What are everyone's thoughts on the constant, out-of-season releases big makeup brands seem to be doing? This Too Faced palette is considered part of their Fall collection but was released before Summer even started.

I personally don't get why they bother with the seasons anymore and should just announce them as their bimonthly release.

Anyone know a good black liquid eyeliner that flakes off (kinda like latex) instead of smudging, and can be shipped to Australia? Kinda like the Velvet eyeliner I got from Daiso, but without the glitter.
>>
>>9527566
I'm not sure it it's exact but I use Stila's liquid eyeliner and it stays on pretty well but at the end of the day I notice more "flaking" in a few patches than racoon eyes

>>9527606
Tried Stila a while back and it didn't last very long, unfortunately. Thanks anyway though!

Not too sure about flaking? But Priceline carries essence stuff and their liquid ink eyeliner is quite nice and super cheap.

While I think there are some, the thing happens where they want to be sold in China and so the Chinese government tests their products on animals.

Repost from the old thread!
Foundation rec? Cruelty free,around nw15(from looking at swatches). Oily skin,light-medium coverage. I'm in Spain so some US brands aren't so easy to get here.
>>
>>9527506
I don't care about seasons because minus winter all brands release the same shit. It would be awesome if fatal themed makeup was actually Halloween themed or with pumpkin or warm brown colors. If spring themed makeup was actually floral and pastel. But no, the only season any brand focuses on is winter, and around summer they'll release a bronzer. Big whoop.
>>
>>9527566
Nyx has black eyeliner in matte and shiny. It never smudges throughout the day and there's only minimal flaking around the edges
>>
>>9527699
Currently I'm using Tarte B.B cream as foundation cause while it is a B.B cream, it offers a lot of coverage for my mild acne scars and discoloration

Yeh. Boring, generic, and cheap in terms of quality. They're working on a Clover palette and while the packaging does look cute, I doubt the color payoff will be worth it.

No nail thread so I'll post here.

Wtf are these little bubbles?? It happens to all my nail polish regardless of brand. I use Zoya base and top coat but they're kind of old so I think I need new bottles. Any recommendations for good base or top coats?

>inb4 ur nails look like shit
I know
>>
>>9527887
Did you try going without your base coat and see if that made it smoother?
>>
>>9527887
Do you shake the bottles before use? That tends to cause bubbles. If there's separation of the polish, it's best to gently roll it in your hands to mix it up.

I've yet to find a holy grail basecoat, but I really like Essence's XXXL Gel Shine topcoat.
>>
>>9527873
The colors are a disaster. Too Faced has never been able to pull off a pigmented bright shade to save their lives. This will be a disaster. I'm ready for it to crash and burn in the beauty blog reviews.
>>
>>9527887
Do you shake your nail polish bottles before application? If so, you're letting tiny air bubbles mix in with the polish. The bubbles may not be obvious during application, but they will rise to the top as it dries. This could also be old polish though.
>>
>>9527730
Does it work well for lower waterline wear? I can't seem to find anything that isn't super irritating that has life to it. Even the really irritating ones get washed away when they make me tear up.

you can't use liquid eyeliner for waterline. it has to be pencil or maybe gel

It looks like they made a shade based off of pee.

liquid foundation is really yucky so ill move on to stick.

is it alright to use a bigass, fluffy powder brush to spread around the stick foundation?

or should i still use the foundation brush?
>>
>>9527685
Lunatick Labs has great eyeshadow and contour palettes, Cryptic Cosmetics for basic gothy staples (no black yet tho), seconding Black Moon, they're my favorite matte liquid lipstick and Gloom is my go-to nude. Makeup Monsters has a good range of unique colours of liquid lipsticks. Obviously Kat von D is a staple, but her eyeshadows/lipsticks live up to the hype imo.

>>9528089
Use a dense flat head foundation brush. You will ruin your powder brushes if you use cream products on them.

Need help, gulls.

Lately when I apply my makeup, it's looks super.. mask like? It's almost cakey. I want something closer to a dewy, glowing complexion, but after makeup I have this flat, dimensionless one.

Here's my routine:
Maybelline Baby Skin Primer
Missha's Signature Complete BB cream in #13
Drug-store concealer for dark circles
E.L.F. Correcting Powder in Cool
Some basic e.l.f. blush that doesn't suit my skintone (I know I have to change this one)
Clear eyebrow gel
Hypoallergenic mascara (in black, trying to find a good brown one)

What should I change? I'm always sure to moisturize and use sunscreen before applying makeup. I was thinking of adding a highlighter and searching for a BB cream that is lighter and dewy, since the Signature Complete is rather heavy (but the only bb cream pale enough for me.) I'm very pale, cool toned, with slightly dull skin that I'm trying to improve with better skincare. Is it just my skin? Is my application wrong? Please help.
>>
>>9528226
I think it might be the Missha's BB cream. I used to use their perfect cover BB cream and it definitely makes skin look a bit more dull and cakey. I never used the Signature Complete BB cream though, but try finding some other bb creams.
>>
>>9527889
I haven't yet but I will try that next time I do my nails.

>>9527897
>>9527902
I do! Old habit I need to kick but I shake the bottles all the time. I remember a bit from RuPaul's Drag Race saying to never shake the bottles but to roll them instead. I'll try not shaking them next time to see if it helps.
>>
>>9528107
Is there one you would recommend?
>>
>>9528250
I think that may be the culprit as well. Or, at least, part of the problem.

Are there any sheer-, dewy looking BB creams you all would recommend? I don't really like wearing foundation.
>>
>>9528083
Ooh is a liquid, I thought it was pencil in that case anything you would recommend?
>>
>>9528226
Try a BB pact instead of cream?

I'd recommend the Sigma F80 Flat Kabuki brush. Regular price is $25 USD, but you can get a coupon for $10 off if you sign up for their e-mail.

I like to splurge for dense brushes. I'm sure you could find a cheap dupe, but I've enjoyed all my Sigma stuff and if something goes wrong with whatever you order, you can always complain to their customer service to get a replacement.

Isn't this palette meant to be themed around the owners dog or something? I think they're donating some of the proceeds to charity but this concept overall is just really dumb to me. What makes Jerrod think people want a palette themed around his damn dog? Does it smell like his dog? It'd be cute if their quality was still good, but they've seriously gone downhill since they sold to Estee, this looks cheap and like every other palette of theirs, only this time with a chalky looking green and piss yellow thrown in.
Same with the glitter palette >>9527506 it sounds good in theory but all the swatches look horrendous. I thought these would be pressed glitter pigments but they're just chunky glitter eyeshadows iirc.
>>
this worth it?
>>
>>9528327
get moonchild if you like the colors. you get way less product in the alchemist palette and it's not worth it
>>
>>9528226

How do you apply the BB cream? Have you ever tried applying with a damp sponge before?
>>
>>9528226
A damp sponge will help thin out the BB cream. Missha is more on the medium coverage end than light, so you might want to go for another BB cream entirely. Asian Beauty on reddit has a list of matches for Missha #13. I think Espoir's lightest shade in their cushion is usually said to be just as light, but I'm not sure about the texture/coverage as I've never used it. I also sometimes mix my BB creams/foundations with moisturizer on the back of my hand when I want a lighter, dewier complexion.

Powder will also make your face more dimensionless, so use as little of it as possible and go for a dewy setting spray. I like Nyx's for a drugstore option, but UD is always good.

Anyone here bought this liptint? It's from the wonder fun park collection from etude house.

I'm asking because I bought the caffeine soda one and it doesn't look like photos at all. It's a cute color, but I expected something slightly different.

