Makeup is fakeup?
5 posts omitted. Click reply to view.

Anonymous 7468

Makeup is an I teresting thing. I like it a lot, and I find it so cool what people are able to do with it. You can completely change yourself wearing it. Its like clothing, yknow? Its a form of expression. And it makes some women more confident, which is great.

Ive never been one to wear makeup. I did my freshman year of high school, but after a year of that I got sick of it. I honestly can't remember the last time I actually wore it.
But lately ive been seeing imperfections (dark areas on my face, I have this mole I'm self conscious about) and I think I could seriously revamp my face and feel more confident.

But I don't want to, like… Idk, lie to myself. I know I have the freedom to wear or to not wear makeup. It'd be weird, I don't eve know where to begin or what kind to buy.

Its conflicting when I feel like this should be a really straightforward decision. Its like an identity thing.

Leaving the negative stigmatas aside, makeup has a lot of benefits especially when you're getting older.
"As much as necessary, as little as possible." is the key here to avoid looking like Homer shot you with his Makeup Gun. I like it classy and wear it every day.

Yesterday, something terrible happened to me, anon. I got my new glasses, and as soon as I put them on, I surprisingly realized how ugly the optician was. Then I got home and looked at myself in the mirror, only to find that I had a terrible skin, with giant pores and nasty wrinkles on my 31-y-o face. Living without glasses had kept me in a blurred world where everything looked soft. Now it all looks harsh, sharp, with strong contrasts, and of course, I now know that I look way less cute than I thought. I knew I did not have a perfect skin, but this was shocking.

Today I put fondation on before I went to work, and willingly left my glasses at home.

Anonymous 9000

I have the glasses experience every darn time I change them. But I prefer peelings and good face washers than foundation (never bought a bottle). I might make up a little bit my nose because I have some small veing around my nostrils.

Anonymous 9006

I feel bad for contributing to the expectation that women should wear but i love it. I don't wear it everyday and when i do it's no foundation/concealer, only translucent powder. My acne shows but i don't really mind.

I like to play around with colors, eyeliner shape and shadow texture and look soft or sharp when i feel like it. Sometimes i put it on just to hang around, it's like painting on your face.

Maybe go to college after it? seems like the best option and one i've been seeing more women take. It just makes no sense to go to college first, raise kids for years and then go back to work when you've forgotten almost everything / your knowledge might be outdated and you likely have no connections left from college to help you get a job. A year of gap in your resume is already enough for most recruiters to pass you on jobs that require higher education, imagine 4 or more if there's more kids.

Unless they are dumb enough to sign a prenup they likely won't be left destitute overnight though. And it's not like they will have a good paying job outright even with a degree, hell even for people who are fresh out of college, with internships and connections under their belt job hunting is hard. They will probably need to work minimum wage to survive for months or years.

Shit, sorry. Can't delete it now.

I wish young people would dress more modestly, specially at uni.

Anonymous 8986

I wish weird fashion was more acceptable. Ethnic and traditional wear, j-fashion, just… whatever weird shit people feel like wearing.

I don't care if the person is fat or ugly and it hurts my eyes, i love how fashion can be used to express yourself and i would find it beautiful if everyone could do it with weirdness cranked up to 11.

Business casual just makes me want to die and i hate how you can't even wear an a-line dress in my country without people asking if you are going to a party or dinner.

I like skirts over jeans. It's a fun and warm combination, makes me remember being a kid again.

Probably, but it seems like it that would be uncomfortable. You should probably reconsider what you're eating if that's a regular issue.


Sleep patterns Anonymous 4779[Reply]

What time do you wake up?

And do you go to bed at regular times during the week?

Anonymous 4781

Between 5am and 6am now. Am NEET.

I always sleep at the same time.

Anonymous 4788


Depends on my schedule on what I'm doing the next day. Either way I don't think my sleep schedule is so good as I tend to usually get about 4-5 hrs of sleep plus no naps throughout the day.

During weekdays it is usually between 7 to 8 AM.
Weekends are from 11 AM to 12 PM.

