There's something that I love. And that's makeup! Though most of them don't work and are useless. Luckily there are a few nice brands. I'm currently using MAC's Studio Fix. It gives you a nice matte, smooth look. It's kinda pricey hehe. Here's a pic from there site. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/love4.gif

Hopefully the effects don't look like the ones you have on your avatar http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/clown.gif

The make-up pic looks cool though. I don't need make-up,but when I get out and want to put some,I love good quality ones, and not always the most priciest.
Maybeline and Loreal are good http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/c-5.gif

Gothic makeup is a bother sometimes. But I always wear it anyways.

I love fake eyelashes...I had to start wearing them because I pulled all my real eyelashes out (I'm OCD and chronically pull hair out) and now I just really love them. I just bought some fun glow-in-the-dark ones today... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/c-5.gif

Fake eyelashes are so much fun. They really change the way you look. I mostly wear them out to night clubs. Glowing lashes in the dark sounds so much fun. :cool:

My entire makeup set is basically Black eyeliner and sometimes lipstick. I don't wear alot, but when I don't have my eyeliner I go crazy.

I can live without eye liner but I know my mom can't! She doesn't wear foundation but she's a huge fan of eye liner! I know she loves it.

Btw I ordered another studio fix...only because I got a free shipping & handling code :D . I'm using the NC15 shade. I didn't even have to go to their store to figure out my skintone. I'm relatively light but this seem to work best. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/love4.gif

I very well may die without eyeliner.

I also like to do tears like Benji from GC...I usually do them in either black or red eyeliner or in red or blue glitter. It's fun.

Red Glitter! :eek: I must see it! Where'd you get that? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/jumper.gif

Red Glitter (http://www.hottopic.com/store/product.asp?LS=0&ITEM=281042&RN=191)

I love this stuff because it's water-based, and the water will eventually evaporate but that allows you to add as much (or little) water as you want to make whatever concentration of glitter you want. They have a lot of other colors too, like silver, fuchsia, blue, and green. Hot Topic always has the best makeup...

Aaah, make-up :D
Hehe. Im not obsessed with it or anything and i usually put just some powder and eye mascara. (when i go to shcool or shoppin, for example. at free time, none) If i'd go to party, i'd put powder, mascara, lip gloss, maybe some eye liner and stuff. but make-up can really save u sometimes! :D

I think that if you're going to wear make-up, quality REALLY matters and yes, it means more expensive stuff. And never, ever forget a quality make-up remover! I've seen too many girls who ruined their skin completely by wearing cheap powder and not cleaning it all off their faces.

Now, being a poor student that I am, all the make-up I own is a black mascara, a white eye-pencil (if applied skillfully it does wonders on making you eyes look bigger and prettier http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif ) and a lip gloss. It's quite enough for me http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

One thing I've never understood was foundation. Everyone at my school wears it, and it really makes their faces break out, so its kinda a farce. They put it on to cover up their break outs, and in return it causes more......really smart :rolleyes:

I tried it a few times and it was like I couldn't breath, or that I had ketchup on my face. I never wore it again, and my skin looks the best now compared to everyone I know who does. :D

I wear Clinque makeup, and not too much of it. Im not big on makeup, except when it comes to lipgloss. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

I know this is a girl's topic, but I just wanted to say that men notice too much makeup more than we notice no makeup.

i used to wear eye liner but now i'm just on eye shadow, that's probably all i wear now, sometimes lipgloss but the one i have sticks my hair onto my lips. And can anyone recommend me what kind of eye makeup should i wear if i'm asian----meaning i have small eyes with no eyelid and they don't go into your face as deep as other people. That's right, i have nooooooo eyelids!

Lmao galaxia! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/clown.gif
You should always wear something not too much dark,but not to much shiny either; or else you'r gonna look like a night lady http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/silent.gif http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif . Natural colors are always a good start to begin with.
Practice and see what looks the best on you...number one rule.

Make-up....well it's something I don't put alot of effort in if I'm just staying at home.....
If I go somewhere I just use black mascara, and clear lipgloss.
That's all I need! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif
I'm always concerned though if my hair looks ok or not, I usually always wear my hair down (I have long blonde hair - typical swedish person I guess http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif ), but greasy hair is for me a big no!!! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif

ahhhh makeup http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/jumper.gif

im in loveee with my max factor volumizing mascara.. it *shocker* actually works!! my eye lashes are wayyyy too long but they dont have any volume. i forget the name of the mascara but it works!

i absolutely love my milani eyeshadow. its a bright lime green and somewhat sparkly. i also have this hot pink blush. the colors are intense but if you apply it lightly it doesnt look that right pink but a nice pinkish.
the eyeshadow is like this but more sparkly and more of a yellow
http://www.walgreens.com/dbimagecache/173927.jpg
this is another one of my favorite milani blushes
http://www.walgreens.com/dbimagecache/111966.gif
and the other blush..
http://www.walgreens.com/dbimagecache/104355.gif

**sigh** i could go on forever with all the makeup i have. but those are my favs. i have 1 huge bag full of makeup and 2 smaller ones w/ my favorite stuff in it.

i cant go without wearing some concealer, powder, eyeliner and mascara. what cant you girls go without??

btw, the max factor lip finity stuff is AMAZING. i have it in "delicious"
http://www.walgreens.com/dbimagecache/62334.gif

^^ oo and i forgot to add :
all of this makeup you can get from a walgreens or drug store. the miliani blush and eyeshadow is about 3-5 dollars. the max factor mascara is 7 and the lipstick was 10... but not that prices matter http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif i love all of the M∙A∙C eyeshadows. i will one day buy some. i might sometime soon with all this b-day money hehe i love bright intense eyeshadows!