Since pic related has a very unusual color, I was considering to give it a try.

Also, I welcome any liptint recs. I'm looking for more different tones besides the standart red wine/pink/orange.

Saying that because I been trying some new brands and tones and all of them look too similar, almost the same liptint.

Thanks in advance anons!
>>
>>9528366
What's your skin tone and price range? I'm pretty pale, and my favorite highlighters are the Becca shimmering skin perfector in pearl and the shade "Giza" in the Juvia's Place masquerade palette.
>>
>>9528348

Espoir porcelain has a gorgeous finish and is lighter than Missha #13 but the undertone is different. It's way more warm-neutral- Missha #13 is straight up grey pink.

I'm trying to think of other options for for pale cool/pink- I'm very yellow toned, unfortunately, so I go for the opposite. Hm. Skin 79 green, MUFE Y205 (I've never tried R210, the lightest pink shade they carry, but Y205 straight up looks PINK on me)...
>>
>>9528414
Really? Thanks for the info. I'm too yellow for Missha but I haven't bit the bullet on Espoir in case it turns out that same greige color. I'll have to check it out.
>>
>>9528226
I used to use Missha and I hated the grey undertone. I find Klairs Illuminating Supple BB cream to be really good. It doesn't have a grey undertone. It comes in one shade and it is supposed to adjust to fit skin tones (only light ones I think), and it works for my pale neutral skin. It's not drying, a little bit dewey, but not as dewey as Missha which was actually too much for my combo skin.
>>
>>9528313
>Isn't this palette meant to be themed around the owners dog or something?
Yep! Based on what I've seen in Insta previews. I mean, I love animals and Clover is a cute dog (chihuahuas with T H I C C necks are cute in a silly way IMO) but I feel like all these colors have been released already. And the names?? Some of them are cute but lol at "Good Boy" being the piss yellow.

>sounds good in theory but all the swatches look horrendous
One of the beauty bloggers I follow said the palette swatches terribly but with the right primer and finger application, it worked for her. I don't like glitter so I'm not going to even bother but if a product doesn't swatch well there's no way it's going to sell well.

What's the best gold highlighter on the market right now, gulls? I'm considering a few (like pic related) but would like some other opinions.

I'm fair skinned but not looking for subtlety. I want a noticeable gold shine on my cheekbones for a cosplay.

Please drink more water if your pee is that color.

If you want powder, go with Becca If you are cool with liquid go with Cover FX.
>>
>>9527887
Along with rolling it, make sure you're letting the polish dry in between coats.
I don't know how long you wait until you paint the next coat, but happens to me all the time when I try to rush the process.

Also, how old is old?

>>9528642

I don't know how fair-skinned you are, but I felt like that highlighter was too dark/pigmented for me. For reference, around or below an NC5 I think?
>>
>>9528345
>>9528348
I will definitely try applying with a damp sponge instead of a foundation brush. And I will also try mixing it with my daily moisturizer!

If that doesn't work, I will be on the hunt for another BB cream. I don't mind mixing a bit of white foundation in it if the cream is too dark, just in case.

What is the best BB cream for very sensitive skin? Any favorites? Maybe one with a peach/pink undertone instead of a yellow one.
>>9528557
Thank you! I will look into it. I'm like an NC5 or NC10, so sometimes one shade fits all products are still too dark.
>>
If I just want to learn the basics what should I buy? I'm a dude and know nothing about makeup whatsoever.
>>
>>9528776
For drugstore brands, I like the maybelline dream fresh BB creams – however, where I live they're only selling a bronzer one right now and I'm paranoid BB creams are on the way out. I prefer it to foundation as it's less prone to causing acne, but girls round here are cake faces so it could be my area.
>>
>>9528789
Watch some youtube makeup artists e.g. professionals like wayne goss, to get an idea of what good makeup looks like, and then start looking for products based on the look you want to make and your skin type. I personally think it's important to learn about makeup first before you go out and buy too may things that you won't use later. That said, I think the basics are:
>foundation or BB cream
>concealer
>neutral brown eyeshadow palette
>brow pencil
>some makeup brushes and a sponge
And the rest depends on what sort of look you want. Is this for everyday or cosplay/J-fashion?

I'd wear a foundation, some blush, fill in your brows so they look natural, and wear fake brown lashes. Maybe a little lip gloss but don't go crazy with anything.

Anyone else sick of too faced? All their products suck and after they screwed over Nikkie, I decided I'm never going to use them again. I have some stuff I received as gifts so I'm going to finish out those products, but I'm not going to support them anymore. It seems like all I pay for is packaging, and there's other companies like benefit and pretty vulgar who have the cute packaging and good products. With too faced, there's zero color payoff, and their eyeshadow palettes are awful. I hate seeing people say chocolate bar or sweet peach are their favorites because they're both absolutely horrible and you can tell they only like it because it's too faced.

I've been loyal of Too Faced for about 6 years, but I am cutting ties with them. Ever since they've been bought out by Estee Lauder, their marketing schemes have lacked integrity and their quality has gone to shit.

I have SO much of their makeup (born this way foundation, 5 eyeshadow palettes, 4 blushes, 4 bronzers, primers, brush set, more shit I can't even think of) because I'm trash and I like their aesthetic, but I will no longer be purchasing any more TF products from here on out. I am so fucking bitter.

(TF Sweet Peach is my favorite palette regardless of how I feel about the brand now. The colors are really beautiful for every day wear)

Also, TF is still cruelty-free, but I doubt that will stay the same. Look at MAC, they used to be CF but when Estee Lauder bought them out they started selling in China.

>>9528662
I try to wait a few minutes between each coat but sometimes I'm in a rush so that could be a problem.

I've had the bottles for 2+ years, which isn't as long as some regular color nail polish of mine but I figured base and top coats need to be replaced more often because of their formulations.

best drug store foundation for super pale ass skin?
>>
>>9528327
Absolutely not, I got it as a gift and I never use it
>>
>>9529442

Super pale ass doesn't mean much, anon. What's your undertone? What's your skin type? When you say "super pale ass" do you have any idea where you are on the MAC scale? Any foundations that sort of match that we can go off of for a recommendation?

Please be specific and don't try to say stuff like "lol I'm like paper" or "I'm translucent" or "my friends say I'm a vampire/ghost."
>>
>>9529675

Also sorry, forgot to add: what are you looking for in a foundation? Do you want a lot of coverage or something more natural? Do you want a matte finish or something dewier etc.? "Best" is very subjective.
>>
>>9529442
If you've got yellow undertones to your skin, the Maybelline FitMe Matte+Poreless in 110 is pretty decent for the price.

MAC used to be cruelty free? Sonovabitch, I was hoping they would stop being cruelty free in the future to keep up with brands like Anastasia, Too Faced, Urban Decay and Benefits. Balls.

To be honest, I never thought the too faced palettes had any good colour pay off, even before Estée Lauder. Their only palette I've really liked has been Sweet Peach, even their chocolates palette was light and difficult to blend. And the Born This Way foundation turned to dry chalk on my face, even with primer.
>>
>>9530824
Depending on your definition, Benefit isn't cruelty free. If they sell in China, which Benefit does, they're required by law to test on animals.

I just bought the teddy bear hair brushes because I'm an idiot and loved the packaging. They are the cheapest junk imaginable.

