"Good Makeup | Bad Makeup | No Makeup"
Thu Feb-19-15 11:24 AM by Very-Effortless

  

          

I was looking at the reaction to those un-retouched Beyonce photos and I'm thinking that people aren't really understanding how bad makeup can make you look worse than no makeup at all.

In my opinion, L'Oreal is pretty bad makeup - their foundation is like $10: it creases like no one's business, leaves your pores hella exposed and doesn't blend well. Normally, I spend around $40 on really good foundation. I'm sure Beyonce doesn't wear L'oreal on a regular basis but they probably put her in it for that particular photoshoot. As someone brought up in that post, even when TMZ and random photographers catch Beyonce off-guard, her skin doesn't look like that on a regular basis.

Hell, I'll even use myself as an example:

This is me wearing my normal $40 foundation: http://instagram.com/p/ygfdI8yqD2/?modal=true
Look at that fucking coverage! YAS!

This is me wearing no makeup: http://instagram.com/p/qiYOxASqA5/?modal=true
My freckles and pores in all of their glory!

This is me in $20 foundation: http://instagram.com/p/qhbTLayqAA/?modal=true
The $20 foundation isn't as cheap as L'oreal but you can still see that my skin looks worse than when I'm wearing no makeup at all. All bumpy, poor coverage, my forehead is super-creased up.

So let's make this a sharing post! Post your good makeup, no makeup, bad makeup pics. Beyonce isn't alone in this shit. #solidarity

While I've given up my membership in the Beyhive, I think people are making too much about how she looks without makeup. She's still a very beautiful woman. I don't wear make up at all...and to be honest, you don't need to either...you are just as beautiful without it.

at least all that foundation. it can help you picture well, but in the meantime you might be walking around looking like a mannequin. not you personally....but make-up can do that to faces.

There's definitely a difference between day-time makeup, night-time/ photography makeup.

The $40 foundation I only use when I'm going out at night or know I will take a lot of pics and need to look BEAT.

I never wear makeup during the day. Like at all. Not even mascara.

granted while i get envious of clear skin it's usually on dudes
like i KNOW women get blemishes. we just do. we got hormones and makeup and shit

when i see a dude like tpain or pharrell i get mad as shit. skin all clear. fuck them dudes.

honestly i wear little to no makeup. i wear makeup when i'm djing or going on a date or to a party. to work im barefaced (unless there's a work related event or big meeting). i'm barefaced with TONS of freckles and acne scars and small breakouts and all that and i don't care. my mom was really aghast when she realized i don't wear makeup regularly.

i don't wear foundation. i wear NARS tinted moisturizer, apply a sheer MAC powder over that w/ a brush, add some bronzer. done.

then i do some eyeliner on my outer lids and maybe lipstick if i feel like it

you can still see blemishes.
To me Makeup intensifies blemishes because it gets caught in the cracks and creases.
It also depends on the state of your skin. If it's looking puffy and water deprived...it'll show regardless of how much you pay for makeup.

A little tends to go a long way with better foundations because they have a higher percentage of pigment.

cheaper foundations use less pigment so you have to use more to get good coverage and when you lay it on thick, it creases with frequency.

And that sun-soaked pic is the bomb by the way.

As is using a powder on top. A translucent one really helps with diffusing light and making wrinkles, creases and imperfections invisible.

especially when you need to use a mattifier.
I've found primer makes my skin oilier.

I do however set my face with translucent powder.

what matters is your application technique and choosing the best foundation for your skin type.

i don't wear foundation routinely but when i do for example i have a date. i used a clay mask to suck as much stuff as possible out of my pores, then i exfoliate, then i moisturize, then i prime (around the eyes with one thing and then in the t-zone with something else to fill in pores) then i apply my foundation (usually with a sponge or brush), then powder, then a translucent hd powder.

beyonce's skin looks horribly prepped and like she doesn't take good care of it in these pics. maybe it's a post baby breakout / pregnancy hormonal issue, but i kind of have a hard time believeing they are even real.

I might post pictures later. I have a lot of stuff to do.

This is my standard makeup look. I have to confess the foundation is the only drugstore thing on my face except the mascara and elf hd powder on top. The rest is benefit, cargo, Mac etc. http://s28.postimg.org/umjcxvb25/image.jpg

Here's no makeup, messy hair, glasses. I don't know why this picture is sideways but it is. I wake up like this.

