What could my makeup-less face use?

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

 

I'm new to this forum and I am curious about makeup and what it can do to enhance the face. I don't usually wear it unless I have a big event to go to or something, so I'm very inexperienced.

 

Currently I own e.l.f. mascara, a Physician's Formula eyebrow pencil, NYC and NYX lipsticks, and a Physician's Formula eyeliner. I'm all about drugstore cruelty-free products ;)

 

I'm uploading a pic of what my face usually looks like: makeup-free. Get ready lol.

 

Any suggestions for how I could spruce up my face?

Not an answer to your question, but I'm jealous of your hair.  It's so curly and shiny and pretty!

Your skin is really nice so I wouldn't try to mask that.  Maybe a tinted moisturizer like Laura Mercier, a pink lip gloss to give your lips a little shine, and perhaps a blush. Keep using the mascara. Even if I don't wear shadow I feel mascara makes your lashes so much nicer.

When I first started trying to do everyday makeup, I went with a tinted moisturizer, mascara and a cheek and lip stain with some lip balm.  It's nice because you only have to buy one extra product for cheeks and lips, plus you can stick it on in the morning and not worry about it the rest of the day.

You are pretty Rita :) 

 

I don't really agree with all that has been suggested here- since you have a naturally blushed cheeks, I wouldn't add blush on that, it will look too much, that unless your foundation neutralize your redness completely. 

Your skin does look great so you can really do fine with just a BB or CC cream.

If your cheeks stay pinkish after applying those, avoid using a blush, and if you do want to use one anyway, use a light pink one.  And if you use a foundation that completely hides the pink tone you can use what ever blush you like! 

 

I think that light shimmery shadows will look very pretty on you, maybe you can try the NUDE palette from physician's formula. (I'm attaching images so you could see what I mean)

 

And I agree with the suggestion to apply a lip gloss, I think you can really play with the colors here:) 

 

I hope that was helpful!  :smileno:

If I were you I might try to find a light brow powder! You're pretty as it is, though. :D Also maybe Palladio's tinted lip balm in Brownie?

I agree with the others that a BB or CC cream would be perfect for your skin type since it looks pretty fine naked x) It might be just the camera, but your face looks a bit oily on the picture - a setting powder would help solve that problem :)

I would deffo try to put more focus to your eyes, maybe use a brown eyeliner for the waterline since you have sort of a cat shaped eyes a black one might make them look smaller. A white eyeliner or eyeshadow to the inner corners of your eyes would really open up your eyes as well.

Also brown eyeshadow never fails anyone ;) You also seem like the type who could get away with wearing a velvet red lipstick cause of your skin tone.

And like the other's say your hair looks so beautiful those curls are to die for!

Just stopping in to say you are gorgeous!!!! No wonder you don't wear makeup!

 

Anyway, I say don't use any foundation, BB cream, or tinted moisturizer. If you have good skin, no need to even it out.

 

You actually don't need blush- your cheeks are rosey as they are.

 

Here's what I would do:

 

*Fill in brows with a powder. NYX eyebrow cake powder in 'blonde' would be perfect for you!

 

*Mascara maybe. I hear Physician's Formula makes good mascara.

 

*Lip tint or lipstick, although I don't know what colors would suit you.

 

Very pretty!

As someone well old enough to be your mom, let me echo that you are beautiful !  Your skin, hair, and smile make you glow.  :-)

 

I'd suggest a light brown brow wax/powder to make your eyebrows really frame your eyes.  Then some mascara, not too dark, and some lip gloss.  Then see if you feel that's enough.

    • My Netflix subscription is cancelled. I was only allowed the free month. I wanted so badly to watch a new show called Ares that came out Friday. I did not think I would get to see it before my subscription expired, but I did. I was able to watch it on the last day! I was so happy, because I'm not allowed to renew Netflix per my no buy rules. And I can't live with exceptions to my rules. Ares I loved and hated at the same time. I loved the cast, acting, sets, costumes, hair and makeup, exteriors, and story line. Ares is a great story about a poor and stressed college girl joining an Illuminati type of cult, in Amsterdam. But I hated all the gory horror, and they killed off so many interesting characters. The gory horror is hard to watch, and could be triggering to some. I know the gruesome elements are symbolizing something important in the story, but it's disturbing. The first episodes were good at developing the story, but at the end it was exhausting with all the violence. I think it would have been great as just a psychological drama. Still I'm so glad I got to watch it without violating my rules. Back to watching no buy videos on YouTube now. 
    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
    • Today was pay day. I paid $22.90 extra on my credit card. I realized I'm now halfway done with my goal for the month - to pay $100.00 toward my credit card (including minimum payment). It's halfway through the month, so I am right on track! I made a $30 payment last week. I got deodorant, the only beauty item I need to replace. I ended up not getting the fancy new Secret or an Avon set, but just regular Secret Paris Rose from Dollar General. It was $5 - I thought that was a little high in price. I had this deo before during my No Buys, so it's a tradition. I didn't feel like spending extra or taking the time to order online. Too lazy to fill out the order pages! I sure am out of practice shopping! 
    • What am I wishing for right now? Yesterday I was looking at the Yves Rocher French website to see if they have anything new that might come to the US. I found something to love, but not a thing this time. In France, Yves Rocher has special salons. They have some fabulous sounding treatments. One I really fell in love with was an eyebrow treatment. They put eye patches under your eyes, then while those are on, they shape the eyebrows. After all is done, they apply an eye cream. That's what I'd love right now, and I suppose I could copy it at home with what I already have. 
    • It feels like it has been January for a long time, but we're only halfway through the month. There's still time to do a lot of things this month!  I have some empties! I finished my three DHC foil packets, the two mini micellar waters from my Yves Rocher Advent Calendar, and my Neutrogena Shampoo mini.  Now using up: June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Shampoo mini Freeman Cucumber and Pink Salt Masque packet MAC Strobe Cream mini in Pinklite - This is a really nice cream that has a bit of pink color corrector and a bit of luminosity. It's great for a no makeup routine! Very pretty, and feels wonderful on the skin. I got it in an Ipsy bag.  I had the Freeman cucumber masque in my project use it up in January 2018. Now I have another one to use. There is a lot of product in the packet. It is enough for several weeks of use. But it is a clay masque, so it gets dry and messy in the packet. I recall having a hard time using it all up before. So I opened the packet all around the edges, and used a spatula to transfer the contents into an empty jar so it will stay fresh and be easier to use up. I'm looking forward to using it with my new masque brush! I will be having some fun masque and movie nights!