I was gifted the white chocolate palette and it's equally bad. No payoff.
>>
>>9531574
I have the brush set and I love it? It's super cute and the brush shapes are crazy useful, fibers are stiff and tightly packed and soft. I'm not crazy about their eye palettes though, the color combinations and choices are weird and I only wear earth tones. MAC on the other hand have the crappiest most expensive brushes ever. Hard scratchy loosely packed fibers that fall out with every use. I bought a stippling brush from them and every time I used it I had to pick hairs out of my foundation. Needless to say I stopped using it pretty quick. My friend who got duped into buying a concealer and brush set from them has got the nastiest concealer pot in the world because the brush just sheds into it constantly. It's this muddy cakey mess stuck with black stiff hairs. I have the same concealer and use other brand brushes and it's fine.

I'm honestly super perplexed when great make-up artists spout how good MAC's make-up is. It is literally the shittiest paint-pot level, skin suffocating, overpriced bullshit. I'd rather use Canmake or Physician's Formula.

Sorry for the late as fuck response but I completely forgot to consider the base and top coat could've been old.
I still have two OPI polishes that are 10+yrs, so yeah, 2+ for colors is completely fine as long as they're not running too thick.

Also meant to add that I don't really have a favorite base coat, but I love using Seche Vite for top coats.
>>
Are there any foundations in a shade close to NC15 that don't oxidize yellow or orange? I want to get off MAC but every alternate foundation I'be used has either made me look undead (too faced, Kat von d) or like an oompa loompa (Jane Iredale, drugstore stuff).

Right now I'm using Dior powder and I really like it but it is quite expensive so I'd prefer to not have to use all Dior if that makes sense.

I was wondering if anyone here had personal experience with weird eyes and eyeshadow

I'm a "hafu" Korean/Germanic American, I look more white than Asian but the biggest difference is my eyes. I have a huuuge epicanthal fold and I have double eyelids, but only barely. If I don't have my eyes pretty wide they uncrease. It makes eyeshadow a pain in the ass as I never know what to highlight and what to shadow. Certain online tutorials are good but most are rubbish.
>>
>>9532777
Posting your eyes might be more useful

>>9532742
Thanks I'll try that. I guess it may be a bit of trial and error too. Sorry for the dumb question.
>>
>>9529073
I am only sticking to their primers for now on. I got sucked into the sweet peach hype and caved in and bought a palette not too long ago but I can't bring myself to buy anything else. They products are just not pigmented and aren't worth the price. I feel like people only buy their products because their smell nice and the packaging.
>>9528660
I agree with buying cover Fx highlighters since they are really pigmented but make sure you blend them more than a regular liquid highlighter or else you are going to have a giant ass streak on your face.
>>9528642
Some highlighters I use are the ABH glow kit, cover fx liquid drops, wet and wild mega glo, glossier halo scope, and the Laura geller highlighting stick. Stay away from the TF highlighters like candlelight glow since they will fade away within an hour after application.
>>
>>9533109
Yeah, but it's pretty much the best you have without sampling/swatching it yourself.
There is another option for hunting around for dupes of a foundation/concealer that you already like, but that requires having something already in your correct color.

>>9532777

This doesn't make any sense for nail polish. If it's starting to go bad, just add paint thinner.

>>9534197
It's on the back of the product. However, some of these are placed so that nobody can complain about quality loos. Stuff like pressed powders can go for ages, because bacteria never go through the upper layer (scrape the first layer of and you're fine).
Face makeup with tubes and wands (mascara, lipgloss, etc) are the ones that have the highest change on bacteria development and should be looked out for.

if you just use pressed powder cause youre feeling lazy, do you still use a foundation primer beforehand?

I enjoy it and used to put on a full face every day. In college I got the satisfaction out of looking completely put-together (outfit, hair, face, etc.) plus I'd get compliments regularly.
At work, I'm stuck wearing a scrubby polo and I hate my job anyway, somehow it takes away my drive to wear full face. I feel like I'm just wasting product. So I've reduced it down to concealer+brows+highlight.
I'd probably get back into it if I got a better-paying job where I don't have a restrictive uniform.

I kinda get you. I only do the heavy shit for cosplay because otherwise I get this weird dissociative feeling. Lately I've been trying to find what specific routine causes it so I can change and avoid it, because I do legitimately enjoy the makeup process.

Another anon, but I get where you're coming from. I worked a crap waitress job where my uniform was pants and t-shirt. I hated the uniform, so I accessorized my apron and really put a lot of effort on doing my hair up really cute and applying my makeup as well as I could. It always made me feel better about wearing clothes I hated and I felt nicer about myself to boot. I got a lot of compliments too.
>>
>>9535261
I enjoy how I look with it but my skin freaks the fuck out even worse than usual when I wear it too long. I'm sure part of it has to do with not having found an alternate foundation to MAC yet but still.

I get into a situation where I hate my face without it (bad skin genetically) but it gets worse in the long run f I try to cover it.

>>9535551
I do, yes. I've found that powder doesn't last long if it doesn't have a base. Of course, you can always set it.

Maybe this belongs in the help thread but, as a guy would it be weird to walk into sephora and ask them to help me find a shade of foundation to use? I'm new to this and just want something to cover the awful acne scars and under eye bags
>>
>>9535875
No, is what most people will tell you, but it really depends on where you live. Big city? No1currs. Small town in redneck land? Some people will be weirded out. But if you do /cgl/ related activities, people will be weirded out anyway and you might as well go for it and look good.
>>
>>9535875

For what it's worth, I live in a small to mid-sized conservative city. Our little Sephora has an openly gay guy working there. I've also seen other men in our Sephora, and taken my (straight) husband there without any issues. There are never any guarantees, but chances are you'll be just fine.

>>9535261
I don't do full face every day - I had issues for years with every makeup product I tried making my acne worse which was actually related more to my (lack of) skincare routine than specific products.
I generally just get lash extensions and wear lipstick on a regular day. I only wear a full face on days off, evenings out, or city-based holidays.
>>
Can anyone recommend a decent but not too expensive brand/store for false lashes? I've never worn them before but I'd like to get a pair of black and brown ones to start using.
>>
So I bought pic related on a whim while I was out with a makeup savvy work friend who dragged me into ulta for the first time. I've basically been using it as eyeliner but it flakes after like twenty minutes. What the hell am I doing wrong?
I am literally a makeup retard, I've only ever used black eyeliner and recently found a very mild lipstick (or maybe a stain or something) I like.
I also bought a knock off chocolate palette but fuck me huge palettes are some advanced level shit I was not prepared for. How do chicks do this?!

What can I do to stop my face from looking flaky when I have makeup on?
Things I use:

>Tinted Moisturizer (Neutrogena)

You could try adding Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream to your skincare routine. I used to have bad flakiness and dry skin all over my T-zone and this stopped it entirely. It's not heavy and has just a light scent.

You can get in on eBay for about $10 in the states

I love to, but my days are so packed that I have ten minutes or less to do my face, and I might be so tired by night that I just go to bed without a nighttime routine. I don't have time for, or want to run the risk of sleeping in, heavy makeup, but I also feel very unfinished otherwise, and my coworkers are very used to me being "finished", so I've been faking a full face with minimal products I can remove quickly with a makeup wipe.

>clear, moisturizing gel sunscreen
>very blendable eyebag color correcting stick if I need it
>light brow pencil
>two blush colors to add depth, one spread broadly to "wake me up", another just on apples
>eyelash curler (been using a growth serum, too)
>deep red or plum lip tint or tinted chapstick

That's cool but annoying that you need to buy two palettes and mix them to get that effect.

You can use these over any black or brown or white or any color eyeshadow though? Over lipstick or eyeliner too, and just as regular sheer color highlight. You don't need Shade & Light in specific, it's just a demo of how they transform stuff using products KVD has.

