New makeup thread as >>72061
is being locked at last. Great job throughout the last one, anons! So many posts were informative and helpful.
Feel free to share reviews, videos, infographics, questions, etc as long as they remain on topic about cosmetics.
Are there any new products you've purchased recently? How do you feel about them?

Are the etude house bb/cc creams good? what are the best bb/cc creams out there?
I used their cotton fit and the mineral fit years ago. The mineral fit doesn't do the patchy/cakey shit that cotton fit does, but the lightest shade of it is still too dark for me. Cotton fit gets patchy and transfers and it seemed like using a primer actually worsened that.
Some good brands are Tony Moly, Holika Holika, Mizon, Lioele, and Skin79.

Doubleposting, but there are also some decent Japanese bb creams on the market. Bison Baby Pink BB Cream is super popular, but its only really useful if you don't have acne to cover and are looking for that flushed complexion. Its translucent. Canmake's bb creams are in the same vein; Good for if you already have near perfect, blemish free skin to work with. https://jw-webmagazine.com/japanese-bb-creams/
A Korean brand that I forgot to mention was picrel. I got it in #02 for the shade and while its still a bit too dark, mixing it with shade lightening drops from The Body Shop helped. Its actually pretty heavy feeling on my skin though, so I don't use it often.
Have you looked into bb cushions? I've only tried one by Sulwhasoo.

There's the Venus XL with a lot of variety on pink shades, and there's Venux XL 2 for more "dusky" colours.
It's generally kind of trashy and not good, but their micro eyebrow pencils are god tier. It's a really thin pencil with a really hard formula, so not greasy or too dark. Probably not everybody's taste but I miss them so much, all their stores are closed.
(i can just buy online but my hair colour has changed and idk what colour I am now, I need to physically test it)

File: 1612834857593.jpg (75.45 KB, 660x825, Review BUXOM Power-full Plump …)
does anyone else use lip plumper, or lip products with a plumping element? i like to combine it with like a lip stain or something light under, or gloss it over a lip butter for a natural look. my lips are full but i have a weirdly small mouth and i find that my facial proportions are instantly like ten times better when i get them to be a tiny bit bigger
pic related, i've been using buxom in "big O" and it's the best lip product i've ever had, it plumps/ moisturizes/ has a custom color-changing element that is a really nice peach-pink on me. i'm obsessed, they should hire me for promo at this point

I tried it a while back but eventually stopped since I didn't see quick results. That was probably a mistake on my part, I'll give it another go with something like sugar and honey >>171270
I personally really enjoyed boy brow and definitely want to try cloud paint.

Any advice for similar lightly tinted lip balm products? These aren't discontinued, just not sold at drug stores in my country anymore. Not a fan of the Burt's Bees tinted lip balms because they feel weird and thick.
are these scented? they're so cute..
you could try maybelines babylips! the red cherry one is really nice imo.
Nta but I have been using these for three or four years now and they are BOMB! They're scented, but I've used them on very chapped lips without any irritation. >>171293
Have you tried Nivea, Chapstick brand (they make tints now), Buxom, Clinique, Sunbum, Laneige, or Revlon? They all make tinted balms now.
File: 1613082524496.jpg (117.46 KB, 1200x628, FB.jpg)
let me know how you like it! I only have Big O, i've been meaning to try another shade or maybe one of the stains>>171293>>171304
oooh next time i'm at the pharmacy I'll have to look for these, they remind me of another revlon product I used to use all the time in high school.
another really great one that I love are the revlon colorburst lip butters, I think they must be discontinued because I literally had to hunt them down on random websites to stock up on them over the years. 'candy apple' red and the coral orange one are my fav shades. I also really love glossier cherry balm dot calm, I only bought one tube and it's lasted me years now. also etude house color lip balms, and if you have a sephora where you live they have a similar slightly colored/ scented balm line, I have pic related in goji berry and it smells SO good. I'm basically just a sucker for light effective coverage that's moisturizing and doesn't take a ton of effort/ won't fuck my entire look up if it fades off like a harsh lipstick or liquid lipstick (i've tried to get into these SO many times and can't bring myself to like them, the only one that was semi okay was OCC cosmetics) the only lipstick I like are the moisturizing ones by Estee Lauder
speaking of, what lip stains do you guys like? I used to use lip markers all the time just for an under layer of color and top it off with a balm or butter, but I kinda want to look into trying a new one

Does anyone know of a good light/medium taupe eyeliner pencil? The one in picrel used to be my favourite until they stopped selling it where I live. I've been using an eyebrow pencil out of desperation but it sucks lmao. There's a fuckton of brown ones but it's so hard to find a nice taupe shade.
I got both blotted lips from Sailor Moon, and for some reason, they just aren't as good quality as the ones from their main collection. I found that the Sailor Moon ones had a weird, patchy application compared to the normal formula. Doozy from their main collection is more red than pink but I find it very similar to the Sailor Moon ones and I like it a lot, it's one of my go-top lip products.
I would skip the Animal Crossing eyeshadow quads. They're not worth the price. They have a warm pink/purple 4-shade palette called Amor for cheaper, but also for 2$ more you can get one of their 9-shade palettes like Lilac You A Lot, which will give you much more utility in my opinion.

