What do you guys think of eyelash extensions with lolita? I prefer strip lashes for doing makeup but have considered getting them for convenience. I dont want to look stupid in lolita with them though.

According to my tracker, my period's set to start right in the middle of AX, so I've been looking up ways to try and have it come a week earlier. Does anyone know if taking Vitamin C supplements actually works? If so, when and how should I take them?

So can pregnancy

I’d get second and third opinions

>> No.10167433

nayrt but my doctor also took me off of BC pills because of mental health complications, plus it was making my hormonal imbalance worse. so far no pregnancy yet, its a pretty common reason for stopping them and not really worth getting second or third opinions but if it'll make them feel better sure go for it.

Vitamin C does work but you need to be careful about the amount you take and purchase the kind WITHOUT rose hips added. they put rose hips in most vit C to prevent miscarriage etc, but brands without them do exist. i'm not going to give you any more advice regarding this because youre being a big fucking baby about your period just because you dont want to deal with it at le epic convention.

>> No.10167448


I understand the risk but I also think it’s a bit silly considering that pregnancy can basically put everything on steroids, including depression. I would still get second opinions. A lot of doctors aren’t well educated on birth control particularly old school ones so it would be nice to get an opinion that isn’t 15 years out of date

>> No.10167449

sucks when i hear girls complain about this kind of thing and their birth control. A lot of my skin problems were hormonal and both my mental health/ skin was improved by birth control. hope you can find something that helps you, anon.

>> No.10167452

Morning after pill is literally one pill though so I think it's less likely to exacerbate mental health issues compared to taking something longer term. I'm surprised you've been advised against all BC completely if you've never tried it before, especially given there are different formulations/types and you can always stop taking things like the pill pretty quickly (obviously don't go for the injection or implant in this situation). Coming off BC for mental health effects is legit but not starting due to pre-existing depression is...a bit weird. The mental health side effects are different for everyone and it's pretty difficult to predict based on having mental health issues already, especially if your hormone swings are impacting it (e.g. if you have premenstrual dysphoria and are better off with a constant hormone dose/less hormone drop)

Coming off BC for mental health is legit, but I've never heard someone being totally advised not to because of possible mental health effects, unless they were already really unstable/inpatient levels of crazy. Even with inpatients a lot of people are advised to get long term BC because the thought is that they are better off not having a baby while they have such bad mental health issues.

What kind of experiences you guys have with using primers (not for eyeshadow, but for you face in general)? I bought one to help my foundation to stay nice for a con day but in the end I don't think it made much difference. I get that my choice of foundation and primer might also affect it. I have very dry skin and the primer helped with that a bit, but are there any primers that are specifically for making you makeup last longer? In the past I've just redone the makeup for the evening...

>> No.10167544

That's the idea with primers: makes makeup last longer. I no longer wear foundation but I did like smashbox photo finish a lot! My foundation would last all day from work to home. Idk how well it holds for cosplay considering sweat and stuff.

Are you in the south or some other super conservative region? When I lived in the south I had female friends who didn’t go on birth control for the same reason, but the fact is that that advice is a pastiche pushed by the Christian anti-birth control movement. Now that I’m in CA I’ve never heard anything like it, especially not from a medical professional. I was definitely more depressed before going on the pill, but there are lots of other factors contributing to that so I wouldn’t say it’s causative.

>> No.10167551

I’ve struggled with super bad depression for most of my life and actually feel better or no different on birth control. Hormonal birth control can help reduce the symptoms of PMS. When I PMSed I would get super emotional and that itself would add to my depression. (I also had cramps that would leave me curled in a ball crying for days on end which didn’t really help either.)

If you can, go to a Planned Parenthood and see what they have to say. They’ve been the most open about helping me with my period and explaining my options.

Assuming you have a hormonal IUD and it's only been in for a month don't panic yet. It can take a few months to settle, but some gynae docs will advise doing 3 months of the combined pill (with the sugar tablets) to try and get you back in a regular cycle faster.

I tend to do natural/cutesy looks, mostly from Korean or Japanese tutorials. Usually that means BB cream, concealer, eyeshadow (I don't own eyeliner and tend to just apply wet with the angled brush), highlight/blush, lipstick. I have lash extensions so I don't use mascara.

yeah unfortunately this 'side effect' only hits about 40% of people. I wish there was a cure all for the dreaded time of the month, but there isn't.

