Yes. She said when I straighten my hair and wear a little make up my attitude changes … I appear more confident … right that’s a strange comment … never thought of that before. I’m going to splash on lipsticks. Any good reasonably priced brands
Maria Bamford is a bipolar comedian and in one of her stand ups she said that her mother said the exact same thing! I’ve just spent 5 minutes looking for the clip but can’t find it.
That’s interesting. I’m searching for the clip.
I prefer the no make up look
For a basic tool kit
All you need is
a matte everyday foundation with SPF 15-50 + hydrating
A concealer depending on your eye bag color (check with a MUA)
I think a medium charcoal liner will work nice on you + a hazel one if you want two
A basic contour and blush palette for a night out use
This is something that stays in my purse when I go out and a combo of the basic for me :o)
One of the affordable brands which is very good
sooooooooooo glad I’m a guy LOL
Wow … lol I need to find a mua… do you think they can advise on everyday casual look make up?
Lol my mum exactly
I’d love to but I can not really see your skin color well to suggest it for you =( through a pic.
Do you have pharmacy drugstores? those have make up artists working there or a Sephora maybe? Not sure about UK.
For everyday I use the above list just a very pale version, or cancel the eyeliner and eyebrow lines and the contouring, just use blush. The most basic for me is 'curling lashes// eyeliner // mascara // hydrating SPF
Let me see what coupon codes I can give you. I think most brands have a sign up online discount at least 10% or you can follow them on Instagram and see when they offer discounts. If you can buy local the first time is better so you can test out the foundation/ concealer color.
I’m not sure the coupon codes will work here but I’ll check hotdealsuk or voucher code websites. I was thinking to get an appointment with a make up artist just for advice but not sure they do such thing
yeah you can book an appointment. I am just not familiar with UK stores ://
I can’t leave the house without a bit of makeup, if not I look tired
I have started wearing makeup more often lately.
Not daily but most days of the week I think.
My mum says I look hard and cold with too much makeup on and even just brown eyeshadow is too much according to her.
She rathers I wear just mascara and lipstick and nothing else.
My boyfriend rathers I wear black around my eyes so maybe he loves me looking hard n cold.
i wear a few different brands and am willing to try new things too to some extent.
Maxfactor lipfinity last quiet a Long time .
when I had my teeth cleaned the hygienist commented that my lipstick stayed on.
I was only wearing lipstick that day and nothing else.
I have started cleaning g my face every morning which is a nice new routine for me.
I only used to wash it in the shower.
@anon80629714 I think most department stores with a cosmetics counter have someone who can help you try different make up.
BTW, I think you look very pretty and “not ill” in the photos you’ve posted on the forum, so I’m not sure what your mum is talking about.
I’m from the States, and I buy my makeup from Sephora or Ulta.
I like Clinique and their lipstick. I have red, mauve, and burgundy.
It’s cos I don’t post photos without make up granted it looks natural but I prefer the look towards the natural side
