That's cool, good idea anon!
Ugh, tell me about it, I'm all for free speech, but they're super spammy with their beta whining. I tried having a thread about fashion or whatever and you had guys whining about how women are vapid for caring about fashion.
It's really annoying and happens all the time. Even worse are the random rants they spam in all thread. Like literally copypastas of why women suck.
Like dude, you have issues with women, but I'm not here to help you with that. I'm here to talk about contraception, high heels and to have some nice banter. You should talk to a counselor about that shit.

Yeah, it's weird how they're cool with racemixing if it's a white guy plus another race, but if it's a white girl plus another race, they mock it.
Pol is fine in my opinion. At least they're open and honest about their racism, unlike those pseudointellectual beta clucks from leftypol that come on /fem/ to whine about how they're nice and feminists but girls still dont like them.
Covert racism and sexism is worse that open racist and sexism. When it's out in the open and obvious, you can engage them, discuss it etc.

Girls, I need your help. Especially any MUA's or advanced makeup geeks.
I have a heart shaped face. I have to contour a lot according to the charts I see, that's cool. So I go to Sephora over the course of 3 months and ask the girls there to recommend me a good contouring products (because I want them allll!).
So far different employees have recommended different brands which are:
Too Faced: Milk Chocolate Soleil, Soleil Matte Bronzer, Sunny Bunny
Tart: 3 Park Ave Princess (They came in palettes), and 1 Park Ave Princess waterproof bronzer
Buxom: Tahiti bronzer
That's a lot of fucking bronzers right? Well fuck me because I just recently started seeing articles and gurus talking about how contouring powders should be Taupe (gray brown) to imitate a natural shadow.
I just looked through my bronzers and they're all brown! I'm so fucking pissed at myself for spending so much on the same shit without doing more research. I can't believe the MUA's at Sephora didn't know this.
I don't bronze.
So… I'm a neutral leaning towards warmer tones (but I can do cool sometimes). Can I get away with using these bronzers for contouring? Aside from that, I have no use for these products.

If you are unable to find the board, use the list of boards button on 8ch and CTRL + F for /beauty/. That should help if these links are still being shitty. I saw some people asking about finding it.
Also, I know many here are from /cgl/ and while I really do not want to steal any thunder from the Admin of 8ch /cgl/, I know that the board is painfully slow and going back to halfchan is a pain for some.

Hopefully, /cgl/ does pick up though.

Since this is a makeup thread, could any kind anons help me out?
I'm pretty shit at makeup to begin with, and I'm having problems finding tutorials for my eye shape. I'm Asian and I have a hooded and mostly hidden double lid so it's almost a combination of both mono and double, and unfortunately most Asian tutorials go for one or the other. I can barely even do winged eyeliner because either the skin on the upper-outer corner of my eye or the hooded part of my lid always smudges it. Any tips/references to people with the same eye shape? Will be eternally grateful.
Pic related, thank you <3
I have the exact same eyeshape as you and you can do a lot with make up there. it took me ages to figure it out for the exact same reason you mentioned: most advice is either for mono lid or double lid, not in between.
winged eyeliner works very well if you make it pointy. the wing has to start before your lid drops so it doesn't go completely to the outer corner of your eye.
always put very bright concealer on the outer corner to hide the dropping.
never merge your under lid eyeshadow/liner with your upper lid eyeshadow/liner because that emphasizes the dropping.
stretch your eyelid while applying eyeshadow and eyeliner. for some reason tutorials aways advice not to do this but with a hooded lid you have to. otherwise your make up will look dirty because you can't apply it accurately on excess lose skin.
I hope this helped you a little. I'm not very good at explaining make up in english because it's not the standard stuff you learn in your english class.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4fur_12EEc
this tutorial works very good for your type of eye, you just have to keep in mind not to merge the under eye/upper lid eyeshadow like she does and instead brighten your outer eyecorner.

That makes sense. I've never worn lenses before either, but the taking care of them seems like just common sense. I'd probably only wear them when I got with friends and shit.
Some of the stuff I'm not really knowledgeable about is when websites list diameters, water content, and shit. What sort of numbers are good and what are bad?

Illamasqua's white foundation is better, but I haven't been able to afford it all the time.

The push up liner can dry out if you don't store it right (like all gel eyeliner, don't let it get exposed to air when not in use). Maybelline makes a dupe that actually came out before Benefit's, but it seems like it's only available in Asia and the UK?
If you want drugstore options, Physician's Formula makes a great eyeliner pen in black and ultra black, with a brush tip rather then a felt tip pen. Maybelline makes some nice ones as well, right now I've been using the Stiletto one (the tip is more like a cone-shaped sponge rather then a felt tip) and it's only just started to fry up after about 9 months. I have the Loreal Slim liner one as well, but I find the tip to be a little stiff, and it doesn't come in waterproof.
Urban decay also make a nice one that's very black, but I find it's too stiff for me to use.
I have one of the intense butter glosses and that stains your lips, so when it fades it fades nicely imo. I really like their matte lip cremes as well (though I have the two darkest colors, Copenhagen and Transylvania. The latter is a bit patchy, but the former just looks amazing.)

