Makeup chat!

Hi everyone,


My name is Michelle and I have been a makeup artist for a year and a half now. I mainly do evening and bold, colourful makeup. During support chat a few community members and I decided that a makeup discussion would be a good idea for us makeup lovers to come together and share our favourite products as well as an opportunity for anyone to ask me any makeup related questions :) 


@The Mix  posted this thread last week with all the info about how this will work. In short, post your questions or comments below ready for tomorrow. I’ll be online from 6:30-8:30pm Thursday to answer any questions specifically for me and get involved in the discussion with you guys.


I hope we can all use this space to help eachother and have share our common love of makeup!


Thanks,

Michelle :)

    Hey @Shaunie  

    Some great questions here :) Do ask as many questions as you would like, but perhaps it's worth saying which are your priority questions so that Michelle can get to those first?

    I second the question about what's good to cover bags under your eyes. 

    Also.  Is there any makeup you reccomend for doing like natural looks?  I haven't been able to do it as good I had at my sisters wedding 😂

    Hey all, 

    Loving the enthusiasm and excitement here, and so many questions :) hate to be the barer of bad news, but due to some unforseen circumstances, we are having to postpone this AMA tonight. We will be looking to rearrange this though, so do keep adding questions to this thread. It may just be in the new year that you get your make up tips.

    Chat is on as usual, so hop on over there :)
