Urban Decay discontinued the Afterglow cream blush that you recommended to me. It's a HUGE part of my makeup routine. Any other recommendations?

The afterglow cream blushes were nice, but all things come to an end. :-( I have been a big fan of the cheek tints from Benefit Cosmetics for awhile. They give a similar effect with more durability  than the Urabn Decay Afterglow Cream Blush.

Benefit Cheek Tints are:

  • nearly mistake proof
  • easy to blend
  • work well with fingers, sponges, or brushes
  • liquid to powder finish, no need to set ;-)
  • great on “made up” face or alone
  • a little goes a long way, seriously, :-)

The BeneTint and LolliTint shades are pretty universal, but more bold in color payoff. Try PosieTint for a natural day to day look. For warmer and medium complexions, try ChaChaTint

Also try using Benefit’s Highlighting Tints for an extra glow. I recently did a video showcasing my favorite highlighting product, SunBeam, by Benefit Cosmetics.

Do you have any tips for someone that wants to start a skin care routine

If you have no idea were to start I say look for a solid 3 part system to begin with and add products for your specific needs as you go along. 

  • Cleanser-find a cleanser that works for your skin type. Gel and Foam work great for oil, creams are best for dry skin types. Steer away from heavily medicated/ acne cleansers in the beginning. Sometimes the skin breaks out because of misdiagnosing skin type or over cleansing. Simply finding the right cleanser does wonders.
  • Serum/Treatment- Find a serum or target treatment that will focus on a particular skin concern you have. Serums are much more concentrated and can aid in changing skin condition. 
  • Moisturizer- Everyone needs a moisturizer,period. Find one that is oil-free, with an SPF of at least 30, no exceptions. The sun is your biggest enemy when it comes to aging and dealing with issues like hyper pigmentation/acne scarring. 

Start here and add products like eye creams, exfoliating scrubs, masks,etc once you get your skin focused in on a solid 3 part system. 

I love lines like Dermalogica and Kiehl’s for beginners, they take a lot of the guess work out of skincare and the product selection is pretty amazing.

Try this online skin analysis at the Dermalogica website:

You will get product suggestions and some education on your skin too. ;-)

So Femme!!!! I hope I helped.

i love your tumblr. any suggestions for a male looking to appear more androgynous/feminine?

I want to first say , I am big on false lashes, it’s instant femininity . :-) Outside of that, it’s all in the details. Focus on the features that make you FEEL more feminine and soft. Create a space of glamour and power that will accentuate you  in any way you feel, don’t hold back. 

Now, I am sure you want actual beauty tips:

-Wax, don’t shave

-Tucks aren’t worth the hassle

-Pay attention to your eyebrows

-Focus on highlighting and conturing, nice highlighting is sweet and flattering. 

- Take risks with your look

I am not the authority on all things feminine, but I hope I helped. I really love your blog, btw.

Femme Fetch: Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream SPF30 -Dark Spot Correcting

I’m already a huge fan of tinted moisturizers, correcting creams, beauty balms, and any cosmetic aids assisting in fooling the world;Smashbox definitely feeds into this obsession. So let’s get to it.

So Femme-

  • light, buildable coverage great for everyday
  • great as primer under foundation
  • a little goes a long way
  • SPF!!!!! WE LOVE SPF!!!!
  • dark spot correcting.
  • matte/semi-matte finish

So NOT-

  • 5 shades-the blend ability and light formula make the shades work for many, but us dark girls once again don’t get the benefit of this. Would love maybe a warmer,”Deep Dark”  shade not just “Dark”.

Multi-taskers are the future of makeup and I believe Smashbox understands that more than most cosmetic brands. The Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream appears to fade discoloration slightly, but be sure to keep up a good skincare regimen also. Think of this product as an aid, NOT a solution.

I like totally adore you dude your so perfect! I was wondering do you have any tips for a beauty guru directed to teen girls I want to start a channel soon but like how do I attract people?

I built my small (emphasis on small,lol) following by networking with people personally for hours on end on tumblr. It took me awhile to get my first 100 followers in the beginning.

I would follow the person, look through the first 5 pages of their blog, like and reblog what I liked, and then send a message showing some support and love. Most blogs will follow you simply because you took the time to view a piece of their world. Alot of people don’t have support for who they really are in some form and tumblr is a community of people looking to express and connect. Show your followers that you care about what they have to say and appreciate their support and interest.

Build through tumblr, then focus on Twitter and Facebook. After that put your energy into the YouTube Channel. Thats how I did it and am doing it.
