The Make-Up Thread

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

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!

My apologies for not having done a Make-Up Thread since—eek!—last August! I can't even remember the last time I wore make-up, so I haven't had anything to post. And still don't, really!

But, in make-up adjacent news, I recently purchased Lush's Eau Roma Water toner, and, although I've only used it a couple of times so far, I really like it a lot.

I've never seen a toner in a spray before, and it's such a good idea! To be honest, I haven't even used the product long enough to know if it's making a meaningful difference for my skin, but it's so refreshing that I kind of don't even care, 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.
