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

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.

Ntayrt but you're totally fine! Its a makeup thread after all.
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.
File: 1514413713648.jpg (68.36 KB, 500x500, 6391.jpg)
Its probably too bright for me, yeah. I'm fairly fair skinned Eurasian mix and some colors look weird on me such as MAC's Girl About Town and Jeffree Star's Prom Night. The latter was actually the worst, but I got it because I was told that pale girls can't wear pale pinks without looking washed out.
But, I reaaaallyyyy hate dark pinks.

If people don't like it then they can simply not purchase it, right? I myself no longer use Too Faced, but I couldn't give a shit less if someone else does. Its just a cute photo. That's all.
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.
What about Alba Botanica?
Also for those of you seeking resources for cruelty-free: https://www.crueltyfreekitty.com/list-of-cruelty-free-brands/>>72139
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.
>>72121> being triggered by Too Faced
I’m sorry but what exactly about TF could possibly be morally worse than what any other makeup brand is/has done? 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.
Kiko only say they're cruelty free. They don't have a label, they could be using chemicals which are tested. Of course the end products aren't tested but that's just the law, no brand tests the end products.
I wish they would get a label though, I just don't trust their word. They were my favourite brand.before I went CF.
I browse the Jill thread and saw that too. I didn’t contribute though, because I can resist infighting lol, some of those anons need to chill on that thread lol.>>72152
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.

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)>>72121
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.
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.
File: 1514511852530.png (289.54 KB, 500x610, 422.png)
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.>>72196
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.
>>72203>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 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".

Totally seconding you on the Korean cushions. I recently ordered pic related almost purely for the amazing packaging lol. I already have a CC Cushion from peripera that I like (that also has adorable packaging) but I just couldn’t resist this one lol. Regardless of how much I’ll use it it will look beautiful on my vanity/in my makeup collection until the end of time lmao.

Not sure how much you're willing to fork over but dermablend is pretty good shit that was designed for all types of skin issues like vitiligo, cystic acne, burns, among other things.

I use mizon. Etude house cotton fit is better than their mineral ones in my opinion, but everybody is different. Holika holika also has nice bb cream with tea tree oil in it. There are other options for their brand as well. Canmake is pretty heavy in terms of coverage.
A lot of people swear by Missha, but I found that they not only were always too dark for me but it also broke me out. Though everyone is different and maybe it will work for you! Another highly raved upon option is Skin79 in the pink container.

>tfw you get allergic conjunctivitis from using a baking powder with talc as the first ingredient
>pic related is what killed my eyes today
Anyone else have allergies when it comes to makeup? I’m allergic to most drugstore brands (excluding Maybeline), as well as tarte and urban decay. I’m pretty sure I’m allergic to cheap talc. I’m severely allergic to talc, it gets so bad when I put it on that I can’t even open my eyes. It doesn’t matter what product I use from tarte, I seem to be allergic to it.
Aww that sucks, because philosophy products are really nice and gentle on the skin.>>72302
I’ve never heard of that brand but I’m grateful my eyes have never swollen up. Only my eyeballs are affected, not my skin.>>72291
Thanks for letting me know this! I might try thebalm (I’ve only heard that name and always thought it was “the bomb”) since it has mica as the first ingredient. I might try the eyeshadows because that’s where my biggest issue comes from. I know coverfx is trying to remove talc from all their products so there’s always that too.

>mfw I find out my younger sister refuses to wear a setting powder and instead sets her face and eyebrows with cheap hairspray
Dumbass beauty “”””gurus”””” lol. >>72505
I told her it was bad for her skin and she didn’t care. I knew she was using to set her brows (which is still pretty stupid imo but since it’s hair I didn’t think it was too crazy) but I didn’t know she was spraying it on her whole face until the other day. >>72498
Lol when I was in middle school I would put on three layers of drugstore foundation and I don’t even think I’d set it with powder. But my sister’s in high school and has access to YouTube, she should know better.
Op here and I personally don't either, but like I said earlier itt it's because I understand that legislation is what will change things. Not myself or even a hundred people not buying a brand that sells worldwide to thousands of others who also do not give a shit.
Expect people to get salty towards you though like >>72889

I want that Perricone MD No Lipstick Lipstick, but I also don’t wanna spend $30 on a lipstick that may or may not be worth it. Also, I want that Tom Ford bronzer. And that foundation. And everything else, fml. I can afford the Stila Convertible Color in shade Lillium but I should probably wait until I go to a Sephora store.

You’re making me want it even more, fuck. How did it look on your lips? What color were your lips before vs after?
I have an OT question, have any of you ever received a VIB Rouge gift by mistake, from either online or in-store?
Hmm that's about the amount I use too. Maybe it is the primer, I've never had luck with anything other than shine killer by nyx. I tried it a few times with benefit pore filler and holy shit it was a nightmare.
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

I miss shit like the electric palette, I wish bold colors were more mainstream
Korean bb creams broke me out in cysts so badly. The only bb cream that has kept my oil away and hasn’t broken me out would be the Covergirl matte bb. >>72061
Tried the Fenty foundation, and it looked amazing on well moisturized and primed skin. If you’re sensitive to talc, I’d stay away from it. I don’t wear it everyday because it clogs my pores. A shame because the finish is so nice. Tarte’s shape tape concealer is really nice for spot concealing my dark red acne spots.
Sugarpill is probably my favourite brand, actually! I wish they were available other than just online because the shipping to where I live and the customs costs are just insane
That or in-store brands having other palettes besides 50 shades of brown and some reds

Any recommendations for someone with really pale skin.
I’m albino shade and FB is sold out in every Sephora in my city.
Snow from too faced is too dark for me
/concealers / foundation/ anything pls
Milkbottle white Irish anon here.
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.

