What foundation/skincare/powder stuff do you people recommend for a smooth, flawless face before blush and contour?

I've been experimenting with different combinations and the makeup tends to fall into cracks and wrinkles and exaggerate them on my face, to no avail.

You're not supposed to just slap on foundation first. A decent primer will cover over lines, so foundation covers smoothly

I like to use a cc cream instead of a full coverage foundation. It does a lot without feeling too heavy/caked on the face and it looks more natural. Hope it helps

for when I need a really smooth finish I use Tarte amazonian clay foundation over the Benefit POREfessional in matte finish. I also only go right up to the edges of my smile lines with the foundation, not actually in them, to avoid creasing.

I apply the foundation with my fingers first so that none of it is absorbed into the brush/sponge, and spread it over pretty thin, then go back with a sponge and pat everywhere to even it out and fix any texture issues. I'll apply more foundation to areas that need extra cover but only if they're flat (cheeks, bridge of nose, forehead--nowhere the extra liquid can settle into creases). Reminder that with a full coverage foundation you should add at least a little bit of highlighter and a small amount of contour to bring back the shadows it's now hiding. You don't have to go full glam (and for lolita looks it is out of place), but use a little to bring your bone structure back out again.

This will give you a full face look, great for photos, but it will stand out if you are going out on an average day. But also if you are having creasing problems, investing in a good retinol face cream and eye cream to diminish them will go a lot farther than makeup tricks.

Thank you! I've tried primers from Urban Decay and Tatcha to moderate results. For foundation I've tried Urban Decay and Shiseido, and I experimented with putting NARS concealer on both before and after foundation, and it seemed like before foundation worked out better?

I also read some tips about putting a BB cream on, then foundation over it, but wouldn't this get quiet thick and caked easily?

Nyx primer anon here. Haven't tried those brands because I'm cheap and save my money for burando, but I've had better luck just putting a little concealer on AFTER foundation. Sometimes the foundation is enough and you realize an area didn't need concealer, and if you have issues with makeup settling it's best to use as little product as possible. Honestly I just use bb cream instead of foundation most days, and concealer under my eyes/ on blemishes as needed. Top with powder and I'm good to go.

Does anyone have tips for someone trying to apply eyeliner. I've only just started adventuring into makeup, I've been watching quite a few Youtubers to get ideas but every time I've applied liquid pen eyeliner its so cracky and bumpy.

Honestly, it’s just practice. The first times anyone does eyeliner it’s either way too thick or way too thin. You need to get used to doing the motions on your own eyes because it doesn’t always feel natural. Practice every night before washing your face and going to bed. Also try to look up eyeliner tutorials done on/by people with a similar eye shape as yours to see if they have any tips, and if you find you’re having issues with pencils and liquid pens, maybe try liquid dip brush liners or a gel pot with a liner brush.

It's cheap eyeliner. Good eyeliner can be layered without it getting clumpy. The elf pen liner isn't terrible although it's not opaque & the tip wears out quick. It's $2 though so you get what you pay for. I like to use the pen liners for liquid & a pencil for the waterline. I prefer brown.

If you can pick up anything by Benefit, Kat Von D, or Stila, it'll be way easier. All their pen liners cost around $20, I think. There's a lot of brands, and I'm not an expert, but I've used all those with good result. I learned using Milani's eyeliner pen, but they stopped selling the one I liked.

I’m copying and pasting this after like three other mishaps posting on this site, oops!
I am a 19 y/o female who recently has gotten really into makeup after not really concerning myself with it much. This means I don’t know much about it, and unfortunately I’ve hit some snags.

For one, I’m super pale. My veins are blue, which I think means I have a cool skin tone, which doesn’t help how incredibly pale I am.

I have a hard time doing makeup without it looking muddy or harsh. Luckily I really like soft, shimmery, ethereal, even angelic looks. That sounds silly I know, but it looks like it might be right up your guys alley! I’ve found my people (:

If you have any suggestions I will gladly take them, I would love it if you even showed a pic of makeup looks that you think would work well. My eyes and hair are dark brown if that helps. Thank you guys!

