last one is 1 post away from autosaging, had a question to ask and it would've been pointless to be the last post.

I have pretty clear skin, generally I don't wear any sort of foundation unless I'm dolling myself up for something special (like going to a wedding, a fancy party, etc.) or if I just happen to feel like doing a full-face routine that day. I use and am satisfied with my mac face and body foundation, but I never realized how heavy it is for daily wear (or at least, for me it is since I don't really need too much foundation in general). I think the maximum thing I need for daily wear is something that will do a bit of color correcting to kinda cover up any uneven skin tone and pinker areas on my face - I was thinking of a BB cream or tinted moisturizer. Basically I want something with light coverage but will still even things out. any recommendations? I've tried the garnier bb cream before but it seemed really heavy? (I heard western bb creams are heavier/not as nice as the actual asian ones) in my mac face and body foundation i'm a c2, i have asian skin with warm(yellow/golden) undertones, if that helps anyone. (i know some brands are more friendly to certain undertones than others)

False lashes, why don't they work out for me? I see that in tutorials and makeovers that they make your eyes look way bigger which is what I need in photos but I don't think it makes much of a difference. Is there maybe a common mistake I'm making? Is it normal to actually be able to see the false lashes from my own eyes? They get pretty annoying and uncomfortable.

The hardest part for me is usually the inner edge of the falsies, any tips on how to apply that part easily?

>> No.8403280

>>8403247
What type of falsies are you using? There are so many types ranging from natural (just for adding volume) to ridiculous for both volume and length. It definitely makes a difference.

You should not see the falsies when they are on. Put some mascara on your own lashes, then after putting on the falsies, curl both your lashes and the falsies together and add more mascara to blend them. You can also cut the falsies if they are too long. I don't apply them too close to my inner corner since it will just irritate my eyes.
>>8403005
What else do you need? I also like Clinique's Almost Lipstick line - lots of different colors, moisturizing, and almost like a tint.

Anyone got a recommendation for a primer that is more like a lotion and is lightweight, preferably with SPF? I have been using a Skinfood one but I would like more options.

I've tried different types from elf, ardell, diamond lash, and maybe one or two others but those are the ones I can remember on the top of my head.
I tried to get a variety of lengths and designs (simple, crisscross etc..).

I got the diamond lash and a few other Asian brand ones recently and those were the ones I actually found to be more uncomfortable and able to see the falsies. The elf ones actually fit and applied the best but there's not a lot of variety there. I do try to curl them with my lashes but I don't see much of a difference. I cut them too and some bands are already naturally short enough to fit on my eye alright, even then I find that the inner corner is a bit hard to apply & hide for me, not because they are too close to my inner corner but that end of the band is just kind of weird and uncomfortable.

I felt like I got to apply my elf lashes on pretty well which is why I started branching out to some other brands but my new ones proved to be more of a problem for me.

you will get that feeling when you find your perfect mascara! a good mascara doesn't flake, doesn't clump (sometimes clumping looks ok, but i'm talking bout gross clumps), lengthens, and gives volume! i recommend too faced better than sex, benefit theyre real, and the loreal telescopic butterfly mascara if you want a rlly good drugstore mascara.

Some people stack them slightly higher then their natural lash line. If you have smaller eyes it opens them up a bit more. Trim them so they start where your eye starts to slope placing close to your tear duct kind of closes your eye. I just got Sugarpill lashes they're pretty fun and huge. I usually do individual it's easy to get them right next to your lash line and position them to better suit your eye shape.

The formula was thin and highly pigmented, curled my lashes, and with one coat alone they were completely covered and splayed nicely. I was going for a sweet, natural look, but more would build up nicely. It was amazing on my bottom lashes, made them noticable without being clumpy and oversaturated. The lashes didnt stick together at all.

I think some Asian brands tend to use a thicker band, hence why they aren't as comfortable. I like those because they are a bit easier to put on since they are a big more rigid.

