I wear make-up every day, so it's no big deal for me.

Laughing That was sarcasm... I can barely dress myself without looking like I failed the Special Ed course of "Matching Colors".

I honestly don't even know what MAC pigments are.

You two crack me up!! I wanna be a girl too...ha ha, that's brilliant!!

YES - those freakin' boys wear eye makeup much better than I do. I was thinking of asking Brent, Carlton, or Jinxx for an eye makeup lesson next time I see them!
lol!

Here's a little lesson on pigments for you!! (Don't say I never gave you anything!!)

I use MAC, but I'm not very "girlie". Don't know if anyone would want make-up tips from me.

Crusader....you just need Garranimals for big kids. jocolor Just kidding.

Seriously though...Mothers Day I was at the mall and went to Macy's for shoes. I had to go in through the make-up counters. It's the first time I actually noticed the MAC counter. There three young adults that were "working" were really just standing around and I saw that there were stations set up at each corner of the counter with a chair and a table that I figured were to do people's make up. I didn't have the guts to ask for a makeover and besides had no where to go that night looking gorgeous but I did contact a friend who works for MAC. She said that at most department stores with a MAC counter they do makeovers by appointment but if it's quiet they will take walk-ups. She said that at Nordstroms (at least here in New England) there is no charge or minimum purchase but they do expect that you'll buy something. At Macy's there is a minimum purchase requirement of $50.

Believe me, I really need lessons myself.

Oh if you have never had them do your makeup, DO IT! I had them do mine (and YES, an appointment is best - that way you don't have to wait while they help other customers!) and learned SO MUCH about all my makeup in general!

Of course, I spent way too much, but every day I use at least one of the tricks I learned!!

DO IT, DO IT!!

I always wear eye shadow and mascara.

Haha, not really, haha. I'm a guy and I just don't have it in me.

I have painted my fingernails though... Since Boxing is my sport, and you have to keep your hands in sweaty gloves, it can destroy your fingernails, so I had to paint them so I didn't lose them.

That's about it though, haah. Laughing

That is VERY interesting about painting your nails so you don't lose them - wow. Learn something new every day!!

Jessa - I want to learn dramatic for going out. I don't think it really matters what brand. I usually wear browns and just put it on a bit darker when I go out, but I have dark blues & grays that I would love to learn how to put on for going out - without it looking really tacky!! (Which it would if I tried to do it myself - ha ha!) I tried to just follow the steps I use everyday, but using the dark blues, and it did not turn out good AT ALL!

Okay, so here's my question...Why is it that the guys can do the whole guy-liner thing and then smudge it to hell and look every hotter than when they started? Doesn't seem fair to me! And don't get me started on the fact that they sweat more than a whore in church and their hair stays put. Would someone please ask them what brand of mortar they use?

Back to makeup...I love MAC but it's so expensive! I have been using the HIP line from Loreal. That line is great for a "going out" look.

The one thing that I recommend all women try is fake eyelashes. They are a bit tough the 1st few times you apply them (and you want to wear them around the house before you venture out in them just so you know how your eyes handle them) but they are a cheap and dramatic eye popper! I have used the cheap and more expensive brands and like them all but you want to make sure that you have the good glue! (Learned that one the hard way!!)

I just bought a pair of lashes about a month ago but haven't experimented with them yet. I want to. Can you use mascara on them?

As for guyliner and boys who know how to use a flatiron with the right "product" for perfect hair and eyes???? Accck!! I love them to death cuz they look just plain yummy but it kills me that I can never get my hair or eyeliner to look that good. OK BOYS!!! FESS UP!!! WE WANT YOUR BEAUTY SECRETS!!! NOW!!!

Put all your makeup on THEN the lashes. As soon as you have them on, use a curler or your fingers to squeeze all the lashes together. I usually have to touch up my eyeliner so the base of the lashes blend in.

I had to have someone put my fake lashes on at New Year's - I tried, but I could not put them on straight. I want to learn to do them myself so I can put them on whenever I want. I was thinking of getting the lashes that are actually just little groups of lashes, and you put them on where you want/need them.

Yes, you can use mascara on them if you want, but usually you don't need to.

Kathy - are you going to wear your glasses when you put them on? Mine were so long (and I just bought "regular" ones) that I had to wear my contacts - the lashes kept rubbing against my lenses!!

OMG I soooo know what you mean!! And yet, when it get smudged on us girls we look like junkies or something....WTF?! I haven't tried this stuff myself, cuz I'm not big on hair product, but Johnny told me he uses Joico Spiker gel, and it sure seems to do the trick. He also told me he knows how to apply make-up because his sister is a make-up artists to the stars and she gave him some pointers. I sure wish I had a celebrity make-up artist sister....

Take a picture of Johnny to the MAC counter & tell them you want your makeup to look just like that - ha ha!! Very interesting about his sister!

CHEAP MAKEUP - the "ELF" line has been bought out by...some big company like Neimann Marcus or Macy's, and they have to clear out their inventory because the new company will redesign their packaging. They are selling EVERYTHING for $1!! I've heard good things about this makeup.

I used to have to wear fake eyelashes when I was in shows, I hated them-- I never used mascara on them its not necessary.....the best thing I can recommend is black eyeliner and black mascara and lots of it for "going out" I personally LOVE the Cover Girl- Perfect Point Plus Eyeliner in Black/Onyx. Its self- sharpening and pretty much fool-proof, it makes a relatively thin line but you can make it thicker and more-dramatic if you would like.....also if you extend the eyeliner a bit out on the sides (like the egyptian look)--- it doesnt have to be THAT dramatic, but if you do it just a bit, it will open your eyes up and make them look bigger.....I also try to put a bit of white or shimmer under my brows towards the sides, it reflects the light and gives a cool effect........I have lots of tips and stuff, its just kind of hard to explain some of them......we need to have a slumber party Razz

I hate when I try to do the smoky eye and one eye never comes out like the other...ughh! Never used fake lashes, my lashes are long enough. And my hair...ahhh...it has a mind of its own. I can style it and 5 mins later its flat, even with a half can of hair spray!!
