New makeup thread because >>45820 is being locked.

Anyone try the new Fenty foundations and are they suitable for oily skin?

No. 72062

I've been using the Fenty foundation for about 2-3 months now - I'm barely at 15% usage. For how thin the formula is, it has good medium coverage and lasting power, especially with sweat. Starts fading around the 8-9 hour mark on my oily skin. I'd say get a sample from Sephora, if they fill up one of those little plastic tubs for you, that'll last you 1-2 weeks.

Anyone else give certain Korean cosmetics a try only for it to be a waste? Some of the packaging is so pretty, but the product itself can be crap. I had that peach loose face powder pictured in the OP and it not only provided zero coverage, but it made my oily skin even more oily and broke me out. Innisfree's lip colors also sucked balls.

I’m a complete sucker for Korean makeup. I know there are some crappy products out there but there are also incredibly high-quality products in beautiful packaging and drugstore pricing that are light years better than some overpriced western crap (that said, I do love Sephora for the most part).

As someone who loves lip products despite having VA-tier lips (RIP) I’m a huge fan of the PERIPERA lip tints. I love the Etude House Dear Darling Water Gel Tints as well because the colors are absolutely gorgeous and the packaging is pretty, though I feel like there isn’t a lot in the bottle despite its size and it applies rather thinly imo. I have some of the Labiotte wine lipsticks/tints that became all the rage when EXO mentioned them in one of their songs but I have yet to use them a lot. I’ve ordered a bunch of Holika Holika Heartful Melting Cream lipsticks aka pic related because I love deep red/pink berry shades and super creamy formulas. Has anyone else tried any of these?

With PERIPERA it kinda depends on which line you pick - I’m in love with their Peri’s Ink Moist line and being moisturizing they apply very wet/shiny; keep in mind though that they stain after a while so then you’ll need to reapply to keep the shine alive. The original Peri’s Ink tints weren’t as glossy but they were very bright and definitely not matte. The Velvet and Airy Velvet tints are intended as matte but very soft and to fill in the lines of the lip so they look soft and flawless, so definitely not shiny, though I haven’t gotten mine yet so I can’t comment on that. Pic related: the Peri’s Ink Moist tints in all their moisture shining glory.

The Etude House ones were quite sparkly/shiny imo but since they were tints too they eventually just stained the lip and I’d have to reapply for more of that sweet sweet shine lmao. Two of them in particular - Dracula Red and Hot Pepper - had fine hot pink micro glitter in them and were sooooo pretty. Ugh I love them. Those were the ones - especially Dracula Red - I had the most trouble applying evenly, as well as the deepest shade, Vampire Red. All of the shades are absolutely gorgeous and I pray the collection gets to stay. I also got them super cheap on YesStyle for like €3.7 and I’m super happy with them.

I’ll need to wear the Labiotte ones some more before I can be sure put IIRC they’re intended as soft and moisturizing but still pretty matte/subtle so I can’t comment on them just yet.

I’m super excited for the Holika Holika ones! They look amazing and I can’t wait to wear them haha. Apologies for sperging out- though I do stay on topic so I think it should be fine.

No. 72089

Actually not really, I'm poor so I buy korean makeup bc it's cheap, but I read reviews thoroughly before I commit to a purchase.
Ime different brands do different stuff better or worse, but you can absolutely find cheap roadshop HGs depending on what you're looking for. If you're into heavy instagram lips and pigmented shadow looks Korean and high end (Chanel, Lancome etc) brands may not be the place to start looking, but for natural looks some of them are absolutely fantastic.

Innisfree has a ton of nice makeup, most of my HGs are from there:
>eyeshadow primer (now discontinued)
>matte mono shadow #04 brown
>skinny microcara (keep the spoolie when you use it up/it expires and just use it on any other mascara you like)
>no sebum powder/pact
>auto eyebrow pencil in ash brown (one of the few I've found to not be overly warm toned)
>flower lip tint in rose (super MLBB shade if you apply it lightly, I use it to make my top lip a bit fuller and blot with a finger so it looks natural, I also use it as a blusher in a pinch)
>eco fruit tint in orange, a very flattering warm red on my lips
>Ampoule Intense cushion

Other cheapy brand makeup I use:
>It's skin petit pact (great for setting undereye concealer, I keep my innisfree mono shadow, along with some spoolies and tiny brow/fluffy eyeshadow brushes in the bottom compartment, honestly it's worth it just for the tiny compact)
>Etude House eye primer (UDPP dupe with lots and lots of raves on the internet)
>Etude House auto eyebrow pencil (same as Innisfree, really… except I got it for €2,80)
>EH brow mascara (I don't use this anymore, the colours are a bit too warm but it does hold well and a lot of the shades are good for redheads)
>Peripera Airy Ink Velvet in elf light rose (?) or something like that, just a good tint overall though it can look kind of corally bright if you don't have the skintone for it

That's not even going into the cheap as chips creams and other skincare. Honestly as long as you don't buy anything for the packaging alone and stay away from the lowest tier brands like tonymoly (though even those have some good stuff), you can find lots of nice makeup.

The eco flower lip tint is actually what I have and it provides no real color. Its the reddest tube yet it comes out orange, streaky, and comes off super easily. I've found that tinted balms are more my thing. Good to know about the no sebum pact though because I had been worrying about that.

Pls don’t kill me I love too faced lol. Their lip injection extreme is the only thing in the world that helps my dry, peeling lips. I think the only controversial thing is that Estée Lauder bought them and Estée Lauder sells in China, but Jerrod Blandino specifically stated that he would make sure TF continues to be cruelty free. Also, that blush is beautiful if you’re pale and need a light, gentle flush on your face.

I’m honestly so bad about separating my ethics from shopping lol, like for KVD’s Makeup—I hate that she’s uses Christian symbols as names for her makeup shades but at the same time, those are some damn good lipsticks.

Anon, its your money. I don't care what other people spend their cash on and I don't find myself to be morally superior to you either. There are brands that I still purchase, which are controversial, because I realize that nothing is going to change if I alone stop giving them my money. I'm one person. The only thing that stops companies is legislation such as what the EU did with outlawing cosmetics testing on animals, but the battle then quickly shifted to stopping household cleaners from being tested on them as well. Asian beauty is no different. I'm not terribly fond of that kind of pushy, "Don't do this, don't do that" lecturing as its reminiscent of the god awful /r/skincareaddiction.

Like >>72139 said even if they were bought by Estée Lauder, Jerrod Blandino has made it very clear they will not be selling in China unless their laws on animal testing change. A lot of the stuff that’s been posted in this thread so far is K-beauty which we all know is sold in China.

Maybe I’m sperging out too much and reading too much into it but I really, really fail to see what about Too Faced is so horribly problematic compared to literally all other brands that get posted here all the time.

If you want a European brand to doubt, you can doubt Kuckian Cosmetics lmao.

However, if you want an American brand to rely on, I do recommend Kat Von D because she is an angry Vegan so you know her stuff will never be sold in China or tested on animals. However, it contains Carmine (a red color made from a specific of bug crushed up), so if you give a shit about bugs you may not want to try her brand.

No. 72161

you guys itt seem to misunderstand something. items being sold in china, isn't the same as brands selling to china. a lot of makeup sold there is bought by smaller import stores, not sold by brand outlets. those items don't go through any kind of testing requirements at all. much like buying items in local stores or online, most big import companies don't have as much red tape as brands coming in, they just need to slap on a valid translated ingredients list, and most of them don't do that either.

I sometimes go through this. I literally only buy makeup most of the time for the cute packaging and hope for the best that the quality is good lol. I will say, Korean BB creams are a godsend. They seem to blend better on my skin without looky flakey/caked. There is usually a pale enough shade for me unlike USA foundations. Even the lightest shade ends up being too yellow-y or too dark. I didn't like that Etude House Cookie blusher. I got light pink and it looks like white powder. it hardly shows. Atleast the puff is cute. The tony moly cat powder pact is really cheap and very effective. Its like a makeup staple for me. I like it for my T-zone or to mattify a bb cream since Korean cosmetics tend to go for the dewy look.

I tried the Tony moly setting spray but i dont really notice a difference. i just bought it for the cute bottle to look nice on my vanity.

Lip tints are amazing btw. My favorite is the Mickey mouse lip tints from The Face Shop. The bottle is cute and its quite pigmented, that only a tiny bit of product goes a long way, so it lasts a long time.

My faveeeee korean product atm is the cushion foundation compacts. They usually come in adorable compacts, and they're refillable. You can even mix and match foundations while still using the cute af compact. I don't know what it is about those sponge pads that come with it, but they're the only thing that blends makeup in well for me. I've tried everything, from brushes, beauty blenders, sponges, fingers, etc. And my makeup would always look streaky, cakey, or just disappear on the applicator all together. But the cushion sponge thing just blends seamlessly and its supposedly anti-bacterial material. Plus in general, Korean makeup tends to have SPF in it and focus on healing the skin rather than solely coverage (which western brands seem to lack)


ngl I love toofaced the most out of any western makeup brand; mainly for the packaging lol. But I do find the price to be a bit expensive depending on the product and not worth much. I tried the heart blushes, chocolate bon bon palette, natural love palette, coco contour, better than sex mascara, and peach perfect foundation + loose powder.

the eye shadows are okay, but they have alot of shimmery shades, which can be annoying because they're usually sheer or its just too much sparkle that its hard to build different looks with it. The contour kit was crappy for me, since I'm pale. As expected, it looked too bronze for me and it looked as if i had dirt on my face. The little brush it came with was too thick so it wasn't ideal for contouring thinner areas like my nose. The high lights were shimmery but too sheer. The peach perfect foundation really disappointed me. It looks SO orange on me, and I got the lightest shade called Snow. I had this problem with Mac's studio fix foundation as well. I usually mix it with some sun screen to lighten it up. It does dry very velvety and soft though, unlike mac. The loose translucent powder from TF was okay. It was the same result as any drug store loose powder honestly, just cuter packaging and smells good. I also don't know what to try for a primer. I tried the mac prep + prime, and it is terrible. There's so much glitter in it for some reason. Little green and purple glitter dries all over my face, even after putting a layer of BB cream or foundation. I hate it. The Better than Sex mascara was meh. Its expensive imo, and the brush is kind of weird. I think the formula is what makes it nice, but the brush really makes no difference for me.

I wrote a lot sorry. Idk I'm just rambling here about my personal experiences. I like hearing other people's opinions too.

No. 72203

I feel this! Korean bb creams have been superior to the ones I've tried from around here. Mizon snail bb cream is my favorite and etude house cotton fit is another I'm fond of, but its the only bb by etude that I can use because the mineral ones by them are all too dark and so are the compacts.

I've noticed the problem with western foundations/bb creams (which Fenty actually corrected by being so versatile with their shades and NOT arbitrarily shoving undertones into shades) is that they assume everyone has either yellow or pink undertones. Pink is actually the rarest undertone while yellow is the most common, but there are also people who have neutral undertones and this is massively overlooked.

I've wanted to give blush cushions a try!

And honestly, the only products I've enjoyed by Too Faced are that primer of theirs that comes in the white tube and the pressed powder. Their mascara really isn't that great. I prefer physician's formula jumbo lash in the green tube.

Yesss I love Kat. I generally stick to cruelty free brands and just avoid anything that's not vegan, tbh I think most people are the same.

Makeup products cannot be tested on animals by law in Europe. You can guarantee they're cruelty free because testing is illegal. America doesn't have such laws and therefore Americans have to rely on the leaping bunny symbol. The exception is when a product is also sold in China where Chinese law actually requires products to be tested on animals but no decent European cosmetics brand is going to sell in China lol.

