i need a decent non-expensive mascara that's water washable and easily available in europe, will this cut it? some people complain it's clumpy, and it's 13 eur where I live, so i wouldn't want to toss it after 1 use

Does anyone know what this is? I saw this on an IG reel, it looks like some kind of smoothing/lifting tape or something but it looks a little thicker, and blends into her skin. The narration was in mandarin and the caption in a different language completely and didn’t describe what it is, it’s probably bullshit but I kinda want to try it

I haven't been able to part from my Unearthly Cosmetics All I Ever Wanted palette. It has almost all of my go to duo/trichrome shades. I wear most of the shadows on their own, or I pair them with mattes from ABH Norvina or Beauty Bay Bright Mattes.

I’ve given up on wearing more than 1 eye shadow colour at a time… if I carefully apply multiple colours they all eventually blur into one muddy colour. My eyelids are just too oily and I’m not sure if it’s worth it to buy a primer.

It used to be the Venus Grunge 3 from Lime Crime (I’m a redhead who looks good in pinks) but for the last year I’ve been obsessed with my Beauty Bakerie Puddin’ palette.

Also I wanted to add onto this with saying the Romand Better Than palette in Rosebud Garden is my go to. I love the soft pinks and the gorgeous glitters! Something about it makes me go back to it every time. I also love my new A.Black palette.

Part of it is sometimes better formulas, sturdier packaging, more sustainable material sourcing, better labs, factories that are not located in china, but for most it's just branding. I've had good experiences with brands in all different categories, from the cheapest to luxury. However, mid range usually gives me the best, most consistent results. Plus interesting color combos and packaging that doesn't fall apart after a month. This excludes indie brands, they're really their own category. I'm willing to pay more for indies solely because they bring something entirely new to the market and because I like supporting smaller brands.

I really liked it, the shimmers remind me of my Pat McGrath Motherships blitz shades in terms of quality and you need to use a primer otherwise there can be a lot of fallout (Milky way is the worst of the bunch). I also found the mattes to be very blend friendly with each other without becoming muddy.
I adore how grungy this palette but my main gripe is the brown is much more khaki-poo brown when sheered out. (Pic from r/swatch it for me & most accurate to in person)
Overall 7/10. I reach for it pretty often and I'm happy to pay a bit more for indie/Aus owned & made.

Also there is a change in formula with the new versions of Nocturnal so the shimmers are less flaky

I’m a natural brunette, who has also been blonde and now auburn and I was looking for a good natural palette with browns. I just picked up the Morphe 9T Neutral Territory palette last week and I love it so far. I’m on a budget and it was pretty cheap so I was skeptical, but it’s been great for me. I even got compliments from my Nigel who said my eyeshadow looked hot and he hardly ever notices makeup, kek

ayrt It is really amazing to see how much things have changed. I remember when I got my first drugstore palette and how shitty it was. Barely useable. Just a few years later Makeup Revolution was successfully duping UD and Too Faced. I get indie recs from Reddit and instagram mainly. r/indiemakeupandmore is a good resource. Indiemakeuphotspot on instagram posts new releases and a huge variety of brands. I'm not a huge Etsy user so can't comment on that much. I feel like it turned into another Aliexpres and whatever you order there's a 50% chance it's dropshipped or private labeled.

I have used a watercolor goat hair brushes for the face. Some art brushes are cheaper than makeup fude brushes and perform kinda better than synthetic brushes. Though It comes at a price as no amount of washing would take away the barnyard smell when the brushes would get wet. Though the brushes didn't smell animal like when dry .
The super cheap acrylic paint brushes are great for using water activated liners. The thinner ones are arguably better than some eyeliner brushes. synthetic brushes for eyeshadow and blending are not easily duped by art brushes as art brushes focus more on liquid retention. regarding sable brushes you can get decent art brushes that can be used for makeup. both are pricey regardless of purpose but art brushes tend to have unique shapes so if you have a specific function and the shape matches. Other natural hair brushes can be cheaper on the art supply side but like I said some might smell off so I dont know if there is better regulation for disinfecting makeup brushes.

No. 303547

>>303432
Seconding the poster above me, but also consider that art brushes are meant for liquid/creamy media, not necessarily powder, so they may behave unexpectedly as makeup brushes. If you use a lot of powders, ie eyeshadows, look for small, flat brushes with a domed tip and also fluffy, domed brushes. I've seen watercolour brushes that fit the bill.

Any recommendations for eyeshadow palettes that are similar to Toofaced's Just Peachy mattes eyeshadow palette? I'm really drawn to matte brown, pink, and red eyeshadows so this palette seemed perfect, but it looks like it isn't sold anymore? At least I don't see it on Sephora or Toofaced's website. Also recommendations for good brushes would be helpful too.

i’ve been a massive too faced fan for years but i get more and more disappointed with each new release. they discontinued all the chocolate bar & bon bon palettes for this poorly thrown together uninspired pic related snooze fest and also discontinued the entire peach line when those products were beloved by people with oily skin. same with the heart blushes. now they’re releasing a cheap-looking line that looks like kids’ makeup. so many people have been criticizing tf for discontinuing the product lines i mentioned and for delivering such cheap-looking new lines but it’s like they’re hellbent on giving consumers the opposite of what the majority seems to want. it also feels like there’s no point trying out and getting attached to their products anymore because they’ll discontinue entire lines a year after launch no matter how popular they are and replace them with subpar crap no one asked for.

i’ve loved too faced since i was a teenager and i hate seeing the brand going to shit like this. pardon my autism nonas, i just needed to vent my frustration somewhere.

I get you anon, I miss their old aesthetic too! It was the perfect amount of kitschy and cute without being childish. The OG Chocolate Bar palettes had some of my favorite neutral, caramel browns. They weren't too warm but they weren't cool toned either - proper neutral shadows. Regarding the Peach line, I don't think they anticipated it being so well received tbh, it was probably supposed to be a one off release. But making a foundation limited edition is just stupid. However, I LOVE the new bullet lipsticks. Chocolate Lava and Chocolate Chip are my favorites.

Excuse the mspaint, but all you need to do is draw it straighter. Just change it angle of the liner. Don't make it into a swoopy c shape. With option A start from your lower lid and go straight out following the waterline. Then connect the top and avoid the eye crease. With option B draw a straight line from the edge of the lid crease (play with the angle to get it right for your eye, just keep the line straight), and then connect it. Option B goes over your crease slightly and it creates a straighter shape than A. It's like in your pic, you can see her liner is straight, not swoopy and basically extends right out from the crease.

You should keep the line super thin on the inner corner or avoid lining that far in. Have you tried Essence Liquid Ink liner? It's the only one that doesn't smudge on me, unless I cry. It's cheap so worth a try. I find that it's more prone to flaking off than smudging.

I think any style can work as long as you know how to modify it for your eye shape. It's all about making small adjustments, especially around the outer crease, so you don't literally have a triangle stamped on. I'm shit at explaining things but pic rel is what I'm taking about. Still straight, but the top line is adjusted to fit the eye shape better.

Okay so definitely use eye primer. If you have oily lids, Wet n Wild makes a good one. Apply a tiny tiny dot to your entire lid and crease. Set with a translucent powder, foundation or an eyeshadow in a similar shade to your skin. It looks like Mila only tightlined her upper lid with liner. Watch vid rel on how to do it, but if you find that liner smears on you, after the first step I would get a q-tip and remove the excess liner from the waterline. Just run it along your waterline. You only want to have liner in between your lashes. And make sure you get a waterproof gel liner pencil. Your skin might be dehydrated if it appears both dry and oily, or it could be combo. Or it could be the products like you said. ELF actually makes pretty good concealers (the camo ones), you could give them a shot.

what are some good “no makeup” makeup products? to be more specific: skinlike complexion products and base for sensitive, textured, dehydrated skin (showing the texture is preferable to looking cakey, so a hydrating lower coverage tinted moisturizer for example would be perfect. my skin unfortunately is what it is for now, so i know it won’t look effortlessly clear or smooth regardless), a neutral nude eye palette that isn’t too dusty or powdery with little to no shimmer or glitter (my KVD shade and light palette from high school had a perfect range of nudes, but it becomes thick and powdery on the lids with lots of fallout), some nude pink/dusty rose cream or gel blushes suited to pale-to-medium neutral undertones, natural mascara that’s not too dramatic, maybe an eyebrow product kind of similar to boy brow? some subtle lip tints or tinted chapstick. maybe a hydrating setting spray that’s on the cheaper side and doesn’t become greasy? urban decay setting spray is not my favourite, it feels drying and harsh.
recommendations for any one of these would be super appreciated! not asking anyone to put together a whole list of them for free, lol. SEO has made it tough to find non-shill non-affiliate link product recommendations, but i am also compiling recommendations from reddit too, and investigating.
also, any tips or tricks to making it look a bit cleaner and more natural? i only ask because of very seldom wearing makeup… it’s for a new job. i get super self conscious when makeup is noticeable enough that everyone can immediately tell i’m wearing it. not for pickme reasons, i’m just not very comfortable expressing femininity in an obvious way like that. used to get made fun of the odd time i’d try to wear it, and have kind of a complex about it now. only explaining that because i don’t want it to seem like disdain or an NLOG thing, it’s just adult female autism. any advice or help is much appreciated. thank you

You could check out brands like Glossier or Korean brands. From the drugstore, I know that Catrice recently came out with a low coverage tinted moisturizer. Ilia super serum skin tint is beautiful and worth the price. If you want the exact tones as in your KVD palette, I'm pretty sure Makeup Revolution still makes their dupe kek. I know Rom&nd neutral matte palettes are popular right now. Huda also came out with 2 completely matte 9-pan palette recently, and I really like her formula. The mattes are buildable and lightweight. But the tones are very rosy/warm at least from looking at it online. You could also build your own palette with MAC singles for example. I think Essence supposedly has a boy brow dupe? I usually use L’Oreal Paris Rouge Signature lipsticks as liquid blush, and the finish is perfect. Dewy, sheer and long lasting. For actual lip products, I love love love Essence Sheer Lipsticks. They have a hint of color and are very hydrating. But my absolute favorites is the MAC Glow Play lip balm formula. They are some of the best lip products I ever tried. Super moisturizing with sheer even coverage that makes your lips look fresh and plump.

