Do any gulls have advice on coping with a really unfortunate / ugly face? I'm saving up to get a rhinoplasty, cheek reduction, and something to fix my hairline, but it's going to be a long time til I can afford those things. In the meantime how do I cope from day to day? Any and all advice is welcome.

Id much rather watch other people do it for me. Being mean to someone doesn't benifit me in any way, shape, or form. I'd rather help than harm, because helping others at least boosts my ego.

I was thinking about that, but I didn't know the name of the masks. Thank you!! I'll definetly look into it.

Not a gull, but something some.females did for the ego boost was camwhoring, nowdays you can get away with showing virtually nithing on chaturb.ate and still recieve compliments, offcourse a thousand dudes will want to see more, so it's on you. You can start by not showing face, and yeah it's indeed a good practice to not do so at all if you plan to show a lil something, cappers gonna cap. So yeah it's on you how to approach this. Just don't get addicted to it like a subhuman, a subset if this is making athread of your own on /soc/ or /b/ if ur hardcore.

Whatever you decide to do, good luck.
>>
>>10252390
You can try clip-on bangs or a wig first, see how it looks on you

Get good at doing makeup. Or get one of those Japanese fashion masks that hides half your face.

well she either recieves an egoboost and moves on or gets stuck camqhoring for retards, at least I gave her the warning, it's something many girls do to check their worth, or because they feel down, etc

Honestly you have to step back and ask yourself if you are actually as ugly as you think you are. Even the prettiest girls still have something about their face they don't like. Not to mention almost everyone on social media (lolita or not) uses some kind of face tune/ editing / face blurring that can even be used on videos so some of those 'perfect' faces aren't even real. Maybe play around with a more flattering hair style, do your make up differently to highlight your best features etc.... I personally was "blessed" with a long italian nose which I always thought made me look like a witch, but honestly I'm the only one obsessing about my nose no one else ever cares. We are our harshest critics after all.

Thank you! Ive been practicing makeup a lot recently though I have a really small budget. I always thought those masks were kinda weeby but I do own one so I'll see if it helps!

>>10252667
I personally think that I'm a 1 or 2 out of 10, but my friends have rated me a 4-5 so im probably just below average. Though it wouldnt surprise me if my friends sugarcoated it haha. Personally I think long noses are very cute. I'll try to be kinder to myself in the future. Thank you!

Woah, you have brutally honest friends.
>>
>>10252178
I think proper skincare and bodycare might help you a bit. Face is not everythin, y'know. Having beautiful skin or hair is sth that really makes even an average girl look much better, or so i think. You can check korean skin care routine if you want, it's kinda expensive (you use a lot of different kind of products) but it's totally worth it. Hope you'll make you feel a bit better about yourself.
>>

Yeah, we're all honest to one another. I dont keep friends that lie to me.

>>10252737
Thank you very much! I currently have YesTo's charcoal cleansing stick and use sheet masks twice a week, but I know thats only scratching the surface of proper skincare. I know its not necessarily Korean skincare but I just ordered Colourpop's vitamin c serum. Will let you guys know if it helps.

>>10252743
>>10252747
Youre a very sad excuse for a man. Stop trying to defend your crap suggestion. I cant imagine how that would make anyone feel good about themselves. I want to look pretty, not sell my dignity for attention from anonymous losers on the internet.
>>
>>10252783
the thing is girls always find their blue prince in the bunch, I know a thing or two about camwhoring, it's not for everyone, but some times it works, so yeah don't if it's not for you, but it can make you feel desired, sexy, special, hot, etc.
>>
>>10252785
But youre willingly slandering your own name online.
>>
>>10252797

>>
>>10252802
How can you keep it anonymous if youre flaunting your own body? Photos are very easy to trace back to you. Look at what happened to Aydin Paladin. She sent out a tit pic and they found out it was her because of the mole on her hand. Or a bunch of anons traced a picture back to taylor swift because of one wall and a window in the background. Using an alias or going anon wont keep you safe.

It's harder to control your face but you can take good care of your body and shape.

Personally i looked really bad in a wig with bangs, but once i cut some cute bangs into my hair it looked alot more fitting. You just gotta be careful with how they part the bangs before they cut them
>>
>>10252720
You know, i really dont think physical features are as important as a well balanced coord anyways. You should do it. As long as everything else about your coord is 10/10 your face wont even matter. Good hair and makeup can go a long way. And if you still feel really insecure about it, you can always put a sticker over your face or just not post your coords. Theres a couple japanese lolitas that always have a face sticker on insta.
>>
>>10253149
Remember that stylists practice on wigs before they become licensed. Can always get their help to trim a wig on your head.

