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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
File: 1619222550991.jpeg (Spoiler Image, 2.09 MB, 2742x548, 438954.jpeg)
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.

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.

Try the 4 season thingy before you try the 12 season if you don't want to be overwhelmed. To be honest I'm not sure how necessary going from 4 to 12 even is. I know my type out of the 12 but just the basic season out of the 4 pallette stands largely true. Finding out what your season is, is pretty easy.

I wasn't really sure where to post this, but this thread seemed to be the most fitting.
I just bought this set today, after reading the feedback on the product and doing my own research/what to avoid/tips etc.
I'll let you know how it goes when it arrives/I tried it.
I have long but straight lashes with very light coloured tips, so maybe I'll dye them black after lifting.
I bought some bleach for my eyebrows, but didn’t go through with it after reading “horror stories” online about the regrowth being super patchy and looking unnatural because the dark hairs don’t return at the same time.
Has this been your experience, nonnie
? Do you still recommend?
You can get clear mascara, it's underrated! I have a tube of drugstore "brow and eyelash gel" which is just clear mascara, most makeup stores should have something like it.
Also if you like an understated look you can try using a separate mascara brush to just apply a little product with instead of using the brush that lives inside of the tube. Ignore anyone that tells you too use brown mascara as most brown just like black anyway.
So I bought the Glossier cloud paint in Beam and it lasts like only a few hours on the skin, which is annoying at a middle price point. Do the more pigmented versions last longer? Am curious about Spark now but I also don't want to waste my money. I tried a sample of Storm and it looked way too brown and muddy on me, and I don't think it lasted much longer. Starting to think Glossier is just the Emperor's New Clothes of makeup>>185874
I use essence no more panda eyes, it's a tubing mascara that's removable with water. I think Maybelline snapscara is similar.
I like it because I have combo skin
with some texture weirdness and every foundation and bb cream I've tried exaggerated those issues. The tint is just enough to even out redness without flaking or looking oily in my problem areas, so basically it ends up looking just like my skin but better. I also prefer a really natural effortless look with just a bit of emphasis on my eyes but I wouldn't recommend it if you like to look more dolled up. Pretty retarded that they demo it on models with perfect skin since you can't see it doing anything.

Mac lip glass are great but kinda hard to work with, some shades tend to apply streaky. I’d recommend buxom lip glosses, smell amazing and has that “firm” texture
Yes, I used it already!
It went really well for a first try, if you look really close it's not completely symmetrical, but ya kno, my lashes/eyes aren't either shrugsYou have to clean your lashes and lid beforehand, then use the included cleanser, try to not get the silicone pads oily (with your hands etc) before using the lash glue to fix it to the lid and fixing the lashed onto the pad.*
*Wait a bit before fixing the lashes, so the lash glue is half-dry, it'll stick better.*
*I did a little try-out with my right eye to get a feel for how to stick the lashes onto the pad, I highly recommend you do that, too.*
*The plastic-wrap on the eye during perming/fixing was a bit annoying, I actually pressed my fingers on it during doing it on the left/second eye so it got warm and more "dramatical" then my right eye/lashes - but it's nothing anyone notices.*
tl;dr: I'm very happy with my lashes, I dyed them, too. I look so much more put together when I'm not wearing makeup and when I do, my eyes look HUGE.

the two faced power plumping lip gloss is the best imo. it gives you a nice plump and is not sticky. plus, the colours are gorgeous. they leave a nice stain afterwards too.

How the hell do I figure out where to stop plucking my monobrow? If I don't do anything to my eyebrows they'll happily go full cro-magnon, but if I try to line them up with my nostrils like so many brow shaping guides recommend then that spaces them way too far apart. Plus, I've noticed women with "strong" faces like Eva Mendez, Jessica Alba, Liv Tyler, etc seem to get their brows done so that they come in closer to the nose bridge, which should work for my caveman-tier mug but I just can't seem to get it right.
Pic related is the type of advice I see most often, but I've also seen a few guides recommend taking them to the edge of the nose-hole/nostril that might work better? idfk anons, I feel like a baboon with a pair of tweezers sometimes
I fill/draw mine in and pluck around that for the most part. I over plucked in high school because I had huge bushy brows and that was a big no in the ‘00s, so I have some sparseness. But anything that grows outside of that area I pluck.
I don’t know if you draw in at all but maybe buying a brow pencil and making your own template on your face could help.