Maybe you can look into Red Cherry? You can get them at some online retailers and eBay - lots of variety from simple to outrageous, and they are pretty comfortable too.

You should probably just try to get BB cream online (from a trusted source - there are fakes out there!). As for Sephora people have varied experiences, but I don't find the people to be pushy and some of them are really helpful.

I am 28 and have never worn make up in my life except for when someone else put it on me.
My mum never wore make up either.
I wanted to learn to do it so I bought a bunch of good quality stuff after doing research but no matter how many times I try it, it is a disaster.
When I was in New Zealand a make up artist told me that bobbi brown does 1-2 hour lessons for beginners. I feel like this would really help because I learn better in person than watching tutorials.
But now I'm back in Sydney I can only find online stuff or classes for people who want to be make up artists.
Does anyone know of any 1-2 hour or even half a day sort of thing make up beginners classes in Sydney?

I'm not in Sydney myself, but generally Myers' Bobbi Brown counters have lessons available. You can call them up to book one, or go to the counter themselves and ask about it. Last I walked past, they had a few different services available.

I just go into stores and ask for some help with certain products. Or if its not too busy, the shop girls are more than happy to put stuff on your face (they do expect you to buy stuff though, so I only do that if I'm certain about a purchase). Good luck!!

not either of those anons but good luck! if your a beginner in general I would just try to stick with some basic stuff; try not to start doing like complicated graphic liners and smokey eyes if you aren't comfortable with the tools in your hands yet. if you decide to try stuff on your own in the mean time I would just do simple things like learn how to do a simple 1 eyeshadow and liquid liner look, how to apply foundation, how to apply 2 different shades of eyeshadow, etc. I remember when I first got into makeup even applying 1 eyeshadow was a bit of a learning curve lol so it just takes time and patience. don't be afraid to just mess around and follow videos when you're home alone with some downtime too. good luck though and I hope you find a class that suits your needs!

nobody requested this or anything, but if you're a pasty palechan, stay away from pur minerals. attached are some swatches of their liquid foundation, tinted moisturizer, and disappearing ink concealer, all in their "light" shade.

the liquid foundation looks okay-ish on me (I'm east asian and live in los angeles, so I always have a bit of a tan) but leans toward orange, and the tinted moisturizer is definitely straight-up orange and also has a shitton of shimmer to it (it also dries a completely different color than when you first put it on). the disappearing ink concealer is also much darker and orange-y than it appears in my photo; it's visibly darker than even the tinted moisturizer in person. the concealer is a real shame because the consistency is nice and the coverage is decent, but for being a "light" shade it's too dark for skintones even in the light-medium spectrum.

the only things by pur minerals that I've liked are probably the green color corrector, which is okay but honestly way overpriced at $31, and the pressed powder foundation, which I haven't used since I tried to repurchase in a darker shade and ended up with something way too dark/orange for my skintone (I went from "light" to "golden medium" at their suggestion; couldn't be assed to return their shit again to try the "blush medium").

>>8406785
have you ever tried the spoon technique? also, have you tried using different types of applicators (a super fine-tip vs more of a pen/"marker" kind of tip)? I personally find using a pen tip to be a little easier with sharp lines than the really fine-tipped ones.

I think 'hooded' and 'deep set' best describe my eyes

They're not symmetrical, the right one is more curved across the top than the left. The left has more saggy eyelid fold (bottom left pic..) which arranges itself differently day to day. If I wear eyeshadow it all ends up rubbed off at the crease or hidden when my eyes decide to be like the top makeup vs no makeup picture. The space between the fold and my eyebrow seems too small and too high up to put anything there. Also the outer edge of the fold tends to sag down diagonally on my right eye (like the middle right pic) which would make eyeshadow look retarded with half my eyelid sloping across it... I do the same eye makeup every day and it's getting boring for special occasions. I can do gradient eyeshadow and it looks ok if looking at the camera slightly below eye level (bottom right) but again it all ends up inside the crease and rubs off by the end of the day. Sorry to include lots of pics but as you can see stupid saggy eyelids decide to do different things every day

If they really are hooded you may have luck evening out their appearance with eyelid tape like the Asian girls use. I have very deep-set eyes myself and my left eye is more hooded than the right, so I use a little eyelid tape to get it to even out. Definitely prime your eyes and use a base--NYX's jumbo pencil in white or a nude shade are great bases.

