Get Your Base On! Tutorial and 2 Reviews: How I Do My Base Makeup, Starring Tarte Tinted BB Treatment Primer & Sephora Teint Infusion Etheral Natural Finish Foundation

Having a good base for your face is like having a good bra on. You can’t really see it, but it makes or breaks the rest of your look. Whether you like to use high coverage theater-grade makeup or you’re a tinted moisturizer kind of person, your base is, for lack of a better word, the foundation  (I know, I’m SORRY!) of your makeup look.

Let me tell you, the journey to a base that suits you to a T that will bring you to every occasion will have many ups and downs. You will have melt-y, cakey days and some days you will look a million bucks and you won’t know why. Welp, I’ve found THE best ways for me to have a base that last, so let’s get on with it, shall we?

All You Need Is Two! Tutorial: Easy Smokey Eye To Match All Kinds of Lip Colors

I think the hardest question for anyone to answer make-up wise is “does my eyeshadow match my lipstick/lipgloss?” Does it even have to match? I don’t really know, but what I do know is that when it’s my turn to ponder on such matters, I’ll choose to play up the lips.

But that doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun with the eyes too, either. I used to think that the more colors you pack on the lid, the “better” the eyeshadow would look. Sadly, on my eyes, it’s a wholly different story because I don’t have a lot of lid space. If I pack on two or three colors in my crease, everything will look muddy, which is why I don’t need an eyebrow highlighting color or a “transitioning” color. I just need a crease color and a lid color, usually.

Photo Update Late March-April 2015

Hello lovelies! It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything really chatty, so here I am!

Forgive me for not posting anything much these few weeks. I must agree that entering the workforce gives you much freedom after work hours, but you have so little energy left at the end of the day, you just want to vegetate and stay at home because that’s all you can do.

All I can say is, these two months were a whirlwind of activity for me, weee!

Does it Really Replace Eye Primer? Review: MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Soft Ochre

Some people use MAC Paint Pots as their eye primer, probably because it is sticky and can enhance the vibrancy of eyeshadows etc. I bought this because my beloved Bare Study Paint Pot dried out and I was in the market for another eyeshadow base.

Why do I need one since I already have a primer? Well… uh… I needed it because it makes eyeshadow appear even more vibrant than on bare skin or only with primer, and NYX Jumbo Pencils tend to crease on me if applied too thickly. MAC Paint Pots have a drier texture, and thus work better for my oily lids.
