Black Eye Shadow [30 Dec 2005|09:31am]

champagnegirl
Although my camera just flat out sucks (it's not a cheap on either I'm sorry to say), and colors just don't come out well, makeup is something I do really well for the styles I do.

I wear (listing my darkest/base color) an irridscent green that changes to silver and/or blue hues depending on how the light is reflected. I wear teal, navy, and maroon. I wear lots of normal colors like brownish, blue, purple, and rose/pink shades as long as they are cooler pinks. I tried silver and it was ok. Gold actually worked but I don't wear gold. I CANNOT APPLY BLACK.

Visit LimeCrime for some really creative makeup. But anyway, my point is, that I DO NOT apply black eyeshadow well. I have black from Estee Lauder sp? which I just received from my mother. I think it might be that all the colors seem to be much more muted than they are in the case but honestly, I look like I have black eyes.

Anyone have tips and ideal a picture/illistration of how I should apply it? Or is it possible it simple doesn't suit me?

Vivid colors; gentle makeup. I <3 it!! [29 Dec 2005|11:06am]

I don't really like applying beetle juice to my eyes so I like natural products as much as possible. :-p

Which brings up the question, would beetles actually COUNT as a natural product? Probably, but there aren't any in this brand!! :-p

I like this brand and I think the prices are rather reasonable. For those who really like colours that "pop" and can pull off something very vivid there are some beautiful colours and they go on just as beautiful. Many eyeshadows fade a lot when applied. Because these are mineral the colour you see, is the colour you get.

Pros and Cons to Long-lasting lipsticks (also known as semi-perm. colour) and how to make them work [29 Dec 2005|10:58am]

champagnegirl
Really Long Lasting Lip stick

If you're pale or if you like lipstick you're probably tried one of the 12-24 hour lip sticks, which instantly dry your lips out even when the nice gloss they come with is applied. Not to mention, they are so drying you reapply the gloss so many times you go through 3 tubes of not cheap gloss to every one tube of lipstick.

Sooo...

1. Brush your dry lips with a dry baby tooth brush. By gentle but vigerous.

2. Line your lips, even if you don't normally, these long lasting lipsticks are slightly harder to apply than any other kind of lip makeup I've used. Then liner just seems to really be a good idea. Covergirl's is the least long last, least drying, and comes with matching liner. It's like outlining in exactly the same colour vs. tradiational lip lining (I almost never use a darker lip liner anyway, unless I was something really dramatic).

3. Dab the color onto your clean and very dry lips in dots rather than applying like you would a normal foam applicator tiped lipstick.

Do the "rub you lip thing.

Touch up anywhere you missed to make sure it's even.

It will look VERY VERY matte and darker than you want.

MAKE SURE you let it dry.

4. Apply a moisterizer and let it absorb for a little bit. I really like coco butter. Top with a lip gloss you really like or semi sheer lipstick. Or if the color works for you, I just apply patrolium jelly like a gloss. It is the strongest moister sealer you can use really. It does have the disadvantage of being slightly sticky but less so than most glosses.

This really will give you at LEAST 8-10 hours of lips stick wear and depending on the brand.

The longer it says it lasts, the more dry it will make your lips feel but it's not like the 18 hour one is WAY WAY worse than the 8 hours kind and the 18 hour ones last 18 hours. Literally, if I apply them at 6:30 AM I will have to scrub them off at 11:30 PM, which is 17 hours and the longest I've worn them. The color will not be AS strong as it was at 6:30 obviously, but that is without color touch ups at all.

Make your own lip gloss (cheap)! [29 Dec 2005|10:57am]

champagnegirl
I don't really like to wear lip stick. It just smudges too easily and comes off before the end of whatever event I'm at, and I don't like how it applies. I probably lick my lips or some other fashion faux pas.

Anyway, here are two tips.

Make your own tinted lip gloss.