So yeah that's where the mentality comes from.

I understand I guess. However I'm French and when hanging on CF makeup and fashion FB groups it's a consensus that we can't trust brands which don't have a label, so it's a bit surprising to me americans would trust euro brands easily.
I found this page which explains it better: https://www.crueltyfreeinternational.org/what-we-do/corporate-partnerships/eu-ban-cosmetics-testing

Those labels cost money but there's also the One voice label which is free and that's why I don't really buy Kiko not being able to pay for at least that label. Not sure if the One voice label exists in other countries though.

Pink is actually the rarest undertone while yellow is the most common, but there are also people who have neutral undertones and this is massively overlooked.
I've actually had surprisingly little trouble finding a shade match despite being a neutral, but that could be because it was during the pale olympics on reddit and there was a lot of information coming out about different light foundations. But yeah, in general the fact that everyone is shoehorned into the three broad categories never made sense to me, especially for something as personal and diverse as skintones. It was also super annoying when people decided that everyone that didn't fit into either category "must be an olive", when I didn\t match the description at all, my undertone is just neutral (leaning very slightly warm) and not olive in the least.
The whole thing also gave birth to a lot of bullshit theories like "if you're a redhead, you're most likely cool toned!" (bullshit, an overwhelming amount of redheads I know including my mother are very clearly warm) or any of the stupid American muh heritage pseudoscience stuff like "I'm olive because I'm Italian".

Then you don't know what animal testing is. You should look up videos on what practises are done on animals. It's unnecessary to create a product and tbh if they have to test in order to prove their product is safe, it's probably full of dodgy shit anyway.

Any makeup tips or product recommendations for white people lips? Lmao. My upper lip disappears into oblivion if I smile with my teeth so I pretty much never smile with my teeth showing .. i know there’s lip liners but I just feel like it looks so obvious if I over line it? I prefer wearing lip gloss mostly. Or just looking for ways to enhance my upper lip without heavy lipstick and injections. Or maybe I’m being unrealistic. Idk.

Medicine and cleaning products shouldn't be tested on animals either. They should be tested on people on death row or something. If you're okay with putting dodgy chemicals near your eyes and mouth just because they've been "tested" over something natural, then there's something seriously wrong.

I use the Kat Von D foundation and concealer. I don't need such full coverage but shes one of the only brands i've found who are vegan, cruelty free and fit my skin perfectly (i'm paper white)
anyway i can never get it to stay on my face it always separates and floats around my face to the point where lightly touching my face it will rub off and get everywhere. I've had the same happen with the NYX foundation so it's not just this one. I use primers, powders, setting spray and it just never sticks. I have combination skin, exfoliate and take good care of my skin. I really don't know what to do to make my makeup look less shit.

I hope someone can help

No. 73051

How much are you using, anon? When I started using her foundation the exact same happened to me and I hated it so much I stopped using it for months. I picked it up again recently and used it over a thin layer of charcoal based moisturiser for oily skin and a layer of Shine killer primer by NYX. then I use the tiniest amount of kvd foundation using a brush from my nose outwards then go over it with a beauty blender. For me this shit needs a brush at first. Then I set it with a shit ton of kvd powder. And I have super oily combo skin.

On another note, anyone have experience with bb creams breaking them out? I have oily skin and finally found a bb cream I love that goes on like a dream and wears great all day. For my whole life since I started wearing makeup, the more I wear the less likely I am to get spots. Like if I go without makeup for a while I'll break out and if I wear it for a few days it stops. And it's not like my skin refreshing itself without the makeup on and "breathing" either ugh it's some dumb shit. But like the bb cream is so fine it really seems to clog my pores and give me almost cysty acne?? I've been putting primer etc under it recently but don't think it's making a difference

My favourites have been Kat von d lock it foundation in porcelain or whatever the lightest shade is, I have to apply it all over with a brush and work it and then beauty blend it so it takes more time than other foundations. The powder from that line is also my favourite I've ever used.
The other I use on a daily basis is NYX stay matte but not flat foundation also in whatever their lightest shade is. I use the hd nyx concealer with it and either nyx hd pressed powder or the kvd powder. The nyx hd loose powder is fucking useless for me.

Idk if you have these brands but flormar does great makeup for pale skin and also catrice does some of my favourite concealer both in nude and colour correcting. Oh and if you're into contouring, the best powder contour I have found for my skin is actually nyx blush in taupe. And I already owned their entire contour palette but this beats that.

Anyone bought a new bottle with the new formula? Is it really that shitty?

I'm thinking of maybe switching up to YSL teing idole 24 h since i'd like to ditch the mixing it seems to run pretty pale (for reference, i'm around the palest shade of Missha (13), maybe a little bit paler than it) and seems quite luminous.
The only thing that is bothering me before purchasing it is that online the YSL 005 and 010 seem to be paler than the 01 and i can't try it in stores since where i live they only carry the tan shades so idk which one to pick up.

nta but western BB/CC cream isn't formulated the same as asian ones. they are usually either more of a sumblock/primer or a full foundation without any of the moisturizing or essences that BB/CC creams usually have. on top of that they generally don't oxidize in the same way so the shade matters. your best bet is to probably try on locally tbh unless some other EU anon pops in…

Some people are not too fond of Avon but I love their Anew Vitale BBcream. It's light and feels sooo soft on skin. Doesn't clog me or cause breakouts. Of course the coverage is minimal but with my red spots it evens out my complexion just fine.

No. 75303

I don't see the problem with using Western brands if you're ok with the ingredients not providing any skincare benefits. Most makeup doesn't. And the SPF in BB creams is not going to provide you with the advertised protection with a normal application - you'd have to literally cake yourself in it to get the advertised SPF rating - so if you've got a solid skincare routine including SPF then there's no reason not to use a western one.

I really like the it cosmetics cc cream myself, but the shade range is unfortunately trash. Great if you fit into it though.

It's such a pain in the ass and I don't know what to do about it? My eyeshadows always look so messy.

I've been using the Urban Decay primer potion as my primer, and have always put some loose powder/light eyeshadow on top of it.

No. 75355

As an ex-professional makeup artist there’s not a lot you can do about it. Your eyelids are constantly creating oil, and hooded eyes suffer the worst (for obvious reasons). One tip I can give is don’t put foundation on your eyelids before the primer/shadow, but do blot your eyelids (tissue is fine but Rizla papers are also good). You can also try using post-shave balm as a primer, rather than specialised primer potions that are silicone-based (and better at filling lines than keeping things in place tbh). You won’t get rid of it for good though, unfortunately.

I’m not telling people to put aftershave on their fucking eyelids you retard. Post-shave balm is a light moisture cream which dries slightly tacky, aftershave is a scented liquid. Blotting papers can be really expensive, Rizlas you can get 5 packs for £1, and they’re practically the same thing. There are quite a few professional MUAs that use these tricks. What the fuck is eye tape going to do, stick the eyeshadow to her eyelid?

Yah don’t listen to me this anon’s got it sorted.

No. 75364

lol this is some spoony shit right here.

do you even know what eye tape is? the makeup won't be able to spread to the rest of her lids if they are taped because the crease increases the surface area and decreases the amount that the lid folds over onto the rest of it. do you even have hooded lids? you're embarrassing yourself.

also you can get a pack of actual blotting paper for $4.

Samefag but I went away and Googled it, pic related. Firstly this is a droopy lid, not a hooded lid, and how would it stop makeup from moving from the inner corner anyway? The issue is clearly the oil production, not the overhanging lid.

No. 75370

File: 1519333295169.jpg (13.41 KB, 480x220, compare_2_large[1].jpg)

no, the issue is that the oil is getting MOVED AROUND MORE BY CONTACT WITH THE LID, it's not just magically floating around up the lid from the oil, if it moves over onto the lid then blinking is definitely going to move it more. i literally use eye tape myself to prevent this from happening. if her eyes are oily the oil isn't going to move upwards, it will just move down and smear.

asians with monolids use these, just because your pic related isn't doesn't mean that's what they're used for. pic related is my point. with the eye tape it creates more exposed eyelid which helps keep the makeup from touching other areas and would definitely keep it from creeping up the eye.

also only a moron would suggest blotting with products made for cigarettes and not eyes, you think those things are safe? kek.

No. 75371

I’m glad it works for you but I really fail to see how her tear duct is touching her upper eyelid and moving her makeup. Not unless she’s creating a rolling wave of oil on her lid. Hence my suggestion to create a tackier surface than she will with a silicone-based primer - the two will just slide on each other, and then her makeup will move no matter where it is on her eye.

They’re sheets of paper with a tiny bit of gum on anon. I’m not suggesting she stuffs them into her tear ducts and lights them. Stop reaching you drama queen.

No. 75374

NTA but don't call yourself a MUA and then suggest people use weird non-makeup shit on their eyes of all places. Rolling papers don't have 'gum' on them either, they're made of cheap porous material.

That anon is clearly saying that yes, the makeup is moving, but why would it move upwards since that's not how gravity works. You sound really defensive when your suggestions are pretty mediocre.

No. 75447

all you need is foundation that matches your skin color (to help even out skin blotches, everyone has that problem), eyeliner (to underline and overline your eyes to make them stand out more, everyone always looks good with eyeliner), mascara (not required, but if you want long eyelashes) and some lipstick or lip gloss.

I would start out with drugstore makeup

I can recommend you maybelline fitme or rewind concealer, then I would buy a brown or black eyeliner pencil (rimmel scandal eyes has a cool waterproof one). Then you might like a basic eyeshadow palette which should be easy to find. Buy a mascara of choice and a few drugstore brushes (like eco tools or real techniques).
That's all you need to start out I think. >>75447 is right, you don't need 2 layers of foundation and alot of contour

What look are you going for? There's no point to give you only generic products.
Do you want to start using makeup on the daily, a heavy look, a very natural, a Scandinavian low maintenance makeup?

If you don't know, I say start with concealer, some powder, mascara, a liquid eyeliner and an eyebrow pen. For cheap but good brushes I'd use Real Techniques and Ecotools. Foundation is not something everyone likes or needs, for example my skin is very even toned and I prefer to just use small amounts of concealer if I have dark under eyes and just powder my whole face instead.

No. 75466

yeah but >>75463 is right, the other anon's advice wasn't any good. You don't underline your eye with an eyeliner if you don't want to look like a trailer trash. Maybe OP anon has a good skin, but if she wants to use foundation, she gotta set it. And mostly everyone looks better with filled in eyebrows, even bushy brows are often uneven or have weird spots that beg for a pencil.
OP, >>75463 gave you solid advice, I recommend the makeup set she chose for you. Master the basics and from there you'll manage yourself. Have fun.

No. 75478


Buy some foundation that matches your skin color and type. Some powder to use with it.

Then you can buy a cheap palette. There are a lot of drugstore options. Mascara, eyeliner, lipsticks, contouring powder, blush. That can be all found on drugstore for relatively cheap price and good quality, if you research good things. Search for Youtube videos on cheap but good stuff. I'd start with foundation and powder because that's the base of your canvas.

However, because my eyelids are pretty much non existent they’re also very oily?? They’re dry also so it’s driving me nuts.

Use eyeshadow right near your lashes and blend outwards in an almost horizontal way before blending upwards towards your brow. Blending outwards gives you a little more visible space to work with because you can move off of your lid in a natural way; you'll be working on outside edge of your eye socket, basically.

Normal rules apply: lighter eyeshadow colours near your inner corner and darker eyeshadow colours near your outer corner.

Mirror what you've done on your top lid beneath your lower eyelashes, but on a smaller scale. This sort of tricks people into thinking they can see the colours on your top lid because they match what they can see beaneath your eye with the glimpses of the top of your eye, is that makes sense.