If it makes you feel better, I had brownish discharge about a light period's worth every day for 9 months before it stopped. The only thing that made it good was that I completely stopped having period cramps, which used to debilitate me for at least 48 hours a month.

Guy here, never done any sort of skin care routine in my life besides washing my face with a cloth and hot water twice a day. My acne's really flaring up and I want to try using some products on it but I've got no clue where to start. Any recommendations?

>> No.10169287

start wearing a moisturizer and spf before you do anything else (make sure neither of the products make your skin break out worse). cerave is a common starter moisturizer, spf doesn't matter as much as long as it doesn't clog your pores and you're wearing it consistently. cleanser comes later. also, hot water dries tf out of your face so switch to lukewarm or cool (not cold either)

differin gel has almost entirely cleared up my acne and it's OTC so no derm visit, but leave that until your skin adjusts to having product on it because it can fuck your shit up if your skin isn't allowed to adjust.

the beginner routine on r/SkinCareAddiction might help you out. good luck!

Your face wash isn't really there to fix your blackheads, but it can make them happen if it's too harsh.

Ok, here's my situation.

My bf has oily skin, I have dry/normal skin. He also has coarse stubble. Combined with both living in a dry climate, this has resulted in a mustache of painful acne and on my chin.

I've tried washing my face in the morning and night with a cleanser and then moisturizing with a regular strength moisturizer. Wat do? Does putting moisturizer on top of acne make it worse?

I went and got my eyebrows threaded yesterday and tried to do the "horizontal" makeup today. I definitly followed the tutorial but it looks kind of scary... The brown color of the eyeshadow makes my eyes look kind of dirty, but I see a lot of people use brown so it has to be something i'm doing... Here is my attempt. What do you guys think?

>> No.10173361

You look like you have chosen only colours that are very close to your skin tone, which is why it looks dirty rather than deliberate. When you use nude tones you usually need some that are clearly lighter and darker than your actual skin tone to create gradients, or consider metallic/glitter shades in the same colour spectrum.

>> No.10173431


Honestly it's kind of hard to tell you have anything on at all. You definitely need colours that are more different to make more contrast. If you try what >>10171406 tutorial says once with black white and brown, it will probably look extreme but you will learn where to apply things and after that you can turn down the contrast as you need. But definitely follow that tutorial it is very good

I also mourn this (and some other past skinfood products). It's sad how some brands have fast line turnover so that products go out of production in a snap.

I miss the secret key snail sun cream. Spf 50++, smelled slightly of candy, melted right into skin like a light moisturiser. I would have bought 10 tubes if I knew it would be gone. Also miss the skinfood pressed peach powder, it smelled like peaches, and it had spf + was easier to apply on the go than the loose one.

Start with finding a good moisturizer and sunscreen that work for your skin and use them every day. Doesn't matter if it's cloudy out, sunscreen EVERY DAY. Don't neglect the skin on your neck or the backs of your hands - it can betray aging just as much as your face and gets damaged just as easily. Wear a hat. Don't tan. If you have bags under your eyes, find a good eye cream. Once you've done all of this, maybe start looking for a good day cream with vitamin C.

Give it a few years before you move on to chemical exfoliants and retinol (mid to late twenties is a good time to start), but make sure you start these before you're out of your twenties. And start them slow! Apply once or twice a week only until your skin gets used to them. You'll need to be extra rigorous with your sunscreen while using them as well.

Also don't smother your face with makeup, especially not every day. Wearing heavy foundation and contour etc every day will age your skin, and using eyeshadow too much will give you wrinkles around your eyes.

Innisfree no sebum powder compact. You'll still get shiny after a while, but you can reapply easily.

Also what are you washing your face with in the mornings? It could be that you're using something too harsh to wash your face with and stripping your natural oils, leading your skin to overcompensate. Maybe even try just washing your face with warm water in the mornings.

Alternatively, your moisturizer could be too heavy for daytime use and you should consider switching to a day cream and then using the heavier stuff at night.

I do! It took me a long time to nail the tape placement for my eye shape but now I use it almost every day. I always apply it before makeup and sometimes if my skincare leaves a residue on my eyelid I'll clean them first with a damp cloth so the tape adheres better.