I find that lining up the start of your eyebrow with the inside of your nostril is a lot more flattering on most faces. Same for the arch, inside of your nostril, through your pupil.
oh damn making a template is a great idea, since I'm still trying to figure out what eyebrow shape even works for my face>>189145
tbh I kind of like them too, but only on people with much darker brows than mine
with my lightass slav brows it just looks ungroomed unfortunately>>189156

Do any of you care about this kind of stuff? What do you do? Just accept you might be giving yourself cancer?
I wear little makeup to begin with, use cake mascara and mostly natural organic products. I do use lots of skincare though.
However, if you use any L'oréal product and live in the EU you're probably safe on this front, which they mention in the article.
FFS that's not what I said at all? Obviously there's cosmetics out there that are natural and also bad for you. But I live in the EU, and organic makeup with the green leaf label has to pass stringent criteria that conventional brands don't, plus I'm not an idiot and look up ingredients before I buy anything regardless.
Kindly go back to reddit with your kneejerk reactions.
I'm in Sweden and been part of a campaign to mail companies to stop using PFAS in their products. It's been very succesful with the following brands promising to stop using it: https://www.surfejs.se/nyheter/listan-de-57-sminkmarken-som-lovat-att-sluta-med-pfas/
I don't know if they are sneaky and use it in other countries though, such things happen.
It's worth mailing them and asking.
Fuck companies who thinks we should put cancerous ingredients all over our faces.
I use several - PuroBIO is my go-to for eyeshadow and mainly what I was talking about, Benecos for eyeliner/lip liner/lip colour, Boho Green for cream concealer and brows, and Hurraw lip balm. I don't know if all of their products are good or safe but the ones I use seem to be okay. I also have some Catrice brow pencils in the back of my drawer which are alright.
Basically I threw out some liquid lipsticks and palettes with synthetic ingredients like polyvinyl-something and nylon-12, they just turned out to also contain PFAS later which I didn't know at first. So for now I'm just avoiding those altogether.

What are you nonnies' favourite black powder eyeshadows? Many of the ones I've tried just aren't pigmented enough and/or have some fucked up bluish cast to them. Right now I'm trying to use up my ancient pot of Maybelline Color Tattoo in their black shade, which looks okay but is a huge pain in the ass to apply because of the tacky texture. It seems like it would work better with a powder eyeshadow layered on top, although ideally I'd want something that could be worn on its own, too.
Also, I know it's probably dated as hell at this point but I'm an absolute sucker for tonal red looks like picrel. Posting as inspo for my fellow vampire LARPers

I don't want my skin to get darker (naturally olive skin color) but I don't leave the house so I still look kinda washed out and sickly. I have a lot of scars and stretch marks I want to even out as well. If I get a self tanner in a shade that's the same color as me, will it work kind of like foundation? Or will it just be a waste of money? Also, does the whole contouring with self tanner thing actually work?

Try flared false lashes, anon. These will still show off your lid and make your eyes look bigger.
But remember, small eyes aren’t ugly— at all. Just make sure you know what flatters your eyelid type. With hooded eyes I notice bringing a lot of attention to the actual lid part under the hood with some bright highlight eyeshadow in contrast with a dark shadow on the crease is great. Or like the other anon said, you can smoke out your whole lid. Eyeliner is not your best friend however, you should do half wings or bat wing eyeliner.

Samefag but smoking it out like this looks amazing on hooded eyes and even monolids.
It can, depends on the quality of the makeup you’re buying and how much you’ve used it.
Other anons can call me gross but I really haven’t had any issues with using my expensive and used eyeshadows, I’m not throwing away $40-$60 eyeshadows until they start growing something, smell bad, or lose pigmentation and quality
Blue eyes look great with browns, bronzes, and golds
Green looks great with reds, purples, and warm browns
But of course all eyes can wear any colors

Anons, this will sound dumb as shit, but I really want to buy the canmake eyelash curler because of how adorable it looks and how much it is recommended by my friend and others. The thing is, I have 3 eyelash curlers already. Should I give into an impulse or put that $10 towards something else?

I’m actually really good at saving money. It’s just very cute and I’ve heard Japanese eyelash curlers work great.
I didn’t get it though, I instead got a new mascara I’ve been wanting to try since I’ve been running out. I got the dolly wink mascara and I’ll try to update on it soon.

