I am full on Italian, I have fair skin, but extremely nasty dark thick facial hair. Waxing makes me break out like there's no tomorrow, even when I exfoliate my skin. Threading, hurts WAY too much. Can't afford laser or electrolysis yet. Thinking of using an epilator...? The pain is bearable. But does it have any bad effects? I hear women shaving their face is now trending...is that something I should try, or stay away from? PLEASE HELP.

the epilator on your facial hair is not a good idea. It can twist your follicles and cause ingrown hairs. As for your skin breaking out when you wax, maybe it's not being done right, or you need a more gentle wax like the pink creme wax. Also, you might be going to the wrong person for threading as well, If it's done right it should not hurt.
If all else fails, tweeze. I have think black hairs on my eye brows, a few little hairs on my upper lip, I rarely get my eyebrows and lips waxed mainly because it is a hassle, and most people do it improperly unless I do it myself.
Another thing you can do to prevent breaking out when waxing is to put on baby power in the areas you are going to wax, use the pink creme wax, and right after wards put on a cooling aloe solution to prevent it from burning.1