1. I have small lip gloss "pots", you can buy some or you can just save one from when you run out of a colour.

2. Buy a tub of patrolium jelly. It's cheap and it's in most lip glosses, all chap sticks, and it or something like it is in almost all lip products. Also, I suggest adding Palmers coco butter. It's thinner and it "melts" with the heat of your skin. I like to use a combination.

3. Chop a small chunk of a lip stick color or more than one. Mix into the jelly/butter until you get a tint you like.

It's so incredibly easy but it produces really fabulous lip tints. And you can use cheap lip sticks just so long as you like the color. You can also use liquid eye shadow.

Help? [12 Dec 2005|09:09am]

Jeans and shoes are a major pain in the ass to me. I have several pair of really cute heels to wear with jeans. I found great boho-esque ones at Payless and, of all places, Wal-mart, as well as 579, and small stores like that. But I also do things that I don't want to wear heels.

I hate wearing trainers/sneakers/running shoes (whatever your area of the world/country calls them). If I get ones which aren't plain/simply designed to be functional, it's 150$ and I don't like them enough to pay that. I've gotten more casual tops that I still like but I just cannot seem to find the right shoes.

I do not, I repeat, do NOT wear Chucks. They wouldn't go with my clothing.

Skater-style/flat bottomed shoes?? Seems to me that they are really on their way out if not completely out of style. Otherwise, I'd get plain Adidas with basic side stripes. I also looked at Pac Sun, which is a little sporty for me but, whatever. Idk…

Pac
Sun Shoes


The Buckle, a shore I ususually can fall back on for basics in more areas, seems to be infested with cowboy boots, primarily.

What's
up with THAT???


Also, I need non-sneaker casual fairly universal shoes...

I need some staples, you know? I have lots of the "extras" and fun things. I need some things I can wear with a variety of clothing.

So...

1. Ideas for what to wear with my yoga pants and hoodies, jeans and tee-shirts.
2. Ideas for casual shoes that aren't heels that are fairly versatile.

just wanted to tell you girls about LipFusion.
i caved and bought the $48 set at Sephora, ive heard so many raves about these. and i LOVE them!! they make my lips look fuller, the texture is perfect, all the colors look good with my skin tone, and they LAST!
definately worth the price tag.

and... does anyone know of a (cheap) lipgloss that LOOKS like MAC's Lipglass in Nymphette? i want to buy this, but i wanna see if i'll like the color first.

i'm warm-toned, with fair skin and freckles and red hair.
lipglosses with silvery-blue shimmer look awful on me, but Nymphette is gold-toned, correct?

I've started looking for styles I could grow my hair out into. This is one I'm considering. Basically, because of what I did to my hair, all the hair I have has to grow out before I have my own curl again. So I'll be wearing my hair straight for good while and curling it when I want curl. I'm ok with that. I can add great curl easily, but I need something that looks good straight, isn't boring, and because I'll be growing out hard layers, I need something layered.

So honest opinion?

Lush- i just used "two timing tawt" bubble bar THINGY, and OMG.

BRIGHT Pink water (didn't stain my bath tub, btw), fruity, girly scent. it smelled like strawberry flavoured sugar with bubbles. i used it with Snow Fairy shower and hair gel (you can wash your hair with the shower gels, but i don't recomend it kinda drying and made my hair flake) which smells like fruity pink goodness.

so i had the girliest bath, ever. and i recomend girlie baths when you're depressed.

Sleek perfect hair & choosing the right products [03 Dec 2005|11:01am]

The Frizz/Flop Factor
by stylist Mark Garrison


The weather forecast: Hot, humid, chance of rain...in other words, catastrophic hair conditions. Be it curly or straight, thick or thin, humid weather has a stormy effect on all hair types.

Heat and humidity have a "truth serum" effect on hair which makes it hard to maintain a style in certain weather conditions. Whatever your hair's natural texture and tendencies, it will reveal itself in balmy weather. This is the result of the moisture in the air coming in contact with hair's hydrogen bonds -- the bonds which hold curly hair smooth when blown straight, and straight hair curly when set.