Go to Sephora and ask for help. Alternatively, make some female friends.

Dark brown or black pencil liner, mascara, and a nude lip shade. If you don't mind skin makeup, a light coverage foundation.

Sephora really will help you out with foundation although I always get told I need to mix two shades.
>>
>>9529442
Depends on your skin type and undertone. You can try out fit me by maybeline and loreal tru match for starters. They both go pretty pale. I've tried just about every drugstore foundation that's pale enough for me. And Those 2 are probably the best ones to start with.

I'd check out NYX, they should have some colorful eyeliners.

>>9539237

If you end out having issues finding the proper hue of red, I recommend buying Ben Nye LiquiSet and mixing it with red eyeshadow. Liquiset will make the eyeshadow pigment pop and you can paint it on easily with a brush. I use Liquiset whenever I am looking for an odd eyeliner color, but it is an awesome multipurpose liquid.

don't do the red with eyeliner holy shit, that will look incredibly bad. You can tell from the figure she has black eyeliner on with lashes, and the red part is eyeshadow.

I don't normally do makeup so please forgive me.

Is there something I can throw on to smooth my complexion without knowing my exact shade of foundation? I'm not looking for a super formal professional level of quality, just asking if there is something like this that can help regardless of my specifications.

Yes, I know the best option is to go to a department store and ask for help. I'm not going to though because if I had to I'd rather just not wear anything.
>>
>>9532297
I recently switched to Lancôme foundation and it has been pretty good so far. They matched my shade and it was only $30.
>>
>>9539324
Are you trying to smooth texture or even out color? For texture try Smashbox primer. For color, try a tinted moisturizer.
>>
>>9539312
Anon is probably suggested to wing the eyeshadow like this, but I think the red eyeliner look (like your example) would be a lot more graphic and vibrant. It would probably stay on the face longer and you wouldn't have to prime it.
>>
>>9539324
Also, how rough is your complexion? If you have heavy acne/scars, you may be able to even out skintone, but no amount of product will smooth out your complexion. If your skin just has a few issues (large pores/bumps), I also recommend a primer.
>>
>>9537127
>Aloe Soothing Gel
While it smoothes the skin it doesn't actually moisture much and takes a while to soak in to the skin - Could cause flaking and stickiness

>Air Cotton Make up Base
Already has a shitton of bad reviews saying it makes make up look cakey etc
Also seems to be water based

>Color Correcting Kit
Has Silicones - Will most likely fuck up the Cotton Base and the Aloe since they are water based

>Tinted Moisturizer
Contains Sunscreen and Water
Will most likely smudge and flake all of the other products you have just applied

>Setting Spray
Don't really get the point of setting Tinted Moisturizer

I'd suggest you
-Buy an actual moisturizer that doesn't break you out, use it 2x a day, let it sit 5-10mins before applying make up and take the oil away with a split cosmetic tissue

-At night you can use Vaseline over your moisturizer to prevent it from getting on your Pillow >patch test it to prevent break outs
If it sucks Aloe mixed with a good face oil is a nice sleeping pack alternative

- Trash that Make up Base

- Use the Tinted Moisturizer first or trash it/replace with a silicone base

- Apply Color Corrector

- Apply a Powder Foundation (MAC one has high coverage without caking) or a Cushion Foundation

- Add Setting Powder if your make up creases a lot

- Apply Setting Spray

Avoid rubbing in your creams/make up cuz micropeeling and pat everything on
Maybe pick up a serum for overnight as well

I was going to purchase the lorac I hear brunch palette when it was out but there were some colors I wasn't really interested in and some of the ones I liked we're chalky/poorly pigmented.

I designed my inglot palette on beautylish because it's nicer to use than the actual brand's website
>>
>>9537122
this is a cream eyeshadow, it's made to be blended in over a primer. i've never used it, but you're probably putting it on too thick since you're trying to use it as a liner and that's what's causing the flaking.

I'd recommend Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Primer Potion or Nar's Pro-prime Eyeshadow Base.

hey gulls, i'm trying to buy a bb for myself since i've finally solved my acne problem enough to want something with light to medium coverage. the main issue i still deal with is redness, but i think a suitable primer would be the solution to that. i'm looking for something that isn't drying and that ideally contains sunscreen, though i do have an spf30 moisturizer if that isn't a thing. i've never worn anything "dewy", can anyone describe how it feels on your face? currently i own mac pro longwear foundation in nc15 and it matches pretty well, it's just super thick.

>>9539854
MISSHA M Perfect Cover BB Cream! It's a Korean BB cream that is light coverage, natural, and dewy. With a little bit of cream blush and highlighter, I glow. You can get it on Amazon (for quick shipping) or Missha's website. It's SPF 42 PA +++.

I don't even feel it on my face and it blends very smoothly. You'd probably match No. 21.

Hot damn, what lashes are those?
>>
>>9539324
This person >>9539526 is right that no amount of product will smooth out an uneven complexion from scarring. However, as someone with this issue, the skin care thread can actually help you out! Skin care can help lessen the appearance of scars which will make makeup go farther. I'd work on general skin care and treatments for scarring while using a light foundation or even a spot concealer to even the overall complexion. (Getting rid of dark and red spots will help brighten even a scarred face.) Using thick foundations and heavy primers can actually make scarring appear way worse in photos.

Although, you might not have scarring so disregard what I said.

This is more skincare related but what sunscreens do you guys use? I'm looking for sumn that is cruelty-free and not fuck greasy bc my skin is oily enough.

Paula's Choice has a sunscreen that's specifically formulated to be non-greasy, and they're cruelty-free, and though I'm not sure if that sunscreen in particular is vegan, most of their products are.

Cruelty-free sunscreen is kind of difficult because most good sunscreens are Japanese or Korean, and cruelty-free isn't really a Thing over there.

Seconding >>9539867. I would also recommend using a concealer for the redness because the BB on it's own isn't enough for me. Missha does make a nice boomer base you can put underneath the BB to make you look extra fresh and glowy. Pic related
The BB cream itself doesn't give a masky/cakey feel and I love that, but I do use a setting spray on top to help it last longer. For day to day wear I fix with NYX spray, but for more full on wear I set with a Models Prefer spray and fix with Skindivia Bridal Spray. I find that the latter technique can be a little drying so I wouldn't recommend doing it every day of the week.

In terms of primer I was quite liking the NYX Studio Perfect Primer in purple but I've recently switched to The Ordinary High Spreadability Fluid Primer to deal with my dryness. In the past I've also used Too Faced Primed and Poreless but I didn't notice enough of a quality difference between that and the NYX to justify the price (NYX is $20AUD but I normally get it on sale, the Too Faced is double that.) In terms of value and quality The Ordinary primer is awesome.

Nyx's faux black line has a beautiful dark red eyeliner.

>>9552475
Not that anon, but it's Natural Love. It's expensive and IMO unless you've never had a palette before, not worth it. I found myself not really reaching for it. The pinks tend to look all very similar, and I feel like there aren't enough mattes for my liking. All in all I reach for other palettes more.

If you think Sweet Peach is too dark for lolita, I was wondering what you're looking for? Something more sheer and buildable or something that is just a much lighter palette in general? I feel like Asian palettes are better at both in general - I bought a canmake four shade eyeshadow in Japan and for the most part it gave me very sheer, buildable shimmery pigmentation you see on so many lolitas. Maybe look into that? Can't think of any particular ulta or sephora palette that does the same thing - the trend now seems to be a hyperpigmented eyeshadow that finger swatches well - not something that translates into nice buildable eyeshadow.
>>
>>9552406
>implying simplynotlogical isn't your go-to channel for makeup tutorials
For real though, if Cristine was a makeup guru I'd watch her even more than I already do.

