  • How do you take care of your makeup brushes?

    I really want to know what type of brushes you have and how do you take care of them and store them? Thanks. I'm just curious by the way. Also, what do you use them for. Also, it would be nice to hear what brand and what type of brushes you recommend or don't recommend with different products.

    I have MAC 187, MAC 188, and Sonia Kashuk Fan Brush 129.

    These are all duo fibre brushes.

    I have MAC 188 for applying liquid foundation. MAC 187 for all my pressed powder stuff and buffing, and the Fan Brush is for sweeping off excess and applying bronzer and blush if I didn't want to use my 187.

    I clean my MAC 188 after every use because of the liquid foundation. I use MAC cleaner.

    I clean my MAC 187 every three days or other day using MAC cleaner.

    I clean my Sonia Kashuk 129 every week when I am washing all my brushes with Baby Shampoo.

    I store my brushes on a shoe tying mechanism where all the brushes are hanging upside down. I put them in the bag I brought them when I am traveling.

    What do you guys do?

  • Fashion Portfolio? Third Garment?

    I hope someone can help me. I just really need a second opinion or more like a 5th opinion.

    So I am applying to a fashion school, and I have to submit 3 garments to show them my construction skills and design skills. It is more construction heavy, I think. So they are going to judge on straight seams and etc.

    So, I have already been to a fashion school for a year. I am submitting a dress with a modified princess seams and modified/curved waistline. It is made with satin and tulle.

    My second garment is a dress shirt with collars, cuffs, buttons, buttonholes, and everything a dress shirt is. It is boxy though. There also a design detailing with special paneling, so it's not boring.

    I am stuck on what I should I do for my third garment. I have decided to do a dress to show that I can construct a skirt and bodice. But I am stuck between a leather dress and a neoprene dress. The leather has no topstitching, but the neoprene has lots of topstitching and princess seams and it seem it would take a lot of work. But the leather dress has a draped sheer skirt.

    As an additional garment, what should I pick? Should I pick a dress with heavy topstitching which I could f-ed/take forever up or should I make a leather dress that has drape detailing. Which one would be the topping on the cake with my other two garments?

    Things to consider:

    I need another design with sleeves which both have.

    I already did a princess seam garment but the leather dress has a centerfront bust dart which is simple.

    Sorry I don't have pictures of the sketches/flats. I am feeling the leather dress more but the neoprene dress might be more impressive, but leather is pretty hard to fit perfectly and I was thinking of adding fur sleeves (short)

  • What should I wear to the Monster Ball Concert?

    My friend and I are going to see Lady Gaga in concert this September 14th.

    I have a lot of ideas running through my head about what to wear.

    I thought about doing black lacing fabric and go for dark Gaga like in Alejandro, or possibly a chained Alejandro inspired mask or the iconic frosted Lady Gaga glasses or blah blah blah.

    I really want to do something original. I can sew and I do a lot of DIY stuff.

    I just need a little creativity and focus on what to wear.

    So what do you have in mind?

  • Redken 23 Forceful Hairspray?

    Does anybody have any experience with this hairspray?

    I am about done with drugstore hairspray (tresemme, garnier, aussie, dove, etc..).

    I am on the look out for really good hairspray.

    I've been through Matrix Vavoom and Loreal Elnett.

  • Best Hairspray.................?

    I am looking for a very good hairspray.

    I've been through:

    Tresemme (too flaky)

    Loreal Elnett (too smelly)

    I am currently using Matrix Vavoom Shape Maker (not enough hold but leaves my hair soft) and Matrix Vavoom Finish Spray (I can't restyle this product at all and it leaves my hair hard),

    I love the effects of Elnett, but not the smell.

    Does anybody have any comments on Aveda Air Control or Redken 23 Forceful?

    Or any other brands I should look at?

  • Black Sneaker Question?

    Dear Yahoo answers reader,

    I need a pair of fly(exceedingly beautiful) black sneakers. I am a dancer and I will need it for a performance. (Dance:Hip-Hop). Oh yeah! I am a guy.

    I need some suggestions on what shoes I should get. I am not a big fan of all black shoes so that is why I don't have a pair.

    I am looking at these:http://cgi.ebay.com/Supra-Skateboard-Shoes-Muska-T...

    These are Supra Black Tuf Gunny. Supposedly skater shoes but I hope they could be use for dance.

    I really like this new black shoe, white sole look so I am looking something towards that direction

    Preferable shoes: Black(not all black), High top or medium top, Can flex(but not like dance shoes or running sneakers), and has to be GREAT quality because I am dancing, so Suede might not do

    Thanks!! Sorry if I sound demanding, just being straightforward.

    Shoe size:10.5

    Width:Wide

    Price Range: Anything below $150

  • Men's Timeless Coat ......?

    I know it is fall.

    I am looking for a new classy coat. I want a coat that is timeless that I can use over years and years. I hope I can keep it in good condition that long. I've been looking at J. Crew and Urban Outfitters. I am interested in Peacoats and Leather Bombers. I don't know if the bomber is timeless enough. And something in black or gray because I believe those are easy to layer on top of things.

    What do you think I should get?

    Price Range: Anything, but not to high like 500s

    Material: I don't want something cotton because I think wool might be better for warmth and longevity. Black or Gray???

    Brand: Anything trusted and with good seams and material

    I was looking at Peacoats. Especially this one: http://www.jcrew.com/AST/Browse/MensBrowse/Men_Sho...

  • Male Hair Issue...........?

    Okay, I haven't got a haircut in about four or five weeks. I usually get it cut short (buzz on the side and some length on the top). Similar to this:

    http://media.photobucket.com/image/short%20hair%20...

    My so what short-medium length hair has been getting on my nerves lately. I don't know what to do with it. I tried putting mousse to stand up, which only splits my hair in half making it look awkward.

    I am using pomade now and hairspray to keep my hair from showing that middle line.

    Any hair suggestions?

    Its just too short and too long for anything. do you know what I mean?