Okay, that makes sense then. If your makeup is looking muddy or harsh, it sounds like you may be using eyeshadows that are too matte... Asian makeup is likely to work better since it's more sheer and shimmery than current Western trends, but some of my friends have pulled off very pretty looks using liquid eyeshadows or colored highlighters as eyeshadow too. Also, the first step for dewy, angelic makeup is skincare. What is your skincare routine like? How much water do you drink every day? Also what makeup do you actually have, what eyeshadow primer are you using?

>> No.10315337

I actually don’t have a skincare routine per say, but I have tried using one before and it sadly made me break out. I am really fortunate in the fact that I have very smooth skin and only breakout with one or two whiteheads around my nose or hairline when I’m stressed, or if I get a lot of grease or oil on my face which (surprisingly) I try to avoid. I haven’t had a breakout in a couple months I think.
It’s hard for me to tell how much water I get because I spend a lot of time at school, and I stop by the drinking fountain very frequently. I’d say I don’t get enough though, my lips are chapped sometimes.

I just got myself a palette from Ulta called Opalescent, it was like 24 bucks which is the most I’ve ever spent on makeup LMAO, but it’s really pretty and has a lot of soft pinks and shimmers. I also found a concealer that actually matches my skin tone, so I’ve been using that as primer. I’m not sure what primers are all about desu. I did use a lot of cheap mattes before this though, like you mentioned ):

>> No.10315349

You'd might like Asian makeup products better like the other anon mentioned, I think Etude House and Canmake in their cool tones would suit you without breaking the bank. I am pale myself and that's what I use. I also love the peripera lip tints because they're so easy to apply and long lasting, just make sure you apply some lip care first at the very least. But that being said, avoid brown tones at all while you're starting out and focus on sheer pinks and light colors in general.

Do not add them all at once, it will piss off your skin. 2 Cleanse (Softymo Speedy Oil), 4 treat (I'm recommending a chemical exfoliant, CosRx Aha/Bha Toner, use at night, starting every other day), 1 moisturize (CeraVe), 3 sunscreen (you must use this if you use a chemical exfoliant, Etude House Sunprise). The numbers indicate what order I'd add them in. You might want to add some vitamin C under your sunscreen.

How are you applying your makeup? You can find cheap tools at Marshall's and TJ Maxx. You can find makeup too but be very careful it's not open. I don't think you need to switch to Asian brands yet, just keep practicing with what you have. Pick up some Nyx eye primer, as it's not the same thing as concealer, though you can use concealer in a pinch. If you need blush, use the inside color of your lip to help pick a shade. For lipstick, I like Rimmel but Nyx is good too.

And yes, it sounds like you're cool toned. You want to figure out your eye shape too. If you want to apply highlights or contour, it helps to know your face shape.

Sorry, fell asleep. Probably good for my health or something.

I will try to snoop around and get some good makeup brushes and skin care products, we have a few cheap stores around town.

That blush tip helps, I had no clue where to start with tones and all that. Contour is actually one of the few things I know about, because I do a lot of stage makeup, though that’s admittedly more intense than what I’m going for so I don’t think I’ll be using it a lot.

I know I don’t have hooded eyes, or monolid. They are kinda almond shaped and they have a crease for sure, they tilt a tiny bit upward?

I got a cheap set of 5 brushes and use 3. Pick up one for blush too. Play around with them. You're going need to practice anyway. Google eye shape and compare your eyes to the pictures.

Lip stains tend to have alcohol in them that are drying. I put Vaseline on before I go to sleep. You can exfoliate them with a little sugar and oil (brown sugar and coconut oil for a lux experience).

>> No.10315669

She probably needs to deal with the chapping problem first. Lip tints are actually notorious for having staying power but being drying. So her lip tint is probably drying her lips out and then the chapping is preventing the colour from sticking well. That or the lip tint is from a wonky brand/not a lip tint?

Most girls layer lip balm under/over their lip tints so you get the staying power but also keep the lips moisturised.

>> No.10315696

>>10315611
Okay, will do! I think I’ll pick up a brush that has a fine edge too, I don’t like using cat eyeliner (yet at least) so I usually just use a darker color at the base of my eyelashes.

I have a ton of coconut oil that I use in my hair since it’s super curly, so I can get that LUX experience. I also use chap stick regularly, so I think my lips are fine most of the time. I will try the kind of lips you guys seem to be talking about, where it’s darker in the middle and is very pink or red and shiny, it looks very pretty.