Finding the right tapes for your eye shape can also take some trial and error. I just couldn't get the double sided or sting style tapes to work because they wouldn't stay stuck in the right place after applying makeup. My favorite tapes are some of the slim, beige colored one-sided ones from Daiso that come in a pack of 86.

To the cosplayers out there, how do you create a makeup look for a character?
For example, I'm doing princess tutu for an upcoming convention. She has this single long lash in addition to her normal lashes, but I'm choosing to interpret that as a long wing liner because it'd look odd in real life otherwise. I'm making up the difference using a slanted lash strip. As for eye shadow though, I'm not sure what to do. She doesn't cannonically have eye shadow on so should I leave my lids blank? Should I do a natural "barely there" look? Or a pink shadow? I've heard that it's better to put on a little bit of makeup rather than nothing, even for barefaced characters.

I am a guy who is growing his hair out, so please forgive me if this is a stupid question: how often are you supposed to shampoo and condition?

I did some brief research when I first decided to grow my hair out and I've basically been doing 2 days of conditioner only for every 1 day of shampoo only. However, I decided to ask one of my sisters for input and she said she regularly does both on the same day, so now I'm kind of confused.

>> No.10191827

depends on how thick or thin your hair is. if its thin try for shampoo and conditioner every other day and dry shampoo in between. if thick you can go longer in between washes. whatever works best for you! not everyone is the same when it comes to hair/skincare.

>> No.10191830

waxing for sure! but professional only. i've done both. it's easier to pay someone else and you know it'll be over faster. definitely don't go to just any place to get waxed though. the licensed pro should have gloves on and, for the love of everything clean, NO DOUBLE DIPPING OR FUCKING BLOWING ON THE WAX TO COOL IT!! run if you see any of that shit. you have options too.. maybe strip wax is ok for you or you prefer hard wax! there's also sugaring!

It depends on your hair, but most people do not need to wash it daily and I only wash mine once to twice per week depending on oil and product buildup. Most people wash their hair with shampoo and then condition it immediately after.

I've never watched this so I'm assuming this is a stage costume
What I would personally do is get a pair of natural lashes and a pair of more exagerated ones. I'd use the natural strip as usual and cut the exagerated one into pieces, and use one piece at the outer part of the eye (if it looks too lonely i'd add another smaller piece next to it to it just to ease the transition)
For eyeshadow, I'd try to keep it rather simple and in the pinky tones, blending it very very well so it looks more like a flush than eyeshadow, and i'd use some sparkly white or champagne colour in the middle/inner part of the eye, and well as on the center of the eyebag just to make it look a bit more youthful. i might countour the eyebag as well (only the outer part and very very slightly, never the inner part as it looks like you're tired).
i'd keep the eyebrows a bit normal/ fuller than hers are obviously as very thin eyebrows age your face. also put blush more towards the center of the face/right under the eyes. use minimal contour, maybe just the nose to make it smaller. for the lips i'd use some kind of a tint, or slighly blend the edges of the lips to make it look more on the natural side.

i hope some of this helps ;;

Any advice on how to objectively know if your hairstyle looks good on you? When I do my hair I literally do not see if twintails like shit on me or not, possibly because of my low self-esteem.

Laneige. Also, stop wearing chapstick and see if it fixes it. Your lip skin works differently than your other skin and moisturizing it convinces it not to renew itself. Thus, your lips get chapped.

It seems mostly self confidence. Just make sure your hair is neat, clean and combed (if it’s straight). Else, sticking with styles that look good with your hair type helps. I’d avoid twintails if your hair is thin. Space buns can be good with thin hair if you can tease them. Braids of all sorts work as long as you pancake them. Wearing your hair down, maybe with a bit pulled back into a barrette is always cute. Hats are great if you want to add weight to your head but have less hair.

Pic related isn't me, but is kind of my problem.
I have a lot of issues curling my eyelashes. The end pieces of my lashes (the outer and inner) refuse to curl at the base like the rest of my eyelashes, so they turn out kind of like pic related where her outer eyelashes are hanging down. The other issue is that they don't really curl that much, they just kind of stick out forwards.
I think the issue might be with my lash curler itself, like maybe it's not the right size? Do any anons have recommendations for curlers that are good for big eyes that need a lot of curling power?
