Ladies and Gentlemen, I introduce, the ultimate Make Up thread, by yours truly.  Wink

Here, anyone can post a question regarding beauty, make up, skincare and tips and tricks! 

Sister Serendipity, this one is for you!  Heart

My first question for those who want to take part: 

What is your favourite brand of make up or beauty product?  Smile

I'll be posting inspiration pics soon as well!

-Eyebrows kit: Anastasia Beverly Hills. This is like the best thing I have ever bought. 

İmage

-Contour kit: Anastasia Beverly Hills. I have never personally tried it (I don't know how to contour yet but will definitely be learning very soon!)
İmage

-Mascara: 'Better Than Sex' by Two faced - Sephora (Funnily enough, it is called 'Better Than Love' where I live  Big Grin) but it certainly lives up to its name  Tongue
İmage

-Eye shadow: Naked Palettes by Urban Decay are the sh*t! Best thing to have ever been made  Cry

-Eye liner: Tom Ford eye defining liquid liner pen
İmage

-Blush: Mac (There a lot of different colours  to choose from, it certainly depends on the skin colour and/or the occasion).

-Bronzer: Hoola by Benefit. Best one I have tried so far.
İmage

Lol, I meant Australia! 

Omg, Anastasia Beverly Hills.. (drools)  Heart  I need the powder contour kit in my life. 

I own a Mac Lipstick called "Brave". It smells divine but I love rose nude colours. I'm not a bright colour lipstick girl. Not even a lipstick girl. It's all about the lipgloss.  Cool

I taught myself make up but I ain't no MUA. However, I really want to go to an Illamasqua make up class. 

I love Naked 3! It's sooooo pretty. Make up is all about enhancing what you already have.  Wink

I'll post some inspo pics soon x

Oh no, I live in the UAE. Way far from Australia.

I'm a lipstick girl :p I never use lipgloss since I don't like the shine so I prefer Matte lipsticks.

I hate to admit it but YouTube videos tutorials do help. 

I'm not sure you know who HudaBeauty is but she came here to Dubai and gave some makeup classes, they were really helpful. Look her up if you want to.

My love for Dubai... no one understands.  Rolleyes

Here's a few inspo pics of what I like:

I like that glowy, bronzed look. Nothing too bold.

I think it's amazing what some people can do with makeup! I actually admire those girls who can do the whole anime/doll thing! I admit, its slightly disturbing when they talk and move because its like "WOAH!!! OH! Right! You're a real person!"

I know a couple girls who really know their stuff and take their time with their hair, makeup and all that, and they look amazing! but I'm impatient and also don't really have the time. As it is, it probably takes me about 15-30 minutes putting on my face, depending on if I'm going full arsenal (play up the eyes plus the basics) or just the basics (even out the skin tone and some mascara.)

I like the smokey eyed look, but I can't seem to get it right. So I've given up. Besides, my eyes seem to look extra red when I wear dark shadows. Wink I think I've found almost a good combination that I like.

Sephora and MAC are out of my budget. I usually get Hard Candy cuz most of it is free from animal testing, its affordable, it works good, and I like how a lot of their stuff sparkles. Who doesn't love being a bit sparkly? I got one of my more glam friends hooked on Hard Candy eyeshadows because of that bit of glimmer.

I was using Organic Wear for a while, when my budget was more free. I loved that stuff! It worked well, made my skin feel amazing, and it didn't feel like I was wearing any makeup at all! I'd probably switch back to it again if I could afford to.

Wet & Wild is another one that has some decent products at decent prices and is also free from animal testing.

Not a lipstick fan. Lipgloss addict! I find that Lip Smackers or stuff with cartoon characters usually tastes and smells the best. Every once in a while I strike gold and find Reese's flavoured lipgloss. And then I don't want to use it because it's so precious to me. I once found some Apple Bottoms nailpolish and lipgloss. I loved it! The nailpolish lasted a good while, and the lipgloss tasted so yummy and looked so good! I have a bit left and don't want to use it. I've never seen this stuff in stores since Sad