Does anyone have tips for covering flaky healing pimples like this? My spots are even redder than this though (not my pic) and it seems like no matter how much concealer or foundation I use they don’t get covered up and it just makes my skin look cakier and flakier

Calling all oily hoes out there, hit me with your best long wearing matte foundation.
File: 1616796659673.png (712.58 KB, 2048x2042, Screenshot_20210326-150639.png)
This is my go-to matte. If I'm feeling baller I get the soft matte complete foundation by NARS. Both last me at least 10 hours before I need to blot it with a beauty blender, blotting sheet or some translucent powder. I find that the Infallible matte does last longer but by hour 15 it's a little…. melted. Especially if you're super oily or it's humid. Oh, and both are very full coverage so be careful with that.

use a foundation adjusting product like picrel. You just mix it with your current foundation to make it darker
Can anyone recommend a vegan cream foundation please?
Oh I have the same issue. It's both skincare and makeup, I can't stand matte foundations because of this.
Have you ever tried using an exfoliator in your skincare routine? It helped me a lot with this.
Have you tried using BB cream instead? There are some moisturizing kinds, works amazing for me, used to have similar issue in the past.
Something that also helped, even with regular foundation, is moisturizing the skin before applying foundation, locking the moisture with a little bit of oil / squalane. Usually that means you'll have to wait like 20minutes before proceeding to applying foundation, but if you have time, may be worth it. Another thing is the way you apply it, I can see a difference in the way my skin behaves with it depending whether I've used sponge or a brush (sponge + gently pressing technique is much better than smearing with a brush)
File: 1617336840972.jpeg (59.62 KB, 512x341, skin tint and stretch conceale…)
Some products aren't compatible with each other, for example using a silicone primer underneath a water-based foundation will cause the products to "pill" (flake off and sit on top of the skin). Oils and oil-based moisturizers can break up foundation in a way that makes it slide around the skin and look patchy, mattifying products tend to have this effect too.
If you're looking for your-skin-but-better coverage I recommend the Skin Perfecting Tint by Glossier, it's my favourite. I know some people think its bogus because it's extremely light coverage but to me it makes a noticeable difference and the texture was incredible. Personally prefer it to any of the BB creams I've tried. They make a concealer and tinted finishing powder too that some people really like.

So late but I'm a big fan of Kiehl's tinted balms! They are extremely flattering, literally every color looks good.>>177621
Do you have Bite Lip Lab in your city? They offer custom lip colors where they mix it for you at the store which can get kinda pricy but they will find a shade that looks perfect.
Anon i'm literally you and I'm above 20. Last year for the first time I decided to buy some eyeshadow because fuck it and now I do single or two color
looks from time to time, whenever I have time and want my eyes to match a fancy outfit. There's no need to overcomplicate things and I haven't looked
at a single mua video, I'm just winging it, using my fingers, one brush and having fun.
how thin are we speaking? typical british thin or 90 year old granny thin?
first use lipstick in a light natural color, smudge it a little so your lipstick softly blends with your skin tone and then use the second lipstick in a darker tone >https://youtu.be/0Wmbq55ryR8?t=265
or use lip liner, but don't overline on the whole length of lips, just on the bow >https://youtu.be/oamvEMp0xf4?t=1161

i want to change my daily makeup and incorporate colored eyeliners like picrel, i was thinking of getting those jumbo liners from nyx but they're not as pigmented as i want them to be so i was thinking of getting water based face paint? what do you think? can i achieve a similar look?

You can do it with eye shadow no problem, just get a good sticky primer and pack on the shadow. You can then make the actual shape by cleaning it up with concealer or makeup remover and a q-tip. There are water activated shadow pigments out there though, pic rel.

Samefag, to further illustrate why I think contour doesn't look good on very light skin. It just looks like a smear, which makes sense because it's dark(er) colour applied to basically white. On darker skintones it looks like it could be actual shadows when applied well.
something purpley-grey, or taupe/greige. absolutely no bronzer

I've had a hard time finding makeup advice for brows like mine. Is there a name for this shape, where the top part grows down and the bottom part grows up and the inner edge of the brow is a narrow point?
Usually I just wear long bangs to cover my eyebrows because looking at them makes me want to kms, I look like a fucking man. Is there any way to shape/fill these to look nice? They're pretty sparse but look thicker where the hair directions meet and overlap. I don't know much about brow makeup, I've tried filling in with dark powder before but I felt like it just added to the caveman vibe. Any advice would be appreciated.
you do not look like a man.
women's eyebrows also often don't look "feminine" without plucking.
i suggest you look up how asian girls draw on their eyebrows, they usually have sparse eyebrows at the ends and end up plucking them entirely. filling them in isn't very flattering for eyebrows like yours.