I have to admit I didn't realize eyeshadow primer was a thing. Eyelid tape looks fiddly but guess it is worth a shot, even just on the left eye. Probably best to look up a video tutorial.

That long, seriously? That's the second mention of Urban Decay so think I'll take the plunge.

Thanks again!

Looking up tutorials for hooded/deep set eyes and none of them quite fit. Some do half the main shade on the little bit of lid visible and some on the browbone whilst others make the entire lid the pale base color, darkening the very extremeties/outer edge of the browbone, which is closer to what I usually do. I would love to see pics from other anons with similar eye shape if you can make it look nice accounting for the possibility of the upper lid being completely hidden AND/or showing.

Any recommendations for neutral-to-pink-toned pale faces out there? I've had good experience with the sheer nars foundation in Siberia, but I've got quite a bit of scarring and the fuller coverage version is super yellow on me.

As far as dark undereye circles go, I have very dark genetic circles that are amplified by a terrible sleep schedule. I never had luck covering them with regular concealer and felt kind of doomed to them, but last time I went to Sephora one of the ladies showed me that Bobbi Brown undereye concealer pack and put it on me and it's absolutely amazing. It's a concealer and a setting powder, it's kinda pricey but it actually worked for me. Have one of the workers put it on for you and try it, I'm so serious. I'm amazed.

Any Japanese make up brand recs? Or where to get good brands cheap?

I know the general consensus when this is asked is to stop being a weaboo as Korean or even American brands and such are better and there is not point buying them just for the fact that its Japanese. However I live in Australia so American make up already retails for so much more here and I will be in Japan anyway and I want to pick some stuff up if its worth it.
I've tried a pore cover and eye shadow primer from Canmake which were pretty okay as well as two eyeshadow palettes which although swatched really vividly when actually applied they seemed to lose nearly all pigment. I also get a fine pointed eyeliner by KATE which I really want to get again because it was amazing, super black and lasted for months, I've tried maybelline master precise and it just dries out so quickly by comparison and its the only one I can find. I also got a heroine make mascara which was amazing although difficult to get off but I would buy again, I think I heard the company isn't actually Japanese though?

Ginger anon here. The problem with dip brow in auburn is that it pulls cool toned. It's better suited to girls who have more of a black cherry type artificial red than a natural red. Try dip brow in caramel. It looks more brown in the pot than auburn does, but it's warm toned and will warm up your face. It won't "match", but it will "go", if that makes sense. You don't need to worry about a stark contrast between the two. I'm very happy with it!

I have their lip tar in Vain I think? Kinda weird mint and plastic-y scent first of all. And for this particular color (which is a blue) I needed multiple layers for it to be opaque.

I've never used a heated eyelash curler outside of blowdrying the one I have to warm it up, but I almost never bother because I'm just too lazy.

I also have very long, very straight lashes, and my daily routine for getting them curled:
- warm the eyelash curler in the palm of my hand or against my neck (holding it won't work if you have cold hands, obviously, but I have naturally very warm hands, and if it's cold that day I just hold it against my neck instead)
- curl eyelashes a bit at a time from root to tip, holding each section for 5-7 seconds at a time
- use this trick: http://thebeautydepartment.com/2012/10/pinch-me/
- coat with a thin layer of mascara
- wait about a minute, warming up the eyelash curler again in the meantime
- carefully curl eyelashes a second time
- apply second thin coat of mascara

if I take my time with that application process the curl will last me all day (though it won't be nearly as dramatic or perfect by the evening, unfortunately). my go-to mascara is covergirl's waterproof lashblast fusion, and it does a decent job.

