New makeup thread as >>72061 is being locked at last. Great job throughout the last one, anons! So many posts were informative and helpful.

Feel free to share reviews, videos, infographics, questions, etc as long as they remain on topic about cosmetics.

Are the etude house bb/cc creams good? what are the best bb/cc creams out there?

No. 170553

I used their cotton fit and the mineral fit years ago. The mineral fit doesn't do the patchy/cakey shit that cotton fit does, but the lightest shade of it is still too dark for me. Cotton fit gets patchy and transfers and it seemed like using a primer actually worsened that.

Some good brands are Tony Moly, Holika Holika, Mizon, Lioele, and Skin79.

Doubleposting, but there are also some decent Japanese bb creams on the market. Bison Baby Pink BB Cream is super popular, but its only really useful if you don't have acne to cover and are looking for that flushed complexion. Its translucent. Canmake's bb creams are in the same vein; Good for if you already have near perfect, blemish free skin to work with.


A Korean brand that I forgot to mention was picrel. I got it in #02 for the shade and while its still a bit too dark, mixing it with shade lightening drops from The Body Shop helped. Its actually pretty heavy feeling on my skin though, so I don't use it often.

Have you looked into bb cushions? I've only tried one by Sulwhasoo.

No. 170556

Thx so much anon! i'll check all those out now, you must have super pale skin like me, i find korean and japanese brands to be the best for me because i am super pale with yellow undertones so they usually suit my face. i haven't heard of bb cushions before, i'll look into them now!!

This is just a pointless rant, but I wanna complain that decent makeup in my poor country is just too expensive. Local cheap brands are just completely shite, local average brand is often still worse than international drugstore brands, and expensive makeup is just pretty expensive. Importing even drugstore brands that you americans/europeans consider really affordable (like $15-20) can already get to almost 1/5-1/3 of what a middle class young person in their first jobs earns monthly…

does anyone else use lip plumper, or lip products with a plumping element? i like to combine it with like a lip stain or something light under, or gloss it over a lip butter for a natural look. my lips are full but i have a weirdly small mouth and i find that my facial proportions are instantly like ten times better when i get them to be a tiny bit bigger

pic related, i've been using buxom in "big O" and it's the best lip product i've ever had, it plumps/ moisturizes/ has a custom color-changing element that is a really nice peach-pink on me. i'm obsessed, they should hire me for promo at this point

it plumps instantly for me, but it doesn't make them huge or anything like if you were to use those scary lip suction plastic things. I have lip venom, i tried it once hated it and never used it again, it's too spicy and sticky without actually plumping. my other favorite is the NYX pump it up gloss (the one with the syringe design) which is less effective than buxom but is a good gloss to have when you want shine and a tiny bit more volume

oooh next time i'm at the pharmacy I'll have to look for these, they remind me of another revlon product I used to use all the time in high school.

another really great one that I love are the revlon colorburst lip butters, I think they must be discontinued because I literally had to hunt them down on random websites to stock up on them over the years. 'candy apple' red and the coral orange one are my fav shades. I also really love glossier cherry balm dot calm, I only bought one tube and it's lasted me years now. also etude house color lip balms, and if you have a sephora where you live they have a similar slightly colored/ scented balm line, I have pic related in goji berry and it smells SO good. I'm basically just a sucker for light effective coverage that's moisturizing and doesn't take a ton of effort/ won't fuck my entire look up if it fades off like a harsh lipstick or liquid lipstick (i've tried to get into these SO many times and can't bring myself to like them, the only one that was semi okay was OCC cosmetics) the only lipstick I like are the moisturizing ones by Estee Lauder

I got both blotted lips from Sailor Moon, and for some reason, they just aren't as good quality as the ones from their main collection. I found that the Sailor Moon ones had a weird, patchy application compared to the normal formula. Doozy from their main collection is more red than pink but I find it very similar to the Sailor Moon ones and I like it a lot, it's one of my go-top lip products.

I would skip the Animal Crossing eyeshadow quads. They're not worth the price. They have a warm pink/purple 4-shade palette called Amor for cheaper, but also for 2$ more you can get one of their 9-shade palettes like Lilac You A Lot, which will give you much more utility in my opinion.

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

No. 176354

Okay, maybe I'm wrong for doing this, but I use a little bit of scotch tape and loop it around my finger to pick up all the random flakey bits without harming the skin that's still healing. The concealer/foundation usually do the trick just fine after without caking onto any dry spots.