I don't think it's waterproof but I bought this on a whim in a supermarket in the UK over a year ago and it's become my go-to mascara ever since.

File: 1454428185844.gif (7.68 KB, 500x262, Dimethicone.gif)
Anyone else allergic to dimethicone?
It's a silicone-based ingredient that makes stuff feel really soft and non-greasy (a lot of primers and BB creams have it- oh and most sunscreens).
It makes my skin break out into a rash and my face swell up until I look like a monster. It feels really bad, since so many nice products contain it.
Any advice for a good BB cream that doesn't contain dimethicone? I tried The Body Shop's and it's really gooey.

I want to wear more lipstick, but I'm horrendous at picking out colors that don't look like shit after I put them on. I'm pale and have brown eyes/eyebrows and light brown hair. Are there any lip colors that are a yes or no with these features?

Also, regardless of skin tone temp, when picking a red lip shade try to pick a shade that is more blue toned or cooler in tone. This is mostly because it'll make your teeth look whiter, and the right shade of a blue toned red lip rarely looks bad on anyone. If you have either an Ulta or a Sephora near you, go to the Urban Decay counter and swatch the colors 69 and Fbomb. Both are really nice reds that work on just about anyone. 69 is deeper and more neutral and Fbomb, pic related, tends to look cooler in tone on most people.
Also their Mia Wallace lipstick from the Pulp Fiction line is amazing but I don't know if it's still available.
You might be overdoing it and drying out that area with too many products. I'm not 100% sure though, but I would suggest looking here for answers: http://skinacea.com/
Also, do you know if you get enough omega-3? I would highly recommend taking supplements if you don't already. In addition to helping skin, it's good for your nails and hair, too. Might also help with hormonal issues.

For dark packaging, look into Anna Sui cosmetics. I always liked how her stuff looks.
On the more cutesy end, there is Etude House, Too Faced, and TheBalm have very cute packaging.
Laduree Cosmetics has some of the fanciest packaging I've seen, but they are very expensive and the products tend to be sold separate to the packaging.

I've been covetting the natural matte pallete from Two Faced, if you're looking for something that can do looks that are for everyday, but could be used for deeper smokey looks, if you didn't want to incorporate any shimmers (or keep shimmers in another palette of specific singles for whatever reason.) Only thing it's missing is a matte black, but that's only really useful if you have black hair or are a deeper skin tone (or both.) Otherwise, it'd likely work for anyone.

How much do you weigh? If you're average weight, could you stand to lose a little more? Or put on muscle and lose fat if you're not comfortable with that.
That's one thing that will demonstrably help with your hooded lids. Beyond that you're stuck with them, and acceptance is perhaps the better route than eyelid glue. If you really want to get rid of them so badly, save up for eyelid surgery, at least it'll look more convincing that the glue.
I have them too, and it's annoying but kinda charming. Rock those lids, I'm sure they look great on you. They're not the easiest eye to do makeup on, but once you learn the tricks and take a look at some tutorials, you too can be a kawaii eyeshadow queen.
Pic related, taylor swift has hooded eyes and she looks gr8 m8.
File: 1456922493736.jpg (104.41 KB, 1024x768, Nicole-Kidman-nicole-kidman-17…)
nope weight makes a difference. when I'm underweight my eyes are a lot "less" hooded than at a normal weight. they are still hooded, but more taylor-swift level hooded than nicole kidman. don’t need to be an obeast to see a difference.
I wouldn't even try to keep it straight but put my chin up. or place a mirror at a significant lower level. also gently pulling your skin tight helps with the application of eyeliner.
and one more thing for all fellow hooded lids anons: eyeshadow base is the most important thing for hooded lids. everyone should use it anyway but especially people with hooded lids.
Hooded lids can be beautiful if you have nice, full lips and a small nose. but hooded eyes + thin lips and/or a big nose = witch face.
File: 1456941876146.jpg (19.13 KB, 500x329, Jf9KJ8E.jpg)
> I highly doubt they have any relation to weight unless you're extremely obese
That's objectively incorrect. Hooded lids are due to fat deposits in the face. They can indeed get extreme with obesity, but even at lower weights it can be an area where fat accumulates. This will vary from person to person- some people have droopy skin there more than fat, but generally losing weight will help.
For keks, extreme obesity can actually make it difficult for you to see

I understand what you're looking for anon. I'm not sure about eyeshape, but the best way to get a more cute and less sexy look is to avoid bottom eyeliner and mascara, and just keep makeup looking more minimal. A shimmery nude eyeshadow, with some light eyeliner and mascara is a good starting point.

I really think for most western eye shapes, any kind of lining of the bottom eye automatically makes it look more sexy or glamorous. If anon above is looking for something cute, then it should be avoided.

Hmm how sparse are talking here? Do you just have very little hair or do you need something to fill it in a bit? I've got thicker eyebrows but, fml, they don't grow in evenly so it's patchy in a couple of spots. Anyways, I've been using Blinc eyebrow mousse and I'm pretty in love with it. It fills everything in and helps maintain shape with out looking overly done. If you want a more natural look I would go with this.