I use a shu uemura eyelash curler that I've had for nearly ten years (I just replace the pads every so often). having never used any other kind of eyelash curler I can't say if an ELF one is good or bad, but it may also be the curler itself?

How good's your skin? Try a sheer, mineral foundation, like bareMinerals Brightening Serum, or a tinted moisturiser. I'd recommend a BB cream but a lot of them have very powerful smells and can look cakey.

Eyeliner flatters men - get a pencil no darker than your lashes and fill in the gaps between your lashes, under the line. Done properly it is impossible to tell you're wearing makeup and looks amazing. All men on TV will be wearing it.

If you want to cover blemishes, look into colour correction concealers - if you have light skin, that's a green cream for redness, purple for sallowness, yellow for blue eyebags. I like Makeup Academy's.

Guy here. I can't figure out how to make my full coverage foundation not clump/pill.
I've tried liquids, creams, and powders in different brands.
I've tried various primers and moisturizers.
I've followed tutorials from every queen I can find.

No matter what I do, it always clumps or pills, no matter how much I apply. The only thing that doesn't pill is CC cream, which doesn't give enough coverage to hide my beard shadow.

So far, the only routine that almost works (i.e. doesn't pill/clump too much) is:
> Shave
> Apply aftershave balm
> Wait an hour
> Apply 50/50 aloe gel + Cetaphil moisturizer
> Wait for it to dry
> Apply Elf mineral primer (silicone-based)
> Wait a few minutes
> Apply MaxFactor foundation (silicone-based)
> Wait a few minutes
> Apply concealer
> Wait a few minutes
> Apply translucent powder
> Finish with Elf setting spray

This will last 1-2 hours before it starts to look powdery. Skipping the translucent powder makes me look really shiny and doesn't prevent the powdery look after a while.

you do need to create a thicker line than if you have double eyelids but it needn’t be quite as extreme of hash as in your pic anon. If you look at pic related, you'll notice that the shaded area is about as thick as your eyeliner, however it's been graduated and softened so that it still looks nicely blended and pretty when you close your eye. The actual eyeliner line isn't that thick either, the rest is created with graduated dark eyeshadow.

I inherited hard lines crossing diagonally from the top of my nose, each about an inch long (which would be great if I wanted to cosplay Kiritsigu Emiya or Itachi, but in day to day life it gets old). This is made worse by my lack of sleep or poor health giving puffy bags beneath my eyes as well. I know nothing about makeup, but I'm willing to try it if it'll hide them.

So I have eyelids just like this but with tapered inner corners. I feel like I have little to no options because of the gross hooded eyelid. When I do makeup I usually just walk around in public raising my brows so my eyelids are more noticeable. It's so dumb, but I feel like I look old with such hooded lids. All the tutorials I find for makeup looks I like are on perfect eyelids with parallel inner corners and it's so frustrating.
I hate my eyes so much.

I would recommend layering false eyelashes over your real lashes for this look. Get one pair of full false eyelashes, then trim another pair of noticeably longer false eyelashes so you only have the outer corners. Layer the longer, trimmed lashes on top of the untrimmed lashes, and there you have it.

anon who posted the purminerals swatches here... I'm not pale enough to have a super hard time finding makeup, so take my suggestions with a grain of salt:

- true match by l'oreal in W1
- covergirl trublend in ivory
- covergirl + olay simply ageless foundation in 205 (discontinued, so you'll have to purchase on ebay)
- revlon colorstay in ivory
- missha, skin 79 BB creams
- illamasqua 01, to lighten other foundations
there are also plenty of higher-end products you can try, of course, but drugstore is a good place to start for a very basic foundation.

make sure that you find a place with a good return policy on makeup products to minimize the risk of something not working out for you. also find some beauty bloggers who have pale skin similar to yours to see what works for them:

If you're happy with it, then don't do it. I'd have to judge for myself, but usually contouring is used to combat high contrast and flash for cameras. I hate my nose but I find that contouring my nose makes it look even worse. Looks good on my cheekbones though. You can't force anything with contouring really, only enhance. If you're super curious, try it.

