I think it's kinda gross that you don't wash your hair, but I'm of the opinion that change isn't a bad thing and can be fun. You've got the rest of your life to be platinum blonde anyway. Or get a wig.

Maybe any of you anons, who use natural wigs and extensions will find this documentary about it interesting.

I have hime bangs and the side bangs part was getting a little long so I cut it but I cut too much and now they don't reach my jaw anymore and I look like pic related. I want to go back.
It looks slightly endearing but mostly it just looks stupid. I feel like a little kid who tried to cut her own hair.
Also sorry for resurrecting thread. I guess I should contribute somehow:
I've found that when I make a braid before sleeping and wet it with a bit of water I can get pretty waves that hold the entire day. I hope it works for you all too if you try it.

Anonymous 3765

Lul, I cut my hair like this on purpose because I like how mod and futuristic it looked, though I made sure the bottoms went in a razor sharp slant upward. To each their own. It'll grow out fast.

Anonymous 3768

>the bottoms went in a razor sharp slant upward
Oh, that sounds very cool.

How common is it to have bangs in your countries? Here there are some kids and a few older women with bangs but barely any young women, I was always the only one in my class with bangs and I can recall only ~2 other girls from my school that had bangs. Are bangs more common elsewhere?


bras Anonymous 3569[Reply]

do you wear bras? why or why not? (also do you guys cover your nips if not?)
personally i don't wear bras but i cover my nipples, partially out of respect for those that would rather not see my nipples and partially because it hurts when it's cold lol

i have some clothes that don't require a bra but a lot of my friends/family say it's because my nipples are different.
i went braless for 2 years and it was pretty liberating. now i only wear bras when needed for certain outfits and when i do, my bras are wireless and have minimal padding.

Anonymous 3601

I have to wear tight or sports bra, I hate the feeling of my boobs not being squished dowm

Anonymous 3758

Is not wearing bras common? I thought nearly all women wear them.(YOU CAN'T SIT WITH US)

Anonymous 3762

I think it's becoming more common with time. A lot of my friends don't wear bras whenever they get the chance, but they typically have smaller boobs. When I know I'm gonna wanna be comfortable or wearing a shirt that I know won't show my nipples, I don't wear a bra.

Im in a similar situation as >>3574, I wear bras cause I feel like it gives my boobs better shape cause they're cone-like and I hate it /: I still haven't found a good bikini to wear that makes them look nice and round and not flat or cone shaped

Anonymous 3763

I wear a bra always except when sleeping, I feel uncomfortable and very insecure without a bra.
Do you people really find bras uncomfortable? I always see those comics on the internet where a woman comes home and the first thing she does is she throws her bra away somewhere. But I just can't relate to that.

Use bumper plates for deadlifts (and rows). Use regular plates for other barbell exercises.

Don't use barbells for upper body exercises. Weighted chin-ups, handstand/pike push ups, and assisted one-arm push ups work just fine. As for lower body, barbell squats and deadlifts are pretty much the only way you'll get to work with a lot of resistance, but like, you're putting a ton of weight on top of your spine with squats. Deadlifts are also notorious for causing back injuries.

You will NEED to film yourself for form checks if you're not getting a trainer. Just with a barbell squat, if your back is bending, you're not reaching proper depth, your back isn't tight, you're not looking at the right place, you're mixing up low and high bar, you're holding your breath, all of that can be okay with low weight but dangerous at higher numbers.

Anonymous 2997

If you're putting one 45 pound plate or more on each end, go with the long, thick bars. You can always ask the receptionist too, I would have some questions about the bar on the right honestly.

Anonymous 3084

My new goal is to be able to do a handstand pushup.

I'm aware this will be a very hard challenge, but I'm giving myself a two year time frame for it. I just want to feel completely in control of my body. I think it will be such a wonderful feeling when I can finally do it.

Also on topic but also slightly off topic, lately I've been seeing exercise as less "I want to be lean" or "I want to be ripped" and more "I want to be healthy". I think this is more positive and a better way to look at things.

Is pic related a meme?

Reddit raves about it and the book itself claims to be based on hard science but when I flipped to the diet section the macro recommendations are absolutely insane. Protein ridiculously high, fat too low. Makes me think whoever wrote this book has absolutely no idea how female bodies work. I'm extremely skeptical about the rest of the book now.

Anonymous 3761

Well, it's always good to get as much proteins as you can, but I'm not sure why people always want to avoid eating fat, like that's what puts on the pounds. It's more sugars and carbs that bring you down, these days. Never a good idea to follow a fad diet, anyway. It's good you're looking to get fit, though!

