black-c-offee asked: Do you know which drugstore foundations sell shades with yellow undertones and quite pale? I wanted something like loreal lumi magique but the shades it comes in are quite cool apparently, idk? Thank you again for answering my endless questions xx
Try Loreal True Match! It comes in W shades which is warm/yellow so you’ll know for sure if it has yellow undertones. Revlon Photoready foundation also comes in fair shades that are on the yellow side :)
isnotsaying asked: Probably somebody already had ask you that, but can you make a list of your favorite mascaras ?
- Maybelline Falsies - favorite drugstore mascara, very black, lengthening and volumizing
- Maybelline Illegal Lengths - separates and lengthens
- Loreal Voluminous - very black, gives a lot of volume
- Jordana Best Lash Extreme Mascara - VERY black, gives length and volume
- YSL Faux Cils - very black, lengthens and volumizes
- Dior Show Black Out - very black, gives volume and lengthens slightly
I usually always layer mascara too! If one day I want a little more volume i’ll use some volumizing mascara on top of another one :)
phoepe asked: Hey! Love your blog! I just wanted to ask what you think about kat von d products especially eyeshadows. Would help me a lot :)
I really love Kat Von D’s products! All very long wearing and their face products like their famous Tattoo Concealer and Tattoo foundation are full coverage and long wearing. Their blushes and eyeshadows are silky and pigmented. Can’t really go wrong trying one of the products! :)
barb3dwire asked: Hey, new follower here and I was just wondering if you could recommend some blushes for very fair skin? I would prefer drugstore but high end is fine as well :) xx
For prink blushes try Illamasqua Katie (very pale pink, sold at Sephora), MAC Well Dressed (light pink), Benefit Hervana (light pink), ELF Pink Passion (bright baby pink but a sheer layer looks like a baby pink, sold at Target), Wet n Wild Pearlescent Pink (peachy pink), Rimmel Santa Rose or Pink Rose (both medium pinks) or Covergirl Cheekers in Classic Pink (light pink).
For peaches try Milani Baked Blush in Luminous (light peach), MAC Peaches (light peach), ELF Candid Coral (golden light coral), Covergirl Cheekers in Pretty Peach (pinky peach) or Benefit Coralista (pinky peach).
Also, bright blushes like hot pink or purple look SO pretty on fair skin. Just apply the blushes with a light hand and with little product ont he brush :)
ktobscura asked: This isn't a question but more like info for anyone who finds it useful. I bought sephora matte lipstick in "The Red" b/c I wanted a classic Hollywood red. The color is perfect but the lipstick is dry and fades super fast. Also this classic color doesn't come in their cream lipstick. I just got sephora lip stain in basically the same color (01 is the number I think) and it works a million times better. It doesn't dry my lips out and the color stays much much longer. Just wanted to testify :)
Thanks so much for your input! :)