So if you feel you look too flat, maybe use some bronzer on your cheekbones and temples, but otherwise, try lightening up what you're wearing.

If you end up liking it, use it. Just don't use it to excess.

Any tips on lip plumpers or makeup effects for big lips?

I'm cosplaying someone with distinctive large lips (not steven universe, just an example) and I have average white girl lips. How do I get them bigger or visually exaggerate their shape? Does that suction cup device really work? I'd rather not use it even if it does, since I want the effect only for one day. Are drugstore lip plumper glosses any good? The color I need in addition to the effect is a subtle pale pink gloss, if it helps.

>> No.8429606

>>8429565
It's very easy you don't need to do the suction thing. Line slightly outside the natural lip line with a slightly darker lip liner. For more dimension use a slightly darker color for the outside corner of your lips and a highlight in the center to give a pout illusion. I already have very large lips, but I still like to give the illusion of even fuller lips. I'd love to post a example, but I'm not in the mood to be ripped apart today.

Okay seagulls, my Missha Perfect Cover is unfortunately making me look a bit cakey in places so it's finally time for a change.

I'm open to BB cream or general foundation recommendations, but to be specific I would need very high coverage in order to cover up some discoloration. Bonus if they're not super orange. For reference Touche Éclat doesn't give me the coverage I need and Mac's Studio Fix/Sculpt made me look like I was a Jersey Shore extra, even in their lightest shades.

I think the new Nars All Day Luminous Weightless foundation is has medium-to-high coverage but still has a thin consistency. They also have a good shade range. It's best for oily to normal skin though, it's not so great on dry skin.

Unfortunately I think a lot of full coverage foundation can look a bit cakey and unnatural, you could trade using a high coverage concealer on your discolouration and use a medium coverage foundation for the rest of your face. Lisa Eldridge has a nice video about that! Watch it!

>I just want to make my eyes look round or something ffs.
One thing I learned about eye makeup is that you won't be able to do everything, and you will unfortunately have to resign yourself to the looks that only work with your eyes. In this case, making your eyes look round probably isn't going to be possible, however what you have going for you is still workable and can look nice! For example, Jennifer Lawrence has hooded eyes so there's a good jumping point when doing google searches for tutorials.

>>8421549
one of my eyes is like this and the other is a double eyelid, so annoying. I have actually been using eyelid tape to correct it (single-side adhesive type). I'm at the point where I've been wearing the tape long enough that the hooded lid now can hold a crease by itself for 24~72 hours (see pic). This is after 6 months of wearing tape pretty much 24/7.

It may not be a permanent solution but it works well enough if you want to have double eyelids on a certain day; you can plan your eyelid tape schedule accordingly so your eyes look nice that day.

Anyway, it may be something to look into for yourself if you really dislike your eyes, although to be honest if my eyes were even in the first place I probably wouldn't have bothered at all. The tape is rather noticeable (I have bangs which skim my eyes so not as big of an issue for me) and sometimes it will make your lids swell and become uneven, plus you can't really wear eye makeup with the tape.

I always wondered, why do you need specific tutorial for, let's say, fairy kei? The general rules are the same, just make sure you flatter your eye shape and it matches your outfit.

It's more about inspiration and ideas than anything. If I look up specific tutorials for specific styles I'm more likely to see things I like in the makeup.

I think our definitions of "generic white lady" makeup are very different, then. If I wanted a million tutorials of the same eyeliner look with one shade of neutral eyeshadow, tons of mascara, and nothing else, I'd look for them specifically. It all looks the same to me. Bland and uninspired. Looking up tutorials for specific fashions has a higher chance of yielding something interesting and/or new for me.