Pic related is kind of what I mean. In the picture she's used a couple of brown shades but you can do it with whatever shades you have available and it'll have the same effect.

You might need to switch primers just to see if it's the product.

If it's not the product, prep your eyes with a makeup wipe (fragrance and alcohol free) and then apply a moisturising gel meant for oily skin in lieu of a primer. Gel is more mattifying than lotion or cream. Apply the gel all over your eyelid, right up to the brow, and dab a little underneath your eye too.

I've used 100% aloe vera gel on oily lids before and you do have to get used to using it but it is pretty effective.

Any farmers here have lash extensions? I have mild trich that's mostly triggered by wearing mascara as I have the urge to pick it off, which is obviously not good for my lashes. I don't do this when I'm not wearing mascara, and even though I have long and thick natural lashes I hate the idea of doing makeup without mascara or some kind or something like that, it doesn't look right. I've heard conflicting accounts about lash extensions being bad for your lashes, anyone have experience?

No. 76150

I've had lashes once, very convenient if you like natural eye makeup, but if you usually do it heavier, you'll have a problem. That's why I took mine off, I just missed eye makeup. Removing makeup, remover itself, or even oils from eyeliner etc can trigger lashes to fall out quickly, so here's that.
My natural lashes were a bit weaker than usual, but in a month or two they were back to normal. It's hair like any other, it will fall out and grow again, so you don't have to worry too much. I know people who stopped wearing extensions after a year of nonstop refilling them and they're okay. Some even say it's good because you don't put makeup on your lashes and they can regenerate from daily mascara, but I wouldn't go this far.

I wouldn't recommend them for someone with trich because extensions are oddly satisfying to pull out. My friend doesn't pull her natural lashes but when she had extensions, she pulled them all out in like 2 weeks.

For the skin it depends on how good your skin is but you have to create an even base and from the picture it looks like she set her face makeup with powder. If you have even clear skin you could just use a very light coverage foundation and if you have blemished uneven skin maybe a medium coverage and concealer. Her eyebrows seem lightly filled in and brushed upwards. The eyeshadow is a brown shade applied all over the lid but mainly concentrated in the outer corner and slightly extended outwards and she has some of that brown shade on the lower lashline. She has a peachy blush on the apples of her cheeks and a muted pink balmy lipstick.

Honestly, my favorite eyeshadow brushes came from Aliexpress. It was only a few dollars for a pack of five or six and they're so soft and work just as well as any brush I've gotten from Ulta or Sephora.

If you don't want to gamble on brushes from China, Elf has a wide variety of brushes for dirt cheap. I use their angled blush brush every day and I love it. Elf can be hit or miss though… most of my brushes from them are fine, but the metal part of my C brush got loose somehow and now it wiggles around whenever I try to apply eyeshadow, which really annoys me.

Real Techniques is more expensive but great quality too, and their sponges are great if you use those. I've also heard good things about the Wet n Wild brushes but I haven't tried them out myself.

(also the photo is related because this girls eyes are very similar to mine)

Try using Kat Von D's tattoo liner, so far it's the only liner that doesn't smudge for me. When you wear eyeshadow, do you wear a primer? Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion helps my shadows to stay for a long time

i have that too but not quite as severe. i do a really thin line of KVD tattoo liner so it doesn't look like i just have black all over the lid, and put the majority of my eyeshadow on my outer browbone, like most of the examples in pic related. i just do a solid light color on the lid because i've accepted no one's going to see some fancy ombre shit.

so i have this problem lately where my foundation is settling into fine lines in my skin and when i go over with transluscent powder it makes the texture look really scaly and bad.

i exfoliate once a week, i maintain a skin care regime to keep my skin hydrated, i use a mattifying primer by NYX, but it doesn't improve the texture of my skin after applying foundation. I use the NYX total control drop foundation right now.

any recommendations for a foundation or primer that can target this kind of problem?

Maybe try a different foundation brush or application method and a different primer.

i use a beauty blender, i think this is the problem. i'm going to try using a round brush instead. for a year i had a problem with cystic acne from over-exfoliating so there is a bit of scarring on my cheeks, which is where the scaly texture appears the most. i hate it and it sucks, but thankfully my skin has healed a lot since then.

I just got a new bare minerals foundation and as much as I love how it looks on me, it comes off rather easily. I would use a powder but I already have dry skin and this typically gives me the "cake-face" look even when I moisturize and prime my skin. Would a setting or translucent powder still give me the same effect,or should I just avoid touching my face?


No. 79050

with translucent powder less is more, it sounds like light application with a brush instead of a cushion and maybe a setting spray could work for you

Could you please explain to a makeup noob what a mineral powder is and what the pros and cons are over the regular one? I know I could Google it but everything seems to be shilled these days. I'd like to know your personal opinion and as to why you prefer it on your skin.

also, what are some good starter makeup tutorials for really pale skin? I'm going to start applying for job interviews so I want to look decent but without any heavy makeup. I'm sorry for asking too many questions, but makeup seems like rocket science and makeup tutorials on youtube haven't been helpful so far.

I feel you anon. I have oily skin and a propensity to seborrhoiec dermatitis flares.

I use the biore UV milk sunscreen as it dries to a matte finish with a velvety "slip" texture, it's a sunscreen and primer in one. The other thing is to use blotting powder instead of powder for touch-ups - removes oil and doesn't add more product that will inevitably settle into lines. Another trick is using tiny amounts of eyeshadow primer in the areas that foundation sticks to, it's designed to seal powders so holds it quite well.
just make sure you blend it properly

No. 79281

yeah, this problem occurs when i'm blending the foundation and buffing it into the skin. :( it doesn't happen all of the time and is only visible in sun light, but i don't wanna look dry and cakey in any lighting. i tried using a foundation brush by elf today and it didn't give me the result i was looking for, but i'm going to try again tomorrow when my skin is still the slightest bit glossy from the product i use to moisturize. i think my skin might have been just a bit too dry upon application today, and caused the brush to tug at it in a bad way.

No. 79316

Ayrt, I'm back. This is the one I'm using (because the brand has another powder and the package looks very similar but I don't know if it's the same product), it's loose powder. You can put it to set your foundation, or even before (there's the Goss method, video related, apparently putting powder after moisturizer and before foundation helps the makeup set better). Pat and press with the cushion to set the powder into your skin, if you have oily/combo skin it will help you a lot. This Innisfree powder lasts many hours on me, and smells good too!
I also happen to have pale skin, after years of trial and error with many western brands I've recently bought my first Korean foundation to see if it's true that they're "really pale". I have the Missha M magic cushion but I have to try it yet so I'll make an update later if you want. I'd also tell you to avoid Mac foundations, they're expensive and thick as fuck, they even broke me out a lot and I've seen this is a common issue with that brand.
I'm a beginner too with makeup, I'm learning thanks to these youtubers, which are actual extremely skilled makeup artists:
-Wayne Goss (his videos are around 5 minutes and straight to the point, he hates the instagram makeup and prefers more natural looks)
-Charlotte Tilbury (for more complex makeup looks, her looks tend to be more glam but not instahoe-tier either)
-Lisa Eldridge (for basics, she's very good at explaining and her acne coverage video has helped me a lot)
Hope this helps!

Thank you so much for all this info! I've been watching Wayne Goss's videos and I absolutely love his approach to less is more and I wish I had the skills to create that flawless natural look.

I've been collecting notes that might come in handy and the innisfree no sebum has been popping a lot in my research so I already ordered it. I'm looking for a maintainable makeup routine that is really light and easyish to do, and the channels you listed seem to be super helpful. I hope I don't make myself look like a clown after I get started.

I absolutely adore the ELF baked highlighter and it's only three or four dollars! I use the shade Moonlight Pearls and it looks wonderful on my very fair neutral toned skin. They also have a pinker shade and a yellower shade.
It's a really subtle but pretty glow, I hate the super "wet" looking highlighters and I wear a more natural everyday look so the ELF one is perfect. You can build it up for a more dramatic look too.

If you do get it, remember to scrape the top layer off with a knife or something. For whatever reason there's some hard layer on top and if you don't scrape it off the product barely shows up. But once you scratch off that first layer, it's perfect.

No. 79552

Don't worry, practice makes perfect! I'm kind of a noob too, and since I've started watching those videos my application has improved a lot. Now I only put on concealer, cushion BB cream, brow pencil, blush, mascara and tinted lipbalm, but soon I'm gonna work on eyeliner, highlighter, eyeshadow and contouring. It's small steps. Good luck anon <3

Has anyone else had serious skin problems with Kat Von D's makeup? She's the only brand I've tried that actually makes a powder concealer that fits my skin tone and actually provides the coverage I need, but man, I break out whenever I use her stuff! and the packaging is so cheap, both her liquid foundation bottle and her studded lipsticks have fallen apart on me. I wear a cool neutral because although I have yellow undertones I do a goth look so the cool undertones in her face makeup helps me immensely with my full-faced makeup looks. If anyone has any recommendations, or maybe had the same problem and found another brand that had comparable colors but without whatever weird ingredients she uses to make it so…troublesome for the skin, let me know. Im kind of interested in Fenti, since they offer so many diff skin colors.

Have you tried Urban decay at all? From what's I've heard the All Nighter foundation is similar enough tot eh KVD I just don't know if it comes light enough, since Albinos have been known to be able to use Fenty. Try heading into sephora and doing a swatch test of both to see if either make you react at all.

Honestly without knowing what your face looks like it's hard to say. Make up is about emphasizing what you like about your face and hiding imperfections. Figuring out that stuff is sometimes half the battle and you might not really know what you like without experimenting. Like… I can't do a halo eye because my eyes are too close set. It sucks, but my features just don't allow for it and I know this because I tried it once.

What does you daily routine looks like and what product do you use?
I'm broke so I use mostly drugstore makeup.


Nyx Angel veil primer (I think it's just as good as some luxury brand primer)
Bourjois Healthy mix serum (foundation)
Bourjois Healthy mix concealer


I have a very round face and no cheekbones so I don't contour, I only highlight a little, blush gives me enough definition imo.

Nars Orgasm + L'oreal Accord Parfait Blush in pêche.

The balm mary lou manizer. (highlight)


Most days I only wear mascara and a bit of liner on the outer corner of my eyes.

Maybelline total temptation is my absolute favorite mascara, it makes my lashes look super fluffy and long and it smells delicious.

Rimmel Scandaleyes eyeliner in brown or purple.


I have a ton lipsticks and lipliners.

Most days I either wear
Nyx slim lip pencil in the shade ever with Revlon Rosewine
Nyx slim lip pencil in plush red with Revlon love is on or Yves Rocher rouge gourmand.

Lately I've been going completely bare faced or just wearing mascara, concealer under my eyes, eyebrow gel and lip tint over a balm. I feel kind of exposed when I'm wearing a full face. I enjoy the process of putting it on and I do like how it looks on me but I always feel more visible with it on in public and I don't like that.


Primer :Nyx Angel Veil, Benefit Porefessional or a mix of the two on different parts of the face
Color correction: Urban Decay pink color correcter under eyes
Foundation: I've been skipping foundation lately because I'm finally kind of happy with my skin but I like Lancome teint idole or Rimmel Match perfection.
Concealer: Two shades of Urban Decay naked skin, one for under eye highlight and one for spot correcting.
Powder: Set undereyes with Catrice loose powder. Occasionally I'll let it bake, usually I just set it normally. Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder on the rest of the face.

