    Would love to see a before/after the run @rheddmobile. If that makeup stays on after a 5k, they'd have customers for life!

    Testing out my Halloween dragon makeup on one side of my face. It has to stay put during a 5k so no foundation. Lipstick is a brown nude matte with eyeshadow patted into it. I took a quick shower to wash all the gunk off my face, used my usual face wash which gets most makeup off, and looked at myself in the mirror and I had a perfectly clean face with green lips! Then I had to go through two different makeup removers before I found one that worked. I was panicked I was going to have permanent green lipstick for a while there, when they say it stays on I guess they mean it!

    Awesome, I love it. Did you use the fishnet technique for the scales?

    @Yoshiboobs Yep! I used a fishnet wig cap. When I do it next time I am going to do it a little differently and use a darker matte color for the base - with both base and highlights being shimmer there isn’t enough contrast.

    Okay, I looked through my IG stories and of all the lipstick i have this was the number one winner according to my followers who voted (mostly my mom- thanks mom). It however, is not my personal favourite. But I do love Bite Beauty lipstick!

    Your lips look perfect. Do you use a lip liner? My lips are always in rough shape, I cannot imagine mine being this smooth 😅

    Thanks! I can confirm this was a good pic, my lips are usually in rough shape (I live in a cold dry climate). I think for this pic I used a sugar scrub and regular lip balm first. No lip liner, I don’t use lip liner but should especially with darker/bolder colours. It’s just pure laziness that I don’t and I don’t own one. BUT I would like to buy those clear ones so I don’t have to get liner for every colour of lipstick.

    there's such a thing as clear lip liner? wow i'm out of the loop - that shows how much i know about makeup :D

    DuWop makes a clear liner that has a touch of plumping to it. This is great for older ladies that are starting to get those little lip lines. They drive me crazy. I also highly recommend their lip plumping gloss "Lip Venom".

    For dry lips (I have them as well), lip balm or Vaseline before bed and apply lip balm immediately after you wash your face. If you have flaky dry skin on your lips, use a tooth brush to exfoliate and then apply lip balm or lip plumper. Some people use sugar scrubs.

    i'm older so i qualify for dry lips. i can't believe how much my former mick jagger lips shrunk! i'm outside a lot all year long so the weather is hard on my skin - esp the lips! thanks for the lip tips :)

    Awwwwww thank you, this was 3 years ago though and I don't have a profile shot or even the hairstyle anymore. Just the topic of short hair came up and...

    So...I got my eyebrows threaded earlier this week. She asked if I wanted them tinted. Of course I did cuz I’m a sucker. But, I’m actually really impressed. I think it’s great to not have to really fill them in. Just a tiny bit on the ends. I’d have liked them a little bit more on the cool side but you can’t really tell in pics I guess.

    I couldn’t find a great pic without my hair partially covering them. 🤷🏻‍♀️

    Oooh I love it! I tint my brows at home. I have to do it monthly or they disappear 😌

    Yours look great! She matched the color well to your hair. I haven't tinted mine since January (I use Sephora's Brow Bar services)

    When you do yours or get them done does it actually shape them? I don’t understand how. Like, I thought it would just make what I have darker but it actually shaped them so well that I don’t have to compensate for the shape or anything. I was surprised.

    And thank you!

    It can have the illusion of shaping them for a few days while the tint is still staining the skin under the brows.. mine still need filling in after that

    And at the Brow Bar, it's a Wax and Tint combo for me so as not to resemble a Neanderthal as I am apt to do in my true form

    @LoveyChar Were your sides like this? I just started growing mine out from this length. I've had a very short pixie for almost 10 years now and I dont know that I'll go back to something longer. yx2fqpqcmulr.jpg

    @MelG7777 disclaimer - I would have commented on the eyebrows but I don’t know what that means ... don’t worry I’ll ban myself from posting in this thread now...

    Old selfie, almost 5 years ago after a graded research presentation in my final semester of college. This was a "thank God it's over" smile of relief. I have not worn lipstick in over 7 months.

    You look so much like the beautiful Jennifer Garner 😍