My skin tends to be pretty clear and is towards the dry side, but I do have a little bit of scarring from when I was younger. I don't really get acne because of the lack of oil thankfully, so maybe just something to cover up a little bit of scarring.

I always try and invest in higher end stuff so anything you could recommend that's on the higher end. I almost bought some MAC, but I read from some pale bloggers I stumbled upon it's a brand to possibly avoid if you're too pasty. The picture here is MAC's "STUDIO FINISH CONCEALER DUO W10 / NC20". The W10 part would be something that would work for me, but even a bit of the beige in most makeups wouldn't work for me and is usually too dark.

What is your pale coloring like since you're asian? I've always really wanted to get into Japanese and especially Korean beauty products, but I'm afraid I'm a bit too cool and pink in coloring for them. Bottom part of the picture is basically my exact coloring. Do you have any you can recommend? MAC, high end makeup, and quality Japanese and Korean brands especially if you can.

Well I would say you have a combination of almond-shaped and slightly deep-set eyes. They are also quite wide-set but not in the extreme - only fractionally wider than the width of your eye. It's not unusual to be a combination of the typical examples, it is just a guide after all.

From the chart you look like a combo of protruding almond and round deep-set parallel - probably why you've been struggling to find your shape.

You can probably pull-off most make-up looks but I wouldn't go too thick with your eye-liner - it could give you the illusion of 'droopy' eyes.

>dry skin
alas... unfortunately I have pretty oily skin, so I tend to stick to more "dry" stuff for mattifying purposes. this is what I've found that seem appropriate for drier skin types with decent coverage:

- nars radiant creamy concealer in chantilly
- OCC skin conceal in R0
- MAC pro longwear concealer in NW15
- the balm's timebalm concealer in lighter than light

I pulled practically all of these from self-proclaimed pasties (some of whom were called out by other paler-than-thous as not actually being as pale as they claimed to be...), so I definitely recommend swatching them in-store to see if they actually hold up to the pale test. some of the swatches I found also seem suspiciously beige-y to me, but supposedly they have more pink undertones, so...

I'm still sifting through the asian concealers, particularly the japanese ones, so I'll get back to you on those.

as for my own coloring, I'm only relatively pale for an asian living in a very sunny place. I'm still definitely more yellow-toned and darker than your average caucasian pastychan, but I have more of a neutral undertone in comparison to some of my warmer-toned asian friends (which gives the illusion of being lighter than I actually am). out of the three shades most asian BB creams and concealers tend to come in, I'm usually a 2.

And uh, I have dry patches in the middle of oily skin. But even the dry patches are oily sometimes, if that makes sense? Basically I have patches on my face that has the look of dry patches, but are oily.

Ditto. Obviously there are limits to how long you can keep stuff but a lot of the so called recommendations are ridiculously ott. Just use common sense and bear in mind that most of these expiry guidelines are fuelled by marketing bullshit.

I read some crap the other day about how bras 'go bad' after three months ffs.

Eh, depends on the stuff. Sunscreen can definitely stop being effective after a year, but unless you're dipping each lipstick or eyeshadow cake into a muddy puddle there's no reason to toss it.

I guess it would apply to people who are more messy about their makeup. I see a lot of teenage girls that are so dirty with it, you know, like the type that touches their phone with oily chips fingers.

And I'm actually the same way about food lol. Bread can go about a week past its expiry, especially if you refrigerate it. poorfags [email protected]

I can only tell you about Heroine Make's Long and Curl mascara, but it's great stuff. I usually buy it off of ebay and it lengthens my eyelashes, holds a curl forever, and is 100% waterproof. I've also heard that Dolly Wink makes great eyeliner and mascara.

As far as the 'Korean and American' makeup is better thing goes, that depends on the products you're interested in. I watched a Lisa Eldridge video recently where she mentioned that big, cute eyes are really fashionable in Japan right now, so Japan would be a great place to find reasonably priced, yet effective mascara and eyeliner.

