That’s the actual quote. I’m still pissed as hell but maybe I went too far here.
My brother and I are both late 30s. We get along fine most of the time, but my brother doesn’t do well in a lot of social situations. He says things that are inappropriate, gets overly opinionated, yells a lot etc. He just doesn’t seem to understand tact or when to let things go in a casual conversation.
Our wives are best friends. They talk almost everyday on FaceTime.
My wife is an ex model/actress (local) and very good with makeup. She’s in her mid 30’s, we have 3 kids and she doesn’t wear much makeup anymore - but she got some as a gift for Christmas and decided she wanted to get more. Apparently she’s been buying cheap stuff and she wanted to splurge on some good shit.
Anyway, she’s been testing it all out over the last month, buying more here and there and doing these crazy eyeshadow things - honestly I don’t know what I’m talking about. She looks great all the time. She’s gorgeous without makeup. She’s really talented with it though and she’s having a lot of fun. I tease her a little since she works from home and she’s wearing pajamas but her makeup looks like she’s at a nightclub. I think it’s cute and funny.
My brother thinks she’s doing it because she’s cheating or she wants to cheat. He called me this morning to say he’s concerned because he’s seen her on FaceTime and he’s decided she must be posting pictures or sending pics to some dude or multiple dudes. I tried to blow it off and explain that it wasn’t that way, but he got more aggressive about it so I ended up yelling at him and shouting the insecure testicle man baby thing.
He’s being ridiculous and needs to mind his own business. But I think I might be the asshole for blowing up and name calling when he’s probably well intentioned.
I want to add too (my mom and brother both asked, maybe other people will): No, I haven’t asked my wife why she’s recently starting wearing more makeup and I’m not going to because I think asking is fucking rude.
She’s spending her money on stuff for her face and it’s a creative hobby. I’m not going to be the dick that ruins someone’s creative outlet by asking them to justify it or by insinuating there’s a sinister motive behind it. It makes her happy so I assume that’s why she’s doing it. Asking why is dumb and insulting in my opinion.
i’m fully aware that there have been barriers to men doing makeup as it’s seen as a very feminine thing, but i find it really frustrating that despite all those barriers, the beauty industry is very male dominated. most of the people owning makeup companies are men (despite women being called catfishes and shallow for wearing it). there are millions of makeup influencers who are women, but still many of the top ones are men. i feel like female beauty people are criticised a lot more harshly than any male beauty people. for example, i fully believe that if J* were a woman, he’d be cancelled so quickly. his femininity would not be a fun personality, but labelled as vain and vapid bimbo.
I regret everything I ever thought was a good idea, and the only way of making myself feel better about this situation is by posting. I am NOT a buttplay type of girl. I’ve always found it uncomfortable personally, but my partner has some sort of obsession with the poopoo hole, so that’s the preface.
That night, I had a little too much to drink. Me and my boyfriend were watching a movie and things started to get a little frisky, as they do. It started out as just a normal session, until my boyfriend brought up the idea of “working up the dildo train” to stretch my bumhole into shape so he could then defile me in the way which he desired. My drunk ass though, “Okay! Bet!” (because drunk me has no common sense) and I produced a fairly small makeup brush. We lubed it up, I bent over, and he pushed it in slowly. And he pushed it in DEEP (to the point where the bristles were barely sticking out of my bumhole like tiny hairs). I was just laughing so hard and found it amusing and strangely erotic in the moment, and it was a great bonding time for us...
That is, until the removal process: We tried to pull the bristles on the end, but they were not strong enough to combat the tightness of my poor bootyhole. At this point I began to freak a little bit, not even wanting him to touch down there. I tried pulling it out myself, but it was stuck. Very stuck. My butthole was like a suction cup for the makeup brush and any time i tried to bend over I could feel it pushing inside my butthole and it hurt. I sat on the toilet for almost an hour just pushing in the hopes that I could pass it, but to no avail. My butthole was literally eating the brush.
Pan to 45 minutes later, I’m crying in the waiting room of the ER, half sitting, half laying down, waiting for a doctor to get in there and pull it out. Which she did, and I went on my merry way about an hour after that. But not without a lesson learned.
It was and always will be the most embarrassing, uncomfortable, weird experience of my life. I have decided to remain abstinent from anything and everything involving ass play, from this moment until the end of my existence on this planet AND the next.
TL;DR: My boyfriend and I put a makeup brush up my booty and neither of us could pull it out, so I had to get it removed in the ER

The wedding happened a week ago, and my husband keeps trying to make me feel guilty about this, even though I don't think I'm the AH, and don't understand what the big deal is.
I have been doing makeup professionally for the entirety of my adult life. When I found out my husband's brother proposed to my now SIL, I was truly excited for them. I even asked my SIL if she would like me to do her makeup for free. She said no because one of her friends already offered to do SIL's makeup. SIL then said that she didn't really like "the style" of makeup that I do.
I do tend to go for more dramatic makeup looks, especially if I'm going out. SIL on the other hand is a tomboy, and I honestly can't even think of a time when I have seen her with makeup. However, I don't judge her for this, and I think she looks beautiful without wearing makeup. So when she said she didn't like the way I did my makeup I was kind of butthurt, but I understood. However, just because I like flashier makeup doesn't mean my clients have to too.