Same, I'd like to see a pale BB cream for oily/combination skin with at least medium coverage, no transfer effect. Also I'd like some glow, super matte is not my cup of tea and combined with my pale skin makes me look legit dead.

Thank you fellow ghosts
OP here and I use Mizon snail bb cream and it has been the only thing which works for me. I've been using it since 2014. Prior to that, I was just using Hourglass immaculate face powder in ethereal. https://www.faceatelier.com/product/ultra-foundation/category/complexion/
You could get pearl or zero minus, which is legitimately paper white. Or, Manic Panic brand.https://www.amazon.com/Manic-Panic-White-Powder-Foundation/dp/B0010O3URU
Comes in both this or an actual pump bottle.
looking for a new cushion compact. i currently use hera, but i feel like it might be a little to dark/drying. mostly wanting cc/bb creams.
also i bought some japanese make up recently and can give reviews! i will list what i got in a few minutes.
Its okay! You could try https://www.amazon.com/2011-08-17-Produced-Amore-Laneige-Natural/dp/B0056EGIA6/ref=sr_1_3_s_it?s=beauty&ie=UTF8&qid=1516146328&sr=1-3&keywords=laneige+snow+bb+cream
It only has two shades and #1 is just a shimmery cream with no real color to it. There is also Missha signature complete bb cream. The only cc cream I've tried is by Nyx and honestly it wasn't that good. Very drying.
Thanks for the suggestion, unfortunately I looked it up and it's still too tan for me :(
On the other hand, I've been looking up at Missha's signature complete BB cream and Missha perfect cover BB cream, both in shade 13, they both seem good for me!

Anyone else hyped for this or nah
On the one hand, the packaging is beyond cute and sugarpill's formula is really nice and pigmented. But on the other hand, both of those lip shades look totally unwearable beyond cool club kid/insta looks. The eyeshadow might be OK but it's still pretty bold. I'm so conflicted.
Oh god how did I not think of this! Thanks anon, you saved me some money.>>74391
Cheers for letting me know. From what I have seen now on reddit a lot of people share that sentiment. Apparently they go ham on the oils but they're not actually great oils and make you greasy and apparently the quality is seriously sub par.

I'm currently using Estee lauder DW in Encru+nyx white mixer and like the combo a lot since it leaves my skin covered but dewy and it has a really neutral undertone, but i've read in MA that they changed the formula of EL up so i'm not sure if to repurchase it or change it up. 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.
Any anons that wear the shades, which one would you say is better for a ghost with neutral undertones?

Could I get some advice on BB creams/light moisturizers?
My skin is getting better so I want to stop wearing heavy foundation. I don't get bad acne anymore, just like 3-5 small pimples that seem to be cause by hormones so no big deal. I want something light since it only has to cover a bit of redness.
However, my skin is dry on the cheeks but oily at the T zone and chin. Is there anything I should watch out for? Any recommended EU brands?
Try korean brands. I really like Holika Holika Petit BBcream in Aqua and Clearing. Holipop in Matte is also good, not too dry in my opinion.>>75265>clogs my pores
Cleanse your skin better, try double cleansing method. Or maybe your skin hates the primer and BBcream you are using. Tip avoid western bbcreams. They are mostly garbage.
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.
They have another one, from Nutra Effects line, which I use kinda like a foundation. Definitely needs a powder. Heavier but still ok.
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.
bb and cc cream have no use unless you want
the benefits, that's really the only reason to use it.
>less shades>less coverage>very shiny
they're not somehow magically better other than other light foundations. also you must have misread my post but i didn't say anything about bb/cc SPF i actually was talking about the western brands utilizing that. you sound like you don't know very much.
do you use eye tape that can help. do NOT listen to >>75355>>75355>ex mua>telling people to put after shave on their eyelids>doesn't know what oil blotting paper is>instead recommends rolling papers
i realize why you're an "ex mua"…
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?
>yes eye tape on my tear duct is working wonderfully for the oil being produced by my eyelid
Yah don’t listen to me this anon’s got it sorted.
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.
I’m sat here trying to imagine what you’re saying and I actually can’t lmao. I can just imagine anon taping her eyebrows to her forehead kek
Eye tape is usually used to create creases in monolids so I literally don’t know what you’re talking about? I do have hooded eyes, as have clients I’ve worked on, and I’ve used my suggestions successfully. But sure anon, your knowledge of surface area is totally humiliating me because yours is the only advice anyone should listen to. Thanks for correcting me~
>1 pack for $4 (15 sheets) >5 packs for £1 (250 sheets)
Have fun wasting your money on literal paper to wipe oil off your face…

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.
File: 1519333295169.jpg (13.41 KB, 480x220, compare_2_large.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.
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.
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.
(OT but I am not going to any MUA if they're putting rolling papers made of who knows what on my eyes)

Lmao who are you, the Makeup Council? I’ll call myself a MUA because I am one. I worked for 2 major companies and did it for nearly 10 years. Rolling papers clearly do have a gum, otherwise they would just be a strip of paper?? (PR)
>moving upwards from tear duct to spread over upper lid>obviously not possible because of the effects of gravity
I don’t know where I said my suggestions were super stellar, I just didn’t expect so many responses with factually incorrect personal attacks.
OT but don’t worry yourself hon because I wouldn’t do your makeup anyway. Hiding this thread now, so you guys can get on with sperging about putting paper on your eyelids in peace.

