What is your favorite makeup item?
« on: October 28, 2018, 02:24:04 pm »
What is your favorite makeup item?  Okay, you do not have to narrow this to just one item.
You can also mention other beauty products, such as creams, cleansers and exfoliants, but I will stick to makeup.

I enjoy lipstick.  I go for the natural daytime look rather than a party look. 
I prefer the lighter shades because they are more appealing to me for my lips than the darker shades.

I do always start the day with a clean face, and then I moisturize it. 

Lipstick is easy to put on, no fuss.

Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

I am heading out this morning to a medical appointment and I will wear my basic makeup...Liquid Eyeliner, Mascara and lippy...the rest I can live without...maybe some BB cream if I am too lazy to put on proper foundation...I have to say I don't usually get glammed up to go to the hospital.... :laugh:

Take care

Liz

I noticed that some lip balm is actually tinted like lipstick, not simply flavored.
That is nice.

Eyebrow spoolie - because I can comb and shape my eyebrows and then brush my eyelashes (long naturally) up and give them some curl.

I admit that I have not successfully learned how to apply good looking eyelash makeup.  I like the natural look, where it appears that little makeup is actually on. 

But I will learn this important eyelash makeup skill, as it eventually will be a skill needed to give myself the appropriate look.  Brows I can do, but that is not hard to figure out.

I have found liquid eyeliner far easier to apply than any others I have tried, I do use a kohl on my lower lid...but the liquid I find easier to get on consistently and straight.

False lashes.  They just change everything.
I like mascara too.

Hair ribbons, with nails color a close second.

Jin,

I have not thought of hair ribbons as makeup but I do for sure think they are a wonderful beauty item!  Yes, I really like them!  I also think the little hair barrettes are so cute!  I bought two small ones today and look forward to seeing them in my hair.

I tend to go very easy on makeup...  for myself I do not like the plastered-on look at all.  I also very seldom use eyeliners and mascara.  I do like lip gloss and pastel colors of lipsticks.  Nail polish can be anything but I usually like the various mauve, pink and red colors.  Very lightly applied concealer and other face makeup sometimes but not always.

Of course... feminine adornments such as necklaces, rings, bracelets, hair bands, hair ribbons, etc are always a nice thing.

Me too on using little makeup and liking the nice hair accessories and more adornments.

I tried curling eyelashes and applying mascara yesterday, but I messed up with the mascara again and got some misplaced.  I am glad it was clear mascara this time. 

My favorite makeup item is lipstick, and my recently discovered tinted lip balm is nice too.
I do keep my skin clean and moist.  I think that is a good idea, using makeup or not.

I am an absolute novice in any kind of makeup skills.  i can do lip stick and I like the more natural slightly darker colors.  Everything else is done by one or more of my girlfriends, who decided to become my transition godmothers!  Whenever we go out, one or two of them work at my face and my wig!

Everyone starts out as a novice.  It just takes practice, time, and patience.  But you don't need a full face of makeup to look beautiful.  You already are!

I really like eye shadow and mascara. The eyes are the center focus of attention on anyone's face. So any help there goes a long way. I think that lip color is a close second.

i don't know how you ladies do this with your eyes.  Each time when I come close to one of my eyes, I press it shut as hard as I can.  I am just not able to do anything with my lashes or eye lids!  What is your trick?

Practice and then more practice.  It helped me to go and have make overs at Sephora and MAC a few times.

Thanks! You girls are so advanced in this.  I did not even know who or what Sephora is!  I had to do a search for this first!   ???

Eyeshadow and eyeliner for sure. I love  subtle yet smokey eye look. I’ve got nice brown eyes and love to make them stand out more with the right colors and shades. Maybe once I reach the required post count I can show off a little. I’m no makeup expert, but I know my way around a brush set so to speak lol