samefag but while on topic what can i do to soften my eyebrows? they're thick, round and uneven, i also wear bangs to cover them because they make me look so harsh and angry, my face is very round so it doesnt go well together, i look like the angry birds like a teacher was surprised of how much my expression changed when i first got bangs, i was thinking of bleaching them but im afraid it will grow back even more patchy than it is rn how should i thread them to make them look not round and thick? (this is plucked and threaded btw theyre bushier normally)
I feel you anon, my natural brows look very similar to yours. My tried and true method is a combination of trimming and shaving. Trimming the hairs with scissors makes a huge difference and makes my brows look much sleeker, and shaving (mostly I just shave the top part, I hate having those awkward stray hairs at the top) gives them a defined, clean edge and it really helps to shed a lot of the weight so your brows aren't as thick.
Also, another thing that really made a difference for me was changing the tails. I used to be way too afraid that I would fuck my eyebrows up so I only did the bare minimum and never strayed too far from the way my hairs naturally grew in, but when I started experimenting and taking off a small portion of the tails I realized how much better it looked. My natural brow tails would curve pretty far down around my temple because there was just so much hair lol and I felt like it overpowered my face. I don't even remove that many hairs off the tails but I guess it comes down to personal preference on how you want to shape your brows.
thank you anons you made my day>>181148
i never thought of trimming you're right, i'll also try to shorten the tails maybe i can make them appear softer that way

Anyone got some good waterproof eyeliner recommendations for sensitive eyes?
I currently use Glossier's and I love it, it's the only one that doesn't make my eyes sting (EVERYTHING else does except their products), but I hate how it wipes off easily and especially how it gathers at the inner corners of my eyes. I love pic related type eyeliner look but it never stays for longer than an hour or so.
Bonus points if I can use it on my waterline, pencil is a no go, any pencil makes my eyes burn.

i have tremors and its really bad in my hands, so how the shit am i supposed to do eyeliner? its way too punishing for me to be able to anything with it, should i just invest in an eyeliner tatoo? I'm not shooting for super big flawless wings just basic
File: 1620038041495.jpg (43.29 KB, 479x259, 52251.jpg)
hey anon you could always try one of these eyeliner stencils from aliexpress, i've neer tried them but theyre dirt cheap and if it doesnt work you havent lost anything, pic related but its shit and small sorry
Draw on with pencil then go over with eyeliner. Makes it easier to wipe off and you have a guide. I use wet wipes to shape it because I can't draw on wings well at all
Literally just do the best you can then shape it. Mine looks like a total mess at first
Imo, absolutely. But it depends on what you want from it. It's light coverage.
I think their skincare stuff (moisturizer, lip plump which I use for any area I want to appear smoother) is great, and their cloud paint/blush is very easy to put on and pretty. The eyeliner is great too, the highlighters, the vynilic lip things etc. My entire routine is Glossier lol, and they're especially good if you have sensitive skin (everything else feels like shit on my skin).
Buy one thing and see if you like it.
thanks for the tip, I have really sensitive skin actually. I've got a solid skincare routine already but I might get myself some cloud paint, trying to decide between beam and dusk for a soft autumn…
I wish they carried more eye makeup, too bad they discontinued the colored pencils

If it helps, here are the 6 I have on my skin. I'm soft autumn too.
From the top: Dusk, Puff, Dawn, Spark, Storm, Haze
I use Spark the most, it has a lot of color and is warm. Dusk is quite brown, I know some people use it as a contour rather than blush. I don't have beam but it might look better for a blush than dusk.
I follow this girl called Esther Itterly on Instagram, she wears them a lot and can show you how it'll look
And forgot to add, yeah I was looking for the pencils too. It sucks they discontinued them because I really want some colored pencils and only Glossier doesn't irritate my eyes.
Don't try Pixi's Endless Silky Eye Pen or Marc Jacobs pencils if you have sensitive eyes. They're beautiful but hurt like a bitch

anon i'm really not a pro with eyebrows so i invite other anons to correct me but the first step to shaping them is plucking this part i highlighted!
for the rest I'm not 100% sure as I'm struggling to shape my brows properly due to them being weird as hell too
I actually like your brows and they look like they're a really good base. I love these types of brows. Just brush them and fill them in. They'll look great.
Don't use powder lol. What I do is use a bar of soap and a spooly (is that the name?) to brush them a bit, pluck or shave at the ends where it's too curled or slopes too much (which can make your face look bigger at the bottom), and then fill with a pencil and finally a brow pen.
nta but thanks for this swatch. I've been considering getting a cloud paint from glossier. I really like puff and spark, I like the pinkier ones.
>I'm soft autumn too.

I’m sorry about this but the nail thread is dead, what do you call the nail polishes that look semi clear like jelly? Similar to the polish she’s got on here.