Tools: A dampened regular sized ecotools sponge if I'm doing foundation, a mini one for under my eyes and a real techniques bold metals powder brush


Blush: I have a billion different ones but I reach for Benefit Dandelion most often.
Contour: Nyx Taupe or Catrice Prime and Fine in Ashy Radiance
Highlight: The balm Mary Lou Manizer or something from the original makeup Revolution Highlighter palette. There's a gold in it that works on my relativity pale skin which is nice.

Tools: RT bold metals blush brush, elf blush brush for contour, RT setting brush for highlight


Primer: Catrice prime and fine eyeshadow base
Shadow: I skip eyeshadow a lot because my eyes are a weird shape and getting makeup to look decent on them is a struggle. I do a lot of warm toned smokey eyes or very basic two shadow looks. At the moment I'm using the Makeup Revolution Iconic Division palette (abh subculture dupe) and their 1 Million pallete that I got as a freebie.
Liner: Usually Clio eyeliner pen. I have a bunch of colorful Essence pencil liners I like to play with too. There's a gold one I really love.
Mascara: Essence Lash Princess in the pink tube. Wasn't crazy about the green one. I got a mini Benfit Bad Gal Bang free with a magazine yesterday and I really liked the original so I'm hoping I'll like this one too.
Brow Pencil: Nyx microbrow
Brow highlight: A smidge of WnW brow highlight

I haven't figured fake lashes out yet but they can look really nice when done properly and I have pretty small eyes so I want to learn.

Tools: a mix of RT, wet n wild, elf and ecotools brushes


I think liquid lipstick/ overly lined lips kind of age me so I've been avoiding them lately. I really like lip crayons and tints, or even a regular bullet lipstick applied more like a tint. Currently in roatation are a lancome matte tint, some peripera ink velvets, a clinique chubby stick and a few essence matt matt matt bullets.

Once I'm done I set everything with one of the nyx setting sprays

How matte are you looking for anon? I really like the ABH Liquid Lips with Chapstick Total Hydration balm underneath. Has to be that kind of chapstick though, other balms don't work.

No. 85532

I tend to stick to natural makeup with maybe a wing every once in awhile, and I hate foundation. So my routine looks like:


Loreal Baby Face primer
For eyebrows I use Nyx Micro Brow Pencil in Black.
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Cannelle or Tarte Tape Shape in fair neutral on days that my undereyes are really dark.
Set the concealer with the Tarte setting powder I got in my Ipsy bag recently — I'd love some setting powder recs, ladies! I'm running out of my big one from It Cosmetics and my boyfriend is taking me to Ulta for my birthday this week.
Ulta blush in Princess.
I've been using this highlight I got in Ipsy bag this month but for the life of me I can't remember what it's called — it's a good dupe for Champagne Pop, though.
To contour I use Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer in either Deep or Sunkissed depending on the day or how tan I am.


I have almond-shaped, slightly hooded, dark chocolate brown eyes. Since I like a natural look, I go for:
Urban Decay eyeshadow primer in Eden.
"Raw Sienna" from the Modern Renaissance palette in my crease.
"Golden Ochre" from the same palette all over my lid.
Nyx Epic Ink Liner in black winged out modestly — I can't do thick Lana Del Rey wings with the eye type I've got.
I use Elf's eyelash curler.
Loreal Lash Paradise mascara in black.


Lipstick is one of my favorite parts of makeup. I recently ran out of my all-time favorite everyday lipstick, Lime Crime's Riot. I've been using Wet & Wild's Give Me Mocha in place of it since it's a decent dupe for a quarter the price.
If I want a red lip that day, Sarafine by ABH has been my favorite for years.
I'm not a big fan of lip liner, though I understand why people love and swear by it.

It doesn't have all day staying power but it lasts for quite awhile. Tbh I just really like the feeling of applying lip products so I inherently just do it a lot. But when I don't the chapstick helps the liquid lip from flaking off and keeps the color a lot more even imo

If you google 'Naked 2 Palette looks' you can find a good number of different color combos. The brush that comes with the palette is really only good for packing on color, not dispersing it. It's also really hard to create looks with only one brush. You should get a blending brush.

I don't use primer, I've seen that using concealer instead of a primer of eyeshdaow can do the trick so I've always done that and it works better with concealer than with nothing at all.

i can't recommend any specific beginners ones because i'm not really clear on what you want. if you'd give some more detail on what you're hoping to achieve like, length, fullness, OTT glam looks, i'll definitely help! also let me know where you're located so i can get a good idea of stores in your area, it helps to look at lashes in person because photos can be deceiving.

what i can do is highly recommend getting eyelash tweezers, they make applying the lashes so much easier! also get a good quality glue, never use the glues that come in the pack, they're usually bad and too old to stick well. DUO is pretty good, but i use DUP, which is a japanese brand. no matter what brand you choose get pic related with the little brush rather than the squeeze tube. much easier to use.

Try using an eyeshadow primer, and baking your under eyes with a beautyblender and some loose powder and apply setting spray on top once your mascara has dried.

This is the closest I can come to waterproof eye makeup but it will smudge if your face is oily/sweaty enough unfortunately.

That’s because there isn’t set rules as to what brush is exactly for what job. We’ve all been in a pinch and used something unconventional to get the job done, it’s more just guidelines. A good rule of thumb to go by is if the brush has more densely pack bristles you’d use that to pack things on (eyeshadow, concealer, lip products, etc) where as a brush that has bristles that aren’t as tightly close together (fluffy) you’d use to sweep things on/off (blending eyeshadow, adding cheek color, setting powder, etc)

farmers with eyelash extensions: what eyeliner and mascara do you use on your lashes? I know we should be using water based for both but I want some recs.

the girls who do my lashes tell me not to wear mascara at all but likeee… my eyelash extensions are beautiful but they're not over the top or even super bold (I like it that way, I'm glad they look natural) but sometimes I want a lil extra boost that a layer or 2 of mascara gives. I usually only use it towards the end of my 2 week lash cycle before I go get them filled in

also, is it possible to use falsies on top of your "natural" lashes when you have extensions? or does the adhesive fuck up your extensions? I haven't ever tried it but again sometimes if possible I would like to have that super fake, dramatic look that false lashes give. but if it's going to fuck up my extensions I won't do it

Same here. I do think it can look good on girl's with striking beautiful features like Emilia Clarke or super models. Lately, I've been making my naturally thick brows just a row of hair thinner, and maintaining trimming them, and it does suit my face more. I think it's because my face is small and chubby idk, and I have a small forehead, I suit just slightly thinner and tapered brows. Also plucking a few hairs at the bottom front of your brows can help you look less mean

Just give it time, anon. I used to never wear make up but secretly always wanted to, then I just started with lighter make up and increased the intensity of the looks over time. Today I sometimes even put make up on when I have a day off and don't have to leave the house or only do grocery shopping because I enjoy the process of putting on make up and experimenting so much. I still go outside without makeup but I don't feel awkward or bad anymore when I wear makeup without having a real reason to. View it as a hobby or thing that relaxes you. It works for me.

Recommend me something for my lips that will stain them all day? I hate my natural lip color because they're tan like the rest of my face and wish they could be rosier. I used to wear long lasting lipsticks but they were too thick and matte. Then I moved on to balms, but they always rub off. I also tried those Korean lip-stain things and love the way look, but I hate having to peel it off. I want something I can apply quickly that looks more natural… I'm not broke so I don't mind something in a higher price range, considering I'll wear it every single day.

No. 88387

I tried them all for a month, then narrowed it down to Ipsy.
Birchbox didn't send me a single item I was interested in. They seemed to use it more as a method of advertising what they had in stock for sale at the moment, and that's really not what I wanted. I wanted to try new stuff, not be sent what they had overstock of and advertised at about the better stuff.
Sephora sent me one out of five items I liked, so I kept it for a couple months and it kind of stayed in that range. But then I had a billing issue and couldn't get it fixed despite my best efforts (it wouldn't let me change the address) so I canceled.
Ipsy I had to wait several months for it to start because I refused to post on social media just to get what I'm fucking paying for, but ended up being best IMO. I liked that sometimes they would include things like brushes and regularly sent me skincare stuff like sheet masks, trial sizes of expensive products like Glamglow and Dr Jart, and things like hair heat protection spray.
But after about a year with Ipsy, I realized I had twelve highlighters (which I rarely use), eight tiny aerosol cans of dry shampoo and twelve little bags that I just couldn't bear to throw out.

One month both Sephora and Ipsy sent me the same Oribe dry shampoo.

I'm pale as fuck and I was terrified of bronzer for years because the most common shades in the cheaper brands were too dark on me. Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soliel and Benefit Hoola Lite are both good. Maybelline Fit Me Powder in 310 is a pressed powder for darker skin but is supposed to be a good dupe for the Benefit one.

Don't try to contour with it though. Contour shades should be cool/ashy and bronzer shades should be warm. I know some people do both at once but I've never figured that out and just do one at a time.

I have nasolabial folds, and every couple of months someone on here asks if there’s any sort of product to lift them, only to be met with ‘fillers’ as the across the board answer. But honestly I’m not about to do that to myself and have to rely on those for the rest of my life. So I’ve been trying out some skin care products and I’m coming back to let you guys know what I’ve deemed the holy grail. As reference, my smile lines started out pretty visible even without makeup, and now I can hardly see them in the mornings. I recommend a few things including taking fish oil, eating healthy, using Micellaire water over makeup removers, but mostly, Sunday Riley’s Good Genes. I’ve been doing all of these for only about 3 months and have noticed a severe difference in my nasolabial hell. Sephora offers a sample kit with good genes, so I’ve been buying that rather than pay full price, because I’m a brokefag. I think it mainly works because it’s a low dose of lactic acid. Anyway hope I can help out a depressed anon or two.

because they most likely had them as kids, like most people, but they had all that baby fat to cover it. Not looking like a kid=/= ageing

Are you confusing natural (ie due to bone structure) nasolabial folds in young people with more superficial fine lines? Wrinkles and creases can happen to anyone. There's no skincare product that can honestly get rid of wrinkles, let alone in 3 months. Retinoid and sunscreen are the only thing proven to prevent fine lines and photoageing for the long term if you consistently use them correctly. Other things are 1) capitalism baby 2) seeing the quick and very temporary masking results of moisturizers

Is there a lipstick that will hold? I've been looking into Jeffree Star lipstick, but they are incredibly hard to get to my country. Maybe there's a drug store equivalent?
I'm currently using Nyx Liquid Suede, but while it stays really good on my lips, in waterline it just smudges to hell.

Its very, very natural. If you want a my lashes but better look you will like this. I wear this when I'm not wearing eyeliner, personally I just don't think it looks balanced enough against it. I would opt not to purchase it again where it not the best damn lower lash mascara I have ever used. Mos mascara is way too clumpy and makes my lower lashes look spidery. This is perfect on the lower lashes. For top lashes I wear it when I'm not wearing other eye makeup and on no makeup makeup days.

If you work on a rig I'm guessing you can afford at least some nicer stuff, so I'd go to sephora or ulta and ask them to colour match you with a liquid foundation and a stick concealer(stick will make for very easy application). Get yourself a beauty blender and look up on youtube a tutorial on how to apply foundation with a beauty blender.

If you're feeling fancy ask them to suggest to you a pressed or loose finishing powder, as well as a powder brush. Honestly it just feels nice putting it on.

Some of the other basics you can get in drugstores if you're on a budget. Maybeline makes decent mascara. I personally like wet'n'wild lipstick although a lot of people find it very drying. Revlon lipstick is decent. Just pick a colour you like.

For eyeshadow, again you could get this at a drugstore, just find a palette that has mostly neutral shades for you first one, like a brown spectrum. You can get alright eyeshadow brushes from like elf or nyx.

Those I'd say are your bare bones basics.

