How much should I expect to spend on a good airbrush (not including the cost of the compressor)? It'd be for cosplay sfx and mostly alcohol activated paint, not regular makeup
>>
>>10809308
I... I don't think that's safe to put on your skin, right? I think a good airbrush would run you about 65-100 dollars.
>>
>>10809311
Alcohol activated makeup is literally designed to be put on skin and is a staple in the TV and film industry. I'm just tired of applying it with a sponge especially when I have a large area to cover

What moisturizers do you all use? Cerave oddly feels like its not working, as if my skin doesn't change no matter how often I apply it.
>>
>>10809487
cerave is kind of shit, i use the illiyoon ceramide ato concentrate cream but the etude house soonjung barrier cream is similar. what else are you using?
>>
>>10809487
I love Purito dermide moisturizer
>>
>>10809487
What do you mean by change? Do you have dry skin? You might want to add something with a water texture if your skin is dehydrated
>>
>>10809518
this. we need more info desu. if it's not the moisturizer, op probably needs to use toner and a less drying cleanser.

I’m in my 30s and feel like my skin has recently changed. Like more visible texture and a little redness? Any product recommendations? I don’t really struggle with acne or anything like that. I don’t really do anything “routine” wise other than cleanse twice a day and wear moisturizer with SPF in it. Help!!
>>
>>10811456
Yay I'm glad!!!

>>10811473
This is natural. Prescription tretinoin can help slow the change in texture. Def pair with a good sunscreen since tret will make your skin more sensitive to the sun. Not sure about the redness.
>>
What do you all recommend to keep skin from aging? Im only 24 but I know in order to slow wrinkles from forming, you need to start young with good skincare. What is recommended?
>>
>>10811579
moisturize, sunscreen, avoid the direct sun as much as possible, and always do the same facial treatments for your neck/chest if you expose it a lot.

>>10811757
I swear by tarte shape tape concealer!!! Comes in a lot of shades and provides really good coverage and brightening for my dark circles.
>>
>>10811579
sunscreen is the most important step, also moisturize. You might want to start using tretinoin or a retinol as well.
>>
>>10811579
Use daily sunscreen and moisturiser, even when it's not super sunny. A retinoid is a good idea as well.

MY NOSE IS SO FUCKING RED ALL THE TIME!!!!!!!!!! what the fuck! what am i supposed to do!!! dry and stingy but not peely not because of alcohol or anything like that, rest of face still oily? tried every dang moisturizer i don't think *dry* is the reason it's red and stingy it feels like an unrelated problem? of a dermatological nature? i'm 23 and its' the first change i've noticed in my skin, i fucking still get horrible teenage style acne everywhere else but that's fine. i wear sunscreen 100spf hospital kind daily coz i'm an ecologist out in the field but is this irreperable sun damage? has my job ruined me of my beauty? then why don't the guys who i know don't wash their faces look more busted than me? wahhhhhhhh ;o;

I have excoriation disorder and it’s torture. I just want clear skin. That being said, it’s a pain to cover and foundations oxidize on any blemishes I try to cover. Could an acne patch act as sort of a base for me to then cover so you can’t see the crap on my face? At a loss of what to do here.
>>
>>10811995
acne patches are safe to put makeup over. I'd recommend using them with and without makeup as well, it's good for helping acne heal/adds an extra layer to stop yourself from picking.

I want to dress up as a Galo at a con next month, but I don't actually want to go hit the tanning booth for a costume. How do I, an average white guy (not pale or anything) with absolutely zero makeup experience, go about achieving a tanned look without it looking like a disaster/blackface/a combination of the two?
>>
>>10813252
then why come here. also in my experience neutrogena sunscreen is awful if you experience burning when sunscreen is near your eyes.
Australian sunscreen is the best in terms of protection overall though, if you're going to spend good money on sunscreen, make it australian.
>>10813538
Buy some self tanner, don't do the darkest shade. Exfoliate first, and if you're not confident you can get tricky areas try asking a friend for help. That's an oversimplification but yeah.
>>
>>10813107
Why not go to a derm for retinol?

What's a solid makeup routine for men? I'm striving for male beauty, not to look like a drag queen.