No. 176363

mederma speeds up the healing process for me and keeps them from lingering as brownish red spots. I put it on the spots at night

No. 176382

I usually cover it overnight with a heavy healing moisturizer or ointment. If that's not possible then I do it for at least 30 min before putting on makeup and wipe off excess and then pick of the crusties with tweezers IF it's not going to further fuck up the area. You should probably color correct if concealer isn't covering the redness, a tiny dot of light green/yellow will counteract redness. Blend only the edges a bit (I like to use a small shader brush or a smudge brush). Set that with a bit of powder and apply your concealer. I use Wet'n'Wild Photofocus for zits, it has pretty good coverage without being super dry. It's probably still going to look slightly crusty though, maybe look into moist healing acne. You basically treat pimples like a wound and use drying treatments very sparingly or not at all.

No. 176390

I would use a chemical exfoliator or toner and put a pimple sticker on it overnight, it’ll get rid of the dryness. I have oily skin so I wouldn’t over moisturise cause it would make me break out. Hope that helps!

This is my go-to matte. If I'm feeling baller I get the soft matte complete foundation by NARS. Both last me at least 10 hours before I need to blot it with a beauty blender, blotting sheet or some translucent powder.

I don't wear makeup myself, but every time I tried I looked like a clown. But I realized that its not what I put on my face, but how. This vid kinda helped me realize this. You should look at your face and really think about facial features to accentuate and highlight vs features you want to hide.

This might belong in the skin thread instead, but I'm having such trouble finding a foundation that doesn't cause flaking on my skin when applied. Now I know it sounds like I have dry skin, but the thing is my skin looks absolutely fine (no noticeable dryness or flaking) when I go bare face. I use a daily cleanser, moisturiser and suncream and it's happy. But if I try to apply a foundation for a little bit of coverage, around the mouth and forehead it doesn't sink in properly and leaves me with flakes. Is this my skin, or am I using the wrong kind of foundation? I'm a amateur with makeup, I'm just looking to even out my skin tone a bit, nothing heavy. Any products to recommend?

Have you tried using BB cream instead? There are some moisturizing kinds, works amazing for me, used to have similar issue in the past.
Something that also helped, even with regular foundation, is moisturizing the skin before applying foundation, locking the moisture with a little bit of oil / squalane. Usually that means you'll have to wait like 20minutes before proceeding to applying foundation, but if you have time, may be worth it. Another thing is the way you apply it, I can see a difference in the way my skin behaves with it depending whether I've used sponge or a brush (sponge + gently pressing technique is much better than smearing with a brush)

No. 177533

Some products aren't compatible with each other, for example using a silicone primer underneath a water-based foundation will cause the products to "pill" (flake off and sit on top of the skin). Oils and oil-based moisturizers can break up foundation in a way that makes it slide around the skin and look patchy, mattifying products tend to have this effect too.

If you're looking for your-skin-but-better coverage I recommend the Skin Perfecting Tint by Glossier, it's my favourite. I know some people think its bogus because it's extremely light coverage but to me it makes a noticeable difference and the texture was incredible. Personally prefer it to any of the BB creams I've tried. They make a concealer and tinted finishing powder too that some people really like.

This is a result of beauty influencers being sponsored to jam as many products they can into one video. Real people don't do that, it would look like shit anyways without all the filters. All you need is a neutral palette (Wet & Wild is good for drugstore, Tarte for higher end) and a blending brush. A light or sparkle shade goes on the lid, then a darker one in the crease. Use the darkest one to line your eyes and blend it up. I also had to learn how to do makeup online so I feel your pain.

how thin are we speaking? typical british thin or 90 year old granny thin?
first use lipstick in a light natural color, smudge it a little so your lipstick softly blends with your skin tone and then use the second lipstick in a darker tone
or use lip liner, but don't overline on the whole length of lips, just on the bow

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

No. 180909

i like to use the white nyx jumbo liner and layer eyeshadows on top of it, but im not too sure if that is the most effective method. my friend uses liquid lipsticks and an eyeliner brush to create looks like picrel and it lasts all day. i feel like water based face paint would be too messy and it would easily crease + spread around a lot. good luck though anon!!

thank u angel that is so clever i never thought of using lipstick i have a lipstick in similar shade!! do you like the nyx jumbo eyeliner? i never actually bought it i did a swatch in the store and wasnt satisfied but if you like it i'll give it a try, you use the white liner as the base right? does eyeshadow stick well onto it? cuz i'm very bad at blending so i never experimented with eyeshadows

No. 180944

For pale people i think a taupe-ish contour works best. Use a fluffy brush with a bit of shape to it (or even a fan brush) and blend blend blend. Bronzer is more for warming your face up and you apply it where sun hits. Contour goes where the shadows would fall on your face. If I used contour I would apply on the sides of the nose, a curve under the cheekbones, and right under the jawline to define it. Just tap your brush into the pan to start and then if you want it darker you can build up color.