Benifit Porefessional primer is kind of universally liked, it works for most people, so it's a good option.

Personally my favourite is the Marc Jacobs coconut primer, it makes my skin look amazing. The most mattefying primer I've ever used was the Becca Ever-Matte primer, it was insane how well it worked and how long it lasted. That one might actually be the one for you if you're really oily. You can also ask staff to try samples, they're always super accommodating.

No. 98010

other anons can help you out with brand names because I just use cheap stuff, but as for routine, curl your eyelashes with an eyelash curler, and brush them out with an eyelash brush before you put on mascara. they'll separate after brushing so the mascara will adhere to more lashes without clumping. also look up a youtube video on how to put on mascara, basically you twist the wand as you're pulling up. this action brushes them out even more. I find that doing these things helps more than a change in product.

A good beginner makeup routine?
I'm absolutely shit at applying mascara and if I do wear foundation it rubs off on my collar and makes me looks all wrinkly. If I put on conceiler it makes my eye makeup run down, eye shadow always looks smudged and I obviously also can't draw a straight line with eyeliner. I think wearing some colour on my lips would make me look so much better, but it never stays on. Do you reapply after every single time you drink? And if I blow my nose everything rubs off as well…

No. 98200

Try a BB cream or tinted moisturizer instead of foundation. Use a sheer powder to set it so it doesn’t rub off on everything. Use a different concealer, maybe powdered, to keep your eye makeup from running. If you don’t like the thought of constantly reapplying lipstick or worrying it’ll smudge, try a tinted lip balm. I like Burt’s Bees.

No. 98218

It could be that the foundation you're using doesn't suit your skin type. With eyeshadow, you only need one or two colors. Not every look has to be especially complicated. Here's a simple tutorial that covers the basics: https://imgur.com/a/67Ru2
>Do you reapply after every single time you drink?
Sometimes. Liquid lipsticks last pretty well compared to bullet lipticks. With bullets, you need to line your lips with a similar colored lipliner, apply the lipstick, blot, add another layer of lipstick and blot again. You also need to use a lipbalm when you don't have makeup on so your lips don't get chapped.

Has anyone tried Sugarpill's glittery lipsticks? Specifically "Trinket"? I've been considering it for months but I'm worried I'd feel the glitter specs and hate it.

Also wondering if anyone has tips to stop your foundation / BB cream from separating around your nose? It happens to me all the time, no matter the primer, setting powder and spray I use. I do have oily-to-normal skin so it could just be my skin type.

No. 100903

For the nose issue, have you tried an eye primer? I always had this problem, but I started leaving my nose out when I did face primer and using an eye primer on the bridge/sides and it works pretty well. You do have to blend your foundation in pretty well, and if you have any dry patches it can catch but give it a try if you haven’t.

No. 100904

I have a similar issue except that my lips have a strange feature on the inner area where I have a few bumps/scars/I don’t even know what (maybe from biting when I was younger) where lipstick just…doesn’t go. To second what other anon said I have had the best luck with Jeffree’s formula, usually I end up doing a specific second layer along the inside there the issue is and giving it a decent amount to dry before closing my lips. The Nyx catsuit formula is the closest thing I’ve found at drugstore level and their shade range is really nice, I would say also try different ways of application (with liner under, letting it dry for a while) before you give up. I always feel stupid because I basically have to blot my inner lips until they are bone dry and apply and hope for the best.

I'm interested in the Fenty Beauty foundation right now because they just dropped new concealers and finish powders to go with it but I'm not sure about whether purchasing a new foundation is a good idea. I was really pale/yellow for a few years because I was permanently sick for a few years, and last year I bought a MAC foundation that sort of matched but it doesn't anymore. I have no idea what to do with it btw because it wasn't the right undertone in the first place but now it's just way too pale for me.

I tanned a lot and very fast in the summer and I got my natural color back, and the "tan" is still there, which I noticed because the Nyx foundation I bought right after I tanned still matches me. I know I can tan a lot more than that and I can keep that tan for at least a whole year, so I'm worried I'll buy a new foundation that will only match me for a few months. I was hesitating between two shades too, I tried both at Sephora and they looked good on me but it was with artificial light and before and after they oxidized, so I've been hesitating a lot. Do you think I should still wait in case my tan could fade a little? Do you guys keep several foundation shades at once for this situation?

By the way, if anyone can recommend me a mascara that doesn't smear all over your eye bags, I'm interested, I'm sick of putting mascara and concealer to hide my eye bags and look even worse because of the mascara mixing with the concealer at the end of the day. I'm using the Nyx worth the hype mascara, what do you think about this one?

All the buffing you have to do with the dense brush made any blemishes and old acne scarring I had extremely red and angry. Once my skin calmed back down though, the makeup looked great.
Just wanted to put that out there I guess.

how do you guys wear lipstick in freezing cold weather? my lips become unbearably crusty and cracked by lunchtime

No. 108247

Ungodly amounts of chapstick. Occasional exfoliation. Creamy lipsticks or tints instead of liquid lipstick that dries.

No. 108313

i read a tip somewhere (maybe in a thread here?) about how putting hyaluronic acid on your lips kind of plumps and hydrates them. my lips are tweaker tier scaly and cracked atm and i put a layer on to see if it worked, and it helped a bit. it might help more if i continue to apply it. you need to apply an occlusive to seal it because the HA draws moisture from the air and will dry your lips out without a layer of something like vaseline on top
also what anon mentioned about more dry lip friendly formulations for your lipstick, i find the giorgio armani lip maestro has a nice creamy formula and takes quite a while to dry down. on the more affordable/kbeauty side of things, peripera's airy velvet (not their velvet line, airy velvet) lip tints give the illusion of smoother lips and don't aggravate my lizard lips, but it doesn't feel truly hydrating either. guessing it has silicone as a key ingredient to smooth out lines
if you don't want to pay sephora prices for a lipstick and lip tints don't appeal to you, look for formulations which are creamier/glossier and take longer to dry down. you'll sacrifice some staying power and it will obviously transfer more but it's better than cracked matte lizard lips, lol

No. 108354

oof, i've been wearing the peripera velvets this whole time and my lips look like the sarlacc pit by the end of the day. gonna try the airy line and your other suggestions, ty!

No. 108387

no problem, the smooth primed effect doesn't last throughout the whole day, but i also got their velvet tints and the airy velvet line has a much preferable drydown imo. it's definitely not hydrating though, i'm guessing they just pumped it full of silicones to make up for how drying their other tints are. you might want to put a hydrating chapstick or some HA underneath to boost the smooth effect so it has a nicer drydown if you intend to wear them all day

I just came in here to say I have finally found my shade in makeup, NW20 from MAC, after wrongly using 'ivory' or 'fair' or 'light' from brands like It Cosmetics. Undertones are no joke and it is finally something I can wear without looking like I'm trying to be a 'pretty fair princess waifu'. If you're struggling, please just go to a MAC store and really try them all on, don't trust the color in the bottle or pan.

No. 108430

I went to MAC and they gave me the lightest shade (as anticipated). It's still way too dark and yellow on me. I just feel mac doesn't have paper pale shades for pinky undertones.

Oh I never let other people try and match me. They're always wrong and go way too dark.

a mac girl once matched me as nc20 when i first started wearing makeup. I don't think they had anything lighter than a 15 out at the time, but from looking at swatches, even nw10 is as close as I'm going to get from them now and it's still too dark. I don't even consider myself that pale.

No. 108468

The palest was too dark for me too, mac is shit. The staff also trying to force it on me said I should get it anyway because it will match when I "get a fake tan!". Um, no lmao. They're so behind other makeup brands at this point. I found my shade at Inglot though.

No. 108472

Happy you’re happy anon, but MAC is truly the worst make up to recommend. I’m pale, and Mac really fucked me up for a while because they can’t shade match for shit (unless you have a yellow undertone - which I don’t) their formula is also really rough on sensitive skin. It also happens to be one of the thickest, cakeiest full coverage foundations you could go for. All that said I’m glad you’re happy with them and found something that works for you. To stay on topic, does anyone have any recs for very fair skin with cool blue undertones? I’ve never been able to find a suitable match.

I am pale but not the palest color (usually) and it was almost impossible for me to find something that has pink undertones and not yellow. If you're still looking I would recommend YSL, Dior, Givenchy, Burberry, and other high end makeup lines. They have very pale shades with a variety of undertones. (YSL swatches in photo)

Fenty foundation is my only shade match. It's also one of the worst foundations I've ever used. I don't even have dry skin but it catches onto each pore and flaw.

Hey anons! Sorry to necro but I need some makeup help.

I'm big on drugstore mascara, I honestly don't think it's worth paying a ton of money for a product that dries out and gets unsanitary so quickly.

Some of my favorites are Covergirl Clump Crusher, Maybelline Rocket Lash (honestly Maybelline mascara in general is pretty reliable), and No7 Extravagant Volume. My sister swears by Loreal Lash Paradise and lots of others rave about it but I've never tried it myself. Essence Lash Princess is also stupid cheap and has lots of good reviews but I also haven't used it so I can't give a personal recommendation but I do plan to buy it when my current mascara runs out!

I have the same hair and eyecolour as you and for a soft dolly look I use peachy or light pink shadows. The Heimish Coral Essay Dailism Palette, Too Faced Sweet Peach, Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes and Urban Decad Naked3 all have pretty peachy colours. For skin I'd just use a bb cream and a concealer or maybe just one of them, depending on your skin and then maybe a bit of setting powder. For lips I'd recommend a lip tint in a peachy/pinkish colour as well, I like Etude Houses because they are buildable and good for a natural look. I ususlly mix it with a bit of chapstick! A peachy or pink blush and mascara and you're good!

Are you sure it's not the way you're removing the mascara?

I generously saturate a cotton pad and let it sit on my eyelid for a while so the micellar water can dissolve my mascara a bit. Then i gently wipe off and repeat the first step (without adding more micellar water) and all my stuff comes off with no eyelash casualties.

Though my mascara is never applied thick either, might wanna also look into how hard you're coating your lashes in the first place.

Had the same problem where I'd lose a lash or two every time I wore mascara…easily fixed by switching from waterproof to regular formulas!

I know the struggle anon.
I use to mix yellow concealer in my foundation or even use it straight on my skin like it WAS foundation (which I currently do with maybelline's instant age rewind in neutralizer because I'm that pale yellow)
What once helped me was going to Sephora at the makeup bar and really gave that lady a run for her money in having her find the shade for me but that did hurt my wallet (and unfortunately I forgot the brand since it was a long time ago)
There's also color adjusting products that you can mix in your foundation like: L.A. Girl's pro.color mixing pigment, elf's mix to match and nyx's pro foundation mixer to name a few.
Regardless, since you asked for foundation, L'Oreal has some new shades that I think are more yellow-undertone friendly, NYX's foundations (like Can't Stop Won't Stop), Covergirl's TruBlend in the L-series that end in "0" (like L10, L30 or L50), or Milani's creamy vanilla.

I expected individual lashes to look natural without applying mascara. Or maybe just a little bit and not a lot?

I guess I should skip lash wear all together except for parties or when I feel like it.

So do you both think makeup looks without mascara is ugly? I have enough lashes and they're curled naturally.

No. 115794

Mascara is pretty vital. Try to find a formula that emphasizes "separation" rather than claiming "volume" or "length". I hate gloppy, thick lashes as well and I've found Covergirl's formulas to be pretty lightweight. I use the "clump crusher" one the most. I like that the wand is curved so it fits the contour of the eye. I focus on my roots and do one coat only. I try to really get in there and comb my lashes through without building up layers of mascara, basically. If there's still clumps you can also use an eyelash comb which is a tiny comb for your lashes. It helps fish out any clumps and separate lashes stuck together etc.