These days I use TonyMoly Petite Cotton. It's only avaliable in one shade, which is a pale olive tone not so different from the lightest shade of Perfect Cover, and the coverage is identical if not better than Missha. That and I can get 3-4 bundles for £10 that last foreverrrrrrr. I do have very sensitive skin including seborrheic dermatitis and this has always been great with it.

I feel like Western cosmetics just chuck whatever into their shit regardless of how bad it is for your skin and dress it up as "luxury European product" with some shitty tagline like "LONDON STYLE" and a huge mark up. Most of the foundations here don't even have SPF… we are so fucking behind.
I was in Superdrug last week and I actually saw the stall for picture related and I started cracking up in the middle of the aisle because you can really tell that Maybelline just fucked up an enormous batch and decided to run with it anyway.

Not really Anon. Have you not been on any of the social medias? People have been plugging this super-contoured, painted-on tranny brows for a few years now. People bought into it, terribly so, and I'm really only just starting to see a reemergence of the more natural, scruffy brows OUTSIDE of modelling and into the mainstream.

Can you guys help me make my dark blue/grey REALLY stand out?
I googled it, but bronze doesn't seem to do shit for me, and I'm kind of bad at eyeshadow (willing to learn if you have tips).
I kind of like tight-lining with black and smudging a little on the outer third, but what else can I do to make them really noticeable?

heyy does anybody has reviews on physicians formula products?? the package its super cute but i dont know anything about this brand.
Hey farmers, the past few months I've been using the KVD lock it foundation, and it's great, it really is! I just think it might be to thick for my comfort, though. Putting it on and blending it no matter if it's a brush, beauty blender, etc is a pain. Also the coverage makes me look too flawless, to the level it looks cakey at times. So, here's my question. What are some good, long lasting, medium coverage foundations? I've heard Naked Skin by UD is good, but I'm weary, Dior Star foundation also looks pretty nice. But what do you guys recommend?

What do you guys think about this highlighter? Everyone's freaking out about it apparently. The Etsy shop is completely sold out now and I guess some people who bought out the shop are selling them on ebay for $1000. It's pretty but I'm just not sure what the practical use for this would be.

So my skin only recently cleared up to the extent that it actually looks good without makeup on, all supple and dewy and shit.
I watched a video recently of a makeup artist applying a particular style, and one of the things she mentioned whilst applying it was that it wasn't necessary to apply foundation all over your face, just in a few key, targeted areas, like around your cheeks or under your eyes.
Call me fucking retarded, but it this common knowledge? Because I've been applying that shit like goddamn moisturiser since I was 17. I mean to be fair it was mostly because I was suffering with eczema and was trying to cover the damage, but since I began following what the MA said, my makeup really does look a hell of a lot better. No more "clogged, heavy" appearance, I look a hell of a lot more youthful too, which is exactly what I thought a full coverage was providing, but nope.
Picture unrelated, but I thought it was lovely makeup.
I've heard good things from korean brands because their look is so heavily focused on good skin, plastering on foundation would not be chic - you need good skin to pull off the effortless look most koreans love.
At the moment I'm still using Jane Iredale - PurePressed® Base Mineral Foundation. There's liquids and other formulas but powder works best for me. All their products for skin are certified non-comedogenic. Imho, I'm not convinced anything you put on your face can be truly non-comedogenic, but this is the closest I've come so far.
Easy to layer, very high SPF built in, can re-apply in specific areas throughout the day (I don't use concealer anymore which is mind boggling, I have deep set eyes and dark circles). It's expensive but worth it, I might not use as much as others, but it's lasted a long time.
It works well for combo skin too, so far it hasn't highlighted dry, patchy parts of my skin it just sits on it.
Anyone else have suggestions? I've only tried this one brand.

It's a powder highlighter though right?
Something I've realised this year is how awful powders look on your face, all dry and cakey. They're terribly ageing.
I think if anybody is going to be using a highlighter they should definitely opt for a stick highlighter or liquid. I abandoned powder foundation and setting powder last year and my skin has legitimately never looked better.
This is not my picture but it's the same highlighter I use; MUA Undress Me.

Because for most girls that use it they end up looking like this after a few hours on a hot day. It settles into your pores and creases terribly.

When disguising redness you need to find a coverage that negates the pigment of whatever it is you're trying to hide. So, you need to look at this colour wheel and select the redness that matches your skin the most, and whatever tone is on the opposite of this wheel is what will cover your redness, so for you it'll be a bluey/greeny bb cream.
Unless the redness is an all-over thing though, it might just be worthwhile to invest in a nice, light bb cream with SPF, and then use a colour corrector on the areas you want to tone down. If you have sensitive skin last thing you're going to want to be doing to it is slathering it in a heavy foundation.
Regarding scarring, I would super recommend looking into facial derma rolling, which you can do at home, and applying sweet almond oil after and every night (it HAS to be SWEET almond oil, the other stuff is toxic).
It's loaded with vitamin E and is also an emollient so it softens the skin. I've been using it twice a day every day for a few months now and all my skin problems have vanished with it (persistent seborrheic dermatitis that legit ruined part of my life).
Sorry to hear about your condition though Anon. I know it's not really the same, but I have keratosis pilaris on my upper and forearms, and even though I know it'll scar I keep picking at them and trying to squeeze out the build-up of keratin. I have only just started to treat my arms with sweet almond oil as a kinda "eurgh, let's see how it plays out" kinda thing, and amazingly it's fucking working, I'm elated.
I hope you find a permanent solution to your problem in the future.