As for making your makeup look more natural, I'd say just apply less than you think you need. If your lashes are naturally dark you can curl them and skip mascara or apply a very light coat and then brush through with a clean spoolie. Apply your tinted moisturizer with fingers so that it melts into the skin and go over with a damp beauty sponge to make sure there are no marks. If you want to use liner, opt for an angled brush and a dark brown shadow pressed along the lashline. Even if your skin is dry, set your t-zone and undereyes lightly with a translucent powder to keep things from moving during the day. I wouldn't necessarily shy away from shimmer either, oftentimes a satin finish is going to look more natural on the eyes and cheeks than a flat matte.

If you're a beginner I'd stick to the "rules" which is light and mid tone mattes in the crease, darker mattes on the outer part of the lid/crease and shimmers on the lid and in the inner corner. Basically dark colors go towards the outside part of the eye, light color go on the lid and towards your nose. But a simple look can also be a midtone matte blended all over lid/crease/outer v + a shimmer on the lid. Once you get a grip on blending colors together you can do whatever and try a lot of different styles, placements and colors.

With this palette a conventional look would be Holy Cannoli/Toasted In Tuscany/Spaghett About It in the crease, Impastable/When In Rome/Feelin Saucy in the crease but a bit below the first shade to define the crease, Mamma Mia!/Espresso Yourself in the outer v to deepen, and basically any shimmer on the lid and a lighter shimmer in the inner corner. Pic rel is a basic look with some similar shades.

I saw it in Ulta recently. I'm no makeup expert so take what I say with a grain of salt, but the pigments seem pretty mid. The top-right blue (as I thought) is duller when it went on my finger and my hand. It could be nice because then you can build it up, but some people want a strong pigment right away. I tested the lilac purple and it seems to be that way, too. I didn't try any others 'cause I judge pigmentation based on the most colorful shades' formula.

Did you not swatch it beforehand? It just turns from green to the same exact shade of beige on everyone. That's how it works. The whole marketing spiel about reducing redness and how it adjusts to your skin tone is just that - marketing. If you want to reduce redness I would look into skincare first. Something like a mild AHA serum, perhaps mandelic acid or azelaic acid. As far as makeup goes, a green primer or lightweight green color corrector before a medium coverage foundation could work. But it's hard to find a product that is green enough to neutralize redness, while at the same time not leaving you looking like shrek.

No. 315731

>>315729
Samefag as above, you can mix it with a foundation/concealer that is lighter to adjust the shade to better match your skintone. Ironically if it's too orange, you can mix some green or blue concealer into it to counter the warm undertones.

Bought it online which was dumb move in retrospect. It's for covering redness, rather than reducing it.

Thank you for the skincare advice, mandelic acid I've not tried before, and it looks like it may help with my excess sebum. I will try it! Hopefully mixing that cream with a bit of my foundation will work out.

I think about learning about make up from tutorials for trannies. The stuff made by women isn't basic enough for me. I never wore make up in my life, I don't even know what certain products/tools are for and I don't know how they're called, I literally don't know anything. I don't want to wear makeup every day, just for some very special occasions, and I want to do it well and I will upgrade to tutorials made by women with time, but first I need to learn some pure basics. Or maybe you anons have some good sources for a total beginner? Also, how do I know what fits my face and eye shape and my skin tone? I really don't know and I'm scared of spending lots of money and wasting products just for experiments and checking what looks good on me. I'm also allergic and the only time a woman put some make up stuff on my face and eyes for ID photos, my face and eyelids became swollen as fuck, and another time my cousin put some eyeshadow on me I got red rash around my eyes. Those were the only two encounters with anything make up related in my life and it was terrible

Undertones are wild. For reference, I’m olive-skinned. Recently, I got the new KVD serum foundation and it looked so orange on me. Wrong undertone, plus it oxidized. I bought a blue mixer since it was recommended, and was told to only use a small drop since it’s very pigmented. It helped a little but not much, so I used half a pump of the blue with a full pump of the KVD foundation. It looked green on my hand initially, but what the heck it’s actually a perfect match now. Either that KVD foundation was really damn orange, or I’m very green lol.
I’m not sure why it’s so hard for companies to just make an olive shade. For a long time, foundations were either straight up pink or orange. Gradually, yellow (warm tone) foundation has become more common, but green (olive tone) foundation is still missing and yet it’s also a common skin tone. I’ll continue mixing pigments, but it’s such a pain in the butt.

Have you tried the Catrice foundation that comes in a dropper bottle? It's liquidy, medium coverage and a natural matte finish. Doesn't oxidize on me. On the expensive side I really loved MAC Studio Waterweight foundation (it's not dewy, works fine on my oily skin) and Nars All Day Luminous Weightless. CoverFX Powerplay is also similar but I'm not sure if it's available in Europe. Estee Lauder Doublewear Nude is another one I enjoyed (extremely runny, lightweight, matte) but the coverage is medium at best and even that takes layering. Lovely formula though.

It’s official, after using several “drugstore” and “fancy” designer mascara brands, I can honestly say that Maybelline’s Sky High Lash sensational mascara is my absolute favorite. Last year I got a Sephora gift card for my birthday and wanted to try Dior’s Diorshow mascara, and after using it for 6 months my verdict is that it’s…fine, I guess. After it ran out I went back to my previous ol’ faithful Maybelline and it’s genuinely just a better formula in my opinion.

Also Sephora’s store brand liquid liner sucks ass and smears everywhere with the slightest sneeze or watery eye. NYX’s Vivid Matte is superior for me and stays all day, and is a few bucks cheaper.

I want to get into makeup, but I don't know where to start. The amount of products that you can get is honestly really intimidating to me and I've gone to Boots a few times but then been too overwhelmed to actually buy anything. Right now the best I've done is put eyeliner pencil under my eye (I can never get it right to the lashline on my actual eyelid so usually I give up). What products do anons recommend starting with?

Bb cream and cream blush. Check out your skin undertone that’s very important to look actually good with make up. Maybe get a eyeshadow palette with nudes and browns. I do my eyebrows with eyeshadow I like that way more but you can also try a brow pencil. Lip pencil close to your lip color makes a huge difference imo. Lash curler, heat it up with a blow dryer before use obviously not too hot though.

mascara, lipstick, bb cream. maybelline's great lash mascara is a nice first one, it doesn't make the lashes feel too heavy, isn't dramatic and and doesn't clump much. you can also watch youtube tutorials for simple makeup looks and figure out what kind of products you'd like to use from there.

If you’re really young you probably don’t need foundation or even face tint. Some concealer is enough, use a good moisturiser every day. Lips and eyes are the best features to play with imo. Get a good black liquid liner and practice with it. You can try different ways of lining it, like doing wings, or a small flick, thick and thin liner, dramatic or natural, etc, and see which shape suits your eye most. Lip tints and tinted balms are fun to play with and often come in cute packaging. You can try different shades like nudes, pinks, reds and corals and see which ones suit you best. Oh and I recommend wearing mascara daily even if you aren’t wearing other makeup. It just makes you feel more glamorous and feminine and enhances anyones eye color and shape.

People always recommend foundations/bb creams and similar to newcomers but I want you to keep in mind anon that it's absolutely not necessary to wear any face coverage items to complete a look. I struggled with foundations for years before I accepted that I can't deal with it creasing/cakeing up in mere hours and wiping off on everything. I ditched it completely and found way more comfort that way. You can start with mascara, eyeliner and maybe some lip tints or glosses since it can be weird to see yourself in an opaque lipstick for the first time. I find shopping online for makeup the easiest, since noone is there to upsell you and you won't get lost amongst the loaded shelves like you would in a shop. Research price points, concerns (do you have sensitive skin?), and consider reviews before buying.

Go to a store that has testers and try out a bunch of shades on your face, wait for them to oxidize and then pick a shade.
You can also ask for help of a make up store worker to help you with a match if you trust them but they always suggested wrong matches for me so I wouldn't recommend.
You can also ask for testers of shades if they do it there and apply the testers at your home to compare shade matches.

You can look this up online, I live in a third world country which most stores are different compared to euro ones so I unfortunately can't help much. I've heard mac is good for this and you can give them a try, if the sephoras at your country give out testers maybe those are worth a shot? It also depends on your race tbh, I'm Middle Eastern with pale skin but very warm undertones so I found that asian bb creams fit me better tone wise whilst a black woman would probably gravitate towards makeup lines that produce her shade range.

No store has all the colors, but that's the fun of shopping. Just go around and try stuff. Higher end stores (like Sephora/Douglas/Mecca) have better shade ranges and displays. IMO drugstore shade ranges are fine most of the time but they don't have enough nuance (if you're olive or something else 'rare' like super pale/dark), and they skimp on display areas and in-store stock.

I know this is an old post and this method might not work for everyone, but I took a picture of myself with no makeup in natural daylight and then uploaded the pic to a photo editing program (I used krita), then I color-picked from picrel and scribbled various shades all over my face until I found which orb matched my skin best. This really just helps you with your undertone and level of lightness but it was a really good starting point for me.

Its not about the shade being light, it's about oxidation.

i start it by closing both eyes and doing like, the first half of the first eye, then i continue with my eye open. repeat for the other eye until they're both even. then i make "wings" on both of them with my eyes open. they dont have to be even, but they have to be big. then i take a makeup wipe and take the excess off. they end up being small, but even wings. if theres a divot between the wing and the rest of the liner at the corner of my eye, i fill it in. final product looks like this but maybe a bit thicker.

yes this happens to me both with the pencil and the foundation, but it happens to me with all cream products tbh. i think it's just how my skin is, i have deep eye bags and oily skin and my first wrinkles are coming in there. a little bit of setting powder under my eyes fixes it for the day though (and stops my mascara from giving me raccoon eyes). my only complaint about the foundation is that it's quite shiny, so i use setting powder on a few key parts of my face anyway. still like it a lot.

>>322915
If it's truly too dark, mix it with a white concealer/foundation mixer. But as >>322934 said, it might be that the undertone is wrong. Green or blue corrector could save it.
>>322945
Pencil concealers tend to be really creamy and waxy - therefore they move about throughout the day and sink into creases and lines. It's basically impossible to formulate a concealer that is both emollient and crease proof. I just tap my undereyes throughout the day and smooth out any lines.

it's horrible to find a shade that fits. I once heard about how amazing the Catrice foundations are and how their shades are so light and suitable for pale people. So, I went to the store and tried the lightest shade from every foundation series they have and no, everything was to dark/orange/yellow. But the nonna with the information about oxidation is also right. Once I had a foundation from Max Factor, the perfect shade for me, and it turned dark orange and I'm still mad about it, kek.

kek, I remember wearing that in the late 90s, early 2000s, it was fun that everyone around me assumed that the right colour for your eyeshadow would be the colour of your eyes. What I would do to "improve" the look, add a little darker blue to 1/5 of your eyelids on the outer side where the light blue colour is now. It will give the whole look more dynamic and suit your eye shape. Hope you will draw some pupils next time, lol.

