I thought I'd start this thread because personally I'm hopeless at finding suitable makeup products for myself and thought I'd see if anyone out there had good recommendations based on my complexion and coloring. I always tend to pick out things that do nothing really to enhance my look - and I'm sure there are others out there like me that would love some advice from some of you beauty gurus!
So here's me - pale w/ brown hair and hazel eyes. I have a hard time w/ eyeliner because it always seems to wear off or smudge - so any good recs. for that would be awesome. cropped.jpg
I'm pale with brown hair and eyes, and the only eyeliners I use are the L'oreal Le Kohl and Bobbi Brown Gel Liner in Espresso Ink. The L'oreal one is decent; smudges eventually but I might get better wear if I could be bothered to wear a primer. Since I rarely wear black kohl, I haven't tried to find a better one. I adore the BB gel liner- the color is dark enough to emphasize without being a harsh black on my pale skin. The deep brown looks much more natural on my skin. On me, it stays all day without smudging, and I've never used a primer with it. Definitely try it if you can!
be advised too that i don't line my waterline, so i can't comment on how these products work there.
I always use the Tony Moly gel eyeliner..it's the best one I've tried so far. I don't like using liquid eyeliner because if it comes in contact with water it starts to run and pensil eyeliner usually smudge.
I put the tony moly gel liner on the back of my hand one morning when I was doing my makeup and it stayed there the whole day, and I wash my hands with soap at least 5 times at work and put on hand lotion, but it's not hard to remove when I use a makeup remover^^ Also I was pretty cheap since I bought it in Korea

Oooh...I've heard good things about Rouge Coco. Completely forgot to check that one out. I've ordered some MAC products - including the MAC blushcreme in ladyblush and the Bobbi Brown gel liner. I also may try out the Tony Moly eyeliner if the BB doesn't work out. Do you guys ever do a red lip? I want to maybe try one out for New Years. But think I'll have to go for a darker shade because normal red tints always wind up looking pinkish on me - because of my natural lip color.
So, I wanted some opinions on what the best brands and products are. I'm looking for orange and coral lipsticks, good quality eyeshadow, mascara that works well for people with really short lashes and foundation that won't make my skin oily. I have pale skin, dark brown hair and green/hazel eyes if that makes any difference.
I apologize if there is a thread for this sort of thing- I must have overlooked it.
