This makes me feel so "mom-ish," but if I goof on the liquid liner, I lick a q-tip and fix it.


Ha-Ha! i do that too.. especially to remove the extra mascara that ends up on the inside of my upper lid (get that?). Of course, i'd have just brushed my teeth & all.

My tip might sound strange but it sure as hell works for me.

My friends who has gypsy origins let me in on an old recipie for spots.

Take a tiny piece of bread and mash it a little,then add a few drops of milk and make into a paste.Then put on your offending spot over night,day or whenever you do these things...

It works quite fast and you will find the combination of the milk and yeast pulls any dirt and horrible green stuff up to the top and then you can squeeze the bastard out!

Sounds bizzare but it really is good and i like the fact that it is simple and involves no chemicals and stuff.

Makeup tips for special occassion:

-Clean your face well
-Put mask after exfoliate
-The mask should be wipe a little after 5 or 10 minutes, leave a tiny mask on your face (sometime I use a lifting mask like Chanel mask lifting, or Estee lauder deep hydrating mask, Payot lift visage)
-Then apply foundation that suits to your skin to create glowing fresh look.
-Your makeup will stay all day.

I found out, 5 years too late, that lipliners don't suit me
So I invented a way to make use of my liners:

For long lasting/natural lip-hint-of-color line your lips with the lipliner, and color the insides slightly...then just rub all over with your fingers following a quick lick.
for a glossy effect, apply vaseline.

first and most importantly: DONT TAN and ALWAYS wear an SPF of at least 30-everyday, whether youre going to be outside for five minutes or five hours. even if the only daylight you'll see is from your car to your office and then from your office to car to home again. a LOT of the effects of aging are actually from sun exposure, and the best way for makeup to look good is for it to be applied over gorgeous skin. so ALWAYS wear sunscreen! if you want a tan, go fake, baby.

lipliners make great longlasting matte lipstick

if you have dark brown hair, you can use a good medium brown eyeliner for everything-fill in your brows, line your eyes, and use it as a lipstick-just put it on your lips and add a bit of gloss on top-means only taking one pencil and a pot of gloss in your bag instead of three or four different items to touch up your makeup

buy a GOOD foundation-the better the canvas, the better the paints will look on them

more later

Am I wasting my money?
My makeup collection is a combination of a few supposedly top-qaulity brands. I generally think if you use better qaulity, you should get better results.
But my question is, is there really a differnence in these brands and the stuff you can buy at a department store for an absoloute steal? Because I'm beginning to think there isn't, and obviously I don't like feeling I am wasting my money. What do you all think?

Depends, an average drugstore brand will produce about 2-3 really awesome products and the rest will be crap.

But don't be fooled, costier products don't necessarily deliver better results. I suggest you check out a really neat makeup review website:
www.makeupalley.com

There, you'll find loads of reviews on all sorts of makeup, skincare products, it'll help you choose wiser.

^^ Ditto.

And always remember, everyone is different. A lot of people say Neutrogena is a decent drugstore brand, but I hate it.

I've never found a better moisturizer than the pricey department store stuff, i figure a lot of the more expensive products must be more expensive for A REASON. However; there are some really great products at the grocery/drug store it just takes time to find what really works best for you.