No. 181047

The other anon is right but for a newbie i wouldn't rec nose contour. honestly nose contour is pointless imo, just sweep a tiny bit of bronzer/blush instead. Applying too much to the jawline can also look like you've got a beard lol.

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

Contour is to 'shape' your face, bronzer is to make your skin look sunkissed. I'm as pale if not paler as girl in vid and I think it just doesn't look that good on really light skintones, even when applied skillfully.

I've had a hard time finding makeup advice for brows like mine. Is there a name for this shape, where the top part grows down and the bottom part grows up and the inner edge of the brow is a narrow point?

Usually I just wear long bangs to cover my eyebrows because looking at them makes me want to kms, I look like a fucking man. Is there any way to shape/fill these to look nice? They're pretty sparse but look thicker where the hair directions meet and overlap. I don't know much about brow makeup, I've tried filling in with dark powder before but I felt like it just added to the caveman vibe. Any advice would be appreciated.

No. 181123

you do not look like a man.
women's eyebrows also often don't look "feminine" without plucking.
i suggest you look up how asian girls draw on their eyebrows, they usually have sparse eyebrows at the ends and end up plucking them entirely. filling them in isn't very flattering for eyebrows like yours.

No. 181126

The absolute brain rot, your brows look normal. Of course they're not the perfect instagram ultra feminine arched brows when you don't shape them, almost no one has that naturally. Get them shaped, don't use a dark powder but something that matches them or is slightly darker and get a brow gel to brush them up. If you want to make the inner part a bit wider you can draw on individual hairs with powder or a thin brow pen.

No. 181131

i feel you, im on the opposite end mine are thick and super dark but there is a bald spot on one eyebrow, i used to fill it with eyeshadow but i realized it just makes it look darker which i dont like, i'm actually quite jealous of yours cause you can give it any shape you want with eyebrow shadow or tints, it looks more feminine than prominent eyebrows imho

So sorry to be unhelpful but holy shit what a perfect shape and density.

No. 181148

I feel you anon, my natural brows look very similar to yours. My tried and true method is a combination of trimming and shaving. Trimming the hairs with scissors makes a huge difference and makes my brows look much sleeker, and shaving (mostly I just shave the top part, I hate having those awkward stray hairs at the top) gives them a defined, clean edge and it really helps to shed a lot of the weight so your brows aren't as thick.
Also, another thing that really made a difference for me was changing the tails. I used to be way too afraid that I would fuck my eyebrows up so I only did the bare minimum and never strayed too far from the way my hairs naturally grew in, but when I started experimenting and taking off a small portion of the tails I realized how much better it looked. My natural brow tails would curve pretty far down around my temple because there was just so much hair lol and I felt like it overpowered my face. I don't even remove that many hairs off the tails but I guess it comes down to personal preference on how you want to shape your brows.

Imo, absolutely. But it depends on what you want from it. It's light coverage.

From the top: Dusk, Puff, Dawn, Spark, Storm, Haze

I use Spark the most, it has a lot of color and is warm. Dusk is quite brown, I know some people use it as a contour rather than blush. I don't have beam but it might look better for a blush than dusk.

I actually like your brows and they look like they're a really good base. I love these types of brows. Just brush them and fill them in. They'll look great.

Don't use powder lol. What I do is use a bar of soap and a spooly (is that the name?) to brush them a bit, pluck or shave at the ends where it's too curled or slopes too much (which can make your face look bigger at the bottom), and then fill with a pencil and finally a brow pen.

You can get clear mascara, it's underrated! I have a tube of drugstore "brow and eyelash gel" which is just clear mascara, most makeup stores should have something like it.
Also if you like an understated look you can try using a separate mascara brush to just apply a little product with instead of using the brush that lives inside of the tube. Ignore anyone that tells you too use brown mascara as most brown just like black anyway.

Yes, I used it already!

It went really well for a first try, if you look really close it's not completely symmetrical, but ya kno, my lashes/eyes aren't either shrugs

You have to clean your lashes and lid beforehand, then use the included cleanser, try to not get the silicone pads oily (with your hands etc) before using the lash glue to fix it to the lid and fixing the lashed onto the pad.
Wait a bit before fixing the lashes, so the lash glue is half-dry, it'll stick better.
I did a little try-out with my right eye to get a feel for how to stick the lashes onto the pad, I highly recommend you do that, too.
The plastic-wrap on the eye during perming/fixing was a bit annoying, I actually pressed my fingers on it during doing it on the left/second eye so it got warm and more "dramatical" then my right eye/lashes - but it's nothing anyone notices.
tl;dr: I'm very happy with my lashes, I dyed them, too. I look so much more put together when I'm not wearing makeup and when I do, my eyes look HUGE.
Highly recommend!