I'm a dumbass and need some help lol

I want to start wearing some color on my lips but my job is basically talking for 8 hours on the phone and I have a lip piercing. So I thought I'd try a lip stain or tint. However, does that stuff work the way I think it does or not? Google keeps giving me the same answer to both.


1. the tint can be wiped off normally, like any lip product, it doesn't actually "tint" the lips, like the "stain" is supposed to?


2. Where the actual fuck can I find a stai in Europe because googling so far has brought up almost nothing, they seem to be hard to find. Picrel is the only thing I found but it's all tints

No. 328849

>>328842
Stains and tints are synonymous. Romand stains are really nice because the lipstick is great upon application but the stain/tint that stays behind is also quite nice. Korean brands perfected stains and you won't find similar stuff in Europe, because makeup trends here are different. High end brands sometimes have similar products, but they're not worth the money. Maybe NYX has something similar? That's the only cheap brand I could think of. Bourjois in general has nice, long wearing lip products. Their normal lipsticks (rouge velvet the lipstick) don't budge without being uncomfortable and the liquid lipsticks (rouge edition velvet) last very long and wear off gracefully and evenly.

So, imo, nothing can really last all day (~12h) without reapplying it, but maybe someone has experience with some really good products. I know the ETUDE house water tint on the pic you attached lasts a very good amount of time (from my experience at least 5 hours, but I also prefer only applying a thin layer for all my highly pigmented lip products). I haven’t used lip stains in a fat minute, but from what I remember they do tend to be longer lasting and harder to remove compared to tints. Personally, I go for tints because if you fuck up with application it won’t be as dire. As per where to buy it in Europe, I can’t say for sure, but any Sephora should carry at least some variation of lip stain/tint (I would go for an Asian brand tho, and try ordering from OLIVEYOUNG/stylevana since it’s cheaper and gives more variety)

There are traditional liquid lipsticks that can last for 8 hours for sure, but they're not the most comfortable imo. L'oreal Macaron liquid lipsticks would survive an apocalypse and legit don't move until you want to remove them but it feels like you have a layer of latex over your lips.

Yeah, I kinda hate the feel of lipsticks in general, which is why I only use tints, lol. I was debating on just getting more natural looking tints, cause I’m 90% sure they’ll last longer if I use them as intended, but can’t get myself to order any

No. 329233

mostly the difference between these products and regular lipstick is the buildability. They are meant to create gradients and smudged effects, it gets darker the more product you apply. While regular liquid lipsticks just become more opaque/intense. Currently because the trend is a gradient that goes beyond the natural lip line (basically overlining but better) the formulas are more spreadable than lipstick but they don't dry down and aren't very tough at all, you eat one potato chip and it's gone. The water tints like the Etude House one however date back to before current trends so they actually tint the lips for a little while. Basically, lip tints are the watercolors of lipstick.

Benefit has a water tint but it's more expensive than Etude while not being better.

If you don't care about gradients/transparent effects and want a solid lip that stays put, you're better off with a product like Maybelline Superstay 24h or a good liquid lipstick, I used to like Black Moon a lot.

Are high-end powder blushes worth it? I don't typically wear foundation or any other face makeup, but I'm very fair and I love the pop of color that blush gives my face. My current Colourpop blush is almost out, and I'm just curious if high-end blush really makes much of a difference, or if the drugstore ones will work just fine.

Some formulas can be more blurring and smoothing, last longer or blend easier. Personally I'm ok with drugstore blushes most of the time. I love blush but I never found that more expensive ones gave me mind blowing results so it's not worth it to me. Cream blushes are another topic though.

It is for some brands, I like too faced and I only have 1 that I use every day so its a worthwhile cost to me. Mostly because its pastel pink and I cant find blushes that dont look orange on me. And if they are pink, they're so faint. So I use pictures relayed, cloud crush blush.

Overall though you should avoid the suuuuuper cheap brands since they have no pigmentation and feel so chalky. Not even talking loreal or whatever, but the dollar store stuff. Same with eyeshadow. Yes Natasha denona is pricey but if you are a 1 basic palette girl it's so worth it just for the ease of application and pigmentation.

What do you like about it? The mauve tones? Golds? The warmer neutrals? ABH Soft Glam has similar neutral shades but it doesn't have a blue. Colourpop Doin' The Most is a nice mix of warm and cooler toned neutrals, but again no blue. Lorac Fairytale Forest could be a better match. Sigma Diana Saldana colab also looks similar. Too Faced's Better Than Chocolate is kinda close too. Take a look at Viseart palettes, there isn't a specific one that is a dupe but I think you could find a color story that would work for 60s inspired makeup.

Any recommendation for a powder to use over sunscreen? I finally started wearing sunscreen daily, but I hate the "shiny" look because of it and have to use a powder. At the moment im using picrel, as it was the only one I could find without a disgusting smell and pale enough without being yellow. Maybe someone knows something else, pale, slight pink or neutral undertone, for normal to dry skin and without perfume.

i can't for the life of me get my lipstick to look like this. it doesn't help that the photograph is black and white so its hard to gauge what shade and tone her lipstick is. every time i try it it looks nothing like it and ages the shit out of me instead of giving that beautiful doll effect. i think my lips are just too plump and ugly to be compatible with this look…

What does the rest of your makeup look like? It might be throwing off the lipstick. Also, how are you applying the lipstick? If you have bigger lips than picrel you might have to modify the shape. Her lips don't look especially large and it seems that the lipstick follows and accentuates her natural lip shape, the bottom lip looks like it could be slightly under-drawn. You also could use a darker lipliner to add dimension, I find that that helps me if a color looks off or makes me look weirdly old.

i for sure bigger lips than the photograph, i'm white so they're not huge lol but they're still way bigger than hers. mainly my bottom lip is WAY bigger than my top lip. how would i modify it so it would still keep that shape?

No. 332331

>>332330
Overline your top lip and slightly under-draw your bottom lip. You could also put concealer on your lips first to even everything out. It's hard to explain over text but you shouldn't be following the natural outlines of your lips to a T, if your top lip seems to be slightly "shorter" than you bottom lip (like the corners of your mouth extend slightly past the width of your top lip) then you should be drawing the outline of your top lip STARTING FROM the corners of your mouth, adjust the shape as needed (but in general, the top lip should be slightly wider than the bottom for this look).
For the bottom lip, you begin to outline starting right where the outline for the top lip starts, do not follow the natural curve of your bottom lip (assuming your bottom lip is slightly wide/squarish at the sides) but instead draw a slightly smaller, rounded lip shape. Draw the bottom lip like a slightly underdrawn ")" but slightly straighten the sides of the lips so that the bottom lip is slightly less wide than the top lip.

I'm sorry if I don't make sense or if this is hard to understand, practice that top lip shape and once you've got that down move on the the bottom lip.

No. 332332

Samefag, if your lips are a different shape than your picture, that's totally okay. There were definitely women back then who did the same makeup who had thinner upper lips than they did bottom lips. You can find a way to make this look work but unless you are cool with doing something a bit costumey, don't be afraid to work with your natural lip shape, more or less.

Very pretty nona! I would say maybe you could underline the middle of the bottom lip juuuust a smidge, and maybe slightly straighten out the sides of the top lip, and slightly sharpen the cupid's bow. That's all, but as is I feel like you have emulated the reference picture very nicely.

I think for a 20s makeup look, underlining the bottom a lot on the sides to keep it round and small is more important than exaggerating the cupids bow. although you do want to define the cupids bow, you’re not trying to make it overly tall or overline it if you don’t have to. you need to keep the general shape from curving out on the way up to your Cupids bow and also avoid extending the lipstick all the way to the outer corners of your mouth. Like here for example >>332333 the very top and bottom are good but the lipstick is too visible towards the corners of your mouth. Ignore the corners and start drawing a little bit more inward. Approximate lines poorly drawn in picrel; just a guideline not exact.

Here’s a real life example in a modern color photograph.

Of course they put it all the way to the corners, but not for that specific look nona was trying to achieve.

Lip guru nonna, I'd like your advice too, please!
Mine is coincidentally the opposite problem of Clara-nonnie. I have a very small upper lip if you wanna be mean, I guess you can say it's a turtle lip with a substantially bigger lower lip. My upper lip has a very defined shape and cupid's bow. If I overline, I feel like it looks weird because the three-dimensionality is immediately noticeable IRL. I used to define the shape by keeping the sides narrow but widening the bow/top part of the lips, but I feel like it looks too outdated now. I want to try picrel tutorial but it seems like it doesn't look good because the highest part of my lip projects much more than the picrel. Do you or anyone else have any advice on how to make defined lips more soft and "modern" so to say? My main concern is looking nice IRL. When people overline for social media it looks good in pictures, but not when you see them in the wild.

istg essence is the only drugstore makeup brand that still uses drugstore adjacent prices , maybelline and l'oreal are becoming so expensive like what the hell , atp id rather spend a few bucks more over at sephora for a higher end formula
>>334878
they work but the effect is very temporary , kind of like the swelling you get after eating spicy food or something lol id reccomend against fillers though as they look pretty obvious most of the time + crappy migration making it look like you have duck lips. maybe try lightly overlining instead?

plumping gloss does actually do something, temporarily. there are duds out there of course, but generally if it tingles/stings a little it's a real one. there are basically irritants (see pic) in the gloss that make your lips swell. It's not good for your skin to be inflamed like that repeatedly and I imagine over a long period of time with repeated use it does some damage to your mouth area (I've never seen a study on this though, it's not confirmed to be especially bad but they have given some people rashes from overdoing it or allergic reactions.)
Exfoliating and moisturizing your lips also works to make your lips appear plump. Like the other nona say you could just overline them a little or use makeup tricks rather than get some ugly fillers.

No. 334917

>>334878
Lip fillers always look goofy and obvious. Especially on thin lips, ironically. Embrace your thin lips, one day the trend is going to end. Also it doesnt dissolve but migrate, and getting them dissolved can ruin the natural collagen in your skin and leave you saggy and gaunt if you decide to try to remove it later.

