What in Makeup Do You Refuse To Do?

Recommended Posts

For example, I will never never never ever go back to using sponge applicators for eyeshadows & I can't see myself using a flat paddle synthetic brush to apply my foundation or concealer. There are so many rounded synthetic brushes that do flawless work & my regular foundation brushes (ie. Mac 190) are used mainly for applying moisturizer or primers.

I refuse to use liquid foundation. I use powder foundation all the time, I hate the feeling of having liquid foundation on my skin, and it feels like all my pores are being clogged. With powder foundation, my face feels and looks more natural with excellent coverage. 

I also refuse to use sponges for applying makeup anywhere!

Overpluck my eyebrows! At one time it was super trendy with überskinny eyebrows and I plucked them way too much, it looked ridiculous. I also refuse to jump on the beauty blender bandwagon, since it just looks like an overpriced sponge to me.

I'm surprised by the ones who refuse to use sponge applicators for eye makeup. They are excellent for packing on shimmers and glitters, any type of eyeshadow that has fall out. You'll get way less fall out than you will with a brush. Try it with your PITA shadows and just use your brushes for blending.

Straight black eyeliner. I really suck at putting eyeliner on, and on me, pure dark black eyeliner makes me look ghastly since it's so harsh against my fair skin. So, I typically stick to browns and silvery grays. It's a shame, since the Urban Decay eyeliner in Perversion has been calling my name...

Haha, same here. 

 

And to add to these, I also refuse to use pale lipsticks that look almost like concealers. I think they look horrible!

I LOVE nude/pale lipsticks, especially with a lipgloss over it that has a hint of color. So beautiful. Especially with a smokey eye since you wanna keep the rest a bit more tame then your eyes.

 

I refuse to have two toned lips!!! Like, using a darker shade lip liner, and a lighter lipstick. SUCH a horrible combination, I don't know why that was ever a trend. :P

Instead of using the black liner just by itself(especially if you feel you lack the ability to put it on correctly(but btw that just takes practice you'll get it!), try putting it on kinda messy but closer to the lash line, then use a smudge brush or just your finger(gently) to smudge it out. It will look much neater, and a lot less harsh.

I won't wear false eyelashes. And I won't use any eyeliner other than liquid on my upper lid. I like the super-dark, sharp line (for near the bottom lashes, other types of liner are fine). I never wear just one eyeshadow at a time - not since middle school! I always, always have three or four shadows on at once.

Great advice! I typically just don't wear eyeliner, but I will definitely try this out next time I do. :)

Pencil eyeliner. I only use a gel liner applied with a thin brush.

I cannot stand pencil eyeliner on the top lid. I always use either dark eyeshadow or gel/cream eyeliner. They just don't look the same & are harder to work with imo. I do like them on the waterline. The only excellent pencil I found was the Tarte aqua gel eyeliner. It's like lining your eyes with a pencil gel liner & it's just as dark & pigmented, gorgeous. However, its really soft & gets used up very quickly so it's expensive imo.

    • Oh,  I want on vacation. It will make me happy)
    • I have some more low quality photos to post! 😏 Bottom photo shows my little Avon haul. You can see my Rare Pearls deodorant, and also my pink Himalayan salt infused toothbrush, from a Korean brand called Perioe. Also my belif samples. Very pretty little haul, making buying necessary hygiene items a little treat. (See post above - talks about how New Avon - the United States Avon - was purchased by a major, major Korean beauty company, and now has all kinds of beautiful Korean cosmetics along with the classics and Avon favorites! Very interesting development.) Top photo: Finally finishing some little samples and starting some new ones from the stash! I finished Freeman pink salt and cucumber masque packet (it took weeks to finish), and I'm now using the Eve Lom Rescue Masque mini tube. I love the Eve Lom masque.  Finished the Porefessional mini, and ready to begin the Porefessional Pearl Primer sample. Excited to try that. Only one more application left of Blow Pro Weather Girl mini and Yves Rocher Body Scrub mini! Finished the mini Yves Rocher At the Heart of Pine Trees Shower Gel mini, and have started using up the Argan Rose shower gel mini!  My job is again encouraging voluntary cut in hours, so I'm working one day less per week. Also this week I lost a lot of time/income due to the flu. Everyone in my office has it. That's okay, because I'm going back to my seasonal job in about ten days! I'm so excited! I'm putting together a new timetable! That will help me pay off my credit card for sure. And I love the job.  I even made a dentist appointment at a dental office I've been wanting to try. I'm trying to make the most of the extra time I have from the hours cut. Can't wait for March.       
    • The experience of loans and microloans, I have only negative. After I paid 300% of the amount I originally took, I told myself that I'd rather rely on luck than take this loan again. Therefore, I advise you to better approach the choice of a game resource here https://bingo77usa.com/free-bingo-games and try your luck, which always smiles for beginners.
    • Hello Everyone, Nice to have seen this website and forum. My name is Mitch and I've been wanting to get an eyebrow trimmer, but have no clue of what to use. The wired shopper made recommendations, but of course, I am hoping to have real people talk. If you can share your experience with eyebrow trimmers or if you have a brand you can recommend, I would really appreciate it.   Thank you so much. Mitch