Hey farmers. I just started learning how to do makeup (23, I know, I'm a failure as a girl) but I keep running into the same problems and I was hoping someone here has some advice:
-I have terrible acne scarring from cystic acne from the ages of 14-22. The cysts are gone now thanks to accutane but the hyper pigmentation and pitted scars make me feel like an ogre, and every foundation I try sinks into them and ends up looking like shit after 2-3 hours. Setting powders and sprays don't have any effect on it.
-I don't get the cystic acne anymore, but I do get painful little white pimples sometimes, so far I've only had breakouts after trying new foundations. Missha perfect cover bb cream doesn't break me out but the coverage is shit for my skin because I also have a lot of problems with redness and dark circles
-the triangular area under my eyes on the sides of my nose, where MUAs make those big concealer triangles, has a weird texture. It's almost like plastic, and it wasn't ever like that before accutane but I guess I can't do anything about that. The problem is nothing will stay on that area no matter what primer or spray I use, I even tried a thicker concealer with an almost clay-like consistency and it nope'd the fuck right off in less than an hour. I don't know what the hell is up with that area or what to even begin doing about it.
-My face tends to sweat first when I get hot, I bought blotter papers to help me stop wiping my face with tissues hoping my makeup would last longer but I end up burning through them so fast. Is there a good way to sweat-proof your makeup other than a setting spray? Even urban decay's all nighter setting sprays don't work for me.
Halp, fam. You're the closest thing to a sister/mom I have to help me with this stuff.

Probably any brows with like a more pronounced arch than whatever you have, and brows that slant downward a bit (idk how to explain it well sorry but not like flat or upwards). I would also suggest thinning out your eyebrows maybe? But I can't be sure because idk i have no idea what ur eyebrows look like rn. Picture attached is what im trying to describe.

What are some good makeup shades for people with mousey/dark blonde hair?
I'm such a big fan of heavy, smokey lids with full eyeliner, but I've come to the realisation that it compliments brunettes and black-haired people more. I used to dye my hair for years so I'm only now getting used to my natural shade and I'm still trying to figure out what works best for me. So far I've found:
>sharp black winged eyeliner
>deep red lipsticks
>highlighting from brow to cheebone (no contour)
>smokey brown eyemakeup w/ smudged brown eyeliner
>French style nudes w/ peachy/coral eyeshadows
My hair and skintone is the same as pic related so if anybody has the same tones or some suggestions, I'd love to hear them.

This is probably a very stupid question, but does anyone know how to fill your eyebrows in like that? I bought a make up pencil but it makes my eyebrows look just way too overdrawn and kinda … creamy?
Don't know how to describe it sorry
I have thick eyebrow hairs and it's stupidly easy to go over a spot that doesn't need it, and end up with massive eyebrows.
I've found trimming the length helps a lot to make it even. Plucking out strays is a must, accidentally going over a lighter colored hair on the eyebrow is a bitch. I end up with random blond patches too, so use discretion when plucking them - if it's actually in the main part of your brow it's fine to just cover it. Hope that helps anon, let us know how it goes. Clean your tools, hands, eyebrows ect to help prevent infection and ingrown hairs too.
I found some info that might be of use to you, not sure how relevant it is. http://www.dermnetnz.org/reactions/lipstick-reaction.html
It seems there's a lot that can cause a reaction in the mouth area, and it's not always because of one ingredient or such. However the website I linked to has an common allergy/irritants list, that might be a good place to start.

Ok so I took some of the advice posted ITT and went on a little budget makeup shopping spree and here's what I got:
>Wet N Wild Dual Ended Contour Stick
I tried 3 other contour palettes before buying this and I prefer this over all of them. And the price is unbeatable at less than $4 after tax. AND the contour side isn't too dark for me which was my main problem with contour palettes (all the lightest ones were always sold out fml). It's also super creamy and I use it on top of my eyelid and under eye primer to brighten up my eyes/help hide my dark circles really well.
>E.L.F. Eye Primer & Liner Sealer
Also amazing, this is the only eyelid primer I've found so far other than Urban Decay that doesn't crease. It also makes a good under eye concealer and is about the same price as the contour stick. I haven't tried the liner sealer yet though so idk about that.
>Covergirl Aquasmooth Fondation
Godly coverage for the price. I loved it but even their lightest shade was still too dark for a ghost like me, so I guess I'll keep on re look out for something else since I'm not sure how to go about mixing white with a compact foundation and I'd really rather avoid the mess as well. But if you are looking for coverage and aren't too ghastly pale I definitely recommend giving it a try.
Also I bought one of each of E.L.F.'s brushes except the small tapered and angled contour brushes and I love them all. $3-6 per brush and nice and soft. I also have their kabuki brush and high definition powder and love it as a setting powder (idk if you're supposed to use HD powder to set buy lolwell) and they were also pretty cheap. I also tried their makeup setting spray which was decent but takes forever to dry and comes out more like a spray bottle than a mist which I didn't like.
I guess I don't have a real point to this post except it feels good to come back to the thread that inspired me to really try learning makeup for real, instead of just whining about being too pale or having too many acne scars or not knowing what I need and blah blah blah excuses. I've been playing with the makeup and brushes and watching YT videos of how other girls do their subtle daily makeup/contouring and how they use their brushes and such maybe 2 times a week, 3 if I have time over the last 3 months or so. Sadly I don't have any progress pics since I still have self esteem issues but just having a basic makeup routine with mascara and light contouring and actually trying has gotten me so many compliments at work and school and it's helping to pull me out of my awkward, depressed shell. I'm actually going to hang out with a few girls from work next weekend and we're gonna have a little spa day/makeup party and I'm so excited and nervous because I never had girly friends or a sister to do this kind of stuff with so I'm squealing like a bitch with glee. And idk I just feel like none of it would have happened if I had just ignored this thread.