I also read in here that if I get my brush wet, it makes shimmer show up better! Should I use water or something else? I don’t want to use anything that will ruin the palette or make it unsanitary.

She issues really weak chap stick imo, and I think she just needs to exfoliate the dead skin off her lips before putting it on.

I'd skip liquid eyeshadows for that, actually. Most of them go on like actual blobs of paint, with sharp edges that are impossible to blend except smear it all over the place.

Better if you pick out a decent brand eyeshadow with decent pigmentation. Swipe two colours on your eyes and that's it, done and so light that you can go barefaced without looking weird. If it's staying power, get some eye primer instead.

>> No.10315796

>>10315703

The lips thing you kind of have to stay on top of -- the scrubbing will remove dead skin but they'll quickly re-form. So basically balm (or chapstick if you prefer) in your pocket and reapply during the day if you have issues with dry lips.

Or, skip the lip tint and go straight for lipstick or tinted lip balm. Lip tint is liked because it'll stick on the lips the longest, but if you have really dry lips it may make more sense to get a tinted lip balm and reapply it throughout the day instead.

As for the blush, the product name will say whether it's lip and/or cheek colour, so if it says both then you can use it as a blush. Most lipsticks you can already use them as cheek blushes, smear them on your thumbs and use your thumbs to put the colours on your cheeks.

Personally I prefer the powder blushes as I like putting them on with the fluffy brushes. I had an actual combo lip/cheek stick from Misha that ended up being used mostly as lipstick, but it's certainly my personal preference, so it's something you should try out.

A small angled brush will probably work for you to add a darker shadow for an eyeliner effect. In this case, wetting it will probably help. I'd try wetting your shadows and see if you like it. You can always clean your pallette with isopropyl alcohol. I don't wet mine, but I mostly go for a more sheer application. Also, brushes are going to be a personal preference too, so if you see something you like, grab it.

And, I know you don't want to, but you should probably learn to pluck your brows. Look up tutorials, go slow, remember they're sisters not twins, and I recommend just cleaning up your natural brow. When you're comfortable with other stuff in your routine, I'd do your eyebrows too. A little cheap powder and wax is all I use, though you might need a better brush for the powder. If you want something more natural that you can do now, just groom your brows with clear mascara.

For mascara, I wipe the wand clean, get it in the base of my lashes, wiggle, pull. For the bottom ones, I hold the wand vertical and sweep sideways. I always buy Maybelline.

If you do want to try foundation, your face is most red in the center.

For the gradient effect, try a q-tip to apply three dots of stain to your lip, two top, one bottom. I then use my finger to carefully work the color along the seam of my lips. I think this look in particular can be tricky, and I might not be much help because my lips are stupid big. You're just going to have to fiddle around with it. Use some gloss after! I do get the gooey vaseline stuff over chapstick.

An aside on blush, as your cool toned, you can wear almost any shade with little trouble, just keep the application light. Tap your brush after picking up pigment before you apply.

I wrote you a letter, then saw this. Cream blushes (like lipstick, mascara, liquid foundation, and anything that's wet) will go off after a while. As I don't wear makeup daily, this is a pain in my butt, and I don't spend a lot of money on things I think will go bad before I use them all. And while we're talking hygiene, I forgot to tell you, you're going to need to wash your brushes.

My favorite brand of blush is Tarte, though I think they're known for their concealer not their blush. Blushing Bride is a really light pink I love, and I just got Natural Beauty which is a little deeper. Also, they are with the more expensive stuff. I encourage you to go swatch it them your arm and then go home with something from the drugstore side. Take advantage of the fact that there's open makeup in front of you that you can touch, see what colors you like. (Please note: This is terrible advice if you have poor impulse control. For me, the $50 price tag on pallettes keeps me from playing Pokemon with them.)

Thank you! I’ll be sure to try things out and see what works best for me. The feeling of brushing powder with a big brush is... godly, but I like the shiny look that a cream gives. I also have a lipstick that I really like right now so I might stick to lipstick until it runs out.

