Why hello! I don't know if I would call myself an aficionado but I do loves me some make up!Latest buy was the younique 3D fibre lashes. I know, not a big name brand my any means but I just had a friend become a consultant and I was curious. I quite like it! I especially like that it doesn't run or sweat off like others have done. And it does make my lashes really longer.

Any time anyone comments on my skin, I'm wearing that foundation.
Doesn't work on overly oily skin and is a light to medium coverage.
I agree with twinklify - go to one of the counters and let them pamper you.
I've had success with Chanel, Armani, bobbi brown foundations! Pricey but worth it!
Or bourjois healthy mix and bourjois healthy mix serum foundations are lovely! And about a third of the price. Their colours are also good. I'm fair skin, neutral undertones and in winter 52 is perfect for me. In summer, 53 is great.
@GucciDahling - you say you have fair skin - are we talking so fair your skin is practically translucent and you could glow under a black light? I ask because I am that fair, and I've really struggled to find a foundation that suits my skin. The only one I've been using is the body shop moisture foundation in 01. I have to confess to giving up looking for others once I found one!

My skin doesn't like liquid foundation, so I stay away from it unless it's a formal occasion.
I'm going through a love of Chanel makeup at the moment, so use their pencil eye liner, mascara, lipsticks and blush.
Dior powder. Urban Decay eye primer.
Previously I used to use MAC eye products, but twice I had their liquid liner dry out on me in a short amount of time, so I gave up. I also found the wear of their eye shadows wasn't long enough for me.
I've been wearing MAC eye makeup for about 15 years now. Occasionally I'll try other brands but for my eyes I'm a MAC lover through and through. I've also got their primer and foundation for going out. I'm a bit promiscuous with mascara, but the one I tried recently that I want to get again because it was really good is Nutrimetics.
I wear makeup every day, would never leave the house without at least mascara and lipstick. Every day I wear eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, blush, eyebrow pencil and L'Oréal Colorstay lipstick (don't have to touch it up all day, love it). It doesn't take long at all to put my makeup on.
We are down to one income at the moment so the only thing I splurge on is the MAC eyeshadow and blush. I'm happy to use cheaper brands for most other items like eyeliner, eyebrow pencil etc. The lipstick is another thing I won't compromise on, has to be the L'Oréal. And I need to get more mascara so I'll have to contact my Nutrimetics person soon.
This is my kind of thread! I loveeeeee make up!
Who knows really though- it is Pinterest after all! I would be annoyed if my eyeliners did that to me, too. We pay enough for makeup in Aus as it is. I see Americans whinge about their prices all the time and just think "if only!"
Does anyone else here go bold with their eyeliner? I used to be very brave with it pre-kids (when I went out to pubs and clubs regularly) but ever since I've had kids I've tamed it down a lot. I'm sort of talking like Adele style liner. I suppose the main difference is I don't go anywhere to wear it like that these days... Never mind me. I've been awake since 4:30 and I think it's starting to take effect...