I have a few products. The magic foundation is, in my opinion, over hyped and I don't think it blends well or stacks up to other products which I've used. The lipsticks are nice and so is the mascara along with the brightening youth glow.
The palettes really depend on what you're looking for. There's dupes of nearly each of them and its mostly shimmery shades, so I can't justify paying so much for something other brands have had already for less.

I never found a tinted moisturizer I liked. So I’ve been using this combo(I use a facial moisturizer to mix the tanning drops) and a small amount of nars radiant consealer. I like that natural look/dewy finish and this works great. The consealer is buildable. My make up style is pretty minimal. Mascara and I fill my brows so it works for me. If you’re more into glam it might not be your cup of tea.

I have the same problem. While it's not waterproof, I highly recommend the Just for Redheads mascara especially if your hair has a red hue. Colourpop has a decent brown mascara too. If you're feeling desperate, putting eyebrow mascara on your lashes should be fine if it's eye safe. Also, as for fake lashes, Ardell has some brown ones that I personally think look great. You can also always have them tinted too I think!
Unfortunately, I don't know any gray mascaras, but if another anon knows about any please feel free to share :)
i use the longcils boncza cake mascara and it looks super natural, they have it in brown.
it holds a curl really well too.

Did anyone try eyebrow tinting/dying? Is it even worth it if your brows are sparse?
My brows are such a mess but it seems like the only option to make them look nice would be microblading which is expensive as fuck so I'm looking into alternatives. They just don't look as nice as I'd like them with just makeup

can you contour your face if you dont wear foundation? if so would you go with cream or powder contour? also what type of eyebrow gel is best for super dark black and thick eyebrows?
>>199368>can you contour your face if you dont wear foundation
Sure. If you don't have an especially uneven complexion it will still be noticeable and look nice so long as you don't go overboard. The best type of product depends on your skin type. I prefer cream contour since I have drier skin, but if your skin is oily then a powder would likely be better. >what type of eyebrow gel is best for super dark black and thick eyebrows
Pomades are typically the most pigmented so would be suitable for dark brows. I like Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade. It's a popular/common choice but for good reason in my opinion.

You can try using an app like makeup plus to virtually test different red colours as a starting point.
If your skin is truly neutral, then a pick a neutral lipstick that isn't particularly cool or warm. Another way to check your undertone is to see whether you prefer warm brown eyeshadow or taupe eyeshadow.
The type of red depends on your hair colour too - if it's dark then a dark lipstick, if it's blonde or light then go muted/lighter, if it's red or a strong dyed colour then go more saturated/bright.
I had the same problem nonnie
, the mascara smudges because of oil from the eyelids. Waterproof mascaras aren't necessarily better because they're just waterproof, not oil proof. Try tubing type mascara, using a clear brow gel on top or putting powder on your lower lid.
Pat McGrath for eyeshadow and liners

Nars, nyx & fenty go pretty pale. Have you tried using something like picrel?
Thanks and nope, but I think I am going to have to use some sort of white mixer. I have a cool undertone btw, forgot to mention that. Most pale foundations are quite pink ime.>>199666
Uncharitable reading, but thanks for the recs. Imo it is ridiculous for them to pretend to be some sort of pOrcElaIn pRiNceSs (they are cringy like that) when they're fully aware they're darker than 80% of the population. I see black bloggers do it too re much needed dark skin foundations, it's annoying tis all. It's clickbait, that's what I meant. >>199659
It's a regional phenomenon in the UK, my area isn't obsessed with tanning at all, but the orange faces are still fairly prevalent because mainstream stores just don't cater to the average woman's skin tone, it's frustrating. Young British girls in particular tend to have hilariously bad foundation cos all they can afford to buy is the cheapest drug store foundation available. Some girls I went to school with who had skin issues began fake tanning their bodies just to get their face to match and not look ridiculous anymore, I am not joking.