Try to finesse your application technique once you've found a formula that isn't prone to being thick. I've found the way I use my wand matters more than the formula I'm using.

I bought during my break time a bottle of BB (or CC?) cream at dollarstore because it was near. Jesus, it is awesome and I look airbrushed. I'm still wearing it and no lines. Thanks! More I learn. I assume a double layer of that should be applied under eyes as concealer? I did that.
It doesn't look disgusting, but also not pretty. I like a soft look on lashes. We can have soft brows but not lashes? Moment someone invents this I will live rent free in your head. By the way, reason why I asked for pictures is because I'm an extremely busy woman.
badum tss
With 2 jobs and difficult as fuck (not necessarily impossible otherwise it wouldn't be available as a course succesfully but A LOT of things should be done) I don't think I have enough time to fuck around with lashes 30 minutes. In fact I've never worn makeup aside from fruity lipgloss.

unless it is color adapting it's probably the wrong colour for you.

You need to spend longer learning what humble means.

I would buy a ton of different light falsies from sellers on eBay or wherever, so it's cheap and try them out. There are plenty of soft light styles available. You can also cut the lashes into small strips and apply them individually from center to outer edge, which avoids the obvious false lash look.

Dropping in to say that this shit is a godsend. I was using Maybelline's Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser before, and while it was cheap and did smooth out my skin, it left me oily-looking (even as someone with drier skin) with foundation that didn't stay on super well.

I finally got a sample of the Hydrogrip Primer, and it hydrates my skin and gives me a REALLY nice dewy look, plus my makeup finally stays on. Definitely will be repurchasing the full size eventually.

Well, similar things happen for the jewelry we wear, the spices we import, the clothes we buy, the plastic we don't think about throwing away. It's all at a cost and the cost is human life as well as pollution.

There are ways to go as humane/eco-friendly as possible but it's an uphill battle and you'll most likely have people trying to WHAT ABOUT you and try to call you a hypocrite bc you aren't a perfect 100% sustainable saint. If some of the shit industries are ones you can opt out of (or at least limit your support for) then it's worthwhile to do so. Your power as an individual is to impact whatever small sphere you can, and change a few minds. If you end up wanting to rethink some of your spending, don't let others try to bash you for not being able to make every "right" choice about it. And don't let them tell you it's futile. Your personal responsibility is to be true to what you think is right and to make that small change.

Hello I need advice.

I'm tempted to buy lipsticks but my mouth looks pretty fucked up thanks to my messed up teeth, my teeth are aligned just horribly and I have a very bad overbite and can't close my mouth anymore, one side of my mouth is also hanging down, I feel like a crack bunny who suffered from a stroke. Is it a bad idea to wear lipstick? Like does it draw too much attention to my mouth or does it not matter that much? I can't help but really want all those pretty lipsticks I keep seeing online..

No. 116299

Honestly I say fuck it and wear whatever lipstick you want, life's too short not to enjoy putting pretty colors on your face. I doubt your mouth is even as fucked up as you describe it. If all you see online is perfect full symmetrical lips and pearly white straight teeth it's easy to feel insecure but if you pay attention to the normal women around you in your everyday life I bet a lot of them who wear lipstick don't have perfect mouths/teeth/lips. Be your best self anon, buy all the pretty lipsticks and wear them with no shame!

I have a huge overbite and ridiculously big front teeth to the point that if I don't consciously force my mouth closed, it's always slightly open and I've struggled with wearing lipstick most of my life. Like the anon who replied to you, I'd just say fuck it and do whatever you want.
Like, my favourite lipstick is black, it's still considered extremely edgy where I live, but idgaf.
My only issue is that I have to check for lipstick on my teeth more often than people with not-fucked-up teeth.
I know I probably don't look good to others and when I think about it, I know that I am far far far away from perfect, but I enjoy lipstick, why the hell should I abstain from it unless I fix my teeth?

No. 116307

girrrrl wear that lipstick! it will give you a little confidence boost and make you feel girly. And in terms of if it draws attention to your mouth, there's two ways to look at it, you could also just me making your mouth more attractive or vibrant and eye-catching, so like, you're making it look better! Try to find lipsticks that suit your skin tone, eg. cool vs. warm, and play around with a few different colours because lipstick can suit what mood you felt that day. Like, mauvey nude, peachy pink, red, purple, brownish nude, baby pink etc.

No. 116309

Do it, anon. If you want to slowly progress to darker or more bold colours, put lip balm on first and then put the lipstick on top. It will give you a more sheer, glossy coat. I'm personally not at the level where I feel comfortable wearing matte blue lipgloss yet lol but I feel really cute when I apply lipstick like that.

After getting recommended korean makeup and skin care for ages already, I finally ordered some.
I've got the clio kill cover cushion foundation (which only has positive reviews) and the eglips blur powder pact and within 2 hours I looked like a greasy mess. The lightest shade is also still too dark and reddish for me (which is weird, because korean makeup…?). I bought it because I thought that the application with the cushion will be easier and faster, but it wasn't. I also had to use a lot of powder, because it simply wouldn't Show at all. Ended up looking nearly a bit cakey.
If I buy some euro product for like 3-5 bucks I get better results.

Slight ot, because it's skin care, but I don't want to make two separate posts: I also tried a korean retinoid cream (elizavecca), which broke me out like hell and the corsx sun cream (which several people told me about) feels like it'll be empty super fast because it doesn't spread well, so you really need to use a generous amount. And it's just as greasy or typically sunscreen-ish as the ones I've had before.

Feels like a joke. Are people only memeing about muh superior korean products? I've never spent so much money on anything beauty related and got only disappointment in return.

I have tooth overjet that gives me a kinda not-so-nice, asymmetrical mouth as well (not to a severe extent but to the point where I wouldn't want to draw attention to it either), and I've found that lip glosses make me look cuter without highlighting my mouth too much.

Sorry I don't have much advice but I'm going to piggyback off your comment since I have a similar issue.

I can't wear red lipstick because my teeth aren't white enough. They're not stained or anything, but they look worse with red. Any ideas for either whitening them or a lipstick colour that will make them look whiter? Or at least not worse?

Actually going off on another tangent here… there's not a thread about teeth that I saw, but I'm considering getting braces. My teeth aren't jacked up but people who've had braces have utterly perfect teeth and I'm jealous. Anyone have experience with braces as an adult?

Do any straight-lashed anons have any suggestions of eyelash curlers that are good for lift and curling?

I have a crappy one (in the pic) that lifts my lashes that I bought years ago. My lashes stick straight up though after the little indent where my lash curler pressed up on, so it’s like they bend from the root and stick straight up. It looks kind of jarring, does anyone have suggestions on how to get a more “curled” look?

I also would love any mascara suggestions (preferably cheap)! I’m currently using Maybelline Lash Sensational waterproof.

No. 117579

I have a cheap drugstore pair and they work just fine. I imagine there's not a big different between a cheap curler and a super expensive one, they all work the same way don't they? If you find your lashes making right angles maybe you're pressing too hard, and if you've had trouble making the curl stay (like me) try gently warming up the curler with a hairdryer. Obviously don't get it too hot or you'll burn yourself.

No. 117582


Either Shiseido or Shu Uemura. I’ve had both and they are amazingly good curlers. I have super straight eyelashes and curl them everyday before mascara. Be sure to also use waterproof mascara that have a formula that is dryer than the water based ones (which means it won’t weight your lashes down). I personally love The Rocket waterproof from Maybelline.

I use tarte's eyelash curlers and they're really good. I get compliments on my eyes all the time.

I know everyone says that's bad but if your lashes are thick and long, it's totally fine.

Good makeup brushes for a beginner? I currently use pic related and it’s horrible. It can’t blend at all and I end up looking like a child playing with her mother’s makeup.

No. 118132

In my experience the makeup applicator doesn't really matter as much as everyone says. I have really expensive brushes and really cheap brushes and the main difference is that the expensive ones get everything done faster, more precisely, but not better. It also really depends on the quality of your makeup, your skill level and the style.
When I'm going for natural I actually find that sheer foundation goes on best with fingertips, light-pigmented eyeshadow looks great patted on with fingers too. Heavier foundation goes on better with a brush (I use urban decay's optical blurring brush, highly recommended) but you can still get away with fingertips, especially if it's buildable and you have a good concealer.

Best advice I can give a newbie with blending is to make sure you're starting light and building. Bad eyeshadow blending usually always starts with putting on too much pigment initially and finding it hard to blend out in a smooth gradient. Bad foundation blending is often a case of either a bad color match, bad technique or bad formula for your skin.

Once you're more confident with your skills I'd advise buying individual brushes for the purposes you need them for, sets often come with things you'll probably never use.
I recommend two eyeshadow brushes (one for warm colors, one for cool), one angled eyeliner brush for applying powder at the lash line and filling in eyebrows, a fan brush for getting rid of excess powder (does NOT need to be expensive), a good foundation brush, and a crease brush (optional imo but useful).

how do you keep your lips smooth and free from dead skin so lipstick looks better? do you use specialist scrubs or homemade ones? I can never wear anything on my lips because it just highlights all the dead skin, whenever I try to remove it, it can make my lips bleed. any ideas?

No. 126761

I have that problem, but I have some kind of chronic dehydration or something. Mixing a bit of lanolin in with my moisturizer is the only thing that really helps.

I also just got back from a trip to the desert where my hair/skin felt and looked amazing somehow, but now that I'm back in my humid southern home state I'm once again dealing with lips like your pic. It's like all the moisture in the air is coaxing all the moisture out of my body. I'm fuckin dyin over here, I can't afford all this gatorade and sheep oil forever!!!

My lips are smoothed out and I mostly don't have this problem anymore. I have to exfoliate twice a week including my lips. I use the gudetama peeling skin one. For lip balm Eco Lips in mint or blood orange applied morning and night. If not that then Sugar's advanced therapy lip balm still x2 a day. I make sure to put a 90% aloe gel in my routine which oddly seems to plump them a bit. Not sure what skin type you have but mine's dry in a dry climate. Usually don't wear matte lipstick either so I opt for a tinted balm or gloss. Hope this helps in some way anon!

Wear chapstic always. I need to have a thin layer of either chapstic or lipstick at all times otherwise my lips become like this. I need to reapply chapstick several times a day and i go through them really fast.
Try to find one with hialuronic acid, the best one i've tried so far is pic related.

No. 126807

What works for me is leaving Aquaphor on it at night and reapplying in the morning after washing my face. Sometimes I apply light lipstick over it, or sometimes I dab it off veery lightly then apply lipstick. Looks great.

Try that first, and if the dead skin still shows too much, you may need to exfoliate with a lip scrub and see.

I have kind of a stupid question but is it normal to be really sensitive to makeup and is it possible to like, build a tolerance or become more comfortable with it? I want to wear makeup but it makes my eyes so dry and irritated. I've tried all kinds of eyeshadows, liners and mascaras. High end,low end, and in between. I've tried different formulas that are supposed to be less flaky or have no fallout or whatever and it seems like they all just make me want to die. I just want 1 good eyeliner and mascara and maybe a couple of shadows that won't make me feel like I'm on Mars without a space helmet

No. Makeup allergies are pretty common, unfortunately. I have the same issue. Try switching to smaller natural makeup brands (Etsy), or making your own. Natural makeup tends to be kind of shittier and doesn't last as long, but it's better living with an allergic reaction all-day.

If you're really pasty you might be able to get away with using mineral sunscreen as a 'tinted' moisterized to cover redness and blemishes.

Tips on how to look younger/cuter (without going full blown weeb a la Venus)?