As for going to bed it's usually about the same time between 2:30 AM to 3:30 AM. I'm a night owl, but I always want to wake up in the morning to have as much time to do work so then I can have more time to goof off.

Anonymous 4792

This week I've been going to sleep around 2am and waking up around 10:30-11. I usually go to bed later, though. Naturally, I function best going to bed early and waking up early. But my work/living situation doesn't allow for that at the moment.

Anonymous 8892

I sleep from 23h to 7h/ 11pm to 7am. I can't change it but I'm quite okay with it, I love doing things in the morning although I wish I could be so active at night as well.

Anonymous 8896

I'm an extreme night owl who also happens to need 9 hours of sleep per night. I usually end up sleeping 2am-11am, if not later. Wish I could have a more normal sleep schedule.


eyebrow fit Anonymous 8666[Reply]

Hey there, what style of eyebrow should I head for? I have a textbook definition of a heart shape face yet I have prominent fierce eyes. My eyebrows don't help soften my look. I keep them in clean shape, just waxed out dead space hairs every 2 weeks. Does not drastically change my shape doing that.

I've had an arch thin eyebrow before and I didnt like it. I think it was too dramatic for my face. That was years ago so maybe Im open to the idea again. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Anonymous 8668

go to the most expensive eyebrow salon near you. get them to pick the shape for you. then just keep tweezing when hairs grow back.

Anonymous 8692


Anonymous 8796

Eyebrow styles are a fad and I would not go after some specific shape to "fit" your face. For example, in the chart anon posted just above, the high arch examples already look stodgy and out of fashion to me.

Keeping them neat like you do is the most important thing, but after that is keeping them (reasonably) even. For you, OP, I would pluck above the brows where they are higher towards the outside of your face, and try to get the top line smoother. I think that alone would make your face a lot softer.

Anonymous 8842

Please don't try and "shape" your eyebrows. Well defined eyebrows look best so maintain them so they're neatish

How do you stay motivated for weight loss?

I find it a hard time keeping motivated for weight loss. It doesn't help that I'm a foodie and seek food out for emotional comfort. And I have no self discipline.

I'm just curious how other people stay motivated. Do you set up wallpapers? Keep photos around. How do you remind yourself?

That's a bit extreme. But I find very thin legs appealing.
I don't follow her drama but wasn't it revealed that it was her mother pressuring her to be like that?

Anonymous 8786

I never really followed her either, but yeah there's nothing wrong with being thin. It's just fetishising it is what's weird. You never know if being just thin will be enough, if it gives you that kind of feeling. Might be addicting.

I don't wear it normally, I ordered it to wear for prom (kinda cringe when I think back on it), I feel bad about it just hanging in my closet, but I really have no occasion to wear it to, I only leave my house to go to college. I wanted to wear it to the zoo but it could get ruined there, my friend suggested wearing it to concerts, but I only go to black metal concerts… I think if you want to wear it out and about it's better to get the short version like in the pic (I have an ankle length version) because it has a layer of tulle that could catch on things and get ruined.
Also if you buy it, this is maybe just my experience but I got both the shirt and the dress in size M and the shirt is a bit too small and the dress is a bit too big.

Why do people spend money on this plastic garbage?

Anonymous 8713

If you're into victorian/lolita etc fashion, there are SUPER cute blouses there for crazy prices (if you buy during the right time + using coupons).I got a couple of black lolita blouses that way and they're very good quality.Other than that, in my experience ali express is a mixed bag and you should comb thru reviews carefully before making a purchase.If there are few or no reviews, avoid.

eating disorder thread Anonymous 4629[Reply]

eating disorder thread - its time for another

do you have an eating disorder?
which one?
are you attempting recovery?
how long have you had it?
what caused it?
how does it disrupt your daily life, if it does?

i have a purging disorder.
i kind of want to attempt recovery sometimes, then i see something like my crush looking happier talking to another girl thats skinnier than me, i think about how much better i could look/how i could compensate for my stupid ugly fact, and i think about the comments my dad gives me when i 'eat bad' even though im 19 bmi/skinnier than him (hes overweight, i think.) ive had mine since i was 13. i was a fat child growing up because my parents didnt know how to feed me, and instead of giving me healthy food they just called me fat/made fun of me. it disrupts my daily life heavily because i cant eat anything without purging after, and it just ruins my mood and has disrupted my health. ill be devastated if i go up 0.1 a pound

>do you have an eating disorder?