I enjoy watching Tati for tutorials since she really explains the products and how she's using them. I can't recommend any other channels really though because they either talk too much about everything but makeup or I can't tell if they're being honest with their filming/testimonials.
>>
>>9552406
I love sichenmakeupholic. She's the only one I'm subbed to anymore.
>>
>>9552406

I really like beautywithemilyfox and loepsie. They're more low key beauty bloggers compared to the 'yaaaass slay' style of beauty bloggers these days. I love loepsie's historically inspired hairstyles and makeup looks, and beautywithemilyfox does mostly lipstick swatches and gives really good tips on keeping your lips nice and exfoliated enough for liquid lipsticks, something I struggle with. They also both seem down to earth moreso than other beauty bloggers.

I also watch the usual K-beauty people like pony and heizle but I guess I only do it because they are asian and I'm asian - not so much for the actual vlogging style. I get bored quickly too and I tend to fast forward through their tutorials unless I'm going through it myself.

My absolute guilty pleasure is kathleenlights. She just seems really fun and energetic! A bit longwinded at times though and I don't really trust anything she reviews except for drugstore stuff. If she really recommends drugstore something, I usually end up looking into that and very few times was disappointed. Otherwise, nah lol.

>>9552673

I wish I could get over her shoulder shimmying and repeating the same videoclip throughout the video. Although I've tried contouring like her before and I looked like a dude, so maybe she's just not for me.

>>9527481 For Korean stuff, Innisfree is really really good. Klairs is amazing too if you have a lot of sensitivity. Shiseido domestic is cruelty free but I don't think it is world wide. I haven't really looked into Japanese brands much but Innisfree and Klairs seem pretty well formulated so I haven't strayed much.

I just use my Naked 2 palette for everything (gothic/classic lolita) but maybe Naked 3 would be better if you lean more to the sweet side. If you want something with cute packaging then maybe look at Asian brands.

>Recommends Tati
>Implying it isn't hard to tell if she's being honest

She's guilty of not being consistent with disclosure, too. Sometimes she'll do rigorous testing, but other times she'll do some half assed first impression. Don't get me started on her Jeffree Star nonsense. Girl sold tf out a long time ago.
>>
>>9552671
Maybe it's just my skin color but on me the sweet peach shades look like normie hooker makeup. I'd like a palette with a lot of different pink, red, orange, light nude, etc that I could ask my family for when they ask if I want anything for x holiday (so no Korean brands even though that's what I buy myself). The regular nude palettes have maybe 3 shades that are light enough and the rest make my eyes look overly contoured

Oh dang. I didn't realize. I only started following her this year and I don't often watch old videos unless it's a comedy channel. She came off as more sincere than Laura Lee (which is who I was watching the most at the time) so I started watching her instead.

that kat von d drama is oldddd but don't worry cause jeffree's always sticking his nose in new drama and that's why people hate (or love to hate) him.
he's been involved in so much drama that didn't involve him in the first place, and then he'll claim innocence in his videos saying that he hates drama and it's bc of his "depression." Really?

for good entertainment:
>Jackie Aina - actually funny and genuine
>KathleenLights - a sweetheart so it's nice to watch her if you wanna just calm down and feel good; her Kat Chats are funny though
>GinsMakeup - kind of basic/neutral/ig makeup but she can be funny

I am so glad I'm not the only person who hates Christine. Her fans are the worst too because it feels like I can't go on any video that mentions the word holographic without obnoxious comments everywhere and that fucking cd emoji. I even see that shit in CoF every now and then.

Anyways, seconding Jackie Aina (her reviews especially. I liked that she called out Tarte for a product that didn't work for her and then mentioned that they now refuse to send her free PR stuff) and PONY makeup.

I also enjoy Wayne Goss videos because he's pretty direct and can teach you basics without 13 minutes of filler chit chat.

Recommendations for foundation/powder thats more or less healthier for dry skin? I use pic related morning and post-shower but my t-zone and nasolabial area get hella dry and flaky otherwise. I feel like every time I put powder on, regardless of moisturizer and foundation, my skin just soaks up anything remotely damp.
>>
>>9556115
fair enough, I liked her older videos because she did more interesting looks. Then she got into her red/berry phase which is fine, but now she's full blown ~natural glowy no makeup makeup look~ all the time. and I ain't here for tutorials for people like Glossier models with already perfect skinnnn.

to add then more channels then:
>myeyeshadowisodd
>Allana Davison

interesting channels bc they do several looks based on one palette so you can see how to realistically get the most out of the palettes you already have.

I wish she could be more succinct in her videos. In depth discussion is good but she rambles in most of them and I lose attention halfway through. Not to mention her ridiculously long intro video.

How can I make my skin slightly more pale? I'm already pale but with summer being here my face is a bit more red. I want it to be closer to pic. Also, would dark eyeshadow create the eye-bag effect in the picture? The most makeup I've ever done is just simple foundation+concealer
>>
>>9557679
Zoeva is good and available at a lot of places now, BH cosmetics has some good ones (check reviews to figure out what is worth it), Sleek has some good ones. Morphe and CS are ok but there are better places out there.
>>
>>9557715
Use sunscreen every day, religious application.
Use concealer and foundation a shade lighter than your skin.
You will probably need a few shades of matte eyeshadow to create the appearance of dark eyebags, lighter on the middle and darker where the natural shadow under an eye bag would be. Match the shadow to what you would look like with dark eye circles from lack of sleep, generic dark brown on pale skin would run the risk of looking like you've wiped dirt under your eyes otherwise.
>>
>>9557679

Echoing zoeva and sleek makeup palettes like other anons. I would recommend Arabian Nights/Under a Spell (UK/US names respectively) or Oh So Special for Sleek. For Zoeva, I've been waiting a little bit longer because I have many similar colors, but I've heard good things about their cocoa palettes. Only other suggestion I have is colourpop. You can buy them separately, or their four color palettes are now $12 or if you are ambitious they are releasing a rose hued palette tomorrow - $16 for 12 shadows. Seriously cannot beat the last one and I have heard good things about their first palette but it did run out very quickly both times!
>>
>>9557715

Use a colour correcting primer of some sort. Normally for red, you'd use a light green to cancel that out and make yourself look paler.

Are you doing this for cosplay? If you're trying to go for something more frosty/undead, I'd add a little bit more blue in to the green.

Did any one buy from the new Colourpop release? I picked up the palette

>>9560960

I did too! On top of the yes please palette which I haven't received yet, oops.

It's ok though. Orange and red are different colour schemes, right?

inglot eyeshadows are pretty nice and you can customize your palette. i would order from beautylish instead of their brand website though

Morphe is honestly a rip off. I have one of their palettes (35W) and I was pretty disappointed when I got it - most of the colors are pretty chalky and you need to work with them to get decent color payoff. The best colors in the palette are the shimmery ones but it's not enough to make it worth it. For $20 I'd rather buy a better palette elsewhere that I don't have to try so hard to make the colors look good. There's so many amazing reviews and after trying the palette out I think people are/were overhyping them because they either want free makeup or it's just easy to hype things everyone else is raving about even if it's actually not that great.

