    Plus my foundation shade is w9.5. Finding the right shade for darker skin tones is a struggle. I'm trying to look for another foundation, I heard Lancôme and YSL are good. Suggestions please?
    You should try Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra 24 Hours ... it's fab !

    I just wear Body Shop makeup- it's perfect for the price you pay and what it does to your skin etc.

    I use Mac foundation, on a daily basis though it's normally Bobbi Brown BB cream, their eye concealer and Mac/Ilamasqua concealer. I use Maybelline brow gel and pencil and Nars powder. Clinique bronzer, that was given to me so need to use it up. I use a Maxfactor mascara with my Shu Ueumura curler since I've found that works. Don't wear much eye/lip stuff. I mix cheap and expensive, the pricey stuff doesn't always work. As a nurse I can't wear makeup to work anyway.

    Mac foundation, concealer and powder (studio fix), Mac spiked eyebrow pencil, bourjois blusher, bourjois ® volume clubbing mascara, Clinique invisible blend face powder, sleek roll up eyeliner, sleek liquid liner, mac lipsticks/ body shop lip balm. Most of the time I don't bother with most of it though, too much effort

    Hahahaha I really do! It looks great when I'm arsed to slap it on however most of it isn't that good for your skin but I wear zero makeup to school anyway so it's not always. Sometimes I wonder how some people can actually wear makeup every single day without fail :O

    When I'm just out and about I tend to just do my eyebrows with my NYX eyebrow palette and use a bit of moisturiser.

    If I am going out to a big thing I will usually wear;

    Either NYX Stay Matte foundation or Illamasqua Skin Base/Nars Sheer Glow.
    NYX eyebrow palette.
    Sleek contour kit.
    Illamasqua liquid eyeliner.
    Benefit They're Real! mascara.
    Nyx Jumbo eye pencil in Milk.
    Benefit Girl Meets Pearl highlighter or Nyx Liquid Highlighter.

    I don't usually wear foundation unless I'm going out as my skin isn't too bad. I love MAC foundations, especially Face and Body and Studio Fix Fluid, but couldn't live without my MUFE HD Foundation - I'd really recommend it!
    Concealer - Cle De Peau
    Eyeliner - MUFE Aqua Eyes or Bobbi Brown gel liner
    Mascara - Lancôme Hypnose
    Eyeshadow - NARS, I have most of the singles colours

    Foundation: No7 Essentially Natural (which I also use as a concealer if I don't want to cover my whole face/if my skin isn't too bad) in Calico
    Blusher: Benefit - either Posie Tint or Dandelion
    Lips: Either Benefit Posie Tint or Burt's Bees tinted lip balm in Pink Blossom (I also have some brighter Barry M colours which I wear more occasionally)
    Mascara: No7 Lovely Lashes in Brown/Black
    Eyeshadow: Either Benefit, Seventeen or Body Shop usually, but I have a mixture

    I rarely attempt to wear things like eyeliner because it takes me so long to get it right!

    DHC Clarifying Pore Cover Base primer
    Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet+ foundation
    Collection 2000 sheer loose powder (or any other translucent loose powder)
    No7 powder blush
    Urban Decay setting spray
    DHC Moisture Care lipstick
    DHC Liquid Eyeliner EX or Maybelline Master Precise eyeliner

    I also use DHC blotting sheets quite a lot since I have horrendously oily skin, I don't go anywhere without them! I need to learn how to shape and fill in my eyebrows, can anyone recommend any good products for that?

    Well I use various types on different days.
    Foundation - at the moment I'm using L'oreal true match.
    Concealer - I have various but mostly use Collection lasting perfection.
    Powder - Mac MSFN/ Rimmel Stay Matte/ Borjois/ Elf
    Mascara - Change it constantly, atm wearing false lash effect again. LOVE Chanel but too expensive.
    Eyeliner - Collection felt liner/ rimmel kohl
    Bronzer - Mac/ Nyx
    Blusher - I have loads, mostly use illamasqua or elizabeth arden cream blushers.
    Highlighter- Mac/ Bourgois/ Makeup revolution
    Lipsticks/lacquers/crayons etc. - Own way too many to even consider naming all. I have mac, nars, urban decay, clarins, topshop, rimmel, max factor, l'oreal, sleek etc. etc. Basically any brand
    Eyeshadows - Usually stick with Urban Decay Naked, but own a lot more aswell.
    Eyebrows - Anastasia dipbrow pomade/ Makeup revolution brow powder.

    That's all I can think of atm. Obviously I don't wear all this at once, I just love makeup. . 5 days out of 7 I'll just wear foundation, mascara, bronzer and brows.

    Mascara: W7 Eyelust, or W7 Show Stopper
    Eyeliner:
    Pencil-Generic black eyeliner-whichever is cheapest but still decent quality.
    Liquid-W7 Liquid Eyeliner (black)
    Eyebrows: W7 Brow Twister
    Foundation (if I can be bothered): At the moment I use Revlon Age Defying for dry skin shade 04 Nude Beige (usually even ivory is too dark but I went camping and got a very slight tan) but otherwise it's just the cheapest and palest one I can find of decent quality
    Lips: Either some shade of red lipstick (no particular brand) or just some lip balm-Lipmate original atm

    That's my everyday stuff anyway

    Nivea face primer (it's a moisturizer too, win win)
    BB Cream or Revlon's Colour Stay powder foundation
    MUA eye primer
    Maybelline The Eraser Concealer (so good!)
    Collection 2000 Blush (inexpensive yet highly pigmented)
    Stila Bronzer (comes with a nice mirror)
    Rimmel Exaggerate eyeliner (been using this on and off for about 11 years - I'm old - AND obvs not the same one!!)
    Baby lips or a nice rimmel lipstick.

    If I'm heading out somewhere special, I'll curl my lashes and put on Maybelline The Falsies and a bit of eyeshadow, usually from Boots 17.

    I only buy cruelty- free makeup, so my options are a bit more limited.
    Foundation: Bourjois Paris Healthy Mix Serum in 51 (tried the foundation, but my skin is really dry, so we didn't really get on)
    Powder (if I can be bothered): Bourjois Healthy Mix Powder (but I'm looking for a cheaper one, because the powder is pretty mediocre and costs like £8 - any suggestions would be great!)
    Mascara: Natural Collection LashBuild OR WaterGuard mascara depending on whether I need my makeup to be waterproof or not
    Eyeliner: Soap and Glory Supercat, or Barry M Wink for waterproofness
    Lips: Usually Chapstick or Carmex, but if I'm in the mood I might wear some red lipstick (Seventeen, either Toffee Waffle or Date Night) or lip lacquer (Soap and Glory in Aubergine, I think)
    Setting spray (if I didn't use powder): MUA Setting Spray
    Nails (if I have a free evening): Barry M Clear Base+Topcoat, and Barry M Black Nail Polish