Hot Tips to Beat the Heat

When it comes to achieving good hair on bad days, my tactic is "Don't fight it." Going with hair's natural texture is the best strategy. By using styling aids that not only help manage unruly locks but also condition hair, a traditional "bad hair day" can be transformed into a luxurious spa treatment for the hair. Try:

* Use a clarifying shampoo or rinse (try diluted apple cider vinegar -- 4 oz. to one quart of water) to dissolve any buildup on hair and scalp which could repel moisture and block its nourishing effects.
* Apply to wet hair a mixture of leave-in conditioner and a gel (try a mixture of 3/4 part gel to 1 part conditioner). Test mixture first to be sure the conditioner and gel dissolve into each other and do not bead. Do a test strand to make sure it doesn't flake after drying. Either finger-set curls into place, or smooth hair back into a braid or bun.
* Dry hair can be saturated with a conditioning essential oil, for a super-spa hair day (try Philip B. Rejuvenating Oil). Oil should be applied to dry hair and combed through with a fine-tooth comb. Essential oils can be left in hair for as little as 20 minutes or as long as 24 hours for an intensive conditioning treatment. Once oil is applied to hair, pull hair back into a bun for a sleek look.

Weather Warriors: Styling Aids That Save the Day

Here's how the most widely used styling aids weather the elements:

Pomade -- Combats dry, frizzy, fluffy hair by providing weight. Apply to dry hair. Pomade is designed for all hair types. It's available in different consistencies; use a stiffer formula on fine hair, a creamier one for coarse hair.

Gel -- Repels moisture and is ideal for slicking hair back, braids, and for curly hair. Apply to wet hair. Do a test run to make sure the product you choose does not flake. Mix with a styling cream or pomade to soften the texture and avoid a hard hold.

Silicone Spray -- Like gel, it repels moisture. It also provides a shield and shine for all hair types. Apply to dry hair. Avoid applying to roots on thin, fine hair. Apply and comb through curly hair before natural styling, then reapply after hair is dry.

Mousse -- Mousse holds moisture for curly styles, and helps set straight hair. Apply it to wet hair.

Cream -- It holds in moisture and is ideal for creating a textured look of separated pieces. Cream typically doubles as a styling product and leave-in conditioner. Use sparingly. Start on the ends of hair then work up the hair shaft, unless hair is very dry and thick.

RATE THIS!! [28 Nov 2005|09:00pm]

I collected some hair styles that were classified as "funky". I went through 24 pages trying to find ones I thought were actually funky. Mostly they were just short "pixie cuts with something changed (like a "rat tail" about 1" long but all the way across the back. I guess it was "fringe" but all I thought when I saw it was "ooo wide version of a rat tail... :X"

I thought it was interesting that appearently only very short hair was considered "funky" when in fact hair of any length can be. I didn't think maybe were funky at all. But oh well.

I would post links instead of saving them but I have superfast access, faster than standard broadband and it was taking for-fucking-ever to open the pages with 2 pictures at a time. So I patiently saved the ones I thought worth viewing because I <3 you all that much. Ok, and I'm bored.

I thought it might be fun to rate them. So what do you think? Pros and cons...

i liked Doll's idea of posting a list of her favorite must-have products, so here's mine:

*Biore Warming Anti-Blackhead Cream Cleanser... ive been using it every night for about a month and i already notice a difference in my skin
*Clean & Clear Daily Pore Cleanser... i use this every morning, its great for my sensitive skin
*Pond's dry skin cream... my night-cream
*Herbal Essences... its cheap, smells good, and makes my hair look great. i use:
--- FruitFusions refreshing shampoo for normal hair
--- FruitFusions hydrating conditioner for dry/damaged hair
--- CitrusLift detangler spray/ leave-in-conditioner
--- CitrusLift whip it up mousse
*Garnier Fructis fortifying deep conditioner 3-min masque... i use this for my hair once a week, and i rub it into polish-free nails and cuticles at the same time, its a trick i learned awhile back
*CoverGirl Outlast All Day Liquid Makeup... CG does not make a foundation color that fits me, but i use the SPF 14 primer that comes with this product as my makeup base/ day lotion
*L'Oreal infallible make-up in #612... my foundation
*Maybelline dream mousse blush in #40... LOVE this!
*C.O. Bigelow's My Favorite Lip Balm... its a balm, but very shiny and looks like clear gloss

Face wash- Coal Face by Lush
Moisturizer- Ultra Light by Lush
Toner- clean and clear
Foundation- Loreal true match C1
Blush- no name sheer pink shimer powder, bobbie brown Sand Pink for under my cheek bones
Eyeshadow- Milani, MAC and Urban Decay, purples, chocolate, silver, gun metal, black, greens. i have every colour from white to black (yellow, red, hot pink, everything)
Lipstick or lipgloss- Rimmel's lipgloss in Snog is a daily go to school lipgloss, almost my lip exact lip colour. i favor Reds and wine colours for pictures and fancy events. Milani has a plum coloured lipstick pencil, which i love.
Eyeliner- Liquid eyeliner by maybelline in Noir
mascara- Rimmel's volumizing mascara

i also fill in my eyebrows with a dark brown matte powder just because i have thin hair all over.

i don't believe in rules when it comes to make up, the more unexpected, the better. as long as it's done well, why be conventional?

Eye make up is a very significant subject for me. first of all, this is the only type of make up I apply regularly, and second, I am anything but a pro when it comes to it, and I feel obligated to learn. I’ve seen my friends performing their ritual so easily, but when it comes to my eyes, my lids are way too heavy, I cannot apply eyeliner inside the eye because my eyes are extremely sensitive and every wrong move makes it seem like I am in a middle of a hysterical crying session, and of course, I have to get used to different shades everytime I dye my hair. The reason I am doomed to apply eye make up on a daily basis is my eyelashes. They are rather long, but absolutely blond. So are my eyebrows, but no, not my hair.
When it comes to a mascara, it’s as important as oxygen. I am currently using lancome fleXtencils, it is highly highly recommended, makes your lashed long, dark and absolutely not excessive.
And here is something I found in the latest cosmopolitan(I found a place that sells ‘em cheap), I’d scan it but my scanner is problematic, so I’ll just copy, it’s short.

USE AN EYE SHADDOW QUAD CORRECTLY
1.use the deepest hue to define your lash lines.
2.highlight brow bones with the lightest shades.
3.sweep the second palest color all over the lid
4.define the crease with the medium tone.

I personally found it very useful since I own one and keep using one shade at a time

Lise, hope this fits into the spirit you have intended. If not, feel free to delete or remark(insecure me).

Keeping colors from fading out of your hair [22 Nov 2005|11:32am]

champagnegirl
If you've every colored your hair an "unnatural" color like black or pink you know that it fades out way too fast.

This DOES NOT work with a box from the store. Those have the developer in them.

But if you buy the colour at a beauty supply store, you can add it to a cheap conditioner. I add a little as I need it, mixing it in the same bottle I use to color my hair. The ratio is 1 part color to 1 part conditioner.

Then I apply it, leave it on about 5 minutes and rinse with cold water. It will refresh color without damage, since there is no developer.

This works for all colors but best for black, reds, the "unnatural colors" and on bleached hair that has been colored darker again.

If your hair is more than one color, paint the color/conditioner onto the part that is colored and not to your whole head. I use a 1" paint brush, seriously (I like it better than the stiffer bristled hair color brushes.

It will not work with a color lighter than your own, of course.

For blondes, getting the same level as their color but with a violet base or a blue base will prevent brassiness/oranging.