>”use rolling paper for blotting”
Good meme anon
most bb creams are just over glorified light sheer foundations with spf, I love some but let's be real I'm not going to pretend a bb cream is going to do some major skin improvements.
And yes im specifically talking about korean bb creams.
no one's saying they're going to cure cystic acne, but they do have essence and stuff in them, especially the expensive ones, the one i currently have has whitening ingredients as well.
in any case western brands are literally just sunscreen mixed with foundation.
why does anyone need essence mixed into bb cream if you already have your daily essence? where is the whitening coming from? the finish and spf of the bb cream or what exactly?
vitamin c and AHAs already brighten the skin so I'm not the buying the whole marketing claim that a bb cream is going to actually going to improve skin at all. You can achieve the same results by following a good skincare regimin with your foundation of choice.

Does anyone have any advice for a noob trying to get into makeup? I want to follow tutorials but it’s all this drag makeup shit and forking over $200+ for stuff to put on your face and I really don’t know if i’m okay with making that kind of commitment.
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.
You don't need all that make-up crap. That lady looks like a drag queen, so not attractive at all.
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
>>75447>foundation without setting it>underlining eye always looks good>no filling eyebrows
You're just asking her to end up looking like a greasy Margo impersonator, please don't give makeup advice anymore.>>75462
I recommend NYX and Milani and definetly go see sales from different websites.
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.
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.
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.
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.
nobody was reeing about sunscreen, it was about how bb cream isn't necessarily superior to foundation.
sorry you had a bad day
Yes! I have this issue!!! I came here looking for some advice too. I still love to do eyeshadow, and just take photos with “tired” eyes so people can see it kek, but I just end up looking high. Lately I’ve stopped wearing eyeliner cause I find you can see the shadow a little more since the liner usually covers that tiny sliver that can be seen….
However, because my eyelids are pretty much non existent they’re also very oily?? They’re dry also so it’s driving me nuts. My shadow primer dries them out and the oil makes the primer useless, but without primer the shadow is gone in like an hour. Wtf do I do to get healthy eyelids that eyeshadow will stick to lol

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.>>75986
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.

This girl has so much more visible eyelid than me. My eyes sort of look like this except more deepset. I have an epicanthic fold so inner corner isn’t even visible. >>75986
I put retina all over my eyes because I was starting to get wrinkles under my eyes and it dried the hell out of my eyelids. Before I had super greasy lids too.
I can’t imagine skipping eyeliner though it’s my number one makeup.
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.

Not really about makeup but i had no idea about there else to post this…
Many people say that keeping your eyebrows a bit bushier will make you look younger and helps your eyes look bigger. Yet i often feel like it's the opposite…? That girl has rather thin brows yet her eyes look nice…?

Her's are even thinner
These girls are extremely attractive young models, of course they look pretty and youthful even with thin eyebrows.
Kids do have thicker and flatter brows so they're a pretty safe bet. Thin and arched eyebrows might suit some better, it's just more of a risk.
I have naturally bushy brows and I do not look younger with them. As a kid they made me look extremely ugly and boyish.
One size does not fit all, try it out with a brow pencil and some stencils and see what works better. I'm getting tired of the brow craze and people insisting that thicker brows are always better.
I'm not a fan of body hair in general so thick brows is Not Somethin' I Like, but the trend continues…
Large brows distract from other features in the face, if you have delicate features I don't believe it is an improvement. But obviously I'm biased as above
File: 1521240981729.jpg (95.31 KB, 1200x630, 4592.jpg)
If you compare the former 2 with this one, don't her eyes look somewhat narrower in contrast with her thick brows…? like some girls seem to have bigger brows than eyes
I think thicker brows look good if you have more round and cute features ala Lily Collins because it gives you a youthful look but someone like Angelina Jolie who has strong womanly features will look elegant and beautiful with thinner brows IMO.
This girl >>76421
would look way nicer with thin brows.

She's wearing a full face of makeup, full coverage foundation, a peachy blush, brown/taupe eyeshadow, mascara, an a dusty cedar lipstick.

Anons with oily skin, I recently started using the garnier micellar water for combo to oily skin as well as the micellar face wash, a face foam and toner, all the same line pic related. My skin stays matte all day without being dry and it's my first time in months waking up with no new acne.
File: 1521376519869.png (184.96 KB, 372x488, prod-P11130-big.png)
In mine as well; my friend had the one for normal skin and she warned me about it since it made her break out like hell.
Some time later i still got it (the pink one for sensitive skin) and it worked really well for he first few weeks/months. Then suddenly i started getting all these little pimples all over my face, it was itchy like hell and when i stopped using it my skin went back to normal.
But maybe they have different formulas in different countries?
Thanks for the suggestion, I didn't know this product. So it's even cleared up your acne? Will try it.>>76438>>76439
In the skincare thread these products have been talked about the other day. Personally the combo micellar water (the green one) has been working great on me
About Garnier micellar water, some of it has potencially cancer-causing polyaminopropyl biguanide that is banned from skincare products. https://kemi.taenk.dk/bliv-groennere/banned-and-potentially-cancer-causing-substance-still-found-personal-care-products
here's a full list of cosmetics with it.
Some say it's only dangerous if swallowed. I'm no chemist.
Badescu's stuff is pretty controversial, too
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.
Yup, it was this set:https://www.aliexpress.com/item/7pcs-Makeup-Brushes-For-Eye-Natural-Goat-Pony-Synthetic-Hair-Foundation-Eyeshadow-Eyeliner-Lip-Concealer-Cheap/32845668935.html

I have a problem with makeup, I have no problem with putting on lipstick or foundation (my skin's pretty clear) but I have these horrible eyes that refuse to have makeup on them, I put eyeshadow they just becomes invisible. Or I put on a cat eye and it smears everywhere… I've tried to find a youtube tutorial but nobody really fit the bill of my eye shape. So can anyone give any pointers?
(also the photo is related because this girls eyes are very similar to mine)

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.
What do you use to apply your foundation anon? I have the same foundation and normal/oily combo skin and have never had this problem (but use setting spray instead of powder)
Maybe try a different foundation brush or application method and a different primer.

