    [–] Pompberry beautifully blends fashion, makeup, and art to create a mind-bending look! giantmaneatingotters 109 points ago in BeautyGuruChatter

    Hate that she lost the NYX awards two years in a row. Shows it's a popularity contest more than actual skill. Her looks always leave me speechless.

    I love it. I used to use Truth Serum (as in every day for years), but DE works better for me...which is honestly a shame because it's so expensive. But man...is it good. For some reason my skin loves products with pumpkin...PTR has a pumpkin enzyme mask that's also amazing for my skin. The DE fit C has pumpkin ferment so idk if its that specific ingredient...but its evened my skintone a noticable amount and my skin is firmer/more luminous. I wish it wasnt that good because its 80 dollars D: But it honestly is

    I love the JM sunscreen. It's still an oil though so if you arent dry I would not recommend. She's thick and it may make you too greasy. When you first apply it it has a white cast, but once absorbed into the skin it completely goes away. Honestly my favorite SPF is the Supergoop setting spray. That stuff is GOLD.

    And I'm a hardcore FAB Ultra Repair Cream stan lol You get so much and the price point is great IMO. It's also great for eczema. If I could be a FAB rep I would be because I love almost everything they make. But the Ultra Repair Cream is my winter months holy grail. And its fragrance free and great for sensitive skin!

    The first I blended out with a Real Techniques sponge but the second one, since I mixed it with moisturizer, I used my fingers 🤷‍♀️ Haha I know that's anticlimactic, but it's true!

    Thank you so much! I shared it on the original post, but I'll share it again here :) My skin type is dry so in the morning I just splash with water then do a moisturizer with an SPF (either Josie Maran or Cerave) and an eye cream (right now I'm using banana bright by Ole Henrikson)...then at night I remove makeup with Garnier Micellar Water and cleanse with Purity. I then use the vitamin C serum by Drunk Elephant followed by Ultra Repair Cream by FAB. I've cut out physical exfoliators and use an AHA chemical peel once a week or so. The Ordinary has a great one that's super cheap and is almost a dupe for the Drunk Elephant Baby Facial.

    Made a post a few days ago where I showed a 15 minute glam before and after! Reddit gave me some AMAZING CC so I did an updated look and think it really helped. I swapped out my frosty gloss for BareMinerals Nude Gloss in "Yaas", blended my brows a bit more, added more blush, and sheared out my foundation by mixing it with some moisturizer. Thanks for the help!

    Products used: FAB Primer, NARS All Day Luminous Foundation, Tarte Concealer, NARS Liquid Orgasm Blush, Ofra Highlight in Rodeo Drive, RCMA Setting Powder, NYX Contour, FixPlus, BareMinerals Gloss is Yaas, Colour Pop Shadow in Frog, Covergirl Brow Pencil in Light Brown, Rollerlash, Some random Ebay eyelashes

    Sorry its not straight on, but I wasnt planning on posting it here when I took it haha Only thought of it after the fact. I switched to BareMinerals Gen Nude in Yaas for a warmer lip and ditched the shimmery lid for something smokey (used Soft Glam)...and even though it's hard to see I swear I'm wearing more blush :) I think it looks way better! Thanks reddit!

    Honestly, biggest game changer for me was waiting until the glue was almost dry. I used to think that meant waiting 15 seconds...but no. For me it works best when its JUST before the point of drying down. It makes them stay on so well when I used to have issues with the corners lifting. I also HATE applying them with tweezers. I feel like I have less control. Unless it's on a client I always, always use my fingers.

    I tried to keep the angle the same but knowing me its prob different lol I do contour it though just veryyyyy lightly

    Complexion Resque by BareMinerals! It's my favorite but def on the dew-ier side.

    Haha thanks! I worked at sephora for years so I got extremely proficient at makeup application. The lashes take me the longest, probably around 4 minutes for both.

    It's the skin rescue one by bareminerals! I forget the shade name but its number 1.5 :)

    Thank you! Atm I'm using Garnier Micellar Water to remove makeup, Purity face wash, Drunk Elephant Vit C serum at night as well as the Ultra Repair Cream by First Aid Beauty :) Then I use an SPF by Josie Marran or Cetaphil during the day. What really helped me was cutting out my physical exfoliator. Now I use an AHA once a week for a chemical exfoliation instead. The ordinary has a nice one.

    Thanks so much! Like I said in the product listing, I got these off Ebay and completely forget what brand they are. However, Ardell whispies and double whispies are my all time holy grail lashes. The Tarte lashes are also excellent, but they're a bit more expensive at 12.00 per set. I find the brand of lash is not as important as the glue! I stan Duo so hard. I also let it set on the lash for a solid minute and a half before applying it to my eye. The glue is almost entirely dried down. It makes such a huge difference in how long the lash stays on throughout the day.

    Thank you! I work reallyyy hard at my skincare routine so that's appreciated. I actually usually wear a tinted moisturizer because I like my freckles to show through, but I'm going out for lunch so I wanted to look a bit more "done up" :) Thanks for the CC!