Sorry for being a noob here. Yesterday was my birthday and I'm planning to treat myself with a Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette since I mostly wear neutral colors.
I want to try to see if I can buy this palette for cheaper than the retail, of course if I can't find one then I'll have to end up saving a bit more to buy it in stores. I'm aware that ebay has counterfeits of this palette and I plan to avoid them as much as possible. How can you guys tell whether a Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette is authentic? By checking the batch code? serial code? etc?
Also, did Too face change the packaging of the Chocolate Bar?

I use makeup sponges and I've never had this problem. I have the real techniques sponge ($6 and way better than the BB which runs for $20) and I use it about 3 or 4 times maybe then I wash it out.
I do so by getting it full of water and then pouring just plain dawn dish soap all over it, then I squeeze and scrub the soap all in the sponge and repeat the process until the water runs clear. However after about 6 months give or take I get a new one, better to be safe than sorry because I am paranoid, lol.

Okay, so, my first time ever trying liquid matte lipsticks was a fucking terrible experience. I bought Colourpop's Trap and Lumière 2. I like the colors, but they look absolutely terrible on me because they suck the moisture out of my lips. They make my lips look so cracked and caked. Also, Lumière 2 is a little sticky. I might just be doing it wrong, idk. I was thinking about getting Beauty Bakerie lip whip, but I'm scared to try liquid lipsticks anymore, eveb if they aren't matte, especially since they're so damn expensive ($20 a piece.) Any advice/recs?
I have the same problem, my lips are like chronically dry, I apply lipbalm pretty much nonstop all the time and matte liquid lipstick always look like shit on me, BUT I find darker colours are a lot more flattering, and I really like stila's liquid lipstick because it seems to be not sticky at all, kind of chalky in texture.
I've tried a lot of NYX liquid lipstick in the past and its just not as good, kind of sticky like you described the Colourpop and makes them look cracked and caked. Honestly, my Stila liquid lipstick looks like regular matte lipstick.

I'm not really a skin care expert but I'll try to give you a few tips based off my experience.
First, you only want to exfoliate 2-3 times a week. More than that is too much and going to contribute to irritation/drying, which means more oil. An excess of oiliness generally means your skin needs more moisture. What has been working amazingly for me (I used to have extremely oily skin with occasional pimples) is a gentle hypoallergenic skin cleanser, followed by a lightweight moisturizer, and then a moisturizing sleep pack at night.
The products I've been using are the hypoallergenic Burts Bees face wash, an Etude House face moisturizer (which is more strongly fragranced than I'd typically like; however, it is extremely light, cheap, and the only lotion that doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy), and the Etude House Bubble Tea sleep pack (the black tea one - again, cheap, doesn't leave me greasy and wake up with incredibly soft, smooth skin). I exfoliate a couple times a week with cheap random drug store shit, my skin doesn't seem to care much. This routine has done wonders for my skin - no more oil, no more breakouts, and it's so much softer. I don't feel the need to wear foundation anymore.
Of course you can substitute with other products that work better for you. Hope that helps!

So, I'm looking to buy a new eyeshadow palette. Currently I'm debating between the chocolate bar palette and chocolate bon bons. However I want to get the one that best matches my complexion. I'm very pale (too pale for most foundations) with cool-neutral undertones. My hair is medium blonde and my eyes are grey, if that matters at all. Which palette would be better?

So excited to try out this felt tip style eyebrow pen. Read a bunch of reviews, apparently you can make fine hair strokes that look really natural. I have a few sparse areas and I can't wait to try it and then use my MAC brow gel on top :) thought I'd share!
I have an ugly nose. It looks quite a lot like the one in the imgur link, and the rest of my face is similar to this girl's features in that particular photo. (I saw her in /b/ and thought of how unfortunate my nose really is, coupled with my hooded eyes, narrow face and strong jaw..not very girly). http://imgur.com/CI5DDfL
I don't know what to do with this nose. I wear light makeup… a bit of mascara/eyeliner and definitely some lip colour, a bit of blush. I often get called pretty, but I just don't see it with these unlucky features.
Do you guys have any ideas/advice on how to make this kind of face look nice?

