Strabismus Anonymous 2966[Reply]

I was wondering if any other miners struggle with this issue. My right eye points a little outwards (exotropia) and although it's not that terrible it bugs the hell out of me still. Currently thinking about eye-patching my good eye so I can strengthen the muscles on my other one. No idea how effective that'll be though. Does anyone know any other fixes?

Anonymous 2970

I have a cross eye, through my eye turns inward a bit. You could try eye exercises to see if you can try strengthening it as well.
What seemed to help me from making it less noticeable was making my weaker eye (the crossed one) the dominant eye when it came to seeing and such. So maybe eye-patching your eye will help as it will force your other eye to pick up.
But I think before trying anything, it might be a good idea to try to get advice from a optometrist.

That would weaken them, lol.

Yes, I have one eye that goes slightly the other direction. Nobody has ever mentioned it, but I can see they aren't perfectly aligned like they once were. Occurred after a really bad eye infection.

Anonymous 3135


i have the hypotropia one. my family never worried about it (no one in the family wore glasses, so no one thought i had a problem). years later, it turns out that my left eye is blind as shit and my right eye has been doing all the work. its either contacts or glasses. i said glasses… greatest decision ever.

the issue with my weird eyes was that it was soooo obvious. but when i started wearing my glasses that changed. you'd have to be really paying attention to my eyes to notice (at least in my case, your might be different). i'll wear a dark/vampy lipstick and all the attention goes to my mouth and not to my eyes, thank god. i can be wearing neon eyeshadow and the glasses still make it look normal and daytime. glasses are a blessing.

i tried fixing the weird eye with eyeliner/eyeshadow techniques for years and it never did anything. the moment i started wearing glasses the problem stopped being so god damn terrible and noticeable. again, if i take them off/get real close people can tell, but its not as bad.

do you wear glasses, op? i'd recommend it. getting glasses that make you feel cute can change the game for you tbh.


Makeup advice Anonymous 313[Reply]

If this thread is redundant with the other makeup thread, feel free to tell me and I'll delete this one.

Let's ask for advice and answer each others' questions about makeup, and maybe about skincare too.

I'll start. I almost never wear makeup (at most maybe some colored lip balm and mascara), and while I take care of my skin, I feel like I should start using BB cream or foundation and/or mattifying powder or primer. But I don't know where to start with this, there are so many products that I don't know which ones could be useful and which ones would be a waste of money. By the way, I don't trust beauty bloggers and youtubers because there's a good chance they're sponsored to recommend some products and brands, I want sincere advice, which is why I ask here.

If I only want to hide my large pores and acne scars (not the colorful ones, they're more like some holes in the skin), should I only focus on some mattifying powder or a primer, or should I use one of these with a foundation or a BB cream? Also, which brands would you recommend for these products? I know korean BB cream is the best but I would rather be recommended things I can buy in stores and not just online, so I can try it to see if it's the right color for my skin.

What do you think about Nyx's lipsticks and eyeshadows? I'm interested in the NYX I love you so mochi palette, the one with the more "nude" shades. I'm mostly looking for something that would stay all day long on my face.

Anonymous 3129

Never tried the eyeshadows, but the lip creams are amazing. :)

Anonymous 3132

How long do the lip creams last? Not the tube or lipstick, I mean once you apply it to your lips? I'm a bit worried I'll buy something that won't work very well since I'm not used to makeup yet.

Anonymous 3133

I recommend you go to sephora/nyx or wherever they are selling that brand and try one on yourself and see how long it lasts. Every person is different. People always rave about how Jeffree Star's liquid lips last soooo long but on me they dont last that long (although they are amazing I have to say). I mean they last long time but near the center of my mouth they always fade qickly

Anonymous 3134

That's what I wanted to do today. So I went to Nyx a bit before going to work and wasn't wearing make up but testing lipsticks isn't really hygienic. I know when I went to Mac once they tried lipsticks on me but they washed them everytime they had to use them on customers. But I never saw any employee in Nyx or Sephora do that so I was a bit wary. I ended up buying the I love you so mochi palette and a metallic lip cream at Nyx, I found the metallic lip cream lasted longer on my hand that the normal lip cream.

I have a bob for around 3 years now and i never once had it shorter in the back, it's pretty easy to avoid. Get a good hairdresser and tell them that you want your back to be longer than the front or same length as front and with a round end and you'll get a really cute hairstyle.
I always bring pics of kiko mizuahara with me since her bob tends to be exactly what i like (rounded at the bottom, slightly longer on the back) and she has had so many styles of bob hair that i can always find one if i want to change it up lmao.

>>3054 this length is so perfect. My hair is long AF at the moment and I hate it. I don't feel me. I can't do anything with it. Just feels witchy and shit.

Does anyone have their natural color actually clash with their skin?

My skin is fair but warm and my jet black hair just looks awful, i look grey-ish and corpse like.
I want to go for a honey-ish brown like pic related but i have a huge problem.

My thick black eyebrows.

Does anyone have any tips on how to deal with all that?

Anonymous 3096

While I've never done it myself, one of my friends is really into cosplay, which I tried with her one time. I had the same problem as you where my eyebrows were just way too dark in order to get colored with anything she would normally use, she suggested bleaching my eyebrows so that I could more easily get them the right color but I was way to anxious to have chemicals that close to my eyes. If you're worried about your eyebrows not matching you may want to look into bleaching and dyeing your eyebrows as well.