Additionally, how big of a difference does tretinoin make if the rest of my skincare routine's figured out?
>>
>>10814167
for tret, ask a dermatologist about it. They'll know if it'll work, and know what concentratoin you need.
for men's makeup, there are few masculine male beauty gurus but ik ivan lam has some more masculine videos. use women's products (men's makeup is usually overpriced). moisturize/prime, then conceal, foundation/bb cream, contour, eyebrows (yours are likely thick so try using brow mascara instead of filling them in), finish with powder and lip balm. If you lips look pale/dark get a tinted lip balm. eyeshadow isn't really necessary but if you want it, matte only. also, mascara probably isn't necessary either.
>>

Anyone have some good whitehead solutions?
I've tried some scrubs from tonymoly and a few facemasks but I've got some really stubborn ones on my forehead and dimple line :(
>>
>>10814306
if your skin isn't super sensitive i would recommend taking a hot shower and extracting them after washing your face with a cleanser. the stubborn ones won't usually go away with just a product

you're not supposed to remove white heads you cretin.

>>10814323
works great for me sorry about your face though
>>
>>10814306
Try acne patches. If you mess with whiteheads there’s a chance they spread, so don’t risk it. I still mess with whiteheads anyways because I’m a heathen, if you insist on doing so then you need to sterilize everything. Your face, any tools you use, and wash your hands. But don’t mess with them though.
>>
>>10814336
i don't have them but go off. you'll see the negative results in a few years.

What the fuck is the purpose of it, then? Am I lacking understanding here? If it's a special-use-case formula (like using Vaseline to "moisturize"), why add it to a general product recommendations list?
This list sucks, honestly. Not in an offensive way, but I disagree with a lot of the recommendations on this list. I promise there are better choices out there. Look beyond the supermarket aisles and you'll find some higher quality products.
>>
Who or what do you gulls recommend for like the most basic, beginner info about skincare? As a teen I didn't have nearly any acne, so I just never got into it, but I'm in my 20s now and just feel the need to do something. I was thinking about korean skincare, but I'd like to do some proper research before buying expensive shit and just need a good starting point.

Lmao jesus christ you're obsessed. Extracting a singular whitehead or two that don't go away otherwise isn't gonna damage your skin enough to ever show unless you're retarded and do it wrong. You're the type of person that takes the "don't put q-tips in your ear" advice way too seriously

wash your pillowcases/bedsheets more frequently, and if that doesn't make a difference, there are a few different courses of action depending on your skin type. I have dry skin and I've found that using toner pads helps. I use pic attached

How do you do eyebrows for cosplays? I'm a guy with unkempt eyebrows so it might be odd to just get them done professionally, but I'm willing if it'll add to the look. I haven't heard about great success with just shaving them and drawing them on, but I've only heard that from one person.

Any recs for a matte, non-drying, but transferproof liquid lipstick? I love how those typical K and C-beauty "velvet" lipsticks/tints look on the lips, the ones with a blurring silicone texture, but none that I've tried last long enough for me.

I saw that news about hair straightening ingredients and I see it and I understand it, but at the same time I can't contain my actual literal visceral hatred for my real hair. I genuinely feel like I'd rather die of uterine cancer than live a day with my real hair again, and this deep seated hatred is something I've had for decades.
How are you other perm junkies coping? Still doing it regardless of the risk? Does the japanese hair perm carry the same risks regardless?
>>10815809
Etude house fixing tint is nice. I used to sort of like maybelline super stay matte ink but it's so finnicky to apply. I only apply it over etude house lip tint now for a darker gradient. For all liquid lipsticks I like to hydrate my lips beforehand (Lip balm 5-10 minutes before, exfoliate lips and then apply it) or use a lip overnight mask the day before.

>>
>>10815844
if you have sesnsitive as fuck skin shaving will irritate it more or less. If you can shave it in single pass - you get minimal possible irritation. Which requires sharp as fuck razor. The most sharp tool you can shave with is oldschool straight razor. Are you using that one? If you use cartridges bullshit - throw that shit away and get double edge razor after learning how to shave with it and not kill yourself in the process you can proceed to straight razor. If you already use one - then shaving while hair is still very short and keepig razor sharp plus skincare appropriate for season of the year and skin type is all you can do. In the winter skin typically suffers the most.