Okay so I tried wetting my brush to apply pigment, and I’m not sure if it’s just the palette, but it didn’t help much ): luckily there were some darker shades that I could apply lightly to get the color I wanted. I also like sheer looks so I might just stick to keeping my brush dry. If need be I could use my finger, I’m kinda used to that anyway!

My lips aren’t crazy big but enough to warrant a gradient. Thank you for all the tips! I never thought about wiping the wand clean, I hate clumps so I usually just apply coconut oil since my eyelashes are thick enough to still show, but I would like them to be a bit darker sometimes. I just can’t stand the feeling of thick, clumped on mascara. I might use a second, clean mascara applicator to brush my eyelashes out after too, since I have one.

Everyone should use primer. Stop trying to delude yourself into thinking it's just moisturizer. Primer doesn't absorb into the skin it sits on top of it.

if you want brighter, more saturated pigment for your eyeshadow (and to get it to stick longer), it's better to use a sticky base than water. I use normal primer, do my base shades/crease/corners, then for just the eyelid/center highlight I dab a sticky base and then my eyeshadow for an extra pop. It's best for more dramatic looks, deeper colors, or duo/multichromes where you really want the color shift to be visible. There's a couple I like but the Pixie Epoxy by Fyrinnae (indie makeup brand) will produce/ship fastest probably.

It's also great for making other colors into standout liners. Though personally I prefer to use the Magic Set from Graftobian to fix a tiny bit of loose shadow with a drop or two of liquid to paint on so I can see the color as I apply, if I'm making my own liner color.

Honestly, CC cream is pretty out of fashion nowadays. Being real though, there's no actual difference between a BB, CC, or foundation, they're just foundations with different levels of coverage.
If you're looking for CC cream recommendations though, I assume you want a light coverage, moisturizing formula.
In that case, for me, Missha and Skin79 are still the best! My faves are the Signature Real Complete, Porefection, and Super Beblesh Pink.
Online, I've seen several recommendations for:
> It's Skin Babyface
> CoverGirl CG Smoothers
> Maybelline Fit Me
> Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly
> L'Oreal Infallible 24H Fresh Wear

As other anons mentioned, Amazon is not a good place to be getting your skincare or makeup.
Aside from YesStyle, there are also stores like RoseRoseShop, etc. that you can use. It all depends on who has better shipping to your country. If you go to the asianbeauty subreddit, they have a list of trusted sellers you can look at.
I mainly use eBay, where I can use their "save seller" feature on my account. So I've saved sellers who are trusted and reputable, and when I search for an item, I can filter it to just show me listings from my saved sellers. Then I can compare prices between all the stores, including what my shipping fee will be.

NTA but there is differences between them. Regular foundation doesn't contain sunscreen or moisturizers, and some expensive C.C creams contain whiteners and the like. The ones you've listed may not have much difference, but B.B and C.C have little to do with how much coverage they give. B.B and C.C have about the same amount of coverage but C.C usually contains more skincare elements than B.B which generally has a moisturizing aspect and sunscreen.

I definitely think the difference between BB, CC, and foundation isn't as clear as industry marketing makes it out to be.
Regular foundation does indeed contain SPF and moisturizers on many occasions, so I don't think that's enough to separate foundation and BB. Not only that, but makeup products with added SPF are completely ineffective due to the amount of product you'd need to use to get proper coverage (meaning you'd be caked in makeup.)
It's true that BB and CC on average have more added skincare ingredients, but do they ultimately matter? Their concentration is nowhere near what's required to see an actual benefit - after all, the product first and foremost has to perform as makeup. The formula is going to align more with what looks good over what benefits the skin, with the beneficial extracts ending up at the bottom of the ingredients list. And when the product is being layered over sunscreen and perhaps even a primer, are they actually penetrating the skin at all?

Either way, I don't think it matters too much. I only said what I said because anons looking for a nice BB or CC might enjoy a sheer hydrating foundation just as much. If you feel there's a distinct difference because one has X flower extract and Z root powder, then all the power to you.

The bacteria doesn't come from the applicator (that's stored in a separate compartment anyways.) The bacteria comes from the environment, air, etc. and seeks out the sponge because it's the perfect breeding ground for more bacteria.

