superboinkers asked: Hello and I love your blog! Any recommendations for blush brushes (or any makeup brushes in general)? Thank you

Hi, thank you so much!

I almost always use angled blush brushes to apply my cheek color - I like them because they are shaped to the perfect angle of a cheek.  They aren’t too large and apply product precisely, and are dense enough to blend color evenly!

ELF Angled Blush Brush - $3 (eyeslipsface.com)

BH Cosmetics Small Angled Blush Brush - $7 (bhcosmetics.com)

If you prefer a traditional blush brush, I recommend EcoTools and Real Techniques on top of the two brands I listed above.  The bristles on all of their brushes are amazingly soft and the sizes of the brush heads vary so you can find what you need!  I personally prefer smaller brushes.

Hope that helps you! :)

nataliegratzer asked: Do you know of any drugstore dupes for benefit hoola bronzer?

Certainly!  I don’t have any 100% dupes, but two that are very close and very affordable in comparison.

image

Benefit Hoola - $28

This is a satin matte bronzer with neutral undertones that’s good for people with light to medium/tan skin tones.

image

ELF Contouring Blush & Bronzing Duo - $3

The bronzer of this duo is very pigmented and also has a satin matte finish.  There are flecks of glitter on the surface of the pan but these don’t translate onto the skin.  The color is very similar to that of Hoola and of Nars Laguna bronzer… somewhere in the middle.  You also get this beautiful coral/peach blush as well, making this compact a real bargain!

image

NYC Smooth Skin “Sunny” Bronzer - $3

This is the bronzer that everyone shouts from the heavens about saying that it’s a perfect dupe.  It is very close, both in color and texture/finish, but it has a tendency to oxidize slightly and can get a little orange-toned if you use too much.  Otherwise it is a gorgeous bronzer and worth well more than $3!

meowmeowbam asked: What would be the best kind of highlighter for someone with incredibly pale skin?

Generally, if you’re using a true highlighter, most will compliment all skin tones.  Highlighters are rather sheer, and mostly colorless - their intent is simply to add a glow and to catch light, not to add color to the skin.  Certainly, there will be some pinky highlighters, and some golden highlighters, and some bronzey highlighters, but none of those will have SO much pigment that they will look badly on your (or any) skin tone.  You don’t necessarily want a highlight that is going to have a ton of color.. because then you might as well just buy a shimmery blush or bronzer, right?

To be completely sure that your highlighter is right for your skin tone, go by your undertone (If you don’t know your undertone, look here)  If you have warm, yellow undertones, use a cream-colored highlight with a slightly golden finish.  If you have a cool, pink undertone, pick a color that has a slightly pink tinge.  Champagne-colored highlighters will work for all skin tones, as long as they are sheer.

Makeup Tips You NEED to Know!

5 Different Ways to Apply Blush - by GossMakeupArtist

—————————————————-

Method 1: HIGH ON THE CHEEK BONES
GOOD FOR:
Round faces, and those wanting to give the illusion that your cheeks bones are higher than they really are.

NOT SO GOOD FOR:
Very Defined cheek bones as it can make the face appear too narrow. 

Method 2: APPLE OF THE CHEEKS
GOOD FOR:Thin faces, and those wanting to increase volume in the face.


NOT SO GOOD FOR:
Very found faces, and it can make the face look rounder. Also, those will fine lines or wrinkles as smiling causes the face to “line” and can make blusher (powder) go into the fine lines. Blusher to the apples of the cheeks is a technique known in film and theatre to “age” a person.

Method 3: HORIZONTAL LINES
GOOD FOR: 
Thin faces wanting to increase volume in the face. Also good for those with tanned skin.

NOT SO GOOD FOR:
Those with very pronounced cheek bones.

Method 4: CHEEK BONES & TEMPLES
GOOD FOR: 
Lifting the face and giving the illusion of higher cheek bones. My favourite way of applying blush. Great with a fake or real tan.

NOT SO GOOD FOR:
Very defined cheek bones as it can over “thin” the face.

Method 5: VERTICAL BLUSH
GOOD FOR: 
Widening a thin face. Great for a natural flushed appearance.

NOT SO GOOD FOR:
Overly round faces as it can make the face appear rounder.

At the end of the day, play around, see what looks best. See what looks prettiest. And have fun.  It’s only makeup :)

thiswillmakeyousmile asked: hi there! i was wondering if you could tell me a nice matte highlighter? i have oily skin and shimmery highlighter tend to make my skin look really greasy but i haven't found a good matte one yet.. :(

There aren’t many really affordable matte highlighters available, so it would be silly to shell out a ton of money.  I use a matte highlighter all the time, and all I use is a white or cream colored eyeshadow!  It does the same thing, and you can find them for much less than you would an actual highlighter.  And of course you can use them on your eyes as well!

I’ve been using an ELF Brightening Eye Pot that is really amazing, but I’ve just realized they only come in the “Get the Look” sets, so I guess I can’t recommend that.

Milani Runway Eyes Wet/Dry Eyeshadow in Lily White - $5

NYX Single Eyeshadow in White - $5  (used this for ages)

There are also great highlighting colors in the Wet n Wild Color Icon trios & 8 pan palettes.  The whole palette is only $3-$5!

takeitwithme asked: Have you tried any of the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Cutom Glow Blush and Bronzer combos? What did you think?

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Custom Glow - $9

Hello :)

I have one, which I purchased quite a while ago.  Of course I can’t speak for all of the shades offered, I did like the blush color that came with it!  It is a really pretty coral shade with a satin finish, and is nicely pigmented. (Natural Glow, I think it’s called… I’m not in the mood to go digging through my blush drawer to find it, haha) They are very smooth to apply and look very natural on the skin (not powdery).  However I don’t particularly care for the bronzer, simply because the one that I had was a bit orange-toned.  If I had selected a different duo, perhaps it would have been great as well!

The formula of them is very nice and did not cause any skin issues for me.  The idea of this kit is very handy - you have a separate blush and bronzer that you can use separately, or you can blend the two shades together to truly make the “custom glow”.  The colors themselves are rather buildable.

The only true negative to this was the small brush that came with it… it wasn’t soft or nicely shaped, and really detracted from the overall blush experience.  But I didn’t purchase the duo for the brush, anyway!

Overall I think they’re really great (and all of the other reviews I’ve read have been wholly positive as well), and I would recommend them.  :)
