Makeup to cover up black eye

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
What;s the best thing I could use to cover up a black eye? Is there anything I can use. I've never worn make-up before.

Re: Makeup to cover up black eye

Ouch, sorry to hear about the black eye! I'd recommend trying a full coverage concealor like MAC's Studio Finish concealor. It all depends on your skin tone, but I've found it easiest to cover bruises using a more pink/peach based concealor (NW in MAC talk). I have people come by my counter all the time to ask for help covering bruises, so I'd definitely suggest going to a store in person to get matched.

Hope this helps and welcome to MUT!

Wow.. Holy Smokes I'm in the wrong place. I didn't realize what this place is. I'm actually a guy and I did a search on the web for "make-up" and I ended up here. After looking around there alot of hot women in here. Anyway thanks for the advice.

LMAO! That is the funniest thing I have ever heard in here "oops...I'm really a dude". I was wondering if we were dealing with an abused woman! I was concerned. I am pleased that it was just a polite guy who got knocked in the eyeball...not that getting punched is a good thing...but boys will be boys. I am still chuckling over here!

Re: Makeup to cover up black eye

I get the e-mail updates.

I looked around on y'alls site and I must say that I had no idea that make-up could be so complicated. With all the choices available its no wonder it takes an hour to buy a stick of lipstick.
I will never complain again to any woman that it takes entirely too long to put on make-up after I have seen the results you lovely ladies have posted. I know some women that need to join this site and I will be sure to send them the link, I doubt they have any idea either.

Don't think for a second I haven't already thought of that. I think I just hit the jackpot here. No more misread hidden messages for me. I've got a leg up on the competition now.

I'd recommend Dermablend, it covers everything and is waterproof. BTW I find it hard to believe you didn't realize where you were until AFTER you went thru the whole registration process....don't you have a girlfriend, a mother, a sister, a daughter, a wife- someone female, the lady who sells you your coffee at Dunkin Donuts, that you can ask what would cover a black eye?

Maybe you don't even have a black eye, and your're using it as an excuse to infiltrate our little world here....you can admit that you like makeup, no one here cares or will judge. Feel free to let your hair down, or put womens panties on your head, or whatever it is that you are into.

Re: Makeup to cover up black eye

Well it didn't work for me. I got some stuff called "Clarins" I think, they didn't have that other stuff. Lady at the counter was not helpful. Anyway it covered up the black eye kinda, but half of my face didn't look like the other half. Going to a friends house today and she says she can fix it. Normally this wouldn't matter, but this is a bad week for me to have one.

Re: Makeup to cover up black eye

:clap You seem so cool! Maybe we need a sweetie like you for the male option. I think the women on this site greatly out number the men....so help those guys out by staying! Also it is a good idea to have some general knowledge of make-up. Nice to have you Shady!
