Mascara light

Hi Makeup Fairy
I don't use a lot of makeup, and what I do use I like to look pretty natural. I have a hard time finding a good mascara that doesn't glue my eyelashes together or look too heavy. I usually unscrew the cap, then wipe the brush on a tissue to get most of the mascara off the brush before I use it, but even then everything seems to end up clumping them together a bit...
Do you have any suggestions?
Thanks!!

Have you tried a clear mascara?
As in, no colour?
Several makeup companies make them, and they're good for defining without looking like you have spiderlegs glued to your eyelids!

On another note...... I bought Garnier's Perfect Blur the other day to try.
LoveloveLOVE!
This stuff really does exactly what it says it does..... Blurs out small imperfections and lines.
Now a MUST HAVE in my skincare routine!

I'm no makeup fairy, but that strikes me as counter productive. If you're wiping mascara off on a tissue, I would imagine it would compress the bristles of the wand, which would change their functionality (even temporarily).

Have you tried thinning the mascara with a few eye drops in the tube?

Other than that, I can't think of anything to suggest outside of technique, because I find that if I'm not "sweeping" mascara on the right way, it looks gloopier than I want (and I start over). But if I sweep it on (in a way I've been doing for so long I can't describe), it's all good.

I've always used plain old drug store Maybeline mascaras - not necessarily the lines that are length focused, not "volume" focused, as I have better luck with them.

Miss Lash-Arachaphobe,

Have you considered eyelash tinting? It's a semi-permanent process done in salons and spas that will literally DYE your lashes black, so you get color with NO CLUMPS!

Clear mascara is a great option, but if you're looking to get actual color on those lashes, tinting is a great method! You need to go in every 4-8 weeks for touchups, depending on how fast your lashes shed naturally.

For more info, check WebMD's post about safety and tinting lashes here:

http://www.webmd.com/beauty/eyes/is-...ows-and-lashes

And here's a video with a LOT of information about tinting lashes (and brows) and the absolutely sweet lady in it explains what you need to do, what to expect, and what the process looks like.

Miss Curious About Natural Skin Care,

GLOminerals is a fantastic brand, it's been around for over 10 years and is still selling strong, which is a good sign! It was created by a skin care specialist and reviewed by doctors, dermatologists especially, and esthetiticans, and almost all of their products have fantastic reviews. Of course, not every skin care and makeup line is perfect so you're bound to find a few duds, but overall the Brand is a great one.

As for Eminance Organic Skin Care, I'm not impressed. I checked out the ingredients list on a few items and I found their "care" to be lacking, plus the line has NOT gotten good reviews. You're better off going with better brands like Botanics and Origins Organics.

The brush and the eye drops tips make perfect sense. I will try them both.

Thanks CM!

Hi Makeup Fairy!
I use a foundation that comes in a pump bottle. How the heck do I get all the makeup out of the bottle!?! Aaaargh! Seems like I throw a quarter of the darn bottle away each time, and I'm always scared to try and break in to those things because usually the bottle ends up defeating me...
Help?!?

Dear Make-Up Fairy,

Summer is here! And I've been diligent in avoiding the sun (mostly), applying protective sun care (usually) and drinking a lot of water (always). I know I know, bad Breezey...

That said, I have several summer functions I have to attend, including some weddings and the truth is, I am getting bored with my go-to looks. I find that I am in a colour rut, which honestly I'd like to break out of. However, many of eye products are incredibly sparkly, which is not exactly for my personality, age or type. Besides, as having combination-oily skin, I'd like to keep a shine to a minimum.

Because I live where there is winter for 7 months of the year, I usually have darker, heavier eye make-up, but this summer, I am looking for something lighter but no less mysterious and elegant - you know, me . I usually usually use Almay Intense i-Colour in brown, which produces the effects I like (I can either go sheer or dark), but I'd like to try something different, and its not exactly suited for summer destination weddings, nights out in the city and being in the sun.

I was wondering if you have any suggestions, especially with colour that will compliment my eye and skin tone?

Always grateful for this thread. I have such a blast reading it and do take much of your advice. Thank you so much.

Not-so-clueless.



ETA: I know many people suggest blue... but for various reasons, I'd like to stay away from it, although I'd give it another go, if need be.

Dear Bottle-Broken,

I always say that if you can't use all of the product you pay for, you're WASTING MONEY! Generally speaking, I would just go ahead and break that bottle, then scrape out every micron of foundation still left and put it into a portable palette just for these purposes! You can get an empty makeup palette from a company like ZPalette (http://zpalette.com/makeup-z-palette) for UNDER TWENTY DOLLARS for a foundation-sized box, and then you don't have to worry about your foundation going to waste AND you get an adorable decorated box in any style you like!