Maybelline is so expensive I my country, it sucks. However someone I know bought a Maybelline satin ink lipstick and after I tried it on, I would pay the price for it. Really feels like nothing on the lips yet gives a strong full coverage colour. I think Maybelline is better quality and for adults unlike Essence which is pretty good quality and more for teens I think.

That beings said I'm in my early twenties and love Essence

This is one of (the hundreds of) makeup products I want to buy because I've decided to not get fillers. Thanks Nonnies. So have any of you girls tried this? Or the clear version? I have this idea that I first apply the clear version and let it plump and then apply this one and so my lips will be doubly plumped. Thoughts??

I'll pair it with my lips being slightly over lined with a lip pencil in a natural colour. Why can't I have plump lips oh my god I hate having to adjust myself to feel pretty

Above all, we should remember that a well-balanced face takes precedence over body image trends. Thin lips may not be what's trendy right now but if plumping them disrupts facial harmony, is it really the best decision? It's hard to go by this mindset when we're constantly bombarded by our image-obsessed media and I'm totally guilty of this, too.

I have this one. I collect these plumping glosses because I really like the feel of them on my lips. It's decent enough, not any worse than a pricy one from a reputable brand. Honestly these glosses don't actually do much. Your lip might get a little swollen, but it's not a big difference and it goes away quickly. Worth a try though, if anything the icy hot feeling is nice.

I used to do my nails myself all the time, biggest help was the Seche Vite top coat. The others just don’t compare in my experience.

I avoid getting the polish on the sides because I don’t even apply polish near there. I used to want to coat the entire nail space with polish, but I found it never looked good or flattering. Instead I paint the shape I would like my nails to be and avoid going all the way to the edges. I can understand if others don’t like this, because it could look like you have overgrown or incomplete nails. But honestly it looks way better in my opinion because you avoid weird clumpy edges, or uneven shapes.

I used to have that issue too and it was so embarrassing bc it would happen at work/in public and I would only realize hours later. I fixed it by doing the following:

Only use waterproof mascara, I highly recommend Essence mascara in the metallic blue tube. Buy a lash curler and a lash comb. Curl your lashes with 5 - 10 presses before applying mascara as this lifts them up for a few hours which prevents the rubbing on your face. When applying your mascara, make sure the wand isn't overly coated in mascara, so rub off excess mascara back into the tube. After applying to each lash, immediately comb through with the lash comb. Use a makeup wipe or a baby wipe (my preference) to clean up any residue/mess/smudging immediately after and wait till your mascara is dry before continuing with the rest of your makeup. Also, don't use a heavy moisturizer on your eyes, because it'll cause any mascara to smudge. Only use a moisturizer that sinks in well. This is the only way I can and will wear mascara and it's been a huge saver to my makeup routine and longevity of my daily eye makeup. I hope this helps you!

Korean/Japanese brands formulate their mascaras with straight lashes in mind so they hold a curl very well and don't smudge. they're a bitch to remove, even with oils or balms, so keep that in mind.

I'm using the Heroine Make tubing mascara and it's great at what it does but, despite being a tubing mascara, it needs 2 rounds with an oil cleanser before it fully washes off.

if you want something more permanent, consider an eyelash perm. look up eyelash techs in your area on insta and see what actual clients look like. they usually tint your lashes and brows during the procedure so you may not even need mascara if you prefer a minimal look for everyday wear. results last about a month and you don't need to take any special precautions after the first 24h.

You're very lucky anon, that eye shape is so pretty. Have you tried winged liner to make your eyes sharper?

No. 338936

If you have tearthroughs like pic rel, conceal them first. Wayne Goss has a good vid on how to cover them, you basically use a minimal amount of concealer just in the hollow line (instead of covering the entire undereye) and blend minimally. To lift the outer corners grab a bronzer or contour and apply in the crease and outer v area, and blend upwards. You want to wing out your shadow towards your temples basically, so that it creates a believable shadow and lifts the socket. Then apply winged liner. Keep it super thin in the inner corner or you can even apply it from the middle of the lid. Make it slightly thicker towards the outer corner and wing it out. If you want a more extreme effect, you can use a brown shadow in the inner corner. This will pull them down and create the illusion of a more upturned eye shape over all. Sorry for writing a novel, vid rel is great too. She also has vids on hooded eyes, winged liner and changing eye shape with mascara.

How do you protect your eyelids and around eye area from the sun on normal days? I've been thinking about using a powder with spf, but the only one I could find is picrel, because there can't be any zinc in it and it has to be pale enough. Still spf 15 is not enough for my taste.

It’s a little pricy, but the Cicapair SPF 30 cream works well for my eyelid area.

How do people get used to wearing makeup daily?? I notice my eyes start to feel heavy after 3-4 hours and it makes me tired or develop a migraine. Skin makeup (foundation, concealer) doesn't bother me too much, but eyeliner, mascara, and falsies do. I love makeup but it just feels so hard to get used to so I'm looking for advice, if I power through will I eventually get used to it? Or are some people just so sensitive they never get used to it?

No. 339895

>>339894
This is probably the first time I’ve heard of someone getting migraines because of makeup. Are you sure you’re not allergic to the makeup you’re wearing? I’m not sure how that would work though.
Or maybe the smell of the chemicals of your makeup makes you get migraines, which I guess would be a possibility.
Plus false eyelashes are honestly better for parties and not daily use, it’s a hassle to me particularly, since my eyes are pretty sensitive too and they get irritated easily.
Maybe your zone of the eyes is just very sensitive, if you have issues with dry eyes and the sorts, you may need to use eyedrops even. So you could probably try focusing more on other parts of your face to experiment with makeup, like flashy lipsticks or the sorts, and keep the eye makeup at a minimum.
You could also try only one of the eye makeup products you use at once, to discard which eye makeup is actually making you feel sick.

you might make it worse if you "power through". I'm very sensitive towards fragrances in general, but having something with a scent on my face just isn't possible for me. Would I still wear it, I wouldn't be able to have a day without headaches. Have a closer look at the ingredients of the products you use and try changing them for something else, with less toxic stuff, as many cosmetic products aren't the healthiest thing on earth. And skip the false eyelashes for some time, maybe they are the reason your eyes feel heavy.

Why is it trendy to contour your actual cheekbones instead of below them? People are doing it so much and I don't get it, why would you want to flatten your cheekbones? Or when people contour their nose but follow their natural shape and it just looks like their natural nose but brown. The woman in the picrel made her nose look so bulbous when it wasn't before, again, why?
And it's so common like why have people in general gotten so terrible at contouring?

If you don't want to do your whole face up, the single thing I would suggest is bronzer just to warm up your cheeks and temples so you appear more "alive".
Do you just have naturally yellow pale tone or is your skin sallow from a nutrition/sleep/substance problem? Might be worth addressing other causes and not just covering with makeup. But the makeup will cover it.

What bronzers are generally worth it for the price? Cream or powder is fine, I just get severe sticker shock when I think of buying a bunch of $35 single-shade bronzers without knowing if I'll like them or not.

Why are you so against liquid makeup anon ? Powder alone doesn't do shit. It doesn't stay put, it doesn't blend, it's not better for your skin either. It's just not supposed to be used by itself. Really you're better off getting some korean bb cream, bit of concealer if you have dull spots and blush in a flattering shade (likely a light apricot/peach tone). If you look sick and just put on some blush, it won't make you look more lively, you'll just look like a sick person but with extra redness.

>>340477
Nta but no, if even the lightest shades of bronzer look bad on you, just buy a regular face powder in a color that works to use instead. The ideal shade depends on your face shape as well as your skin tone - some features look bad if they are too "volumized". It sounds obvious but since contour and bronzer shades are often classified by the skin color they're supposed to look good on, it feels necessary to precise. If you want an example of why you shouldn't shade with blush, just look at zoomers.

>>340233
You have this "hooded-ish" eyelid shape that's a pain in the ass for eyeliner. You probably don't suck at make-up, you just have a crease that goes too far down and "hinders" you. Because this feature already creates volume and shade, I suggest not going too dark when it comes to eyeshadow and instead staying close to your skin tone. Your eye shape itself is already well defined and expressive, so if you just tightline with a pencil it should be good. Eye shape charts all kind of suck.

Does anyone have recomendations or a good tutorial to achieve a wearable version of this? Everything I've found uses a matte longwear product and then places gloss over it. This just seems wrong; when I follow instructions, the gloss just dissolves the other products. It makes sense to me that it would happen but people say they can do this look without re-application and so I assume my product choice is wrong or technique is bad.

The only way you can do this without reapplying is if you go the lip liner and lip gloss only route. There are many ombre lip tutorials, but in the vid related the lady states that she taps in the lip gloss rather than swiping it on.

It could be that you're applying too much product in one layer and/or your blending technique might need adjustment. I get better results when I use a damp makeup sponge to apply base makeup than when I use a brush or my fingers, for example. You might also just need touch-ups during the day, and there's nothing wrong with that.

On another note, how would you adapt really soft, doll-like makeup like >>317120 for an angular face? I can get the eyes down, but my nose, cheeks, jaw, and even chin are all so sharp that it spoils the look.

Posted about this in an /ot/ thread but why am I so bad at figuring out my face shape? Are there any tricks to really figure it out? I've tried tracing my face, read all the guidelines and tutorials and I'm still stumped. I'm stuck between round, heart and square because of the way my jaw is tapered and being unsure whether or not my widest point is my cheekbones or jawline. I just don't feel like I'm sculpted enough for square or rectangular nor demure enough for round, but my jaw and chin feel too wide to be heart, and aren't defined enough for diamond.

It's annoying because I feel like I know how to contour my face enough without being sure of its shape, it just bothers me personally.

As with body types, essences, color palettes, I think you should not stress over putting yourself definetely in a category. Obviously not everyone fits perfectly into one type, color or shape, and I think it's easier to do the reverse thing and to infer your face shape based on what suits you. I think they are more like guidelines to help you find what suits you than absolut answers. If you already know what countouring is flattering, why do you need to know if you're a square or a diamond or whatever ? I also never figured out my face shape but I know from experience that I should contour and put blush on certain spaces to compliment my features. Face shapes are also just the outlines of your face, whereas contouring changes volumes : shadow and light will sunk out or pull forward an area, so you should consider your face as a 3D canvas and not just a shape. They are helpful to start out but not that needed in my opinion.