I always feel like makeup makes me look worse. I know that part of the reason why is because I'm not used to wear (much), but I've also been told by others that it looks weird or doesn't suit me.
Of course it makes me look prettier, but also super mature and sort of like an emotionless mask, no matter what I try. My skin always ends up insanely greasy and crusty at the same time, like it settles in any tiny wrinkle I might have. I already tried so many different foundations, and eye looks, but nothing works. Without makeup I might be ugly but I at least look somewhat young and friendly. I'm so jealous of the girls who can just put on a bit of mascara and concealer and still look cute.
And when you try and search "cute makeup" on yt you only get full on baddie looks or makeup so minimal that only supermodels can get away with it.

No. 129882

I'm not a big fan of makeup because I do think it makes me look older/worse if it's too heavy, so I just stick to
>dewy, light foundation
>pink blush on the apples of my cheeks instead of under my cheekbones
>no eye makeup or just a tiny bit of mascara
>lip tint instead of lipstick

No. 129884

That's pretty much what I do as well (foundation, powder, pink blush, mascara, sometimes gloss), but I still look messy.
And when I go for a more extreme look, then my eyes look like a 13 year olds in 2007, while darker lips unironically make me look trannyish.

I'd recommend using a primer as well, most days I just wear it on its own with some concealer and maybe light bronzer. I'm using Porefessional by Benefit and it has been great so far.

I treated myself to Heroine Make Volume and Curl, it’s the second mascara I’ve ever tried after Rimmel’s waterproof in the blue tube and I don’t think I need another brand ever again, it’s honestly perfect. My only complaint is that it’s difficult to take off and I always lose a few eyelashes in the process but I could always rub my eyes with less force. It doesn’t do the flaky thing or smudge after 9 hours of wear and still holds my curl, the only time it smeared was when I fell asleep after a long day so that was about 15+ hours of being on my face while I tend to get oily/my eyes water in my sleep. My lashes are too straight and downturned for their length to show but when I apply this it’s like pop. And I like the brush more than the Rimmel one, it’s easier to get in there and swipe, with Rimmel’s I constantly poked myself and found the bristles too dense to ensure I was getting enough product on each lash. Definitely lives up to the name, I only need one layer of it, probably best for people with sparser or thinner lashes.

Youtube and lots of practice is sadly the only way. It's also really sad how many makeup gurus try to make makeup video for hooded eyes while they don't really have them.

No. 130770

sounds like you are heavy-handed and maybe your skin isn't moisturized enough.

No. 130788

draw the wing only, with you eyes open, looking forward. this might need to start higher up than the actual corner of your eye, so the end result isn't droopy.

line your upper water-line, using pencil, gel or shadow. put the pigment in and slightly under your upper lash line, same as tightlining your bottom water-line. it should look more like your eyelashes are thicker, instead of a very graphic line.

then connect the line to the wing, making sure to not go too far down with the line at the outer corners. try changing where the line and wing meets your lashline, think uplifting instead of just extending.

this also helps prevent the liner from transferring to your lid.

No. 130907

How do people make liquid foundation go on smoothly? I feel like I have to learn even though I like bare skin because there's a huge dark mark on my face that won't go away and it wrecks my esteem. If I put too much on it goes cakey, if I try doing it sparingly I don't get enough coverage to match the mark to my real skin tone. Right now I'm using Rimmel's Hide The Blemish because it's the easiest to apply and doesn't oxidize into orange but at the end of the day it always goes a bit patchy (I think its from my skin oils?)

I struggled with this for years. The secret is finding a foundation that fits your skin type, and also caring for your skin FIRST. Even the best foundation in the world can’t mask badly taken care of skin. And use much less foundation than you think you need. Women think they need 10 pumps of foundation thanks to watching drag-esque beauty gurus who hide behind filters and beauty lights. Chemically exfoliate regularly, moisturize your skin, and give it what it needs.

No. 130988

Oh don't worry about that, I already have a small routine going since I tried treating the mark like it was hyperpigmentation. It didn't work but I found it made the filaments on my nose go away and stay clearer more easily which got me into skincare. But again, if I use less foundation I get less coverage on a mark that's 3-4 shades darker than the rest of me and no matter what it looks a little powdery then goes transparent in patches by the end of the day.

I'm not very experienced with makeup so if a person wears concealer/foundation, no matter how good they are, will it always look like they've got something on? Most women around me see either clearly have a full face made up or nothing (and not a 'no makeup look') so it's hard to tell.

No. 130995

It depends. if you're looking for extremely high coverage to cover your dark mark, then it might be hard to get 100 percent skin-like coverage. It also really depends how up close you're looking, up close looking in a mirror you will always be able to see your makeup. But from a normal human distance, most people will not notice your makeup unless it's far too cakey. Have you tried the dermacol foundation to use as a concealer? I used it when I had extremely bad cystic acne and it's the highest coverage stuff I've ever used, even more than concealer. I think I remember reading it's over 40 percent pigment. But I saw you were concerned about oxidation, it does oxidize so I would mix mine with white mixer from LA girl. But basically my point is if you're trying to build up a badly formulated concealer with low coverage, it will inevitably look cakey and wack. If you do end up deciding to try the dermacol, make sure you buy it from their official website, there are fakes of it.

I have tried putting eyeshadow on the bottom outer corners of my eyes and connecting/blending it to the top lid for a ~Smokey affect~ , it always ends up making my eyes look super droopy.

Use a drop of matte liquid concealer on the lids before you apply liner, and buff a bit of powder shadow on top!

Or you might like gel liners, it's softer looking than a liquid but stays a bit longer than pencil.

No. 132979

It's all about the density of the foam. The official ones are super soft, where some generic knockoffs are harder and feel more like you're smacking yourself in the face with a kitchen sponge. The orange Real Techniques one is really popular, but it's all personal preference. See if you can get your hands on an official one just to feel, then pick another brand whose texture you like.

Hi anon, I'm kinda similar except I'm extremely pale and neutral. Funny enough I find the palest foundation to always run pink. Also, I looked up swatches of the color cloud and it seems very neutral to me? Are you sure you have pink undertones? For a long time, I thought I did too because of redness in my skin, but in reality, my actual skin itself is very neutral. What is your skin type? I can give you suggestions if you want, I'm also a budget shopper for pale foundations and have tried dozens of kinds.

Hi! I thought the same about Cloud on other people (too yellow/beige) but when I tried it, it worked well and looked pretty good.

No. 133192

(im the anon you're replying to) I also have really dry and dehydrated skin so I can hopefully give some good recommendations! Now I saw you said you're in the UK so I'm not sure if you'll have all the things I recommend, hopefully you could. One mistake I made when I first started getting into foundation is not paying attention to what kind of foundation it is. If you have dry skin, you're gonna want to avoid "matte" or "satin" foundations, or anything that claims to reduce oil. Those always turned into a chalky cakey mess on me. Find things with "dewy" or "natural" finishes, and is marketed for dry or normal skin types. I also find that liquid foundations are a lot more prone to look bad on me, but ones that are creamy textured in a moisturizing way are a lot better. Stick foundations/bb creams/ cushion foundations are great for dry skin, but usually hard to find in pale shades. also, stop using full coverage foundations if you don't need them! Most people generally don't need them, and lighter coverage blends much easier and is often less cakey and drying.

Now as far as actual recommendations, here are some of my personal favorites for dry pale skin.
1. Makeup revolution cover fast base stick foundation
(affordable, decent pale shade range, blend with fingers to make it melt into your skin)
2. CYO lifeproof foundation
3. Makeup revolution conceal and hydrate foundation
4. wetnwild cushion foundation (I have to drop a white shade mixer into this to shade match)

I almost forgot, my final tip is to buy shade mixers! LA girl makes a pure white foundation color, which you can mix into foundations that are too dark and make it your color. If you need to make a foundation more pink (you said that is your undertone) you would buy the orange shade mixer. You only need a teeeeeny tiny drop usually, I use the blue foundation mixer since most foundations are way too pink on my neutral skin, and I use less than half of a pea size amount per day. And most of all, moisturize your skin first, then let it sink in for about 15 mins, then apply foundation. Moisturized skin is the first step to a good foundation application.

My skin is fairly even and smooth but I want to get good at using something light to look a bit nicer for special occasions. I can't stand the feeling of layers of makeup covering my face so I am hoping just a single pressed powder product could do the trick. Just swabbing a big foundation brush across my face and go, y'know?

Do you experienced ladies think that is possible for me? My skin is between regular and dry, but my forehead can get oily at times. My cheeks have more colour to them than the rest of my face. I am a pasty ghost with a blue(?) undertone.

My theory is that a nice sheer layer of pressed powder foundation would look natural and well put together. Makeup is expensive in my country so I'd like to gather advice before buying products I might not like in the end…

No. 134265

Try getting a moisturizer to apply just before you put the pressed powder on so it has something to adhere to, Anon

ty for the beauty blender replies. I decided to go for an official one (got one for £5! brand new from ebay) and anon was right, it's super soft and makes the application very easy. not like any sponge I'd used in the past. I had used the real techniques one before but this beauty blender is definitely my fav of the 2

Every foundation I try look too orange or pink and looks horrible. I tried an olive shade but it was too dark either way and I think it was too yellow/green for me too. I feel like my skin is pretty colorless and like grey or some shit but the only foundation shades like that are the very pale ones but they look way too light on me and make me look literally white
Wtf is my skin tone and correct shade of foundation I'm so frustrated

Does anyone have any recommendations for concealers that are very creamy in texture (like ideally not in a tube/liquid) and lightweight?

No. 136611

idk anon, I'm no makeup expert because I also hate how it feels, but I'd much rather a thin layer of dewy foundation than pressed powder, especially if there's dryness anywhere. Liquid foundation won't feel much different to moisturizer or sunscreen if it's minimal, but powder is always going to feel makeup-y. BB cream is a common choice for light coverage.

Any farmers that have lash perms/tinting or eyelash extensions?

I've heard that some pretty sketchy stuff can happen if you don't go to right places for eyelash extensions. The results however are so beautiful and I just want to see how they would change my face.

Lash perms and tinting are a viable alternative as well but I just want to know how other people may have made the decision between the two.

No. 137259

I do lash tinting at home with Refectocil. Easily lasts 3 weeks and it's super easy and affordable to do. You only need a tube of dye and cream oxidant (don't get the liquid, since you don't want it to drip in your eyes) and an old, clean mascara brush. It costs like 12 euro and lasts many applications.

100% not worth getting profesionally done.

Neutral is always too pink or orange for me.

I now think I'm a very light green olive. So far I have 2 shades that don't look too horrible, but one is too pink and the other one might be just slightly too yellow and it also looks a bit too light but anything darker is too yellow/orange/pink on me. Which one do I go for?

No. 137621

What happens if you mix the shades? Also might be worth finding a good undertone match even if it is too dark or light and using a foundation mixer (Nyx has one in light, dark and olive, as probably a lot of other makeup brands do).

Thanks anons! I think i'm either gonna go for the Glossier one >>138180 mentioned, or Erborian CC cream. Reason being my skin tone changes a lot depending on the sun, and I can never tell what shade or undertone I am. At least the CC matches any tone.

My biggest worry is it'll fuck my skin up over time. I love how soft and clear my skin is, and anything that covers it like foundation makes it look dull and spotty.

Girls I've been looking for an eyeshadow palette that could help me achieve that "soft beige" makeup look, ie the picture linked.

Do you know any suggestion on the occidental market (esp. Europe)? I'm eyeing on Tartelette in Bloom with it's lighter shades.