So fast forward to last Saturday, the day of the wedding. My SIL looked lovely as expected and her makeup was... fine! It looked like she was wearing a peach eyeshadow, mascara, and blush that matched her eyeshadow. By wedding standards this was very minimalistic, but it suited her.
Me, on the other hand, was wearing a full face of makeup (which looked pretty close to this). After the ceremony was over, I went to congratulate and talk to my SIL. But once she saw me, she was curt and giving me the cold shoulder. Through out the week, I've been getting intel from my husband and my other SIL that, apparently she was upset that I had pulled out all the stops on my face, despite knowing that she was going for a more natural look. And that, because we already talked about, I should have known to tone my look down. Frankly, I did put it on "a little thick" as they say, but it's not like I was wearing crazy colors, or a revealing dress.
I keep getting shit from my husband and in-laws because I couldn't "tone it down for one night," or that I was trying to steal attention from her. I feel like I'm crazy because, that's just how I like to present myself. I want to look nice! I thought I had a pretty decent relationship with my SIL until now. So AITA?
Edit: A commenter bought up a good point and to be 100% fair I think I should note that, th... keep reading on reddit ➡
So my sisters (E 18 and L 13) and I (F16) went shopping yesterday. It’s important to note that I work at least 20 hours a week as a babysitter and I make at least $400 a week. My older sister tutors an hour a week and makes $30 a week, and my little sister occasionally does chores for extra money but usually relies on her birthday and Christmas money. I sometimes offer her a babysitting job if I’m booked for that day but she doesn’t really have much of a source of income.
We went to Sephora because I wanted some new foundation and concealer and I bought them and some new mascara and eyeshadow. My sisters didn’t get anything. We went to Francesca’s and I browsed the store and bought a skirt that I really liked and 2 pairs of earrings. My little sister wanted to go to Pandora after to look at the rings and see what she wanted for her birthday coming up. I ended up buying the sparkling snowflake earrings and the Cinderella’s coach earrings (I don’t usually spend this much money but I haven’t been shopping in months and worked almost triple hours over winter break so I felt like I deserved it). We went to lush and I bought each of my sisters a bath bomb and bought 2 for myself and we went home and in the car my older sister started yelling at me for being able to afford nicer things than her and that it’s not fair that I got 2 pairs of Pandora earrings, Francesca’s earrings, a skirt, bath bombs, and new makeup and that all she got was 2 shirts from the clearance rack, a “cheap” pair of boots ($60) and the bath bomb I got her. She said she really liked the clothes and makeup and jewelry that I bought but she couldn’t afford it so I shouldn’t buy it either.
I don’t think I’m in the wrong but she’s really mad at me and is refusing to talk to me.
Edit: I think another reason my sister is mad at me is because I got my license on my 16th birthday and my grandpa bought himself a new car a week before so as a birthday present he gave me his old car (2013/2014 Toyota Prius worth around $12,000) and my sister is mad that it didn’t go to her even though she doesn’t have her license yet
Hi y’all! First time poster, long time lurker so my apologies if this isn’t up to par here 🙈
I was watching Manny MUA’s video on new makeup and at the end, he put Rare Beauty’s new blush in his “unloves” for that video. This is due to the CREAM formula breaking up his POWDER foundation. I watch tons of beauty content and thought it was more or less known to avoid putting creams over powders, for this exact reason?... He also did the same with their previous liquid formulated blush. Yes, he did a disclaimer about using it differently but I’m really tired of seeing beauty gurus knowingly use a product incorrectly then complaining it’s not working! My pet peeve would have to be not giving the product a proper chance then giving an unfair (and perhaps misinformed) review.
Is it just me?! If so, what are your makeup pet peeves?!

TL;DR: my SIL called me racist because I didn’t want her makeup staining my couch
For context, my brother and SIL have been visiting and staying with me for the last week, sleeping on my couch. My brother and I are both Caucasian and my SIL is Mexican (this is relevant.)
Today I noticed one of my couch cushions had her foundation makeup on it. I decided to pull the pillow aside to wash later, and didn’t say anything because I thought it might have been unintentional and I didn’t want her to feel bad. Fast forward to tonight, I saw her laying on one of my other couch cushions. I asked her if she was wearing makeup, and when she said “yes” I asked if she could please use the other pillow sitting behind her to rest her head on because her foundation was transferring onto the cushions, and it would be easier to wash the pillow case.
She immediately threw the pillow on the ground, stood up, and started yelling at me calling me racist. She said that I only had an issue with the makeup being on my couch because it was brown, and my couch is gray so it shows. She said I don’t see how I was insensitive because I am not a person of color and don’t understand what it’s like for women of color who wear makeup.
I asked her what I could have said instead that wasn’t insensitive or racist, and she said I should have just asked her if she could wash the pillow after she was done laying on it. Personally I feel like that would have been worse, but instead I apologized to her and told her I did not at all mean to offend her.
For the record, I genuinely am not in any way shape or form racist. She could’ve been wearing purple or green or blue makeup and I would’ve asked her the same thing, to please use another pillow. I love my SIL and I’ve never had anything negative to say about her, especially about her ethnicity.
Please tell me, am I being racist? Am I the asshole? I don’t ever want this to happen again, I never want to make a person of color feel offended in any way about their skin color. I genuinely just didn’t want makeup on my couch cushions.