WARNING: SUPER THIN watery foundations don't do well in these cases. This is best used for thicker, creamier foundations with higher coverage! If you're using a super thin foundation, depot your foundation into a twist-top cosmetic jar! I found these SUPER CHEAP jars that are specifically designed for cosmetics!

http://www.papermart.com/plastic-jars/id=31223-INDEX

Hell, if you're just cheap (like me! ) I'd skip the fancy box and depot everything into the jars. Fancy boxes are pretty but we gotta have our priorities!

I hope this helps!

Dear Bicolor-Curious,

Have you considered going grey?!

Grey not only is a fantastic neutral shade, but some of the prettiest matte eyeshadows come in dozens of grey shades that look amazing on ANY skin tone! I went searching for you, and found several matte greys that would look stunning with your complexion and fiery hair, and in a range of prices that are easy on anyone's budget!

http://www.beauty.com/jouer-powder-e...VZA4ECENdDYBgg

http://www.makeupgeek.com/store/eye-...n-stealth.html

http://www.makeupalley.com/product/s...cay/Eye-Shadow

Not only is grey a summer-friendly neutral that can be easily smoked out with black for fall/winter, but the great thing is it can be used with pink or gold in the spring for a fresh sun-kissed look! It's truly one of the only all-season colors!

That's it for today, Fairy Fans, if you have any other questions please contact me here or anonymously via PM for all your beauty and cosmetic questions!

Ooh, thank you! I love that there are a huge variety that I can chose and play with, plus it'll be great for everything that I have planned for the summer!

I go play now

Thank you

Question about womens' clothing. Is there a specific name for slacks that are tight up top in the hip region, but much looser down by the ankles? Like something someone would wear to a funeral? Or is it just slacks?

I have a question about how to correctly layer products on the face. My trouble is that I have dark circles under my eyes and need a concealer but when I apply foundation over it, the foundation lifts off or mixes with the concealer, essentially removing it. I have tried primers but find the result too cakey and dry for my eye area. I typically apply with fingertips, but need advice about improving my technique... So far "the tired look is the new black" is unsatisfactory!

Ok, what kind of cut do you recommend for someone with long curly hair? Humidity is a beast so short styles never work for me.

Dear Primary Numbers,

Thinnest products come before thickest.

So, that goes something like this:

Toner, Serum, Moisturizer, Primer, foundation, concealer, other cosmetics.


If you've found that your primer is too drying, make sure you're not using an oil-control or anti-acne primer around your eyes. SPECIFICALLY use an eye primer. Yes, this means using two primers instead of one but when you have issues like this sometimes you can't get around it. Urban Decay has a fantastic primer for eyes called "Primer Potion" that helps maintain the integrity of your cosmetics as well as intensifies eyeshadow color and life, and while you may balk at the price at first, a little goes a long way and this tiny bottle lasts MONTHS!

http://www.ulta.com/ulta/a/Urban-Dec...00200000157162

Something you might also consider is not using foundation or concealer around your eyes until your eye makeup is totally finished, that way you aren't wearing anything under your primer except serum/moisturizer.

If you need color correction with your primer, and you're relatively darker skinned (Read:deeper African/Latino/West Indian skin tones) MAC has a "Paint Pot" in a color called "Soft Ochre" that acts as a color-correcting primer. For a lighter complexion, the color "Painterly" would work fine.

http://www.maccosmetics.com/product/...Pot/index.tmpl

Finally, for application tips, I always recommend using fingertips for application of cream or liquid makeups, due to our hand-eye coordination and ability to "feel" the color and amount of product on the skin being a fantastic way to blend and get the right placement and amount. However, you might switch to brushes if switching up your products doesn't get you the results you want.

If you're super busy like me and never have time to do anything more than a wash-and-go style, long blunt layers is the way to go. Make sure you don't get a razor cut, since that will exacerbate frizz. Have your stylist use actual scissors and only get 2-3 layers, so that everything has bounce and movement without getting too fussy.

Add a silkening and anti-frizz product like my beloved Chi Silk Infusion, and you should have a great go-to style for everyday that won't take hours to prep!

Any suggestions as to the best liquid eyeliner to buy? Something that goes on smoothly, stays on all day and doesn't flake off or smudge? I have about 7 different eyeliners upstairs, and I am not really happy with any of them.
