Foundation! Just look at Tammy Faye.
@yakkoTDI Does anybody under the age of 40 know who Tammy Faye is?
I’m old enough to remember her and I would contend that her mascara and eye shadow contributed far more to her garish appearance than her foundation.
@DrWorm Honestly it depends on the year. I have seen some photos from her earlier life where she looks normal.
Mascara. Make people think you are awake.
@heartny Yes! If nothing else, I have to wear mascara.
@iluvmingos Ditto. I never leave home without it.
@heartny @iluvmingos Eyeliner + mascara. I do like that I don’t have to wear anything else with a mask, maybe concealer.
@heartny @i would not have thought of mascara as the single thing someone would use. I thought it was lipstick. (Pre-pandemic mask era)
@Fuzzalini @heartny I am WAY too uncoordinated to put on eyeliner, lol. I’ve tried and look like I have a black eye.
Where’s the option: “I’m masculine, so I have no idea.”
Or the option I look better without it!!
@hchavers @Lynnerizer If wearing makeup becomes mainstream for men, they’ll first have to market it as surface prep, primer and colorcoat.
@hchavers @Lynnerizer @mehcuda67 if men started wearing makeup, the mens version would likely be 1/3 of what women spend AND it would be a one step process.
Just skip the makeup. You’re beautiful without it.
Definitely eyebrow stamps. The more incongruent and frightening the better! If meh ever sells eyebrow stamps, I will buy them. To frighten people.
I probably meant incongruous. Meh.
@kerryzero Both incongruent (e.g. two eyebrows of different length) and incongruous (e.g. eyebrows that don’t match the color of the rest of your hair) make for a pretty frightening look.
@kerryzero They did sell those hideous eye shadow “stamp” things about a year or so ago. I don’t understand why anyone would ever need them.
I voted contouring just because it’s the most feminizing part for those of us that need that kind of thing.
I have 3 witty replies, but couldn’t choose just one, so you tell me which I should go with…
Makeup success? Is that like with “makeup sex”?
Makeup success? You mean when facial recognition AI won’t work?
Makeup success? Why don’t you just ask Nancy Pelosi?; she always looks downright irresistible! (It’s got to be the makeup.)
@phendrick lol voting for the makeup sex
I miss makeup sex. When you’re still so recently married that your wife still puts on makeup before you make love. After a really good bout, the pillow looks like somebody used it to suffocate a clown.
Just sit there and lick your eyebrows…
Oh, I thought you said “makeout.”
Trowel & paint roller.
The closer you look to this handsome & powerful gentleman at the end of your session, the better you’ll do with the ladies!
@tohar1 will I do ok with the men? Am I doing this right???
@RiotDemon Works for me, anyways!
@RiotDemon @tohar1 So your vote would be eyeliner? (Amazing look - those contacts are scary!)
@RiotDemon @tohar1 I have those contacts!
Forget expensive blush and eye shadow… Red food colouring and watercolours!
You can save money by also using your lipstick as blush.
Obviously the cholas of the 90’s got it right with the dark brown lipliner.
@kittykat9180 It’s all about the butthole lips. What man or woman doesn’t want to plant a sloppy wet kiss on a butthole?
Not wearing any
So mostly I use makeup while being spooky to accentuate looking dead, but Zoom has made me aware that, for real world stuff? Probably I need to add some blush so I can convince people I’m alive.
Although I did find a nice zombie backdrop, just in case I forget.
@brainmist Don’t mess with the blush. A little bit of green accent lighting from the sides would do wonders.
