Hi all, I feel stuck in a rut. I’ve been doing my makeup the same way for years and hair as well. Y’all are so pretty here so I thought I’d ask for some tips so I can feel prettier lol

Feeling prettier in my experience leads to looking prettier.

 

I think you look gorgeous, but that doesn't really matter, does it? It might make you feel good for a moment, but I'm a stranger on the internet. You have to live with yourself every day. If makeup makes you feel pretty, look up ways to emphasize your favorite facial feature. If clothing makes you feel pretty, wear clothes that show off the parts of your body you like the most. If you don't have things about yourself you're happy with, find them. Even if it's just something you hate the least.

 

Do skincare. Take baths. Drink water. Take care of yourself. Light a fucking candle, get a 100kill streak on COD, idk. Anything that makes you happy. Happy looks good on everybody.

Ah, you're already pretty. You can just try new hairstyles and new makeup styles for fun and you will still look pretty.

Pampering myself with a hot bath, using scented lotion afterwards, doing my hair differently, doing my nails, and trying out new makeup makes me feel prettier.

Okay. First thought, beautiful. Now, I would not overdo the brows as much because then it requires your eyes to be more done and then it’s just too harsh! Your lips are so cute! I like the lipstick colors but you might try to experiment with options. I’d place bets on that! YouR hair is gorgeous (jealous) but MAYBE you could try like a temporary sheen or tone. They have glaze with flickers of dark cherry or caramel... ugh, my lady you are moments away from being a perfect 10!

Oh, yeah and mAYBE, a little bit more shape in the haircut. Not overly layered just a little something
Edit: or maybe style it so there are a few well placed curves.

Okay now I’m probably going overboard with suggestions but did you ever think about not using such a harsh line on the eyeliner? I think your eyes would look nothing short of dreamy with a blended, smoked out liner. Ugh!! Perfect!!

I think you're very very pretty so can't go much higher than that.

OK, advices since that's what you want, maybe try some of the following:

     - eyes: some pastel green or orange or pink eyeshadow and leave out the eyeliner and overdoing the eyebrows

     - eyes: smokey eyes

     - lips: magenta or violet lipstick, matte not liquid

     - cheekbones: some highlighter

     - hair: dark chocolate brown, layered and with soft waves on the length

Also, please don't hate me for saying it, gaining a bit of weight, so your face looks fresher.

Maybe try styling your hair with one of those wave crimpers? Also try only using eyeliner on the outer corners. And a dewy lip in a plummy or darker maybe color.

Omg thank you, I’ve been doing my eyeliner like that forever, I tried using less on just the top and it looked way better!

And thanks, I keep trying to find the motivation to gain a few pounds but I always talk myself out of it

ooh, what kind of liner do you need to have it get blended and smoky? I usually always do liquid!

Oh, well you’d have to do a pencil. I like Marc Jacobs but that’s very pricey. Ulta carries a super cheap one that I usually end up getting called Essence.Long Lasting Eye Pencil. It’s like $2.50 or something. It’s called “automatic” because it requires no sharpening (same as Marc Jacobs). The key is to find a pencil that is soft enough to smudge but then sets so it doesn’t continue to wear off all day. You can use your finger or better yet a smoke brush (google). And if you can afterward set it close to the lashes with a dark shimmer charcoal or just black shadow. Just right at the lash line.