The picture you linked is a look that seems suitable even for a sharper face, it's not some obnoxious anime eye look from 2012 or ridiculous jirai girl with huge lenses, it doesn't look all that childish and doll-like so I think it's just your opinion and not fact that your features "spoil the look". Maybe if your contouring is too dark and the highlight/blush is misplaced it could give too much volume to your features, so you should experiment with different colors and ways to apply and find the right ones.

It's not possible to turn a sharp and more adult-like (?) face into a uguu kawaii doll but that doesn't mean it's ugly. You will just look more cool/elegant rather than cute. It doesn't look off with larme-kei fashion imo since it's a more muted style compared to others. You especially don't need to have a round face to pull off the style you linked.

>>342652
If it takes only 2 hours to have lines even with primer it's your products that suck. Also, setting powder with a good blurring effect makes a word of difference. I'm not you though, I don't know your skin and your exact routine, so it's hard to pinpoint the exact problem, but likely it's a combination of things and not just one bad product that's the problem.

>>342712
If you know what looks good on you already, why bother with some bullshit chart that works for almost nobody ? "Take your individual features into account, do what's best for each of them, then look at the overall result and adjust each thing until the combination looks harmonious" is the most sound advice when it comes to make-up.

I feel very tempted to buy a duochrome eyeshadow (never had one before), but the market is such a wasteland. Options look like:
Invidual pots/tubes for ~£15 per unit
Palettes with 1-3 duochromes starting at about £30
Mystery makeup on etsy/ebay as low as £2 each (usually looks like it's from aliexpress)
I thought I could grab a cheap single from a drugstore brand but it seems they don't even make them. I'm still shopping around, so hopefully I find something, though I wanted a product I could buy in person so I don't have to pay like 50% more to ship a single eyeshadow.

tinted lipbalm, blush, mascara and eyeliner should be enough. If you don't like eyeliner you can still do something like adding a little inner eye corner highlight. Keep brows groomed but don't fill them in. Personally I think blush placement makes a big difference, you've probably seen Igari and egirl blush placements but I like applying it across the midface, across the nose bridge (not on the nose tip), and the excess left on the brush I apply in between the eyebrows. The blush is really diffused out so it doesn't have a 'sculpted' look.

its so difficult to do anything with hooded eyes, I feel you. I don't do winged eyeliner either. Have you looked into lash lifts/lash perms? I think they open up the eye in a nice way. If it is any consolation it is easier to get away with bold color choices on the eyelids if they are hooded. I have hooded eyes too and wear lots of blue eyeshadow and blue mascara.

anon if you know your shade in the nars foundations does that mean you’ve tried them, specifically the light reflecting foundation? it’s a watery consistency so it doesn’t feel pore clogging but has pretty good coverage and my skin seems to be liking it - i have rosacea and it’s been very calm recently, no flare ups since i’ve started using it daily. i don’t know the specifics but people claim that it’s a skincare/foundation hybrid and i’m really liking it so far it might be worth it to look into reviews to see if people have had any negative reactions?

Some quick tips
>bring your crease and transition shade above your real crease so that it shows when your eyes are open
>do your makeup with your eyes open
>smokey cat liner is easier to execute than graphic
>always use an eyeshadow primer to prevent creasing(can't go wrong with Urban Decay Primer Potion imo)
>get a glitter glue for metallic and sparkly shades, it will prevent them transfering all over your eye
>with liner, less is more on hooded eyes
>most influencers are now on TikTok, search for tutorials and people there

A bit late but if your eyes are really hooded you could also take inspo from monolid makeup tutorials, some techniques they use work well with hooded eyes. One good thing about hooded eyes is that although we don't have much eyelid space, the brow bone area is usually spacious and it's where we will be working on since it's the visible part when the eyes are open. In my opinion blurred out, smokey eyes (not necessarily intense) look the best on hooded eyes. Liner can be done but it's harder and you need good products so it doesn't look like a smudged mess at the end of the day, so don't get fixated on that. Tubing mascara (or atleast waterproof) with a curler is a must and having great lashes will do a lot to open up your eyes.

Does anyone else get dry lips when they wear any kind of lip product for a while? I’ve been wearing a nice Mac gloss lately, love the look and color, but even with my lip balm underneath I swear my lips get so chapped and gross after a few days. It happens with any lip product, tinted lip balm, gloss, anything. Exfoliating and applying lip balm at night doesn’t seem to help, it only goes away if I stop wearing the colored products during the day. I just want to wear cute lip glosses.

I’m so glad I’m not alone kek, I wonder if it’s an allergy or sensitivity?

Does any other ginger/redhead here have opinions/recs on good redhead makeup? I have both the Redhead Revolution ginger lash mascara (auburn and ginger shades) and the How to Be A Redhead “finally have lashes” mascara and tho a few dollars more I prefer the latter. I loved RR’s mascara when I first found it in 2015 bc there was nothing else like it, but when they improved the formula they made the auburn less red and the ginger less orange and I actually liked that part. HtBaRH is a better formula and the color matches my true red really well. I use it as tinted brow gel and mascara as my brows are pretty thick but cursed to be blonde. I get a lot of compliments on the mascara and would highly recommend to any fellow redhead of any shade. RR has some nice lipsticks and glosses tho, shades for different types of gingers. Picrel looks richer in person than in this swatch, I’ll post my eye maybe later if anyone wants to see it IRL kek

I would rec a water tint instead personally, plus they last way longer bc you don’t need a ton and can be used on lips as well. Etude House makes my favorite ones.

I've had this problem for a while now, but it is so weird that it doesn't happen always and sometimes only my other eyelid looks irritated after wearing false lashes.

How often do nonnas here wear makeup?

For me it depends, I seldom wear makeup to work simply because I have to leave the house very early and I hate doing my makeup in a rush. I'm also not really a fan of natural makeup on my self and the looks I usually go for are kinda out there and I have to look toned down and neutral in my work environment. So I usually only wear makeup during weekends.
I'd like to have a full-face more often, but it is what it is. I've also heard that it's good for your skin to not wear makeup every single day.

I have a set everyday look (very sheer SPF 50 CC cream so my freckles stay visible, water tint as blush and lips, same shade for color wash of eyeshadow on upper and lower lids with a little dab of highlight on inner corners, some lip liner for definition with my gloss, and my brows fluffed and tinted with my ginger mascara that I also use on eyes.) If I’m going for an elegant look for a night out or an event, I do a warm nude eye with lots of the same mascara, brows, a little blush and a plummy or wine red lip. Sometimes I do brick red or true red but never super bright. I used to play with makeup a lot more in my early 20s, some of it looked great but other styles just weren’t for me. Now for me it’s all about playing up what I feel makes my best features pop and my face look its best rather than what is trendy or whatever. My best friend does crazy/intense eye looks all the time tho and she looks awesome bc she has a shaved head and a mega gorgeous face.

For the record I don't have brown skin, but I think what's important is using pigmented eyeshadows with a tone and saturation that matches you. If your skin can't pull off saturated vibrant colors, don't bother, and this goes for light and dark skintones. You probably suit washed out soft colors, the only rule is if you use something that's lighter than your skin, regardless of saturation, you just need to apply a lighter eyeshadow base so it can pop. The only 'problem' with darker skins is that you need more opacity, more coverage. A concealer can do the trick but a white eyeshadow base (the nyx jumbo pencil is good for the price) will really make the color pop if that's what you want. Using cream shadows and pencils will also give more opacity, but if you stick to nude looks it might not be necessary. Picrel is the kind of colorful but soft, unsaturated looks I think you could pull off and you might not even need a base for it.

Improving your skin is always going to be first priority. I’m white as a ghost with terrible acne and a picking problem as well but my makeup has never looked as good as when I really committed to healing my skin. Niacinamide serums can help with redness, Rosehip seed oil and Buckthorn oil really improve my complexion, and a gentle cleanser where you wash for a full minute each time are all good placed to start. For makeup techniques are going to help you more than specific products. Tutorials for the Demi method are good as they’re more targeted, just don’t get whatever mlm brands they tend to shill. Green correctors are good but even if you have a lot of redness you should use the sparingly as whenever I used something like a green primer I tended to look deathly if it was all over my face. Look up Alexandra Anele on youtube, specifically the one on making your base makeup look like skin. I use it and my makeup looks so much better.

As a tip to anyone else with hooded eyes:

Pencil eyeliners are much better for this eyeshape. I'm so surprised. I've used liquids for years but they are difficult to work with especially if you're trying to create a wing. I suppose because the substance is too thin in texture and takes just a little too long to set that it can quickly migrate out of place. Pencil eyeliners are waxy and you can just go directly over the crease and clean up afterward. Saw this trick on youtube from a pro MUA. It is seriously so much easier to create a wing with pencil eyeliner.

Personally I'm no longer doing a sharp wing anymore though I'm doing a sort of grungy smoked out wing.

As the other anon said, you should probably focus on skincare and go see a derm if you can. Makeup is gonna clog your pores and can worsen your skin if not cleaned properly. To cover acne, I'd recommend spot concealing with a green corrector first then covering up with a high coverage foundation like the MUFE HD stick, a concealer or something similar. Your green corrector needs to be similar to your skintone, so if you're really pale you need a pastel green (you can mix it with a light concealer if needed) and if you're darker you'll need a more saturated darker green, see vidrel on color correcting 101.

Look into Seasonal Color Analysis to find your colors. After that you can search "make up for (your face shape)", "foundation for (your skin type)", "how to apply (makeup product)" etc. Pinterest is helpful too.

Brick/warm orange or red tones, apricot for the top row. Bottom row would probably look better with a muted peach or natural pink like her lips as she seems to have a slightly more neutral color scheme. Same with blush, go for light peach/apricot tones. Also if you look bad with lipstick try a more smudged/natural way of applying. some of us just look retarded with super crisp outlines. I would make a bunch of product suggestions but since I'm a k-beauty shill it may not be the sort of thing you like/can easily get

>>356006
white liner looks stupid on nearly everyone without circle lenses, same with most harsh lower eye enlarging techniques. See young zoomers for proof

>>356059
Anything dark you put on your undereyes will accentuate the curve and pull them down. get a good highlighting color for the first 3/4 of your bottom eyelid and use less/more discret mascara on your bottom lashes. point your eyeliner in the inner corner (think fox eye but less retarded and more downwards) this way the outer corner and wing tip will look higher in comparison.