How the hell do I figure out where to stop plucking my monobrow? If I don't do anything to my eyebrows they'll happily go full cro-magnon, but if I try to line them up with my nostrils like so many brow shaping guides recommend then that spaces them way too far apart. Plus, I've noticed women with "strong" faces like Eva Mendez, Jessica Alba, Liv Tyler, etc seem to get their brows done so that they come in closer to the nose bridge, which should work for my caveman-tier mug but I just can't seem to get it right.

Pic related is the type of advice I see most often, but I've also seen a few guides recommend taking them to the edge of the nose-hole/nostril that might work better? idfk anons, I feel like a baboon with a pair of tweezers sometimes

I fill/draw mine in and pluck around that for the most part. I over plucked in high school because I had huge bushy brows and that was a big no in the ‘00s, so I have some sparseness. But anything that grows outside of that area I pluck.

I don’t know if you draw in at all but maybe buying a brow pencil and making your own template on your face could help.

No. 189145

Monobrows are so gorgeous imo but I know that's a statement not every woman wants to make. That image you posted is a general guide to help get you started but it really depends on how it harmonizes with your other facial features. For example if you have wider spaced eyes it may be more flattering to keep your eyebrows a little closer together. Also where your arch sits can make a big difference in how your brows look so if you feel like you look to surprised or angy you may have tweezed your arch too far in or out. You can fill them in with makeup if you accidentally overtweeze.

I wish my eyebrows would grow that far in, but they’re super sparse in that area so it looks like my brows end at the corner of my eye. I don’t even pluck them or wax them or anything. What’s worse is you can’t fill in that part without looking like a lunatic so I’m stuck with my far apart brows

I'm in Sweden and been part of a campaign to mail companies to stop using PFAS in their products. It's been very succesful with the following brands promising to stop using it: https://www.surfejs.se/nyheter/listan-de-57-sminkmarken-som-lovat-att-sluta-med-pfas/

Yeah, but so far it's only been found in mass-market makeup which is why I switched. I used to wear foundation and had the Naked 3 palette which sadly does contain PFAS and PFAS-adjacent ingredients (idk how to translate this in English) but now I have found some products that are rice starch-based, have a minimal ingredient list and are highly unlikely to contain PFAS. They all happen to be Ecocert/green leaf organic certified.

I use several - PuroBIO is my go-to for eyeshadow and mainly what I was talking about, Benecos for eyeliner/lip liner/lip colour, Boho Green for cream concealer and brows, and Hurraw lip balm. I don't know if all of their products are good or safe but the ones I use seem to be okay. I also have some Catrice brow pencils in the back of my drawer which are alright.

Basically I threw out some liquid lipsticks and palettes with synthetic ingredients like polyvinyl-something and nylon-12, they just turned out to also contain PFAS later which I didn't know at first. So for now I'm just avoiding those altogether.

What are you nonnies' favourite black powder eyeshadows? Many of the ones I've tried just aren't pigmented enough and/or have some fucked up bluish cast to them. Right now I'm trying to use up my ancient pot of Maybelline Color Tattoo in their black shade, which looks okay but is a huge pain in the ass to apply because of the tacky texture. It seems like it would work better with a powder eyeshadow layered on top, although ideally I'd want something that could be worn on its own, too.

Also, I know it's probably dated as hell at this point but I'm an absolute sucker for tonal red looks like picrel. Posting as inspo for my fellow vampire LARPers

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

No. 193789

The self tanners I've used gradually darken, they don't work like a foundation and won't offer coverage without darkening your skin. A tan can help hide unevenness a little though. Contouring with self tanner can be iffy especially if it's not one that you use often. Some self tanners can look orange on lighter skin and if you screw it up you're stuck covering orange patches for a few days until it washes out.

No. 193804

No, selftanner stains the skin, doesn't cover it. Plus maybe this isn't the same for everyone but for me selftanner doesn't even out my stretchmarks, if anything it makes them more visible because of the heightened contrast.

Try flared false lashes, anon. These will still show off your lid and make your eyes look bigger.

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

So does mascara and fake-lashes pull out your actual eyelashes or is that all a myth, if so is there anyway to use those products without the possibility or lessening the possibility of eyelashes falling off.

No. 196349

Only if you do everything wrong.

You can avoid it with mascara by: washing it off gently; avoid sleeping with it on (this will cause the lashes to stiffen and fall out); not over doing waterproof mascara

You can avoid it with false eyelashes by: not getting glue on your lashes (sounds difficult but it doesn’t happen that often to me); avoid sleeping with lashes on

Also if you use an eyelash curler, make sure you curl them, not crimp them. There’s a difference. The key point here: take care of your lashes and do everything correctly and responsibly, and your lashes will be just fine.

