As far as what I like, natural beauty usually trumps tramps and trashy makeup face chicks. Then there are girls who will occasionally wear a small amount and still look insanely beautiful without it, that's what I like/support.


As far as cosplay goes, don't do it, but we need make-up for our movies and other visual entertainment too, so yeah, it is what it is.

Yeah, pretty much my life right there. I have really blonde eyelashes and eyebrows, so if I add any mascara or shade to them at all, it's like - BAM! - suddenly I have eyes! And everybody notices. And compliments. Then, of course, I get lots of compliments on how I have such smooth, even skin, when I feel like I'm wearing a really obvious layer of foundation and I don't understand how they don't see that.

I have sort of a love/hate relationship with makeup in recent years. On one hand, it's nice to get sweet comments from people, but on the other hand, I know that I only get those comments when I'm wearing a fake face. I don't get them when I'm not wearing makeup. I guess that means I'm not one of the "natural beauties," huh.

Speaking of which, Cas, you said what your opinion was on natural beauty and girls who are pretty with or without makeup, but you didn't say anything about ugly chicks. Snarkiness aside, I am genuinely curious what you think about unattractive people and makeup.

As far as unattractive goes there is no such thing as a woman who is unattractive except maybe Chewbacca's wife, but even then, I think Chewbacca is a cuddly bear. If you ever heard of the expression or phrase "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder', well then you would understand that everyone has some sense of what beauty is to them. As I have mentioned before, all women are attractive. The most beautiful ones are the ones with a golden heart, soul, and spirit. You really can see those people shine through, whether it is in their eyes...i mean seriously they radiate beauty and no these people do not need makeup.

-------

There is this stereotype thing going on with makeup when it comes to guys, that I have heard and seen through some type of media whether its through youtube, facebook, music, etc. The stereotype is that men have no idea about makeup because to them a full face of makeup is the real person's face. There is this girl show i watched where this woman commented that men think that Kim Kardashian's face is gorgeous when in fact, she has piles and piles of makeup done on her. To men, this is natural beauty/the real person's face when in fact its not. She also commented that a man has no freakin clue about the difference between eyeliner and mascara, or even the slightest clue about foundation or serum or eye cream. Do men even know what a spoolie brush is? And they went further on to say that a man needs to love you for the no make up face no matter how sick you look like.

I am curious though...do men have an idea about makeup? Do you guys know what a spoolie brush is and the correct serum to use for the eyes and know what type of night look is appropriate as well a day look? Do you guys know the difference between matte foundation and regular foundation and what type of brush to use to avoid a cake face? Do you guys know what a cake face is? (and no its not a face with chocolate cake or whatever cake)

Of course guys today KNOW what makeup is. There are guys here in Asia who wear makeup.
There are visual kei artists who do.
For example, this guy, Mana, takes his time with it (2-3 hours) and probably does a better job than I ever could:

Other than this, I don't really like makeup. Well, too much of it anyway. XD

I would hope men know what makeup is. But do they know everything there is to know about makeup? Like the different kinds of foundation, serums, correctors, etc? Do they know what brush is used for creams? How about a spoolie brush? How about knowing how to avoid cake face?

Pretty sure they do. You have makeup artists that are MEN.

Let's take my brother in laws. You give them a picture of Kim Kardashian or artist with tons of makeup and they think its their real face. Not all men know about this kind of stuff. Oh well...

I don't really think they have to know (and they definitely don't haha.) But I think most men know when a girl is wearing makeup at least. If you do the "natural" makeup look and they can't tell, well, I'd say good on your part! Guys can definitely see a cake face though, and know when a girl has something on her eyes.
To not know that the Kim Kardashian is wearing makeup would be an extreme case of not having a clue haha.

But just on the whole makeup thing, I love this thread! Wish more girls would come in here, I think it's fun.
As for me, I don't really wear makeup on a day to day anymore, but if anything it's something like this (I'm on the right):
Image
(I consider not using this pic hahahaha, but I don't take selfies on a day to day so this is it)

Just eyeliner on the top and some mascara, usually both a dark brown vs black (Loreal voluminous eyeliner pencil being my favorite). Moisturizer (st. ives collagen in the tub), spf, and sometimes blush if I'm sickly looking, but no foundation. Most times I'll just do mascara though, since it's a life saver. My eyes look pretty dark even though they're green and my lashes are thick but not incredibly long so mascara kind of just pulls it all out so they don't look like beads on my face.

For my work though I'm sort of "required" to step it up a bit, so:

(This one I did crop since my coworker was being terrible)

Which is dark, thicker eyeliner on top (gel/liquid, I use Revlon Colorstay liquid a lot), eyeliner on the waterline, usually a pink or red lip, foundation (without spf because of pictures, I like Bourjois or Dior Airflash, obviously Dior being very expensive so only for occasions), blush (bourjois again), plum/dark brown eyeshadow, smokey, filled in eyebrows (I do this on a day to day too since groomed brows automatically tighten up everything. I use the elf eyebrow kit) and fake eyelashes on the occasion too. The pic above is actually more mild than some of the makeup I'll do.

Some other makeup things I love:
Big Fattie Mascara (I pretty much like most mascara I've tried though haha)
Lorac Unzipped Palette (thuuuu besstt)
Loreal True Match Lumi Foundation
Nyx Jumbo pencils
Maybelline Dream Matte Powder

yayyay for makeup!

I'm adding more to my daily routine. I usually wear mascara now, as well as concealer. I'm blessed with nearly always clear skin because fuck yeah ethinyl estrogen pill. I'm probably going to start adding foundation and a bit of eyeliner/nudish eye shadow to make my eyes seem bigger. But yeah, the goal is definitely to keep people thinking I'm not wearing make up.

I use BareMinerals, mostly. But I need to really expand my knowledge of brands. I'm also pretty familiar with Estee Lauder.

So I just gave this Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Stain in Cranberry Crush a try. A co-worker gave it to me when she heard that I was curious about lip stains but didn't want to put on something that wouldn't come off.

Well, it didn't really pass that test anyway. It was basically all gone after I ate a meal (my cheap red lipstick could actually hold up through a meal with minimal re-application). It did leave my lips sort of a faint berry color through to the next day, though.

Application was literally the same as coloring in my lips with a marker. My lips felt really dry, though, even after I applied balm over the top. I'm wondering if it has alcohol in it like a real marker. It did sort of leave an evaporating cool sensation as I used it.

Also, curiously, it smells sweet like cranberries but tastes like nothing - because scented lips are somehow something I wanted in my life, I guess. :roll:
