The Make-Up Thread

Here is your semi-regular make-up thread, to discuss all things make-up.

Do you have a make-up product you'd recommend? Are you looking for the perfect foundation which has remained frustratingly elusive? Need or want to offer make-up tips? Searching for hypoallergenic products? Want to grouse about how you hate make-up? Want to gush about how you love it?

Whatever you like—have at it!

Another look on the pink-red spectrum, which tends to work well with my skin tone: Neutrogena SkinClearing Mineral Powder in Classic Ivory; Too Faced's Perfect Flush Blush in Something About Berry; ColourPop's (regrettably named) Slave2Pink eye shadow; Almay's Black Steel mascara; and ColourPop's Bossy lipliner and lipstick.

And, clearly, I still have no idea what I'm doing with my hair. I'm trying to grow it out, just for a change, but I am very much in that WHAT IS EVEN GOING ON I CAN'T STAND THIS I'M JUST GOING TO CHOP IT ALL OFF AGAIN stage, lol.

Anyway! What's up with you?

Please note, as always, that advice should be not be offered to an individual person unless they solicit it. Further: This thread is open to everyone—women, men, genderqueer folks. People who are make-up experts, and people who are make-up newbies. Also, because there is a lot of racist language used in discussions of make-up, and in make-up names, please be aware to avoid turns of phrase that are alienating to women of color, like "nude" or "flesh tone" when referring to a peachy or beige color. I realize some recommended products may have names that use these words, so please be considerate about content noting for white supremacist (and/or Orientalist) product naming.