This is really great advice! Thank you so much. Ive placed an order for clip in bangs, so I'll let you guys know how it goes.

I usually use face stickers, I'm worried about how those around me perceive me. I don't want to drag lolita through the mud and make everyone assume its a fashion for uggy people.

Not sure how popular this advice will be on cgl, but from one ugly girl to another: learn to accept yourself the way you are.

I know that probably seems impossible. But I think there's a huge difference between loving yourself and accepting yourself. You don't have to love yourself to learn to be okay with the way you look. But if you never accept yourself, then you will always be miserable, because you'll always be chasing an unrealistic ideal.

Once you accept your natural features, it's much easier to figure out which parts of you are more pleasing and which need the most work. For example: perhaps your nose is too big or crooked, but you have nice eyes. Draw attention to your eyes, and people won't notice your nose as much. Get a good skincare routine going that makes you happy to take care of yourself. Find out what makeup suits you best, and find out which hairstyles/colors look best on you. If you have a weird hairline, maybe you could get bangs. As far as clothes go, find out which cuts and which colors are most flattering on you. Styling can take you a long way.

One day (hopefully) you will be old and wrinkled and ugly, and so will everyone else. It sucks not being the pretty girl who everyone falls in love with at first sight, especially when so much of our culture and social interactions are based upon ideals of beauty. But I promise you will be much happier if you stop spending so much time focusing on surgeries and procedures that will make you look how you think you should look, and spend more time taking care of yourself and enjoying life with the face nature gave you.
>>
>>10253976

Who you are as a person on the inside is underrated as well.

That's something that everyone can fix without spending a dime.

Cheers, gull. Your looks will fade but the person you are will continue to grow and become more beautiful each day if you only work at it.

Is the cleansing stick and masks all you use for skincare?

>>10252178
Best thing to do would be to go into specifics. Scratch that, best thing to do would be to post a photo. I know this reply: >>10252450 is 90% trolling but there are a lot of 'constructive criticism' type threads on /soc/ where people who think they're ugly post their faces and get genuine feedback on how they can improve. If you post wearing casual clothes in /soc/ then nobody will know where you're from as presumably you don't want to do it here. I'd recommend not preempting your post with which parts you think are unattractive though, it can be easy to second guess yourself and think a feature uglier than it really is.

I'd help you if I could anon, I don't give a shit if people are ugly or pretty or anything but I am very honest and will give you reasonable feedback. I have no interest in shaming people for how they look, but I'd tell you what I think is wrong and what isn't.

Whenever people give this advice, they started out with decent skin to begin with that just got prettier after keeping it clean better. A lot of actual skin problems are genetic.

In the future they will have technology that recognises parts of your body from pictures and links it to other pictures of you. They are developing that right now. Facial recognition already works and it will work on other body parts too.

Unless you have mental health problems, those are really expensive and time consuming to fix, if they can be fixed at all.

Nayrt but what makes them more worthless than any other color?

Nayrt but probably the casual/general commodification and stereotyping of Asian women as sex objects, especially by western dudes with race fetishes for Asian women. Otherwise they're the same as any other camgirl.

Having a pretty face structure is only one small part of what makes someone attractive. You have to work with what you've got.

-Lose weight, gain muscle, eat healthy. It matters.

-Wear flattering clothes. Avoid waists that are too high/low. Wear shoes+hemlines that flatter your legs. Wear stuff that fits. Build a nice wardrobe.

-Hair! Make sure it's healthy (don't damage it with at-home dye jobs, diy bleach, excessive heat, etc.). Make sure the color and cut flatter you (have to colored and cut at a GOOD salon). Learn to style it well. Learn to add little touches like braids or fancy clips.

-Learn to do your makeup well, especially your foundation. Lumpy cakeface texture enhances any flaws you have. Beautiful makeup distracts from those flaws.

-BE REALISTIC about how you AND other people look. 99% of the people you see every day are "ugly" in some way, but you'd never ever notice unless you were really paying attention to their individual features.

Most attractive people have a big nose, or tiny lips, or wide neck, lumpy lovehandles, flabby arms, whatever flaws, but you don't notice. That's because we're not programmed to pay attention to every bit of visual input. Instead, we take the aggregate sum of what makes them attractive or not. If there's more attractive traits (nice hair, nice style, healthy body, clean neat clothes, manicure, good makeup, personality) than unattractive traits (big nose, wide cheeks) we don't think "that person is ugly", we think they look good.