No, it’s best to use a waterproof eyeliner in either form though so it doesn’t bleed or flake into your eyes.>>201675
Depends on the look you’re going for. Makeup is used to enhance your best features and yes there should be balance, but you can’t help the size of your nose and that’s okay. You could contour it if you like but honestly just do the bold lip. Pretty and full lips shouldn’t be turned away from just because you’re self conscious about your nose.
Not sure if you're referring to eye & lip color palettes to match your skintone but if you need to match your foundation shades this is site that recommends different foundations based on a ones you already have (color included) - https://findation.com/
If you wear more obscure brands they may not be in the search engine but if you own 1-2 popular ones you'll get results with similar shades from different brands.
Why would you contour your forehead if it's already small?>>201757
I've always liked Eylure's lashes but I haven't tried the really dramatic ones. At least the more natural ones have really really thin, bendy bands. >>201675
Try a more neutral color. If you don't like your lip shape you can try drawing on a nicer shape by over and/or underlining but be really really subtle about it so it isn't so obvious. I always round out my lips for a more romantic, soft look because I hate how sharp and angular my natural shape is.

You can try to look at korean makeup tutorials for natural eye-shadow looks, they usually involve using a few beige and brown shades (from one tone lighter to two tones darker than your skintone) matte for everyday and sparkly gold or rose natural tones for the evening. If you want to be ridiculouly basic just a wash of your skintone shade all over the lid can be enough. If you have an eye for interesting makeup,you can try doing the same placement you do for heavy looks with a very light hand and natural shades.
Lisa Eldridge is a must watch of course, she is a professional artist that can do extraordinary makeup from natural to very experimental and she works on various models of different ages and skintone, really gives great advice on how to do makeup that will suit your natural features. She IMO really makes all her models look absoluterly gorgeous. This is super colorful but still refined makeup for example :https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MjIoLBG4iKA
I am not so good at foundation but I have friends that swear by her advice for natural skin makeup. Don't know about dewy specifically.
For eyebrows, if they are thick then my best advice would be to lay off the makeup for a while and follow and adapt this grooming routine, you may not even need any eyebrow makeup at all. If you do lightly coloring in any uneven part with an eyebrow pencil that suits you should be enough.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWCV851MnZ8
Use clear eyebrow gel/soap to brush your eyebrows. You could also use a tinted eyebrow mascara if you feel like you need some filling, a very natural one is Boy Brow from Glossier or Essence Make Me Brow. Make sure you groom them well.
For the dewy look you can either purchase a dewy foundation (Glossier or pretty much any korean BB cream/cushion), use a dewy setting spray (I love the nyx one) or apply sunscreen 10-15 minutes before foundation. Sunscreen always made me look dewy, if applied properly. Ditch contour and apply a faded blush, you will look a lot more natural.

Btw I use this one: KISS ME Heroine Make Long and Curl Mascara
I didn't have my mom to teach me since you didn't like make-up, I learned from the internet. Blogs (at the time) and youtube and my own experimentation. I'd be careful with just picking any "beginner makeup tutorial" video from youtube though, most of them will expect you already know what the basic/most common products are and do and a lot of them still cake on like 10 products. Vid I added may be useful for you. It's by a FtM troon sorry about that, but she actually goes through most of the common items with an explanation of what it does. Definitely don't think you need to use all of that though! I've been using make-up for over a decade and I'm down to a really minimalist daily routine of three products (mascara (makes your lashes dark and stand out), blush (to well, make your cheeks blush) and something to fill in my brows.
Here's also a good written resource that explains most common make-up products if you prefer text: https://www.makeupartistessentials.com/an-introduction-to-makeup-types-of-makeup/
I'd say, if you want to buy a make-up product and you have no idea where to start, go get one single product and it should be a mascara. As I said it's a product that enhances your lashes (makes them darker and thicker, some specialize in for example more curling or enhancign the length). It's subtle and hard to mess up. And probably the most basic make-up item there is, no one who wears make-up doesn't wear mascara. Don't get a waterproof one, you'll find it difficult to remove. Try and experiment with it in the comfort of your own home until you're condifent to wear it out and/or move on to another product.
>>203249>i didn't have a mom to teach me this stuff
You overestimate how common/important having someone to 'teach' you makeup is. My mum didn't tell me a thing, I learned through trial and error, emphasis on the error. That means years of wearing disgusting orange dreamy matte mouse in high school, and wasting hundreds just to try foundation that didn't work for my skin at all. Most people don't have the luxury of being proficient at makeup from the start, the difference is you probably have more self awareness than a teenager and can tell when your makeup is the wrong colour or too heavy or whatever. And even if tutorials and guides are overwhelming, at least they're there and you have plenty of resources once you can handle the information overload.
I lost interest in makeup long ago so anons can give you better specific advice about learning but I'm just saying you shouldn't expect to be great at makeup without being shit at it first, most of us went through the same thing.
my mom didn't teach me either, I learned from youtube. Like the other anon said look up some beginner/everyday looks. Don't feel like you need to use every product youtubers use in their videos though, I remember for a while as a teenager I wore foundation and powder every day because all the vloggers told me to, even though I didn't need them at all. Also keep in mind most product recommendations in more recent youtube videos aren't genuine.
What the other anon said about mascara is true however depending on your features I'd recommend you also consider an eyebrow pencil and/or a lip product. I have small eyes but full lips and sparse eyebrows so learning how to do lips and brows made a much bigger difference for me than eye makeup, and I regret not realizing this sooner
no ones mom teaches them how to put on makeup, get a concealer, blush, mascara, a tinted lip balm, a big brush to put blush on your cheeks, a beauty blender to dab concealer under your eyes and blemishes until it melts into your skin(very intuitive) and you'll need a moisturizer as base before you put your makeup on, I use sunscreen. As you feel more comfortable you can move on to eyeshadow, eyeliner, highlighter, setting powder and bronzer since they're harder to execute but it takes like 3 minutes of watching youtube to get a hang of it. You do feel like a clown going out with makeup when you're not used to it but it gets better you have to practice every other day and it becomes automatic at some point and you become really good at it. Foundation is not necessary, I wear full face of makeup without foundation almost every day.