Color correcting can help neutralize tones without caking on foundation and concealer though? It needs to be used more sparingly than influencers usually do but it’s not a bad technique kek. I had terrible acne like the who anon asked and trying to cover with just foundation took forever and looked awful. Intense discoloration is much harder to cover than just a few pimples.

‘Clean girl’ makeup is elitist and classist. Instead of being about artistry, skill or use of products (which pretty much anyone can afford nowadays due to the wide selection of drugstore products that are just as good as expensive brands, and anyone can put the effort in to learn) it’s become about ridiculously expensive skincare and skin treatments and plastic surgery and increasing the pressure on young girls to be ‘effortlessly, naturally beautiful’ without any obvious aid of cosmetics.

I don’t know about irreversible damage, that sounds like an exaggeration, but you should definitely make a point to remove your makeup and get in that habit.

You're supposed to wash your face every day right? I see this question as what what happen if you never wash your face. For one, if you have acne prone skin/oily skin, the make up would just clog your pores and the natural microbiome on your skin will probably get fucked up, which is already the case if you have acne prone skin. All of that shit is going all over your pillow cases when you sleep, sure you can just wash them straight after, but most people do not wash them every day.

Yeah sorry nonny it's basically for the opposite eye type: shallow set and already lots of eyelid fat.

Dumb question and sorry if it’s already been answered but do you put spf sunscreen under or over (liquid foundation)? Under primer? Either way I’m finding it wrecks the consistency of the foundation but I live in a literal scorching UV hellscape.

No. 360481

>>360479
I put it under/instead of either. Primer is supposed to help your skin consistency by filling in pores etc and helping foundation stick, so the right lotion or suncreen can achieve the same goal. Foundation goes over it as a general blender/color affector to form a base. You might need to experiment with different combos of all the products to land on the best final texture combo, especially depending on what you need it to last for… basically just try it out.

If contoured aegyosal looks bad on you you can try to achieve a similar effect just with highlighting/strobing. Also the contour actually needs to be quite light handed to look good in real life, a very pronounced line only looks good on camera even on shallow set eyes.

>>356348
the left shadow color could be good for blush, and even if red doesn't fit what about the other colors I mentioned like apricot and peach tones ? Also your coloration isn't all that matters, i.e red would not look "aging" on the top row from >>356204 but would definitely look more mature on someone with deeper/stronger features or even the bottom row AI girl, you have to take into account the visual impact and definition of your own facial features.

If you want to do this lip look faster, I recommend buying Chinese or Korean lip tints.
I have picrel and with this one specifically, yes the blur effect is different than trying to replicate with western lip tints. To me, western lip tints or lipsticks are more heavy on the lips and more pigmented and if you don't master the blur effect, the ombré line might be too harsh. Also, most western lipsticks dry really quick and you have to be fast, picrel is buildable, has a more airy texture and doesn't dry the fuck out of my lips. I did this type of lip look with the Maybelline superstay one in the past and yes, you can replicate that with a q-tip and lots of patience, it doesn't hit the same like the rom&and one to me at least

The swatch pics are obviously shooped to be more blurry, but I do think that asian brands have way better formulas for lip products. I also like their color selection a lot because they tend to have more muted, natural shade with different undertones so it's easier to find something you like that also suits you. To get a blurry effect, you could try using concealer around the lips and put some hd powder all over (I also think the superstay liquid lip >>360744 mentionned is great for a similar effect, it's a matte/satin texture).

I have never really used it except some poor attempts at covering my dark circles, but i want to keep a natural look and i feel like i have to get used to the "feel" of makeup on my face, but i'm always too conscious if i'm wearing it, and i'm always too jumpy or scared if someone is applying it to my face.

All you do is put like two dots of concealer where your dark circles are it takes 30 seconds to blend in.

>How long did it took you to get good and comfortable with it?
I started wearing makeup pretty late in life (around 16/17) and until then, when I had other people doing my makeup, I would start crying and flinching when they got around my eye area. What helped me was being an eyelinerfag (I still am) and doing my eyeliner for special occasions. Iirc, my first eyeliner was this Rimmel London one, it was shit, but the brush was soft and helped me get over that fear. I don't know if they make this anymore. Now, I don't wear makeup on the regular and never did so that might help too if you don't like the feeling of makeup.

the world of masculine makeup tutorials was completely unknown to me until you mentioned it just now, but that makes sense to me because mascara is instantly feminizing. I imagine adding mascara is the difference between an edgy shane look and a smoky eye.
off topic but I've only ever dated normie girls who wear no to minimal makeup and aren't even super butch, so the idea of a masc woman going to the work of doing a full face contour look is so crazy to me. but god the girl in this video is so unbelievably hot

I would just be careful about not putting powder or skin products on your lashes, for example concealer can end up there and they'll look beige or transparent which is not necessarily flattering. I take a wet q tip to wipe that off, then curl. If you still feel like something is missing, a brown mascara applied very lightly can still look masculine.
You know when your contour is blended if you don't have visible streaks. Experiment on your face and check how it looks in natural day light, be careful about using the right shade (not too warm, not too red or too gray) and try replicating the natural shades on your face, very lightly and then building it up as you go.
I also remember that 'boy beat' was a trend like five years ago because of Beyonce's mua, you could look for those tutorials : they're more focused on doing a quick natural and intentionnaly unrefined makeup than contouring to get a sharper, masculine face but they had some great techniques.

I recently went overseas for 2-3 weeks and although I'm not big into make-up I brought the MYO mini travel case. I mainly wear cream products and use brushes & my fingers with application. All my products are multi-purpose so I needed to make them smaller versus reducing the number of products used. It was mainly for everyday with a few special dinners/events.

I brought the mini case and two 3-pan containers.
One for concealer, contour/bronzer & eyeshadow primer (MAC creme eyeshadow Painterly)
One for 2 x blushes & 1 x high-lighter.
It also fit in 2 x 3ml perfume & one short brow pencil.
This fit the bulk of my makeup with only my primer, skin tint, finishing powder, UD Space cowboy eyeshadow, 2 eyeshadow pencils, mascara & 2 lip items.

It really helped shrinking it all down and I've been debating about buying the larger size as I could keep a few more of the looser items inside it. I would also use a small deep pot for the concealer as that was the only item I hit pan on but didn't run out of.

Not really, I do standard 'feminine' makeup (black pencil in the upper waterline and a little bit on the eyelid) and I don't use mascara at all because I hate wiping it off, it doesn't look weird. Try dying your lashes with henna (remember to check if you're allergic first) and curling them if they aren't curled naturally, use eye pencils and crayons, they tend to look more 'naturally undone' than liquid eyeliner.

No. 362939

This sounds counterintuitive because concealers tend to be thick but as someone who any of the lighter options do nothing for, I've got great results out of layering skincare+moisturiser, 50+ sunscreen (generic store brand, I care more about the actual protection factor and they deliver), highly pigmented concealer (Shape Tape works but Thin Lizzy is my go to). I use a very small amount of the concealer and only apply once the sunscreen is almost absorbed, it acts as a primer but also dilutes it. It gives a really natural effect but is good for lessening dark eye circles or covering minor pimples or discolouration. I add a little mascara, a very light brush of setting powder (honestly almost any) and then spray with the mecca brand setting spray. I used to do a full face and get compliments but this looks so natural that it takes years off while getting rid of the stuff I want to hide. Foundation never gave the payoff that I wanted for the sheerness but as stupid as a fullface of concealer does, it literally looks like nothing if you get the right amount.

No. 362957

I do this too and my mom does also. I think she actually taught me it. If you hydrate well and get a really good thick creamy non creasing concealer in the right shade, you can basically just skip foundation and sheer out the concealer into the sunscreen/skincare base. Personally I hate the feeling of wearing a foundation mask and it creases and wears off patchily during the day no matter how much I prime or set, so I find using concealer just around my nose and eye circles as well as on pimples is enough. If you use your exact shade or a bit lighter it’s basically undetectable no matter what lighting you are in and I love that,I feel like foundation is always noticeable up close irl no matter how well it’s blended.

I think you're probably a 'winter' if the coral blush looks bad on you. IME it is totally possible to need to wear a 'warm toned' foundation but look better with cool toned blush and lipstick. Seasonal Color Analysis was written for clothing, not makeup. Makeup is usually sheerer to begin with since it mixes with your underlying skin tone and it is normal for warm toned people to have cool toned lips like in the picture you posed. Even the most warmly toned image in the lower left still has cool toned lips. I think most people are better off using sheer lip products, it's almost always more flattering anyway.

I heard bad things about their powder formula stuff like eyeshadows. You should watch a few YouTube reviews and make sure to buy items one by one if you want it to be affordable.
Dont just buy it because of the pretty exterior, its the same thing as the makeup sold in drugstores or sephora, might even have a worse ingredient list if it wasnt checked by European standards.

I have a blush and lipstick from them. I like the formula but I don't think their palettes would be worth the splurge. Their packaging is pretty, but it's bulky and impractical. The blush is just okay, and the lipstick is good, but you can find better/like formulas from Korean brands with better ingredients and for cheaper.

Hey nonas! So I have absolutely NO clue how to do my eyebrows. I know well done eyebrows can make you look so much better but I just never really understand how to do it. Mine aren't very full, not very sparse either, uneven, and set pretty close to my eyes. I never know where they're supposed to start and end. And tips or tutorials would be appreciated!

follow the Anastasia golden ratio. Im the esthetician nona and use it on almost all of my brow clients. It's pretty fool proof unless you have particularly narrow or wide set eyes. Also i prefer the look of doing a heavier hand on top and bottom of the brows from the arch to the ends, then a light hand just under neath on the inside toward the nose to the arch and brushing up with a spoolie to get that soft blended effect. I recommend doing this with any thin twist up brow pencil. My favorite one after trying many is by far the sephora collection precision brow pencil. it's exactly the same as benefit/anastasia just half the price. For drug store the skinny nyx twist up isnt bad

I'm looking into trying Romand Juicy Lasting lip tint but I can't decide on the shades I want. I'm looking at FigFig, Eat Dotori, Dark Coconut, Peeling Angdo and Almond Rose. I have very yellow/green olive skin, of light medium depth. For reference my favorite lipsticks are MAC Marrakesh, KVD Plath, Wet n Wild Sandstorm and Tom Ford Casablanca. I lean towards brick colors and very peachy, warm nudes. Anything slightly pink or mauve looks either neon pink or corpse purple, but I really want to find a nice cool toned muted rosy/plummy shade.

