Hello. I seem to be one of those people that very easily looks clownish with makeup. Simple things that universally work for others make me look... overdone? Or just not right. It's taken me years to understand that less is usually more in my particular case. I'm a dark eyed, dark (brown) haired person which according to many people means I should go for black liner/mascara, and that brown is for lighter tones of hair/eyes (at least that's what I keep reading). While I haven't gone and tried a brown mascara or liner yet, I do know that black just somehow isn't looking right? Maybe it's all in my head (I do have BDD/PTSD and in general find it very hard to NOT feel like an ugly ogre) but usually what is an average amount of liner/mascara for others on me looks like I've just gotten ready for the circus. Or at least that's how I feel. I should probably mention that while I have dark eyes and hair, my skin is more on the pale side. Could that be why black is looking too strong on me?