>>79104> Innisfree No sebum
This looks neat, thanks!
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
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!

anybody have a favorite (affordable) highlighter they can recommend that isn't glittery at all? I'm looking for something for very fair skin. I bought pic related and the color is gorgeous/the texture is nice in that it's sort of a powder that feels like a cream but there's so much fucking glitter.
I really want something that's more glossy/sheen-y rather than glittery. Preferably something that's pretty subtle.
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.
Tbh I'm still slightly overwhelmed by the number of things I need to learn, though once again, thanks.
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.

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.>>82618
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.
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
File: 1529176956629.jpg (131.39 KB, 1024x866, Physicians-Formula-Nude-Wear-S…)
their highlight brick is great, not glittery, just high shine
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.

I have the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette and I don't know how to use it. I don't think the colors even suit my skin tone and I should have bought the Naked 3 palette, but that aside. I feel like I'm not good at applying it because sometimes the colors don't show up all that much on my lids or I make a mess because of how I use the brush that comes with the palette. I'm not sure how to explain this. If anyone has advice like which colors goes well together or whatever I'll take it.

Has anyone tried the new Matte-tallics from TF? I wanna try but not sure if it’s worth it. The rose gold packaging is gorgeous and I think ‘Sugar Kisses’ is really pretty (plus one of the cutest shade names ever lol) but I’m scared I’ll look like one of those gross drag-makeup, metallic everything instathots. I just want a cute pale pink for everyday wear so I hope it looks more glittery than metallic-y because it kinda looks like that in pics.
I have to pull a few strings to get stuff shipped to here from the US and shipping is insane so I need to be strategic about when and what I get from there lol

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 have a brush like that so I'll look into it. Thanks.>>85720
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. It's a Becca concealer btw, I don't know if this is a good one or if I should get something better once I finish this one.

Concealer is thicker than foundation, it's used to spot conceal imperfections and to brighten up the face.

The essence metal shock shadows are a cheaper dupe of the stila ones. They aren't identical - the stila ones have more of a shift to them- but they're good for the price.

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.

My first lashes were the ardell demie wispie, they're kinda dramatic if you have tiny eyes and almost no lashes but I still find them natural looking, I find cutting them in half make them fit your eyes better.
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.

I've been goggling and there was tons of them a few years ago but most seem to have been discontinued. I remember them being popular for a while before color balms/chubby stick knock offs became the new in thing. This kiko one still seems to be in production: https://www.kikocosmetics.com/en-gb/make-up/lips/lipsticks/Long-Lasting-Colour-Lip-Marker/p-KM002010131
Etude House "Rosy Tint Lips" -N°5 Baby Peony
from the Sleeping Beauty 2013 collection
It's a feminine light pink shade (just like your pic), very pigmented, good staying power and a soft scent of roses. I have one and love it.

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.
Oh I plan
on it. My airlines let me take 2 bags and I'm bringing the bare minimum with me and they'll be filled when I'm coming home lol. My first purchase will be sunscreen, I can't wait.

Do you guys have any recommendations for aegyo sal? Not the ugly glittery Korean style but the more natural Japanese one
i get ipsy and love it a lot! i think i've been subscribed for 9 or 10 months and i'm pleased with the things they've sent me. there have only been 2-3 products that were definite "no"s from me, but only because i didn't like the color.
a primary complaint from people seems to be repetitive products/colors, but it doesn't bother me much. ipsy sends me a shitton of blushes and lip colors, but those are my favorite products anyway so it feels like a bonus rather than a repeat.
nyx duo eyebrow and eyelash gel is pretty nice, goes on clear too.
off topic of that: ever since i got pregnant, i've broken out and had red marks and pimples everywhere and my normal cetaphil wasn't working. went and bought "dark angels" from lush and it's the only thing that has actually helped me out!

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.
My nasolabial folds aren't a bone structure problem though, I didn't have them until I started smoking cigarettes. I quit smoking and have been trying to fix this shit for over two years. Since I've found a solution that works, it isn't a waste of money? Sorry I triggered
you for whatever reason.

then why does it change with age….bone structure from 20 to 25 doesn't seem to change much but skin texture certainly seems to. i know some people have very visible nasolabial folds even when they're really young, which is from bone structure, but most people barely have them until their skin starts to age. you're saying that's bone structure too?
File: 1534048888652.jpg (1.27 MB, 3264x2464, Rafaela-Nasolabial-Fold-Reflec…)
no, because you get old everything in your body and face starts to sag due to many reasons you cannot control. You're not "ageing" in your 20's, jfc. Skincarefags are braindead.
>most people barely have them until their skin starts to age
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
Look at this picture and see what causes them. Those aren't wrinkles you're fixing with skincare mumbo jumbo lel.