I have a few products. The magic foundation is, in my opinion, over hyped and I don't think it blends well or stacks up to other products which I've used. The lipsticks are nice and so is the mascara along with the brightening youth glow.

The palettes really depend on what you're looking for. There's dupes of nearly each of them and its mostly shimmery shades, so I can't justify paying so much for something other brands have had already for less.

I never found a tinted moisturizer I liked. So I’ve been using this combo(I use a facial moisturizer to mix the tanning drops) and a small amount of nars radiant consealer. I like that natural look/dewy finish and this works great. The consealer is buildable. My make up style is pretty minimal. Mascara and I fill my brows so it works for me.

Any recommendations for natural looking mascara?
I can't stand the look of normal mascara because I naturally have long, light coloured lashes and I think the super long, cakey and black look that most mascaras give me doesn't work at all.
For a while I've been mixing a clear mascara with a little bit of black mascara to make a grey-ish one. It works well enough, but it has some issues and I'd much prefer to use a product that's made purposely to look somewhat natural!
Can anybody help me out here?

No. 198705

I have light eyelashes also. The most natural mascara I've found so far is Covergirl Clump Crusher (in the green tube) once it starts to dry out. There is an actual "brown" shade, though it can be tricky to find since not all stores seem to carry it. Don't get black-brown or black, the brown is much more natural looking. Also, it gets better as you use it and it dries out a bit. After that it doesn't clump at all and looks super natural. Closest I have gotten to mascara that looks like actual dark eyelashes instead of obvious mascara lol.

I have the same problem. While it's not waterproof, I highly recommend the Just for Redheads mascara especially if your hair has a red hue. Colourpop has a decent brown mascara too. If you're feeling desperate, putting eyebrow mascara on your lashes should be fine if it's eye safe. Also, as for fake lashes, Ardell has some brown ones that I personally think look great. You can also always have them tinted too I think!

Did anyone try eyebrow tinting/dying? Is it even worth it if your brows are sparse?

I thought it was super worth it. when I was dyeing my hair dark i matched my eyebrows with an eyebrow dye, it was really easy and it was like wearing mascara for the rest of my face?

Sure. If you don't have an especially uneven complexion it will still be noticeable and look nice so long as you don't go overboard. The best type of product depends on your skin type. I prefer cream contour since I have drier skin, but if your skin is oily then a powder would likely be better.

Pomades are typically the most pigmented so would be suitable for dark brows. I like Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade. It's a popular/common choice but for good reason in my opinion.

You can try using an app like makeup plus to virtually test different red colours as a starting point.

If your skin is truly neutral, then a pick a neutral lipstick that isn't particularly cool or warm. Another way to check your undertone is to see whether you prefer warm brown eyeshadow or taupe eyeshadow.

The type of red depends on your hair colour too - if it's dark then a dark lipstick, if it's blonde or light then go muted/lighter, if it's red or a strong dyed colour then go more saturated/bright.

No. 199471

I see black bloggers do it too re much needed dark skin foundations, it's annoying tis all. It's clickbait, that's what I meant.

It's a regional phenomenon in the UK, my area isn't obsessed with tanning at all, but the orange faces are still fairly prevalent because mainstream stores just don't cater to the average woman's skin tone, it's frustrating. Young British girls in particular tend to have hilariously bad foundation cos all they can afford to buy is the cheapest drug store foundation available. Some girls I went to school with who had skin issues began fake tanning their bodies just to get their face to match and not look ridiculous anymore, I am not joking.

There's no such thing as an universal colour system.

If you get 5 foundations from different brands named "sand" you'll have 5 different shades. If you go to a cosmetics store to have yourself swatched and matched, the salesperson will pull foundations from their collection and find matching one(s) and those could be named whatever the brand named it.

No, it’s best to use a waterproof eyeliner in either form though so it doesn’t bleed or flake into your eyes.

Depends on the look you’re going for. Makeup is used to enhance your best features and yes there should be balance, but you can’t help the size of your nose and that’s okay.

Anons I'm gonna kill myself. I had some lipsticks, on tube of mascara and two highlighters that I used on a regular basis before the pandemic stored in one of my drawers right next to my bed. I haven't touched them in over a year but last week I noticed only the mascara was there. I have no idea where the rest is, I checked my room thoroughly and they're nowhere to be found, and I have no idea where else they could. Keep in mind that I live with my family so maybe someone took some of my stuff for some reason because I have absolutely no privacy at all. It's all expensive stuff I didn't even have time to use that much or limited editions, I'm so fucking mad.

