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!

Deeks and I had a sleepover last weekend, where we had lots o' fun with make-up! Probably our favorite item of the evening was my recently acquired Infallible Paints Metallics Lip Color from L'Oréal in Galactic Foil. GALACTIC FOIL!

Fuck yeah metallic lips!

Hulk pretty!

(As always, I'm not affiliated with L'Oréal in any way, nor am I getting anything in exchange for this recommendation. I just like the product!)

It's funny how sleepovers when you're in your 40s are basically the same as when you're 13. At least in my house, 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.
