I just feel like there's so many new products coming out, do people buy new products and add new things into their routine that often?? Do people spend high end skincare money like that? Maybe its because I'm on a pretty strict budget lol idk
I am an attorney at a small law firm with 2 assistants, Amy and Kate. Amy dresses in business attire, appropriate for a law office. Occasionally, she might wear jeans, which isn't against the dress code I wrote when I opened my firm, as I never wanted an employee to feel forced into getting dressed up if they were have a rough morning.
When I hired Kate in April, she never had an office job but always dressed appropriately for work every day for the first couple of months. Over the last 6 weeks, her attire has gradually grown into a shirt and jeans almost everyday. When she arrives at the office, she puts on her makeup for 20-30 minutes. Occasionally, she will skip makeup entirely.
I was a little concerned since Kate is the first person people see when the walk in the door to our office. I let the appearance issues slide since I'm a man, and I don't know if I should comment on a woman's physical appearance and, technically, she's not in violation of any of my firm's dress code requir... keep reading on reddit ➡
Throwaway because my gf knows my main.
My gf and I are both women. Since I was in highschool, I've been really into wearing makeup. When I have lots of time in the morning, I can spend an hour+ on my face. My girlfriend on the other hand is very anti-makeup. She thinks it's a tool of oppression/shouldn't be required of her to wear in public, etc.
Corona restrictions are opening up, and last week we got into an argument after I made us late to a friend's party by spending too long getting ready to leave the house. She blew up on me in the car, basically saying that I shouldn't even have to wear makeup, and I'm just perpetuating gender stereotypes. I said my makeup was a form of creative expression, and it wasn't just so I could "look pretty for men." She said it was really convenient that my form of creative expression happens to look exactly like what men find conventionally attractive.
We ended up apologizing to each other and I thought that was the end of it, but yesterday we were... keep reading on reddit ➡
I used to use 2 pumps of foundation when doing makeup because that's how YouTube would do it. Ive recently realised I only need half a pump to cover my face
What techniques did you used to use because of YouTube that you realised dont work?
My (24M) girlfriend “Maya” (26F) is the most beautiful woman on Earth, literally perfect from top to bottom. She was drafted by a really big modeling agency in LA while we were in college (how we met) and she made an unbelievable amount of money, enough to pay off all her student loans and buy us a house. We also have a 1yo son.
Like I said, I love everything about this woman – the way she dresses and does her hair, her perfume that smells amazing, and the confidence in how she carries herself is just so attractive. She’s also incredibly smart, much smarter than me.
Last year, though, Maya’s parents died in an unexpected accident, and while it wasn’t surprising to me that she was grieving at first, I was, however, surprised at just how bad it was, and before you call me TA for saying that, I had reason for it – Maya had cut contact with her parents when she moved to LA because they didn’t approve of her modeling career, and they only spoke again after her college graduation because... keep reading on reddit ➡
Here's a list of products I've seen used or mentioned by house-guests. I will do my best to update throughout season. This is a work-in-progress, please leave comments of things I've missed and/or requests!
(All of this is my opinion and its ok if you disagree with me)
These channels have a very dated style of makeup where it feels like they are stuck in 2016 AKA the golden age of the makeup industry where everyone was in the head of BUY BUY BUY.
Like...barely any of these gurus changed and evolved with the trends. They always do the same makeup but in slightly different colors.
Makeup have become more lightweight and effortless and barely anyone does instagram makeup anymore. For me, this is not entertaining to watch. I gave up expecting different things from these people.
The only guru I can think of that has evolved is Desi. She used to do heavy makeup but now her techniques are more refined. She’s still does glam and colorful looks but its not the same as before.
I don’t have friends that are into makeup and beauty gurus so I dont have anyone to discuss this but I just wanted to let my opinions out somewhere lol
EDIT: I forgot to add another point:
This is why I wat... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’ve seen reports that no one in Australia caught shiny unown during the Go Fest makeup hours. Did Niantic forget to turn on the shiny unown?
I know that many of us grew tired with many of the "heavy-duty" techniques that used to be/still are the norm among many beauty influencers. However, I personally adapted a few of them and they work for me in real life - and I believe many of us had a similar experience. This time, instead of being negative, let's share our positive takes on the "stereotypical beauty guru makeup techniques" and ways in which we made them more fitting to us!
As for me:
How did everyone feel about the makeup for go fest? I feel like I played just as hard as I did during the original go fest and did far better. I came away from this event only getting one shiny from each habitat and I feel like I was experiencing pokémon breaking out and fleeing a lot more than normal. Did anyone else have a similar experience?

I have awful, awful, AWFUL vision. I've always wanted one of those big, beautiful wooden vanities with the giant light up mirror... but I can't see anything, especially eyeshadow, from the mirror to chair with those.
I have one of those tiny LED mirrors that I put atop a Clorox wipe container so it's eyelevel, I also put it like 6-5 inches away from my face. I wish I could post pictures cause it's hilarious.
And yes: I have tried contacts. They're awful. Considering my astigmatism they give you contacts that you have to put in a specific way.... I CANNOT SEE THE LITTLE .005% CHANGE IN SHADE THAT TELLS YOU WHICH SIDE GOES UP OR DOWN. I had to strain my eye to literal explosion just to put them in. I can't even see in the first place, how am I supposed to see that?? I don't know how anyone does it.
This is an odd statement. What is your take about makeup in America being too much. I never really thought about there being a different almost cultural take on makeup style.
I’m struggling to pare down what I have and am curious how you went about this. I only wear makeup for special occasions but even still I feel like I have too much. I don’t want to waste it if I can help it- but thinking about in the future when I need to replace it- how to do with less.
Edit: included my list, then commas and sentence about not wanting to waste 👌
3 eye shadow palettes and two brushes, One liquid and one powder foundation, One contour palette, One mascara, Two eye liners: one purple and one black, Setting spray, Liquid highlighter, Lip plumper serum, Lip scrub, Plain chapstick.
Alright, before we start this story, I’ll just say that I’m 19 and she just turned 22, we’re both still living at home while we go to college.
So I’ve always been really cautious about sharing my makeup. In theatre in high school, I got pink-eye the week of a show because someone used my eyeshadow brush without telling me, so ever since then I’ve been really protective over my makeup. For the sake of helping my sister’s argument, I will say this: I have a LOT of makeup. I justify it through theatre: I don’t want to toss something I might end up needing for a show down the road. Still, even having said that, I’m still overstocked on eyeshadow, eyeliner, highlight, blush & primer.
It started when my sister got her first serious girlfriend, which was only at the end of 2019. She’s never taken an interest in makeup before, but suddenly she wanted to. The first time, she didn’t ask me, and accidentally smashed the red color in a palette I had JUST bought that day. I told her she cou... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm not saying it looks bad on other people, because it doesn't, but on me.. yeah no. It feels weird and I don't recognize myself, which makes me panic.
...Unless you're enjoying not wearing makeup. Do you, boo!
But if you want to wear it, now is the time to experiment with a few different products, powders, foundations, setting sprays, etc., and to scream from the rooftops when you find a combo that works for you! We've pressured the makeup industry to create insane formulas for mascaras that stay on when we want and come off easily when we want, eyeshadow primers that can fight the hoodiest and oiliest of lids, and liquid lips that can moisturize and stay put!
NASA needs us, guys! We are a huge part of what drives research into seemingly impossible substances with completely unknown broader-reaching applications! This is a perfect opportunity to experiment with, and demand more, crazy stuff, like makeup that will not move under a sweaty mask!
