I thought it was about time there was a complete thread for makeup. So, this is one I made, and you know you wanna contribute.    

What brand makeup do you use?

I use..
Foundation: Maybelline Matte Mousse
Blush: Covergirl Instant Cheekbones
Mascara: Rimmel Magnif'EYE'r
Eyeliner: Prestige in Very Black
Powder: Covergirl
Lip balm: Bonne Bell Big Ones in Vanilla
Lip gloss/colour: Models Prefer
Eyeshadow: BYS Bronze Shimmer.

What would you highly recommend?

I would recommend...
I spent so long trying to find a good blush, and almost gave up until I found Covergirls Instant Cheekbones. Go out. And get it. NOW. It's about $10AU but worth every single penny, I got the bronze/peach coloured one, and it's so smooth. <3
I've never even been one to gush about products or whatever, because I always found that lame.
But.
Rimmel Magnifeyers Mascara. Heaven sent, approved by God himself! Fucking fantastic, the brush is amazing and it goes on so evenly.

Other products...
Nail Polish: Maybelline Wet Shine in Clear Diamond.
Straightening Product: Davroe Hot Stuff (Awesome)
Wax: Sunsilk


I think I have found a mix of the best products ever.
All I really need to improve on now is my foundation, cos mine sucks.
Oh, and a 'main' eyeshadow would be fantastic.


Share your stories, tips, tricks, whatever. What's your usual makeup? Brands?
What would you recommend, and what would you desperately like to try?

What's the difference between mineral makeup and normal makeup?

Mineral makeup is in a powder form and doesn't contain anything that's not a natural mineral found in the earth.  Like their foundation only contains Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxide, Zinc Oxide, (may contain Ultramarines).  Regular makeup contains a bit of EVERYTHING.  

My skin has actually cleared up since I started using mineral makeup, and it covers waaaaaaaaaaaay better than my old liquid foundation.

Check them out if you get bored.  They have a FAQ section and stuff.

I use:
Foundation: Rimmel London Recover Foundation
Blush: Givenchy Prism Again! or No7 Blush Tint
Mascara: No7 Lift and Curve Mascara  
Eyeliner: No7 Amazing Eyes Pencil or Rimmel London Soft Kohl
Lip balm: Vaseline
Lip gloss/colour: Natural Collection Juicy Lips in Fondant
Eyeshadow:  Rimmel London Colour Rush in Delicate Rose
Bronzer: Maybelline dream mousse bronzer in bronze
Highlighter: Benefit High Beam
Nail Varnish:  Natural Collection Nail Colour in Pink Manicure

I would recommend:
Rimmel London Recover Foundation (£6.49)- This is really good if you have clear skin as its very sheer and leaves your skin looking really fresh, I would imagine though that someone with spottier skin might want something that gives a bit more coverage.  What I really like about this product is that it glistens slightly in the sun, it has little shimmery particles in that highlight your cheekbones.  

No7 Lift and Curve Mascara - its really good, it does exactly what it says but its still really light so your eyelashes don't look cloggy and stick together.  Its only sold in Boots stores in England though and its quite expensive (£9.50).

I use alot of natural collection, no7 and 17 products because I work at Boots so I get higher staff discount off of Boots own labels, hehe, I would reccomend them though, I've never been dissapointed with anything I've tried.

My makeup bag isn't particularly impressive. I'm constantly swapping old products for new products to play around to find better ones. But at the moment it is:

Foundation - MaxFactor Lasting Performance, in Pastelle. Am going to try Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse next though, as a large number of people have recommended it to me.
Concealer - Rimmel Hide The Blemish, in Sand. Am going to swap to a Barbara Daly Tesco concealer next though, as I've read lots of wonderful reviews about it in magazines.
Powder - Barbara Daly Tesco pressed powder - absolutely AMAZING, which I really didn't expect from Tesco makeup. I bought it on recommendation and it's great.
Blush - Maybelline expertwear blush - alright, I suppose.
Mascara - At the moment, No7 Intense Volume. It's okay. I've tried millions of mascaras and never been particularly impressed though.
Pencil Eyeliner - Rimmel. Good. I use some Barry M pencil eyeliners on nights out, but haven't been particularly impressed with them either.
Liquid Eyeliner - Rimmel. I use some Urban Decay Heavy Metal eyeliners when going out at night though.
Eyeshadow - I use millions of eyeshadows, as I'm big into doing up my eyes. I love my Barry M eyeshadows, and my Urban Decay too. I've quite a few good Loreal eyeshadows too. And many, many more.
Lip gloss - I'm not big into doing up my lips, as I have small lips =( I would normally use a 17 lipgloss tube thing that my friend Ciara got me. It's fairly good for quite a natural sheen.

