Makeup dont's that you do!
i kinda like that clumpy mascara look just a lil bit, not like tammy faye baker style!). i don't wear eyeliner, so it looks okay on me and i have asian eyes so my lashes aren't so long and overpowering. i find that they do this a lot in the jap mags. alsoo....i curl my eyelashes AFTER i put mascara on and let it dry . i find that it works better and stays curled. of course i clean the curler right afterwards.

- i pump the wand in my mascara - ie. Cover Girl Fantastic Lash
so i can get a wetter product.
ah - i know it dries out the product in the long-run
but the effect is totally worth it, when i get a wetter product on the brush.

- based on my skin colour/undertone, i ought to be using golds/warm colours etc etc..
but i find that it washes out my skin...
i end up using cool/cold colours such as plum, blue, silver etc and it makes my skin glow/pop.

I put a few drops of purified water in my mascara tube when it started getting dryish and pumped the wand up and down to mix it up and kept on using it. It was just fine, never went manky, and did not irritate my eyes!

i don't wear concealer under my eyes. even though i have dark circles, when i try to wear concealer, i look wierd. like i'm not used to it. it also creases in my wrinkles so it's another reason i don't like it.

Well, I don't recommend it, but as I said, I didn't have any troubles from it.

I mix foundation and concealer with conditioner and I use the same huge tube of foundation for like a whole year instead of buying fresh.

oooh I like this thread.... Makes me feel less guilty.

I do 80's blush! I'm always told to just blend bluch on the apples of my cheeks but I always suck in my cheeks and do my entire cheekbone


I pump the mascara wand and I NEVER wear lipstick. My entire face can be done but I'll never wear lipstick.

I'd suppose it would be blue eyeshadow? Someone told me blue eyeshadow is a big 'no-no'. But other people say it looks good on me and brings out my eyes, so...

Yeh, I am the same too. I don't really wear any foundation because my skin is clear anyway and it never matches my skin because I am pale with rosy cheeks.

I've had my Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage concealer for more than a year I can't do anything about it, that thing is endless

I don't use foundation or concealer, either.

Firstly, my sallow complexion is impossible to match.

Secondly, my cheeks are already rosy.

Thirdly, I have bad skin, so you would see bumps anyway.