I need your help /g/.
I really wanna try red eyeshadow but theres not a single red tone in any of the palettes I've accrued over the years. I fancied getting the new UD Ultimate Basics (legit just for the red, because there are similar colours in Naked2 and basics 2 which I own), but I can't afford that right now. I looked at NYX Full Throttle in Colour Riot but not a single store in the UK does it, and their site doesn't ship to the UK without some long drawn out process that includes you signing up to a site that gives you a US address or something. Then I found the Lime Crime Venus Grunge palette and it'd be perfect but I'm hesitant due to the drama (and it's £25 compared to the NYX $10). Anastasia Beverly Hills Renaissance looks good but I cannot afford that either really.
- Where to get NYX Full Throttle Colour Riot in the UK?
- Is there any way I can convince myself to order from Lime Crime?
I know boots sells NYX but i don't know if they have the palette in yet.
Another alternative would be Makeup Revolution's palette 'newtrals vs neutrals'. I have it and honestly it's pretty good and the deep red shade is incredible along side the orangey tones. https://www.tambeauty.com/en/Makeup-Revolution-New-trals-vs-Neutrals-Palette/m-1344.aspx
Buying high street isn't too bad, there's lots of decent affordable makeup about now. In order of importance (bar foundation and mascara which are probably top of this list anyway) I'd say;
- Concealer, but that's just because I get dark circles and the occasional spot. I'd reccommend Rimmel Lasting Finish.
- Eyebrow pencil, I was blessed with naturally well shaped dark brows but filling them in with a more brown colour to match my hair hair works wonders. I think I use Rimmel London
- Contour, You literally only need one shade really, my product of choice is currently MUA Mosaic Bronzer
- Eyeliner, Maybelline Master ink in Matte Black
I only properly started playing with eyeshadow and blushes in the last few months, they're really not neccessary. It's more of a hobby than a 'make myself look pretty' thing. Primer and skincare is also v important but if you've got by with just foundation, it sounds like your complexion is fine.
I think my local one might have a Revolution stand. My one at uni did, but if I want to be sure it's a 15min bus, then a 10-30 minute train. My driving test is next week so the first thing I do if I pass is a trip to get sushi and a proper make up peruse without the boyf nagging me to leave so he can drive me home.
Well, I am a make up minimalist so if this helps, here is what I use when I go out:
After skincare routine:
I use a tinted moisturizor because I have dry skin, without too many flaws, so I only need light/medium coverage. I use bareminerals complexion rescue and I really like it. It doesn't take very much, so despite the cost, I get good mileage out of it plus you can layer it for more coverage.
Then I use glossier's stretch coverage concealer on my dark circles. it's kinda expensive, but it barely takes any to get good coverage so again, good usage out of it.
I use 3 shades of eye shadow: a light light creamy color, a light brown, and a dark brown. I don't like really dramatic looks, so I don't use eyeliner personally, I'll just use the dark brown eye shadow as a kinda eyeliner I guess, the creamy color as all over the eye, and the light brown in the crease/wing.
Finally, I use some mascara.
Basically, I guess my 3 essentials are: a tinted moisturizer, a concealer, a good neutral basic eye shadow set, and some mascara.
Hope that helps!

Can I get any recommendations for dark circles concealer? I've tried loads of liquid concealers, even those brightening ones and none work. It seems that in order to cover the purple/brown (I'm very pale) color I'd have to use the opposite color, right? For a low budget, what would you suggest?

Can you be olive if you're a pasty Anglo?
I honestly have no idea what my undertone is, but I know it's not 'cool'/pink.
I'm a poortherner with NC10-15 skin and ashy dark brown/warm black hair. In photos my skin looks pasty white but irl it can go from yellowish pale to just kind of beige-yellow depending on the lighting. The best example I've found so far for my colouring is the actor Colin Morgan, except my eyes are darker.
Whenever I look at guides online they usually say that the olive undertone is reserved for Mediterraneans, Asians, Eastern Europeans and maybe some Frogs, whilst Brits and the Irish = pink toned, freckly and burn in the sun, which I'm very much not.

So, I have a very strong resentment towards makeup, and I also refuse to spend lots of money on it due to how little I wear it and how much it irritates my skin and eyes.
Should I wear both foundation and BBcream together? I used to do foundation only on necessary spots, then switched to BBcream all over, but I don't feel it gives the coverage I need.
What's a good brow pen or powder that's drugstore price range? I have this Maybelline "master drama" brow pencil and it's shit. Doesn't go on smoothly and is kinda chunky and uneven. I saw something about a Stila felt tip pen that sounds nice but it's way out of my price range.
Anyone who has sensetive eyes or wears contacts, do you have any eye makeup recommendations that don't irritate your eyes? My shadows, liners, and mascaras all burn.
Also I've heard this recommended for dark circles, anyone have personal experience with it?

Thanks for the recommendations, Anon.
The mascara I've been using is Clinique. I've been tight-lining with a Nyx pencil, and most of the eyeshadows I have are Maybelline with one Jane palette. Friends who have done makeup for me use the more expensive, high-quality stuff, but I'm not sure what brands and even that's caused issues.

