I'm really pale and everything I try to use to contour ends up looking orange or muddy. Do you have any suggestions? I really want to try liquid not powder but if I haven't found the right one

Try Sonia Kashuk’s Undetectable Bronzer in Warm Tan (the lightest shade)

I have the darker shade because i’m a medium skin tone and it blends flawlessly! You can blend it out to where its very natural or build it up. Its about $10 at Target. Or you can just use a cream/liquid foundation a few shades darker than your skin tone, I recommend the Maybelline Fit Me foundations sticks because they are easy to apply in the hollows of your cheeks :)

For powders try something like NYX Taupe or Maybelline’s Fit Me Bronzers!

NYX Taupe is a really cool brown/taupe. It’s not super pigmented so it goes on somewhat sheer but you can build it up! It will never look orange or muddy.

The Maybelline Fit Me Bronzers are also very light weight! Not too dark, very natural looking. I’d recommend Light Bronze, the lightest color. 

Lastly, try Too Faced Milk Chocolate bronzer, it’s lighter than the Chocolate shade and great for contouring!

What is the best pore refining mask?

Asked by

I LOVE the Queen Helen’s Mint Julep mask, super cheap at only $3 too! I use it about once or twice a week and it makes your pores a lot smaller and helps with acne and blackheads. I can’t say one bad thing about it!

I get mine at Ulta, Walgreens or online :)

Do you have any posts/tips for treating acne?

I just bought some makeup spounges that are just little triangles. Should I wet them like the beauty blender or just use them as they are? The package didn't say anything.

Asked by

Yes you can totally use them wet like a beauty blender! They are just harder to clean so you cant reuse them. But they will give a similar effect when used wet as the beauty blender. Using dry will give better coverage, using wet will give a more natural finish. Try using them dry or slightly damp under your eyes to blend out concealer!

Using them wet also prevents the sponge from soaking up too much product so you don’t waste any foundation or anything. Just make sure to squeeze out as much water as possible you don’t want it too wet :)