How To Look Good Without Makeup Anonymous 3625[Reply]

i'm planning on ditching makeup and start focusing on skincare and enhancing my features naturally.
any tips? i've watched a few videos besides this one and i'm looking forward to trying it out. i've been obsessed with the whole natural beauty no makeup look.
9 posts and 2 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.

Anonymous 3723

yeah that's one of the things i think about too!

for me personally it doesn't matter what's in or trendy. it's just a personal preference to look good and be hygienic or put in effort to look presentable in the way you want. it makes a lot of people happy to look good outside and therefore makes people happy inside as well. emotionally, mentally, physically, self-esteem etc. so i'd say it does do something good for the world. it makes people happy and that's a lot better than self-loathing, laziness, depression, insecurity, and all that jazz.

Anonymous 3750

It feels pretty damn good when I take off my makeup. I get to see a different version of my face. Maybe I'm less conventionally attractive because I don't look glam anymore, but I like how I look more youthful and plain just as much. It's a nice contrast. For what it's worth, I usually spend my weekends with no makeup on and I don't wear makeup for work, only college so I appear older. I get an equal amount of compliments on my cake face versus my non-caked face either way.

Right now I feel good about my appearance, though. I'm sure tomorrow I'd write about how ugly I am both ways. But it doesn't rest on whether I'm wearing makeup or not. I do get insecure when people who know me by "one" face see me with the "other" face. It feels like they're seeing a side of me I've decided to conceal. That's the main way wearing makeup affects me.

Anonymous 3752

But how do you determine what looks "good"? I'm so skeptical of this because when I see people saying "I do it for me" i'm like really? you spend all this extra time and money to do for you what every single makeup company and celebrity and advertisement tells you looks good?
the only time I believe this is when I see people with intense goth makeup in public. it makes people happy to look good outside because people are vain af and treat pretty people better. it makes me happy inside to do something valuable with my time, like make myself smarter, help out a friend, teach someone something I know, or doing something kind.
also LOVING the assumption that the opposite of caring about your appearance is self-loathing and depression. might wanna do some more introspection.

Anonymous 3754

nta, but I wear makeup because I like to wear formal sort of clothing (pencil skirts, blouses, etc.) and it completes the look I'm after. In the end it probably is shallow nonsense, but I've always liked feeling put together and fancy even just to go to the mall. Sometimes I also just like getting dressed up for the sake of it, not even to go outside at all.
It may seem like a waste of time to you, but the enjoyment is derived from matching different colours and shapes to discover something that you find works as a cohesive whole tailored for your own tastes and body/face. I can't speak for people who strictly follow trends, but for me it's mostly for aesthetic pleasure. I like to create art for the same reason.

I agree anon was getting touchy saying that you're lazy for not wearing makeup, but getting on our backs for wasting time is equally touchy. There is no objective measure for what is the best use of free time. Humans do not exist for any purpose despite what value you have arbitrarily assigned to certain actions and hobbies. You can make goals for yourself, as we all do, but they do not apply to every person on Earth. Within the parameters of the law and other societal functions we get to decide for ourselves what we value most, based on personal principles and benefits gained. I have judgments I can pass on many people since they don't adhere to my moral code, but I know deep down that it's irrelevant.

Anonymous 3756

>Tbh most people who don't wear makeup don't give a rat's ass how beautiful they are.

I'm more inclined to believe that they're just comfortable with their natural appearance. Some people are genetically blessed, like it or not.

How do you get by with these feelings?
How do you keep going?
What do your family, friends, and loved ones think?
Do you think you will recover? Are you in a recovery stage?

My ED is back and I want to kill myself.

Anonymous 3751

Why tf are mods so lenient on avatarfagging. Please fucking stop.

I gained 5 lbs in 3 days after slowly losing 15 lbs over a period of 3 months. I want to shoot myself. I was so close to being in the 14s and now I'm in the 16s. Jesus fuck why is this so hard.

I saw pictures of myself today. I want to vomit. I look so much thinner. My face looks taut and pulled back. My wrists and hands look dinosaur-like. What freaks me out is that even before my full-blown ED, I was underweight and looked like it, too. So, what's the problem, right? Well, at those times, now, all I see is fat and bloatedness in the mirror. The only way I can see myself as thin is when I see photos taken by other people of me. Selfies make me look fat in my eyes. It kills me I can say I look thin and know it, but completely not believe it. I feel trapped. How do I undo how I view myself? I may not have consciously had disordered eating, but I've always never been able to look at my body in a mirror the way it really looks.

sorry for the dumb, teen-tier ranting

You need to stop worrying about losing weight, and start thinking about packing muscle. Please start lifting weights. It may sound crazy, but it's a good way to refocus your stress.

It's definitely your lack of contact with men that's doing this to you. You're literally turning into one of those women from those stupid body spray commercials that aired a long time ago. You're probably not the only one.

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.