Has anyone any kind of experience with lash growth boosters and skin/hair/nail supplements?
Do only the high end boosters work or are there any average priced ones that work too?
Do these supplements with b6/b12 or whatever work to keep your nails/skin/healthier or do they contain only a tiny bit of the good stuff?
I've been doing research but we don't have a lot of different brands here in Europe so I'm not sure what to think and am wondering about personal experience. Not to mention in so many videos you can see that in the after part they have curled lashes and wear mascara
The expensive lash boosters work. I tried m2 lashes and revitalash. Liked m2lashes better.
Though the result isn't as impressive as on the picture you posted, especially if your lashes are short to begin with. I used to have very short lashes, now I have normal lashes but not super dark fake looking lashes.
I've yet to find a good contouring palette for fair skin that isn't too orange.
As for highlighters, I like colourpops and they're super cheap.

For eyeliner it depends on the look you're going for. I just use liquid eyeliner though, whether I'm doing a simple line or a wing. If I want to put eyeliner on my lower lid I just use black eyeshadow (carefully).
A blurring or pore-covering primer under foundation will minimize your pores and imperfections under your foundation. MAC is really expensive and there are plenty of other options to try that are cheaper, even in the drug store range, if you can find your shade. If you're trying to find a good foundation just go into an Ulta or Sephora and have them color match you and figure out the best foundation for your skin type and amount of coverage you're looking for.>>46775
I use a beauty blender but I use a water based foundation.

Sometimes, occasionally, an instahoe will slip through the cracks of my psyche and make me feel jealous.
Not anymore tho. I've now seen how ridiculous it is of me to even think it's possible for any of these girls to actually look like this. I'll post before and afters.
For instance, Sahar.

She actually looks like this under makeup, styling, and heavy editing. She hasn't gotten her nose done, just edits it a lot.
As most of you know, a lot of makeup we see is incredibly unrealistic to apply to real life and looks like shit without filters and shoop.
>>54752>instahoes don't look like that in real life
you sound like a robot who just learned what makeup is…
Um, what did you expect them to look like? Everyone knows it's just piles of makeup and that underneath they're average or somewhat pretty.>>54757

She looks nice. Nothing special but nice.
Don't see how this is news.
Is it possible you bought a fake product by accident?
Also I like the urban debay glitter eyeliners but they might be a little too sparkly. Make up forever used to have a shimmery white liquid liner too.
File: 1487115085833.jpg (23.7 KB, 500x500, s-l500.jpg)
Maybe you could try the "Dollish Pearl Eye Liner" by Lioele?
I think it's a tad bit more intense than the Tear Drop Liner, but it looks quite pretty and similar, and i've personally never had any problems of irritation with Lioele products.
Also, like >>55091
said it could be you bought a fake one, or a misproduced one. I've had to throw out stuff that irritated my eyes, only to repurchase it and it working fantastically again with 0 irritation, you could try repurchasing it in a different store or something.
Maybe try using a different smoothing primer on your nose area? (Benefit Primed and Poreless, Illamasqua Hydra Veil etc)
Also your scrubbing may be agitating the skin, and mattifying primers can cling to flaky skin and make them look worse.
I have the same issues, no primer has ever really fixed the issue, drug store or high end.
The only thing that doesn't make me look "crusty" is 1) not using setting powder, at all and 2) avoiding matte foundations. This sucks because I have combination skin and between oiliness and sweat I tend to slough off my foundation within hours. I just have to carry some with me and reapply. Nothing else I can do. But I take that over crusty foundation.

Can someone help me out please?
I've always had problems with my makeup creasing and looking bad under my eyes like in the "before" pic. (I have a lot of wrinkles too)
I moisturize my the area under my eyes, drink 1.5L+ of water daily, go to the gym and have a good diet, blend with a sponge, use minimal powder tried using primer/moisturizer and without but it still ends up looking really really cakey. And applying one coat simply doesn't work because the under eye area is do dark.
Could it be possible that the brand I'm using is just crap?
I've been using mine for about a month and it did help a bit with the tiny wrinkles. The really tiny ones. And it generally looks better.
But other than that I don't think you should expect too much from these creams.

Anyway, the thing is… I've been having breakouts and idk if it's the product (because it's really the only thing I've changed recently) or the fact that I'm dieting and changing old eating habits so my skin is going crazy? I've been trying to hit my macros so I'm having more protein than I'd usually have. Can anyone help/understands anything?