I think I have meant to buy the cotton fit because I like a powdery finish (like Its Cosmetic's CC cream), but ended up ordering the wrong one. And no, but I think I'll invest in a matifying primer and wear underneath Blooming fit and see how it works.

I'm the same way. Usually I finish mascaras before recomended time (I'm carefull to not have more than one opened), for the rest it's better to test it for changes in smell and texture.
And some dates are completely unreasonable. Like, 18 months for a powder eyeshadow, I don't finish that quick even ones I use daily, not to mention less used shades.

About oily dry patches, how do you exfoliate and moisturise your skin? Are you taking any medication, which may affect skin?

How long do felt tip liners usually take to dry out?
I have the Stila Stay All Day liner and when I just got it it was fucking magic, with the perfect dark brown almost-black-but-more-natural colour and it didn't budge even a bit until I'd use makeup remover 10+ hours later. Now I've had it a little under two months and the colour is a lot lighter than before and it's completely gone after a few hours. I don't think I've used it often enough for it to be empty. Is there something I can do to revitalize it or is this normal for felt liner pens?

Pic related it how it looks now on my paper-white skin (sorry for the shitty lighting), whereas it used to be almost black before.

>> No.8439988

>>8439668
In my experience, it's normal for felt tip liners to dry out after a few months, especially if you use it so often. I actually do have that same liner in jet black, and it's the second felt tip liner I've gone through just from Stila. Have you accidentally left your felt tip liner without the cap on before? That can drastically shorten its lifespan.

You can try a waterproof makeup setting spray? I think I watched a review video or show recently and I remember the girl dumping her whole face in a bowl of water and nothing came off. She blotted her face on a towel after and nothing came off either but she wasn't rubbing just blotting.

Gel liner and pencil liner are very beginner friendly, just go slow and remember you can easily clean up any messy lines with make up remover. When I started make uping I skipped eyeliner all together and just used dark brown eyeshadow around the outer corner of my eye.

Makeup probably won't go on any better unless you've got, like...a LOT of peach fuzz going on.

Anyway, don't shave it - wax it or try an epilator maybe. You can buy facial wax in the skincare section of just about any store.

tips:

>reduce any signs of wrinkles, uneven skin tone, spots, dark circles, as you would with normal makeup
>do NOT attempt to draw attention to your eyes. going without eyeliner or mascara will go a long way to de-sex your face, since people interpret defined eyes as feminine
>however, round eyes are childlike, as are eyes that are not deep-set; maybe try brightening the eye area
>follow tips for thinning and muting your lips
>eyebrows may seem more arched but not so defined; avoid over-plucking (what kid has groomed, even eyebrows?) but a flat brow is usually a sign of age
>a rosier skintone may seem more youthful, but could also emphasize your femininity. i would experiment to see if you can capture rosy-cheek childlikeness or if it skews too girly on your face
>kids' faces are a lot less defined than adults', so look for tips on rounding out facial features, especially cheeks and chin; a child's face might even seem squat or flat, with a stubbier nose
>bone structure is less visible on children than on adults
>kids' heads are proportionally bigger compared to adults' so when buying or styling a wig keep that in mind
>kids' ears are often awkward, seeming large compared to their head size. wouldn't recommend prosthetics exactly but if you can find a way to get them to protrude a bit...
>kids' facial expressions are less complex, even exaggerated at times compared to adults.

I've been trying out a few cheap eyeshadow primers before I take the plunge on buying urban decay, and apparently ELF's essential shadow lock eyelid primer does amazing things for me even with my super oily lids. my eyeliner and and my eyeshadow didn't move at all for the entire day I was at AX despite the heat and all the accompanying sweat.

though to be fair, I was using etude house's oh m'eye line liquid eyeliner, and that stuff sticks through everything (and is a huge hassle to take off later, much like that heroine mascara). etude house's eyeshadow primer doesn't do much for me, and neither does ELF's regular studio eyeshadow primer.
