I don't watch too many beauty/fashion YTers but I adore Fleur de Force, and Sammi Maria from beautycrush is lovely too.

Also delighted that colourpop is now out in the UK, my sister and I placed an order within 24 hours of them starting shipping to the UK, oops.

How did I just discover this golden thread ?!!!

Best skincare routine (10 minutes) massage face for 3.5 minutes with coconut oil making sure it gets into all the nooks and seeps into pores, 3.5 minutes of massaging face with hot/lukewarm water to remove oil, use any face wash (I use shiseido ) and massage foamy face wash, for the last 3 minutes use cold water and massage face. Honestly it clears out all pores and prevents any breakout. Afterwards you can see how clean you face becomes. Also I've had friends with dry and oily skin use it and it's still magic, it takes some time but it's worth it :bigthumbsup:

If you wake up with zit or pimple: take 3 cubes of ice and wrap foil around it and put it in plastic bag. Hold that on the zit for as long as you can handle it. Keep repeating this cycles until it feels numb. Put a huge dab of minty toothpaste (I don't know why this works but it does, trust me). If you have to go out in public put concealer on area. Repeat this for 2 days and the zit will be gone (atleast it works for me :lol: )

A good moisturizer is ibuki shiseido (buy the face wash and moisturizer)

Best foundation for me is Estée Lauder but even maybelline fitme works really well!

My go to blush (this is my life it is sooooo good) is the Maybelline baby skin cheek flush in "pop of peach" its a bright, highlighter-like blush that makes you shine and works with every skin tone and is subtle so it gives you a nice glow :love1:

Concealer: what's a college student without concealer?? That answer is too terrifying to consider :shock: my fave concealer is the Maybelline Fitme concealer. What works for it is that it isn't heavy or streaky and doesn't dry out skin.

Favorite mascara: Clinique is amazing in mascaras, protip go on eBay and get the sample sized mascaras for only $4-9. Honestly they last me forever and are so affordable

Brows: I prefer straight brows because they work with my eye shape. I like using NYC pencil in dark brown and just bringing in my brows towards my nose to elongate them.

Honestly above makeup your skin is the most important and it's better for it to be healthy and springy which is why I limit my use of skin makeup and instead go for sunscreen and a tiny bit of foundation.

Even though I'm incredibly lazy when it comes to skin care I might even try to do this. My skin is so oily and full of breakouts at the moment and I'm coming into summer so its not getting any better :cry: . I've never heard of coconut oil being used on the face before.

My favourite thing with beauty is colour correcting (especially the green one) as I find that this combined with concealer is generally enough as a daily light coverage. My go-to concealer is the Rimmel Wake me up as I find that most others crease under my eyes, including the nars concealer that everyone raves about (cue the disappointment :sideeye: )

I'm in love with this thread. :stan:
Okay, I have really oily skin and I want to get it as clear as possible.
Would the coconut oil help? Or is it just adding more oil to your face?
Does anyone else have some good tips for oily skin? Thanks

Stop drinking/eating dairy 8-) I know it sounds drastic and it is, but give it a try for 2 weeks and see the oils rapidly reduce. It's been a life saver for me and when I started seeing my dermatologist, they told me it's the first thing they tell people to stop consuming. You wouldn't even believe the improvement it's made in my skin; almond skin tastes a heck of a lot better anyway.

Once you get your natural oils under control minus the outside influence of diet, you'll probably find your skin responds better to natural oils like coconut oil. I use it to remove my make-up and usually leave it on my skin for about 10 minutes as well and it doesn't make my skin oily at all in the long run, just really soft and calmer in discolouration in general. It's great for the skin, I love it.

I agree with dairy, 100%. I use extra virgin olive oil as a makeup remover/moisturizer. My face always breaks out if I try coconut oil, though I use it all over my body and hair. Evoo is my lifesaver!

The coconut oil routine works for both types of skin since you massage it then rinse it off twice, once with cold water and once with hot and in addition use a foamy cleanser which removes any excess oil. I recommend the shisiedo face wash as its very deep cleaning. At the end you moisterize if you have dry skin or you dont if you have oily :bigthumbsup:

<3 This thread.

I go with a pretty simple makeup look most days, my favourite products include:

- Ready Set Gorgeous concealer by Maybelline in Fair
- Physician's Formula pressed powder in fair 01
- Maybelline 'The Blushed Nudes' Palette (Seriously, this palette is great especially for the price)
- Eyeliner brand varies for me, I always pick liquid however.
- NARS Matte lip pencil 'Dragon Girl'
Or
- NYX lip liner in 'Nutmeg'

As for mascara, I usually skip this step as I have quite long eyelashes already.


Lately I have been looking for a red/teracotta eye shadow as I have green eyes, but have had trouble finding that specific shade. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I quite like Sleek's Sunset palette. It has quite a few reddish/orangey shades and the quality is pretty great! They're beautiful and long lasting. And the metallic quality saves them from being too "I-have-a-black-eye"-like :D

As a fellow green eyed human being, I can recommend Kat Von D's eyeshadow in Doce which I just got the other day. It's gorgeous! I want to buy more but only a couple of the shades are vegan at the moment. Her whole range is meant to be vegan eventually.

It looks like this on. Gorgeous.

Try the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette. It has red/orange-y undertones and shades and it would look absolutely superb with green eyes. The palette has 14 shades and 11 of them are matte and the other 3 are metallic/ shinny

I have a little problem with my skin and I thought you guys could help me out with it. So I have a combination-to-oily skin (around the cheeks area and on my t-zone it's oily but below my cheekbones and on my temples and between my eyebrows it's dry and sometimes flaky) and I have a lot of texture as of lately. I was wondering if there is some way to get rid or at least minimize the texture? It looks like I have layers and layers of powder on it but it's stuck in the fluff on my face :/

Have you tried any peels? I've had good results with a glycolic acid peel, specifically Collistar Pure Actives but there are heaps of similar products out there. I was also thinking of trying some of makeupartistschoice's peels.. I also recommend the Olay (Olaz in Holland) dupe for Clarisonic - it works really well in exfoliating, the skin feels very fresh afterwards. For makeup, KIKO's loose fixing powder makes the skin visibly smoother! It's not drying and after some hours you might need to blot. It still looks great though on the oily areas!

Such a good thread!

I kind of hopped on the Korean skincare trend earlier this year when I was struggling with cystic acne/left over scarring
Routine:
The Face Shop Rice Water Light Cleansing Oil
Cerave Foaming Cleanser (I'm switching to the hydrating one next tho
Cosrx Clarifying Treatment Toner
Cosrx Galactomyces Essence
Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence
Scinic Honey AIO Ampoule
Benton Aloe Propolic Soothing Gel
Benton Steam Cream
Innisfree Triple Care Sunscreen SPF50+

Occasionally I used the Dr G Brightening Peeling Gel to exfoliate, you put it on your face and massage really gently and all the dead skin basically rolls off, it looks metal af

I also love the Aussie brand Swisse - the Manuka Honey Mask, CoQ10 cream and Argan eye cream are all amazing. Also Aussies, you can get a 20% azelaic acid lotion (Ego Azclear Action Lotion) from behind the counter at Chem Warehouse (no prescription needed) for like $11.00 (warning that a lil bit goes a loong way)


In terms of hyperpigmentation/acne scarring, I mainly use stuff with niacinamide, liquorice root and azelaic acid to slowly fade it over time. I sometimes use Vit C/want to get more in the future but it seems like a bit of a minefield in terms of price/shipping/formulation so I'm kind of putting it off tbh