Anonymous 3128


I used to bleach my brows when I went ginger, but mine were thin and sparse though I had the same problem as you (very low-saturation colouring, dark eyes, ashy brown brows, pale and neutral yellow skin with warm chestnut hair that has a coppery red sheen in the sunlight thanks to my ginger mum).
I look good in dark, muted colours like pic related but my hair sticks out like a sore thumb.


Medical Help Thread Anonymous 3110[Reply]

Here's how it works:

Post a description of your symptons and/or a picture of the thing you are worried about, and wait for other anon's replies of what is that that you're possibly experiencing.

Of course, no anon's answer is a substitute for an actual professional seeing you IRL, but they can tell you if you should go to the doctor immidiately or else you'll die or if you can wait a couple of weeks in case you need it.

I bet there are some anons here that work on the medical field, so that would be even better!

How did you come to terms with being tall? (how to be more confident and comfortable)
Clothes that suit you the best?
Maybe other specific hair or beauty routines and styles?
Diet and excercise? (since there are differences depending on height/build)

I am 5'9 and sometimes it sucks how big I am naturally next to men. I am 140lbs and I am very busty, so it is not like I am a planet.

It sucks that I am not confident in any man picking me up. On other Hand I love how long my legs are and the aesthetics of tall women.

Being tall is sometimes great, sometimes shit.

I don't like my face, but it's hard for me to pinpoint exactly what parts I like/dislike, and I don't think I'd really feel any better if I changed something. I don't get how people can divide up their whole face into parts and have opinions about what shape they are. I forget the specifics whenever I'm not looking at it. My face honestly looks different to me almost every time I look in the mirror too. I feel like I can't perceive it objectively.

Anonymous 3102

I used to think my nose was too big for my face (it's not large, but my nasal bone is big, so my nose is "crooked", I think that's the term), but nowadays I'm okay with it. The fact that I already have a nasal obstruction that would get worse if I did a nose job also made me not want to do it lmao. Today the only thing I'd like to change in my face would be my chin, I think it's a bit weak. I've come to grow more okay with it too, though. Since I'm very skinny it doesn't call much attention anyways.

Piercings and other body modifactions thread Anonymous 2912[Reply]

Do you have any piercings/body mods? Are you happy with them?Planning to have more in the future?
What are your thoughts about them?Let's discuss.

I have 7 holes in my ears so far (two for industrial piercing,one for tragus,two for earlobe and two for cartilage)I plan a smiley piercing and one daith,nothing more.I always wanted piercings around my mouth (snake bites etc.) but i fear that it'll affect my career in a bad way so i mostly avoid my face.

Cartilage is a BITCH because you tend to sleep on one side or the other, so youll def end up sleeping on it and then next day it'll be sore and maybe oozing a little. Then by night it heals again but then you sleep on it again and so the cycle continues.

My easiest piercings (and less painful, believe it or not) were my tongue one and my clit hood one. Both were fast, hurt for only a sec, and easy to take care of.

Anonymous 3009

Never saw the appeal in body mods like piercings, tattoos or worst of them all: Ear tunnels.

earrings can be nice looking but everything beyond that just looks stupid.

>Ear tunnels

I don't see anything wrong with who wants them, but I don't understand why. They look so ugly and aesthetically terrible unless you're going for an EDGY look. Anyone with ear tunnels here to explain why?

Just because you dont like it doesnt mean its stupid dude.

Anonymous 3098

I have a few cartilage piercings, they're not that bad imo. I've found my lobe piercings to have been more bleedy. IME cartilage throbs for a few hours right afterwards. My worst piercing was a misplaced industrial, I got it without glasses on and didn't think to account for them… but that's my fault. My conch didn't even hurt as badly as that one, and I got a fairly big gauge for that.

My easiest piercing was the last cartilage (helix) I got a couple years ago. No pain at all, I almost actually forgot about it.

As long as you're not lazy about aftercare and sleep on your back for the first few weeks, it'll be fine.

I'm trying to get into a normal sleep routine but it's summer break and I'm sleeping more than 12 hours a day; up to 16 TBH. My friends always make jokes about how much I sleep but I feel super unproductive and would like to be awake to do personal dev 9-5 whilst I'm not doing anything else

Anonymous 1899

I have a pretty odd/bad sleep routine, which only gets supported by my job now.

I always had issues going to bed early.
My usual "tiredness" routine looked like this, when I still went to school:
>waking up early morning (between 6-7am), feel like shit
>feeling awake first at 1pm
>starting to get really tired around 3pm, often gave up and took a nap as soon as I got home
>gets better around 8/9pm
>starting to feel good around the 10pm mark
>super energized and creative from then on onwards
>start to get tired at 1.30/2am
>rinse and repeat

I knew I was going to bed too late, but I wanted to use the few hours I actually felt full of energy.

I've been changing screen colours lately on my phones/ipad but my friend told me of an app for my PC and laptops.

If you're the type to roll around in bed endlessly and feel exhausted when you wake up, I recommend sleeping on the floor as that helps me a lot.
