Me too. But I'm getting better at it--not nearly as clumpy as it was.

All right! I am in awe of the make up queens. I'm joining in to sit at the feet of the masters and learn... and ask for help.

I made the switch to mineral makeup about 3 years ago, and love it. The glowing reviews for everydayminerals and the cost savings are intriguing, but their website is overwhelming. I have no idea where to start ordering my 3 free sample colors and like the previous poster, then what formula do I get?

I'm using BE's Light, have dark red hair with caramel highlights (so much nicer with my skin than my natural dark brown shot thru with too much gray). Eyes are hazel green with lots of gold. In certain moods DH says they are cat yellow. Skin is fair with yellow undertones and lots of freckles. I burn very easily. I need foundation to cover up the blotchy ruddiness in my cheeks but don't want to hide the freckles too much.


I'lll also give the umpteenth plug for NARS Orgasm blush - very soft color, and as pink as I can go in blush.

I've given up on lipstick anymore, just go for the gloss. Favorite color is Smashbox 35MM.

Must have item to look finished - Smashbox Browtech in Auburn, to make my eyebrows match my hair. Really gives definition to my face too.


You all have convinced my to actually spend $$ on mascara on my next trip to Sephora, now help with the everydayminerals! THANKS!!!!!

The ultimate make-up queen!

OK, I'm off to look at Smashbox Browtech. This sounds like something I'm in desperate need of.

HAVE A BLAST and come back and post what you bought!!!
Personally, I like the matte because my skin tends to be oily and I don't like the shine. That's one reason I much prefer everyday minerals to bare escentials. Also, I don't need much covereage, so I have no need for the Intensive.

As for color - I don't have a lot of advice. I think the only place you can get EM is online, which makes it somewhat difficult. When I ordered mine, I read the descriptions and selected a few colors based on that and got lucky and found a perfect match the first time. Also, as we head into summer my face gets more color even though I religiously use a moisturizer with sunscreen (I tan very easily), so I will order a darker shade and mix to get the perfect match.

Are two-year-olds too young to go to Disney? It depends upon their temperament. One way to find out: take them there. After all, they're only young for a short time. You're sure to enjoy your trip if you plan ahead! AND - don't forget those all-important dining reservations; they fill up so fast it's ridiculous. Have I forgotten anything? Oh yes - I'd advise you to carry a small purse or bag for loose items so you don't lose them on rides. You'll have a great vacation if you follow my advice!

EM -

Their verbal descriptions give a much better idea of colors, rather than the 'swatches' of color.

I like the semi-matte - normally, for every single day. HOWEVER, for 'that time of the month' and when it's a sticky, humid day (or when I'm at WDW in that wretched heat) I mix it with intensive.

I like to mix them...I get the best coverage, without it looking too glossy, or too matte, that way.

Just keep in mind - you can order as many 'sample sets' as you want. That's a nice plus. And their customer service is great - if you need help picking out a color, just email them.

WHERE IS THE GIRL LOOKING FOR THE JESSICA BIEL OSCAR SHOW LIP COLOR???

I just saw her on E - from the show. I would bet my left big toe, that she had on Clinique's Black Honey (or something EXTREMELY similar)



or this:



It's scary in the tube - stunning on the lips.

Makeup Queens! I love it!!!!

Going to get some NARS "O" tomorrow....but I am not taking my credit card into Sephora, lest it come out smoking.

Oh--about dryness: I have very, very, VERY oily/shiny skin, especially when the humidity gets up. There are 2 moisturizers I really like right now that aren't greasy or gross and don't make me shine too much, and both you can get at Target: Olay Complete Defense SPF 30 Facial Moisturizer (it is lightweight and has aloe & green tea in it so it is soothing) and Neutrogena Healthy Skin Intensive Anti-Aging SPF 20 (which actually has made my face somewhat smoother and healthier-looking). I also use the Olay Regenerist night cream in the evening (a very thin layer).