Your favorite waterproof eyeliners available in pencil/mechanical pencil form or potted (no liquid plz)? Preferably something available in black-brown (as opposed to true black) because I feel like it looks better on my complexion. I've realized that the drugstore brand of eyeliner I've been using since middle school, is not in fact very long-wearing despite the claims on the packaging. I really liked lip ink's lash tint. It was really durable. But the only eyeliner they offer is liquid and I'm just not a fan of that look.
>>
>>10816640
I've been using waterproof liners and mascaras for as long as I can remember, thanks to my hooded eyes nothing other than waterproof lasts at all. My favorite liquid liners are the Physician's Formula Eye Booster (least waterproof out of the bunch, but never dries up), Essence Liquid Ink Waterproof, NYX Epic Wear and Clio Waterproof Brush Liner. For pencils, I like BBIA Autogel, Maybelline Tattoo Liner and the MacQueen Waterproof Gel Liner.
>>
>>10816640
>>10816645
Just realized you specifically said no liquid, I need to get my eyes checked. I don't use potted gel liners anymore, but when I did, the Inglot one had great staying power and lots of fun colors to choose from. It did dry up before I could use it all, but it was nice while it lasted.

Yeah unfortunately I can't really seem to get the hang of liquids.
I'm not a fan of how sharp and graphic most liquid liner goes on either when I prefer the fuzzier look of pencils. I've had better luck with liquid liner that have a felt tip-like applicator instead of the typical brush. I actually really liked the dolly wink liquid eyeliner in brown because it was buildable and really subtle if you wanted it to be but it didn't have staying power. But I was using that years ago (like 2015) and it seems like they've changed the packaging and/or formula since then? There's something called "my best liner" that seems to have replaced the old stuff. Does anyone know if the new stuff actually waterproof/long lasting like it claims? I don't remember if the old stuff claimed to be waterproof, but in my experience it didn't last long. Pic related is the one I was using back then
>>
>>10816660
This is going to sound odd, but I got this random eyebrow pen off Aliexpress, and it works as a subtle liquid liner. It starts off transparent and you can build up the opacity, but only to a certain degree. It's super waterproof, since it acts more like a stain. The only downside is the brush is very thin, so you're going to spend a lot of time drawing your wing, unless it's tiny.

Interesting, why would you say Australian sunscreen is the best?

As an Australian living in the ozone hole state I abhor the nuclear fuckening that is many aus made sunscreen. So many eye burning pore blocking nightmares to dance between. Good for arms chest and legs mind you but face and neck? I’ve yet to find one that I can tolerate upon my face.
The real irony is the majority ignore sunscreens and look like rave vegeta here until they crinkle like burnt crisps.

I'm talking makeup, hair, accessories, etc.

At the most basic level: contouring/highlighting + hair style depending on your face shape. Also emphasizing your best face aspect (lips/eyes/cheekbones etc)

>>10818648
>contouring/highlighting
This is a new term to me, I'll do some research, thank you.

Regarding everything else, I don't know what works for my face shape and what my best aspects are. No one around me is good enough with words to really be able to tell me either, so I'm at a loss. Should I just go to Sephora and speak to someone or something?
>>
>>10818664
There are a lot of resources online about specific face shapes, I'm not sure how good Sephora staff are at helping you in-depth with that. My only experience with them was asking about a product but even then they weren't that eager to help extensively (I'm not from the US so I don't have a lot of experience with them). But do you have a wider face or longer face? Or round? Some hairstyles can help to visually balance like reframing the side of your face or shortening forehead space
>>
>>10818664
most major department stores with a makeup section are much much more helpful than sephora. a lot of them have complimentary beauty services as well so check them out instead. i only go to sephora when i know exactly what i'm buying.

Sorry anon. Those are ethanol based. Most brands have it listed as the first or second ingredient. Don’t use Japanese sunscreen unless if you want dry ass skin.

90% of sunscreen has alcohol in it. and japanese ones have more ingredients that moisturizer your skin.

You should be using the 10% that doesn’t have ethanol obviously. Japanese sunscreen is ass even with those ingredients. Most are scented which isn’t good for the skin either.

I'm 32 and get told I look like I'm in my 20s. Uh, I exercised and ate healthy when I was younger. I also used expensive skincare products like the Dr. Perricone stuff at Sephora before it was discontinued (I think the company was having inner conflicts and the guy took all his patented formulas to Canada or something). I switched to SkinMedica (my skin isn't so bad that I need to constantly order them).

