse in the front. Or you can just use one of the browns :)

ELF makes a great $3 brow powder sold at Target too! Comes with a wax and a powder.

You could always just use a matte brown eyeshadow as well :)

If pencils are more your thing try Maybelline Define a Brow Pencils, Jordana Brow Pencils or Rimmel’s Brow Pencils, those are all my favorites! I can’t recommend an exact color because it really depends on your hair color and brow color.

I don't have a question, I just wanted to commend you on how polite you are in response to each question. even though you usually have to repeat yourself your refer people to the FAQ, as well as your educated answers. you don't bullshit if you don't know, and you're resourceful. I recently unfollowed a "beauty guru" on here because of how rude & self righteous she typically is, even in general as well as to repeat offenders, so I wanted to just show some you appreciation.

How can I clean my beauty blender without buying the cleaner?

Asked by

I use Johnson’s Baby Shampoo like I said in my previous ask for my brushes, I use it for my beauty blenders as well!

I run the BB under warm water until it gets fully soaked and apply the Johnson’s Baby Shampoo where ever it’s stained and gently squeeze the BB until it gets all foamy. By squeezing your getting the baby shampoo to foam up. When it gets foamy the suds/soap is cleaning from the inside out and the foam will turn foundation colored. 

After the BB looks clean I’ll keep squeezing under warm water until the water runs clear and it’s no longer soapy.

Just make sure to squeeze gently and make sure it’s wet! If you squeeze too hard when it’s still somewhat dry it might rip :)

what's a good affordable brush cleanser that you recommend?

Asked by

Johnson’s Baby Shampoo!

I swear by it! I use it every week for my brushes for years. It’s gentle, lathers well, doesn’t dry out your brush hairs, cleans even my hard to clean brushes like foundation brushes, is affordable and won’t irritate your skin because its hypoallergenic.

You can get a big tube to last you months for under $5 :)

My top lip is smaller than my bottom, and I feel like thats why I never like to wear lipstick because it looks strange. Any advice on how I could make it look better?

Asked by

My top lip is a lot smaller than my bottom lip too!

Lip liner my friend, lip liner is the answer.

Lip liner will allow you to draw a bigger top lip. I always slightly over draw my top lip and create a fuller top lip to balance out my larger bottom lip. I just draw a little above my natural lip shape, trying to create a new lip shape will make it look a little too fake. 

I have a lip liner that matches my lip color to wear every day and I’ll throw some lip gloss or a sheer lipstick on top. But I also have a pink and nude lip liner that will match with most lipsticks when I want to wear actual lipstick. For bold/bright lipstick a lip liner is a must! I have a red and deeper red/wine shade and they match with most of my bolder lip colors :)

I'm really pale and everything I try to use to contour ends up looking orange or muddy. Do you have any suggestions? I really want to try liquid not powder but if I haven't found the right one

Asked by

Try Sonia Kashuk’s Undetectable Bronzer in Warm Tan (the lightest shade)

I have the darker shade because i’m a medium skin tone and it blends flawlessly! You can blend it out to where its very natural or build it up. Its about $10 at Target. Or you can just use a cream/liquid foundation a few shades darker than your skin tone, I recommend the Maybelline Fit Me foundations sticks because they are easy to apply in the hollows of your cheeks :)

For powders try something like NYX Taupe or Maybelline’s Fit Me Bronzers!

NYX Taupe is a really cool brown/taupe. It’s not super pigmented so it goes on somewhat sheer but you can build it up! It will never look orange or muddy.

The Maybelline Fit Me Bronzers are also very light weight! Not too dark, very natural looking. I’d recommend Light Bronze, the lightest color. 

Lastly, try Too Faced Milk Chocolate bronzer, it’s lighter than the Chocolate shade and great for contouring!
