Make Up Is An Art

Kind Reminder!

Let it be known that I am not the beauty dictionary, nor am I the know-all of all things beauty. This blog is not for me to teach or instruct, is to share my passion for makeup with you all. Discussion is welcome, and I acknowledge when I really don’t know something. It’s wonderful to learn from you, which is why I keep the discussion format open on this blog.

I am thankful for all your help, you are smart, beautiful beings and the fact that you don’t make me feel stupid when I mess up helps a lot :)

We are all here to learn—sometimes I think I learn more from you than you do from me lol—and the blog wouldn’t be what it is today if it wasn’t because of our desire to continue learning.

Clinique stay matte is talc-based…most mattifying products are since that is what makes them matte..not the best for everyone but good for those wanting to achieve that look and to obsorb excess oils.

I don’t tend to look into product information unless completely necessary (since I don’t suffer from any allergies or anything), but it’s interesting to know. My skin hasn’t reacted badly to both of those powders, which is why I continue to use them :)

I want my beautiful liquid liner to STAY. What should I use? Brand? A sealing product?

Stila has the BEST eyeliner hands down! Also Kat Von D makes a pretty kickass one, although the formula runs on the watery side for me. On a budget: Essence cream liner if you like it, it stays on all day :)

I threw away all my makeup products with talc and my skin stopped breaking out and looking cakey. I wish more people knew about how bad talc is! Every powder on drugstore lines have talc. How does your skin react to talc?

I wouldn’t know, since I haven’t used drugstore powders since 2009 lol I have been faithful to my Clinique Stay Matte and Too Faced translucent powder :)
