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