So yeah, if you have the money, derma stores have high quality skincare products for skincare needs. I use dermstore.com and haven't gone anywhere else. I don't want to risk expired products from a non-listed retail online store.

There are other cheaper options listed itt but i never had to try most of them.

Oh yeah and drink plenty of water, stop drinking sodas etc

Oh yeah, I guess I should mention that I am Asian. Oily/combination skin at worse but it's not as bad as most other Asians. For one thing my nose doesn't get severely oily because I managed to control that.

I also have some dark circles under my eyes but they were fading when i used a trial sample of emepelle eye cream.

Fortunately the eye cream is not something that I have to splurge on right now and I have concealer.

I'm pale w/ a tendency towards really reddish or even purplish scarring that takes months or years to fade. This has been true of my acne, any injuries/scrapes/etc, and, most frustratingly, every piercing I've ever had except my earlobes.

Any product or method recommendations to speed up that fading process? Especially for the acne and the piercing scars.* I've tried a silicone gel, and later Vitamin E oil, to no success.

*It's definitely not inflammation or an infection, my piercings are completely healed, but the scar from the initial rough healing period remains.

What’s a good makeup starter kit for a sweet lolita with an unfortunate face? Is there anyone out there that sells one like in a lucky pack or something? The actual application is nbd since you can always look up makeup tutorials on YouTube but what are the “brand” items that best achieve and contour a fugly face for sweet?

Basically I’m looking for a pack that contains:

- Foundation
- Concealer
- Powder
- Eyeshadow and Mascara
- Blush

Or just a general list of brands that Sweets tend to use.

Don't forget a primer. Before you jump onto the makeup bandwagon you should invest in decent skincare too so that you don't get breakouts.

You're really out of touch on makeup. It's not as much about "which brand do sweet Lolitas use", it's mostly about application. Literally any half decent stuff will do. ColourPop and NYX can be your bottom barrel but good enough stuff, and then just go up from there in price/quality. Just Google tutorials and get whatever you want.

Recently tried the inkey list and i 100% recommend it. The packaging is criminally small but it's cheap so it cancels out. If anyone has problems with texture and a bit of acne then try it out.

How do I make my legs look better? I epilate them to get rid of the hair and I do exfoliate but I still get ingrown hairs. I hate it. I miss wearing short socks with lighter coords but my legs look terrible.

Don't bother with bare skin. Get some nice stockings in your color.

As a fellow strawberry legs sufferer, I hear a lot of people suggest: dry exfoliation, a specific shave routine (exfoliation with scrub, then sharp high quality razer, then chemical toner, then lotion and covering with warm pants), or products like KP's body scrub (or anything that targets "keratosis pilaris" which is the real name for strawberry legs), some of the The Ordinary's products, etc. etc. Some people will even airbrush foundation on their legs. I personally haven't tried anything long enough to find success. I kind of just ignore it and try not to hate my body so much desu
>>
>>10827416
The Ordinary glycolic acid toner saved both my armpits and my legs. It's super affordable compared to other options and it's the most effective.
It's good you are exfoliating your legs but chemical exfoliation is better than physical exfoliating, that's why I love that toner. Never had prettier legs and my armpits would sell on OF if I wanted to
>>
>>10827526
>>10827647
Thank you for the input, gulls! I don't think I could ever see myself airbrushing my legs with foundation, but chemical exfoliation sounds like a great idea lol. I've tried using the same chemical exfoliant I use for my face and bikini area for my legs (AHA/BHA toner from Cosrx) but I didn't see much of a difference. I'll buy a bottle of the glycolic acid toner and hopefully it'll do me better.

Any skincare brand recommendations that have products with short(ish) INCI list? Korean, Japanese or European preferably

After neeting it out for years i got a proper job so need some tutorials to learn the basics of make up and hair.

Keratosis pilaris and strawberry legs aren't the same at all. Strawberry legs happens because when you shave, you're only taking the hair above the skin, and you can still where it's cut off, essentially, especially for pale folks with dark hair. Keratosis pilaris is excess keratin in the skin that creates bumps where hair follicles are, most commonly on upper arms and thighs.

