@KatieBarTheDoor I know this was Friday OT not Monday OT but just in case you're still checking back for comments - I second the Urban Decay recc - their line of Naked products is my fave. I use their BB as a primer and then follow with the ultra definition liquid makeup. You can definitely find some cruelty free synthetic brushes, and have someone at Sephora do a color match for you and show you technique for applying. I personally like to use a traditional foundation brush but you might prefer a stippling brush for easier application - the point is, use a brush! I used my fingers for awhile and you just cant get the product worked into your skin and blended correctly. I also recommend a cream blush (I use bobbi brown but it sounds like that's not cruelty free anymore) because that looks beautiful on aging skin which tends to be drier - makes me look younger!! I use a Stila highligher on my cheekbones, ditto to making me look younger. Basically for my face skin, I don't touch it with powder, at all, unless I put on a little bronzer, because cream and liquid products make it look healthier and younger and powders can be drying.
Typically I use UD's eyeshadow primer, and then Naked palette on my eyes and follow with Bare Escentuals Lash Domination mascara. I found all these things by demanding makeovers from Sephora ladies. I have a favorite lady now who helps me whenever I go in, and as long as you're going to spend money, and its not super busy they should have time to give you a full face of makeup and talk you through technique.
Final thoughts: you mention that you are currently using cheapy makeup, and if that's your budget, that's probably okay, just get tools to use it correctly. If you can afford to splurge on anything, splurge on your primer/foundation and stick with cheaper eyeshadows/mascaras/lipsticks. Take care of your skin!
Cheap tools PSA: I love the Elf line at Target - they make synthetic brushes that have held up pretty well and they are literally one dollar.
Why were they always dunking women in water?
@Alli525 Why can't I figure out how to get them in any color other than navy?? I want them in black so I can wear them out in the world with bootieeeess!
@harebell But also there are a lot of species of invasive lily pads that aren't native to their lakes and so it would be okay if they were disturbing those! On our lake we have to do constant work to dig up the pads by their roots or they would take over literally the whole thing. Coincidentally, the house next door to mine is referred to as Bass Rock because they have some big huge bass that hide out near their dock. Makes me wanna fish!!
@Natkat Wow so late on the reply here but my grandmother brought a salad of bacon bits, peas, mayonnaise, grated cheese, and cut up tomatoes to lunch on Saturday and I have never. been. so. confused. until reading this!! I was like uhhhhhhh is this dressing made of mayonnaise? shudder.
ponchos! I just got a poncho and I am in LOVE with it! I was calling it a cape, and my boyfriend corrected me, saying, "capes only have backs." til this morning I thought I liked capes but it turns out I like ponchos! I'd like these as framed prints, please
Well, that was lovely.
@Ophelia I missed 5 as well but they were almost all men, so I guess some of us are just better at reading men than women and vice versa. I actually thought that the makeup on the women gave it away a lot of times - like, the heavier the makeup the more likely "flirtatious" was going to be the answer, which is annoying in it's own right. Notice how none of the men were flirtatious?
