Never understood the need for this stuff. Pretty cool what can be done with it though.

Anyone else have that problem? Or just me? lol

And also, I wanted to start this so that the community can start talking about makeup. I really like makeup, but because I work out a ton and I value sleep and being able to rub my eyes/face, I don't wear it everyday. What's everyone's favorite brands? I like more indie brands like Hard Candy, but for my face I like Neutrogena. As for style, I don't contour unless it's for cosplay...and normal eye makeup is lining the corners to make my eyes look bigger and all that jazz.


But anywho...let's talk makeup!



I'm sorry for the unrelated post.. But I approve of your gif.

I've never had that problem with eye make up but I haven't tried contact lenses. When I was a preteen my step-mother got a really nasty bacterial infection from her contact lenses so I decided glasses were just less fuss overall. My step-mom always used a lot of make up too so when we were relaxing at night as a family she would say how she felt ugly without her make up and contact lenses. I decided I never wanted to feel that way.

I use very neutral make up for weddings, parties, and my wedding anniversary. Generally any event where there are going to be photos and formal occasions.

Make up is very useful though! When I cosplayed Hikaru from MKR this spring I realized really late that my natural lip colour was clashing with my pink wig. I went to the store and explained my problem to the lady at the make up counter and she picked out a lip stick for me. I was a bridesmaid this fall and the bride tried to pick out some neutral colours of matching make up for the bridesmaids. We had to change the lipstick colour because it was so neutral that at least one bridesmaid wasn't going to have lips in any of the photos.


Make up skills are very important, but I don't have them. Most of my friends are artists in one way or another so I rely pretty heavily on them.

I never wear make up. And girls who wear it are actually a turn off for me

Sounds like you have sensitive skin, possibly allergies to a certain cosmetic. Could be the type of mascara you are using try switching to a different mascara possibly one for people with sensitive eyes. Skincare is very important. I like to use Vivo per lei Dead sea mud soap it leaves your skin feeling soft and clean. My favorite make up brand is Clinique. If you have sensitive skin ( I do ) the less make up the better.. unless it is for Cosplay then Definitely go all out ...just remove it asap .

Oh wow. Eye infections are scary. I scratched my eye once and it got infected....scary stuff. I wore contacts for sports, and my father got picked on a lot when he was a kid, so having me wear contacts was one less thing the kids could bully me for in his eyes. Our parents must be in the same generation.

Neutral makeup is the most flattering in my opinion.

And those makeup artists are very helpful I'm going to seek some advice for contouring sometime soon. My male cosplays can use a bit of a pickmeup.

Hmmm, I don't think I'm allergic. But they might be sensitive and my lashes do hit my glasses, so I'm thinking that might be the culprit. AHHHHH I've used that soap! It's amazing. :)
Thank you

i was gonna say "then don't wear makeup if it bothers u" but then i saw u said you really like makeup lol. so do whatever makes u happy haha

i have medication i put on my face, im super lazy, and i work with kids who dont really care what i look like so i dont wear it often BUT i will say i like covergirl's liquid concealer. works like a charm on this hideous face of mine

p.s. if u do have sensitive skin they make plenty of makeup for sensitive skin. it may be more expensive though idk it's all expensive haha... another reason to not wear it much

I used to wear a face powder with SPF in place of sunscreen on my face. It looked way better than having a greasy face. Problem was the powder came off pretty easily and I hated reapplying all the time.

Make up is kind of like... war paint... but instead of becoming fearsome looking and hard to see, you become more beautiful and easier to spot?
I'd totally be down to wear make up, except that I feel like it's socially unacceptable for men to wear make up, unless they're gay.
So sad!
Only girls get to be pretty... *sobbing*


LOL! You reminded me of the time my cousin called the band KISS pansies because they wore makeup. Maybe it's because I was a teen in the 80s with all the glam rock, but I see no problem with guys wearing makeup if they want.

Personally I rarely wear any makeup. I only wear it if I am really dressing up for an event or date. For regular work days or church I don't ever wear anything more than a little lip gloss. When I do wear makeup, I wear Clinique brand.