Did you read the grey box though? It even includes brands whose parent companies test on animals.
Honestly I think the only safe bet for cf and eventually vegan products in Japan is LUSH. They don't sell to China mainland.
Their products break me out though. I'm going to Japan as well but I'm not hoping to only buy vegan, cruelty free, not sold in countries that test on animals products because it's not feasible.
Thanks for the recs!
For now I'm only using aloe vera gel as a moisturizer after a regular toner and serum. I'm not sure if it's a good idea but it's been working well for me.

For dark under eyes, I really like the Nyx HD concealer. Cheap and lasts pretty good on oily skin if you set it with a bit of powder. For pimples I'd recommend a good pot concealer. Mac is one of the best, it's a little more expensive, but worth it.

Anyone tried the new too faced collection? I’m in Europe so gonna have to wait a while
Nyx literally put out a new foundation line recently. Can't Stop, Won't Stop it's called. It has VERY pale shades, maybe look into that.
It's also priced at 15 bucks, so can't go wrong with that.
Rewievs say it's more medium-coverage than full, but it still seems good.
Mehron celebre goes very light, maybe because they make theatre makeup as well.
I tend to prefer mixing white foundation with more popular brands though, mac nw10 1:1 with illamasqua or nyx is perfect for me. It's a good way to use up the orange mistakes you bought too.
It's all FDA approved, it's just cheap. They carry a bunch of other well known cheap brands as well as their own stuff. Quality is hit or miss. Basically cheap drugstore tier. I've gotten lashes, a sponge (the pink charity one), a white concealer, liquid eyeshadow, lipgloss, face masks and makeup bags from them and most of it is fine. The liquid eyeshdow was a bitch to remove so I haven't used it again, but otherwise it was okay. The lashes, concealer, lip gloss and sponge are the only things I liked enough that I'd repurchase. I use the concealer to lighten up foundations, I don't know how the formula would work actually concealing. I hear the liquid lipsticks and the santee eye primer are good.
It’s shit, did nothing and smudged on my bottom lashes pretty much after an hour. Drugstore ones that’s far better is lash paradise by L’Oréal or Essence lash princess (orange one)
If you really want to splurge I’d recommend benefit they’re real
I love the way it makes my lashes look when I first apply it but after awhile it flakes off. I've had better luck with the smaller tubes tho.
I really like Benefit Roller Lash, gives me that nice volumized look without all the flaking. I've only ever tried the smaller tubes tho and I've heard some less than great things about the full size.

I have acne but hate the feel and look of heavy makeup, I just use hard candy glamoflague concealer and blend it in real good and use it as foundation, it doesn't look the best but it does the job, I'm extremely pale and most foundations that come in the lightest colors look orange after they oxidate, I'm also poor and don't wanna spend 50 dollars on foundation kms
I also really like korean makeup but most bb and cc creams don't come in light shades as light as I am

What do you guys think of The Balm? I have enough makeup to last me a while but there are things I have that I don't like that much so I'm thinking about buying new stuff. I'm interested in the Hot Mama blush/eyeshadow, Marie-Louminizer highlighter and maybe one of the nude eyeshadow palettes because it might be on sales soon in a store I like.
Also, one of my palettes just broke right now. It was on a table and I have no idea why it fell, I'm so frustrated because only my favorite shades are broken. I thought I was going to have a heart attack when I saw this.

Are you talking about this sort of eyeshadows? I never saw these ones in store so I never tested them but that's good to know. I already have another palette that I use from time to time (not counting the now fucked up palette) so getting another one isn't a priority.

Has anyone tried their Lash Slick mascara?
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.
Oh. Shit. I'm a dumbass, I thought it was phrased oddly but I'm kind of in that field so that's where my mind went.
In that case >>95639
get yourself a good primer, and a finishing powder will probably be a must
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.
As for powder I like anything from Laura Mercier or BareMinerals.

Any suggestions for a good mascara (euroanons?) waterproof, if possible
Mine always end up looking like pic related: long, but not full and unnaturally straight. For some reason my upper and lower lashes always interwine, especially in the outer corners.

I love nyx eyeshadows and I use their skin color eyeshadow primer too. I’ll attach pic related of a palette I use but the one for Brown colors!
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.
Do any of you think https://findation.com/
is accurate? I only had two different foundations to use to find a match with other brands, including one that's too light now that I tanned.

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.
File: 1542393814119.jpg (84.86 KB, 642x640, 20181116_194053.jpg)
I usually put this cream for sensitive skin on my nose before bed and all's good.
This is kind of a local product so idk if it's sold outside, but try finding similar creams.
My t-zone has no problems except it's prone to being oily due to my skin type especially on my nose. I also don't really use a lot of foundation… I use about one pump. Now that you mentioned it my skin type and the little amount of foundation I put on could be why I have this problem.
As for primer preferences, I'm open to pretty much any so tinted ones are OK. A matte one would be amazing! Never tried any primer so I'm not sure which brand works well for my face and which doesn't, except for Too Faced's.
Patchiness on my t-zone especially nose is my only current concern. It gets patchy and a little greasy after just 1-2 hours outside.
I've been getting more cystic acne and now that it's cleared up due to hormonal cycles, I'm getting eczema outbursts. It seems like I'm getting irritation by my braline so maybe detergent is part of it.
Do any anons have eczema? How do you cope with yours?
Mine is pretty mild all things considered, but I still hate it. It's ugly and uncomfortable. I've been trying to use oatmeal, laying off the retinol, using gentle cleansers, lotion and oils, etc. and overall just trying to give my skin a break.>>101373
I tried Nars Smooth & Protect primer and like it a lot. It has decent SPF and feels soft but not greasy. Someone said my face looked paler with it on but maybe I just was applying my makeup badly so idk. If you have the cash and live in the US, go to Nordstrom or Sephora and try out different primers.