Ladies I need some advice on how I can make my makeup looks more soft, refined, and “natural” looking.
I’ve gotten into a rabbit hole of doing my makeup heavy handed, like drag/insta baddie makeup.
I’m ready to move on from this type of makeup, so any tips on soft, cute makeup would be greatly appreciated. I like experimenting with colors and shapes.
What I need help with:

>Dewy foundation, would love tips on a natural looking base
>Neutral glam/everyday eye makeup

You can try to look at korean makeup tutorials for natural eye-shadow looks, they usually involve using a few beige and brown shades (from one tone lighter to two tones darker than your skintone) matte for everyday and sparkly gold or rose natural tones for the evening. If you want to be ridiculouly basic just a wash of your skintone shade all over the lid can be enough. If you have an eye for interesting makeup,you can try doing the same placement you do for heavy looks with a very light hand and natural shades.

Lisa Eldridge is a must watch of course, she is a professional artist that can do extraordinary makeup from natural to very experimental and she works on various models of different ages and skintone, really gives great advice on how to do makeup that will suit your natural features. She IMO really makes all her models look absoluterly gorgeous. This is super colorful but still refined makeup for example :


I am not so good at foundation but I have friends that swear by her advice for natural skin makeup. Don't know about dewy specifically.

For eyebrows, if they are thick then my best advice would be to lay off the makeup for a while and follow and adapt this grooming routine, you may not even need any eyebrow makeup at all. If you do lightly coloring in any uneven part with an eyebrow pencil that suits you should be enough.


No. 203084

Use clear eyebrow gel/soap to brush your eyebrows. You could also use a tinted eyebrow mascara if you feel like you need some filling, a very natural one is Boy Brow from Glossier or Essence Make Me Brow. Make sure you groom them well.

For the dewy look you can either purchase a dewy foundation (Glossier or pretty much any korean BB cream/cushion), use a dewy setting spray (I love the nyx one) or apply sunscreen 10-15 minutes before foundation. Sunscreen always made me look dewy, if applied properly. Ditch contour and apply a faded blush, you will look a lot more natural.

i feel like such a fucking idiot. how the fuck do i do makeup?
what the fuck is foundation?

i'm in my early 30s, i didn't have a mom to teach me this stuff and my upbringing led to a lot of problems with insecurity and confidence that i'm still trying to deal with. i've rejected femininity throughout a lot of my life as a result of these issues and i just want to be more feminine now. i went to sephora thinking maybe someone there could teach me the basics. i told the lady there i have no idea about makeup and she kept asking me what looks i liked (i don't know any looks) or if i wanted foundation or something else (i don't remember what it was and i don't know what foundation is) and kept asking if i wanted this or that and all these other make up items and terms that i don't know. when i told her i don't know any of this stuff she just said "well you're going to have to work with me." i got so frustrated that i just left because i'm clearly in over my head going to a makeup store in the mall. where do people go to learn make up when they don't have moms to teach them? i tried buying makeup at cvs but its all obviously shit quality, the lipstick isn't the same color on the lips as on the label, it all runs and gets everywhere. i look like a fucking kid or a clown when i try to put it on. so i thought maybe sephora would have a bit more knowledge and better product and be able to help but instead they just made me feel even stupider.

i don't know what the fuck i'm doing or how to learn what the fuck to do. i'm so frustrated and embarrassed that i'm this old and i don't know how to put on fucking makeup.
there is clearly a wealth of information on the internet and tutorials on youtube and stuff but every time i try to watch one i feel like i'm in over my head. like someone who doesn't know what a pencil is trying to learn how to draw. even coming into this thread is really overwhelming. i really just need someone to show me and answer any stupid dumb idiot questions i have without making me feel like an even bigger stupid dumb idiot, but i don't know where to find that.

Try "makeup for beginners" on youtube or something? There are also old-school makeup books if that's more your thing.

No. 203263

I didn't have my mom to teach me since you didn't like make-up, I learned from the internet. Blogs (at the time) and youtube and my own experimentation. I'd be careful with just picking any "beginner makeup tutorial" video from youtube though, most of them will expect you already know what the basic/most common products are and do and a lot of them still cake on like 10 products. Vid I added may be useful for you. It's by a FtM troon sorry about that, but she actually goes through most of the common items with an explanation of what it does. Definitely don't think you need to use all of that though! I've been using make-up for over a decade and I'm down to a really minimalist daily routine of three products (mascara (makes your lashes dark and stand out), blush (to well, make your cheeks blush) and something to fill in my brows.

Here's also a good written resource that explains most common make-up products if you prefer text: https://www.makeupartistessentials.com/an-introduction-to-makeup-types-of-makeup/

I'd say, if you want to buy a make-up product and you have no idea where to start, go get one single product and it should be a mascara. As I said it's a product that enhances your lashes (makes them darker and thicker, some specialize in for example more curling or enhancign the length). It's subtle and hard to mess up. And probably the most basic make-up item there is, no one who wears make-up doesn't wear mascara. Don't get a waterproof one, you'll find it difficult to remove. Try and experiment with it in the comfort of your own home until you're condifent to wear it out and/or move on to another product.

