A normal female thing is putting make-up on? I just want to know how much is too much? I like putting eye-liner and mascara on just for that defined look and it looks like I'm awake and a bit of foundation just cause it feels good and makes my skin look awake. But mainly because I love fashion. In a girls perspective when we see another girl wearing her make-up we credit how she put it on flawlessly but for a guy they would see it as too much powder or primer and think what would they look like without make up?
My b.f sends me mixed signals about when I wear make up that's why I'm asking? Like I look good in it and people credit and take me seriously for it like I actually look pretty presentable. But he constantly mocks the time and effort I put into my "me" time and why would I wear it if I don't go out also that I need it cause I'm ugly without. All his exact words too?
Wow hon, if any 'man' said that to you, I have no idea why you are still with him, let alone on here asking peoples opinions so you can please him better. Every persons opinion obviously will differ, but I prefer little to no makeup at all. A woman comfortable in her own skin is much more attractive to me than any caked on 'beauty' will ever be. A little to accent the beauty you have is more than enough.
well that's a good thing. I do my own make up and I use the powdered mineral stuff so it's very subtle. as for eye shadoes-I usually would use clinique or lancome for that. you can get tutorials at Sephora. I booked another one I think in December and they show you how to contour or apply stuff. I love trying different make up. well you can always ask the advisor behind the desk about a product and hwo they can apply it. I usually go and get it done professionally for an occassion but yeah.
My industry is make-up. I'm a cosmetologist as well as a make-up artist, I went to one of the premier schools in New York. My take on make-up is do what you feel comfortable with, but do NOT DO NOT DO NOT overdo it. If you go big on the eyes, do barely anything else. For instance, I always do the smokey eye. Always. I love how it looks on me, it makes my eyes pop. Yeah, it looks like I have eye make-up on, of course. But for my face? Foundation, I countour my cheeks with a bronzer or darker foundation, slap on some clear lip gloss and go. There's a fine line between looking polished and looking like a clown. I think eyeliner by itself looks stupid, but that's just my opinion! Doesn't mean it's wrong! To someone else it could be the hottest thing they've seen. My point is, please yourself first. And if he's saying you're ugly and NEED make-up? Ditch his sorry ass. You don't need a little boy like that telling you what to do. For shame ;)
A little makeup is okay, but when you look like a streetwalker, you put on too much.
It really really bothers me when girls cake on makeup (i.e. primer, foundation, powder, eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, blush, fake eyelashes).
There's this one girl who usually sits in front of my in my early morning environmental ethics class, and she's got every different type of makeup possible layered onto her face. I think its very very unattractive.
I'd go with tinted moisturizer and maybe some mascara/eyeliner.