Does anyone have any recommendations for make-up that would actually flatter me? I have natural hair similar to the pic related.
Same anon >>105678
here but you can never go wrong with a soft look as a redhead. Most of the products she's using are outdated but it's not hard at all to find very similar products. You can even do a thin layer of brown liquid eyeliner if you need it.
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?

This might be a stupid question but does lining your lower lashline with a dark color actually make your eyes look smaller? I feel like everyone is just repeating this because beauty gurus are saying it, but in my opinion it makes your eyes stand out more.

Looks good with pro makeup looks, but you shouldn't really do it in everyday makeup, definitely ages you, and since it's a dead trend, makes you look trashy most of the time

yikes theres so much delusion itt
to answer the question, it makes your eyes pop, but also makes them look smaller. choose your preference.
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

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.

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)

I’m looking into investing in an eyeshadow pallette for first time and I’m looking to weigh some possibilities! I usually wear only wear minimal makeup paired with dark lipsticks, but am wanting to start experiment with some eye looks. I love the colors of this Black Moon pallette, but am unsure if I’m willing to drop the $50 for it just yet. Are there any nice quality, earth toned pallettes that you gals love?
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!

Is there anyone who knows if these are different apart from the packaging?
they do different things and have different ingredients.
honey girl is light to medium coverage with brightening. has royal jelly and is super moisturizing for sensitive skin type.
deep ocean girl is medium coverage with ocean plant extracts, high whitening, UV and wrinkle protection, and light moisturizing for normal to oily skin type.
radiant girl is light coverage with tiger lily extract which hides blemishes and is super brightening for normal to sensitive skin type.
lofty girl is full to medium, with plant and flower extracts less moisturizing for normal skin type.

Seconding this for formula, but I have a neutral undertone and I still feel like the lightest shade leans SLIGHTLY yellow. Nothing too crazy (like every light too faced shade ever made) but I do wish it was a TOUCH pinker. But honestly, it's worth working with. I was surprised by how nice this looks on my skin.
Tartes rainforest of the sea foundation has some really nice light shades too, if you're willing to spend more.

I'd like to achieve a soft and cute makeup look like pic related in these orange/coral tones. Any product recommendations?
Search on YouTube for Glossier makeup tutorials. A lot of them have a very similar look to >>112657
. You can also search keywords like "soft", "aesthetic", "blushy", "peachy", etc.
Janna Tew, Joanna Spicer, Rachel Tee Taylor, whyyen and violet_fr are some beauty YouTubers I like that do more toned down, soft and pretty looks.
Most Korean makeup tuts feature looks like this afaik. You do need a really good base (ie good skin, foundation that looks good on you, concealer that isn't shitty etc) for the look to actually work, do bear that in mind.
The coraly shit is very delicate and soft so you need the skin to be able to complement that.
Are you sure it's not the way you're removing
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.
I know, I did find a lot of korean tutorials on similar looks, but never anything in english or on white features. What's working on them, probably doesn't work for me.
And all american tutorials who've used this colour sadly are way too much insta baddie

hi guys, wanted to share a really cheap and high quality product I found by complete accident
I got sunburned on vacation and picked this up at the health food store right next to my hotel
it has worked wonders for my skin (not just sunburn) and I have been wearing it as an add-in with my normal routine
it's got retinol, niacinamide, vitamin C & E in it
like $9 a bottle depending where you get it from
I feel you. I live in a thrid world shithole and we don't have any official makeup stores for international brands, not even drugstore brands. We even get a lot of counterfeit maybelline/loreal/wet n wild, and it's really difficult and pricey to get the real thing.
It's frustrating to me that i, -living in a country with far less income than a first world country- have to pay at least twice as much for basic makeup/skincare products, and with the risk of getting a fake.
Where do you live anon?
I don’t wear makeup anymore and will be willing to send you all of my stuff that I haven’t even used
> I also came from a 3rd world eurofucjed place so I feel this
Any rec's for matte blush (preferably from drugstores)? It's crazy hard to find one even google has failed me>>114298
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
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.

How to do light brown painted/sculpted brows like this girl? (Asking as someone with dark brows)
File: 1559086086538.jpg (13.86 KB, 300x299, s_5b4ba5a612cd4a0bbf82d7e4.jpg)
generally, when you put on falsies you need to blend them with your natural lashes by using mascara. Maybe try some ardel natural 108s and use a light hand with the mascara, or use a clear one.
So this is what it looks like? I can see now that the eyelashes are not properly blended. Thanks!>>115735
I expected individual lashes to look natural without applying mascara. Or maybe just a little bit and not a lot? I don't even mind eyeliner that's the funniest thing. it is just that all mascara coated lashes to me look like so called spider lashes even if it's properly applied. 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.
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.

you sound like you're asking the impossible tbh. you just cannot get a mascara that isn't at least a tiny bit clumpy. maybe look into getting a tint and lift?
are you legit retarded? >pls suggest something to put on my skin so it wouldn't look like skin but without it looking like I have something on my skin uwu
just use matching shades and light hand and primer or don't use face makeup at all
If you haven't liked the look of foundation that you've tried in the past it was probably too high coverage. You'd probably like a light coverage tinted moisturizer. Some good options:
Pixi Gel Tint
Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint
Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer
Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue
Erborian CC Cream

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.

