As a photographer I have to say I've seen the best results with MAC. I've actually considered buying some to have in my studio for general use. It's worth the extra bucks.

I shade them in with a dark brown eyebrow shader.. (you can get an NYC shader at ride aid for $3.99) like this one:



you can also try the MAC version:


I HAVE THOSE BOTH.. THEY WORK THE SAME, THEY ARE BOTH GREAT...
The MAC one will prob last you longer and the highlighter color is 10x much better! that's about it.. no biggie!

The NYC one comes with a brush and the MAC one doesn't... MAC brushes are pricey!! very pricey!

SweetSmiley.. is that what you do for a living?

If not, you should consider going professional. You're really good at this stuff.

No. I don't do that for a living.
Like I was talking to MEME about it one day, I would really like to go to school for it. I did reserach on some of the schools that are approved MAC Pro but damn it's a lot of money!! Thanks for encouraging me tho Maybe one day I'll go for it..

dont worry Tears. there's nothing wrong w/having chinita eyes lol. Smiley's right, use a thin line. But make the line a lil thicker on the outer corners. the outers corners of my eyes go down lol so thats what i do.

^^I've tried all kinds of makeup removers and have found Clinique's Take the day off one to work the best. It's about $16 but will last you a couple of months. If you want to try something less expensive, baby oil will do the trick.

Here is MAC's definition:
Pigment is a highly concentrated loose colour powder that contains ingredients to help it adhere to the skin. Pigment comes in an excellent range of colours. Use to create a subtle wash of colour or an intense effect. Pigment does not streak or cake, is easy to blend and long-lasting. Please note: Pigments are sold by weight not volume. Containers can appear to be less than full due to settling of the product.

I hardly buy pigments now, they are so pricey. Imember back in the day when they were cheaper.. Now they are 19.50. I love em tho they are so worth it! I use them as eyeshadow, lipgloss, mix some with lotion and use as body shimmer, and here and there for blush. (I'm not a big blush girl tho) You can mix pigment with a lil bit of water and apply to your eyes.. Makes the colors very vibrant. That's why I told MEME that he ever wants to buy MAC he should buy pigments! You can't go wrong!!

They come in lil containers, like this:


I can recommend some of the colors I have if anybody is ever interested in buying any! I have a lot.

OK both are a little different.

For the NYC: The white part is used to put on your eyebrown b5 you apply the darker shade. However, it is not necessary. The dark shade by itself works nice on it's own. The lil brush it comes with is is good too..

For the MAC: The dark shade is for the eyebrows of course and the other one is used as a highlighter for the eyebrow bone (under the eyebrow) It gives your eyebrow bone a very nice nice glow!!

The MAC one is a lil bit better because of the highlighter. The NYC one comes with a brush.. But the dark shade on both of those work the same.

Shorty.. I agree! I also think that Clinique and Cover GIrl mascaras are the best.. Better than MAC's.. Oh and that Clinique 3 step skin care is the BOMBA!

Cool. i warm my curler w/a lighter lol. The blowdryer is a better idea cause sometimes it can get too hot w/a lighter lol. Thanks for the tip.

Ooh those pigments sound really intersting. Are they all sparkley like that?

As for makeup removers my favorite ones are the ones from Avon and L'Oreal . The one from Avon is my #1 but nobody sells it out here . Like Tears i tested many out and a lot of my eyelashes came out. I miss my eyelashes!!!!

Kinda off topic but have you guys seen they came out w/ eyelash implants? lol. It looked crazy. Forget breast implants, I want eyelash implants! lol