Probably more accurate to say every BB, CC, foundation, primer, etc out there is now its own thing. It's not like "foundations" between brands have much consistency to begin with, one brand's foundation might be too powdery or too sticky, another might be too opaque or too sheer, a third brand might make a shitty foundation but a great CC cream, and like another anon says, western brands seem to take your attitude and simply slap the label onto a foundation that's a bit more moist with no other added extra.

I owned multiple Etude House BB and CC creams at one point (some as samples, got a full tube once as a freebie). There's a huge difference between the different lines, some have a different texture, some work better/worse for oily/dry faces, one was so sheer it worked more like a moisturiser than makeup, another so opaque it was almost foundation-level.

At least, that's probably why you're getting people telling you there's a difference, someone who has tried the different lines of one brand can see there's a difference. Meanwhile you're comparing them sweepingly across multiple brands so to you they really aren't grouped enough with a clear distinction between groups, especially with some of the lazier brands simply doing a marketing exercise rebranding their liquid foundation.

Hello Anon I have mixed skin and I still recomend people to not use primer. Primer is another cover in your skin, if you have oily skin, it’ll be the same as if you apply foundation without primer. i used primers before, they did not work, but a good moisturizer worked.

You are probably using the wrong primers. The primers that work best for me are those that have a moisturizer-like formulation and no silicon. Silicon primers look great at first, but made my comedomes worse and made it difficult to blend concealer.

The primers I have used that I love the most are the Ole Henrikson, Good Chemicals, and Bobby Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base. All 3 have skincare ingredients, no silicon, and dry down to an ever-so-slightly tacky finish which is essential to how makeup wears throughout the day.

If you're wearing makeup for more than a few hours, you need something to help prevent your sebum from coming up through your foundation and breaking it apart. And I'm saying this as someone who uses a VERY light hand with concealer and a dusting of mineral powder foundation, so there's not a ton of stuff on my face.

For tutorials, you want to avoid most youtubers. There's a few who are really good, but most do makeup that looks good on camera but is waaaaay too heavy for irl wear. Avoid tutorials where they're layering lots of products (using multiple primers, multiple foundations, concealing half their face, plus blush, bronzer, and highlight) or if they keep adding more and more eyeshadow shades to a look.

Remember that most people look good with LESS makeup, not more. Lisa Eldridge's Makeup Basics tutorials are fantastic for learning how to apply stuff like concealer without having to be so heavy-handed.

The same rule applies to skincare. If you have a routine that's working, don't mess with it. Keep it simple (wash your face, moisturize if you have dry skin, change your pillowcase often, apply sunblock if you're spending a lot of time outside). Multi-step routines are super trendy right now, but they aren't necessary and for most people really won't have any positive effects.

NTA but we're not told that in ""makeup school"". It's due to sanitation laws, local laws at that, some places don't even consider them single use but drying them takes a long time. It's because it can't be disinfected with alcohol specifically, and they degrade over time, not because they're impossible to clean. Literally everyone knows any kind of sponge in general doesn't stay clean forever and you should replace them, but they are not single use by any means. A similar law is that pumice stones use in nail care are professionally considered single use in some states even though they aren't single use at home. Makeup cushions definitely don't collect bacteria anymore than anything else does. You guys sound OCD as fuck acting like bacteria simply grows from touching things like that. Entire countries of people use their hands for makeup application and it's perfectly fine.

Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12%.
I tried this because my understanding is that it is a more gentle one and absorbs quickly since I wanted to keep layering other stuff. This one is okay to use with the niacinamide solution as well, which I was also adding. (Note: Apparently it can cause some redness if you do. I got a little so I am going to try using one in the day and one at night and see if I am imagining things)
I think a small draw back of the liquid solution is that it will go bad faster than the one suspended in silicon. Don't buy it unless you are planning to use it right away. Maybe another anon can tell us about the other mixes if they have tried one?

I broke out the first two days after trying this one, but it is calming down quickly and a little dark spot I had from before is fading fast.
It is too early to say if it is amazing or anything, but I didn't see people mentioning this when I googled it so I wanted to give you a heads up. It got better fast so don't freak out if some spots pop up at the start.

I'm in a market for a new eyeliner. I have oily lids and very few products stay on properly all day. The one I've used previously seems to be sadly discontinued. I googled around products and quite a few places recommended a gel eyeliner (the one from Bobbi Brown specifically).