On the kbeauty side there's on my wishlist :
- 3CE Smoother
- Peach C Soft Brown

Update to this - so I was using the Pixi eyeliners and they made my eyeballs feel like they're on fire. I ordered Marc Jacobs Highliners and they work great, my eyes feel fine with them.

Since I was in school to now (20s) my eyes have slowly progressed from just hooded to their final form, fully hooded. So a meaty upper eyelid, fold starts right in the inner corner and the outer corner is slightly overhanging. Jennifer Lawrence would be a close example. This is driving me insane. Most "hooded eyes" tutorials have some eyelid space. Or some space in the outer corner. I seem to have none. What the hell do I do now? Do I ditch attempts of cat eye and bright/colorful eyeshadow? Do I progress directly into monolid makeup tutorial? Pls send help.

No. 139126

The most annoying and hilarious technique I saw for hooded eyes is where you line your eye normally then move onto the hooded area, leaving a gap which is visible when you blink.

What I do is line them normally then apply some shadow on the hood so it still has an upturned effect but I don't have to swoop the eyeliner up so much where it looks disgusting when I close my eyes

I haven't worn makeup really at all during quarantine and my skin has improved tenfold. The few times I have in the past few months I could feel how weirdly textured my skin felt the next day and I want to avoid that from now on. I used to wear full coverage because of my acne but since everything has evened out quite a bit I don't need it anymore. I know this might be kind of a tall order but I'm looking for some indie brands, that are cruelty free, with really lightweight foundations with sheer coverage and aren't too harsh on the skin. Like a BB Cream or Skin Tint, just super sheer and light. With everything that's been going on I would rather give my money to smaller companies. I follow a lot of indie brands already but a lot of them don't seem to have any face products.

Oooookay get ready for the run down.
I'm super ashy blonde with fair, cool toned skin, and I know how fucking annoying it is to find the right color for brows. These are my best shots at not looking like Groucho Marx with too-dark brows, or ridiculous with red undertoned colors. I just go with my natural brows these days as I realized my futures are too soft and light to pull off anything heavy. (Same with winged eyeliner- I only just realized to use a light, light grey pencil instead of liquid of any color, YMMV tho.)

The eyebrow tint is my favorite as it still allows for a natural, not-drawn-on-blocky look. Mac Omega is really good neutral/cool toned/ashy color, if you're wanting to try powder in your brows. It's a good contour shade too if you are cool toned & fair skinned, apparently. I tried out the Benefit pencil in Cool Grey with a VERY light hand mostly on the outer 3/4 or so of my brows and it looks good in the sun but I found that once the lighting is darker, it looks more harsh– so be aware of that. It would probably also work well to tone down the browns/reds of a different blonde pencil if you lightly layer it. They also make a cool blonde color (pictured) but I felt it was too orange. The e.l.f. pencil is pretty good tbh but it didn't suit me as I felt it was also too yellow but for $2 you might as well try it out. (I'm also a big fan of returning products that don't suit me– fuck wasting money on this shit journey lel) Finally, the Covergirl Perfect Blend in Neutral Charcoal (#105) is something I just got today for the aforementioned light winged eyeliner look. Not for brows but it's really good if you struggle with winged liner closing your eyes off visually.
I hope this helps anon, I know how frustrating it is to find the right blonde color.

Most of the retailers caught selling stuff in sweat shops didn't know because the foreign companies they contracted were the ones who outsourced the labor without telling them.

I swear by magnetics, although I just use some cheaper ones from Amazon. My only complaint about those is that the magnets are on the thick side and require a thick liner to match.

If you like it in a single package:

- Colourpop supershock shadows are amazing, smooth and perfect for a one colour look. [These can dry out but you can fix with cosmetic oil]
- Kiko Milano water eyeshadow, smooth, beautiful and highly-pigmented.
Other good brands for these: Urban Decay, MAC, laura mercier (carviar stick shadow) and stila (stick liquid shadow).

If you would like to build your own palette (You just need to buy a magnetic palette and fill with "single shadows").
All really good quality:
- Anastasia Beverly Hills
- Colourpop
- Nabla (these are a diff size at 30mm)
- Sydney Grace
- Coloured Raine (hit or miss tho)
- Sugarpill (these are quite large not sure exact size)
These are usually 26mm size btw.

I've not tried but heard good things about:
- Coastal Scents hot pots (hit or miss), Leathal Cosmetics, Looxi, Clionadh Cosmetics, JD glow

If you type "temptalia" along with something you're interested into google, it might help as she runs a famous and informative website.

I have two glossier cloud paints in "puff" and "dusk" they are really easy to blend and add a pretty flush to my cheeks. It is easy to over do though, but also easy to remove if you have. It also looks good when you're having a bad skin day, I find it more flattering than powder blush.

Nope, not at the minute. There will be 1 more restock, the date is currently unannounced. Go on the item you want and click "email me" for a in stock notification. It is best to check on their social media for a release date though, so you know when to be ready. The collection sells out fast (like in a few minutes) so my advice is to pre-fill out your details.

Colourpop's only other official stockist is Ulta which I doubt will ever be restocking. There is also resellers (ebay or depop) but I wouldn't recommend bc they sell for waaaay too high.

What's a decent vegan pencil eyeliner (preferably self-sharpening) that comes in brown and isn't a million dollars?

Thanks anon, this is super helpful! I'll definitely go through this list and see what's available here and do some swatching at the store.

I think I'm going to get the cloudpaint in puff

So anons I’d appreciate some help/tips with adding definition or whatever to my face. Basically I have no idea how to do my face makeup beyond basic concealer, foundation, and setting powder. Been too scared to use blush for fear of overdoing it but want to learn to add color to my face. Not really interested in adding contour or bronzer but I’m not super opposed either I guess

Can you guys recommend a nice green concealer?

No. 144388

I need help. I have a quite pinkish face, especially compared to my body, not rosacea but just softly rosey. Dark hair, light af eyes yet no cool toned lipsticks ever look good on me, maybe a basic cool red but plums and such, no way. In my opionion, I look the best in warm tones, unless it's a orangey brown color, but why in the fuck, shouldn't it be that cool goes with cool?

You're supposed to go to an optometrist for tests and to discuss which SPECIFIC lenses you can safely wear. Take the tests/exams and show them which contacts you want to order and then you'll be fine. I wish everyone knew this

I have oily hooded eyes and makeup is always smudging and stuff, I wasn't wearing sunscreen on my eyes before and now I want to, but every sunscreen is at least a bit greasy and I don't see how that will work with makeup? Is there a sunscreen that is completely safe for eyes and acne and not greasy?

Get a sunstick and eye makeup powder. Another anon also recommended pic related as a non-greasy sunscreen. I have oily skin around my eyes too and I have to powder over eye makeup (and sometimes under to be extra safe).

No. 144742

I'm makeup stupid. My concealer always creases under my eyes within minutes of application. I've tried everything I can think of… dozens of brands, setting with setting spray, setting with pressed powder, setting with loose powder, not setting it, using a ton, only using a little… any other tips?

No. 144743

How are you applying it and how much?

No. 144744

I use the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind, I use the applicator tip, a moderate amount?

No. 144756

I'm pretty sure applicator tip is the offender here then, in my experience anything is better than this, even just your own fingers. For me what works absolutely best is tip of the sponge, like beauty blender or any of the beauty blender copycats (so the sponges you have to wet before use).
As for amount, the less the better, thing people do on all of the beauty tutorials with putting huge trianle of product under the eye is definitely only good for a photoshoot right after, not daily use. I recommend Robert Welsh on yt, his technique is really good, though he uses a small brush, not a sponge. But maybe it will work for you!

Is this a good 5 min routine for uni and work and just every day?:
- semipermanent eyelashes already on
- a bit of mascara
- bb cream with spf
- mascara
- combing eyebrows up with a gel
- highlight on eyebrow ridge, inner corner, cheekbones
- Blush
- Lipstain/lipgloss/lipstick

Give suggestions otherwise if this sux

No. 144785

it's good if it gets you the look you want out of your make-up routine

personally I wouldn't use highlighter on a daily basis but that's me

No. 144792

dont go all the way up to your eye when applying concealer (over the tearbag) just apply beneath the tearbag where the darkness is, there is a lot of movement and creasing that happens on that area so it is best to just avoid it + not applying concealer there will also help stop eyeshadow from creasing beneath the eyes (if you wear any that day) as well as avoiding that cakey crepey look

No. 144797

Sounds fine, I don't think you're using a blinding highlight anyways so sounds nice and fresh. The only thing I wanna nitpick is the lack of actual spf.

No. 144799

Actual spf? What do you mean. The bb cream has 45 spf. I use a sunscreen over my entire body.

No. 144804

I meant like a separate one you spread generously all over the face and neck, bb creams usually don't have high of a spf and aren't applied thick enough but hey if it works for you.

has anyone ever tried the makeup hack of wearing powder, setting spray, and primer before putting on foundation? I did it and I feel like it didn't do anything for me. it just made me feel cakey. I have dry skin idk if that plays a role.

I feel like my eyebrows are weirdly thin/inconsistent in certain areas, but whenever I use an eyebrow pencil, it just looks absurdly thick. I'm not interested in shaving my eyebrows and painting them on since I mainly do natural/no makeup makeup (concealer + small amount of foundation + mascara + curl eyelashes + small amount of blush). What can I do?

Any anons have good tips on how to get rid of blackheads and narrowing your pores? I have oily skin and live in a tropical climate so these things are kinda inevitable.

No. 145292

Research double cleansing and acid exfoliation. Of course a lot of things unfortunately depend on genetics too, but try incorporating these things into your routine and see if theres a difference after a few months (acids need time)

I did a DIY brow tint today and I feel like my life is changed.

My brows have always sucked, I am dirty blonde but my eyebrows were a super-super fair blonde and they made me look bald. For the past several years I wouldn't leave the house without filling them in with a pencil.

I decided to save money and try to tint them on my own and it was super easy. I just used some root touch-up in "light brown" color and Q-tips, and left it on for a few minutes.

I HAVE ACTUAL BROWS NOW WTF. I feel like I look good without makeup. I used to hate removing my brows at the end of the day. Now I just feel pretty when I look in the mirror after showering and I still have brows.

For anons with sucky pale brows, 10/10 would recommend tinting them, either DIY or at a salon, I'm so excited to not fill them in tomorrow.

Have you ever heard of eyebrow gel? My daily makeup is only eyebrow gel, mascara, and half of the time I’ll use stick eyeliner so it definitely doesn’t stick out in the way eyebrow pencil does when you don’t have your face all beat + baked. I use the wellpeople eyebrow gel from target, I think the tint and consistency makes my brows really stand out by just enhancing their natural thickness! I have a bald spot in my eyebrow from a scar I got as a kid so dw, I think it adequately covers up thin parts imo too.

How do you all protect your makeup when it's raining

I know about waterproof mascara but how well does that actually hold up and what about your foundation and lipstick

No. 147309

Does someone, anyone, have an idea about how I can keep my tight lined eyeliner from eventually running and giving me raccoon eyes? I have used multiple “waterproof” liners, both sticks and gels, I have tried using black eyeshadow as liner by applying with a brush, I have tried to air my eyelids out before applying, I apply only to my upper lids, and no matter what eventually I end up with black under my eyes. Maybe I just have the most watery fucking eyes in the world but they don’t seem that intense?? Please halp I NEED liner to fill in my wispy lash line

No. 147320

Waterproof is just that, waterproof, it's not resistant against oils or other things that may smudge your eyeliner. Are your eyelids oily? You might wanna try primer and/or setting powder

No. 147321

the best thing i ever used for this was setting spray- urban decay has one that worked pretty well. you mist it on your face after applying makeup and it holds up pretty well against water