>which one?
not diagnosed
>are you attempting recovery?
fuck no
>how long have you had it?
over a year now, but i've always been odd towards food and self confidence
>what caused it?
i just looked at my weight and kinda snapped. never liked my body and i felt as if i'd been eating way too much recently, started restricting, kinda found my way into online communities. not sure when i started getting fat because i never had many pictures taken but i know i was overweight at 11.
>how does it disrupt your daily life, if it does?
i can't eat without thinking about the calories, i can't stop thinking about food, i started cutting and i can't get clean from that, my body image is worse than ever, i can't eat food that i used to enjoy, my restriction means i spike in eating even more than i ever did from time to time (today i ate half a pack of biscuits), generally i just want to die

Has quarantine made anyone's ED worse? Everything is triggering, including specific convo with friends, but I can’t say anything because I don’t want them to feel bad. Can’t go to pro-ana sites because it'll just make me feel shittier.

Anonymous 8411


>do you have an eating disorder?


>which one?

binging without any purging though I have thought strongly about it when at my lowest.

>are you attempting recovery?

there are periods of trying to be better, but I have relapsed hard this year.

>how long have you had it?

thinking back, maybe it started when I started college and could buy my own food - leading to hording snacks for myself to eat when stressed. so about 10 years?

>what caused it?

>do you have an eating disorder
>which one
>are you attemptting recovery
yes, ive stopped purging a few months ago but the urge is very hard to fight
>how long have you had it
8 years
>what caused it
i was overweight in middle school (5'3, 180 lbs), my family bullied the hell out of me and caused me to really hate my body, my weight has fluctuated a lot in my teen years. currently 130 lbs
>how does it disrupt your daily life
i cant relax at home because i would only think about how i could sneak into the bathroom and purge. the urge has lessened lately but worsened because of quarantine. all i do is fucking eat and vomit.

The depop "thrift" market is def annoying and dumb, but I wanna know where y'all live where every thrift store trip is a slam dunk. I live in a small midwest city and all the places here are mostly piles upon piles of ugly early-to-mid 2000s stuff and the worst of fast fashion from 3 years ago. I don't even bother to look at pants/jeans because it's literally all low-rise/bootcut/etc mall crap from like 2010. To be fair I'm really picky but I'm also thorough and it can be difficult to impossible to find stuff worth buying, let alone interesting pieces that have the thrift/vintage look.

I can't afford to rn bc unemployed new grad but if I could I would probably, shamefully, buy stuff from depop bc there are so many desirable items that I'd have to search for an eternity to find in my area. It's a college town so maybe the thrift stacies are snapping up good shit before I can get to it? The plus side I guess is that Goodwill is still relatively cheap here, although prices have risen somewhat in recent years.

Anonymous 8462

I live in eastern Europe and we have stores that get old clothes from all over Europe; there isn't really much "vintage" or whatever looking clothes, there's mostly dingy clothes but I find interesting things often too. Usually the prices will be up to 10$ but eventually they will reduce the prices to a dollar an item. Of course by that time there's mostly the dingy clothes left but I managed to find cool things even then. I think it's because thrifting is not popular with young people here, so there's nobody to buy clothing in smaller sizes so it's all left for me muahahaha
I wish I could take you shopping here with me.

Anonymous 8498

There's a cute thrift shop near me that's closing due to Corona. :( on the plus side I got some nice long skirts for $2.50 each.

Anonymous 8687

Has anyone used ThredUp? It's an online thrift store.

I've gotten a lot of stuff off of that site lately, like a brand new pair of shell toe addidas and a nice gap trenchcoat. All were reasonably priced for the item and quality. It's not "thrift store" prices, but you can narrow down your fav brands and styles, and they offer nice discounts. It's for sure cheaper and more "ethical" than buying muhfastfashun