I wish more women were comfortable enough with themselves to go out without makeup.

There's a chick that works at one of the grocery stores nearby. Usually goes to work without a drop of makeup and she's cute as hell, lil freckles and all. I was in her check out line about a month ago when this cat good an in his 60's poured on the compliments about how refreshing it was to see a young lady without makeup and complaining about how most young chicks he sees looks like drag queens or mannequins with the way they do their makeup.

I'm sure he was trying to push up on her sugar daddy-style, but what he said was 100% truth.

I was telling everybody the bar got one, I even told my wife about her... she was that cute and my wife doesn't mind when I tell her about shit like that.

Super Bowl Sunday this young woman shows up looking a hot mess with makeup caked on and pointy cat eyes. She lasted one night.

Everyone looked at me like WTF. I kept repeating "this isn't the same woman"

my wife was like "nigga, do better"

The irony is my mom's a licensed esthetician and is a makeup junkie... lolsmh

At the absolute most, I *might* put a lil bronzer on. That NARS multi-stick is awesome. But I think I might only use it a handful of times a year.

Last/only time I can remember wearing foundation was for prom way back in high school.

Most of the time, I just do a bold lip: https://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xfp1/v/t1.0-9/968994_10100413266951997_2007405082_n.jpg?oh=b3668e60edec6dac25f5ec1846703a6a&oe=554E8897&__gda__=1435352269_4fca2ab27253f59dcd7b904acced8ec8

TO me IMO!!! It's all about the brand, your skin type, and how you PREP your skin.

Now, I don't wear liquid foundation period because I don't have to and when I've tried (Laura Mercier) it made my skin breakout. I usually wear a powder or cream coverage and make artist can never tell I don't have on the triple layers. (Concealer, foundation, and powder finish) And I used to work with a lot of top makeup artist.

I don't have the best skin, I get breakouts before my cycle but I prep the hell out of my skin and I moisturize it really well. So it looks good with and without makeup. I have never worn drug store makeup outside of my favorite Covergirl's mascara, Jordana eyeliner, and NYX penicils. Well I'm lying but I've never bought the foundation I'll say. Lol I just figure if I'm going to put it all over my face it's worth some money!

However, I have friends that use high and low makeup and their faces always looks flawless. One of my friends wears only Chanel and her face still looks meh because she doesn't take care of her skin! She offen sleeps in her damn make up too!

Full beat - (45mins of makeup concealor, highlight, contour, powder, finishing powder, eyeshadow, brows,and finishing spray) - http://i61.tinypic.com/mt5j7s.jpg

Half beat- (20mins of makeup concealer, powder, brows, and lipstick) - http://i58.tinypic.com/35hiseo.jpg

No Makeup- http://i61.tinypic.com/260sl5x.jpg

makeup makes you look weird, it ruins your natural beauty.

Fresh faced you is, by far, the best look IMO.

However, ladies LIKE me do makeup for fun and for sport. Women who do makeup typically do it for other women, it shows personality and skill. Like being an artist of the face.

I'm a girly girl, if you tell me I can put purple and glitter on my face? I'm going to do it! Now, on another note. I know men don't like the idea of makeup. I get it! But I'm dating several men right now and they think I look pretty hot when I go out with my makeup on. So while they may not like the idea? It's really not hindering me.

And my pic with no makeup was a night that I went out with no makeup. I put it on when I feel like it. I don't lean on my makeup.

I will have times I just don't feel like it and will go natural everything!

Marketing/Media convinces you that you should?

I understand why white women wear it, but I don't understand why black women do it.

No make up you look best to me.

Though it would be better if you tested all the different looks with the same lighting

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

at most, i'll wear a tinted moisterizer and that's in lieu of foundation and i tend to mix it with a thick moisterizer too.

i mostly wear eyeliner and some kind of chapstick. sometimes i'll wear lipstick. i'm so lazy to put on mascara all the time bc it's a bitch to take off. same with eye shadow, i'm not good at doing cool things with it so its rare that i wear that.

I hate their foundation. Actually, the last pic where I have on bad foundation, it's MAC foundation.
