Also I did sample those foundations you recommended and they either didn't have my shade (I'm like extremely dark right now in this 90+ degree Atlanta weather) and I just had to get more hourglass mineral veil primer, better moisturizers and a 2nd bottle of double wear foundation by Estée Lauder

Thank you soooo much for recommending the Bdellium tools brushes. They seriously changed the way I apply makeup and how my eyeshadow comes out. I feel like they really enhanced my skills. I have this set and I'm yearning for more. Which brushes are your favorite from them?

I'm glad you like them Symone. :) My favorite Bdelliums are 995, 959, 955, 953, 939, 781, 768, 716.

Definitely going on my wish list! Okay, last question (for now) is there ANY way to get rid of those smile lines in foundation?? I know that makeup is still on top of real skin that moves but the lines kill me. I do the most to reduce them but they are still present. I use hourglass veil primer, put my Mac paint pot or eyeshadow primer on that area (which helps), buff in the foundation, setting spray, etc. I feel like no one has them as badly as I do.

Well, I'll be real honest with you. The amount of product that you put on your face certainly does not help. Think about everything that goes on the skin prior to foundation even touching it: Serum(I use a serum as part of my skin prep, not everyone does though. :) ) Moisturizer and primer. The amount of foundation and the type of emulsion it is also can sink into lines no matter what you do. In addition, you have oily skin which makes it even more difficult for the primer. A silicone primer can only support so much weight before it collapses and the foundation starts to settle into lines, it's just a fact. Short of applying liquid latex to the area and going over it with makeup, there's just not much one can do, and I do not support the idea of using liquid latex over smile lines. Whether or not you smile, the muscles in your face move and that fatigues the latex and can create an old age effect, something I'm sure you do not want to do.

I have 3 additional suggestions that can help extend the wear of your makeup in relation to the product sinking.

1. If I were you, I would eliminate unnecessary weight on the skin like the Paint Pots. Those are creams that can be on the heavy side, and even though you have said they help with the lines, you are adding unnecessary product which does not let your primer do its job.

2. After you buff your foundation, go over your face again with good blot paper. I recommend Tatcha's Aburatorigami Blot papers. They can be purchased at Sephora. You'll be surprised by how much product lifts off your skin even after you buff.

3. Use a fixitive spray like Ben Nye's Final Seal. This will adhere the makeup to your skin versus just adding another layer that just coats your face... More weight that you don't need on your skin. :)

Hello Miss Jacqueline, I hope you're enjoying your evening... I am passing by for some product recommendations.
My Bobbi brown colour corrector is almost finished up. I was wondering if you have any recommendations, preferably a palette since my Co workers always like to ask me to do their make up. I was taking a look at Viseart as well but it is pricey and I prefer to buy another eyeshadow palette instead.
Thank you in advanced :)

Hi Jacqueline! I had a quick question for you. I wanted to know your thoughts on royal & langnickel brushes? Have you used them? Thanks, Meg

Hi Meg... :) Which series in the Royal & Langnickel lineup?

Meagan M.

Honestly, I think the brand in general. I got a great opportunity to get some brushes from them. But, I actually never heard of them before. So any review you have I would appreciate very much! :)

Jacqueline H.

Ah, Okay... Well, I have a few different sets of brushes from them, and I have no complaints. My personal favorites are the Revolution brushes. You really won't find a more well constructed brush. I'm not a huge fan of synthetic brushes, but the Revolution brushes are made with Natrafil fibers, and they do an excellent job at mimicking the performance and feel of natural bristle; Titanium-plated ferrules and molded acrylic handles... I love them. I also have brushes from their silk pro line (synthetic) and the Master Pro series. Royal & Langnickel just makes solid professional brushes at a reasonable price.

Thank you. I did find a chanel #16 flat brush for about $20. would you suggest I go for that one instead of the 948 above?

You found a Chanel Le Pinceau Teint #16 foundation brush for $20? I must ask where you found this. I have that brush and it was nowhere near $20 If you found it on Ebay, I seriously seriously doubt it is genuine. It's your money though. :)

There are fake chanel brushes? really? wow.

Jacqueline H.

Yes... It's very very common to see fake MAC, Chanel, and Shu Uemura brushes. You have to know what you are looking at, and if it looks to good to be true it usually is.