Check out Stephanie Nicole's youtube video review on them - it's quite long (like 25 minutes I think) but it's super informative and basically goes over how Morphe is most likely a private label brand and probably uses the same company/lab as Coastal Scents. Which like, I wouldn't mind, but Morphe pretends they aren't private label and they're way overpriced for what it is. Just cut the middle man price and go directly to Coastal Scents or another similar private label brand like Sedona Lace.

If there's a palette or a brush from Morphe that you wanna try, honestly just to go to Coastal Scents website and see if it's on there - they're selling some of the same exact/extremely similar palettes for only $12 which I think is a much better price for the quality of the shadows and it's no secret that they're private label (so they're at least honest/not trying to rip you off)

I have a similar question to >>9557715. I bought a wig for a character that's a silvery blonde color ("victory blonde" from Arda). While I do have a bit of a tan from the summer, I have medium, olive toned skin. In terms of undertones I'd say I'm somewhat neutral leaning more towards warm. When I put the wig on it makes me look really orange and pink.

I've seen that Japanese skin whitening cream/makeup stuff used for cosplay, is that something worth trying or should I just color correct and get a light foundation shade? Luckily the character I'm cosplaying is pretty much covered completely (long dress and boots, gloves) except for face and neck so thats really the only area I'd need to "fix".

>>9560968
Dw anon, I got your back.
I'm pretty keen for my order to arrive since I've never bought from them before. I also grabbed some Super Shock shadows and blush to get free shipping.
>>
>>9561425

I saw some swatches and the shimmers look great, but the mattes unfortunately underperform a bit especially for colourpop. Kind of a shame.

I'm kind of a colourpop addict now haha. I love the shimmery supershock shadows! The glitter is insane and they tend to stick all day with only a bit of fallout. Which ones did you get?

That sucks, but I was more keen for the glitters so it's not the end of the world.

I bought the Quarters and Between the Sheets blushes because for some reason I own no matte blushes???
As for shadows I got the Mile High set because it was good value, High Rise, and Paradox.

So I did end up picking up this stuff, it's nice but it does make my eyes water, not really do much sting as water. What should I be using to set it? I guess I'm supposed to be priming then brushiby over but all I can find are trendy click bait articles.

Honestly, just look really hard at your face in the mirror and imagine a round "shape" or what your face would look like if it was round. In general I advice using a soft hand and placing blush on the middle of the cheeks instead of pulling it towards the temple/ear.

Other than that, to make my own face seem round I need to contour my jaw and some on my temples but this will vary depending on how your face actually looks.

I got two items in a subscription beauty box, the highlighter and the cooling water. Have not tried the cooling water on my face yet, but it feels just like a minty-ish primer on my hand. The highlighter is just ok. It's one of the better 'convenient' stick makeups I've used and the shape is perfect to highlight my cheekbones. It's not something I would pay $24 for because honestly for me once you have one highlighter you have them all, and while this is a nice champagne, it's easily dupeable.

I've heard really good things about the milk eyeshadows, but I don't get very excited over eyeshadow gel/gloop stuff because I have experienced colourpop which is already not my thing to work with. That being said, I've seen the shimmers look really intense and good.

I'll try the cooling water tomorrow if I wake up early enough and will let you know.
>>
>>9568218

apparently tarte shape tape is the bomb.

I personally like to use my shiseido concealer, but the coverage is on the sheerer side and is more of a brightener than anything.

I haven't tried it yet simply because I'm really sensitive to certain formulations, but I noticed Wet and Wild came out with a color correction make-up. The peach one is supposedly for dark circles, but they also have a yellow corrector. If it's extreme purple, orange wouldn't be the best since it still contains red. (Purple has red.) Yellow is technically what counteracts deep purple.

It's 5.99. Worse comes to worse, you could just return it if the formula doesn't work for you. In the past, I have had success using corrector that appears straight-up yellow underneath my foundation, but honestly it is a pain to find and apply.

Adding to that, when I say success with yellow in the past, I literally mean yellow. I don't mean a yellow base/tint. Picture is related to what I'm talking about. It really is a pain to apply it (don't apply it anywhere that there's no purple), and it's not really good for humid, hot days. However, it might be your only option if your bags are on par with mine.

Won't really work for cosplay, but for every-day wear I just use a bright red eyeshadow under my eyes and rock that Creepy-chan sickly look.

My hereditary circles are dark purple 'trough's. I just put a little bit of red under my eyes and it takes all of the attention away from the circles so that they're unnoticeable.

It shouldn't be bad, the Sephora near me is filled with nice people, but the MAC store is filled with nasty cunts. I prefer Ulta out of the three because someone always approaches me and asks if I need anything. Google foundations at Sephora and try to get a few you'd like to get a free sample of.

Not op but what route would produce the best lips?

>one transparent clear liner
>one flesh liner
>a few lip liners- flesh, darkpink, light pink, red, etc
>one for each lip color unless some are very similar to each other anyway

I've never use lip liners because I usually just slap on some sheer gloss and call it a day.

Speaking for nyx butter gloss, the payout is great but it tastes like shit. I'm not the type to lick my lips or anything but just applying it was really gross.
>>

NYX do have red eyeliner but I wasn't too impressed with it. It doesn't go on very smoothly so if you want to do anything more than a tiny flick and make it look polished it's a pain. I'm not sure where you live but Inglot apparently have decent colourful eyeliners. I've only used their eyeshadows & blushes but I was pretty happy with those.

I started getting into makeup earlier this year but then got kind of bored with contouring and layering products everyday and it took too much time before leaving to study, so I stopped and just went without anything. Can I go without contouring for basic everyday stuff?

I mostly just want the eyeliner and bb cream, but then I also need to put on moisturizer and witch hazel to prep my face don't I?

Just... simplest and nicest method would be good.
>>
>>9570946
contouring is absolutely not a basic, everyday look and i'm fucking sick of seeing it on teenagers on instagram. you definitely want to moisturize before putting on your makeup. wait a few minutes for it to sink in and gently dab off the excess or your foundation/bb cream won't apply evenly.
>>
>>9569558
imo clear liners only work for people who have fine lines around their mouth for lipstick to bleed into. go for something similar to the color you're going to wear on top. it doesn't have to be a perfect match as long as the colors are a similar shade/warmth
>>
>>9570963
Is the witch hazel essential do you think?
Thanks for the response
>>
>>9570997
Most people I know use witch hazel as a toner when they're doing their skincare not makeup routine, so you can definitely skip it.
>>
>>9570946

Makeup is whatever you want it to be. Contouring is absolutely not essential - I hate how it's a thing and everyone thinks looking like a drag queen is the minimum you should do (even though I like a little bit of contour from time to time). You should use a good moisturiser which can work in lieu of primers before putting on makeup.

If you're looking for a natural finish, you should check out lisa eldridge on youtube and her natural/five minute makeup routines. She's really good for giving pointers on the absolute minimum you can do for a flawless finish.

I need some questions regarding heavier amounts of make-up .
I'm putting together a cosplay of The Penguin (specifically based on his Batman Returns version) and as you can see it involves some pretty heavy make-up and prosthetics. And I don't look like him, or Danny Devito, at all.
I'm not accostumed to using make-up and I can get quite sweaty, especially since I live in Brazil and it's a tropical region. I'm fairly new to cosplay in general (it's my 5th time doing cosplay).

