    Default the makeup combo that works best for you

    what is it?

    I'm going to do an experiment this week--wearing a noticeably different makeup look every shift, and seeing which look fits me best and gets the best response. (Using drugstore makeup, so as not to waste too much money on things that might look awful and never get used again I can always buy the good stuff in a similar shade if I end up liking something.)

    Anyway...I'm curious. What's your favorite makeup "look" at work? Goth? Glamour puss? Or a "less is more" style?

    Which products do you use and which ones do you look better without? This might sound strange, but I never, ever wear mascara. It seems like such an essential, but for me it just doesn't do anything. My eyes look exactly the same as they did before I put it on, and it itches. But I would never be caught dead in the club without a ton of black liner (except for a few days this week when I'm purposely mixing it up )

    I want ideas!

    i usually go with very dark eyes and neutral glossy lips. light powder and a little bronzer. i Hate foundation with a passion. i usually use black and gray for the eyes, but sometimes i'll use a bit of color.

    if i wear less dramatic eye makeup i look too young for a lot of guys. i can't wear pigtails either

    As I said in the holy grail post, smokey eyes and nude lips never fails me. Always with lashes. Sometimes I'll do a hot pink lip with it or do a bright color, but I have the smokey eyes down pat, so it's super easy and quick.

    Smokey eyes and glossy lips here, too. I refer to it as "classic porn star".

    Mostly I like the smokey eye look, but I keep it fresh by "smoking" with different colors besides black, like dark brown, navy, plum, etc.

    Also, sometimes I like to use just one really BRIGHT color on my lids, like the candy colored shadows from Urban Decay & MAC. I use this look alot when I am in a rush to get on the floor, yet still want to look like I spent time on my makeup.

    Perfect eyebrows - I'm obsessed with eyebrows
    Smokey eyes with black, purple or brown/copper
    Bronzer or foundation with shimmer
    Highlighter
    Fake eyelashes
    Juicy lips (pink,clear)
    blush

    I would say my look is very glamorous and HM.

    I love the "barbie love mac" line.

    Hmm I need to learn the smoky eye look.

    I go with super glossy nude lips always and some color on the eyelid with some glitter over it. My glitter stays in place so I don't worry about it getting on anyone.

    1. put on mascara
    2. line eyelids and inner lid with jet black eyeliner
    3. put falsies as close to my eyelashes as possible. If I mess up no one will notice because the black eyeliner blends it in so well.
    4. Pick a bright colored eyeliner pencil (Urban Decay/MAC/NYX) to make a line over the falsies. Usually I do two lines to make it a little thicker and noticeable. Then go over that with a complementing shade of glitter liner for some sparkle.

    look one:

    black smoky eyes, fake lashes, and red glossy lips.

    look two:

    candy colored shaddows (mac), fake lashes, bronzer, and nude glossy lips.

    pretty much opposites! lol. but they both look great on me

    Whoever does it first should start a "ready for work" thread in picture post