what eyeliner shapes do y'all like?
i usually do a puppy eye, my eyes are a weird shape and cat eye doesn't help them.
Yeah, my undertones are definitely cool toned so "porcelain" shades seem to match best, but EL didn't have any labeled that. I figured something called cool bone would be cool toned but…guess not.
So while I'm at it, foundation reqs for pale people with combination skin? I stay away from matte foundation because it makes me look crusty as hell in my dry spots. If there's something out there with a similar finish to EL Doublewear but with a better range of colors that'd be great. I was thinking of trying Toofaced Born This Way or Fiona Stiles Luminous Foundation Concentrate.
Things that have made me crusty or too orange: IT CC cream, Urban Decay Naked Skin, KVD lock it tattoo foundation.
One foundation I do like is the Tarte rainforest of the sea water foundation, but it's very sheer and doesn't cover my mild rosecea.
Youtube has a few ultra-fair-skinned swatch videos, that range from cool, warm, yellow, sallow, ect ect. The other thing I would say is to use a full cover, but not too much. Concentrate on evening out the discoloration around the center of the face (cheeks, nose, chin, between the brows) and feather it out towards the edges of your face. By the edges it should almost disappear completely into your skin tone. Saves product and looks more natural than having a mask on your face, looks more natural/youthful.
as a fellow ghost i just got the Missha real complete bb cream in 13 and i love the texture so much, it's basically a soothing moisturiser with better coverage than most foundations i've tried. it's very very slightly too pink for me but it's actually more grey than anything.
on the cool side, i was absolutely in love with Bobbi Brown Skin foundation in 00 Alabaster but my skin got too crappy to use it.
would any pale people be interested in swatches of my personal collection? pale foundation varies so much in undertone
i will also add that color correction and paying real close attention to my skincare regime has helped so much, if you start off with the best base you can then even wrong colored foundations don't look so bad.
also not a foundation, but i got the Ultrasun tinted sunscreen in ivory that is what i wear most days. it's the most comfortable face sunblock i've worn and has a tint that is cool but soft, more like neutral-cool.
this is where i found out about the Missha bb cream:https://littleporcelainprincess.blogspot.co.uk/2014/05/sunday-swatches-bb-cream-swatches.html
Try using a BB cream or powder foundation. I use the bare minerals bare pro powder foundation, it works very well with a little product, you can get full coverage with like 2 or three layers of you needed it.
And I use the two faced better than sex mascara because it's damn good, but you can probably find something to do the job at the drugstore
File: 1488513405048.jpg (261.69 KB, 1500x1500, s1574896-main-zoom.jpg)

Give me absolutely the best mascara recommendation you could give. Best if I don't have to pay over 25USD on it and is good for tiny as fuck and flat lashes.
I am absolutely fucking tired of having to wear falsies when going to class or some menial task like that because I am unlucky with mascaras and always buy shit.
Another option is benefit rollerlash. If you buy the sample size they have by the registers it's cheaper and more cost effective than if you bought the fullsize tubes and it's my favourite mascara.
Besides that, the pink maybelline one with the green top, those ones are pretty solid.
ELF makes one that isn't total garbage but i also bought it a few years ago and I noticed when I went to buy an old product I wanted to revisit that they've seemingly changed formulas for some stuff because a lot of it is dookie compared to the old quality :(
I use essence too and would recommend it.
But be careful with it. I usually have something like a allergic reaction then after a week or two after not using it, it goes away.

Do any of you know a foundation for a pale skin with a warm undertone? Which also works with a more or less oily T-Zone? And high coverage?
I have two foundations, one that works perfect with my type of skin (Artdeco Long lasting foundation oil-free) which is sadly too pink-ish for my face and on the other side I have the "Stay Matt but not Flat" one of NYX which shade Ivory is quite perfect for me but the type of this foundation makes me after a few hours shiny af, which is gross and just doesn't work with oily skin.
Everything else I tried is too brown or pink for me welp. I would love to invest in some high end make up since everything drugstore related has been a huge disappointing.
File: 1490039181319.jpg (156.96 KB, 600x600, superstay-1.jpg)
All of them are pale-ish and I think two of them aren't really pink. Covers pretty good and stays on despite oily skin
When it's done in a subtle way it just brings out cheek bones and makes skins look v pretty
But like everything else ppl over do it
In that vein, what is an 'olive' skintone exactly?
Because Siberia, Fit Me 110 and L'Oreal Super Stay, known fair warm shades, are suddenly being recommended by people with 'olive' skintones because 'it compliments my pale olive skin. Btw I'm 1/16th Slavic and 1/200th Cherokee which is why my skin is this way as opposed to, you know, natural variation in skin undertones amongst people of the same ethnicity'.
I don't get it, a year ago there was cool and warm and now it's like there is no 'warm' anymore, every time I ask for a rec I get asked 'r u sure u aren't olive, sweetie?'
Siberia in matte is the only shade that has ever matched me (I guess I'm a warm toned super-pale?) but it emphasizes dryness on my face that I didn't even know I had. I have a good skincare regimen so I'm not a flaky mess but I can't get it to look nice no matter what primer/moisturizer/applicator I use. It completely sucks and the sheer glow is just slightly the wrong tone.
Has anyone got Nars sheer matte to apply well?
Huh. No I haven't tried that, I had a bad experience with a knock-off beautyblender so I haven't really looked back into them.
I suppose I should fork out for a real one and try it out. Thanks for the tip.
I could link you to some but it's probably a better idea to google stuff about finding your undertone. Most people are cool, warm or neutral.
If your foundation looks orange, you're cooler than it, if it looks too purple you're warmer than it.
You might want to go to a makeup store and test some colours on your wrist or ask for advice from a clerk if that's your jam.