Any good guides for contouring for crossplay? I want to cosplay as Astolfo (male), but I want to actually look decent, so trying to practice my makeup earlier on.

Also, should I get my eyebrows professionally done or just try to do it myself

If you havent done your brows before, get them done professionally. Look up makeup tutorials directed at MtFs for feminizing your face.SKJKWS

so a lot of that may come from inflammation, try eating anti-inflammatory foods and probiotics and see if it makes a difference

Are you one of those greasy people who only washes themselves when it rains or something?

>>10829635
huh?? hot water is very drying for your skin, especially your face, so it's best to use cool or lukewarm at the hottest.

it's even worse for sensitive skin.

Does anyone know how to naturally get rid of acne scarring? The sides of my cheeks are all scarred bc I picked at my acne all the time in middle school despite the warnings

I could probably use foundation or concealer to cover it up, but foundation usually looks terrible irl and I'd rather not mess with my skin by putting makeup on it. Basically, I want to know if there's a way I can actually get rid of the scarring and not just cover it up

Idk if this is important but in the morning I use Cetaphil facial cleanser, 1% clindamycin topical solution, and CeraVe AM moisturizer with SPF 30. At night I do the same but with CeraVe PM and add 0.05% tretinoin. Currently I only use the tretinoin every other night because I just switched from 0.025% so I'm still building up a tolerance to the 0.05%. Also, I change my pillowcase every night before bed

Does anybody have any tips for someone with a babyface to use makeup to look older? I'm 20 and still have people constantly mistaking me for a young teenager, it didn't bother me when I was an actual teenager but i'm getting tired of it. What can I do to look older? I've tried winged eyeliner and a smokey eye, but i have really round eyes and i don't wear much black, so it dosent really flatter me. What should I try? I just want to feel sexy.
>>
Maybe try face contouring? Idk much about contouring but I know a lot people use it to make their facial structure look different
>>
>>10830880
thats a really good idea! thanks anon, ill try. it would be nice to look like i have cheekbones

>>10830868
look into a microdermabrasion or laser skin treatments. and consider using an spf 50

Need makeup to put on my face that will have no risk of coming off on my outfits, and will stay put in extreme heat/sweat

Specially black lines on my jaw for Qrow's beard, and. Blueish lines on my face for Wazukyans warpaint looking stuff.

Just explain it to me like I'm retarded if I need special pre or post coat stuff, or special remover for after.

I've gotten microdermabrasions in the past and they helped a bit, but not enough. Just spoke with my dermatologist and she recommended microneedling + chemical peels, but those are expensive as fuck and I'd have to get multiple for my skin to become completely clear. FML...

How do you know what your skin problems are / what is causing your acne? How do you determine if its hormonal, oily skin, and/or diet?
>>
>>10831567
Go to dermatologist.
>>
>>10826974
vitamin c, retinol, azelaic acid
you can use strong vitamin c as a spot treatment if your skin is sensitive

>>10830750
it depends on the cleanser, the more stripping ones should be used only once a day, but a mild one can be used after shaving as well.

>>10831567
the correlation between diet and acne hasn't been studied that well and the research has yielded to poor results. generally, hormonal acne is mainly on your jawline and can hurt and cause cysts. acne caused by oily skin is more similar to teenage acne where you have whiteheads mostly on the t-zone and cheeks. establishing the cause of your acne is more of a process of elimination and one consultation with a doctor won't clear all your doubts, but it can lead in the right direction. a lot of medicaments like adapalene or benzoyl peroxide can have good performance regardless the source of the acne.

Which foundation do you use for the body color?

When styling your hair, do you usually use a straightener + hair spray? I use no styling products or appliances and my hair looks great when I leave the house, but if I'm outdoors and have to deal with the wind then my bangs get all fucked up. I'm wondering if it's time to invest in a hair straightener.

Also, is it really a bad idea to wear my natural hair with lolita? I don't wear anything OTT so I've never found a reason to invest in wigs.
>>
>>10832438
I have wavy hair and only straighten my bangs, I think it's fine as long as it's styled nicely. I also live in a really windy area so I carry a comb in my purse to fix my bangs up throughout the day.

Any suggestions to get rid the eye tags around theeyes? It's literally hanging around my eyelids and even aroun my eyelashes...
