This Forum should be for health and beauty...not just health. No one likes to talk about that much anyways!
Ok, girls! Sometimes we all need a little help when it comes to applying makeup and playing dress up. From brand name cosmetics to q-tips! What's your trade secret? What's the best way to rid yourself of white/blackheads? Do you pluck or wax your brows? Cap or foil? How do you blend your color palette? Which lipsticks last? Shine or Shimmer? Spill it! Cause we all wanna how...how do you put the Glam in Glamour?!!!
For me...I use noxzema face scrub...as well Biore' deep cleaning pore strips and face wipes......I NEVER wear cover up...I'm oh natural....I wear some UV sun screen when leaving the house....I put on masqara lipstick and if going out in the evening eyeshadow.....I also drink lots of H2o...and I may spoil myself and buy the Evian water spray makes my skin so sinnfully soft....BB Jeanie
ok, so one thing i have learned, phisoderm, a face wash, works the best! it only takes a few days to completely clear your face, and it gets off makeup really well. Also, a tip i have heard once is to use white eyeliner on the bottom of your eyelid to make your face look awake! now who doesnt want to look awake? haha..
You are young and you have been blessed with gorgeous skin (well at least it looks like it to me) My beauty "secret" is all about the mainenence. I swear by Oil of Olay age defying- yes age defying at 30! They make a great face wash- I use it twice a day in the shower- and then I apply the lotion to my entire face, neck, chest, hands and feet. It makes your skin so soft and you practically glow. Plus, it keeps the skin on your hands, feet and nips from wrinkling up! I also use a minimal amout of make-up- mascara and gloss only most days. With beautiful skin there's little need for foundation/concealer. But, for blemishes I swear by Bare Minerals. They're natural and amazing. Hope this helps :)
I am a big fan of clinque. They have a foaming facial wash that is perfect for my skin. I follow with Dove moisturizer with SPF15. Again it works great on my skin. For all of you who wax your eyebrows, just remember if you do it often you can increase wrinkle development around the eyes. Personally, I pluck most of the time and about 2x a year I get them waxed to reshape and clean up the strays. Qt

I just go to walmart or the drug store, buy whatever cosmetics seem interesting, and give them a try. Experimenting with different cosmetics has probably been the best way I've learned what works for me and what doesn't.
The only secret I can share (and it's not really much of a secret) is to moisturize and use sunscreen everyday.
If anyone has any good product info they'd like to share...I'm all ears. I'm a total girlie girl and love this stuff!

Talk to my parents girl! *LMAO* Although Mary Kay seems to work fairly well. I've been reading glamour tips online as well and just going from there. Most of my makeup is experimental, that's why I want other tips. I'd love to know how to do the mascara and eyeliner to make the "cat" eyes. So...to quote you..."(Somebody help me!) ^_~
Lipstick that lasts: Avon Perfect Wear
lasts 6-8 hours.
Getting rid of blackheads or reduce large pores: Use a handheld steamer
on your face to open the pores up
then use a handheld pore cleaner
that literally cleans out the pores
dirt. Then use a pore refining mask
to close the pores again.