I'm thinking about picking up a black lip color, since much of wardrobe is goth/alternative. My lips are pretty thin, so I'm very self-conscious about bold colors looking strange on me. I normally wear a little bit of NYX butter lipstick in Root Beer Float and spread it around with my finger. I could use some tips on going for a darker, bolder color, and some product recommendations if you have any!

I have small lips as well and dark matte colours make them look even smaller. My favourite formula is Catrice demi matte lipstick, shade 080 reckless love (picrel) works well for my skintone (light with cool undertones). I do the same thing as you, spread it around with my fingers. It stains my lips a bit so the colour doesn't completely wear off. You could try using a clear gloss over matte black lipstick (or black eye pencil lol it works well enough), that might make your lips look a bit more plump. Essence glosses are nice and also really cheap.

Don't go solid black like in your pic related because a solid lipstick colour without will always make your lips appear a little smaller and flatter.
The best thing to do is a subtle gradient. For example, if you want to go black, get a jet black lip liner and a slightly sheer black lipstick. Outline as normal, add in some extra liner in the least plump parts of your lips (corners and sides mostly) with the very dark black and then apply the sheer black all over your lips. The slight difference in colour between the outline and the plumpest part of your lips give the appearance of fullness. A glossy lipstick will also add to the effect.
picrel is the effect with a purple colour

Those are deep-set eyes, not protruding. Protruding eyes, as the name implies, protrude out of the eye socket and brow bone, pic related.

From every result I’ve seen you have protruding eyes.

You have deep set eyes with a prominent lid. Or maybe protruding with a very strong browbone which throws things off. Advice for deep set eyes will help. There's also small amount of tutorials for deep set prominent eyes that'll be useful.

Thank you anons for these suggestions, particularly for Krysten Ritter and Brittany Broski, Brittanys look quite similar to mine. Her style is a bit dramatic but I like it, I'm gonna try all of the suggestions and hope somethin sticks out to me>>203406
Grass is always greener I think, I absolutely love how hooded/deep set eyes look, they look mysterious and so, so pretty to me. >>203408
I definitely like darkening my waterline, it makes my eyes look alot smaller and less round, but I've found that using a lighter color on my inner corner tends to bring attention to how close set my eyes are unfortunately. I tend to do my eyeliner in a pretty standard "cat" wing, not too extremely long and usually pretty thin. I always feel 100x better about my appearance with just concealer, mascara, and eyeliner wings lol. I usually skip waterline eyeliner bc it tends to..migrate to my inner corner and looks gross if you aren't checking it constantly>>203434
That may be the greatest compliment I've received, thank you anon ♥>>203459>>203461>>203466>>203481>>203491
I've been watching youtube videos of people describe deep set eyes vs protruding eyes, and it's still hard for me to determine even after staring at my face and photos of my eyes.
My brow bone definitely sticks out more than my eyes, but I've got a shitload of eyelid space similar to protruding eyes
I think they are deep set but with..prominent features? Like >>203491
said. I think the combination of features is why I struggle with following tutorials for specific eye shapes. I'm gonna search for videos that specifically fall under deep set and prominent
thank you to everyone who replied, it is somehow comforting to know that I am no longer the only person confused about my own eye shape. KEK>>203466
like in this photo, I feel like my eyes look most similar to protruding, but in youtube vids for protruding eyes, they look so much different than mine?
i wish i could just find a makeup artist do my makeup in the most attractive way possible, then i could copy it forever. i would never have to worry about this shit again kek