No. 203275

>i didn't have a mom to teach me this stuff
You overestimate how common/important having someone to 'teach' you makeup is. My mum didn't tell me a thing, I learned through trial and error, emphasis on the error. That means years of wearing disgusting orange dreamy matte mouse in high school, and wasting hundreds just to try foundation that didn't work for my skin at all. Most people don't have the luxury of being proficient at makeup from the start, the difference is you probably have more self awareness than a teenager and can tell when your makeup is the wrong colour or too heavy or whatever. And even if tutorials and guides are overwhelming, at least they're there and you have plenty of resources once you can handle the information overload.

I lost interest in makeup long ago so anons can give you better specific advice about learning but I'm just saying you shouldn't expect to be great at makeup without being shit at it first, most of us went through the same thing.

No. 203282

my mom didn't teach me either, I learned from youtube. Like the other anon said look up some beginner/everyday looks. Don't feel like you need to use every product youtubers use in their videos though, I remember for a while as a teenager I wore foundation and powder every day because all the vloggers told me to, even though I didn't need them at all. Also keep in mind most product recommendations in more recent youtube videos aren't genuine.
What the other anon said about mascara is true however depending on your features I'd recommend you also consider an eyebrow pencil and/or a lip product. I have small eyes but full lips and sparse eyebrows so learning how to do lips and brows made a much bigger difference for me than eye makeup, and I regret not realizing this sooner

No. 203283

Makeup is to add color and definition to your face, as well as bring out features and even out your skin tone. Find out what you wanna do; what facial features do you like the most? Do you have nice full lips you wanna blush up with lip color? Big green eyes you want to stand out? Blemish or skin imperfection concerns?

No. 203288

no ones mom teaches them how to put on makeup, get a concealer, blush, mascara, a tinted lip balm, a big brush to put blush on your cheeks, a beauty blender to dab concealer under your eyes and blemishes until it melts into your skin(very intuitive) and you'll need a moisturizer as base before you put your makeup on, I use sunscreen. As you feel more comfortable you can move on to eyeshadow, eyeliner, highlighter, setting powder and bronzer since they're harder to execute but it takes like 3 minutes of watching youtube to get a hang of it. You do feel like a clown going out with makeup when you're not used to it but it gets better you have to practice every other day and it becomes automatic at some point and you become really good at it. Foundation is not necessary, I wear full face of makeup without foundation almost every day.

I'm thinking about picking up a black lip color, since much of wardrobe is goth/alternative. My lips are pretty thin, so I'm very self-conscious about bold colors looking strange on me.

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

Don't go solid black like in your pic related because a solid lipstick colour without will always make your lips appear a little smaller and flatter.

The best thing to do is a subtle gradient. For example, if you want to go black, get a jet black lip liner and a slightly sheer black lipstick. Outline as normal, add in some extra liner in the least plump parts of your lips (corners and sides mostly) with the very dark black and then apply the sheer black all over your lips. The slight difference in colour between the outline and the plumpest part of your lips give the appearance of fullness. A glossy lipstick will also add to the effect.

picrel is the effect with a purple colour

Can any makeup anons help me determine my eye shape? Is it just deep set/round? I hate how much of my eyelid shows, it accentuates my weird uneven eye especially when I smile. The only "good" eyeshadow look I've found is using a very subtle brown as the base and a slightly darker one on the outer lid, any more than that and I start to look crazy, it just makes my eyes look too big like I'm a bug kek
I have been doing my makeup for over 12 years and never stopped to consider my eye shape and always wondered why some days I felt I looked way better than others, i know it has to do with my eyeshadow and eyeliner shape/application but I just don't know what looks best until I've finished it and I can never really recreate it..ugh lol

I think your eye shape is beautiful anon! I have really small, wideset eyes, so perhaps I can recommend doing the opposite of what I do with my makeup lol. Darkening your waterline would probably look good on you. It adds intensity and makes the eye appear smaller. You can add a lighter shade on the inner corners of your lids while doing your usual eyeshadow look. I'm wondering how you do your eyeliner because that can make or break the whole thing.

Your eye-type is called protruding. My bf has that type, and they're even more protruding than yours. I love them, they're so pretty.