I've never used a gel eyeliner. I'm generally not very good at doing neat lines. I'm sure I could figure it out with practice but I'm kinda wary of "just trying out" an expensive new type of product. I also appreciate stuff that's easy and fast to apply, and some videos I watched just seem to take a lot more time with a gel eyeliner than I do with a pen/felt tip liner.

How stupid would doing false eyelashes like this look on western eyes?

>> No.10334005

bit of a rant, but my hairdresser has been progressively fucking up my bangs worse and worse recently. when she gave me bangs initially they were perfect straight + triangular for j-fashion (i was super happy with them). but recently when i've been going back for trims she started adding in more and more hair on the sides and cutting them to look like the western half-moon style which looks like shit on me. she's widened my fringe by at least an inch on each side of my face and i look like i have a particularly bad bowl cut. it's really gross. she also didn't even cut my hair evenly, it's almost diagonal.

honestly I prefer non matching eyebrow than bad covering/coloring job.
But to answer I will say it depend how light/bright is the wig, per exemple dark color are okay but it start to get weird looking when it's a darkish red and you have dark brown eyebrows. Natural color are more forgiving but it start to look bad when the wig is medium blond ( without darker roots).

I second that rose pink is an excellent option for lip color. Don't be scared of sheer tints and stains in hot pinks and bright blue-red. You wouldn't think of them as youthful, but they work surprisingly well with cold undertones.

I don't like to wear much eye shadow, and if I do, I tend to stick to one color with a simple application. If you don't have a babyface, eyeshadow can bring out the wrong effect of either a drag queen or glamour model. Light to medium browns, pinks, & red look good. Blacks, purples, blue, & dark brown eyeshadows tend to be really aging on cold undertones. I like to use mascaras and eyeliners in brown because they're more youthful looking & bring warmth.

For fashion, I often just use some brown on my top waterline and/or mascara with the heaviest amount on the outer part. A good mascara should enhance the eyes well on its own with the right application. I don't like doing the bottom lashes/liner because it makes me look older. If I do anything, it's a bright accent color on the bottom lid. The brighter lip tints in blue-red and hot pinks with a little bit of eye makeup make for a good look. I use the liquid eyeliner in brown too on the outer bit of the top lid. Like, if you're looking straight ahead, where the pupil starts and out.

You should give those colors a try and see how they work with your complexion. I just personally, as someone with cold undertones, find dark brown and black mascara and liner too dramatic. Brown warms the face.

(The exception is nail polish, but as an inorganic substance alongside perm solution, it proves inhospitable to anything contagious.) 3 steps. We have to follow two.

That's why cushion applicators are an issue. You can use one if you use a new sponge every time you pick up product, but that's rather wasteful. Powders can be poured out, cakes and creams picked up with a spatula, and liquids poured out. With cushion types, you have to get it straight from the applicator. People start giving other people skin nasties because someone forgets to use a new sponge, and everyone's sad.

There's nothing wrong with using one personally although one may want to throw it out after an unexpected breakout or skin infection, and might want to replace it on the schedule one is suppose to replace mascara.

I don't know why we're discussing something that's simply a health precaution when something is being used by the public versus individuals. It's the same reason behind why many don't like using the testers at Sephora and the ilk.

i already mentioned this upthread when someone was talking about "makeup school". the issue with makeup sponges isn't that they sit and possibly stew in bacteria, it's that you'd be using them on people one after another after another and if one person has herpes bam everyone does. but a fucking cushion isn't that bad. people are acting like it's like reusing soiled toilet paper or something.

I'd shill Fenty just because they have such a wide range of skintones and are pretty decent. Find one that perfectly matches your skintone and that will work.

I used to go by popular brand until I switched over to Asian brands. Suddenly going from being forced to blend a concealer that was too light, to choosing between two concealers that were so close to my skintone is an absolute game-changer.

For dark circles undereye, I think the Skinfoods salmon concealer still works better for most people, using a concealer there sometimes just isn't enough.

I don't know where to ask it so it maybe the wrong thread. I let my bang grow for a long time and I noticed that the bang part of my hair is darker than the rest of my whole head. I used to bleach my bangs to the root for fashion color every other few month for 6 year and only stoped last year so it's my first virgin fresh regrowth there. I have dark hair since I was a kid and they only got darker over time really slowly.
I didn't noticed anybody else having this IRL and I scared it got like this because of bleach ( even thought it didn't got thinner or more sparse), Do it happend to anyone else ? Should I be worried ?