If you have warm skin id steer away from plummy shades and replicate the feel/vibe with dark brows and reds, coolest being a neutral shade, like the dark coconut shade.

Having extreme undertones sucks, nothing ever looks like it does in the tube/swatched.

As much as I like brown shades and warm ones, a nice muted plum is my white whale and I'm willing to go broke trying to find it kek

As a mixed Wasian girl, Dear Peachie’s videos have helped me so much in figuring out what makeup style suits me. I always wondered why I looked so washed out and plain when trying ‘natural makeup looks’ but get so many compliments when I wear bold lip and heavy eyeshadow/liners. For a long time I tried to do subtle girly kpop idol style makeup but now I realize I suit dramatic red carpet Chinese actress style makeup far more. Her videos are targeted mostly at Asians and use Asian references so if you’re of that race they may help a lot. Even if you’re not Asian I think she can still help you find what type you are. I’m definitely dramatic romantic.

not sure if this should be in skincare general or the advice thread but since it involves makeup i'll ask here. does anyone else get really swollen eyelids when they use fake lashes? lashes used to be a staple to all my makeup looks a couple years back but one day my eyes started to get extremely swollen and red when i'd take them off. i've used several different lash glues but all of them give me the same reaction. i've used lash glues for sensitive eyes and gotten the same reaction. not sure if it's an allergy thing or just a skin sensitivity thing since lash glue can contain lots of ingredients that may irritate skin, but i just want to ask because i really miss wearing them but every time i take my makeup off or peel them off, they immediately swell. it doesn't happen with any other makeup products weirdly enough? just lashes. if anyone has experienced this and has any solutions please let me know because i really miss adding them to my looks.

Nonnie, what kind of lashes do you use? I developed an allergy to fake lashes last year which was devastating because I love wearing them for events. From my research, it seems like a lot of people develop an allergy to the latex or acrylates in the lash glue.
I've tried every latex free, acrylate free glue I could find. The one glue that is latex and acrylate free is Tatti Lashes So Sensitive lash glue. I always tested the glues on my eyelids and I'd never have a reaction… until I paired them with lashes.
Turns out it's actually the lash band that is causing my allergic reaction. I bought a lot of them from TaoBao as they have the type I like (spiky), but I think a lot of manufacturers have changed the fibers and it's causing irritation. I recently swapped to House of Lashes and while I may get an itch here and there, I don't have the reaction or swelling that I used to and I can wear lash glue with latex and acrylates again.

If you can stand the really difficult learning curve, I'm a dual magnetic lash main. One over and one under your lashes. It's easier if you cut them to be on the mids to ends of your lash line (if your natural lashes are long enough to blend into them). Silly George and Ardel Magnetic Accents on Amazon is where I get mine from.

It's a fast and convenient glue-free way to wear lashes, but requires practicing at home for at least a couple hours to get used to them.

when i look it up this was the most common answer but i was really hoping it would be something else. i'm a bit jealous of people who can wear lashes with no issue, but a cute makeup look for one day isn't worth 2-3 days of dealing with my eyes being super puffy and red so i'll avoid latex products from now on. thank you!
>>369842
i was embarrassed to answer this at first because i'm very frugal, but i've gotten a lot of my lashes from aliexpress because similar to what you said, they had the kinds of lashes i liked for nice prices. my eyes reacted to them completely normally for about 6-7 months? until one day my eyes were noticeably drier, then stung/felt sore, then went to full swelling after i kept trying to use them normally. at first i thought it was just lack of moisture so i applied vaseline to my eyes after taking off my makeup and if i wasn't wearing makeup, but it didn't do anything. i've used pharmacy/drug store lashes before and some of them had the same reaction unfortunately. thank you for the recommendations! i'm not sure if they sell the lashes or the lash glue you mentioned in my country but i'll order online if i have to, also comforting to know i'm not alone since i never see anyone talk about this when it comes to makeup.
>>369961
i never understood how magnetic lashes worked but i'll test them out if it means avoiding regular lash glue. sorry if i sound silly but just curious, i've heard that putting them under your lashes can be irritating and harmful to your eyes? i've never seen any real reason as to why it's harmful, just wanted to ask because i want to try this out (also sounds like it'd look cute)

No. 370053

>I've heard that putting them under your lashes can be irritating and harmful to your eyes?
thats for the regular glue lashes. The glue can be more irritating in closer contact with eyes.

For magnetics they're not irritating at all just make sure to clean them regularly, I just spray with a little bottle of rubbing alcohol and wipe them, and re-use them for months.
If you apply them wrong they can pinch a bit, what you do is grab onto them with your thumb and index finger and slide them away from each other and try again. If you're a tactile person good at crafts and stuff you'll get used to it, but most dual magnetic lashes have 3 star reviews not because of the lash quality but because of the difficulty of use. A tip I give out is to apply the top one sorta where you want it (the bottom one pulls it to position even if its not perfect) then make wide open "crazy eyes" and apply the bottom ones flying UP not IN. if you try to come horizontally in with them, they will zoop together too soon and be all fucked up. If you are really close to the eye and fly up, the magnet does its job and its in position perfectly.
Also, you can start easy and cut it down to ends only so you're working with a short, 1 magnet strip to make a cat eye enhancer to your regular, mascara-applied lashes.

Also, store them on a metal plate or a metal base of a mirror. Store them in the shape you want to match your eye, the lash strip will stay that shape. not like I or C but in between, this help application so much. I stored them hastily before and they became L shaped lol.

Don't be embarrassed, I bought my old lashes because they were cheap too! I'm US based so I hope you can find something that works for you soon. Other tips and tricks that worked for me included using eczema cream for my eyelids (this was way more soothing than vaseline) and also using warm compresses at night. The lash glue can end up clogging your meibomian glands, which can cause the swelling and irritation. Good luck and don't give up! If you need any help finding a retailer in your country who might be able to get the lashes or glue you want to try out, just drop your country and I'm happy to look around.

I've been trying to use tutorials to improve my makeup and i can seldom seem to find a tutorial where a MUA has the same eye shape. There also aren't a lot of celebrities with my eye shape who don't get blephs or some kind of surgery. I want to throw hands at my sad eyes. deep set, semi hooded lids but not a lot of lid space and creases at the tops which makes eye makeup very bothersome. I've given up on liner at this point but I'm trying to improve my eyeshadow to the point where it doesn't make my eyes look sad, downsy and bitchy. I've been doing my makeup wrong for years. Nobody ever told me till recently how wrong I was doing it. my eyes are not thin enough or lack enough lid space to be truly hooded, but they're not large or spacious enough to be considered round. They used to be my favorite feature and now I'm starting to fucking hate them

I'm somewhere between almond and droopy and can't pull off half the looks with my lack of skill but also with my shape. I'm just trying to figure out something that works by giving the illusion my eyes pull upward. without liner.

Look for Jirai Kei tutorials for this particular style. The eyebags are called aegyo sal in korean and that's the most used term worldwide but the Japanese term is namidabukuro/tear bag. The word for droopy eye make-up is tareme

This technique has been used for a variety of styles over time. Gyaru did and still do the exaggerated droop x aegyosal combo and now it's popular on Douyin too.

Also beware that it only looks good with circle lenses. Otherwise it just gives you weird sanpaku that makes your iris/pupil look small.

Honestly it really depends on your eye color, if you already have sanpaku eyes and where you start the droop/enlargement of the eye. I have dark brown/black normal iris eyes, I start the eye enlargement makeup around the middle/slightly more on the outer side of my eye like ayrt's pic and it looks great without lenses, If you do the eye makeup on the whole eye like picrel than yeah circle lenses are a must even if you don't have natural sanpaku/light color eyes

For reference I tried Missha creams in 23 and thesaem tip concealer in 1.5 and they're a bit too yellow. Rimmel 040 Soft Beige is pinker but it's discontinued and their foundation smells like acrylic paint.

I just bought a big haul from there last week, the shipping is painful (your only option is pretty much DHL and their calculations inflate the price) but I say it's worth it to get Japanese drugstore goods at their actual prices and have it at your door in like 5 days or less. I'm never overpaying for Canmake ever again. I don't think my parcel was very well protected for an international flight, it was par for the course for Amazon to just stuff spare space with paper but thankfully everything came safe and there weren't any particularly fragile objects in there.
Keep in mind Amazon won't ship things with alcohol or solvents in them, judging by certain things I couldn't add to my cart like perfume and nail polish. I have heard of people buying from Amazon JP through a proxy (you don't check out your cart and ship through them, you give the proxy the link to their item page) but I don't know how cost effective that is or what benefit it has over a direct purchase.

In fairness, the odds of this being wearable are pretty slim. If it were a good formula it would still be in production. It's probably thick, congeals, expires quickly, and isn't wearable while simultaneously leaving stains on everything it touches. It looks really viscous and unwearable

I want to look into skin bleaching because I don't like my current skin tone, it's just too beige. I'm white so it's not like a race or cultural thing.

I know skin bleaching is dangerous but I've wanted this since I was extremely young, I would just like to be a little paler. I already use sunscreen and keep to the shade (or always walk with an umbrella) on the very rare occasions I leave during the day, so I know I'm at the limit of how pale I can naturally get (without makeup or white cast sunscreen).

Can anyone actually give me recommendations on looking into skin bleaching? I don't do anything unhealthy so in the karmic balance of the universe or something I should be allowed one unhealthy thing to do. lol

If you're not leaving home and avoiding the sun like a vampire you're already doing unealthy things. You should wear sunscreen but the sun rays won't kill you, you need that vitamin d intake. Anyway, you can't be recommended bleaching products because they're usually illegal outside of thirld world countries, for good reasons. Using uncontrolled products is a huge gamble, especially when bleaching creams are known to contain mercury or arsenic. Ruining your skin with scars, early onset wrinkles and cancer to maybe be a few shades lighter? Also, one of the more ironic side-effects is that it can lead to permanent darkened patch of skin, see picrel. Just buy some lighter makeup if you want to look like a ghost like goths do. I'm not even sure if you can get lighter than you are with bleaching, the 'beige' undertone that you mention is just the natural flush of your skin showing that blood is circulating and you're, you know, alive. Your pic looks like it's taken in front of a screen with harsh cool toned light, which, on top of the contrast with the black hair/top, makes it more pale than she really is. Don't compare yourself to internet pics, go outside and look at people's normal, beige skin, and rejoice in the fact that you're already that pale sickly girl.

