how to take good outfit pics? Anonymous 7261[Reply]

i honestly have no idea

Anonymous 7264


Oh I'm 10000% bumping because this is so relevant to me rn. I have no idea how to dress anymore. I used to think colour matching would make it ezclap but apparently that's outdated now.

Atm I'm noticing a lot of "everything one colour" stuff. It looks very luxury. Especially in beiges and creams. I just googled, it's called "one tone" outfit.

Interesting gallery here; https://www.harpersbazaar.com/uk/fashion/style-files/g36775/one-tone-dressing/ Saying that I'm working on my confidence atm but I don't think I'm quite there enough to wear some of this stuff.

Also, from a sustainability POV, this is a good trend for capsule wardrobe gals I think. You could mixy matchy some 70s parisian chic in too if you wanna move away from the trend. Sorry if this post comes across as too much info and weird I've taken a lot of modafinil.

i was actually asking if anyone knew how to take photos of their own outfits like pic i provided.
i like how she specifically takes her outfit photos but i was wondering if full body mirror ones would be better or just do it the way she did in the photo, or would it better to go out and have different nice natural backgrounds?

Anonymous 7277

Lmao fuck I'm so sorry.

You can get phone tipods super cheap online! Use that and find a good "area" to take a photo. Apps to crop and splice etc etc.

Mirror pictures don't look as good as the image you showed tbh, she's also cropped her face so the focus is the outfit. I say replicate this style. Just find a good background (or make one, you can get semi-permanent wallpaper for a mini outfit studio)

Sorry again haha

Anonymous 7280

i think you're right about one tone outfits looking luxurious however I think that's only applicable if the individual pieces look expensive as well. otherwise it might look frumpy?
because all the clothing in the article look expensive and designer.

thank you! getting a tripod would definitely help. i plan to crop my face out as well because i want the main focus to be the outfit and if i have head accessories i'll just take a separate headshot photo and post that as well.
any app recommendations? for outfit shoots?


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.

Using my fingers or a brush.

Nars radiant tinted moisturiser covers up my pores beautifully. I just use it with matte powder and setting spray

Anonymous 7275

Sorry for such a late reply, but what kind of brush do you use? I like to use a stipple brush to press the product in and then I blot my under eye area with a beauty blender. If it’s prominent, you might want to use a peach color corrector before hand. Elf has a really good color corrector for a good price

Anonymous 7276


No problem. Thanks for the help - I currently use a small stipple brush, but will check out your suggestions on using a beauty blender and color corrector if needed.

[health] I think I might have vaginismus Anonymous 7222[Reply]

How do I know for certain?

I tried to put in a tampon for maybe the tenth time this weekend when I went to the beach and I literally couldn’t. It burned and was just extremely painful the whole time. I’ve never had sex but I was molested as a kid. What do I even do? Will sex be really bad forever? I kind of find it hot because I am a masochist mentally but I am worried that it might be really bad for my husband in the future if I am really scared and hate sex because it hurts so bad every time

Anonymous 7223

I’m on the same boat. I think both of us ought to see a gynecologist, because that’s what other anons keep suggesting.

Anonymous 7250

Does it hurt around the entrance (when it stretches/something touches it too hard) or inside your vagina when anything is inserted?

Can you be more specific about where it hurts?

Anonymous 7252

Vaginal pain following trauma is very common. Definitely talk to your gyno about it and also look into seeing a pelvic floor physical therapist if you can.

Anonymous 7253

If I try to insert anything inside it is very painful and feels like a burning, stinging pain

Yeah thinking that's the best option

Interesting, never heard of those

Anonymous 7255

I agree with her, gyno + pelvic floor therapy will help you learn to relax the muscles that are tensing up. Sometimes due to past sexual trauma your body associates sex with pain/abuse/etc so the muscles tense up automatically. You may need to unlearn that response.

How does knowing you will never look like this make you feel?
>me: like shit

I'm a hopeless weeb and kboo so for years I've tried to reach asian beauty standards - which caused me to look like a hopeless and depressed mess.
I'm very tall and naturally athletic, I will never look small and dainty, so I decided that trying to reach stacy looks is more realistic for me.
Problem, I'm very pale and also don't like insta baddie makeup. I'd still love to look cute and youthful (which I'm not).
Is there a way to look beautiful without being a short, cute, babyfaced asian or being a curvy, tanned american blonde?
I don't fit any category, I just look so ugly and boring, people constantly tell me I'm invisible. I'm also a former ana, so accepting that I have boobs and hips, and showing cleavage is extremely difficult for me…

Has anybody of you come closer to your dream of finally being a pretty and popular girl?
Are there any tall thin and pale (brunette) stacies without extreme makeup whom I could look up to, does that exist?