Are there any specific products that I should watch out for ?
Anything that will help me sweat less ?
Any make-up tips ?
I'm already going to have to wear a fatsuit because I'm 6'2ft tall and not a rotund ball of fat, and plus the character wears pretty heavy clothing.
>>
>>9571296
A high quality latex mask might be a smart idea for this one.
>>
>>9570997
i don't really think it's necessary in general unless you're naturally very oily. you run the risk of overdrying your skin if you don't really need it. a good rule of thumb is that if something makes your skin feel uncomfortably tight and stiff, it's too drying.
>>
>>9571282
no. you'll have to use colored mascara or block them out and draw them back on
>>
>>9571296
Setting sprays--like heavy duty ones used for movies would probably be extremely beneficial. I've heard amazing things about green/blue marble setting sprays but have no personal experience with them. They also make powders with anti antiperspirant in them! Use a good primer, set with setting spray in between layers, use a good spirit gum/glue to adhere your prosthetics. I would look for heavy drag queen makeup tutorials--different ball game but the products they use are extremely amazing for looks like this and are made for dancing/moving and getting warm. I've heard amazing things about the Kryolan TV Paint sticks if you're looking for foundation. Baking your face with a good powder could also be extremely beneficial for you, anon. Carrying a fan is also super helpful for me when I wear makeup during the summer time.

Can anyone give advice for a newb with makeup and fake eyelashes. I wear glasses and my insurance doesn't cover contacts. Does anyone here with glasses use fake eyelashes or is it not worth it until I can get contacts?
>>
>>9571535
I wear glasses w/ fake lashes (occasionally) but when I do I usually let my glasses fall down my nose a bit until they no longer hit the lens, which depends on how large the lashes are.
I mostly do it at cons when i've taken out my contact lenses, and honestly I rarely have any discomfort other than my lash occasionally catching on the lens.

It's definitely a lot easier with contact lenses, but fake eyelashes are cheap as hell and won't damage your lenses of your glasses so it's at least worth a shot to see how they feel for you. It really depends on how deep set your eyes are, how long the lashes are, where your glasses sit and the curvature of your lens.
>>
>>9570946
try looking into bb cushions too for quicker and easier application! don't worry about contouring, it's not at all a necessary step.
>>
>>9571535
I wear glasses and use falsies from time to time. Try starting out with shorter lashes first before going full on mink lashes. I started out with lashes from Etude House because theyre more natural and subtle so they didnt interfere with my glasses.

Does anyone here have experience with eyelid tape? I have hooded eyes and they always ruin my eyeliner and make my eyes look uneven. I have been looking into eyelid tape but I'm not sure if anyone has any recommendations on tape? Also, should I look into one-sided or double sided? What's the difference?
>>
what's everyone's favorite tutorial for applying false lashes? I bought some recently and hadn't tried them in years and somehow I completely forgot how to do it :(
>>
>>9572285
I use eyelid tape as a monolid for cosplay and special occasions, so that my eyeshadow and eyeliner are actually visible and don't smudge. I get mine from daiso and Japanese cosmetics stores and there's pros and cons to each type.

>one sided tape
Has the best staying power, you can put a tonne of makeup over them and they stay put. Disadvantage is that depending on your eye shape they may be visible when worn, and the texture of some shines out from underneath makeup.

>double sided
You press it into your eyelid to stick to surfaces of skin together to make a fold. It's less visible than one sided but sometimes I have them come unstuck during the day because eyeshadow or oil gets on the adhesive of one side. Also requires you to poke that stick thing in your eyelid.

>fibre type
Very thin adhesive strip, look it up for how to put them on. Mostly invisible and have good staying power however placement can be tricky and you have to trim the ends every time and putting scissors near your eyeball is scary.

There's also glue, which works very similarly to double sided.

I'd say start with one sided tape and see if you like the look. They're also the strongest and would probably hold up a hooded lid most effectively.

Any recommendations for foundations/bases/primers for oily skin? It is better to go with BB/CC Creams or should they be avoided altogether?
I've tried a couple of obvious foundations and primers (Rimmel and Maybelline mostly) but haven't found anything that I love.
Pic related, I'm tempted to try it but thought I'd seek the sagely wisdom of cgl first
>>
>>9575363
For the love of all that is sacred, if you have oily or combination skin DON'T USE FOUNDATION. Use skin 79 bb cream. It was created for oily and combination skin and even helps eliminating zits.

BB and CC creams are hydrating creams with a bit of color, they do improve the skin.

Missha is for old and dry skin. I would not recommend it unless if it is for a cosplay (you will only use it for one day from time to time). For daily use, skin79 is your friend. I like the orange one. Also the green one is really good.
>>
>>9575363
It really depends on the BB or CC cream, and what sort of finish you like. A lot of Asian BB creams tend to have a dewy finish which I like the look of but always need to powder down so I don't look like an oil slick by the end of the day.

My recommendations for most people are the aritaum pore master primer (nice smoothing effect), l'oreal infallible pro matte foundation (good staying power and comfortable to wear) and either the rimmel stay matte powder (pressed) or laura mercier powder (if you like loose powder).

The missha perfect BB cream is pretty alright, it has medium coverage and is kind of moisturising and doesn't last super long but has a nice look to it. If you can, grab some testers off eBay or a local store if you're set on trying it out.

I also think that anon above is being a bit dramatic about not using foundation or missha. People have different coverage/finish needs and not everyone needs skincare in their foundation.
>>
>>9575363
Depends whether you are wearing it daily, for cosplay occasionally, or for lolita every so often. Also skin tone. For reference - I'm typical combination with oily forehead/nose and dry cheeks, and am about NC25-30 in MAC products although I've never actually bought any of their foundations, only tried them in stores.

For cosplay I swear by Revlon's 24hr colorstay for oily skin with Boots no 7 beautifully matte primer, but that combination always breaks me out a little because I have layers of full coverage on in a con environment. I do think the Revlon breaks me out anyway though as I tried it applied with a lighter hand as a 'daily' foundation and ended up with a bunch of closed comedones.

Currently I use Maybelline Dream Pure BB cream for oily skin as my 'daily' which is actually quite a liquid/oily texture. I work in an office which has air-con so don't get that oily at work compared to outside in humidity, I blot maybe once at lunchtime and that's it. I've also worn it on non-work days but I find I need primer or powder to help with oil control. If I need fuller coverage Sana Pore Putty BB cream is my go-to, and that's what I typically use in lolita for a more 'naturally flawless skin' look that photographs well. Primer wise, Mac Prep and Prime doesn't seem to break me out and helps with oil control - the aforementioned beautifully matte primer doesn't seem to play well with my bb creams and often balls up.

I have also tried and liked Etude House Precious Minerals Bright Fit previously but it's more expensive compared to the price of buying the Maybelline at the local shops. I can vouch for its wearability in humidity - wore it in Singapore in August and I was blotting more sweat than oil.

After wanting to buy some for a longass time but could never afford it, I bought some Jill Stuart cream shadows that I had a horrible reaction to. So disappointed.

I'm still kind of pissed, though, because those cream shadows cost me $25 a piece. I really do think that it was the cream formula that fucked my eyes up, and I would be OK with the powder shadows.

I'm trying to get out of a depressive slump, and that includes not looking like a greasy slob. I see a lot of girls who wear a full face of makeup every day, and I'd like to start wearing some too but it all looks really finicky and like it smudges too easily.

I also can't think of a way to reapply sunscreen without having to wipe off the previous layer I'd applied in the morning, otherwise it looks super greasy, pills, or leaves an annoying white cast (one layer is bad enough, two is way too white).
Anyone got any tips? Luckily my skin is pretty good so I don't need foundation. I do however need concealer, and most of them just don't work with sunscreen. I don't even know how to wear sunscreen with anything else since most of it is either greasy and goopy, or leaves me looking like a ghost. Pls help.