Foundation: Clinique Gentle Light (In "candleglow" - which I think is meant to be a nice way of saying 'paler than an albino goth'..and it's still too dark for me). It's really great make-up, but looks so much better when applied with a foundation brush. Uhh..YSL perfect touch is better though.

Diorshow blackout mascara which is amazing and you get loads of free crap with it.

Benetint. People go on about how amazing this is but it's actually quite shit, it looks like food colouring on your cheeks and stains your fingers. The problem is it lasts for aeons and I'd feel awful throwing it away.

& sometimes a little touche eclat (which, btw, is the greatest product you will ever buy. You can also get different SHADES in the U.S! Wow. It only comes in one colour here..)

Eyeliner: MAC eyeshadow
Mascara: Right now Maybelline. I need to get a new one.
Powder: Clinique.
Lip balm: Burt's Bees.

Katy, I really wouldn't bother with the foundation, it is absolutely gorgeous when you first get it, but by the 'middle mark' of the tub, it does nothing as good as it did before for your skin.

YSL is my BITCH. They make the most precious and flattering lip colours, not to mention my favourite mattifying powder.  

I'm not at all a foundation girl. I find that if I work hard to achieve it, I can achieve fantastic skin tone, to the point where I need no coverup. That's the way I like it, personally, because I feel makeup works best on a good base. I'll use a little illuminator and mattifying powder, but I can't stand foundation, as my skin changes a lot, and I don't like the feel of most foundations. Not to mention my skin tans and fades really easily.  

I also do striking eye colours. Fyrinnae, MAC PRO pigments, and MAC PRO liners are my personal favourites. Emerald green is my gem, as well as any gold-hued blacks, medium greens, warm golds and rose golds. Some shades of sea blue-green also work for me, but blue is VERY tricky. Its taken me years of experimentation to find my perfect shades. As for mascara? I was blessed with a tonne of really thick, long eyelashes, so I just curl them on special occasions, and I'm right to go!  

I love a good lipstick. My current favourite is YSL Lip Twins, in Fuschia/Orange. Its a divine duo, the pink is really bold, silky, and perfect for my skin tone [I'm actually what you might call a perfectly neutral skin tone. I'm Eurasian, and proud!], and the smooth orange gloss is a fantastic little pop of colour. Love.  

[Mac also do a lipstick or two that I love... Chic, Chili and Russian Red are a few that I wear regularly.]

Foundation: Loreal trublend/pure liquid.
Eyeliner: Revlon Colourstay (I believe it is revlon).
Blush: CoverGirl.
Eyeshadow: Physician's Formula (amazing).
Mascara: Max Factor, Loreal, Revlon, depending on what mood I'm in.
Lipstick/gloss: Clinique, Wet n' Wild lip gloss, or just chapstick.


Dream Matte Mousse dried my skin out and eventually became clumpy in the jar. It was basically a waste of my money in the longrun, but it was awesome when I first opened it.
I want to order Bare Minerals, but until someone transfers some money to me, I can't.

Please don't.  It contains an ingredient called bismuth oxychloride which can make you very itchy, and it generally isn't great for your skin.  They use it because it's a cheap filler.  You would think that the massive amount of money they charge would mean you're getting a quality product, but really it isn't.

I also speak from experience on this.  I used bare minerals for almost a year until I decided I couldn't the itchyness anymore.  Then I found Everyday Minerals and fell in love.  The makeup covers better and it doesn't have worthless crap in it.  Plus they will send you free samples (of which you get to choose the colors).
