How do you keep your eye shadow on?January 30, 2011 3:21 am at 3:21 am #734208eclipseMember
I don’t use it,but I heard there’s a spray?January 30, 2011 3:24 am at 3:24 am #734209BEST IMAParticipant
Theres an eye shadow base thats very good it keeps it on for a long time. You can use a dab of regular base that works good too.January 30, 2011 3:25 am at 3:25 am #734210yentingyentaParticipant
have you tried putting base on the eyelids? that usually works for meJanuary 30, 2011 3:31 am at 3:31 am #734211
Tried base…didn’t work too well. Gonna look into the spray. Eclipse – you know what it’s called?January 30, 2011 3:45 am at 3:45 am #734212hudiParticipant
Put moisturizer on the eyelids, let it dry, and then put on shadow.January 30, 2011 4:10 am at 4:10 am #734213cofeefanMember
i have issues keeping my eye liner on the shadow for me stays when i put base on lids but my liner always comes off on shabbos its annoying!January 30, 2011 4:41 am at 4:41 am #734214
Try waterproof ones. Chances are they’ll stay on better.January 30, 2011 5:25 am at 5:25 am #734215
Eyeshadow primer. Works like magic.January 30, 2011 5:48 am at 5:48 am #734216
I did that! No magic for me 🙁January 30, 2011 5:51 am at 5:51 am #73421717wannabeParticipant

Good mascara, anyone? I HATE my mascara. If I touch my eyes or sleep with it on, I find tons of black little pieces crumbled all over my face.January 30, 2011 2:41 pm at 2:41 pm #734220
Believe it or not, Maybelline has some excellent mascaras.
The old standby (which is recommended by models and their makeup artists)Great Lash, is one of them. I get the waterproof kind.
As to eye shadow, here is a tip : first put on a cream shadow then “set” it with the same color in powder.January 30, 2011 2:51 pm at 2:51 pm #734221
Which one did you use? Try Prime Time by Bare Escentuals. I know a lot of people use the Urban Decay primer… not a fan.
I always buy “drug store” mascara. Maybelline Volum’ Express is great, it’ll stay on for 2 days if you dont scrub it off!January 30, 2011 2:53 pm at 2:53 pm #734222
I’m with oomis on mascara. It’s well known that Maybelline is excellent.January 30, 2011 3:05 pm at 3:05 pm #734223The Coffee BeanMember
smartcookie: maybelline has a 24hr bold mascara-its one of the double ended ones. it rlly stays put!January 30, 2011 3:11 pm at 3:11 pm #734224
Never tried the Maybelline mascara. Is it very heavy and thick looking on the eyes? I don’t like that look. If not, I’ll go to the pharmacy today IY’H.January 30, 2011 4:06 pm at 4:06 pm #734225The Coffee BeanMember
Not heavy. If it’s clunky Comb ur lashes w/ the free mascara wands from makeup storesJanuary 30, 2011 4:46 pm at 4:46 pm #734226cofeefanMember
i like the maybelline mascara too. stays on for days!
i tried waterproof liner it doesnt stay on!!!!January 30, 2011 9:12 pm at 9:12 pm #734227mischiefmakerMember
I need a good, oil free, long lasting cover-up (bad acne).The ones I use come off very easily and don’t really cover up well. Anyone?January 30, 2011 9:26 pm at 9:26 pm #734228yentingyentaParticipant
try clinique superbalanced makeup. it costs a bit much but I’ve been using it for a few years and never had a breakout from it like other bases.January 30, 2011 9:36 pm at 9:36 pm #734229
Ok I bought the Maybelline mascara. I’ll try it tomorrow IY’H.
Mischeif- I like the Mary Kay Creme to Powder base. It’s a thick paste versus liquid. Very good cover up.January 30, 2011 10:21 pm at 10:21 pm #734230
i tried waterproof liner it doesnt stay on!!!! “
Max Factor which is no longer producing their makeup, as I heard, had excellent waterproof liner called Linemaker. You might be able to still order it on-line. NYC also makes aliner pencil which is very long-lasting and waterproof, and there is a gel liner in a small round pot (I think it is also Maybelline or L’Oreal) that I used that was very good.January 30, 2011 10:22 pm at 10:22 pm #734231Wondering…Member
Anyone use le sourcil de chanel, the eybrow kit?? worth it?? and any comments on jane iredale liquid foundation?? thanks..January 30, 2011 10:22 pm at 10:22 pm #734232
For badly scarred skin really needing good coverage, Dermablend is excellent. It is now sold under the company Logo of Vichy at most CVS stores.January 31, 2011 1:32 am at 1:32 am #734233mybatMember
If u have bad acne you should definitely to a good dermatologist. Hell send you prescription medicine especially targeted towards your problem. There are a lot of treatments including special creams and pills. If you take the right treatment you probably won’t have to deal with acne ever again. Good luck!
And the maybelline mascaras are definitely the best!!January 31, 2011 3:54 am at 3:54 am #734234
Clinique has a cover up that’s pretty good. Not sure what the name is though. Sorry.January 31, 2011 4:05 am at 4:05 am #734235
Hey, Mybat! Nice to hear from you after such a long while!January 31, 2011 4:09 am at 4:09 am #734236OfcourseMember
1- Which liquid foundation for dry skin, is the best? Fragrance free preferred.