The sheer incompetence of Sephora annoys me. Are all their staff just thundercunts or even trained in makeup? Like they could’ve just asked anon about her features or what she wants her makeup to do for her like a professional makeup artist would smfh
Eyelid shapes* so you’re still wrong kek I know it’s just you again.>>203572
I agree wholeheartedly. But be careful nonnie
, someone will start sacrificing tooth and nail to stand up for Sephora employees.
Why are you still hung up on this, it’s a makeup thread >>203100
This mascara is good but a bitch to get off. If it’s for all day wear then I’d be too tired to spend all that time taking it off afterwards

any tips on how to do eye makeup on my eye shape? all I know is that i have double eyelids, different from monolids. when i do eyeshadow on my lids it gets weird n oily n bunches up in the crease area (hard to explain). picrel is how i usually do my makeup

sorry anon if this is your eye, please fix your eyebrow in the first place. I don't mean to be nitpicky or mean, eyebrows like yours would make anyone look worse. Let your natural eyebrows grow or watch a tutorial and learn how to make them look a little bit thicker and natural.
The white on your lower lid is too much, use a more natural highlighter there, something less proeminent. Don't wear eyeliner and put a darker shade in your crease. Make your eyelashes thicker at the end of your eye or wear a couple of fake lashes there.
your eyes are so pretty nonny
! you have such a pretty eye shape.
i think you could benefit from sort of extending the area where you apply eyeshadow a bit higher up and also on the outer lower part of your eye. i'm not very well educated on eye shapes so someone correct me if i'm wrong but your eyes look a bit hooded while also having a double eyelid, so i assume that's why you're having issues with eyeshadow getting oily in your crease.
i found a few videos that may help give you some ideas of what i mean particularly about the eyeshadow location.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lvTqX5p9BCkhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZNZP4MndFshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=skZ-nUB_b00
also, i dont think the shape of your eyebrow is bad, but i do think you could benefit from extending your brows and thickening them a bit with a greyish toned eyebrow pen. i prefer eyebrow pens to pencils or pomades because they look more natural. the tolymoly 7 day eyebrow is good: https://tonymoly.us/products/7-days-tattoo-eyebrow
and so is the nyx eyebrow tint (my fav by far)https://www.ulta.com/p/lift-snatch-brow-tint-pen-waterproof-eyebrow-pen-pimprod2021269
they even have a greyish shade which looks really nice and natural and less…over the top/instagramish
Sadly us unlucky fuckers with hooded eyelids have to extend eyeshadow up to our brows if we want it visible, but that tends to look too dramatic for daily use imo
I like to use eyeshadow below my eyes, especially corals, light purple, maybe even red if I'm feeling extra emo. I keep the light eyeshadow only in the corner of my eye, I don't totally extend it like you do but I think that's cute too, even though like other anon said it's outdated (who cares though!).

Your eyelids look like a mix of double eyelids and monolids. Sadly it looks like you don’t have enough of a crease to do regular makeup like for hooded eyes and double eyelids, you should look for makeup that’s geared towards monolids.
to be frank i dont like the way make up artists do my makeup either not that it looks ugly, to me it does because i like manipulating my eyes and face a certain way that makes me feel beautiful, everyone has a different perception of beauty, i guess if you instruct your mua on exactly what you have in mind in detail it is achievable, regardless trust me you can definitely make makeup work for your face its literally the point of makeup, you just have to test what you like on your face biggest mistake of women who just get into makeup is that they try to recreate some super glam instagram look and it turns out gaudy because they lack the skill or they follow a checklist of makeup products instead of studying their face and forming their make up routine around it, blush doesnt suit some people, some people dont need foundation but use it regardless and it looks cakey, dont get disheartened ladies there isnt one person on earth that cant benefit from makeup its painting your face at the end of the day, all about technique and knowing your canvas.>>205347
talk for yourself i'm a stacy