Honestly though, poor Cristine. I think her fanbase ended up being much younger than she had originally hoped for, and I don't think she anticipated gaining this many fans. I think she feels like she has to put on this weird clowny act in order to keep it up.
>>
>>9579169
I don't feel sorry for her. She controls the content, and she had plenty of people who liked her content before she put on this act. There's also obviously demand for proper nail art tutorials, and every now and then you see comments on her videos wishing she'd go back to what she used to do. I mentioned twi-star; she does proper nail art and still manages to joke around like Cristine used to without feeling like she has to pander to literal children. It also doesn't help my image of her that she's started hanging out with people like Tati and they're name-dropping each other in their videos now, it just makes her so much less relatable now.

Also confession time: it might just be my age, but I don't think holographic nail polish etc. that great.

How the fuck do you find your shade in foundation?
I've bought probably five different foundations over the years thinking that they looked good, but they all turn out too yellow, or too dark etc etc

Just an FYI to anyone wanting to buy, the recent subculture palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills has changed their formula quite a bit, mainly that their main ingredient went from mica to talc.

one thing i've learned is that the color you swatch is very often not the color it'll end up being after an hour on your face.
most foundations oxidize a bit, some worse than others.
for example, my perfect shade out of the packaging is katvond's pressed powder in 45, but i had to switch to the lighter/pinker 42 because it all oxidizes to a darker, oranger shade on my skin after a short time.

i've heard a good face primer can help prevent some of the color change, but either i've yet to find a good primer or it actually doesn't make much of a difference either way.

tl;dr makeup is a pain in the ass and requires a lot of trial and error

Trial and error mostly.

What anon said in >>9579805 is decent advice. Swatch on your arm/hand, let them dry/oxidise for a while, look at the swatches in different lights.

Too dark? Go lighter. Too yellow? You need something pinker. Orange? Probably need something lighter/yellower/bluer/cooler/less saturated. Etc. A lot of information can actually be gleaned from what DOESN'T work for you.

Actually one second, let me make you something.

Okay so. Have some color theory in relation to foundation finding!

This is what I mean about what doesn't work for you being helpful. The interesting thing is that the top set are all the same saturation and lightness, just slightly shifted in hue. Same with the bottom. But the yellower the shade, the lighter it looks on the pinker swatches.

Anyway, you can see how the color underneath will make the little dot look more yellow or more pink or lighter or darker. This is what I mean about swatching something and if it looks too yellow? It probably means you're pink. Or at least pinker than that foundation. Look at that foundation, see how it compares to other foundations. Is it supposed to be neutral? If it's a yellow foundation, try a neutral. If it's supposed to be a neutral or pink foundation, you're probably VERY cool pink and you should be looking for something with almost no yellow in it.

Off the top of my head, you said you've had trouble with foundations being too dark and too yellow. Off the top of my head I would point you to MUFE- they've got a great shade range and run pretty light. Kat Von D has some incredible shades but her formula is awful in my opinion.

I have pretty severe hereditary tear troughs, they're like indented, so the darkness is caused by shadows and not the skin being dark. There's basically nothing I can do about them, but the best concealer I've tried is Lancome Effacernes Waterproof concealer. Everything else I've tried slips away.

no matter what i do, my nose oil always ruins the foundation on my nose within an hour of wearing make up and its horrid.

Try Innisfree's No Sebum powder

The shitstorm about this is such a bummer. The colors seem really interesting, but the fallout and the lack of blendability definitely don't make it worth dropping $50 on. Hopefully their next full palette isn't a dud.

Do you have a good skin care routine, anon? It could help alot. Make sure you moisturize well in that area as well as exfoliation once or twice a week. Another tip is to use eyeshadow primer on your nose area as it will help the foundation stick and last!

This broke me out so bad.

I've exclusively been using Missha Perfect Cover BB in no. 13 as my daily cover for at least 4 years now. I swear by it. I have combination skin with drier patches and a pretty oily/sweaty T zone.

I'm new to makeup, can anyone recommend a good resource to learn from? I don't want to wear heavy make up or contour or anything like that.
>>
>>9583243
Youtube. No make-up make-up sounds like what you should be looking for tutorials on. As far as product reviews/swatches/etc I like temptalia. She's very thorough with her reviews.
>>
>>9583271
Also sorry I forgot to add, don't hesitate to go to a Sephora/Ulta/Department store/whatever is available where you live and ask a beauty consultant to match you and to direct you to products that may help address concerns you have.
>>
>>9583243
it's a little dated but Kevyn Aucion's 'Making Faces' is a great book and due to its age you'll have an easy time avoiding current trends like heavy contour. A mistake I made when I was learning makeup was that I oversaturated myself with information by watching youtube videos so a book like this might be a better place to start. After you have the basic ideas down it's just a matter of practice/trial and error
>>
>>9583149

Yeah, I was so interested and nearly was part of the crowd clawing for the initial release. I guess it pays to wait.

FYI, temptalia just released a dupe list. I'm going to take a look in my own collection to see if I can cobble together a palette out of the colors she suggested and see how that works. I'm really bummed that the two duochrome colors I was excited about turned out to be such duds and are just 'toppers' rather than actual duochromes so it will be a good opportunity to survey what I have and actually make use of some of those shades I have.

Lisa Eldridge has a great 'no makeup' makeup tutorial. She pops out to me because I was sort of floored by how she made herself look flawless in 10 minutes. She also is a professional makeup artist and does really educational videos how for a variety of looks.

If you're more into korean style makeup, pony and lamuqe I find are both good. If you ever are interested, I like their contouring videos better than that of most western BG's, but I also find if I skip the contouring step that the results are still often good and give me that dewy Korean look.

What are good products for the everyday no makeup-makeup look? I'm looking at glossier, but a lot of reviews are pretty vague about the product. Plus, there don't seem to be too many people with oily skin mentioning them. I'm really just looking for a good light foundation/tinted moisturizer (whichever is lightest and breathable for daily wear) that won't slide right off, but isn't too thick either.

Korean youtubers like Heizle, ssin and Made in Mia

Japanese youtubers also tend to do korean style makeup (straight eyebrows, korean brands) so you can watch them too.

I might try that, thanks!
>>9580188
Yeah I've read about that... Some people make it sound so easy to find a foundation, I kinda feel like it's like a fucking lottery
>>9579793
>>9580327
Thank you so much anon! From what I've understood I'm probably neutral, but I'm not sure how to tell which shades are what hue..
I'll keep all of this info in mind, thank you so much for taking the time to write all this, and making that guide
Not sure if Make up for ever is available where I live, but I'll try to look for it
>>
>>9584081

No problem at all, anon!

Neutral is supposed to be in between warm and cool. Usually in foundation terms this means it's a blend of warm yellow/orange and cool pink. Sometimes it seems like foundation companies get clever and mix it up and use colours other than standard "warm yellow cool pink" to make their neutrals, and I find that these shades almost always look better.

>obsessed with korean skincare and makeup
>not a koreaboo, legit only two things I care about
>try it for myself
>fail constantly, due to having the hardest eye shape to work with (hooded eyes so hooded they cover part of my eyes/eyelashes)

I see getting my hair done and visiting makeup artists as a learning experience, and I have this question.

do you think if I went to a makeup artist and said "give me an ulzzang makeover" they'd do it? or just look at me like I'm some sort of autist.

I do live in a very korean part of town, which is worth mentioning
>>
>>9585485
Depends on how knowledgeable they are. All in all I suggest going with Korean YT tutorials instead.