2- Who does a good make-up consultation for a teen, just learning for the first time, in BP/Flatbush?January 31, 2011 5:01 am at 5:01 am #734237cshapiroMember
love this thread….i was wondering what people think of red lipstick, i usually just wear light colored gloss but i tried my sisters red lipstick and i thought it looked cool but is red lipstick classy or tacky?? is it for 84 year old grandmas who wish they were 22?January 31, 2011 5:45 am at 5:45 am #734238
I’m with tacky. Most young people can’t pull off the look too well.January 31, 2011 1:47 pm at 1:47 pm #734239passion4musicMember
The last 2/3 years I’ve been seeing younger women wearing red, not everyone can pull it off but a lot of people can. If u get a red that’s good for your coloring and put a little lip gloss on it, it can be very pretty.January 31, 2011 2:31 pm at 2:31 pm #734240
I hate red lipstick. Looks much too fake.January 31, 2011 2:37 pm at 2:37 pm #734241
Clinique Superfit (they have one for dry skin)
I usually go w a nude lip, but I dont think red is tacky. However, if you are questioning if you can pull it off it is probably not for you, a bold lip is one of those things that you need a lot of confidence to pull off and when you dont have it it shows.January 31, 2011 5:06 pm at 5:06 pm #734242
ok: a few ppl hav disagreed with me on this.. so i have to get it out- it gets me so nervous when girls with very blond hair and eyebrows/lashes wear black eyeliner! i feel like it looks so unnatural and heavy for ther skin tone and hair, and a brown or softer color does wonders..January 31, 2011 5:32 pm at 5:32 pm #734243
Sometimes grunge is the look they are going for…January 31, 2011 5:46 pm at 5:46 pm #734244
Sac-i dont know about purposely…but dressed all in black thats the look they get!!January 31, 2011 6:14 pm at 6:14 pm #734245
It *bothers* me more when I see people whose makeup is still stuck in the 80s.January 31, 2011 6:31 pm at 6:31 pm #734246
OOO i thought of another thing- (hey this is gettin fun) contrasting lip liner and lip stick is outdated!! please stop! lol sorry if im offending a o..January 31, 2011 6:38 pm at 6:38 pm #734247
Not to be a racist… but I think that problem is contained to the “Latin” community.
(Lip liner is so 90s)January 31, 2011 7:05 pm at 7:05 pm #734248
i guess u arent exposed to the number of woman i see all the time who chose ther makeup palette (in the 90s) and found what they liked so stuck with it! doesnt work with everything- gotta keep freshing up the look!January 31, 2011 7:22 pm at 7:22 pm #734249not IMember
I agree wbout the blondes wearing black mascara.. What is the point.
Make up is supposed to bring out the natural beauty of the weare no? But how unnatural could you get?
Almost as bad as dark ppl dying their hair blonde.. HELP!!January 31, 2011 7:40 pm at 7:40 pm #734250twistedParticipant
Hello people. As a gentleman, I do not enter the Ezrat Nashim threads unless I feel it is l’toeles harabim. I promise I did not look at anything but the titles, and went straight to the bottom to post. This is my makeup tip: use it at your own risk. I know that I am arguing against human nature, and that makeup use was normative in the time of the Mishna. The issue is the provenance of the raw material. I clean drains for a living, and in my long career, I dealt with many commercial systems. In the food manufacture industry in general, nothing thrown away and some use is found for all wastes. In commercial food, the drains are protected from grease by grease traps, tanks that accumulate the oils and fats, and separate them from the waste flow. These traps must be and emptied every so often, and what comes out of them is the most putrid and noxious stuff on the planet. It is a regulated waste,and it cannot be landfilled or otherwise discarded. The answer to this problem is the cosmetics industry which cooks, sanitizes and resells it as your favorite makeup. In the NY metro area the big green pumper trucks that suck out the big operations end their route at the Revlon intake plant in NJ.
Now, tachlis: If you are the type to avoid food stuff that had hundreds of technical changes made to it, or if you avoid putting things into your body because they have too long an ingredient list, then you should extend this care to what you put on your exterior. Skin,and certainly skin with high vascular and lymph traffic, absorbs things. Blessings for long and healthy lifeJanuary 31, 2011 8:40 pm at 8:40 pm #734251OfcourseMember
twisted, R’ Blumenkrantz a”h was a BAKI on all the ingredients found in make-up, and if he would have felt it was that dangerous, I think he would have let us women know.January 31, 2011 9:29 pm at 9:29 pm #734252RaisedEyebrowMember
I’m a bit late, but I just read thru the “girl” threads… re: the color of your eyeliner-
I also have large eyes, light colored and am very conservative. You should realize that black eyeliner for such eyes is actually the least conservative… it is the most striking actually.
Why don’t you try a pewter/dark grey color. Try a low-end pharmacy brand to try and see how you look & feel with it on…
When using COLOR as opposed to black, you should use pencil (not gel or liquid) because it will blend with your eye & lashes much more nicely and affords a more beautiful and polished look- it is less sharp but much more enhancing, sometimes even achieves that ‘glow’.
Using a dark grey, with well blended, soft eyeshadow (I only put in the corner of my eyes) + a good mascara (not clumpy) is really pretty with just enough umph (not humdrum, but not too attracting either- simply beautiful & pleasing to look at).
Don’t be afraid to try it- it’s so much fun… play around with the colors, you’ll begin to appreciate what you can really do with your features… just don’t apply it too thick!
And btw- what that guy in the other thread suggested- navy blue- is actually a great idea (but make sure its smooth pencil- not too sharp).
PPS- I have a friend who wears a stunning moss green eyeliner, you can not tell its that color, it just enhances her eyes so beautifully… it looks almost light grey. She wears just a bit of mascara. The effect is stunning.January 31, 2011 9:40 pm at 9:40 pm #734253