Your writing skill leaves something to be desired anon, it's like you are throwing topics together and nothing makes sense
First paragraph>Seem offended at implication you get dollarstore foundation>I got bb cream at the dollarstore and it's great
Next paragraphs: apparently applying mascara correctly takes 30 minutes
>>115945>Next paragraphs: apparently applying mascara correctly takes 30 minutes
Maybe I was explaining to you why I kept asking for pictures since I asked pictures of women wearing falsies AND pictures of women wearing mascara? If it takes 30 minutes I meant falsies and not mascara. That would take me back then 5 mins btw lol.>at implication YOU GET dollarstore foundation
How could I seem offended if I said I actually bought it in the next line? I was more asking why the hell it looks cakey on famous people even though they wear burandos or whatever and have an experienced MUA as applicator.
Whatever, soft eyelashes are genius and someone needs to invent them, whether just falsies or some liquidy shit or both so I don't know why you're being very aggressive.
>>115937>So those professional MUAs for celebrities are using dollarstore products?
in a lot of cases, yes. these are highly skilled professionals applying makeup to hot people and constantly retouching it if it gets messed up.>When my friend got married she hired a quite respected in my country makeup artist and she developed mouth lines at the end of the day.
that is completely normal with heavy foundation or powder and to be expected. >I bought during my break time a bottle of BB (or CC?) cream at dollarstore because it was near.
unless it is color adapting it's probably the wrong colour for you. >I'm still wearing it and no lines.
yes, because you aren't wearing heavy foundation or powder.>I assume a double layer of that should be applied under eyes as concealer? I did that.
don't do that. it will look cakey.>It doesn't look disgusting, but also not pretty. I like a soft look on lashes.

Okay? wtf…>But I wanna look my best, hence why I wanna wear make-up.
It is a skill, and you need to invest time into learning it. Being a bitch to people trying to give your stupid ass help is not going to help. Look at tutorials for beginners on youtube or reddit.
>>115951>I don't like to humblebrag at all tbh, but I just look sometimes in the mirror and see an amazing person with always perfect makeup minus mascara (I was lying about wearing no makeup to appear humble)
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.

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.

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?
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.
Thank you. I don't know if I will ever feel more comfortable with the way I look but just looking at the nice colors lipsticks have helps a bit haha.
Also guys I wonder if I could sort of close the big gap between my lips with fillers/hyaluronic acid? I noticed that costs around 450 in this country and lasts for a year which isn't too bad, I'm poor but it might be worth saving up for if it would help? I also generally have a pretty small mouth anyway..

Can someone tell me how to achieve this type of brows or at least what to search for?
Or do they have to be naturally like this? (not counting products)
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? Pain, cost, do people find it hideous and judge/question it etc?

just posting to let everyone know i recently switched to the momo puri line. i highly recommend it. it touts antimicrobial, elasticizing and tone improvement. even in just 2 weeks i've seen major difference in my skin texture. it has peach ceramide and contains an enterococcus faecalis ferment, so it's essentially peach yogurt for your face. it seems good for all skin types, but may not work for super oily or super sensitive skin.

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.

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.
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).

Pale, cool toned skin anon here.
Citrine is a little rosy but I find it to be close to my lip color, with satin mauve being the best mauve. Nyx is nice too, just a little more dusty. I like drugstore because I can try out more colors without feeling regretful.

Semi-related but the Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil in Cool Grey is a good one for ashy, mouse-blonde hair. I mix it with the ELF pencil in Blonde and it's so good. It took a lot of time and money and busted brows before I finally found something ashy enough for me. Make sure to use an extremely light hand with the Grey pencil bc it can easily look black.

I've used e.l.f.'s 3-in-1 mascara and it's pretty decent. Cheap, too. It did not smudge or flake BUT the tube formula can be a pain in the butt to remove. You end up picking the mascara off of your eyelashes.

I did this and it worked wonders! Bless you anon.
Saged but no. Its just that chemical exfoliation is more popular.
Personally, many chemical exfoliants dont work for my skin so i just use scrubs and im fine.
No one talks about chemical over exfoliation lol it basically ruins your skin barrier

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?
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!!!

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.
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.
File: 1573171692099.png (186.33 KB, 790x482, NjZ77AP.png)
i alternate between a combo of pic related throughout the day. i do a lip scrub once or twice a week but most of the ones i've tried have all been pretty similar so i don't have a specific recommendation there.>>126868
how old is the foundation? >>126877
if it's only one shade off you could only use it for slight brightening at best tbh.
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.
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.
If you are able to post a picture of your eye makeup for a better idea of what might be going wrong, it would help.

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.
There are a lot of ways you can try to do it so I'll link you some videos.https://youtu.be/brJuhC9Nfeo
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.
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.

i personally only wear sheer red lip tints, my favourite was revlon balm stain in romantic but that's discontinued…
i heard good things about this brown lip stain
My eyes are like that too and follow this guy's hooded eyes tutorials- and it really worked for me, and I finally had a somewhat decent eye makeup. Takes a bit of practice though.
Also, you can't do the traditional wing with hooded eyes. You should look for videos on YouTube, there's plenty!
That's how I figured out how to apply eyeliner for eyes like mine.