There isn't such a thing and as another anon pointed out, all the products are illegal and for a good reason. White people are beige, the undertone is what changes. You might be perceiving is thar your undertone is more yellow than pink. Which isn't something you can change either, so I think it's something you should learn to accept in yourself.

Like it was said before, the skin colour in the picture has probably something to do with lightning and/or editing afterwards. It takes me one minute to create that skin colour in the picture just by playing with saturation.

I understand your wish, I have the same, but I'm not stupid enough to use skin bleaching products. You can try some Vitamin C cream or a self made mask with Curcuma, which will make you yellow afterwards and takes forever to get rid of, but makes you appear a little bit paler for one or two days. What also would help is being sick or if you have iron deficiency. But ruining you health just for a skin colour that is genetically not meant for you is just stupid and useless.

My eyelids are hooded and slightly uneven. It's not noticeable usually but whenever I do eye makeup besides mascara one eye looks noticeably different, my eyelid is much more visible on one side if that makes sense. Is there any way to make my makeup match better?

No. 386511

>>386399
I used to have uneven eyelids before I got ptosis surgery to correct it, so this is right up my alley. Back then I had perfected a makeup style to try to even them out. Sorry I don't have pictures, but:
Basically, on the "more visible" (droopy) eyelid, I would do slightly thicker eyeliner above the lashline, then subtly line the upper waterline with white or nude. On the other, "normal" eye, I would do a slightly thinner eyeliner above the lashline, then line the upper waterline with a dark color. This basically gave the effect of making my "droopy" eye look more opened and my "normal" eye look slightly droopier, thereby evening them out.

All skin bleaching as done in East Asia for Kpop idols and stuff is just them taking antioxidants. There's nothing really unhealthy about taking vitamin C supplements (idols get it done via infusions iirc). Skin bleaching creams are all scams at best and actively harmful at worst, but standardized antioxidants like vitamin C are safe enough to try out. You won't get much paler though. People shoop their skintone a lot so don't fall for it.

I had the worst experience with Glossier's mascara. It was great for the first few weeks after I got it, then it dried up so much that I had eyelashes break and fall off e every time I washed it off, no matter how gentle I was. For a while I thought it was just a waxy formula because I've never had a mascara dry out that badly before. Checked online and nope, everyone complained about how dry it got. Waste of $16.

I'm curious to hear how other anons figured out what truly looks best for them. I can't help but sperg on this because it's fascinating how different methods work for different people, but we somehow get a misconception that sticking to a trend will benefit us instead. For example, I found out that shaving and drawing my eyebrows on instead of just "accepting" my low blocky brows have saved me a lot of time when it comes to getting ready, since i ponder a lot on why my finished look appears so awkward. Just changing my brows made my eye makeup improve and the finished look doesn't look off anymore. I also learned how to do my eyeliner in a way that changes my overall eyeshape. Also, to oily nonas, I suggest a matte base, since it helps keep my makeup look neat and avoid an oily appearance. What changes did you guys do for yourselves and how long did you guys realize them? It honestly took me about 3 years.

I've watched so many dearpeachy videos but all the girls they use as makeup/hair/accessory examples are already gorgeous and can pull off styles that aren't "supposed" to suit them, so they're often hard for me to follow even though they're supposed to be super helpful.

I recently started to use a Chinese beauty app that allows me to apply fake makeup, like add lashes, contour, change my eyebrow shape etc so I used that as a base to help me see what actually looked good on me, then I started to replicate it IRL. For example, my eyes are smaller, so I applied lashes that extended from the corners of my eyes which made them look longer and widened them out. I also had bushier eyebrows at the time, but made them thinner in the app, which shortened my face (I wanted this). I made an example using Emma Chamberlain who I think is very pretty, but she regularly posts pics with no makeup so she was a good example for me to use the contour & foundation settings with. I tried to keep in as much of her natural features as possible because that's personally how I like to do my own makeup for events.

Keep in mind that this is just to my taste, so I'm biased in changing her appearance.

Please please please help me understand foundation & powder! I use moisturizer, sunscreen and then foundation, this is how i like it best because at the end my skin has that youthful glow that is popular for korean makeup looks. I have tried using powder at the end a few times, and hated it, because it sucks out the glowiness of the skin, making it super matte, and i look older and dry. But I recently saw Sheraseven and another tiktok girl (who seemed almost angry when she talked about this, which is why i decided to ask), and they both said "if you don't use powder after foundation, that's ratchet and you're crazy. So is it really necessary?? No one has ever commented on my foundation being bad, I also think it looks so good even after a long day, that i ditched the setting spray because i don't need it. Even a sephora employee whom i asked what she thought of it, took a good look and said it looks fine to me. So why is powder so necessary? (For powder i have the Nyx can't stop won't stop mattifying powder, when i use it it's like photoshop airbrush). Now i don't know if you might say "why are you complaining that a mattifying powder is making your skin look matte?", but i thought that that was always the point of powders? Please nonas give me your advice, i love my glowy look but don't want to look crazy!

You sound a bit inexperienced so maybe you just need to experiment more. Powder is to set everything if you wear anything creamy, but if your skin is naturally quite dry I can see why powder might seem contradictory. I’m very oily and only use the sheerest cc cream, but I put a really fine dusting of cheap powder on once and not again bc otherwise my cheek tint might slide or rub off w my oil. Best primer to promote dewy Korean look skin is Illamasqua hydraveil, the regular clear gel one. It has a slight plumping effect too, and is the ideal base for a mega healthy glowy look!! You don’t need to use powder if you don’t feel like your look suffers without it tbh.

Literally do whatever you want, makeup influencers can be annoying and everyone's skin and needs are different. Glowy vs matte is just a preference. Certain powders cling to my dry patches when I have them and look gross so I don't always feel the need to use it. I have naturally dry combination skin but moisturize heavily/religiously. I like using light amounts of it so my face feels less damp and my hair won't stick to my skin after using cream products.

You're fine. If you don't have a problem with how your current routine is servicing you, you're fine.
I think some MUAs think it's necessary for "setting" the foundation/look, but it sounds like your makeup is staying put throughout the day without it. It's important to keep in mind that a ton of what MUAs say isn't applicable to the majority of people for day to day needs.

Girls thank you so so much for the replies!
>>389699 you are spot on, my skin is dry and i think that is why the makeup sticks for so long, even without setting spray. And thank you for the product recommendation!
>>389734 that's exactly what happens! It sticks to dry patches just as you mentioned! I will take your advice on putting it so that my hair doesn't stick to my face, because it constantly happens with my sides and bangs, because of the sticky sunscreen. (I can't help but wonder if the sponge sucks out the sunscreen's properties?)
>>389774 thank you for the reassurance. And yes, i think that is exactly what they meant. Since i posted the question, i learned that there are different kinds of powder: mattifying, translucent, setting.. i think they meant the setting one, because then i would understand it looking "ratchet and crazy" if the products start moving around the face.
I have a new question then: so if powder is to set creamy products and more fitting for oily skin, then setting spray is for drier skin, right? Basically the opposite (not all the time of course, i see some tutorials use both)

I recently made a lot of lifestyle changes - exercise, diet, etc. I noticed I was still feeling very lethargic and fatigued and I was confused why. I did a deep dive into my makeup products and found out I was absorbing way too many heavy metals and talc which were contributing to my shitty mood. I used to think that caring so much about “living clean” was woo woo bullshit but since I changed my makeup out for less toxic ones I genuinely feel so much better and it doesn’t feel expensive since I was already wasting so much money on Fenty products at Sephora anyways. I used this girl’s video as a guide to buy my new products but I’m sure there’s a lot more out there. I was worried I wouldn’t be able to do super cute looks anymore wearing weird hippie products but she managed to contour her face nicely so I’ll be alright, but I’m trying to get rid of my dependence on wearing false lashes and doing intense looks every day.

No. 404286

I'm one of those people who have always thought I looked much older with heavy makeup, so I try to be very minimal. At most I wear just a slightly winged eyeliner and very light, shimmery eyeshadow, and a lipstick color that isn't too dark. I also learned not to fill in my eyebrows too dark because it looks harsh on me so I go with just a bit of brow mascara. I think the last thing that can make you look older is emphasizing lines on the skin, and I find what helps for me is just trying to go for a makeup look that isn't completely matte because that tends to end up looking a bit cakey and overdone. I don't wear matte lipstick either as I think it tends to make my lips look dry and a bit of lip gloss or oil is just more flattering.

You should go full Rose McGowan 90s pale face red lip minimal but dark eyeshadow. obviously not the extreme 90s brows, do your own twist on them.

Anyone know what would be a great present for a makeup artist? I was thinking of sending this to my friend but I have no idea if this would be a good thing to give?

Any suggestions?

I really love this, makeup that's inspired by insects' beautiful colors.

I wish they changed up the shades for the different tamagatchis than just different packaging.

Eyeliner in general isn't outdated, but the ginormous wings going up to her brows that Shayna does are dated. A simple cat eye like the one in your pic won't make anyone think you're stuck in 2016. Soft and simple styles are in right now.

I got the Dior lip oil in coral color for a discount and it's really nothing special compared to cheaper options. My unpopular lip oil take is that Lancôme Juicy Shakers (which I also got in a summer sale because no one liked these apparently) really got done dirty, the applicator gave you an instant gradient lip and was fun to use, and the texture and colors were nice, and while they were still ridiculously expensive, the uniqueness of the product made it a tiny bit more justified.

Things are never outdated if they look good on you. Ultimately trends only really determine what you can get away with. I do my makeup like a kyabakura hostess from 2016, but no one cares because it works with my face. Also, your picrel is a timeless style, it's not that obnoxious at all.

If you have access to Asian makeup, online or not, try this. They have brown, dark brown, black.

Yeah (no offense at all) but I think its unspoken that you're just buying for the name. I used to use the Dior lip oil, glosses, lip scrub, and lip glows as a teenager not because they were good but for the experience. In that way I love dior

I don't wear makeup, don't have anything beyond very basic skills and the products I do have are years old at this point. I want to start fresh, but only as I have my first holiday in years coming up and I want to take nice pictures with my partner. He insists he likes me natural but I honestly justcwajt to feel a little bit prettier so I can better face being photographed. I just really don't like how I look and pics make it hard to ignore, still though I want memories with my love to look back on. So yeah I'd really like some easy to use natural look products that will be suitable for a holiday (hot weather)