Thank you anons for these suggestions, particularly for Krysten Ritter and Brittany Broski, Brittanys look quite similar to mine. Her style is a bit dramatic but I like it, I'm gonna try all of the suggestions and hope somethin sticks out to me
Grass is always greener I think, I absolutely love how hooded/deep set eyes look, they look mysterious and so, so pretty to me.
I definitely like darkening my waterline, it makes my eyes look alot smaller and less round, but I've found that using a lighter color on my inner corner tends to bring attention to how close set my eyes are unfortunately. I tend to do my eyeliner in a pretty standard "cat" wing, not too extremely long and usually pretty thin. I always feel 100x better about my appearance with just concealer, mascara, and eyeliner wings lol. I usually skip waterline eyeliner bc it tends to..migrate to my inner corner and looks gross if you aren't checking it constantly
That may be the greatest compliment I've received, thank you anon ♥
I've been watching youtube videos of people describe deep set eyes vs protruding eyes, and it's still hard for me to determine even after staring at my face and photos of my eyes.
My brow bone definitely sticks out more than my eyes, but I've got a shitload of eyelid space similar to protruding eyes
I think they are deep set but with..prominent features? Like >>203491 said. I think the combination of features is why I struggle with following tutorials for specific eye shapes. I'm gonna search for videos that specifically fall under deep set and prominent
thank you to everyone who replied, it is somehow comforting to know that I am no longer the only person confused about my own eye shape. KEK
like in this photo, I feel like my eyes look most similar to protruding, but in youtube vids for protruding eyes, they look so much different than mine?

sorry anon if this is your eye, please fix your eyebrow in the first place. I don't mean to be nitpicky or mean, eyebrows like yours would make anyone look worse. Let your natural eyebrows grow or watch a tutorial and learn how to make them look a little bit thicker and natural.

The white on your lower lid is too much, use a more natural highlighter there, something less proeminent. Don't wear eyeliner and put a darker shade in your crease. Make your eyelashes thicker at the end of your eye or wear a couple of fake lashes there.

No. 203753

your eyes are so pretty nonny! you have such a pretty eye shape.
i think you could benefit from sort of extending the area where you apply eyeshadow a bit higher up and also on the outer lower part of your eye. i'm not very well educated on eye shapes so someone correct me if i'm wrong but your eyes look a bit hooded while also having a double eyelid, so i assume that's why you're having issues with eyeshadow getting oily in your crease.
i found a few videos that may help give you some ideas of what i mean particularly about the eyeshadow location.

also, i dont think the shape of your eyebrow is bad, but i do think you could benefit from extending your brows and thickening them a bit with a greyish toned eyebrow pen. i prefer eyebrow pens to pencils or pomades because they look more natural. the tolymoly 7 day eyebrow is good: https://tonymoly.us/products/7-days-tattoo-eyebrow

Kek this will sound stupid and very strange as fuck but have any anons ever tried mixing stuff into liquid lipstick to alter the shade before?

I don’t wanna give anyone used makeup, and I certainly don’t know anyone who would wear the shade. Not to mention I don’t want to toss it or let it sit unused until it goes bad either. If it was slightly more pink or peachy, it would be the perfect nude. Please tell me if you know any ways to change it with another pigment or something. I’ve thought of using one of my redder/pinkish liquid lipsticks to mix into it but I’m scared of changing the formula too much.

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

I'm just going to throw this tip into the wind, something I picked up from Liv Tyler, but clear eyes or any anti-redness eye drops do wonders and it shocks me I don't see it talked about more often.

TLDR; try eye drops.

anons, how can i do a colorful waterline like picrel? i’ve heard that you can put eyeshadow primer on your waterline, then pat pigment on top, but when i try that i get a bunch of pigment in my eye and it doesn’t look good. should i mix the pigment with the primer before putting it on my waterline?
would also appreciate if you guys could tell me what to search for to find tutorials for this, i’ve tried searching youtube but i can’t find tutorials for this specifically, just for entire eye makeup looks.

Pencils and gel liners are your best choice. You could use a white pencil and try patting shadow on top but in my experience it doesn't really stick. Best wait for a colourpop sale, they have sets of colorful gel pencils and liners.

it definitely gets easier with practice, it also helps to trim a few chunks of eyelash off the inner corner parts of the lash strips.

No. 210109

It gets much easier with practice, but you can try half lashes if a full strip is too finnicky for you. Try applying them with hands or tweezers, and maybe draw thicker liner to cover up mistakes. Also like the other anon said trim the band but on the OUTER corner. You want take a chunk off from the part that's longer.

No. 214426

Western shadows also have really nice glittery shades. MAC's new holiday collection has gorgeous singles. Huda does beautiful metallics. Kiko and Pupa are two italian brands with very glittery "wet" looking shadows. If you're hell bent on making the korean palettes work, I'd recommend using a mixing medium or a glitter glue(Pixie Epoxy, Inglot, MAC, NYX) for the metallics/shimmers and the Wet n Wild shadow primer for mattes.