herione make makes a remover that's specially designed for their mascara. i got it at my makeup store as a set but they sell it by itself. pic related. get that or the bifesta eye makeup remover.
gentle reminder to buy on amazon at your own risk. amazon prime/amazon fulfilled products don't go through any kind of extra tests etc. they are just bought wholesale from popular suppliers.
Set it with powder although it might affect its dew. Use a pink highlight on top to get the dew back.
I also love cream blushes but they never last on my skin
I have two and wash them with soap after I use them. Are you supposed to do it differently?
I could do with one tbh, the second I got was in a brush set.

speaking of beauty blenders, are the actual branded beauty blenders (that I've seen for around £17) actually any better than a normal, cheaper sponge? I don't really want to pay all that, would buying this one from nyx for £7 be a decent alternative?
basically I'm asking are all makeup sponges created equal?
It has to be soft. I bought a cheap one once cause I thought it'd work just as mine cause it's just a sponge lol
but it like being socked in the face. It was like i worked in the mail office and my face was the mail being stamped.
is this a troll lmao? 40 dollars for one ounce of product is insane. Most fiscally responsible adults can't afford regular splurges like that. >>133055
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.
(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.
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>>133055
what's wrong with too faced as a brand?
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?

Probably the only 2 palettes I bought mostly because they look good and not because that’s what I use for makeup. Seems like I will have to push my boundaries with these.
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.
This is one of my favorite pencils, I also used the benefit brow pencil for awhile but found that this one gives you a lot more control.
I have super dark black hair so the darkest one fits great.
Can I get some recommendations for non-instagrammy, lighter makeup channels that are still unique and don't always go for the no makeup look? I like something a bit more unique and bold but not full on drag queen like NikkieTutorials
Examples that I like are:

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
- Peach C Soft Coral
I know I should go at kbeauty but I can't really order at oversea shops at the moment, but I can save enough to buy at a store in my country (EU).
I hate Reddit but you should check r/OliveMUA since you seem to be fair olive. They have multiple threads dedicated to olive foundations – that's how I've found some of my matches as a light warm olive.
Anyway. Do any anons prefer NARS Soft Matte concealer over their Radiant Creamy Concealer? Cannelle is my perfect shade and there's seemingly no dupes for it. I'm running out of my current tube of RCC and wanted to try something new.

I'm also unsure how I could use makeup to de-emphasising my square face and recessed jaw since I hate that aspect of my appearance
Hey anon thanks for suggesting Glossier - my package arrived today and it's perfect, exactly what I was going for. Looks like real skin and doesn't suffocate me. <3>>138665>>138659
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. Maybe I'm sensitive to a certain ingredient. Now I wish younger me experimented with different brands because I would have avoided years of painful eyes.
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
Maybe try tutorials for deepset eyes too?
I'm in the same boat and damn it's fucking retarded how much more difficult it is to do your makeup + most of those tutorials are made by people who don't even have hooded eyes

I have the glossier brow brush thing and it works really well
I used to put hairspray in an eyebrow brush lol
yeah my brows are full but they lay really straight, I love the look of them brushed up but the gel I have the minute (body shop gel I bought on whim) is trash and holds them for like 20 seconds. thanks for the recc, will look into this pencil>>139205
is that the boy brow? been thinking of trying it so ty
Have you tried using bar soap anon? Starts around 23:30
Idk how different it is from using gel soap (haven't tried that personally) but it's worth a shot if you have a bar laying around!
Highliner by Marc Jacobs, that thing stays on so long and has been the only eyeliner to not irritate my eyes when applying to the water line.
Don't know if they have white but they have very light colors

File: 1590175667444.jpg (268.1 KB, 2048x1536, PC110111 (2).JPG)
Is this hazel, or green?
I think physicians formula had a good plumping gloss, I got it years ago though so idk if they still make it.
The elf one works pretty good too but there isn’t much product in the tube, colourpops plumping gloss is also good and is only $8
I'd call it green. I feel like hazel would need a bit more brown.
But depending on light and makeup it could probably look either way. It's super pretty

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.

I usually go for NYX Jumbo Eye stick in Milk: budget friendly and pretty long lasting.

I have biig circle lenses nostalgia, I know it's absolutly out of trend to wear them as daily contact lens, but it's been 5 years that i stopped wearing them and I miss it.
I was a huge fan of big diameters, but my go to were the Geo Bella Brown, I clearly remember that everytime I wore them, people were complimenting my eyes or saying shit like "you look so pretty today"
I might give up and order a new pair even tho there's no way it doesn't fuck up your eyes on the long term kek

korean lenses have come a long way since 5 years ago. They have phosphorylcholine lenses now, and I wear them daily.

Now that it's been two years since the last person asked if anyone has used magnetic lashes, I am once again asking, has anyone used magnetic lashes?
I'm looking into them as I'm tired of the fucking glue and they're kinda pricey. I don't mind spending extra if they're worth it, but there are so many brands to consider. I'm looking between LashLiner, Glamnetics, and MoxieLash. Attached pic is 'Nighttime Kit' from MoxieLash and currently at $144

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
- 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.
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

Opinions on L'oréal's C'est magic BB cream? Tried it in the store and looked great but would like to hear further opinions

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).
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!
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

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?
I was going to give you advice for oily eyelids but I just reread that you're tightlining. Do you mean you're actually putting it on your upper waterline or just very close to/in between your lashes on your eyelid?
Maybe look into getting permanent eyeliner, it can be very subtle if done well.

Sorry for the lack of clarity, yes, I apply directly to my waterline not only my eyelids. If I only put liner on my eyelids then I get a gross gap like in pic. I also see tons of people apply directly to the waterline without issue so there must be some way to make it work? Or are they just lucky and have really dry eyes? Kek
