I've noticed this trend where chicks feel the need to actually draw-on overly exaggerated eyelid shapes... You know what I'm talking about - the whole "Cleopatra" thing.
There are a handful of women for who this look "works". For the rest of you, it makes you look dumb.
P.S. As with blush and lipstick, excessive amounts of eyeshadow make you look like a circus clown.
So I've been trying to be more adventurous with my eye looks, especially because I haven't been leaving the house so it's not a huge deal if I faceplant. However I've been having issues getting my eyeliner to "stick" to my water line. Try as I might the color payoff is minimal, and whatever little product I can get to deposit there is swiftly "washed away" by tears anyway.
Could it be the products' fault? I'm using cheapo eyeliners (mostly Nyx and Kiko Milano) because I don't want to invest in the good stuff just yet, just in case the problem is me. Even so, I've seen several reviews for drugstore eyeliner pencils just like the ones I'm using and the reviewers never have an issue depositing color in their water lines.
Also I didn't see anyone today so no one got to see this absolute perfection.
my nose feels kinda funny after laying upside down so it wouldnt drip down
I've been a member for a quite some time now, and I didn't see anyone focus on this particular topic so I decided to write this post. ^^
I got intrested in EC situation, mostly because I am currently fighting with a huge body dysmorphia myself and I am thankful for finding this sub.
Personally I try to avoid watching Eugenia on her original channel, but I scrolled through many of her photos in here and there's one thing that really bothered me in her makeup. The more I look at her photos the closer it hits to home for me.
Basically, body dysmorphia is with me for a very long time since I was a young teen. Somehow, in one of the heaviest stage of my self-hatered I figured out that I can distract people's gazes with my makeup. I truly believed that if people focus on my eyes, they will ignore the rest of me. I wore the heaviest makeup, the most dramatic lines and the brightest colours almost creating another face with all of it. And I was proud of it. People were often looking at my makeup, pointing out that it was way too heavy for an everyday look and I felt accomplished. I felt that it worked. They at least didnt comment on my disgusting body at the end of the day so it was a win. I was obsessed over my dramatic lines so much that I had to buy like 3-4 bottles of eyeliner a month, because I even slept in makeup sometimes, fearing that someone would see me without it.
As much as I felt safe while wearing eyeliner, I absolutely hated it when someone watched me when I was applying it. It was my personal ritual, something as close to me as part of my body. It was like I was becoming another person. A better person. I felt lighter and this was my secret. When anyone would ask me to show how I apply it - I literally felt sick.
Some of you probably notice how Eugenia usually doesn't show how she applies her liner, but it's one of the most iconic things about her makeup. For most of you, the first thing you will notice on her pictures is her weight and that's perfectly normal. But her makeup hits me with a strenght of a Hulk, each time I see her photos, reminding me of me problem. I just see my problem and what I went through.
Maybe it's just her just liking the dramatic look, it's very possible, but I just want to tell you guys about a different side of makeup. Especially when you go through an ED or body dysmorphia. It can be beautiful, but it can also be a curse and a sign of suffering.
