So come one come all- those who need safe haven for our make up problems/addiction and for those who need make up advice!!! Trust... because make up junkies love talking about make up!!!

also- if you're not picturing it up- you're wrong.

    Does anyone have a morning makeup routine that is quick and easy? I would like to maybe put some makeup on before work, but I literally get out of bed 5 minutes before I have to leave, and ain't nobody got time for that in the morning. What do you all do for a quick makeover?

    Bam sephora cream lip stain 01- always red.

    It's okay. It's a little brighter than I wanted but it's beautiful and soft. It didn't crack all day but it also didn't hold up 100% to the hoagie I had for lunch. It's definitely still wearable with no touch ups but it definitely transferred. It's nice. 14$ well spent.

    Have you found any good contouring palettes for beginners? I have tried some different products and I have a beauty blender but I either end up looking streaky or I blend it out so much that I don't see a difference.

    I have the world's easiest and laziest morning routine. I use a tinted moisturizer for coverage, highlighter on the inside corners of my eyes, and mascara.

    Actually- the face I have on above- is pressed powder with a winged liner and lipstick- I had a dinner date with friends- and I ran home to shower/change after the gym... home by 707- out the door by 721- included shower- clothes- liner and lost keys.

    I'd say either BB cream and a liner or even just a nice pressed powder all over with a liner and lipstick.

    that is less than 5 minutes.

    my 5-10 min face is the one I wore if you saw my FWP mug- it's actual bb cream with all the basics- under 10 minutes to knock that out.

    @Kassy I need that too! I have so much make up, but I really like sleep so I'm not about to get up early to put it on

    @JoRocka my go to red right now is the Cruella lip pencil from Nars! I love it but it does NOT stay. I need to find a good lip stain. Any others you've tried?

    @Elyse

    Morphe sells a decent contour kit for 18.99- I have it and use it. It's okay.

    But REALLY - the best contouring trick I have- are the Maybelline fit me foundation sticks- I use 130 for my dark contour- I used to use the super light one for highlight contour- but I have found using concealer as highighter is more efficient.

    Who else just released one- I think a drug store came out with one-

    but also- I use the Milian baked powdered also- I used one for contouring- and one for my day to day pressed powder- they are a great 10$ dupe for MAC skin finish products.

    Kassy, I throw on some eyeliner, maybe do some spot foundation if I have a bad spot, fill in my brows and call it a day.

    I would use mascara as my one-stop, but I don't have lashes, ha.

    S & P- I'm jjjjuuuust starting to get back onto lip stains- I was ANTI lip stain when it first became a think b/c when that product first hit the market- they peeled- like it was a great idea but the formula was SO rough- it was great- then it peeled- and cracked- and you couldn't fix it.

    So- I'm just starting back in- my go to lipsticks have been the Maybelline Mattes- they are amazing- I wear them WAY to much.

    DNA cosmetics makes a great lip stain.

    Sephora is making me really happy.

    NYX- eh- I have 2- i returned one- and the other I use occasionally- they are soft- but I just don't love them.

    Three others that are rated REALLY highly

    Color Pop Cosmetics (6$/lippie)

    Jeffery Star cosmetics (18$ I believe)

    LA SPLASH cosmetics (10$- they say you can get these in a drug store- but I have yet to find them)

    Miliani- just released lip stains- haven't seen them- no comment- but drug store pricing they are middling

    MAC just released new cream stains- my local counter didn't have them- so I'm going to order on line- or go down to cherry hill and find them.

    How do you hide bags and blemishes?

    Kassy - my makeup routine is probably 3-5 minutes. BB cream is amazing. My quick routine is BB cream, powder (I have super oily skin), blush, a little liner, mascara, and brows. I overplucked when I was younger so I fill them in. That's my everyday look for work - if I'm going out I just add more mascara and eyeshadow. I don't wear lipstick much.

    As an aside, if anyone has any great tricks for eyebrow regrowth, I would love to hear them! I feel like I've tried everything.

    OMG YES to hiding bags! Teach me! Mine are awful.

    Well- the obvious answer is... more sleep and water

    But when that fails (because let's be honest- who has time for that)

    CONCEALER!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    NYX has a good one- like 6-10$ and super thick and creamy.

    the RIMMEL one is really inexpensive and pretty good for low key stuff- good to experiment with.

    Loreal magic light one- to expensive- not thick enough.

    Urban Decay's is amazing.

    Make up forever is coming out with a new one- they released it to their PR list- so we should see it in stores soon- it's excellent.

    Kassy, I use a Murad pore and line minimizing moisturizer, origins eye cream, concealer, powder and sometimes a little eyeliner. I have really long lashes that I had tinted so no mascara needed. I usually put on lip gloss in the car after I drink my coffee...

    So it's starting to sound like I really need some of this BB Cream stuff. What's the best kind?

    This thread is the real MVP. My under eye circles are hereditary so the bags are like ten times worse. I'm going to get some concealer. Should it be a darker or lighter shade than the foundation I use?

    Edited for grammar

    My make-up routine......

    I use an e.l.f cover up, the contouring powder, a little bronzer or blush....a light gold & green eye shadow & mascara.

    HELP!!!

    The problem I am having is, I have red spots under my nose that annoy the living daylights out of me. Never saw a dermatologist so I'm unsure what is is exactly or if it can be treated. I need something better to cover it up. The stuff I am using now is fine for my skin sense it is sensitive and all but, it does not stay on all day covered up. I do have a nervous habit were I rub my nose a little and the makeup eventually just rubs off with it. I know I have to work on not rubbing my nose so much but, does anyone have an makeup advice.

    I was told by the lady who did my eyebrows the other week that castor oil helps with regrowth
