So far I look pretty good with black eyeliner. Since I only wear cosmetics for my costumes now, I don't mind going for dramatic colors and lines. Don't really need subtlety when I'm going around in a corset and panties.
I just want you(and everyone) to know that the stuff I linked is the Expensive Shit, and you can find drugstore brands that do similar things. So basically, if makeup were drugs, and I was your dealer, I'd basically be leading you straight to the dopest dope.
I could wax poetic about the benefits of gel eyeliner vs. liquid vs. pencil. But I don't usually. Because I'm afraid people will think I am dumb and/or shallow/more preoccupied with looks than I am I guess. (Holla if you're tired of the False pretty/smart dichotomy women/girls have to deal with.)
i think most people here (especially this thread) would just assume that you're highly knowledgable about makeup. which, by the way, is a subset of knowledge that people across the planet get paid nontrivial sums of money to possess.
