Default MAKEUP- Oh How I love MAKEUP

I just scored the SMASHBOX Lighting Theory Master Class Palette:Contour Strobe Shadow

The box promises I will learn to apply color for
  • Daytime
  • Office Hours
  • Magic Hour
  • Nighttime

After watching the Met Gala and enough Keep up with the K's I am all about some Contouring....

So as a big fatty.. do the contour rules change, my cheeks are round, I am sure there are cheekbones under there but they are lovely and padded.
Any thoughts from other big gals about the latest trends.

Other then of course that your eyebrows should now look like two catterpillers creeping at each other across your forehead.

One more thing - What is the Magic Hour? And if it involves sweating why would you want to put on makeup?

I'm not all that comfortable with contouring yet, so I'm sticking with a powder contouring set that I got from Napoleon Perdis. It's a really good brand, and I love their concealers. As for contouring rules for us with slightly rounder face, I believe Nikkie from Nikkitutorials has some valuable tips when it comes to contouring and highlighting.

As for the magic hour, I think this is like the golden hour for photographers. Basically before sunset. Hope I helped some!

Luckily my face isn't fat like the rest of me so I can contour with a brush like I always did.
I find myself not really contouring the nose or cheek bones like I used to on a daily basis.
If I am going out to a club with friends I do the full make up routine and hair.

I used to do full war paint every day....now not so much. Contouring everyday would be crazy... I would get blending hand or something

Contouring doesn't do much for me, and I'm too lazy to go through the elaborate process that I see on YouTube tutorials. Instead of fighting my face shape, I apply lots of rosy gel-cream blush to play up the natural roundness. Glossier's Cloud Paint is a joy to use.

I have to dress nicely for work (office) so make up is an everyday thing.
Some days if I have meetings or clients I have to deal with I will do the whole routine.

My face isn't that chubby but I like contouring most especially my cheek, jaw line and forehead. I have always been a MAC user. Although, I use blush on in any shade of brown to contour.

Ooh, if you like indie vegan makeup you should check out Fyrinnae! http://fyrinnae.com/ Their eyeshadows and perfume are amazing. I have yet to try the lip products, but most reviews I've read agree that those too are good quality.

Indeed, I find contouring fun after I receive a set of make-up brushes. I start to love wearing make-up ever since. This is fun indeed!

Adore make-up. Contouring is a must, usually just focus on cheekbones, forehead and nose. There’s no point trying to shade the chins. Unless I want to spend an hour blending I usually miss that bit in my daily routine. Benefit hoola is an oldie but goodie. My make up weakness is highlighter. I’m a Mary Lou manizer fanatic. It goes everywhere. Also love a bold lip. I bought a matte blue lip shade last week, not been brave enough to rock it out just yet.

I guess the highlighting just makes me feel like I am shiny! (Which in my day meant you needed to powder). I have all the brushes all the products. I just donít get to the point of using them daily.

Next topic, glitter eyeshadow. I keep thinking it is going to go away, buttttt I keep seeing it on the runway and in the 2019 winter stuff, specially gold.

Yeah there’s a very fine line between dewy and disco ball level of shine. I think you can get away with it if your face is completely matte. Any level of shine in your base will just make you look like you’ve done a half marathon.

Don’t mind a glitter eyeshadow. I bought the urban decay moon dust palette a few months ago. The colours are absolutely stunning. Only ever use it for nights out. Glitter for day wear is a no no IMO.

Stopped by the MAC counter at Macy's last week and OMG such a selection of new stuff to try out.
Got some bronzer,mascara,foundation and primer. $150 but so worth it.

I usually hate foundation and use it sparingly like concealer. Lately, I found a great smudge-proof formula that doesn't leave me feeling like I'm covered in peanut butter - Kat Von D's Lock-It. (Nope, I never thought I'd be wearing foundation made by a tattoo artist.) I put a really tiny dot on my wrist and apply it only where needed, and it stays in place all day.