Anonymous 7248

It only looks good because they're filthy rich and constantly slathered in products and filters. I'm sure you already know that, but I still had to repeat it. Someone like us will never look like this even with the same amount of plastic surgery. You also picked two terrible examples because both of them look really botched. If you've seen Ariana's new lips as of recent, you'll see what I mean - and Dove doesn't even has a nose bridge. She looks freakish.

My advice is top stop spending all your time looking at facetuned, thrice made over, modified like hell celebrities and check out who's considered cute or hot in real life, not the internet.

TL;DR Stacy looks aren't realistic, you're setting yourself up for disappointment

I loved this girl's story, what a wild ride. Wonder what she's up to now.

Anonymous 7251

Are these girls Stacy enough for you? It's hard recommend someone without knowing how exactly you look like.


Anonymous 7259

Tbh now I'm going to have more money coming in, I wouldn't say I want to stacyify myself, but more just improve my overall facial aesthetics.

To start, I will get my eyebrows shaped and then microbladed into a straight, wider brow. This suits me more and makes me look cuter. Then I will get a non-invasive rhinoplasty to balance out my slightly broken, and thus asymmetrical nose; they do this using fillers.

Also considering spray tans, regular facials and tear trough fillers.
But again tbh the end goal isn't to become stacy, I just want to feel ok without makeup on. I feel like I look very masculine without makeup, and even sometimes with makeup on I feel like I look like a tranny or an old porno star, idk it freaks me.

I want to be like a soft stacy maybe? I guess the anons posting art hoe kinda people is the ideal really. Stacy is too… bimbo 2010. It looks passe.

Is it normal for part of your breast (not the nipple) to have a different skin pigment? I have a ~3 cm patch of brownish skin. No pain and no lumpiness.

Have you always had it, or did it just appear recently?

Is it normal to get more acne than usual when you first get on the pill (mine is Isibloom)? Will the acne get better or nah?

Also, I've been spotting terrible and I've been on said pill for over a month now. Other weird effects have been that my boobs are definitely larger, does that eventually go away?


What do you gals think about water fasting? Anonymous 7175[Reply]

Fasting is one way for our body especially the Gastrointestinal tract to heal and to “rest” from all the work. During our fasting state, our body uses glycogen—this is the storage of our reserve energy. After several hours, when all our glycogen stores are depleted, that’s when our body uses fats—hence the weightloss.

Anonymous 7176

nonsense pseudo science. you lose weight because youre in a calorie deficit. which can be achieved by less anorexia-liteᵗᵐ methods

Anonymous 7177

I intermittent fast, but really I'm not sure if it's the fast itself or the fact that I eat less since I have a tinier window to eat. I was a grazing fatty and not a binger so my belly doesn't accommodate 2000+ calories (what I used to consume rip) at once.

Fucking wish I could, lmao. I think I've done so successfully, but only for 24ish hours. I need to try again.

i prefer them to pants tbh, pants never seem to fit me properly, but i dont have to worry about that with skirts. i only ever really wear short ones though, i feel like long ones make me look way shorter than i am

I started wearing skirts from the ages of like 18 - 24 then just stopped when I started wearing skinny jeans. now I'm getting older I'm tired of tight as fuck and uncomfortable jeans and am probably going to go back to skirts. I picked up a really cute one and am looking forward to wearing it! I want to get some chelsea boots to team it up with.

what kind of shoes do miners wear with floaty just above the knee skirts?

Anonymous 7231

i have a weird body shape: im a little tall (5' 9") with slightly broad shoulders a smallish waist and a flat butt and biggish thighs. skinny jeans look terrible on me (i feel like it makes my thighs look like sausages).

i used to hate my frame, but them i started wearing dresses and they drape really nicely. skirts, particularly high-waist ones also really look nice.

i only started figuring this out recently so im still pretty excited

Anyone here have to deal with sciatica pains or at least some kind of lower back ache?
Trying to manage mine without pills/surgery.
Already tried yoga, stretching, physical therapy, etc and the only thing that helps at the moment is weed, but I can't use that everytime it happens

I don't have any experience with inversion tables. I like pullup bars because if I feel pain or any need to suddenly stop, all I have to do is let go of the bar. I don't know if tables have a similar sort of "safety" mechanism.

Haven't had a sciatica flare up in a while

massage therapy really helped but only in conjunction with this really specific stretch. i know you already said you tried stretching, but this one is amazing for sciatica. it's really easy and you should feel it right away. (ignore the lame dude in the video lol)

I think they can look great and they suit so many women. I've always wanted to take the plunge and go super short (like a pixie cut) but I think chin length is short enough for me. overall - they're super cute but not for everyone

woah she looks fantastic with that cut

I love it. I think buzzcuts or bobs look the cutest. Wish I could do that with my hair but it’s pretty curly.