You are just stupid. Hair is already dead by the time you see it, so bleach cannot do anything to the growth that hasnt happened yet. Your hair naturally got darker as you aged. Hair also naturally can get lighter from the sun.

You just havent seen that natural healthy hair in a while.

Has anyone here tried enzyme/powder cleansers?

Fashion colors don't fully wash out, even when the color fades, leftover specs will remain without you visibly seeing it. So maybe it is leftover fashion dye resedue. Babies are very bright and as they age, their hair and skin gets darker. I forgot the exact ages, but just like baby teeth, your baby hair all gets replaced slowly by age 3 or 5, then they get replaced again when you are a bit older, as taught in cosmetology schools. Bleach does not thin hair if you already have thin hair, it often will actually "thicken" your strands due to spreasing their scales open. Why worry though? I wouldn't personally care and would keep growing and cutting it.

Not a shill but a lot of these things can be fixed with products from the brand The Ordinary. They have very cheap high quality products for most issues you’ve listed
>eye creams for grey circles and heavy wrinkles
Most eye creams are just overpriced moisturizers so just apply moisturizer delicately to the area and you should be fine. Using the ordinary’s Caffeine Solution 5% should work well for the dark circles though.
>anything to improve my mild forehead wrinkles
I swear by the ordinary’s Retinol 0.5% in Squalane, it completely erased my eyebrow furrow wrinkles in a month.
>anti-aging serums
The retinol works well as this too, but you might want to look into a chemical exfoliant like aha or lactic acid to make your skin more youthful looking. The ordinary has both, and if you use the aha/bha absolutely don’t put it on a wet face and don’t leave it on for more than 10 mins
>sunscreen that won't give me cancer
Most sunscreen won’t? Sun balm’s face sunscreen and the ordinary’s sunscreen are pretty decent.
>clogged pores/black spot fixers (the dots on my nose literally show through my founation even with 3 layers)
These are sebicious filaments, they don’t completely go away or shrink too much in size because that’s just how your skin works. A decent skincare routine should take focus away from them though.

I swear i can't find a single exfoliant like that in any affordable store. We also don't have The Ordinary oddly enough, but maybe i missed it.

>Most sunscreen won’t?
I hope so. I just grew up with a mother who sperged 24/7 that sunscreens cause cancer, and contain mercury or whatever. But been looking at ingredients lately and they don't seem any more harmful than cheap hair shampoo riddled with harsh detergents?

>A decent skincare routine should take focus away from them though.
Hope so, see i swear they got darker and wider over time. I used to have depression where i didn't shower for 2 weeks in a row. When i started a normal hygenic life, noted they faded to a slight freckle-ish color, at least on the front of my nose. The sides have giant ones, really dark. My bf has complained about them a few times.

He had a valid point of critique though. This isn't your personal hugbox. You can hugbox all you want online but in real life, when normal people who don't sit at home all day browsing ching chong forums are around you, you will get stares and get heavily judged, because you are acting like an infant legbeard and it is immature, then you will get embarassed and shocked because people online encouraged and enabled this behaviour. This is a harmful thing to encourage. You made no argument to debunk, all you do is throw insults and avoid creating a counter argument, therefor you have lost the debate. I suggest you migrate to rddit because people have your mindset there about being anti-critique, not saying this as an insult but why are you on 4chan of all places? People come here specifically for the lack of huboxing.

I was kind of worried that if it was due to bleach ( and I always putted too much on my scalp ), it would only get darker and so it will be harder and harder to bleach (and start to get very noticeable).

Get a decent cleanser and wash your face for exactly 60 seconds focusing on the problematic areas using only your hands. I used to have really bumpy sebaceous filaments on my nose that stuck out like blackheads and dark clogging on my cheeks but after using this method everyday 2x a day my pores went back to what they were in my late teens (I'm pushing 30 now)

It is retarded fat single ladies who are legbearded women children who refuse to grow up, yes their obsessiom with yaoi is one of several traits, but in general it's a bunch of hairy women who refuse to grow up.
