  • sweethobby_makeup Tatiana

    When you say you’ve used a palette many times, how many times do you mean? You’ve got loads of palettes.
    I used 46 palettes throughout the year everyday and counted the number of times, so the biggest number was 33 times and more that 10 is kinda already a lot

    I know this question isnt related to this particular video but i did just ask this on an old video so you may not have gotten it. As someone with with extremely oily skin i see that you suggest using moisturizer. Well can you use both moisturizer and primer? It seems like that is a greasy mess waiting to happen. LOL

    Girl! Lol sometimes I feel the mainstreams brands just coming out with stuff, we got to make sure this is memorable quality over quantity... people will keep buying if it’s good. But for instance... cherry palette collection... STUNNER, their Christmas collection... ehn waste of time went on discount quickly.
    Love your videos! Thank you 💕

    Hi Nikki!! I work full time 45 min away from home so I’m wearing my makeup for around 10 hours 5 days out of the week.. My skin type also just switched to oily. So I’m looking absolutely horrible by the time I get home and have no idea what to do. I have bad redness around my nose but my concealer melts. Just need a makeup routine for people who work full time please 😩😩😩

  • Kristy Matsen
    Kristy Matsen 6 months ago

    So I was just thinking on the BH cosmetics pallet the two brown colors and the other shimmery color that were in the bigger pants do you think they are done so to use the Browns as a bronze or possibly in the shimmery one is a highlighter? That’s a genius idea

  • Julie Harden
    Julie Harden 6 months ago +1

    Up until about 3 months ago, I only ever used matte eye shadow in warm and neutral tones. I like a plain natural, tanned look. Then I started used more peachy colors, and copper colors, and bronzy colors - to really make my green eyes greener. And that lead to some shimmer colors, even foil colors - not to mention Fenty Beauty highlighter also lead me to branch out. With that background....
    My favorite eye shadow palettes at the moment...
    Two Faced Natural Matte (I wish they made "Strapless" in a single. Love that shade.
    Tarte Clay Play Face Shaping Palette (my signature colors in life - terra cotta, sand, ember, desert, solstice). Love the feel love the smell.
    Tarte Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Palette (I don't use this as much because it's more on the cool side. But, it has some nice transition and brow bone colors)
    Prism Peach Dream (my first foray into non-matte. Baby steps, people. Baby steps).
    Loreal Paridise Enchanted (recently, my goto palette. I never thought I would use every single color (12 total), let alone shimmers and foils - but I adore this palette. Great for green eyes).
    I just got this palette 3 months ago and I can see the plastic on 4 colors already - One of which is a shimmer.
    Maybelline Lemonade Craze. I just got this last week, so I am still experimenting. Really pretty colors, but I'm still not sure how to work in an orangey yellow and hot pink into my everyday wear. But the two foil colors - "Citrus" and "Mainsquueze" are fabulous. They blend really well so they aren't that in your face.
